This allowed planned building. Also, the rivers allowed the Indus people to create different input and output water systems, for plumbing, storage, and bathing uses because bathing also was a part of their sanitary society. This new technology was way too advanced, for their age, even though they were being very peaceful, and had no wars in their rise. The Indus civilization 's land had a natural boundary as well, which was the Himalayan mountains and the Hindu Kush. This had prevented an attack from the north and northeastern side.
They also had similarities that had positive and negative impacts upon the empires. One of the differences the two empires had where the locations of the empires. The location of the Arab Empire crossed over Africa, the Mediterranean, and Asia. The Hittite Empire was located on the country Turkey which was bordered by the Black Sea, Mediterranean, and the Aegean Sea. The Arab empire had an advantage from their location because they where the connection between three major places at the time.
This can be interpreted so that with increasing drought stress, plants increase the length of roots, thus root weight is also increased. The highest root fresh weight observed in F&C in normal irrigation. (Manjunath et al., 1983) stated that inoculation with mycorrhizal fungi increases the shoot dry weight, roots and most morphological traits of the plant. Mycorrhizal fungi have a significant effect on uptake of nitrogen and phosphorus for plant growth and seedlings height. On the other hand, Mycorrhizal symbiosis delayed the leaf water potential drop under drought stress, also Mycorrhizal plants are much faster than non-mycorrhizal plants in absorbing the water and leaf water potential to reach balance (Wu et al., 2005).
A majority of Babylonian life revolved around agriculture because its geographic location, between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers, gave them a lot of fertile land. The key to wealth in the Babylonian Empire was through trade. Merchants were supported and great trading centers were built in the empire, so that the king would be able to gain wealth by taxing the foreign merchants (Bible History). Babylonians greatly succeeded in trade because of their agricultural surplus (Albright, Paragraph 23). They had more produce and access to goods that were scarce in other areas around them, so they had an advantage in trade.
British colonization was more tactical than that of other colonial rule. The key agenda of the British was to get maximum economic benefits from this region. In the beginning of 17th century, East India Company was granted permission by the Mughal ruler Jahangir to commence its business activities in India. This organization was supposed to do business and earn profits by trade via sea but soon they tried to become a monopoly and as they were fully armed therefore managed to draw its means from land revenues as well. The British officers were employed in major business hubs of India and were given excellent and attractive employment opportunities with handful of bonuses from the company’s profit, land revenues and taxes.
people relied on rivers and ponds for drinking and bathing. However, rivers were much better than lakes or ponds because running water often was much cleaner than any stagnant water so the townspeople were less likely to get sick from drinking the water. The river also helped the soil near and around the village to become very fertile and perfect for growing crops in. Apart from the river, the city was also surrounded by seven hills which
13. What role did the River Valley play in the rise of cities? The River Valley was full of fertile land because of the water leaving rich nutrients in the soil when it flooded so it allowed agriculture to flourish there. Also, in the Nile River Valley the river flooded at the same time every year, so they could predict when they needed to clear everything out and be done harvesting, so it minimized the damage the floods created. So, with a better reliable way of producing agriculture, cities began popping up.
Mesoamerican farmers learned diverse methods that helped the crops improve. The improvement in nutrients led the people to focus on the agriculture. Mesoamericans had large amounts of crops; therefore, they traded with groups that did not farm. The trade helped Mesoamericans gain wealth and power between the different groups. The Olmecs and other groups had greater power than smaller societies, and these powers resulted in inequality among the
Advantage and Disadvantage of Fertilisers and Solutions: (Fertilisers: Advantage- It can be made much faster unlike natural fertilisers. The NPK content of a chemical fertiliser is much more than natural fertiliser. If the NPK content of soil is according to the crop then the yield will be very good. Disadvantage- Excessive use can increase the acidity of the soil. Some fertilisers contain filers other than NPK that can harm the human body
Also, a standardised currency system was put in place by the British to help boost economic growth for those states they colonised. This can be seen from different states of Malaya having different currencies such as seashells, or cattle trading and when British came they established a unified currency, the straits dollar, to allow a diverse trade for all states. This means that at that point in time, traders could not bring currencies into other states, and thus the value of money differed through the states.When the British left, they left behind infrastructure such as roads, bridges, harbours and railways for the states they colonised. These roads and bridges were used by the British to connect the tin mines and rubber plantation. One example is the first railway line in Malaya which connected Taping in Perak to Port Weld.
