Comparison of peat and bark-humus in greenhouse and outdoor vegetable culture

, : Comparison of peat and bark-humus in greenhouse and outdoor vegetable culture. Acta Horticulturae (26): 69-73

Trials were carried out with tomato, silver onion, radish, cabbage, leek, celeriac, carrot, pea, cauliflower, fennel, marjoram and spearmint to study the effect on the field and greenhouse yields of these crops of the substrates peat, bark humus, sand/bark humus, sand and soil. Tomatoes gave higher yields when grown in peat or bark humus than in soil. In a warm summer, field crops grown on peat at 2 sites gave higher yields than greenhouse crops.

Its waters are colored by humic material from a flax swamp and the mean carbon:nitrogen ratio of the sediments lies in the range for dystrophic lakes. Thermal stratification is v...

Wiesner, Andreas; Losen, Susanne; Kopacek, Petr; Weise, Christoph; Goetz, Peter, 1997: Isolated apolipophorin III from Galleria mellonella stimulates the immune reactions of this insect. Apolipophorin III (apoLp-III) was isolated from the haemolymph of last instar larvae of Galleria mellonella. The ultraviolet (u.v.) spectrum and the N-terminal amino acid sequence reveal high similarities with the apoLp-III from Manduca sexta. The...

Anonymous, 2011: Two genes, rif15 and rif16, of the rifamycin biosynthetic gene cluster in Amycolatopsis mediterranei likely encode a transketolase and a P45 monooxygenase, respectively, both essential for the conversion of rifamycin SV into B. Amycolatopsis mediterranei produces an important antibiotic rifamycin, the biosynthesis of which involves many unusual modifications. Previous work suggested a putative P45 enzyme encoded by rif16 within the rifamycin biosynthetic gene cluster (ri...

This research compared adolescent smokers (n = 45) and nonsmokers (n = 35) on ratings of certainty about receiving delayed rewards during a delay discounting procedure. Consistent with a previous finding [Patak, M., Reynolds, B., 2007. Question-b...
