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.
For a scheme of land improvement, an agro-economic survey was carried out in the Hilla-Diwaniya area in Iraq during 1958-9. After presenting general economic setting, the methods of obtaining the farm data were discussed. A classification was given of the areas studied. The economic data were compiled and analysed under the following main headings: population, land use and cropping pattern (including cultivation practices), livestock production, tenancy conditions, the farming unit, farmer's income, dietary habits and food intake.Some general relations in subsistence farming were tested for the agriculture of the Hilla-Diwaniya area. By regression analysis the relation was analysed between farm size and labour force, between yield of barley and farm size, net income and farm size and between gross and net income and labour force.
