The study subjects were DASM, SASM and GAAPE managers and professionals.
Three DASM staff members were interviewed (a manager and two other professionals), four SASM members (one manager and three other professionals, and 13 (thirteen) GAAPE staff (one manager and twelve professionals).
In six cases, Tukey's test was performed to analyse the maize yield and to evaluate the characteristics related to maize yield (Tables 5 and 6), and hoeing 20 days after sowing the maize (DASM) followed by intercropping with sabia were found to be superior in five of the six cases compared to the treatment involving intercropping with sabia at the time of sowing the maize and subsequent hoeing 40 DASM.
This period may explain why hoeing 20 days after sowing the maize (DASM) was generally more advantageous than hoeing 40 DASM.
Grain yield with hoeing 20 days after sowing the maize (DASM) and intercropping with sabia was higher compared to intercropping with sabia and hoeing 40 DASM.
Grado is the Principal Clinical Investigator of the DASM project and was instrumental in the design and development of the software.
The DASM software will allow for the implantation of radioactive seeds having more than one activity level using a Mick applicator or preloaded needles.
The DASM software could have even greater significance when combined with Implant's Octant DVHs and Pathology Mapping prototype software modules.
