  • Sustainability of commercial vegetable production under fallow systems in the uplands of Mindinao, Philippines
  • Agropedology ; Fallow land ; Mountain ; Philippines ; Soil properties ; Sustainable development ; Vegetable cultivation
  • zAssessment of the quality of fallow lands in northnern Mindanao via a farm survey and soil sampling. Only 21 percent of commercial vegetable growers fallowed land, with an average re-cultivation of four years. Some land fallowers had a net return
  • from vegetable crops, but most lost money. Timber trees (usually Eucalyptus) and fruit trees were usually planted to rejuvenate the fallow lands. Authors call for study to select proper tree species and tree/vegetable systems. - (SLD)
  • Water balance and soil loss under long fallow agriculture in the Venezuelan Andes
  • Andes ; Fallow land ; Farming system ; Impact study ; Mountain ; Runoff ; Soil erosion ; Venezuela ; Water balance
  • In the páramo belt of the Venezuelan Andes, a long fallow agriculture is practiced to cultivate potatoes and cereals. Total rainfall, surface runoff, soil moisture, drainage, and soil loss were measured for 2 years on 10 plots cropped with potatoes
  • and on two successional plots with fallow periods of 1 and 15 years, and the A. found that runoff and soil loss, after a few months of fallow, were less on the fallow plots. - (SLD)
  • The influence of land use and fallow period on the properties of two calcareous soils in the humid tropics of southern Mexico
  • Agricultural land use ; Agricultural practice ; Chiapas ; Fallow land ; Land use ; Mexico ; Soil ; Soil properties ; Tropical zone
  • The aim was to assess the effects of land use and duration of fallow (cropland/young fallow, shrub fallow, tree-fallow, forest) on soil physical and chemical properties (profile morphology, dry bulk density, clay content, organic matter, total N, C
  • Sectoral fallow systems and the management of soil fertility : the rationality of indigenous knowledge in the High Andes of Peru
  • Agricultural practice ; Agrosystem ; Andes ; Bolivia ; Environmental management ; Fallow land ; High mountain ; Land use ; Mountain ; Phytomass ; Rational use
  • Sectoral fallow systems are commonly used in the Bolivian High Andes. Fields in the study erae (Japo, Department of Cochabamba) are cultivated for 3 years with potatoes as the first crop and then lie fallow for 9 years. A participatory research
  • approach was used to obtain information on indigenous knowledge of farming practices. Subterranean phytomass was identifed as the key factor in nutrient storage during the fallow period. Author found farming practices to be entirely rational. - (SLD)

  • in cultivated land today is generally linked to arable land, of which a portion is either not cultivated or lying fallow. In this work, the A. analyzes the occurrence of fallows in Croatia within the Croatian macro-regions and the spheres from 1970. Lands
  • The extent of land used for cultivation has changed frequently throughout history. Generally, increases and decreases of farm land followed a respective change in the population of a given area. In to-day's world, however, there are more factors
  • to be considered. The acreage of cultivated land, for example, is reduced in areas where there is an increase in population and in the standard of living. This modern phenomenon is obviously a reflection of existing social processes and systems. Reduction
  • Effects of two perennials, fallow and millet on distribution of phosphorus in soil and biomass on sloping loess land, China

  • This study assesses the impact of vegetation restoration on the distribution of phosphorus (P) and aboveground biomass on a sloping land in the Liudaogou catchment in Shenmu County. the AA. use 4 experimental plots with a shrub, Korshinsk Peashrub

  • Leaching of nitrate-N (NO3-N) from cropped and fallow soil - a lysimeter study with ambient and imposed rainfall regimes

  • A three-year investigation into the effects of nitrogen (N) fertiliser rates and rainfall on nitrate-N (NO3-N) leaching from spring barley and Fallow was carried out in a lysimeter unit. The soils was well drained, moderately deep and similar
  • to soils used to grow cereals in Ireland. The Fallow treatment resulted in large removals of N in the drainage water with high concentrations of NO3-N. The relative importance of the results to the designation of Nitrate Vulnerable Zones and possible

  • The aim of this study was to identify these successional land-cover types and quantify their areal proportions in regions deforested during the past 37 years around the city of Kisangani, D.R. Congo. The fallow vegetation continuum was categorized

  • in different stages, adapted from existing classifications. Ground-truth points describing the present-day vegetation were obtained during a field campaign and used for supervised and validated land-cover classification of these categories, using the Landsat
  • landscapes. Landsat images of 1975, 1990, and 2001 were analyzed. Present-day mature tree fallow is less abundant on areas deforested during 1975-1990. The relative areal proportions were used to refine a deforestation scenario and apply it to existing data

  • The commonly held notion that marginal land, grazing areas or fallow land in the Sahel are increasingly brought into cultivation is discussed. Based on empirical evidence from three villages in the Oudalan Province, Burkina Faso, land use
  • at the local level is discussed. Commonly accepted theories concerning forces driving land use changes are compared to observed trends. Only a multidisciplinary and hierarchical framework will really suffice to analyse land use dynamics.
