Fertiliser-coating technology to improve the efficiency of copper uptake in pastures
(Fertilizer and Lime Research Centre, Massey University, 2018)
Current practice for trace element (TE) application is to admix granular trace elements in with macro-elemental fertilisers. Although the correct rate of trace elements per hectare can be applied, the distribution of the ...
Plantain silage quality under variable management practices
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2018-11-17)
Two studies investigated the effect of regrowth and additives on preservation and quality of plantain ensiled in spring using a micro-silage technique. Study 1 compared the effect of regrowth at four (4L), five (5L) or six ...
Impacts of ridge with plastic mulch-furrow irrigation on soil salinity, spring maize yield and water use efficiency in an arid saline area
(Elsevier B.V., 2018-03-31)
The inadequate soil and water management has resulted in ecological and environmental problems in Hetao Irrigation District, which is characterized by low precipitation, high evaporation and soil salinity issues. A two-year ...
Coupling effects of water and fertilizer on yield, water and fertilizer use efficiency of drip-fertigated cotton in northern Xinjiang, China
Xinjiang is the main cotton-growing region in China, but the shortage of water resources and the low utilization of fertilizers have restricted its agricultural development. Field experiments were conducted during 2012–2014 ...
Forage rape (Brassica napus L) seed quality: Impact of heat stress in the field during seed development
Climate change is predicted to increase the frequency of heat stress events during seed production. In two consecutive seasons, plants within a forage rape (Brassica napus L.) seed crop were covered with plastic sheeting ...
Fate of phosphorus applied to soil in pig slurry under cropping in southern Brazil
Strongly weathered soils (such as Oxisols), are inherently phosphorus (P) limiting and highly P-sorptive thus requiring continued P inputs for productive agriculture. Constant P inputs result in accumulation of soil P with ...
