The sector assessment of SMAF used to assess soil physical quality considered bulk density and WHC as physical indicators (Fig.
The sector assessment of SMAF on soil chemical quality reflected extractable P, exchangeable K, pH and SAR, and soil fertility only extractable P and exchangeable K.
Although tillage effects did not influence the soil chemical quality of the soil according to the chemical sector of SMAF, increases in certain nutrients, especially in no-till pastures (Table 1), emphasise the need for regular monitoring of soil nutrient status, which should play a central role in fertility management of pastures in dairy production systems (Beare et al.
According to the assessment by the SMAF, soil disturbance had the greatest influence on the biological quality of the soil (Fig.
4 as measured by the SMAF and the locally developed SQIP.
With such inputs, the SMAF procedure is a promising tool for monitoring and evaluation of land management systems under the small-scale indigenous crops based farming systems in Ethiopia to improve the soil management practices and enhance sustainability.
Yamaha's SMAF Sound Decorator is a tool that allows anyone with a PC to easily produce high quality SMAF music data from SMF.
Yamaha previously supplied software called SSC-MA3 that converted music data from SMF to SMAF, but the new SMAF Sound Decorator has greatly improved the functions," says Kazunari Fukaya, Marketing Division Manager of Yamaha's Semiconductor Division.
The advantage of the SMAF Sound Decorator conversion tool available for downloading from tomorrow is that converting SMF to SMAF music data is simple and requires no special knowledge.
For example, using the volume adjustment function and the five categories of tones provided as standard -- 'Standard', 'Bright' (upbeat), 'Bitter' (refined), 'Reflect' (echoing) and 'Cyber' (electronic) -- SMAF data creators can easily enjoy making musical arrangements with the most appropriate SMAF music data, simply by replacing the tones.
Content produced using the SMAF Sound Decorator is currently compatible with mobile phone handsets incorporating Yamaha's synthesizer chip MA-3 (capable of playing 40 notes simultaneously) and MA-5 (64-note polyphony capability).
Not only does the Beatnik Audio Engine deliver to the market a 3GPP compliant audio solution but it also provides handset manufacturers with a complete audio subsystem that allows the playback of existing SMAF content.
