Subjects/Keywords: The main objective of this study is to assess the impact of small scale irrigation on socioeconomic development of the society in Kemisse Zone, Dewa Cheffa Woreda. The study employed survey method and personal observation to collect socio-economic data. Farming household and key informant were interviewed to collect primary data. In addition, relevant literature and essential documents that was useful for the study were reviewed. The analysis which was conducted amongst the same respondents before introduction of irrigation, allowed for the comparison in order to identify the impact after introduction of irrigation project. Also, the social and economic impact was assessed that used to assess the impact of small scale irrigation in the study area. The result reveals that small scale irrigation have an impact on social and economic well being of households. The skill of farmers after introduction of irrigation was better than that of before introduction of irrigation such as, plowing, threshing, harvesting, use of agronomic practice. All the farm households are worked in their farm on the daily basis, which is a big change as compared to before introduction the schemes. Land use intensity and crop diversification was improved due to irrigation. Land use intensity improved due to increases in acreage of main crop as well as cultivating at both seasons. Crop diversification was also observed as a result of irrigation development in the study area. Almost the entire farm household increased producing multi item and market oriented types of crop two cycles per a year. The study finding highlights that small-scale irrigation for food security enhancement, high yield obtained in irrigation and other benefit such as increased income, employment opportunity, crop diversification, land use intensity, and the like are indication that small-scale irrigation can bring sustainable agriculture and economic development in the study area. But issues related to small size of farm plot, input supply, market situation, reservoir capacity to enrich irrigation water for all user groups, crop water requirement, ways of water distribution for users and infrastructure can affect the sustainability; small-scale irrigation schemes.

McGill University

9. Achuo, George. Partner satisfaction and renewal likelihood in consumer supported agriculture (CSA) : a case study of The Equiterre CSA network.

Degree: MS, Department of Agricultural Economics, 2003, McGill University

Subjects/Keywords: Sustainable agriculture  – Québec (Province).; Organic farming  – Québec (Province).; Consumer satisfaction  – Québec (Province).; Consumer supported agriculture (CSA) is a mutually beneficial food system that is based on forward contracts between a farmer and consumers. CSA emphasizes organic production methods, and local production for local consumption. A review of the literature on CSA indicates that it is thriving as an alternative to the conventional food system. Yet, the sustainable growth of the CSA food system is threatened by high partner turnover. A case study of the Equiterre CSA network was done to identify causes of high partner turnover. 378 useable surveys, out of 500 sent out, were used to identify factors that influence satisfaction and the likelihood to renew the partnership. An ordered probit model was estimated for each dependent variable. Nine factors each were found to significantly influence satisfaction and the likelihood to renew partnership. Satisfaction with product quantity, quality and price, and partner perception of their ability to influence basket contents were statistically significant in the both models. Satisfaction with the location of delivery points was significant in the renewal model. In terms of socio-demographic variables, income and the number of children under 12 years in a household both had negative effects on satisfaction while age had a positive effect on renewal. A high correlation (r=0.7) between global satisfaction and renewal suggests that CSAs can reduce the turnover rate by delivering in areas that influence global satisfaction with the system. The results suggest that the single most important area in this regard is that of choice and variety of produce. A more flexible system of constituting baskets and a more diversified selection of produce may be useful areas of focus on the farmers' part.
