Fungi occurring on narcissus plantation in annual and biennial croppingGrzyby występujące na plantacji narcyza w jednorocznym i dwuletnim cyklu uprawy
The obtained results indicated the necessity of digging up the bulbs every year and rotation of cropping place to reduce possible risk of smoulder and Fusarium rot in the secound year of subsequent cropping.
Characterisation of fusarium pathogens in the UK
Screening of eleven new candidate effector genes suggested that FOC isolates have different gene sets which correspond to the continuous variation of aggressiveness found within the FOC population.
Effects of fungicides on galanthamine and metabolite profiles in Narcissus bulbs.
It is shown that the fungicides used in Narcissus cultivation can cause a change in the metabolome still detectable in the bulbs after harvest, as well as changes in bulb metabolite patterns caused by fungicides.
Effect of fertilizers on galanthamine and metabolite profiles in Narcissus bulbs by 1H NMR.
This study shows how (1)H NMR-based metabolic profiling can provide insight into the response of plant metabolism to agricultural practices and indicates that standard levels of fertilizer currently applied in The Netherlands are sufficient for optimal galanthamine accumulation in the bulbs.
Ornamental bulb crops as sources of medicinal and industrial natural products
Plants produce many diverse chemical compounds that are used in various industries. The aim of this thesis was to obtain an understanding of what is needed to convert an ornamental crop to a


Wild Narcissus species as a source of resistance to Fusarium oxysporum f.sp. narcissi
Summary Thirty three species and varieties of Narcissus plus seventeen cultivars with recent species parentage were screened for resistance to Fusarium oxysporum f.sp. narcissi. Accessions were
The production, clonal propagation and resistance screening of hybrid lines generated from crosses using N. jonquilla as pollen parent and two commercial varieties, Golden Harvest and St. Keverne, and the inheritance of resistance in an F1 generation from the diploid species are described.
Control of Fusarium oxysporum f.sp. narcissi, the cause of narcissus basal rot, with thiabendazole and other fungicides
Strategies for using thiabendazole fungicide to control basal rot in infested narcissus stocks were investigated in three experiments, and double treatment with fungicides was useful in controlling basal rot.
Biological and integrated control of Fusarium basal rot of Narcissus using Minimedusa polyspora and other micro‐organisms
In a 1-year field trial pre-planting bulb treatments with M polyspora, a Streptomyces species and an isolate of Trichoderma viride significantly suppressed reductions in flower numbers, reductions in bulb yield, and percentage infection.
Narcissus and daffodil: the genus Narcissus.
Narcissus and Daffodil is the first book to provide a complete overview of the genus Narcissus, and will be of particular importance for people working in the fields of horticulture, agriculture, medicine, pharmacology and perfume chemistry and drug manufacture.
Biodegradable, Elastic Shape-Memory Polymers for Potential Biomedical Applications
A group of degradable thermoplastic polymers that are able to change their shape after an increase in temperature enables bulky implants to be placed in the body through small incisions or to perform complex mechanical deformations automatically.
