GAMMA, ELECTRON BEAM AND ULTRAVIOLET RADIATION ON CONTROL OF STORAGE ROTS AND QUALITY OF WALLA WALLA ONIONS
Walla Walla onions were irradiated with doses of 0.1, 0.3, 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0 kGy of gamma rays; 0.1, 1.0, 2.0, 3.0 and 5.0 kGy of electron beams; or 0.44 × 104 1.32 × 104, 3.52 × 104, 7.33 × 104 andExpand
Continuous Daily Light Period and Temperature Influence Peanut Yield in Nutrient Film Technique
TLDR
Evaluation of the effect of a continuous light period combined with constant or diurnally cyded temperatures on pod and seed yield, plant biomass, harvest index, and gas exchange in ‘Georgia Red’ peanut grown hydroponically under the nutrient film technique suggests that, while light period influenced, foliage, pod, and Seed yield, temperature influenced foliage dry mass, immature seed yields, and harvest index.

Sweet Potato Growth Parameters, Yield Components and Nutritive value for CELSS Applications
Sweet potatoes have been grown hydroponically using the nutrient film technique (NFT) to provide a potential food source for long-term manned space missions. Experiments in both sand and NFTExpand
Elevated carbon dioxide influences yield and photosynthetic responses of hydroponically-grown sweetpotato
TLDR
The response of 'TI-155' and 'Georgia Jet' sweetpotato cultivars to elevated CO2 concentrations were evaluated under controlled environment conditions using the nutrient film technique (NFT) and CO2 concentration did not significantly influence net Pn, transpiration, water-use-efficiency (WUE), and stomatal conductance.

Sensitivity of Sweetpotato Weevil (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) to Gamma Radiation
TLDR
Effects of gamma radiation on the sweetpotato weevil, Cylas formicarius elegantulus (Summers), were studied and Reproductive ability of irradiated adults was considerably reduced at 5 krad, and complete sterility occurred in females at 20 krad and in males at 30 krad. Expand
Relative Humidity Influences Yield, Edible Biomass, and Linear Growth Rate of Sweetpotato
TLDR
Vine cuttings of T1-155 were grown using the nutrient film technique in a randomized complete-block design with two replications to study the physiological and growth response of sweetpotato to either 50% or 85% relative humidity. Expand
Plant Spacing Influences Yield and Linear Growth Rate of Sweetpotatoes Grown Hydroponically
TLDR
Storage root count, fresh and dry weights, and linear growth rate of sweetpotatoes grown by use of the nutrient film technique declined linearly in response to decreased BCS, while fresh anddry foliage weight decreased linearly and quadratically as spacing was reduced within the growth channels. Expand
GAMMA RADIATION DOSE RATE AND SWEET POTATO QUALITY
“Jewel” sweet potatoes were irradiated with gamma radiation and a dose-rate relationship on nutrients was investigated. The total dose was 1 kGy/h. The results indicated that generally moisture,Expand
Growth Responses of Hydroponically Grown Sweetpotato Tolerant and Intolerant of a Continuous Daily Light Period
TLDR
Leaves were smallest for both genotypes at the 21-h light period, while storage root yield declined as leaf area index increased, and production efficiency decreased with increased daily PPF. Expand
