The USCIS has made it clear that “all cap-subject H1B petitions filed before April 3, 2017, for the FY 2018 cap will be rejected“.
This review examines the varied aspects of N in the soils and cropping systems as reflected by research at The International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA) in Syria in collaboration with other countries of the West Asia–North Africa region, especially in Morocco and other countries north and south of the Mediterranean.
The synthesis, therefore, reflects a broad overview of conditions that impinge an N nutrition of crops and the evolution of N research achievements since the advent of commercial fertilization over three decades ago.
With few exceptions, the soils of the Mediterranean region are low in organic matter and consequently in the reserves of total N, thus posing a limit of growing crops without fertilizer N or biological N fixation (BNF) through legumes.
As a result, a lottery was conducted last year to randomly select those among the pool lot.The Middle East region, embracing West Asia and North Africa (WANA), is characterized by a Mediterranean climate which dictates the agriculture of the region.Being one of the centers of origin of settled farming, where cereals and pulses originated along with sheep and goats, crop production is largely rainfed and is dependent on the limited rainfall (200–600 mm) during the cool moist season in late fall to late spring.The released numbers state that 199,000 petitions were submitted during the filing window between April 3rd and April 6th.Read more about the H1B 2018 results in our breaking news post.
