It publishes original scientific work related to strategic and applied studies in all aspects of agricultural science and exploited species, as well as reviews of scientific topics of current agricultural relevance. Specific topics of interest include (but are not confined to): all aspects of crop and animal physiology, modelling of crop and animal systems, the scientific underpinning of agronomy and husbandry, animal welfare and behaviour, soil science, plant and animal product quality, plant and animal nutrition, engineering solutions, decision support systems, land use, environmental impacts of agriculture and forestry, impacts of climate change, rural biodiversity, experimental design and statistical analysis, and the application of new analytical and study methods (including genetic diversity and molecular biology approaches). The journal also publishes book reviews and letters. Occasional themed issues are published which have recently included centenary reviews, wheat papers and modelling animal systems.</div> </div> </div> Review: Rodent Control Strategies in Houses 2018-11-27T16:51:59+00:00 Abd El-Aleem Saad Soliman Desoky <p>Rats and mice are not only a nuisance but can also cause property damage and transmit diseases. You’ll know they’ve arrived if you see rodent droppings near a food source or shredded fabric or paper. If you identify rodents, there are several steps to take to ensure permanent removal of these pests.</p> <p>Removing rodents with traps or poisons will not keep rodents out of your home in the future. To permanently keep rats and mice out of your home or business, you will need to prevent access by sealing all possible entry points. It is equally important to eliminate rodent attractions such as food and water by keeping food in tightly sealed containers and repairing leaky pipes.</p> 2018-12-02T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Evaluation of on farm Demonstration of Dual gold (pre-emergence) and Gallant Super (post-emergence) herbicides for the Control of Weeds in Faba bean in the Highlands of Bale, Southeastern Ethiopia 2018-11-28T08:50:52+00:00 Reta Dargie Gudeta Amare Biftu Boset <p><em>The demonstration was conducted in two districts of Bale zone, Goba and Dinsho to demonstrate and validate the effectiveness of pre emergence (Dual gold) and post emergence (Gallant super) herbicides </em><em>laid out in simple plot design. Faba bean variety ‘Moti’ was used with recommended seed rate of 180 kg ha<sup>-1</sup>. 100 kg ha<sup>-1</sup>NPS fertilizer was applied all at planting. Important yield and yield components, percentage of yield increment and loss, production and benefit cost were collected to see the profitability difference of the herbicides. The grain yield of dual gold was higher than the gallant super and unsprayed and the percent benefit (%NB)) also showed that dual gold and gallant super were beneficial. However, the application of dual gold was superior rewarding treatment. </em><em>The guidelines on the utilization of the herbicides should be supported by practical training and following the safety and precautions of the manuals prepared with herbicides. </em></p> 2018-11-28T08:50:52+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
