There were four rows in each plot, which the row width and length was 0.6 and 6 m, respectively. At third leaf stage, plants were thinned for the appropriate final stand of 160000plants ha-1. The applied factors consist of sweet sorghum varieties (KFS2 and KFS3), top removal treatments (control, mechanical removal and chemical removal with ethephon) and magnesium sulfate rates (0, 4 and 8 mM). Sweet sorghum varieties are new hybrids released in Iran. Magnesium sulfate levels sprayed at the rapid plants growth stage that was approximately 60 days after planting and repeated in 10 days later.
Transfer the germinated seeds into seedling trays. Mix 6 g of N-P-K (15-15-15) fertilizer with 300 g of soil. Transfer the emerged seedlings at the second-leaf stage into pots containing 5 kg of soil and place in the glasshouse. Flood the pots containing the chilli plants with water and inoculate the plants at the fourth-leaf growth stage. 3.2 Silicon treatments Both powdery silicon oxide and calcium silicate obtained from the glasshouse office in UMT are used as silicon sources in this study.
At the left side of the table a GoPro© was installed to video record the experiment from an angle of ±45˚. Prior to the start of the experiment participants were instructed to try to split sunflower seeds with the help of their hand, anterior teeth, lips and tongue in order to get the whole seed out of the shell. They were advised to place the seed vertically between their anterior teeth and take as much time as needed to perform the task. When they thought they were finished with the task, they had one attempt to remove the shell with their hand and spit the remnants of their mouth in a plastic cup. The instructions and task were also explained with a video.
Even though cooling crystallization and anti-solvent crystallization are convenient, it has major drawbacks in terms of slow rate of crystallization, high supersaturation degree , solvent and anti-solvent selection based on solubility. Some of the newer methods for crystallization include ultrasound assisted (UA) cooling crystallization , UA anti-solvent crystallization  and melt sonocrystallization , . Ultrasound based approach has been found to initiate nucleation at lower supersaturation. Reduction in induction time has been observed in most of the APIs when the supersaturated solution is subjected to ultrasonic irradiation
Cohesive Soil (Clay) Take about 50 gm of the air or oven-dried soil sample and put in a 250-ml beaker. Cover soil with 125 ml of sodium hexametaphosphate solution. Stir until thoroughly wetted and allow mixture to soak for at least 16 hours After soaking period, carefully pour mixture into the dispersion cup. With an electric mixer, mix soil-water slurry for a period of 1 minute Pour slurry into a clean calibrated pycnometer or volumetric flask of known weight. Weigh the flask and slurry, Wfs.
Selection strategy and estimation of interrelationships for improvement of seed yield and other related traits in Linseed (Linum usitatissimum L.) Satish Paul and Nimit Kumar* Department of Crop Improvement, CSK Himachal Pradesh Krishi Vishvavidyalaya, Palampur-176062, India *Corresponding Author Email - firstname.lastname@example.org ABSTRACT Thirty five genotypes of linseed (Linum usitatissimum L.) were evaluated to determine the selection strategy and interrelationships of seed yield and yield related traits, during rabi 2013-14. Analysis of variance revealed that the differences among all the genotypes were significant for all the traits under study. Sufficient genetic variability was observed in the present material selected for the study, through
Place the bean at about 1” up from the bottom of the strip of paper and fold the paper over the bean and tape in place. Executing the Experiment Find a location at an high location, such as a staircase and place a small ‘X’ directly below the dropping site. Drop a bean without a parachute directly above the X without any extra movement from the hand. Drop the bean with no parachute 3 times timing in seconds the time from dropping the bean to when the bean hits the ground. Then, measure in centimeters from the X to the beans final destination.
Introduction The practicum has been developed in RIKEN Centre of Developmental Biology in Kobe, in the laboratory of Axial Pattern Dynamics under the supervision of Inomata-sensei and Matsukawa-san. In the laboratory they try to artificially regulate the gradient shape, they can control morphogen-dependent pattern formation. In general, the shape of a gradient is defined by three factors; synthesis, diffusion, and degradation of morphogen. So, they attempt to spatiotemporally regulate the gradient shape by regulating three factors. They are planning to regulate these three factors using light stimulation method.
Detail studies on crop physiology and the mechanism of drought tolerance in S. aethiopicum can be explored to establish more facts. Additional key words: solanaceae family; drought stress; photosynthetic rate; water use efficiency; organic farming. Introduction Solanum
The experiment was started off by putting a water strip on the bottom of each quad box and labeling the boxes A1-A4 and B1-B4. Then soil was added into the quad boxes along with two seeds into each of the quad boxes about a pencil tip length into the soil. Putting two seeds into each quad box was done to help the rate of germination. Once the seed was in the soil more soil was added to the top of the quad box to cover up the rest of the seed. The fertilizer pellets were added after this was done, zero pellets in both box A1 and B1.
