Megersa Tadesse Substitution rate of sweet potato vines for concentrate mix on goat

The exploitation of traditional crops, which often are grown with low inputs, and are largely adapted to the climatic conditions of the developing countries, would be a step towards better resource utilization. Available literature from research on sweet potato focused more on tuber yields with little or no attention paid to foliage yield and quality. Unfortunately, Information about feeding value, extent and evolution of feeding practices of vine as a feed source is not much known due to lack of knowledge about the crop, and its use for animal feed. Furthermore, information on supplementation of livestock diets with sweet potato vines in Ethiopia is not sufficient. Therefore, the current study was designed to evaluate the effect of substituting sweet potato vines with concentrate mix at increasing levels on feed intake, growth performance and carcass traits of Sidama goats.

Daniel Hailegiorgis Genetic Variability of Bread Wheat Genotypes

Grain production is a complex phenomenon, entailing several contributing factors. These factors influence grain production both directly and indirectly and the breeder is naturally interested in investigating the extent and type of association of such traits. Towards a clear understanding of the type of association, correlation, path and divergence analysis are logical steps. Studies like heritability estimates could also be helpful to know the performance of parents in hybrids. Similarly, Knowledge on the extent and the pattern of genetic variability present in a population is essential for further improvement of any crop. At present, there is lack of detailed information pertaining to these aspects. Therefore, this book intends to show comprehensive logical steps that a plant scientist should follow to reach a concrete conclusion on the variability and genetic relation of different characters taking an experiment conducted in bread wheat as an example. The book is important for plant breeders and other plant scientists interested in learning more about the ways of crop improvement.

Florian Lobmaier System-Level Calibration for Memories under Process Variability Impact

In microelectronics technology scaling is performed in order to im­prove the performance and cost of embedded systems. Scaling to the minimum feature sizes below 100 nm, however, causes a host of problems. One of the most important problems is process variability which is a variation of device parameters after fabrication. Since process variability increases by downscaling the silicon integration technology minimum geometry transistors are heavily affected. Therefore the focus of this book are small on-chip memories in the lowest layer of a memory hierarchy. Process variability severely im­pacts the performance and the energy consumption of memory organizations. RTL simulations suggest that process variability slows down the memories and makes them consume more energy in most cases. This degrades the parametric- or system-yield after fabrication. To improve on the current standard corner-point design techniques, which produce huge overheads in energy and delay, IMEC introduces configurable memories.This book introduces a controller which is able to put such memories in a state were all requirements are met by minimum energy con­sumption.

Rathore R.K. Inheritance of yield and related components in wheat

Wheat encounters severe salt problems in comparison to rainy season crops because of high salt concentration which is built up in the root zone owing to high crop transpiration or by the use of saline water which adversely affects the growth of plant due to osmotic effects, ionic toxicity, nutritional imbalances and physico-chemical degradation of soil. Although reclamation is a solution to this problem but scarcity of irrigation water, financial constraints and lack of drainage facility hampers its implementation. In such an eventuality, breeding for salinity tolerance is the only admirable approach. Available information on genetic architecture of yield and it's contributing characters of bread wheat for salinity conditions is very less; thus it is necessary to study the genetics for yield and related characteristics and their inheritance under salinity conditions. The ensuing investigation were undertaken to analyse three crosses of wheat including salinity tolerant parents under saline and normal environments with the relevant objectives like estimation of the magnitude of gene effects for yield and its contributing characters in three crosses of wheat for improving tolerance.

Norvie L. Manigbas, Teodoro C. Mendoza MORPHO-PHYSIOLOGICAL CHARACTERS ASSOCIATED WITH GXE IN SUGARCANE

The concept of breeding cultivars with wide adaptation is itself well adapted by researchers. In fact, there are two broad categories of breeding strategies in crops: broad adaptation and location-specific adaptation. Considering the complexity of the growing environments in a country and the need to maximize yield, the strategy should be directed toward developing varieties with location-specific adaptation. Reliance on a few varieties renders crops growing highly vulnerable to pest and disease outbreaks. Varietal interactions depend on the environments, but these interactions involve the individual genotype's physiological and genetic traits. In order to identify physiological traits related with environmental factors, there is a need for an effective statistical procedure. Additive main effects and multiplicative interaction (AMMI) analysis is ideal for this task. An AMMI statistical analysis is introduced as a tool to separate and quantify the GxE associated with yield and physiological components. This technique uses better statistical analysis for GxE partition and the bi-plot graphs useful in analyzing which genotype "wins" in an environment.

Bishwajit Prasad Spectral Reflectance Indices in Wheat Breeding

Complementing breeding effort by deploying alternative methods of identifying higher yielding genotypes in a plant breeding program is important for obtaining greater genetic gains. Spectral reflectance indices (SRI) are one of the several indirect selection tools that have been reported to be associated with many physiological processes of different crop species. The value of SRI as a plant breeding tool for yield improvement has not been well established. Therefore, this book provides a comprehensive analysis of the potential use of SRI as a plant breeding tool for yield improvement using breeding populations and released cultivars of wheat. Association between grain yield and SRI, biomass and SRI, heritability of the SRI and yield, response to selection and correlated response, relative selection efficiency of the SRI, and efficiency in selecting the higher yielding genotypes by the SRI are discussed. The findings should help wheat breeders to utilize SRI as an indirect selection tool for yield improvement.

Charitopoulos Dimitrios Foivos, Corcoran Rhiannon Social Cognition and Personality

Evidence exists showing Theory of Mind (ToM) impairments in psychoses; however the evidence within the psychoses spectra is inconclusive. Therefore this study aimed to explore ToM ability in schizotypal and hypomanic personalities within a non-clinical population. The results supported the notion of a phenotypal continuum where ToM impairment seemed to be evident even in non-clinical populations for hypomanic personality traits; however schizotypal traits were unaffected. The fact that personality traits were highly associated was discussed in terms of a symptom-specific rather than a diagnosis-specific approach. Particular aspects of ToM are suggested to be related to specific personality types and a symptom-specific intervention is proposed.

In North America, concepts of Historical Range of Variability are being employed in land-management planning for properties of private organizations and multiple government agencies. The National Park Service, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Forest Service, and The Nature Conservancy all include elements of historical ecology in their planning processes. Similar approaches are part of land management and conservation in Europe and Australia. Each of these user groups must struggle with the added complication of rapid climate change, rapid land-use change, and technical issues in order to employ historical ecology effectively. Historical Environmental Variation in Conservation and Natural Resource Management explores the utility of historical ecology in a management and conservation context and the development of concepts related to understanding future ranges of variability. It provides guidance and insights to all those entrusted with managing and conserving natural resources: land-use planners, ecologists, fire scientists, natural resource policy makers, conservation biologists, refuge and preserve managers, and field practitioners. The book will be particularly timely as science-based management is once again emphasized in United States federal land management and as an understanding of the potential effects of climate change becomes more widespread among resource managers.

Biswas Arnab, Singh Baldeo, Kumari Gunja Impact of Contract Farming in West Bengal, India

Contract farming is defined as a system for the production and supply of agricultural or horticultural produce under forward contracts between producers/suppliers and buyers. Contract farming offers the advantage of reduced capital investment, reduced risk of price fluctuation, guaranteed returns and provision of technical assistance to the farmers. The study was purposively conducted in Burdwan district of West Bengal, India, as the state is the second highest producer of potato in the country. Contract farming helped the farmers to diversify their farm, increased the employment opportunity and area under potato. It also helped the farmers to get more net benefit from potato. After engaging in contract farming the farmers used various inputs for potato cultivation more judiciously but not in higher quantity than the non contract farmers. There was not any major environmental disadvantage of potato contract farming except the emergence of new pest and diseases of potato. The knowledge level of the contract farmers about potato production technology and the disease management practices of potato were significantly higher than the non contract farmers..........

Yemisrach Tadesse, Bizuayehu Tesfaye (PhD) Response of Taro to Applied Nitrogen and Potassium Fertilizer Levels

Taro (Colocasia esculenta L.) is one of the major staple root crops in different countries of the world.However, the yield potential is seldom realized, and among the yield limiting factors, soil fertility is one of the major factor affecting the yield of the crop. Thus, this book gives research result on 'Response Taro to Applied N and K Fertilizer Levels. Two types of fertilizers at different levels, i.e. K (0, 75, 150 and 225 kg ha-1) and N (0, 50, 100, 150 and 200 kg ha-1), were combined in factorial for the experimental study. The response of taro to N and K levels was assessed by examining growth and yield parameters. The result revealed that K had no significant effect on the growth and yield of taro, except for the corm dry weight. But N had significantly affected both the growth and yield of taro. The maximum yield (60.96 t ha-1) was obtained by application of 150 kg N ha-1. Economic analysis showed that the highest net benefit was obtained in treatment combination of 75 kg K ha-1 with 150 kg N ha-1. However, the marginal rate of return analysis was optimum when 100 kg N ha-1 was applied. Thus, 100 kg N ha-1 was found optimum for taro production based on this experiment.

The worsening food crisis and the consequent wide spread prevalence of malnutrition in developing and underdeveloped countries have resulted in high mortality and morbidity rates, especially among infants and children in low-income groups (Enujiugba and Akanbi, 2005). The reliance on starchy roots and tubers and protein deficient cereals as main staples results in consumption of non-nutritious foods. The insufficient availability of nutrient rich diets and the high cost of the available ones have prompted an intense research into harnessing the potentials of the lesser known and underutilized crops, which are potentially valuable for human and animal foods to maintain a balance between population and agricultural productivity, particularly the tropical and subtropical areas of the world.This book contains research work done on Tigernut to determine the Nutritive composition and the biochemical effects of the tuber. The findings from the research would shed some light on the nutritional qualities of the tuber and advice on the cultivation and consumption of the tuber.

Sharma Anil, Mali Nami chand Genetic Variability in M5 Generation in Isabgol (Plantago ovata Forsk)

Isabgol belongs to the family Plantaginaceae and genus Plantago with chromosome number 2n=8)). The seed husk of this plant is commonly called Psyllium . The seed husk has the property of absorbing and retaining water which accounts for its utility in checking constipation, diarrhea and intestinal irritation. It is diuretic, alleviates kidney and bladder complaints, gonorrhea, arthritis and hemorrhoids .There is an ample scope to increase the productivity of isabgol through genetic improvement. The genetic improvement is primarily depends upon the nature and magnitude of variability in plant characters, overall genetic diversity among genotypes and association between characters. The limited existing genetic variability is major bottleneck for the improvement of the isabgol .Mutation breeding is ultimate source of variation. It provides raw material upon which other factor of evaluation act and therefore all the new species ultimately arises from the mutation.

David Reuben, Nnamani Chibuike Ngene Modelling Exchange Rate Volatility

Exchange rates and other kinds of traded financial functions such as interest rates, stock prices are prone to constant variability. This variability influences the flow of goods, services, and capital in a country, and exerts strong pressure on the balance of payments, inflation and other macroeconomic variables. Particularly, the exchange rate of Naira in relation to many other currencies of the world fluctuate such that their returns over different periods of time are significantly volatile and difficult to forecast. This problem of exchange rate variability have become too disturbing, thus the need to model this fluctuation. The empirical evidence provided in this study uses ARCH and GARCH models for modelling this variability in rate as they are found to capture the "stylised facts" of financial returns such as: leptokurtosis, volatility clustering, intermittency, fat tails, leverage effect etc. As such, this book comes handy as it could be employed in assessing the condition of the financial markets for making decisions by investors, speculators, investment managers and financial regulators, both in a developed and a developing economy.

Kumarimanumuthuveeral D., Elavazhagan D. Yield Maximization in Groundnut Through Lignite Fly Ash Application

The present work was aimed to evaluate the effects of graded levels of lignite flyash (LFA) application in groundnut. The results of the field experiment revealed that among the various graded levels of LFA evaluated, the treatment combined application of LFA @ 10 t ha-1 + pressmud @ 12 5 t ha-1 + RDF (T7) was highly suitable in terms of their ideal physico-chemical characteristics, the magnitude of nutrient contents and their availability to groundnut and it was found to improve the growth, yield attributes, pod and haulm yield and oil content of groundnut for both the seasons. Addition of LFA @ 10 t ha-1 + Pressmud @ 12.5 t ha-1 + RDF recorded the highest plant height of 30.60, 40.20 and 51.60 cm at 30, 60 and at harvest during Rabi and it was significantly superior to that of addition of LFA @ 5 t ha-1 + Pressmud @ 12.5 t ha-1 + RDF. The same trend was followed in summer also. Combined application of LFA with pressmud or FYM greatly influenced the yield and yield parameters for Rabi and summer seasons rather than sole application of LFA in groundnut.

Tamene Bayisa Review on Effect of Feeding Dairy Cow with Protected Fat and Protein on milk Yield and its Composition

Seminar paper from the year 2017 in the subject Veterinary medicine, Jimma University College of Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine, language: English, abstract: Objective of this review is focus on effect of feeding protected fat and protected protein on milk yield and its composition and how these nutrients are protected. Many researchers in this review investigate that the responses are highly dependent on the type of fat and protein supplement and the stage of lactation. A higher milk response was observed with saturated than with unsaturated fat supplements. Diet with added fat increase milk production compared with a control diet without added fat in cows. Feeding of bypass fat resulted in significant increase in milk yield and Fat Corrected Milk yield particularly in early lactation. The source of Protected fat are (origin (animal, plant, processed or whole oilseeds, calcium salts) and Cereal Grains such as corn, wheat, Barly, oil seeds, sun flower, cotton seed, soybeans and canola). The supplementation of protected protein in the diets of lactating animals increases the milk yield due to proportionate increase in the supply of amino acids to the host postruminally Milk yield in cows fed protected methionine for the whole experimental period was numerically higher than in cows of the other groups. However, the difference was not statistically significant .At the centeral high land of Ethiopia the Treatment of shredded wheat and barley straw with urea, molasses, salt a...

Legal Aspects of the EU Association Agreements with Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine in the Context of the EU Eastern Partnership Initiative

The present publication is probably the first comparative analysis of the new Association Agreements between the European Union, its Member States and Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine from a legal perspective. It mainly includes contributions by young scholars from Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine, which were prepared in a research project at the University of Kiel in 2014/2015.The three Association Agreements share many similarities, e. g. in the DCFTA parts of the agreements, but there are also significant differences, e. g. in the size of the agreements and in many details. Some provisions are also related to WTO rules, others to EU law. Parallels may also be seen with other EU trade agreements, such as CETA and TTIP. For a correct interpretation and application of the three Association Agreements a comparative view is helpful in order to avoid divergences in interpretation, but also in order to understand the existing specifics of each Agreement.Although the book is written from a legal perspective it is hoped to be useful for any reader interested in international trade and in political cooperation between the EU and its Eastern neighbours.

S Muhammad Suhail, M Subhan Qureshi Genetic Evaluation of Dairy Buffaloes

Buffalo contributes 38.0 % milk in Asia. A total of 5033 records were utilized to investigate breeding efficiency (BE) and its various contributors. Effect of herd, period, season of calving, birth weight (BW), age at puberty (AAP), lactation yield (LY) and calving interval (CI) were analyzed. The effect of year and season of calving, lactation yield, calving interval, age at first calving and birth weight was found significant (P<0.001), while that of herd was non significant. BE correlated positively with BW and LY and negatively with AAP, AFC and CI. It was concluded that birth weight was the most significant contributor. In the succeeding study herd, sire nested into herd and parity had a significant effect on lactation yield, while the effects of year, season of calving, year x season and age at puberty x season was found non significant. It was suggested that the milk production ability of dairy buffaloes was improved by increasing birth weight and an increasing maturity. The last study suggested that heritability estimates of first lactation economic traits provided a better tool for selective breeding.

Wen Cheng Individual Differences and Cognitive Dissonance

"Cognitive dissonance" is a frequent occurrence in our daily life. However, less than 1% of the studies of cognitive dissonance have also investigated individuals' personality traits. Individual differences might be quite important in moderating the strength of dissonance effects. Although cognitive dissonance is a common occurrence in most people's everyday life, the magnitude of the dissonance they experience may nonetheless differ from one person to another. The purpose of the study in this book is to investigate the relationships between personality traits and cognitive dissonance in a counter-attitudinal advocacy paradigm, with a special focus on the traits of openness to experience and strength of sense of self, and to examine whether the relationships in a novel on-line survey study form were different from the relationships in the standard laboratory setting.

Carren Strock Potatoes with Appeal. 105 Mouth-Watering Recipes

My interest in potato recipes began quite innocently while driving down a country road. As I passed a farm stand, a sign reading, “50 pound of potatoes, only three dollars,” caught my eye.Not able to resist a bargain, I stopped. “I’d like to buy that bag of potatoes,” I said.“Buy that one and I’ll throw in the other two I have left,” the manager said.I arrived home with 150 pounds of potatoes. My family thought I was crazy. Determined to prove them wrong, I sent my kids up and down the street handing out bagfuls, until our neighbors said, “enough, we can’t use any more.” I spent the rest of the day making batches of my standards: potato pancakes, potato pudding, and potato soup. And I hadn’t put a dent in the mounds of potatoes that covered my counters. So I began calling friends and family members for their potato recipes. Word spread. Recipes flew my way, along with all kinds of information about the potato.I learned that during the second century A.D., the Spanish conquistadores found the potato high in the Andes. They had many uses for this strange vegetable, but they had no idea that their discovery would be more valuable than Inca gold. One of the major vegetable crops in the world today, the potato serves us well as a staple for the needy or a delicacy for the gourmet.Potatoes With Appeal is the result of my “potato encounter.”From selecting and storing potatoes to using them in soups, salads, casseroles, main dishes, side dishes, and sweet desserts, this recipe book h...

Njeru Peterson, Hjalten Joakim, K. The Effect of Push-Pull Management and Fertilization in Central Kenya

The high population pressure in central Kenya has lead to continuous cultivation with minimal application of nutrient, resulting in nutrient depletion. A study was conducted to determine the effect of 'Push-pull' (intercropping maize with Desmodium and Napier grass) strategy management and nitrogen application on maize grain yield and soil fertility on smallholder farmer's fields in three districts of central Kenya highlands. The experiment design was a split plot design with two factors ('Push-pull' vs monoculture and manure (5 t/ha) only vs manure and fertilizer (40 kg/ha) replicated four times.I found an increase in maize yield in 'Push-pull' fields compared with monocultures with only manure added (5t/ha) and the yield increased even more with modest application of fertilizer (40KgN/ha) combined with manure (5t/ha).There was strong significant difference (p<0.001) on maize grain yield between 'Push-pull' (5.52t/ha) and monoculture (1.93t/ha) cropping systems in the three districts of central Kenya.From management perspective, the different fertilization regimes had strongest positive effect on maize yield in well managed 'Push-pull' cropping systems.
