Modification of surface structure and crystallinity of water hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes) following recombinant α-L-arabinofuranosidase (abfa) treatment

  This research was aimed to investigate the modification of surface structure and crystallinity of water hyacinth after recombinant α-L-arabinofuranosidase treatment. The process of water hyacinth hydrolysis was optimized first, by determination of the most optimal intracellular enzyme (P) and extracellular enzyme (S) mixture ratio, and its incubation time. The optimum of water hyacinth...

Investigating Fe and Zn foliar application on yield and its components of soybean (Glycine max (L) Merr.) at different growth stages

  In order to investigate Zn, Fe and Zn+Fe foliar application effects on soybean (Glycine max L.) yield and its components (number of pods per plant, number of seeds per pod and 1000 grain weight), a field experiment was conducted at Minodasht, Iran during 2009 and 2010 growth season. The experiment was arranged in split plot of a randomized complete block design and replicated three times. Parameters...
