This study was conducted to investigate the effect of grafting using commercial rootstocks and breeding lines on growth and resistance to both Phytophthora blight (Phytophthora capsici) and bacterial wilt (Ralstonia solanacearum), and to evaluate the breeding lines as candidates rootstocks for grafted peppers. Capsicum annuum ‘Nokkwang’ (scion) was grafted(More)
The possibility of improving the efficiency of transplant production during a summer season was studied by applying partial cooling of the root-zone during the cultivation of paprika transplants in a greenhouse. Paprika seedlings produced in a closed transplant production system were transferred to rockwool cubes, and cool-water circulation systems using(More)
Changes in physicochemical characteristics were investigated during fruit development in ‘Maehyang’, ‘Seolhyang’, ‘Keumhyang’, ‘Akihime’, and ‘Red Pearl’ strawberries. Fresh weights and color parameters of strawberry fruits changed significantly during the fruit development in all cultivars. Fruit shapes of ‘Maehyang’ and ‘Akihime’ were conical, with an(More)
With an increased demand for high-quality transplants, vegetable growers have begun to purchase grafted transplants from specialized propagators. These are often shipped over long distances, but improper transport conditions can deteriorate transplant quality. To determine the appropriate period and temperature for transporting grafted transplants, we(More)
This study was carried out to investigate the causal factors of yellowing symptom of melon that has recently increased in major production areas in Korea and to characterize root growth, sugar content and morphology of melon with the yellowing symptom. The growth characteristics were not significantly different between normal plants (control) and plants(More)
Vegetable sprouts (alfalfa, broccoli, clover, kohlrabi, radish, and red radish) were cultivated under three monochromatic light regimes (red, green, and blue) with five different light intensities (0, 12.5, 25, 50, and 100 µmol·m−2·s−1) to investigate the effects of light intensity and quality on the growth and total phenolic content of the vegetable(More)
In the production of grafted transplants, healing and acclimatization are the most critical processes for survival. We investigated the influence of the photosynthetic photon flux (PPF) and the carbon dioxide (CO2) concentration during healing and acclimatization on the photosynthetic characteristics and growth of grafted pepper transplants to determine the(More)
Quality changes of highbush blueberry cultivars (Vaccinium corymbosum L. cvs. Bluetta, Duke) were evaluated as influenced by transport temperature. Neither cultivar remained marketable after 6 days or 16 days at room temperature or 10°C. The ‘Duke’ cultivar had slightly lower weight loss than ‘Bluetta,’ but difference between the cultivars was not(More)
