First year application effects of copper fertilizers on grain yield and quality of wheat
Copper (Cu) deficiency is often associated with coarse-textured soils. Wheat is probably the most sensitive cereal to Cu deficiency, though some cultivars of wheat are less affected by the Cu deficiency than others. The ...
Impact of topography and nitrogen fertility on canola and wheat diseases
Precision farming technology may offer the ability to increase current levels of grain production per unit cost by improving the efficiency of inputs. Canola diseases such as Sclerotinia, Alternaria and blackleg and wheat ...
Fire and iron: tools for disease management?
Large volumes of crop residue are often managed using tillage or burning. This study examined the effect of these practices on diseases of barley [leaf spots, Pyrenophora teres Drechsler and Cochliobolus sativus (Ito & ...
Impact of topography and management on diseases of canola and wheat
Crop productivity on hilly terrain may vary greatly from upper to lower slopes due to differences in fertility, moisture and micro-environment. Plant diseases are affected by these conditions, resulting in differences in ...
