The trials were carried out in 2012 and 2013 at the Estonian University of Life Sciences. Total yield, marketable yield, number of tubers per plant, average weight of tubers, tuber starch content was studied in cultivar 'Ants' (medium late) and 'Laura' (medium early). Following treatments were used: untreated control (T0) Seed tubers were planted directly from storage house (storage temperatur ...

The aim of this study was to determine relationships between ammonia and hydrogen sulphide emissions and the type of manure storage, and correlations between emissions and Estonian climatic conditions. Total ammonia (NH3) and hydrogen sulphide (H2S) emissions depend directly on the open area of manure storage. Of ring-shaped manure storage, with permanent roofing (H1, open area 3.9 m2), 2.7 kg ...

Molecular methods are currently available to detect parasitic DNA in soil, but do not replace the need for direct parasitological methods that can identify the extent of contamination. This report describes an inexpensive and fast flotation method for retrieving Eimeria oocysts from soil that requires few tools. Soil samples were experimentally contaminated with 50,000 E. bovis oocysts and com ...

The impact of using humic substance for growing potato on quality indicators of tubers. Humic preparations are concentrated and economical form of organic matter which can relieve humus depletion caused by conventional fertilization methods. The trials were carried out in 2012 and 2013 at the Estonian University of Life Sciences in Estonia. The yield of tubers and starch, and commercial yield ...

The objective of this study was to compare milk parameters during lactation months on farms using automatic (ALS) and conventional milking systems (PLS). The highest milk yield per cow (30.1 kg) was obtained on 3x PLS farms, whereas cows on 2x PLS farms produced 7.7 kg less milk. Milk yield of the cows on ALS farms (24.8 to 26.3 kg) was between that of 2x PLS 2 and 3x PLS farms. On Robot 1 AL ...

In 2011 the experiment with spring wheat 'Manu' was carried out on the experimental field of the Estonian University of Life Sciences. The experiment was carried out in the soils with different content of organic carbon (Corg): background A with higher Corg content > 1.7% and background B with lower Corg content ≤ 1.7%. Four fertilizing treatment were used: 1) unfertilized, control (K); 2) co ...

Sheep have different nutritional requirements over the production cycle depending, on their life stage. Needs for energy are high at the end of gestation (especially for ewes carrying multiple lambs) and at the beginning of lactation. Ewe body condition score (BCS), production traits and feeding were monitored on three organic sheep farms (Farm A, B and C) during a three year period (2010–201 ...

The majority of the wild feline species are classified as dangerous or particularly dangerous, and that is why, in captivity conditions, performing routine manipulations is impossible without immobilisation. The choice of the immobilization method is made taking into consideration specific conditions, human resources, technology and the equipment available for registering vital physiologic pa ...

Beef cattle farming have expanded rapidly over the last decade in Estonia. The objective of this work was to study the effect of long ageing time on the quality of meat of the Aberdeen Angus cattle. Technological traits were analysed at 14, 28, 35 and 60 days, and chemical parameters at 14 days of ageing. No differences were found between the moisture, ash and protein contents of the muscles, ...
