Abstract

Some soil microorganisms, especially bacteria and mycorrhizal fungi, play a role in the promotion of plant growth. However, plant growth promotion involving yeasts in soil has not yet been extensively investigated. This study aimed to isolate and identify yeast strains obtained from soils of the...

Abstract

Glyphosate, a widely used preplant herbicide in annual and perennial crops, was introduced to Sri Lanka in 1977. Its use has expanded since 2008 with the phase-out and ban in 2014 of paraquat. In December 2014, glyphosate use in Sri Lanka was regionally restricted. Crop protection and production in ...

Abstract

Aluminium (Al) is highly toxic to plant growth, with soluble concentrations being elevated in the ~40% of arable soils worldwide that are acidic. Determining the distribution of Al in plant tissues is important for understanding the mechanisms by which it is toxic and how some plants tolerate high...

Abstract

The chlorfenapyr residues in the entire tea chain, i.e., in tea planting, tea processing, and tea brewing, were systematically investigated. The degradation rate constants of chlorfenapyr in the tea plants ranged from 0.2460 to 0.2870 with the half-life of 2.4-3.0 days, and 87.5-89.9% of the...
