This article studies the state of part-time farming in the European Union (EU) amidst recent developments in its agricultural structure. First, an in-depth descriptive analysis of the trends in farm other gainful activities (OGA) is delineated. Second, an econometric panel regression analysis employing fractional probit model is conducted to invest...
Mountain farming communities in Pakistan are exhibiting an increased rate of rural-to-urban migration and a rapid growth in the non-farm sector, which has threatened the sustenance of agricultural activity. This study examined the determinants of farm succession using a logit regression model and employed a multinomial logit regression model to stu...
Non-farm income sources are important for livelihood sustenance, especially in the mountainous regions of developing countries. To implement effective policies to improve economic development, policymakers need insights at the grassroots level. Yet, there is a lack of empirical evidence in the context of Pakistan. This study examines the current si...
I am interested in making a heat map similar to the one attached to show in my paper.
If anybody knows of any source, please let me know.
Part-time farmers defined in the EU context are the farmers with "other gainful activities". It can also be defined as:
Pluriactive farmers or the farmers with diversification activity.
For example, research studies concerning part-time farming were famous in 1980s and 90s. Then, this trend was faded and not many recent research studies are found.
Are the research studies in social science influenced by the topics of political importance?
In modern food supply chains, integrity issues are being reported, e.g., melamine scandal in China. What are the specific issues needed to be addressed? And how can we address these issues?
I'm looking for a study that explored ICT impacts on the value chain.
I'm aiming at studying the inefficiencies in the milk marketing chain caused by the lack of information. Further, to find the potential for ICT to fill the gap. Any suggestions?
How should a Ph.D. student go about acquiring the expert knowledge and transferable skills necessary for professional development, e.g. technical skills, communication skills, analytical skills?
As given in the picture, logit model is used thrice. I understand that it might be because of the correlation between some variables like farm size and the number of cows. How could we justify this scientifically?

I read the description provided on the project. It is a very interesting project and very much relevant to my research interests.
I studied peri-urban dairy farmer's risk and risk management perceptions and their relation to different farm & farmer characteristics, in Karachi. And I found a number of unique characteristics of the dairy farming, peculiar to the locality and risk conditions.
A number of similar researches done in Ireland, Netherland, Turkey, Ethiopia and USA were found to be similar in some aspects but were different in many aspects, related to culture and risk environment. A number of different farm and farmer characteristics were also found to be positively and negatively affecting the perceptions.
What do you suggest generally to add into the research to expand it more to make a global novelness of the work for a PhD level research?
