Straw is among the most important by-products of the agricultural industry. It is estimated that about 750 million tonnes (dry matter) are produced on a world-wide basis. Of this, a considerable proportion is surplus to the requirements on the farm. This has to be disposed of or utilized, processes in which straw decay plays an important part. This collection of papers and discussions will make interesting and valuable reading for students and teachers of agriculture, biochemistry, microbiology and animal nutrition; Agricultural Research Institutes and Ministries of Agriculture; and industrial concerns involved in straw utilization projects and animal nutrition. 337pp. Index. Size: 8vo Medium (8" x 5½" approx.) Dust wrapper in protective, removable sleeve.
