Studying the soil moisture distribution over time in a given soil profile is the object of the present study. The way the soil moisture gets distributed over soil profile depends particularly on the soil texture and on the soil suction gradients developed. However, it changes continuously over time for a given soil depth. The method of determining the soil moisture distribution over tim ...

The study was carried out in two particular areas of “The Field of Kosovo”, Komoran and Vushtri, both significantly representing the region. A meteorological station was set up in each location. The meteorological stations were equipped with the necessary devices to measure the sun radiation, relative humidity, wind speed and air temperature. A particular computer program was installed ...

The influence of season on the rate of multiplication on in vitro culture of peach rootstock GF- 677 was investigated on Murashige and Skoog (MS) media, supplemented with GA3 0.1 mg/L and IAA 0.1mg/l. Benzyladenine (BAP) at concentrations 1mg/l was used in the multiplication stage and 1mg/l IBA in the stage of rooting. Shoot-tip and nodal segment explants were collected from 5 years old ...

Heavy metals enter in lagoons from pedo-geological background as well as from man-made sources through several pathways. Heavy metals released into the water are eventually accumulated in the sediments and in the lagoon’s aquatic organisms, especially in mussels, which act as recorders of heavy metals pollution event. This study aims to contribute in (i) quantifying the origin and degre ...

The micropropagation of Paulownia tomentosa (Thunb.) Steud. was achieved by culturing nodal explants in MS medium through adding growth regulators: 6-benzylamino purine (BAP), indole-3-butyric acid (IBA) alone or combined in order to initiate shoot bud. Shoot proliferation was induced by the mean of MS medium containing different concentrations of BAP (1or 2 mg L-1) alone or in combinat ...

Conventional method of propagation of pomegranate is time consuming and tiresome, and it does not ensure disease free and healthy plants. In vitro technique is the only prospect of plant tissue culture that has the potential to circumvent these problems. An efficient in vitro propagation is described for pomegranate using shoot tips and nodal explants. The influence of two basal medium, ...

Competition of plants for capture of essential resources for plant growth (light, water and nutrients) is a critical process in natural, semi-natural and agricultural ecosystems. Weed management is one of the key elements of most agricultural systems because it is evaluated that about 10% of agricultural production worldwide is lost because of the competition effect of weeds. This issue ...

Maintaining a healthy rumen ecosystem is crucial to avoid systemic disorders in cattle, but also critical to ensure that milk and meat are produced from healthy animals in an efficient and cost-effective manner. In fact, today’s intensive management systems of cattle typically encourage the inclusion of large amounts of easily degradable carbohydrates in the diet to support rapid weight ...
