Transplant shock was induced by applying a range of soil water contents to unstored and cold-stored two-yearold (2+0) bareroot Douglas-fir seedlings graded by root volume. Moisture stress had the greatest influence on
morphological characteristics commonly associated with transplant shock. Terminal growth, lateral growth, stem diameter growth, and needle length increased...
Three months following sowing, Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii (Mirb.) Franco) seedlings were transplanted into pots with controlled-release fertilizer (CRF) applied at rates of 0, 8, 16, and 24 g/2200 cm3 soil as a single uniform layer beneath the root system. Seedlings were destructively harvested periodically, and roots were divided into vertical...
This manual describes the rules for reforesting after harvest of small woodlands, gives guidance for the decisions the landowner must make, and gives step-by-step instructions for planting and taking care of seedlings.
Until recently, occurrence of milk fever (MF) has been attributed to prepartum
calcium intake. However, researchers in Iowa have concluded that high prepartum dietary
potassium (K) is the major cause of MF. Potassium concentrations have been increasing
on manure fertilized soils over the last 20 years. Grasses grown on these...
Although the occurrence of ketosis is a postpartum phenomenon, recent studies have
focused on the prepartum period as key in the development of the disorder. Indicators of
prepartum energy status, such as depressed dry matter intake (DMI) and elevated plasma
non-esterified fatty acid (NEFA) concentrations have been associated with the...
Since the use of N, N-diethylaniline hydrochloride in the chlorination
of uric acid with phosphoryl chloride seems to promote the
reaction, a study of the effect of other salts of nitrogenous bases in
the chlorination of uric acid was undertaken. When N, N-diethylaniline
hydrochloride was used in lieu of the...
The goal of these experiments was to ensile combinations of shrimp or crab waste
with perennial ryegrass straw and analyze it for silage quality and ruminal degradability.
The rapid deterioration of seafood wastes required initial preservation prior to ensiling
to minimize odor production and protein breakdown. Eight experiments were conducted...
The effect of frozen storage time on the composition
of the cell wall polysaccharide (CWP) of muskmelon (Cucumis
melo) cultivars at different stages of maturity was investigated.
Changes in composition, firmness, drip loss, and
color of Cantaloupe and Honey Dew melon flesh were determined
at three stages of maturity and...
