The very dense plantations in which fiber crops
are grown raises the humidity around the stalks and increases infections by fungal diseases.
For the most part, this industry is based on crop residues rather than on fiber obtained from dedicated crops; growing needs for food worldwide are likely to dictate a continued focus on residues rather than on annual fiber crops
At the close of the 20th century, reminiscent of how new hemp fiber applications resurrected the fiber crop
mostly in Europe (as discussed in the "Evolution of Stem Fiber Production Under Domestication" section), a similar development of oilseed products, primarily in Canada, witnessed the founding of an expanding hempseed industry.
A crucial input is expected SRWC fiber crop
yields per unit area.
As of January 30, the DA said farmers planting fiber crops
, particularly abaca, in Albay have registered production losses amounting to P478,000 due to the eruption of Mayon Volcano.
Hemp plants can reach heights of 12 feet, and require less water, herbicides and pesticides than other fiber crops
He said 55 Pakistani students were studying in FAFU, out of them 8 were from the UAF, adding FAFU had been leading the country in researches in sugarcane, bee, fiber crops
, bio pesticide and cedar wood fields.
Secondly, additional savings from conservation tillage (need for less or no ploughing facilitated by herbicide tolerant biotech crops) for biotech food, feed and fiber crops
, led to an additional soil carbon sequestration equivalent in 2013 to 25.
Part 4 of fermented feed and fiber crops
Increased access to EU markets is favorable for Filipino exporters of seaweeds, other fiber crops
, tobacco leaf, forestry, ornamental plants, raw coffee, abaca, and cocoa, the report said.
They consider fiber crops
, fruits, beverage-deriving plants, grasses and seeds, oil crops, ornamentals, pharmacological plants, roots and tubers, spices, trees and shrubs, vegetables and more.
This is the most complete file of information in this country, if not the world, on fiber crops
of the world.
