MYC2 Differentially Modulates Diverse Jasmonate-Dependent Functions in Arabidopsis[W]
The Arabidopsis thaliana basic helix-loop-helix Leu zipper transcription factor (TF) MYC2/JIN1 differentially regulates jasmonate (JA)-responsive pathogen defense (e.g., PDF1.2) and wound response… Expand
Traits and selection strategies to improve root systems and water uptake in water-limited wheat crops.
Wheat yields globally will depend increasingly on good management to conserve rainfall and new varieties that use water efficiently for grain production. Here we propose an approach for developing… Expand
Biofumigation and Enhanced Biodegradation: Opportunity and Challenge in Soilborne Pest and Disease Management
Management of soilborne pests and diseases in cropping systems is often highly challenging—in implementation of acceptable methodologies and in dealing with secondary problems. The phase-out of… Expand
Isothiocyanate release from soil-incorporated Brassica tissues.
Abstract Isothiocyanates (ITCs) released from glucosinolates in Brassicaceous residues are thought to suppress soil-borne plant pests, however, little is known about ITC formation in soil. We… Expand
Impact of subsoil water use on wheat yield
Water stored deep in the soil profile is generally considered valuable to crop yield because it becomes available during grain filling, but the value of subsoil water for grain yield has not been… Expand
Biofumigation potential of brassicas
Isothiocyanates (ITCs) released from Brassica crops or seed meal amendments incorporated into soil have the potential to suppress pest and disease organisms in soil. We investigated in vitro toxicity… Expand
Break crop benefits in temperate wheat production
Abstract Changes in the sequence of crops grown on agricultural land are well known to enhance the yield of grain crops such as wheat. A survey of the literature gathered from around the world show… Expand
Stable soil organic matter: A comparison of C:N:P:S ratios in Australian and other world soils
Sequestering soil carbon (C) relies upon the availability of stabilising elements, nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and sulphur (S) which are known to be essential components of the stable organic C pool… Expand
Beyond conservation agriculture
Global support for Conservation Agriculture (CA) as a pathway to Sustainable Intensification is strong. CA revolves around three principles: no-till (or minimal soil disturbance), soil cover, and… Expand
Glucosinolates and biofumigation: fate of glucosinolates and their hydrolysis products in soil
The bioactive hydrolysis products of glucosinolates, particularly the isothiocyanates, can be used to control soil pests and weeds by incorporating glucosinolate-containing plant material in soil—a… Expand
