Protein content of grains of different size fractions in malting barley
The negative relationship between grain size (percentage >2.5mm) and protein content usually observed in barley grain samples is attributed to the presence of thin grains. The objective of this study was to determine ...
Adding genotypic differences in reproductive partitioning and grain set efficiency for estimating sorghum grain number
(Csiro Publishing, 2013-04)
Current models of sorghum crop growth predict grain number using a calculated plant growth rate around flowering and a genotype-dependent parameter that describes the relationship between both traits. Few values for this ...
Densification and enhancement of the grain boundary conductivity of gadolinium-doped barium cerate by ultra fast flash grain welding
(ELSEVIER SCI LTDOXFORD, 2012)
Doped barium cerate is a promising solid electrolyte for intermediate temperature fuel cells as a protonic conductor. However, it is difficult to sinter it to high density at a reasonable temperature. Moreover, it presents ...
Source limitations due to leaf rust (Puccinia Triticina) during grain filling period in wheat
(Csiro Publishing, 2014-02)
Late foliar diseases (especially leaf rust) reduce assimilate supply during post-anthesis, determining fewer assimilates per grain and thereby inducing grain weight reductions. Although the assimilate reduction hypothesis ...
Understanding grain yield responses to source-sink ratios during grain filling in wheat and barley under contrasting environments
A better understanding of the effects of different source?sink ratio during the grain filling period on grain growth may be relevant in order to further increase cereal grain yield. The main objective of the present work ...
Genetic dissection of grain size and grain number trade-offs in CIMMYT wheat germplasm
(Public Library of Science, 2015-03)
Grain weight (GW) and number per unit area of land (GN) are the primary components of grain yield in wheat. In segregating populations both yield components often show a negative correlation among themselves. Here we use ...
Effect of tolerance to Septoria tritici blotch on grain yield, yield components and grain quality in Argentinean wheat cultivars
Septoria tritici blotch (STB) caused by Zymoseptoria tritici (Mycosphaerella graminicola) is a major disease of wheat worldwide due to significant losses in grain yield and quality. Disease tolerance is the ability to ...
Large grain size CdTe films grown on glass substrates at low temperature

Modelling grain boundary migration during geometric dynamic recrystallization
(TAYLOR & FRANCIS LTD, 2008)
High-angle grain boundary migration is predicted during geometric dynamic recrystallization (GDRX) by two types of mathematical models. Both models consider the driving pressure due to curvature and a sinusoidal driving ...
