Key message: A DRT protein was identified and proved to be involved in the poplar arsenic resistance through comparative proteomics analysis between arsenic sensitive and resistant cultivars.Abstract: Arsenic pollution in soil has been a serious problem all over the world. It is very important to dissect plants arsenic stress-response mechanisms in phytoremediation. In this study, arsenate-tolerant Populus deltoides cv. ‘zhonglin 2025’ and arsenate-sensitive Populus × euramericana cv. ‘I-45/51’ were screened from 10 poplar varieties. Systematic comparisons between these two cultivars demonstrated that ‘zhonglin 2025’ exhibited slighter morphological and structural injury, lower ROS and MDA accumulation, and higher photosynthesis and ROS scavenging ability under arsenate stress, compared with ‘I-45/51’. Through comparative proteomics analysis, we detected that most of the identified arsenate-responsive proteins were stress and defense related. Among these proteins, PdDRT102 was found to be only highly induced in ‘zhonglin 2025’ under arsenate stress. Heterologous over-expression of PdDRT102 in Arabidopsis conferred to enhanced tolerance to arsenate and sodium chloride. PdDRT102 localizes to the plasma membrane and the nucleus in Arabidopsis. Interestingly, the remarkably increased fluorescence protein signals in the nucleus were found during arsenate stress. Together, these results not only provided an overall understanding on poplar response to arsenate stress, but also revealed that DRT102 protein might involve in protecting poplar against this stress © 2017 Springer-Verlag GmbH Germany

Jianghanplain area is characterized by plenty of rainfall in spring, which results in frequent occurrence of waterlogging of wheat field. Subsurface waterlogging is often found in these fields. It is necessary to investigate the influence of shallow groundwater table and waterlogging followed by submergence on the growth and yield and develop a suitable groundwater depth drainage index for the waterlogged fields. In order to achieve the objectives, tube-shaped concrete facilities were used for the irrigation and drainage adjustment experiment in 2014 and 2015. Wheat was planted in the facility. The treatment of shallow groundwater table at 0, 20, 40 and 60 cm sustained 18 d and different degrees of waterlogging followed by submergence were designed. The treatments were conducted in the booting and filling stages of wheat. The flooding depth in the waterlogging treatment was kept at 5 cm. Meanwhile, the facility for wheat cultivation in soil with moisture kept at 70%-80% of water holding capacity was used as a control. The results showed when the 0-cm groundwater table sustaining 18 d at booting and filling stage could reduce wheat yield by 44.78% and 67.72%, the 20-cm groundwater table sustaining 18 d could reduce the yield by 17.31% and 33.70%, the 40-cm groundwater table sustaining 18 d decreased the yield by 10.44% and 10.34% and the 60-cm groundwater table sustaining 18 d could had higher yield than the that under 100 cm, suggesting that the groundwater table kept at 50 cm at booting and filling stage of winter wheat was suitable. The yield reduction might be due to the decrease of kernels per and thousand seed weight. The regression showed that the yield could reach 95.1%-99.8% and 89.8%-96.9% of the control when the underground water depth was 40- 50 cm, it could reach 100% of the control when the underground water depth was 50.7 and 57.1 cm and it may slightly increase when the underground water depth was 60-80 cm. The wheat suffering from the damage of waterlogging followed by submergence after anthesis caused a severe reduction in wheat yield, and the surface waterlogging had the larger influence than subsurface waterlogging on yield of winter wheat. Different types of drainage indexes including surface and subsurface waterlogging duration days, sum of waterlogging or water table within 50 cm of soil surface, sum of both flood depth and water table within 50 cm of soil surface under surface waterlogging, sum of water table within 50 cm of soil surface after draining surface water logging, and comprehensive water depth of waterlogging were evaluated. The regression between relative yield and these indexes showed that the indexes with surface and subsurface waterlogging duration days, drainage model based on time classification and comprehensive water depth of waterlogging were reliable. If the wheat yield decrease by 15% was allowed, the comprehensive water depth of waterlogging should be 275.6-283.6 cm·d after anthesis. The research may provide support for wheat drainage management in booting and filling stage in the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze River. © 2017, Editorial Department of the Transactions of the Chinese Society of Agricultural Engineering.

A novel double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) mycovirus, designated Magnaporthe oryzae partitivirus 1 (MoPV1), was isolated from a strain of the plant pathogenic fungus Magnaporthe oryzae. The MoPV1 genome has two dsRNA genome segments. The larger segment (1763Â bp) has a single open reading frame (ORF) with a conserved RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (RdRp) domain. The smaller segment (1491Â bp) contains a single ORF encoding a putative coat protein (CP). Homology searches and phylogenetic analysis indicated that MoPV1 is a new member of the genus Gammapartitivirus. This is the first report of a mycovirus of the family Partitiviridae identified in Magnaporthe oryzae. Â© 2016, Springer-Verlag Wien.

An association mapping of quantitative trait loci (QTLs) regulating the concentrations of eight elements in brown rice (Oryza sativa L.) was performed using USDA mini-core subset cultivated in two different environments. In addition, correlation between the grain elemental concentrations was also studied. A total of 60 marker loci associated with 8 grain elemental concentrations were identified, and these loci were clustered into 37 genomic regions. Twenty new QTLs were found to be associated with important elements such as Zn, Fe, and P, along with others. Fe concentration was associated with the greatest number of markers in two environments. In addition, several important elemental/metal transporter genes were identified in a few mapped regions. Positive correlation was observed within all grain elemental concentrations. In summary, the results provide insight into the genetic basis of rice grain element accumulation and may help in the identification of genes associated with the accumulation of Zn, Fe, and other essential elements in rice. © 2015 American Chemical Society.

Roots, leaves, and intermediate sections between roots and leaves (ISRL) of wheat seedlings show different physiological functions at the protein level. We performed the first integrative proteomic analysis of different tissues of the drought-tolerant wheat cultivar Hanxuan 10 (HX-10) and drought-sensitive cultivar Chinese Spring (CS) during a simulated drought and recovery. Differentially expressed proteins (DEPs) in the roots (122), ISRLs (146), and leaves (163) showed significant changes in expression in response to drought stress and recovery. Numerous DEPs associated with cell defense and detoxifications were significantly regulated in roots and ISRLs, while in leaves, DEPs related to photosynthesis showed significant changes in expression. A significantly larger number of DEPs related to stress defense were upregulated in HX-10 than in CS. Expression of six HSPs potentially related to drought tolerance was significantly upregulated under drought conditions, and these proteins were involved in a complex protein-protein interaction network. Further phosphorylation analysis showed that the phosphorylation levels of HSP60, HSP90, and HOP were upregulated in HX-10 under drought stress. We present an overview of metabolic pathways in wheat seedlings based on abscisic acid signaling and important protein expression patterns. © 2014 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.

Physiological and morphological traits of flag leaf play important roles in determining crop grain yield and biomass. In order to understand genetic basis controlling physiological and morphological traits of flag leaf, a double haploid (DH) population derived from the cross of Huaai 11×Huadamai 6 was used to detect quantitative trait locus (QTL) underlying 7 physiological and 3 morphological traits at the pre-filling stage in year 2012 and 2013. Results: Total of 38 QTLs distributed on chromosome 1H, 2H, 3H, 4H, 6H and 7H were detected, and explained 6.53% - 31.29% phenotypic variation. The QTLs flanked by marker Bmag829 and GBM1218 on chromosome 2H were associated with net photosynthetic rate (Pn), stomatal conductance (Gs), flag leaf area (LA), flag leaf length (FLL), flag leaf width (FLW), relative chlorophyll content (SPD) and leaf nitrogen concentration (LNC). Conclusion: Two QTL cluster regions associated with physiological and morphological traits, one each on the chromosome 2H and 7H, were observed. The two markers (Bmag829 and GBM1218) may be useful for marker assisted selection (MAS) in barley breeding. © Liu et al.

Sub-surface waterlogging is one of the main agricultural meteorological disasters affecting summer crops in Jianli County, Hubei Province, China. For sub-surface waterlogging is caused by the long-term influence of high soil moisture on crops, it is not easily identified. Few studies were found on the risk evaluation and zonation of crops injured by sub-surface waterlogging. The researchers of this paper firstly adjusted the parameters of DHSVM (distributed hydrology soil vegetation model) by using soil moisture data collected from February 13 to May 20 in 2014 and verified it with the data collected from May 25 to September 23 in 2014. The result showed that the DHSVM could be used to simulate the soil moisture changes in Jianli County. Based on this model, the influencing parameters of waterlogging injury were input, which included meteorology, soil physical properties, groundwater levels, topography, drainage and irrigation conditions, and the farming system. Then the spatial distributions of soil surface moisture were simulated using the DHSVM with a step of 24 h during the growth seasons (March and April) of summer crops from 1970 to 2014. Also the waterlogging moisture indicators were also used to analyze the injury times of each grid in Jianli County (waterlogging injury occurs when the water level is less than 60 cm and surface soil moisture is higher than 95% of soil saturation for 5 days), and the spatial resolution was 90 m. In this way, the spatial distribution of the sub-surface waterlogging injured ratio (SWIR) was calculated, as well as the indicator of the degree of sub-surface waterlogging injury. According to the different range of SWIR value, the research areas which were at the risk of the sub-surface waterlogging injury, were consequently classified into 4 grades: the severe damage zone (SWIR greater than or equal to 0.6), the moderate damage zone (SWIR greater than or equal to 0.3 and less than 0.6), the mild damage zone (SWIR greater than or equal to 0.1 and less than 0.3), and the damage-free zone (SWIR less than 0.1). Thus the zonation of sub-surface waterlogging injury of summer crops was mapped. With some risk evaluation of each zone, the zonation conformed to the actual situation. Since the method used in this paper is based on the model and all the damage factors are taken into account, it is more accurate than the division only using the meteorological elements and proved to be an applicable method for the zonation of sub-surface waterlogging injury on the county scale. ©, 2015, Chinese Society of Agricultural Engineering.

Significant efforts have been devoted to assess the effects of conservation tillage (no-tillage [NT] and straw returning) on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, global warming potential (GWP), greenhouse gas intensity (GHGI), and net economic budget in crop growing seasons. However, only a few studies have evaluated the effects conservation tillage on the net ecosystem economic budget (NEEB) in a rice-wheat cropping system. Therefore, a split-plot field experiment was performed to comprehensively evaluate the effects of tillage practices (i.e., conventional intensive tillage [CT] and NT) and straw returning methods (i.e., straw returning or removal of preceding crop) on the soil total organic carbon (TOC), GHG emissions, GWP, GHGI, and NEEB of sandy loam soil in a rice-wheat cropping system in central China. Conservation tillage did not affect rice and wheat grain yields. Compared with CT and straw removal, NT and straw returning significantly increased the TOC of 0-5 cm soil layer by 2.9% and 7.8%, respectively. However, the TOC of 0-20 cm soil layer was not affected by tillage practices and straw returning methods. NT did not also affect the N2O emissions during the rice and wheat seasons; NT significantly decreased the annual CH4 emissions by 7.5% and the annual GWP by 7.8% compared with CT. Consequently, GHGI under NT was reduced by 8.1%. Similar to NT, straw returning did not affect N2O emissions during the rice and wheat seasons. Compared with straw removal, straw returning significantly increased annual CH4 emissions by 35.0%, annual GWP by 32.0%, and annual GHGI by 31.1%. Straw returning did not also affect NEEB; by contrast, NT significantly increased NEEB by 15.6%. NT without straw returning resulted in the lowest GWP, the lowest GHGI, and the highest NEEB among all treatments. This finding suggested that NT without straw returning may be applied as a sustainable technology to increase economic and environmental benefits. Nevertheless, environmentally straw returning methods should be considered in future studies. © 2015 Elsevier Ltd.

A field experiment was conducted to investigate effects of tillage practices [no-tillage (NT) and conventional intensive tillage (CT)] and oilseed rape residue returning levels (0, 3000, 6000, 9000 kg dry matter ha−1) on methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and grain yield from paddy fields during the 2011 rice growing season after 2 years oilseed rape-rice rotation in central China. The experiment was established following a split-plot design of a randomized complete block with tillage practices as the main plots and residue returning levels as the sub-plots. NT significantly decreased CO2 and CH4 emissions by 38.8 and 27.3 % compared with CT, respectively. Residue returning treatments released significantly more CO2 and CH4 by 855.5–10410 and 51.5–210.5 kg ha−1 than no residue treatments, respectively. The treatments of 3,000 and 6,000 kg ha−1 residue returning significantly increased rice grain yield by 37.9 and 32.0 % compared with the treatment of no residue returning, respectively. Compared with NT, CT increased yield-scaled emissions of CH4 and CO2 by 16.0 %. The treatments of 6,000 and 9,000 kg ha−1 residue returning significantly increased yield-scaled emissions of CH4 and CO2 by 18.1 and 61.5 %, respectively, compared with the treatment of no residue returning. Moreover, the treatment of NT in combination with 3,000 kg ha−1 residues had the lowest yield-scaled emissions of CH4 and CO2 across tillage and residue treatments. In this way, this study revealed that the combination of NT with 3,000 kg ha−1 residues was a suitable strategy for optimizing carbon emissions and rice grain yield. © 2015, The International Society of Paddy and Water Environment Engineering and Springer Japan.
