Impacts and adaptation of European crop production systems to climate change
Abstract The studies on anthropogenic climate change performed in the last decade over Europe show consistent projections of increases in temperature and different patterns of precipitation withExpand

Exogenous glycinebetaine enhances grain yield of maize, sorghum and wheat grown under two supplementary watering regimes
Drought occurring at critical growth and developmental stages in cereals affects productivity by reducing biomass accumulation, grain set, and grain yield and quality. Maize (cv. SR-73), sorghum (cv.Expand

Cereal yield trends in northern European conditions: changes in yield potential and its realisation.
Abstract In recent decades there has been steady reduction in the rate of increase in cereal yields worldwide. This paper aims to (1) characterise the changes in yield trends of spring (barley, oatExpand

Breeding Effects on Nitrogen Use Efficiency of Spring Cereals under Northern Conditions
Spring cultivars of barley (Hordeum vulgare L.), oat (Avena sativa L.), and wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) are the most important crops in Finnish agricultural systems. The increasing need to reduceExpand

Grain number dominates grain weight in temperate cereal yield determination: Evidence based on 30 years of multi-location trials
Abstract Multi-location data collected over 30 years in Finland on major cereal crops (spring barley, oat and wheat, and winter wheat and rye) provide an opportunity to characterise variation,Expand

Uptake and translocation of foliar-applied glycinebetaine in crop plants
Abstract Glycinebetaine is known as an osmoprotectant which is accumulated in certain plant species under salt and drought stresses. Exogenous applications of glycinebetaine on crop plants unable toExpand

An evaluation of the effect of exogenous glycinebetaine on the growth and yield of soybean: timing of application, watering regimes and cultivars
Various soybean cultivars were grown under different watering regimes in the field and greenhouse in south-eastern U.S.A. (1995 and 1996), and in the field in north-eastern Western Australia (1995).Expand

Foliar application of glycinebetaine—a novel product from sugar beet—as an approach to increase tomato yield
Abstract Glycinebetaine, a novel product from sugar beet (Beta vulgaris L. v. altissima), is purified from molasses during sugar processing through chromatographic separation, enrichment andExpand

Climate change and prolongation of growing season: changes in regional potential for field crop production in Finland
Climate change offers new opportunities for Finnish field crop production, which is currently limited by the short growing season. A warmer climate will extend the thermal growing season and theExpand
