Cover Crop Effect On Subsequent Wheat Yield In The Central Great Plains, David Nielsen, Drew Lyon, Robert Higgins, Gary Hergert, Johnathon Holman, Merle Vigil 2016 Washington State University

Cover Crop Effect On Subsequent Wheat Yield In The Central Great Plains, David Nielsen, Drew Lyon, Robert Higgins, Gary Hergert, Johnathon Holman, Merle Vigil

David C. Nielsen

Crop production systems in the water-limited environment of the semiarid central Great Plains may not have potential to profitably use cover crops because of lowered subsequent wheat (Triticum asestivum L.) yields following the cover crop. Mixtures have reportedly shown less yield-reducing effects on subsequent crops than single-species plantings. This study was conducted to determine winter wheat yields following both mixtures and single-species plantings of spring-planted cover crops. The study was conducted at Akron, CO, and Sidney, NE, during the 2012–2013 and 2013–2014 wheat growing seasons under both rainfed and irrigated conditions. Precipitation storage efficiency before wheat planting, wheat ...

Cours Enzymologie Fondamentale Et Appliquée (Niveau Master 1), Mamoudou H. DICKO, Prof. 2016

Cours Enzymologie Fondamentale Et Appliquée (Niveau Master 1), Mamoudou H. Dicko, Prof.

Pr. Mamoudou H. DICKO, PhD

L'objectif principal de ce cours est de rappeler et donner aux étudiants les connaissances indispensables en enzymologie appliquée, à savoir :
- connaître la structure des enzymes, les méthodes d’extraction, de purification, de dosage et de caractérisation (électrophorèse, zymographie, etc.) des enzymes ;
- comprendre les principes fondamentaux de la cinétique chimique et la cinétique enzymatique y compris le rôle des inhibiteurs et autres effecteurs;
- comprendre les méthodes d’immobilisation des enzymes et leurs conséquences positives ou négatives dans la biocatalyse enzymatique;
- comprendre les différends domaines d’utilisation des enzymes en biochimie analytique, bio-industries, industrie agro-alimentaires, analyses bio-médicales, en diagnostic, etc.

Corn Era Hybrid Response To Nitrogen Fertilization, Krishna P. Woli, Matthew J. Boyer, Roger W. Elmore, John E. Sawyer, Lori J. Abendroth, Daniel W. Barker 2016 Iowa State University

Corn Era Hybrid Response To Nitrogen Fertilization, Krishna P. Woli, Matthew J. Boyer, Roger W. Elmore, John E. Sawyer, Lori J. Abendroth, Daniel W. Barker

Agronomy & Horticulture -- Faculty Publications

Corn (Zea mays L.) N use is of continued interest due to agronomic performance and environmental issues. This 2-yr study evaluated era hybrid response to fertilizer nitrogen (FN) rate in a factorial arrangement of one popular hybrid per five decades (1960–2000 eras) and five N rates (0–224 kg N ha–1). An additional hybrid per era was grown at 168 kg N ha–1. Hybrid productivity and nitrogen use efficiency (NUE) increased across the eras, but not between the 1980 and 1990 eras. Grain yield (GY) increased 65% and total plant biomass 43%, however, total plant nitrogen uptake ...


Plant Functional Trait And Hyperspectral Reflectance Responses To Comp B Exposure: Efficacy Of Plants As Landmine Detectors, Paul V. Manley II 2016 Virginia Commonwealth University

Plant Functional Trait And Hyperspectral Reflectance Responses To Comp B Exposure: Efficacy Of Plants As Landmine Detectors, Paul V. Manley Ii

Theses and Dissertations

At least 110 million landmines have been planted since the 1970s in about 70 nations, many of which remain in place today. Some risk of detection may be mitigated using currently available remote sensing techniques when vegetation is present. My study focused on using plants as phytosensors to detect buried explosives. I exposed three species representing different functional types (Cyperus esculentus (sedge), Ulmus alata (tree), Vitis labrusca (vine)) to 500 mg kg-1 of Composition B (Comp B; 60/40 mixture of hexahydro-1,3,5-trinitro-1,3,5-triazine (RDX) and 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT)), a commonly used explosive mixture, and measured ...

Subfield Profitability Analysis Reveals An Economic Case For Cropland Diversification, Elke Brandes, Gabriel S. Mcnunn, Lisa A. Schulte, Ian J. Bonner, David J. Muth Jr., Bruce A. Babcock, Bhavna Sharma, Emily A. Heaton

Agronomy Publications

Public agencies and private enterprises increasingly desire to achieve ecosystem service outcomes in agricultural systems, but are limited by perceived conflicts between economic and ecosystem service goals and a lack of tools enabling effective operational management. Here we use Iowa—an agriculturally homogeneous state representative of the Maize Belt—to demonstrate an economic rationale for cropland diversification at the subfield scale. We used a novel computational framework that integrates disparate but publicly available data to map ~3.3 million unique potential management polygons (9.3 Mha) and reveal subfield opportunities to increase overall field profitability. We analyzed subfield profitability for ...


What Would The Babel Fish Say?, Monica Gagliano 2016 The University of Western Australia

What Would The Babel Fish Say?, Monica Gagliano

Animal Sentience: An Interdisciplinary Journal on Animal Feeling

Starting with its title, Key’s (2016) target article advocates the view that fish do not feel pain. The author describes the neuroanatomical, physiological and behavioural conditions involved in the experience of pain in humans and rodents and confidently applies analogical arguments as though they were established facts in support of the negative conclusion about the inability of fish to feel pain. The logical reasoning, unfortunately, becomes somewhat incoherent, with the arbitrary application of the designated human criteria for an analogical argument to one animal species (e.g., rodents) but not another (fish). Research findings are reported selectively, and questionable ...
