Effect of sample preparation on prediction of fermentation quality of maize silages by near infrared reflectance spectroscopy
Near infrared reflectance spectroscopy (NIRS) has become increasingly used as a rapid, accurate method of evaluating some chemical constituents in cereal grains and forages. If samples could be analyzed without drying and ...
Short- and long-term hydrologic controls on smouldering fire in wetland soils
Smouldering fire vulnerability in organic-rich, wetland soils is regulated by hydrologic regimes over short (by antecedent wetness) and long (through influences on soil properties) timescales. An integrative understanding ...
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 ...
Decomposition, nitrogen and carbon mineralization from food and cover crop residues in the central plateau of Haiti

Fifty Years of Cereal Leaf Beetle in the U.S.: An Update on Its Biology, Management, and Current Research
(Entomological Society of America, 2011-10-01)
Cereal leaf beetle, Oulema melanopus L., is an introduced insect pest of small grains first recorded in the United States in the early 1960s. Since its introduction from Europe or Asia into Michigan, cereal leaf beetle has ...
Conversion of deoxynivalenol to 3-acetyldeoxynivalenol in barley derived fuel ethanol co-products with yeast expressing trichothecene 3-O-acetyltransferases
Background The trichothecene mycotoxin deoxynivalenol (DON) may be concentrated in distillers dried grains with solubles (DDGS; a co-product of fuel ethanol fermentation) when grain containing DON is used to produce fuel ...
Genetic variants in root architecture-related genes in a Glycine soja accession, a potential resource to improve cultivated soybean
Background Root system architecture is important for water acquisition and nutrient acquisition for all crops. In soybean breeding programs, wild soybean alleles have been used successfully to enhance yield and seed ...
Genome-wide transcriptome analyses of developing seeds from low and normal phytic acid soybean lines
Background Low phytic acid (lpa) crops are potentially eco-friendly alternative to conventional normal phytic acid (PA) crops, improving mineral bioavailability in monogastric animals as well as decreasing phosphate ...
Comparative genomics of the core and accessory genomes of 48 Sinorhizobium strains comprising five genospecies
Background The sinorhizobia are amongst the most well studied members of nitrogen-fixing root nodule bacteria and contribute substantial amounts of fixed nitrogen to the biosphere. While the alfalfa symbiont Sinorhizobium ...
Review of Passive Systems for Acid Mine Drainage Treatment
When appropriately designed and maintained, passive systems can provide long-term, efficient, and effective treatment for many acid mine drainage (AMD) sources. Passive AMD treatment relies on natural processes to neutralize ...
