Abstract: Golden apple snail, (Pomacea canaliculata) has become a major constraint to the profitability of rice (Oryza sativa L.) farming by damaging rice seedlings during paddy growth. Chemical compounds such as saponin, alkaloid and flavanoid have been found in pickerel weed (Monochoria vaginalis), tea leaves, neem and their usage caused the mortality of Pomacea canaliculata.

Abstract: Tall wheatgrass (Thinopyrum ponticum previously Agropyron elongatum) is the most disseminated halophyte species cultivated for forage on hydro-halomorphic soils in the world. In Argentina, it is used for direct pasturing, hay and silage. The traditional cultivation area comprises poorly drained soils of the Pampean prairie, particularly the Salado river basin and the Semiarid Pampean Region.

Abstract: Exclusively aerobic and integrated anaerobic with post-aerobic treatments of bio-waste generated in a given waste management area were compared with respect to the quality of the final compost. Pilot-scale apparatuses were used for reproducing static aerated pile composting and solid anaerobic digestion batch (SADB) for the anaerobic pre-treatment. Compost was assessed according to the organic carbon content and humic and fulvic acid concentrations.
