    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.

Ten Have described the results of research on cultural practices and breeding work, on the very heavy clay soils of the Prince Bernhard Polder and the Wageningen Project during the years 1952 to 1965. The chapters are: Introduction, Surface and underground drainage, Tillage and seedbed preparation, Sowing, The optimum seed rate, Water management, Weed Control, Fertilizers, Control of diseases and pests, The cropping system, Effect of harvesting date on some characteristics of the grain, Research into some quality characteristics of the grain, and Breeding.

Much attention was given to the problems inherent in the cultivation of two rice crops per year and to the development of varieties with a favourable response to nitrogen. This extensive study is not confined to mechanical culture of rice but also provides much valuable information on the more conventional methods of growing rice in the tropics.
