      The global agricultural machinery market is estimated to register a CAGR of % over the forecast period. The global aGricultural machinery market is driven by THE rising demand for agricultural products, farm mechanization, and increasing farm labor costs. The report offers an in-depth analysis of the market growth, trends, and forecast till With increasing the population and the fixed of the water available for agricultural production, the food security for the future generation is at stake. The agricultural sector faces the challenge to produce more food with less water by increasing crop water productivity. Arab .

        Because agricultural practices are a matter of life and death in Africa, they must be sustained and improved to feed the poor continent. The developed countries like the USA, the EU and others should work in common interest of delivering GM technology that has potentials to improve agricultural productivity, health and food security in Africa. increasing productivity i.e. output per labor input and output per cultivated area of land. Land productivity is used by national policy makers to evaluate agricultural production intended to meet national food security needs. But, output per agricultural worker, on the other hand, may be a more important indicator of.

      This study investigates the factors affecting agricultural production of farm households in the National Regional State of Tigray, Ethiopia. The major primary sources of data for the study were farm household surveys, focus group discussions and key informant interviews.   Various environmental stresses viz. high winds, extreme temperatures, soil salinity, drought and flood have affected the production and cultivation of agricultural crops, among these soil salinity is one of the most devastating environmental stresses, which causes major reductions in cultivated land area, crop productivity and quality.

Research projects are not need, demand and economic benefit based. In order to raise agricultural productivity, agricultural research needs to be improved continuously (Khan, ). Lack of coordination between research and extension organizations is also a major constraint to increasing agricultural productivity.

However, agriculture is practiced on an area of about million feddans1 (about million ha), including recently reclaimed lands (Abdelhakam, ). As a heavily populated country with the population of 83 million, Egypt is an agricultural based country.

Agriculture remains a major. This chapter summarises recent empirical evidence from the country reviews and related work on drivers of farm performance and policy impacts on agriculture, which support the role of innovation, structural change and natural resource use and climate change in driving farm productivity and sustainability improvements.

This review of available evidence also sheds light on a number of important. Nassar also confirmed the need to foster agro-processing and agro-industry, adding that a major hindrance to the potential increase in agricultural productivity is the high land fragmentation, which the government is aiming to avoid through new agricultural projects focused on helping farmers consolidate land and linking them to markets.

as food security and agricultural productivity continue to be measured by money and markets, it will continue to pull young people away from agricultural life. A Way of Life or a Pathway to Poverty Agricultural development has come to mean increasing productivity alone.

To speak of agriculture however, is to speak of farmers.

Public spending on research and development in Egypt may be a constraint to productivity since the country spent an average of % of its total GDP per year from to compared to % in.
