A field experiment was conducted to evaluate sugarcane varieties based on their radiation use efficiencies (RUE) at the Sugarcane Research Institute, Uda Walawe, Sri Lanka. Sugarcane was grown under irrigated (soil water potential >−0.05 MPa) and rain-fed conditions in a split-plot design. Biomass accumulation, canopy development, leaf angle and radiation(More)
A combined experimental and computational study was developed to evaluate and understand the energetics and reactivity of formyl and methoxy α-naphthalene derivatives. Static bomb combustion calorimetry and the Calvet microcalorimetry were the experimental techniques used to determine the standard (p(o)=0.1 MPa) molar enthalpies of formation, in the liquid(More)
Water deficit is one of the environmental factors that cause a great reduction in the upland rice grain yield. The objective of this study was to evaluate genotypes of upland rice with broad genetic diversity for tolerance to this stress and to identify secondary traits for evaluation of this tolerance. Sixty-four genotypes were evaluated during two years(More)
The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of soil moisture deficits on the growth of root system and its effect on soil moisture utilization in sugarcane to identify relationship of root growth with drought tolerance of sugarcane varieties. An experiment with eight sugarcane varieties under rain-fed and irrigated conditions in a split-plot(More)
