Yield and nutritional requirements of cassava in response to potassium fertilizer in the second cycle
(Journal of Plant Nutrition, 2017-12-14) [Artigo]
Potassium (K) is one of the most absorbed nutrients by cassava because it acts on the synthesis and starch accumulation in the storage roots. Here, we show that K application at the beginning of the second vegetative cycle ...
Nitrogênio no crescimento da planta e na qualidade de raízes da mandioquinha-salsa
(Ciencia Rural, 2016-02-01) [Artigo]
Nitrogen (N) is the second most absorbed nutrient by Arracacha. However, there are still doubts about the influence that this nutrient can have on plant growth and the quality of the storage roots. Thus, the aim of this ...
Chemical composition of potato tubers: the effect of cultivars and growth conditions
(Journal of Food Science and Technology, 2017-07-01) [Artigo]
The aim of the study involved evaluating the chemical composition of tubers of five potato cultivars that were grown under the same cultural practices in soils with low, medium, and high availability of phosphorus. The ...
Dry matter accumulation and mineral nutrition of arracacha in response to nitrogen fertilization
(Pesquisa Agropecuaria Brasileira, 2015-08-01) [Artigo]
The objective of this work was to evaluate the effect of nitrogen fertilization on the growth and yield of arracacha (Arracacia xanthorrhiza), as well as on the plant's nutrient uptake, distribution, and removal. The ...
Influence of nitrogen fertilization on the characteristics of potato starch
(Australian Journal of Crop Science, 2018-03-01) [Artigo]
This study evaluated the effect of nitrogen fertilization rates on the characteristics of potato starch. The experimental design was randomized block with four replications. The treatments were composed of four rates of N ...
Peruvian carrot (Arracacia xanthorrhiza Bancroft) as raw material for producing special native starches
(Australian Journal of Crop Science, 2016-01-01) [Artigo]
The use of natural starches in food or non-food industries is difficult, as there are no starches with essential properties for a particular application. Thus, it is important to identify different alternative starch sources ...
