Physiological Effect of Cutting Height and High Temperature on Regrowth Vigor in Orchardgrass
(Frontiers Media Sa, 2017-05-19)
Evolutionary analysis of the SUB1 locus across the Oryza genomes
Nitrogen Fertilizer and Growth Regulator Impacts on Tuber Deformity, Rot, and Yield for Russet Potatoes
Potatoes (Solanum tuberosum) are an important high-value commodity for producers in the Mid-Atlantic Region. Current production recommendations were based on white potatoes, and practices for Russet potatoes have not been ...
Homogenization of plant diversity, composition, and structure in North American urban yards
(Ecological Society of America, 2018-02)
Urban ecosystems are widely hypothesized to be more ecologically homogeneous than natural ecosystems. We argue that urban plant communities assemble from a complex mix of horticultural and regional species pools, and ...
Sediment chemistry of urban stormwater ponds and controls on denitrification
(Ecological Society of America, 2018-06)
Stormwater ponds and retention basins are ubiquitous features throughout urban landscapes. These ponds are potentially important control points for nitrogen (N) removal from surface water bodies via denitrification. However, ...
Nitrogen Management for Winter Wheat: Principles and Recommendations
(Virginia Cooperative Extension, 2019-01-23)
Discusses the use of nitrogen fertilizers for Winter Wheat and makes recommendations for when and how much nitrogen fertilizer to use.
MetaCompare: a computational pipeline for prioritizing environmental resistome risk
The spread of antibiotic resistance is a growing public health concern. While numerous studies have highlighted the importance of environmental sources and pathways of the spread of antibiotic resistance, a systematic means ...
Application of biochar to soils may result in plant contamination and human cancer risk due to exposure of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons
Biochars are added to soil to improve agronomic yield. This greenhouse- and field-scale study evaluated poly cyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) contamination in 35 commercial and laboratory-produced biochars, and assessed ...
Nitrogen and Phosphorus Fertilization of Corn
(Virginia Cooperative Extension, 2019-01-24)
Discusses use of nitrogen and phosphorus fertilizers for corn (Zea mays). Also discusses placement and amounts of fertilizers to use.
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 ...
