Oil Content and Fatty Acid Composition in Seeds of Three Safflower Species
Seeds of six safflower (C. tinctorius L.) genotypes and 19 accessions of two wild species were analyzed for oil and fatty acid composition. Oil content ranged from 29.20 to 34.00, 20.04 to 30.80 andExpand
Photosynthesis under artificial light: the shift in primary and secondary metabolism
Providing an adequate quantity and quality of food for the escalating human population under changing climatic conditions is currently a great challenge. In outdoor cultures, sunlight provides energyExpand
Phytoremediation of an aged petroleum contaminated soil using endophyte infected and non-infected grasses.
Phytoremediation is a promising technique for cleaning petroleum contaminated soils. In this study, the effects of two grass species (Festuca arundinacea Schreb. and Festuca pratensis Huds.),Expand
High performance of vegetables, flowers, and medicinal plants in a red-blue LED incubator for indoor plant production
In urban agriculture, plant growth is limited by the availability of light. Light emitting diodes (LED) could provide specific quality and quantity of light overcoming existing limitations for normalExpand
Neotyphodium endophytes trigger salt resistance in tall and meadow fescues
Infection with Neotyphodium spp. endophytes increases resistance to drought stress and soil mineral imbalances in tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea Schreb. = Lolium arundinaceum (Schreb.) S. J.Expand
Epichloe fungal endophytes for grassland ecosystems
The Epichloe fungal endophytes that inhabit grasses have potentially large-scale consequences for macro- and micro-organisms and food chains in agriculture. Over 40 years of study on the benefits ofExpand
Wild safflower species ('Carthamus oxyacanthus' Bieb.): A possible source of drought tolerance for arid environments
The detection and incorporation of genes from wild plant species provides a means for sustaining genetic improvement in plants cultivated in arid environments. This research measured relative levelsExpand
Genetic variation among populations of wild safflower, Carthamus oxyacanthus analyzed by agro-morphological traits and ISSR markers
Wild species of safflower, Carthamus oxyacanthus Bieb., is highly crossable with cultivated species, C. tinctorius L. and could be directly exploited in broadening safflower gene pool and improvingExpand
Impact of light-emitting diode irradiation on photosynthesis, phytochemical composition and mineral element content of lettuce cv. Grizzly
Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) are a promising technology with a potential to improve the irradiance efficiency, light quality, and the light spectrum for increasing plant yield and quality. In thisExpand
