BISAC: TEC003090

This compilation examines agricultural research from across the globe and covers a broad spectrum of related topics. In this book, the authors discuss research including the competitiveness of Bulgarian farms in conditions of EU CAP implementation; perennial weeds and management in Argentinean crop systems; the anti-inflammatory effects of the waste components from soybeans; dry matter production, yield dynamics and chemical composition of perennial grass and forage legume mixtures at various seeding rate proportions; genetic variations of globulin composition in soybean seeds; different effects of garlic preparations; vegetable soybean (edamame) production; the effect of nitrogen (N) fertilizer and foliar application of potassium (K) and mepiquat chloride (MC) on the yield of cotton; and rapid methods for improving the nutritional quality of hydroponic leafy vegetables before harvest.
