e-infrastructure Roadmap for Open Science in Agriculture

A bibliometric study

The e-ROSA project seeks to build a shared vision of a future sustainable e-infrastructure for research and education in agriculture in order to promote Open Science in this field and as such contribute to addressing related societal challenges. In order to achieve this goal, e-ROSA’s first objective is to bring together the relevant scientific communities and stakeholders and engage them in the process of coelaboration of an ambitious, practical roadmap that provides the basis for the design and implementation of such an e-infrastructure in the years to come.

This website highlights the results of a bibliometric analysis conducted at a global scale in order to identify key scientists and associated research performing organisations (e.g. public research institutes, universities, Research & Development departments of private companies) that work in the field of agricultural data sources and services.

Soil Microbial Population and Yield of Rainfed Maize (Zea mays L.) influenced by Application Farmyard Manure and Biodigester Liquid Manure


A field experiment was conducted during kharif 2010 under rainfed condition on red sandy loam soil to study the "Effect of farmyard manure and Biodigester liquid manure on soil microbial population and yield of rainfed maize (Zea mays L.)" at Agricultural Research Station, University of Agricultural Sciences (Bangalore), Bhavikere, Tarikere taluk. The experiment was laid out in randomised complete block design with three replications. There were totally 13 treatment combinations comprasing of different levels farmyard manure (7.5, 10 and 12.5 t ha(-1)) and Biodigester liquid manure equivalent (75, 100, 125 and 150 kg N ha(-1)) compared with control (FYM 7.5 t ha(-1) + RDF: 100:50:25 kg NPK ha(-1)). Application of 12.5 t ha(-1) FYM + biodegester liquid manure equivalent at 150 kg N ha(-1) recorded significantly higher microbial population in soil after the crop harvest (50.5 x 10(6) CFU g, 26.0 x 10(4) CFU g(-1), 23.8 x 10(3) CFU g(-1) of total bacteria, fungi and actinomycetes, respectively), grain yield (56.2 q ha(-1)) and straw yield (108.9 q ha(-1)) compared with remaining treatments and recorded lower microbial population with application of FYM @ 7.5 t ha(-1) + biodigester liquid manure equivalent @ 75 kg N ha(-1) (32.3 x 10(6) CFU g(-1), 13.8 x 10(4) CFU g(-1), 9.5 x 10(3) CFU g(-1), of total bacteria; fungi and actinomycetes, respectively), grain yield (42.2 q ha(-1)) and straw yield (85.4 q ha(-1)).
