Innovation is Important things

[dropcap]Y[/dropcap]esterday, I had opportunity to discuss with my Professor, related to research in Agriculture, especially ini his research interest, Agriculture Informatics. We discuss about technology and field application, as we know that Information and technology is common use in various field of science, perhaps technology was already given by technology developer and IT practitioners, but … Read more

Lecture notes : Biological Resource Utilization and Conservation

[dropcap]W[/dropcap]inter 2012. Today is the last Biological resource utilization class, given by Dr. Yoshimura from laboratory Plant Breeding.  from him we learn much about breeding and biodiversity plant, especially paddy rice, as we know that rice is  staple food in south east asia. Dealing with another material, is will make simple resume here.

Chapter one

Conservation of Biodiversity and sustainable utilization of Biological Resources. This lecture given by Prof. Masami Takagi. This lecture covers Agricultural Ecology, pest in agricultural ecosystem, and Integrated pest management.  firstly we study about level in biological activity, classification related to Individu, Population, Community, Ecosystem and Biosphere. there are component in earth as general. we also consider about energy chain in flow ecosystem like our class given when we are study in elementary school or junior high school. sun is energy resource , using sunrise energy we can produce agricultural commodities and plant, from this lecture we also remember about simple agricultural ecosystem, called Natural Ecosystem.

Natural Ecosystem

–> Energy –> Sun –>  Producer (Plants) –> Consumer ( Animal ) –> Decomposer (Microbial) –> Loop

Let’s know the Arduino

Winter @ kashiihama. Firstly i heard about Arduino when I was study in Electrical Engineering, just heard from my friend who takes thesis topic about arduino for home controlling. I have been looking for a while to his device and just thinking that not related to my thesis in that time.

After discuss and listen to research presentation in end year seminar, about system measuring in tractor movement using arduino by Fukushima Sensei from Mie University, our research team consider to adopt this technology for improve field monitoring and actuating system. In other hand, we have to familiar first with this device and how to program it. Actually this is my first time to do research with arduino, that’s why I start  to learn from official site and step by step to know what is arduino.

End Year Seminar

December 22, my laboratory held annual seminar, named end year seminar. This event held by two laboratory related in agrocultural mqchinery and agricultural information system. Two laboratory mentioned above is Bioproduction Engineering laboratory and Agricultural information System Laboratory. So which laboratory Ibelongs to? actually I interested in agricultural information system, more popular as agricultural informatics. I belongs to bioproduction engineering laboratory, but my research is actually close to the neighborhood. No problem, after listening and watching presentation research from these two laborqtory, I can understand what is the main concerns in each laboratory research. This is a little note that I can catch from this end year seminar.
