The Cortez Growers Association (CGA) provided some community structure and cohesion to the life of the farmers. Membership in the organization was contingent upon board approval and the payment of fifty dollars. From its origins, it evolved into a diversified structure, encompassing the marketing of produce, the shipping of goods, the purchase of farm supplies on a collective basis, even the drying of fruit. (Matsumoto, p.49; 53) However, far beyond a purely business related collective of farmers, the CGA created an important cultural institution. It staged traditional Noh plays for the community and provided English language and Sunday school instruction, although some members of the community retained their devout Buddhism, despite the efforts of Christian missionaries. The CGA showed how these farmers could retain their Japanese culture and still function as loyal Americans
Ironically, the passage of the 1924 Immigration Act that limited the number of Japanese immigrants reduced some….

Farming:
Springdale Farms is a local grower of farm products in Cherry Hill, New Jersey that has been operating for more than six decades.

Since its inception, the grower has achieved tremendous success in its locality because of its increased commitment to sustainable farming, which has made it strong and productive through the years. The company considers its farming and land as increasingly important part of its great family and community at Cherry Hill.

The current landscape has changed significantly because of the increased construction of modern highways, which has reduced farm fields and forced vegetable and small fruit stands to be located by….

New Jersey Farming
The state of New Jersey has been a part of the United States since before it was a country. hen the land was occupied by Native Americans, the ground was cultivated and the fertile soil used to plant and fish in the Atlantic Ocean and the many rivers. It is believed that because of the high fertility of the ground, the populations who lived there were less adept at hunting and defense, thus making them easy targets for the European settlers, first from the Netherlands and then the Swedes before falling under the control of the British. Even as a colony of Great Britain, New Jersey was integral because of its agriculture and fertile soil which grew foods not just for people within the colonies but that could also be exported back to England. It was believed that the vast majorities of people living in New Jersey at….

Butterfly Farming
PAGES 5 WORDS 1530

butterfly farming among Tanzanian villagers in the vicinity of Amani town. Butterfly farming has been examined by many researchers as a means of sustainable income in many regions of Africa. Butterfly farming consists of breeding butterflies as a means of sustainable income and as a tool for forestry conservation.

Organic Produce & Farming
For most of history, farming was organic simply because of the available materials used in agriculture. Only during the middle to late 20th and early 21st centuries, with the advent of synthetic chemicals, was a new process for fertilizing and preserving foods available. This more recent style of production is referred to as "conventional," though organic production has been the convention for a much greater period of time. With organic methods, the use of chemical pesticides, herbicides and other chemicals is not only restricted, but regulated. There may be times, however, when certain non-organic products are still used when necessary. If livestock are involved, they must be reared without the routine use of antibiotics and without the use of growth hormones, and generally fed a healthy diet (Stokstad, 2002). While controversial, in most countries around the world, produce labeled as "organic" may not be genetically modified in….

Matsumoto
In Farming the Home Place, Valerie J. Matsumoto traces three generations of Japanese-Americans living in the San Joachin Valley of California during the 20th century. Agriculture becomes an overarching, extended metaphor in Farming the Home Place. Imagery of planting roots evokes the universal immigrant experience in attempting to forge new identities for future generations. The literal experience of farming for a living has a direct parallel in the figurative forms of farming cultural identities in foreign places. Just as plant samples can be grafted and planted elsewhere, people also uproot themselves and set down new lives in a new terroir. By doing so, they create synthesized identities that combine their roots with the air, sun, soil, and water of the new land. In the process of telling the stories of Japanese families in America, Matsumoto reveals little-known aspects of American cultural history and Asian-American history in particular. Although the focus….

It will be crucial to educate the local communities on how to use the system to their advantage for providing healthy water for farming and daily living purposes. To preserve the autonomous identity of these villages by empowering them with the tools they need to successfully provide the water each community will need. The research will need to focus on empowering local communities with the capabilities of providing for themselves. Currently, Sub-Saharan Africa receives millions of dollars annually in foreign aid (Haile, 2005). It is a primary goal of this research to find ways to reduce that dependence on foreign aid. The research will promote an increase overall agricultural productivity because of access to clean water. In addition, it will help improve farming methods and health of livestock so that those within the communities….

Urban Farming
PAGES 5 WORDS 1661

urban agriculture is generally employed to designate "a localized food system wherein the production, processing, distribution, access/consumption and disposal/recycling of food occur in and around the city" (Erickson et al. 5). Starting from the nature of all stakeholders' interests, urban agriculture can be endorsed for three main reasons, such as growth of food crops for personal consumption, growth of food crops for donation, or growth of food crops for sales and profits.
Public Health Law & Policy issued in March 2009 a document, named Establishing Land Use Protections for Community Gardens, which challenged the broad term of urban agriculture and advocated for a clear distinction between urban farms and community gardens. According to the document, all communities may create separate definitions and regulations for the two, urban farms being viewed primarily as a commercial or entrepreneurial enterprise, and community gardens as recreation or a leisure activity for gardeners where they….

Farm Report in Kansas
Terry Carey is a very famous local farmer in Kansas City. She deals with horticultural farm produce such as apples, ornamental corn, popcorn, water melons, cucumbers, winter squash and pumpkins with pumpkins being her major crop. Pumpkins are generally warm-loving crops therefore she plants them in June and they are often ready by September or mid-October. The size of her farm is 1,025 acres where she normally tries to distribute all the crops that she grows evenly on the land. However during the period between June and September she dedicates her entire farm to pumpkins and leaves out other crops. She plants mainly two varieties on her farm which are the giant ones that are greater that 20lb in size known as prize winner. This one takes 120 days to mature and they have a good color and shape. The second variety she plants is Jack-o'Lantern which….


Substantial cuts to farm subsidies would save taxpayers money and reduce the Federal budget deficit. Ongoing deficit spending on farm subsidies and other programs is causing large amounts of debt to be foisted on the next generation (2007)."

Paul Roberts (2008) writes that it incumbent upon first world nations, like the United States and the UK to set the pace for world policy when it comes to food, and to recognize the harm that food subsidy programs causes economically, and socially. Unfortuately, Roberts also points to the government's susceptibility to special interest (296), and we should add, self-interest. So long as we find elected officials reaping profits from farm subsidies, and so long as they are influenced by corporate special interest, then we will continue to see the government interference in agricultural free trade in the form of subsidies.

Opponents argue that government has no right to impose higher taxes due to something they seriously oppose and for which they cannot find a reasonable justification. "The "burden of the tax" falls most obviously on the people who pay the taxes. Those who put the money into the public coffers might not enjoy being required to put in even more to provide for whatever group or industry the state chooses. While some people might welcome the opportunity to contribute voluntarily a portion of their well-being for that of others, for most people a government subsidy program entails compulsion rather than contribution."
Opponents have also found that farmer subsidies are no longer being given to those who need them the most. It was originally planned that farm subsidies would support small sized farms. This was done with the intention of promoting agriculture in the country as more and more people would….

Farm Financial Standards Council Model Case
Do you think that this case study with its proposed solutions will be useful to agricultural enterprises seeking to employ management accounting techniques? Why? Be specific in identifying benefits and possible drawbacks to the proposed solutions.

The case study of John and Mary Farmer and the designated proposed solution is in fact in line with management accounting techniques. The solution itself elucidates that it plans on giving the managerial accounting system a support cost center for equipment, shop and maintenance, not to mention general farm (Farm Financials Standards Council). Production cost center will exist for each land owner and for each separate level of production (Farm Financials Standards Council). The Farm Financials Standards Council further explains that "a profit center will be established for each commodity for each year. Additionally a cost center will be established for general, sales and administration as well as for financing."….
