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  - Due to the loss of agro-biodiversity, there is a strong effort to find apparent and efficient
mechanisms for the conservation and sustainable use of genetic diversity. A joint monitoring of the
diversity and collections structure of the Montenegrin maize landraces conserved in the Serbian
(MRIZPGB) and Montenegrin (MGB) gene banks has been conducted in order to improve the
composition of the collections and to identify and eliminate possible redundancy. Based on a separate
analysis of white- and yellow-orange maize landraces, it can be concluded that the diversity and
evolution of distinct maize landraces grown and collected in Montenegro have been simultaneously
shaped by both environmental (i.e., natural selection) and socially driven factors (farmers’ selection,
migration and colonization processes of the human population). Although it has been determined
that the authenticity and variability of the Montenegrin maize landraces gene pool have largely
been preserved in the MRIZPGB collection, a significant amount of redundancy was observed. The
obtained results will contribute to the cost-efficient conservation of the maize gene pool in the
Montenegrin and Serbian gene banks. The recognized and well-preserved original variability of the
MRIZPGB and MGB Montenegrin gene pool represents a valuable source for pre-breeding activities
on broadening the white and flint maize breeding programmes under temperate conditions.

AB  - Introduction/purpose: This paper presents the results of several different research studies. The inbred lines ZPPL 146 and ZPPL 159 and the maize hybrids ZP 633, ZP 735, and ZP 737 are primarily intended for human and livestock nutrition. Their selection took about four decades. Methods: Spectral bands were registered using the method of resonant Raman spectroscopy of the leaves of inbred maize lines. These spectral bands indicate the conformational characteristics of not only carotenoid molecules but also other compounds (phosphate, gluten, and amide III) in the leaf. Results: A systematic examination of the inbred lines ZPPL 146 and ZPPL 159 and their maize hybrids ZP 633, ZP 735, and ZP 737 was performed in this paper. It was stated that the new inbred lines of corn, i.e. ZPPL 146 and ZPPL 159, are rich in carotenoids and yellow pigments. These lines also have significant quantities of other valuable bioactive compounds and good physical characteristics. The lines have an upright position of the top leaves and belong to the group of maize lines with significant characteristics of the photosynthetic model. They are resistant to high temperatures and are drought tolerant. Conclusion: This paper presents the relevant properties, characteristics and parameters of the new studied inbred maize lines that can be used in selection processes in the future. High-yielding and high-quality maize hybrids, i.e. ZP 633, ZP 735, and ZP 737, have been created from the mentioned inbred maize lines. They are recognizable by their qualities. The hybrid ZP633 is especially noteworthy for human consumption (children and the elderly). Further, from the agronomic-veterinary point of view, it is confirmed that the hybrids ZP 735 and ZP 737 are the most suitable for livestock feeding with the programmed use of corn silage. The relevant agronomic, morphological and nutritional properties of the maize hybrids ZP 633, ZP 735, and ZP 737 are also presented in this paper. The results regarding the grain structure and yield height for grain and silage for the hybrids ZP 677 and ZP 684, produced in Serbia and the countries of Southeastern Europe, are also given.

AB  - The aim of this study was to establish the effect of different seed treatments on germination
,
 and the growth 
of  the  embryonic  stem  and  the  radicle  of  tomato  and  pepper  varieties.  Four  treatments  were  used  in  the  
study: MIX [(Coveron + zinc (Zn 0.5%) + boron (B 0.025%)]; Coveron; zinc (ZnSO
4
, Zn 0.5%) and boron 
(B 0.025%). The treatments were applied on seeds of following four pepper varieties: Šorokšari, Somborka, 
Kraljica, and Mirtima and three tomato varieties: Rio Grande, Saint Pierre, and Tomato apple of Novi Sad 
(Novosadski jabučar). Germination and the growth increase of both the embryonic stem (cm) and the radicle 
(cm) were observed in the germination cabinets and pots containing soil in two laboratories – locations. Af-
ter the treatment applied to the pepper seeds and testing in the laboratory germination cabinet the following 
was established: i) the maximum increase in germination of 90% was when the MIX and Zn treatment was 
applied to seeds, ii) the growth increase of embryonic stems of 2.7 cm was recorded when the MIX treatment 
was applied, iii) the growth increase of radicles of 1.7 cm was gained when the Coveron and MIX treatment 
was applied. Tests performed in pots showed that Coveron was the most efficient treatment. Treatments on 
tomato seeds during the seed testing in the germination cabinet provided: vi) the germination increase of 13% 
with the MIX treatment, vii) the growth increase of the embryonic stem of 2.6 cm with the same treatment, 
vii) the growth increase of 1.7 cm of radicles. Coveron was the most efficient treatment in tests in pots.

AB  - The impact of diet and fibre fractions on adipocytokines in obese subjects with a risk of diabetes has not been investigated in detail yet. The purpose of the study is to evaluate the effects of a 12-month lifestyle intervention with different fibre profiles (resistant starch (RS)—rich fibre, or ordinary food fibre profiles) on adipocytokine levels. Fifty participants are divided into two groups (RS group and Fibre group). The groups differ only in the percentage of the recommended level of the RS consumed as a fraction of the same total fibre amount. The applied dietary intervention includes intake of 7531 KJ/daywith a total fibre portion of 25–35 g/dayfor both groups that includes 15 g/day of RS for the RS group only. The levels of leptin, adiponectin, apelin, resistin, tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha and C-reactive protein (CRP) are measured, and their relationship to anthropometric and biochemical parameters is estimated. Along with significant body weight loss, only leptin is significantly reduced by 13% in the RS group while in the Fibre group, apelin levels are significant (−21%). Polynomial regression shows a negative correlation between RS intake and adiponectin (R2 = 0.145) and resistin level (R2 = 0.461) in the RS group. This study indicates the possibility that fibre fractions differently influence the outcome of lifestyle interventions, as well as their adipocytokine levels, in obese prediabetic adults.

AB  - Maize silage is source of palatable and high-energy forage for ruminants. Therefore, production of high quality forage maize represents an essential strategy for stable production of milk and meat on livestock farms. This study examined the effect of harvest date (early dent, at half milk line, at three quarters milk line and black layer) on the quantitative and qualitative parameters of whole maize plant under contrasting climatic conditions in the Srem - Serbia. A 2 × 4 factorial (two years and the four cutting times) randomized blocks design was used, with three replications. The plant height, stem diameter, number of leaves per plant, forage yield, dry matter yield and dry matter content were higher in 2014 probably due to favorable weather conditions. With the delay of the harvest the forage yield, crude protein content, acid detergent fiber (ADF) and neutral detergent fiber (NDF) decreased, and dry matter yield, dry matter content and ear percentage increased. Sufficiently high dry matter content and ear percentage were achieved at the third harvest. However, the delay of harvested time reduces the quality parameters of the biomass, but this loss in the entire plant is moderated by grain filling.

AB  - Tests of seed germination, seed dormancy and seedling growth were performed on 0-, 6-, 20- and 30-months-old seed lots of Festulolium in comparison with Italian ryegrass (Lolium multiflorum) and meadow fescue (Festuca pratensis). Tests were performed on seeds harvested in 2 different years (2014 and 2015) resulting in no major difference between the years. Seed storage affected seed viability and dormancy and seedling growth in all 3 grasses. The maximum germination of Festulolium seeds was achieved 6 months after harvest (95% normal seedlings); germination decreased significantly thereafter. While maximum germination of L. multiflorum and F. pratensis seeds was also achieved following storage for 6 months, these germination rates (93 and 90%, respectively) were retained until at least 20 months in storage. After storage for 30 months, seed germination of Festulolium, L. multiflorum and F. pratensis had declined to 72, 79 and 83%, respectively. High germination in all species was associated with higher rates of seedling growth. In an artificial seed ageing test, a temperature of 41 °C (during 48 and 72 hours) was found to effectively rank seed lots for germination performance in all 3 grasses. This test seems to have application for use in the seed trade to identify seed lots which could deteriorate more rapidly in storage. Further studies are needed to verify this hypothesis.
AB  - Se realizaron pruebas de germinación y de crecimiento de plántulas provenientes de lotes de semillas de Festulolium almacenadas durante 0, 6, 20 y 30 meses, en comparación con raigrás italiano (Lolium multiflorum) y festuca de pradera (Festuca pratensis). En lotes de semillas cosechadas en 2014 y 2015 no se encontraron diferencias entre los años. El almacenamiento afectó la viabilidad y la latencia de las semillas y el crecimiento de las plántulas en las tres especies. La germinación máxima de las semillas de Festulolium se presentó 6 meses después de la cosecha (95% de plántulas normales), a partir de los cuales disminuyó significativamente. También las semillas de L. multiflorum y F. pratensis presentaron máxima germinación después de 6 meses (93 y 90%, respectivamente); estas tasas, sin embargo, se mantuvieron hasta al menos 20 meses de almacenamiento. Después de 30 meses, la germinación de las semillas disminuyó a 72, 79 y 83% para Festulolium, raigrás y festuca, respectivamente. La alta germinación en todas las especies se asoció con mayores tasas de crecimiento de plántulas. En una prueba rápida de envejecimiento artificial de semillas (temperatura de 41 °C durante 48 y 72 horas) fue posible predecir el comportamiento de germinación de las semillas de las tres especies. Esta prueba parece tener aplicación en el comercio para identificar lotes de semillas que podrían deteriorarse más rápidamente durante el almacenamiento. Se necesitan más estudios para verificar esta hipótesis.

AB  - Sugar  beet  is  an  important  crop  of  temperate  climates  and  Serbia.  The  paleobotanic  data  suggest the sea beet was grown from ancient times, while the beets with swollen roots were cultivated in the  Middle  Ages  in  Europe.  Phylogeography  of  the  European  populations  of Heterodera  schachtii,  a  nematode parasite on sugar beet, using Maximum Likelihood and Bayesian analyses was studied. Results based on matching the historical data with phylogenetic analyses based on the ITS rRNA region indicate the area across the Dutch-Belgian coastal region as a possible place of origin of the European H. schachtiipopulations. In  addition,  the  dendrograms  reveal  a  clear  distinction  between  the  two  sister  species  (H. schachtii and H. betae) that coexist on the same host.

AB  - Recent trends in healthy lifestyle and diet made functional foods rich in
quality nutrients and bioactive compounds with potential health benefits highly sought
after. Some cultivated plants, such as soya and chia can provide a viable source of
nutraceuticals with high fibre, protein, and protective antioxidant potential. The wholegrain flours of black soya beans and black chia seeds were used in this study. Potential
nutritive and health-benefitting properties of these flours were compared by assessing
their chemical composition and antioxidant profile. The content of dietary fibres such
as NDF, ADF, ADL and hemicellulose determined in black chia seed sample was
higher than in black soya soya beans which had higher fibre content. The total protein
content recorded in black soya beans was almost as twice as high (42.26+0.14%) as
chia protein content (25.04+0,20%). Black soya beans had the highest content of water
soluble proteins (29.00+0.13% d.m.) with NSI (nitrogen solubility index) acounting
for as much as 70.96+0.31% of total proteins, while black chia seeds had the highest
content of globulins (14.64+0.07% d.m.) and NSI 58.48+0.27% of total proteins. Both
black soya bean and black chia contained a high amount of total phenolic compounds
(830,66+5.46 and 1201.94+16.29 mg GAE/kg, respectively) and exhibited a
considerable total antioxidant capacity, which makes them good contestants for
functional food ingredients with potential health benefits.

AB  - The objective of this study was to evaluate the impact of two foliar fertilizers applied on five
maize (Zea mays L.) lines. Fertilizers were applied at different growth stages of maize, during three consecutive years (2010–2012) at the experimental field of the Maize Research Institute “Zemun Polje”, Serbia. Maize growth parameters such as fresh matter, height, leaf area and grain yield were recorded. Foliar fertilizer with amino acids (FAA) was more advantageous to maize plants compared to fertilizer containing phosphorus (FP) as a main component. Applied FAA has shown positive effects by increasing fresh matter, leaf area index, and plant height in all three years. In 2012, due to unfavorable meteorological conditions, grain yield and harvest index were very low, compared to the previous two years, although, positive effects on morphological traits were observed 21 days after treatments (DAT), as well as in the anthesis stage. The best results of 30% of grain yield and harvest index increase were recorded in line L1 in 2010 and 2011. The same line had an increase of more than 40% of fresh matter and leaf area on average for all three years. The positive effects that have been noticed in this research could recommend foliar fertilizing with fertilizer containing N in a form of an amino acids complex.

AB  - A soil tillage system adjusted to the soil type and agro-ecological conditions, togetherwith the optimal nutrient supply, is a prerequisite for high maize (Zea mays L.) yield. However,there is little knowledge about the influence of soil tillage and nitrogen (N) rates on maize grainquality. A study was initiated in 1978 in Zemun Polje, Belgrade, Serbia, on the chernozem soil type.The effects of three N rates—0, 180 and 240 kg N ha−1—within three tillage practices—no-tillage,reduced and conventional tillage—and their influence on grain yield (GY) and the content of proteins,starch, oil, total tocopherols and carotenoids, phytic phosphorus (Phy), glutathione (GSH), phenolsand inorganic P (Pi) in maize grain were analysed in the period 2016–2018. Differences in maizeGY were 2.57 and 3.01 t ha−1for reduced- or no-tillage, respectively, in comparison to conventionaltillage. Conventional tillage and higher N rates contributed to the increase in maize yield and thegrain nutritional quality with regard to the increased level of proteins, GSH and Phy. On the otherhand reduced inputs were beneficial only for grain quality, in relation to the increase in tocopherolsand phenols.

However,there is little knowledge about the influence of soil tillage and nitrogen (N) rates on maize grainquality. A study was initiated in 1978 in Zemun Polje, Belgrade, Serbia, on the chernozem soil type.The effects of three N rates—0, 180 and 240 kg N ha−1—within three tillage practices—no-tillage,reduced and conventional tillage—and their influence on grain yield (GY) and the content of proteins,starch, oil, total tocopherols and carotenoids, phytic phosphorus (Phy), glutathione (GSH), phenolsand inorganic P (Pi) in maize grain were analysed in the period 2016–2018. Differences in maizeGY were 2.57 and 3.01 t ha−1for reduced- or no-tillage, respectively, in comparison to conventionaltillage. Conventional tillage and higher N rates contributed to the increase in maize yield and thegrain nutritional quality with regard to the increased level of proteins, GSH and Phy. On the otherhand reduced inputs were beneficial only for grain quality, in relation to the increase in tocopherolsand phenols.",

AB  - Quality protein maize (QPM) (Zea mays L.) is primarily used for food in countries of tropical and sub-tropical regions
where maize is the main source of protein. Although its cultivation in temperate regions is hampered by residues of
exotic germplasm, it could be beneficial for use in livestock feeds as it was shown that substitution of standard maize
with QPM can improve livestock characteristics and decrease dietary lysine supplementation. The aim of this study
was to test 11 QPM hybrids obtained by crossing adapted QPM inbred lines for their performance in field trials in 2
yr at four locations, as well as to determine their relevant biochemical components. The main reason for rejecting nine
QPM hybrids was low grain yield, standard hybrids had higher yields on average for 37.8%. Hybrid ZPQPM6 had good
agronomic characteristics, but its biochemical components were nonsignificantly different from the standard hybrid.
Only hybrid ZPQPM13 met necessary criteria, grain yield comparable with standard hybrids, high tryptophan content
in different environments (average 0.083%) and hard endosperm (average score 1.87). Lysine content, measured after
mercantile production, was 0.44%. Quality index, although below the QPM threshold (which is 0.80%) was significantly
higher (p < 0.05) in ZPQPM13 in comparison with standard hybrid, indicating improved nutritional quality of the protein.
The results indicated that presence of exotic germplasm in these QPM hybrids is a consequential difficulty and that in their
parental inbred lines at least one more backcross with temperate germplasm should be done to select better adapted QPM.

AB  - The successful production of soybeans is largely dependent on the sowing time, because
every sowing outside the optimal time contributes significantly to yield losses. This field study
aimed to evaluate the effects of sowing time (optimal—April 5; late—April 27) on the quantitative
and quality traits of three soybean genotypes (Galina—0 maturity group; Sava—I maturity group;
and Rubin—II maturity group) under dryland conditions in Vojvodina Province (Serbia) during
2017 and 2018. The genotype Sava had higher yield in climatic-unfavorable 2017, while Rubin had a
higher yield in climatic-favorable 2018. The yields significantly decreased when the soybeans were
sown in late April due to reductions in the number of pods per plant, seed weight per plant, and
1000-seed weight. The reduction in yield components was likely due to the accelerated senescence of
plants and the negative effect of high temperature and low precipitation during the seed filling stage.
Accordingly, the various sowing times and properly chosen genotypes provide a better utilization of
soil and water resources. A proper genotype selection and sowing time can contribute to a high yield.
At the same time, the protein and oil contents can be altered by the sowing time, especially under
water stress during the reproductive stage.

AB  - Plant genetic resources are a link between agriculture, environment and trade, so their conservation requires cooperation from different sectors. The existing diversity in genetic resources is the foundation in breeding for new challenges or new markets in the future. The number of crop genetic resources in Serbia is obscure because there is no national inventory. It is thought that there are about 15,000 seed accessions and 3500 accessions of fruit trees and grape in collections of different national institutes and stakeholders. In the National Plant Gene Bank, there are more than 4000 accessions of nearly 250 plant species. Crops kept in ex situ collections are used in breeding programs and interspecific crosses, for selection and introduction of desired traits through pre-breeding programs. Serbia as a state participates in all national and international efforts for preservation, management and use of plant genetic resources. Additionally, Serbia has also established a set of national regulations related to plant genetic resources and their use in breeding. Since Serbia is one of Europe’s most important crop producers, especially in maize (11% of EU-27 production), soya (35%), sunflowers (6%) and sugar beet (2.5%), this paper discusses certain issues and achievements in the use of plant genetic resources in cereal and oil crops improvement in Serbia, as well as national and international regulations affecting their exploitation.

AB  - Although accompanied with adverse low temperatures, early maize sowing could be
used to avoid drought during flowering and diminish yield losses. Herein, a small-scale
experiment of low temperature stress (LTS) on maize lines L1 (tolerant), L2 (medium
tolerant) and L3 (susceptible) is presented. Plants were grown in pots exposed to
exterior suboptimal (March) and optimal (late April) temperatures until three leaf stage.
Chlorophyll (CH), flavonoids (FL), anthocyanins (AN) and nitrogen balance (NBI)
indices were measured using Dualex Scientific optical device. Growth parameters were
also determined. Under LTS, number of plants was unchanged for L1 and halved for L2
and L3. Compared to L2 and L3, L1 had significantly higher (p<0.05) shoot fresh
weight (0.649 g vs. 0.406 g and 0.303 g), AN (0.17 vs. 0.13) and FL (1.47 vs. 1.38 and
1.36). For recovery evaluation, plants were transplanted into the field. Transplanted
stressed L1 plants showed the highest grain yield per plant (55g) in the field. Due to
high correlations (p<0.01) between FL in three leaf stage and grain yield per plant, FL
could be used as an indicator of plant recovery of maize genotypes exposed to LTS
during early sowing.

nitrogen balance index (NBI) su mereni korišćenjem uređaja Dualex Scientific (Force-A, Orsay,

abstract = "Although accompanied with adverse low temperatures, early maize sowing could be
used to avoid drought during flowering and diminish yield losses. Herein, a small-scale
experiment of low temperature stress (LTS) on maize lines L1 (tolerant), L2 (medium
tolerant) and L3 (susceptible) is presented. Plants were grown in pots exposed to
exterior suboptimal (March) and optimal (late April) temperatures until three leaf stage.
Chlorophyll (CH), flavonoids (FL), anthocyanins (AN) and nitrogen balance (NBI)
indices were measured using Dualex Scientific optical device. Growth parameters were
also determined. Under LTS, number of plants was unchanged for L1 and halved for L2
and L3. Compared to L2 and L3, L1 had significantly higher (p<0.05) shoot fresh
weight (0.649 g vs. 0.406 g and 0.303 g), AN (0.17 vs. 0.13) and FL (1.47 vs. 1.38 and
1.36). For recovery evaluation, plants were transplanted into the field. Transplanted
stressed L1 plants showed the highest grain yield per plant (55g) in the field. Due to
high correlations (p<0.01) between FL in three leaf stage and grain yield per plant, FL
could be used as an indicator of plant recovery of maize genotypes exposed to LTS
during early sowing., Ranom setvom kukuruza se može izbeći efekat suše u fazi cvetanja i tako preduprediti smanjenje

AB  - Nitrogen (N) is an important element for many physiological processes in crops, and grain yield realisation. Nitrogen loss could be significant through leaching and evaporation, and from this reason lower quantities for fertilization are required. A genotype could be an important source for improved N management in crops. Breeding for high yield and nutrient-efficient genotypes is the most important strategy to enable food security, resolve resource scarcity and environmental pollution. Variability of 36 maize lines grown in optimal and low-N (without fertilization) conditions was assessed through grain yield, 1000 kernel weight, N utilization efficiency (NUtE) and N apparent recovery fraction (nitrogen use efficiency – NUE), during seasons 2017 and 2018. The
genotype and year are important sources for variation of grain yield, 1000 kernel weight and NUtE, as a factor which defines N utilization efficiency. The lines, such as L1, L6, L13, L16, L26, L27, L32 and L34 are able to achieve higher grain yield when grown on low-N. Furthermore, L16, L22, L24 and L26 have high NUtE values in both experimental years (even in 2017, season with low and unequal precipitation level), especially in low-N treatment. From that point of view, they could be characterized as efficient N users, even in low-N conditions, as well as tolerant to stressful conditions. Nevertheless, L1, L6 and L27 are the lines with negative NUE, what gives them attribute as the best N users in low-N conditions. Based on the similarity of NUtE values, the genotypes such as L2, L3, L4, L8, L11, L12, L14, L15, L16, L18, L19, L24, L26, L32, L33, L34 could be considered as the primary focus for further breeding programs, due to the fact that they don’t have only improved NUE, but also high grain yield (even in unfavourable years), which indicates improved tolerance to various abiotic stressful factors.

AB  - The uniform seed material is a prerequisite of stable yields. Therefore, the aim of the study was to observe variability of physiological seed traits depending on the classification of seeds by size and shape, and to determine advantages of large over small seed fractions. Three maize (Zea mays L.) hybrids (ZP 505, ZP 677, ZP 684), produced in two locations (Orahovo, Plavna), were  classified into six fractions; small flat seed (SFS), medium small flat seed (MSFS), large flat
seed (LFS), small round seed (SRS), medium small round seed (MSRS) and large round seed (LRS). Two laboratory treatments were applied on seed: TR1 (cold test) and TR2 (20/30 ºC). In both temperature treatments, the first evaluation was done after 72-h germination, and then every 24 h until 7th day. The highest total germination (G) was recorded for ZP 677 (93.7%), location Orahovo (94.9%), temperature TR2 (95.2%) and MSFS fraction (89.7%). The total proportion of
factors in the variance for G was R2  = 0.694. Locations and genotypes predominantly affected the germination rate (GR), η = 0.338. Flat fraction seeds had more rapid emergence (> 90%) of seedlings than the round fraction seeds (> 85%). Round seeds were more susceptible and seed size had a greater effect on vigour than LRS, 70%. The partial effect of the fraction on G was not estimated (η = 0.037), but its cumulative effect with other factors was evident (Hybrid × Fraction,
η = 0.070).

AB  - This study was conducted to compare soil particle density (ρs), soil total porosity (TP), liquid limit (LL), plastic limit (PL), and plasticity index, and their relations with soil organic matter (SOM), of non-carbonate silty clay Fluvisols under different land uses. Three neighboring land uses were studied: native deciduous forest, arable land, and meadow, managed in the same way for more than 100 years. Soil was collected from 27 soil profiles and from three depths (0–15, 15–30 and 30–45 cm). Land use caused statistically significant but different impacts on soil properties, particularly in the topsoil. The forest topsoil measured the lowest ρs and bulk density (ρb) but the highest SOM and soil water content at PL, compared to meadow and arable soil. Statistically significant linear relationship was observed with the SOM content and ρs (− 0.851**), ρb (− 0.567**), calculated TP (0.567**) and measured TP (− 0.280**). There was a nonlinear relationship between SOM and LL (0.704**) and PL (0.845**) at the topsoil. The findings suggested that SOM content strongly affected ρs, ρb, TP, LL and LP. This regional study showed that the conversion of forestland into agricultural land without appropriate measures to conserve SOM leads to the degradation of physical and rheological soil properties.

AB  - The effects of different measures within maize cropping technology, aimed to suppress weeds as a part of integrated weed management (IWM) system, are analysed and evaluated in this manuscript, in line with the results of longterm experiments. For sustainable maize (Zea mays L.) production, implementation of IWM system aiming to reduce reliance on chemical weed control within Europe is a key priority. This IWM system includes all possible solutions, such as preventive, direct, biological, mechanical and alternative measures. A cropping system approach
is essential to manage weeds, utilize genetic potential of maize genotypes and reduce yield losses due to weed competition. Long-term experiments are nowadays rare, but they are an excellent and reliable method for comparing cropping systems regarding yield and reduction of weed infestation level. In the research program implemented at the Maize Research Institute Zemun Polje in Central Serbia, the effects of different cropping measures and their interactions
as a part of IWMs were studied during ten years. Maize rotations with winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) and soybean (Glycine max (L.) Merr.), combined with herbicide application, showed the best effect on weed biomass reduction, 92.1% and 92.2%, respectively. Winter wheat was a better preceding crop for maize than soybean, especially in combination with herbicides applied in recommended as well as in half of recommended rate. Intensification of soil tillage significantly reduced maize weed infestation, especially abundance of perennial species: Johnson grass (Sorghum halepense (L.) Pers.), Canada thistle (Cirsium arvense (L.) Scop.) and field bindweed (Convolvulus arvensis L.). Other measures, such as type of fertilizer, maize row space and crop density, cover cropping and intercropping also affected weed biomass production in maize fields. Maize growing with reduced row spacing contributed to weed biomass reduction by 27.4%, while application of slow-release urea contributed to crop competitiveness. Weed biomass in sweet maize (Zea mays L. convar. saccharata) grown with common vetch as a cover crop was significantly reduced (48.5 g m-2) compared with the treatment without a cover crop
 (564.3 g m-2).

Siekiant sumažinti piktžolių biomasę efektyviausia buvo paprastųjų kukurūzų (Zea mays L.) sėjomaina su žieminiais kviečiais ir sojomis kartu su herbicidų panaudojimu – atitinkamai
92,1 ir 92,2 %. Žieminiai kviečiai buvo geresnis kukurūzų priešsėlis nei sojos, ypač kartu su herbicidais, panaudojus ir rekomenduojamą normą, ir pusę rekomenduojamos jų normos. Žemės dirbimas turėjo reikšmingos įtakos kukurūzų pasėlio piktžolėtumui, ypač daugiametėms piktžolėms: Sorghum halepense (L.) Pers., Cirsium arvense (L.) Scop. ir Convolvulus arvensis L. Kitos priemonės, pavyzdžiui, trąšų rūšis, kukurūzų tarpueilių plotis ir augalų tankumas, antsėlis bei įsėlis, taip pat turėjo įtakos piktžolių biomasei kukurūzų lauke. Kukurūzų auginimas mažesniu
tarpueilių pločiu piktžolių biomasę sumažino 27,4 %, o lėtai atpalaiduojamo karbamido panaudojimas padidino augalų konkurencinę gebą. Saldžiųjų kukurūzų (Zea mays L. convar. saccharata), augintų su vikių antsėliu, pasėlyje piktžolių biomasė reikšmingai sumažėjo 
(48,5 g m-2), palyginus su variantu be antsėlio (564,3 g m-2).

AB  - The main nitrogen (N) sources in soybean production originate from soil fixing bacteria
Bradyrhizobium spp. and from mineralization of soil organic N. These sources of N are often not
su cient to cover the N needs of the soybean. The present two-year field study aimed to evaluate the e ects of soybean genotypes (Valjevka and Galina) and rates of starter fertilizer N (0, 30, 60, and 90 kg ha�����1) on quantitative and qualitative parameters and on rain use e ciency (RUE) under contrasting weather conditions in the Pannonian region of Serbia. A field study conducted during two di erent growing seasons: first year with unfavorable weather conditions and second year with favorable weather conditions. As expected, the quantitative parameters, oil content, and RUE were higher in the year with favorable growing season, the second one. According to measured parameters, the genotype Valjevka performed higher yield potential as compared to the genotype Galina. The highest values of quantitative parameters and RUE were recorded at 60 kg N ha�����1, protein content at 90 kg N ha�����1 and oil content 0 kg N ha�����1 (control). This study suggests that proper genotype selection and application of 60 kg N ha�����1 as a starter dose with rhizobial inoculation could contribute to the high yield, while protein could be altered by N amount, independently on genotype.

AB  - Barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) is a secondary grain crop in Serbia used commercially for animal feed, seed, and human food applications. The production of barley in the 2016 to 2017 growing season reached a record yield of almost 400,000 metric tons (USDA 2017). Aspergillus contamination has been rare in the agroecological conditions of cereal-growing areas in Serbia. Changes in climatic factors, such as occurrence of high temperatures and prolonged droughts, increased frequency of Aspergillus spp. Species Aspergillus parasiticus was isolated from maize grain for the first time in Serbia in 2012 and from wheat grains in 2017 (Nikolic et al. 2018). We hypothesized that these pathogens can also be present in barley fields in Serbia. Barley spikes exhibiting bleaching were sampled at the beginning of June 2017 grown in northern Serbia. In severe infections, barley spikes get a dry look with awns that stand upright and firm. The incidence of the disease of the bleached spiked in the field was 15 to 20%. From each representative sample, 100 shriveled grains were collected. After surface sterilization with bleach/distilled water 1:3, 100 grains per sample (10 per Petri dish) were placed on potato dextrose agar and incubated at 25°C for 7 days. After isolation, 50% of isolates were identified as Alternaria spp., 20% as Fusarium spp., approximately 15% as Aspergillus spp. In order to reliably identify individual species of fungi, the fragments of colonies were transferred to malt extract agar (MEA) and Czapek yeast agar (CYA) and incubated in the dark for 7 days. The fungal colonies were dark green. The reverse side was pale yellow. The average colony diameter was 65 mm. Conidia were spherical and rough with thick walls. The average size of conidia was 5.1 µm. Colonies were floccose and thin on MEA and CYA. Based on growth and morphological characteristics, isolates were determined as A. parasiticus (Pitt and Hocking 2009). Molecular detection of Aspergillus species was done by using PCR-restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis of the aflR-aflJ (genes for aflatoxin biosynthesis) intergenic spacer. The restriction enzyme BglII was able to cut the PCR product of A. parasiticus at one restriction site, resulting in two fragments of 363 and 311 bp (El Khoury et al. 2011). A. parasiticus CBS 100926 was used as a reference isolate. The pathogenicity of 20 isolates was verified on a group of 20 randomly selected spikes in four replicates (Mesterházy et al. 1999). A 7-day-old culture of each isolate was used for the preparation of the spore suspension (1 × 10⁶ spores/ml). Inoculation was carried out after 50% of plants reached the anthesis stage. Groups of 20 selected spikes were sprayed from all sides with 20 ml of fungal spore suspension. Control spikes were inoculated by applying an equal amount of sterile distilled water. The infection rate was estimated after 3 weeks on a 1 to 7 scale, with 1 = 0 to 5%, 2 = 5 to 15%, 3 = 15 to 30%, 4 = 30 to 50%, 5 = 50 to 75%, 6 = 75 to 90%, and 7 = 90 to 100% infected spike area. The average infection rate was 3.2. The pathogen was reisolated from the inoculated spikes and identified as A. parasiticus, with the aim to confirm Koch’s postulates. Developed symptoms were similar to those observed on spikes collected from the field. Control spikes did not show any symptoms of the disease. These results confirmed the pathogenicity of A. parasiticus on H. vulgare. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of the occurrence of A. parasiticus on barley grain in Serbia. Because A. parasiticus is known to be a severe aflatoxin producer and climatic changes can increase the frequency of this fungus, further studies are necessary to improve strategies for food safety and quality.

in eastern Croatia. The field study was set up as a Randomized Complete Block
Design (RCBD) in four replications. The results have demonstrated a significant
effect of the plant densities and the growing seasons on the seed yield and on the
following yield components: plant height and the number of pods/plant. The effect
of plant densities on the number of seeds/pod and the thousand-seed weight was
not significant. As for a growing season, the highest seed yield, plant height, the
number of pods/plant were obtained in the second growing season. Furthermore,
a maximum seed yield was recorded at the 150-plant m-2 plant density. This study
has demonstrated that planting the spring field pea at different plant densities significantly
modifies the spring field pea yield, plant height and number of pods/plant.
AB  - Jari stočni grašak jedna je od najznačajnijih krupnozrnih mahunarki. Ovo je istraživanje provedeno kako bismo vidjeli reakciju utjecaja različitih gustoća sjetve na jari stočni grašak tijekom dvaju vegetacijskih ciklusa 2017. i 2019. godine u istočnome dijelu Republike Hrvatske. Pokus je postavljen po RCBD sustavu u četiri ponavljanja.

AB  - To control weeds and cultivate maize (Zea mays L.) with higher yields, production systems have to include more efficient forms of N and appropriate herbicide treatments. The timing of N release could give maize an advantage over weeds in competition for resources, whereas cultivation at lower row spacing often decreases weed biomass. Knowledge about the different factors affecting herbicide efficiency increases the accuracy and reliability of chemical control. This study tested the weed infestation level and the development and productivity of a recently developed maize hybrid grown with the application of several integrated practices. The maize hybrid was sown with application of standard and slow-releasing urea, with row spacing of 50 and 70 cm and treatment with either a pre-emergence or a post-emergence mix of herbicides. The numbers of plants of each weed species and their biomass were lower after the application of herbicides, although N form and row spacing produced no significant differences in the average weed infestation level for 3 yr. The post-emergence herbicide treatment was more effective than the pre-emergence treatment for weed biomass reduction and enhancing maize yield parameters. The N form did not influence any measured yield parameter, whereas the 70-cm row spacing resulted in significantly higher harvest index and grain yield (0.45 and 9.19 Mg ha−1, respectively) than the 50-cm spacing (0.43 and 7.36 Mg ha−1, respectively). The wider row spacing resulted in higher grain yield through its interaction with N form and herbicide treatment.

AB  - The European corn borer, Ostrinia nubilalis Hbn., is a pest Lepidopteran species whose larvae overwinter by entering diapause, gradually becoming cold-hardy. To investigate metabolic changes during cold hardening, activities of four metabolic enzymes – citrate synthase (CS), lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) were measured in whole-body homogenates of pupae, non-diapausing and diapausing larvae acclimated to 5 °C, −3 °C and −16 °C. The highest CS activity was detected in non-diapausing larvae, reflecting active development, while the highest in vitro LDH activity was recorded in diapausing larvae at temperatures close to 0 °C, evidencing a metabolic switch towards anaerobic metabolism. However, in-gel LDH activity showed that production of pyruvate from lactate is triggered by sub-zero temperatures. The activities of both aminotransferases were highest in non-diapausing larvae. Our findings suggest that during diapause and cold hardening the aminotransferases catalyse production of L-alanine, an important cryoprotectant, and L-aspartate, which is closely tied to both transamination reactions and Krebs cycle. The results of this study indicate that, during diapause, the activity of metabolic enzymes is synchronized with exogenous factors, such as temperatures close to 0 °C. These findings support the notion that diapause is metabolically plastic and vibrant, rather than simply a passive, resting state.
