Combining Spatial and Temporal Corn Silage Yield Variability for Management Zone Development
1 ABSTRACT Precision agriculture requires an understanding of yield variability. The objectives of this study were to (i) document the temporal and spatial variability of corn (Zea mays L.) silage
Innovation in Sustainable Management of Plant Diseases and Pests, and Effects on the Environment
The increasing World population requires high quantities and guaranteed quality of food with high nutritional value and little or no residues of synthetic pesticides. Therefore, it is mandatory to
Improving resource productivity at a crop sequence level
The challenge to increase agricultural production with a minimum environmental impact requires to reach the maximum efficiency in the capture and use of resources such as photosynthetically active
Shifting cultivation geographies in the Central and Eastern US
Climate change is projected to transform agricultural systems around the globe. Though climate strongly influences where and how farmers cultivate, millennia of agricultural innovation have expanded
Threats to Arable Land of the World
Arable lands are the major source of food production worldwide. Increasing crop cultivation in the response to population pressure and the use of synthetic fertilizers and chemicals are the main


Maize Yield as Affected by Water Availability, Soil Depth, and Crop Management
The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of rainfall, soil depth, and crop management practices on the yield of dryland maize (Zea mays L.) crops of the Argentine Pampas. We were
