THE EFFECTS OF EXTENSIFICATION ON THE ECOLOGY, ANIMAL WELFARE AND SOCIO-ECONOMICS OF AGRICULTURAL SYSTEMS IN HILL AND MOUNTAIN REGIONS

Objective



The project deals with the effects of extensification on the ecology, animal welfare and socio-economic aspects of agricultural systems in hill and mountain regions. It is proposed that the effects of extensification in less favoured areas of hill and mountain regions on the flora, welfare and production of livestock and economic viability of agricultural systems will be assessed. It is proposed for research workers in economic, animal husbandry and agronomic disciplines to pool existing information and conduct collaborative research in this area.
