Influence by Artificial Defoliation and NPK Fertilizer Application on Growth and Yield of Okra (Abelmoschus esculentus (L) Moench)
Chemical Quality of Common Beans as Influenced by Genotype and Aluminium Rates Under Two Soil Liming Regimes
The problem of low soil fertility and poor plant nutrition does not only affect crop yields but also crop quality. A review of many refereed published journal articles and books sourced from internet and libraries was conducted with the aim of highlighting the effects of plant nutrition on crop quality. Emphasis was put on elucidating the functions through which various nutrient elements influence biochemical processes and eventually affect the overall quality of various crops and their products.
Greenhouse growers in Michigan are busy wrapping up transplanting and shipping theirproduct. In the flurry of the season, growers may overlook nutritional disorders in their crops. Most growers have trouble identifying nutrient deficiencies because many of the nutrient deficiencies create similar symptoms. So, how can you tell what nutrient is d
Effects of Different Irrigation and Fertilization Treatments on Growth and Yield of Potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) in Iraq
The experiment was implemented during the autumn season 2013, to study the effect of three methods of irrigation and fertilization on the development and yield of the potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) cv Rivera. Two methods of drip irrigation (putting the pipe at the bottom and at the top of furrows) and furrow irrigation with three types of fertilizers (chemical fertilizer at rate of 300 kg urea, 180 kg superphosphate triple, 240 kg potassium sulphate per hectare) and organic fertilizer at 30 kg.100 m2 -1 with half amount of the chemical fertilizers mentioned.
Had the ancient Roman Empire not developed concrete and cement, the domed buildings, arched bridges and aqueducts we see today would not still give testimony to the Romans’ ingenuity or to the durability of a simple mineral: limestone. Although calcium (Ca) is well known as the main ingredient in limestone, it has also been used for building strong plant cell walls since long before man discovered its uses for lasting architecture.
