Carrizo citrange was the most tolerant citrus rootstock to B-deficiency and some physiological performance could be attributed to the decreased mineral nutrient concentrations caused by B-deficiency. Boron (B) is an essential microelement for normal growth and development in vascular plants, and adequate B nutrition is crucial for agricultural production.(More)
In a preliminary study on improving manufacturing control of composite wood products, near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) was tested to determine moisture content (MC) of trembling aspen (Populus tremuloides Michx.) flakes that are used in oriented strand board (OSB) manufacturing. Three drying cycles (of 1 kg each) of aspen flakes were scanned at different(More)
This study investigated the use of monoethanolamine (Mea) solution to extract copper from alkaline copper quat (ACQ)-treated wood. Mea could extract more than 90 % of copper from ACQ-treated wood. The formation of stable neutral Cu(Mea)2 in Mea solution is the main mechanism for Mea extraction. The effects of process parameters: pH, Mea concentration and(More)
