- Response of Rice Cultivars to V-10029. Wei Zhang; Webster, Eric P.; Leon, Christopher T. // Weed Technology;April/June2005, Vol. 19 Issue 2, p307
A study was conducted in 2002 and 2003 to evaluate response of seven rice cultivars to V-10029 applied at 20 and 40 g ai/ha to two- to three- or four- to five-leaf rice. Differential response of the rice cultivars to V-10029 was observed. Medium-grain 'Earl' was less tolerant to V-10029, as...
- Recovery efficiencies for Burkholderia thailandensis from various aerosol sampling media. Dabisch, Paul; Wilhelm, Kristin; Dorsey, Brandi; Wronka, Loni // Frontiers in Cellular & Infection Microbiology;May2012, Vol. 2, preceding p1
Burkholderia thailandensis is used in the laboratory as a surrogate of the more virulent B. pseudomallei. Since inhalation is believed to be a natural route of infection for B. pseudomallei, many animal studies with B. pseudomallei and B. thailandensis utilize the inhalation route of exposure....
- ALL ABOUT GROWING WINTER GRAINS. Pleasant, Barbara // Mother Earth News;Aug/Sep2011, Issue 247, p23
The article offers tips on growing and harvesting whole grains, such as oats, winter barley and winter wheat, during the winter season. According to the author, the grains must be fertile and the soil must be well-drained with 6.0 potential of Hydrogen (pH). She adds that it is also recommended...
- Can we raise grain yields fast enough? Brown, Lester R. // World Watch;Jul/Aug97, Vol. 10 Issue 4, p8
Focuses on the harvesting of different grains in several countries and ways to increase the produce. Reference to food demand doubling by the year 2030; Relation to the World Bank projections; Yieldings of rice in Japan; Reference to wheat yieldings in the United States; Factors which increases...
- Genetic Designing of Plant Architecture in Wheat. Dhanda, S. S.; Munjal, Renu // IUP Journal of Genetics & Evolution;Nov2009, Vol. 2 Issue 4, p62
Wheat plant architecture has been continually evolving over the past many years primarily in response to increase in the yield potential. One of the most important factors for improvement in the wheat yield potential was the use of Rht genes in the early 1960s. Use of rye chromatin is a...

- Variations in relative humidity modulate Leptosphaeria spp. pathogenicity and interfere with canola mechanisms of defence. El Hadrami, Abdelbasset; Fernando, W.; Daayf, Fouad // European Journal of Plant Pathology;Feb2010, Vol. 126 Issue 2, p187
AbstractÃ‚Â Ã‚Â Blackleg (phoma stem canker), caused by Leptosphaeria spp., is an important disease of canola (oilseed rape, Brassica napus). Control strategies rely on the use of resistant cultivars, chemical and disease-reducing cropping practices. In Canada, the pathogen population...
