Shifting cultivation, also referred to as slash-and-burn cultivation, is a system practiced mostly in wetter miombo woodlands, the most extensive ecoregion in the Southern African Development Community (SADC).It is unique in that crops are grown in a field covered by ashes made from burning piles of branches obtained by lopping and chopping trees from an area (outfield) 10 times larger than.

This paper studies decision Shifting cultivation expansion and intensity of production book in shifting cultivation, in particular labour inputs, length of rotation or fallow period (intensity of production), and the agricultural frontier (expansion).

Analytical models are developed, combining forest rotation and spatial approaches in resource by: Shifting cultivation is an agricultural system in which plots of land are cultivated temporarily, then abandoned and allowed to revert to their natural vegetation while the cultivator moves on to another plot.

The period of cultivation is usually terminated when the soil shows signs of exhaustion or, more commonly, when the field is overrun by weeds. Secondary forest age and land-use intensity of the shifting cultivation landscape in (a) Cumulative area with secondary-forest fallows with different ages in Shifting Cultivation.

Shifting cultivation is the most ancient system of agriculture in which soil fertility is restored by long periods of fallowing rather than by off-farm inputs of fertilizers and amendments, nutrients are recycled between natural vegetation and crops, and ecological balance is maintained by adopting diverse and complex cropping systems rather than monoculture.

Mosaic landscapes under shifting cultivation, with their dynamic mix of managed and natural land covers, often fall through the cracks in remote sensing–based land cover and land use classifications, as these are unable to adequately capture such landscapes’ dynamic nature and complex spectral and spatial signatures.

But information about such landscapes is urgently needed to improve the. Agriculture is the science and art of cultivating plants and livestock. Agriculture was the key development in the rise of sedentary human civilization, whereby farming of domesticated species created food surpluses that enabled people to live in cities.

The history of agriculture began thousands of years ago. After gathering wild grains beginning at leastyears ago, nascent farmers. shifting cultivation, as many of these regions are well known to still have significant shifting cultivation landscapes.

Such areas are found in parts of Southeast Asia (e.g. Myanmar [ 63 –. "For methods, see slash and burn ". Shifting cultivation is an agricultural system in which plots of land are cultivated temporarily, then abandoned. This system often involves clearing of a piece of land followed by several years of wood harvesting or farming, until the soil loses the land becomes inadequate for crop production, it is left to be reclaimed by natural vegetation.

Low Intensity Agricultural System: Shifting Cultivation Shifting cultivation is one of the primitive agricultural practices found in many parts of the world including Asia Pacific and Sub Saharan countries. “Shifting cultivation” is the term applied to the system of agriculture in which a plot of land.

This book is about the prevalent characteristics and distribution of the major agricultural systems of the world - shifting cultivation, wet rice cultivation, pastoral nomadism, Mediterranean agriculture, mixed farming, dairying, plantations, ranching and large-scale grain production.

Shifting cultivation (also known as swidden) is a widely practiced form of agriculture important for livelihood, nutrition and as a safety net for millions of people in the tropics [1,2].It also arguably contributes to biodiversity conservation, soil and water conservation, and climate change mitigation [3,4,5].Simultaneously, however, shifting cultivation has been criticized by researchers.

The book describes many instances of Indigenous knowledge being used to tackle pressing climate change impacts on Native land and customs such as fishing, farming, logging and medicines.

How might these strategies be implemented on a larger scale. Swidden agriculture or shifting cultivation is viewed by governments as backward and harmful. The trend from natural forest, through shifting cultivation and upland agriculture, to increased cash crop or forest plantation, which was observed on all sites, has also implied a different spatial distribution of the forest and changes in biodiversity (Figs.

(Figs.6 6 and and7 7). Technological Imperatives for Change It is apparent from the wealth of materials surveyed that the causes of forest conversion and deforestation vary with the characteristics of the natural resource base, the level of national or local development, demographics, institutional philosophy and policy, and the resulting social and economic.Shifting cultivation is practised in the tropics by many different peoples and thus has many different names, e.g., milpa in Central America and parts of Africa, conuco in Venezuela, roca in Brazil, masole in Zaiire, ladang in Malaysia, humah in Indonesia, caingin in the Phillippines, tauhgya in Burma, tamrai in Thailand, bewar or poda in India and chena in Sri Lanka.Then, we quantified the intensity and pattern of land-use and land-cover change during the two periods.
