Purple tomatoes (Lycopersicon esculemtum) were bred by incorporating
genes that result in anthocyanin production in the skin of fruits. These genes
originally came from related wild species as no naturally occurring genes encoding
fruit anthocyanin expression are known within the cultivated species. By
combining Aft or Abg with atv or...
The purpose of this research was to develop tools and germplasm for the production of tomatoes (Solanum lycopersicum L.) with high fruit phenolics without the use of genetic engineering. A candidate gene analysis was undertaken to identify genes regulating anthocyanin biosynthesis in tomato fruit (Aft, Abg, atv, and Purple Smudge)....
The closed insulated pallet system (CIPS) was evaluated for growth, yield, and
fruit quality of tomato genotypes with determinate growth habit. Plants were irrigated
with several levels of sodium chloride (NaCl) salinized water. Tomato growth and yield
were significantly greater in CIPS than in conventional surface-irrigated containers,
regardless of irrigation...
Seven winter wheats were evaluated for plant height, the components
of yield and yield in a diallel cross at Pendleton, Oregon and
Lind, Washington. An additional parent was added to the diallel cross
at Pullman, Washington. Two levels of nitrogen and five replications
were utilized at each of the locations....
Tomato [Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.] plants are chilling sensitive and do not
naturally accumulate glycinebetaine (GB), a metabolite that functions as a stress
protectant in plants. While GB can increase tolerance of tomato plants to salt and
drought stresses, its effect on chilling tolerance has not been examined. To evaluate
A farm level comparative study was conducted to
determine the extend to which the production component of
the tomato industry of Panama is competitive with its
American producer counterparts in California. In addition,
processing costs, and marketing conditions/costs are factors
that determine a competitive potential. The objective of
The phytohormones auxin and cytokinin control plant development through a complex network of interactions which include synergistic, additive, and opposite effects whose mechanisms are unknown. The auxin-insensitive diageotropica (dgt) mutant provided a tool to dissect the relationship between auxin- and cytokinin-induced responses in tomato. Morphological, physiological, and molecular data support...
