Growth of Aechmea fasciata plants in function of substrate base saturation and fertirrigation methods
Bromeliads are plants that have a high variability in the fertilization possibilities. This is due to the capacity of absorption of water and nutrients by their foliar trichomes and root system. This research was conducted ...
Granulated Coconut Fiber And Rice Husk Substrates For The Production Of 'oso Grande' Strawberry
(Inst AgronomicoCampinas, 2016)
Uso de biossólido como substrate para produção de mudas de eucalipto
The objective of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of the biosolids used as substrate component for seedlings production of Eucalyptus. This way, different proportions of biosolid/carbonized rice (80/20, 70/30, ...
Biological substrates: Green alternatives in trace elemental preconcentration and speciation analysis
Biological substrates have been introduced in Analytical Chemistry to encourage the development of environment-friendly methodologies. This kind of substrates offers advantages such as low cost, very simple production and ...
Spent Oyster Mushroom Substrate in a Mix with Organic Soil for Plant Pot Cultivation
(Institut de Recherche pour le Développement, 2008-12)
Disposal of spent mushroom substrates can pose a problem to the environment. The reuse in crop production by its recycling as an ingredient of growing mixes would provide an environmentally safe disposition. We show the ...
ROOTING OF JOJOBA CUTTINGS: THE EFFECT OF CLONE, SUBSTRATE COMPOSITION AND TEMPERATURE
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, 1998)
Propagation of jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis (Link) Schneider) clones for commercial use is expensive. An investigation was conducted to improve the efficiency of this process. Rooting of semi-hardwood stem cuttings of ...
The effect of substrate diameter and incline on locomotion in an arboreal frog
(Company of Biologists, 2013-08)
Frogs are characterized by a unique morphology associated with their saltatory lifestyle. Yet, arboreal species show morphological specializations relative to other ecological specialists allowing them to hold on to narrow ...
Controlling the preferential orientation in sol-gel prepared CaCu3Ti4O12 thin films by LaAlO3 and NdGaO3 substrates
(Elsevier Science, 2016-11)
Researchers have paid considerable attention to CaCu3Ti4O12 (CCTO) due to the colossal dielectric constant over a wide range of frequency and temperature. Despite of the growing number of works dealing with CCTO, there ...
