Abstract :

To generate projections for agricultural production in Latvia until 2050, the Latvian Agricultural Sector Analysis Model (LASAM) was developed at the Latvia University of Life Sciences and Technologies in 2016. At that stage, the model generated projections for the so-called “activity data”, which were used for projecting GHG (greenhouse gases) emissions from agriculture. Nevertheless, the mod ...

Abstract :

World population growth will increase the demand for food, while rising incomes are expected to change the eating habits. Agriculture remains a major source of nutrients that may require drastic changes. Accordingly, it is necessary to project the potential future development of various agricultural sectors. Therefore, the overall aim of this study is to identify the development opportunities ...

Abstract :

Effective investing of public money in the road infrastructure should be the basis for construction of new roads or reconstruction of the existing ones. Funding for the maintenance of the road infrastructure in Latvia has been insufficient since the restoration of independence. This means the existing budget funds should be used sustainably. One of the solutions that are offered is the use of ...

Abstract :

The article analyses the sources of ammonia (NH3) emissions in Latvia and the trends from 2005 to 2018 with the focus on agricultural production. The study is based on the annual Latvia’s Informative Inventory Report 1990 –2018 submitted under the Convention on Long - Range Transboundary Air Pollution Annex I data. It is crucial to decrease NH3 emissions due to their toxic nature to the ecosys ...

Abstract :

The confectionary market consists of dried fruits, cereal bars, chocolate, and gum and sugar confectionary. Nowadays, the issue of the healthiness of sweets is becoming increasingly topical. Freeze-drying raw materials in the manufacture of sweets makes it possible to obtain products of high nutritional value. Depending on the moisture content of the products, it is important to choose the sui ...

Abstract :

Pectins are biopolymers, which exist inside the cell walls. Apples are the richest source of pectin comparing to other fruits and vegetables. Pectin has many health benefits and might be used in regenerative medicine as drug delivery systems, as dietary fibre, as edible films, to neutralize cholesterol and to lose excess weight. Five cultivars grown in Latvia, Tukums Municipality, Pūre parish ...

Abstract :

There is a need to find acceptable crops for energy production for the climatic and soil conditions in Latvia. Greater burdock (Arctium lappa L) and large-leaf lupin (Lupinus polyphyllus L.) are growing in Latvia for years. Sosnovsky cow parsnip (Heracleum sosnowskyi Manden.) was introduced around 50 years ago as the fodder crop, but it was labelled as an invading plant spreading over 10 230 h ...

Abstract :

It is needed to evaluate the biogas and energy potential from different biomass, including manure, wastewater sludge, energy plants, and food and biofuel processing waste in Latvia. Biogas output from different biomass was investigated in laboratory scale digesters operated at 38 ºC. Biomass mixed with inoculums (fermented cow manure) was investigated for biogas production in fifteen digesters ...
