    • Analysis of vegetation indices to determine nitrogen application and yield prediction in maize (Zea mays L.) from a standard UAV service 

      Maresma Galindo, Ángel; Ariza, Mar; Martínez, Elías; Lloveras Vilamanyà, Jaume; Martínez Casasnovas, José Antonio (MDPI, 2016)
      The growing use of commercial unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) and the need to adjust N fertilization rates in maize (Zea mays L.) currently constitute a key research issue. In this study, different multispectral vegetation ...
    • Fast quantitative method for the analysis of carotenoids in transgenic maize 

      Rivera Vélez, Sol Maiam; Vilaró, Francisca; Zhu, Changfu; Bai, Chao; Farré Martinez, Gemma; Christou, Paul; Canela i Garayoa, Ramon (American Chemical Society, 2013)
      A fast method was developed to determine carotenoid content in transgenic maize seeds. The analysis was carried out using an ultrahigh-pressure liquid chromatograph coupled to a photodiode array detector and a mass ...
    • High-carotenoid maize: development of plant biotechnology prototypes for human and animal health and nutrition 

      Zhu, Changfu; Farré Martinez, Gemma; Zanga, Daniela; Lloveras Vilamanyà, Jaume; Michelena Bárcena, Antonio; Ferrio Díaz, Juan Pedro; Voltas Velasco, Jordi; Slafer, Gustavo A.; Savin, Roxana; Albajes Garcia, Ramon; Eizaguirre Altuna, Matilde; López Alonso, Carmen; Cantero-Martínez, Carlos; Díaz Gómez, Joana; Nogareda, Carmina; Moreno Martínez, José Antonio; Angulo Asensio, Eduardo; Estany Illa, Joan; Pena i Subirà, Ramona Natacha; Tor i Naudí, Marc; Portero Otín, Manuel; Eritja Sánchez, Núria; Arjó Pont, Gemma; Serrano Casasola, José Carlos Enrique; Matias-Guiu, Xavier; Twyman, Richard M.; Sandmann, Gerhard; Capell Capell, Teresa; Christou, Paul (Springer Verlag, 2017-06-01)
      Carolight® is a transgenic maize variety that accumulates extraordinary levels of carotenoids, including those with vitamin A activity. The development of Carolight® maize involved the technical implementation of a novel ...
    • High-value products from transgenic maize 

      Naqvi, Shaista; Ramessar, Koreen; Farré Martinez, Gemma; Sabalza Gallués, Maite; Miralpeix i Anglada, Bruna; Twyman, Richard M.; Capell Capell, Teresa; Zhu, Changfu; Christou, Paul (Elsevier, 2011)
      Maize (also known as corn) is a domesticated cereal grain that has been grown as food and animal feed for tens of thousands of years. It is currently the most widely grown crop in the world, and is used not only for food/feed ...
    • Innate and learned prey-searching behavior in a generalist predator 

      Ardanuy Gabarra, Agnès; Albajes Garcia, Ramon; Turlings, Ted C.J. (Springer Verlag, 2016)
      Early colonization by Zyginidia scutellaris leafhoppers might be a key factor in the attraction and settling of generalist predators, such as Orius spp., in maize fields. In this paper, we aimed to determine whether our ...
    • Irrigation and tillage effects on soil nitrous oxide emissions in maize monoculture 

      Franco-Luesma, Samuel; Cavero Campo, José; Plaza Bonilla, Daniel; Cantero-Martínez, Carlos; Tortosa, Germán; Bedmar, Eulogio J.; Álvaro-Fuentes, Jorge (American Society of Agronomy, 2020)
      Irrigation and soil management can impact soil nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions. Flood and sprinkler irrigation systems together with conventional tillage are the main practices used in the high yielding maize systems in ...
    • Short communication. Mutual pheromone antagonism in two sympatric corn borers, Sesamia nonagrioides and Ostrinia nubilalis, under field conditions 

      López Alonso, Carmen; Eizaguirre Altuna, Matilde; Albajes Garcia, Ramon (Instituto Nacional de Investigación y Tecnología Agraria y Alimentaria (Espanya), 2011)
      In previous studies, we demonstrated cross-antagonism in pheromone perception between pheromone componentsof the two corn (Zea mays L.) borers Sesamia nonagrioides Lefèbvre (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) and Ostrinia nubilalis ...
    • The effect of enhanced carotenoid content of transgenic maize grain on fungal colonization and mycotoxin content 

      Díaz Gómez, Joana; Marín Sillué, Sònia; Nogareda, Carmina; Sanchis, Daniel; Ramos Girona, Antonio J. (Springer Verlag, 2016)
      Novel strategies that address vitamin A deficiency have been developed, such as high-carotenoid maize, a biofortified transgenic maize line rich in carotenoids generated by genetic transformation. The South African white ...
    • Tillage and irrigation system effects on soil carbon dioxide (CO⁠2) and methane (CH⁠4) emissions in a maize monoculture under Mediterranean conditions 

      Franco-Luesma, Samuel; Cavero Campo, José; Plaza Bonilla, Daniel; Cantero-Martínez, Carlos; Arrúe, José Luis; Álvaro-Fuentes, Jorge (Elsevier, 2019-11-11)
      Irrigation as well as soil tillage management are considered two possible strategies to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) emissions from the soil in Mediterranean agroecosystems. The objective of this work was ...
