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 ...
Healthy Farms from the Soil Up: Finding Common Ground -- Virginia Conservation Innovation Grants (CIG) Final Project Report
(Virginia Usda-Nrcs, 2017-08-15)
This Conservation Innovation Grant (CIG) addresses soil health, a priority for USDA-NRCS. We specifically focused on finding and building common ground around soil health management through innovative partnerships and ...
Growing Small Grains for Forage in Virginia
(Virginia Cooperative Extension, 2018-12-19)
Discusses growing small grain cereal crops for livestock feed in Virginia. Discusses seeding rates, liming and fertilization, grazing systems, cereal hay production and more.
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 ...
