Ecologically induced Model of Development

Sustainability of agriculture can be achieved to a great extent through a fusion of operation of informal market systems and agri-producing systems, In this context the idea generated through the ecologically induced model of development of market systems may be useful (Fig….). The study of the model shows that The market systems comprise of three variable-group components, i.e. Habitat, Workplace and Market Ecology. The habitat and work place may represent agri-producing systems.
Each of the three variable groups interact with consumer and trader components of market systems. Market systems are energised by the trinity of demand, supply and functional specialisation. The accumulative dynamics of these three determinants demonstrates the consequent serviceableness of the process of marketing. The utility will be either adequate or inadequate. If the utility of the process of marketing is inadequate it will lead to re-organisation of marketing. Market reorganisation may be viewed in terms of spatio-temporal and functional aspects. On the other hand if utility is adequate then it may lead to functional specialisation, qualitative improvements of goods and services leading to the enhancement of market area regions.

The development of market systems will follow. The changing equation between adequacy or inadequacy of market utility will influence, among other things, the nature of land use in the influence area of market centres. The process of market re-organisation will call for land use changes. In case of utility factor being adequate functional specialisation will follow which in turn will demand a share of specialised items of demand in the current land use. In both the cases agri-production will be changing. It is here that the question of sustainability of agr-production systems vis-a-vis informal market systems reposes.

It may further be observed in the model that the mutual exchange between producer-trader and consumers may result in varying ratio of profit or satisfaction. In case of increasing profit the producer-trader or farmer-trader may invest more in production. This will lead to spatio-temporal integration in concerned market systems. If profit is less or not adequate then the threshold of agri-produce will also undergo a change. This model thus makes it possible to appreciate the relationship between market systems and sustainability of agriculture.

Is it your intention to obfuscate by the deliberate use of serpentine sentences? In other words, what in the world are you talking about?

Why don't you write in plain English? Are you afraid of being exposed as the intellectaul bankrupt you are?

Dude, write as you feel. This is a blog. Not a Government report. Jeez.
