Ammonium Improves Corn Phosphorus Acquisition Through Changes in the Rhizosphere Processes and Root Morphology
(Pedosphere, 2019-08-01) [Carta]
A molecular framework for the embryo growth in germinating seeds of Solanum lycocarpum A. St.-Hil., a nurse plant species
(Annals of Applied Biology, 2019-01-01) [Artigo]
We are clarifying how the functional embryo growth occurs in germinating seeds of Solanum lycocarpum A. St.-Hil., a nurse plant with a central role in forest dynamics in the Cerrado (a biodiversity hotspot). For that, we ...
Influence of the storage environment on the physiological quality of millet seeds (Pennisetum glaucum (L.) R. Br.)
(Journal Of Seed Science, 2019-07-01) [Artigo]
Millet is a species of the grass family used in cattle pastures, for hay, for silage, and in soil cover in notillage systems. However, studies on seed production and post-harvest techniques for this species have not been ...
Use of stable isotopes of carbon to detect coconut water adulteration
(Scientia Agricola, 2019-05-01) [Artigo]
Industrialized coconut water may have been adulterated by adding sugar above the limit permitted by law. According to Brazilian law, industrialized coconut water can receive the maximum addition of 1 g of sugar per 100 mL ...
Phosphorus availability and dynamics in soil affected by long-term ruzigrass cover crop
(Geoderma, 2019-03-01) [Artigo]
The use of grasses as cover crops in the off-season of cash crops under no-till has been largely adopted. However, soil phosphorus (P) uptake was previously shown to be reduced when ruzigrass is introduced in the rotation, ...
Nitrogen management of forage grasses for nutrition, seed production, and nutrients in residual straw
(Pesquisa Agropecuaria Brasileira, 2019-01-01) [Artigo]
The objective of this work was to evaluate the nutrition, accumulation of nutrients in residual straw, pure seed yield, and seed quality of the tropical forage grasses 'Mombaca' and 'Xaraes' subjected to topdressing with ...
Irrigated safflower at different phenological stages of Brazilian southeast dry seasonCártamo irrigado em diferentes estágios fenológicos na estação seca do sudeste brasileiro
(IRRIGA, 2019-01-02) [Artigo]
This study was conducted in order to determine the effect of irrigation regime imposed on development stages over safflower growth components (Carthamus tinctorius L.) in Engenheiro Coelho, SP, Brazil. The work was conducted ...
Nitrogen source and rate effects on irrigated potato in tropical sandy soils
(Agronomy Journal, 2019-01-01) [Artigo]
A suitable N source and an optimal application rate can improve the N-use efficiency of potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) while minimizing N losses, especially when potato is grown in sandy soils. Three experiments were conducted ...
Gypsum application, soil fertility and cotton root growth
(Bragantia, 2019-04-01) [Artigo]
Since there is no consensus on phosphogypsum (PG) rates to be used in agriculture, a better understanding of its effects on the soil solution is needed. Cotton root growth was evaluated as related to Al and Ca activity in ...
Shading and Nitrogen Effects on Cotton Earliness Assessed by Boll Yield Distribution
(Crop Science, 2019-03-01) [Artigo]
Shading and N fertilization affect fruit distribution in cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.), but there is no detailed information on earliness of crop maturity according to phenological development. The aim of this work was ...
