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  - 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  - 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  - 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  - 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  - 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  - 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  - Seed deterioration is expressed as the loss of viability, vigour and quality during ageing The
major causes of seed deterioration refer to free radical-mediated lipid peroxidation, enzyme
inactivation or protein degradation, disruption of cellular membranes and damage to genetic
integrity Accelerated ageing (AA) is a simple method for studying the mechanisms of deterio-
ration over short periods In order to estimate the deterioration rate, seeds of four maize geno-
types were exposed to accelerated ageing for different time points (three and six days of AA) In
parallel, the same genotypes were evaluated regarding the content of total phenolics, phenolic
acids, flavonoids and anthocyanins, as well as regarding total antioxidant capacity Compared
to non-stressed seeds, ageing was evidenced by decreased germination energy (48 9%), a total
number of seedlings (40 8%) and seedlings growth (70 0% for root length, 44 0% and 10 5% for
root and shoot fresh weight, 5 0% for seed rest fresh weight, 12 0% and 11 5% for root and shoot
dry weight, 15 3% for seed rest dry weight, respectively), as well as by an increased number of
abnormal seedlings (22 0%) Correlation analysis revealed that higher content of total phenolics,
flavonoids and anthocyanins contributed to a higher radical scavenging activity, which was re-
flected through a lower level of deterioration rate, both regarding the energy of germination and
overall seedling performance.

semena u kratkom vremenskom periodu Za procenu stepena propadanja, seme četiri genotipa
kukuruza je izloženo tretmanu ubrzanog starenja u trajanju od tri i šest dana Uporedo sa ovim,
kod istih genotipova je ispitivan sadržaj ukupnih fenola, fenolnih kiselina, flavonoida i antoci-
jana, kao i ukupni antioksidativni kapacitet Poređenjem sa nestresiranim semenom (kontrola),
starenje je rezultiralo padom energije klijavosti (48,9%), smanjenjem ukupnog broja klijanaca
(40,8%), smanjenjem rasta klijanaca (70,0% za dužinu korena, 44,0% i 10,5% za svežu masu ko-

klijanaca (22,0%) Korelacionom analizom je utvrđeno da je povećani sadržaj ukupnih fenola,
flavonoida i antocijana doprineo većoj sposobnosti gušenja slobodnih radikala, reflektujući se
kroz smanjen stepen propadanja semena, kako u pogledu energije klijavosti, tako i u pogledu
ukupne performanse klijanca.

ration over short periods In order to estimate the deterioration rate, seeds of four maize geno-
types were exposed to accelerated ageing for different time points (three and six days of AA) In
parallel, the same genotypes were evaluated regarding the content of total phenolics, phenolic
acids, flavonoids and anthocyanins, as well as regarding total antioxidant capacity Compared
to non-stressed seeds, ageing was evidenced by decreased germination energy (48 9%), a total
number of seedlings (40 8%) and seedlings growth (70 0% for root length, 44 0% and 10 5% for
root and shoot fresh weight, 5 0% for seed rest fresh weight, 12 0% and 11 5% for root and shoot
dry weight, 15 3% for seed rest dry weight, respectively), as well as by an increased number of
abnormal seedlings (22 0%) Correlation analysis revealed that higher content of total phenolics,
flavonoids and anthocyanins contributed to a higher radical scavenging activity, which was re-
flected through a lower level of deterioration rate, both regarding the energy of germination and
overall seedling performance., Propadanje semena se ogleda u gubitku životne sposobnosti, energije i kvaliteta Dejstvo slo-
bodnih radikala dovodi do peroksidacije lipida, inaktivacije enzima, degradacije proteina, raza-
ranja ćelijskih membrana i oštećenja genetičkog materijala, i smatra se glavnim uzrokom propa-
danja semena Ubrzano starenje, kao metod, omogućava proučavanje mehanizama propadanja
semena u kratkom vremenskom periodu Za procenu stepena propadanja, seme četiri genotipa
kukuruza je izloženo tretmanu ubrzanog starenja u trajanju od tri i šest dana Uporedo sa ovim,
kod istih genotipova je ispitivan sadržaj ukupnih fenola, fenolnih kiselina, flavonoida i antoci-
jana, kao i ukupni antioksidativni kapacitet Poređenjem sa nestresiranim semenom (kontrola),
starenje je rezultiralo padom energije klijavosti (48,9%), smanjenjem ukupnog broja klijanaca
(40,8%), smanjenjem rasta klijanaca (70,0% za dužinu korena, 44,0% i 10,5% za svežu masu ko-
rena i izdanka, 5,0% za svežu masu semenog ostatka, 12 0% i 11 5% za suvu masu korena i iz -
danka, 15 3% za suvu masu semenog ostatka, respektivno), kao i povećanjem broja nenormalnih
klijanaca (22,0%) Korelacionom analizom je utvrđeno da je povećani sadržaj ukupnih fenola,
flavonoida i antocijana doprineo većoj sposobnosti gušenja slobodnih radikala, reflektujući se
kroz smanjen stepen propadanja semena, kako u pogledu energije klijavosti, tako i u pogledu
ukupne performanse klijanca.",

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  - Agricultural plants, mainly for food production are prone to variability of agro-ecolog ical conditions, particularly to meteorological conditions.Relatively frequent meteo rological extremes are reflecting negatively on agro-ecosystem, depleting soil fertility and 
raising its erosion, spreading invasive weeds, hard to control, thus reducing rapidly arable 
areas. At the same time, meteorological extremes are diminishing production of agricultural 
plants, their yields, as well as quality, reflecting negative on food security. It is well known 
that reduced yields of staple crops, like wheat, maize, rice and others are present in drier 
seasons, while increased concentration of protein, some vitamins and antioxidants is pres ent at the same time. However, in the most of the cases higher infestation with pathogenic 
fungus is present, thus increasing mycotoxines level. Meteorological extremes are mainly 
driven by anthropogenic factors, which are also responsible for reduced quality of agri cultural products. For example, globalisation trends mirrored through “Green revolution” 
were conceptualised to resolve worldwide hunger, by introducing of high yield genotypes, 
prone to stressful conditions, together with high inputs of water, mineral fertilizers (mainly 
based on nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium) and other toxic agro-chemicals, impairing 
agro-ecosystem by reduction of biodiversity, depleting of soil fertility through decrease of 
organic matter, microbiome diversity and particularly micro-elements, important for both, 
plants and humans, thus contributing to the low quality of produced food, i.e. hidden mal nutrition. Worldwide present malnutrition with essential minerals and vitamins contrib utes to the rapid increase of chronic diseases, such as inflammation, metabolic syndrome, 
diabetes, cardio-vascular diseases, cancer, variety of auto-immune conditions, etc. even to 
the pandemic level.One of the important facts lies in depletion of phosphorus deposits, 
leaving agriculture without the main source of this essential mineral. Novel trends that in troduce recycling, usage of alternative, renewable and less used sources of plant nutrients 
and energy, from the point of rationalisation, together with breeding of genotypes tolerant 
to various abiotic and biotic stressors, such as meteorological extremes, plant pathogens and 
low inputs could contribute not just to increased security of plant production, but also to

AB  - Maize kernel is an important source of mineral elements in human nutrition. Differences in
mineral content in maize kernel depend on genotype, cropping systems, fertilization, and
meteorological conditions. The objective of this study was to examine the impact of different
fertilization systems (mineral fertilizer – urea, organic fertilizer – Fertor, biofertilizer – Team
micoriza plus, control – without fertilization) on kernel yield and variations in content of P, S,
Ca, Mg, and Fe in kernel of white, yellow and red maize, during 2017 and 2018.
Meteorological conditions indicated dry period during June–August 2017, while in 2018
precipitations were equally distributed. Therefore, the average yield was almost double lower
in 2017 (to 4.6 t ha-1), compared to 2018, while higher average concentration of Ca, Mg, S,
and Fe in maize kernels was recorded in 2017. With higher average yield, red maize kernel
was richer in Ca, Fe, and P. Organic fertilizer increased average yield, and accumulation of
Mg, P, and S in kernels. In regard to combinations, application of organic fertilizer in red
maize resulted in increase of yield, Mg and P, while the biofertilizer increased Ca and urea
increased Fe concentration in kernel. S concentration achieved the highest value in the
control in yellow maize kernel. The greatest variations of kernel yield were in yellow maize
(treatment with the organic fertilizer and control) and in red maize with the urea treatment,
while the greatest variability of P, S, Mg, and Fe concentration was in red maize kernel
(treatment with the bio- and organic fertilizer), as well as yellow maize kernel in the control.
Presented results indicated that adjustments in growing conditions could impact accumulation
of important minerals in kernel, particularly in red maize, which could be considered as a
significant source of P, CA, Mg, and Fe, while yellow maize kernel could be referred as a
significant source of S.

AB  - Industrialization of agriculture, as the main food source, resolved the problem 
of food quantity, but other problems, present in environment degradation and 
hidden malnutrition (deficiency in essential minerals and vitamins) were 
upraised. The situation is aggravating when climate change was taken into

AB  - The aim of the study was to investigate the variations in accumulation of dry substance and water in 
maize and weeds, induced by two herbicide types (applied pre- and post-emergence). Weeds tend to 
captivate higher energy amounts than crop plants. Greater free energy of water indicated increased 
energy consumption for non-spontaneous processes in weeds. Relatively unchanged net heat of 
combustion of maize and lower net heat of combustion of weeds indicated herbicide ability to reduce 
energy accumulation by weeds and to remain it constant in maize plants.

AB  - Drift is the movement of plant protection product droplets through the air and can affect any 
non-target organism or the environment. In fact, there are three possible scenarios that can be 
considered as an off-target movement: particle drift, volatility, and contamination of the spray 
tank. Significant damages that can occur as a consequence of drift are damages to neighbouring 
crops, environmental pollution, lower level of efficiency of the applied herbicide. Meanwhile, in 
the case of tank contamination, injuries can occur only in the treated field. In order to examine 
the negative consequences of nicosulfuron drift, four crops were grown in a greenhouse and 
treated with low doses of herbicide, after which they were returned to cultivation. After 21 days, 
the effects of applied treatments were assessed through visual assessment of injury, dry weight, 
leaf height, and leaf area. Based on the obtained results, it can be concluded that low doses of 
nicosulfuron expressed different effects on the tested plants and that it is necessary to take 
precautionary measures to prevent herbicides from spreading to neighbouring plants.

AB  - Johnsongrass is one of the most troublesome weed species to control, since it 
belongs to the same family as maize. The sulfonylureas have been the first 
selective herbicides for Johnsongrass control in maize. Non-proper use of 
sulfonylureas had led to herbicide resistance development, and weed control 
failures. However, an optimization of herbicide performance through 
different adjuvants and spraying nozzles application can improve 
Johnsongrass control. Adjuvants are able to change physico-chemical 
properties of herbicide solution, while nozzles influence coverage rate and 
potential drift. A field trial regarding the influence of adjuvants and nozzles 
on Johnsongrass control started 2020 at the experimental field of the Maize 
Research Institute “Zemun Polje”. Nicosulfuron (OD formulation) was 
applied at 5-6-leaf stage, tank-mixed with NIS (non-ionic surfactant) or 
AMS (ammonium-sulphate) using XR11002 or TTI11002 nozzles. 
Sprayings were done when maize developed 5-6 leaves (15-16 BBCH) using 
CO2 backpack sprayer calibrated to deliver a spray volume of 140 l ha-1
of 
solution at 275.8 kPa. Following applications, weed density and biomass 
were evaluated on the 28th day. After harvest, maize grain yield was 
measured. According to obtained data, the highest Johnsongrass suppression 
was obtained using XN nozzle when nicosulfuron was tank-mixed with NIS 
adjuvant. Spraying with XR nozzle provided 96.3% of the biomass reduction 
compared to the untreated check, while spaying with TTI nozzle provided 
87.5% of biomass reduction. Addition of AMS as adjuvant reduced to 70% 
of biomass, as it was noticed in the treatment without adjuvant. 
Consequently, the highest grain yield of 12.3 t ha-1 was recorded when 
nicosulfuron was tank-mixed with NIS adjuvant and sprayed with XR 
nozzle, while the yield of 11.7 t ha-1 was recorded when the TTI nozzle was 
used. The lowest yield, ranging from 10.6 to 11.4 t ha-1
, was recorded in 
treatments without adjuvants.

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 (Zea mays L.) 
production. In Serbia, about 20% 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 (Triticum vulgare L.) 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 a herbicide mixture of isoxa flutole 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. Integrating crop rotation and PRE herbicides decreased the biomass of weeds 
and their density by 98% and 99%, 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, increasing values with the number of cycles. The biggest differences in the 
analyzed parameters were observed in 2015, 2017 and 2019, indicating many positive long-term benefits of crop 
rotation on maize leaf area index and grain yield.

AB  - Tokom poslednjih nekoliko dekada postalo je evidentno da različiti načini industrijalizacije i intenzifikacije polјoprivredne proizvodnje negativno utiču na životnu sredinu. Sada u 21. veku uočavamo posledice dugogodišnje upotrebe pesticida, intenzivne obrade zemlјišta uz povećanje površina koje ostaju neobrađene zbog uprošćavanja plodoreda, veće upotrebe fosilnih goriva, specifikacije sistema gajenja i dr. Zbog navedenog, polјoprivreda je uzročnik ali takođe trpi posledice klimatskih- promena, zagađenja zemlјišta i voda i smanjenja biodiverziteta. Zbog toga su potrebe za gajenjem useva u održivim sistemima proizvodnje koji su jednako produktivni, sve veće. Održiva polјoprivreda podrazumeva gajenje useva uz manju upotrebu herbicida i davanje prednosti drugim merama - fizičkim, biološkim i ekološkim. Takođe, u održivoj polјoprivredi su ulaganja kontrolisana, određena potrebama useva, zajedno sa održavanjem sadržaja azota i organske materije u zemlјištu. Tako, plodoredi i gajenje pokrovnih i združenih useva kao i gajenje u organskoj proizvodnji, doprinosi produktivnosti kukuruza i smanjenju zakorovlјenosti, kao i ostvarenju prinosa pobolјšanog kvaliteta što je značajno za ishranu i zdravlјe lјudi i životinja.
U radu će se analizirati doprinos održivih sistema gajenja kukuruza kvalitetu prinosa i očuvanju biodiverziteta.

abstract = "Tokom poslednjih nekoliko dekada postalo je evidentno da različiti načini industrijalizacije i intenzifikacije polјoprivredne proizvodnje negativno utiču na životnu sredinu. Sada u 21. veku uočavamo posledice dugogodišnje upotrebe pesticida, intenzivne obrade zemlјišta uz povećanje površina koje ostaju neobrađene zbog uprošćavanja plodoreda, veće upotrebe fosilnih goriva, specifikacije sistema gajenja i dr. Zbog navedenog, polјoprivreda je uzročnik ali takođe trpi posledice klimatskih- promena, zagađenja zemlјišta i voda i smanjenja biodiverziteta. Zbog toga su potrebe za gajenjem useva u održivim sistemima proizvodnje koji su jednako produktivni, sve veće. Održiva polјoprivreda podrazumeva gajenje useva uz manju upotrebu herbicida i davanje prednosti drugim merama - fizičkim, biološkim i ekološkim. Takođe, u održivoj polјoprivredi su ulaganja kontrolisana, određena potrebama useva, zajedno sa održavanjem sadržaja azota i organske materije u zemlјištu. Tako, plodoredi i gajenje pokrovnih i združenih useva kao i gajenje u organskoj proizvodnji, doprinosi produktivnosti kukuruza i smanjenju zakorovlјenosti, kao i ostvarenju prinosa pobolјšanog kvaliteta što je značajno za ishranu i zdravlјe lјudi i životinja.
U radu će se analizirati doprinos održivih sistema gajenja kukuruza kvalitetu prinosa i očuvanju biodiverziteta.",

najveći prinos je imao ekstenzivni sistem gajenja (6,70 t ha-1) a nešto niži konvencionalni sistem (6,38 t ha-1) dok je od pokrovnih useva najproduktivnije bilo gajenje kukuruza nakon stočnog graška (5,61 t ha-1).Sistemi gajenja kukuruza, posebno kada se radi o proizvodnji za ljudsku ishranu, će ubuduće sve više težiti održivosti i upotrebi alternativnih mera kad je u pitanju upotreba pesticida.
AB  - Sustainable systems of crop cultivation are an alternative to intensive, industrialised agriculture in which a long-term application of pesticides has endangered the environment. The priority in these systems is to reduce the use of herbicides and fertilisers and to increase the production efficiency while using existing resources to protect agro-ecosystems. In this sense, cover crops and tillage systems can contribute to a significant reduction in maize weediness, maintenance of soil quality while achieving high and quality yields. Studies were conducted at the Maize Research Institute, Zemun Polje, Belgrade, with the aim to determine the contribution of the sustainable cultivation system (with cover crops) in comparison to the conventional/intensive cultivation system, soil fertility and maize productivity. The trial was set up in 2020 and encompassed three maize growing systems:- extensive system: after stubble (winter wheat) harvest, soil remained untilled and at the end of summer a total herbicide was applied to control emerged weeds, while in spring, maize 
was sown by direct sowing - intensive system: after stubble (winter wheat) harvest, stubble was shallowly ploughed (shallow ploughing), later the total herbicide was applied to suppress emerged weeds; in autumn, soil was deeply ploughed up, while seedbed preparation with a cultivator and maize sowing were done in spring -sustainable system: after stubble (winter wheat) harvest, stubble was shallowly ploughed (shallow ploughing) and then winter cover crops (winter oats, winter fodder kale and winter field pea) were sown; cover crops were mowed in spring and when biomass was wilted and partially decomposed, maize was sown by direct sowing. Sowing of a high-yielding maize hybrid of the latest generation, ZP5601, was performed on May 6, 2021 at the sowing density of 60,606 plants ha-1. In the stated maize cultivation systems, the contents of total N and C, as well as the C:N ratio were analysed in soil samples drawn prior to maize sowing and maize yield was calculated at 14% grain moisture. At the beginning of the 2021 growing season, the highest content of organic C was recorded in the variant with the conventional cultivation system, whereas the highest content of total N was also determined in this variant but with the extensive cultivation system; the most favourable the C:N ratio was established in variants with cover crops consisted of winter fodder kale and field pea. At the end of the 2021 growing season that was variable and unfavourable for maize, the highest yield (6.70 t ha-1) was recorded in the extensive cultivation system; a slightly lower yield (6.38 t ha-1) was achieved in the conventional 
system, while the most productive (5.61 t ha-1) in the cover crop system was maize cultivation after field pea. Maize cultivation systems, especially when it comes to the production for human 
consumption, will increasingly tend to sustainability and the use of alternative measures instead of the pesticide application.

AB  - The Integrated Weed Management System has been applied with variable success in many crops since its establishment in 1991. Environmental awareness, growing problems with herbicide resistance and a lack of new active ingredients, resulted in weed control not only with chemicals but also other measures. The aim of the study was to examine long-term IWM
measures - combined application of crop rotation and herbicides on weed biomass and maize yield. The trial has been conducted since 2009, encompassing maize continuous cropping (MC), maize-winter wheat (MW), maize-soybean-winter wheat (MSW) and maize-winter wheat-soybean 
(MWS) rotations. The isoxaflutole + acetochlor mixture at recommended (RR), half of the recommended rate (0.5RR) and no-herbicides (C) were preemergence treatments applied in maize. Weed biomass was recorded from two randomly selected sites in the middle of each plot by square meter method, 6-7 weeks after the application of herbicides. Maize grain yield was calculated at 14% moisture at the end of the growing season. The data were processed by 
ANOVA and LSD-test (α = 0.05). According to the 10-year average, weed biomass had decreased with the application of herbicide 0.5RR by 69.2%, 90.0%, 83.2% and 70.9% and of RR by 79.2%, 94.2%, 93.9% and 81.3% in MC, MW, MSW and MWS rotation, respectively. Herbicide RR was in 
average more effective than 0.5RR by 8.8% while the most effective in weed biomass reduction in average for both herbicide rates were MW and MSW rotations - 94.2% and 93.9%, respectively. Herbicide weed control contributed to the grain yield increase even in MC by 31.0% and 43.1% with 0.5RR and RR, respectively, while MSW was the most effective rotation and increased 
yield by 36.1% and 30.5% with 05.RR and RR, respectively. This indicates a significant correlation between the weed biomass decrease and the maize yield increase, as well as the importance of a preceding crop for maize productivity in integrated crop production systems with reduced herbicide use.
