[German version] Fertilizer was used in ancient agriculture in order to preserve or improve the fertility of the soil used for cultivation; the choice of fertilization method in each case depended crucially on the social environment, economic conditions, climate, and local traditions. Even though

The relationships between wood anatomy in standing trees and the strength of boards were examined in Pinus radiata D. Don (thinned vs thinned and fertilized) at 2 contrasting sites. Fertilizer treatments were applied after mid-rotation thinning. Logs were taper sawn and boards, near the pre-treatment / post-treatment boundary, subjected to acoustic and strength assessment. Average wood property data from a 12-mm increment core obtained prior to harvest, was extracted from the relevant portion of the radius.

In general, fertilizer resulted in lower density, higher microfibril angle (MFA) and slightly lower stiffness. However, stiffness was still relatively high as the affected wood was from the more mature portion of the radius. SilviScan density and MFA data were good predictors of stiffness. Acoustic measurements on boards were strongly correlated with board stiffness. Path analyses explained up to 45% of the variance in stiffness, as a function of estimated MOE and log sweep.

Grain crops such as rice, wheat and other cereals are planted in rows to facilitate weed and disease control, fertiliser application and other agricultural practices that may occur during the growing season. The root-associated soil within the crop row is distinguishable from the bulk soil – it

ammonium concentration was higher than values found in natural ponds (Griffis-Kyle and Ritchie, 2007 ; Sahuquillo et al., 2012 ). Nevertheless, this is realistic because NH 4 NO 3 is among the most commonly used fertilizers throughout the world (FMA, MAFF and SOAFD, 1993). In natural systems, pulses of
