- Fenollosa Ribera, M. Loreto; Ribal Sanchis, Francisco Javier; Lidón Cerezuela, Antonio Luis; Bautista Carrascosa, Inmaculada; Juraske, R.; Clemente Polo, Gabriela; Sanjuán Pellicer, María Nieves
This article assesses the effect of management practices on the
environmental and economic performance of tigernut production.
Tigernut is a horticultural crop grown in a very limited and
homogeneous area. Results show that the environmental variability
among farms was greater than variability in costs. A selection of
practices can reduce impacts per kilogram tigernut by factors 252.5
(abiotic depletion), 33 (aquatic ecotoxicity), or 6 (global warming)
and costs by factors of between 2 and 3. The analysis shows
a positive relationship between economic and environmental performance.
Results highlight how proper management leads to both
relatively low environmental impacts and costs.
JOB SATISFACTION AND PREFERENCES REGARDING JOB CHARACTEREISTICS OF VOCATIONALS AND MASTER CRAFTSMAN SCHOLARS AND HORTICULTURE STUDENTS IN GERMANY
- Stephan G.H. MEYERDING
Labour costs account for 40 % of all the costs in German horticulture. Employee satisfaction has a significant impact on the economic and social sustainability of horticultural companies. Traditional linear relationships between environmental characteristics and subjective job satisfaction have been assumed in psychological research. Warr (2007) challenged this conception with the non-linear vitamin model. The present study examines the possibility of non-linear relationships between job characteristics and job satisfaction. For this purpose, a survey was carried out using an online and a paper-and-pencil questionnaire from August 2013 to February 2015. In addition, the preferences of employees (N=229), vocational and master...
Exportación del Mg edáfico producida por cultivos extensivos e intensivos en los distintos partidos de la provincia de Buenos Aires
- Ferro, Daniel; Machetti, Natalia; Vázquez, Mabel Elena; Abbona, Esteban
El Mg es un macronutriente secundario cuya principal pérdida en los suelos productivos es debida a la exportación agropecuaria. Argentina se caracteriza por el bajo consumo de fertilizantes magnésicos. El objetivo del trabajo fue analizar la exportación de Mg en los partidos de la provincia de Buenos Aires en la campaña 2005/06 producida por actividades agrícolas intensivas y extensivas. Se calculó la extracción para cada partido y cultivo, realizando el producto entre rendimiento, contenido del nutriente en el órgano cosechado y área cosechada. La exportación por superficie en agricultura extensiva fue mayor (6,24 kg Mg ha-1) que en horticultura (5,42...

Apricot Breeding at the Faculty of Horticulture in Lednice
- Boris Krška; Zdeněk Vachůn
The aim of the apricot-breeding program in the Horticultural Faculty in Lednice, that has been developed since 1981, is to obtain new adaptable cultivars, which combine most of the valuable biological traits. Standard breeding techniques, such as crossing by emasculation and hand pollination, self-pollination and open pollination, were employed. A total of 1.154 crossings were produced from more than 110 different parents. So far more than 20,000 seedlings have been obtained, of which about 13,000 have already been evaluated. The most interesting selections were grafted and planted in trial orchards (we now have more than 650 elite genotypes). Ten of...
Nueva escuela elemental, en Eichstätt
- HaindlEditorial, Friederich F.
A modem elementary school has been built over part of the old moat at Eichstätt. The diferences in level of the ground have been exploited in order to achieve a more interesting distribution of the school buildings.
The main building is L shaped. It contains 11 classrooms, workshops and a large recreation hall, which are located within the ground floor of one of the wings. The other wing includes the management's staircase, special classrooms, the hall porter's quarters and heating installations. Near the main building there is another block housing four classrooms, and both buildings are separated by a recreation...
Business, development and inclusive supply chains. Exploring pathways for the sustainable incorporation of the poor as suppliers in agrifood supply chains
- Borrella Alonso de la Torre, Inmaculada
El panorama global está cambiando, y esto influye sobre la forma en la que entendemos y tratamos de alcanzar un desarrollo humano sostenible. El crecimiento de la población conlleva una mayor presión sobre los recursos, pero también supone una mayor cantidad de mano de obra y de talento; la concentración en áreas urbanas está cambiando las dinámicas sociales y desafiando los canales de comercialización tradicionales, pero también genera nuevos mercados y fomenta la innovación; los cambios en la economía global están reduciendo los tradicionales desequilibrios de poder entre los países occidentales y el resto del mundo; y las crecientes interconexiones...

Determinants of Farmers’ Participation in Horticulturebased Extension Programs in Iran: Application of the Theory of Planned Behavior
- Morteza Akbari; Farahnaz Rostami; Abdolmotaleb Rezaei
This paper aims to discover the determinants of farmers’ participation
in horticulture-based Education programs in the
Western Azerbaijan province, Iran. Using the Theory of Planned
Behavior (TPB), the study also tries to make a comparison
between participants and non-participants, who have achieved
in this program. A sample of 231 farmers (137 participants and
94 non-participants) was selected based on a stratified random
sampling method. Data gathering instrument was a questionnaire
that its validity was approved by a group of experts and its
reliability was confirmed by calculating Cronbach's alpha
(α=0.71). The results showed that, there were significant
differences between participants and non-participants in agricultural
education programs in terms of all the TPB...

Oak (Quercus Floribunda): A Prominent Indigenous Multipurpose Tree for Carbon Storage and Sequestration Potential
- K. K. Pandey; T. A. Bhosale; A. K. Awasthi; Garima Gupta; Deepak Maurya
A dynamic growth model (CO2FIX) has been used for estimating the carbon sequestration potential of Oak (Quercus floribunda), an indigenous multipurpose tree used for timber, fuel wood, fiber and specially fodder in addition to its ability of soil binder. The present study has been carried out in the campus of V.C.S.G. College of Horticulture, U.U.H.F., Bharsar, Pauri Garhwal, Uttarakhand. It is capable of thriving on snow and heavy rainfall condition. CO2FIX was parameterized for a simulation of 100 years respectively. The results indicate that the long term tree biomass accumulated was 120.11 t/ha in above ground and 79.89 t/ha in...
