Ambiol, spermine, and aminoethoxyvinylglycine prevent water stress and protect membranes in Pinus strobus L under drought
The ability of antistress compounds to enhance the drought tolerance of conifer seedlings was tested by feeding plant growth regulators (PGRs) to 1-year-old white pine (Pinus strobus L.), which were then subjected to ...
Physiological responses of onion (Allium cepa L.) seedlings exposed to drought
Twenty-one day old onion seedlings were subjected to various drought regimes by withholding water. Soil moisture potential (Psi(ext)), leaf water potential (Psi(L)), growth, photosynthesis (Pn), stomatal conductance (Cs), ...

Dehydration reduces crack development in IQF "Baby Carrots"
Crack development and enhancement in Individually Quick Frozen (IQF) "Baby carrots" are major problems since they lower product quality, profitability and consumer preference. Studies were initiated to determine crack ...

Ecophysiological characteristics of two carrot (Daucus carota L.) cultivars in response to agroecological factors and nitrogen application
Plant density, planting time, harvest timing, and nitrogen influence on short-term gas-exchange properties of carrot cultivars, Topcut and Sugarsnax (Daucus carota L.) were investigated under field conditions. Net ...
Compensatory effects of elevated CO2 concentration on the inhibitory effects of high temperature and irradiance on photosynthetic gas exchange in carrots
We determined the interactive effects of irradiance, elevated CO2 concentration (EC), and temperature in carrot (Daucus carota var. sativus). Plants of the cv. Red Core Chantenay (RCC) were grown in a controlled environmental ...
The effect of seeding rate, seeding date and seeder type on the performance of Camelina sativa L. in the Maritime Provinces of Canada
The hypothesis of this study was that spring camelina (Camelina sativa L.) could be grown as a high-value crop under the moist, cool conditions of the Maritime Provinces in Canada and seeding date, seeding rate, and type ...
Gas exchange of carrot leaves in response to elevated CO2 concentration
Short-term responses of four carrot (Daucus carota) cultivars: Cascade, Caro Choice (CC), Oranza, and Red Core Chantenay (RCC) to CO2 concentrations (C-a) were studied in a controlled environment. Leaf net photosynthetic ...
Susceptibility of winter and spring triticales to fusarium head blight and deoxynivalenol accumulation
Fusarium head blight (FHB), caused by the fungus Fusarium graminearum (Schwabe), is one of the most destructive diseases in cereals worldwide. It may severely reduce both grain yield and quality, with potential contamination ...
