        The programme's goal is to improve the food security, nutrition and incomes of poor rural households by developing irrigation schemes for small-scale farmers in four states of Ethiopia. The programme targets poor rural households in high-density, drought-prone and food-insecure districts of the highlands. Agriculture in Ethiopia accounted for almost 45% of the GDP and about 85% of the export (Factbook, ). Five agricultural production systems can be distinguished in the country (Aquastat, ): The highland mixed farming system that is practiced by almost 80% of the population on 45% of the land that is above m above sea level. In thisFile Size: 2MB. Economic Efficiency of Mixed Crop-Livestock Production System in the North Eastern Highlands of Ethiopia: the Stochastic Frontier Approach Abstract: The general objective of the study was to estimate the economic efficiency of the mixed crop-livestock farmers in two districts of north eastern Ethiopia. Agriculture is the science and art of cultivating plants and livestock. Agriculture was the key development in the rise of sedentary human civilization, whereby farming of domesticated species created food surpluses that enabled people to live in cities. The history of agriculture began thousands of years ago. After gathering wild grains beginning at least , years ago, nascent farmers (—) European Union:
