Durum wheat growth analysis in a semiarid environment in relation to crop rotation and nitrogen rate

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

SUMMARY – A research on durum wheat growth analysis was carried out at Sparacia farm (37°37’N-13°42’E) duringthe 2000-2001 and 2001-2002 seasons in a typical semi-arid environment. The objective of this research was todetermine the effects of crop rotation (continuous wheat and wheat-pea rotation) and N fertilizer rates (0, 60 and 120Kg ha-1) on growth of four durum wheat varieties, characterized by different productive ability and adaptation. A split-split-plot design with three replications was used. The study highlighted the role of the CGR index in order to enablea better knowledge of the relationship among crop techniques and wheat yield response
