209 goats over 2 years old (44 males and 165 non-pregnant females) were randomly selected from five provinces in the Apurimac region of Peru: Abancay 17-31), Andahuaylas (9-36), Chincheros (7-31), Aymaraes (5-33) and Grau (6-34).
All goats were evaluated to determine the state of homogeneity or heterogeneity and to describe their morphotype according to morphological character including 14 qualitative traits, 10 quantitative traits, and 9 zoometric indexes. This information is essential to develop and propose a breed description, and subsequently a breed standard. Results indicate that the Ap...
Raising goats, in the region Apurimac from Peru, is an important source of food and income for many families. For this reason a study was conducted to characterize the genetic diversity of the local goat population. Genetic diversity was evaluated in 62 native goats from both sexes, grouped into four subpopulations: Abancay, Andahuaylas, Chincheros and Grau by means of 13 microsatellite markers. Genetic diversity of the loci was high, with an average expected heterozygosity of 0.73 and a mean number of alleles per locus of 8.23. The four subpopulations showed similar levels of genetic diversit...
Chemical pesticides have consistently demonstrated their worth by increasing global agricultural productivity, reducing insect-borne and reducing endemic diseases. Current and upcoming global conditions may lead to increase amount of used pesticides for both agriculture and public health. Since insecticides are the control agents of choice for use in agricultural and residential environments. Pyrethroid insecticides replaced other groups of insecticides; because of their selective toxicity against mammals, their rapid degradation in the environment, and the problem of resistance development. ...
