Recalibrating the Pennsylvania PSNT with Dr. Charlie White

3/15/2024
“Recalibrating the Pennsylvania pre-sidedress soil nitrate test recommendations for modern corn production” with Charles White. Nitrogen management is one of the most important agronomic practices in modern crop production systems. The Pre-Sidedress Soil Nitrate Test, also known as the PSNT, gives farmers an estimation of plant available nitrogen in the soil, allowing them to calculate how much nitrogen the plants still need. The existing PSNT method was developed during the 1990’s. Now, farming practices are improved, altering the amount of nitrogen fertilizer plants need. Thus, it is important to re-calibrate the test so farmers can have a more accurate estimation of nitrogen requirements and reduce the cost of production. In this episode, Dr. Charlie White shares his insights on re-calibrating the pre-side dress soil nitrate test for modern corn production systems. Tune in to learn more about: · What the Pre-Sidedress Soil Nitrate Test does · The importance of Nitrogen mineralization · Which improved practices have impacted the test’s accuracy · Which factors most impact the test results now If you would like more information about this topic, this episode’s paper is available here: https://doi.org/10.1002/agj2.21426 This paper is always freely available.

Mitigating Coastal Eutrophication with Drs. Wafa Malik and Patrick Durand

1/19/2024
“Nitrogen mitigation scenarios to reduce coastal eutrophication” with Wafa and Patrick. Eutrophication is a state of overgrowth of aquatic plants, such as algae and seaweeds, in water bodies due to the excessive pouring of nutrients from different sources like agriculture, industry, and human settlements, causing disturbances to the ecosystems. Coastal eutrophication is a major issue worldwide due to the increasing discharge of nutrient emissions from agricultural activities into coastal ecosystems. Several efforts have been made to reduce eutrophication, achieving up to 35–40% reduction, but these measures are not sufficient to eliminate the problem. For more sustainable and effective solutions, the root causes of the nutrient emissions, especially nitrogen, need to be addressed in current agricultural practices. In this episode, Drs. Wafa Malik and Patrick Durand share their research on the reduction of coastal eutrophication in Brittany, France, focusing on changing cropping systems and reducing the sources through modeling the effectiveness of different approaches and taking into consideration the interests of farmers and the local community. Tune in to learn more about · How eutrophication happens · What are the causes and consequences of coastal eutrophication · What are the agricultural impacts of eutrophication · How we can change cropping systems to reduce eutrophication · What mitigation challenges exist in reducing coastal eutrophication If you would like more information about this topic, this episode’s paper is available here: https://doi.org/10.1002/agg2.20319 This paper is always freely available.

Latent Variable Phenotypes in Lentil with Sandesh Neupane and Derek Wright

12/15/2023
“Focusing the GWAS Lens on days to flower using latent variable phenotypes derived from global multienvironment trials” with Sandesh Neupane and Derek Wright. Lentil, a pivotal pulse crop, is recognized as an important part of food and nutrition security in the world. It has rich sources of important nutrients, is easy to cook, and thrives well on the farm. Due to its rich dietary benefits, lentil has been introduced to North America, especially in Canada. Originating as a warmer climate crop, domesticated in the Middle East and North Africa, and widely adopted in Southeast Asia, lentil can face adaptation issues in the cooler Canadian climate. This struggle directly impacts flowering, pod-bearing, and overall yield. What precisely are the adaptation constraints hindering lentil introduction in North America? How do varying photoperiods and temperatures exert influence on lentil production? Delving deeper, what genes govern the crop's sensitivity to photoperiods and temperatures? In this episode, Sandesh Neupane and Derek Wright share insights into their research on lentil adaptation and how they dissect the genetic mechanisms orchestrating the photoperiod and temperature sensitivity in lentils with multi-location trials and advanced image-based phenotyping. This groundbreaking work promises to contribute significantly to the breeding of well-suited lentil varieties tailored to thrive in North American conditions.

Global Reliance on Corn Belt Dent with Dr. Stephen Smith

5/19/2023
“Global Dependence Upon Corn Belt Dent Maize Germplasm: Challenges and Opportunities” with Dr. Stephen Smith, Affiliate Professor at Iowa State University Plant breeders are constantly trying to find the best crosses to increase the traits farmers and consumers want. However, continually crossing the same varieties can decrease the genetic gene pool over time, making plants susceptible to certain pests, diseases, and other stressors. To help understand the depth of the gene pool and to better understand how reliant we are on certain crop varieties, Dr. Stephen Smith and his team attempted to survey which maize varieties are bred and used the most. On this episode, we dive deep to discover what his team turned up.
