Evaluation of various fungicides and soil solarization practices for the management of common bean anthracnose (Colletotrichum lindemuthianum) and seed yield and loss in Hararghe Highlands of Ethiopia

The study was undertaken to evaluate the effect of integrated management of bean anthracnose through soil solarization and various fungicides applications on epidemics of the disease and to determine the effect of integrated management of bean anthracnose on seed yield and loss of common bean variety Mexican-142. Field experiments were conducted at Haramaya and Hirna in 2010 main cropping season of Ethiopia. Soil...

Inheritance of stem diameter and its relationship to heat and drought tolerance in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)

Genetic control of stem diameter and other stem attributes of wheat in relation to yield components were analyzed in a 7- parent F1 diallel cross in favorable, drought and drought combined heat environments, as well as in 12 F2 populations under heat stress. Polygenes with mainly additive effects were involved in the control of stem diameter which segregated in normal distributions in the F2. The narrow-sense...
