BACKGROUND The effect of foliar fertilization and Glomus intraradices inoculation on the growth, qualitative and quantitative pattern of essential oil in Salvia officinalis was determined. Sage plants were grown in a glass house on a soil/sand mixture (w/w = 3:1). Agroleaf total, N:P:K = 20:20:20 + microelements, was used at the whole vegetative growth(More)
An effective in vitro protocol for rapid clonal propagation of Echinacea purpurea (L.) Moench through tissue culture was described. The in vitro propagation procedure consisted of four stages: 1) an initial stage - obtaining seedlings on Murashige and Skoog (MS) basal medium with 0.1 mg L−1 6-benzylaminopurine, 0.1 mg L−1 α-naphthalene acetic acid and 0.2(More)
Three 4-hydroxycoumarin derivatives (ethyl 2-[(4-hydroxy-2-oxo-2H-chromen-3-yl)(4-hydroxyphenyl)methyl]-3-oxobutanoate (SS-14), ethyl 2-[(4-hydroxy-2-oxo-2H-chromen-3-yl)(3-nitrophenyl)methyl]-3-oxobutanoate (SS-21), and 2-[(3,4,5-trimethoxyphenyl)(4-hydroxy-2-oxo-2H-chromen-3-yl)methyl]-3-oxobutanoate (T-2)] were tested for growth-regulating activity on(More)
The application of nutrients to the roots and leaves of inoculated pea plants grown under conditions of reduced Mo supply was studied. Pea plants (Pisum sativum L.) were grown on liquid nutrient solution excluding Mo from the media until the 35th day under glasshouse conditions. Plants were inoculated with the bacterial suspension of Rhizobium leguminosarum(More)
The effects of EDTA application to heavy metal-polluted soil on phytoextraction of heavy metals, leaf anatomy, gas exchange parameters, enzyme activities of C4 carbon cycle, antioxidant defense, and active compounds of Tribulus terrestris L. were evaluated. The addition of EDTA to the soil polluted with Cd and Pb markedly increased dry weight and Pb, Zn,(More)
Intergeneric cross was made between the cultivated sunflower inbred line HA89 and an accession of wild Verbesina encelioides tolerant to drought and high temperature. The line was a BC2F5 progeny. The most remarkable feature of the plants was their compact architecture due to short petiole length and also, rather specific bright-yellow inflorescences.(More)
The study evaluated the response of alfalfa (Medicago sativa L) to arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AM) species Glomus intraradices and Sinorhizobium meliloti, strain 1021 regarding the dry biomass accumulation, mycorrhizal fungi colonization, nodulation and nitrogen fixation activity. Alfalfa plants were grown in a glasshouse until the flowering stage (58(More)
Oxidative stress response and essential oil composition of sage (Salvia officinalis L.), grown on industrially polluted soil were studied. Sage plants were grown on the soil polluted with Cd, Cu, Pb, Zn, and non-polluted control soil. One-year-old sage possessed a high potential for heavy metal accumulation mainly in the roots. Heavy metal pollution(More)
Two Sinorhizobium meliloti strains (1021 and NitR) were used for inoculation of alfalfa plants to study nitrogen assimilation under nutrient deficiency conditions in hydroponics experiments. The wild type Sinorhizobium meliloti 1021 was compared with a mutant strain – S. meliloti NitR. NitR protein was found to be a regulator of S. meliloti hmgA expression(More)
The response of pea (Pisum sativum cv. Avola) to arbuscular micorrizal fungi (AM) species Glomus mosseae and Glomus intraradices and Rhizobium leguminosarum bv. Viciae, strain D293 regarding growth, nodulation and nitrogen fixing activity was studied. Pea plants (Pisum sativum cv. Avola) were grown in a glasshouse until flowering stage (35 days) in 4 kg(More)
