Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Agriculture
  • Genetics
  • Statistics

Alexander K. Kahi mostly deals with Animal science, Livestock, Agricultural science, Biotechnology and Breed. The concepts of his Animal science study are interwoven with issues in Naked Neck, Univariate, Genetic correlation, Veterinary medicine and Interaction. His Livestock study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Economic growth, Developing country, Natural resource economics and Sustainable community.

His Agricultural science research integrates issues from Agroforestry, Fertility, Resource, Environmental resource management and Zebu. His biological study deals with issues like Sire, which deal with fields such as Beef cattle, Quantitative trait locus and Weaning. His Breed study combines topics in areas such as Dairy cattle, Herd and Pasture.

His most cited work include:

  • Zebu cattle of Kenya: Uses, performance, farmer preferences, measures of genetic diversity and options for improved use (72 citations)
  • Developing breeding schemes for pasture based dairy production systems in Kenya (63 citations)
  • Effect of Certified Organic Production Systems on Poverty among Smallholder Farmers: Empirical Evidence from Kenya (52 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary areas of investigation include Animal science, Biotechnology, Agricultural science, Dairy cattle and Breed. His Animal science research incorporates themes from Veterinary medicine and Heritability. His research in Biotechnology intersects with topics in Beef cattle, Livestock, Animal breeding, Genetic gain and Residual feed intake.

His study looks at the relationship between Livestock and fields such as Indigenous, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. His research investigates the link between Agricultural science and topics such as Fertility that cross with problems in Culling. His studies in Breed integrate themes in fields like Herd, Production system and Environmental planning.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Animal science (42.46%)
  • Biotechnology (31.84%)
  • Agricultural science (21.23%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Animal science (42.46%)
  • Dairy cattle (20.11%)
  • Biotechnology (31.84%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His primary areas of study are Animal science, Dairy cattle, Biotechnology, Agricultural science and Genetic gain. The various areas that Alexander K. Kahi examines in his Animal science study include Plant disease resistance and Livestock. His work deals with themes such as Genetic relationship and Semen, which intersect with Dairy cattle.

His Biotechnology research includes themes of Fertility, General linear model and Heritability. His study in Agricultural science is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Productivity, Environmental resource management and Goal programming. Alexander K. Kahi usually deals with Genetic gain and limits it to topics linked to Herd and Animal feed and Genetic variability.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Effect of Certified Organic Production Systems on Poverty among Smallholder Farmers: Empirical Evidence from Kenya (52 citations)
  • Evaluation of pig production practices, constraints and opportunities for improvement in smallholder production systems in Kenya (20 citations)
  • Genotype by environment interaction for harvest weight, growth rate and shape between monosex and mixed sex Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) (14 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Agriculture
  • Genetics
  • Statistics

Alexander K. Kahi mainly focuses on Animal science, Dairy cattle, Biotechnology, Heritability and Sire. The study incorporates disciplines such as Ecotype and Genetic correlation in addition to Animal science. His work is dedicated to discovering how Dairy cattle, Genetic gain are connected with Statistics and other disciplines.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Fertility, Eggshell, Yolk, Rank correlation and Plumage. His studies in Heritability integrate themes in fields like Herd, Japanese Black cattle and Gene–environment interaction. His Sire study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Breed, Purebred, Crossbreed, Animal breeding and Boer goat.
