Optimal environment for set and development of sweet pepper fruit


, : Optimal environment for set and development of sweet pepper fruit. Acta Horticulturae (42): 55-62

Temperature was found to influence the fruit set as well as the shape and size of sweet pepper California Wonder. Low night temperatures (8-10 deg C) increased the percentage of fruit set and of parthenocarpic fruit development. High day-time temperatures (20-24 deg ) and low light intensity (30% shade), mainly at the early stage of flower development, promoted flower drop. This emphasizes the importance of ventilation in plastic tunnels.

Nitroglycerin (0.3 mg) was administered sublingually to 14 patients undergoing cardiac catheterization, and pressure waves compared in the ascending aorta and brachial artery. After nitroglycerin, ascending aortic systolic pressure fell in all cas...

A procedure for the purification of subnanomole levels of polypeptides has been developed. Reversed-phase high performance liquid chromatography on short (10 cm or less) microbore (1-2 mm internal diameter) columns has been used to fractionate and...

We investigate the evolution of the stellar structure, when a star fills and overflows its Roche lobe in a circular, equatorial orbit around a supermassive black hole. The stellar mass-loss time-scale is anticipated to be long compared with the dy...

Endothelin-1 is a potent vasoconstrictor which is thought to be involved in many human disease states. We have developed a series of indole non-peptide endothelin antagonists which display nanomolar receptor affinity. The representative compound f...
