Fungal solid state culture of palm kernel cake.
Importance of Silicon and Mechanisms of Biosilica Formation in Plants
Silicon is one of the most prevalent macroelements, performing an essential function in healing plants in response to environmental stresses, but the concentration of Si depends on the plants genotype and organisms, and the physiological mechanisms and metabolic activities of plants may be affected by Si application.
Genetic Diversity of Upland Rice Germplasm in Malaysia Based on Quantitative Traits
High heritability along with high genetic advance was registered for yield of plant, days to flowering, and flag leaf length-to-width ratio suggesting preponderance of additive gene action in the gene expression of these characters.
The effect of plant growth regulators on optimization of tissue culture system in Malaysian upland rice
Among the four upland rice cultivars evaluated, Selasi and Lamsan are two promising cultivars in terms of callus induction frequency and morphology, and regeneration ability of the embryogenic callus.
Effect of salt stress on germination and early seedling growth of rice ( Oryza sativa L.)
Rice varieties MR211, MR232 and IR20 might be used for further study of salinity effect on growth processes and physiological consequences at advanced stage of growth, since salt tolerance of a crop at germination and early seedling stage may not correspond to that atAdvanced stage.
Genetic Variation, Heritability, and Diversity Analysis of Upland Rice (Oryza sativa L.) Genotypes Based on Quantitative Traits
The selected best trait of the number of filled grains/panicle and yields/plant (g), which showed high heritability and high genetic advance, could be used as a selection criterion for hybridisation programmes in the future.
In-vitro compatibility evaluation of fungal mixed culture for bioconversion of domestic wastewater sludge
Six different fungal strains/isolates were selected after conducting a series of experiments of isolation and screening to evaluate their successful adaptation and growth to domestic wastewater
Genotypes MR211 andMR232 were found to be relatively tolerant to salt than the other genotypes, and showed decreasing trend with increasing salinity level.
Earthworm populations and cast properties in the soils of oil palm plantations.
Oil palm plantations generate a substantial amount of agricultural by-products, such as oil palm empty fruit bunches (EFB) and fronds. These by-products are commonly recycled in the oil palm
Dry matter and nutrient partitioning of kenaf (Hibiscus cannabinus L.) varieties grown on sandy bris soil
Dry matter and nutrient partitioning of different kenaf varieties grown on sandy Beach Ridges Interspersed with Swales (BRIS) soils provides a means to select better varieties and makes it possible to grow kenAF on BRIS soil using better fertilizer program.
