Development and Validation of a UPLC-MS/MS Method to Monitor Cephapirin Excretion in Dairy Cows following Intramammary Infusion
Cephapirin, a cephalosporin antibiotic, is used by the majority of dairy farms in the US. Fecal and urinary excretion of cephapirin could introduce this compound into the environment when manure is land applied as fertilizer, ...
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 ...
Decomposition, nitrogen and carbon mineralization from food and cover crop residues in the central plateau of Haiti

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 ...
Plant Adaptation to Multiple Stresses during Submergence and Following Desubmergence
(Mdpi Ag, 2015-12-01)
Plants require water for growth and development, but excessive water negatively affects their productivity and viability. Flash floods occasionally result in complete submergence of plants in agricultural and natural ...
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.
Genome-wide association studies for yield-related traits in soft red winter wheat grown in Virginia
(Public Library of Science, 2019-02-22)
Grain yield is a trait of paramount importance in the breeding of all cereals. In wheat (Triticum aestivum L.), yield has steadily increased since the Green Revolution, though the current rate of increase is not forecasted ...
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, ...
Virginia On-Farm Wheat Test Plots, 2018
(Virginia Cooperative Extension, 2018-08-24)
Summarizes replicated research and demonstration plots conducted by Virginia Cooperative Extension in cooperation with local producers and agribusinesses.
