peanut; energy efficiency; farm size; cost analysis; guilan province

Abstract :

In this study, the energy and economic analysis of peanut production in Guilan province of Iran was studied. Data were collected from questionnaires of 75 farmers. The data were collected from three farm size categories namely: 0.1–0.5 ha, 0.5-1 ha and larger than 1 ha. The results revealed that 19407.36 MJ ha-1 energy input was totally consumed. The highest share of energy consumption belonge ...

threats; weaknesses; strengths; tillage; opportunities

Abstract :

For improvement or change in a plowing system, it is crucial that all important parameters to be taken in account. Recommendation of a tillage system should receive supports from research data as well as from skilled farmers in order to find a resolution to problems of that system. In this study, strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT) of different tillage systems for wheat cul ...

Agrovoc Terms :

energy; soil moisture; soil physical propertie; specific fuel consumption; secondary tillage machinery

Abstract :

About 60% of the mechanical energy consumed in mechanized agriculture is used for tillage operations and seedbed preparation. On the other hand, unsuitable tillage system resulted in soil degradation, affecting soil physical properties and destroying soil structure. The objective of this research was to compare the effects of three types of secondary tillage machines on soil physical propertie ...

Agrovoc Terms :

polyethylene; storage; color; firmness; soluble solid content

Abstract :

In this research, kiwifruits (Hayward) were selected in two mass ranges (large and small). They were placed in one-liter glass bottles in the vicinity of the polyethylene sachets containing potassium permanganate nano-zeolite (0, 0.2, 0.4 and 0.8 g) and were stored in a germinator (5°C temperature and 30% relative humidity). Then, the physicochemical properties of the fruits (soluble solid con ...

regional maxima; separation; machine vision; harvesting robot; orange harvesting, image processing

Abstract :

Within the last few years, a new tendency has been created towards robotic harvesting of oranges and some of citrus fruits. The first step in robotic harvesting is accurate recognition and positioning of fruits. Detection through image processing by color cameras and computer is currently the most common method. Obviously, a harvesting robot faces with natural conditions and, therefore, detect ...
