Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Composite material
  • Agronomy
  • Botany

His primary scientific interests are in Silage, Agronomy, Dry matter, Animal science and Forage. Microbial inoculant is closely connected to Botany in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Silage. In general Agronomy study, his work on Management effects and Silo often relates to the realm of Stover and Aerobie, thereby connecting several areas of interest.

His Dry matter study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Dairy cattle, Digestion and Starch. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Information silo, Inoculation, Conditioning, Maturity and Rumen. The various areas that Kevin J. Shinners examines in his Forage study include Crop yield, Energy crop and Crop.

His most cited work include:

  • Comparison of wet and dry corn stover harvest and storage (177 citations)
  • Crop processing and chop length of corn silage : Effects on intake, digestion, and milk production by dairy cows (170 citations)
  • Nutritive value of corn silage as affected by maturity and mechanical processing: a contemporary review. (143 citations)

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

Kevin J. Shinners mainly investigates Agronomy, Silage, Animal science, Dry matter and Moisture. His Agronomy study incorporates themes from Fermentation and Corn stover. His Silage research includes themes of Dairy cattle, Forage, Starch and Microbial inoculant.

His work deals with themes such as Rumen, Digestion and Botany, which intersect with Animal science. His studies in Dry matter integrate themes in fields like Corn kernel, Fodder, Bioenergy and Latin square. Kevin J. Shinners has included themes like Waste management and Water content in his Moisture study.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Agronomy (54.37%)
  • Silage (30.10%)
  • Animal science (26.21%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2020)?

  • Agronomy (54.37%)
  • Silage (30.10%)
  • Corn stover (22.33%)

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

Kevin J. Shinners spends much of his time researching Agronomy, Silage, Corn stover, Forage harvester and Dry matter. His Agronomy research focuses on Bioenergy and how it connects with Cellulosic ethanol and Hemicellulose. His Silage research integrates issues from Fermentation, Maceration and Crop.

His Corn stover study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Combine harvester, Feedlot, Animal science and Header. His Forage harvester study combines topics in areas such as Forage and Agricultural science. His Dry matter course of study focuses on Food science and Dairy cattle, Completely randomized design and Neutral Detergent Fiber.

Between 2011 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Single- and Two-Pass Corn Grain and Stover Harvesting (25 citations)
  • Engineering Principles of Silage Harvesting Equipment (12 citations)
  • Farm-scale anaerobic storage and aerobic stability of high dry matter sorghum as a biomass feedstock (12 citations)

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

  • Composite material
  • Botany
  • Agronomy

His primary scientific interests are in Agronomy, Silage, Forage harvester, Fermentation and Corn stover. His Agronomy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Food science, Cellulosic ethanol and Bioenergy. Kevin J. Shinners merges many fields, such as Silage and Lactobacillus buchneri, in his writings.

His research integrates issues of Thrust specific fuel consumption, Husk and Agricultural science in his study of Forage harvester. Kevin J. Shinners has researched Fermentation in several fields, including Factorial experiment, Maceration, Pressing and Horticulture. His studies deal with areas such as Metering mode, Combine harvester and Header as well as Corn stover.
