Special Issue Information
Improving the productivity and efficiency of agriculture is a priority concern for governments, policy makers, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), relevant stakeholders and farming communities worldwide to meet the demand for food, food products and services from a closing land frontier and degrading land base. Concern is also centered on developing high-value and/or high-quality agriculture industry and food system to ensure the commercialization, growth, revenue and sustainable development of the agricultural sector. These concerns are particularly high for countries grappling with a lack of innovation, low levels of technical progress, subsistence farming, adverse production environments and a changing climate. High-quality agriculture here refers to the growth mode of innovation-driven agriculture, which is efficient, energy-saving and contributes towards environmental protection and is characterized by high added value. It is an agricultural system dominated by smart technologies with high added value as the core emphasizing quality in addition to the quantity of production and services from the sector.
This Special Issue aims to solicit original contributions from academics, researchers, practitioners, NGOs and other stakeholders providing theoretical insights and/or empirical analysis focusing on examining productivity, efficiency and the multiple challenges encountered in pursuing a path of high-value and/or high-quality agriculture development in developing economies. The editors encourage submissions with applications of innovative and/or novel methodologies ranging from parametric, semi-parametric and non-parametric approaches to address any aspects of the theme of this Special Issue. The scope of submission includes original research and review articles on the theme.
