Carbendazim (MBC) (methyl-2-benzimidazole carbamate) and tebuconazole (TBZ) ((RS)-1-(4-chlorophenyl)-4,4-dimethyl-3-(1H-1,2,4-triazol-1-ylmethyl)pentan-3-ol) are widely used in agriculture for the prevention and control of fungal diseases. Solid lipid nanoparticles and polymeric nanocapsules are carrier systems that offer advantages including changes in the(More)
A mixed population of Meloidogyne arenaria race 1 and M. javanica race 3 is reported on peanut from a field in Levy County, Florida. Confirmation of M. javanica on peanut is based on esterase and malate dehydrogenase isozyme patterns resolved on polyacrylamide slab gels following electrophoresis, and perineal patterns. Up to 29% of 290 individual females(More)
One of the main consequences of population growth is that an equivalent food production increase is needed. To meet this basic need of society and ensure growth in food production, it is necessary the use of agrochemicals such as herbicides, preventing competition between crops and weeds for soil nutrients. This growth in use of agrochemicals has(More)
Preconsolidation stress (σ p) is an important physical indicator of the load-bearing capacity of soil, which is used for predicting agricultural trafficability. This study aimed to compare prediction models for agricultural trafficability using soil physical attributes as explanatory variables on soils of coastal lands cultivated with sugarcane in the(More)
Empirical data are needed to show the efficacy of co-management, which is regarded as a promising approach to achieve conservation goals. In this study, we addressed the potential influence of fisheries co-management to increase fish abundance and fishing yields in the lower Tocantins River Basin (Brazilian Amazon), downstream from a large dam. We analyzed(More)
White mold is an agricultural disease caused by the fungus Sclerotinia sclerotiorum, which affects important crops. There are different ways of controlling this organism, but none provides inhibition of its resistance structures (sclerotia). Nanotechnology offers promising applications in agricultural area. Here, silver nanoparticles were biogenically(More)
