Abstract Developing ratoon rice as forage could increase forage yield without extra demand on the fields in subtropical and temperate rice planting areas. In this research, fourteen Indica rice varieties were first used in 2014 to select suitable ones as ratoon rice. The results indicated that the regeneration rate, regrowth tiller height, and the dry matter yield of Zhunliangyou 608 were significantly higher than other varieties (p

Abstract Crop rotation has been widely used to mitigate weed, insect, and pathogen pressure, as well as to increase plant diversity. However, the magnitude of and variability in crop yield with rotation in China remain uncertain. We conducted a meta-analysis on 45 studies with 214 comparisons to examine the effects of crop rotation on yield and to explore the importance of environmental factors and field management in determining yield variability. Rotation increased crop yields by 20% on averag...

Abstract Upper canopy leaves of maize decrease the light-transmittance at middle-strata-leaves of maize and soybean canopy in maize-soybean relay-intercropping systems (MS). This affects the uptake of nutrients and distribution patterns in various plant organs of intercrop species in MS. Judicious defoliation of maize plants in MS could help to alleviate this problem and improve nutrient uptake and intercrop yields. In a two-year field experiment with MS, including the measurements of biomass pr...

Abstract Plant architectural traits are important factors in determining grain and biomass productivity of sorghum (Sorghum bicolor (L) Moench). However, collecting data on these architectural traits is labor-intensive and time-consuming, especially when using numerous lines in quantitative genetic studies or breeding programs. Therefore, we used the high-throughput field-based robotic platform PhenoBot 1.0 to collect whole canopy stereo images from a large association mapping panel under field ...

Abstract Although intercropping is a common technique that has been widely applied, the effect of phosphorus (P) fertilization on productivity of a fully-mixed perennial intercropping system composed of four species, including two legumes and two grasses, has rarely been studied. The objective of this study was to determine the effect of interspecific interactions on forage yield and the influence of P application on interspecific competitiveness and yield in a fully-mixed intercropping system o...

Abstract Increasing common bean production, through the development and release of new phosphorus (P) efficient cultivars with improved root phenotypes in Mozambique was made possible by integrated physiology, agroecology, and social science research into a breeding pipeline. Social science research on small-holder farmers identified increased production in low fertility soils and ability to improve soil as primary constraints. Identification of root phenes improving P capture by physiological r...

Abstract It is generally accepted that poor grain filling of rice plants under high nitrogen (N) input is due to increased competition for assimilates because high N rate usually results in large sink size with more spikelets per panicle. In this study, we examined grain filling parameters of spikelets in different panicle position under various N treatments to determine the effect of N rates on grain filling. A super rice cultivar with large panicle was grown under field conditions in Wuxue Cou...

Abstract Nitrogen (N) fertilizers applied to agricultural lands are often lost due to improper management practices. It is important to manage applied N fertilizers efficiently in order to promote sustainable crop production. In a two year (2013–2014) on-farm trial in the Sudan savanna of Benin (Dassari village) and Burkina-Faso (Dano village), we assessed the single and interactive effects of tillage and crop residue management on nitrogen uptake (NU) and nitrogen use efficiency (NUE) of cotton...

Abstract In wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) canopy architecture influences light penetration into the canopy and radiation use efficiency particularly during the period between stem elongation and anthesis which is the critical time for the determination of yield. Despite large differences in canopy architecture among spring wheat genotypes, ranging from erectophile to planophile upper leaves, there is little prior evidence to suggest that selection for canopy architecture influences yield. In this...

Abstract Crop improvement aims to produce high yielding genotypes for target environments. Crop models simulate yield formation as the outcome of a series of low-level processes, driven by environmental (E) variables and regulated by genetic (G) traits. There is potential for crop models to aid sugarcane breeding, by identifying desirable genetic traits for target environments. The objective of this study was to evaluate existing concepts of G and E control of plant processes for explaining crop...
