COVER CROPS AND STRAW MANAGEMENT ON YIELD COMPONENTS OF CRAMBE
(Univ Federal Uberlandia, 2015-09-01)
The objective of this study was to evaluate the dry matter (DM) yield and nutrient accumulation in cover crops and the effect of these, as well as mechanical management of crop residues on growth and grain yield of crambe ...
Straw collecting behaviour by pacas (Agouti paca) in captivity
(Elsevier B.V., 2006-05-01)
Agouti paca is both considered as a species vulnerable to extinction and recognised with the potential for domestication. In spite of this, its behaviour is poorly documented and captive breeding is mainly based on trial ...
Assessment Of Greener Cement By Employing Thermally Treated Sugarcane Straw Ashes
(Elsevier Sci LtdOxford, 2017)
Sustainable weed management on ornamental beds
The weed presence on ornamental beds is a main aspect that interferes with the garden maintenance, especially in tropical countries, as it causes an unpleasant effect and competes with the ornamentals. The use of herbicides ...
Ratio of CO2 and O-2 as index for categorising soil biological activity in sugarcane areas under contrasting straw management regimes
(Csiro Publishing, 2018-01-01)
This study was developed in a sugarcane area under contrasting management regimes defined by mechanical green harvesting (GH) and burning harvesting (BH) to test the hypotheses that the ratio of carbon dioxide (CO2) and ...
Influência da cobertura de aveia-preta e milheto sobre comunidade de plantas daninhas e produção de soja
The success in weed control by using straw depends on the management time, straw quality and quantity. The objective of this research was to evaluate the suppressor effect of black-oats and millet straw cover on the incidence ...
Short-term CO2-C emissions from soil prior to sugarcane (Saccharum spp.) replanting in southern Brazil
New management strategies should be identified to increase the potential of bioenergy crops to minimize climate change. This study quantified the impact of sugarcane (Saccharum spp.) harvest systems, straw and soil management ...
Comparison Between Ground Ant (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) Communities Foraging in the Straw Mulch of Sugarcane Crops and in the Leaf Litter of Neighboring Forests
(Oxford Univ Press Inc, 2017-02-01)
In many sugarcane plantations in Brazil, the straw is left on the soil after harvesting, and vinasse, a by- product of the production of sugar and ethanol, is used for fertigation. Our goal was to compare ant community ...
Effect of potassium on nutritional status and productivity of peanuts in succession with sugarcane
(Soc Chilena Ciencia Suelo, 2015-01-01)
Potassium contained in sugarcane straw quickly returns to the soil in a form readily available to crops. Thus, the objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of potassium on the nutritional status and grain yield ...
Short-term effects of crop rotations on soil chemical properties under no-tillage condition
The use of crop rotation can provide sustainability for an agricultural production system by improving soil fertility and increasing nutrient use efficiency. Short-term changes in soil chemical properties were studied for ...
