The aims of this study were to evaluate forage production and nutritional quality of the elephant grass, leucaena and pigeon pea beans, grown in monocrop or in intercropping systems in Cerrado/Pantanal ecotones in both, dry and rainy, seasons. Experimental design was completely randomized with five treatments and five repetitions. The treatments were: elephant grass, leucaena and pigeon pea all of these in monocrop; intercropping elephant grass with Leucaena; intercropping elephant grass with pigeon pea. During the rainy season, it was carried out three cuts at intervals of 60 days, and in the dry season a single cut with 180 days. In the rainy season, the biomass produced of the forages elephant grass, leucaena and pigeon pea corresponded respectively to 72, 64, 76% of the annual production. Under intercropping system, fodder behaves similarly, with the average of 72% of annual production. During this period, the nutritional quality of the forages was also higher than the dry season. In the dry period, there was decreased the production of biomass and a reduction in the proportion of leaves in all the forage, regardless of cultivation system. In both seasons (rainy and dry), the forage grown under intercropping system showed higher dry matter production in relation to monocrop system, with most of this production coming of elephant grass. The intercropping elephant grass with the pigeon pea has the highest production of dry matter, while the intercropping elephant grass with Leucaena has better nutritional quality. © 2017, Universidade Federal de Uberlandia.

Background: There is a lack of questionnaires in Brazilian Portuguese to evaluate patient-reported lower limb function. Objective: To translate, cross-culturally adapt to the Brazilian population, and evaluate the psychometric properties of the Lower Extremity Functional Scale (LEFS). Method: The LEFS was translated by two independent assessors and back-translated to English. Then, the LEFS-Brazil was tested on 20 patients who answered the questionnaire in the cross-cultural adaptation phase. For the evaluation of the psychometric properties, 100 patients answered the questionnaire. The reliability was tested by two independent assessors. The Medical Outcomes Study 36-item from Health Survey (SF-36) was used as the criterion method for construct validity. The sensitivity to change was tested for four consecutive weeks. Results: The internal consistency was α=0.96. The intra-observer reliability was CCI (intraclass correlation coefficient)=0.96 and CCI interobserver=0.98; the Bland and Altman mean difference (d) intra-observer=-1.52 and d interobserver=0.46. The correlation between the LEFS and SF-36 in the first week was the following: physical function r=0.82, physical role r=0.57, emotional role r=0.43 and mental health r=0.33. The LEFS was responsive when comparing the mean of the first week to the second, third and fourth weeks and comparing the second to the fourth week. The cut-off point was 11, and the area under the receiving operator curve was 0.96 95% CI [0.88;0.99], with sensitivity=0.96, 1-specificity=0 and standard error=0.02. Conclusion: The LEFS-Brazil is reliable, valid and responsive.

Glyphosate is the main herbicide used worldwide and is recommended for the control of weeds in various crops. In spraying with winds of 2 m s-1, glyphosate drift can reach up to 160 m beyond the target site, which is considered as harmful to the neighboring crops. The objective of this study was to evaluate the dry matter and nutrient content of common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) cv. Pérola subjected to glyphosate drift. The experiment was conducted in a greenhouse at the State University of North Fluminense Darcy Ribeiro - UENF, Campos dos Goytacazes - RJ using the common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) cv. Pérola, on a Quartzipsamment and a Paleudalf Tb . The experiment was arranged in a randomized block design in a 4 x 2 factorial scheme with four replications, with the first factor comprising the subdoses of 0 , 14.4, 43.2 and 86.4 g ha-1 acid equivalent (e.a) of glyphosate in the form of ammonium salt applied 25 days after sowing (V4 stage) and the second factor consisting of the two soils. Glyphosate drift reduced dry mass of branches and shoots at 20 days after application (DAA), the content of nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), potassium (K), magnesium (Mg) and sulfur (S) at 10 DAA and N, P, Ca and Mg at 20 DAA of common bean cv. Pearl.

The influence of doses of KCl applied via soil and via leaf axil on the leaf nutrient concentration in green dwarf coconut tree (Cocos nucifera L.) was evaluated. The experiment was conducted in a commercial orchard in Campos dos Goytacazes, Brazil, in a Typic Quartzipsamments, from May 31, 2007 to May 31, 2008, using a randomized complete block design with five treatments and sixteen replicates. Treatments consisted of two application modes (on soil and on the axil of the leaf number nine) and two levels of KCl (1666 and 3333 g of KCl per plant, per year) level 1 and 2 for soil and (833 and 1666 g per plant, per year) level 1 and 2 in for plant axil, with three month interval applications), besides a control, without KCl. Leaf samples were collected before the first fertilization and three months after each fertilization. Application of KCl increased leaf concentrations of K and Cl and reduced Mg concentration in plant tissue. Leaf concentrations of N; P; Ca; S; B; Cu; Fe; Mn and Zn were not influenced by the treatments. The application of foliar potassium allows greater absorption of this nutrient by plants. The foliar application minimizes losses and can reduce the quantity of potassium fertilizer applied.

Abstract Objective The aim of this study was to perform a histomorphometric evaluation of the repair process in rat teeth replanted after root canals were filled with calcium hydroxide (CH) and mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA). Design Upper right incisors were extracted from 30 rats divided into three groups (n = 10). The teeth were stored dry for 60 min, after which the pulp and periodontal ligament (PDL) were removed and immersed in acidulated-phosphate sodium fluoride solution. In Group I, the root canals were filled with saline; in Group II, they were filled with CH; and in Group III, they were filled with CH, and the foramen was sealed with an MTA plug. The teeth were replanted, and the animals were sacrificed after 60 days. The sections with teeth were removed for histological preparation (haematoxylin and eosin, H&E). The characteristics of the PDL, cementum, dentine, and alveolar bone, as well as the occurrence of inflammatory and replacement root resorption and apical sealing, were subjected to histological and morphometric analysis (P < 0.05). Results Group I was the most affected by root resorption (mean = 67.05%). In Groups II and III, the resorption averaged 42.2% and 11.7%, respectively. Group III was less affected by inflammatory resorption and presented more areas of apical sealing by mineralized tissue (P < 0.05). Conclusion An apical MTA plug improved the repair of the replanted tooth by decreasing surface resorption and repairing mineralized tissue in the periapical region. © 2015 Elsevier Ltd.

Flexibility is a key component of physical fitness. It has been suggested that measures of physical fitness components may vary throughout the day. The aim of this study was to analyse the effects of the time of day on flexibility performance. 26 men (mean age=25.4 years, SD=2.5) were evaluated by hip flexion on kinematic analysis and also by an absolute score in the modified Sit-and-Reach test during a repeated measure design. This was done during 3 experimental sessions, which took place at 8:00a.m., 1:00p.m. and 6:00p.m., in random order. All subjects were previously familiarized with the test parameters. There was a diurnal variation only in the modified Sit-and-Reach test score between 8:00 a.m and 6:00p.m. (P=0.01). There was no significant difference in the hip kinematic analysis between hours. These findings suggest that flexibility performance in the modified Sit-and-Reach test, in absolute scores, is affected by the time of day, with higher performance in the evening. © 2011 Georg Thieme Verlag KG Stuttgart.

The urease inhibitor NBPT(N-(n-butyl) thiophosphoric triamide) is a management alternative to increase urea efficiency in topdressing because it reduces NH3 volatilization. The objective of this study was to evaluate N recovery and yield performance of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) 'BRS 254' fertilized with different urea or urea + NBPT rates in topdressing. The experiment was conducted from May to September 2007 in Viçosa, Minas Gerais, Brazil. Treatments followed a 5 × 2 + 1 factorial design consisting of five N fertilizer rates (30, 60, 90, 120, and 150 kg ha-1) as urea or urea + NBPT (Agrotain®) applied as topdressing and a control without N. The experiment was a randomized complete block design with four replicates. Adding NBPT to urea resulted in better N utilization by wheat plants. The 100 kg N ha-1 topdressing rate provided the best apparent N recovery by wheat plants, whereas 90 kg ha-1 provided the best N use efficiency.

NBPT (N-(n-butyl) thiophosphoric triamide), a urease inhibitor, has been reported as one of the most promising compounds to maximize urea nitrogen use in agricultural systems. The objective of this study was to evaluate the performance of irrigated wheat fertilized with urea or urea + NBPT as single or split application. The experiment was conducted from June to October 2006 in Viçosa, MG, Brazil. The experimental design followed a 2×2 factorial scheme, in which urea or urea + NBPT were combined with two modes of application: full dose at sowing (60kg ha-1) or split (20kg ha-1 at sowing + 40kg ha-1 as topdressing at tillering), in randomized blocks with ten replications. The split application of nitrogen fertilization does not improve the yield wheat under used conditions. The use of urease inhibitor improves the grain yield of wheat crop when urea is applied in topdressing at tillering, but its use does not promote difference when urea is applied in the furrow at planting.

The purpose of this study was to compare the multifidus electromyographic activity in healthy women during the performance of the same Pilates exercise under 2 conditions.Sixteen healthy, active, female practitioners of Pilates (mean age, 24.3; SD, 3.1 years) were assessed through surface electromyography during 2 Pilates exercises (swan dive and breast stroke). Muscle activity during the experimental tasks was recorded with 1 pair of electrodes placed bilaterally on the multifidi. Data were normalized to maximal activity recorded during dynamic activity.The mean of the maximal isometric voluntary contraction was 662.4 N (SD, 195). In the phase comparison, the multifidus was the most recruited on the concentric phase during both exercises, ball (P=.001) and reformer (P=.001). In the comparison between conditions, the reformer presented more activation on swan dive (P=.04) and breast stroke (P=.001). The percentages of muscle activation varied between 50% and 60%, and the greatest activation was made on the reformer condition.The findings of this study show that Pilates exercises by healthy women, under different conditions, can cause changes to the multifidus muscle activation. The condition and the phase in which the muscle was more activated were the reformer and concentric phase, respectively, for both exercises. However, the results for the percentages of activation suggest that the intensity of recruitment may not be sufficient to strengthen muscle in healthy, trained subjects.
