The effect of sucker type and size on the growth and development of banana (Musa ABB group)

, : The effect of sucker type and size on the growth and development of banana (Musa ABB group). Acta Horticulturae (53): 341-347

Three types of suckers (sword, maiden and bit) of 3 sizes (small, medium and large) of the local banana Alata Kwadu were compared during a 23-week growth period. Sword suckers were the most suitable type of planting material, emerging early, giving the largest leaf area and the most vigorous plant growth. They were, however, poor in suckering themselves, and thus inferior to maiden suckers for multiplying new clonal material. Bits were very poor in growth and development.

Most reported cases of nasopharyngeal laceration following impingement during nasotracheal intubation involved tube insertion via the right nostril. We postulated that recesses on the posterior wall of the nasopharynx might be associated with tube...

Dehydrins are one of several proteins that have been specifically associated with qualitative and quantitative changes in cold hardiness. Recent evidence indicates that the regulation of dehydrin genes by low nonfreezing temperature (LT) and short...
