Comparison of ripening processes in intact tomato fruit and excised pericarp discs
Physiological processes characteristic of ripening in tissues of intact tomato fruit (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.) were examined in excised pericarp discs. Pericarp discs were prepared from mature-green tomato fruit and ...
Expert system supervisory control of the Wheal Jane tin concentrator
This paper reports computer simulation and modelling techniques used at the Wheal Jane tin mine in Cornwall to improve processing efficiency.
Strategies for control of eyespot (Pseudocercosporella herpotrichoides) in UK winter wheat and winter barley
This review considers strategies for control of eyespot (Pseudocercosporella herpotrichoides) in winter wheat and winter barley in the UK. Varietal resistance to eyespot may take the form of direct resistance to the growth ...
Molecular organisation of an A mating type factor of the basidiomycete fungus Coprinus-cinereus
The Aα3 and Aβ3 genes, which together constitute the A42 mating type factor of Coprinus cinereus, were isolated from a cosmid genomic library by walking 50 kb, a map distance of 0.5 units, from the closely linked metabolic ...
The Development of Eyespot on Seedling Leaf Sheaths in Winter Wheat and Winter Barley Crops Inoculated with W-type or R-type Isolates of Pseudocercosporella herpotrichoides
In 1986–88 the development of eyespot lesions in winter wheat or winter barley differed plots inoculated with W-type isolates of Pseudocercosporella herpotrichoides and plots inoculated with R-type isolates. In the spring ...
Utilization of potassium sorbate by tobacco spoilage fungi
Aspergillus, Eurotium and Penicillium species (total of 11 isolates) were examined for their ability to utilize potassium sorbate as a sole carbon source in liquid culture, under different pH and temperature conditions. ...
Effects of potassium sorbate and environmental factors on growth of tobacco spoilage fungi
Potassium sorbate was found to inhibit germination and growth of a range of spoilage fungi isolated from tobacco below pH 5. However, at and above pH 5 the efficacy of potassium sorbate was influenced by substrate composition ...
Effects of fungicide timing on the severity of eyespot on winter wheat or winter barley inoculated with W-type or R-type isolates of Pseudocercosporella herpotrichoides
Plots of winter wheat or winter barley inoculated with W-type or R-type isolates of Pseudocercosporella herpotrichoides were sprayed with carbendazim plus prochloraz either at growth stage (GS) 30/31, or at GS 33/39 (wheat) ...
Symptomless infection of Rhynchosporium secalis on leaves of winter barley
Areas of leaf blotch lesions were assessed visually on green leaves sampled from a barley crop in March and April. When these leaves were examined further, firstly on a light table and then microscopically after clearing ...
