Crops that feed the world 9. Oats- a cereal crop for human and livestock feed with industrial applications
Oats are a low input cereal widely grown across the world as both a grain and forage crop. Significant areas of production are in Northern Europe and North America and also in China and Australia.Expand

The effects of weather, seed rate and cultivar on lodging and yield in winter wheat
Winter wheat cultivars Apollo, Hornet, Longbow and Norman were each sown at 50, 100, 200, 400, 800 and 1600 seeds/m 2 in a field experiment conducted in Northern Ireland over the 1989/90 crop year.Expand

The impact of variation in grain number and individual grain weight on winter wheat yield in the high yield potential environment of Ireland
Abstract Previous studies from regions that produce high proportions of global winter wheat have highlighted that difference in sink size influences the majority of variations in winter wheat yield.Expand

Response of winter barley cultivars to nitrogen and a plant growth regulator in relation to lodging
Applications of nitrogen and a plant growth regulator (mepiquat chloride and ethephon) were used to manipulate stem structure and induce differing degrees of damage due to leaning and lodging in sixExpand

Sequence and properties of the message encoding Tetrahymena hv1, a highly evolutionarily conserved histone H2A variant that is associated with active genes
hv1 is a histone H2A variant found in the transcriptionally active Tetrahymena macronucleus that encodes a polyadenylated message and contains antigenic determinants conserved in the histone complements of representatives of all four eukaryotic kingdoms. Expand

Responses of developmental yield formation processes in oats to variety, nitrogen, seed rate and plant growth regulator and their relationship to quality
Outcomes of developmental yield formation processes in oats, namely number of panicles/m 2 , number of grains/panicle, mean grain weight and incidences of aborted and tertiary grains, were measuredExpand

Structure and development of oats
A wealth of detailed knowledge about the structure and anatomy of oats has been uncovered and published by several eminent scientists in recent decades. The anatomy, i.e. the tissue structure of theExpand

Drosophila has a single copy of the gene encoding a highly conserved histone H2A variant of the H2A.F/Z type.
The Tetrahymena histone H2A variant designated hv1 is localized exclusively in the transcriptionally active macronucleus and is absent from the quiescent micronucleus (1). A cDNA clone of the hv1Expand

Nucleus-specific and temporally restricted localization of proteins in Tetrahymena macronuclei and micronuclei
Labeled nuclear proteins were microinjected into the cytoplasm of Tetrahymena thermophila. Macronuclear H1, calf thymus H1, and the SV40 large T antigen nuclear localization signal linked to BSAExpand

Effects of elevated CO2 concentration and increased temperature on winter wheat: test of ARCWHEAT1 simulation model
Winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L., cv, Mercia) was grown in a controlled-environment facility at two CO2 concentrations (targets 350 and 700 mu mol mol(-1)), and two temperature regimes (trackingExpand
