  • Macronutrient and micronutrient foliar sprays vs. water stage fruit split
           in pecan Carya illinoinensis

    • Authors: Ramiro Salas-Rivera, Luis Alonso Valdez-Aguilar, Ricardo Hugo Lira-Saldívar, Luis Ibarra-Jiménez, Antonio Cardenas-Flores
      Pages: 1 - 8
      Abstract: Northern Mexican pecan growers from Coahuila reported yield losses caused by the water stage fruit split (WS) probably linked to nutrient deficiencies. Therefore, the effect of foliar fertilizations on the occurrence of WS in Wichita and Western pecan cvs. was evaluated. First, trees were sprayed with macronutrients, micronutrients or both. At the midpoint of the growing season, the percentage of split nuts was measured and the leaflets from leaves next to nut clusters containing non-split and split fruits were sampled to measure their nutrient concentration. The WS was only detected in Wichita trees, but even if the fertilizations improved their nutrient status, compared to non-fertilized control, they did not significantly impact the WS occurrence. However, leaflets next to split fruit containing clusters showed higher nitrogen (N) and lower iron (Fe) concentration than leaflets next to non-split clusters. This suggests that N and Fe play an important role on the WS disorder.

  • Productive response of supplemented calves with starter feed plus yeast
           culture (Saccharomyces cerevisiae)

    • Authors: Castillo-Olivera Jesús Omar, Guerra-Medina Cándido Enrique, Ley- de Coss Alejandro, Montañez-Valdez Oziel Dante, Reyes-Gutiérrez José Andrés, Escobar-España José Carlos, Posada-Cruz Saúl
      Pages: 9 - 14
      Abstract: The objective of the study was to evaluate the productive response of lactating calves fed with initiator with added Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast culture (YC). Ten male and six female calves, aged between five and 27 days, were randomly assigned to two treatments: T1) starter feed and T2) starter feed plus YC used in a completely randomized experimental design with eight replicates per treatment. They were under continuous grazing on Estrella (Cynodon plectostachyus) and Guinea (Megathyrzus maximum) grass pastures, plus starter on free access. From day 135 onwards, two kg of growth feed per calf were supplied. The variables evaluated were daily weight gain (DWG), live weight change (LWC), starter feed intake (SI) and feed conversion (FC). There were no differences in the variables evaluated (p> 0.05) in both treatments. The results indicate that the productive response in lactating calves is similar to that of calves including yeast culture in their diet.

  • Traditional knowledge of wild edible fungi in the p'urhépecha
           community of Comachuén, Nahuatzen, Michoacán

    • Authors: Luisa Sebastiana Servín Campuzano, Pablo Eulogio Alarcón-Cháires
      Pages: 15 - 29
      Abstract: The aim of this text was to document and to report the traditional knowledge (TK) of eatable wild fungi from Comachuen, an indigenous community in Nahuatzen, Michoacán. Through ethnomycology’s methodologies and the Popular Environmental Education, interviews, life stories and workshops were carried out, as well as fungi’s collection and identification. The results show the characteristics and importance of local taxonomy in this kind of organisms. Of the 25 common names that are given to the wild fungi, three have cultural relevancy. So, it is concluded that the community has extensive TK with respect to edible wild fungi and that these are important in their diet during the rainy season; therefore, its conjugation with the scientific knowledge can be used for management plans that ensure its conservation, as well as the development of community bylaws to contribute to its empowerment and biocultural heritage management.

  • Tiller population dynamics of perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.) in
           monoculture and in mixtures with orchard grass (Dactylis glomerata L.) and
           white clover (Trifolium repens L.)

    • Authors: Ever Del jesus Flores Santiago, Alfonso Hernández Garay, Juan de Dios Guerrero Rodriguez, Humberto Vaquera Huerta, Said Cadena Villegas, Sergio Iban Mendoza Pedrosa
      Pages: 30 - 37
      Abstract: The aim of this study was to determine the population dynamics of tillers of perennial ryegrass (BP; Lolium perenne L.), as a monoculture and in mixtures with orchard grass (PO; Dactylis glomerata L.) and white clover (TB; Trifolium repens L.) under grazing conditions. Sheep belonging to Suffolk with Dorset breed were used as defoliators. The treatments were the combinations: 100:00:00, 40:20:40, 50:00:50, 20:40:40, 70:20:10, 20:70:10 and 40:40:20% of BP, PO, and TB, respectively. A complete randomized block design with three replications was used. The variables evaluated were: plant density (DP), density of population of tillers (DPT), rate of appearance (TAT), death rate (TMT) and survival rate of tillers (TST). The highest average of DP in BP was found in autumn-winter with the mixture 50:00:50, reaching 13 plants m2, respectively (p < 0.05). In DPT there were differences (p < 0.05) among BP mixtures; however, a highly variable performance was observed, being in winter when the highest DP values were found (422 tillers m2) in the mixture 50:00:50 (p < 0.05). In BP, the mixture 20:40:40 had the highest TAT with 7.0 tillers 100-1 tillers, same mixture presenting the highest TMT in March; as with the mixture 20:70:10, with 4 tillers 100 tillers-1 in April, respectively (p < 0.05). Tiller population dynamic of ballico perenne (DPT, TAT, TMT, TST) is not determined by the proportion of species in the associations; however, it is defined by the season regardless of the associated proportions.

  • Time separation cow-calf and social behavior of holstein heifer weanling

    • Authors: María Guadalupe Torres Cardona, José Isidro Alejos de la Fuente, Francisco Aurelio Galindo Maldonado, Martín Amador Meza Nieto, Miguel Angel Silva Salas
      Pages: 38 - 45
      Abstract: The long-term effect of mother-calf separation in dairy cattle has been little studied, even when it has been found that this effect has profound repercussions on the behavior and physiology of both mother and breeding in the short term (few hours after separation). Therefore, in this research, the social behavior of 30 Holstein heifer weanlings (78 ± 10 kg weight and 79 ± 7 days old), separated from their mothers at 24 h post-partum (T1) or immediately after delivery (T2), was studied during seven weeks. The separation time cow-calf did not affect the range of social hierarchy breeding in the seven weeks after post-weaning, since no significant difference was found neither in the index shift (IDO) and success rate (IDE) nor in the behavioral variables. However, some authors indicate that this effect can be displayed in adulthood once the young have reached sexual maturity, so more research is needed.

  • Technical and socioeconomic characteristics of beekeeping Mayan
           communities in Yucatan Coastal Center

    • Authors: Lucely Carminia Contreras-Uc, Miguel Ángel Magaña-Magaña, José R. Sanginés-García
      Pages: 44 - 86
      Abstract: Beekeeping in the Maya region of Yucatan is an ancient activity that has undergone several transformations from replacing the stingless bee to production surplus for the market. The purpose of this study was to characterize the main technical variables and socio-economic associated with beekeeping to small scale. Information was obtained from field using a survey by statistical sampling stratified, the strata considered were producers with up to 25 hives, 26 to 50 and 51 to 100. It was found that the beekeepers have advanced age and limited schooling; they practice the activity in a complementary way and have a limited group organization. The widespread practices of handling of the hives are artificial feeding, change of Queens, change of honeycombs and division of the colonies. After analyze the three components, economic is the biggest impact on the tenure of hives.

  • Adaptation of the agricultural sector to climate change: proposal for
           measures at a fine spatial scale in Guasave, Sinaloa, Mexico

    • Authors: Ramiro Ahumada-Cervantes, Gilberto Velázquez-Angulo, Brenda Ahumada-Cervantes
      Pages: 46 - 56
      Abstract: Climate change (CC) currently experienced by the planet is a reality. Agriculture, an important activity for income generation and for food production, could be one of the primary activities most affected by this phenomenon. In this regard, the adaptation of this sector becomes a key tool to reduce its vulnerability to CC. In this way, knowing the agricultural vulnerability of the municipality of Guasave, Sinaloa to CC, 11 measures for adaptation at the level of rural basic geostatistical area (rural BGA) are proposed. In addition to this, based on the analysis of certain government plans and programs, including objectives and lines of action aimed at improving the quality of life of the Mexican population, some government supports that could be useful for the implementation of the proposed adaptation measures were identified.

  • Analysis of residual stresses in the Roll Hemming Process using the
           Barkhausen Magnetic Noise

    • Authors: Pablo Alberto Limon Leyva, Eduardo Aguilera Gómez, Héctor Plascencia Mora, Elías Rigoberto Ledesma Orozco, Antonio de Jesús Balvantín García, José Angel Diosdado De la Peña
      Pages: 57 - 63
      Abstract: Hemming is a manufacturing process, consisting on folding a sheet metal onto itself or another sheet metal. In this work, Magnetic Barkhausen Noise (MBN) was implemented for the identification of residual stresses and their variations through the stages of Roll Hemming process. Initially, the inspection process over hemmed ASTM A36 specimens is detailed. For this study, a S6519 probe was selected to perform measurements at 5 different regions on the specimens’ edges, obtaining average values of intensity of MBN for each stage of Roll Hemming process. The variation of the obtained results was identified and discussed. Finally, the analysis of the absence or presence of residual stresses and their effect on the magnetic behavior of the material is presented. Obtained results allow us to determine the feasibility of MBN implementation for the inspection of hemmed parts in production lines.

  • An epistemological obstacle to the study of technology

    • Authors: Miguel Ángel Hernández Briseño
      Pages: 64 - 76
      Abstract: This paper argues that the study on the phenomenon of technology is an area of research that the humanities and social sciences should study. However, the social and humanistic study of technology is often obstructed by various epistemological obstacles that emerge in the course of the investigation. Then, one of these epistemological obstacles is presented in greater depth: the diversity of currents of study of the technological phenomenon, proceeding with the identification of those same currents. Finally, the need for an emerging framework that offers a pluralistic epistemology and integrates the presented currents is provided so that the phenomenon of the diversity of perspectives, instead of representing an obstacle, becomes an additional tool in the humanistic and social study of technology.

  • Mexico’s national innovation system. A comparative analysis with
           Spain and the United States

    • Authors: Karla S. Trejo Berumen, Alba E. Gámez, Fernando Conesa Cegarra, Manuel Ángeles Villa, Antonia Ivanova Boncheva, Luis Felipe Beltrán Morales
      Pages: 87 - 98
      Abstract: This paper presents an analysis of the national innovation systems of Mexico, Spain and the United States, using the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s methodology on this subject, in order to study the differences and similarities of the three countries and to identify their strengths and weaknesses. The purpose is to recognize the different maturation levels of the national innovation systems of countries with different levels of economic development, that can be used as experience for the Mexican case to correct or promote current public innovation policies and clarify their path in this area. An articulated, balanced national innovation system, with firms which possess a high technological absorption capacity, can promote the economic and social growth of a country.
