The program developed by Russian specialists of the North-Caucasian Scientific Research Institute of Gardening and Viticulture (Russian Agricultural Academy, Krasnodar) allows to select cultures, horticultural crops and other agricultural specimen the most profitable for a given locality. The development was supported by the Russian Foundation for Basic Research and the Fund for Assistance to Small Innovative Enterprises (FASIE). If the program’s advice is used competently, there will be no need to complain about bad harvest due to caprices of nature and due to soil and climatic predilections of various fruit cultures, first of all those of the drupaceous - apricot, peach, sweet cherries and others.
The computer-based approach developed by the Kuban horticulturists allows to evaluate whether a certain fruit culture or specimen is fitted for the given locality and to secure them against caprices of weather. The enormous data bank, computer maps and a geographic information system to handle them, created by scientists from Krasnodar, Moscow, Obninsk with partial support of the Russian Foundation for Basic Research and Fund for Assistance to Small Innovative Enterprises (FASIE) will safeguard gardening farms from global losses even in the leanest years.
They will actually protect them form the very notion of bad harvest, because they help to choose the best cultures and specimen of fruit-trees fitting for planting in the local climate and soil. They do it in such a way that some specimen of fruit-trees will serve a peculiar insurance for horticulturists in case of bad harvest of others. “As a matter of fact, this is very simple, says Irina Dragavtseva, project manager, you only need to know and take into account the requirements of cultures and specimen towards environment conditions and capabilities. And then – locate the cultures in the optimal way.”

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.
For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...
What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.
To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
