No-plough sugar cane farming being tested by TSC


, : No-plough sugar cane farming being tested by TSC. Taiwan Sugar 19: 33-34

"No-plough" cane farming is described as Taiwan's most revolutionary innovation in cane cultivation. After rice harvesting the land was not ploughed but immediately mechanically planted to cane. Germination and growth compared favourably with other crops.

However, the mechanisms by which nAChR activation stimulat...

The effect of landscape dynamics on carabid communities was investigated using a chronosequence of managed grassland sites. A total of 52 carabid species was found. Species richness was significantly higher in early than in later stages of grassla...
