This assignment will highlight the importance of utilising government publications to ensure that farmers are staying within the law, and the regulations of any schemes they may be a part of. It will also highlight the need to calculate the amount of nitrogen in animal manure for outwintering, as to not apply more than is allowed beforehand.
Fertiliser is key to attaining high yields when growing crops. RB209 is a publication produced by the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) to enable farmers, growers and agronomists to apply the correct amount of fertiliser for the particular situation.

Applying some of the N, P and K at sowing will give the crop a boost when germinating. Shortly after, it is important to apply 40-60Kg/Ha of N and P to allow the crop to keep growing, as brassicas are quick-growing crops. 6-10 weeks later, the rest of the fertiliser may be applied as necessary – it may be pertinent to carry out leaf herbage tests at this point, to identify any deficiencies.

The morning of November 9th, 2016, citizens of the United States awoke to learn that Donald Trump would be the next President of the United States. Some cried, some cheered, as for me, I felt numb as I sat looking at my phone in disbelief. As I reflected on the past few months, many thoughts rattled around my head and disappeared, but one message remained. Donald Trump didn’t win the election because he knows politics and how to lead the most powerful nation on planet earth, he won the election…
The Gone Boy and Fawn
In The Yearling, by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, Jody dreams of a boy’s voice calling “Flag!” and as the boy and yearling run side by side they are gone forever; this symbolizes Jody’s coming of age as he learns to cope with death, accept that one’s own needs are greater than a companion’s, and struggles with independent survival. During the beginning of the year in coming of age, Jody first learns to cope with death when his great friend Fodder-Wing passes from his…
cows which will be managed collectively as an enterprise by the women members. Those members who cannot afford to purchase a cow will work on the farm earning wages in return.
At the rate of 18 liters per day (average yield of milk per cow), the dairy farm will be able to sell 54,900 liters annually. Female calves will be kept at farm to replace the older cows while male calves will be sold around one year of age. On average 4 male calves will be sold per year.

into place throughout the contract. Failed to follow these restrictions will result in a cost penalty. Croppers must feed their team every weekday; mornings, noon, and nights. As well as Saturday and Sunday nights.
4. In the excerpt, A Sharecrop Contract (1882), punishments and fines were defined throughout the contract for sharecroppers who did not adhere to the rules and regulations of the contract to the farm landlord/owner. If such conditions and rules are not up to expectations, instead…
realization is what Deborah Miranda is trying to help her readers seek.
I choose these readings because I too have a difficult time finding my own identity. I need to appreciate my own personality of being gay, carry my voice even if it’s feminine, and be considered Latino with no embarrassment. It is important for me to appreciate myself and also my culture because it all ties in to the type of character I have become. It was developed the person I truly am and should be freely about.…
Agriculture Organization’s report Women Feed the World says, women use more plant diversity, both cultivated and uncultivated, than agriculture scientists know about. In Nigerian home gardens, women plant 18-57 plant species; in sub- Saharan Africa they cultivate as many as 120 different plants in the species left, alongside the cash crops managed by men; in Guatemala, home gardens of less than 0.1 ha have more than ten tree and crop species. In a single African home garden there are more than…
The theme of this speech from the movie “The Great Dictator”, is that we can achieve peace, equality, and happiness if we put aside our differences and not think of each other as “black” or “white”, or as “Christian” or “Muslim”, but as fellow human beings. Charlie Chaplin’s tone changes throughout the poem. He starts out with a calm and peaceful tone. But, as the speech goes on, and as his words become more and more inspiring, his tone becomes stronger and more direct. He uses metaphors and…
In his work the territorial imperative Philips, draws from the Zoological parallels and indicates that in a paradox, a threat to peoples' security at the personal level is an effective stimulus to seek a certain identity (5). A good example is when the society is in conflict. Religion gains the greater prominence when there is no security and helps nurture a particular identity that is under threat or undermined. In such conditions, the societies are able to develop the need for identification,…
According to marine ecologists, overfishing is the greatest threat to ocean ecosystems today. Overfishing occurs because fish are captured at a faster rate than they can reproduce. This problem started occurring when advanced fishing technology and an increased demand for fish have led to overfishing, causing several marine species to become extinct or endangered as a result. Thinking long term, overfishing can have a devastating impact on ocean communities as it destabilizes the food chain and…
