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 ...
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, ...
Candidate Gene Sequence Analyses toward Identifying Rsv3-Type Resistance to Soybean Mosaic Virus
(Crop Science Society of America, 2016-05-13)
Rsv3 is one of three genetic loci conferring strain-specific resistance to Soybean mosaic virus (SMV). The Rsv3 locus has been mapped to a 154-kb region on chromosome 14, containing a cluster of five nucleotide-binding ...
Using maize chromosome segment substitution line populations for the identification of loci associated with multiple disease resistance
(Genetics Society of America, 2019-01-09)
Southern Leaf Blight (SLB), Northern Leaf Blight (NLB), and Gray Leaf Spot (GLS) caused by Cochliobolus heterostrophus, Setosphaeria turcica, and Cercospora zeae-maydis respectively, are among the most important diseases ...
Training population selection and use of fixed effects to optimize genomic predictions in a historical USA winter wheat panel
Key message: The optimization of training populations and the use of diagnostic markers as fixed effects increase the predictive ability of genomic prediction models in a cooperative wheat breeding panel. Abstract: Plant ...
Facilitated iron reduction as a possible means of rejuvenating phosphorus removal performance of filtration substrates
(American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, 2011)
In order to mitigate nutrient pollution in surface runoff more sustainably, the finite capacity for phosphorus (P) sequestration in best management practices (BMP) that rely heavily on sorption processes must be addressed. ...
Spatiotemporal Variation of Precipitation Regime in China from 1961 to 2014 from the Standardized Precipitation Index
Prediction of drought and flood events can be difficult, but the standardized precipitation index (SPI) calculated from monthly data may be a useful tool for predicting future dryness/wetness events in China. The rainy ...
Physiological Effect of Cutting Height and High Temperature on Regrowth Vigor in Orchardgrass
