 Yield curve - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The yield of a financial instrument is the amount of money to be made per year by investing in that instrument. This theory suggests that the yield on a long-term instrument is equal to the geometric mean of the yield on a series of short-term instruments. Yield curves are usually upward sloping and accelerating; the longer the maturity, the higher the yield. en.wikipedia.org /wiki/Yield_curve   (2517 words)

 Yield - Encyclopedia.WorldSearch   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-08-19) In the case of a stock, yield is its dividend yield. Yield is a condition in steel and other metals under tensile stress where it becomes plastic, deformation is large, and will ultimately break. In the context of nuclear weapons, the yield of a weapon is the amount of energy discharged when the weapon explodes, commonly expressed in tons of trinitrotoluene (TNT) needed to produce the same energy. encyclopedia.worldsearch.com /yield.htm   (398 words)

 Yield - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Yield (economics), the rate of return the holder earns on a financial instrument Crop yield, a measure of the output per unit area of land under cultivation Terminal yield, in formal language theory is the sequence of leaves encountered in an ordered walk of a tree en.wikipedia.org /wiki/Yield   (225 words)

 Yield - Analysis Abstracts When the design is routed, resulting in a yield which is significantly smaller than the bound, the designer can choose to change the router cost functions, modify the placement or even re-design the unit in an attempt to increase the yield. Design-stage yield enhancement techniques are aimed at making the integrated circuit {\em defect-tolerant}, i.e., less sensitive to manufacturing defects, and they include incorporating redundancy into the design, modifying the circuit floorplan and modifying its layout. The yield of a VLSI chip depends, among other factors, on the sensitivity of the chip to defects occurring during the fabrication process. www.ecs.umass.edu /ece/koren/yield/analysis.html   (1352 words)

 Yield Mapping (Site-Specific Farming -- Number 3) The yield map is not only a record of yield variability within the field, but also allows a producer to research the question of why certain areas produced the way they did. Each yield measurement is pounds or bushels of grain for an area equal to the combine width times the length the combine travels in the time the operator sets the measurement for (one, two, three or more seconds). Grain yields are variable on a small scale, and the flow tends to even out some of the small-scale yield variability as it passes through the combine cleaning system. www.ext.nodak.edu /extpubs/plantsci/soilfert/sf1176-3.htm   (1622 words)

 Setting Realistic Crop Yield Goals   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-08-19) If yield goals are too low, recommended fertilizer rates aren't sufficient for the most profitable yield and farm profitability is being reduced. Yield goals may have to be adjusted downward for these situations. With this approach the recent average (3-5 years) is increased by 10% to 20% with the higher yield becoming the yield goal. www.extension.umn.edu /distribution/cropsystems/DC3873.html   (1161 words)

 ARS | Publication request: Potato Yield Monitoring on Comercial Fields Yield monitoring data was not always consistent from digger to digger probably due to inconsistent calibration between harvesters and equipment performing differently on different harvesters. In all years, yield monitoring data was missing from some part of the fields due to equipment failure or not having yield monitoring equipment installed on all potato diggers. We found that some yield monitor data need minimal post-processing or correction, while other yield monitor data need substantial post-processing to make them usable, while still other yield monitor data may not be reliable due to equipment failure or other causes. ars.usda.gov /research/publications/publications.htm?SEQ_NO_115=123357   (416 words)

 Yield Sign Policy and Warrants The YIELD sign shall be a downward pointing, equilateral triangle having a red border band and a white interior and the word YIELD in red inside the border band. YIELD signs generally should not be placed to control the major flow of traffic at an intersection. A YIELD sign should be erected in the same manner, at the point where the vehicle is to stop if necessary to yield the right-of-way. members.aol.com /rcmoeur/yield.html   (655 words)

 Normalized Yield Data -- K-State Precision Agriculture   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-08-19) Normalizing yield data based on the average yield means the yield map can be displayed as a percentage of average yield. Normalized yield data can help determine the spatial yield potential of a field when it is combined with a normalized yield maps from a previous crops. Yield data from each combine can be normalized based on the average yield measured by the combine. www.oznet.ksu.edu /precisionag/Examples/normalized_yld.shtml   (943 words)

 Yield Monitors and Maps: Making Decisions, AEX-550-97 Yield monitoring can be defined as "the measurement of the harvested portion of a crop over space and time and the summation of those measurements in graphical form" (1994 Pierce). Yield maps are a very important piece of information and one of the first things a farmer wants to see after harvesting a field. A yield map does not indicate why yields vary, whether yield potential is reached anywhere in the field, or predict yield patterns in future years. ohioline.osu.edu /aex-fact/0550.html   (2271 words)

 Minnesota Statutes 2004, 169.20 The driver of a vehicle intending to turn to the left within an intersection or into an alley, private road, or driveway shall yield the right-of-way to any vehicle approaching from the opposite direction which is within the intersection or so close thereto as to constitute an immediate hazard. The driver of a vehicle about to enter or cross a roadway from any place other than a roadway shall yield the right-of-way to all vehicles approaching on the roadway to be entered or crossed. The driver of a vehicle traveling in the right-hand lane of traffic shall yield the right-of-way to any transit bus attempting to enter that lane from a bus stop or shoulder, as indicated by a flashing left turn signal. www.revisor.leg.state.mn.us /stats/169/20.html   (766 words)

 The Relationship between Corn Grain and Forage Yield - An Update It is difficult to obtain data for both corn grain and forage yield as usually one or the other is harvested in a field or research plot situation. Grain yield treatment means ranged from 0 to 256 bushels per acre while dry matter forage yields ranged from 3.0 to 12.3 tons dry matter per acre. The relationship between grain yield and forage yield was mostly linear through forage yields of 8 tons dry matter per acre. corn.agronomy.wisc.edu /WCM/2005/W176.htm   (815 words)

 Winepros - Article Below average yields (20 to 30 per cent) of white wines had good varietal fruit definition; while the cool to mild conditions before and after the March rainfall allowed ripening to proceed at a normal pace, notwithstanding the below average yields. McLaren Vale yields were down around 20 per cent overall, with normal amounts of the best chardonnay for many years, cabernet sauvignon down five to ten per cent, deeply coloured shiraz down 30 to 40 per cent. Yields were down in 2003, and quality across the board is sound rather than outstanding, although red wine colour is a strong point. www.winepros.com.au /jsp/cda/authors/article.jsp?ID=5134   (1432 words)

 More About Yield Goals Yield goals are needed if you are going to decrease the cost of production to improve farm profitablity. On the other hand, if the yield goals are too low, nutrients recommended are not sufficient for the most profitable yield, and farm profitability may be reduced. The practical range for a yield goal should be somewhere above average to near the maximum yield in the last three to five years. www.noble.org /Ag/Soils/PrintLayout_1_9674_9674.html   (573 words)

 Yield   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-08-19) The yield of the first pleural biopsy is reported to be 35-50% malignancy. The combined diagnostic yield of pleural biopsy and fluid cytology is approximately 66% in confirming the diagnosis of malignancy.

 Yield Furthermore, for any investment, yield is the annual rate of return expressed as a percentage. Investors can use yield to measure the performance of their investment and compare it to the yield on other investments or securities. In some situations, yield may not be a true return measure because it doesn't account for capital gains or losses. baystreet.investopedia.com /terms/y/yield.asp   (149 words)

 Expert: Yield monitor calibration ensures data that computes While farmers are checking and rechecking their harvest machinery they would do well to include yield monitors on their to-do lists, said Stephen Hawkins, assistant director of Purdue University Agricultural Centers. Yield monitors, introduced about a dozen years ago, measure grain volume as a farmer drives a combine along a field. If working properly, a yield monitor can determine bushels per acre to within a 3 percent margin of error. news.uns.purdue.edu /html3month/2004/040907.Hawkins.monitors.html   (738 words)

 TheStreet.com: What Do Experts Expect from High-Yield Bonds in '99? While the real bargain-basement days are over for the high-yield market, junk bonds still are nowhere near as pricey as they were through the end of July, and the people who stake their reputations on this sort of thing continue to forecast outsized gains for the sector this year. Based on expectations that the economy will continue to grow in the 3% to 4% range this year, market strategists are predicting total returns in the 8% to 11% range for high yield this year, compared to less than 1% last year as measured by most indices. As for the yields currently available on high-yield bond funds, as of last Thursday the average fund was yielding 9.1%, according to Lipper. www.thestreet.com /funds/tscfundforum/720147.html   (1196 words)

 Quality and Yield Grades for Beef Carcasses, NCR 357   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-08-19) Quality grades indicate expected palatability or eating satisfaction of the meat; yield grades are estimates of the percentage of boneless, closely trimmed retail cuts from the round, Join, rib and chuck. Yield grades are 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5, and are a numerical representation of the expected percentage of closely trimmed, boneless retail cuts from the round, loin, rib and chuck. "Yield" alone means dressing percentage (carcass weight divided by live weight multiplied by 100), and is not directly related to yield grades or cutability. ianrpubs.unl.edu /beef/rp357.htm   (1602 words)

 [No title] You cannot use yield return in an anonymous method, nor can you place a yield return statement inside a try statement with a catch block (and also not inside a catch or a finally block). When the compiler encounters a class member with a yield return statement such as this, it injects the definition of a nested class called GetEnumerator\$__IEnumeratorImpl, as shown in the C# pseudocode in Figure 5. ScanInOrder then yields the value of the node passed to it as the root of the iteration and performs another recursive call inside a foreach loop, this time on the right-side subtree. msdn.microsoft.com /msdnmag/issues/04/05/c20/default.aspx   (5718 words)

 Dearborn may change yield signs to stop signs - 09/02/03 She said drivers who don't obey the nearby yield signs at the corner of Curtis and Colson make her too nervous. Prompted by complaints from residents who questioned the need for yield signs since drivers didn't seem to use them, Shooshanian proposed the idea earlier this month at a Dearborn City Council study session. Topolski said nine petitions to change yield signs to stop signs were received in the last year. www.detnews.com /2003/wayne/0309/02/d03-260301.htm   (1101 words)

 High Tide for High Yield For investors still looking for high-yield exposure, Berry suggests the PIMCO High Yield fund, the Northeast Investors High Yield fund and the Eaton Vance Income fund. The stellar returns of high-yield bonds in 2003 were not purely a function of an improving economy, which enabled issuers to increase profits and clean up balance sheets. As would be expected from the cost-conscious fund giant, Vanguard offsets the lower yield that comes from avoiding highly speculative, CCC-rated issues by maintaining a 0.26% expense ratio. www.thestreet.com /_yahoo/funds/gregggreenberg/10149584_2.html   (368 words)

 Synopsys Products: Design for Yield (DFY) Since defect mechanisms are evermore dependent on design, not just improvement of the manufacturing process, yield must now be treated throughout the design flow. To address yield loss effectively, a systemic solution is required. Galaxy prevents yield loss through intelligent design: it understands process and circuit variations and enables defect avoidance to prevent functional and parametric yield loss. www.synopsys.com /products/solutions/galaxy/dfy/dfy.html   (263 words)
