Agronomy - Fertility needs in high-yielding corn production
2013 MAY 9 (VerticalNews) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Agriculture Week -- URBANA - Although advances in agronomy, breeding, and biotechnology have dramatically increased corn grain yields, soil test values indicate that producers may not be supplying optimal nutrient levels. Moreover, many current nutrient recommendations, developed decades ago using outdated agronomic management practices and lower-yielding, non-transgenic hybrids, may need adjusting. ...read more
Agronomy - Studies from Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in the Area of Agronomy Described
2013 MAY 2 (VerticalNews) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Agriculture Week -- Fresh data on Agronomy are presented in a new report. According to news reporting originating from Alnarp, Sweden, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "A cropping system was designed to fulfill the increasing demand for biomass for food and energy without decreasing long term soil fertility. Afield experiment was carried out including alternating strips of annual maize (Zea mays L.) and perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.) - clover (Trifolium repens + Trifolium pretense L.) mixture grown in the same field. ...read more
Agronomy - Studies in the Area of Agronomy Reported from D. Meziere and Co-Researchers
2013 MAY 2 (VerticalNews) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Agriculture Week -- Investigators publish new report on Agronomy. According to news reporting out of Dijon, France, by VerticalNews editors, research stated, "Integrated Weed Management (IWM) is necessary to reduce environmental damages by herbicides. The modifications required for IWM in cropping systems can result in unexpected side-effects, e.g. an increased risk of bioagressors other than weeds, either because the new cropping systems favour these bioagressors or because they favour weeds that are potential bioagressor hosts, thus increasing the contagion risk for crops. ...read more
