    The Effect of Reduced Rainfall on Root Plasticity of Soybeans in Inter-cropping and Agroforestry Systems Introduction Prior to 1965, agricultural systems depended mostly on the cycling of internal resources, in-situ biological control mechanisms and natural rainfall patterns (Evenson and Gollin, 2003). Food-crop productivity was modestly stable until the introduction of the Green Revolution (GR) where extensive agricultural research has led to the development of heavy machineries, advanced irrigation

  • Development Of Soybean Cultivars With Multiple Nematodes Resistance Essay

    919 Words  | 4 Pages

    In the mid-1950s, the first SCN resistance soybean sources, PI 90763 and PI 84751 and cultivars Ilsoy and Peking, were identified (Ross and Brim 1957). During the last 20 years, more than 120 soybean germplasm with SCN resistance have been reported (Concibido et al. 2004; Vuong et al. 2013). However, most of them present resistance to only one or few SCN races and only eight soybean germplasm including Peking, PI 88788, and PI 437654 have widely been used for breeding programs in the US (Vuong et

  • Using Resistant Soybean Cultivar And Crop Rotation

    794 Words  | 4 Pages

    Soybean cyst management tactics include different method from place to place, but all have the common method of using resistant soybean cultivar and crop rotation and these are found to be more effective than others.(Niblack et al., 2003, Schmitt et al., 2004). Lotus japonicus is one of the important model leguminous plant to study the interaction and compatibility of plant parasitic nematode to cause infection (Lohar & Bird, 2003). There are large number of resistant soybean cultivar to SCN and

  • Corn-Soybean Rotament : The Area Of Interest In The Yellow Area

    area takes up exactly 201.5 acres, however the eastern part of this farm has a stream running through it, thus, not making that portion usable. The components and locations of this farm can be seen below in Figure 1. The components include a corn-soybean rotation (yellow), pasture area (purple), corn-oats-hay-hay rotation (green), and a non-income-generating area where a house and sheds for cattle and machinery will be located (red). This farm is designed to raise a 50 head cow-calf operation where

  • What Is The Profitability Of The U. S. Corn And Soybean Market Prices?

    1017 Words  | 5 Pages

    The U.S. continues to be a leading player worldwide in exporting soybeans and corn. Causing a chain reaction with the climate change, and high fuel prices have caused a spike in the crops prices. As a response, we have seen a large cutback in the U.S. international market shares of soybeans and corn. As we grow stronger rivals in the markets with the higher U.S. dollar relative have led to the major loss of U.S. corn and soybean market shares. Profitability in the cattle industry is heavily determined
