This publication is designed to help you learn more about agricultural cooperatives or to help you think through the process of organizing and
operating such a business. While the focus is on creating a new
cooperative, many of the ideas may be of interest to those thinking
about reorganizing or...
This investigation was motivated by the apparent increase in genetic
variability resulting from the systematic combining of gene pools
represented by winter and spring types of wheats.
It was the objective of this study to provide information regarding
the nature of this genetic variability for nine agronomic characters
A key challenge for resource and land managers is predicting the consequences of climate warming on streamflow and water
resources. During the last century in the western United States, significant reductions in snowpack and earlier snowmelt have led
to an increase in the fraction of annual streamflow during winter and...
Pacific Northwest vegetable and fruit growers always have faced changing
markets. To many growers, these changes have seemed faster than usual in recent years, fueled by shifting consumer preferences, increasing production costs, and new market logistics. The number of processing plants in the region continues to decline. Typically, plant closures...
Air passing upward through the tropical tropopause is “marked” by an annually varying water vapor mixing ratio much as a tape recorder marks a magnetic tape; as the air ascends in the tropical stratosphere, these marks are effaced by a combination of vertical diffusion within the tropics and dilution of...
University deployed two arrays of three sonobuoys over the Blanco
fracture zone and two arrays of four sonobuoys over the Gorda ridge
to detect and locate microearthquakes. Microearthquake activity predicted
by plate tectonic theory for the Blanco fracture zone and Gorda
ridge was observed by these arrays to originate from...
Turbulent mixing across adjacent subchannels in packed rod
bundles was studied using conductivity measurement and sodium
chloride solution as the tracer. Single phase water was the fluid
The packed rod bundles were seven stainless steel tubes,
1.905 cm in diameter and 152.4 cm long, arranged in hexagonal close-packed
This paper addresses the order-picking problem in a warehouse
and establishes some criteria for the planning, design, and improvement
of a warehouse layout to increase the order-picking efficiency.
A simulation model has been developed to study the effect of
warehouse layout on the order-picking throughput. Three major design
Effective two-body interactions were obtained from
realistic nucleon-nucleon potentials and applications made
in calculations of ground state properties of even-even N=Z light nuclei. The admixture of high momentum states into
the nuclear wavefunction caused by the strong, short-range
repulsion of the two-nucleon force was taken into account
by making a...
