ALKYLATING EFFICIENCY OF SODIUM AZIDE ON POD YIELD, NUT SIZE AND NUTRITION COMPOSITION OF SAMNUT 10 AND SAMNUT 20 VARIETIES OF GROUNDNUT ( ARACHIS HYPOGEA L.)
Mutation has been utilised to improve growth and yield of many food crops, but only little effort has been made to ascertain the nutritional advantages in such improved crops. The present study evaluates the alkylating efficiency of sodium azide of different concentrations on pod yield, nut size and nutritional composition of two groundnut varieties.
The use of nets and vertical structures to support bottle gourd is helping farmers of D.I. Khan, Pakistan harvest better quality fruit, which fetches higher prices in markets.
A two year field experiment was conducted to investigate the response of crop yield and yield components of watermelon to different tillage methods in the arid lands of Iran. Tillage treatments in the study were moldboard plow + two passes of disk harrow as conventional tillage (CT), two passes of disk harrow as reduced tillage (RT), one pass of disk harrow as minimum tillage (MT) and no-tillage (NT) as direct drilling method.
This graphic will guide growers as they prune blackberry or raspberry plants. It’s a simple, four-step diagram that is easy to follow and reinforces the instructions with images. Growers might consider printing this PDF and posting in appropriate areas of the operation for reference while pruning the plants.
Visual examples of the different types of trellises used to grow blackberries and raspberries. Includes dimensions and pictures of each type.
Growers use many trellis support systems to support bramble canes. Your trellising goal is to minimize labor and maximize yield. Each trellis type has its advantages and disadvantages, and most can be modified to suit your needs. Evaluate each trellis system to determine what type best suits your needs.
