Written by Joseph ONWUMERE, Chinonso Henry ENE

This study is a comparative analysis of the effects of pre and post-consolidation policy in Nigerian banks on agribusiness sector performance which covered 1995-2014 periods. Secondary data from CBN annual reports and statement of accounts, CBN bulletin and National Bureau of Statistics were used for the study. The data were analyzed by the use of t-students distribution. This paper used agribusiness output, number of agribusiness entrepreneurs that accessed the credits, government credit allocation to agribusiness and value of banks' credit allocation to agribusiness as indices to determine agribusiness sector performance by comparing the pre-mergers and acquisition consolidation policy with the post-merger and acquisition consolidation policy for the period under review. Findings shown that the purposes for credit allocation among agribusiness sub-sectors in the pre and post-merger and acquisition consolidation policy in the Nigerian banking institutions were mainly for the production of crop, livestock, fishery, mixed farming and others. In the post-merger and acquisition consolidation policy era, number of agribusiness farmers that accessed the credit through Agricultural Credit Guaranteed Scheme Fund (ACGSF), government credit to agribusiness enterprises, value of banks' credit to agribusiness, agribusiness output was higher than the pre-merger and acquisition consolidation era of Nigerian banking institutions. The study concluded that consolidation policy in the Nigerian banking institutions influenced the agribusiness sector performance. It was recommended that efforts must be made by the Central Bank of Nigeria to see that such policy is sustained.

This study analyzed the effect of tenancy status on productivity of rice farmers in Bende Local Government Area of Abia state, Nigeria. Specifically, it identified the method of land ownership/pattern, analyzed the productivity levels of the rice farmers, examined the effects of tenancy status on the productivity of rice farmers and identified the perceived constraints faced by the rice farmers. Multi-stage sampling techniques were used in selecting 60 respondents used for the study. Data collection was by use structured questionnaire administered to the respondents and data analysis was use of such statistical tools as frequency tables, percentages, means, t-test and multiple regression analysis. The result showed that majority (71.67%) of the rice farmers in the in the study area rented land for their farming activities and that 53.33% of the respondents had a productivity range of 2.1 – 3.0, with a mean productivity of 2.2. The result showed that the productivity of owner occupier farmers were significantly higher than that of their counterparts. The significant variable influencing the productivity of the farmers were age of the farmer, farming experience, labour, capital, tenancy status, farm size, planting materials and fertilizer and agrochemicals. The major constraints faced by the rice farmers were inadequate capital, high cost of inputs, poor extension/advisory series, pest attack, and limited and high cost of lan

Management ethics, the determination at what means “fair”, ”correct” and “just” in decisions and action that affect the others, passes the simple problems like corruption, steal and swindle. It is focused on human interrelations such as between employers and employees, sellers and clients, shareholders, creditors, distributors, community members. The solving of the ethics dilemmas in management do not represent just a delimitation between good and bad, correct and incorrect, but also it is a complex judgement aiming a balance between economical and social performance of the firm, taking into consideration all what could happened. Solving ethics dilemmas by managers is not easy, and the decision will depend all the time of their personality, experience, education, feelings, attitude and personal values. The communication is part of the organization infrastructure. Any effort for the development of an organization should be considered a priority for the human factor. An efficient communication is the only way in which employees can correlate their efforts, whose quality is leading to the organization success.

EU FARM SUPPORT POLICY: AN ANALYSIS OF DIRECT PAYMENTS IMPLEMENTATION IN SPAIN

Published in Scientific Papers. Series "Management, Economic Engineering in Agriculture and rural development", Vol. 15 ISSUE 4
Written by Liliana CIMPOIES

Direct payments are meant to support EU farmers being the main component of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) and receiving special attention during the new 2014-2020 reform. First introduced in 1992 after MacSharry reform and known as coupled payments (payments per hectare and animal head), they were designed to support farmers income. In 2003, the decoupled payments focused at encouraging farmers have been introduced in order to enhance the competitiveness and sustainability of the EU agriculture. In Spain, in 2006 the new changes in the Single Payment Scheme (SPS) were introduced, at the beginning according to the regime of partial decoupling. In 2012, the coupled payments were integrated under the SPS or transformed into additional payment. The aim of this paper is to analyze the application of direct payments, as the main support tool for EU farmers based on Spain experience. In this context, the authors have used secondary data provided by the Spanish Agrarian Guarantee Fund (FEGA) and the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Environment of Spain (MAGRAMA) concerning the amount of allocated direct payments in Spain, number of beneficiaries and their distribution by territorial aspect. So far, the distribution of direct payments in Spain, similarly to other member states, is unequal, as a result of CAP development, diversity of production and the use of historical references to fix the decoupled payments per farm.

The purpose of work consisted in the evaluation of the role of liquid organic fertilizer obtained from crude worm compost and drinking water in a ratio of 1: 100, on the process of emergence, physiological development and maize productivity. The experiment was conducted in the field conditions of Technological and Experimental Station "Maximovca". As a material for research was used a variety of maize M-450 and liquid organic fertilizer obtained from worm compost. In the experiment were included three lots: one control (with natural background) and two experimental: experimental I - maize seeds were macerated and fertilized, in three rounds, with liquid organic fertilizer (from considerations 4t / ha); experimental II - the seeds macerated in the same fertilizer without additional fertilization. It was found that macerating of seeds in extract obtained from crude worm compost and water and its administration as additional food, in triplicate, accelerated the emergence of maize, had improved physiological development and increased maize harvest with 18.26%. On the lot where were used only macerated seeds but not performed the supplementary feeding the maize harvest surpassed that of the control lot with 10.72%. So, it was found the beneficial influence of liquid organic fertilizer obtained from crude worm compost on the process of maize development.

EVALUATION OF THE IMPACT OF AGRICULTURAL ENTERPRISES ON DEVELOPMENT OF AGRICULTURAL LAND MARKET IN SLOVAKIA

Published in Scientific Papers. Series "Management, Economic Engineering in Agriculture and rural development", Vol. 14 ISSUE 4
Written by Lubica RUMANOVSKÁ, Marián KOVÁČIK

The paper focuses on the situation of the agricultural land market in Slovakia and in selected region of the SR – Nitra region, on the application and development of agricultural land prices in Slovakia and on the factors that influence the decisions of agricultural enterprises on the market with agricultural land. In this paper were used primary data obtained with interview method realized within the research of Department of European policies, Slovak University of Agriculture during the period 2012 – 2013 in all districts of region Nitra. The evaluation of the impact of agricultural subject on agricultural land market in Slovakia was realized by using the method of regression analysis. Based on the results from the research we can state that entrepreneurs still prefer more to rent land then to purchase a land. The main factors influencing the decision-making process of agricultural subjects are ownership fragmentation, the fragmentation of agricultural plots and business's financial situation and profitability of the purchase. Many entrepreneurs pointed to this indicator as one of the most influential in terms of increasing the market price, respectively as a reason for not signing the lease agreement. The agricultural land market in Slovakia is emerging but still not sufficiently transparent. Further development of the market will continue to be marked by the overall economic situation in agriculture, relatively low competitiveness of Slovak farmers in the European market and reduced profitability. Research showed that the most pronounced effect on the price of agricultural land and the amount of rent for agricultural land has the number of enterprises. Growing number of farms will increase the price or amount of rent for agricultural land.
