Studies on the effect of exogenous amino acid application on nematodes
Plant parasitic nematodes are considered as key pathogens in agricultural crop production. They cause substantial yield losses in numerous crops and across all climatic regions worldwide. Antagonistic effects on various ......
Insights into the salt stress adaptation mechanisms of bread wheat genotypes using a systemic approach
Bread wheat is one of the most important crops for the human diet but the increasing soil salinization is causing yield reductions worldwide. The development of appropriate cultivars requires the elucidation of mechanisms ...
Phenotyping of wheat resistance to Fusarium head blight using hyperspectral imaging
The integrated management of Fusarium head blight (FHB) on wheat depends on the implementation of agricultural practices, cultivation of resistant varieties, and fungicides application. Reducing yield losses and mycotoxin ......
Characterization of mechanisms of resistance in Spodoptera frugiperda to synthetic insecticides and insecticidal proteins
Fall armyworm (FAW), Spodoptera frugiperda(J.E. Smith), is a major lepidopteran pest of maize in the American continent butitis now present in 107 countries worldwide. The control of FAW has relied mainly on the ...
Interactive tillage & crop residue management effects on soil properties, crop nutrient uptake & yield in different weathered soils of West Africa: measurements, modelling & scenario simulations
Sustainable crop production intensification in West Africa is hampered by constraints such as soil degradation, mainly due to excessive mining of soil nutrients, topsoil loss by surface runoff, and climatic factors like ...
