Zinc (Zn) deficiency is a fairly widespread agronomic constraint in many of the world cereal production regions. Zinc is an imperative micronutrient required for optimum plant growth. Low Zn availability in about 50% of the global land resulted in Zn deficiency in cereal grains. A two-year field experiment was conducted at Agronomy Research Farm, T...

Current trends in population growth suggest that global food production is unlikely to meet future demands under projected climate change scenarios unless the pace of plant improvement is accelerated. Plant production is facing many challenges due to changing environmental conditions and the growing demand for new plant-derived materials. These cha...
Chapter
Global climate changes such as increasing CO2 levels, temperature increases, drought, etc., have been shown to adversely affect agricultural products. Weeds can be seen as a major problem because they seem to fight at the expense of the crop for resources such as light, water, and nutrients. Weed species are commonly favored in crops that are more...
Chapter
Abiotic stressors have been demonstrated to have a significant impact on plant development and agricultural production, and yields have been clearly stalled or dropped in economically important crops where only large inputs ensure high yields. The latest manifestations of climate changes are thought to have exacerbated the detrimental impacts of ab...

Phosphorus (P) unavailability and lack of organic matter in calcareous soils under semiarid climates are major reasons for low maize productivity grown in these conditions. The hypothesis was tested that integrated use of bio-fertilizers (BF) and P-sources could improve dry matter (DM) partitioning and yield of hybrid maize (CS-200) in the semiarid...

Salinity is one of the main factors in reducing crop output due to poor plant growth. According to scientists, salinity affect the growth of crops in two ways: through the osmotic effect, which reduces the plants’ ability to absorb water and retard growth; and through ionic toxicity, which means that salts can enter the perspiration system and dama...

Abstract. Soil salinity is a serious environmental threat with varied effects on several aspects of growth and production of plants. Recently, however, the utilization of chitosan in agriculture has increased as it enhances the resistance of crop plants to different stresses factors such as salinity. In this experiment, the effects of chitosan see...

Microorganisms has a vital role in agriculture in order to promote the exchange of plant nutrients and reduce the application of chemical fertilizers. The crucial factor controlling the growth and nitrogen fixation of Azospirillum in the soil is drought, i.e. high temperature and low moisture and salinity. Nevertheless, the crops are highly adapted...

Phosphorus is an essential constituent of many organic components of biological importance. The deficiency of phosphorus impairs growth and reproductive process; phosphorus cannot be replaced by any another element in all respects and is uniquely associated with essential metabolites. Phosphorus is required for proper growth development and maturit...

Under the rice-wheat cropping system (RWS), the continuous cropping of rice (Oryza sativa L.) and wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) deplete soil fertility, and reduce crop growth and total rice biomass. In RWS, both phosphorus (P) and zinc (Zn) deficiencies are considered important nutritional constraints for reducing rice crop growth rates (CGR) and to...

In the rice-wheat (R-W) system, inorganic nitrogen (N) fertilizer (urea, etc.) is the largest component of the N cycle, because the supply of N from organic fertilizers is insufficient. But the 4% Initiative aims to improve organic matter and stimulate carbon sequestration in soils using best agronomic practices (sustainable management practices) w...
