Pearl millet growth and biochemical alterations determined by mycorrhizal inoculation, water availability and atmospheric CO2 concentration 
Eliseu G. Fabbrin, Yolanda Gogorcena, Átila F. Mogor, Idoia Garmendia and Nieves Goicoechea

Pearl millet is an important fodder for cattle feed and can be used for fuel ethanol production in dry areas. Irrigation level and atmospheric CO2 concentration influence the development of pearl millet, which also establishes symbiotic associations with mycorrhizal fungi. These factors all affected the accumulation of proteins and sugars in leaves, thus affecting the quality of pearl millet for different practical uses.

A functional leaf may represent the assimilate accumulation characteristics of the whole seedling plant in winter oilseed rape (Brassica napus L.) 
Xinghua Li, Tewu Yang, Zhongnan Nie, Guoxing Chen, Liyong Hu and Rui Wang

A single leaf that can be used to evaluate seedling growth and assimilate accumulation of oilseed rape is of great significance to conduct research into the crop. The morphological and physiological characteristics of various functional leaves were compared with the characteristics of whole plant at seedling stage. The results revealed that the fifth leaf is most suitable to represent the whole seedling plant for evaluation of winter oilseed rape.

Comparison of photoperiod-sensitive and photoperiod-insensitive basmati cultivars for grain yield, water productivity, and quality traits under varied transplanting dates in Northwest India 
G. Mahajan, N. Sharma, R. Kaur and B. S. Chauhan

Water productivity and quality characteristics of photo-period sensitive basmati cultivars can be increased by planting them late in the period of low evaporative demand in north-west India. For photo-period insensitive basmati cultivars, short duration cultivars helped in increasing water productivity and quality characteristics.

Can wheat varietal mixtures buffer the impacts of water deficit? 
Paul Adu-Gyamfi, Tariq Mahmood and Richard Trethowan

Varietal mixtures based on complementary above and below ground physiological and disease resistance traits can stabilise yield and improve water-use efficiency. Significant mixture effects on grain yield, abiotic stress tolerance, weed- infestation, lodging, disease expression and processing quality have been observed in cereal grains and legumes.

Phylogenetic effects on shoot magnesium concentration 
Philip J. White, Helen C. Bowen, Emily Farley, Emma K. Shaw, Jacqueline A. Thompson, Gladys Wright and Martin R. Broadley

Knowledge of the concentrations of magnesium (Mg) in crops and pastures can help in formulation of appropriate human and animal diets. Ancient evolutionary processes have resulted in large differences in shoot Mg concentrations between plant species. This paper reports that the peculiarly high shoot Mg concentrations found in species of the Caryophyllales order, such as the amaranths, buckwheats and beets, evolved in an ancient ancestor of all the Caryophyllales families.

Saline water irrigation of quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa) under Mediterranean conditions 
Attila Yazar, Çigdem Incekaya, S. Metin Sezen and Sven-Erik Jacobsen

Irrigation and evapotranspiration, grain yield, aboveground biomass yield and harvest index were evaluated under fresh and saline water regimes. Different parameters, such as water productivity and irrigation water productivity, yield components, leaf area index and plant height, were studied to assess quinoa’s growth and yield. Grain yields were slightly reduced by irrigation water salinity compared with fresh water irrigation. Results showed that quinoa can be irrigated with saline water with EC level up to 30 dS m–1 with acceptable yields in the semi-arid and arid regions of the Mediterranean Basin.

Yield gain due to fungicide application in varieties of winter wheat (Triticum aestivum) resistant and susceptible to leaf rust 
blank image
Alex Morgounov, Beyhan Akin, Lütfi Demir, Mesut Keser, Alma Kokhmetova, Sergey Martynov, Şinasi Orhan, Fatih Özdemir, İzzet Özseven, Zagipa Sapakhova and Minura Yessimbekova
pp. 649-659

Winter wheat germplasm with variable degrees of resistance to leaf rust was subjected to fungicide protection. The yield loss of genotypes susceptible to leaf rust varied from 30% to 60% depending on the environment and severity of infection. Genotypes completely or moderately resistant to leaf rust also responded positively to fungicide protection, with 10–30% yield increases. The magnitude of yield gain by resistant germplasm justifies its capture in breeding programs to develop varieties resistant to diseases and with greater benefits from the fungicide protection.

QTL mapping for plant height and yield components in common wheat under water-limited and full irrigation environments 
blank image
Xingmao Li, Xianchun Xia, Yonggui Xiao, Zhonghu He, Desen Wang, Richard Trethowan, Huajun Wang and Xinmin Chen
pp. 660-670

QTLs for plant height and yield components were analysed by inclusive composite interval mapping. Three QTLs for plant height and seven to ten QTLs for 1000-kernel weight, number of kernels per spike, number of spikes per m2, and grain yield were detected. A new plant height gene was discovered on 6A, and the relationships of QTLs among plant height and yield components were showed in this study.

In-season expression of nitrate and ammonium transporter genes in roots of winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) genotypes with different nitrogen-uptake efficiencies 
blank image
Jinshan Liu, Jie Fu, Hui Tian and Yajun Gao
pp. 671-678

In-season expression of four nitrate and two ammonium transporter genes in roots of N-efficient and N-inefficient wheat genotypes was studied. The expression of all the genes showed significant temporal dynamics, and generally matched the pattern of in-season N uptake of wheat plants. Several genes showed greater expression in the N-efficient genotype than in the N-inefficient wheat genotype.

B. Lal, Priyanka Gautam, S. Mohanty, R. Raja, R. Tripathi, M. Shahid, B. B. Panda, M. J. Baig, Liza Rath, P. Bhattacharyya and A. K. Nayak
pp. 679-688

The advances in physiology, genetics, and molecular biology have greatly improved our understanding of plant responses to stresses, but nutrient management options is still lacking. This study is conducted to investigate the combined effect of silica (Si), phosphorus (P) and nitrogen (N) with Sub1 and non-Sub1 cultivars under clear and turbid water submergence. Application of Si reduced elongation, lodging and leaf senescence, with more prominent effects when applied with basal P. Combined effect of N, P and Si resulted in higher photosynthesis, stomatal conductance, higher leaf area and weight ultimately contributing to greater plant survival both under clear and turbid water.

I. Rochester, C. Wood and B. Macdonald
pp. 689-695

N2O emissions from cotton foliage accounted for 13–17% of the soil–crop N2O flux. N2O emissions from maize foliage were similar to cotton but were lower from soybean foliage. N2O flux from cotton foliage was not affected by N fertiliser rate, but declined as the soil dried between irrigations.

Role of arbuscular mycorrhizal symbiosis in phosphorus-uptake efficiency and aluminium tolerance in barley growing in acid soils 
blank image
Alex Seguel, José Miguel Barea, Pablo Cornejo and Fernando Borie
pp. 696-705

This study examined the effect of soil Al levels and mycorrhizal symbiosis on plant response, including root colonisation, arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi propagules and glomalin production. The relative growth rate of roots, P uptake efficiency and mycorrhizal parameters such as root colonisation, spores, hyphae and GRSP showed ‘Aurora’ barley cultivar to be more Al-tolerant than ‘Sebastián’. Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi play an important role in the Al-tolerance capacity and P-uptake efficiency of H. vulgare growing in soils with high Al levels.

Optimised nitrogen fertiliser management achieved higher diversity of arbuscular mycorrhiza fungi and high-yielding maize (Zea mays L.) 
blank image
Xiaojing Wang, Xinxin Wang and Gu Feng
pp. 706-714

AM fungi help crop to acquire more nutrients, such as phosphorus and nitrogen, but over application of chemical fertilizers reduce biodiversity and the function of the fungi. We found an optimal nitrogen fertilizer management can maintain higher AM fungal biodiversity without losing of the yield of maize comparing to conventional management. Such funding suggests the integrate soil-crop system management approach can balance the environmental cost and nitrogen input in high-yielding agro-ecosystem by maintaining AM fungal community.

Water use, transpiration efficiency and yield in cowpea (Vigna unguiculata) and peanut (Arachis hypogaea) across water regimes 
blank image
Oumarou Halilou, Falalou Hamidou, Boulama Katzelma Taya, Saadou Mahamane and Vincent Vadez
pp. 715-728

Water use, harvest index, transpiration efficiency and yield were assessed in 20 genotypes of cowpea and peanut in a lysimetric system across season varying for in vapor pressure deficit (VPD) and fully irrigated or terminal drought conditions. TE, HI, and water use were more stable across season in cowpea than in peanut, in which the indices decreased dramatically under high VPD. We hypothesize that cowpea has means to control water losses much tighter than peanut, giving it an edge in dryer environment.

Influence of plant growth stage on resistance to anthracnose in Andean lupin (Lupinus mutabilis) 
blank image
Cesar E. Falconi, Richard G. F. Visser and Sjaak van Heusden
pp. 729-734

Anthracnose of lupin was not equally expressed at all developmental stages. Anthracnose was greater at early seedling stage, decreasing significantly in early vegetative phase and increasing again when the flower stage began. We recommend screen first at the 6–7-leaf stage and again when flowering starts so that the overall reaction can be determined. Evaluation of disease resistance at only one stage could result in the loss of progeny that, at other stages, could possess favourable resistant genes.

Antifungal activity of plant extracts against Embellisia astragali, the fungal causal agent of yellow dwarf and root-rot disease of standing milkvetch 
blank image
Cuiyun Zeng, Xiaoyu Zhu, Zhen Cui and Yanzhong Li
pp. 735-739

The study is the first report that demonstrates the inhibitory effect of medicinal plant extracts on Embellisia astragali. Medicinal plant-derived products have a high potential to control yellow dwarf and root-rot disease in standing milkvetch. Medicinal plant extracts are promising as alternative or complementary control means because of their antifungal activity, low phytotoxicity, selectivity, and biodegradability.

Guisheng Zhou, Yonghui Wang, Fuyan Zhai, Shiyuan Lu, A. E. Nimir, Linlin Yu, Hui Pan and Dongmei Lv
pp. 740-746

Low temperature and flooding decreased photosynthetic rate, stomatal conductance, transpiration rate, and intercellular CO2 concentration by 37%, 71%, 52%, and 60%, respectively. The contents of soluble protein, insecticidal protein, boll number and boll weight were also decreased by 65%, 53%, 3.2%, and 28.1% respectively. Malondialehyde (MDA) content was increased by up to 114% due to low temperature and flooding stresses.

Raffaella Petruccelli, Alessandra Bonetti, Maria Laura Traversi, Cecilia Faraloni, Massimo Valagussa and Alessandro Pozzi
pp. 747-755

The impact of biochar on quality and nutritional parameters of tomato was studied. No negative effects of biochar on tomato fruit or on tomato quality could be seen. Future studies should address to understand the mechanisms of action of biochar on deposition of secondary metabolites.
