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. If you have any comment or feedback on the bibliometric study, please use the online form.

Soil carbon sequestration and agronomic productivity of an Alfisol for a groundnut-based system in a semiarid environment in southern India


Soil organic carbon (SOC) is a strong determinant of soil quality and agronomic productivity especially under harsh arid and semiarid environments of the tropics. Thus, a 20-year experiment was used to assess the impact of rainfed groundnut (Arachis hypogeae) monocropping, fertilization and manuring on soil quality, SOC sequestration, and crop yield sustainability on an Alfisol in southern India. Five treatments with 4 replications were: (1) control (no fertilizer or manure), (2) 100% recommended dose of fertilizer (RDF, 20:40:40 kg ha(-1) of N:P2O5:K2O), (3) 50% RDF + 4 Mg ha(-1) of groundnut shells (GNS), (4) 50% RDF + 4 Mg ha(-1) of farmyard manure (FYM) and (5) 5 Mg ha(-1) of FYM. The SOC concentration to 1-m depth increased from 2.3 to 3.5 g kg(-1) (52.2%) in 50% RDF+ 4 Mg ha(-1) GNS over control and mean SOC sequestration rate was 0.57 Mg C ha(-1) yr(-1). Higher mean pod yield of groundnut (Mg ha(-1)) was obtained with 50% RDF + 4 Mg ha(-1) FYM (1.03). The rate of increase in groundnut pod yield was 13 kg ha(-1) yr(-1) for every one Mg increase in profile SOC stock. A minimum of 1.12 Mg C ha(-1) yr(-1) input was needed to maintain the zero change in SOC. Hence, combined use of chemical fertilizers and organic manure is essential to enhancing SOC sequestration in monocrop regions in semi arid tropical conditions. (c) 2012 Elsevier B.V.
