Injecting Poultry Litter into Orchardgrass Hay
Traditional surface application of poultry litter leaves nutrients vulnerable to loss through volatilization and runoff. However, injection can increase capture of these nutrients in agricultural fields. Therefore, a field ...
Accelerated senescence and nitrogen remobilization in flag leaves enhance nitrogen use efficiency in soft red winter wheat
Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) production requires a large amount of nitrogen (N) supply because growers aim to achieve high grain yield and appropriate grain protein content simultaneously. A comprehensive understanding of ...
LTRA-6 update 2014
This PowerPoint summarizes the research and training activities of SANREM’s regional project in the Central Plateau Haiti. The presentation describes a baseline survey conducted at the beginning of the project that discerns ...
Physiological and Molecular Traits Associated with Nitrogen Uptake under Limited Nitrogen in Soft Red Winter Wheat
A sufficient nitrogen (N) supply is pivotal for high grain yield and desired grain protein content in wheat (<i>Triticum aestivum</i> L.). Elucidation of physiological and molecular mechanisms underlying nitrogen use ...
Building resilience in cropping systems of the Central Plateau of Haiti
This presentation provides information on a project intended to improve resilience through conservation agriculture production systems in the Central Plateau of Haiti. It discusses results from a baseline survey and from ...
A conservation agriculture production system program for the central plateau of Haiti
Haiti’s soils suffer from severe degradation as a result of erosion, leading to decreased yields and low food security. The soils of Haiti’s Central Plateau, while less degraded than in other regions, are constrained by ...
CCRA-9 2014 update
This PowerPoint summarizes the research activities and findings of SANREM’s soil quality and soil carbon sequestration cross-cutting research activity. The presentation describes studies of soil carbon dioxide, GIS ...
Decomposition, nitrogen and carbon mineralization from food and cover crop residues in the central plateau of Haiti
(Springer International Publishing Ag, 2016-07-04)
Development of a new dual-chamber microlysimeter model for residue decomposition measures
This is an abstract from the 2013 American Society of Agronomy Annual Meetings, presented in the second session on General Soil Fertility and Plant Nutrition.
Corn and Wheat Residue Management Effects on Greenhouse Emissions in the Mid-Atlantic USA
Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from crop residue management have been studied extensively, yet the effects of harvesting more than one crop residue in a rotation have not been reported. Here, we measured the short-term ...
