Otherwise a is quadratic nonresidue modulo n and denoted as a [member of] [bar.
Hereafter referred to as nonresidue, Flemingia leaf, medic hay, and wheat straw, respectively.
At the 48-day harvest, application of medic hay, Flemingia leaf, and wheat straw in the presence of N alone produced increased plant top yield compared with the nonresidue control.
The main result of Graham and Ringrose [1990] asserts that for infinitely many primes p, the smallest quadratic nonresidue modulo p is at least [Omega](log p log log log p) (this result holds for primes p [equivalent] 3 (mod 4) as well, as follows from the remark at the end of Graham and Ringrose [1990]).
