Construction of a cow model as a proxy for electronic sensor tests

In modern livestock farming, electronics attached to an animal play a significant role. In this field of science, animals are equipped with electronics to measure a wide range of parameters. In the case of cattle, the electronics are attached to... continue reading

agricolaeplotr: An R package for visualising experimental designs in science and engineering

Experimental designs are widely used in the life sciences to substantiate hypotheses through experiments. In the life sciences, this is an indispensable part of gaining scientific knowledge. In addition, open source software is increasingly used... continue reading

Agrimath - Mathematical Proof of Methods Used in Agricultural Sciences

Scientific publications in peer-reviewed journals represent the backbone of science, because information in this medium ideally passes through a review process and is released for publication after peer review. This increases credibility, as a... continue reading

Publication of conference lightning talks in scientific journals shown on a exemplary lightning talk about nomograms

Lightning Talks have become a popular format at conferences. Within five minutes, a topic is presented that meets scientific standards. In this time, information can be presented that is also contained in papers. In many scientific fields,... continue reading

Pattern Mining in Grassland Science

This article presents ideas on how pattern mining can be applied in grassland science, where there is a high demand for rule pattern recognition, evaluation, and selection. In principle, vegetation data are well suited for pattern mining because... continue reading

Open Source Animal Tracking Device for Cattle

Grazing plays a central role in nature conservation, for example, grazing animals preserve biodiversity in the stand and the animals' droppings provide a habitat for insects. The development of animal-guided grazing requires geodata enriched with... continue reading

Application of design of experiment methods from the industrial environment to crop science and medicine

In all scientific and engineering disciplines, the design of experiment is used to create experimental plans. Particularly in industrial experimentation, methods are available that are hardly or not at all used in agriculture. For example, the... continue reading
