Accounts of Operational Agrometeorology

Last modified September 26, 2008 08:25

Here we publish short accounts on successful operational applications and services in agrometeorology (public (e.g. NMHSs) and private), as well as on action support systems (data, research, policies, extension), that are suitable for further dissemination, or on publications that are holding such accounts. [Discuss items for this section with the President or the Vice-president.]

Does drought turn the Amazon brown or green? — Last modified November 08, 2014 16:52
There’s no doubt that the Amazon rainforest stores a massive amount of carbon – 120 billion tons or so, at current estimates. Whether drought slows or boosts tree growth in the region has been more contentious, however, with field studies and satellite data giving conflicting results. Now, a team from the US and Brazil has used a new correction for remote-sensing data that’s helped to bring satellite results in line with observations from the ground. In the process, the researchers showed that reduced rainfall since 2000 has made large parts of the Amazon less green.
Plant communities produce greater yield than monocultures — Last modified November 03, 2014 16:45
Diverse plant communities are more successful and enable higher crop yields than pure monocultures, a European research team headed by ecologists from the University of Zurich has discovered. The scientists are convinced that the cultivation of crop mixtures in agriculture and forestry will play a key role in food safety in the future.

Crop heat stress in the context of Earth System modelling — Last modified October 10, 2014 16:16
Samuel Levis examines recent work on how best to evaluate crop heat stress during flowering.
Artificial 'beaks' that collect water from fog: A drought solution? — Last modified October 02, 2014 10:49
From the most parched areas of Saudi Arabia to water-scarce areas of the western U.S., the idea of harvesting fog for water is catching on. Now, a novel approach to this process could help meet affected communities' needs for the life-essential resource. Scientists describe their new, highly efficient fog collector, inspired by a shorebird's beak, in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces.

Rising temperatures hinder Indian wheat production — Last modified July 31, 2014 14:02
Geographers at the University of Southampton have found a link between increasing average temperatures in India and a reduction in wheat production.
Straw albedo mitigates extreme heat — Last modified July 22, 2014 13:36
Wheat fields are often tilled immediately after the crop is harvested, removing the light-coloured stubble and crop residues from the soil surface and bringing dark bare earth to the top. Post-harvest tilling is a widely practised and common management technique in Europe.
