Phosphorus uptake of upland rice genotypes as affected by organic matter application in phosphorus deficient soils: a physiological and agronomic approach KU Leuven
Phosphorus (P) deficiency is a major yield-limiting factor for upland rice in regions where highly weathered, acid soils prevail. Such soils contain large concentrations of iron- and aluminum hydroxides that strongly immobilize phosphate (PO4). Breeding P-efficient rice genotypes may offer an option to overcome P deficiency. The P uptake capacity of a plant under low P availability, termed P acquisition efficiency (PAE), can be enhanced by ...
Reducing Lead Time and Increasing Flexibility in High Precision Manufacturing – Integrated Laser Hardening and High Accuracy Near Net Shape Finishing KU Leuven
The current ongoing evolution towards mass customization, resulting in the production of small lots or prototypes and single unique items, requires a different strategy compared to classic high volume manufacturing. In order to deal with the increasing product range and decreasing time to market, the flexibility of current manufacturing process chain needs to increase.
A conventional manufacturing process of a high quality component ...
