  • The Nucleolar Fibrillarin Protein is Required for Helper Virus-Independent Long-Distance Trafficking of a Subviral Satellite RNA in Plants

    Abstract RNA trafficking plays pivotal roles in regulating plant development, gene silencing, and adaptation to environmental stress. Satellite RNAs (satRNAs), parasites of viruses, depend on their helper viruses (HVs) for replication, encapsidation, and efficient spread. However, it remains largely unknown how satRNAs interact with viruses and the cellular machinery to undergo trafficking. ...

  • Continuity and change forces in Indian automobile industry: a case of tractor company

    In an organisation, continuity and change always go side by side. In the current business scenario, the 'continuity' and 'change' are found of great importance. In the past, there was a lot of emphasis on 'managing the change' in the business. The efforts for managing the change in the organisation are found to lead towards a lot of turbulence or end up with the chaos. The management of ...

  • Gravelpave2 Cement Binder

    In using cement as a stabilizing agent in Gravelpave2, location and application need to be considered in order to determine delivery method. Small, remote projects like rails to trails installations or horse trails where larger vehicle access is limited will require a small portable cement mixer and wheel barrow conveyance. Cement is added to stone proportionately, say one shovel full for every ...

  • On combining vision-based hybrid classifiers for weeds detection in precision agriculture

    One objective in precision agriculture is to minimise the volume of herbicides that are applied to the fields through the use of site-specific weed management systems. This paper outlines an automatic computer vision system for the detection and differential spraying of Avena sterilis, a noxious weed growing in cereal crops. With such purpose we have designed a multiple hybrid decision making ...

  • Yield and plant growth response of peanut to midseason forage harvest

    Harvesting of peanut (Arachis hypogaea L.) foliage during the growing season may increase farm revenue through the sale of peanut hay; however, it is unknown how the peanut plant will respond to forage removal with respect to plant characteristics, pod yield, quality, and revenue. This experiment was a randomized complete block design where peanut foliage was harvested or sprayed with a plant ...

  • Evaluation of dandelion as a potential forage species in mixed-species swards

    Recent research has indicated that increasing species diversity of the pastures might improve sward productivity and stability. The present experiment evaluates the effect of dandelion (Taraxacum officinale Weber) as a potential pasture species on the performance of a perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.)–white clover (Trifolium repens L.) mixture in terms of total herbage yield, weed ...

  • Tractor Manufacturer

    The wastewater from the tractor manufacturing facility was being trucked to a wastewater treatment facility 120 miles away for treatment and disposal of the wastewater. The wastewater consists of heavy cutting oils/lubricants that could not be treated using conventional chemistries. Integrated Engineers developed a treatment process, which involved Floccin. The mixing requirement was heavy to get ...

  • Harvest techniques change annual warm-season legume forage yield and nutritive value

    Comparison among warm-season legume forage trials may not be valid if harvest techniques vary. To address this question, herbage dry matter (DM) yields, branching, crude protein (CP), and fiber concentrations for nine warm-season annual herbaceous legumes were measured by hand-plucking all leaves and pliable tips or clipping at 7.5- or 15-cm height. The experiment was conducted in Texas on a ...

  • Forage pasture production, risk analysis, and the buffering capacity of triticale

    Many livestock producers minimize input costs by relying solely on naturalized, mixed-species pasture, but expose themselves to risks associated with forage yields that fluctuate in response to variable environmental conditions. This study was undertaken to assess winter triticale (xTriticosecale spp.) as a potential component of forage systems from the perspective of reducing forage yield risk. ...
