AB  - During the last 15 years in Serbia, there has been an invasion of H. annuus across the country.Plants were initially limited to non-cultivated areas near arable fields, while in recent years the species has started to occur and establish populations in crop fields, especially into wide-row crops. We tested eight herbicides in two greenhouse experiments: 1) a doseresponse study; 2) an efficacy study with reduced herbicide rates adding an adjuvant. The tested herbicides showed satisfactory weed control, where all estimated effective doses 90 (ED90) were lower than the recommended field rate for each herbicide, except for dicamba. The addition of non-ionic surfactants significantly increased the efficacy of glyphosate, mesotrione,rimsulfuron, and foramsulfuron. Whereas, there was no clear advantage to adding an adjuvant to bentazone and tembotrione, as the H. annuus population was already very sensitive (plants died in 1/8 of recommended rate in a dose-response study). All tested herbicides, except dicamba, can be used for satisfactory H. annuus control in maize, while glyphosate can be used for control of the species in non-agriculturallands.

AB  - Cover crops play an important role in low-input cropping systems, increasing the
use of agro-ecosystem services. Due to the lack of information about the impact
of cover crops and bio-fertilizers on popcorn maize (Zea mays everta Sturt.)
growth and yield quality, especially the popping volume and nutritive quality,
such as concentrations of protein and mineral elements, this research aimed to
provide essential information. The interrelation between popcorn maize
productivity and quality with important groups of soil microorganisms presents
additional novelty. The results demonstrated that field pea is a beneficial cover
crop, especially when combined with a bio-fertilizer, supporting the
accumulation of maize biomass, chlorophyll, yield potential, and the
concentrations of protein, Ca, Mg, Fe, and Zn. In addition, field pea residues
promoted N-fixing bacteria, and the number of total microorganisms, especially
actinomycetes and decomposing bacteria, which could promote nutrient uptake
and grain quality. Residues of cover crop mixtures, common vetch + winter oats
and field pea + winter oats, promoted the total number of microorganisms in the
soil, and up to the end of vegetation, a greater number of decomposition and
ammonification microorganisms were found, especially when the bio-fertilizer
was applied, which consequently could support greater maize biomass. Popping
volume, as a main trait of popcorn maize, had the highest value in the common
vetch + winter oats variant, supporting again the statement that quality traits
could be enhanced in sustainable production. Unlike living cover crops, mulch
mainly affected soil microbial communities and promoted the development of
actinomycetes and cellulolytic microorganisms during the growing season. The
results of this research could contribute to the development of sustainable
popcorn maize production for improved grain quality. They could also serve as
a basis for isolating beneficial soil microorganisms to develop new bio-fertilizers
that could improve maize production in synergy with cover crops

AB  - This work aimed to evaluate changes in phytic phosphorus content as the response of three
maize hybrids (ZP 457, ZP 5601, and ZP 606) to different pesticide treatments for European Corn
Borer (ECB) attacks and, as well as the correlation between damage caused by ECB attack and
Pphy content. In the experimental field, maize ears were sampled and dried at a moisture content
of 14% for the determination of changes in phytic phosphorus content in the grain. The content of phytic phosphorus was determined using UV / VIS spectrophotometry. Observed results showed the highest content of phytic phosphorus for untreated control for all tested hybrids, compared to pesticide treatments. The content of Pphy in the tested maize kernel samples ranged from 2.12 to 3.40 mg g -1. A significant positive correlation between attacks of larvae and Pphy content could indicate activation of its antioxidative function as a response to damage caused by ECB attack.

AB  - Modern agricultural production is faced with a progressive reduction of arable land, soil 
and water pollution, extreme fluctuations in meteorological conditions, a lack of fertilizers, as 
well as an enormous jump in their prices. The use of mineral fertilizers in the long term leads 
to depletion of the soil with micro-nutrients and a decrease in fertility and organic matter. 
Today, the need for the application of different sources of nutrients that would fully satisfy 
the needs of crops and have a favorable effect on soil fertility is growing. Manure is one of the 
most important fertilizers that affects soil fertility, but the lack of livestock determines its (una)
availability. Therefore, sustainable fertilization systems have been developed, such as green 
manures, mulch, compost and biochar, which have a favorable effect on the quality of the soil 
and the yield of cultivated plants, especially when used for many years. Bio-fertilizers consist 
of beneficial microorganisms and are a unique practice for improving soil fertility and crop 
yields. Individual microorganisms, as well as their consortia, can accelerate the decomposition 
of crop residues, increase the availability of macro- and micro-elements from the soil, and 
promote plant growth and fitness by synthesizing phytohormones and stimulators. It has been 
shown that organic and bio-fertilizers, especially with long-term application, can maintain 
and restore the fertility of eroded soils. Also, their use has a favorable effect on the growth 
and yield potential of cultivated plants, providing them with all the necessary macro- and 
micro-elements, as well as numerous other protective and stimulating substances.

most important fertilizers that affects soil fertility, but the lack of livestock determines its (una)
availability. Therefore, sustainable fertilization systems have been developed, such as green 
manures, mulch, compost and biochar, which have a favorable effect on the quality of the soil 
and the yield of cultivated plants, especially when used for many years. Bio-fertilizers consist 
of beneficial microorganisms and are a unique practice for improving soil fertility and crop 
yields. Individual microorganisms, as well as their consortia, can accelerate the decomposition 
of crop residues, increase the availability of macro- and micro-elements from the soil, and 
promote plant growth and fitness by synthesizing phytohormones and stimulators. It has been 
shown that organic and bio-fertilizers, especially with long-term application, can maintain 
and restore the fertility of eroded soils. Also, their use has a favorable effect on the growth 
and yield potential of cultivated plants, providing them with all the necessary macro- and 
micro-elements, as well as numerous other protective and stimulating substances.",

AB  - The maize cultivation trial was conducted at the Research and Experimental 
Field "Radmilovac" of the Faculty of Agriculture in Belgrade in 2022 on the 
soil type luvic chernozem in completely randomized blocks. The cropping 
system included tillage with a disk harrow at 25-30 cm with complete 
incorporation of winter wheat crop residues and tillage with a harrow before 
sowing. Basic fertilizer was applied in the fall at 500 kg ha-1 NPK (15:15:15). 
The following microbiological fertilizers were used for top dressing in spring: 
Biofertilizer ("Slavol", manufacturer "Agrounik" Serbia) with 5 l ha-1
in two 
treatments and Eko lame with 10 l ha-1
in 3 treatments. The top dressing in the 
control variant was done with nitrogen fertilizer AN at the rate of 60 kg ha-1 N. 
Maize varieties (ZPSC 666) were used. The maize was grown in a six crop 
rotation. Statistical analysis confirmed that top dressing had a greater effect on 
weediness of maize. The weed community in maize crops consisted of 15 weed 
species, with terophytes dominating: Stellaria media (L.) Vill., Veronica 
persica Poir. and Sonchus oleraceus (annual species) and Agropyrum repens
(L.) Beauv., Cirsium arvense (L.) Scop., Convolvulus arvensis L.and Sorghum 
halepense (L.) Pers. (perennial species). The obtained results show that the 
highest number of weeds, weeds per species, fresh and air-dry biomass were 
recorded in the control variant. The statistically lowest values for the number 
of weed plants per species and fresh biomass, as the most important parameters 
of weed infestation, were recorded in the treatment with Eko lame. The 
differences in weed population in the variants with microbiological fertilizers 
were not statistically significant, while there were statistically very significant 
differences compared to the control. The use of microbiological fertilizers 
affected the initial faster development of maize plants and increased 
competitiveness against weeds.

AB  - Weed control in corn is a major challenge due to increasing problems with highly dominant
weed species and herbicide resistance evolution. Common lambsquarters and johnsongrass
constitute up to 80% to 90% of the weed population in many spring crops, such as soybean
[Glycine max (L.) Merr.], sunflower (Helianthus annuus L.), and corn, in Serbia. Currently,
acetolactate synthase–inhibiting herbicides, such as the systemic selective sulfonylurea nicosul-
furon, are most commonly used for chemical weed control of those species. A better under-
standing of the impact of nozzle type and adjuvant use on nicosulfuron efficacy can help to
improve control of common lambsquarters and johnsongrass and minimize herbicide resis-
tance development. Field trials were conducted in Serbia from 2020 to 2022 to evaluate the
impact of two adjuvants (a non-ionic surfactant [NIS] and a mineral fertilizer ammonium sul-
fate [AMS]) and two nozzle types (drift-reducing nozzles and flat-fan nozzles) on common
lambsquarters and johnsongrass control using nicosulfuron. Satisfactory biomass reduction
of common lambsquarters (83% to 87%) and johnsongrass (83% to 97%) was achieved after
nicosulfuron application. Adding a NIS adjuvant increased the biomass reduction for common
lambsquarters (94% to 98%) and johnsongrass (90% to 100%) independently of the nozzle type
used. Selection of nozzle type did not show consistent effects on common lambsquarters and
johnsongrass control. Nicosulfuron efficacy was increased with NIS adjuvant for both nozzle
types compared to nicosulfuron solo for both species, and Extended Range (XR) TeeJet® nozzles
on average resulted in a higher efficacy for common lambsquarters compared to Turbo TeeJet ®
induction. Adding a mineral AMS adjuvant resulted in lower biomass reduction for both nozzle
types and weed species (65% to 78% and 61% to 91% for common lambsquarters and johnson-
grass, respectively). Corn grain yield was predominantly influenced by annual meteorological
conditions and adjuvant type added to nicosulfuron. This research suggests that addition of the
non-ionic adjuvant is an essential factor for successful control of common lambsquarters and
johnsongrass in corn and enables use of drift-reducing nozzles.

AB  - Natural allelopathic substances are products or metabolites of some plants, released into the environment, and they have
the potential to be used in sustainable agricultural management systems. A sustainable system includes the use of natural
resources for plant protection, diseases, pests, and weed control without the use of synthetic chemicals. Essential oils
(Eos) are well-known metabolites utilised in agriculture.
From previous studies, it was known that Eos have toxic effects on phytopathogens as well as an inhibitory effect on seed
germination. Less research has been done on the Eo's ability to reduce dormancy and boost germination. The study's
objective was to ascertain the significance of Eo's impact on alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.) seed dormancy.
The seed material of four different varieties of Medicago sativa was used for the experiment (Zaječarka, Banatska, K-28,
Novosadska). Two essential oils, lavender (Lavandula angustifolia Mill.) and mint (Mentha piperita L.) were applied to
seeds at four concentrations—1%, 0.5%, 0.2%, and 0.02%—along with water as a control. Lavender and mint essential
oils used in the experiment are commercial oils obtained from mint leaves and fresh lavender flowers by distillation.
Germination, dormant seeds and dead seeds were evaluated in a laboratory setting according to ISTA rules, in Petry dishes
on filter paper. A germination cabinet was the equipment for seed germination.
Results showed that the type of Eos had no discernible influence on germinated seeds, dormancy, and dead seeds. The oil
concentration was the most significant factor affecting physiological characteristics. Both oils in concentrations of -1%
and 0.5% inhibited seed germination 100%. The maximum germination at 91,66% was achieved with the Novosadska
variety using lavender oil at a concentration of 0.02%, while dormancy was reduced. Varieties Zaječarka and Banatska
had the highest level of dead and dormant seeds, when lavender and mint Eos were applied at a concentration of 0.2%.
This study showed that both Eos at a concentration of 0.02% had a stimulatory effect on seed germination and
simultaneously reduced seed dormancy, emphasizing their potential use for seed quality improvement in organic farming.
AB  - Prirodne alelopatske supstance su proizvodi ili metaboliti nekih biljaka, koje biljka otpušta u životnu sredinu, i imaju
potencijal da se koriste u upravljanju sistema održive poljoprivrede. Održiv sistem uključuje korišćenje prirodnih resursa
za zaštitu bilja, suzbijanje bolesti, štetočina i korova bez upotrebe sintetičkih hemikalija. Esencijalna ulja (Eu) su dobro
poznati metaboliti koji se koriste u poljoprivredi.
Iz ranijih istraživanja poznato je da Eu imaju toksično dejstvo na fitopatogene, kao i inhibitorno dejstvo na klijanje
semena. Manje istraživanja je rađeno o sposobnosti Eu da smanje mirovanje i povećaju klijavost semena. Cilj studije je
bio da se utvrdi značaj delovanja Eu na mirovanje (dormantnost) semena lucerke (Medicago sativa L.).
Za ogled korišćen je semenski materijal četiri sorte lucerke (Zaječarka, Banatska, K-28, Novosadska). Dva Eu, lavanda
(Lavandula angustifolia Mill.) i nana (Mentha piperita L.) primenjena su na semenu lucerke u četiri koncentracije — 1%,
0,5%, 0,2% i 0,02% — zajedno sa vodom kao kontrolom. Ulja nane i lavande korišćena u eksperimentu su komercijalna
ulja dobijena destilacijom listova nane i svežih cvetova lavande. Klijavost, dormantnost i mrtvo seme su procenjeni u
laboratorijskim uslovima prema ISTA pravilima, u petrijevim posudama na filter papiru. Klijanje je rađeno u komori za
klijanje.
Rezultati su pokazali da vrsta Eu nije imala vidljiv uticaj na klijanje semena, mirovanje i mrtvo seme. Koncentracija ulja
je bila najznačajniji faktor koji je uticao na fiziološke karakteristike. Oba ulja u koncentracijama od 1% i 0,5% su
inhibirala klijanje 100%. Maksimalna klijavost 91,66% je postignuta kod sorte Novosadska uz korišćenje ulja lavande u
koncentraciji 0,02%, dok se mirovanje smanjilo. Sorte Zaječarka i Banatska su imali najviši nivo mrtvog i dormantnog
semena, kada su tretirane uljem lavande i nane u koncentraciji od 0,2%.
Ova studija je pokazala da su oba Eu u koncentraciji od 0,02% imala stimulativni efekat na klijavost semena, i istovremeno
smanjila mirovanje semena, naglašavajući njihovu potencijalnu primenu za poboljšanje kvaliteta semena u organskoj
poljoprivredi.

poznati metaboliti koji se koriste u poljoprivredi.
Iz ranijih istraživanja poznato je da Eu imaju toksično dejstvo na fitopatogene, kao i inhibitorno dejstvo na klijanje
semena. Manje istraživanja je rađeno o sposobnosti Eu da smanje mirovanje i povećaju klijavost semena. Cilj studije je
bio da se utvrdi značaj delovanja Eu na mirovanje (dormantnost) semena lucerke (Medicago sativa L.).
Za ogled korišćen je semenski materijal četiri sorte lucerke (Zaječarka, Banatska, K-28, Novosadska). Dva Eu, lavanda
(Lavandula angustifolia Mill.) i nana (Mentha piperita L.) primenjena su na semenu lucerke u četiri koncentracije — 1%,
0,5%, 0,2% i 0,02% — zajedno sa vodom kao kontrolom. Ulja nane i lavande korišćena u eksperimentu su komercijalna
ulja dobijena destilacijom listova nane i svežih cvetova lavande. Klijavost, dormantnost i mrtvo seme su procenjeni u
laboratorijskim uslovima prema ISTA pravilima, u petrijevim posudama na filter papiru. Klijanje je rađeno u komori za
klijanje.
Rezultati su pokazali da vrsta Eu nije imala vidljiv uticaj na klijanje semena, mirovanje i mrtvo seme. Koncentracija ulja
je bila najznačajniji faktor koji je uticao na fiziološke karakteristike. Oba ulja u koncentracijama od 1% i 0,5% su
inhibirala klijanje 100%. Maksimalna klijavost 91,66% je postignuta kod sorte Novosadska uz korišćenje ulja lavande u
koncentraciji 0,02%, dok se mirovanje smanjilo. Sorte Zaječarka i Banatska su imali najviši nivo mrtvog i dormantnog
semena, kada su tretirane uljem lavande i nane u koncentraciji od 0,2%.
Ova studija je pokazala da su oba Eu u koncentraciji od 0,02% imala stimulativni efekat na klijavost semena, i istovremeno
smanjila mirovanje semena, naglašavajući njihovu potencijalnu primenu za poboljšanje kvaliteta semena u organskoj
poljoprivredi.",

AB  - Redroot (Amaranthus retroflexus L.) and smooth pigweed (A. hybridus L.) are troublesome weeds in row crops in 
Serbia. Both species are very competitive, hosts for pathogens and insects, produce pollen which is highly allergenic; 
and the most recent research reported herbicide resistance in some populations across Serbia. An integrated approach 
for the control of both Amaranthus species must be evaluated and presented in order to reduce their negative potential 
in agriculture. In this paper, 9 yr results on redroot pigweed and smooth pigweed weed control are presented. In three 
different experiments, weed density and biomass of redroot and smooth pigweed were recorded: a) Crop rotation, b) row 
spacing and time of herbicide application, c) influence of nozzles and adjuvants. The influence of crop rotation and PRE 
herbicide mixture, PRE and POST mixture, and impact of nozzles and adjuvants were evaluated. PRE herbicide mix of 
S-metolachlor and isoxaflutole influenced 98.1% and 100% efficacy in the maize (Zea mays L.) continuous and in maize 
rotated with winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.), respectively. The mixture of two herbicides, applied either in PRE or 
POST, resulted in 100% of control of both species. Finally, similar results were obtained for nicosulfuron application with 
extended range (XR) or turbo TeeJet induction (TTI) nozzles, and combined with nonionic surfactant (NIS) or ammonium 
sulphate (AMS) adjuvants. The novelty of obtained results indicates that only holistic approach based on different weed 
management practices can contribute to sustainable Amaranthus control.

AB  - Crop rotation is an essential part of IWM system proposed to be implemented in maize weed 
control. It is especially appropriate to be used in sustainable maize production in order to suppress weed abundance on ecological and low-pesticide way. In comparison to maize continuous cropping, which is not suggestible, two- and three-years crop rotation with legume crop 
is more efficient in weed biomass reduction, including basic herbicide application. The aim 
of the study was to investigate the efficacy of combined application of crop rotation and mixture of soil (PRE) herbicides on weed species distribution. A long-term field trial organized as split-plot experiment has started in 2009 with maize sown in all four fields at the Maize Research Institute, Belgrade, Serbia. The basic treatment was a rotation system: maize continuous cropping (MC), maize-winter wheat rotation (MW), maize-soybean - w. wheat (MSW) and maize - w. wheat - soybean rotation (MWS). A pre-emergence herbicide mixture of isoxaflutole and metolachlor (Merlin 750-WG+Dual Gold 960 EC) in recommended rates (105 g a.i. ha-1 + 672 g a.i. ha-1) was applied immediately after drilling with a CO2 backpack sprayer with a four nozzle boom, using extended range nozzles (XR11002-SS, Tee Jet Spraying Systems, Wheaton, IL, USA) calibrated to deliver a spray volume of 140 L ha-1 of solution at 275.8 kPa. Herbicides were not applied in the control plot. After twelve years and completion of four rotations, maize was present again in all fields in 2021. Weed infestation level was estimated six to seven weeks after the application of herbicides. Samples were drawn randomly by the one square meter and number of weed individuals (WI) and their biomass (WB) were calculated. The data were processed by ANOVA. Our results indicated that in comparison to 2009, WI were increased in 2021 in untreated control by 44.2% in MC, 23.6% in MW, 24.6% in MSW and 18.6% in MWS. On the other hand, in treated plots WI have increased only in MC, by 62.5% and lowered by 7.7% in MW, 29.4% in MSW and 60.0% in MWS. WB has been reduced in 2021 significantly on treated as well as untreated plots in all rotation systems. The highest reduction of WB was achieved in untreated control of MWS (42.6%) and treated plot in MC (45.6%). Conclusively, it was proved that even with basic herbicide treatment with soil herbicides crop rotation could be very effec tive in weed control. On the other hand, maize continuous cropping has to be avoided in order to reduce potentials for weed infestation.

AB  - Sustainability in agricultural systems is largely based on increasing biodiversity and reduc ing the input of agrochemicals. Weed species occurrence and distribution in fields is driven by 
anthropogenic factor and cropping measures applied for high yield achievement. In sustainable 
cropping systems with cultivation of specific maize varieties such as sweet maize, special at tention has been usually paid to weed control because these genotypes are additionally sen sitive to herbicides. Sweet maize is mainly consumed directly by humans and its cultivation is 
supposed to be conducted without chemical control of weeds, giving advantage to cover crops. 
Cover crops influence weed infestation level through competition for space, light, water, and 
minerals. The aim of the investigation was to identify the most effective species or mixtures of 
cover crops in weed control of sweet maize in the present agro-ecological conditions. The ex periment was conducted at the Maize Research Institute Zemun Polje, Belgrade, Serbia during 
2014-2016. Sweet maize was grown after different cover crops: V1-common vetch (Vicia sativa 
L.), V2-field pea (Pisum sativum L.), V3-winter oats (Avena sativa L.), V4-fodder kale (Brassica 
oleracea convar. acephala L.), V5-common vetch+oats and V6-field pea+oats, V7- straw and 
V8- bare soil as a control. The preceding crop was winter wheat and each treatment had three 
repetitions. Sowing of cover crops was done in autumn while incorporation by ploughing was 
performed in spring, one week before sweet maize sowing (hybrid ZP SC 421su)in a density of 
65.000 plants ha-1. Six weeks after sowing, the weed association composition was analysed 
by weed species, number of individuals, and biomass determination per m2. After that, weeds 
were removed by hand hoeing and herbicides were not applied. The 19 weed species were 
determined during the investigation while seven species were present in each year and made 
a base of association: Solanum nigrum L., Sorghum halepense (Pers.) L., Chenopodium album
L., C. hybridum L., Amaranthus retroflexus L., A. hybridusL. and A. albus L.. Number of weed 
species, weed individuals and their biomass were significantly affected by year, cover crop, and 
their interaction. The highest number of individuals was detected in 2016 which was favourable 
regarding sum and distribution of precipitation. V1, V2 and V3 were the most efficient cover 
crop treatments in weed control, with the lowest number of weed species and individuals. In 
average for three years, weed biomass was significantly reduced after cultivation of field pea, 
V2 (820.2 g m-2) and its mixture with oats, V6 (794.3 g m-2) in comparison to control, bare soil, 
V8 (1582.6 g m-2).

AB  - Višegodišnja istraživanja su imala za cilj da ukažu na značaj gajenja
kukuruza u tropoljnom plodoredu u odnosu na monokulturu, u pogledu smanjenja
brojnosti korova kao i formiranja veće lisne površine i prinosa zrna kukuruza.
Rezultati su pokazali da je smena useva u tropoljnom plodoredu K-P-S značajno
doprinela da brojnost korova u kukuruzu bude manja (za 51,19%), a lisna površina
i prinos zrna veći (za 13,98% i 45,87%) u odnosu na monokulturu kukuruza.
Razlike u brojnosti korova, lisnoj površini i prinosu zrna kukuruza između varijanti
sa punom količinom herbicida i polovinom od pune količine nisu bile značajne, što
ukazuje na prednosti kombinovane primene hemijskih i agrotehničkih mera za
poizvodnju kukuruza i smanjenje zagađenja agroekosistema.
AB  - Maize cultivation in a crop rotation, especcially when legumes are
incorporated, contribute to the high yield achievement and a reduction of weed
infestation. In such a crop rotation system, the lower rates of herbicides could be
applied in order to achive reduction of weed species distribution. The
investigations were aimed to underline the importance of crop rotation in
comparision to maize continuous cropping for weed distribution reduction and
increase of maize leaf area and grain yield.
The results of long-term investigation showed that crop rotation contibuted to
the significant decrease of weed number (51,19%) and increase of leaf area and
grain yield of maize (13,98% and 45,87%, respectively) in comparision to maize
continuous cropping. Differences in weed number, maize leaf area and grain yield
between herbicide treatments in the recommended and half of recomended rate
were not significant, underlining the importance and high efficiency of combined
application of cultural and chemical measures in maize cultivation and
agroecosystem prevention.

kukuruza u tropoljnom plodoredu u odnosu na monokulturu, u pogledu smanjenja
brojnosti korova kao i formiranja veće lisne površine i prinosa zrna kukuruza.
Rezultati su pokazali da je smena useva u tropoljnom plodoredu K-P-S značajno
doprinela da brojnost korova u kukuruzu bude manja (za 51,19%), a lisna površina
i prinos zrna veći (za 13,98% i 45,87%) u odnosu na monokulturu kukuruza.
Razlike u brojnosti korova, lisnoj površini i prinosu zrna kukuruza između varijanti
sa punom količinom herbicida i polovinom od pune količine nisu bile značajne, što
ukazuje na prednosti kombinovane primene hemijskih i agrotehničkih mera za
poizvodnju kukuruza i smanjenje zagađenja agroekosistema., Maize cultivation in a crop rotation, especcially when legumes are
incorporated, contribute to the high yield achievement and a reduction of weed
infestation. In such a crop rotation system, the lower rates of herbicides could be
applied in order to achive reduction of weed species distribution. The
investigations were aimed to underline the importance of crop rotation in
comparision to maize continuous cropping for weed distribution reduction and
increase of maize leaf area and grain yield.
The results of long-term investigation showed that crop rotation contibuted to
the significant decrease of weed number (51,19%) and increase of leaf area and
grain yield of maize (13,98% and 45,87%, respectively) in comparision to maize
continuous cropping. Differences in weed number, maize leaf area and grain yield
between herbicide treatments in the recommended and half of recomended rate
were not significant, underlining the importance and high efficiency of combined
application of cultural and chemical measures in maize cultivation and
agroecosystem prevention.",

AB  - Organic agriculture offers many benefits through the increased nutritional quality of produced crops, agro-ecosystem preservation, and climate change mitigation. The development of an efficient nutrient management strategy in low-input systems, such as organic agriculture, which supports soil fertility and essential nutrients absorption by crops, is continually exploring. Thus, a study with maize–spelt–soybean rotation during a 5-year period in organic production was established to evaluate the variability in soil organic matter (SOM) and the status of available elements: N, P, K, Ca, Mg, Fe, Cu, Mn, Zn, and Si from the soil, as well as grain yield (GY) and the content of protein, P, K, Ca, Mg, Fe, Cu, Mn, Zn, and Si concentration in the grain of spelt, maize, and soybean. Significant variations in mineral elements in the soil, GY, and grain composition were detected. Spelt achieved the highest average GY, while soybean grain was the richest in a majority of examined nutrients. The soil Ca content was important for GY, while the protein level in grain was generally tied to the Mn level in the soil. It was recognized that soil–crop crosstalk is an important strategy for macro- and micro-nutrients management in the soil and grain of organically produced spelt, maize, and soybean. While a reduction in the GY and protein concentration in grain was present over time, it was established that a low-input system under dry-farming conditions supports nutrient availability and accumulation in grain, under semi-arid agro-ecological conditions of central Serbia.

AB  - Crop rotation is a simple and effective part of an Integrated Weed Management (IWM) system. This approach makes it possible to rotate herbicides with different modes of action (MOA), avoiding or postponing herbicide resistance. Besides all the known advantages and benefits, it is still not widely used in maize production. In Serbia, about 30% of total maize production is a continuous cropping. The aim of this research was to test the benefits of growing maize in crop rotation with winter wheat compared with a continuous cropping, combined with pre-emergence herbicide application. Field trials started in 2009, and five maize-winter wheat rotations have been completed. Weeds were controlled with an herbicide mixture of isoxaflutole and S-metolachlor, applied at either the full label rate or half rate, while one plot was kept weed free (manually), and one was a control. Applying IWM decreased the fresh biomass of weeds and then density by 96% and 97%, respectively. In continuous maize, perennial weeds became dominant after the first rotation. Crop rotation significantly influenced maize productive parameters, decreasing the variation in leaf area index and grain yield, and increasing the magnitude of these parameters with the number of cycles. The biggest differences in the analyzed parameters were observed in 2015, 2017 and 2019, indicating many positive long - term henefits of crop rotation on maize leaf area index and grain yield.

AB  - Maize is an important staple crop and a significant source of various nutrients.
We aimed to determine the macronutrients, antioxidants, and essential
elements in maize genotypes (white, yellow, and red kernel) using three
different fertilizers, which could be used as a basis to increase the nutrient
density of maize. The fertilizer treatments used bio- and organic fertilizers as a
sustainable approach, urea, as a commonly used mineral fertilizer, and the
control (no fertilization). We evaluated the yield, concentration of
macronutrient (protein, oil, and starch), nonenzymatic antioxidants
(phenolics, yellow pigment, total glutathione (GSH), and phytic phosphorus),
and reduction capacity of the 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) radical, as
well as essential elements that are commonly deficient in the diet (Mg, Ca, Fe,
Mn, Zn, Cu, and S) and their relationships with phytic acid. The genotype
expressed the strongest effect on the variability of grain yield and the analyzed
grain constituents. The red-kernel hybrid showed the greatest accumulation of
protein, oil, phenolics, and essential elements (Ca, Fe, Cu, and S) than a yellow
and white hybrid, especially in the biofertilizer treatment. The yellow kernel had
the highest concentrations of yellow pigment, GSH, phytic phosphorous, Mg,
Mn, and Zn (19.61 µg g−1
, 1,134 nmol g−1
, 2.63 mg g−1
, 1,963 µg g−1
, 11.7 µg g−1
,
and 33.9 µg g−1
, respectively). The white kernel had a greater starch
concentration (2.5% higher than that in the red hybrid) and the potential
bioavailability of essential metals, particularly under no fertilization. This
supports the significance of white maize as a staple food in many traditional
diets across the world. Urea was important for the enhancement of the
antioxidant status (with 88.0% reduction capacity for the DPPH radical) and
increased potential Zn bioavailability in the maize kernels (13.3% higher than
that in the biofertilizer treatment). This study underlines the differences in the
yield potential and chemical composition of red, yellow, and white-kernel
maize and their importance as a necessary part of a sustainable human diet.
This information can help determine the most appropriate genotype based on
the antioxidants and/or essential elements targeted for kernel improvement.

AB  - Sowing density affects not only crop growth, but also grain filling, including grain dry-down. 
Maize hybrids with upper-standing leaves allow to be grown in higher densities, what could 
affect some traits during ripening. An experiment with six maize hybrids (ZP388, ZP5550, 
ZP5601, ZP6263, ZP6364, ZP707), grown at 59,523 (D1) and 89,286 plants ha-1
(D2), during 
2019 and 2020 was established. Maize cobs were sampled 15 days after pollination (DAP), 
according to 10 day time-schedule (five times), up to the harvesting. Fresh weight of grains, 
water percentage, as well as grain yield and shelling percentage at the end of vegetative cycle 
were determined. 
Gradual and significant increase in grain fresh weight was noticed at D1, while at D2 greater 
values were obtained between 15th and 25th day, as well as between 45th and 55th DAP. At D1, 
continual increase in grain weight was observable for all hybrids, except for ZP6364, where 
drop 45th55th day was observable. For ZP388, significantly higher values were noticeable at 
D1, at 55th DAP (31.83 g) and also at D2, 15th45th DAP (from 24.06 to 32.02 g), including 
steeper drop to the 55th day (24.39 g), in regard to other hybrids. Significant and continual 
decrease in water content were noticed in grains of all of examined hybrids at D2, while at 
D1trend was slowed 45th55th DAP, having the lowest values for ZP5550, ZP5601, and 
ZP6263. Significantly higher average grain yield achieved ZP6364 (10.05 and 11.35 t ha-1
, at 
D1 and D2, respectively), and D2, compared to D1 (>830 kg ha-1
). Similar trend was observable 
for shelling percentage with 0.71% greater value obtained at D2. ZP707 had the highest value, 
82.80% and 90.11% for D1 and D2, respectively. 
It could be concluded that, up to the 55th DAP, maize grain gained greater weight and retained 
higher water amounts at D1, while grain dry-down started from the 45th day and was greater at 
D2. This was followed with greater grain yield and shelling percentage. From this standpoint, 
ZP6263 expressed the best features, according to yield potential and grain dry-down.

AB  - Human health is dependent not just on diet, but mainly on quality of agricultural products as a 
part of diet. If crops were grown on poorly fertile soils, or they are exposed to severe stresses, 
lesser amount of mineral elements, particularly essential elements, such as zinc, copper, 
manganese, magnesium, calcium, iron, and even sulphur, will be absorbed and accumulated, 
resulting in their deficiency in diets and increased incidence of various chronic diseases. 
Together with naturally low soil fertility, climate change, intensive agriculture is one of the 
main contributors of soil depletion. Thus, various long-term strategies, which are sustainable 
for agricultural plants and soils, at the same time, must be developed. It is of particular 
importance to increase a level of organic matter, as a source of mineral nutrients from the soil. 
The application through soil, as well as via plant foliage of various complex and organic 
fertilizers, containing macro- and micro-elements, and many stimulating compounds, enables 
better absorption and metabolisation of nutrients required for plants and nutrients essential for 
humans. Besides, bio-fertilizers, containing beneficial microorganisms have an important role 
in nutrients mobilization in soils, particularly from poorly accessible forms. Many bio fertilizers contain microorganisms that are able to absorb atmospheric nitrogen, thus enriching 
soil, delivering it to the plants, enabling reduction in amount and costs of nitrogen addition 
into the soil. Promoting microorganisms are also able to enhance plants ability to absorb 
water and nutrients by their synergy with roots, resulting in stable and better growth 
performances of agricultural plants, thus increasing yield and its quality. Some other cropping 
practices, such as crop rotation, intercropping and use of cover crops, enriches soil with 
organic matter, reduces losses of nutrients through recycling of harvest residues, therefore 
increasing soil fertility, as well as quantity and quality of crop yield, at the same time.

AB  - Sweet maize has worldwide importance due to its high nutritional value and health benefits. In order to provide valuable health-related information to consumers, the phytochemicals profile of raw sweet maize kernels and those exposed to different treatments (cooking, frozen storage before cooking, sucrose addition during cooking, and blanching) was examined herein. Thus, carotenoids, tocopherols and free phenolic acids content was determined by liquid chromatography, while the content of water soluble sugars was analyzed by anion exchange chromatography. In response to immediate cooking, as well as, to blanching prior to shorter frozen storage and cooking afterwards, all hybrids exhibited a significant decrease in carotenoids, and a significant increase in concentration of tocopherols, fructose, glucose, protocatechuic, ferulic and p-coumaric acids, in comparison to the fresh samples. However, treatments with blanching prior to longer frozen storage and cooking afterwards, contributed only to increased tocopherols content. Distinct grouping of processed samples in comparison to their corresponding control samples, revealed the existence of unique linkage between changes in phytochemicals content upon treatment in a hybrid-dependent manner. Combined blanching prior to shorter frozen storage with sucrose addition during cooking is highly recommended as a potent tool for phytochemicals enhancement.

AB  - Organic products of winter wheat are believed to be more nutritious and safer
foods compared to the conventional alternatives by consumers, despite the
higher price of these products. The experiment with organic technology of
winter wheat was conducted at the research and study field "Radmilovac",
Faculty of Agriculture Belgrade in 2016/17 and 2017/18 year on the luvic
chernozem soil type. Organic cropping system included tillage with a disc
harrow at 20 cm with the complete maize crop residues incorporation and the
pre-sowing tillage with a harrow. The basic fertilization was conducted in
autumn with 3.000 kg ha-1 biohumus (commercial name „Biohumus Royal
offert“, producer „Altamed“ Serbia) and top dressing in spring with 5.0 l ha-1
biofertilizer („Slavol“, producer „Agrounik“ Serbia). The common (cv. 'NS
40S') and durum (cv. 'Dolap') winter wheat cultivars were used, both developed
and adapted for organic growing system. It was important to underline that
organic cropping system, after 17 years of experiment (from the beginning of
the establishment of the organic four-field crop rotation until 2017/18)
increased soil organic matter, due to the application of organic fertilizer in
combination with other practices as a part of this system (application of biofertilizers,
incorporation of crop residues, etc.). Statistical analysis confirmed
that year and genotype have greater impact on wheat productivity than their
interactions. More favorable meteorological conditions in the first year led to
obtaining significantly higher grain yields (4.84 and 4.45 kg ha-1) and a greater
1000-grain weight (41.6 and 40.2 g). There were also significant differences in
the productivity of the studied wheat cultivars. The grain yield of common soft
wheat (4.34 kg ha-1) was significantly higher than that of durum wheat (3.050
kg ha-1). The inclusion of high yielding genotypes, with enhanced utilization
efficiency into low-input technology based on careful choice of cultural
practices, could be the important step in organic farming systems.

AB  - Tillage methods and intensity can be used as means of improving macronutrient and trace element concentration in soil and crops. A two-year field experiment was conducted to examine the impact of two cropping systems—intensive (ICS) and conservation (CCS), on the macro- and microelements in the soil and their accumulation in the grain of two cultivars of winter wheat. The experiment was conducted in a randomized complete block design with three replications of each tillage treatment. The results showed that the content of available N (0.7 kg ha−1) and organic matter (0.04%) slightly increased in CCS compared to ICS. The concentrations of Ca, K, and S macroelements and microelements such asBa, Cr, Hg, and Sr in the soil were significantly higher in CCS than in ICS. Higher concentrations of macroelements K and P, microelements such asFe, Zn, and As, and the greater value of the bioaccumulation factor for elements essential to humans such as P, Cu, Fe, and Zn, were also found in CCS compared to ICS. On the other hand, wheat cultivars grown in ICS were more efficient at accumulating macroelements and some trace elements than ones grown in CCS. While it is not without challenges, the conservation cropping system could represent an important part of the long-term strategy to sustainably improve soil fertility and the nutritional quality of the wheat grain.

AB  - During last years, the total losses from European corn borer (Ostrinia nubilalis Hbn.) can reach
a high threshold of harmfulness although the different agro-technical measures that are being
implemented. According to the sensitivity of hybrids, the damage may vary from only a few
percent in tolerant hybrids, up to 30-40% on moderately intolerant hybrids. The aim of this
study was to evaluate the variability and bioresponsiveness of four maize genotypes (ZP 427,
ZP 434, ZP 600 and ZP 666) to applied insecticides and bioinsecticides and the
interdependence of population dynamics. The research has been conducted in 2016 and 2018
in accordance with the EPPO method in field conditions in maize crops. Out of a total of 11.023
attacks in both years of research, in 2016. the largest number of plants (4.841) were with a
broken stalk above the ear and at the height of the ear and belonged to categories C3 to C8. In
2018. 3.672 plants were dominated by leaf damage and perforation in the stalk type H2.
Analyzing the effectiveness of the tested insecticides and bioinsecticides by application times,
an uniformity in the number of plants with recorded symptoms of damage was observed. Thus,
foliar treatment with chlorantraniliprole insecticide proved to be the most effective with the
least number of attacked plants with a high degree of damage. In contrast, bioinsecticide
treatment of plants, in addition to a large number of infested plants, was dominated by high
categories of damage that deviated from all other treatments as well as from the control. Within
the definition of the degree of tolerance of maize hybrids, the influence of treatment on changes
in secondary metabolites (phytins) in seeds was observed. It was noticed that there is a trend
of positive correlation of the amount of phytin in the seed (mg/g) with the attack of moths of
the first generation and the number of dissected larvae, as well as a trend of negative correlation
with the percentage of attacks of moths of the second generation. Correlation coefficients are
expressed: in the genotype ZP-600, while in the genotype ZP-666 the correlation is the lowest,
ie. irrelevant. The obtained results may be of great importance in future work aimed at the
selection of tolerant genotypes to attack corn flame, taking into account the role of phytin, as
an antioxidant and phosphorus depot in maize grain.

AB  - Plants reconfigure their metabolic pathways to cope with water deficit. The aim of this study was to determine the status of the physiological parameters and the content of phenolic acids in the upper most ear leaf of maize inbred lines contrasting in drought tolerance in terms of improved plant productivity e.g., increased grain yield. The experiment was conducted under irrigation and rain-fed conditions. In drought-tolerant lines, the effect of water deficit was reflected through a chlorophyll and nitrogen balance index increase followed by a flavonols index decrease. The opposite trend was noticed in drought susceptible inbreds, with the exception of the anthocyanins index. Moreover, in comparison to irrigation treatment, opposite trends in the correlations between grain yield and physiological parameters found under water deficit conditions indicated the activation of different metabolic pathways in defense against water deficit stress. Concerning phenolic acid content, water deficit caused the reduction of protocatechuic, caffeic, and sinapic acid in all inbreds evaluated. However, the highly pronounced increase of ferulic and especially cinnamic acid content under water deficit conditions indicated possible crucial role of these secondary metabolites in preventing the harmful effects of water deficit stress, which, in turn, might be useful in maize breeding selection for drought tolerance

AB  - Maize monoculture is still present worldwide. It is an adverse practice, with
high input of agro-chemicals and weed and pathogens infestation. At the
Maize Research Institute, a trial with maize monoculture has started in 1972
and from then it has been progressed into a system designed to maintain soil
fertility, improve grain yield and quality. Experiment (period 2013-2018,
hybrid ZP 427) comprised: treatment with farmyard manure (M -
incorporation of 60 t ha-1 in 2011, 2014, and 2017) and no manure
application (MØ); bio-fertilizer Bioplug (accelerating decomposition of crop
residues) applied at: 5 l ha-1 (BF), 2.5 l ha-1 (1/2BF) and without it (BFØ);
mineral fertilization with N:P:K= 15:15:15 (1709 kg ha-1) in autumn + Urea
(320 kg ha-1), in spring (F1); only Urea (237 kg ha-1) in spring (F2) and no
mineral fertilizers (F3). Measurements included: soil organic matter (OM),
grain yield (after harvest), as well as the content of protein, P, Mg, Ca, Fe
and Zn in grain. Higher soil OM was present in M, F1, and F2 treatments,
particularly in combination with 1/2BF (> 5%, averagely). Greater grain
yield followed the increased level of fertilization: M, BF, and F2 (8.85, 9.17,
and 9.05 t ha-1, respectively, on average). The average protein level, and the
content of mineral nutrients were higher in the S variant, while content of the
protein, P, Mg, and Fe had greater values in the 1/2BF treatment and Ca and
Zn had greater values in BF. Moreover, F1 had positive impact on protein, P,
Ca, and Mg content, while F2 increased the content of Fe and Zn. Results
indicate that proper fertilizer combination: farmyard manure, bio-, and
mineral fertilizer maintained not just soil fertility, but contributed to the
higher grain yield and grain quality, by enhancing the level of protein and
mineral nutrients, even in monoculture, as an adverse practice.
