Abstract The objective of this study was to assess the impact of different cotton (Gossipium hirsutum)-based management systems in the Brazilian Cerrado on soil’s physical and chemical quality, using multivariate analysis techniques. The experiment was conducted in areas of cotton production in the state of Mato Grosso, located in the Cerrado biome and Cerrado/Amazon ecotone. Soil samples were obtained from 1162 plots of 10 ha each to evaluate the effects of cotton production systems. These plot...

Abstract The impact of environment, genetic selection and their interactions on grain yield of durum wheat genotypes has been extensively studied; however, limited information is available for their influence on gluten quality associated with effects on the amount and composition of glutenins, gliadins and celiac disease (CD)-triggering peptides. In this study, a set of six commonly cultivated durum wheat genotypes were assessed in a multi-environment trial of eight site-year combinations in dif...

Abstract Sustainable development of livestock production is challenged by the shortage of forage resources on the Qinghai-Tibetan plateau (QTP). Common vetch-oat intercropping is used on the QTP and in other alpine regions to obtain substantial forage yield, but few common vetch cultivars have been evaluated in intercropping systems. A three-year field experiment in the eastern QTP was carried out to compare plant growth, photosynthetic rate (Pn), radiation use efficiency (RUE), aboveground biom...

Abstract Lodging is a major element restricting the yield and quality of spring maize (Zea mays L.). A 2-year field experiment was implemented to explore the effects of flooding and waterlogging stress on the vascular bundle structure, mechanical properties of the stem and yield of two spring maize hybrids, Demeiya1 (DMY1) and Keyu16 (KY16), in Northeast China. Flooding and waterlogging treatments were conducted for different durations (3, 6, and 9 days for flooding and 5, 10, and 15 days for wa...

Abstract Managing the transition from conventional agriculture to agroecology needs to account for the diversity of farming systems. Here we evaluate whether indicators based on agrodiversity and implementation of agroecological practices can discriminate types of farms with different trajectories in the context of the agroecological transition. The indicators tested were coupled with production factor, performance and strategy variables to better target their need for innovation. We propose a c...

Abstract In the face of climate change, the potential impacts of adverse weather conditions on the productivity and vulnerability of cropping systems (CS) worldwide constitute a key agronomic issue upon which global food security depends. To date, little information regarding how the diversity of CS or agricultural practices affect the long-term yield responses of winter barley is available. The aim of this study was to investigate the impact of CS diversity in terms of cropping sequences, organ...

Abstract Lodging resistance is a major desired trait in modern maize breeding. Identifying parameters to evaluate lodging resistance could help crop breeders develop maize cultivars with improved lodging resistance. Thirty-four summer maize cultivars currently planted in China were grown in 2017 and 2018 in order to identify relationships between stalk and root lodging resistance and to analyze the main reasons for differences in lodging resistance between maize cultivars. Twenty-five lodging re...

Abstract Water stress in different maize growth stages has different effects on maize growth and development. Accurately simulating these effects with a maize model are important to agriculture water management and savings. The objective of this study was to improve the performance of the Crop-Environment Resource Synthesis Maize (CERES-Maize) model for simulating maize (Zea mays L.) growth and yield under water stress conditions. The model was evaluated based on the measurements of phenology da...

Abstract Adaptation measures are required to enhance climate change resilience of agricultural systems and reduce risks associated with climate change at both regional and global scales. The Texas High Plains is a semi-arid region that faces major challenges from climate change risks and dwindling groundwater supply from the exhaustible Ogallala Aquifer for sustaining irrigated agriculture. The overall goal of this study was to assess the impacts of climate change on yield and water use of grain...

Abstract Intensive vegetable production in soil is often associated with large N losses to the environment. To contribute to improved N management of sweet pepper, this work developed a critical nitrogen curve (CNC). It also developed N recommendations and examined N use efficiency (NUE) and potential NO3− leaching loss in relation to increasing total available nitrogen (TAN). TAN is the sum of the soil mineral N at planting, N mineralized from soil organic material, and mineral N fertilizer. Th...
