  • Estimation of the Required Bio-fuels Substituting Petroleum-based Fuels in
           Vehicles in the Island of Crete, Greece

    • Authors: John Vourdoubas
      Abstract: The required bio-fuels for substituting petroleum-based fuels in vehicles in the island of Crete, Greece have been estimated. The quantities of gasoline and diesel oil currently used in vehicles in Crete as well as their GHG emissions have been calculated. The quantities of bio-ethanol and bio-diesel substituting 14% of them, according to the EU goal for 2030, have been evaluated. The necessary land area for cultivating energy crops producing the required bio-fuels has been also calculated. The total quantity of gasoline and diesel oil used in vehicles in 2020 in Crete has been estimated at 273,231 tons while their CO2 emissions at 886,702 tons. The bio-ethanol required for substituting 14% of the annual gasoline consumption has been calculated at 29,709 tons while the bio-diesel required for substituting 14% of the annual diesel oil consumption at 24,802 tons. The necessary land area cultivated with sugar beet producing the abovementioned quantity of bio-ethanol has been estimated at 7,427 ha while the necessary land area cultivated with rape seed producing the abovementioned quantity of bio-diesel has been estimated at 24,802 ha. The overall necessary land area, at 32,229 ha, corresponds at 3.81% of the total area in Crete. Energy crops have not been cultivated so far in Crete while the land availability is limited. It is proposed that apart from using bio-fuels in conventional vehicles equipped with ICEs different options for reducing GHG emissions in transportation, including the use of electric vehicles, should be considered in Crete.

  • Selectivity of Herbicides Applied in Preemergence and Diuron in
           Postemergence for Sesame

    • Authors: Valdinei Sofiatti; Augusto GF Costa, Sidnei D Cavalieri, Lucas S Martins, Cássio L Pereira, Thiago RB Silva, Vilmar V Clemente
      Abstract: The expansion of sesame growth has led to one of the biggest challenges in weed management mainly due to the limited options of selective herbicides for the control of eudicots species. This study aimed to evaluate the selectivity of diuron, s-metolachlor or imazethapyr herbicide treatments in isolation, or in a tank mixture, when applied in preemergence only, or association with diuron herbicide sprayed in postemergence during sesame cultivation. Two experiments were carried out under Brazilian Cerrado conditions. In the first experiment, different doses (g ha-1) of diuron (500 and 750), s-metolachlor (480 and 960) and imazethapyr (40 and 80) were applied in preemergence in isolation or in a tank mixture. In the second experiment, doses (g ha-1) of the herbicides diuron (500 and 750) and s-metolachlor (480 and 720) were applied in preemergence isolated or in tank mixture, associated or not with diuron (500 g ha-1) in postemergence. The results indicated that diuron and s-metolachlor applied in isolation or in combination during preemergence are selective to the sesame crop up to the doses of 750 g ha-1 and 720 g ha-1, respectively, and when applied in association with diuron at a dose of 500 g ha-1 in postemergence are also selective for sesame crop.

  • Long-Acting Moxidectin for the Control of Gastrointestinal Nematodes in
           Preweaned Beef Calves in Tropical Areas

    • Authors: Guilherme Henrique Reckziegel; Mario Henrique Conde, Mariana Green de Freitas, Matheus Takemi Muchon Nakatani, Dyego Gonçalves Lino Borges, Elio Moro, Fernando de Almeida Borges
      Abstract: Gastrointestinal nematodes (GINs) in beef calves in the preweaning period can be an underestimated problem, and an adequate control program can result in increased productivity. In the current scenario of anthelmintic resistance, clinical studies with highly effective molecules with a prolonged period of action can contribute to the development of technologies applied in the field. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of a 10% moxidectin formulation (10%MOX), administered to calves aged 4–5 months, in the control of gastrointestinal nematodes and weight gain until the time of weaning. The study was divided into 2 stages. The first stage was carried out on a farm, with a randomized block design based on fecal egg counts (FEC), live weight, number of calvings of the mother, breed of the calves, and pickets. In the second stage, the study was repeated on 10 other farms, following a completely randomized design, to confirm the results obtained in the first stage. In all experiments there was a treated group and a placebo group. In the first stage, the effectiveness of 10%MOX in the FECRT performed on the 38th day post-treatment was 98.49%, and the treated animals still had lower FEC averages and a 9.4 kg increase in weight at weaning compared to those from the placebo group. In the second stage, the average increase in weight gain was 6.1 kg, confirming the results of the first stage. The study demonstrated effective control of GINs and improvement in the productive performance of calves treated in the preweaning phase, using 10% moxidectin.
