Abstract

Gerbera (Gerbera jamesonii) is an important commercial species of cut flowers all around the world. Stem bending is a major disorder in cut gerbera flowers caused mainly by the lack of mechanical support in the flower stem. Lignin is the component of plant cell walls that provides strength. Three...

Abstract

Embryogenic callus (EC) induction and plantlet regeneration of oil palm (Elaeis guineensis) are essential platforms for the propagation of uniform hybrid cultivars in large-scale cultivation. In this paper, an embryogenic callus was successfully induced from leaf tissue from the 'Tenera' varieties...

Abstract

The fall armyworm, Spodoptera frugiperda (J.E.Smith.), is an important pest that has developed resistance to Bt corn in several countries. In this study, leaf-tissue bioassays and whole-plant tests were conducted to evaluate the performance of a Bt-susceptible (aabb), a Cry1A.105/Cry2Ab2 dual-gene...

CAB ReviewFull Text

Cotton is an important fibre crop of global and economic significance. For effective control of bollworms, transgenic Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) cotton was introduced on a commercial scale in 1996, with an aim to reduce pesticide consumption. Presently, transgenic cotton is grown on 24 million...

CAB ReviewFull Text

Western corn rootworm (Diabrotica virgifera virgifera LeConte) and northern corn rootworm (Diabrotica barberi (Smith and Lawrence)) are major pests of maize in the USA. These pests have been managed with a variety of tactics over the last century. Both Diabrotica spp. have adapted to crop rotation...

AbstractFull Text

The applicability of near infrared (NIR) spectroscopy combined with chemometrics was examined to develop fast, low-cost and non-destructive spectroscopic methods for classification of transgenic maize plants. The transgenic maize plants containing both cry1Ab/cry2Aj-G10evo proteins and their...
