Rapid assay for determination of water soluble quaternary ammonium compounds
SummaryThe periodide method for quaternary ammonium compounds (QAC) analysis was modified to permit rapid screening of numerous replicate plant samples. This procedure provides a valuable tool forExpand
Multiplex Fluorogenic Real-Time PCR for Detection and Quantification of Escherichia coli O157:H7 in Dairy Wastewater Wetlands
Results indicate that the developed PCR assay is suitable for quantitative determination of E. coli O157:H7 in environmental samples and represents a considerable advancement in pathogen quantification in different ecosystems. Expand
Tolerance of vegetable crops to salinity
The salt tolerance of vegetables has been condensed and reported in a uniform format based on the best available data and how different measurements of salinity in solution cultures, sand cultures, and field studies can be reconciled to a common basis. Expand
Evaluation of salt tolerance in rice genotypes by multiple agronomic parameters
Cluster group ranking of genotypes based on multiple agronomic characters can be applied in salt tolerance breeding to evaluate salt tolerance and may have great advantage over conventional methods. Expand
Mineral Nutrient Acquisition and Response by Plants Grown in Saline Environments
Plants acquire mineral nutrients from their native soil environments. Most crop plants are glycophytes and have evolved under conditions of low soil salinity. Consequently, they have developedExpand
Detection and quantification of Escherichia coli O157:H7 in environmental samples by real-time PCR.
The real-time PCR-based assay enabled sensitive and rapid quantification of E.coli O157:H7 in soil and other environmental samples and represents considerable advancement in the area of pathogen quantification for risk assessment and transport studies. Expand
Salinity–mineral nutrient relations in horticultural crops
The relations between salinity and mineral nutrition of horticultural crops are extremely complex and a complete understanding of the intricate interactions involved would require the input from aExpand
Characterization of Microbial Communities and Composition in Constructed Dairy Wetland Wastewater Effluent
The results show that the wetland system is a natural process dependent upon the development of healthy microbial communities for optimal wastewater treatment. Expand
Root-zone salinity. I. Selecting a product-yield index and response function for crop tolerance
Six empirical functions were compared for describing the product yields of agricultural crops grown while subject to increasing levels of root-zone salinity and the modified compound-discount equation recorded the lowest root mean square error and the highest R 2 value. Expand
Root-zone salinity. II. Indices for tolerance in agricultural crops
The purpose of this study is to determine if the discount function If the term p is substituted for (exp(sC50)) in Eq. Expand
