  • A small plant with great success - case study

    The farm-based biogas plant operated by the Wienken family in Augustenfeld (near Löningen) is the first plant of its size built by bwe. Originally, the farm's operator had planned to install a straw heating element. However, since the input materials are available on the farm itself in their entirety, the decision to implement a biogas plant designed by bwe was obvious. One decisive aspect ...

  • Anaerobic co-digestion of cattle manure with rice straw: economic & energy feasibility

    Rice straw (RS) is one of the most abundant wastes generated in Valencia (Spain). Traditional waste disposal methods are harmful to the environment. The straw burning emits large amounts of toxic air pollutants and the straw burying produces uncontrolled anaerobic fermentation in the soil. The aim of this research was to evaluate the feasibility of cow manure anaerobic co-digestion with RS in a ...

  • Fluidised bed combustion and gasification of rice husk and rice straw – a state of art review

    Rice is cultivated in all the main regions of world. The worldwide annual rice production is 666 million tons for the year 2008. The combustion and gasification of rice husk/rice straw in fluidised bed reactors seems to be an attractive possibility of future for power generation, the solution of waste disposal problems and the reduction of greenhouse gases. In this paper, overview of fluidised ...

  • Effects of the chromosome region including the Gpc-B1 locus on wheat grain and protein yield

    The recent cloning of the Gpc-B1 gene from Triticum turgidum ssp. dicoccoides (Körn. ex Asch. and Graebn.) Thell. (DIC hereafter) chromosome 6BS revealed that modern wheat varieties have a nonfunctional allele. The DIC allele accelerates senescence and increases grain protein concentration (GPC) relative to the nonfunctional allele, but its effect on yield is not known. Here we describe the ...

  • Rice straw composting and its effect on soil properties

    In Egypt, recycling rice straw and organic wastes is of great concern as well as improvement of soil properties. Rice straw compost could improve both organic waste recycling and soil quality. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of the rice straw compost, with or without water treatment residuals (WTR), on soil chemical properties and dry weight of canola. The results showed that the ...

  • Transfer of leaf rust and stripe rust resistance genes Lr62 and Yr42 from Aegilops neglecta Req. Ex Bertol. to common wheat

    Continued genetic control of the cereal rusts depends on the availability of effective resistance genes. The wild relatives of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) constitute a source of such genes. Wheat leaf rust (Puccinia triticina Eriks.) resistant Aegilops neglecta accession 155 was crossed with ‘Chinese Spring’. Resistant progeny were initially backcrossed to Chinese Spring and later to Chinese ...

  • Quantifying straw removal through baling and measuring the long-term impact on soil quality and wheat production

    Crop residues are considered the feedstock of choice for the production of ethanol, but removing crop residues may negatively impact soil productivity. The objectives were to quantify the proportion of total aboveground crop residues removed through baling and to evaluate the effects of 50 yr of straw removal with baling on soil quality and wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) production. The first study ...

  • Chemical composition of residue from cereal crops and cultivars in dryland ecosystems

    Cropping systems in the dryland farming region of eastern Washington State are dominated by winter and spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) and spring barley (Hordeum vulgare L.). Excessive levels of residue may be an obstacle in the adoption of conservation farming systems. Decomposition of cereal crop residues is associated with fiber and nutrient content, and growers have observed differences ...

  • Compost curing reduces suppression of plant diseases

    Prolonged curing of compost reduces risks of phytotoxicity but may also have an undesirable effect on suppressiveness against soil-borne diseases. In a previous study, this effect was demonstrated for a compost produced from a mixture of yard waste and biosolids, against Sclerotium rolfsii. The aim of the present study was to demonstrate that similar effects of prolonged curing may be exhibited ...

  • Cattle gain and crop yield for a dryland wheat-sorghum-fallow rotation

    Increasing pumping costs and declining well capacities in the U.S. Southern High Plains have led to greater reliance on less productive and inherently riskier dryland cropping systems. Dryland wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) and grain sorghum [Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench] are typically grown in a 3-yr wheat-sorghum-fallow (WSF) rotation that may be intensified by integrating cattle (Bos taurus) ...
