Abstract Site-specific seeding (SSS) is a precision agricultural (PA) practice aiming at optimizing seeding rate and depth, depending on the within field variability in soil fertility and yield potential. Unlike other site-specific applications, SSS was not adopted sufficiently by farmers due to some technological and practical challenges that need to be overcome. Success of site-specific application strongly depends on the accuracy of measurement of key parameters in the system, modeling and de...

Abstract The increased demand for organic farm products, and the attendant restrictions on the use of synthetic N fertilizers in both traditional and organic agriculture, has focused attention on the efficacy of organic sources of N, including animal excreta. However, questions arise in regard to the agronomic and environmental benefits of excreta as alternative sources of N. These questions are best addressed through the experimental use of 15N-enriched excreta, which enable the labeled source ...

Abstract Intercropping is the simultaneous cultivation of plant species in the same field for a considerable proportion of their growing periods. Interest in intercropping for sustainable agriculture is on the rise and the number of scientific studies on intercropping is strongly increasing. Here we assess the current status of knowledge on factors that determine yield, yield stability and resource use efficiency of intercropping as compared to sole cropping. Distinguishing resource use into acq...

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 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 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 ...
Weed science, as an integral part of agricultural production needs to evolve by moving away from its mono-disciplinary perspective at targeting weeds, sometimes a single species, through the overreliance on few single herbicide mechanisms of action. Herbicides remain a simple and cost-effective way to control weeds but they are rapidly losing their effectiveness due to evolution of herbicide resistance. Additionally, weed science has been left wanting for a strong theoretical foundation rooted i...

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 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 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...
