Degradation profile and safety evaluation of methomyl residues in tomato and soil.

A high performance liquid chromatography with the photodiode array detector (HPLC-DAD) analytical method was developed to determine the residue levels and investigate the dissipation pattern and safety use of methomyl in tomato and soil. Methomyl residues were extracted from tomato and soil samples...

Prediction of nitrogen efficiency in dairy cattle: a review.

Increasing the efficiency of conversion of feed nitrogen (N) into milk and meat N in dairy cattle is an integral part of the effort to maintain or increase food production while decreasing agriculture's environmental impact. Mathematical models provide a means to assess and compare different...

Codigestion of swine wastewater and sugarcane stillage under different temperature conditions.

The current research aimed to perform the process of anaerobic co-digestion of vinasse, originated from the production of hydrous ethanol, and from the residues of swine raising processes using tubular biodigesters under different temperature conditions, evaluating the removal efficiency of solids,...

AbstractFull Text

Histopathological study of liver and kidney in common carp (Cyprinus carpio) exposed to different doses of potassium dichromate.

The liver plays vital role in metabolism and act, as a storage center of many substances while kidney function is to maintain homeostasis. Any damage to liver and kidney tissue will induce abnormalities in this process and ultimately can result in mortality of fish. The objective of present study...

AbstractFull Text

Estimation of (co)variances for growth traits in Nellore cattle raised in the humid tropics of Brazil by random regression.

Random regression models are currently used in genetic evaluation of beef cattle, because they allow changes in the mean and variance of the trait over time as well as estimation of (co) variances between any points along the growth curve. This study aimed to estimate (co)variances and genetic...

AbstractFull Text

Aerobic stability, chemical composition and ruminal degradability of sugarcane silage with glycerin from biodiesel.

The experiment was performed with the objective of studying the ensiled sugarcane silage with 0, 5, 10, 15 and 20% of glycerin in experimental PVC silos. The aerobic stability was assessed by measuring the pH and the temperature of the silage at 0, 24, 48, 72, 96 and 120h. The chemical composition,...
