BISAC: TEC003000

This book examines the most up-to-date research in the agricultural field. The first chapter discusses growing techniques for raspberry plants suitable for subtropical areas. Chapter Two presents current information on raspberries postharvest technology and the main nutritional characteristics, composition in terms of macro and micronutrients, as well as the most abundant bioactive compounds in this fruit. Chapter Three provides a detailed analysis of reduction potential for methane emissions arising the the production of edible protein with Holstein cattle in Northern Germany. Chapter Four reviews farm management and feeding strategies for donkey milk production. Chapter Five focuses on the β-casein variant among different native and cross breed cattle maintain at India. Chapter Six presents the prospects of enhancing nitrogen use efficiency (NUE) via increasing soil organic matter (SOM) as a result of improving soil fertility. Chapter Seven analyses the detected spatial and temporal variations on grass aeroallergens as well as their possible interactions with air pollution as regards allergic diseases. Chapter Eight talks about the applications of rice hull carbonization and their potential to provide farmers opportunities for added income as a way of enhancing their resilience to the impacts of climate change. Chapter Nine discusses recent advances in biocontrol of stored-grain insects using entomopathogenic fungi. (Imprint: Nova)
