Crop yield response and recovery of nutrients applied as thin stillage in a Black Chernozem
Rapid increase in ethanol production from cereal grain to substitute fossil fuel has resulted also in different types of byproduct associated with its production. One of these byproducts is thin stillage. Thin stillage is ...
Reduced diversity of AM fungi in annually cropped fields of the Canadian prairie
The arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi are important service providers to agriculture that are impacted by certain cultural practices. We assessed the status of AM fungal resources in the Prairie, from the Grey to the Brown ...
Nitrogen supply from belowground residues of lentil and wheat to a subsequent wheat crop
Lentil (Lens culinaris) plants can form an association with rhizobia and thereby biologically fix much of the nitrogen (N) required for their growth. This not only reduces the need for expensive N fertilizer when the lentil ...
Soil fertility research and extension in Oregon
This report describes our approach to and philosophy behind development of soil fertility research and Extension programs at Oregon State University since 1980. Three examples describe how fertilizer management was used ...
Distribution of mycorrhizal fungi in different soil zone with pyrosequencing approach
We collected 83 soil samples distributed in all five soil types of Saskatchewan, and amplified 18s rDNA as our target DNA segment with primer pairs NS1/NS4 and AMV4.5NF/AMDGR. Sequencing results show that there is rich ...
Elucidating the mystery of the tripartite symbiosis plant – mycorrhizal fungi – dark septate endophytes
This study provides information on the tripartite symbiotic relationships formed by arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) and dark septate endophytes (DSE) in crops growing in the semiarid region of the Canadian Prairie. ...
