Aiming at improved knowledge on water use, productivity and irrigation scheduling of processing pea, the soil water balance model SIMDualKc was calibrated and validated using field data observed in two farmers’ fields in a wet and a dry year. The model uses the dual crop coefficient approach for partitioning crop evapotranspiration into crop transpiration and soil evaporation. Calibration was performed by minimizing differences between measured and simulated soil water content with a root mean s...

The AquaCrop model was parameterized and evaluated using data relative to supplemental irrigated vining pea for industry using observations in farmers’ fields located in the Ribatejo region, Portugal. Data refers to field observations relative to leaf area index (LAI), soil water content, biomass and final yield relative to two contrasting rainfall years, 2011 and 2012, a wet and a dry year, respectively. LAI data were used to parameterize the canopy cover (CC, %) curve. Results showed that afte...

The previously field calibrated approach of coupling the SIMDualKc soil water balance model with the Stewart’s water-yield model was used to assess the impacts of alternative sowing dates and irrigation schedules upon malting barley (Hordeum vulgare L. cv. Publican) yields. To properly support modelling, the study was based upon field observations in a farmers’ field during 2012 and 2013 crop seasons, respectively a dry and a wet year. The study aimed at assessing alternative sowing dates and ir...

The mountainous massif of Sico, in the centre of Portugal, is an extensive area composed of calcareous Jurassic formations. Hillside calcareous soils, with high pH, present chemical restrictions to support plant growth and are subjected to important erosion processes leading to their degradation if not protected by vegetation. In a first year of study some soil physicochemical characteristics have been measured in some geo-referenced locations of a larger design experiment and an exploratory spa...

Nitrogen (N) is a major fertilizing element for plants. The distribution of N in legumes is influencing the efficiency of the next crop. Nitrogen storage in legumes is actually estimated by N fixation in shoots, whereas there is little knowledge on the contribution of roots and nodules to legume N and soil N. Here, we studied the contribution of roots and nodules of grain and pasture legumes to plant N and soil N in Mediterranean fields. Experiments were run under rainfed conditions for a 2-year...

Barley is usually cropped during the Winter-Spring season and may require supplemental irrigation in dry years. When malt barley is cropped for the industry, irrigation is used to achieve high commercial yields taking into consideration that irrigation should be ceased about one month prior to harvesting in order to achieve high malt quality. Data from two crop seasons of Hordeum vulgare L. cv. Publican, one dry and the second wet, cropped in a farmer's field located in the Ribatejo region, Port...

The mountainous massif of Sico, with a maximum altitude of 553 meters, is an extensive area of 50.000 ha composed of calcareous Jurassic formations. In these calcareous soils there are some physicochemical properties that are very important to analyze, because of their relevance in the protection of that region. This is a preliminary study where four of those characteristics were measured: soil pH, soil organic matter, plant available phosphorus and soil exchangeable calcium. Classical geostatis...

Abstract One experiment lasting for two years was carried out at Pegoes (central Portugal) to estimate the impact of mature white lupine residue ( Lupinus albus L.) on yield of fodder oat ( Avena sativa L. cv. Sta. Eulalia) as the next crop in rotation, comparing with the continuous cultivation of cereal, under two tillage practices (conventional tillage and no-till) and fertilized with five mineral nitrogen (N) rates, with three replicates. Oat as a first crop in the rotation provided more N to...

Abstract Two experiments were carried out at Pegoes (central Portugal) to determine the potential N mineralization in a pulse amended disturbed and undisturbed soil incubated at several temperatures, and to evaluate for 2 years the yield and N 2 fixation capacity of sweet lupine ( Lupinus albus L. cv. Estoril) inoculated with a mixture of rhizobia strains or nodulated by indigenous soil bacteria and submitted to conventional tillage or no-till practices. A completely randomized block design for ...
