5735. Rasmussen, P.E. and C.R. Rohde. 1988. Stubble burning effects on winter wheat yield and N utilization under semiarid conditions.. Agronomy J. 80:940-942.
Burning vs. not burning was examined at 3 nitrogen levels over 6 years (3 crops). Burning had no effect on grain yield or grain N uptake. Burning increased straw yield when wheat was fertilized by N, but had no effect on straw N uptake. Burning did not decrease foot rot incidence or severity, but did reduce downy brome density. T: Effects of stubble burning and N fertilization on grain and straw of winter wheat 1980-85. Effect of stubble burning on foot rot infection. Effect of stubble burning on downybrome infestation.
10652. Chaney, D.. 1991. Marine by-products as fertilizers.. Components, UC Sustainable Agr. Program, Davis, CA (Winter 1991), p. 12-13.
Research and field experience indicate that marine by-products can improve soil structure, enhance soil microbial activity, and promote plant growth. Current processing and distribution costs presently limit their use. Fish waste, fish emulsion, shellfish waste, and seaweed are the major classes of materials. Research has established that seaweed supplies some plant nutrients (especially micronutrients), enhances plant growth, and improves soil tilth.
