Advances in Agronomy remains to be well-known as a number one reference and a prime resource of the newest and most sensible examine in agronomy. As constantly, the themes lined are different and exemplary of the panoply of material handled through this long-running serial. quantity sixty seven includes 4 accomplished and well timed experiences on subject matters within the crop and soil sciences. bankruptcy 1 addresses essentially the most lively parts in agronomic research--precision agriculture. bankruptcy 2 is a considerate overview on floor cost and solute interactions in soils. bankruptcy three completely covers advances within the use of molecular genetics to reinforce abiotic/edaphic rigidity resistance in turfgrass. bankruptcy four is an invaluable evaluation on an issue that's of significant curiosity to agronomists--allelopathy.

The Case for the Real Jesus: A Journalist Investigates Current Attacks on the Identity of Christ

Has sleek scholarship debunked the normal Christ? Has the church suppressed the reality approximately Jesus to improve its personal schedule? What if the true Jesus is way various from the atoning Savior worshipped throughout the centuries? within the Case for the true Jesus, former award-winning criminal editor Lee Strobel explores such hot-button questions as: * Did the church suppress old non-biblical files that paint a extra actual photo of Jesus than the 4 Gospels?

Example text

1995) report that the inability of current fertilizer recommendations to predict soil N supply and fertilizer N use efficiency in the field makes them inadequate to capture the benefits of site-specific N management. Walters et al. (1996) predicted N requirements from soil organic matter maps. Stevenson and van Kessel (1996) showed that following pea in rotation, the depressional areas had higher soil N and a reduction in fertilizer N would be needed in wheat to reduce the negative effect of excessive soil N supply, but this was not the case following wheat in rotation.

They need not be sampled with the same design, nor do they have the same potential for precision management. , 1997). Again, there has been little discussion in the precision agriculture literature of the congruency between the sample design with the enabling technologies, agronomic principles, and biophysical diversity. The objective of a specified sample unit and congruent sample design is to produce a quality map that has value for management decisions. , 1996b). Techniques to evaluate map quality include cross-validation and mean square estimates from the regression of estimated versus measured values obtained from validation sets.

1987). , 1997). In short, there appear to be no standards regarding the underlying agronomic principles that should be guiding the development and application of precision agriculture. 28 FRANCIS J. PIERCE AND PETER NOWAK Commercially, grid sampling is frequently done using a grid sampling intensity of one sample per hectare or less. Since the cost of grid soil sampling ($ haϪ1) is inversely proportional to the grid spacing squared, it is very easy for sampling costs to exceed the value in fertilizer savings as sampling intensity increases.
