Remote sensing assessment of regional yield losses due to sub-optimal planting dates and fallow period weed management
New tools in agricultural research are needed for improved assessment of agronomic practices and their impacts on crop production. Remote sensing data acquired by satellite sensors offers great promise to complement ...
Narrowing the agronomic yield gap with improved nitrogen use efficiency: A modeling approach
Improving nitrogen use efficiency (NUE) in the major cereals is critical for more sustainable nitrogen use in high-input agriculture, but our understanding of the potential for NUE improvement is limited by a paucity of ...
Yield uncertainty at the field scale evaluated with multi-year satellite data
The level of yield risk faced by a farmer is an important factor in the design of appropriate management and insurance strategies. The difference between field scale and regional scale yield risk, which can be significant, ...
Adapting wheat cultivars to resource conserving farming practices and human nutritional needs
As farmers increasingly adopt resource conserving farming practices, there is a need for wheat cultivars that better adapt to the changing environment and the nutritional needs of people, particularly those living in ...
