  • Groundskeeping Safety: Be A Pro! (Video)

    Slash the hazards and cut away the dangers of groundskeeping. As professional groundskeepers know, maintaining lawns, trees and shrubs requires potentially dangerous equipment and chemicals. Prune and refine your safety measures with this program. It explains how one can avoid unnecessary accidents by thinking: safe? or sorry? It also ...

  • Functional-Structural Plant Modelling in Crop Production

    Functional-structural plant models (FSPMs) describe in quantitative terms the development over time of the three-dimensional (3D) structure of plants as governed by physiological processes and affected by environmental factors. FSPMs are particularly suited to analyse problems in which the spatial structure of the plant or its canopy is an ...

  • Broadening the Genetic Base of Crop Production

    This book focuses on the previously neglected interface between the conservation of plant genetic resources and their utilization. Only through utilization can the potential value of conserved genetic resources be realized. However, as this book shows, much conserved germplasm has to be subjected to long-term pre-breeding and genetic enhancement ...

  • Inland fisheries livelihoods in Central Asia. Policy interventions and opportunities

    FAO Fisheries and Aquaculture Technical PapersInland fisheries livelihoods in Central Asia have been highly affected by the deterioration in the economic environment after the collapse of the former Union of the Soviet Socialist Republics in 1991. This publication discusses current policies and potential livelihood-enhancing policy interventions. ...

  • Microbial Activity in the Rhizosphere

    The rhizosphere is a very complex environment. The interactions among microorganisms and the plant roots are essential for the nutrition, growth and productivity of the plant. On the other hand, the microorganisms also benefit from their interactions with the plant. Rhizosphere studies are of interest to agriculturists, soil biologists, chemists, ...

  • Amazonian Dark Earths

    Amazonian Dark Earths are not only a testament to the vanished civilizations of the Amazon Basin, but may provide the answer to how the large, sophisticated societies were able to sustain intensive agriculture in an environment with mostly infertile soils. Locally known as Terra Preta de Indio or Indian black earth, these anomalous soils are even ...

  • Physical Methods in Agriculture

    The papers in this book deal with both the physical theories and their applications in the full broad range of agriculture: soils, their parameters and transport processes, soil technology, precision agriculture, agricultural products and their processing, testing and storage and products, genetic modification of agricultural plants. In all those ...

  • Globalization of food systems in developing countries: impact on food security and nutrition (En)

    Series: FAO Food and Nutrition PapersFood systems are being transformed at an unprecedented rate as a result of global economic and social change. Urbanization, foreign direct investment in markets of developing countries and increasing incomes are prime facilitators for the observed changes, while social changes such as the increased number of ...

  • Post-harvest Pathology

    As a collection of papers that includes material presented at the 2008 International Congress for Plant Pathology, this text features research right at the leading edge of the field. The latest findings are particularly crucial in their implications for fruit production; an important market sector where in some areas up to 50 per cent of the crop ...

  • Management of Biological Nitrogen Fixation for the Development of More Productive and Sustainable Agricultural Systems

    The subsistence agriculture of the pre-chemical era efficiently sustained the nitrogen status of soils by maintaining a balance between N loss and N gain from biological nitrogen fixation (BNF): the microbial conversion of atmospheric N to a form usable by plants. This was possible with less intensive cropping, adaptation of rational crop ...
