Abstract The excessive application of phosphorus fertilizer has caused available phosphorus (AP) surplus in cultivated soils. By using the Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT), the soil AP surplus and its relationship with fertilization and environmental changes was estimated for the wheat-maize rotation production area in the Baiyangdian basin, which is a typical arid region in North China Plain. Due to the little runoff, the model was validated by the measured AP concentration in deep soil pr...

Abstract With the development of hybrid rice cultivars and mechanized planting technologies, it is hypothesized that the grain yield and nitrogen (N) use efficiency of mechanically transplanted rice could be further improved by harnessing the compensatory effects from the N rate and plant density on individual plants and populations. We evaluated the interactive effects of the N rate and plant density on the grain yield and N use efficiency of rice in two field experiments during 2014 and 2015. ...

Abstract Shallow drainage (e.g. mole and gravel mole drainage installed at 0.55 m below soil surface) is used on pasture-based farms to reduce soil moisture, deepen water table depth and thus increase grass utilization on soils with impeded drainage. There is, however, a lack of research on the effect that these drainage techniques have on soil greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Hence the objective of this study was to investigate the effects of mole and gravel mole drainage on soil GHG fluxes. Soi...

Abstract Southwest China is characterized by shallow soils with low soil loss tolerance (30–68 t km −2 yr -1 ), and this region is one of the largest contiguous karst areas in the world, notorious for its highly eroded landscapes. However, reliable information on soil erosion rates in these karst watersheds is limited due to the highly heterogonous landscape. Karst depressions are a unique geomorphologic pattern in southwest China which can trap eroded sediment similar to a reservoir or dam, and...

Abstract Animal pollinators are in a serious decline due to habitat loss, isolation and landscape fragmentation, putting pollination services to crops at risk. Hedgerows have been repeatedly emphasized as landscape elements that provide nesting and food resources, connect fragmented habitats and could thus facilitate crop pollination. However, the beneficial and potentially also detrimental impacts of hedgerows on crop pollination remain poorly studied. Here, we analysed the effects of pollinato...

Abstract Effective restoration of meadows requires seeds of local provenance to preserve not only the species diversity but also the genetic identity of plant communities. We compared three different methods of seed harvesting from local meadow communities and assessed their efficiency in meadow restoration on ex-arable land. These methods were: brush harvesting once only, brush harvesting three times during a season, and green hay transfer. We observed the composition of species and functional ...

Abstract Soil organic matter (SOM) in agricultural soils builds up via – among others - the use of organic inputs such as straw, compost, farmyard manure or the cultivation of green manures or cover crops. SOM has benefits for long-term soil fertility and can provide ecosystem services. Farmer behaviour is however known to be motivated by a larger number of factors. Using the theory of planned behaviour, we aimed to disentangle these factors. We addressed the following research question: What ar...

Abstract Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) are a key component of soil microbiota in natural and anthropogenic ecosystems. Even though soil type and climate conditioned land uses in the past, soybean cultivation has overrode such limitations and replaced the earlier diverse agro- and natural ecosystems in many countries of South America. We investigated whether actual diversity patterns of local AMF communities were determined by previous land uses and their intrinsic environmental conditions. ...

Abstract Like natural enemies, invasive polyphagous pests may respond positively to local and landscape-scale diversity, making them more serious challenges to sustainable management than specialists. Yet the current view of landscape effects on pests rarely considers perennial systems or polyphagous pests. We investigated Drosophila suzukii (SWD) and natural enemy distributions and trophic interactions in blueberry systems of the southeast US in relation to local management and landscape struct...
