The economic estimation of the production activity in agriculture represents an economic category, which express the capacity to produce economic effects with lowest labour costs.
The maize gene bank at the Agronomy Department of the Biotechnical Faculty in Ljubljana is one of the oldest and the most comprehensive plant gene banks, COLLECTIONS in Slovenia. The first maize populations were collected in early 1950s. Presently, in our gene bank, there are 587 maize genotypes.
Small fruit Gene Bank, as a part of Slovenian plant gene bank (SRGB) includes monitoring and evaluating of autochthonous small fruit plants in situ; collecting and evaluating of autochthonous small fruit plants in the experimental orchard of the Agricultural Institute of Slovenia at Brdo pri Lukovici; collecting of old and new varieties and researches on autochthonous plant material.
Collecting and preserving the genetic pool of the genus Vitis is an important task that we have in Slovenia systematically addressed already in 1980.
Geographical location, climate and historical affinities are the main factors that have contributed to creating a diverse assortment of grapevine varieties in the area of Slovenia. The grapevine varieties (Vitis vinifera L.) can be described at several levels, using different methods.
Among the species, that are collectively called rocket, only three species of genus Diplotaxis (D. tenuifolia, D. muralis and D. viminea), can be found growing wild in Slovenia while species from the genus Eruca are not occurring. The Gene Bank of Agricultural Plants at the Agricultural Institute of Slovenia holds 19 autochthonous accessions from different parts of Slovenia.
Cabbage production in Slovenia has a long tradition. Domestic varieties are bred from autochthonous population from different parts of Slovenia. The characteristics of domestic varieties (e.g. for sauering) are important for Slovenian consumers. On the other hand hybrid cultivars are uniform, give much higher yields and they are resistant to different diseases.
Numerous autochthonous varieties have been developed during centuries of lettuce (Lactuca sativa L.) cultivation in Slovenia. In the Slovene Plant Gene bank (SPGB), maintained at the Agricultural Institute of Slovenia, 177 accessions are included that were obtained from various parts of Slovenia in the nineties of the last century.
Wildlife is one of Kenya’s greatest natural resource and is the foundation upon which nature-based tourism is based.
This report synthesizes the findings from field research on land and natural resource tenure in 11 administrative clan units (henceforth referred to as „clans‟) in Liberia, including Ding, Dobli, Gbanshay, Little Kola, Mana, Motor Road, Saykleken, Tengia, Upper Workor, Ylan, and the community of Nitrian.
