    Union Catalogue of Agricultural Libraries in the Netherlands

    The WUR Library Catalogue contains bibliographic data on books and periodicals held by the libraries of Wageningen University and Research Centre and some 15 associated libraries. Holding data are added to each record.

    Subjects covered include Agrotechnology, Food and Food Production, Plant and Animal Sciences, Soil Science, Geo-information, Landscape and Spatial Planning, Water and Climate, Ecosystem Studies, Economics and Society.

    The joint collections of the participating libraries cover a substantial part of the internationally available scientific literature in these disciplines.

    As far as Dutch scientific literature in these fields is concerned, coverage can be considered near 100%, including much of the so-called "grey literature".

    All titles are entered in their original language. Keywords are added to facilitate subject searching.

    The database is updated every day and now contains over 830.000 records.

Experiments were carried out with maize during 1959-61 to find the effect of skips (gaps) on adjoining hills and some factors influencing this effect. The effect of skips was influenced by the size and shape of skips, the type of stand, nitrogen fertilizer, the maize hybrids and the weather.

There was an increase in the yield of hills adjoining a skip in the same row and in adjacent rows. The effect of a skip on the direct neighbour in the row was very high.

The present study clearly demonstrated that both size and shape of the skip had to be considered.

Hybrids differed widely in response to skips, stand and nitrogen levels.

The use of adjustment formulae based on the oversimplified concept of a constant adjustment percentage of compensation for the loss of yield due to skips generally led to erroneous conclusions.

The 'normal plant method' of adjustment gave the best estimate of plot yield.
