Crop and Pasture Science
Crop & Pasture Science (continuing Australian Journal of Agricultural Research) is an international scientific journal publishing significant outcomes of research into product quality and sustainability of crop and pasture systems. The journa´s primary focus is broad-scale cereals, grain legumes, oil seeds, tree crops, and pastures. Papers are encouraged that advance understanding in plant-based agricultural systems through the use of well-defined and original aims, innovative and rigorous experimental design, and strong interpretation. The journal embraces experimental approaches from molecular to whole systems level. The target readership of Crop & Pasture Science is agricultural scientists and plant biologists, industry, administrators, policy-makers, and others with an interest in the challenges and opportunities facing agricultural production. To facilitate accessibility and clarity, papers should address a hypothesis, and the Abstract should define the novel outcomes.

ABSTRACT: Climate change is affecting wheat production in Northern Europe, particularly drought and soil warming during anthesis may cause significant yield losses of the crop. In order to search for genotypes tolerant to these stresses, the physiological responses of three spring wheat cultivars to increased soil temperature (3°C above normal) (H), drought (D) and their combination (HD) were investigated. The plants were grown in pots in a climate controlled greenhouse. Stomata conductance (gs), photosynthesis (A), leaf water potential (Ψl), and relative water content (RWC) were measured during the treatment period. The responses of those variables to soil drying (both for D and HD) were described by a linear-plateau model, indicating the soil water thresholds at which the variables started to decrease in relation to the control plants. H treatment alone hardly affected the variables whereas both D and HD had significant effects. gs was the most sensitive variable to soil drying, followed by A, l, and RWC. Among the three cultivars, earlier stomatal closure during drought in Alora could be a good adaptive strategy to conserve soil water for a prolonged drought, but may not benefit under intermittent drought conditions. A later stomatal closure and declining in A for Scirocco under HD and D stresses would be a favorable trait to sustain productivity under intermittent drought. A lower soil water threshold of gs associated with a later decrease in A for the Scirocco implies that the cultivar was less susceptible to HD and D stresses at anthesis.
