Abstract

Anti-hail (protective) netting was originally developed to protect horticultural crops from hail damage. Netting reduces the amount and modifies the light reaching the orchard canopy. It also has the potential to optimize conditions for canopy and fruit growth and mitigate abiotic stress as climate ...

Abstract

Sorghum bicolor is a C4 plant that is normally associated with diazotrophs. Inoculation with selected bacteria can improve plant growth, biological nitrogen fixation (BNF) and nutrient uptake. Therefore, the objective of the current study was to evaluate the ability of twenty-two diazotroph strains ...

Abstract

Apple replant disease (ARD) is a disorder that affects apple trees when they are replanted in soil where the same species was previously grown. ARD has been known for a long time, but the precise cause is not yet identified. Although ARD is most probably due to a combination of abiotic and biotic...

Abstract

Understanding the influence of soil properties and cultural practices on the communities of plant-feeding nematodes (PFNs) in agrosystems is a prerequisite for cost-efficient and environment-friendly pest control. Although plantain is a staple food crop in the Caribbean, the relationships between...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to understand the differences in physicochemical and microbial soil quality resulting from the use of either wheat straw or black polyethylene, two widely used practices in strawberry cultivation. Soil samples were collected from strawberry crops used during 4 years as...

Abstract

Owing to the growing sensitivity of forests to drought under the warming climate, more attention should be paid to the role of soil drought, plant-plant interactions, tree species and structural diversity, and other abiotic factors on the crown die-back of trees. We studied how permanent soil water ...

Abstract

High daytime temperatures during the grain filling stage in rice have negative impacts on milling quality traits. In this study, we used growth chambers to evaluate the influence of high daytime temperature (33°C) during grain filling, together with grain moisture content at harvest (26%, 18% and...
