Seventy years of data from the world’s longest grazed and irrigated pasture trials
(Springer Nature, 2021-02-10)
Pastures are the most widespread land use, globally. The Winchmore trials were established in 1948–1949 in Canterbury, New Zealand and examined either different rates of phosphorus (P) fertiliser on the same irrigation ...
We are the Earth and the Earth is us: How palates link foodscapes, landscapes, heartscapes, and thoughtscapes
(Frontiers Media SA, 2021-02-25)
Humans are participating in the sixth mass extinction, and for the first time in 200,000 years, our species may be on the brink of extinction. We are facing the greatest challenges we have ever encountered, namely how to ...
Reduced root water uptake of summer maize grown in water-repellent soils simulated by HYDRUS-1D
Soil water repellency (SWR) is an ubiquitous soil property, that has major effects on surface and subsurface water flow, soil erosion, and therefore also affects plant growth and development. Soil water repellency has been ...
Increased soil nitrogen supply enhances root-derived available soil carbon leading to reduced potential nitrification activity
Nitrogen (N) immobilisation by heterotrophic microorganisms is critical for reducing N losses from soils and ensuring a long-term supply of N to plants in grassland ecosystems. The supply of carbon (C) available to soil ...
