Managing water and fertilizer for sustainable agricultural intensification
Nutrient use efficiency (NUE) is a critically important concept in the evaluation of crop production systems. It can be greatly impacted by fertilizer management as well as by soiland plant-water

Effect of brackish water irrigation and straw mulching on soil salinity and crop yields under monsoonal climatic conditions
Fresh water shortages are severally restricting sustainable agriculture development in the North China Plain. The scarcity of fresh water has forced farmers to use brackish water from shallow
Evolution of the plow over 10,000 years and the rationale for no-till farming
Abstract Agriculture and the plow originated 10–13 millennia ago in the Fertile Crescent of the Near East, mostly along the Tigris, Euphrates, Nile, Indus and Yangtze River valleys, and were
Groundwater table and salinity: Spatial and temporal distribution and influence on soil salinization in Khorezm region (Uzbekistan, Aral Sea Basin)
Groundwater (GW) management is an essential element in irrigated agriculture. This paper analyzes the temporal dynamics of GW table and salinity in Khorezm, a region of Uzbekistan which is situated
No-tillage and conventional tillage effects on durum wheat yield, grain quality and soil moisture content in southern Italy
It is concluded that NT performed better at Foggia with limited rainfall during the durum wheat growing season, was due to lower water evaporation from soil combined with enhanced soil water availability.
Decomposition of barley straw in a subarctic soil in the field
SummaryThe mass loss and N dynamics of barley stems and leaves, placed on the soil surface or buried, were examined over two summers. There was little difference in mass loss or N dynamics in straw
