Agricultural Technology adoption and poverty reduction: A propensity-score matching analysis for rural BangladeshFood Policy, 2007Co-Authors: Mariapia MendolaAbstract:
This study aims at shedding some light on the potential impact of Agricultural Technology adoption on poverty alleviation strategies. It does so through an empirical investigation of the relationship between technological change, of the Green Revolution type, and wellbeing of smallholder farm households in two rural Bangladeshi regions. As Technology adoption is not randomly assigned but there is ‘self-selection into treatment’, the paper tackles a methodological issue in assessing the ‘causal’ effect of Technology on farm-household wellbeing through the non-parametric ‘p-score matching analysis’. It pursues a targeted evaluation of whether adopting a modern seed Technology causes resource-poor farmers to improve their income and decrease the propensity to fall below the poverty line. It finds a robust and positive effect of Agricultural Technology adoption on farm household wellbeing suggesting that there is a large scope for enhancing the role of Agricultural Technology in ‘directly’ contributing to poverty alleviation. © 2006 Elsevier Ltd.

environmental impacts of modern Agricultural Technology diffusion in bangladesh an analysis of farmers perceptions and their determinantsJournal of Environmental Management, 2003Co-Authors: Sanzidur RahmanAbstract:
Farmers’ perception of the environmental impacts of modern Agricultural Technology diffusion and factors determining such awareness were examined using survey data from 21 villages in three agro-ecological regions of Bangladesh. Results reveal that farmers are well aware of the adverse environmental impacts of modern Agricultural Technology, although their awareness remains confined within visible impacts such as soil fertility, fish catches, and health effects. Their perception of intangible impacts such as, toxicity in water and soils is weak. Level and duration of modern Agricultural Technology adoption directly influence awareness of its adverse effects. Education and extension contacts also play an important role in raising awareness. Awareness is higher among farmers in developed regions, fertile locations and those with access to off-farm income sources. Promotion of education and strengthening extension services will boost farmers’ environmental awareness. Infrastructure development and measures to replenish depleting soil fertility will also play a positive role in raising awareness.

Realization of Property Rights,Compensation Mechanism and Agricultural Technology ExtensionIssues in Agricultural Economy, 2010Co-Authors: Gao QiangAbstract:
Now there are many problems exist in china’s current Agricultural Technology extension,which affecting the role of Agricultural Technology to play.The trading of Agricultural Technology including substantive element and non-substantive element,incomplete trading of non-substantive element resulted in the incomplete property rights.The mathematical modemodel analysis showed that incomplete property rights reduce rural households’ Agricultural income,put negative impact on the Agricultural Technology extension.The construction of a reasonable compensation mechanism is helpful to reduce the negative impact of incomplete property rights trading.Through the micro-level oversight to promote Technology suppliers to fulfill contract,the construction of Agricultural cooperation organization in Meso-level and government support for Agricultural Technology promotion in Macro-level,we can effectively promote the implementation of property rights transactions of Agricultural Technology and enhance the effect of Agricultural Technology.
Agricultural Technology Popularization System Innovation with Cooperative as CarrierJournal of Qingdao Agricultural University, 2009Co-Authors: Gao QiangAbstract:
With the rapid development of farmers professional cooperatives,its advantages have increasingly arisen in organizing farmers’ production,increasing farmers’ income,promoting Agricultural Technology popularization,improving rural social service.However,as the market economy gets increasingly perfect and farmers professional cooperative has increased its demand for new Technology and new information,China’s government-orientated Agricultural Technology popularization service organization has faced up to fierce challenge.Due to the special advantage of cooperative,it can help to build non-governmental Agricultural Technology popularization system.To do this,government should spend more efforts supporting and guiding cooperative,establish social joint popularization mechanism linked by cooperative,give a full play of leverage to collaboration of school and cooperative,build up the popularization concept of cooperative participation and develop all-dimensional Agricultural Technology popularization service with cooperative as its carrier.
