The main goal was to find out whether probing the selection after each pairing phase, instead of the tacts, would affect the emergence of the intraverbals (see Fig.
Emergence traps were tested in 2015 on 6 cranberry farms in Pitt Meadows (49.3833[degrees]N, 122.2333[degrees]W) and Langley (49.2666[degrees]N, 122.8166[degrees]W), British Columbia, Canada.
Emergence was daily monitored by recording the number of emerged seedlings until 21 days after sowing (DAS), and the samples for biomass analysis were collected, separated, identified and dried in a forced-air oven to determine the dry weight in grams (g).
The ideal sowing depth varies according to the species and should promote uniform seed germination, speed seedling emergence and high quality on seedling production (BRASIL, 2009).
Objectives: The trail investigated the effect of small dose sufentanil or fentanyl administrated before the end of surgery in reducing the incidence of emergence agitation after anesthesia with sevoflurane in preschool children undergoing ophthalmology surgery and the incidence of emergence agitation of sevoflurane anesthesia.
