    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.

The effects on grain production of cultivar characteristics, nitrogen supply and some climatic factors were studied in field trials and under controlled environmental conditions. A rise in temperature considerably increased the rate of grain growth but shortened its duration, whilst the positive effect of light intensity on the grain yield was greater at high temperatures.

Additional nitrogen raised post-floral photosynthesis. The nitrogen assimilation by the grains was increased by warmth, resulting in a higher nitrogen concentration of the grains and in earlier senescence of the leaves. Differences between a semi-dwarf cultivar and a standard were mainly expressed in the dry matter distribution before and after anthesis and so in a higher harvest-index.
