Abstract

Effect of years of cultivation, fertilizer combinations and clones of willow on higher heating value and lower heating value of the willow biomass obtained during winter and after a short-term seasoning.

Higher heating value, water content and lower heating value of willow biomass of nine clones of shrubby willow (Salix viminalis), acquired in the years 2008-2010 using different organic and mineral fertilization, is evaluated in the paper. Analyses were performed on samples of biomass acquired from...

Abstract

Infection characteristics of nematophagous fungus Esteya vermicola to plant parasitic nematodes.

In order to explore the biocontrol potency of the nematophagous fungus Esteya vermicola strain NKF 13222, the characteristics of attraction, attachment and infection towards seven plant parasitic nematodes were evaluated by inoculating nematodes on 2% water agar plates with fungus. The results...

Abstract

Controlled-release fertilizer placement affects the leaching pattern of nutrients from nursery containers during irrigation.

Maximizing nutrient use efficiency while minimizing nutrient leaching and non-point source contributions from containerized crop production systems are goals of researchers and growers. These goals have led to irrigation and crop nutrition management practices that reduce fertilizer and irrigation...

Parasitizing, developmental and reproductive performances of Meteorus pidchricornis (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) in relation to host age at oviposition.

Aim: The "dome-shaped" hypothesis suggests that medium aged host larvae are higher in quality than the two ends of host instar for fitness of solitary braconid and ichneomonid parasitoids attacking lepidopteran larvae. The hypothesis receives support from numerous studies, but most of these...

Evaluation of Trichoderma sp. against Rhizoctonia bataticola causing dry root rot of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.).

Attempts were made to study the biocontrol efficacy of antagonistic organism in managing the chickpea dry root rot caused by Rhizoctonia bataticola (Taub) Butler. Twelve Isolates of Trichoderma inhibited the pathogen to varying degrees. Maximum efficiency was recorded in Trichoderma isolate...
