Burkina Faso - Promoting Growth, Competitiveness and Diversification : Country Economic Memorandum, Volume 3. Enhancing Growth Factors
World Bank [2010-09]
The main conclusion of Country Economic Memorandum is that the previous model of extensive growth has now exhausted its potential and must be renewed. Given the existing population dynamics, low environmental tolerance due to its Sahelian climate and competition forces imposed due to its open economy, Burkina Faso is heavily investing in growth based on increased productivity to overcom ...

Carranza, Eliana 
Differences in relative female employment by soil texture are used to explain the heterogeneous deficit of female children across districts within India. Soil texture varies exogenously and determines the depth of land tillage. Deep tillage, possible in loamy but not in clayey soil textures, reduces the demand for labor in agricultural tasks traditionally performed by women. Girls have ...

Carranza, Eliana [2012-02-01]
The female population deficit in India has been explained in a number of ways, but the great heterogeneity in the deficit across districts within India still remains an open question. This paper argues that across India, a largely agrarian economy, soil texture varies exogenously and determines the workability of the soil and the technology used in land preparation. Deep tillage, possib ...

Interpretability comparison between soil taxonomic and fertility capability classification units: A case of some major cassava soils in northeast, Thailand
Somchai Anusontpornperm et al. 
Comparison between two classification systems in the context of interpretability for soil management recommendation was undertaken on nine cassava growing soils across the Northeast region. Study methods included field investigation and laboratory analysis, both based on standard methods. Results showed that all soils were classified as Typic Paleustults, based on soil taxonomy system whereas ...
