Stalk Rot of Sugar Beet Caused by Fusarium solani on the Pacific Coast.
In 2006, signs of stalk blight (2) have been noticed on sugar beet (Beta vulgaris L.) vegetation from roots produced in Oregon that have been being grown for seed manufacturing in a greenhouse in Salinas, CA utilizing Salinas Valley soil. Symptoms included vascular and cortical browning, necrosis, and dying of seed stalks. Isolations have been […]
Functional-structural plant modelling: a new versatile tool in crop science.
Plants react to their atmosphere and to administration interventions by adjusting physiological capabilities and construction. Functional-structural plant fashions (FSPM), mix the illustration of three-dimensional (3D) plant construction with chosen physiological capabilities. An FSPM consists of an architectural half (plant construction) and a course of half (plant functioning). The first offers with (i) the varieties of organs which can be initiated and the best way these are related (topology), (ii) co-ordination in organ enlargement dynamics, and (iii) geometrical variables (e.g. leaf angles, leaf curvature). The course of half might embody any physiological or bodily course of that impacts plant progress and growth (e.g. photosynthesis, carbon allocation). […]
