  • Root intrusion prevention

    Nothing spells the death of a subsurface drip irrigation (SDI) system taster than root intrusion. With more growers placing drip irrigation lines below the soil surface, the need for a better understanding of how to keep roots out of drip emitters has also become more important. Work done at The ("enter for Irrigation Technology (GIT) over the past 10 years has given us some insight into how to ...

  • The intellectual roots of latecomer industrial development

    I argue that a secure platform for strategising around industrial development can be built on insights from three streams of literature: the latecomer in history (associated with Gerschenkron), and the special advantages that may be derived from recognition of the latecomer effect; latecomer industrial dynamics, and in particular the flying geese patterns of industry transfer from country to ...

  • Sustainable development - historical roots of the concept

    This article gives an overview of the origin of the concept of sustainable development by going far back in history to trace its roots. It shows how the idea of sustainability evolved through the centuries as a counter to notions of progress. The historical context in the latter half of the 20th century is outlined, in which a paradigm shift in thinking about development caused sustainable ...

  • Fine root distributions in oilseed and pulse crops

    Fine roots are of great importance in the uptake of water and nutrients from, and input of, carbon to the soil. This study determined the proportion of extra fine ( ...

  • Testing for inflation convergence: a panel unit–root approach

    We conduct empirical analyses to study the inflation performance in three groups of economies, namely the European Monetary Union (EMU), the developed and the developing inflation targeting (IT) economies. In particular, our first objective is to compare the performance of inflation targeting regime versus monetary union of EMU in achieving lower inflation rate. The second objective is to detect ...

  • Drought tolerance and rooting capacity of Kentucky bluegrass cultivars

    As freshwater resources for turfgrass irrigation become more limited, the development of drought-tolerant turf cultivars will be of great value to turf managers. The objective of the following research was to evaluate the field drought tolerance of Kentucky bluegrass (Poa pratensis L.) cultivars and compare their drought tolerance to rooting capacity. Fifty bluegrass entries were established in ...

  • SRS Crisafulli`s Rugged Roots in Montana

    SRS Crisafulli's Rugged Roots in Montana SRS Crisafulli's employees are a mix of deep rooted Montanan families, returned children and transplants.  It seems those who find themselves here share common goals and ...

  • Effects of Bisphenol A on antioxidant system in soybean seedling roots

    Bisphenol A (BPA), an emerging pollutant in the environment, with potential toxic effects on plants; however, the toxicity mechanism remains largely unknown. The antioxidant system plays an important role in protecting plants against the damage of stress. Here, the effects of BPA on the antioxidant system [superoxide dismutase (SOD), peroxidase (POD), catalase (CAT), ascorbic acid (AsA), ...

  • Pandemic of chronic diseases, its roots and policy development

    In this paper, an up-to-date problem of chronic diseases and mental disorders is considered at the global scale and its major socio-economic and environmental roots are identified (excessive consumerism, stressful unhealthy lifestyle, undeveloped social services, pollution). The specific institutional (public arts, sports facilities and recreational areas for systemic human development, ...

  • Effects of bisphenol a on mineral nutrition in soybean seedling roots

    Bisphenol A (BPA) is a ubiquitous chemical in the environment and is potentially harmful to plants. However, relevant studies on the effects of BPA on plants are relatively scarce. In the present work, the effects of BPA on the biomass (fresh and dry weight), absorptive function (activity and absorptive area), and mineral element levels in soybean (Glycine max L.) seedling roots treated with ...

  • Effect of Simulated Roots on the Permeability of Silty Soil

    A preliminary laboratory testing program was conducted to investigate the potential effect of vegetation on the hydraulic conductivity of soils used to construct levee structures. The testing program was conducted using a silty sand soil with a simulated root system. Testing apparatus included rigid-wall-double-ring permeameters and flexible-wall permeameters. The simulated roots were made using ...

  • Why Grasspave2 Uses Sand Based Root Zones

    Since 1982, Invisible Structures, Inc. has manufactured Grasspave2 porous paving system. Often, ISI sales staff is asked why sand is used in the Grasspave2 structure, instead of soils or organic additives mixed with the sand. Grasspave 2 utilizes a sand based root zone because it provides excellent drainage, resist compaction and provide strength where soil systems prove inadequate. Sand as a ...

  • Influence of root exudates of watermelon on fusarium oxysporum f. Sp. Niveum

    Watermelon [Citrullus lanatus (Thunb.) Matsum. & Nakai var. lanatus] production in the same field without rotation of crops leads to disease buildup and poor yields. The purpose of this research was to evaluate the influences of root exudates produced by watermelon cultivars susceptible or resistant to the pathogen Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. niveum (FON). At low concentrations of root exudates ...

  • Effect of root exudates on pentachlorophenol adsorption by soil and its main chemical components

    The relationship between root exudates (REs) and the adsorption of organic pollutants has important impacts on phytoremediation of organic contaminated soil. The effect of REs collected from alfalfa (Medicago sativa Linn.) on pentachlorophenol (PCP) adsorption by soil and its main chemical components was investigated. The experimental results indicated that the data of PCP adsorption was fitted ...

  • Root and foliar uptake, translocation and distribution of [14C]fluoranthene in pea plants

    Uptake of 14C‐labelled fluoranthene ([14C]FLT) via both roots and leaves of Pisum sativum seedlings and distribution of [14C] in plants by both acropetal and basipetal transport was evaluated. The highest [14C] level was found in root base (≈270 × 104 dpm/g dw) and the lowest level in the stem apex ( ...

  • Root-lesion Nematodes reduce yield of intolerant wheat and barley

    Root-lesion nematodes (Pratylenchus neglectus and P. thornei) are widely distributed and substantially reduce grain yields in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)-producing regions of the Pacific Northwest (PNW). The objective of this research was to determine if wheat and barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) cultivars differ in tolerance to these nematode species. Field experiments were conducted by comparing ...

  • The effect of cuo nps on ros and the cell cycle gene expression in roots of rice

    To evaluate the effect of CuO NPs on root growth, root ROS production and the expression of two genes (OsCDC2 and OsCYCD) associated with root growth of Oryza sativa (rice), the rice roots were treated with 5 mg/L CuO NPs suspension, 5 mg/L CuO BPs suspension, 0.27 mg/LCuSO4.5H2Osolution and distilled water respectively. Results indicated that CuO NPs and Cu2+ severely inhibited the elongation ...

  • Getting Down to the Roots: Why Soil Matters for Climate Stabilization (and More)

    Following 2015’s designation as the International Year of Soils by the UN Food and Agriculture Organization, soil carbon sequestration is experiencing something of a renaissance among policy and scientific circles. Farmers are also getting involved, most recently through the Climate Leaders program of the National ...

  • Root penetration through sealing layers at mine deposit sites

    To prevent acid mine drainage arising from oxygen and water penetration of sulphide-rich mine tailings, the tailings are covered with layers of dry sealing material. Plant roots have a great ability to penetrate dense materials, and if the roots are able to penetrate the sealing layer of a tailings deposit, its oxygen-shielding properties could be reduced. The objective of this study was to ...
