Effect of peat types and frequency of watering on Poinsettia

, : Effect of peat types and frequency of watering on Poinsettia. Acta Horticulturae (37): 2038-2045

Christmas-flowering poinsettias were grown singly in 12.5-cm plastic pots. Plants grown in wood fen peat were nearly as vigorous as those grown in the standard sphagnum peat compost and had as high a nutrient status. Observations conducted afterwards in centrally-heated rooms indicated that peat type had no effect on plant longevity.

Most cases of early onset torsion dystonia are caused by a 3-bp deletion (GAG) in the coding region of the TOR1A gene (alias DYT1, DQ2), resulting in loss of a glutamic acid in the carboxy terminal of the encoded protein, torsin A. TOR1A and its h...

Data are presented on the variability and correlations of eight components of yield in twelve F2 hybrids, the paternal parent being Kosutska in each case. Detenicka Zora x Kosutska and Lutescens 230 x Kosutska showed greater variability than their...

Histochemical localization of alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity was studied in livers of 12 patients of biliary atresia using lead citrate medium by light microscopy and EM. EM observations revealed that, in the liver taken at radical operation,...

The availability of lysine in sunflower seed oilmeal was estimated with rats. Estimations based on empty weight gain were lower than those based on bodyweight gain. The latter method was considered to overestimate availability owing to variation i...
