Assignment Three. Agricultural Systems: Investigating Conservation Agriculture and Low Input Agriculture
After reviewing some of the documents that are listed in the Assignment Three Discussion, do an Internet search on Conservation Agriculture or Low Input Agriculture for your project’s country. Look especially for any scientific studies that demonstrate the viability of one of these two agricultural systems.
List three (and provide the Internet link) of the handbooks, documents, or scientific studies that you find—and then write a brief paragraph summarizing the documents.
I would recommend scanning the list of resources in the Assignment Three Discussion, and then pick a couple that seem the most interesting to you.
After reviewing the documents listed in the Assignment Three Discussion and the documents that you investigated on the Internet, compare the two agricultural systems—Conservation Agriculture and Low Input Agriculture—to the needs identified within your community, and to the resources they have available to contribute to the climate smart agricultural component of your project.
Then write a very brief paragraph about your interest, the community’s interest, and the viability of incorporating one of these two agricultural systems into your project.
If, there are any aspects of these two agricultural systems which would work for your project, write a second very brief paragraph about which facets of these systems are the most interesting to you and include a bulleted list of the individual specific facets that would work in your project.
The homework to turn in will be:
1. A list of three online resources (including their online links) about Conservation Agriculture or Low Input Agriculture in your project’s country.
2. A short paragraph summarizing your findings described in these documents.
3. A short paragraph about your interest, your communities interest in the viability of incorporating one of these two agricultural systems and your project—or possibly incorporating one facet of these agricultural systems into your project.
Go to Magee’s Example Project Assignment Three to see what this could look like.
See you next week.
