The University of California's Century Experiment (formerly known as LTRAS-Long Term Research on Agricultural Sustainability) is a year study in which researchers "measure the long-term impacts of crop rotation, farming systems (conventional, organic and mixed) and inputs of water, nitrogen, carbon and other elements on agricultural sustainability.".

Each year, the On-Farm Research Network plans a series of update meetings and invites producers to attend in order to gain valuable crop production related information from the research projects conducted by Nebraska farmers.

On-farm Research A farm is living organism containing native and cultivated animals and plants, each with their own ecology throw in people and you have a pretty complex system.

On farm research helps us strategically monitor this complex system so we can assess what works and what doesn’t. Negative impacts: the aim is to examine the impacts of contract farming on rural farm households, focusing mainly on the negative aspects that occurred before and after the household participated in sugar cane contract farming.

1. Introduction. Research has multiple impacts on society. In the light of the international discourse on grand societal challenges and sustainable development, the debate is reinforced about the role of research on economic growth, societal well-being, and environmental integrity ().Research impact assessment (RIA) is a key instrument to exploring this role ().Cited by: 8.

Introduction. Agricultural research holds a great potential for raising agricultural productivity and reducing poverty. The green revolution, which led to a doubling or tripling of yields of the major food grains in the s and 70s, was a result of major investments in national and international agricultural research (David and Otsuka, ).While there is a large volume of theoretical Cited by: ON WEATHER AND HUMAN ACTIVITIES.

Often the experiments are not well designed and probably have led to erroneous conclusions. In light of the potential importance of climate change, this paper proposes a new strategy to determine its economic impact.

We estimate the effect of weather on farm profits, conditional on county and state by year fixed effects, so the weather parameters are identified from the presumably random variation in weather across counties within states. Climate change threatens agricultural productivity worldwide, resulting in higher food prices.

Associated economic gains and losses differ not only by region but also between producers and consumers and are affected by market dynamics.

Existing animal welfare standards for legislation and food certification programmes are primarily designed to avoid harms to the livestock, with minimal consideration given to their behavioural freedoms.

Recent research has shown, however, that animal welfare should not only be evaluated by the absence of negative states but also by the presence of “good life” or positive.
