  • Regional modelling for optimal allocation of agricultural crops considering environmental impacts, housing value and leisure preferences

    Regional planning should consider the impact of agricultural crops on housing value and leisure, as well as on the local environment. We designed an optimisation model for allocating agricultural crops based on farmers' profits as well as the impact on these three factors. Each crop creates a different landscape, as well as a different effect on shading and noise reduction. This in turn ...

  • Effect of Dislodging Techniques on Foliar Residue Determination for Agricultural Crops

    Abstract  The Agricultural Reentry Task Force (ARTF) conducted a study to determine whether different dislodgeable foliar residue (DFR) techniques had any effect on the amount of residues dislodged from the leaves of vegetable crops. Four previously employed techniques were evaluated with two chemicals (carbaryl and methomyl) on two crops (cabbage and lettuce). Carbaryl, a moderately ...

  • Estimation of aeromycoflora in jute fields

    An air survey of jute fields for two seasons in West Bengal, India, revealed that the total colony forming units (CFUs) varied with time, showing peaks (231 and 483 CFUs, respectively) during harvesting of the crop. The effect of temperature as well as relative humidity is probably not so significant. However, the total rainfall does count. The CFUs are inversely proportional to the total ...
