Use of PAM in Australian irrigated agriculture

Sivapalan, Siva (2002) Use of PAM in Australian irrigated agriculture. Australian Grain, 12(3), pp. 24-25.

Abstract

In many countries using polyacrylamides PAM as a soil conditioner has increased in recent years, particularly since the introduction of new generation, more cost effective products. Using these products on-farm has become more economically feasible because of their low application rates. They also have important environment, soil conservation and irrigation efficiency benefits.

This article summarises the important findings from a series of experiments conducted over a five year period.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
