NIR spectroscopy: An alternative for soil analysis
Advances in laboratory instrumentation and chemometrics provide alternatives to traditional methods of conducting soil chemical analysis. One of these is infrared diffuse reflectance spectroscopy in the near-infrared ...
Relative impacts of tillage, residue management and crop-rotation on soil bacterial communities in a semi-arid agroecosystem
In this study, the effect of limited tillage versus traditional tillage, residue retention versus removal and crop rotation (maize-wheat) versus monoculture (maize) on the bacterial community structure in soils was ...
Long-term consequences of tillage, residue management, and crop rotation on selected soil micro-flora groups in the subtropical highlands
Densely populated and intensively cropped, the subtropical highlands of the world have agricultural sustainability problems resulting from soil erosion and fertility decline. In 1991, the International Maize andWheat ...
