This requires sustaining food production, which can be realized by increasing land and labour efficiency in agriculture through farm mechanization. Farm mechanization is considered to be one of the several pathways of agricultural development. In modern agricultural practices, mechanization of farm is needed from the view point of profitability of agriculture. A farming system cannot sustain with the traditional machinery. The mechanization of farm is also inductive to the diversification of the cropping system. The book will provide a venue for the sharing of practical application of existing systems and technologies as well as of strategies that will be most effective in tackling the very complex socioeconomic and environmental factors influencing the adoption and utilization of farm machineries.

When IPM was introduced to rice farmers in the Philippines through farmer field school (FFS), it spread out fast to non-FFS farmers. Subsequently, the diffusion tipped on a certain point and the rice IPM has gained widespread adoption. The Philippine case showed that enabling farmers to use their social capital through strategic recruitment of FFS participants, diffusion of the rice IPM is hastened and sustained, and so, this facilitated technology adoption. Kinship holds primacy in the social relations among Filipino farmers. Thus, sharing of rice IPM knowledge is directed more toward kin members, a behavior largely expected in a Filipino community due to normative obligations and expectations placed on kin members especially siblings and members of the nuclear household. Aside from kinship, neighbor relationship is equally important in the rice IPM diffusion and adoption because of huntahan : a Filipino culture of holding spontaneous informal discussion by which sharing takes place spontaneously also to house neighbors, farm neighbors, and fellow members of the farmer s association. It is in the farm huntahan however where sharing and learning effectively takes place.

Human beings cooperate from single occasions to repeated actions which can even pass from one generation to the other. Cooperation is mostly successful through network formation which can have many patterns: Friendship network among adolescents, trade network between countries, labor sharing network among rural households and so on. Labor sharing network in rural Ethiopia is the focus of this research. In rural Ethiopia it's hard to find insurances and credit facilities for small farm holders. Agricultural labor market is still at its lowest stage. Using panel data (1994-2009) from rural Ethiopia, the study tried to discuss about the role of informal labor sharing institutes, as a coping strategies by the time when different type of shocks happen. Three types of shocks, having different properties, are chosen to address shock variables. Health shock, flood shock and wild animal invasion of farms. These shocks have been major problem in rural Ethiopia next to drought for many decades. Therefore the study confirms that informal labor sharing institutions in general are used by rural households as a means of coping strategies through acquiring enough labor force against shocks.
