Companies like JAIN Irrigation Systems in India help smallholder farmers to access the relatively low-cost technology of micro-irrigation. Sold to over 200,000 smallholder farmers each year , JAIN’s main product, “more crop per drop” is an improved drip irrigation system that can easily be adapted to an individual farmer’s specific needs.

At the same time, JAIN also offers smallholders abuy-back optionand purchases their production either at a pre-agreed sales price or at the current market price – whichever is highest at the time of purchase. Through this agreement, farmers can count on having the best price available for their product and have more confidence investing in their futures. The collaboration with JAIN also offers farmers training on good agricultural practices from over one thousand agronomists and irrigation specialists in the field and increases their adaptive capacity to cope with the negative effects of climate change. In addition, JAIN also encourages farmers to get involved insocial agro forestry programsin their respective villages – another very effective way to make agriculture more climate resilient.

For JAIN, this collaboration opens up the possibility to generating increased revenues and value through the sale of micro-irrigation systems, seeds and other JAIN products to farmers that already trust the company.

Businesses increase adaptive capacity of smallholders

Enterprises likeJain Irrigation also increase the adaptive capacity of smallholders by providing them withreliable channels to sell their production at fair prices. In addition to that, companies cansupport smallholders with good agricultural practices and knowledgeon the most effective ways to adapt to climate change.

project in India show, that Samruddhi farmers nearly doubled their average grain yields within three years after receiving the on-field training from BASF agronomists, from 578 kg/acre (2007) to 902 kg/acre (2010), a level close to the world average of 1,020 kg/acre.Average net incomes increased by 64% from 2006 to 2008.In the same period, BASF sales of crop protection products also grew by 60% annually.

Companies that source produce from smallholder farmers also have an interest inreducing supply chain risks by making smallholders climate proof. Coffee, tea and cocoa, but also perennial fruit crops like Litchi or Mango are sourced mainly by smallholder farmers. The Egyptian company Sekem shows that witheffective soil management, fertilization and crop rotation, agriculture can even adapt to the hostile conditions of the Egyptian desert.Sekem’s agricultural department is closely involved in the development of quality organic seeds and they provide sustainable technical assistance to agricultural professionals and farmers.

Oh, I see. So, this is all a ginned up political play by Obama, Sharpton, and Holder. That’s what I suspected. It’s nice to see real world data confirm my suspicions.

Nice article. I often wonder what’ s going on. For example what portion of these violent crimes are gang related and whether those are analyzed differently.

“black people tend to offend more because they tend to be more disadvantaged”; that’s exactly backwards. Black people tend to be more disadvantaged because they offend more. They don’t commit crime because they’re poor, they’re poor because they commit crimes. Stop making excuses for freely chosen criminality.

Using Eric Holder’s statistics on this issue is the same as asking John Gruber about Obamacare – No federal government stats can be trusted past 2008 and we all know it!

Keep in mind that those statistics are reported crimes.If you take into account that there are a lot of crimes that happen in the streets that people don’t even report to police because of the fear of being labeled a snitch, the numbers have to be at least a few percentage points higher, if not more. I live in Baltimore and I see crimes happen all the time that go unreported.

Ed if you see crimes happen everyday that go unreported, then you are as guilty as the person who is committing them. You should be reporting them if YOU see them and YOU know they are going to go unreported. Your argument proves nothing.

Patrick – Verifiable statistical data supporting the information you presented was omitted. When you make claims that there is “official police-recorded data” provide a reference. Statistics requires analysis of data and a understanding of the results for accurate communication of the findings. Your article lacks supporting evidence for a subjective premise.

Evidence that “the police are racist…” That’s just such a generalization that you could never prove. That’s like saying evidence that “blacks are criminals.” The job of police is not to arrest people as proportionately to our population as possible: “No Jim, let that murderer go, arrest this white guy instead, we’ve already met our Latino quota…” The job of police is to arrest people who commit crimes and in doing so to keep us safe. We need to stop shaming them for putting their lives on the line for us. The reality is, when you’re in trouble, who are you gonna call?

Plus, most of the black crime is concentrated in the poorest black communities. There are plenty of blacks living in non-violent neighborhoods, communities, and rural areas. In fact, earlier last century, ethnic whites in many cities were committing more violent crime than blacks. And before that in one study done on rural Louisiana, black violent crime was almost non-existent, despite the rural whites in the area being extremely violent.

Conditions are always changing. And populations do indeed move over time. The reason many blacks are in poor urban areas now is because they were escaping the violence of whites elsewhere, either in terms of Southern Jim Crow or Northern sundown towns and Second Klan, and in both cases white mob violence and lynchings all around.

The history and ongoing reality of racist prejudice, violence, and oppression isn’t to say all whites are bad anymore than a small fraction of poor blacks in the poorest communities means all blacks are bad.

Why wasn’t my other comment approved? I realize that I was mocking the racist. But my point was that the racist I was mocking was mocking blacks. Why is mocking blacks acceptable in the comments section but not mocking the racists mocking blacks? That sounds like a double standard, based on the perceived race of the target of mockery.

6th October 2015 at 2:44 pm

Because we are all racists seeking to keep the black man down. Honestly I do not run this site. If I did, I would approve every comment because everyone should have the grounds to voice their opinions regardless of whether I agree with them.

Let me make my point without mockery, no matter how well deserved.

It is true many poor blacks haven’t left poor neighborhoods. It is also true that many have left poor neighborhoods and still experience the combined problems of racism and economic disadvantage.

As far as that goes, there are many poor whites who remain not just in poor white neighborhoods, but entire poor white communities and areas. There are large parts of the country filled with poor people of every race and ethnicity. They choose to stay for various reasons, even as others leave.

That happened with my family and it worked for them. They were able to escape poverty. But it doesn’t always work out. Is it better to move away from poverty only to find yourself then still poor but also isolated?

Here is another thing to be asked: Which is worse—poor minorities who choose to remain close to their homes, their families, their communities, and their churches because that is what they know or the racist who chooses to be racist because it is all he has known from his own upbringing or from the society around him? Why should poor people give up the only security they have in the world, their social ties and their roots in a sense of place, or else be judged by racists?

Tatyana Felgenhauer survived the stabbing and is currently recovering in hospital.

Some independent reporters have speculated that pro-regime agents might have used the man's delusions to manipulate him into attacking the presenter.

Everyone 'can become a target' of a madman

Commenting on the attack, the official Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the authorities had no plans to boost security for journalists.

"Unfortunately, everyone of us can become a target of a madman," Peskov told reporters. He also reacted to Muratov's plan to "arm the newsroom," saying that reporters were free to take any steps to protect themselves as long as they are not breaking the law.
