The use of magnetic field as a presowing treatment has been adopted by researchers as a new environmental friendly technique. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of magnetic field exposure on tomato seeds covering a range of parameters such as transplanting percentage, plant height, shoot diameter, number of leaves per plant, fresh weight, dry(More)
Hairy fleabane is a weed found increasingly in agronomic crops and rural areas. Although glyphosate resistance is now widespread in this species, the ecological fitness of glyphosate-resistant (GR) and glyphosate-susceptible (GS) populations has not been compared. When seeds of both biotypes were subjected to different alternating temperature, germination(More)
Horseweed, [Conyza canadensis (L.) Cronq.], has been the most frequent weed species to develop resistance to glyphosate in various parts of the world, including Greece. In order to investigate the resistance mechanism, susceptible (S) and resistant ®) populations collected from regions across Greece were studied. Real-time PCR was used to determine the(More)
Aspects of the invasive potential of the noxious weed silverleaf nightshade (Solanum elaeagnifolium Cav.) were studied. Greenhouse experiments were conducted in order to assess several growth, production and fecundity traits of three silverleaf nightshade populations under differing levels of water availability and to correlate them with the invasive(More)
Sterile wild oat (Avena sterilis L.) is an autogamous grass established in warm climate regions. This species has been used as a cover crop in Mediterranean perennial crops during the spring period prior to initiating competition with the main crop for water and nutrients. However, such cover crops need to be controlled (by glyphosate or tillage) before the(More)
Under the view of species genetic erosion and the need of better crops, wild species could become important germplasm sources for breeding. At present, several wild Avena species are used as donors of valuable characters in oat breeding. In this study, wild oat distribution and diversity in wheat, barley and oat fields of Greece was examined by means of a(More)
Many soils are contaminated by heavy metals, with arsenic posing serious environmental threat. Enrichment of soil with phosphate is believed to reduce the arsenic toxicity. However, only a few attempts have already been conducted towards understanding the precise role of phosphate in controlling As toxicity. Moreover, there is no adequate information on the(More)
Conyza canadensis has been reported to be the most frequent weed species that evolved resistance to glyphosate in various parts of the world. The objective of the present study was to investigate the effect of environmental conditions (temperature and light) on the expression levels of the EPSPS gene and two major ABC-transporter genes (M10 and M11) on(More)

Cover crops constitute one of the most promising agronomic practices towards a more sustainable agriculture. Their beneficial effects on main crops, soil and environment are many and various, while risks and disadvantages may also appear. Several legumes show a high potential but further research is required in order to suggest the optimal legume cover(More)
