Comparison of positional accuracy between RTK and RTX GNSS gased on the autonomous agricultural vehicles under field conditions [Article]
(American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, 2014)
Currently, many systems (machine vision, high resolution remote sensing, global positioning systems, and odometry techniques) have been integrated into agricultural e quipment to increase the efficiency, ...
Individual increase in inbreeding allows estimating effective sizes from pedigrees [Article]
(INRA, EDP Sciences, 2008)
We present here a simple approach to obtain reliable estimates of the effective population size in real world populations via the computation of the increase in inbreeding for each individual (delta F(i)) in a given ...
Efecto del Locus CSN3 sobre la composición de la leche de cabra de raza murciano-granadina [Article]
(Asociación Interprofesional para el Desarrollo Agrario, 2007)
Characterization of Pumps for Irrigation in Central California: Potential Energy Savings [Article]
(American Society of Civil Engineers, 2011)
The annual agricultural electric pumping usage in California is around 10 million MWh and most of it occurs in the Sacramento and San Joaquin Valleys, wher e the majority of agriculture is located (Burt et al., ...
Pedigree analysis in the Andalusian horse: population structure, genetic variability and influence of the Carthusian strain [Article]
The studbook of the Andalusian horse comprising a total of 75,389 individuals (6318 of them classified as Carthusians) was analysed in order to ascertain the genetic history of the breed and, specially, to evaluate its ...
Effects of the time to change from incubation to hatching temperature on the artificial incubation of red-legged partridge (Alectoris rufa) eggs [Article]
(Instituto Nacional de Investigación y Tecnología Agraria y Alimentaria (INIA), 2014)
This study investigates, in red-legged partridge (Alectoris rufa), the effects of the time to change from incubation to hatching temperature on egg weight loss, hatchability, chick weight at hatch, incubation length, and ...
Influencia de la raza sobre la aceptabilidad en el hogar de la carne de cabrito y comparación con la especie ovina [Article]
(Asociación Interprofesional para el Desarrollo Agrario (AIDA), 2007)
Las razas autóctonas caprinas españolas de aptitud cárnica, aunque cuentan con un censo relativamente escaso (22.000 cabezas en pureza), cumplen una importante misión como agentes valorizadores de zonas y ...
Genetic parameters of biokinematic variables of the trot in Spanish Purebred horses under experimental treadmill conditions [Article]
(Elsevier Ltd, 2007)
The purpose of this study was to estimate the genetic parameters of biokinematic variables in Spanish Purebred (SPB) horses in order to select those of sufficient interest to be measured in the pre-selection of the animals ...
A Numerical Modelling Study on the Potential Role of Tsunamis in the Biblical Exodus [Article]
(MDPI - Open Access Publishing, 2015)
The reliability of the narrative of the Biblical Exodus has been subject of heated debate for decades. Recent archaeological studies seem to provide new insight of the exodus path, and although with a still controversial ...
Application of individual increase in inbreeding to estimate realized effective sizes from real pedigrees [Article]
(Blackwell Verlag, 2008)
The objective of this study was to test the performance of a recently proposed methodology for the estimation of realized effective size (N(e)) based on individual increase in inbreeding (DeltaF(i)) on several real pedigrees: ...
