  • Liu, Shubing; Yang, Xiping; Zhang, Dadong; Bai, Guihua; Chao, Shiaoman; Bockus, William W. (2014-07-08)
    Soil-borne wheat mosaic virus (SBWMV) disease is a serious viral disease of winter wheat growing areas worldwide. SBWMV infection can significantly reduce grain yield up to 80%. Developing resistant wheat cultivars is the ...
  • Boyles, R. E.; Cooper, E. A.; Myers, M. T.; Brenton, Z.; Rauh, B. L.; Morris, Geoffrey P.; Kresovich, S.
    Grain yield and its primary determinants, grain number and weight, are important traits in cereal crops that have been well studied; however, the genetic basis of and interactions between these traits remain poorly understood. ...
  • Tamborindeguy, Cecilia; Bereman, Michael S.; DeBlasio, Stacy; Igwe, David; Smith, Dawn M.; White, Frank F.; MacCoss, Michael J.; Gray, Stewart M.; Cilia, Michelle (2013-09-16)
    Yellow dwarf viruses cause the most economically important virus diseases of cereal crops worldwide and are transmitted by aphid vectors. The identification of aphid genes and proteins mediating virus transmission is ...
  • Gulia-Nuss, M.; Nuss, A. B.; Meyer, J. M.; Sonenshine, D. E.; Roe, R. M.; Waterhouse, R. M.; Sattelle, D. B.; de la Fuente, J.; Ribeiro, J. M.; Megy, K.; Thimmapuram, J.; Miller, J. R.; Walenz, B. P.; Park, Yoonseong
    Ticks transmit more pathogens to humans and animals than any other arthropod. We describe the 2.1 Gbp nuclear genome of the tick, Ixodes scapularis (Say), which vectors pathogens that cause Lyme disease, human granulocytic ...
  • Battenfield, S. D.; Guzman, C.; Gaynor, R. C.; Singh, R. P.; Pena, R. J.; Dreisigacker, S.; Fritz, A. K.; Poland, Jesse A.
    Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cultivars must possess suitable end-use quality for release and consumer acceptability. However, breeding for quality traits is often considered a secondary target relative to yield largely ...
  • Poland, Jesse A.; Endelman, Jeffrey; Dawson, Julie; Rutkoski, Jessica; Wu, Shuangye; Manes, Yann; Dreisigacker, Susanne; Crossa, José; Sánchez-Villeda, Héctor; Sorrells, Mark; Jannink, Jean-Luc (2013-03-11)
    Genomic selection (GS) uses genomewide molecular markers to predict breeding values and make selections of individuals or breeding lines prior to phenotyping. Here we show that genotyping-by-sequencing (GBS) can be used ...
  • Morris, Geoffrey P.; Hu, Z.; Grabowski, P. P.; Borevitz, J. O.; de Graaff, M. A.; Miller, R. M.; Jastrow, J. D.
    The perennial grass species that are being developed as biomass feedstock crops harbor extensive genotypic diversity, but the effects of this diversity on biomass production are not well understood. We investigated the ...
  • Kapanigowda, Mohankumar H.; Perumal, Ramasamy; Djanaguiraman, Maduraimuthu; Aiken, Robert M.; Tesso, Tesfaye T.; Prasad, P. V. Vara; Little, Christopher R. (2014-10-01)
    Sorghum [Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench] grain yield is severely affected by abiotic and biotic stresses during post-flowering stages, which has been aggravated by climate change. New parental lines having genes for various ...
  • Kreikemeier, K.K.; Harmon, D.L.; Avery, T.B.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-11-22)
    Glucose infused into the abomasum of Holstein steers resulted in higher arterial glucose concentrations and increased net glucose absorption than either starch or dextrin infusions. Increasing infusion rates above 20 ...
  • Kreikmeier, K.K.; Harmon, D.L.; Avery, T.B.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-09-20)
    Holstein steers (775 lbs) were surgically fitted with abomasal and ileal cannulae, portal and mesenteric venous catheters, and an elevated carotid artery. These steers were used to study starch digestion in the small ...
  • Eborn, D.R.; Grieger, David M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-01-21)
    The use of artificial insemination can improve genetics, shorten the calving season, and increase weaning weights by having more calves born earlier in the breeding season. Reasons that this technology has not been used ...
  • Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Schmidt, M.K.; Call, Edward P. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-10-04)
    To study the effects of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) and timing of artificial insemination (Al) on fertility, 328 dairy cows were divided into four groups. Inseminations at first, second, or third service were ...
  • Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Call, Edward P. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-09-20)
    An experiment examining the benefit of treating repeat-breeders with 100 µg GnRH (Cystorelin ®) at the time of third or fourth insemination was conducted in 513 dairy cows of which 93 (abnormal cows) had been diagnosed ...
  • Axe, D.; Ilg, H.; Bolsen, K.; Behnke, Keith C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-02-18)
    Two finishing trials with heifers and steers were conducted to determine the value of grain dust (GD) to replace cracked corn and to compare soybean meal and urea as protein supplements. Results of the 104-day heifer ...
  • Fox, J.T.; Jacob, M.E.; Reinstein, S.L.; Drouillard, James S.; Nagaraja, Tiruvoor G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-01-22)
    Escherichia coli O157 is an important food-borne pathogen for which the gastrointestinal tract of cattle is the major reservoir. Fecal shedding of E. coli O157 in cattle reflects the ability of the organism to persist in ...
  • Staggenborg, Scott A.; Dhuyvetter, Kevin C.; Gordon, W. B. (2008-12-19)
    Grain sorghum (Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench) is often grown where water stress is expected. But, improved drought tolerance in corn (Zea mays (L.)) hybrids has resulted in increased dryland corn production in preference to ...
  • Richardson, D.; Smith, E.F.; Koch, B.A.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-09-20)
    Two types of sorghum silage were used in this test. They were (1) DeKalb forage type which produced approximately 100 bushels of grain and 20 tons of silage per acre; and (2) RS610 grain type which produced approximately ...
  • Laudert, S.B.; Kuhl, Gerry L.; Edwards, A.J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-03)
    Two field trials were conducted to compare the pasture and finishing performance of heifers spayed by the Kimberling-Rupp(K-R) technique or by flank spaying plus autografting a piece of ovarian tissue into the rumen wall ...
