  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • What are the root causes of wear in industrial machinery?

    Over the years we’ve published a wide range of material designed to help you protect your assets and prevent machine failure, through implementing the right maintenance programme and taking appropriate action to fix issues before they manifest into larger and often more complex problems. However, ...

  • Difference in the root structure of hyperaccumulator Thlaspi caerulescens and non-hyperaccumulator Thlaspi arvense

    The primary root structure of Zn/Cd hyperaccumulator Thlaspi caerulescens was compared with the root anatomy of closely related non-accumulator Thlaspi arvense. The most striking structure formed close to the root tip in T. caerulescens, but not in T. arvense, is the peri-endodermal layer of cells with irregularly thickened inner tangential walls. This layer observed in some species of ...

  • Root to shoot transfer and distribution of endosulfan in the wetland macrophyte Bidens laevis L.

    Endosulfan (EDS) is genotoxic in somatic cells of Bidens laevis and reproduction could be affected if translocated from roots to flower buds. Hydroponic experiments were conducted to quantify this transfer. While the[0] root uptake of [14C] EDS and its transfer to aboveground tissues was relatively low, the resulting average flower buds concentration (1.01 ± 0.76 ng/g) after 30 d of exposure ...

  • A southern root-knot nematode resistance QTL linked to the T-Locus in soybean

    Southern root-knot nematode [RKI; Meloidogyne incognita (Kofoid and White) Chitwood] is an important soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.] pest. When RKI resistance was introgressed from the highly resistant, gray pubescent breeding line G93-9009 into moderately resistant, tawny pubescent cultivars BoggsRR and BenningRR, higher than expected proportions of two advanced backcross populations had gray ...

  • Aboveground to root biomass ratios in pea and vetch after treatment with organic fertilizer

    Some growth parameters of pea (cv. Pleven 4) and vetch (cv. Obrazets 666) after treatment with organic fertilizer were studied in a field trial carried out at the Institute of Forage Crops, Pleven, Bulgaria. Humustim as organic fertilizer was applied through presowing treatment of seeds, treatment during vegetation and combination between both, at different doses. Ratios of aboveground weight to ...

  • Response of native Southeastern U.S. Legumes to root-knot nematodes

    Identification of forage legumes well adapted to the southeastern United States is complicated by climatic, soil, and biotic factors. Among the pests that impact forage legume persistence are root-knot nematodes (RKNs) (Meloidogyne spp.). We hypothesized that legumes native to the region should have higher levels of resistance to RKN species that are common in this region due to long-term natural ...

  • Effects of bisphenol a on key enzymes in cellular respiration of soybean seedling roots

    Environmental endocrine disrupter–bisphenol A (BPA) is ubiquitous in the environment, with potential toxic effects on plants. Previous studies found a significant effect of BPA on levels of mineral nutrients in plant roots, but the underlying mechanism remains unknown. To determine how BPA influences root mineral nutrients, the effects of BPA (1.5, 3.0, 6.0, 12.0, 24.0, 48.0 and 96.0 mg L−1) ...

  • Relationship between root characteristics of peanut in hydroponics and pot studies

    A large root system can be an important character for drought tolerance. Measuring root characteristics in soil medium is tedious, time consuming, and labor intensive. The objective of this study was to determine the association between root characteristics of peanut (Arachis hypogaea L.) grown in hydroponics and in pot experiments. Twelve peanut genotypes were planted in a randomized complete ...
