About This Special Issue
Agriculture ecosystems and environment is a vast and interesting field in the biological sciences. As the base of all biological sciences, agriculture and science practice of producing crops and livestock from the natural resources of the earth. The primary aim of agriculture is to cause the land to produce more abundantly and at the same time to protect it from deterioration and misuse. Agriculture Research will see to the speedy publication of high-quality papers that will assist in knowledge dissemination in this very important field, and bring researchers, scientists, lecturers and students alike to novel discoveries in the field of Agriculture across the world.

This special issue could serve as a panacea to bringing researchers in the field of microbiology close to practicable data as it relates to infectious diseases and their containment across the globe.

Review of manuscripts will be completed within one week after submission. Accepted manuscripts will be published as soon as authors pay the article processing fee.

    Abstract: Nitrogen (N) is the most important nutrient in maize production and its availability can affect the production potential of maize. Availability of nitrogen in soil largely varies with place and time. Models are some of practical methods used to evaluate and monitor availability and impact of nitrogen on maize production; APSIM is one of such models... Show More
