Introduction Terroir embodies a defined geographic place, integrating soils, geology, climate, the cultivar (variety), and the role of cultivation, culture, and history in producing wine (White, 2003). It captures the concept of " genotype x environment " , integrates the human dimensions of vineyard management, and builds a " sense of place " from(More)
The agricultural landscapes of Nebraska reflect a complex pattern of soil climate regimes and inherent variability that influence the cropping systems, behavior of farmers, and the health and sustainability of rural communities. The USDA crops and soils databases were coupled with the Enhanced Newhall Simulation Model (ENSM) to explain spatial relationships(More)
As bioinformatics applications unfold in the seed industry, new applications emerge for mapping, analysis, and interpretation of cultivar performance across multiple environments in the Corn Belt. Genotype x environment interactions readily translate into matching the traits of corn hybrids with soil properties and microclimatic parameters of croplands.(More)
The surface radiation budget consists of the streams of incoming and outgoing shortwave and longwave radiation flux. Net radiation. the algebraic sum of these four terms, is very significant because it represents the amount of energy available to drive surface climatic, hydrologic, and biological processes. Heterogeneity of the surface is an important(More)
One of the most widely accepted sources of presidential power is agenda setting. Being able to affect the media's agenda on key issues—influencing the systemic agenda and " expanding the scope of conflict " —has enormous consequences for the president's ability to govern effectively. Yet the literature to date has not conclusively determined the extent to(More)
