Detection and Discrimination of Pratylenchus neglectus and P. thornei in DNA Extracts from Soil.
This PCR-based method is rapid, efficient, and reliable, does not require expertise in nematode taxonomy and morphology, and could be used as a rapid diagnostic tool for commercial and research applications for disease forecasting and management. Expand
Resistance to Multiple Soil-Borne Pathogens of the Pacific Northwest, USA Is Colocated in a Wheat Recombinant Inbred Line Population
This study confirms partial resistance to F. culmorum and R. solani AG8 is present in a recombinant inbred line population developed to identify quantitative trait loci associated with resistance to P. neglectus and P. thornei. Expand
Uricolytic Enzymes in Liver of the Dipnoan Protopterus aethiopicus
The levels of uricase, allantoinase, and allantoicase in lungfish liver suggest that the amount of urea formed in vivo in Protopterus via a uricolytic pathway may be greater than that derived via the Ornithine-urea cycle. Expand
High-Throughput Phenotyping of Crop Water Use Efficiency via Multispectral Drone Imagery and a Daily Soil Water Balance Model
The objective was to develop a high-throughput methodology for quantifying water use in a cotton breeding trial at Maricopa, AZ, USA in 2016 and 2017, using evapotranspiration measurements from a co-located irrigation management trial to evaluate the approach. Expand
Quantitative hopanoid analysis enables robust pattern detection and comparison between laboratories
New approaches to obtain both purified and synthetic quantification standards for hopanoids are presented, allowing more accurate hopanoid pattern detection in both laboratory and environmental samples and permit meaningful comparisons between studies. Expand
Deploying a Proximal Sensing Cart to Identify Drought-Adaptive Traits in Upland Cotton for High-Throughput Phenotyping
Results indicate that the deployment protocol developed for the cart and sensor package can measure multiple traits rapidly and accurately to characterize complex plant traits under drought conditions. Expand
Comparing Nadir and Multi-Angle View Sensor Technologies for Measuring in-Field Plant Height of Upland Cotton
The deployment of four nadir view ultrasonic transducers, two light detection and ranging systems, and an unmanned aerial system with a digital color camera to characterize plant height in an upland cotton breeding trial demonstrated that the Honeywell and Pepperl+Fuchs sensors provided more precise estimates of plant height than the MaxSonar and db3 Pulsar sensors.

Cotton phenotyping with lidar from a track-mounted platform
High-Throughput Phenotyping (HTP) is a discipline for rapidly identifying plant architectural and physiological responses to environmental factors such as heat and water stress. Experiments conductedExpand
