Are root exudation or rainfall on treated plants likely causes of pasture damage after wiper application of herbicides?
(Weeds Society of Western Australia, 2016-09-11)
Wiper application of herbicides to weeds sometimes causes damage to pasture plants, especially white clover, growing immediately under the wiped weeds. Two experiments were conducted to determine the potential for either ...
Resilient Productivity-Performance Constraints in New Zealand Road Maintenance and Rehabilitation Projects
Road pavement maintenance and rehabilitation contractors (RPMRCs) face challenges inherent in performance-based rewards which seek to maximize tax dollar through whole-of-life best value in the project delivery process. ...
Modelling nutrients flow for outdoor pig farms: effect of stochasticity
This paper first briefly describes a nutrient partitioning model for outdoor pig farms. The model uses input parameters that are commonly available on outdoor pig farms. The mechanistic and dynamic model simulates both ...
Challenges in Managing Residential Earthquake Insurance: A Post-Disaster Review
This paper examined the challenges associated with the management of the dual EQC-private insurance model offered in New Zealand after the Canterbury earthquake disasters. A mixed-methods approach comprising survey and ...
Intra-molecular lysine-arginine derived advanced glycation end-product cross-linking in Type I collagen: A molecular dynamics simulation study.
Covalently cross-linked advanced glycation end products (AGE) are among the major post-translational modifications to proteins as a result of non-enzymatic glycation. The formation of AGEs has been shown to have adverse ...
