Derived from the popular, Encyclopedia of Reagents for natural Synthesis (EROS), the similar editors have created a brand new instruction manual which makes a speciality of chiral reagents utilized in uneven synthesis and is designed for the chemist on the bench. This new guide follows an analogous structure because the Encyclopedia, together with an advent and an alphabetical association of the reagents.

Livestock and crop husbandry, between the species kept on a farm or between the animals of a herd), but also between a farm and its ecological, economic or social environment. ‘Care’ also paraphrases the special responsibility that farmers, transporters and processors have towards domestic animals. Unlike animal welfare, health concepts for organic herds are less developed and are considered more challenging to implement. Because diseases cause livestock to suffer and become weak, interventions with conventional allopathic drugs are not generally banned in most standards, including those of the EU.

Similarly, for carbohydrates in the diet, changes in the carbohydrate composition of foodstuffs per se are unlikely to result in a pattern of carbohydrate consumption which could be considered more healthful; increasing the proportion of energy derived from carbohydrates will be achieved through overall increased consumption of carbohydrate-rich foods and reduction in fat intake. Current targets for a reduction in the total fat content of the diet are accompanied by recommendations to reduce the proportion of saturated fats in the diet in favour of unsaturated forms.

Nitrogen is the only nutrient element which can be supplied in sufficient quantities on each farm, either via manure and organic matter recycling approaches or by introducing grain legumes, legume-rich leys for fodder production and cover crops into arable and horticultural rotations. , 2003) are grown to catch available nitrogen in the soil in order to prevent nitrogen leaching losses and improve the nutrition of the succeeding main crops. Most frequently sown cover crops in central and northern Europe are crucifers (fodder radish, white mustard), monocots (ryegrasses, winter rye, oats) and legumes (hairy vetch, red, white, sweet and crimson clover, faba bean, field pea and alfalfa).
