    The subtropics are geographic and climate zones located roughly between the tropics at latitude ° (the Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn) and temperate zones (normally referring to latitudes 35–°) north and south of the Equator. Subtropical climates are often characterized by hot summers and mild winters with infrequent frost. Field Crops Research is an international journal publishing scientific articles on: √ experimental and modelling research at field, farm and landscape levels on temperate and tropical crops and cropping systems, with a focus on crop ecology and physiology, agronomy.

    The current contribution of agriculture to deforestation varies by region, with industrial agriculture being responsible for 30% of deforestation in Africa and Asia, but close to 70% in Latin America. The most significant agricultural drivers of deforestation include soy, palm oil, and cattle ranching. According to a survey conducted in , the four leading international companies installed of the anaerobic wastewater treatment plants in tropical and subtropical regions. 77 plants were installed in Brazil, followed by India (75), China (43), Mexico (22), Philippines (22), Taiwan (21), and Thailand (14).

Abstract. In warm subtropical regions of the world, stonefruit production has rapidly increased during the past 10 years due to the ready availability of high-quality low-chill stonefruit germplasm (Sharpe et al., ; Sherman, et al.,; Sherman,[See Chapter 8] (Table 1).Within the tropics and subtropics, suitable agroclimatological conditions exist within many Cited by: Subtropical Agriculture and Environments latest Journals Volume 74th ANNUAL MEETING of the Subtropical Agriculture and Environments Society.

In summer, these regions are largely under the influence of moist, maritime airflow from the western side of the subtropical anticyclonic cells over low-latitude ocean waters. Temperatures are high; the warmest months generally average about 27 °C (81 °F), with mean daily maxima from 30 °C to 38 °C (86 °F to °F) and warm, oppressive nights.
