Agriculture faces great challenges to ensure global food security by increasing yields while reducing environmental costs. Here we address this challenge by conducting a total of 153 site-year field experiments covering the main agro-ecological areas for rice, wheat and maize production in China. A set of integrated soil-crop system management practices(More)
Dynamic metabolomics studies can provide a systematic view of the metabolic trajectory during disease development and drug treatment and reveal the nature of biological processes at metabolic level. To extract important information in a systematic time dimension rather than at isolated time points, a weighted method based on the means and variations along(More)
Mineral cycling plays a critical role in wetland ecosystem functions and can be affected by environmental changes, such as CO2 enrichment. Learning the responses of mineral bioavailability in wetlands to elevated CO2 under field conditions will provide enormous benefits to the assessment of climate change impacts on wetland ecosystems. A free-air CO2(More)
Temperature and moisture effects on organic carbon (C) decomposition (i.e., CO2 and CH4 emissions) determine the feedback of soil organic carbon (SOC) stocks in rice (Oryza sativa L.) paddies to climate change. In the present study, soils from a long-term (initiated in 1981) fertilization experiment [unfertilized control, combined inorganic nitrogen,(More)
Developing large rice (Oryza sativa L.) panicles has been widely regarded as an effective approach to increasing rice yield. However, it is unclear whether panicle size affects CH4 emissions from rice fields, especially during the reproductive stage. Here, we conducted two experiments (rice variety and mutant) to examine the effects of rice panicle size on(More)
The stability of soil organic carbon (SOC) is of great importance in controlling long-term carbon (C) sequestration and feedbacks of soil C pools to climate change. It has been well documented that rice cropping and organic amendments could enhance SOC stocks, while the stability of the sequestered C has not been well understood yet. The objective of this(More)
A better understanding of the actual impacts of nighttime warming on winter wheat growth will assist in breeding new varieties and agronomic innovation for food security under future climates. A 3-year experiment was conducted over an entire growth period of winter wheat using a passive warming facility in North China. An increase of 1.1 °C in mean(More)
