Series: Agricultural Research Updates
BISAC: SOC055000

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 impacts of the Fukushima nuclear disaster on Japanese agriculture and food chains; plant nutrients, plant growth retardants, and cotton production; response of olive trees to deficit irrigation regimes; improving selectivity in trawl fisheries; grazing management of native and naturalized pastures in harsh environments; sustainable grazing systems for the enhancement of livestock production and biodiversity in less-favored heathland areas of northern humid Spain; genomic organization and comparative analysis of the genome of domesticated animals and poultry; and in-depth studies of cattle-manure-compost activated carbons for Cu(Ii) ions removal.
