Abstract On-farm adoption of minimum soil disturbance and increased residue retention will alter nitrogen (N) dynamics in soils and N fertiliser management in the intensive rice–based triple cropping systems of the Eastern Gangetic Plains. However, the consequences of changes in N forms, N mineralisation and its availability for crops have not been determined. Field experiments were conducted at two locations (Alipur and Digram) of north–west Bangladesh (NWB) to examine N cycling under three pla...

Abstract Breeding heavier seeds while maintaining seed number has been proposed as an effective strategy to improve oil crop production. Recent studies assessing rapeseed source-sink (S-Sratio) reduction after flowering suggest a window in the early seed-filling period that can compensate, either partially or totally, for a decrease in the number of seeds. However, little evidence has been reported in relation to the key window for seed plasticity in rapeseed. Furthermore, such studies have only...

Abstract Developing suitable crop rotations and crop establishment practices is an important mechanism that can enhance factor productivity and sustainability of an agro-ecosystem. However, the impact of Conservation Agriculture (CA) on alternate crop rotation of the most-dominant but tillage- and input-intensive rice (Oryza sativa L.)-wheat (Triticum aestivum (L.) emend Fiori & Paol) rotation of the Indo-Gangetic Plains (IGP) of India is not elaborately studied. Hence, we evaluated the effect o...

Abstract Conventionally managed rice-wheat systems of the eastern Indo-Gangetic Plains (E-IGP) that rely on soil puddling for rice and intensive tillage for wheat are low-yielding and resource-inefficient, leading to low profitability. While a host of alternative tillage and crop establishment (TCE) methods have been advocated as solutions for sustainably enhancing productivity and profitability, few systematic comparisons of these methods are reported. To address this gap, a three-year field st...
Abstract Inter-plant competition is a key trait of maize (Zea mays, L.) crops growth and grain yield. Spatial and temporal availability of resources like water, nutrients and radiation have been proved to impact on this trait. It is suspected that light-quality signals operate on plants´ growth variability of irrigated and fertilized maize crops. Since photoreceptors phytochromes B1 and B2 are involved in light-signals-mediated detecting neighbors, it has been speculated that phytochromes B i) a...

Abstract Understanding the grain macronutrient uptake requirements with increased grain yield is essential to optimize the irrigation and fertilizer management for high-yield and high-quality wheat production to meet the increasing future food demand. A three-season control experiment was conducted on drip-fertigated winter wheat to investigate the dynamic changes in concentrations of nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) under varying water and fertilizer supply regimes. The results sh...

Abstract The factors responsible for yield progress can be analysed through yield determinant frameworks. These conceptual models consider factors such as crop growth dynamics, partitioning of vegetative and reproductive biomass and yield components to provide insights into the factors responsible for observed genetic gains and opportunities for future gains. The aim of this study was to use direct cultivar comparison to assess the rate of genetic gain in the CSIRO (Australia) cotton breeding pr...

Abstract Genetic improvements have made substantial contributions to maize yield and the direction of these improvements has been influenced by cultivation conditions and climate factors. Maize plant and ear barrenness are important to grain yield so we intensively examined the barrenness responses of 10 maize cultivars, released at various times from the 1950s to 2010s in China, to cultivation improvements in plant density and nitrogen application. We compared the cultivars’ responses at 4 nitr...

Abstract The Innate® potato cultivars, Glaciate, Acclimate, and Hibernate are engineered for bruise and cold sweetening resistance, low acrylamide forming potential and increased Late Blight resistance. Phenotyping trials from 2015 to 2017 characterized the in-field performance, postharvest physiology, and process quality of these cultivars in the Columbia Basin of Washington. Plant growth, tuber yields and specific gravities of Acclimate and Hibernate were comparable to their respective parenta...
