Adventitious shoot formation from leaf explants of Rhododendron
‘Lodestar’ had the highest rate of regeneration after 3 months of culture with 96% shoot regeneration and an average of 14 shoots per explant, and this protocol should be useful in applying gene transfer techniques to Rhododendron improvement.
Adventitious Shoot Production from a Vireya Hybrid of Rhododendron
An efficient adventitious shoot production protocol has been developed for Rhododendron laetum × aurigeranum, which indicates that Vireya rhododendrons may have potential as greenhouse-gr own orna- mental plants.
Effect of Molybdenum Rate on Yield and Quality of Lettuce, Escarole, and Curly Endive Grown in a Floating System
The results demonstrated that molybdenum is essential for harvesting marketable plants and increasing Mo supply to lettuce, escarole, and curly endive up to 3.0 µmol L−1 could lead to a higher nutritional quality with no significant morphological alteration or yield loss.
Application of PGPB Combined with Variable N Doses Affects Growth, Yield-Related Traits, N-Fertilizer Efficiency and Nutritional Status of Lettuce Grown under Controlled Condition
Nitrogen (N) fertilization is a crucial agricultural practice for boosting production traits in vegetables. However, N synthetic fertilizers—commonly adopted by farmers—have several counterproductive

The propagation of this species by axillary shoot proliferation from in vitro-cultured meristems produces systemic pathogen-free plants and a higher multiplication rate as compared to that obtained by conventional agamic multiplication.
Soil Solarization as an Alternative to Methyl Bromide Fumigation for Annual Strawberry Production in a Mediterranean Area
ABSTRACT This study compares the effects of soil solarization and methyl bromide fumigation on the growth and yield of strawberry plants (Fragaria xananassa Duch.) cultivated under plastic tunnel
