Herein lies an important role for the agricultural research community and the CGIAR more specifically. Whereas early 20th-century scholars emphasised the thorough Indianisation of Southeast Asia, more recent authors argued that this influence was very limited and affected only a small section of the elite. The generation of electricity from nuclear energy is still in its initial stages in India and Pakistan.
These and other commonalities have yet to produce a conscious or precise Southeast Asian identity, but they have given substance to the idea of Southeast Asia as a definable world region and have provided a framework for the comparative study of its components. Dwarf strains of these crops were introduced in areas of favorable environment in parts of the northern plains of India and Pakistan. Is the answer to this question increased investment, knowledge-transfer and innovation, financial inclusion and market access for farmers, improved policies, and better infrastructure? Each actor contributes their expertise —and yields benefits from the improved value chain as a result. There were only two large modern plants, all in India, devoted entirely to the production of iron and steel items nearly one million ton of crude steel and another million ton of pig iron.
Third, data processing and evaluation of remotely sensed images is often a major challenge. Government and NGOs, too, are positively affected. Southeast Asia was now situated in the central area of convergence of the Indian and the East Asian maritime trade routes, the basis for economic and cultural growth. By the 8th century the Buddhist Srivijaya kingdom emerged as a major trading power in central Maritime Southeast Asia and around the same period the Shailendra dynasty of Java extensively promoted Buddhist art that found its strongest expression in the vast Borobudur monument. Buddhist teachings, that almost simultaneously arrived in Southeast Asia developed during the subsequent centuries an exalted distinction and eventually came to be perceived as more appealing to the demands of the general population, a belief system and philosophy that addresses concrete human affairs. Indonesia, for example, is more than 3, miles from west to east exceeding the west-east extent of the continental United States and more than 1, miles from north to south; the area of Laos is only slightly smaller than that of the United Kingdom; and Myanmar is considerably larger than France.

Second, the notion of satellites orbiting the earth and collecting images from space is an abstract concept to many farmers, and much evidence has shown that insurance products must be presented with simplicity and transparency to generate sufficient interest among potential buyers.
Rule in accord with universal moral principles represented in the concept of the devaraja was more appealing than the Chinese concept of intermediaries. Based on this success, the government is now aiming to institutionalize the programme and take it to more districts, while also linking processing, trade, finance and sustainability to coffee production across the country.
The agricultural research community can also play an important role by positioning insurance as one instrument in a larger portfolio of risk management tools. Many of these are under threat from population pressures, pollution and increasing demands on resources.
Air and rail transport, and certain types of manufacturing such as military hardware and nuclear energy equipment, are under direct government control.
Mainland Southeast Asia is divided into the countries of CambodiaLaosMyanmar BurmaThailandVietnamand the small city-state of Singapore at the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula; Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam, which occupy the eastern portion of the mainland, often are collectively called the Indochinese Peninsula.
Therefore, it is no longer desirable to write only a static geography of agricultural development of South Asia, and it is also equally important, above, all to examine, explain, identify and understand the recognisable ceaseless patterns of change in agricultural development levels. The metropolitan region of Kolkata and several cities of Bangladesh are the centers of jute manufacturing.
However, crop yields in South Asian nations still remain among the lowest in the world. There are marked structural differences between the mainland and insular portions of the region. Agricultural research has helped advance the use of satellite imagery and other remote sensing techniques for crop loss assessment, and case studies are showing that it is possible to use such methods to detect prevented or delayed sowing, which could ultimately reduce the number of crop samples required for village-level yield assessments.

Asia's expanding land and maritime trade had led to socio-economic interaction and cultural stimulation and diffusion of mainly Hindu beliefs into the regional cosmology of Southeast Asia.
Having recently committed to a formal economic community, ASEAN provides prime conditions for cooperation and partnership on food security.
Infirst India and later Pakistan introduced the newly developed high- yielding varieties of wheat and rice. Ranking fairly high among the producers of iron ore, coal, mica, and manganese, it also has extensive reserves of chromite, bauxite, and limestone.
Unlike India, heavy industry did not greatly expand in Pakistan or Bangladesh largely as a consequence of their limited resource base.
They also address specific issues such as supply-chain inefficiencies, access to agri-finance, and how to attract investment and boost the use of technology.
There is considerable interest within the international development community in mitigating these risks through insurance. Some remarkable results are already visible. The data have been presented in maps enlightening patterns and dynamics of agricultural inputs and outputs, and the cartographic work is of high quality.
Although knowledge about port localities and shipping lanes is very limited, it is assumed that most of this exchange took place on land routes and only a small percentage was shipped "on coastal vessels crewed by Malay and Yue traders".In fact, poultry production in Southeast Asia has increased at a rate of six percent per year, faster than any region other than the Former Soviet Union and South Asia.
To keep up with growing demand, Southeast Asian poultry producers are turning to modernized production practices and facilities. This has helped boost demand for U.S. soybean meal. Mar 04, · ‘Swidden agriculture’ or shifting cultivation has been practised in the uplands of Southeast Asia for centuries and is estimated to support up to million people, most of whom are poor and rely on natural resources to meet their daily needs.
It is considered by some as one of the earliest examples of traditional ‘agroforestry’. agricultural trade in South Asia. The fourth sections attempts to find some linkage between agricultural trade, climate change and food security in the region. The fifth section concludes the paper.

pacts on agricultural production from climate change. A. Agriculture’s role in South Asian economies “Of the billion people worldwide living in dollar poverty, over 43 percent are found in South Asia. Of these, the vast majority live in rural areas.”1 South Asia is still predominantly rural. Assuming a normal monsoon season (June-September), India’s fluid milk production is forecast to rise from an estimated MMT in Calendar Year (CY) to million metric tons.
The index is designed to provide exposure to 40 leading companies from the emerging markets of Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Thailand through liquid stocks trading on the primary exchange of those countries.
