Abstract Grazing land models can assess the provisioning and trade-offs among ecosystem services attributable to grazing management strategies. We reviewed 12 grazing land models used for evaluating forage and animal (meat and milk) production, soil C sequestration, greenhouse gas emission, and nitrogen leaching, under both current and projected climate conditions. Given the spatial and temporal variability that characterizes most rangelands and pastures in which animal, plant, and soil interact...

Abstract Multi-service cover crops grown during the fallow period between two main cash crops are a tool to support sustainable crop production. Crucifer-legume mixtures may provide improved multi-ecosystem services compared to sole cover crops, but trade-offs between the known crucifer biocontrol potential and N cycling benefits of legumes are uncertain. We review suppressive effects of crucifers as sole crops and in mixtures with legumes for a wide range of pathogenic and beneficial organisms ...

Abstract To successfully develop production systems for switchgrass (Panicum virgatum L.), miscanthus (Miscanthus spp.), and giant reed (Arundo donax L.), accurate information on effective nitrogen fertilization management on different soil types, climate and growth conditions, and for specific end uses is essential. Nitrogen is the main element, along with water, that determines biomass productivity, but at the same time, it is also the most environmentally and economically impacting agronomic ...

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...

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 ranging from 0...

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...
