Virginia On-Farm Wheat Test Plots, 2017
(Virginia Cooperative Extension, 2017-08-14)
Summarizes replicated research and demonstration plots conducted by Virginia Cooperative Extension in cooperation with local producers and agribusinesses.
Physiological Evaluation of Alkali-Salt Tolerance of Thirty Switchgrass (Panicum virgatum) Lines
Soil salt-alkalization is a major limiting factor for crop production in many regions. Switchgrass (Panicum virgatum L.) is a warm-season C4 perennial rhizomatous bunchgrass and a target lignocellulosic biofuel species. ...
Antioxidant metabolism variation associated with alkali-salt tolerance in thirty switchgrass (Panicum virgatum) lines
Soil salinization is a major factor limiting crop growth and development in many areas. Switchgrass (Panicum virgatum L.) is an important warm-season grass species used for biofuel production. The objective of this study ...
Analysis of the modes of breeding and pastoral resources in the rural community of Madiama, Mopti Region, Republic of Mali
Available also as a conference paper.
Analyse des modes d'élevage et des ressources pastorales dans la commune rurale de Madiama
La commune rural de Madiama est confrontée à des conflits liés à lexploitation des ressources naturelles limitées dont les stratégies d'utilisation actuelles (agriculture, élevage et pêche° sont inadaptées (ESPGRN, 1996). ...
Improved pasture resources in the Madiama Commune of Mali, West Africa: Working with women groups at the village level
The objectives of this project were to evaluate the chemical characteristics (crude protein, in vitro dry matter digestibility, fiber, etc.) of ensiled vs. fresh C. tora, examine the effect of additives (water or honey) ...
Virginia Tech Corn Silage Testing 2017
(Virginia Cooperative Extension, 2017-11-30)
Presents and discusses the results of performance trials from commercial corn hybrids produced at four sites in Virginia for 2017. Two and three year average performance data are provided, when available.
Elucidation and analyses of the regulatory networks of upland and lowland ecotypes of switchgrass in response to drought and salt stresses
Switchgrass is an important bioenergy crop typically grown in marginal lands, where the plants must often deal with abiotic stresses such as drought and salt. Alamo is known to be more tolerant to both stress types than ...
Heat Shock Proteins in Relation to Heat Stress Tolerance of Creeping Bentgrass at Different N Levels
Heat stress is a primary factor causing summer bentgrass decline. Changes in gene expression at the transcriptional and/or translational level are thought to be a fundamental mechanism in plant response to environmental ...
Virginia Corn Hybrid and Management Trials in 2017
(Virginia Cooperative Extension, 2017-12-05)
Discusses performance trials of commercial corn hybrids grown at six locations in Virginia during 2017.
