Morris, Minnesota The purpose of Global TempSIM is to estimate daily maximum and minimum air temperatures for a yearly cycle at any location on the globe. Global TempSIM predicts the daily average air temperature based upon 30-yr (1961 – 1990) temperature records that were compiled and interpolated by Legates and Willmott (1990a and 1990b) with further improvements by Willmott and Matsuura (1995) Global TempSIM, air temperature, software
Study of high yielding peanut and mechanization of peanut Research Institute of Oil and Oil Plant In the irrigation area of Tay Ninh province in the Eastern region of South Viet Nam in winter-spring (from November to February), peanut variety L9803-8 (Spanish, pod yield 3700 kg/ha) and variety VD01-2 (Spanish, pod yield 3540 kg/ha) were harvested. For comparison a local control,LY, had a pod yield of 3210 kg/ha. The yield increase over control for L9803-8 was 15%, and the yield increase over control for VD01-2 was 10%. high yielding peanut, plant seeder, peanut combined harvester
