Age of No-Till System and Nitrogen Management on Common Bean Nutrition and Yield
(Agronomy Journal, 2014-05-01) [Artigo]
In the no-till (NT) system, N availability may change depending on the number of years since NT was adopted. Thus, an experiment was conducted in a Typic Rhodudalf in Botucatu, Sao Paulo, Brazil, to evaluate the influence ...
Fruit quality in the peach and nectarine with application of hydrogenated cyanamide and mineral oil
(Revista Ciência Agronômica, 2014-09-01) [Artigo]
This work evaluated the quality of the fruit in peach and nectarine cultivars with and without the application of hydrogenated cyanamide and mineral oil, for two production cycles (2009 and 2010). The experiment was carried ...
Physico-chemical properties of starches isolated from potato cultivars grown in soils with different phosphorus availability
(Journal Of The Science Of Food And Agriculture, 2015) [Artigo]
Starch is the major component of potato tubers, amounting approximately to 150-200 g kg (-1) of the tuber weight. Starch is considered to be a major factor for the functionality of the potato in food applications. This ...
Phosphorus Uptake, Use Efficiency, and Response of Potato Cultivars to Phosphorus Levels
(Potato Research, 2015) [Artigo]
Utilization of potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) cultivars with greater phosphorus (P) efficiency and response to application of this nutrient is essential to maximize yield, mainly in tropical soils that usually have low P ...
Foliar or soil applications of silicon alleviate water-deficit stress of potato plants
(Agronomy Journal, 2014-11-01) [Artigo]
Root-supplied Si is thought to play a role in alleviating the effects of water-deficit stress in several crops. However, little information is known about the contribution of Si, especially foliar application, in the ...
Root morphology and phosphorus uptake by potato cultivars grown under deficient and sufficient phosphorus supply
(Scientia Horticulturae, 2014-12-17) [Artigo]
Information regarding the characteristics that affect P-uptake capacity may assist in the selection of more adapted potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) cultivars and more adequate fertilization management for each cultivar. This ...
