This single-volume reference updates students, researchers, and practitioners on research into critical supply chain issues in the food business. It covers fundamental concepts and design methodologies, technologies and applications, organization and social implications, and critical issues and emerging trends. The topics include developing a framework for next-generation integrated agro food-advisory systems in developing countries, regional development disparities in Romanian agriculture and rural development: a multi-criteria approach, organic agriculture as a tool to make the economy green, the evolution of effective leadership practices in the Botswana Horticulture Council, and an agent-based hydro-informatics approach for engaging farmers in irrigation water management in Saudi Arabia.
