JCR | Impact assessment of genetically modified herbicide-tolerant cotton on arthropod communities
By Fan Qin on May 20, 2022

Crop Protection Biomol - Biotechnology JCR

[Background] Cotton (Gossypium spp.) is one of the most important economic crops worldwide, and its production plays an important role in the economy of many countries. Genetically modified herbicide-tolerant (GMHT) crops, which were developed to minimize the losses caused by weeds, have gradually become the most widely adopted genetically modified...

JCR | Thellungiella halophila ST103 enhances salt tolerance in Gossypium hirsutum
By Fan Qin on May 20, 2022

Breeding & Genetic improvement Agronomy & physiology JCR

[Background] Cotton (Gossypium hirsutum), the major textile fiber crop of the world, is negatively affected by salinity. It leads to the induction of adverse effects on growth and development of cotton. The overall yield of cotton faces major drawback once they are grown in saline soil. To improve cotton salt tolerance, transgenic approach offers a...

JCR | Management of cotton bollworms Helicoverpa armigera and Earias vittella by entomopathogenic nematodes
By Fan Qin on May 17, 2022

Pest control JCR

[Background] The bollworm complex consisting of Helicoverpa armigera and Earias vittella is a major threat in cotton production globally. The habit of developing resistance to many insecticides including Bt transgenic cotton necessitates the exploration of an alternate strategy to manage bollworms. The entomopathogenic nematodes (EPN) Steinernema c...

JCR | Fourier transform infrared spectral features of plant biomass components during cotton organ development and their biological implications
By Fan Qin on May 17, 2022

Agronomy & physiology JCR

[Background] The majority of attenuated total reflection Fourier transform infrared (ATR FT-IR) investigations of cotton are focused on the fiber tissue for biological mechanisms and understanding of fiber development and maturity, but rarely on other cotton biomass components. This work examined in detail the ATR FT-IR spectral features of various...

JCR | Characters and structures of the nucleobase–ascorbate transporters (NAT) family genes in Gossypium hirsutum and their roles in responding to salt and drought stresses
By Fan Qin on May 17, 2022

Breeding & Genetic improvement Biomol - Biotechnology JCR

[Background] Nucleobase–ascorbate transporters (NAT), synonymously called nucleobase–cation symporter 2 (NCS2) proteins, were earlier reported to be involved in plant growth, development and resistance to stress. Previous studies concluded that s a polymorphic SNP associated with NAT12 was significant different between salt-tolerant and salt-sensit...

JCR | Effect of nitrogen application level on cotton fibre quality
By Fan Qin on Mar 10, 2022

Agronomy & physiology JCR

[Abstract] The nitrogen (N) requirements of cotton are well understood and have been extensively studied since 1887, with practical guides, decision support systems, models and recent reviews providing information on the importance of providing cotton crops with a sufficient supply of nutrients and improving nitrogen use efficiency. Given that the...

JCR | Thellungiella halophila ST5 improves salt tolerance in cotton
By Fan Qin on Mar 8, 2022

Agronomy & physiology Biomol - Biotechnology JCR

[Background] Salinity is a major abiotic stress to global agriculture which hampers crop growth and development, and eventually reduces yield. Transgenic technology is an effective and efficient approach to improve crop salt tolerance but depending on the availability of effective genes. We previously isolated Salt Tolerance5 (ThST5) from the halop...

JCR | A review of phosphorus nutrition in irrigated cotton farming systems of Australia
By Fan Qin on Mar 4, 2022

Agronomy & physiology JCR

[Abstract] Australian cotton production predominantly occurs on Vertisols. The average lint yield of cotton grown in Australia is 2 260–2 700 kg·hm−2, which is 2.5 to 3 times the world average. This high productivity per unit of land area requires efficient use of resources such as water and nutrients. However, high yields accelerate the export of...

JCR | Advances and prospects of genetic mapping of Verticillium wilt resistance in cotton
By Fan Qin on Mar 4, 2022

Breeding & Genetic improvement Disease control Crop Protection JCR

[Abstract] Verticillium wilt is one of the most important diseases affecting cotton production in China. The fungus, Verticillium dahliae, has a wide host range and a high degree of genetic variability. No resistance resources have been found in the available planting resources, thus presenting difficulties and challenges for our study. The long-te...

JCR | A review of the pathogenicity mechanism of Verticillium dahliae in cotton
By Fan Qin on Mar 3, 2022

Disease control Crop Protection JCR

[Abstract] Verticillium wilt, caused by the notorious fungal pathogen Verticillium dahliae, is one of the main limiting factors for cotton production. Due to the stable dormant structure microsclerotia, long-term variability and co-evolution with host plant, its pathogenicity mechanism is very complicated, and the interaction mechanism between path...

JCR | Arabidopsis NLP7 improves nitrogen use efficiency and yield in cotton

Agronomy & physiology Biomol - Biotechnology JCR

[Background] Nitrogen (N) is a required macronutrient for cotton growth and productivity. Excessive N fertilizers are applied in agriculture for crop yield maximization, which also generates environmental pollution. Improving crop N use efficiency (NUE) is the most economical and desirable way of reducing fertilizer application and environmental po...

Breeding & Genetic improvement Breeding JCR

[Background] Gossypium hirsutum (upland cotton) is one of the principal fiber crops in the world. Cotton yield is highly affected by abiotic stresses, among which salt stress is considered as a major problem around the globe. Transgenic approach is efficient to improve cotton salt tolerance but depending on the availability of salt tolerance genes....

JCR | The effects of straw-returning and inorganic K fertilizer on the carbon–nitrogen balance and reproductive growth of cotton
By Fan Qin on Dec 8, 2021

Agronomy & physiology JCR

[Background] Many studies have indicated that straw-returning could meet part or even all of the potassium (K) demand for crop growth in the field, but few have compared the effects of crop straw as K source and inorganic K fertilizer on carbon–nitrogen (C–N) balance of cotton and the reproductive growth. To address this, field experiments were con...

JCR | Effect of vapour pressure deficit on gas exchange of field-grown cotton
By Fan Qin on Dec 8, 2021

Agronomy & physiology JCR

[Background] Plants respond to changes in vapour pressure deficit (VPD) between the leaf and the atmosphere through changes in stomatal response, which can consequently affect transpiration, photosynthesis, and leaf-level water use efficiencies. With projected warmer air temperatures, changes in rainfall distribution and altered VPD in future clima...
