Medium-term effects of conservation agriculture based cropping systems for sustainable soil and water management and crop productivity in the Ethiopian highlands
In the northern Ethiopian highlands, croplands yield extremely high volumes of storm runoff and are the major contributor to sediment load in the rivers. A medium-term tillage experiment was carried out (2005?2010) on a ...
Effects of conservation agriculture on runoff, soil loss and crop yield under rain fed conditions in Tigray, Northern Ethiopia
The aim of conservation agriculture (CA) is to improve soil quality and crop yield whilst reducing runoff and topsoil erosion. An experiment was carried out in a rainfed field using a permanent raised bed planting system ...
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 ...
Simulating the influence of vernalization, photoperiod and optimum temperature on wheat developmental rates
Background and Aims: Accurately representing development is essential for applying crop simulations to investigate the effects of climate, genotypes or crop management. Development in wheat (Triticum aestivum, T. durum) ...
Identification of QTLs for stay green trait in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) in the 'Chirya 3' x 'Sonalika' population
Stay green or delayed senescence is considered to play a crucial role in grain development in wheat when assimilates are limited.Weidentified three QTLs for stay green on the chromosomes 1AS, 3BS and 7DS using a recombinant ...
Microsatellite mapping identifies TTKST-effective stem rust resistance gene in wheat cultivars VL404 and Janz
Wheat cultivar VL404 carries seedling resistance to Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici pathotype TTKST. Monogenic segregation for seedling resistance was observed in a VL404/WL711 recombinant inbred line population and the ...
