Rootstock Age and Grafting Season Affect Graft Success and Plant Growth of Papaya (Carica papaya L.) in Greenhouse

  Papaya (Carica papaya L.) is an important fruit crop in many tropical and subtropical countries; it is commercially propagated through seeds, which lead to production of non true-to-type plants. Grafting for mass multiplication of the selected variety is therefore necessary....

Effect of Plant Row Arrangement on Yield Components of Bell Pepper

  An alternative to the production of bell pepper (Capsicum annuum L.) under greenhouse conditions is the management of plants in a high-density population, with blunting above the fourth branching to achieve short cycles and arrangement of plant rows at different heights to form a stair-like...
