  • Negative Impacts Of Climate Change On The Rice Supply Chain

    study is to gain in-depth understanding of the real world behavior through documentations such as historical data, observations and artifacts (Merriam, 1998). Again, according to Sterman (2001) and Saeed (1992), empirical evidence such as historical data and observations can provide guidelines to reproduce the feedback structure as a reliable representation of the real world. 3.2 Data gathering Table 3.1 shows climatic and non-climatic data collected from relevant institutions.

    needs to have more focus put on it because soil health and fertility is arguably the basis for all of our foods and without having healthy and fertile soil, there will be a decrease in the amount of crops produced. But not only is the amount of crops produced affected, the overall nutrient level in the food that farmers are growing is lower than ever experienced. This can all be traced back to the loss in the nutrients in the soil due to various farming techniques that have been being practiced…

  • The Benefits Of Coping With Drought And Climate Change In Mozambique

    As stated previously drought is by the far the most prevalent and dangerous climatic issue in the country, and the United Nations Development Programme has targeted the problem by working to introduce varieties of drought resistant crops to farming communities. Some of the main crops to be introduced are drought resistant strains of cavassa, sorghum, and sweet potato (“Coping with Drought and Climate Change (CwDCC) in Mozambique”). Improving plant science in Mozambique could significantly…

  • The Influence Of Conservation Agriculture In The US Corn Belt

    One of the major hurdles for adaptation of these CA practices is that the costs, both financially as well as time commitments, are placed upon the individual farmer whereas the short-term and long-term benefits go to society (i.e. down stream water quality and climate change).

  • Zinc Iodine Experiment

    Result 1 1. In trial 1, the mass of zinc iodide was 2.51 grams. 2. Although, the consumed moles and mass of zinc consumed could not be calculated due to an accident during lab, the mass of iodine consumed was 2.0 grams and moles consumed was 0.0079 moles. The theoretical yield for the zinc iodide was 2.51 grams and 2.51 grams was produced which makes the actual or experimental yield 100%. 3. The possible errors could have occurred due to human error in calculations or mis-calculations in the…

  • Gravimetric Analysis Colourimetry

    method to practice when calculating the percentage yield of a reaction. When examining the data obtained from the investigation, there was evident that there were some trends in the results. For the three graphs showcasing the results for gravimetric analysis in task one and task two, there was no general pattern. This was due to the fact that in Graph 1, the actual yield was a portion larger than the theoretical yield, while in Graph 3, the opposite results were obtained and in Graph 4, the…
