Despite a modest status in terms of world trade, lentil (Lens culinaris) is a key food crop in many parts of Africa and Asia. In the Middle East, where lentil straw is a valuable feed, and in the Palouse region of the USA, where organic residues in the soil surface layer are critical in helping to...

The effect of allelopathic interactions on crop growth and yield under monoculture, crop rotations and agroforestry, the influence of crops on weeds and weeds on crops, and allelochemicals, are discussed in this review. Allelopathic interactions between plants and other organisms offer alternative...

Soil erosion and loss of inherent soil fertility are major problems throughout the tropics and subtropics. The greater use of cover and/or green manure annual legume crops is suggested as one way by which these problems might be redressed. However, to determine which of the many potentially useful...

This review deals with the biological basis of yield production in winter barley, highlighting those aspects which appear to be amenable to manipulation by plant growth regulators (PGRs). This is followed by sections on application of PGRs to barley seed, modifications to crop structure,...

In potato and numerous other species the environment appears to regulate competition between shoot and storage-organ growth. Low temperatures, short photoperiods, high irradiance and low nitrogen supply appear to restrict shoot growth and promote tuberization. Present information indicates that...
