This was a study carried out to assess the effectiveness of weed control using ox-drawn weeders and hand weeding. Trials were conducted in farmer's fields during the first and second rains of.

Meanwhile, serious threats have emerged to the model of trade-led growth. New technologies could draw production closer to the consumer and reduce the demand for labor. And conflicts among large countries could lead to a retrenchment or a segmentation of GVCs.

This book examines whether there is still a path to development through GVCs and trade. Due to the character of this important work by Canadian historian Gerald Therrien as continuation of the line of discoveries published in How the Nation Was Won (), the editors of the Canadian Patriot recommends that readers of the following series become familiar with the thesis laid out by Graham Lowry in the aforementioned book in order to take the most out of the scholarly work.

Agricultural practices such as the use of irrigation during rice cultivation, the use of ponds for fish farming and the storage of water in tanks for livestock provide suitable breeding grounds for anthropophylic by: The seedbed was prepared using oxen; seed was then dribbled into a furrow made by an ox-drawn implement and covered using a light oxdrawn harrow.
