Abstract: soil management systems modify the spatial distribution of soil physical properties. the objectives of this study were to verify the spatial dependency and co-relationship of some soil physical properties by data fitting to individual and cross-semivariograms in an oxisol (typic haplorthox) under no-till and conventional tillage, in campo mour?o, state of parana, brazil. in april 2004, 128 undisturbed soil samples were collected in a 3 x 5 m grid, in the middle of the 5-0.15 m layer. the following soil physical properties were measured: soil bulk density, macroporosity, microporosity, total soil porosity and soil water content at a tension of 100 hpa (field capacity). the spatial variability in the single semivariogram of these soil physical properties was higher and the range in no-tillage was smaller than in conventional tillage. on the other hand, the cross-semivariogram of soil bulk density and total porosity or field capacity indicated spatial co-relationships with lower spatial variability and higher ranges in no-tillage than conventionally tilled soils. the cross-semivariogram suggested that soil bulk density showed a spatial co-relationships with the other soil physical properties in both soil management systems studied.

Abstract: among the techniques for soil moisture evaluation, the use of time domain reflectometry (tdr) stands out, which consists of an indirect, non-destructive, fast and accurate method less dependent on environmental factors. however, works carried out after its applications suggest the influence of factors related to soils structural and mineralogical characteristics, which makes necessary the site calibration for the tdr proper functioning. the aim of this work was to study the influence of bulk density (ds) on the volumetric soil water content (θ), using the tdr technique in a dystroferric red ultisol. a model that expresses the relationship between the soil dielectric constant (ka) and θ was adjusted by multiple polynomial regression, with the incorporation of ds for the estimation of its coefficients. the results showed that in this soil, the calibration model should take into account the effect of ds, without which the quality of the moisture estimates from the dielectric constant measurements is compromised. the results also highlighted the high sensitivity of tdr to the variation of soil moisture, making it possible the accurate use of this technique in actions involving the monitoring of the variation in soil moisture. the results indicated the need for further studies on the use of tdr in tropical soils.

Abstract: the intensive traffic of agricultural machines on soils used for hay production can result in soil quality degradation. the hypothesis evaluated was that systems of intensive hay production cause soil physical degradation. the objective of this study was to quantify the soil physical properties and morphological attributes to recognize and identify the soil physical degradation of a red latosol (typic haplorthox) cropped with tifton 85 forage (cynodon spp) for hay production, in western paraná state, southern brazil. a native forest area adjacent the experimental area was used as reference for soil physical quality. morphological attributes were described in both soils and, in the a and bw horizons, the following soil physical properties were measured: bulk density, porosity and pore size distribution, and soil resistance to penetration (srp). the analysis of these variables confirmed the hypothesis. soil morphological description showed the occurrence of soil compaction as well as drastic alterations in macromorphological characteristics at a depth of 0.15 m in the soil under forage cultivation for hay production. reductions in soil total porosity and macroporosity were verified as well as increases in soil bulk density and srp. under intensive forage production the air-filled porosity in the soil surface layer was found to be lower than 10 % and srp over 2.5 mpa. the morphological attributes only allowed identifying where soil physical modifications occurred, while the soil physical properties indicated the degree of the soil physical degradation. the srp curve clearly demonstrated the soil physical degradation in the surface layer of the soil used for cultivated with forage for hay production.

Abstract: the understanding and quantification of soil use and management on the soil physical quality are important to develop and select sustainable agricultural systems. the purpose of this study was to evaluate the structural quality of a clayey brazilian oxisol under different production and soil tillage systems by measuring the tensile strength (ts) and to quantify aggregate friability (f). the study was conducted in castro, paraná state, in southern brazil, using three production systems and seven soil tillage types, in a randomized block design. the following production systems were evaluated: (ps i) - ryegrass for soil cover (winter) and corn for grain production (summer); (ps ii) ryegrass for haylage/silage and corn for grain production; and (ps iii) - ryegrass for grazing and corn for grain production. seven types of soil tillage were evaluated in each system: (g1) - plow harrow in winter, depth 0.15 m; (g2) - plow harrow in winter and summer, depth 0.15 m; (plow) - disk plow, depth 0.20 m; (laser wing subsoiler) - subsoiler wing tips, to a depth of 0.45 m; (subsoiler) - subsoiler, depth 0.80 m; (aerator) - soil aerater aeromix?; and (nt) - no-tillage, where ryegrass was sown using a double disc and corn with a coulter. from each experimental plot soil blocks (0.20 x 0.15 x 0.07 m) were taken which were broken up by hand in their natural aggregates. then, the aggregates were air-dried for 24 h and passed through sieves with diameters of 12.5 and 19 mm. forty aggregates from each block were selected and tested for indirect tension to determine ts and quantify f. ts was influenced by the production systems and soil tillage types. the lowest and the highest ts values were found in the soil under grazing and the nt system, respectively. friability was less sensitive to differentiate production systems and soil tillage types.

Abstract: PURPOSE: To evaluate the outcome of patients with choroidal melanoma treated with conservative therapy with brachytherapy (episcleral Co-60 plaque therapy) at the "Hospital do Cancer" S o Paulo, Brazil. METHODS: We evaluated 102 patients consecutively treated from January, 1999 to June, 1999. Median age, maximum tumor base diameter and apex size were 55.5 years, 9.75 mm and 5 mm, respectively. Doses at the base of the tumor, including 1 mm of sclera, ranged from 157 to 487 Gy (median 284.5 Gy) and to the apex from 37 to 220 Gy (median 106 Gy). RESULTS: The crude eye preservation rate with conservative therapy alone was 78.5%. Five-year overall actuarial survival rate was 92.2% and eye conservation rate was 78%. Side effects were mostly an uncomplicated retinopathy in 39/102 patients (38.2%); macular degeneration or scarring led to poor central vision in 31/102 patients (30.3%) of cases. CONCLUSION: Our experience with cobalt-60 plaque brachytherapy achieved a satisfactory rate of local tumor control, despite the oversized base diameters of treated tumors.

Abstract: alterations in soil chemical properties after liming depend on the frequency of soil sampling and rainfall. this study evaluated such alterations in a typic haplorthox (rhodic ferralsol) with a sandy-loam superficial layer. the experiment had a completely randomized block design, with four dolomitic lime rates (0, 2.4, 4.8, and 7.2 t ha-1) and three replicates. the experiment was carried out in alto parana in northwestern parana state (southern brazil). lime was broadcast on the soil surface over brachiaria decumbens grass residues in-between rows of a young orange plantation. the experimental plots consisted of an area of 310 m2 with 15 orange plants each (3 rows and 5 plants per row). soil samples were collected in-between the rows of 3 central orange plants at depths of 0-0.05; 0.05-0.10; 0.10-0.20; 0.20-0.40; and 0.40-0.60 meter at 4, 12, 18, 24, 31, and 37 months after liming. this sampling times corresponded to alternated rainy and dry seasons of the region. the analysis of variance was performed based on a complete randomized block design in a split-split-plot scheme with repeated measures over time (years, rainfall season and lime rates), which were used in the regression analyses through orthogonal polynomial models. results showed that maximum alterations in the soil chemical properties were obtained with lime rates twice as high as those calculated to raise the soil base saturation to 70% at a depth of 0.20 m. soil sampling after the high rainfall period proved important to adjust the base saturation data in the 0 - 0.05 m layer. ca concentration only varied in the 0-0.10 m layer, while those of mg varied progressively from the first to the third year in the 0-0.60 m layer. mg concentrations were associated to the soil acidity correction (ph and h + al) and to the increment of the base saturation values in the 0.10-0.20 m layer, where it was found the lowest ca/mg ratio (1.06). the most pronounced response to surface liming was observed in the third year

Abstract: the soil physical quality is fundamental for the sustainability of citrus production. the objective of this study was to evaluate the homogeneity of soil physical quality in-between the rows of an orange orchard with groundcover management systems. the study was performed in an experimental field with groundcover systems in-between the rows of 'pêra orange' on 'rangpur' lime rootstock on a typic paleudult, in 1993, in alto paraná, in the northwestern region of the state of paraná, brazil. an experimental design of random blocks was used, with tree replications. the following groundcover treatments between the rows were studied: bahiagrass (paspalum notatum), perennial peanut (arachis pintoi), and the usual management in which weeds of spontaneous vegetation are herbicide-controlled. in may 2003, 216 undisturbed soil samples were collected from the mid 0-15 cm layer in two sampling positions: under and in-between tractor wheel tracks. soil samples were used to measure: water content at different matric potentials, soil bulk density, total porosity, and soil penetration resistance. pore size distribution, air capacity, and s index were also calculated. the inclusion of the soil air capacity and s index associated to pore size distribution broadened the understanding of the soil physical alterations caused by perennial groundcover management types in-between rows of orange orchard. the greater drained pore volume under the leguminous perennial peanut reduces water availability to plants, corroborated by higher air capacity and s index. the physical soil quality in-between rows of orange orchard covered with bahiagrass is more homogeneous that the usual management or perennial peanut.
