  • Photosynthetic Rate and Dynamic Environment

    This book deals with photosynthesis and growth of plants/crops from an environmental engineering and environmental physics point of view. A theory to CO2 diffusion or photosynthesis of a single leaf, a plant, plant community and forests is applied and discussed in detail in this book. It would be of interest to horticulturists, agronomists, ...

  • Waterlogging Signalling and Tolerance in Plants

    Waterlogging is a major problem for plant cultivation in many regions of the world.This book combines both academic and practical aspects of this topic. Based on recent progress in cell and molecular biology, various facets of waterlogging signalling and tolerance are addressed, starting from the molecular level, through membrane transport, cells ...

  • ETo Calculator - Evapotranspiration from a reference surface (CD-ROM)

    FAO Land and Water Digital Media Series - CD-ROMReference evapotranspiration (ETo) is defined as the rate of evapotranspiration from a hypothetical grass reference crop closely resembling an extensive surface of 8 to 15cm tall, green grass cover of uniform height, actively growing, completely shading the ground and not short of water. The main ...

  • The Origin of Clay Minerals in Soils and Weathered Rocks

    The importance of clay minerals and their origin is crucial to an understanding of the physico-chemical functions of the interface at the Earth’s surface. Their place is that of contact between the mineral world and the living world, plants and finally mankind. This contact zone is the realm of much of the environment as we see it today. If we can ...

  • Fodder oats: a world overview (En)

    Series: FAO Plant Production and Protection SeriesThis book, well illustrated, brings together information on the state of fodder oats worldwide, and is aimed mainly at agronomists and extension workers. It contains a series of regional studies focusing on oats used as fodder rather than grain. Oats are well adapted to areas of mild winters or ...

  • Economics of Sustainable Energy in Agriculture

    This book contains up-to-date studies on the economics of sustainable energy in agriculture. The studies focus on energy efficiency improvement and the use of biomass. Specific attention is paid to the economic aspects of land use and the competition for land, both for food production and dedicated energy crops. The book will be of special ...

  • Nitrogen Fixation with Non-Legumes

    Diazotrophic bacteria convert atmospheric nitrogen to plant-useable form and this input of nitrogen through biological fixation is of great agronomic importance. The contributions presented in this volume relate to free-living nitrogen fixers and the diazotrophs associated with plants. Symbiotic association of Frankia with non-legumes and ...

  • Tropical crop-livestock systems in conservation agriculture. The Brazilian experience (En)

    Series: Integrated Crop ManagementThis publication describes how pasture, fodder and livestock production have been integrated into conservation agriculture systems in Brazil's tropical zones. Vast areas of forest have been cleared in the tropical areas of Brazil for establishment of pastures that become unproductive once the native fertility of ...

  • Plant Nitrogen

    Jointly published with INRA, Paris.This book covers all aspects of the transfer of nitrogen from the soil and air to a final resting place in the seed protein of a crop plant. It describes the physiological and molecular mechanisms of ammonium and nitrate transport and assimilation, including symbiotic nitrogen fixation by the Rhizobiacea. Amino ...

  • Fertilizers and Environment

    Food production remains the highest agricultural priority, subject to the constraint that it be done in harmony with nature, or at least with minimum environmental pollution. The amount of fertilizer applied can be controlled using modern application techniques, including soil and crop management, guaranteeing higher economic profit and lower ...

  • Environmental Management of Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs)

    Clean and environmentally sound disposal of animal waste in the quantities that Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) produce can only be described as a challenge. Designed to provide practical information, Environmental Management of Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) covers the concepts and practices involved in the ...

  • Crop Field Response to Deficit Irrigation

    With limited water resources to divert for agriculture, innovations aimed at increasing efficient use of irrigation water must be developed. Among the means to survive the consequences of water scarcity and yet to sustain high crop production under irrigated agriculture with decreasing share of water, deficient irrigation programs are highly ...

  • Agricultural and Environmental Sustainability: Considerations for the Future

    Understand sustainable development from economic, ecological, and social perspectivesAs world population continues to increase, the need grows for a safe, sustainable supply of food. Agricultural and Environmental Sustainability: Considerations for the Future provides the latest research results and vital information on the process of producing an ...
