2/10). The mulched plots were treated on the surface with 7-5 tons of oat straw per hectare; the unmulched plots had the same amount of oat straw ploughed under. Prevention of penetration of low temperatures in a cold season is well known. It is often overlooked that application of mulch in one season also damps the long-term fluctuation in other seasons. If this is not desired, cultivation measures must be taken, such as removal of the mulch, or promotion of its decomposition. The most radical measures are glasshouses and stables, which reduce the influence of outdoor air temperatures on those prevailing indoors.

Soil profiles; crops, crop rotation, cultivation periods; size of plots; soil moisture characteristics; effective root depths; depth to water-table, especially during growing season. Dew In hydrology and in irrigation practices it is customary to treat dew in the same way as precipitation and to consider it as a positive term in the water balance. In reality the phenomenon is much more complex. Dew must be well distinguished from interception of water droplets from fog, which indeed should be classified as precipitation.
