Abstract Degradation of soil resources is a serious global environmental issue and it may be made worse by climate change. It is important that soils should be handled with a careful consideration for sustainable agricultural production using environmental friendly techniques. The use of the biosurfactants and also biosurfactants producing microorganisms to improve soil health and to bioremediate polluted soils is an emerging approach. This review is primarily focused on the use of biosurfactant...

Abstract Soil organic carbon (SOC) is believed to play a crucial role for many soil functions and ecosystem services. Despite much research, a lower threshold of SOC for sustainable crop production has not been identified across soil types. We addressed a comprehensive dataset with yields of winter wheat for nearly a 1000 field nitrogen (N) response experiments performed over 3 decades in Denmark. The soils ranged from coarse sand to clay loam (0.016–0.406 kg clay kg − 1 minerals) with SOC rangi...

The soils of sub-Saharan Africa are characterized by their poverty in nutrients along with low clay and organic carbon content and low exchange capacity. There is high pressure on land resources with the quick growth of population and demand for food. Maintaining the fertility of cultivated soils and land resources is a challenge. Since the paradigm of “external input” in the 1960s and 1970s, to the latest concept of integrated soil fertility management, most of the approaches remain crop orient...

Abstract Rice is staple for nearly half of the world population. Biochar (BC) improves crop yields, reduces greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and immobilizes heavy metals in the soil. This study was aimed to meta-analyze the data from the published articles focused on the various BCs’ effects on rice yield, soil acidity, GHG emissions, and bioavailability of Cd and Pb. The data of pyrolysis temperature, application rate, and feedstock of BCs were categorized by using the MetaWin software for calcu...

Abstract Basmati rice has long been popular in Asia due to its distinctive natural aroma and characteristic elongation of grains after cooking. Demand for Basmati is increasing worldwide, especially in the Middle East, Europe, and the United States. Basmati rice from India and Pakistan earns almost three-times the price of high quality non-Basmati rice in the domestic and the international markets. Despite this, the development of high-yielding Basmati rice varieties has not kept pace with indic...

Abstract Plants containing natural products have been used worldwide in traditional medicine since antiquity and are a source of potential and powerful drugs. The potential of higher plants as a source for new drugs is still largely unexplored, and among the estimated 250,000–500,000 plant species, only a small fraction has been submitted to biological or pharmacological screening. Medicinal plants and their isolated compounds are utilized worldwide in traditional medicine for the treatment of v...

Abstract Globally, the increase in climatic variability is responsible for more frequent extreme heat and drought stress events. Heat and water stress have a devastating impact on plant growth, development, and formation of the yield components of rapeseed/canola, an important oilseed crop for human consumption and a renewable feedstock for biodiesel production. The growing demand for rapeseed/canola will not be met unless strategies are rapidly developed to sustain and improve crop yields and p...

Abstract This chapter reviews contributions made to agricultural and environmental science and practice from research on temperate grassland carried out from 1982 to present at Rothamsted Research's North Wyke Research Station, Devon, UK. It describes the evolution of the research program and demonstrates the importance of sustained, interdisciplinary, and collaborative research. North Wyke has maintained a clear research focus, alongside an ability to adapt to changing grassland and environment...

Phosphorus (P) is an essential element for all living organisms. At the current rate of extraction, global reserves of mineable deposits will be exhausted within the next few centuries. This publication aims to summarize the current knowledge on P recycling for organic farming. The evaluation of recycled P fertilizers (RPFs) includes (i) a chemical characterization, (ii) assessment of their plant P availability and added effects in the soil, (iii) life cycle assessments, (iv) a risk assessment o...

Food security should be addressed in relation to soil sustainability and sustainable land care, and examined within the science framework of Earth's critical zone as an integrated system that includes Earth surface interactions, connected to soil functions, and ecosystem services. There is a great need to develop critical zone mathematical models that will simulate and quantify soil functions and that can be used as management tools to address soil sustainability and land care practices. The int...
