Abstract

Study on pesticide residues of phorate and emamectin benzoate in the ball well protected cauliflower variety.

In order to study the difference and cause in the amount of pesticide residues between ball well protected and unprotected cauliflower varieties, Jinpin 70, a new male sterile cauliflower variety with ball well protected, and Xuebao with ball unprotected were used as plant materials, to investigate...

AbstractFull Text

Effects of wheat straw biochar and nitrogen amendment on methane and nitrous oxide distribution characteristics within soil profile in rice-wheat annual rotations.

Objectives: Biochar has been proposed as a potent tool for greenhouse gas mitigations. The distribution characteristics of methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O) in the soil profiles can provide detailed information on the mechanisms of greenhouse gas production and emissions. Methods: Four...

AbstractFull Text

The heavy metals in agrosystems and impact on health and quality of life.

The metal is a chemical element that conducts electricity well and heat, and the nonferrous metals builds cations and ionic bonds. Heavy metals include metals whose density is higher than 5 g/cm3. The whole range of the metal is in the form of essential trace elements, essential for a number of...

AbstractFull Text

Use of fish as bio-indicator of the effects of heavy metals pollution.

The present review gives a brief account of the toxic effects of heavy metals on fish. In aquatic ecosystem, heavy metals are considered as the most important pollutants, since they are present throughout the ecosystem and are detectable in critical amounts. Heavy metals, such as mercury, cadmium,...

AbstractFull Text

Exploring the use of random regression models with Legendre polynomials to analyze clutch size in Iranian native fowl.

Random regression models (RRM) have become common for the analysis of longitudinal data or repeated records on individual over time. The goal of this paper was to explore the use of random regression models with orthogonal/Legendre polynomials (RRL) to analyze new repeated measures called clutch...
