Variation in harvest index of modern spring barley, oat and wheat cultivars adapted to northern growing conditions
SUMMARY Increased harvest index (HI) has been one of the principal factors contributing to genetic yield improvements in spring barley (Hordeum vulgare L.), oat (Avena sativa L.) and wheat (TriticumExpand

Plant growth regulators to manipulate cereal growth in northern growing conditions
Plant growth regulators (PGRs) are exogenously applied chemical compounds that regulate stem elongation through inhibiting biosynthesis of gibberellins or releasing ethylene. PGRs have been and areExpand

Foliar applications of alcohols failed to enhance growth and yield of C3 crops
Abstract Nonomura and Benson, Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci., 89, 1992, 9794–9798, applied methanol to foliage of numerous C3 crops in the warm and arid growing conditions of Arizona, and established markedExpand

Endosperm structure affects the malting quality of barley (Hordeum vulgare L.).
Twenty-seven barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) samples collected from growing sites in Scandinavia in 2001 and 2002 were examined to study the effect of endosperm structure on malting behavior. SamplesExpand

NMR metabolomics of ripened and developing oilseed rape (Brassica napus) and turnip rape (Brassica rapa).
The oilseeds of the commercially important oilseed rape (Brassica napus) and turnip rape (Brassica rapa) were investigated with (1)H NMR metabolomics. The compositions of ripened (cultivated in fieldExpand

Drought Effect on Grain Number and Grain Weight at Spike and Spikelet Level in Six-Row Spring Barley
Water is the primary regulator of yield formation in cereals. The effect of water limitation and its timing on development of yield components were studied in detail at spike and spikelet level inExpand

Plant Growth Regulator Effects on Spring Cereal Root and Shoot Growth
Plant growth regulators (PGR) shorten the straw of cereals, but their effects on other traits of plant stand structure have been inconsistent. To arrive at an assessment of whole-plant response,Expand

Hidden viability risks in the use of farm-saved small-grain seed
SUMMARY Agriculture must provide sustainable food security and economic development to meet future challenges; new cultivars and the use of quality seed will be key components of this. The use ofExpand

Germination and grain vigour of naked oat in response to grain moisture at harvest
Naked oat grain, which is free from lemma and palea, has high nutritional quality, but the unprotected grain is prone to mechanical damages caused by combine harvesting. Naked oats were grown for 3Expand

Plant growth regulators to manipulate oat stands
Plant growth regulators (PGRs) are exogenously applied chemicals that alter plant metabolism, cell division, cell enlargement, growth and development by regulating plant hormones or other biologicalExpand
