Series: Agricultural Research Updates

BISAC: SOC055000

This four-chapter monograph provides updates in the field of agricultural research. Chapter One assesses the risks to human health and the environment posed by potentially toxic elements in the soil-grapevine-air systems of vineyards. Chapter Two describes the optimal techniques for proper crop rotation based on factors such as the local economy, soil, weather, and logistics, particularly in the northwestern region of the cold temperate Canadian prairies. Chapter Three describes three research products that were developed to study sustainable agriculture production systems. Chapter Four focuses on the role of PM H+-ATPases in plant growth and development, addressing their participation in cell expansion, axillary bud outgrowth, pollen tube growth and potato tuberization.
