Effect of NPK fertilization on yield and inflorescenc

  Application of three levels of nitrogen as urea (0, 60 and 120 kg/ha), phosphorus as single super phosphate (SSP) (0, 72 and 144 kg/ha) and potassium as muriate of potash (MOP) (0, 24 and 48 kg/ha) fertilizers on inflorescence blight of cashew caused by Lasiodiplodia theobromae and yield of cashew were studied on acid sand soils of Ochaja, Nigeria in 2000 and 2001. Results showed that single...

Studying of oil yield variations in winter rapeseed (Brassica napus L.) cultivars under drought stress conditions

  This experiment was carried out using a split plot design with three replications to study the effect of drought stress on oil yield variations in winter rapeseed cultivars at Iran. The factors including irrigation regimes (control, irrigation interrupted from flowering stage, irrigation interrupted fromsilique formation stage and irrigation interrupted from seed filling stage)...

The struggle against Phragmanthera capitata (Sprengel) S. Balle (Loranthaceae) parasite of agroecosystems’ fruit trees in Cameroon

  In Central Africa sub region, Phragmanthera capitata (Sprengel) S. Balle (Loranthaceae) is better adapted to the conditions of environment modified by man. This species causes often considerable loss of harvests. Struggle methods used in the littoral region of Cameroon against P. capitata are manual removal of tufts and the “ethephon” chemical struggle. Impacts of these...

Studying the interactive effect of potassium application and individual field crops on root penetration under drought condition

  In this study, interactive effects of different potassium application and water restrict on: root penetration at Iran. The experimental unit had designed by achieved treatment in factorial on the basis completely randomized block design with three replications. Certain factors including potassium and non-potassium applications (0 and 200 kg/ha), certain field crops (maize, sorghum and...
