We studied the activity of the digestive enzymes, qualitative composition, and bacteria genera ratio in the intestinal chyme of carp Cyprinus carpio and sterlet Acipenser ruthenus grown on an artificial diet in cage culture. It was shown that the inclusion of live bacteria Bacillus subtilis in the probiotic ProStor had a positive impact on the size and the structure of the microbial community in intestinal chyme, on the activity of some digestive enzymes, and on the digestibility and the weight gain of carp and sterlet. The total amount of micro-organisms in the carp chyme was by 13% higher and in sterlet it was 3.5 times higher in the experimental groups compared to the control. In the studied species of fish, the increase in the activity of digestive enzymes was accompanied by the decrease in nitrogen, ammonia, and urea. Presumably, it happened because of better absorption of protein and more intensive use of nitrogen metabolites by intestinal microflora for the synthesis of their own biomass. The average daily weight gain of carp and sterlet was 25 and 35% higher, respectively, in the experimental groups than in the control. © 2017, Pleiades Publishing, Ltd.

The paper evaluates the risk of agricultural farms in Russian Orel region by using the modified Markowitz portfolio theory. We analyse individual farm data of agricultural animal and crop production with respect to yield, price and revenue agricultural risk. Farms included in the analyses represent four organizational legal forms and the range of agricultural products produced by these farms is wide. Therefore the research focused on the grain and milk production only. Over the period 2010 to 2014 the effects of Russian ban on import of agricultural products from EU can be observed in form of increased price level of individual commodity prices. Risk and return are negatively related and investors are comparing the risk with profitability. The same stands for farmers. They select the type of production based on expected return. The result show that the systemic yield, price and revenue risk of grain production is higher when compared to milk production. This is due the nature of animal and crop production. Climate and weather risk has much lower effect on animal production when compared to crop production. Therefore the overall risk of crop production is higher. But farmers consider the risk not isolated but in relation to profitability. The profitability of crop production is higher as in Orel region more than 90% of agricultural production is not animal related and farms are profitable with and also without subsidies. Our empirical study shows that in case of equal expected profitability animal production is more profitable for the farmer as it is linked to lower yield, price and revenue risk. © 2016 Potravinarstvo.

Molecular methods were used to study variation in the taxonomic structure of bacterial, archaeal, and fungal communities in soil samples taken along a salinity gradient from a solonchak in the vicinity of Lake Akkol' (Shingirlau, Kazakhstan). Soils from arable fields located 195 km from the solonchak served as the control. Total DNA was isolated from every sample and analyzed by T-RFLP and real-time PCR. Salinization was found to be the main ecological factor determining the structure of soil microbial community in the study region. The values of Simpson's index characterizing the diversity of this community proved to be similar in all the samples, which, however, significantly differed in the taxonomic composition of microorganisms. A significantly increased content of archaea was revealed in the sample with the highest salinity. The results of this study show that the structure of soil microbial community reflects specific features of a given soil and can be used as an indicator of its ecological state. © 2012 Pleiades Publishing, Ltd.

Crop breeding if aimed mainly at the highest productivity results in a significant loss of defense system activity thus causing a decreased plant resistance to adverse environment factors. Reasonably, more attention is now being paid to evolution base in breeding. With this, we studied the norm of reaction to environment changes in buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum Moench) cultivars and landraces as reflecting plant adaptation potential for photosynthesis and yield production to be further involved in breeding. A total of 11 buckwheat cultivars of which Kalininskaya, Bogatyr' and Shatilovskaya 5 have been derived in 1930-1970, and Chatyr-Tay, Batyr, Devyatka, Dizain, Demetra, Dikul' and Bashkirskaya krasnostebel'naya are the modern cultivars, together with landraces k-406 and k-1709 (VIR collection, St. Petersburg) were investigated. For the first time it was shown that in the course of buckwheat breeding no improvements in photosynthesis and production sustainability, as well as in homeostasis of grain formation have been achieved. Modern buckwheat cultivars possess high photosynthesis and productivity under favorable weather conditions, whereas at stresses do not have any significant advantage over their predecessors. In dry 2010 the seed production in modern cultivars was not reliably different from that in landraces and old cultivars, while in 2011-2013 at more favorable water supply and temperature it was on average 67.5 % higher, mostly due to the response of photosynthetic system to growing conditions. When drought occurred during the seed filling phase the photosynthetic activity in leaves decreased on average by 32.1 %, dry mass of the aboveground parts and seeds was lower by 46.7 % and 67.5 %, respectively, compared to those under favorable conditions in 2011-2013. With increasing water deficit the situation becomes worse. At soil moisture of 30 % of full capacity the activity of photosynthesis in buckwheat plant leaves was on average 4.4 times less, and seed production was 41.8 % less compared to the optimal moistening. At that, the losses were significantly higher in modern cultivars, e.g. in the k-1709 plants a 66.1 % decrease was found compared to 78.8 % in Dikul' and Dozhdik plants. Thus the obtained data suggests a low adaptive potential of modern buckwheat varieties. So we propose to improve the seed formation homeostasis in buckwheat plants. In this regard, the selection of autogamous form and the creation of self-pollinating varieties can be used as more effective approaches. The hybridization with F. homotropicum can significantly improve the viability of self-pollinated inbred lines of buckwheat, which can be successfully used in breeding programs to create autogamous varieties. Moreover, the adaptiveness of the of yield formation processes which are not sustainable enough to guarantee the high and sustainable crop production must be improved. An increased activity and effectiveness of photosynthesis and initial growth seem to be of interest. It is shown that the leaf photosynthetic rate in buckwheat varies plants varies widely from 4.65 to 17.8 μmol CO2 •m-2 • s-1, which allows to select forms both by hybridizing and using selection within a population.

Aiming at the vehicle power train, system dynamic optimization is profoundly studied based on the system torsional vibration characteristics analysis. First, based on the concentrated mass method, the general torsional vibration model of vehicle power train is established and solved after parameters' (inertia, stiffness, and damping) matrix and mathematic constraint conditions are acquired. Furthermore, both free vibration and forced vibration characteristics are analyzed. Second, the effects of the coupling stiffness on the dynamics behaviors of power train are thoroughly analyzed. The sensitivity analysis procedure is explored. And sensitivity models of both free and forced vibration feature parameters are deduced. Finally, dynamic optimization theory model and program are constructed based on genetic algorithm. The optimization results indicate that the proposed optimization method could contribute to the sharp attenuation of system torsional vibration. © SAGE Publications Ltd.

The development of novel potentiometric sensors for cobalt (II) ions in aqueous solutions is reported here. Cobalt-polymer composites have been used to produce cobalt-selective membranes. Analytical characteristics of the proposal sensors have been determined. Morphological investigation allows revealing the formation of the endless conductive cluster in the threshold area of cobalt metal concentrations. The existence of such a structural unit makes possible the usage of the elaborated composites as a sensitive membrane for ion-selective electrodes. Results obtained from X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy prove the formation of cobalt-polymer complexes in these composites. Strong cobalt-polymer interaction is detected by the X-ray diffraction method. Metal - polymer complexes determine the electrochemical properties of the composite ion-selective membranes. Composite cobalt-selective electrodes can find application in a chemical or ecological monitoring for the presence of Co (II) ions. © 2011 IEEE.
