Yield Adjustment by Canola Grown at Different Plant Populations under Semiarid Conditions
Canola adjusted seed yield across a wide range of plant populations, although it did not compensate completely for the decreasing populations, and environmental conditions played a significant role in the expression of plasticity of canola. Expand
Response of Chickpea Yield to High Temperature Stress during Reproductive Development
Minimizing the exposure of chickpea to high temperature stress during pod development will increase pod fertility, seed set, and seed yield of the crop. Expand
Management options for minimizing the damage by ascochyta blight (Ascochyta Rabiei) in chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.)
This review summarizes the key crop management practices from the major chickpea growing areas in the world and recommends an integrated approach that combines all agronomic options, including cultivar selection, if they are to manage this disease economically and effectively. Expand
Spatial and temporal structuring of arbuscular mycorrhizal communities is differentially influenced by abiotic factors and host crop in a semi-arid prairie agroecosystem.
Individual AMF taxa were significantly correlated with pH, electrical conductivity, and phosphate flux, and these relationships were phylogenetically conserved at the genus level within the Glomeromycota. Expand
Canola and mustard response to short periods of temperature and water stress at different developmental stages
A growth chamber study was conducted to determine the effect of short periods of high temperature and water stress at different developmental stages on seed yield and yield components of Brassica crops. Expand
Lowering carbon footprint of durum wheat by diversifying cropping systems
Abstract Improving cropping systems may help mitigate greenhouse gas emissions. This study determined the carbon footprint of durum wheat ( Triticum turgidum L.) produced in diverse cropping systems.Expand
Phenological trends in winter wheat and spring cotton in response to climate changes in northwest China
There was a clear trend of climate warming during the study period, leading to the earliness of pseudo stem elongation, booting, anthesis, and ripening stages of winter wheat by 13.2 d and that of cotton by 10.4 d, respectively. Expand
Pulse Crops for the Northern Great Plains
Pea and lentil provided rotational benefits to wheat, mustard, and canola and benefitted most from being grown in wheat stubble, indicating a strong fit for diversified cropping systems on the semiarid northern Great Plains. Expand
Strategies for reducing the carbon footprint of field crops for semiarid areas. A review
The Earth’s climate is rapidly changing largely due to increasing anthropogenic greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Agricultural practices during crop production, food processing, and product marketingExpand
Long-term assessment of management of an annual legume green manure crop for fallow replacement in the Brown soil zone
This possibility of an annual legume green manure crop being used as a partial-fallow replacement to protect the soil against erosion and increase its N fertility is assessed, particularly when combined with a snow-trapping technique to replenish soil water used by the legume. Expand
