Under National Agro-Food Policy, agriculture sector has been identified as a National Key Result Area. Under this initiative, the agriculture sector is targeted to increase the Gross National Income by RM28.9 Billion (USD9.1 billion) to reach RM49.1 billion (USD15.4 billion) by 2020. The agricultural sector is also targeted to create more than 109,000 job opportunities by 2020, primarily in the rural areas.
Coffee, sugarcane, sisal, and fruit are the dominant commercial crops, while beans, rice, corn, and sorghum are the main food crops. Coffee is the dominant export. Sugarcane, cotton, sisal, coconuts, and vetiver are raised on plantations
Wheat and sugarcane are the leading crops, followed by barley, oats, rice, potatoes, cotton, sunflower seeds, and tomatoes. Fruits include grapes, primarily for wine, and oranges, apples, pineapples, and bananas.
It implies that it is possible to make coal a fuel source that is free of (or very low in) carbon dioxide emissions and other pollutant emissions. Some of the techniques that would be used to accomplish this include chemically washing minerals and impurities from the coal, gasification (see also IGCC), treating the flue gases with steam to remove sulfur dioxide, carbon capture and storage technologies to capture the carbon dioxide from the flue gas and dewatering lower rank coals (brown coals) to improve the calorific value, and thus the efficiency of the conversion into electricity.
farm commodity after cereal grains and beef cattle. In 1979, it constituted 1/5 of total farm
South Asia is one of the most densely populated regions of the world, where despite a slow growth, agriculture remains the backbone of rural economy as it employs one half to over 90 percent of the labor force. Both extensive and intensive policy measures for agriculture
Coal happens to be a very important tool in the factory business. Many different places in the world use coal as an energy source, not only the U.S. These are just some of the reason why we still use coal. Coal is extremely cheap and very abundant. But some disadvantages of using coal is the mass amounts of co2 pollution it causes.
So big crops in America at least is wheat, soybeans, and corn. They play big parts in farming but there is more types of crops that people grow for different things. People can grow oats for there horses or livestock around the farm. But that crop is not grown near as much as the three main ones. The biggest one in the United States is wheat. People grow
As of 2004, twelve percent of the country is cultivated, with an additional ten percent used as pastureland for grazing and another five percent has the potential for agricultural activities (“Afghanistan Profile” 5). The main crops are opium, wheat and other grains, fruits and nuts, sugar beets and oil seeds. Opium is the most profitable crop, and although officially outlawed, Afghanistan remains the world’s leading producer. The main livestock grown are sheep, goats, camels, poultry, cattle and buffalo. The type of livestock grown is dependent upon the terrain and water available. All products from the animals are used and sheep are especially useful as they provide both animal protein and fat, but also serve as a source of wool. Approximately 80 percent of the population works in some form of agriculture, yet frequently the gross output is not enough to feed the population (“Afghanistan Profile” 5 and cia.gov).
However, they still have a decent import/export system. Currently, they import machinery, capital goods, food, textiles and petroleum products. They also export fruits, nuts, opium, handwoven carpets, wool, cotton, hides, pelts and precious gems. As mentioned above, their main natural resources are copper, coal, natural gas, petroleum, chromite, talc, burites, sulfur, lead, zinc, iron ore, salt, precious gems and semi-precious gems. In 2012, they spent an estimated $6.39 billion on imports. At the same time, they only made an estimated $376 million on exports. Also, in 2013 they had a GPA (PPA) of
In view of the high cost of establishing a cement factory, Dangote Cement will continue to dominate the market space even though the company is conscious of the impact of government policies may have on its business. With its expansion in Africa and based on the fact that most neighboring nations to Nigeria do not have enough limestone deposits, Dangote will keep sustaining the market with its cement production.
Growth in the agricultural sector has been driven by increased production of major food crops such as maize, sorghum and cassava, but the sector’s performance remains below potential. In turn, the services and industrial sectors have shown strong growth. The nascent banking sector and expanding telecommunications sector are key drivers behind services growth, while construction, electricity generation, manufacturing and mining are salient sub-sectors in industrial activity. Looking ahead, the banking and telecommunication sectors will continue to support services growth, while increased electricity generation capacity will benefit the expansion of the manufacturing
Pakistan matters because this country is the corridor between the Eastern Asia and the Middle East. It is one of the six declared nuclear weapon states with one of the largest armies in the world. Pakistan is important because it has been part of five declared wars in the past sixty years with its neighboring country, India. The country is also at war with few of the most dangerous terrorist groups in the world like Al-Qaeda, Taliban, etc. It is one of the main allies of the United States and United Kingdom of Asia. Pakistan is one of the most complex democracies of the world. It’s different ethnicities, languages and regions make it one of the most diverse nations in the world. The country was founded on the Westminster model, but the government has been overthrown by military leaders three times since Pakistan’s creation. That makes it function differently from Britain. Many dismissed the Pakistani economy for years because of its poor frugality and government functionality. It has constantly faced a rapid economic fall in the past few years, forcing the world to pay attention.
