Currently, efficient and cost-efficient methods are needed to manage fields in order to maximize economic return, minimize environmental impact, and improve soil and crop site-specific management. Management zones (MZs) of uniform production potential may offer a solution to the problems associated with grid soil sampling while still effectively describing variability in soil properties. In this study, a hillside field of 4 ha was selected as the study site and 111 soil samples were taken from the topsoil (0-20 cm), on an ~20-m grid. Soil samples were analyzed for pH, organic matter, active soil organic matter, total nitrogen, alkalytic nitrogen, available phosphorous, available potassium and cation-exchange capacity. Their spatial variability was analyzed and spatial distribution maps were constructed using geostatistical techniques. Principal component analysis (PCA) and fuzzy c-means clustering algorithm were then performed to delineate MZs, and eigenvalues were used to select the principal components (PCs) for cluster analysis. Fuzzy performance index and normalized classification entropy were used to determine the optimum cluster number. The results revealed that the optimum number of MZs for this study area was three and analysis of variance indicated that the MZs were reasonable for the area. Based on the description of MZs, it was concluded that the area could be managed in a site-specific way. © 2012 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.

Ion chromatography, fluorescence spectroscopy, UV-visible absorption spectroscopy and multivariate statistical analysis were applied to study the composition and evolution characteristics of dissolved organic matter (DOM) and heavy metal extracted from chicken manure during composting, and the influence of organic matter evolution on the bioavailability of these heavy metals was further investigated. The result showed that, a large number of organic acids were generated during the active stage, and their concentrations were in the range of 2 097.55-2 155.61 mg·L-1, 39.24-51.58 mg·L-1, 12.52-12.90 mg·L-1 and 1.68-2.31 mg·L-1, respectively. During the curing stage, protein-like matter was degraded, whereas humic-like substances were formed, which increased the humification degree, condensation degree and stability of DOM. The content (1.069-7.106 mg·L-1) of dissolved iron ranked first during composting, that of dissolved Al, As, Cr, Cu and Mn (0.1-1.008 mg·L-1) ranked second, and the concentration of dissolved lead was the lowest. Concentrations of all heavy metals decreased during composting except aluminum. Furthermore, the result from correlation analysis showed that these dissolved heavy metals were bound with DOM, and their bioavailability was low. It could be concluded that, the bioavailability of the heavy metals in chicken manures became lower through the decrease of dissolved heavy metals and the binding between dissolved heavy metals and humic-like substances. ©, 2014, Science Press.

The composition and structure of humic acids formed during composting play an important influence on the quality and mature of compost. In order to explore the composition and evolution mechanism, municipal solid wastes were collected to compost and humic and fulvic acids were obtained from these composted municipal solid wastes. Furthermore, fourier transform infrared spectra and two-dimensional correlation analysis were applied to study the composition and transformation of humic and fulvic acids during composting. The results from fourier transform infrared spectra showed that, the composition of humic acids was complex, and several absorbance peaks were observed at 2917~2924, 2844~2852, 2549, 1662, 1622, 1566, 1454, 1398, 1351, 990~1063, 839 and 711 cm-1. Compared to humic acids, the composition of fulvci acids was simple, and only three peaks were detected at 1725, 1637 and 990 cm-1. The appearance of these peaks showed that both humic and fulvic acids comprised the benzene originated from lignin and the polysaccharide. In addition, humic acids comprised a large number of aliphatic and protein which were hardly detected in fulvic acids. Aliphatic, polysaccharide, protein and lignin all were degraded during composting, however, the order of degradation was different between humic and fulvci acids. The result from two-dimensional correlation analysis showed that, organic compounds in humic acids were degraded in the following sequence: aliphatic>protein> polysaccharide and lignin, while that in fulvic acids was as following: protein> polysaccharide and aliphatic. A large number of carboxyl, alcohols and ethers were formed during the degradation process, and the carboxyl was transformed into carbonates. It can be concluded that, fourier transform infrared spectra coupled with two-dimensional correlation analysis not only can analyze the function group composition of humic substances, but also can characterize effectively the degradation sequence of these groups and identified the formation mechanism and dynamics of humic substances during composting. ©, 2014, Science Press.

Purpose: Biochar has been considered as a stable-carbon source for improving soil quality and long-term sequestration of carbon. However, in view of ecological environmental feedback and the tightly coupled system of carbon-nitrogen cycling, further attention has shifted to the effect of biochar on soil net nitrogen mineralization (SNNM). Recently, ecological evaluations of biochar were mostly based on laboratory incubation or pot experiments, ignoring external and uncontrollable natural factors. Therefore, the essential characteristics of local environments were not accurately described. Materials and methods: In this paper, a nonlinear stochastic model of SNNM based on least squares support vector machine (LS-SVM) was set up to study the effect of biochar on nitrogen cycling in a field experiment. In order to explore this effect in natural conditions, partial derivative (PaD) sensitivity analysis of LS-SVM was firstly proposed, evaluated by the data from a known equation, and then applied to open the “black-box” stochastic model of SNNM. Results and discussion: Comparing with the sensitivity analysis of artificial neural networks (ANNs), the RD values of LS-SVM PaD1 algorithm were almost the same as those of ANNs PaD1 algorithm. However, the RSD values of LS-SVM PaD2 algorithm were closer to the given equation. In the SNNM model, RD values of LS-SVM PaD1 algorithm of initial nitrogen, time, and precipitation were 21, 15, and 14 %, and the biochar RD value was only 0.51 %, implying that biochar did not influence SNNM directly. However, the cumulative RSD of the PaD2 algorithm of biochar with the other factors was 15.05 %, the maximum of the interactions, implying that it could greatly enhance the tendency for SNNM by interacting with other factors. Conclusions: PaD sensitivity analysis of LS-SVM was a stable and reliable data mining method. In the SNNM model, initial nitrogen, time, and precipitation were the main controlling factors of the SNNM model. Biochar did not directly influence SNNM; however, it could greatly enhance the tendency for SNNM by interactions with other factors by decreasing the inhibitory effect of initial nitrogen on SNNM and modifying soil condition to change the effect of other factors on SNNM. © 2016 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg

The seasonal drought and the low available soil moisture affect the agricultural production in red soil region, China. Therefore, it is necessary to simulate and predict the dynamic changes of soil water in the field. Presently, dynamic model has been applied to obtain the soil water information. While the simulation accuracy of dynamic model depends on many complicated parameters, which are difficult to obtain. In this study, the various nonlinear Stochastic Model of soil water simulation systems and chaotic time series analysis methods of prediction systems had been set up. In the nonlinear Stochastic Model of soil water simulation systems, the daily soil water content simulated by Least squares support vector machine (LS-SVM) with the meteorological factors had more stabilities and advantages in soil water simulation performance over the Back Propagation Artificial Neural Network (BP-ANN) and Adaptive Neuro-Fuzzy Inference System (ANFIS). In chaotic time series analysis method of prediction systems, the various signal preprocessing methods including the appropriate de-noising methods and wavelet decomposition methods were applied to preprocess the original chaotic soil water signal. The results of the prediction systems showed that the appropriate de-noising methods and the tendency of wavelet transformation had less effect on the delay time (τ) and embedding dimension (m). The de-noising methods may ignore the detail information of the soil water signal, while the appropriate wavelet transformation to get smaller Maximum Lyapunov Exponent (λ1) of the chaotic soil water signal detail and tendency information can improve the predicting capacity. © 2011 Springer Science+Business Media B.V.

The spatial variability of soil total nutrient levels, which may be greatly affected by parent material, plays an important role in both agriculture and environment, especially with regard to soil fertility and soil quality. Little research has been done that addresses the spatial characteristics of total nutrients. Soil samples (0-20 cm) were taken from 111 points on an approximately 20-m grid in March 2009 using a global positioning system (GPS) to define sample locations. Sixteen soil total chemical properties were analyzed by classical statistical and geostatistical methods. Soil aluminum (Al), calcium (Ca), chromium (Cr), copper (Cu), nitrogen (N), sodium (Na), silicon (Si), strontium (Sr), titanium (Ti), and vanadium (V) exhibited strong spatial dependence, with the nugget-sill ratios ranging from 3.39% (Na) to 23.53% (Si). Soil barium (Ba), iron (Fe), potassium (K), manganese (Mn), phosphorus (P), and zinc (Zn) had moderate spatial dependence, with nugget-sill ratios of 3.39% to 23.53%. The spatial correlation distances varied from 15.7 m (Zn) to 286.5 m (Cr). The clearly patchy distributions indicated that significant positive correlations among Al, Ba, Fe, K, Mn, Na, Si, Ti, and V led to strong positional similarity. The interpolated maps of the nutrients showed the spatial distributions of the soil variables, which is helpful for better understanding their spatial variability and delineating the potential agricultural management zone. The soil total nutrient distribution maps could be used as the basis for site-specific fertilizer application to improve quality and increase yield of flue-cured tobacco in the study area. © 2012 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.

Recent precision agriculture research has focused on the use of management zones (MZ) as a method for variable-rate fertilizer application. A 4-ha tobacco-planted field was selected to define MZ using tobacco quality as basis. To achieve this objective, we collected 111 soil samples from the top 20 cm on an approximately 20-m grid of the study area in March 2009. Classical statistics showed a large variability of all soil nutrients. Results of geostatistics analysis indicated that the eight soil properties examined were best represented through spherical models. Four quality-limiting factors for tobacco were found by stepwise multiple regression analysis. These factors were selected as the variables for delineating MZ. Management Zone Analyst was used to delineate MZ as well as to provide the fuzzy performance index and normalized classification entropy to determine the optimum cluster number. Results showed that the optimum number of MZ in the study area was 4. Furthermore, analysis of variance indicated the heterogeneity of soil variables among the four MZ. Based on the clearly defined MZ, we conclude that tobacco-planted fields can be managed in a site-specific manner by these methods. Copyright © 2011 by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins.

Topping is the important agronomic measure for flue-cured tobacco, and results in increase of the nicotine content in top leaves. Nicotine content is one of the vitals factors for the quality of tobacco leaves. Nicotine is exclusively synthesized in tobacco roots, and then transported to the leaves through the xylem. To investigate the molecular mechanism of increase in nicotine biosynthesis ability following topping, some responses of tobacco roots to topping were analyzed, and the role of NtNAC-R1 in regulating nicotine synthesis and the development of roots was discussed. The electronic cloning technique combined with RT-PCR was successfully used to clone NtNAC-R1 from tobacco roots. The number of lateral root and nicotine contents in tobacco roots increased following topping. Although spraying MeJA on leaves had no effects on the root phenotype, the nicotine contents and the expression of PMT increased markedly. The miR164 was down-regulated, and NtNAC-R1 was up-regulated in tobacco roots after topping. PMT and ODC were down-regulated in transgenic tobacco with antisense NtNAC-R1, and PMT was up-regulated in transgenic tobacco with over-expressed NtNAC-R1. In conclusion, topping can induce the decrease of miR164 and the increase of IAA content in roots, which up-regulate the expression of NtNAC-R1, resulting in the increase of lateral roots and nicotine contents. Meanwhile, topping is a mechanical wounding which can induce JA signal, and JA can enhance nicotine biosynthesis in tobacco roots. So the increase of nicotine biosynthesis ability would be related to cross-talking of JA and auxin signaling pathway after topping. © 2013 Elsevier Masson SAS.
