  • Case study - Growers Transplanting, Inc., Salinas, California, USA

    “Sidel Systems approached us about six years ago with a proposal to help reduce our natural gas heating bills by installing one of their SRU condensers. I was very skeptical. I had heard claims from vendors for everything from retractable curtains to boiler tubulators and found them to be greatly exaggerated with respect to fuel savings. However, two years ago when we needed to replace a ...

  • Water use efficiency and productivity of habanero pepper (Capsicum chinense Jacq.) based on two transplanting dates

    Habanero pepper production was assessed with drip irrigation and plastic mulch, based on two transplanting dates. The objectives of the study were: (i) to evaluate the effect of two transplanting dates and the use of plastic mulch on water productivity and habanero pepper fruit yield under drip irrigation conditions; and (ii) to determine the profitability and economic viability of the product ...

  • Influence of maturity and storage conditions on some mineral contents of lettuce

    The effects of maturity and storage conditions on mineral contents of lettuce were studied. Samples of lettuce transplanted 50, 60 and 70 days after sowing were collected from an experimental farm in Nigeria. The samples were stored in the laboratory in a polythene bag of 2 mm thickness and in an open shelf and analysed every two days using the AOAC nutritional guidelines. A one–way ANOVA showed ...

  • Stud case study

    A major vegetable grower in Lantokia, Fiji, using soilless culture systems began to trial Amnite A-100. His crops consisted principally of lettuce, tomatoes, capsicums, cucumbers, zucchinis and melons. Before the trials they had been plagued with root diseases, mosaic virus and insect attack, control of which required constant use of pesticides and ultraviolet lighting. The first trials commenced ...

  • Relationship between water-soluble carbohydrates in fall and spring and vigor of spring regrowth in orchardgrass

    To clarify relationships among factors associated with winter stress in orchardgrass (Dactylis glomerata L.), water-soluble carbohydrate (WSC) concentration, resistance to snow mold, and tolerance to prolonged snow cover were evaluated under both conditions of natural infection and chemical control of snow mold. A total of 18 cultivars from Japan, Europe, and the United States were transplanted ...

  • Effects of peat moss substitution with arboretum and greenhouse waste compost for use in container media

    Plugs of impatiens (Impatiens walleriana Hook.f.), salvia (Salvia splendens Sellow ex Roem. & Schult.), and vinca (Catharanthus roseus (L.) G. Don) were transplanted into containers filled with commercial Sphagnum peat moss plus perlite medium (Sunshine Mix #1) or arboretum and greenhouse waste compost (CT), Sphagnum peat moss (PS), and perlite (PE) medium at percentages of (by vol.) 50:50 ...

  • Heterosis in switchgrass: Biomass yield in swards

    Improving the biomass yield of switchgrass (Panicum virgatum L.) will improve its utility as a dedicated energy crop by increasing both its net and total energy yield per hectare. In a previous space-transplanted study, midparent heterosis for biomass yield was reported for population and specific F1 hybrids of the lowland-tetraploid cultivar Kanlow and the upland-tetraploid cultivar Summer. ...

  • Plant regeneration from zygotic embryo-derived embryogenic cell suspension cultures of Ranunculus kazusensis

    Culture conditions for high frequency plant regeneration via somatic embryogenesis from cell suspension cultures of Ranunculus kazusensis are described. Zygotic embryos formed white nodular structures and pale-yellow calluses at a frequency of 84.9% when cultured on half-strength Schenk and Hildebrandt (SH) medium supplemented with 0.1 mg l−1 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D). However, ...
