Journal Article

Agrovoc Terms :

competition; separation; allelopathy; a new technology

Abstract :

Abstract:A new technology is developed to separate allelopathy from competition in pot experiments. Square pots of any sizes may be used. Each pot is divided by a metal or pvc mesh (100-150 micrometer) barrier fixed from the bottom to pot surface. The barrier divides the pot into two sections filled by the same amount of soil mixture. Seeds or seedlings of the donor and receiver species can be ...

Abstract :

Abstract:Escherichia coli O157:H7 can enter into a viable but nonculturable (VBNC) state under stress conditions. Pathogens in this dormant state may escape detection if conventional methods are employed, and potentially pose serious threats to human health. Studies have shown that many intervention and preservation processes that are commonly used in the food industry may instead induce a VBN ...
