  • Solutions To Soil Erosion

    Soil erosion is one of the most serious threats in our world. Humans cause 40% of soil erosion. Soil erosion is topsoil, which is organic soil made up with rich nutrients. Erosion can be caused by careless farming techniques that lead to water erosion. When it is raining and you are walking to class you can see soil erosion where they have been working beside the English building. Soil erosion and water erosion is practically the same thing. No one will ever notice soil erosion because nobody…

  • The Importance Of Biomass Allocation Within Brassica Rapus

    impact of changing soil textures and nutrient availabilities upon biomass allocation within Brassica rapus. From the data collected, we can conclude that soil texture and it’s influence upon nutrient availability is significant in determining biomass allocation within B. rapus. In our study, we found that soil texture primarily determined root biomass while the degree of nutrient availability, provided by fertilization, primarily determined shoot biomass. This means that in sandier soils, root…

  • Bulk Density And Porosity Lab Report

    Laboratory Report 2: Soil Texture, Bulk density and Porosity Introduction Soil Texture The classification of soil texture is determined by the percentage of each of the soil separates. Soil separates are mineral particles smaller than 2mm, and these particles are sand, silt and clay. These textures are separated by the size of the particles, with sand being the largest between 2mm and 0.05mm, silt at between 0.05mm and 0.002mm, and clay at <0.002mm. The size of the particles influences the…

  • Boreal And Coniferous Forest Essay

    Boreal, Coniferous, and Deciduous Forests Boreal, deciduous, and coniferous forests each possess distinctive traits and soil characteristics. Forests soils give important contributions in nitrogen and phosphorus transformations. These transformations are dependable on the weather conditions of the forest and the type of vegetation it contains. Soil mineralogy and organic matter also play an important role in the nitrogen and phosphorus transformations on the forest floor. Boreal forests are…

  • Jacaranda

    The Mashigo Millionaire Wine Farm in Bordeaux France Merlot thrives in cold soil, particularly ferrous clay. The vine tends to bud early which gives it some risk to cold frost and its thinner skin increases its susceptibility to the viticultural hazard of Botrytis bunch rot. If bad weather occurs during flowering, the Merlot vine is prone to develop coulure. The vine can also be susceptible to downy mildew (though it has better resistance to powdery mildew than other Bordeaux varieties) and to…

  • Rotavator Case Study

    The weeding method included two power tiller operated weeders Cultivator and Rotavator. Study was carried out at three different forward speeds of 1, 1.5 and 2km/hr. For all the factors Rotavator gave superior results than Cultivator. The maximum soil manipulation was achieved by Rotavator at lowest forward speed of 1km/hr. which leads to higher crop yield. Least time required for weeding was obtained by Rotavator at forward speed of 2km/hr. which is 7.80hr/ha while for Cultivator for same speed…
