    Management of Plant Growth Regulators in Cotton Using Active Crop Canopy Sensors

    Authors: Rodrigo Gonçalves Trevisan, Natanael Santana Vilanova Júnior, Mateus Tonini Eitelwein and José Paulo Molin

    Journal: Agriculture 2018, 8(7), 101

    Publisher: MDPI

    Factors affecting cotton development present spatial and temporal variability. Plant growth regulators (PGR) are used to control vegetative growth, promote higher yields, better fiber quality, and facilitate mechanical harvest. The optimal rate of PGR application depends on crop height, biomass, and growth rate. Thus, the objective of this study was to evaluate optical and ultrasonic crop canopy sensors to detect the crop spatial variability in cotton fields, and to develop strategies for using this information to perform variable rate application (VRA) of PGR in cotton. Field trials were conducted in Midwest Brazil during the 2013/2014 and 2014/2015 crop seasons. Two optical and two ultrasonic active crop canopy sensors were evaluated as tools to detect crop variability. On-farm trials were used to develop and validate algorithms for VRA based on within-field variations in crop response to PGR applications. The overall performance of the sensors to predict crop height and the accumulation of biomass in cotton was satisfactory. Short distance variability was predominant in some fields, reducing the performance of the sensors while making current technology for variable rate application of PGR inadequate. In areas with large scale variability, the VRA led to 17% savings in PGR products and no significant effect on yield was observed. Ultrasonic sensors present can be a low-cost alternative to implement variable rate application of PGR in real time.

    Model Design and Simulation of Automatic Sorting Machine using Proximity Sensor

    Authors: Bankole I. Oladapo,V.A. Balogun, A.O.M. Adeoye, C.O. Ijagbemi, Afolabi S., Oluwole, I.A. Daniyan, A. Esoso Aghor, Asanta P. Simeon

    Journal Title: Engineering Science and Technology, an International Journal

    Publisher: Elsevier

    Society/Institution: Karabuk University

    The automatic sorting system has been reported to be complex and a global problem. This is because of the inability of sorting machines to incorporate flexibility in their design concept. This research therefore designed and developed an automated sorting object of a conveyor belt. The developed automated sorting machine is able to incorporate flexibility and separate species of non-ferrous metal objects and at the same time move objects automatically to the basket as defined by the regulation of the Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) with a capacitive proximity sensor to detect a value range of objects. The result obtained shows that plastic, wood, and steel were sorted into their respective and correct position with an average, sorting, time of 9.903 s, 14.072 s and 18.648 s respectively. The proposed developed model of this research could be adopted at any institution or industries, whose practices are based on mechatronics engineering systems. This is to guide the industrial sector in sorting of object and teaching aid to institutions and hence produce the list of classified materials according to the enabled sorting program commands.

    Precision livestock farming at Brazil’s Fazenda Santa Fé cattle farms increases ranches’ productivity

    Brasilia: Red dust blows across the broad and sweltering steppe, and there’s a strong smell in the air. Forty thousand head of cattle can’t help but give off a certain odor. These ones have no idea that they’re pioneering the future of livestock farming. Thankfully for those sensitive to smell, Fazenda Santa Fé, one of Brazil’s largest cattle farms, is situated far off in the Brazilian state of Goiás, some 400 kilometers southwest of the capital, Brasília.

    Solar Greenhouses generate Electricity and Grow Crops at the same time, UC Santa Cruz study reveals

    The first crops of tomatoes and cucumbers grown inside electricity-generating solar greenhouses were as healthy as those raised in conventional greenhouses, signaling that "smart" greenhouses hold great promise for dual-use farming and renewable electricity production.

    "We have demonstrated that 'smart greenhouses' can capture solar energy for electricity without reducing plant growth, which is pretty exciting," said Michael Loik, professor of environmental studies at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and lead author on a paper that appears in the current issue of the American Geophysical Union's journal Earth's Future.

    "Although sales of U.S. organic food exceed $6 billion annually, federal funding into organic production hasn’t kept pace. That’s one of the conclusions in a recent report from the Organic Farming Research Foundation, a research and organic advocacy nonprofit based in Santa Cruz, Calif. Based on a survey of more than 1,200 organic farmers, the report calls out five areas within organic agriculture it says are especially in need of exploration."

    Brief history of Eucalyptus breeding in Brazil under perspective of biometric advances

    Authors: Carla Aparecida de Oliveira Castro, Rafael Tassinari Resende, Leonardo Lopes Bhering, Cosme Damião Cruz

    Journal Title: Ciência Rural

    Publisher: Universidade Federal de Santa Maria

    Forest breeding is a science that has been developing in Brazil since 1941 being the Eucalyptus a highlighted genus in this scenario. In a global scene, Brazil is displayed prominently in productivity of Eucalyptus planting, due to favorable environmental conditions to cultivation development, and the incentive in research for improvement of traits of interest t observed in it species and hybrids. This research included a historical review of Eucalyptus breeding over the years under genetic biometric perspective in Brazil, from reports describing the pioneer planting up to the current genome wide selection (GWS) that came as a complement of forest breeding success. This review showed some of the tracks performed by researchers aiming to improve the productive and quality of phenotypic traits from Eucalyptus genus.
