Design, development and evaluation of a wireless system for the automatic identification of implements
Monitoring operative conditions is one of the most important aspects of modern agricultural management. In order to improve data collection efficiency, it is necessary to develop an automated system that collects data on ...
A methodology for designing and evaluating alternative cropping systems: Application on dairy and arable farms
To improve the sustainability of agricultural systems of the Lombardia region (northern Italy), a mixed indicator-model-expert approach was used. Starting from the results of a previous assessment of current management ...
A comparison of the functional traits of Common reed (Phragmites australis) in Northern China: Aquatic vs. terrestrial ecotypes
(Public Library of Science, 2014)
Common reed (Phragmites australis (Cav.) Trin. ex Steud.) is distributed widely throughout the world with various ecotypes. This research compares the functional traits and biomass allocation patterns of two contrasting ...
Evaluation of vaginal discharge with the Metricheck device and the relationship to reproductive performance in postpartum dairy cows
(Wiley: 12 months, 2014)
Vaginal mucus during estrus was examined with the Metricheck device and the relationship to the reproduction of high-yielding dairy cows was studied. The study was conducted in 99 dairy herds located in Western Germany and ...
Modeling the Reaction Kinetics During Hydrothermal Carbonization of Waste Biomass
Dynamics of large wood during a flash flood in two mountain catchments
(European Geosciences Union (EGU) / Copernicus Publications, 2015)
Understanding and modelling the dynamics of large wood (LW) in rivers during flood events has spurred a great deal of research in recent years. However, few studies have documented the effect of high-magnitude flash floods ...
Homoclinic solutions of quasiperiodic Lagrangian systems
(Khayyam Publishing, 1995)
We consider quasiperiodic positive definite Lagrangian systems and establish the existence of one or more solutions homoclinic (namely asymptotic as $t o \pm \infty$) to a quasiperiodic solution. These results are obtained ...
Monitoring of the energy performance of a district heating CHP plant based on biomass boiler and ORC generator
More than seventy district heating (DH) plants based on biomass are operating in South Tyrol (Italy) and most of them supply heat to residential districts. Almost 20% of them are cogenerative systems, thus enabling primary ...
Forced oscillations for singular dynamical systems with an application to the restricted three body problem
We consider forced dynamical systems with two degrees of freedom having singular potentials and we prove existence of infinitely many classical (noncollision) periodic solutions. These solutions have a prescribed rotation ...
