ABSTRACT Effects of row orientation on fruit yield of okra (Abel-moschus esculentus [L.] Moench) were studied. Plants in north-south (N-S) rows produced more fruit than those in east-west (E-W) rows. Amounts of photosynthetic (400–700 nm) and morphogenic light (far-red to red light ratio [FR/R]) received by plants grown in N-S and E-W rows were also determined. The mean amounts of photosynthetic light received by plants grown in E-W and N-S oriented rows were similar. Reflected light received… Expand
Effects of shade regimes and planting geometry on growth, yield and quality of the natural sweetener plant stevia (Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni) in north-western Himalaya
TLDR
Stevia spaced at 30 × 15 cm in an E–W direction recorded significantly higher total steviol glycosides at 2 months after transplanting (MAT) than in the narrow row spacing during both years. Expand

Photosynthate partitioning and nodule formation in soybean plants that received red or far‐red light at the end of the photosynthetic period
TLDR
Phytochrome effects on photosynthate partitioning between tops and roots may influence yield of soybean plants grown in soils with low water-holding capacity. Expand
Plant Spacing and Reflected Far‐Red Light Effects on Phytochrome‐Regulated Photosynthate Allocation in Corn Seedlings
TLDR
Stem elongation was an early response to increased FR/R ratio even though light did not impinge directly on the stems, which were initially at or below the soil surface and covered by several layers of leaves. Expand
Far-Red Light Reflection from Green Leaves and Effects on Phytochrome-Mediated Assimilate Partitioning under Field Conditions.
TLDR
Red, far-red photoreversibility in the controlled environment study indicated involvement of phytochrome, and dry matter partitioning among plant components in the field was related to far- red/red light ratio received during growth and development. Expand
Soybean response to Rhizobium japonicum strain, row orientation, and irrigation
TLDR
It was concluded that environmental differences induced by row orientation influence some strains in soybean more than others, particularly under irrigated conditions. Expand

Inhibition of Flowering of Chenopodium rubrum by Prolonged Far-Red Radiation
TLDR
Comparison of far- red action-spectrum with phytochrome-absorption curves showed that the inhibitory action on flowering coincides with the weak overlapping of the phy tochrome Pr (absorption maximum 660 mμ) absorption curve into the far-red region of the spectrum. Expand
