Effect of hydrogen on soybean root growth in a subsurface solution.
(Pesquisa Agropecuaria Brasileira, Brasilia, v.30, n.2, p.255-261, fev. 1995., 2011)
Carotenoid biosynthesis in daucus carota
(Springer New York, 2016)
© Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2016. Carrot (Daucus carota) is one of the most important vegetable cultivated worldwide and the main source of dietary provitamin A. Contrary to other plants, almost all ...
Deep rooting of rainfed and irrigated orange trees in Brazil
Fine roots of orange trees reached a depth of approx. 6 m in a sandy tropical soil. Root area index was more responsive to irrigation than leaf area index. Although the crucial role of deep rooting on the hydraulic functioning ...
Development of tuberous cassava roots under different tillage systems: Descriptive anatomy
The interaction between the roots of cassava (Manihot esculenta Crantz) and soil physical properties has previously been analyzed. This interaction results in differences in production of plant material and in the ...
Produ̧ão de mudas de lamiaceae para o cultivo hidropnico: Qualidade de enraizamento
Apex and basal cuttings of Lamiaceae plants (Mentha crispa L., Mentha piperita L. and Salvia officinalis L.) were submitted to rooting assay. The effects of water, H3BO3, KH2PO4, ZnSO 4 and KNO3 solutions on the formation ...
Flavonoids modify root growth and modulate expression of SHORT-ROOT and HD-ZIP III
(Elsevier B. V., 2015-09-01)
Flavonoids are a class of distinct compounds produced by plant secondary metabolism that inhibit or promote plant development and have a relationship with auxin transport. We showed that, in terms of root development, ...
The effect of root exudates on root architecture in Arabidopsis thaliana
Root architecture is of key importance for plant nutrition and performance. It is known that root architecture is determined by genetics and environmental conditions. The aim of the present study was to evaluate if root ...
Seasonal Induction of Cluster Roots in Embothrium coccineum J.R. Forst. & G. Forst. in the Field: Factors that Regulate their Development
(Instituto de Investigaciones Agropecuarias, INIA, 2010)
A split-pot experiment with sorghum to test a root water uptake partitioning model
Correct modeling of root water uptake partitioning over depth is an important issue in hydrological and crop growth models. Recently a physically based model to describe root water uptake was developed at single root scale ...
Fine root isotropy in Eucalyptus grandis plantations. Towards the prediction of root length densities from root counts on trench walls
The objectives of the study were to assess changes in fine root anisotropy and specific root lengths throughout the development of Eucalyptus grandis ( W. Hill ex Maiden) plantations and to establish a predictive model of ...
