  • Biocontrol of aspergillus flavus and aflatoxin b1 production in corn

    Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus parasiticus are the most important aflatoxin-producing filamentous fungi. They can occur in several plant products, like spices, cereals and oily seeds (Jelinek 1998, Pittet, 1998 and Lewellyn, 1992). Aflatoxins (AF) are secondary metabolites with a high carcinogenic potential, especially in liver tissue. In addition the aflatoxins possess an acute toxicity at ...

  • Organic and conventional production systems in the wisconsin integrated cropping systems trials: i. Productivity 1990–2002

    During the last half-century, agriculture in the upper U.S. Midwest has changed from limited-input, integrated grain–livestock systems to primarily high-input specialized livestock or grain systems. This trend has spawned a debate regarding which cropping systems are more sustainable and led to the question: can diverse, low-input cropping systems (organic systems) be as productive as ...

  • Why ethanol production will drive world food prices even higher in 2008

    We are witnessing the beginning of one of the great tragedies of history.

  • Operationalising eco-efficiency in agriculture: the example of specialised dairy farms in Flanders

    Eco-efficiencies of a representative set of Flemish dairy farms were determined for the years 19891990 and 20002001. Eco-efficiency was measured as a combination of nitrogen (N) use efficiency and energy use efficiency, where N use efficiency (l milk kg-1 N surplus) is the ratio between the amount of produced milk and the farm-gate N surplus (= N input − N output). Energy use efficiency (l milk ...
