    The effect of different concentrations salt stress on seedling growth and expression of related genes were explored in this study. Firstly, salt tolerant variety Yura Hama Daikon and susceptible variety Wujinhong were selected according to germination under salt stress conditions among 11 cultivars.And then the seedling height(SH) and the leaf scorch index(LSI) of Yura Hama Daikon and Wujinhong were investigated under salt stress treatment.The results showed that SH decreased and LSI increased under salt stress in both varieties.Compared with the salt-sensitive variety Wujinhong,the salt-tolerant variety Yura Hama Daikon had a smaller decrease in SH and lower LSI.Under 200 mmol/L salt stress,SH and LSI of salt-tolerant Yura Hama Daikon were 46.18% and 20.56,respectively,while those of salt-sensitive Wujinhong were 75.25% and 56.11.The transcription of RsCAT and RsSOD genes was studied in salt-tolerant and susceptible varieties under different salt concentrations by qPCR.The expression of RsCAT gene was first increased and then decreased under low salt concentration treatment,and reached the maximum at 7 day.When treated with high salt concentration,the transcription of RsCAT in Wujinhong was the highest at 48 h,while the expression level in salt-tolerant varieties increased gradually and maintained for a longer time,reaching the highest at 7 day.After high salt concentration treatment,the transcription of RsSOD gene reached the highest expression level at 24 hours,and then maintained a higher level in salt-tolerant variety.In salt-sensitive varieties,the maximum expression level of RsSOD appeared at 14 day.The above results will lay foundation for revealing the mechanism of salt stress in radish and provide technical support for radish salt-tolerant breeding.

    In order to clarify the drought resistance and drought resistance mechanism of Allium polyrhizum in Inner Mongolia grassland,potted water control method was adopted.Two gradients were set,75% of the maximum field water capacity as the control(CK),and 25% of the soil relative water content under 30 days of drought stress.The root morphology,physiological characteristics and leaf photosynthetic characteristics of Allium polyrhizum from different sources were analyzed under drought stress. The result showed that Allium polyrhizum in Siziwang Banner compared with the Chifeng and Ordos was remaining relatively high root surface area,root volume and root length 0-0.5 mm in diameter. Allium polyrhizum root growth was relatively less affected by drought stress,chloroplasts were relatively stable and strong drought resistance in Siziwang Banner. Drought stress significantly decreased the above ground biomass,below ground biomass and total biomass of Allium polyrhizum in Chifeng and Ordos,but had no significant effects on Siziwang Banner(P>0.05). The Pn,Tr,Gs,Ci and leaves relative water content of Allium polyrhizum seedlings were significantly decreased and the relative permeability of cytoplasmic membrane was markedly increased under the whole drought stress treatment. Drought stress induced stomatal closure of Allium polyrhizum leaves and reduced transpiration to decrease water loss.The root characteristics,relative water content,chlorophyll and photosynthetic characteristics of Allium polyrhizum in different sources were certain differences under the same treatment. In general,the effect of drought stress on Allium polyrhizum in Siziwang Banner was relatively weak,it was indicating stronger drought tolerance.

    The purpose of this study was to explore the effects of different drought stress levels on maize growth traits and yield in the semi-arid region of Northeast China, and to lay a theoretical foundation for further research on the physiological mechanism of maize drought resistance.Three kinds of maize varieties with different drought tolerance were selected and five water gradients of normal water supply(CK), light drought(LS), moderate drought(MS), severe drought(SS)and lethal(S)were set at maize jointing, tasselling and filling stages, respectively. The effects of different drought stress on the growth traits and yield related indexes of three maize varieties were comprehensively analyzed. The plant height, ear position and dry matter weight of maize decreased with the increasing of drought degree, but the stem diameter had no significant difference with the increasing of drought degree. The plant height, ear position and dry matter accumulation of maize variety Jinqing 707 was the highest, followed by Nendan 19 and Fudan 16. During tasselling stage, the spike characters of maize changed most obviously under drought stress, and the maize yield was the lowest under severe drought, and no yield under continuous drought.Under the same drought degree, the worse the drought tolerance of maize varieties, the greater the yield reduction. The specific performance of maize yield is Jinqing 707 > Nendan 19 > Fudan 16.A comprehensive analysis of multiple indicators shows that tasselling stage is the key period of water requirement of maize, which is easily affected by drought stress. At the same time, it is pointed out that drought stress or serious degree of drought stress in tasselling stage is the main factor leading to the decrease of maize yield.

    To increase crop yields,reduce the application of chemical fertilizers,and improve nutrient utilization efficiency,N-efficient maize cultivars were screened and popularized. An understanding of nitrogen uptake,utilization,and field balance in maize cultivars with contrasting nitrogen efficiency response to N management is essential for efficient breeding and cultivation of maize to produce fodder and bio-energy. To determine the effects of N management on these factors during maize cultivation,a two-year field experiment was conducted in 2015 and 2016 in a subtropical semi-humid climate zone. The results showed that the proportion of N in the stem plus sheath and leaves in ZH311 during VT and R6 was significantly higher than that of XY508. In addition,the N accumulation into grain post-silking(NAG)and contribution of NAG to grain(CNAG)of ZH311 were significantly higher than those of XY508,while the N redistribution rate(NRR)and contribution of NRA to grain yield(CNRA)of ZH311 were significantly lower than those of XY508. The higher proportion of N in the vegetative organs of a N-efficient cultivar,ZH311,led to a significantly higher N accumulation in each stage than that observed for the N-inefficient cultivar XY508. The N accumulation advantage of ZH311 was higher after silking than before silking. The high post-silking N accumulation of ZH311 inhibited the pre-silking N transport that determines the N transport rate and contribution rate to grain of pre-silking N accumulation,which were significantly lower than those of XY508. Meanwhile,the N uptake efficiency,N recovery efficiency,and N partial productivity of ZH311 were significantly higher than those of XY508. Compared with that of XY508,the root system of ZH311 could more effectively absorb and utilize inorganic N in the 40-80 cm soil layer,reduce N deposition,and significantly decrease apparent N losses. The differences in apparent N losses between the two cultivars were mainly elicited post-topdressing. In summary,ZH311 has not only a higher yield per unit area than XY508,but also lower N losses,consequently reducing environmental risks.

    Yield and nitrogen accumulation of maize will decline under soil acidification,but the physiological mechanism is not clear.Field experiment was conducted with four different soil acidity gradients:nautral acid(pH=7,CK),weak acid(pH=6,T1),medium acid(pH=5,T2)and strong acid(pH=4,T3),comparing yield,nitrogen accumulation,grain protein content,nitrogen metabolism-related enzyme activities,gene expression,nitrate nitrogen,ammonium nitrogen,soluble protein,free amino acid content in leaf and stem of maize.The results showed that compared with CK,the yield of T1,T2 and T3 treatments declined by 4.2%,30.7% and 52.3%,respectively.Grain number per spike decreased by 1.8%,28.1% and 42.8%;grain protein content showed a downward trend with T3 treatment significantly reduced by 14.5%.At the big flare stage,with the increase of soil acidity,nitrogen accumulation in leaves showed a downward trend,it was significantly decreased in T2 and T3 treatment by 28.1% and 56.2%,respectively.In stem,the nitrogen accumulation increased firstly and then decreased.Compared with CK,T1 treatment was significantly increased by 33.1%,and T3 treatment significantly decreased by 65.4%.At the big flare stage, the activities of nitrate reductase, glutamate dehydrogenase and glutamate synthase in leaf and stem under T3 treatment were significantly higher than those in CK, while the activities of glutamine synthase in leaf were significantly decreased. The amino acids in stem decreased first and then increased.With the increase of soil acidity,the expressions of ZmGln2 and ZmFd-GOGAT were up-regulated,which promoted the assimilation of NH 4 + released by photorespiration and NH 4 + produced by NO 3 - reduction;the down-regulated expression of ZmGln1.2-ZmGln1.4, ZmNADH-GOGAT2 in leaf and ZmNADH-GOGAT1 in stem decreased the assimilation of NH 4 + released by catabolism.By up-regulating or down-regulating the expression of relevant genes,maize could promote the production of more free amino acids and soluble proteins during nitrogen metabolism to resist acidification stress,but also reduced the nitrogen accumulation,resulting in lower yield and grain protein content.

    NRL(NPH3/RPT2-Like)is a type of light-responsive protein unique to plants and plays a vital role in the phototropic signal pathway. To reveal the NRL gene maize genome's characteristics and expression,we analyzed them using bioinformatics methods combined with qRT-PCR technology. The property,structure,evolution of their encoded proteins,and growth period tissue expression and stress expression were analyzed. 31 ZmNRL genes identified were located in nine maize chromosomes,encoding protein amino acids 464-749 aa,which predicted to have chloroplast,nuclear and cytoplasmic locations. According to protein conservation,ZmNRL family was divided into four categories. Their gene structure also presented certain conservation,the most contained four exons. Analysis of the cis-elements of gene promoters revealed a large number of abscisic acids,jasmonic acid,light response,and anti-oxidation elements,among which G-box and Sp1 were two types of light-related elements. The expression of ZmNRL family genes in tissues during the growth period showed a temporal and spatial specificity,and the majority expression level was not high. Only ZmNRL2,ZmNRL4,ZmNRL24,and ZmNRL29 highly expressed. Furthermore,the characteristic modules were produced based on the data of the tissue co-expression genes. And the GO enrichment analysis of a particular leaf growth module containing six ZmNRL genes,mainly associated with the plastid organization biological processes and rRNA binding molecular functions. The expression of ZmNRL5,ZmNRL7,ZmNRL12,and ZmNRL19 genes were analyzed by qRT-PCR under salt,drought,high temperature,and Rhizoctonia solani inoculation treatments. The results showed that ZmNRL12 was significantly up-regulated in maize seedlings treated with high temperature,while ZmNRL5,ZmNRL7 and ZmNRL19 genes were down-regulated in drought,salt and pathogen treatments. In summary,31 ZmNRL genes were identified in the maize genome. They not only had apparent specific tissue expression but also participated in biotic and abiotic stress responses.

    To investigate the function of soybean GmPP2C89 gene in plant abiotic stress response and adaptation. The expression patterns of GmPP2C89 under NaCl,PEG and mannitol treatments were detected by transcriptome data and Real-time quantitative PCR. Then,the cis-acting elements on the promoter of GmPP2C89 in response to abiotic stress were analyzed,and promoters of different lengths were cloned according to the distribution of cis-elements to construct fusion GUS vectors to obtain the corresponding transgenic Arabidopsis. The response of the promoters to NaCl,PEG and mannitol was analyzed by GUS staining. Transgenic Arabidopsis overexpressing the GmPP2C89 was constructed,and the root length,leaf MDA content and electrolytic leakage,and the expression of salt stress-related genes(SOD,POD,CAT,RD26,RD29A,and RD29B)were measured under normal and NaCl treatment conditions. The results showed that NaCl,PEG and mannitol treatments all led to a significant increase in the expression level of soybean GmPP2C89;the promoter region contained many cis-acting elements such as ABRE,DRE,G-box,MBS,MYB,MYC and TC-rich repeats which were involved in abiotic stress response,and this promoter was more responsive to NaCl treatment. In addition,under the salt treatment,the root length of transgenic Arabidopsis GmPP2C89-OX was significantly greater than that of WT,while the MDA content and electrolytic leakage were significantly lower than those of WT,and the salt tolerance was significantly enhanced;the expression of antioxidant enzyme genes(SOD and POD)and ABA pathway key gene RD29B in GmPP2C89-OX was significantly higher than that in WT. These results indicated that soybean GmPP2C89 was induced by NaCl,PEG and mannitol,and GmPP2C89 overexpression could enhance the salt tolerance of transgenic Arabidopsis by activating antioxidant and ABA pathways.

    In order to explore stress resistance genes in wheat and study the molecular mechanism of calmodulin-like genes in plant stress resistance,a calmodulin-like gene TaCML8-A was cloned from wheat by electronic cloning combined with RT-PCR.Bioinformatics analysis showed that the open reading frame length of the gene was 519 bp,encoding 172 amino acid sequences,including PTZ00184 and FRQ1 superfamily,four EF-hand domains,including four calcium binding sites.The molecular weight of the encoded protein was 18.31 ku and the isoelectric point was 4.54.It belonged to acidic protein.Subcellular localization showed that TaCML8-A protein was distributed in the nucleus and cell membrane.Nucleotide sequence alignment showed that TaCML8-A had the closest genetic relationship with rice OsCML14,with a similarity of 79.17%.qRT-PCR results showed that the expression of TaCML8-A gene in shoot and root of wheat increased under salt,osmotic and cold stress,indicating that plants might respond to thoese stresses by increasing the expression of TaCML8-A.During heat shock,TaCML8-A gene was induced and inhibited in root and shoot,respectively,so as to play different functions.The calmodulin-like gene TaCML8-A was successfully cloned from wheat and analyzed for expression.It is preliminarily speculated that the gene might be involved in regulating abiotic stress of plants,so as to provide basic theoretical support for the follow-up study of its biological function.

    Application of some hormonal signaling compounds,as brassinolides and their derivatives,could significantly improve the salt stress resistance in plants.The purpose of present work was to test whether the over-expressing of Methylsterol monooxygenase gene(SMO),a key gene coding a bio-synthesizing enzyme of sterol in plants,could promote the salt-stress tolerance of target plants.PnSMO1.1,gene encoding of methylsterol monooxygenase in the plant species of Pharbitis nil was firstly cloned and then used as target gene for following genetic transformation process,while wild-type Pharbitis nil seedlings were used as the receptor plants for constructing of the transgenic lines which over-expressed PnSMO1.1 genes.In this work,the PnSMO1.1 gene transformed Pharbitis nil lines were constructed via an ovary injection transformation method.Plantlets from individual PCR identified transgenic plant lines were used as materials to detect vegetative growth figures and some pivotal physiological indicators,for instance,contents of malondialdehyde (MDA),relative conductivity,as well as castasterone and 6-deoxo-castasterone contents in cells under stresses with gradient NaCl conditions varied from 0—200 mmol/L.The results showed that the over-expression PnSMO1.1 significantly improved the relative growth of roots and hypocotyls in transformants than in wild-type (WT) or vacant plasmid transformed control (BL) plants under 100—250 mmol/L NaCl stresses.Compared to WT and BL seedlings,significantly higher accumulation of 6-deoxo-castasterone,but lower relative conductivity (rEC) values,castasterone accumulation or MDA contents were found in transgenic lines under various NaCl stresses.Stresses such as salinity,drought and freezing temperatures,had severely suppressed the vegetative growth of plants,as well as their yields.These results highlighted that over-expression of the PnSMO1.1 gene could significantly improve the salinity-stress resistance of transgenic plants by delicately adjusting the dynamic homeostasis of brassinolides in cells,and protecting the structural integrity of plasma membrane.

    The SiPRR73 gene was cloned from Yangu 11 using RT-PCR technology,and through analyzing tissue-specific expression,responsive features of SiPRR73 to different photoperiods,photo-thermal combinational treatments and five abiotic stress treatments,the regulation mode of photoperiod and temperature on SiPRR73,and the responsive pattern of SiPRR73 to abiotic stresses in foxtail millet were explored. The results showed that totally 2 928 bp cDNA sequence of SiPRR73 was obtained from Yangu 11,which included 2 283 bp CDS region,encoding 760 amino acids. The SiPRR73 proteins of C4 crops including Panicum miliaceum,Panicum hallii,Sorghum bicolor and Zea mays showed relatively close relationship with SiPRR73. The second parietal leaf was the highest expression tissue of SiPRR73,but the expression level at root,stem and panicle tissues was relatively lower. The expression level of SiPRR73 was higher at light period than that at dark period under both short-day and long-day conditions,and during the whole vegetative growth phase,SiPRR73 showed higher expression level under long-day compared to short-day,which indicated that the expression of SiPRR73 was induced by light and controlled by photoperiod. The temperature determined expression peak number of SiPRR73 and the photoperiod determined occurrence time of expression peaks,so temperature and photoperiod participated in regulating of SiPRR73 expression mutually. PEG and low temperature stresses induced SiPRR73 expression totally,NaCl induced SiPRR73 expression at early stress stage,but inhibited it at later stress stage. Fe stress inhibited SiPRR73 expression at early stage,but induced it at later stage. ABA stress caused the close responsive feature of SiPRR73 to NaCl. This study indicated that SiPRR73 showed light-dependent expression feature,and photoperiod and temperature regulated SiPRR73 by interaction pattern,suggesting that SiPRR73 participated in adaptability regulation process to different photo-thermal conditions and might play a certain role in coping with drought,low temperature,ABA,NaCl and Fe stresses in foxtail millet.

    To study the alleviating effect of exogenous Nitric oxide(NO) on the root system of watermelon under aluminum stress,watermelon variety Zaojia 84-24 was used as the experimental material,and the effects of different concentrations(50,100,200,500 μmol/L) of NO on the physiological and mineral content of watermelon root under aluminum stress were studied by applying nitroprune(NO donor) under high concentration of aluminum stress(1 200 μmol/L). The results showed that the root electrolyte leakage and the content of malondialdehyde increased under high Al ion stress,and the activities of superoxide dismutase(SOD),peroxidase(POD) and catalase(CAT) were significantly decreased in order to maintain the osmotic equilibrium by significantly increasing the content of proline and soluble sugar in the root. Aluminum stress inhibited the absorption of Ca,Mg,Fe and P,promoted the absorption of K,Zn and Al,but the content of Cu had not changed significantly. After the addition of exogenous NO,the root electrolyte leakage and the content of malondialdehyde decreased,the degree of plasma membrane peroxidation decreased,the content of soluble sugar in the root decreased significantly,and the content of proline increased significantly. The activities of SOD,POD and CAT increased first and then decreased with the increase of NO concentration. NO not only promoted the absorption and accumulation of nitrogen by increasing the activity of nitrate reductase,but also promoted the absorption of Ca,Mg,Fe,Cu and P by watermelon roots,and inhibited the accumulation of Zn,Al and K contents by roots. The addition of L-NAME,an endogenous inhibitor of NO,eliminated the alleviating effect of NO on aluminum stress in watermelon and even inhibited it. These results indicated that exogenous SNP could alleviate oxidative damage of watermelon roots under Al stress,and alleviate the effects of Al toxicity by affecting the absorption of nutrient elements by roots.

    In order to explore the flowering effect of different photoperiods and its relationship with hormones and growth,Hongmian autumn chrysanthemum was used as test material,and five photoperiod treatments were set up.The natural photoperiod(long-day photoperiods) in summer in Nanjing was used as control.Photosynthetic pigments(chlorophyll a,chlorophyll b,carotenoids),growth indexes(plant height,stem diameter,leaf number),root activity,development duration of different periods and endogenous hormones(budding stage,bud breaking stage,petal formation stage,initial flowering stage,full blooming stage,early wilting stage),flower quality(flower diameter,flower number per plant,anthocyanin) were measured.The results showed that the chrysanthemum grew most vigorously under long-day photoperiods,the plant was tall and strong,and the photosynthetic pigment content was high.7 h/17 h,8 h/16 h plant photosynthetic pigment content was low,the worst growth,lodging,due to light stress,root activity was higher.The growth of plants under 10 h/14 h was dwarfing symmetrical and they had small plant height,thick stem and dense leaves.The flowering response of chrysanthemum was closely related to the endogenous hormone content in leaves.The flower development rate of chrysanthemum was inversely proportional to IAA and GA3,and was proportional to ZT and ABA.7 h/17 h,8 h/16 h and long-day photoperiods significantly delayed the flowering stage of chrysanthemum.In long-day photoperiods,due to sufficient growth,the cut flowers were large and more but wilted quickly.In 7 h/17 h and 8 h/16 h,due to insufficient vegetative growth,chrysanthemum was small and less,the anthocyanin content was low,and the flower quality was the worst.Flower bud differentiation started fastest at 10 h/14 h,and the development cycle of inflorescence was short,the flowering was early and lasted for a long time.The quality of flowers was also high due to good growth conditions.Photoperiod had the greatest influence on the initiation of flower bud differentiation and the formation of buds.Although the expansion of hyoid petals was also affected by photoperiod,it did not play a decisive role in the advance of flowering.Thus,under the control of 10 h/14 h chrysanthemum in growth morphology,inflorescence development cycle,cut flower quality performance was the best,most suitable for summer in Nanjing Area chrysanthemum flower cultivation,when chrysanthemum bud color after moving to long sunshine normal flowering.

    Nucleotide binding site(NBS) genes are a type of disease resistance genes widely present in plants.In order to screen the powdery mildew-resistant genes for wheat breeding,the changes in the expression level of wheat NBS genes after infection with Blumeria graminis f.sp.tritici(Bgt) were analyzed.Bioinformatics methods were used to assemble the original transcriptome data of a disease-resistant wheat variety infected by Bgt at 0,24,48,72 h,and 1 283 TaNBS with expression data were screened out,which were distributed on 21 chromosomes.Results of expression difference analysis showed that the expression levels of 395 TaNBS were significantly changed after being infected by Bgt,and they were divided into five types,including down-up-up,up-up-down,up-down-up,down-down-up as well as up-up-up,according to the change trend in three time periods(0-24 h,24-48 h,48-72 h).Using qRT-PCR technology,ten TaNBS with the most significant differences were selected from the up-up-up type for verification.The results showed that three genes Ta7dlLoc004854, Ta7dlLoc000139 and Ta3asLoc007663 remained significantly up-regulated in a self-breeding disease-resistant wheat germplasm CH7124 after being infected by Bgt. Using virus-induced gene silencing technology,the expression levels of the above three genes in CH7124 were down-regulated to obtain the silent plants.The results of the inoculation test showed that only the Bgt-infection type of Ta7dlLoc000139-silent plants changed from immune to high resistance or medium resistance,indicating that the decrease in the expression level of Ta7dlLoc000139 caused the plant resistance to weaken.Sequence analysis results showed that Ta7dlLoc000139 had a total length of 4 042 bp,contained three exons and two introns,and contained a large number of regulatory elements such as CGCG-Box,GATA-Box and CAAT-Box in the 2 000 bp region before its start codon.The research results could provide a theoretical basis for wheat disease resistance molecular breeding.

    In order to explore the relationship between different genetic composition and quality of the high-yield tetraploid rice,and the reasons for the changes in protein content,the national high-quality varieties Meixiangzhan 2(MXZ2) and Xiangyaxiangzhan(XYXZ),Aijiaonante diploid(AJNT-2x),high-yield autotetraploid Aijiaonante(AJNT-4x),and neo-tetraploid Huaduo 1(H1) were used as the test materials. The endosperm protein content was determined by BCA method,the quality analysis was performed by the near-infrared grain analyzer,the amino acid content was determined by the automatic amino acid analyzer,and the expression difference of the glutelin genes was analyzed by qRT-PCR. The results were as follows:The protein contents of brown rice and polished rice of AJNT-4x were respectively for 182.70 and 115.70 mg/g,which was much higher than that of MXZ2,XYXZ,and AJNT-2x,and the nutritional quality of AJNT-4x was greatly enhanced;the gel consistency of AJNT-4x was only for 44.70 mm,which was much lower than that of MXZ2,XYXZ,and AJNT-2x,and the difference was significant,and eating quality of AJNT-4x was significantly reduced. The protein content of polished rice of H1 was the lowest of the samples,which was only for 71.30 mg/g,but its gel consistency was for 112.70 mm,which was between the national high-quality varieties MXZ2 and XYXZ.At 30 days after flowering, the total contents of 17 amino acids and essential amino acids of AJNT-4x were higher than those of AJNT-2x and H1,and which of H1 was the lowest;the total content of 17 amino acids for H1 reached a peak at 15 days after flowering,while the total content of 17 amino acids for AJNT-4x and AJNT-2x reached a peak at 20 days after flowering,the accumulation of amino acid content stopped prematurely in H1, which resulted the lowest total content of 17 amino acids in H1 at mature period.During the whole endosperm development process,the accumulation trend of the four storage proteins was basically the same in AJNT-4x,H1,and AJNT-2x,but there were differences in the rapid accumulation time;rapid accumulation of glutelin in AJNT-4x was earlier than that in AJNT-2x and H1,and the rapid accumulation time in AJNT-4x was longer than those in AJNT-2x and H1,which resulted in highest protein content in AJNT-4x. The nine glutelin subfamily genes were expressed at 5 days after flowering. With the development of the endosperm,the expression of each glutelin gene gradually increased,then gradually decreased and tended to stabilization. Different glutelin genes had different expression abundances at the same time;except the expression peaks of GluB-1 and GluB-4 were higher in H1 than those in AJNT-4x and AJNT-2x,the expression peaks of the other seven glutelin genes were much lower in H1 than those in AJNT-4x and AJNT-2x,and the difference was significant;the expression quantities of nine glutelin genes in AJNT-4x were all the highest in the three materials at 30 days after flowering. The above results provided a theoretical basis for high-quality breeding of rice polyploidy.

    The objectives of this study were to investigate the effects of nitrogen application rate on the grain yield,nitrogen accumulation and use efficiency of spring maize under different film mulching methods,and to provide a theoretical basis for efficient nitrogen application management of spring maize film mulching in high altitude area of Guizhou.Field trials were carried out from 2018 to 2019.The plots were arranged in a split-plot design.The main plots were assigned to the film mulching methods(wide film and narrow film) to be studied and divided into subplots according to the five nitrogen application levels(0,80,160,240 and 320 kg/ha).To study the effects of different film mulching methods and nitrogen application rates on yield,nitrogen accumulation,transport characteristics and utilization efficiency in different organs of spring maize.Film mulching,nitrogen application rate and their interaction significantly increased the yield of spring maize.The results showed that compared to narrow film mulching,wide film mulching not only increased the yield of spring maize by 17.8%,but also significantly enhanced the nitrogen accumulation and the retransfer of nitrogen accumulated before silking,then significantly increased the grain nitrogen accumulation.Moreover,compared to narrow film mulching,wide film mulching achieved significantly higher NUTE,NUPE,AEN,NPFP and NUE values showing increases of 4.9%,21.4%,23.5%,12.2% and 4.23 percentage points,respectively.Nitrogen application realized the synergistic growth of grain yield and plant nitrogen accumulation of spring maize,and could significantly affect nitrogen absorption,accumulation and transport.As the N application rate increased,the N translocation and the contribution rate of nitrogen transfer from vegetative parts to grain after silking could be effectively promoted,as well as enhanced.However,the nitrogen use efficiency,including the NDGPE,NHI,NUTE,NUPE,NUE,AEN,NPFP of spring maize,significantly decreased by increasing of N application rate.The regression analysis had shown that the optimal yield and nitrogen application rate for wide film mulching were reduced nitrogen application by 55 kg/ha and increased yield by 12.3% compared with narrow film mulching.The combination of wide film mulching and suitable nitrogen application rate was beneficial to the plant accumulation and absorption of nitrogen,so as to achieve high yield and nitrogen productivity,and then achieve the purpose of saving fertilizer and increasing yield.Considering the grain yield,N accumulation,transport and N use efficiency of spring maize,the reasonable N application rate of wide film mulching for spring maize in high altitude and other similar ecological zones in Guizhou was 160 kg/ha,which yield could reach 11 404.3 kg/ha.

    To determine the best method of fertilizer reduction,high yield and stable yield in the production area of cauliflower in Northwest Plateau.The Lihe Green stem 100 days cauliflower was used as material,six treatments were set as follows:the non-fertilization(CK1) and conventional fertilization(CK2) as control;chemical fertilizer reduction by 30% added balanced fertilizer(T1);chemical fertilizer reduction by 30% added balanced fertilizer and biological organic fertilizer 3 000(T2), 6 000(T3),12 000 kg/ha (T4).Compared with CK2 treatment,the economic yield of cauliflower decreased by 3.8%,and the utilization rate of phosphorus fertilizer increased from 3.7% to 11.4% in treatment T1;the economic yield of T2,T3 and T4 increased by 9.5%,11.3%,18.8%,respectively. Meanwhile,the accumulation of dry matter and nutrients,and the each element distribution proportion in flower ball were increased. Compared with CK2,T2,T3 and T4 treatments increased dry matter accumulation by 0.5%,8.3% and 7.2%,nitrogen accumulation by 9.1%,19.7% and 19.1%,phosphorus accumulation by 3.1%, 12.1% and 11.9%,and potassium accumulation by 2.4%,11.2% and 10.9%,respectively. Among them,T3 and T4 treatments were significantly different(P < 0.05). In addition,compared with CK2,chemical fertilizer reduction combined with biological organic fertilizer significantly increased the utilization rate of phosphorus and potassium fertilizer. The utilization rate of phosphate fertilizer increased from 3.7% to 26% and 25.9%,and that of potassium fertilizer increased from 43.5% to 73.4% and 72.9%,respectively.Chemical fertilizer reduction by 30% added appropriate amount of biological organic fertilizer could promote the absorption,accumulation and rational distribution of nutrients on cauliflower,improve the fertilizer utilization rate,and then increase the yield.

    In order to improve nitrogen utilization in facility farmland and reduce soil nitrogen accumulation,waxy corn and feeding sweet sorghum was selected as the catch crops,and six different levels of biochar were designed,namely C1(0),C2(0.5%),C3(1%),C4(2%),C5(4%),C6(8%),to study the effects of biochar application on nitrogen uptake by summer crop and soil carbon and nitrogen changes.The results showed that with the increase of biochar application rate,the nitrogen uptake of the two crops first increased and then decreased.Among them,the nitrogen uptake of the aboveground part of the waxy corn C3 treatment was the largest(142.69 kg/ha),feeding sweet sorghum was the best C4 treatment(132.43 kg/ha);the soil total nitrogen decreased by 2.5%-11.0% among different treatments,and the C3 treatment decreased by the most(15.4%),except for C6 treatment, the decrease range of other treatments for feeding sweet sorghum was 1.4% to 15.5%, and the decrease was the most in C3 treatment. After planting feeding sweet sorghum,different treatments and different soil layers had reduced nitrate nitrogen content compared with before planting;The C/N value of the facility soil could be increased by combining different amounts of biochar with catch crops;the application of biochar was beneficial to increase the organic carbon content,the planting of catch crops could reduce the soil urease activity in the early growth period of the subsequent crops,and reduce the nitrogen supply capacity of the subsequent crops during the growth period.With the increase of the application amount of biochar,the soil urease activity increased firstly and then decreased in each treatment.The highest urease activity was 3.33 mg/(g·d) in NC3(preceding waxy corn+C3) treatment after planting for 15 days.After planting for 45 days,the highest urease activity was in TC3(preceding sweet sorghum+C3) treatment,followed by TC2(preceding sweet sorghum+C2) treatment.The combination of biochar application and crop cultivation could increase the soil microbial biomass carbon content at the beginning of the subsequent crop,which was beneficial to the improvement of soil fertility.Under the conditions of this experiment,it was concluded that planting waxy corn with 1%-2% biochar application rate had a better effect on nitrogen absorption,and planting filling feeding sweet sorghum with 0.5%-2% biochar application rate had a better effect on nitrogen absorption,which was beneficial to reduce soil nitrogen accumulation.Planting feeding sweet sorghum has a better effect on reducing soil nitrogen movement than planting waxy corn.

    To investigate the effects of zeolite and Ca-Mg-based bentonite on the passivation of cadmium in calcareous soil in Northern China and the growth of pakchoi,a pot experiment was conducted to study the effects of two modifiers(mass fraction of zeolite was 0.5%,1.0%,2.0% and mass fraction of calcium-magnesium bentonite was 0.2%,0.3%,0.4%,0.5%,0.6%,0.8%)on pH value,available cadmium content of calcareous cadmium-contaminated soil in Northern China and cadmium content,dry matter accumulation and chlorophyll content of aboveground part of pakchoi.The results showed that compared with the control,adding different doses of zeolite could increase the soil pH value.With the increasing of zeolite application dose,the available cadmium content of soil,the aboveground cadmium content,the dry matter accumulation and chlorophyll content of pakchoi decreased gradually.The germination rate of pakchoi increased gradually,but the effects of zeolite treatments on the indexes determined in the experiment were not significant.The application of Ca-Mg-based bentonite significantly increased the soil pH value(0.70—1.07)and decreased the Cd content in the aboveground part of pakchoi(63.83%—93.62%).The aboveground dry matter accumulation(5.56%—29.22%)and chlorophyll content(5.42%—11.72%)of pakchoi increased,and the soil available cadmium content significantly decreased by a higher dose(≥0.4%).However,the germination rate of pakchoi decreased significantly and inhibited germination.The research showed that Ca-Mg-based bentonite was more suitable for the passivation of cadmium in calcareous soil in Northern China than zeolites.The content of available cadmium in calcareous soil and the content of cadmium in the aboveground part of pakchoi could reduce by applying Ca-Mg-based bentonite.However,the amount of application should be strictly controlled to avoid affecting the germination of pakchoi and reducing yield.The comprehensive analysis of quality and yield factors showed that the addition of 0.3% Ca-Mg-based bentonite could effectively reduce the aboveground cadmium content of pakchoi and increase the aboveground dry matter accumulation and chlorophyll content of pakchoi.

    In order to understand the differential gene mining and molecular regulation mechanism of abscisic acid metabolism of oil sunflower in response to drought stress, high-throughput transcriptome sequencing and physiological characteristics were measured on oil sunflower under normal water supply (CK) and drought stress (T) treatments. The results showed that the content of abscisic acid (ABA) was the highest at 8 d of drought stress, at 23.55 ng/mL, and higher than 0 d at 4,8 d of drought stress. The differentially expressed genes were screened and compared with CK on 8 and 16 days of drought stress, the number of differentially expressed genes in the treatment group was 940, 1 743, and the number of genes that were significantly down-regulated was 1 752, 3 037, respectively. According to the functional annotations of KEGG and GO, there were more gene types under drought stress at 16 d than at 8 d. Among them, the most involved biological processes, the second was involved in cell components, and the least involved in molecular functions. The main metabolic pathways annotated by KEGG were plant MAPK signal transduction pathway, plant hormone signal transduction, glycerophospholipid metabolism and so on. Analyzed the hormone-related genes under drought stress for 8 days. A total of 39 differentially expressed genes were found, and 7 genes were related to abscisic acid metabolism. The transcription factors involved in abscisic acid metabolism were ABF2, SAPK2, PP2C, AHG1, PYL2 and SAPK3 were up-regulated, and the expression level of drought stress was higher than that of CK. The conclusion of this study was that 7 different genes related to the up-regulation of ABA metabolism in oil sunflower under drought stress were discovered. The transcription factors involved in the metabolism of abscisic acid (PYR/PYL→PP2C→SnRK2→ABF) were all up-regulated, indicating that the plant when suffering from drought stress, it would resist drought stress by accumulating hormones such as abscisic acid.

    The transcription factor TCP (TEOSINTE BRANCHED1, CYCLOIDEA, and PCF) family has bHLH (basic-Helix-Loop-Helix) secondary domain. According to the different base sequences of binding sites, the TCP family was divided into two categories:Ι Class (GGNCCCAC) and II class (GTGGNCC). The transcription factor TCP4 is one of the II class members of plant-specific transcription factors. TCP4 regulates the growth and development of plants, affects the synthesis of a variety of plant hormones, and participates in the regulation of plant resistance. This article reviews the involvement of transcription factor TCP4 interacts with other plant transcription factor families in plant seed germination, epidermal hair differentiation, leaf morphology, flowering and other important plant growth and development processes.So plants adapt to the changing growth environment of the outside world. Plants will encounter various environments in the process of growth and development, resulting in stress. Under abiotic stress, transcription factor TCP4 combines with cis acting elements of functional genes to regulate its expression and regulate the synthesis of plant hormones, so as to participate in plant stress resistance. During plant development, TCP4 also has spatio-temporal limited expression patterns, which improve the possibility of TCP4 triggering or antagonizing hormone signal transduction locally. It provides a reference and theoretical basis for how transcription factor TCP4 regulates plant growth and development and accurately participates in plant hormone synthesis, and has important guiding significance for plant growth regulation and breeding of excellent varieties under stress.

    In 2015-2016 wheat growing season, Wankenmai 076 and Wanmai 52 were used at the Wanzhong Experiment Station of Anhui Agricultural University to study the effect of waterlogging after anthesis on the grain filling characteristics and yield of winter wheat. Four treatments, 0(W0), 3(W3), 6(W6), and 9(W9)days of waterlogging after anthesis, were established. The results showed that 14 days after flowering, no significant differences were observed in net photosynthetic rate, SPAD value, malondialdehyde(MDA)content and peroxidase(POD)activity in flag leaf between W0 and W3 treatments. Moreover, W6 and W9 treatments showed significant lower values than that of W0. However, superoxide dismutase(SOD)and catalase(CAT)activity of flag leaf were different in different varieties, SOD and CAT activities of flag leaf in Wankenmai 076 of W9 treatment were significantly lower than those of other treatments, SOD and CAT activity of flag leaf in Wanmai 52 of W3 and W6 treatment were significantly lower than those of W0 treatment, but higher than those of W9 treatment. In addition, W6 and W9 showed significantly lower average grain filling rate than W0 and W3 treatments, and different wheat varieties had different effects on the grain filling process under waterlogging conditions. There was no significant difference in spike number of wheat under waterlogging after anthesis. Moreover, there was no significant difference in grain number between W0 and W3 treatments, while W6 and W9 treatments were significantly lower than that of W0 in Wankenmai 076. However, the grain number and weight of W3, W6 and W9 in Wanmai 52 showed significantly lower values than those of W0 treatment, and W9 treatment was the lowest. The 1000-grain weight and yield of both varieties ranked as W0>W3>W6>W9. After 9 days of waterlogging, the yield of both varieties decreased by 34.99% and 40.44%. Under the conditions of this experiment, waterlogging during flowering period reduced the photosynthetic capacity of flag leaves of wheat, affected the grain filling process, reduced the average grain filling rate, and led to the decrease of 1000-grain weight, thus reducing the final yield.

    Field experiments were used to study the effects of green manure rape returning stages and different nitrogen application rates on yield of spring maize and soil nutrients,in order to provide a theoretical basis for higher using efficiency on less application of nitrogen on spring maize in Northern China Plains. The experiment adopted a split plot design. The stages of returning in the main plots were winter fallow field without returning (G0),initial flowering (G1),full blooming (G2),and pod (G3). The nitrogen application rates of split plots were as follows: 0(N0),135(N135),270(N270),405(N405) and 540 kg/ha (N540).During the maize harvest stage,the five-point sampling method was used to measure soil samples to determine the soil nutrients' contents of each plot,and the maize yields with constituent factors.The results showed that compared with G0 treatment,G2 treatment significantly increased the yield by 5.89%,while the G1 treatment significantly increased the yield by 6.37% in 2020,of which the increases of grain number per ear were 5.59% and 8.37%,respectively,but there were no significant effect on hundred-grain weight;the yield of G3 treatment reduced 8.43% due to decreases of the average 2.62% of grain number per ear and 6.40% of the average hundred-grain weight in 2020. The yield increased significantly with the increase of nitrogen application rates. Under the G1,G2 and G3 treatments, the yields of spring maize reached the hightest when nitrogen application rates were N405,N270 and N405 which were 10 961.21,11 253.34 and 10 331.12 kg/ha, respectively.The yields were higher than others with nitrogen application rates of N405 and N270 for 10 961.21,11 253.35 kg/a,respectively. Model analysis showed that the G1 and G2 treatments could ensure the yield was stable above 10 000 kg/ha,while the nitrogen fertilizer application could be reduced by 7.89%—41.45%. In 2020,the G3 treatment could reduce the nitrogen by 10.53% and the yield by 6.27%. Compared with G0 treatment,G1 and G2 treatments significantly increased the average of soil organic matter and alkaline nitrogen content by 8.28%,4.12%,11.17%,and 12.77%,respectively. Soil total nitrogen contents in G1,G2 and G3 treatments increased significantly by 6.01%,5.86% and 8.00% in 2019. Rape returning significantly decreased the soil total phosphorus and available phosphorus contents. There were no significant differences of total potassium content among treatments,while soil available potassium contents of G1 and G2 treatments were higher than G0 treatment,and G3 treatment significantly decreased for 3.41% than G0 treatment in 2020. Each soil nutrients' contents increased firstly and then decreased with the increase nitrogen application rates,the value with N270 was the highest. In summary,returning green manure rape to the field from the initial flowering to the full flowering period can increase the soil organic matter,total nitrogen,alkali-hydrolyzable nitrogen and available potassium content. With the nitrogen fertilizer application reduced by 7.89%—41.45%,the yield can also stable above 10 000 kg/ha,which achieve the goal of stabilizing the production of spring maize and reducing nitrogen and increasing efficiency in the North China Plain.

    In order to select rotation crops suitable for tomato in southeastern of Shanxi Province,we planted six cropsrotation patterns,namely maize(LVZm),zucchini(LVCp),peanut(LVAh),green onion(LVAf),okra(LVAe),and cucumber(LVCs),taking treatment with continuous tomato cultivation(LLLe,CK)as control. The changes in the microbial community structure and diversity in the ITS1 region of soil fungi were analyzed by Illumina Miseq high-throughput sequencing technology. At the same time,the quality indicators(soluble total sugar,organic acid content,sugar-acid ratio,Vc content,soluble protein,soluble solids,lycopene content,nitrate)and yield indicators(single fruit weight,yield)of the following tomatoes were measured. The results showed that Ascomycote was the dominant phyla in the 7 treatments,and the species and abundance were quite different,LVCs,LVZm,LVAh and LVAe increased the diversity index of fungal,while LVCp decreased the index. LVZm had better taste;LVAe and LLLe had the highest Vc content;no significant difference in soluble protein content;the content of soluble solids were the highest in LLLe and LVCp;the content of lycopene was highest in LVCp;LVAe had the highest nitrate content. The yields significantly increased in LVAe and LVCp patterns,and the quality of single fruit significantly increased in LVCp rotation. Principal component analysis(PCA)showed that the scores of quality and yield among different patterns from high to low were LVCp>LVAe>LLLe> LVAh>LVAf> LVZm>LVCs. In summary,crop rotation changes the soil fungal community structure,affects the index of the fungal,the quality and yield of tomatoes in subsequent crops. Based on various factors,zucchini and okra are the dominant rotation crops suitable for the growth of local tomatoes.

    In order to explore the effects of drought priming on antioxidant properties of wheat seedlings, control treatment and drought training treatment were set up in this experiment. PEG6000 nutrient solution was used for drought training when one heart and one leaf, and then Hoagland's total nutrient solution was restored. When three leaves are one heart, the drought stress is treated separately, and the dynamic changes of the substances related to the antioxidant properties in the young leaves were observed. The results showed that with the increase of drought degree and stress time, SOD, POD activity and soluble protein decreased, but MDA and soluble sugar content increased significantly. Compared with the control, the leaf SOD, POD activity and soluble protein decreased less after drought exercise, the soluble sugar content increased more, and the MDA increased less. Under the different drought stress, the antioxidative capacity of drought-stressed wheat under 25% PEG6000 stress was higher than that of 35% PEG6000. This showed that a certain concentration of drought training in wheat can significantly enhance its ability to adapt to drought conditions, which was beneficial to the growth of the seedling stage and provides theoretical support for the research on wheat resistance.

    In order to explore the effects of tea and soybean intercropping on tea quality and soil nutrients under different nitrogen rates. A pot experiment with four nitrogen rates(N0:0 g/kg, N1:0.25 g/kg, N2:0.50 g/kg and N3:1.00 g/kg)and two cropping patterns of tea and soybean intercropping and tea monocropping was conducted. The results showed that compared with monocropped tea, tea and soybean intercropping significantly improved the contents of free amino acids, caffeine and soluble sugar of tea, while decreased the content of tea polyphenols to advance the nutritional quality of tea. It also significantly increased the contents of total N, available N, available P, available K and organic matter, thus improving the fertility. In addition, the yield and quality of tea were not significantly reduced by 1/2 of nitrogen application rates(N1)in comparison to the monocropped tea with normal nitrogen application rates(N2)in the tea and soybean intercropping system, and also enhanced soil fertility. Correlation analysis indicated that the improvement of tea quality was closely related to the abundance and deficiency of soil nutrients. Under this experimental condition, tea and soybean intercropping system had the potential to maintain tea yield, quality and soil nutrients improvement under the treatment of reducing nitrogen application.

GO enrichment analysis showed that these differentially expressed genes were mainly enriched in the biological processes such as scavenger receptor activity, G protein-coupled receptor binding, T cell activation, regulation of secretion by cell, exocytosis and SNARE complex assembly. KEGG pathway analysis showed that these differentially expressed genes were mainly involved in signal pathways such as cytokine-cytokine receptor interaction, cAMP signal, cysteine and methionine metabolism, phospholipase D signaling and some diseases(African cone disease, cancer).The RT-qPCR results of 6 differentially expressed genes showed that the results of RNA-seq were accurate and reliable. Based on the results of screening, GO and KEGG of differentially expressed genes, TMSB15A and STAB2, SAA1 and HP were candidate genes for thymus innate immunity in Rongchang pigs and Landrace, respectively.

    To investigate the effects of different maize straw carbon addition on soil organic carbon and fertilizer improvement,it focused on an in-situ soil column incubation experiment was established on tobacco fields.Four treatments were set,including none straw addition(CK),conventional straw(RS),decomposed straw(DS)and straw biochar(BC).The organic carbon components and structure,soil physical and chemical properties,and enzyme activities of the 0-20 cm soil layer of tobacco field treaded by the four treatments were characterized and analyzed.One-year incubation results showed that:Compared with none straw addition,the three forms of straw carbon addition all significantly increased the content of total organic carbon(TOC)and microbial biomass carbon(MBC)in the soil.Compared with none straw addition,treatments of conventional straw and decomposed straw significantly increased soil dissolved organic carbon(DOC)content,while straw biochar treatment significantly increased particulate organic carbon(POC)content(42.40%).The three forms of straw carbon addition all significantly increased the microbial biomass carbon/total organic carbon ratio and promoted the turnover of soil organic carbon.The functional group structure of SOC was analyzed by 13C nuclear magnetic resonance.The results indicated that conventional straw and decomposed straw treatment increased the relative content of Alkoxy carbon(O-Alkyl-C)and Carbonyl carbon(Carbonyl-C)(labile carbon component),while straw biochar treatment increased Alkyl carbon(Alkyl-C)(recalcitrant carbon component),Alkyl carbon/Alkoxy carbon(A/OA)and Hydrophobic-C/Hydrophilic-C(Hydrophobic-C/Hydrophilic-C).Different forms of straw carbon had significantly different effects on soil nutrients and enzyme activities,straw biochar treatment significantly increased by 65.72%,19.93% and 5.77% for the content of available potassium(AK),ammonium nitrogen(AN)and nitrate nitrogen(NN),respectively.Conventional straw and straw biochar treatments significantly increased the activities of sucrase(Su)and urease(Ur).The three forms of straw carbon all had a significant effect on the activity of phosphatase(Ps).Redundancy analysis showed that C/N ratio(C/N),cellulase(Ce)and total nitrogen(TN)were the main factors affecting the organic carbon content,while cellulase,pH,and available potassium were the main factors affecting the organic carbon structure.Overall,the application of maize straw biochar had significant advantages in improving organic carbon content and stability,nutrient content,and enzyme activity in a short term.In the comprehensive soil fertility evaluation,straw biochar had the highest score with 0.57.Maize straw biochar was an effective measure to improve the organic carbon level and soil fertility in the tobacco planting soil.

    To investigate the effect and mechanism of different rotation systems on nitrate leaching,field experiments were carried out from 2018 to 2020 to compare the variation characteristics of nitrate leaching in greenhouse soil under three rotation systems,i.e.tomato-melon(TM),bean-melon(BM)and tomato-bean(TB),and to explore the controlling factors for differences in nitrate leaching.Results showed that the rotation with Vigna unguiculata significantly reduced the amount of nitrate leaching compared with the traditional TM rotation.The total nitrate leaching loss of TB was significantly decreased by 39.74% compared with TM,however,the nitrate leaching loss of BM were significantly decreased by 6.32%.Collectively,TB had the best environmental benefits among three rotations,which was the recommended rotation pattern.Spearman correlation analysis showed that the NO3-NO3--N leaching was most affected by 0—100 cm soil water storage,soil NO3--N accumulation and temperature,with a highly significant positive correlation.A positive correlation of NO3--N leaching with 0—100 cm organic carbon storage and soil total nitrogen accumulation,as well as a negative correlation with 0—60 cm soil pH value were also observed.Comparing with the traditional TM,the decreasing of nitrate leaching in recommended rotation pattern(TB)was mainly attributed to significant reduction of 0—100 cm soil water storage,soil NO3-N and total nitrogen accumulation,and significant increment of soil pH value to chang soil physical and chemical properties,together with alleviating the background nitrate leaching caused by organic nitrogen mineralization in sensitive leaching seasons.
