For both cultivars, primary growth began in early March, immediately after bud burst, which had occurred by the end of February.
The well irrigated trees (T0) and moderately stressed trees (T1) had similar final basal diameters for both cultivars. However, the severely stressed Koroneiki trees (T2) showed lower decreases in basal diameters (2.03 mm) than the Picholine cultivar (2.31 mm).
Type III (30 and 40 mm) seed tubers were used from cultivars BRS Clara, BRS F63 Camila, and Agata at both planting times, being homogenized for sanity and physiological age.
The experimental design was completely randomized, with four treatments (Tupy, Guarani, Xavante and Cherokee cultivars), four replicates per treatment and 25 fruits per plot.
The comparative infestation of BFSB on five aubergine cultivars was studied at University Research Area PMAS, Arid Agriculture University, Rawalpindi.
The present study is based on the hypothesis that there is variability in morpho-physiological characteristics of soybean cultivars when coexisting with corn volunteers plants, allowing the selection of cultivars with better competitive ability.
Although we observed no significant interaction between the Brachiaria cultivars and inducers with regard to phenolic compound content in shoots (F = 1.14; df = 15; P = 0.3297), isolated activity of these factors (cultivars and inducers) was observed.
Hardneck cultivars tend to have a more complex flavor profile--they're richer, spicier, and generally more 'garlicky.' Hardneck cultivars also tend to have a larger-than-average clove size, which makes them easier to peel because of their plumpness, regular shape, and thicker skin.
Many of these genes are race-specific genes, showing hypersensitive reactions, and breeders are currently using several genes to develop new cultivars.
Since that period, resistant cultivars have grown slightly, while vinifera plantings have continued to increase exponentially.
There were five gathered lentil cultivars. The gathered samples for each of the cultivar were replicated from 4 to 7 replicates.
For the selection, the cultivars were distributed in quartiles, delimited by the mean root length, without the stress of [Al.sup.3+] toxicity, plus 75% of its standard deviation and the mean of its [Al.sup.3+] toxicity susceptibility index, minus 25% of its standard deviation.
