Linkflow, a Water-Flow Computer-Model for Water-Table Management .1. Model Development
A computer simulation model, LINKFLOW, was developed to calculate the movement of water during various water table management practices, namely subsurface drainage, controlled drainage, and subirrigation. The model can ...
Effect of fish oil and monensin on milk composition in dairy cows
Four primparous Holstein cows were used in a 4 x 4 Latin square with 21-d periods to determine the effect of redfish oil and monensin sodium on milk composition. The four dietary treatments were a basal diet (control), the ...
Effect of Enzyme Additives on Quality of Alfalfa Grass-Silage and Dairy-Cow Performance
First- and second-cut alfalfa/grass forage crops were wilted to approximately 40% dry matter (DM) and ensiled untreated (control) or treated with either of two enzyme additives to determine the effects on silage quality ...
Regenerative Trait and Cold Hardiness in Highly Productive Cultivars of Alfalfa and Red-Clover
In earlier work on improvement of persistance in forage legumes, we selected genotypes from highly productive cultivars of alfalfa, Algonquin and Apica (Euphytica 45: 105-112, 1990) and cv. Florex red clover (Plant Cell ...
Factors Influencing Pasture Productivity in Atlantic Canada
Most pastures in Atlantic Canada are classified as permanent and contain primarily native species. Well-managed native swards have the potential of supporting profitable animal output. Productive cultivars of cool-season ...

Considerations in the nutritional modification of milk composition
The trend to determine milk value on the basis of its components, is becoming global, with increasing emphasis being placed on its protein content (Murphy and O'Mara, 1993). A milk market based on fat appears to be shrinking, ...
Tandem Moving Pressure Wave Mechanism for Phloem Translocation
A mechanism for phloem translocation is proposed based on a loading-unloading hypothesis. The forces are many local tandem moving pressure gradients. Evidence to support this hypothesis is developed from the published ...

Influences of Production Inputs on Incidence of Infection by Fusarium Species on Cereal Seed
Production inputs of supplementary nitrogen, fungicides, and plant growth regulator were evaluated on wheat and triticale cultivars (four site years) and on two- and six-row barley cultivars (two site years each) for ...
