Chemical fumigation disinfestation treatments bring more and more concerns due to its hazard to environment and human health, it is necessary to develop alternative non-chemical disinfestation treatments for agricultural ...
Impacts of nitrogen fertility, soilborne disease, and socioeconomic factors on diverse small grain production systems of the Pacific Northwest
Small grains are grown in rotation with many temperate crops in the Columbia Basin and Puget Sound regions, functioning to improve the profitability of the cash crops. During 2009-10, 45 isolates of
Statistical Applications in Plant Breeding and Genetics
Statistical analysis has many applications ensuring the validity and reproducibility of plant breeding and genetics research. Crop plant germplasm collections are often too large to be of use regularly. A core subset with ...
Rotational Cropping Systems for Nitrogen Management and Weed Control in Dryland Organic Wheat Production
Diversification of cropping systems with legumes is a common practice used to overcome soil fertility and weed control challenges in organic farming systems. The current study assessed different legume-intensive cropping ...
EFFECTS OF GENOTYPE, FERTILIZER, AND MYCORRHIZAL FUNGI ON PHOSPHORUS USE EFFICIENCY OF ORGANIC AND CONVENTIONAL SPRING WHEAT
Recent attention to the increasing environmental and monetary costs of mining dwindling phosphorus (P) reserves have lead to renewed efforts to design agricultural systems that use P more efficiently. The objective of these ...
