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) ...
Spatial distribution of Fusarium head blight pathogens and associated mycotoxins in wheat fields
Fusarium Head Blight (FHB) is one the most important diseases in small grain cereals and often is caused by a complex of Fusarium species. Some of these species are able to produce one or several mycotoxins. The spatial ...
Increasing genetic yield and mitigating effects of key biotic and abiotic constraints to wheat production in India through international wheat resources and partnerships
The surplus wheat production in India and the world in the 1990s have eroded in recent years due to stagnating productivity and increasing demands. Production must increase at least 2% annually until 2020 to meet future ...
Allelic variation of glutenin, granule-bound starch synthase I and puroindoline in Korean wheat cultivar
To investigate the genetic variation of highand low-molecular-weight glutenin subunits (HMW-GS and LMW-GS), granule-bound starch synthase I (GBSSI) and puroindoline in 24 Korean wheat cultivars. At the HMW-GS compositions, ...
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 ...
Biological Nitrification Inhibition (BNI) - A novel strategy to regulate nitrification in agricultural systems
Human activity has had the single largest influence on the global nitrogen (N) cycle by introducing unprecedented amounts of reactive-N into ecosystems. A major portion of this reactive-N, applied as fertilizer to crops, ...
NDVI as a potential tool for predicting biomass, plant nitrogen content and growth in wheat genotypes subjected to different water and nitrogen conditions
The application of spectroradiometric index such as the normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) to assess green biomass or nitrogen (N) content has focused on the plant canopy in precision agriculture or breeding ...
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 ...
