This study was conducted in the Southern Philippines Agri-Business and Marine and Aquatic School of Technology (SPAMAST), the lone state college both in Davao del Sur and Davao Occidental provinces. It is mandated to provide higher education technologies and vocational instruction and training in science, agricultural and industrial fields, as well as short term technical or vocational courses. It is also mandated to promote research, advance studies and progressive leadership in its areas of specialization. It has three campuses such as the Malita Campus and Buhangin Campus (both in Davao Occidental) and Digos Campus in Davao del Sur. One of the institutions flagship program is the Bachelor of Science in Agribusiness (BSAB) which is the focus of the study.
This study suggested that the agri-business companies should import the advanced ideas of managing the in- centive mechanism. For example, the agri-business companies can use different kinds of incentives for different employees. The top managers should consider the individual difference sufficiently. For the employees mainly engaged in manufacturing, the average education background of them is usually not very high, so the primary incentive needs of them are mainly made up of the material incentives, that is, the cash rewards. The companies can use material incentive to encourage them to improve the production efficiencies. However, the university graduates or those who have already had steady life want both great incomes and the satisfactions of the spirit, such as the working environment, cultural atmosphere. For these employees, the organizations should consider the non-material incentive as well. Therefore, the modern agri-business companies should not only use the tradi- tional incentive methods but also try to use the new incentive mechanism which can fit the present situation, so as to receive the best incentive effect.

These days, some manufacturing enterprises which are forced to diversify management enter Agri- Business and plant factory business, make an Innovation utilizing high research and development ability and enough capital. As Agri-Business Innovation in Japan, this study examinedNK Agri, a subsidiary company of Noritsu Koki, which is a motion picture producer and machinery maker, based on Industrial Cluster Theory and Diamond Model by Michael E. Porter. The important points to enter Agri-Business of manufacturing enterpriseswere summed up as below. 1) New coming manufacture enterprises can form Industrial Cluster with farmhouse and foods makers, and enhance productivity and competitiveness. 2) New coming manufacture enterprises can enhance productive efficiency by collaborating with orthodox farmhouses as important partners. 3) Re- search institutions such as universities and local government should support for forming and development of Agri Industrial Cluster by manufacture enterprises. Agri Industrial Cluster by manufacture enterprises can improve local economy, so local government should prepare for the system to expand support as a policy.
Abstract — In India, agriculture is considered as the backbone of its economy. It has been around since ancient times when other sectors were not even in existence yet. Today agriculture has achieved commercial importance and one of the powerful sectors contributing to nations’ GDP. The population of our country is increasing day by day and the size of land remains same. So, with increasing productivity, another important concept is “MANAGEMENT”. Agribusiness Management Education is a discipline that blends economic, agriculture, business (commerce) and management principles. In agriculture education, management field is gaining popularity day by day. Since the last few decades, agriculture has achieved satisfactory growth but due to some factors, the agricultural growth is relatively stagnated. So, upgradation is needed, right from pre harvesting until it reaches at the consumer level. Farmers are key performers in farming but are not able to get good returns to his produce due to many middlemen in the marketing channel. Due to a growing population, it creates a disparity between market demand and supply. So, proper management practices are required including reducing raw material wastage at farm and processing level and effective marketing strategies are also needed. Hence, an attempt is made in this paper to study the role of management education in agri-business sector and how it will help in developing managerial skills and to develop management workforce to cater for the Indian agricultural industry which serves as a good option for potential employment in corporate sector.
machinery that is less manual and more efficient in the productivity, they need to approach firm's to come out with a size that is more suitable for their production and which would also benefit them in their future plans in expanding their business. Again this strategy may be affected by the entrepreneur's reluctance to take risks. Another dimension observed through this study on the production difficulties experienced by the micro firm's may be related to the position of these micro firms in the Agri- Business sector. The owners of these firm's needs to be more flexible in their production activities and at the same time they must pay attention to their financial elements. Therefore there is a urgent need both by the owner's of these firm's and the policy makers to make necessary arrangements to conduct exclusive awareness programs in exposing these entrepreneurs about the need for automation in the production process of their units. On the basis of this study one would definitely agree with Borch and Forsman(2001) that there should be more research encouraged towards developing adequate small scale technology for the benefit of small firms.
There are a number of implications for the existing literature: First, TBSFs are usually treated as a homogenous group of small companies facing similar issues and having similar characteristics as a stylised fact. These characteristics were discussed in our literature review. This study has demonstrated that even within one sector, the agri-business sector, such a stylised view can be misleading. Our evidence suggests instead that diversity of TBSFs is the dominant theme. Second, TBSFs are viewed as resource constrained, even in resource rich environments, partly because they are seen as facing greater uncertainty. Hence, theoretically, we would expect TBSFs to be particularly resource constrained in a lean contextual environment such as New Zealand. We suggest that in practice, via entrepreneurial learning and dynamic capabilities, TBSF entrepreneurs can employ strategies that can overcome resource constraints and maintain a competitive performance. Third, literature needs to recognise that new practical solutions to resource constraints are being found that are sector specific, these include for example, private equity sector-specific investors that are keen to invest in their own sector. Such investors have emerged through the importance of local networks. Finally, this leads to the implication that local networks are as important for TBSFs as global networks and are particularly important for sharing entrepreneurial learning, knowledge and information.
Agri-business programme in the university was started during 2009-10, as agricultural graduates lack managerial skills and find it difficult to cope up with the complex situations and can not function effectively as managers in agri-business firms. The potential for development of agri-business sector is immense in the state as well as in the country. Agri-business links farm production, input supply, agro processing and distribution net work and emerges as viable option to resolve the problems of unemployment in rural sector to a great extent. The use of management concepts in agriculture and associated business has become more pronounced now. The production of goods and services is consumer oriented. Similarly the education should also be according to the needs and demand of the service provider's i.e. agri-business industrialist, MNC's, service sectors, etc. The programme aims at enabling meritorious agricultural graduates to acquire the critical competencies for functioning as effective agri-business managers.
throughout the study area. 62.79% of processing plants run under single ownership, 26.28% under 2-3 member partnership and 20.93% under more than 3 member partnership in Jalpaiguri district while the figures are 67.85%, 14.28% and 17.86% for Cooch Behar district. One of the primary impediments of establishing processing plant is an open yard required for sun drying of decorticated nuts after boiling. The asset value of such yard adjacent to market fringe is quite high. In such a position a good number of plants are arranged on temporal case. The perpetuity of such plants depends on prosperity of business, amount of lease money and participation of the land owner as working partner in
What are your capital purchase plans (land, machinery, equipment and buildings)? How long will the equipment last? Will you lease your equipment? You should specify each item required with the cost, expected useful life, and the annual depreciation. If you already have many of the capital items required, these should be listed along with the year purchased, the original cost, depreciation rate, and accumulated depreciation. Once such a list is established, it is easy to update. With this information, it is relatively easy to quickly determine the market value of all assets and the estimated Net Worth of your business.
The findings summarised in 6.1 challenge Donaldson’s (1995) and Freeman’s (1999) general view of how companies adopt a normative approach to involving stakeholders in their in-house development and in terms of determining their moral responsibilities. The evidence produced in this thesis demonstrates that best-practice companies have taken clear steps to embed sustainability-related approaches to business within their business strategies, and that long-term commitment to market transformation within areas of sustainable sourcing is evident, with pre-competitive phases of collaboration with market competitors and its associated costs rationalised by the view that in the long-term this will have a clear benefit for both its supply chain participants and profitability. The testimony of evidence supports Margolis (2003) who argues that companies establish a workable balance between instrumental and other moral criteria, particularly where company managers confront difficult dilemmas when normative and instrumental claims do not perfectly align.
Increasing the number of commodity producers, improving cooperation with processing enterprises, reducing the number of intermediary structures are the main factors of the improvement of the existing market environment for the sphere of agrarian production. Therefore, promoting the emergence of new business entities in the market and the corresponding changes in the competitive environment from the existing oligopsony to the conditions of perfect and even monopolistic competition are some of the methods of reconciling the economic interests of the main participants in agribusiness - the direct producers and consumers of the products of agro-raw materials.
Succession planning and estate planning require careful consideration of the goals and objectives of those individuals involved with the planning process. Equity owners eventually face the issue of transference of control and ownership of their business interests. Considera- tion is given to family participation, equity value, timing of transfer, method of payment and net tax consequence. For many business owners, the transfer of their equity interest is a major component of their retirement plan. Matters to consider when evaluating the personal and business objectives of a succession or estate plan include:
businesses from the survey rated the workforce availability, quality and stability as fair to good . 70% of the survey respondents indicated that workforce planning and employee training and attraction are the primary way that local business and economic development associations could assist the business sector . in terms of future employee needs, 79% of the businesses indicated that they expect an increase in employee requirements and both general labour and skilled trades were identified needs for 60% of these businesses . Durham region and the gta have growing population bases that can easily accommodate this growth . top priorities for the development of the workforce include supervisory skill training and health and safety training along with business specific skill training and oral communications . currently, the majority of the training is offered “in-house” with the cost of training and the loss of productivity during training cited as the greatest barriers to employee training . information technology and manufacturing technology advancements will continue to play a significant role in the growth of this sector . opportunities exist to utilize it to enhance employee training in the workplace, re-skilling the existing workforce and making training more accessible .
An agricultural mechanism or agri mechanism could be a mechanism deployed for agricultural functions. The most space of application of robots in agriculture is seeding robots square measure designed to exchange human labour. The agricultural business is behind alternative complementary industries in victimization robots as a result of the kind of jobs concerned in agriculture are not any and dig. This project strives to develop a mechanism capable of activity operations like automatic seeding and dig. It additionally provides manual management once needed and keeps tabs on the wetness with the assistance of wetness sensors. Then main part here is that the microcontroller that supervises the whole method.
The inspiration of this project came from the fully functional insects that needed to be eliminating in agriculture sector. Nowadays, robotics is one of the fastest growing in engineering fields. The robots are design to remove the human factor from labor intensive or dangerous work. The microcontroller is the brain of the robot that will receives data from various sources to control the movement of the robot in order to accomplish a task. This Smart-Agri robot is used in agricultural industry. Therefore, for applying this concept, I will design a prototype vehicle that can replace humans in the process of poison plants on a large scale.
