Series: Agricultural Research Updates
BISAC: TEC003000

This book examines the most up-to-date research in the agricultural field. Chapter One discusses advances in seed-priming. Chapter Two examines the relationship between TFS (Total Foliar Surface) and EFS (Efficient Foliar Surface) and quality of grapes and production of vine stocks. Chapter Three focuses on the influence of plant-fungal interactions viz-a-viz other agroecosystem variables on the mechanism of agronomic system’s selection, and determination of crop development and production. Chapter Four focuses on biocontrol and the influence of bacterial small molecules on these interspecies interactions and on the survival of Bacillus spp. Chapter Five reviews the addition of leonardites to increase soil available phophorus levels in vineyard calcareous soils. Chapter Six introduces the artificial neural network modeling of sugar beet osmotic dehydration. Chapter Seven discusses microwave assisted drying of sugar beet pulp. (Imprint: Nova)
