Actualmente está recibiendo mucha atención debido a sus aplicaciones industriales, en las áreas biomédica, agrícola, alimentos, industria química, etc. En la industria de los alimentos se le aprecia con mucho interés, debido a sus múltiples actividades biológicas y a sus interesantes propiedades funcionales. En el área agrícola el quitosano es muy útil para ser utilizado como potenciador del crecimiento radicular de las plantas, como agente antimicrobiano para combatir patógenos en los suelos, como un gel controlador del deterioro de los productos post cosecha durante su almacenamiento y durante el proceso de exportación y en la elaboración de cubiertas de fertilizantes para su&nbsp; liberación controlada.</p> <p>En el área biomédica tiene interesantes usos como por ejemplo en tratamiento de quemaduras, como cubierta de fármacos para su liberación controlada y en el secuestramiento de grasas para el control de la obesidad, es también un potenciador del aparato inmunológico. En el área industrial tiene importantes aplicaciones como por ejemplo su uso como clarificante de vinos, en el proceso de tratamiento de aguas y efluentes contaminados por la actividad minera, y también para fijar colorantes en la industria textil.</p> Jose Luis Bauer León Faustino Villegas Antonio Zucchetti Copyright (c) 2022 South Florida Journal of Environmental and Animal Science 2022-04-01 2022-04-01 2 2 37 45 10.53499/sfjeasv2n2-001 Practical application of the PGRCC in constructions in the city of Recife https://southfloridapublishing.com/ojs/index.php/sfjeas/article/view/1345 <p>The importance of civil construction for the global economy with multiplier effects is indisputable, generating, for each direct employment, at least four indirect ones, bringing positive effects to the trade balance of the countries (ABIKO et al, 2005), however, it is considered as a which accounts for 50% of the CO<sub>2</sub> released into the atmosphere and approximately half of the solid waste generated in the world.</p> <p>In Brazil, in order to improve waste management, specific legislation was created through CONAMA Resolution 307/2002 and Law 12,305 / 2010, bringing, among others, the Integrated Program for the Management of Construction Waste and Rationalization of Production Processes, inducing a improving the quality of life of the population by controlling pollution and contamination of air, water and soil caused by inadequate removal, treatment and final disposal of solid wastes.</p> Elisabeth Maria Ferreira Severo Hipólito José Campos de Sousa Copyright (c) 2022 South Florida Journal of Environmental and Animal Science 2022-04-05 2022-04-05 2 2 46 54 10.53499/sfjeasv2n2-002 Agroecología y soberanía alimentaria en marcha: una experiencia de extensión en instituciones educativas https://southfloridapublishing.com/ojs/index.php/sfjeas/article/view/1354 <p>La experiencia surgió desde la cátedra de Extensión Rural, UNRC para fomentar la articulación entre la universidad e instituciones educativas. Desde un enfoque participativo, se realizaron diagnósticos y talleres en torno a la agroecología y la seguridad y soberanía alimentaria. El proyecto de extensión se desarrolló en tres escuelas de Rio Cuarto, desde mayo del 2019 a mayo del 2020. Participaron docentes y estudiantes de la UNRC y escuelas; integrantes del INTA, la ONG ASOPROVIDA, el Observatorio de DDHH, la Secretaría de Cultura y Educación de la Municipalidad y de CaLiSa. Se armaron huertas agroecológicas en las escuelas, lográndose redes de intercambio de verduras y plantines. Los aprendizajes fueron significativos para todos los participantes ya que esta experiencia de trabajo colaborativo permitió conectarse con las necesidades del territorio y complementar la formación de los futuros profesionales fomentando la participación y el compromiso social.</p> Heguiabehere Amparo Porporato Andrea Barbeito Azul Bruno Carla Turello Andrea Copyright (c) 2022 South Florida Journal of Environmental and Animal Science 2022-04-06 2022-04-06 2 2 55 62 10.53499/sfjeasv2n2-003 (Re)significando la extensión rural desde la practica docente https://southfloridapublishing.com/ojs/index.php/sfjeas/article/view/1372 <p>Desde la docencia e investigación en la Extensión Rural nos hemos problematizado por la distancia que se plantea entre lo que entendemos por extensión quienes “enseñamos” y entre quienes “aprenden”. La extensión es uno de los pilares de la universidad pública, sin embargo, a lo largo de su historia ha sido relegada en relación a la investigación y docencia. Nos propusimos re significar el rol que como docentes asumimos a la hora de “enseñar extensión” y el alcance que esto implica en la formación de los Ingenieros Agrónomos como futuros extensionistas. En este sentido, el objetivo del trabajo fue analizar la concepción de extensión que poseen los estudiantes y graduados y la importancia que le dan en su formación como profesionales. Para esto, realizamos entrevistas semiestructuradas a los estudiantes y a Ingenieros Agrónomos que se desempeñan en ámbitos públicos y privados preguntando ¿Qué es la extensión? ¿Cuáles son sus objetivos? ¿Es importante para el desarrollo profesional? Como resultados obtuvimos que la extensión para los estudiantes es un medio para extender los conocimientos a los productores con el fin de llegar con la innovación tecnológica. Entre los graduados, aparecen diferencias de conceptualización según pertenezcan laboralmente al ámbito privado o público. Para los primeros, la extensión es transferir conocimiento remarcando rasgos como eficiencia, marketing y venta con el fin de que se adopten las nuevas tecnologías; esto se contrapone a la extensión como proceso de aprendizaje que busca el desarrollo integral de los agricultores planteados por quienes trabajan en el sector público. Finalmente, y en relación a la importancia de la extensión se observó que existe una desvalorización cuando son estudiantes, hecho que se revierte cuando ejercen su actividad profesional. En conclusión, la extensión no debe ser entendida desde una mirada de transferencia, sino desde un sentido crítico, un encuentro de saberes y de compromiso concreto con las diversas problemáticas sociales en una relación dialógica con los sectores más vulnerables de la comunidad en la que estamos insertos. En este panorama la extensión junto con la docencia e investigación, tendrían que converger en un eje esencial y transversal desarrollando en los futuros profesionales las inquietudes y habilidades necesarias para trabajar con actores del medio social y no sólo para ellos. Solo desde la formación de nuestros futuros extensionistas podremos re significar la extensión.</p> Andrea Porporato Amparo Heguiabehere Azul Barbeito Carla Bruno Andrea Turello Copyright (c) 2022 South Florida Journal of Environmental and Animal Science 2022-04-13 2022-04-13 2 2 63 70 10.53499/sfjeasv2n2-004 Impacto ambiental en la zona sur-oriental de Guanahacabibes, Cuba, producto de la intrusión marina https://southfloridapublishing.com/ojs/index.php/sfjeas/article/view/1404 <p>La Zona Sur-Oriental de la Península de Guanahacabibes abarca desde Manuel Lazo hasta Cortés. Posee un relieve llano y de cotas muy bajas, actividad cársica y acuífero abierto al mar, con un lente muy fino de agua dulce y escurrimiento superficial tendiente a cero. Sus aguas subterráneas están afectadas severamente por el fenómeno de Intrusión marina. Este trabajo resalta el impacto ambiental directo de esta salinidad en la salud humana. Se enfatiza en el aumento considerable de Enfermedades Crónicas Renales en la población de esta zona. Se concreta la depreciación cuantiosa en los rendimientos de varios cultivos de alta demanda. Se muestran cifras cambiantes y diminutivas de especies de la fauna y la flora que atentan con alterar el equilibrio del ecosistema. Teniendo en cuenta las inquietudes de pobladores afectados directamente por enfermedades renales en más de un miembro de su familia, de productores e Instituciones Agrícolas con muy poco o ningún rendimiento en sus cosechas, de profesionales Forestales, del Ministerio de Recursos Hidráulicos, Instituciones ecológicas, se obtienen las bases para concretar el objetivo de este estudio en el que se respondieron las siguientes interrogantes:</p> <p>- ¿Que le está sucediendo al agua de la Cuenca Hidrográfica Guanahacabibes?</p> <p>- ¿Qué impacto tiene este problema en los habitantes, en las actividades agrícolas, en los ecosistemas?</p> <p>- ¿Se tiene conciencia sobre los efectos posibles ante la decisión de no intervención o de postergación a la solución que se necesita?</p> <p>-Demanda de Proyecto de Planta Potabilizadora o Desalinizadora en la región.</p> Yusberqui Fiallo Fernández Copyright (c) 2022 South Florida Journal of Environmental and Animal Science 2022-04-25 2022-04-25 2 2 71 86 10.53499/sfjeasv2n2-005 The choice of optimal technology for extracting wood greenery from forest dendromass https://southfloridapublishing.com/ojs/index.php/sfjeas/article/view/1405 <p>Forests and forest land in Bosnia and Herzegovina encompass an area of 3,231,500 ha out of which 1.28 mill. ha is in the Republika Srpska (RS) entity and the rest in the B&amp;H Federation entity. In the forests of RS each year are cut down around 2.94 mill. m<sup>3</sup> of dendromass. Of these, about 15-20% or 127,500 to 170,000 m<sup>3</sup> makes wood greenery - twigs with needles or leaves, with 10 mm diameter at thick end, measured with bark. Based on the experience of others, first of all from Russia, the Baltic and Scandinavian countries, it is known that wood greenery represents valued raw material in different sectors of economy: agriculture, pharmaceutical and cosmetics industry and others. The entire annual attack of wood greenery remains unused, with us. There are at least two reasons for this: a) because there are still no elaborated and proven practices of rational collection and concentration of raw materials to processing plants; and b) because we are not familiar enough with the methods of wood greenery processing. A detailed analysis of the technology of wood assortment production in our forestry practice has been carried out. Based on these findings, a model of integrated forest utilization was conceived, including wood greenery. Then, the technology of wood greenery processing were analyzed in the following sense: mechanical drying and fractionation processes, chemical extraction processes, thermal processes by classical heating and energy use of the microwave electromagnetic field and their combinations: mechanical-chemical methods and thermo-chemical methods. Finally, such technology of wood greenery processing has been selected to optimally matches with the integrated use of forest resources, in terms of the following criteria: minimal negative environmental impact, maximum safety at work, low energy consumption, primarily from renewable sources, maximum quality of final products.</p> Srđan Ljubojević Ladislav Vasilišin Goran Vučić Copyright (c) 2022 South Florida Journal of Environmental and Animal Science 2022-04-25 2022-04-25 2 2 87 101 10.53499/sfjeasv2n2-006 Vigilancia fitosanitaria para determinar la situación de 12 especies de insectos que pueden afectar al aguacate (Persea americana, Mill.) Cv. Hass en Guatemala https://southfloridapublishing.com/ojs/index.php/sfjeas/article/view/1418 <p>The Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Food -MAGA-, is developing this research to increase the markets to which the avocado cv. Hass can be exported, because one of the limitations to access the market are the pests that can affect the fruit, which are considered as quarantine pest. This study has been carried out in different commercial plantations to know the situation of the 12 pests that may be present, pests that were chosen by a target market, which are:<em> Heilipus lauri</em> Boheman, <em>Conotrachelus aguacatae</em> Barber, <em>Conotrachelus perseae</em> Barber, <em>Copturus aguacatae</em> Kissinger, <em>Stenoma catenifer</em> Walsingham, <em>Amorbia</em> sp., <em>Cryptaspasma</em> sp., <em>Euxoa sorella</em> Schaus<em>, Histura </em>sp<em>.</em>, <em>Holcocera </em>sp<em>.</em>, <em>Micrathetis triplex</em> Walker and<em> Netechma pyrrodelta</em> Meyrick<em>.</em> The sampling methodology is the one used by Mexico in Appendix C of the Work Plan for the Export of Hass Avocado from Mexico to the United States, with the use of traps and the collection and elimination of damaged fruits. During three surveys we have determined that 56 productive units (farms) that are within this study, 29 have been found free of the 12 pests (Absent condition); 21 farms with the presence of one pest and 6 farms with the presence of two pests. With the available information, it is possible to have a clear idea to continue the process and see which farms could choose to take the next step, which would be to implement the International Standard of Phytosanitary Measures (NIMF) No 10 Requirements for the establishment of pest free production sites and pest free production sites.</p> Jorge Mario Gómez Castillo Victor Hugo Guillén Alfaro Copyright (c) 2022 South Florida Journal of Environmental and Animal Science 2022-05-04 2022-05-04 2 2 102 109 10.53499/sfjeasv2n2-007 Efecto del retiro de plasma seminal en la calidad espermática de semen caprino congelado usando diferentes criopreservadores https://southfloridapublishing.com/ojs/index.php/sfjeas/article/view/1446 <p>El objetivo del presente estudio fue evaluar el efecto que tiene el retiro del plasma seminal sobre la calidad espermática del semen caprino. Para la congelación del semen se asignaron 4 tratamientos, T1 Optydil<sup>®</sup> con semen completo, T2 Andromed<sup>®</sup> con semen completo, T3 Optydil<sup>®</sup> con semen sin líquido seminal, T4 Andromed<sup>®</sup> con semen sin líquido seminal. Esto debido a que diversas publicaciones mencionan que la enzima causante de la muerte espermática que reacciona con la yema de huevo está presente en el líquido seminal. Para cada uno de los tratamientos se realizaron las siguientes pruebas; Motilidad porcentual al descongelado de nitrógeno líquido, Prueba de termoresistencia a 37 grados, Prueba de resistencia a 4 grados y Prueba de eosina/nigrosina para conteo de espermatozoides vivos y muertos.</p> Victor Manuel Gonzalez Vizcarra Yissel Sacnicte Valdes Garcia Jose Carloman Herrera Ramírez Olga Maritza Manríquez Nuñez Victor Abraham Salgado Beltrán Copyright (c) 2022 South Florida Journal of Environmental and Animal Science 2022-05-10 2022-05-10 2 2 110 115 10.53499/sfjeasv2n2-008 Recuperación de semen post-mortem por medio de lavado epididimal en borregos de pelo https://southfloridapublishing.com/ojs/index.php/sfjeas/article/view/1447 <p>En el presente trabajo se ha evaluado la técnica de obtención de espermatozoides epididimarios post mortem en borregos de pelo, teniendo en cuenta la edad y peso de los animales.

(chilli) cv. MIPC-1 https://southfloridapublishing.com/ojs/index.php/sfjeas/article/view/1466 <p>This study was carried out in the Crop Farm of Eastern University, Sri Lanka during the period from January to May 2019 to ascertain the effect of foliar application of moringa leaf extract (MLE) on growth and fruit yield of <em>Capsicum annum</em> L.cv (chilli) MIPC-1. This investigation was followed in a pot experiment with Completely Randomized Design (CRD) with seven treatments and seven replicates. The concentrations of Moringa leaf extract were 10%, 20%, 30% in addition to 0% (distilled water) as control. The treatments included were; T<sub>0</sub> - control (Distilled water), T<sub>1 </sub>- 10% MLE at once a week interval, T<sub>2</sub> - 10% MLE at once in two weeks interval, T<sub>3</sub> - 20% MLE at once a week interval, T<sub>4</sub> - 20% MLE at once in two weeks interval, T<sub>5</sub> - 30% MLE at once a week interval and T<sub>6</sub> - 30% MLE at once in two weeks interval. The <em>Moringa oleifera</em> leaf extract was sprayed on leaves and axial parts starting from two weeks after transplanting (WAT) and it was continued until pod formation. 25 ml of MLE was sprayed per plant. The results of the experiment showed that the foliar application of MLE with 10% concentration at one-week interval had significant (p&lt;0.05) effects on the plant height, number of branches/plant, dry weight of leaves/plant, stems/plant, roots/plant, fruit/plant and total dry of plant were statistically analysed using Statistically Analytical Software (SAS). The results indicated that the foliar application of moringa leaf extract stimulated the growth and fruit yield of chilli. Based on the results, it was concluded that MLE helps in improving the growth and fruit yield of Chilli and MLE with 10% concentration at one-week interval is recommended for improved growth and fruit yield of <em>Capsicum annuum</em> L.cv.(Chilli) MIPC-1.</p> K.

In this context, it becomes necessary to search for easily accessible and low-cost forms of treatment such as cassava leaves that have condensed tannins which is the active principle with anti-helminthic effect. In this context, the efficacy of the use of cassava leaves (FM) in the control of gastrointestinal nematodes in pigs was evaluated. The trial was conducted in the district of Chòkwé in the production unit of the Civic Services of Mozambique (SCM), in the period from April to June 2019. Eighteen piglets from Large white and landim cross breed aged between 1.5 and 2 months were used carrying natural infection by gastrointestinal nematodes, verified by counting the number of eggs per gram of feces (OPG). The piglets were divided into 3 treatments: T0 (control, not dewormed); T1 (dewormed with FFM-Manioc Leaf Meal); T2 (dewormed with Albendazole), in a completely causalized design (DCC) with 6 randomly chosen animals where the data obtained were analyzed in the statistical package Mintab18. The calculation of efficacy was based on the percentage of reduction through the RESO statistical package. As a result, it was observed that FFM had a better reduction capacity with an efficacy of (82% and 90%) compared to Albendazole which obtained (64% and 73%) efficacy at 60 and 75 days respectively. Estrongylideos sp., were the group most sensitive to the effect of cassava leaf meal. FFM also stood out with the highest return (25.47 meticais) in the economic feasibility analysis compared to Albendazole (2.72 meticais). It can be concluded that FFM has anti-helminthic efficacy in the control of gastrointestinal nematodes and is also feasible in reducing costs of constant reacquisition of conventional dewormers and can be an alternative for use in family pig farms.</p> Maido Quefasse Manhique Copyright (c) 2022 South Florida Journal of Environmental and Animal Science 2022-05-17 2022-05-17 2 2 133 151 10.53499/sfjeasv2n2-011 Consumers’ consciousness on quality of meat, while purchasing from meat outlets in Kaduwela Municipal Council Area https://southfloridapublishing.com/ojs/index.php/sfjeas/article/view/1476 <p>Kaduwela Municipal Council area is the largest geological administrative municipal council area which is 87.71 km<sup>2</sup> in Sri Lanka. According to Food Act No 26 of 1980 Municipal Council is the authority to ensure food safety of the area which is implemented by the Municipal Veterinary Surgeon regarding quality of meat and meat by products. There are 55 leading super markets, 25 meat shops belongs to branded companies and 72 small scale individually owned meat shops. Study was conducted using an interview and questioner with 500 consumers selected randomly while purchasing the meat from all three types of meat shops. Objective of the study to identify the consciousness of the consumer on quality of meat presented to sell in shops before purchase. Consumers were questioned on appearance of meat (colour and texture of meat) and display quality (cleanliness of shop, method of display meat, workers’ hygiene, technique of handling of meat and temperature of display meat) to evaluate the awareness of meat quality parameters. Results were analyzed and presented as percentages. It is identified 56% consumers conscious regarding the colour and only 10% of them assed about the texture of meat. Method of presentation of meat for selling directly interfere the quality of the meat. According to the results consumers visually asses the cleanliness of the shop (56%), hygiene of the workers’ (25%) and the technique of handling meat at the shop (9%) before purchase. However it was unfortunate to observe the consumers’ cognizant of the importance of method of display meat (5%) and temperature of the display fridge (5%) which affect the quality of meat, was significantly low. It is concluded that consumers’ knowledge is inadequate concerning factors to be observed before purchase meat. Finally as the outcome of the research to educate the consumer Veterinary Department of Kaduwela Municipal council has displayed a notice to consumers’ at each meat outlet regarding to concern about the temperature before purchase as it is indirectly contribute to improve the hygiene of the meat outlet by the owners.</p> GC Subhashini Kurugala Copyright (c) 2022 South Florida Journal of Environmental and Animal Science 2022-05-18 2022-05-18 2 2 152 161 10.53499/sfjeasv2n2-012 Comparison of degree of liking for “Consumer sensory characteristics” of organic and conventional broiler meat by young consumers in Sri Lanka https://southfloridapublishing.com/ojs/index.php/sfjeas/article/view/1477 <p>Chicken meat does not get restrictions when compare to beef &amp; pork within Sri Lankan community. There is increasing trend of consuming broiler chicken meat as the per capita consumption has grown up to 9.8kg /year in 2020. Consumer sensory characteristics such as appearance, smell, tenderness, taste, colour, juiciness and overall likeness are used to compare the preference of organic and conventional chicken meats by using young consumers. Objective of the study is to discover the acceptance level of organic chicken meat over conventional broiler chicken meat among young generation by analyzing consumer sensory characters of both chicken meats. Local breed (organic) and fast growing conventional (non-organic) birds were reared in two batches with equal facilities each comprising of 100 birds. 10 birds were selected randomly from each group which was fed with organic and non-organic broiler feed having same nutritional composition. Conventional birds &amp; organic birds were slaughtered at 32 &amp; 75 days of age respectively. 10 young both sexed tasters of 20-25 years old age were randomly selected and were served with two samples of organic and conventional broiler meat. Breast meat of 10 Nos of selected chicken was received from the processing and cooked to 82 <sup>0</sup>C internal muscle temperature. A 10g muscle of <em>P. major</em> muscle, and served for analysis of sensory characteristics. The tasters were instructed to eat crackers, drink water between each sample to clear the palate, and pause for 20 s between samples. All samples were consumed. Results of consumer sensory characteristics appearance, smell, tenderness, taste, colour, juiciness and overall likeness are reported in the sheet after eating both chicken meat samples from each category. Degree of liking for sensory characters were recorded by a questioner having 1 to 5 scale; (1= strongly unlike; 2 = unlike; 3 = average; 4 = like &amp; 5 = strongly like) after tasting. According to analyzed results 70% of the population likes the appearance of organic chicken while 50% of them like conventional. The population prefers taste (40%); colour (30%) &amp; juiciness (60%) of conventional meat. There is no difference regarding the preference of tenderness of both type of meat. Overall (60%) prefer organic chicken meat where as 40% for conventional. Therefore it can conclude that young generation readily accepts organic chicken meat.</p> GC Subhashini Kurugala Copyright (c) 2022 South Florida Journal of Environmental and Animal Science 2022-05-18 2022-05-18 2 2 162 173 10.53499/sfjeasv2n2-013 Editorial https://southfloridapublishing.com/ojs/index.php/sfjeas/article/view/1332 <p>Editorial</p> Dariane Cristina Catapan Copyright (c) 2022 South Florida Journal of Environmental and Animal Science 2022-03-31 2022-03-31 2 2 36 36
