Course summary

In this course we have defined cartography as a discipline dealing with the conception, production, dissemination and study of maps in all forms.

Chapter 1 is concerned with cartography fundamentals in which cartography principles related to concept of projection system and map scale are developed. This chapter is dealing also with the cartographic language explaining the map symbols and visual variables. Chapter 2 presents the basics of mapmaking explaining the cartographic documents (map types), describing the map components and presenting the stages of thematic map construction. Chapter 3 is concerned with map reading and interpretation in which the rules and their application to the thematic map are presented.


Pest control is at least as old as agriculture, as there has always been a need to keep crops free from pests. In order to maximize food production, it is advantageous to protect crops from competing species of plants, as well as from herbivores competing with humans. It is the Multidisciplinary nature of pesticide science that makes it quite interesting. It has applications in legislation, notification, registration; Agronomy, biology(taxonomy, lifehistory,), chemistry(synthesis, formulation, resideues, compatblity, metabolism), commerce(technical service, marketing, patenting, screening, field development),economics(cash flow, cost-benefit raton), engineering(design of equipment, maintenance), medicine (toxicology, safety, antidotes), physics(droplets,montoring,meterology), ecology(modelling). General public is increasingly concerned about use of pesticides. But demand more food, cheap agricultural produce makes its use imperative. Welcome to the course

Adequate knowledge non-ruminant animal production is essential for student that will want to be self employed as it will help the student to acquire the knowledge needed non-ruminant animal production to improve and increase animal production revolution. At the end of this course, students will be able to:

I. 1. explain the Poultry production: – problems and prospects, management systems- management of broilers, layers and cockerels.

I.2. Describe the management of ducks and turkeys, poultry Diseases and control measures.

I.3. List and discuss the hatchery enterprises and factors affecting hatchery enterprises in Rwanda. Marketing and record keeping.

II. 1. Explain the Pig production – problems and prospects, management/ production systems in Rwanda, management of pregnant sows, piglets, growers gilts, breeding sows and boars,
disease and control.

II.2. Explain the planning production targets: record targets, record keeping and pig production enterprise.

II.1. Explain the Rabbit production: - characteristics of rabbit, breeds of rabbit,
management of rabbit and marketing of rabbit.

Project Tittle: Optimizing the use of Tephrosia vogelii in tick control in the agro-pastoral systems of Rwanda

 

2. Executive summary

Today, productivity of the livestock sub-sector in Uganda is greatly undermined by high incidence of tickborne diseases. Over 30% of indigenous calf crop die of tick-borne diseases. An escalating problem of PI & Team Leader: Submitting Institution: National Livestock Resources Research Institute (NaLIRRI), Tororo PI signature: Project Duration: Three (3) years Total Budget: 224,785,000/= (89,200 US dollars) Date of submission: 30th December 2013.

I like this course because its very interesting

The purposes of this course are to give some tips about the fundamental principles of neuropathology, showing the most common lesions/diseases (it’s impossible to go through every CNS/PNS diseases in each species!) with the main objective to be able to diagnose diseases and pathological conditions of the CNS and PNS. The POA (problem-oriented approach) teaching. Students should be prepared to be engaged with clinical cases during lectures (do not be scared!)… their solutions will be provided after lectures! Remember, your backgroung in neuroanatomy and neurophysiology are key to success in this course.
