    × Agricultural mechanization has often been associated with scale-effects and increased specialization. Such characterizations, however, fail to explain how mechanization may grow in Africa where production environments are heterogeneous even within a farm household, and crop diversification may help in mitigating risks.   Accompanying changes in household composition are profound changes in sources of household income, including a growing share of income coming from non-agricultural sources. For the region as a whole, more than half of rural household income now comes from non-agricultural sources (Grandstaff et al. ; Rigg and Salamanca ). In Nong Ben.

Pro-poor growth has been identified as one of the most promising pathways to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) or any subsequent set of goals aiming to reduce poverty worldwide.

Related research has developed a multitude of instruments to measure pro-poor growth using absolute and relative approaches and income and non-income data.

The combination of more cultivated land per capita, higher-value and more labor-absorbing farming, and additional household income from off-farm employment of one or more of the household’s members, is what has propelled the new agricultural revolution as well as enhanced rural food (and other) consumption of the type and scale outlined in Cited by: 8.

Agricultural output and productivity growth may benefit poor households via farm income, lower food prices, increased wage employment and rising farm and non-farm rural wages.

There is a lack of research on the relationships between rural areas and the urban hierarchy in Indonesia. Because of this, policies for urban and rural development are undertaken in isolation from one another, without incorporating the implications of rural-urban linkages for rural development.
