Formation of Camelina sativa yield depending on the level of mineral fertilization under conditions of Precarpathians

Paper ID- AMA-05-09-2021-10692

The influence of growing technology elements of Camelina sativa, in particular, influence of different fertilizer doses on yielding capacity of Camelina sativa plants under conditions of Precarpathians of Ukraine has been studied. Main results of three-year research concerning improvement of existing technologies of growing Camelina sativa variety Girsky depending on the background of mineral nutrition and application of micro-fertilizers and growth stimulants which would maximize varietal characteristics of the crop and meet the needs of farmers have been presented. It was found that the highest yield of Camelina sativa 1.95 t/ha had been obtained with application of mineral fertilizers in a dose of N30P45K45+N60, which was 0.99 t/ha more than in the control. The lowest yield - 0.96 t/ha was obtained in the control variant (without fertilizers).

Mathematical Model for Calculating Humus Balance and Doses of Organic Fertilizers Using Big Data

Paper ID- AMA-05-09-2021-10690

The article presents mathematical models to forecast the humus balance of agricultural lands in the Central region of Russia, developed by scientists of Federal State Budgetary Scientific Institution FSAC VIM on the basis of an array of big data of field experiments of the Geographic Network of Federal State Budgetary Scientific Institution "All- Russian Research Institute of Agrochemistry". On the basis of the presented mathematical models, a software package has been formed, the use of which makes it possible to predict the dynamics of humus in the system of crop rotations, doses and total demand for organic fertilizers necessary to maintain a positive balance of soil organic matter with a known specific weight of perennial grasses, to produce a rational formation of the structure of sown areas, crop rotations and agricultural technologies aimed at preserving and increasing soil fertility and its biological activity.

Kiwifruit detection and counting on orchard video using YOLOv3-tiny and Kalman filter for yield estimation

Paper ID- AMA-05-09-2021-10689

Fruit yield estimation is an important task in modern orchard management. Producers can allocate labors, optimize resources, and increase harvest efficiency by accurately estimating fruit yields. In this paper, a video counting algorithm for kiwifruit was proposed based on YOLOv3-tiny and Kalman filter. Results showed that P, R and AP values of the YOLOv3-tiny reached 0.8258, 0.8353 and 0.8666, respectively, while average detection speed reached 31 ms per image. The tested average counting error between the video counting algorithm and manual counting is 7.2 fruits per video. The experimental results demonstrated that the video counting algorithm can be recommended for fruit counting in kiwifruit orchard.

Time Optimization for Internal Grinding C45 Carbon Steel

Paper ID- AMA-05-09-2021-10688

In this article, the results of an optimization study when internal grinding C45 carbon steel were introduced. In the problem, the objective function which was chosen is the minimum machining time. Besides, six main process parameters including the initial grinding wheel diameter, the grinding wheel width, the wheel life, the total depth of dressing cut, the radial grinding wheel wear per dress, and the tolerance grade were selected for the problem. The influence of these parameters on the optimal replaced wheel diameter was analyzed by designing and performing a simulation experiment. In addition, a regression formula to calculate the optimal replaced wheel diameter was found. It was reported that this formula is in good agreement with the experimental data.

Determining Optimum Replaced Wheel Diameter when Internal Grinding Tool Steel for Time Function

Paper ID- AMA-05-09-2021-10687

This paper presents the results of an optimization study to determine the optimal replaced wheel diameter when internal grinding tool steel. In this study, the minimum grinding time was chosen as the objective function. In addition, six main input parameters of the grinding process were selected for the investigation. The influence of these parameters on the optimal replaced diameter was analyzed. Moreover, a regression formula to calculate the optimal replaced wheel diameter has been proposed. It is convenient to use this formula because the formula is given as an explicit function.
