Altered divalent cation homeostasis with bone mineral loss, hypercalciuria, and hypomagnesemia have been associated consistently with human diabetes mellitus. This study investigated functional,… Expand
Variation in nitrogen response among spring rape (Brassica napus) cultivars and its relationship to nitrogen uptake and utilization
Abstract Growth, development and yield of 40 diverse spring rape (Brassica napus) cultivars were measured at three different levels of applied nitrogen in the field. There were significant cultivar… Expand
Phenotypic variation in boron-toxicity tolerance at seedling stage in durum wheat (Triticum durum)
SummaryNineteen durum wheat landraces, cultivars or advanced lines of different origins in West Asia and North Africa (WANA), and three barley and two bread wheat varieties were evaluated for their… Expand

Two experiments were conducted to evaluate the chemical and nutritional values of 5 tannin-free fava bean (FB) cultivars (FB9, FB10, FB13, FB17, and FB24) on growth, visceral organ size, and blood… Expand
Boron toxicity in barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) seedlings in relation to soil temperature
Boron (B) is an essential micronutrient in crop growth but its sufficiency range is narrow. Boron toxicity is a widespread problem in arid and semi-arid areas with cold weather. We investigated the… Expand
Deficit Irrigation and Split N Fertilization on Wheat and Barley Yields in a Semi-Arid Mediterranean Area
This study investigated the interactive effects of different rates of deficit irrigation and timings of N application on wheat and barley yields since there was no report on this important subject.… Expand
The effect of safflower meal substitution in a lysine fortified corn-soybean meal diet on performance, egg quality, and yolk fat profile of laying hens
SUMMARY Two experiments were conducted to study the performance, egg quality, and yolk fat profile of laying hens fed rations containing de-hulled-extruded safflower meal (SFM) in partial or total… Expand
BF3-activated oxidation of alkanes by MnO4 -.
