    Parasitic nematodes, especially
    Haemonchus contortus,
    are among the most common and
    economically important causes of infectious
    diseases of sheep and goats owned by
    pastoralists and small holder farm
    ers in East Africa. In Kenya, control of these infections
    mainly relies on the use of anthelmintic dr
    ugs. However, ethnoveteri
    nary medicine (EVM)
    preparations are widely used by pastoralists
    and small holder farmers (SHF) for treatment
    of their livestock agains

    All fourteen major peacebuilding missions launched between 1989 and 1999 shared a common strategy for consolidating peace after internal conflicts: immediate democratization and marketization. Transforming war-shattered states into market democracies is basically sound, but pushing this process too quickly can have damaging and destabilizing effects. The process of liberalization is inherently tumultuous, and can undermine the prospects for stable peace.

    The objective of the Voluntary Guidelines is to provide practical guidance to States in their implementation of the progressive realization of the right to adequate food in the context of national food security, in order to achieve the goals of the World Food Summit Plan of Action. They provide an additional instrument to combat hunger and poverty and to accelerate attainment of the Millennium Development Goals.

    ACIAR funded a collaborative project between research organisations in Southeast Asia for ILRI and regional partners to explore new ways to control helminth parasites in the tropics. The project aimed to increase small ruminant production in Southeast Asia by controlling internal parasites, which are one of the major constraints to sheep and goat production in the tropics. Control of internal parasites also provides an avenue for general improvement in husbandry methods.

    Sri Lanka, South-Eastern Asia

    The "Ruhuna Basins" defined for this case study encompass three of the main rivers that flow through ancient Ruhuna, including the longest and most important river in the region, Walawe. The Ruhuna basins are important in the broader Sri Lankan context, the basin being the location of a major hydropower plant, irrigation schemes that make a significant contribution to national food production, and important nature reserves.

    Study was conducted to determine turnover of water, nitrogen and energy in lactating Holstein x Boran cows. Nine cows (Bos indicus × B. taurus) between their 42nd and 420th the days of lactation were selected for this study. The crossbred cows had ad libitum access to water and a dried maize stover/lablab mixture (3:1), and received 3.2 kg of concentrate (wheat bran, molasses, bone meal) and 3 kg of fresh Napier grass per day.

    It is widely believed that tropical soils (mainly Oxisols) have excellent physical characteristics such as high infiltration rates, high permeability of water, good and stable soil structure and that consequently, they can support mechanized agriculture. However in the Eastern Plains (Llanos Orientales) of Colombia, when Oxisols are subjected to tillage using disc harrow, soil physical conditions deteriorate rapidly.
