  • Conserving and Restoring Prees Heath Common Reserve, home of the only midlands population of the Silver-Studded Blue Butterfly case study

    Commencing in 2006, Butterfly Conservation started work to create a new large area (>20 hectares) of lowland heathland and acid grassland on existing arable land at Prees Heath Common, Whitchurch, Shropshire. The existing small and fragmented areas of heathland on Prees Heath Common supports the only remaining colony of the Silver-Studded Blue butterfly (Plebeius argus ) in the English ...

  • Re-coupling the carbon and water cycles by Natural Sequence Farming

    The techniques of Natural Sequence Farming (NSF) were developed during hands-on management of degraded farmland in the Upper Hunter Valley region of Australia. Early settlement of the continent by people with European cultural assumptions disrupted established interactions of water, soil, and plants resulting in lost fertility. Moreover, agricultural practices such as clearing, burning, ...

  • Distribution patterns of lead accumulation in roadside soils: a case study from Erzurum, Turkey

    Surface soils along roadsides or near to industrial areas may contain high concentrations of lead that adversely affect plant production. Lead contamination of roadside soils is generally attributed to the exhaust emissions of automobiles operating with leaded gasoline. The objectives of this study were to determine the relationships between lead accumulation in soils and the distance from the ...

  • Paperless at Schering

    Schering-Plough has made the transition to a paperless system for managing instrument calibration records. Frankly, I applaud this initiative. Given the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry’s relatively cautious approach to adopting electronic records-keeping systems, Schering- Plough’s decision to dispense with paper in the critical (in terms of GMP) arena of calibration is ...

  • Prediction of Soil and Nutrient Losses in A Highland Catchment

    Highland catchments in tropical regions are frequently subjected to soil erosion and the transport of chemicals downstream. Any drastic changes in land use will increase the severity of these processes of land degradation. A simulation study using GLEAMS (Groundwater Loading Effects of Agricultural Management Systems) was conducted at a catchment presently under tea farming in Cameron Highlands, ...

  • Giant black-grass requires lock stock approach

    Nigel Riches, Arable Technical Specialist for Certis, explains what he’s been seeing in the field. “Black-grass is a problem that in the past has generally been confined to the main arable areas, in the east of the country. “But increasingly we’re seeing this pernicious weed spreading further west each season. Where previously black-grass has not been a big issue in the ...

  • Dutch dealer creates Tricycle Valtra for customer

    In early March we visited W. and J. Schutte on their arable farm in Nagele, the Netherlands. The agricultural countryside in the Northeast Polder region is beautiful, and the sun is shining. The company is making itself ready for the first fieldwork in springtime. The previous day the Schuttes took delivery of two new Valtra N143 HiTech3 tractors, but they are not identical; on one, the front ...

  • Zimbabwe`s New Farmers Fail to Deliver

    HARARE, Zimbabwe, (ENS) - Six years after President Robert Mugabe sanctioned violent invasions of Zimbabwe's commercial farmland - mostly but not entirely white owned - by landless peasants, the facts show that the so-called new farmers have failed dramatically to produce crops to feed their countrymen. The poor peasants who led the invasions, at the behest of Mugabe, have ...

  • How green was my Vertical Farm?

    By 2050, 80% of the earth’s population will live in cities and 3 billion more people will need to be fed. The simple fact is we are running out of available land to grow enough food to feed them. If we can’t grow our cities outward to find more arable land, the only solution is to grow them upwards. This may change the way we design cities forever.The problem is real and immediate. Even by most ...

  • Emissions from Crops - POST Note

    Agriculture contributes 9% of the UK’s greenhouse-gas (GHG) emissions burden and 10-12% globally. Although there is a long-term declining trend from UK agriculture, the sector may account for a larger share of overall emissions in the future as other sectors reduce emissions. This POSTnote focuses on reducing GHG emissions from growing and storing arable and horticultural crops. ...
