- ... Replacement of fallow in crop–fallow systems with cover crops (CCs) may improve soil properties. We assessed whether replacing fallow in no-till winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)–fallow with winter and spring CCs for 5 yr reduced wind and water erosion, increased soil organic carbon (SOC), and improved soil physical properties on a Ulysses silt loam (fine-silty, mixed, superactive, mesic Aridic ...

- ... Non-steady state (NSS) chambers provide much of the data used in bottom-up assessments of global nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions. Due to inherent limitations in NSS chambers and flux calculation (FC) methods, it is likely that these assessments are negatively biased. Potentially more accurate FC schemes have been developed recently. However, there is little consensus regarding optimum FC methods and ...
