Potassium fertilization of hemp (Cannabis sativa)
Abstract Potassium response trials were conducted on hemp on four sites with different levels of soil potassium in 2011 in which the main factor was variety and the second factor was potassium rate.Expand

Nitrogen fertilization of Miscanthus x giganteus: effects on nitrogen uptake, growth, yield and emissions from biomass combustion
A field experiment was carried out to study the effect of N fertilization on a recently established crop of Miscanthus x giganteus. Five N rates (0, 40, 80, 120 and 160 kg/ha/year) were appliedExpand
