Multienvironment and Multitrait Genomic Selection Models in Unbalanced Early-Generation Wheat Yield Trials
(Crop Science Society of America, 2019-02-21)
The majority of studies evaluating genomic selection (GS) for plant breeding have used single-trait, single-site models that ignore genotype x environment interaction (GEI) effects. However, such studies do not accurately ...
Effects of Cytokinin and Nitrogen on Drought Tolerance of Creeping Bentgrass
Evaluating Intercropping (Living Cover) and Mulching (Desiccated Cover) Practices for Increasing Millet Yields in Senegal
Located within the Sahel region, Senegal faces several agricultural production challenges. Limited rainfall, poor soil fertility, and insufficient agronomic inputs all contribute to low pearl millet [Pennisetum glaucum ...
Antibiotics ameliorate lupus-like symptoms in mice
Gut microbiota and the immune system interact to maintain tissue homeostasis, but whether this interaction is involved in the pathogenesis of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is unclear. Here we report that oral antibiotics ...
Differential responses of grain yield, grain protein content and their associated traits to nitrogen supply in soft red winter wheat
Increased application of nitrogen fertilizers has significantly raised grain yield and protein concentration in wheat. However, only 30–50% of applied fertilizer nitrogen are usually utilized by the plant. In this study, ...
Switchgrass Cultivar/Ecotype Selection and Management for Biofuels in the Upper Southeast USA
Switchgrass (Panicum virgatum L.), a perennial warm-season grass indigenous to the eastern USA, has potential as a biofuels feedstock. The objective of this study was to investigate the performance of upland and lowland ...
Submergence and Waterlogging Stress in Plants: A Review Highlighting Research Opportunities and Understudied Aspects
Soil flooding creates composite and complex stress in plants known as either submergence or waterlogging stress depending on the depth of the water table. In nature, these stresses are important factors dictating the species ...
Reclaimed Water for Turfgrass Irrigation
Sustainable irrigation of turfgrass grown on coarse-textured soils with reclaimed water must avoid detrimental effects of soluble salts on plant growth and soil quality and groundwater enrichment of nitrogen (N) and ...
