Order Description

APMA41 ONLY Paper on The adaptation of a chosen tropical farming system (80%; DUE 12 noon 9th January))
For this assignment, you need to select ONE farming system in the tropics from the table below and illustrate, with referenced examples, why the chosen system occurs
where it does and how its component parts are influenced/constrained by biological, environmental/physical, edaphic and socio-economic factors.
Adaptation should be considered first in terms of biotic and abiotic factors. However, the role/influence of non-biological factors such as labour, access to markets,
wealth etc. should also be considered and don’t forget about crop/animal choice and agronomy/husbandry.
I have asked you to write a paper rather than an essay, which gives you the freedom to organise and present this how you want. Use tables and figures. Your paper MUST
include a detailed description of the farming system and this description should include and refer to a diagrammatic representation of it. Try to
demonstrate/illustrate/provide evidence for different adaptations and you may find it useful to focus on a particular location/country for farming systems which occur
in different countries; the text should only be highlighting key principles and differences and should not comprise a lengthy description of each aspect of the system.
You will find it helpful to include seasonal cropping patterns for the main crops and seasonal feeding calendars for any livestock in the system.
The word limit is 3500 words excluding tables, figures and references. The description, diagram and account of the adaptation of the farming system will be worth
three-quarters of the marks, the remaining quarter being for presentation and referencing. Please submit via the Module Assignment tab on Blackboard.
