BACKGROUND Cucumber (Cucumis sativus) belongs to the Cucurbitaceae family that includes more than 800 species. The cucumber genome has been recently sequenced and annotated. Transcriptomics and genome sequencing of many plant genomes are providing information on candidate genes potentially related to agronomically important traits. To accelerate functional(More)
Targeting Induced Local Lesions IN Genomes (TILLING) combines chemical mutagenesis with high throughput screening to allow the generation of alleles of selected genes. In this study, TILLING has been applied to produce a series of mutations in genes encoding essential components of the tomato light signal transduction pathway in an attempt to enhance fruit(More)
Seeds of four vegetable crops; carrot (Daucus carota L. cv Nantes 2-Tito), cucumber (Cuucumis sativus L. cv Special), onion (Alium cepa L. cv Red Creole ) and tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill. cv Tanshet Star) were stored under a wide range of temperature (5, 15, 25 and 35°C) and relative humidity (RH) (11.3, 22.5, 32.5, 43.2, 58.4, 75.3 and 84.3%)(More)
Growth and production of agricultural crops are greatly affected by water shortage. Thus, yield enhancement under drought conditions is a major goal of plant breeding. Four commercial tomato cultivars (Imperial, Pakmore VF, Strain-B and Tnshet Star), a drought-tolerant breeding line (L 03306) and their hybrid combinations were selected in this study to(More)
Twenty locally grown tomato cultivars were evaluated for their in vitro heat tolerance. Leaf discs were collected during vegetative, flowering and fruiting stages and incubated in water bath at 40°C for 1, 2 and 3 hours. Electrical conductivity (EC) was measured as an indication of cell injury due to electrolytes leakage. The results indicated that(More)
This study assessed effects of irrigation water regimes and humic acid (HA) application on vegetative growth, yield, tuber quality and water use efficiency (WUE) of potato. Five irrigation treatments were applied at three developmental stages; (WR1) control (100 % crop evapotranspiration, 100 % ETc) at all plant growth, (WR2) 75 % ETc at all stages, (WR3)(More)
