Silicon Compensates Phosphorus Deficit-Induced Growth Inhibition by Improving Photosynthetic Capacity, Antioxidant Potential, and Nutrient Homeostasis in Tomato

The results reveal that Si mitigates LP stress by improving photosynthetic capacity, antioxidant potential, and nutrient homeostasis and that it can be used for agronomic management of vegetable crops in P-deficient soils.

Combined Application of Inorganic and Organic Phosphorous with Inoculation of Phosphorus Solubilizing Bacteria Improved Productivity, Grain Quality and Net Economic Returns of Pearl Millet (Pennisetum glaucum [L.] R. Br.)

Pearl millet (Pennisetum glaucum [L.] R. Br.) is a climate-smart cereal crop for environments prone to drought and heat stresses. Pearl millet is cultivated in Pakistan on marginal soils with

Combined doses of nitrogen and phosphorus in conilon coffee plants: changes in absorption, translocation and use in plant compartments

The combination with different levels of N and P in fertilization interferes with the nutrition of Coffea canephora seedlings, and these combinations are an alternative for use in the cultivation of conilon coffee, since these combinations enabled a more efficient use of nitrogen and phosphate fertilizers.

Biopesticides in Sustainable Agriculture: Current Status and Future Prospects

Intensive application of synthetic pesticides was the routine practice of commercial agriculture during the Green Revolution to boost agricultural productivity to meet global food demand. Alongside

Cycling of reduced phosphorus compounds in soil and potential impacts of climate change

Soil phosphorus (P) remains an ever‐increasing topic of importance, notably for its key role as a nutrient for driving food production but with parallel concerns over damaging water quality, all

Lime equivalence of organic manures and scope of their utilization as acid soil amendments

ABSTRACT The effectiveness of organic manures (pig, poultry and farmyard manure, compost and vermicompost) as acid soil amendment for addressing Al toxicity and P deficiency was investigated using

Fertilization and Soil Microbial Community: A Review

The present paper reviews the most recent advances regarding the effects of chemical and organic fertilizers on soil microbial communities. Based on the results from the articles considered, some



Physiological and molecular approaches for improving phosphorus uptake efficiency of crops.

Various plant responses to P stress and molecular strategies that could be used to develop plants efficient in P acquisition are covered.

Phosphate nutrition: improving low-phosphate tolerance in crops.

The current advances in research on the complex network of plant responses to low-phosphorus stress are outlined and some strategies used to manipulate genes involved in phosphate uptake, remobilization, and metabolism to develop low-Phosphate-tolerant crops are discussed, which could help in designing more efficient crops.

Genetic approaches to enhancing phosphorus-use efficiency (PUE) in crops: challenges and directions

Stronger interaction between molecular science and the traditional disciplines of plant breeding, crop physiology, soil science, and agronomy will allow new opportunities to study genetic differences in PUE, bringing P-efficient crops closer to reality.

Phosphorus acquisition and use: critical adaptations by plants for securing a nonrenewable resource.

Physiological, biochemical, and molecular studies of white lupin and other species response to P-deficiency have identified targets that may be useful for plant improvement, and Genomic approaches involving identification of expressed sequence tags found under low-P stress may also yield target sites for plant improved.

Opportunities for improving phosphorus-use efficiency in crop plants.

Improved P-use efficiency can be achieved by plants that have overall lower P concentrations, and by optimal distribution and redistribution of P in the plant allowing maximum growth and biomass allocation to harvestable plant parts.


Invariably, many agricultural soils of the world are deficient in one or more of the essential nutrients needed to support healthy plants. Acidity, alkalinity, salinity, anthropogenic processes,

Genetic responses to phosphorus deficiency.

It is suggested that knowledge of the genes whose expression changes in response to P deficiency might allow the development of crops with improved PUE, and could be used in diagnostic techniques to monitor P deficiency in crops either directly using 'smart' indicator plants or indirectly through transcript profiling.
