Production and loss of nitrate in Brachiaria humidicola and Panicum maximum in the Sinu river valleyProducción y pérdida de nitrato en Brachiaria humidicola y Panicum maximum en el valle del río Sinú
(Corporación Colombiana de Investigación Agropecuaria (Agrosavia), 2012-06-08)
Nitrogen loss, from the nitrification of nitrogen fertilizer, creates pollution through nitrous oxide emissions and nitrate leaching. The reports on Brachiaria as a biological nitrification inhibitor were evaluated to determine nitrate losses of Brachiaria humidicola CIAT 679 (indicator plant for biological nitrification inhibition) and Panicum maximum cv. tanzania (non-inhibiting plant). The incubated soil technique ...
Diurnal ingestive Behavior of beef cattle on grass hybrid Brachiaria Mulato IIComportamiento ingestivo diurno de bovinos de ceba en Brachiaria híbrido Mulato II
(Corporación Colombiana de Investigación Agropecuaria (Agrosavia), 2015-12-30)
For cattle production under grazing conditions, the system characteristic is the multiplicity of elements that interact to make meaningful changes in the eating habits of cattle. This study evaluated diurnal behavior and their productive performance. Grazing cattle were fed with hybrid Brachiaria cv. Mulato II. This study was conducted in a 107 days period between July and October 2010 at Corpoica Turipaná Research ...
Effects of environmental conditions on feeding behavior in beef cattle in an intensive system in the Sinú ValleyEfectos de las condiciones ambientales sobre el comportamiento ingestivo en bovinos de carne en un sistema intensivo en el Valle del Sinú
(Corporación Colombiana de Investigación Agropecuaria (Agrosavia), 2013-01-17)
Increases in temperature and relative humidity together with the solar radiation effect are detrimental to animal welfare, affecting their behavior when it comes to feeding and digestive behavior, which affects their productivity. Therefore, the goal of this research was to analyze the link between atmospheric variables, air temperature, relative humidity, wind speed and solar radiation to the time of grazing and ...
Effect of nitrogen fertilization on nitrous oxide and methane dynamics in Brachiaria humidicola (Rendle) SchweickerdtEfecto de la fertilización nitrogenada en la dinámica del óxido nitroso y metano en Brachiaria humidicola (Rendle) Schweickerdt.
(Corporación Colombiana de Investigación Agropecuaria (Agrosavia), 2011-11-23)
Livestock activities cause a significant impact on the environment due to the release of N into the soil, which in turn results in nitrification and the emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG). At Corpoica’s Turipaná Research Center (Cereté, Colombia), we evaluated three different genotypes of B. humidicola (CIAT 16888, CIAT 26159, and CIAT 679) with three levels of nitrogen fertilization application (0, 150, and 300 kg ...
