Localization of Garlic Apex by Digital Image Analysis Techniques

  Sowing and harvesting are the most costly operations in the garlic production (Allium sativum L.), because they are carried out by hand. In order for mechanized sowing to be feasible, the garlic clove must be placed in the soil with the apex facing upwards because placing it randomly reduces...

The Impacts of Biofertilizer and Mineral Fertilization on the Growth and Production of Yellow Passion Fruit Irrigated with Moderately Saline Water

  Yellow passion fruit, because it is sensitive to the salinity of irrigation water or soil, requires restrictive water management strategies and inputs that mitigate the effects of salts on plants irrigated with harmful saline water levels. As such, an experiment was designed to evaluate the...

Grafting and Budding Nursery Crop Plants

  Grafting and budding are horticultural techniques used to join parts from two or more plants so that they appear to grow as a single plant. In grafting, the upper part (scion) of one plant grows on the root system (rootstock) of another plant. In the budding process, a bud is taken from one...
