Hail nets do not affect the efficacy of metamitron for chemical thinning of apple tree
(Journal of Horticultural Science and Biotechnology, 2019-06-19)
Hail nets reduce photosynthetically active radiation (PAR) and alter the environment under the netting in apple orchards. Thus, we investigated the effect of nets on the efficacy of metamitron, a short-term photosynthesis ...
Preserving habitat quality at local and landscape scales increases wild bee diversity in intensive farming systems
(Agriculture, Ecosystems and Environment, 2019-02-13)
Biological diversity is influenced by many environmental factors, which can act either at a local scale (e.g. quality and quantity of feeding and nesting resources, habitat type) or at a landscape scale (e.g. habitat ...
Differential irrigation scheduling by an automated algorithm of water balance tuned by capacitance-type soil moisture sensors
(Agricultural Water Management, 2019-11-07)
Automated software tools are required to undertake the routine tasks and decision-making involved in scheduling irrigation. A key issue in this topic is how to integrate sensors in the scheduling approach. The objectives ...
Shelf life improvement of the biocontrol agent Candida sake CPA-1 by suitable package and storage conditions
Agrochemical companies are increasing their interest in the production of biopesticides based on biocontrol agents (BCAs), mainly due to the need to reduce the synthetic fungicide application and the consequent benefits ...
Multi-environment QTL analysis using an updated genetic map of a widely distributed Seri × Babax spring wheat population
(Molecular Breeding, 2019-08-30)
Seri/Babax spring wheat RIL population was developed to minimize the confounding effect of phenology in the genetic dissection of abiotic stress traits. An existing linkage map (< 500 markers) was updated with 6470 polymorphic ...
