    In arid regions, the water from aquifers usually contains high NaCl levels, and alternative water sources, such as desalination plants, produce boron accumulation and have an adverse effect on crops. We studied the water transport and membrane integrity of two broccoli (Brassica oleracea L.)...

    Production of melon (Cucumis melo) may be limited by excesses of boron and salinity, and it was hypothesized that melon grafted ontoCucurbitarootstock would be more tolerant to excessive boron concentrations than non-grafted plants. The objectives of this study were (i) to determine the effects...

    Although boron (B) is a micronutrient essential for the growth of vascular plants, it reduces growth and seed yield when present in excessive amounts. A hydroponic assay of nineteen Brassica rapa genotypes resulted in the identification of two tolerant genotypes, WWY Sarson and Local at a range...

    De-oiled cake of Brassica juncea is produced in large quantities in India and Worldwide. It has no economic importance. Present experiment is an attempt to convert it in nutrients rich vermicompost through the activities of Eisenia foetida. The experiment was laid down with four treatments viz....

    An experiment was laid out with two levels of PSB inoculation (PSB @ 100 g/l and 200 g/l), three levels of boron (Boron @ 0.2%, 0.4% and 0.6%) and their six interactions and one control. There were total twelve treatment combinations. Observations were recorded on the different aspect of the...

    A field trial with four red clover cultivars was established on acid soil in order to evaluate the effect of foliar boron application on seed yield. The crop received foliar boron treatment during the second growth of the second year at two applications. Although seed yield showed a significant...

    Disposal of saline irrigation wastewater in hydrologically closed sinks in the semi-arid western U.S. has concentrated selenium-rich salts to hazardous levels and phytoextraction, along with plant-enhanced volatilization of methyl-selenides, is an active area of research. Here, we provide an...
