- ... The Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation (RUSLE and RUSLE2) has long been used by the USDA and others for management planning based on soil erosion and sediment delivery estimates. It has worked well for normal annual agronomic crops but proved to be awkward for forage crops. This is partly because RUSLE and earlier versions of RUSLE2 calculated vegetative residue production only during periods of ...

- ... In Florida, long-term results for identifying high yielding sugarcane (Saccharum spp.) cultivars have been better for Histosols (muck soils) than sand soils. We examined whether selection could be improved by comparing genotypes on a sand soil with and without added mill mud (MM) (in Florida, MM is primarily muck soil). One Erianthus and 31 sugarcane genotypes were planted in 2007 with MM at 0 or ...
