[Plant transpiration in a maize/soybean intercropping system measured with heat balance method].
The plant sap flow rates were affected by many environmental factors, among which, solar radiation was the most important meteorological factor and the daily sap flow showed significant correlations with solar radiation, air temperature, relative humidity, wind speed, and soil heat flux. Expand
[Effects of soil moisture regime on greenhouse tomato yield and its formation under drip irrigation].
The correlations of tomato yield and its water use efficiency with irrigation amount could be well described by quadratic function and the fruit number and total yield were higher while the percentage of malformed fruit was lower when the soil moisture content was controlled. Expand

Abstract Vegetable production in many countries relies on irrigation. While increasing irrigation amount normally improves yield, too much water could jeopardize fruit quality and comprise profit.Expand
Comparison of Shuttleworth-Wallace model and dual crop coefficient method for estimating evapotranspiration of tomato cultivated in a solar greenhouse
Abstract The accurate determination of crop evapotranspiration (ETc) is important for improving irrigation water use efficiency and optimizing fruit quality in solar greenhouses. TakingExpand
[Irrigation scheduling with a 20 cm standard pan for drip-irrigated cucumber grown in solar greenhouse in the North China Plain].
The drip water amount calculated with Kcp of 0.75 and the 20 cm pan were easy and feasible for cucumber cultivation in solar greenhouse in the North China Plain and there was a significant positive correlation between the pan evaporation and the reference crop evapotranspiration estimated based on a modified Penman-Monteith equation.

[Effects of tilage mode and deficit irrigation on the yield and water use of transplanted cotton following wheat harvest under sprinkler irrigation].
No-tillage with 22.5 mm of irrigating water quota under sprinkler irrigation not only decreased the soil evaporation effectively, but also achieved water-saving, high quality and high yield of transplanted cotton following wheat harvest. Expand
[Effects of girdling on growth, yield and water use efficiency of cotton].
It has been concluded that the girdling applied on the main stem at the flourishing stage of flowering and boll-setting could effectively reduce the abscission rate of squares and bolls, improve yield and WUE significantly, and realize the effective unity of high production and water-saving. Expand
Optimizing irrigation and nitrogen management strategy to trade off yield, crop water productivity, nitrogen use efficiency and fruit quality of greenhouse grown tomato
Abstract Water and nitrogen are two main factors affecting crop yield and quality, and their optimization is crucial for sustainable agriculture production. In this study, the results of a three-yearExpand
Evapotranspiration and crop coefficient of tomato grown in a solar greenhouse under full and deficit irrigation
Abstract Information of crop evapotranspiration (ETc) and crop coefficient (Kc) is essential for improving water use and optimizing irrigation scheduling. Here, a three-year (2015, 2016 and 2019)Expand
[Optimal irrigation index for cotton drip irrigation under film mulching based on the evaporation from pan with constant water level].
In Xinjiang cotton area, irrigating 45 mm water for seedling emergence, no irrigation both at seedling stage and at boll opening stage, and irrigation was started when the pan evaporation reached 45-65 mm and 45 mm at squaring stage and blossoming-boll forming stage, which could be the high efficient irrigation index to obtain high yield and WUE in drip irrigation cotton field and to save irrigation water resources.
