Abstract

In connection with the forthcoming CRPs on ``Management of organic matter and nutrient turnover for increased sustainable agricultural production, using nuclear techniques`` and on ``The assessment of soil erosion through the use of {sup 137}Cs and related techniques, as a basis for soil conservation, sustainable agriculture production and environmental protection``, Consultants Meetings were organized in Vienna, Austria, from 4 to 7 September for Organic Matter and from 13 to 16 November, 1995 for Soil Erosion. Both Consultants Meetings were very productive and provided a unique opportunity to unify concepts and approaches in the applications of nuclear techniques in organic matter and soil erosion studies. The Workshop of the newly initiated Technical Co-operation Regional Project on ``Water balance and fertigation for crop improvement for West Asia`` was held in Antalya, Turkey, from September 25 to October 6, 1995, with participation of scientists from Iran, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Saudi Arabia and Turkey. In 1996, a new CRP on ``The use of nuclear techniques for better management of water and nutrients in rainfed arid and semi-arid areas for increased crop production`` is planned to be initiated. The basic problem to be addressed is that, even where water is scarce, a surprisingly low proportion  More>>

The basic problem to be addressed is that, even where water is scarce, a surprisingly low proportion of the water supplied for crop growth is actually transpired by the crop. Our research objective is to identify, by using nuclear techniques, strategies to increase the efficiency of water and nutrients utilized by the plants.}
