Some Theoretical and Practical Aspects of Technical Efficiency
Technical efficiency is, apart from allocative efficiency, a component of economic efficiency in the assessment of the activity of each enterprise or project. In the most general sense, it means the ratio of the output achieved to the inputs incurred to achieve it, and in the case of a multidimensional sum of outputs, to the sum of inputs. It describes how inputs are transformed into outputs or inputs into a sum of outputs.

Intelligent Prediction Method for Agricultural Product Price
Agricultural price prediction is a hot research topic in the field of agriculture, and accurate prediction of agricultural prices is crucial to realize the sustainable and healthy development of agriculture. Compared with econometric and mathematical-statistical methods, intelligent forecasting methods have fewer restrictions and assumptions in modeling and can effectively model nonlinear relationships in price series.

Irrigation Advisory Services
The EU research project OPERA—“Operationalizing the increase of water use efficiency and resilience in irrigation” focuses on the sustainable management of water resources in agriculture and the use of irrigation advisory services (IASs), and thus, intelligent irrigation systems that provide information to a large number of farmers have become useful tools for irrigation programs. The issue is not new, and extensive research and investments have been made to develop more advanced methods and practices to accurately provide water to the crops based on their needs.

Agricultural Food System Transformation on China’s Food Security
With the development of economy, the definition of food security has undergone a series of changes. The connotation of food security has undergone changes from macro total amount to micro individual, from production to livelihood, and from objective index to subjective perception. Food security is associated with poverty, and food diversity, cultural acceptance, malnutrition and child mortality, environmental and climate impacts, agricultural land use structure, energy and water resource constraints, and other influencing factors have been gradually taken into consideration as influences.

The Integration of Cultural Tourism Industry
The development and integration of industries have promoted economic growth and gradually become an important perspective to understand the country’s modernized construction. The cultural industry and the tourism industry are naturally coupled, which is an important part of the process of industrial integration. In addition, the country’s drive towards modernization needs to improve the overall level of industrial integration, and rural revitalization is one of the key links to this.

Socio-Economic Activities Involving Wild Boars and Their Habits
The contexts of wild ungulate overabundance in Europe are protected, hunting, forestry, arable farming, livestock farming, and peri-urban areas. Wild boar (Sus scrofa) also known as the wild swine, common wild pig, Eurasian wild pig, or simply wild pig, can be considered the progenitor of the domestic pig (Sus scrofa domesticus).

Intensive Pig Farming
The impacts of agriculture in general and livestock farming in particular on environmental degradation have been causing increasing concern worldwide, especially in livestock production areas with a high animal density. However, advanced breeding and feeding strategies are needed to supply the growing global demand for animal protein. Wildlife might be a substitute for pork, beef, and poultry from intensive farming; this may be the case for wild boar, but the consumption rate is low.

Destination-Centric Wine Exports
With more than 40% of produced wine crossing borders, wine represents a truly global beverage. Wine export serves as a sales lever, especially for producers where home wine consumption diminishes but the global wine business is highly competitive. The literature tells that in competitive market innovation, customer centrism, and increasing sustainability are key. Wine export offerings need to meet the customer’s desires in the targeted foreign destinations. German wine providers have to catch-up in regard to destination-specific preferences so they can offer adaptation or suffer a competitive disadvantage in sustainability positioning.
