    The last 25 years have witnessed a change in the priorities for the use of rural land in the United Kingdom. Whereas previously the focus was predominantly on agricultural production to achieve national self sufficiency, ...
  • Posthumus, Helena; Morris, Joe (Cranfield University, 2006-10)
    Climate change, perceived increase in flood incidence and changing priorities in the countryside have led to a growing concern that changes in land use in rural areas have increased the exposure of urban settlements to ...
  • Dunderdale, J. A. L.; Morris, J. (National Rivers Authority, 1996)
    In January 1989, the National Rivers Authority (NRA) Severn Trent Region commissioned Silsoe College to undertake a three year study to monitor and evaluate the impact of maintenance on six of its main river sites. The ...

  • Zmuda, A. D. (1992)
    This report demonstrates the potential use of optical remote sensing for monitoring the growth and development of winter sown wheat at the field scale. Spectral vegetation indices have been shown to be correlated to ...
  • Ziadat, Feras M. (2000-01)
    Land suitability analysis formed part of a land use planning exercise in a development project aimed at improving agricultural productivity in the transitional Badia region of Jordan. Soil observations and soil maps were ...
  • Terry, Leon Alexander (2002)
    Antifungal activity against Botrytis cinerea and Cladosporium cladosporioides declined with increasing fruit maturity as shown by thin layer chromatography (TLC) bioassay. Preformed antifungal activity was also demonstrated ...
  • Seymour, Ian Leslie (2006-01-19)
    In the UK, coppice willow is a potentially high yielding energy crop which if widely planted could have significant effects of hydrology. This is one reason why researchers are interested in developing reliable techniques ...
  • Saunders, Stuart P. (1997-10)
    This thesis reports on the development of a double inclined plane (DIP) transducer system based upon the principles of force reaction. This transducer had a design specification to measure the true mass of “free” flowing ...
  • Saunders, Christopher (2002-04-02)
    The aim of the project was to undertake experimental and theoretical research, to enable a better understanding of the design of modem mouldboard ploughs. Using this knowledge to optimise the performance in terms of ...
  • Santschi, Barbara (2006-03-06)
    Although the principles of relationship marketing are well understood, the role of pricing in building relationships between supply chain partners has not been researched. This study was designed to determine the role, ...
  • Sannier, Christophe (2000-01)
    The monitoring of vegetation resources is of vital importance for Southern African countries because of the dominance of agriculture in the economy. The use of remote sensing techniques in a national or local planning ...
  • Reeves, A. J. (2002-09-25)
    This research was undertaken for Bedfordshire County Council to investigate appropriate mechanisms for the promotion of sustainable rural business in Bedfordshire. The research seeks to provide insights into the future ...
  • Raoueche, Abdelkrim (1997-09)
    The growth of the world’s population and the consequent food shortage, requires the expansion of agriculture into arid zones which constitute about 60 % of the earth’s land area and are characterized by high levels of ...
  • Peccol, Elisabetta (1994-02)
    A GIS database for a study area (96 Km^) within the county of Bedfordshire (southern England) was established to provide statistical and mapped information on the distribution, extent and change through time of land-cover ...
  • Ozaki, Yuriko (1999-08)
    A conventional rain gun system is adversely affected by windy conditions. Therefore, the robotic self-travelling sprinkler (STS) system that controls the head and the water supply with relation to instant windy ...
  • O'Flaherty, S. M. (2002-09)
    Little is known about soil population dynamics: how microbial communities are affected by environmental stress; whether they respond adversely, or adjust to it; what the extent and duration of these adjustments might be; ...
