Water stress was imposed upon soybean [Glyxine max (L.) Merr. cv. Williams] and maize [Zea mays (L.) cv. Pioneer 3377] plants grown under controlled-environment conditions during a growing period of several irrigation cycles. Transpiration rates of individual plants were measured with a calibrated heat-pulse method and correlated to the rate of water loss(More)
Progressive development in cotton root morphology of resistant A623 and susceptible M-8 cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) lines following infection by the root-knot nematode Meloidogyne incognita was studied in glass front boxes. Symptom development and radicle growth were observed; degree of galling, gall and egg mass diameter, and number of eggs per egg mass(More)
Soybean (Glycine max [L.] Merr. cv Braxton) plants were grown in sandy soil with only natural rainfall (N) or with supplemental irrigation (I). Water-stressed plants grew more extensive root systems, whereas irrigated plants developed larger shoots and smaller root systems. Maximum stomatal apertures were observed at the beginning of each photoperiod.(More)
A data base was generated for quantifying effects of thermal time (degree-days) on the appearance of new leaves, the expansion of such leaves to maximum area, their death, the appearance of new internodes below the node associated with such leaves, and the extension of these internodes to maximum length. The data base for a list of crop (agronomic and(More)
