Nitrogen Recovery and Transport Efficiency of Winter Rapeseed and Residual Nitrogen Effect on Subsequent Sesame using 15N Labelling Technique
Organic farmers rely primarily on preventive, cultural, and integrated methods of pest and disease management. Additionally, there are a number of materials that can complement and support organic management. This guide was developed to provide a useful and scientifically accurate reference for organic farmers and agricultural professionals who are searching for information on best practices, available materials, and perhaps most importantly, the efficacy of materials that are allowed for use in organic systems.
