Increasing wheat yields sustainability through agronomic means
This paper examines common factors that constrain wheat yields: insufficient nutrients (using nitrogen as an example); problems of late planting and poor crop establishment; suboptimal water management; lodging; and weeds. ...
Evaluation of three field-based methods for quantifying soil carbon
Three advanced technologies to measure soil carbon (C) density (g C m−2) are deployed in the field and the results compared against those obtained by the dry combustion (DC) method. The advanced methods are: a) Laser ...
Straw management, crop rotation and nitrogen source effect on carbon and nitrogen dynamics: A laboratory study
Straw incorporation, crop rotation and organic fertilizer applications have been proposed to counter the negative effects of straw burning, inorganic N fertilizer application and intensive agriculture practices for wheat ...
Organic carbon and stable 13C isotope in conservation agriculture and conventional systems
Conservation agriculture might have the potential to increase soil organic C content compared to conventional tillage based systems. The present study quantified soil organic carbon (SOC) and soil C derived from C3 (wheat) ...
Conservation agriculture and soil carbon sequestration: between myth and farmer reality
Improving food security, environmental preservation and enhancing livelihood should be the main targets of the innovators of today's farming systems. Conservation agriculture (CA), based on minimum tillage, crop residue ...
