Influence of temperature, photoperiod and container size on the growth rate and development of tomato plants in growing-rooms

, : Influence of temperature, photoperiod and container size on the growth rate and development of tomato plants in growing-rooms. Acta Horticulturae (51): 77-87

The factors investigated were photoperiod (12 h versus 16 h), temperature (a constant 21 deg C versus a differential day/night regime with a mean of 21 deg ), and container size (use of a 10.8 cm container continuously versus a 3.5 cm container for the first 10 days and thereafter a 10.8 cm container). Growth curves based on dry weight samples at 3-4 day intervals showed an overall increase of 43% with the 16-h photoperiod after 20 days.

During the regeneration of Drosophila imaginal discs, cellular identities can switch fate in a process known as transdetermination. For leg-to-wing transdetermination, the underlying mechanism involves morphogens such as Wingless that, when activa...

Antioxidants have been proposed to have positive effects on human health, and are found in high concentrations in fruits and vegetables. The content of antioxidants is known to vary with preharvest and postharvest factors. Baby spinach was field-c...
