Effect of combined nitrogen and sulphur fertilization on yield and qualitative parameters of Camelina sativa [L.] Crtz. (false flax)
Abstract Camelina (Camelina sativa (L.) Crtz., false flax) is described as a species requiring fewer inputs than other oilseed crops thus making it an interesting alternative in sustainable cropping
Nitrogen fertilization does not affect micronutrient uptake in grain maize (Zea mays L.)
Abstract Due to continuous single nitrogen fertilization, we hypothesized a built-up deficiency of micronutrients in crops that would limit plant growth and crop quality. In 2-year field experiments
Selenium – An Important Antioxidant in Crops Biofortification
For human body selenium is essential element playing important role in body antioxidation system; it is considered individual antioxidant that can cooperate with other antioxidants, such as C and E
Content of phenolic compounds and free polyamines in black chokeberry (Aronia melanocarpa) after application of polyamine biosynthesis regulators.
Ornithine decarboxylase inhibitor had a markedly different effect as it significantly increased total contents of anthocyanins and total phenolics, inhibited the total content of free polyamines, and stimulated the processes of saccharides transformation to phenolic pigments.
Soybean cadmium concentration: validation of a QTL affecting seed cadmium accumulation for improved food safety
Marker-assisted selection of soybean genotypes for low cadmium accumulation could contribute to improved food safety which is particularly important for environments with unknown cadmiam status of soil.
Response of "Jonagold" apple trees to Ca, K and Mg fertilization in an andisol in southern Chile
Abstract The effects of Ca, Mg and K fertilisation on the growth, yield, fruit quality and mineral concentration of the fruits and leaves of “Jonagold” apple trees that were grown in an Andisol in
The Effect of Selenium Supplementation on Its Concentration in Potato Tubers
Application of an optimal dose of Se into the soil before potato planting increased the Se content in the plants thus ensuring the input of necessary amounts of this essential element into the food chain.
The effect of fertilisation with digestate on kohlrabi yields and quality
Three treatments were used in a two-year (2014–2015) vegetation pot experiment with kohlrabi of the cv. Moravia: (1) untreated control; (2) digestate; (3) digestate + phosphorus (P). The nitrogen (N)
Spinach and pepper response to nitrogen and sulphur fertilization
A vegetation pot experiment was established to explore the effect of two doses of nitrogen (0.6 and 0.9 g N in the form of ammonium sulphate) and two doses of sulphur (20.6 and 30.6 mg/kg of soil) on
