Monitoring crop evapotranspiration and crop coefficients over an almond and pistachio orchard throughout remote sensing
(Remote Sensing, 2018-12-10)
In California, water is a perennial concern. As competition for water resources increases due to growth in population, California’s tree nut farmers are committed to improving the efficiency of water used for food production. ...
How does peach fruit set on sylleptic shoots borne on epicormics compare with fruit set on proleptic shoots?
(European Journal of Horticultural Science, 2018-02-22)
Proleptic and epicormic shoots on peach (Prunus persica) have different growth characteristics that have management implications for peach production. Proleptic shoots arise from buds after a dormant period, and are ...
The importance of including soil carbon changes, ecotoxicity and biodiversity impacts in environmental life cycle assessments of organic and conventional milk in Western Europe
(Journal of Cleaner Production, 2019-01-04)
Estimates of soil carbon changes, biodiversity and ecotoxicity have often been missing from life cycle assessment based studies of organic dairy products, despite evidence that the impacts of organic and conventional ...
Environmental accounting of closed-loop maize production scenarios: Manure as fertilizer and inclusion of catch crops
(Resources, Conservation and Recycling, 2019-04-09)
The agri-food sector has moved towards a more linear production economy, partly caused by worldwide food demand. One clear example is the intensification of livestock production, with consequent manure-management and ...
Effects of partially saturated conditions on the metabolically active microbiome and on nitrogen removal in vertical subsurface flow constructed wetlands
(Water Research, 2018-05-08)
Nitrogen dynamics and its association to metabolically active microbial populations were assessed in two vertical subsurface vertical flow (VF) wetlands treating urban wastewater. These VF wetlands were operated in parallel ...
Anaerobic digestion and electromethanogenic microbial electrolysis cell integrated system: Increased stability and recovery of ammonia and methane
(Renewable Energy, 2017-12-18)
The integration of anaerobic digestion (AD) and a microbial electrolysis cell (MEC) with an electromethanogenic biocathode is proposed to increase the stability and robustness of the AD process against organic and nitrogen ...
