Camel adaptation to its arid and semi-arid environment and its genetic make-up created some differences in its enzyme systems compared with other domestic animals. The camel is similar to ruminants in most of the diagnostic enzymes used to evaluate liver functions. However, some differences from...

Data about gene escape by seeds and volunteers were compiled for the first time in one study for several crops, i.e. wheat (Triticum aestivum), sugar beet (Beta vulgaris), oilseed rape/canola (Brassica napus) and maize (Zea mays). These species represent important genetically modified (GM) crops...

Growers have rapidly adopted transgenic herbicide-resistant (HR) crops, such as canola (Brassica napus L.), soyabean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.], maize (Zea mays L.) and cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.), across North America (USA and Canada) since their commercial introduction in the 1990s. With their...

Biological (bio)pesticides represent 2.4% of the global pesticide market, but this share is growing quickly and is projected to double by 2010. In contrast, the market for chemical pesticides is flat to declining as transgenic seeds have reduced sprays and governments have restricted or removed...

How the review was carried out is briefly described. The review looks mainly at the literature published since year 2000, but does not exclude earlier publications. The sustainability of practices to limit erosion must be assessed not only in terms of the soil resource and the wider environment but ...

Methyl bromide (MeBr) has been used for several decades for preplant (PRE) soil fumigation in high-value agricultural and horticultural crops because it can provide broad-spectrum control of insects, nematodes, pathogens, and weeds. However, MeBr has been identified as an ozone-depleting chemical...

Vegetable crop production in Florida, USA, relies on planting on polyethylene-mulched beds fumigated with methyl bromide plus chloropicrin (MBr+Pic) for soil-borne disease, nematode and weed control. However, MBr for agricultural use has been phased out because it is an ozonedepleting molecule. A...

Genetically modified herbicide-tolerant (GMHT) crops have the potential to affect farmland wildlife through the associated pesticide usage and management. All available GMHT crops are tolerant to either glyphosate or glufosinate-ammonium and the tolerance of the crops to these herbicides allows...
