Soil is a complex system of chemical, biological, and physical process interactions. These interactions must be well balanced in order to grow and obtain high yields of cultivated plants.
Soon Ukraine is about to lift the moratorium on the sale of farmlands. In this regard, EOS Crop Monitoring has launched an interactive satellite map showing the real state of the national agribank. The data allows to reevaluate the actual size of the fields which is why multiple regions have revealed to contain more farmland than the national registry.
Minerals are the source of vital energy for plants. These are not food as green organisms produce it on their own via photosynthesis (transforming the energy of sunlight into the energy of chemical reactions). They are basically ‘vitamins’ or ‘dietary supplements’ necessary for crops improvement.
The awareness on causes, consequences, and preventive measures of soil degradation is crucial for farmers around the globe. The concept of soil degradation refers to the environmental processes that destroys soil structure, affects its fertility, and undermines the quality of water. Soil endures physical, chemical, and biological changes depending on the factor that drives degradation. The key items that expedite degradation are as follows: water, wind, ice movement, and gravity.
To yield abundant crops, an agrarian has to seed the right plant, at the right time, and in the right place. The right place is determined not only by the geographic location and climate peculiarities but types of soil as well.
Sufficient levels of soil moisture are an important condition for proper plant formation and high crop yields. For the plant, water serves not only as an agent of moisture restoration, but also as a temperature regulator. In the process of thermoregulation, the plant evaporates up to 99% of all water obtained, utilizing only 0.2% to 0.5% for the formation of vegetative mass. Therefore it is easy to understand that the plant has different needs for moisture depending on the weather conditions and growth stages.
