Gas Exchange and Transpiration Ratio in Sorghum
Decreased water availability and increased food demand worldwide require development of more water-effi cient crops. This study was conducted to examine prefl ower transpiration ratio (CO 2Expand
Long‐Term Fertilizer and Water Availability Effects on Cereal Yield and Soil Chemical Properties in Northwest China
Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) and corn (Zea mays L.) rotation is important for the region's food security in Northwest China. Grain yield and water-use efficiency (WUE: grain yield/estimatedExpand
Long‐Term Effects of Tillage, Nitrogen, and Rainfall on Winter Wheat Yields in the Pacific Northwest
Sustainable cropping systems are essential for agronomic, economic, and environmental reasons. Data from a winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)/summer fallow rotation experiment, in eastern Oregon,Expand
Canopy Temperature Depression Sampling to Assess Grain Yield and Genotypic Differentiation in Winter Wheat
Canopy temperature depression (CTD = air temperature (Ta) - canopy temperature (Tc)) has been used to estimate crop yield and to rank genotypes for tolerance to heat and drought, but when to measureExpand
On-farm biological control of the pearl millet head miner: realization of 35 years of unsteady progress in Mali, Burkina Faso and Niger
The pearl millet head miner became a major pest in the West African Sahel during the droughts of 1972–1974, and has since remained a threat to food security. Pesticide control is unrealistic forExpand
Deficiencies in the soil quality concept and its application
Soil quality is a concept that has deeply divided the soil science community. It has been institutionalized and advocated without full consideration of concept weaknesses and contradictions. OurExpand
Quantitative trait locus mapping of the transpiration ratio related to preflowering drought tolerance in sorghum (Sorghum bicolor).
To meet future food needs, grain production must increase despite reduced water availability, so waterproductivity must rise. One way to do this is to raise the ratio of biomass produced to waterExpand
Soil Phosphorus Availability and Pearl Millet Water-Use Efficiency
The effects of P and water stress on transpirational water-use efficiency (WUET) of pearl millet (Pennisetum glaucum) cv. ICTP 8203 were studied in outdoor pot and growth chamber experiments. PlantsExpand
