We investigated the effects of warming the basal ends of Carolina poplar (Populus × canadensis Moench.) softwood cuttings at controlled low-air-temperature on their root growth and leaf damage after planting. The warming treatment was applied to the cuttings by soaking 10 mm beyond the cut end in warmed water maintained at 30 °C in a cold chamber maintained(More)
To improve the propagation of Japanese cedar (Cryptomeria japonica D. Don), we investigated the effects of apical and basal temperatures during a water soaking treatment on the adventitious root formation of 70-mm long shoot tip cuttings which have an apical bud. The basal portion of the cuttings was soaked for 28 days in water with temperatures ranging(More)
This study investigated the effects of atmospheric moisture on conidia development in cucurbit powdery mildew fungus (Podosphaera xanthii) through host-plant responses. Cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) seedlings were grown under a high vapour pressure deficit (VPD) (3.8 kPa) or a low VPD (0.4 kPa). When the cotyledons had expanded, spores of P. xanthii were(More)
