  • A tool and methodology for designing the optimisation activities of a logistic system – case study

    The current economic crisis combined with increasing fuel costs raises awareness that in value chains the logistics represents a large portion of costs and hence modern companies are increasingly interested in investments in research and development of specialised fleet optimisation tools. A new tool and methodology that enable the end-user to carry out a logistic research and optimisation in a ...

  • Particle-facilitated pesticide leaching from differently structured soil monoliths

    Received for publication September 19, 2008. The leaching of soil particles and surface applied 14C-labeled glyphosate and pendimethalin from intact soil columns (height: 50 cm; diameter: 30 cm) were investigated, and the relative significance of particle-facilitated pesticide transport was quantified. Investigations were performed with a recently plowed (four columns) and an untilled (five ...

  • Hwy E, Freedom, Wisconsin

    Wisconsin winters are notorious for the damage they can cause to roads. An example of winter’s influence was seen on Highway E, a winding, two-lane asphalt road that serves commuters between Little Chute and Oneida. Once called the worst stretch of road in Outagamie County, it was plagued by cracking and heaving during the winter months. Similar problems occur elsewhere in the region where ...

  • Continuous corn response to residue management and nitrogen fertilization

    Harvesting corn (Zea mays L.) residue in continuous corn (CC) may require changes in crop management for increased efficiency. Experiments were conducted in Illinois to determine how residue removal and tillage affect surface residue after planting and the response of CC to N fertilization. Partial removal of residue left 21 to 26% surface residue coverage with a chisel plow system, compared with ...

  • Change in Surface Soil Carbon under Rotated Corn in Eastern South Dakota

    A diversified crop rotation may reduce fertilizer N inputs for corn (Zea mays L.) and increase soil organic C (SOC). Our objectives were to determine the effects of crop rotation and fertilizer N on soil C within the surface soil (0–15-cm depth). Rotations were started in 1990 on a Barnes sandy clay loam near Brookings, SD. Measurements of SOC began in 1996. Primary tillage since 1996 was chisel ...
