The development and evaluation of an air pressurised fluid drill

, : The development and evaluation of an air pressurised fluid drill. Acta Horticulturae (72): 109-120

The design and operation of a pneumatically-operated pressurised fluid drill is described, together with experiments which show that very little damage was sustained by the seeds during drilling even when seeds with radicles longer than 10 mm were used. Experiments also showed that the spacing distribution of several crops obtained with this drill is comparable with conventional thin line seeding drills.

In a field experiment in 1991-94 at Junagadh (Gujarat), garlic (Allium sativum) was irrigated at irrigation water:cumulative pan evaporation (IW:CPE) ratios of 1.0, 1.2 or 1.4, and given 25, 50 or 75 kg each of N and P2O5/ha. Groundnuts (Arachis h...

We investigated in two tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum) plant lines (wildtype or antisense mutant) whether impairment in expression of the plasma membrane aquaporin gene (NtAQP1) affects the arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungal colonisation pattern or th...
