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 ...
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. ...
Satellite monitoring of yield responses to irrigation practices across thousands of fields
Geographic information systems (GIS) present new opportunities for empirical agronomic research that can complement experimental and modeling approaches. In this study, GIS databases of irrigation practices for more than ...
Reduced nitrogen and improved farm income for irrigated spring wheat in the Yaqui Valley, Mexico, using sensor based nitrogen management
Wheat nitrogen-use efficiency in the Yaqui Valley has been estimated at about 0.31. The nitrogen that is not recovered by the crop has important environmental costs that have regional and global consequences. In addition, ...
