Skrócony opis:

The aim of this study is to show main differences between farming systems: conventional, integrated and organic. It means differences in the role of crop rotations, soil cultivation, fertilization and plant protection in these systems. As for soil cultivation and crop rotation the study will acquaint students with action and influence on soil of farm machinery used in the traditional and modified soil cultivation systems: plough, non-plough and no-till.

After completing this course student will be able to name differences between farming systems, choose proper crop-plants to crop rotation, according to their soil and climatic requirements.

Pełny opis:

The use of cultivation units for decrease of soil cultivation depth, its intensity and costs will be shown. During the course students will get the information about crops and correct methods of designing the crop rotations: selection of crop-plants and their cultivars according to climatic and soil requirements; types of crop rotations used in the different farming systems; growing of species and cultivar mixtures: cereal-cereal, cereal-leguminous and others; simplifications in crop-rotations. As for fertilization, different kinds of fertilizers will be presented: mineral, organic (manure, slurry) and natural (intercrops, straw). Terms and dosages of fertilizers in crop-rotations will be shown. As for plant protection methods, the target is to show the progress in technologies of pesticide production and their use, but also threats connected with applying large amounts of those chemicals in the new technologies of farming. Decision making in weed management in crop rotations: choice of proper herbicides, fixation of herbicide dose and terms of their use. Also non-chemical technologies of plant protection will be shown: mechanical, thermal, electric and biological, and their application in the different farming systems.
