Cryopreservation prolongs the storage time of cells and plays an important role in modern biology, agriculture, plant science and medicine. During cryopreservation, cells may suffer many damages, such as osmotic dehydration, large ice puncture and oxidative damages from reactive oxygen species (ROS). Classic cryoprotectants (CPAs) are failing to di...

A possible method to identify populations that may be more likely to generate inbred lines higher in yield than either parent is an early generation test for heterosis in F1 hybrids and or F2 bulks. To determine if measuring heterosis could be used to genetically improve soybean response to water, we compared the yield performance of the hybrid wit...

nytt från institutionen för norrländsk jordbruksvetenskap Syftet med detta projekt är att belysa möjligheterna att använda vårvete som helsäd i norra Sverige. Åren 2009 och 2010 odlades ett sortiment med vårvete på forskningsstationerna i Ås, Lännäs, Röbäcksdalen och Öjebyn. Det var två kortstråiga vetesorter, Bjarne och Quarna och tre långstråiga,...
Book
Plants are a fascinating group of plants that have been dominating the earth for 400 million years. During evolution, they have undergone series of evolutionary changes to suit themselves with the surrounding environment. These evolutionary changes not only included morphological changes to suit varied climatic conditions but also armed with i...
Article
Significant economic losses continue to impact agricultural production because of damages caused by biotic stressors such as insects and pathogens. Therefore, there is a need to propose innovative strategies to mitigate these attacks to maintain an adequate amount of food worldwide. In this study, there are two aspects of pest management investigat...
Article
Bread wheat, Triticum aestivum L., provides 20 percent of the global daily calorie intake. It is the third most important food crop, after rice and corn. Biotic challenges significantly reduce wheat yield; chemical control can be a solution but can be cost prohibitive for subsistence farmers. For many farmers, genetic resistance to biotic stresses...
Article
During times of stress, plants remodel their membranes to survive. SENSITIVE TO FREEZING 2 (SFR2) is a chloroplast-remodeling enzyme activated in response to cellular stress. SFR2 uses monogalactosyldiacylglycerol (MGDG) to create oligogalactolipids and triacylglycerol (TAG). In doing so, it removes lipids that are not ideal for membrane formation...
Article
Organic products that have historically been viewed as waste products may improve soil health by adding carbon (C) and nutrients to soil. Two such products are woodchips, generated from forest or rangeland management activities, and livestock manure. In Nebraska, eastern redcedar (Juniperus virginiana L.) is a native but invasive tree species inhib...
Book
The focus of this book is to introduce up-to-date information on applications and practical use of RNA for agriculture, biotechnology and medicine. It provides unique ideas, tools, and methods in detail from a variety of scientific and technical disciplines. RNA science has progressed enormously in recent decades, and vast amounts of information on...
Article
Prior to reproductive development, the rate of leaf appearance is relatively uniform for the main-stems of soybean genotypes evaluated under unstressed field experiments. A recent discovery of a soybean breeding line with faster leaf appearance demonstrates the existence of phenotypic variation for this trait, which is supported by recent functiona...
Article
Plant responses to a multitude of environmental changes have potential adaptive and agronomic benefits. The epigenetic component of this response is not well understood, but dynamic methylome changes may contribute towards modulating stress-responsive gene regulation and potentially give rise to transgenerational epigenetic information. Down-regula...
Article
Global demand for corn is projected to rise in the coming decades to meet the food and fuel requirements of an increasing human population. Technological innovations have significantly improved corn yields over the past few decades; however, corn production is continually limited by unfavorable weather conditions. Extreme weather events put pressur...
Conference Paper
In recent years, greenhouse automatic-control, based on the measurement of solar irradiance, has been attracting attention. This control is an effective method for improving crop production. In the agricultural field, it is necessary to measurePhoton Flux Density (PFD), which is an important parameter in the promotion of plant growth. In particular...
