Seed conditioning removes undesirable material including debris and stray seeds from selected raw harvested seed, so as to create planting seed that delivers high yielding crops. This two-volume set provides a major up-date of previously published work. It describes the essential information needed to understand this process and the machinery involved. It describes the machines available to seed conditioners and explains how they can be installed, operated, adjusted, and maintained to give complete and precise separations for many years.
All the machines are described in sufficient detail, sometimes with the help of models to enable the conditioner to get good results. The book also details the operating sequence used to properly prepare seed before going into each machine.
Organized in a logical sequence, it catalogs all the entire field of seed conditioning, to help seed managers, specialists, and conditioning operators reduce loss of good seed while improving seed quality and honing the efficiency of their operations.
Globally there has been a marked increase in both the frequency and cost of natural disasters occurring due to geological, hydrological and meteorological causes. According to the United States National Academy of Sciences losses caused by natural disasters have quadrupled in the last twenty years. This book, conceived as a technical manual deals with various aspects of geohazards - using photogeology and remote sensing. It is unique in that the succinct text supports the illustrations, and is aimed at geoscience professionals and university students, devised as a quick-reference standardized presentation of 170 globally occurring photo-geomorphological units derived from a comprehensive image-resolvable and ordered genetic classification of geounits. The selected geounits are uniquely classed and identified as either agents of, or susceptible to, one or more of the 14 general types of geohazards. The data set of each geounit systematically integrates characterizing graphics, ground- and air- perspective photos to introduce interpreted aerospace mono/stereoscopic photos and images demonstrating their detectability and mappability.
