Human Resources In The South: Rural Sociology In The 1990s, Peggy J. Ross Dec 1990

Human Resources In The South: Rural Sociology In The 1990s, Peggy J. Ross

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

This article focuses on the problem of human resources in the South during the 1980s. The author contends that the problem is especially critical in the rural South, where the impacts of widespread rural economic stress in the eighties contributed to further underdevelopment of already limited human resources. Educationally, the South not only lags other regions, but the rural South lags the urban South. Furthermore, a wide gap exists in the educational attainment of southern rural blacks and whites. It is argued that the development of an adequate human resources base in the rural South begins with building initiative and ...

Institutions Under Influence: The Case Of Knowledge Stratification Within The U.S. Land Grant System, Rosalind P. Harris Dec 1990

Institutions Under Influence: The Case Of Knowledge Stratification Within The U.S. Land Grant System, Rosalind P. Harris

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

The U.S. land grant system is notably stratified in its distribution of knowledge and power. In the upper strata are historically white land grant (HWLG) institutions often referred to as "1862 Institutions," which command power and resources from their historic ability to produce the agricultural and scientific knowledge supportive of state and national economic development goals. In the lower strata are historically black land grant (HBLG) institutions often called "1890 institutions." They struggle against the historical conditioning that has, until recently, restricted their efforts in producing knowledge to the manual applications and teaching of farming. This article examines how ...


Farm Structure And Use Of The Conservation Reserve Program Of The 1985 Farm Bill, Joseph N. Kairumba, Gerald C. Wheelock Dec 1990

Farm Structure And Use Of The Conservation Reserve Program Of The 1985 Farm Bill, Joseph N. Kairumba, Gerald C. Wheelock

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

Within the conservation and production objectives that form the current Farm Bill, there are a range of options that encourage uniquely tailored farm plans for each farm and landowner (LO) situation. In this attempt to predict use of one option, the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP), three broad sets of farm structure variables were employed. These were farming scale, planning horizon, and farm specialization. A two-stage systematic sample of 437 farm parcels from county ASCS lists resulted in 187 land owner interviews for discriminant analysis. Participation in CRP was most discriminated by two farm size variables--crop acres and gross farm income ...

The Adaptations Of Farmers In An Era Of Declining Groundwater Supplies, Don E. Albrecht Dec 1990

The Adaptations Of Farmers In An Era Of Declining Groundwater Supplies, Don E. Albrecht

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

In recent years it has become increasingly apparent that modem agricultural practices are resulting in a wide array of environmental problems, and in particular resource depletion problems. As of yet, however, there has been a relative lack of research on the adaptations made by farmers when faced with the depletion of an important resource. This paper helps address this void by exploring the adaptations of farmers (N = 700) in the Texas High Plains to the depletion of their primary source of irrigation water--the Ogallala Aquifer. It was found that the proportion of farm operators who had adopted each of the ...


1890 Institutions' Extension Program And Rural Development, Adell Brown Jr. Dec 1990

1890 Institutions' Extension Program And Rural Development, Adell Brown Jr.

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

The black land-grant colleges' contributions to developing the rural South are traced back before they were added to the land-grant system by the passage of the Morrill Act of 1890. The 1890 Extension target clientele are small farmers and limited resource persons who were not being reached by the conventional delivery system. Before 1972, the 1890 institutions primarily assisted the 1862 universities to serve black farmers and provide training and housing for black specialists and agents. In 1972, the passage of USDA Appropriation Act, under 3(d) section of the Smith-Lever Act, provided funds for the 1890 institutions to fulfill ...


The Decline Of Black Farmers And Strategies For Survival, Robert Zabawa, Arthur Siaway, Ntam Baharanyi Dec 1990

The Decline Of Black Farmers And Strategies For Survival, Robert Zabawa, Arthur Siaway, Ntam Baharanyi

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

By most accounts, black farmers in the United States are categorized as either limited resource or subsistence producers given an historic lack of access to credit, mechanical, and land resources. Additionally, advanced age and limited education have placed black farmers on the "endangered" list. Given these constraints to financial and human capital, black farmers have adopted survival strategies in an attempt to maintain their farms. Results presented here from research conducted in the Black Belt region of Alabama indicate that there is a high degree of participation in the off-farm workforce and reliance on off-farm income for black farm family ...


Obstacles And Opportunities: Funding Research At The 1890 Land Grant Institutions, Alton Thompson Dec 1990

Obstacles And Opportunities: Funding Research At The 1890 Land Grant Institutions, Alton Thompson

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

Similar to other university faculties, faculty members at 1890 land grant institutions are expected to support their research programs with grants from sources outside their institutions. Although the expectation of securing grants has not received the public attention that the "publish or perish" dictum has, faculty at the 1890 institutions seeking promotion and tenure must increasingly demonstrate that they can procure grant funds. Numerous inhibitive factors, however, tend to attenuate the success of 1890 faculty in obtaining research grant funding and in implementing such research projects. In this study, three key factors are examined: political, research infrastructure, and faculty initiative ...

The Demand For Agricultural Research By State Governments, Jyoti Khanna, Wallace E. Huffman, Todd Sandler Dec 1990

The Demand For Agricultural Research By State Governments, Jyoti Khanna, Wallace E. Huffman, Todd Sandler

Economic Staff Paper Series

Public agricultural research in the United States is conducted by state agricultural experiment stations (SAES) and by the research agencies of the USDA. Both have research activities in every state. A vast amount of research and experiments has shown that the performance of plants and to a lesser extent animals, in which new technologies are frequently embodied, is altered by local geoclimatic conditions that differ within and between states. Basic research and livestock research to some extent lead to new knowledge or technologies that spill widely across state boundaries. Thus, public agricultural research produces knowledge that is both state specific ...

What's The Sleepgram Pillows Made Of ?, Jmes Modmd

jmes modmd

The spread texture of this pad is produced using 100% cotton, and Sleepgram pillow feels excessively delicate and light. A zipper traverses the side of the cushion enabling sleepers to effectively evacuate the spread when it's a great opportunity to be washed. Inside the spread are two separate pads shrouded in 100% polyester and loaded up with a cushy down-elective called poly microfiber. These internal pads are named with a blue marker, and a red marker, signifying delicate and medium firmnesses individcually. This enables the sleeper to blend and match cushion arrangements so as to alter firmness.Leave just ...
