  • Ghimire, Kabita; Dulin, Mike W.; Atchison, Robert L.; Goodin, Douglas G.; Hutchinson, J. M. Shawn (3/18/2015)
    Windbreaks are valuable resources in conserving soils and providing crop protection in Great Plains states in the US. Currently, Kansas has no up-to date inventory of windbreaks. The goal of this project was to assist ...
  • Liu, Liman; Klocke, Norman L.; Yan, Shuping; Rogers, Danny H.; Schlegel, Alan J.; Lamm, Freddie R.; Chang, Shing I.; Wang, Donghai (2/26/2014)
    The objective of this research was to study the effect of irrigation levels (five levels from 102 to 457 mm of water) on the physical and chemical properties and ethanol fermentation performance of maize. Twenty maize ...
  • Aiken, Robert M.; Klocke, N. L. (9/4/2012)
    In situ measurements of crop transpiration can enhance field studies of crop water use and productivity. Our objectives were to develop and evaluate a canopy resistance model, to evaluate operational characteristics of sap ...
  • Kokkinidou, S.; LaBorde, L. F.; Floros, John D. (5/30/2014)
    Degradation of the mycotoxin patulin between 25 and 85 °C without and with added ascorbic acid was studied, and the effectiveness of linear and nonlinear models for predicting reaction rates was compared. In agreement with ...
  • Ricketts, Mitchell S. (Information Science Reference, 9/3/2013)
    Research suggests people often fail to understand the personal relevance of generalized health information. To make health information more meaningful, communicators can employ anecdotes that take the form of instructive ...
  • Kisekka, Isaya; Migliaccio, K. W.; Muñoz-Carpena, R.; Schaffer, B.; Khare, Y. (3/6/2015)
    In shallow water table controlled environments, surface water management impacts groundwater table levels and soil water dynamics. The study goal was to simulate soil water dynamics in response to canal stage raises ...
  • Blanco-Canqui, Humberto; Holman, John D.; Schlegel, Alan J.; Tatarko, John; Shaver, Tim M. (11/19/2013)
    Replacement of fallow in crop–fallow systems with cover crops (CCs) may improve soil properties. We assessed whether replacing fallow in no-till winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)–fallow with winter and spring CCs for 5 ...
  • Kranz, W. L.; Evans, R. G.; Lamm, Freddie R.; O’Shaughnessy, S. A.; Peters, R. T. (8/31/2012)
    Electronic sensors, equipment controls, and communication protocols have been developed to meet the growing interest in using center pivot and lateral move irrigation systems to deliver different irrigation depths to ...
  • Narayanan, Sruthi; Aiken, Robert M.; Prasad, P. V. Vara; Xin, Zhanguo; Paul, George; Yu, Jianming (4/7/2014)
    Leaf area index (LAI) is a widely used physiological parameter to quantify the vegetative canopy structure of crops. Over the years, several models to estimate LAI have been developed with various degrees of complexity and ...
  • Kisekka, Isaya; Migliaccio, K. W.; Muñoz-Carpena, R.; Schaffer, B.; Boyer, T. H.; Li, Y. (3/6/2015)
    As part of an effort to restore the hydrology of Everglades National Park (ENP), incremental raises in canal stage are proposed along a major canal draining south Florida called C-111, which separates ENP from agricultural ...
  • Klocke, N. L.; Currie, R. S.; Tomsicek, D. J.; Koehn, J. W. (9/24/2012)
    Because dwindling water supplies are limiting crop production, a field study was conducted during 2005-2009 in southwest Kansas to determine the yield response of grain sorghum to irrigation and evapotranspiration ...
  • Lamm, Freddie R.; Bordovsky, J. P.; Schwankl, L. J.; Grabow, G. L.; Enciso-Medina, J.; Peters, R. T.; Colaizzi, P. D.; Trooien, T. P.; Porter, D. O. (7/30/2012)
    Subsurface drip irrigation (SDI), although a much smaller fraction of the microirrigated land area than surface drip irrigation, is growing at a much faster rate and is the subject of considerable research and educational ...
  • Reddy, Seshadri S.; Stahlman, Phillip W.; Geier, Patrick W.; Charvat, Leo D.; Wilson, Robert G.; Moechnig, Michael J. (4/25/2014)
    Herbicide options for weed control in millets are very limited and hence there is a need for exploring potential herbicides. Field trials were conducted at three locations in Kansas and Nebraska in 2009 to evaluate foxtail ...
  • Reddy, Srirama Krishna; Weng, Yiqun; Rudd, Jackie C.; Akhunova, Alina R.; Liu, Shuyu (5/8/2014)
    The greenbug aphid, Schizaphis graminum (Rondani) is an important cereal pest, periodically threatening wheat yields in the United States and around the world. The single dominant gene, Gb3-based resistance is highly durable ...
  • Fox, Shannon; Ricketts, Mitchell S.; Minton, J. Ernest (2/11/2015)
    Cattle have been identified as leading sources of injuries to agricultural workers. The present study focused on worker injuries that involved the interaction of cattle, cattle handlers, and farm structures or equipment. ...
