Less floor ozone might considerably enhance wheat yield: examine



BEIJING, Feb. 10 (Xinhua) — Chinese researchers have found that halving ozone dose might enhance wheat yields by greater than 20 %, the Science and Technology Daily reported Thursday.

The climbing focus of floor ozone air pollution hinders crop progress and reduces yields, in line with the report.

The researchers from the Nanjing University of Information Science and Technology labored in cooperation with 9 different establishments to evaluate the relative yield loss in rice, wheat and maize attributable to ozone, by combining the ozone elevation experiments throughout Asia and air monitoring at about 3,000 places in China, Japan and the Republic of Korea.

They discovered that the overall ozone-induced annual lack of crop manufacturing is estimated at 63 billion U.S. {dollars} in East Asia, in line with a latest analysis article printed within the journal Nature Food.

More particularly, the yields of wheat, rice and maize could possibly be improved by 21 %, 10 % and 4 % respectively in China, if the ozone had been decreased half with emission discount measures.

The researchers prompt taking mitigation motion for ozone emission management and adaptive agronomic measures towards the rising floor ozone ranges throughout East Asia.
