Look at this. Women comprise 30.3 per cent of the total cultivators and 42.7 per cent of agricultural labour (2011 Census). Nearly 24 per cent of fish farmers are women. In as many as 23 of the 29 states, women’s share in the total workforce in agriculture, forestry and fisheries is over 50 per cent. In states such as Chhattisgarh, Bihar and Madhya Pradesh, this share exceeds 70 per cent. Typically, their contribution to agriculture is more in hilly regions than in the plains.
Land availability being a limiting factor for the expansion of solar power capacity as well as for crop farming, carrying out both these pursuits together in a single solar-cum-agricultural farm can be an option to get over this constraint. This allows gainfully utilising the synergies between the two to boost net returns from the same piece of land. This concept has been tried out with good results in several countries, notably Japan, China, Germany and the UK.
Meliponiculture” is a relatively lesser known and grossly underexploited branch of beekeeping that involves rearing of stingless honeybees, technically called meliponines. It has not received much attention though it has a unique niche in the beekeeping sector as a producer of elite quality honey with medicinal properties and for crop pollination (transferring pollens to stigmas to form seeds) in situations where the normal honeybees are not so effective.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
