Three essays on phosphorus runoff and water quality
source pollution. The results could be helpful policy makers to target specific regions to initiate environmental policies and extension efforts for designing educational programs to increase adoption rate as well as environmental quality....
Nitrogen management strategies to improve corn growth and reduce soil greenhouse gas emissions from claypan soils
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2018)
. The objective of this study was to determine the effects of urea fertilizer placement with and without the addition of a nitrification inhibitor (NI) on corn yield, N use efficiency (NUE), and cumulative soil N2O emissions on a Northeastern Missouri claypan soil...
Digestible lysine and threonine requirements of male turkeys and their effects on performance of male turkeys fed practical diets to market age
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2008)
Seven experiments were conducted to determine the minimum requirements of digestible lysine (dLys) and digestible threonine (dThr) from 1 to 21 weeks of age for male turkeys. Requirement values were similar to NRC (1994) ...
Experimentally assessing the influence of resource availability and social aggregation on the parasites of raccoons
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
raccoon populations were randomly subjected to differential resource provisions for two years; a clumped food distribution to aggregate hosts (n = 5 populations), a dispersed food distribution to control for the effects of food without aggregating hosts (n...
Soil surface-seal measurement using high-resolution x-ray computed tomography (HRCT)
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2006)
Rainfall on bare soil breaks soil aggregates, detaching particles, plugging pores and decreasing porosity in the top few mm of soil. This reduces hydraulic conductivity and increases runoff through a process known as surface ...
The antioxidative effects of exercise training-and diet-induced weight loss
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2007)
[ACCESS RESTRICTED TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI AT AUTHOR'S REQUEST.] Obesity and insulin resistance (IR) increase the risk for coronary heart disease (CHD); however, much of this risk is not attributable to traditional risk factors. Elevated...
