La spectroscopie dans le proche infrarouge ( SPIR ) est une technique analytique basée sur le principe d’absorption des rayonnements (infrarouges) par la matière organique. Cette absorption étant liée à la composition chimique des échantillons, on peut estimer cette dernière par la sim...
This ACIAR project aims to bridge the gap by assessing locally available protein and energy sources as potential components of commercial pig diets. On-farm assessments and other extension activities will share these results with the commercial and smallholder sectors.
En Guadeloupe, les exploitations de monoculture de canne sont menacées: le prix de rémunération de la production de la canne à sucre va fortement diminuer, la fertilisation uniquement minérale augmente la dépendance de l'archipel et fragilise les sols. Dans ces conditions peut-on diversifier...
