Crop rotations involving corn (Zea mays L.) and soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.] are well-known production systems across the Midwestern United States, but the addition of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) in the rotation has received less attention. Additionally, the interactive effect of crop rotation with nitrogen (N) fertilizer and foliar fungicide application on yields for these three crops is not yet well understood. Data were collected in Wisconsin from a long-term crop rotation experiment…

Comparing High- and Low-Input Management on Soybean Yield and Profitability in Michigan

Increased commodity prices, commercial marketing, and convenience have encouraged soybean [ Glycine max (L.) Merr.] producers to adopt high-input management systems for maximum grain yield regardless

The Development of Winter Wheat Yield and Quality under Different Fertilizer Regimes and Soil-Climatic Conditions in the Czech Republic

Farmers must adapt to the changes brought about by the changing climate and market requirements. These adaptations are associated with fertilization—the availability of organic manures and mineral

Wheat grain and straw yield, grain quality, and disease benefits associated with increased management intensity

Winter wheat is a very important crop in the U.S. where an average of 53 million acres have been planted since 2000, but yield gains have plateaued in many wheatproducing regions, including in the US.

Temporal and Spectral Optimization of Vegetation Indices for Estimating Grain Nitrogen Uptake and Late-Seasonal Nitrogen Traits in Wheat

A good general potential is suggested for estimating GNup and total Nup by red edge indices best used during milk and early dough ripeness, and when SVIs were quantitatively ranked by data subsets, a better agreement was found for GNup, total N up, and grain N concentration than for several contributing N traits.

Modeling the relationship between estimated foliar fungicide use and soybean yield losses due to foliar fungal diseases in the United States

Evidence is provided of the potential usefulness of foliar fungicide applications to mitigate soybean yield losses associated with foliar diseases and their potential to positively impact soybean production/yield at national and regional scales although discrepancies to the general trends observed at nationaland regional scales do prevail at the local (state) level.

Temporal and Organ-specific Responses in NUE Traits to N Fertilization, Fungicide Intensity and Early Sowing in Winter Wheat Cultivars

The results demonstrate the positive effects of fungicides and earlier sowing on various traits related to yield formation and the efficient use of nitrogen and are discussed based on various concepts.

Modeling the relationship between estimated fungicide use and disease-associated yield losses of soybean in the United States I: Foliar fungicides vs foliar diseases

The relationship between soybean yield and fungicide use was significant and positive for majority of the years in the study and suggested the possible influence of temporally fluctuating abiotic factors on the effectiveness of foliar fungicides and/or target disease occurrence and associated loss magnitudes.



Corn and Soybean Yield Response to Tillage, Rotation, and Nematicide Seed Treatment

The production system that involved yearly rotation of corn and soybean, regardless of tillage system and nematicide seed treatment, exhibited the greatest yield potential during the 3 yr of this study.

Tillage and crop rotation affect corn, soybean, and winter wheat yields

The objectives of this study were to determine whether corn or soybean yields could be increased in 3-yr rotations with wheat compared with an annual rotation with each other, and to evaluate the influence of tillage on performance of corn, soybean, and winter wheat in rotationsWith each other.

Yield Response to Crop/Genotype Rotations and Fungicide Use to Manage Fusarium‐related Diseases

Although interactions were not consistent for all three crops, the results suggest growers should begin with combining a highyield-potential cultivar, regardless of its susceptibility or resistance to Fusarium pathogens, in a CSW crop rotation to maximize yield potential when managing FUSarium-related diseases.

Environment Affects the Corn and Soybean Rotation Effect

The commonly practiced annual rotation of corn and soybean maximized corn yields, but not soybean yields, relative to the other sequences studied, and in low-yielding environments, the yield advantage of this annual rotation compared with monoculture was frequently greater than 25%.

Influence of Rotation Sequence on the Optimum Corn and Soybean Plant Population

Rotation sequence and plant population are important management considerations for maximum yield. Response of corn (Zea mays L.) and soybean [Glycine max L. (Merr.)] to changes in plant population,

Corn–Soybean Rotation Effects on Soil Water Depletion

The positive yield effect of crop rotation may be linked to enhanced water uptake and associated efficient use. We hypothesized that a crop grown in rotation might deplete soil water more than the

Crop Rotation and Tillage Effects on Corn Growth and Soil Structural Stability

Increasing concerns about soil degradation with continuous corn (Zea mays L.) production and a scarcity of scientific information regarding corn grown in rotation with the diversity of crops produced

Corn and soybean response to rotation sequence, row spacing, and tillage system

Row spacing less than 76 cm for corn (Zea mays L.) and soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr. .] is becoming more common. However, little information is available on row spacing in different rotation

Findings suggest that changes in regional tillage practices, principally the move toward conservation tillage and reduced-till systems, contributed to the recent FHB epidemics in the Upper Midwest.
