The amount of timber sold from national forests has decreased significantly since the late 1980s, when 11 billion board feet of timber was offered for sale annually. However, the cost trends associated with the Forest Service's timber sales program have not decreased in a similar manner. This report provides info. for FY 1992 through 1997 on the: amount of timber offered for sale, sold, and harvested; outlays for timber sales by type of outlay; and estimated cost per thousand board feet harvested. Contains extensive details on the amount of timber sales outlays and timber volumes by forest and

Morels are prized edible mushrooms that fruit, sometimes prolifically, in many forest types throughout western North America. They are collected for personal consumption & commercially harvested as valuable special (non-timber) forest products. Large gaps remain, however, in our knowledge about their taxonomy, biology, ecology, cultivation, safety, & how to manage forests & harvesting activities to conserve morel populations & ensure sustainable crops. This publication provides forest managers, policymakers, mycologists, & mushroom harvesters with a synthesis of current knowledge regarding the

"The author distinguishes between ocean fish farming and ocean ranching. The distinguishing characteristic of ocean ranching is that the released species are unassisted once released into the ocean. Ocean ranching in turn is classified as pure ocean ranching (animals intended to be harvested by the entity that released them) and stock enhancement ocean ranching"--P. [4] of cover.

The great challenge for the future will be the task of increasing food production with less water, particularly in countries with limited water and land resources. In the context of improving water productivity, there is a growing interest in "deficit irrigation" - an irrigation practice whereby water supply is reduced below maximum levels and mild stress is allowed with minimal effects on yield. This publication presents a range of studies, carried out for several crops and under different ecological conditions, showing the various options and practices of deficit irrigation and the impacts o

This February 2008 assessment broadly anticipates what can be expected when the opium poppy seedlings bloom in Afghanistan this spring. Field visits and interviews with village leaders indicate that cultivation levels will be broadly similar to, perhaps slightly lower than, last yearżs record harvest. But the total amount of opium being harvested remains shockingly high. Contents: general findings; number of villages growing opium poppy; cash advances received for opium poppy cultivation; families involved in opium cultivation; agricultural assistance; field security; eradication; prices; can
