Chemical and bioassay characterisation of nitrogen availability in biochar produced from dairy manure and biosolids
Biochar is charcoal made from waste biomass and intended to be added to soil to improve soil function and reduce emissions from the biomass caused by natural degradation to CO2. Nitrogen (N) forms inExpand

Transesterification Kinetics of Soybean Oil for Production of Biodiesel in Supercritical Methanol
A kinetic study on soybean oil transesterification without a catalyst in subcritical and supercritical methanol was made at pressures between 8.7 and 36 MPa. It was found that the conversion ofExpand

Conserved water use improves the yield performance of soybean (Glycine max (L.) Merr.) under drought
We evaluated the importance of conserved water use in drought adaptation in soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.], and identified the traits involved in this mechanism. Eight soybean genotypes, fourExpand

Enzymatic chlorophyll degradation in wheat near-isogenic lines elicited by cereal aphid (Homoptera: Aphididae) feeding.
Chlorophyll degradation enzyme (i.e., chlorophyllase, Mg-dechelatase, and chlorophyll oxidase) activities of aphid-infested and uninfested 'Tugela' and Tugela near-isogenic wheat lines (i.e.,Expand

Aphid (Hemiptera: Aphididae) resistance in wheat near-isogenic lines.
Plant and aphid biomass, photosynthetic pigment (chlorophylls a and b and carotenoids) concentrations, and chlorophyll a/b and chlorophyll/carotenoid ratios were quantified in aphid-infested 'Tugela'Expand

Co-overexpression of the HMGR and FPS genes enhances artemisinin content in Artemisia annua L.
Artemisinin, a sesquiterpene lactone endoperoxide derived from the plant Artemisia annua L., is considered to be the most effective antimalarial drug. To increase the production of artemisinin, theExpand
