PLANT PRODUCTION AND PROTECTION
Section 1

Fodder oats: a world overview

By: J.M. Suttie and S.G. Reynolds
Plant Production and Protection Series No. 33
Rome, 2004, 266 pp.
ISBN 92-5-105243-3
ISSN 0259-2525
TC/P/Y5765/E
$42.00


This book, well illustrated, brings together information on the state of fodder oats worldwide, and is aimed mainly at agronomists and extension workers. It contains a series of regional studies focusing on oats used as fodder rather than grain. Oats are well adapted to areas of mild winters or cold climates with short growing seasons; their use is also expanding rapidly as a winter soil cover in subtropical South America. Oats have become very popular among small-scale farmers in Pakistan and surrounding areas, for dairy production and as a cash-crop to supply town dairies, and studies by national specialists in the Himalaya-Hindu Kush zone describe their development and use. Oats are easy to grow with equipment and techniques used for wheat. Introduction of multicut varieties has reinforced the popularity of oats as fodder, but continuous breeding efforts are necessary to maintain disease resistance. There are few breeders working on fodder oats, and new, young breeders and funding are needed to maintain the work.

FISHERIES
Section 4

Fish marketing and credit in Viet Nam

By: Audin Lem, Uwe Tietze, Erhard Ruckes, Raymon van Anrooy
FAO Fisheries Technical Paper No. 468
Rome, 2004, 184 pp.
ISBN 92-5-105218-2
ISSN 0429-9345
TC/M/Y5707/E
$26.00


Since the early 1980s, exports of fish in Viet Nam have increased significantly while the improvement of domestic marketing and utilization of fish have not received sufficient attention. Improving supplies of fish for urban and rural populations, better quality and safety of products and ensuring food security, particularly for disadvantaged and vulnerable parts of the population, are important concerns which were addressed by studies, the findings of which are presented in this report. These findings suggest that the domestic consumption of fish in Viet Nam is probably higher than previously assumed. Given the projected strong economic growth over the coming years, it must be expected that local consumer demand will continue to expand. At the same time, the exportoriented fish processing industry will result in an increased demand for raw materials. This substantial future demand for safe and high quality fish products can only be met if efficient marketing arrangements are in place.

This manual provides guidance on landing site development planning. It will help those working at artisanal fisheries landing sites to identify, collect and analyse information in a participatory way, and consequently to create and seek support for a development plan. It goes beyond simple data collection to explain how to write a project proposal and gives pointers on how to find funding, as well as technical and other support. In addition to well-known participatory methods of data collection and analysis, the manual includes transects in the fisheries production chain. This unique tool was adapted from the agricultural transect walk. The material is based on a number of cases in West Africa but the principles are applicable worldwide.

Agriculture is coming under more and more pressure to justify its use of the world's freshwater resources and to improve its productive and environmental performance. The allocations of raw water to agriculture (and the allocations within the agriculture sector) all need to be negotiated in a transparent way. This report reviews the large set of literature on the subject and makes the case for the adoption of a functional approach to water valuation as a basis for such negotiation

Market for non-traditional agricultural exports, (The)

FAO Commodities and Trade Technical Paper No. 3

The last decade has witnessed a steady decline in the dollar values of many of the traditional agricultural export crops from developing countries and has highlighted the risks of depending upon a very narrow export base for foreign exchange earning. Breaking the dependence upon the traditional primary commodities and diversifying into higher value or added value exports is not easy. This report provides an overview of the market for non-traditional agricultural exports or NTAEs. In particular, the report focuses upon the trends in international trade in these products, the trade and import policies of the major destination buyers, the extent of the adding-up problem for selected NTAEs, the lessons learned, and the prospects for developing niche markets for organic and fair trade NTAEs.

Small island developing states. Agricultural production and trade, preferences and policy

FAO Commodities and Trade Technical Paper No. 7
Rome, 2004, 112 pp.
ISBN 92-5-105253-0
ISSN 1729-9829
TC/M/Y5795/E
$26.00


This report is intended to contribute to the continuing debate related to small states and their agriculture sectors in the multilateral trade framework. It looks at the specific challenges faced by small states and the importance of non-reciprocal preferences. It is felt that a clearer understanding of Small Island Developing States' (SIDS') agricultural economies and trade and the often obscure effects of trade preferences on SIDS' economic development is vital to identifying policies that will promote their sustainable development. This report seeks to contribute to this understanding by analyzing the agricultural export performance of SIDS and evaluating the importance of their existing agricultural preferences.

Human energy requirements. Report of a Joint FAO/WHO/UNU Expert Consultation. Rome, 17-24 October 2001

FAO Food and Nutrition Technical Report Series No. 1

ISBN 92-5-105212-3
ISSN 1813-3932
TC/M/Y5686/E
$26.00


Since 1949, FAO has convened groups of experts to evaluate current scientific knowledge in order to define human energy requirements and propose dietary energy recommendations for populations. The World Health Organization joined this initiative in the early 1960s, followed by the United Nations University in 1981. New scientific knowledge generated during the 20 years since the last consultation prompted the convening of a meeting from 17 to 24 October 2001 at FAO headquarters, Rome to make recommendations for energy requirements of populations throughout the life cycle. This publication is the report of that consultation. The report is not meant merely to describe the energy expenditure and requirements of population groups but is also intended to be prescriptive in supporting and maintaining health and good nutrition, defining human energy requirements and proposing dietary energy recommendations for populations. The publication is accompanied by a CD-ROM containing a software program and an instruction manual on calculating population energy requirements and food needs.

For rural livelihoods and for the pursuit of a wide range of development objectives, water and land are obviously closely related resources. Yet, despite the existence of huge literatures on both land tenure and water rights, a comparative analysis of these two subjects is underdeveloped, and the linkages are poorly understood. This publication explores various aspects of the interface between water rights and land tenure. It is intended to synthesize and assess current learning on this topic, to define salient issues and to propose fruitful approaches for further investigation.

Legislating for property rights in fisheries

By: Christine Stewart
FAO Legislative Study No. 83

ISBN 92-5-105206-9
ISSN 1014-6679
TC/M/Y5672/E
$26.00


In recent decades, the traditional public right to fish in tidal waters has been supplanted by limitations on access to the stocks, particularly for commercial fishers. This is achieved by statutory schemes establishing rights of varying natures. Where these rights are fully established, they highlight the legal characteristics of property. This study is a contribution by the FAO Development Law Service to the discussion on rights-based systems in fisheries management from a legal perspective. It outlines the development history of rights-based fisheries management, analyses the underlying concepts of property rights in fisheries and the terms used in property rights regimes, the governing legislation in jurisdictions that have introduced property rights in fisheries and the interpretation placed by the courts of the jurisdiction on that legislation. It also presents possible options for implementing property-based fisheries rights systems in national legislation.

Desde el descubrimiento de las aflatoxinas en los años 1960, muchos países han establecido reglamentos para proteger a los consumidores de los efectos perjudiciales de las micotoxinas que contaminan los alimentos y para asegurar prácticas leales en el comercio internacional de alimentos. Este estudio describe la situación, al mes de diciembre de 2003, de los reglamentos relativos a las micotoxinas a nivel mundial. El estudio se basa en una encuesta internacional realizada en 2002 y 2003, y actualiza la información presentada en la recopilación mundial de reglamentos relativos a las micotoxinas, publicada en 1997 en el Estudio FAO: Alimentación y nutrición No 64.

This guide has been prepared to assist land administrators who are involved with the design and implementation of rural property tax systems. It shows why local governments should have a reasonable degree of fiscal autonomy if they are to make the delivery of rural services more efficient and effective, and describes how rural property taxes can be a vital source of revenues for rural communities. The guide identifies policy, administrative and technical issues that should be considered in the design of rural property taxes.

 

Leasing Agricultural Land

FAO Land Tenure Note No. 1
Rome, 2004, 24 pp.
ISBN 92-5-605197-2
TC/M/Y5513/Ar
$12.00


FAO's Land Tenure Notes provide information on land tenure in a format that can be used by grassroots organizations that work with small farmers and others in rural communities. Fair and secure leasing arrangements that balance the interests of the tenant and the land owner can lead to improvements in access to land for farming, better agricultural production and improved access to food. This guide is intended primarily to support those who work with small farmers by providing information on "good practices" for leasing land, and advice on how this information could be adapted to fit local conditions.
