Series: Agricultural Research Updates
BISAC: TEC003000

This volume encompasses nine chapters that detail advances in agricultural research. The object of the study in chapter one was the biocenosis of liquid manure (LN) of cattle in the north of Germany in the summer of 2023. The dynamics of the transfer of the biocenosis of genomes of microorganisms in liquid cow manure along the agricultural route is reviewed in chapter two. The aim of chapter three is to highlight the most relevant properties and latest scientific information on different applications of clinoptilolite. Chapter four discusses the molecular mechanism of cooperative thermos stability and genome transformation. Chapter five studies the effect of vermicompost and nitrogen fertilizers on the growth and production of Aloe vera. Chapter six discusses the pitfalls of the highly soil extractive farming (read green revolution), and, whether it has led to eradication of hunger in India. Chapter seven collectively manifests the vital role of chitosan-coated metal/metal oxide nanocomposites for plant production and protection. Chapter eight investigates how agri-food supply chains respond to the challenge of sustainability in terms of business model (BM) transformation. The final chapter reviews academic articles on agricultural extension with a focus on innovation, outreach, and rural development in underdeveloped nations.
