A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Three species of doves cause significant economic losses in soybean (Glycine max [L.] Merr), for total or partial consumption of cotyledons during crop emergence. Repellents are a nonlethal alternative to reduce this damage, preventing birds from feeding on the crop. This study assessed the performance of seed-applied bird repellents. Tests involve...
El cultivo de soja (Glycine max) es unode los principales rubros productivos en Sudamérica. Algunas especies de avespueden consumir los cotiledones de las plántulas de soja recién emergidas,causando daño al cultivo. Con el objetivo de contar con estimaciones precisasdel daño por aves en soja recién emergida, se desarrolló un método deevaluación sup...
Bird damage, from sowing to crop establishment, is an important issue for farmers in many parts of the world. However, reliable and cost-effective solutions remain elusive because management tools and research on the subject are limited. The spatial variability of damage across landscapes and the adaptative behavior of birds create further challeng...
Eared doves (Zenaida auriculata) are responsible for substantial losses in cereal and oil crops as well as in dairy and feedlot production in the southern cone of South America. Various strategies have been shown to be effective in reducing damage at the farm scale, but in some scenarios, it is necessary to also incorporate population control metho...
An industrial dairy farms often have conflicts with doves consuming livestock food, altering their diet composition and contaminating cattle food. During 2017-18, in an industrial dairy farm located in Durazno (Uruguay) with 10.000 free stall confined animals, bird species involved were identified and productive damage were evaluated. Feed losses w...
Las palomas torcazas (Zenaida auriculata) causan pérdidas que pueden representar hasta 50% de daño en algunos cultivos. El objetivo fue medir la aceptación de cebos contraceptivos para palomas torcazas en jaulas individuales (10 aves/tratamiento). Luego de la cuarentena y la aclimatación de las aves a la jaula, se les ofreció durante cuatro horas d...
