A note on estimation of quality parameters in perennial ryegrass by near infrared reflectance spectroscopy
The objective of this study was to assess near infrared reflectance spectroscopy (NIRS) as a rapid method for estimating quality parameters in perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.) and to evaluateExpand
Phenological Effects on Forage Quality of Salsola arbuscula, Salsola orientalis and Salsola tomentosa in Three Habitats in the Central Part of Iran
Among species, Salsola arbuscula had less forage quality in comparison with two other species and the first stage of growth, vegetative stage, had higher quality and was the best time for grazing and reaching more desirable livestock response. Expand
Evaluation of selection indices for drought tolerance of corn (Zea mays L.) hybrids
It seems likely that Stress Tolerance Index, Geometric Mean Productivity, and Harmonic Mean indices, which showed the highest correlation with grain yield under both optimal and stress conditions, can be used as the best indices for maize breeding programs to introduce drought tolerant hybrids.

Assessment of Genetic Diversity in Iranian Fennels Using ISSR Markers
This study revealed that ISSR marker could properly separate these ecotypes based on geographical distribution and similarity in climates and showed the wide genetic diversity among Iranian fennels. Expand
Studies on seed and forage yield in 10 populations of sainfoin (Onobrychis sativa) grown as spaced plants and swards
DM yield was positively correlated with seed yield, plant height, stem number and inflorescences length,while seed yield had positive and significant relationships with 1000-grain weight, plant Height, stemNumber and inflorescence length. Expand
Extraction of Antioxidants and Caffeine from Green Tea (Camelia sinensis) Leaves: Kinetics and Modeling
The results showed that the intra-particle diffusion was the rate-governing step of the extraction process, and the slow stage diffusivities of these components at their optimum extraction temperatures were calculated. Expand
Genetic diversity analysis of agro-morphological and quality traits in populations of sainfoin (Onobrychis sativa)
In order to study the variations and relations among morphological and quality traits, 12 populations (accessions) of sainfoin (Onobrychis sativa), were assessed under sward growth condition usingExpand
Effect of salinity on growth, ion content and water status of glasswort (Salicornia herbacea L.)
Salinity is one of the major environmental stresses that limit plant growth and productivity. Glasswort (Salicornia herbacea L.) is one of the native halophytic plants of Iran that widely spread inExpand
Genetic Diversity of Salvia Species Assessed by ISSR and RAPD Markers
The genus Salvia includes an enormous assemblage of nearly 1,000 species dispersed around the world and there is an immediate requirement to evaluate the diversity of its wild populations. Expand
Genetic variation and correlation among yield and quality traits in cocksfoot (Dactylis glomerata L.)
It was concluded that there was significant variation and moderate heritability for most traits in the cocksfoot populations evaluated to improve yield and quality traits. Expand
