    • Water consumption and preliminary crop coefficients of two Populus ×canadensis clones (‘I-214’ and ‘I-488’) grown at low planting density 

      Cañete Salinas, Paulo; Zamudio, Francisco; Yáñez, Marcos; Valdés Gómez, Héctor; Espinosa, Cristian; Venegas, Jaime; Retamal, Luis; Gyenge, Javier; Acevedo Opazo, César (Instituto Nacional de Investigación y Tecnología Agraria y Alimentaria (INIA España), 2021-04)
      Aim of study: The productivity of poplar plantations in Mediterranean climates might be reduced due to lower precipitations in a climate change scenario. Therefore, understanding the water consumption in these plantations ...
    • Water productivity in soybean following a cover crop in a humid environment 

      Alfonso, Carla Susana; Barbieri, Pablo; Hernandez, Mariano Daniel; Lewczuk, Nuria; Martinez, Juan Pablo; Echarte, María Mercedes; Echarte, Laura (Elsevier, 2020-02-05)
      We evaluated the influence of the termination dates of a winter cover crop on (i) soil water availability during soybean (Glycine max L. (Merr)) growing season, (ii) soybean evapotranspiration (ET) and iii) water productivity ...
    • Water regulation by grasslands: a global meta‐analysis 

      Sirimarco, Marina Ximena; Barral, Maria Paula; Villarino, Sebastian; Laterra, Pedro (Wiley Online Library, 2018-06-03)
      Grasslands have been modified and replaced worldwide and have affected water regulation ecosystem services. In order to support public policies attending to the consequences of different grassland modifications and ...
    • What is meat in Argentina? 

      Pavan, Enrique; Grigioni, Gabriela Maria; Aguirre, Patricia; Leal, Marcela (2017-10)
      Due to its strong cultural significance, the term “meat” in Argentina has been historically associated with beef, despite its wider definition in the Argentine Food Code. Only by the end of the last century did other meats ...
    • Wheat spike fertility : inheritance and relationship with spike yield components in early generations 

      Martino, Diana Laura; Abbate, Pablo Eduardo; Cendoya, Maria Gabriela; Gutheim, Florencia; Mirabella, Nadia Estefania; Pontaroli, Ana Clara (2015)
      In wheat, grain number is considered as the product of spike dry weight (SDW) and the number of grains per unit of SDW, that is an indicator of spike fertility (SF). The aim of this study was to determine the heritability ...
    • Widespread and major losses in multiple ecosystem services as a result of agricultural expansion in the Argentine Chaco 

      Barral, Maria Paula; Villarino, Sebastian; Levers, Christian; Baumann, Mathias; Kuemmerle, Tobias; Mastrangelo, Matías Enrique (Wiley, 2020-09-09)
      1.Where agriculture expands into tropical and subtropical forests, social–ecological impacts are typically strong. However, where and how frontier development impacts on ecosystem functioning and services is often unclear, ...
    • Wild potato genetic reserves in protected areas: prospection notes from Los Cardones National Park, Salta, Argentina 

      Kozub, Perla Carolina; Ibañez, Verónica Noé; Digilio, Ariana; Atencio, Hugo Marcelo; Garavano, María Eugenia; Sánchez, María Elena; Marfil, Carlos Federico (Facultad de Ciencias Agrarias, Universidad Nacional de Cuyo, 2019-12-09)
      Wild potato species (WPS) are vital genetic resources to improve the productivity and sustainability of the third most important food crop worldwide. Although in situ conservation of this germplasm has been considered the ...
    • Winter population size estimations of three migratory sheldgeese in the southern pampas, Argentina 

      Pedrana, Julieta; Bernad, Lucí­a; Bernardos, Jaime Nicolás; Seco Pon, Juan Pablo; Isacch, Juan Pablo; Muñoz, Sebastián Darí­o; Maceira, Nestor Oscar (2018-03)
