Technology Development and Transfer in Agriculture S N Nigam and C L L Gowda1 Abstract Technology development is a response of scientific knowledge to the changing needs of consumers, farmers, community, country, and world trade. In the late s and early s there was a need to increase total production by intensive agriculture.

In applying technologies for adaptation, the significant synergies, trade-offs and co-benefits with mitigation should also be considered. In the context of agricultural adaptation, co-benefits are exemplified through health benefits from improved energy use, reduced urban.

      Agricultural technological adoption is mistakenly perceived as tractor mechanization. Agricultural mechanization is defined as the use of any mechanical technology and increased power to agriculture. This includes the use of tractors, animal-powered and human-powered. technology, and (4) the social system. Rogers () then defined adoption as use or non-use of a new technology by a farmer at a given period of time. This definition can be extended to all economic units in the social system. Feder et al. () distinguished individual adoption (farm level) from aggregate adoption.

Farm-level adoption of digital agriculture varies within and between countries, and uptake differs by technology. Some characterize precision agriculture uptake as rather slow. [] In the United States inprecision agriculture technologies were used on % of corn and soybean acreage.

[83]. Technology adoption in Agriculture. Technology in agriculture can be used in different aspects of agriculture such as the application of herbicide, pesticide, fertilizer, and improved seed.

Over the years, technology has proved to be extremely useful in the agricultural sector. The adoption of new technology in agriculture is, therefore, at the core of agricultural growth and, thus, rural poverty alleviation. Unfortunately, the adoption of new agricultural technology, including agricultural machinery, is seldom rapid, as a large number of factors can affect the adoption process [,, ].Cited by:   The main purpose of this paper is to introduce the modern technology adoption its importance, usage and role in agriculture improvement.

In the last century, the basic agriculture technology like. variable, technology adoption, has a binary nature taking the value of 1 for adopters (chemical fertilizer and HYV independently) and 0 for non-adopters. In this regard an econometric model employed while examining probability of farm households’ agricultural technology adoption decision.

Low adoption of agricultural marketing technologies in the field of agricultural commodities marketing is one of the main reasons for profit loss of the farmers in Bangladesh. This paper examines the factors that influence farmers' decision of modern agricultural marketing technologies adoption in Northern Bangladesh.

By using questionnaire survey the researcher collect data from farmers. Agricultural extension programmes have been one of the main conduits of addressing rural poverty and food insecurity.

This is because, it has the means to transfer technology, support rural adult learning, assist farmers in problem-solving and getting farmers actively involved in the agricultural knowledge and information system [].Extension is defined by FAO [] as; “systems that should.

Findings on level of adoption indicated among others, that farmers were at the adoption stage for technologies like weed and weed control (X=), harvesting and storing of yam/maize/cassava (X=), fertilizer and its application (X=), appropriate spacing of. other hand, intensity of adoption refers to the level of use of a given technology in any time period (Bonabana- Wabbi ).

Defining technology adoption is a complicated task since it varies with the technology being adopted. factors including poor adoption of improved technologies against pests and parasites destroying crops with developmental implications on food insecurity and poverty.

This study has been undertaken to contribute to the understanding of farm-level adoption dynamics and economic impacts of. The use of Precision Agriculture Technologies (PAT) and the adoption of innovations in agriculture are crucial for establishing the production patterns and to mitigate specific risks associated to agriculture.

In this sense, the adoption of PAT’s affect agronomic, economic and financial results of farm businesses. Agriculture is an essential component of food security, sustainable livelihoods, and economic development in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA).

Smallholder farmers, however, are restricted in the number of crops they can grow due to small plot sizes. Agriculture inputs, such as fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides, and improved seed varieties, could prove to be useful resources to improve yield.

Farmers’ changes of technology use are influenced by technical training, meeting, oral transmission, trust on technician and belief level on technology.

Men usually use technologies for rice, fruit and fish production, and women use technology for pig, chicken production. Factors that trigger adoption of new. Fortunately for the proponents of conservation agriculture, its net financial impact at the individual farm scale appears positive as well.

Since the seminal work of Crosson (), numerous financial analyses of conservation tillage adoption, whether in a developed world (e.g. Stonehouse, ) or developing world (e.g. Sorrenson,Sorrenson et al., ) context, have shown that it.

optimum input to use. An important use of information derived from a production function is in determining how much of the variable input to use. Given a goal of maximizing profit, the farmer must select from all possible input levels, the one which will result in the greatest profit.

To determine the optimum input to use, we apply two marginal. ers in Uganda on their technology adoption, including both advanced inputs and improved basic farming methods, and food security. The program, designed by the non-governmental organization (NGO) BRAC, features two main components to promote improved technology use: training; and easier and less costly access to and 1.

Social and human capital are the on-farm human elements that mediate how policy, technology, institutions and infrastructure affect input and physical capital use. Human capital directly affects whether and how technology will be adopted. Technology choice.

Conservation agriculture (CA) can. A study on the ‘Impact of Technology Adoption: Evidence from Maize and Cowpea Farmers in Northern Ghana,’ has recommended more stakeholder involvement in the agriculture sector to provide.

One of the primary constraints to increased productivity and profitability stems from the limited use of modern farming technology, equipment, and inputs. For example, although effective irrigation technology is available, Cambodian agriculture continues to rely heavily on fragile rain-fed systems focused on paddy rice production.

The lasting benefits of the improved seeds and new technology extended principally to the irrigated areas which account for about one-third of the harvested crop area. In the s, Indian agriculture policy shifted to “evolution of a production pattern in line with the demand pattern” leading to a shift in emphasis to other agricultural.Research and Technology Adoption in a Changing Agricultural Sector Technological change has been a major factor shaping agriculture in the last years [Schultz (); Cochrane ()].
