Effects of varying nitrogen supply at different stages of the reproductive phase on spikelet and grain production and on grain nitrogen in wheat
(CSIRO Publishing, 1973)
Plants of wheat cv. Arawa confined to the main shoot were grown in solution culture in a glasshouse. Nitrogen supply was either high (150 p.p.111.) or low (15 p.p.m.) at three stages of development: between the double-ridge ...
A study of floret development in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)
(Oxford University Press, 1973-09-01)
Plants of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cv. Aotea were grown at high or low nitrogen levels and in a natural photoperiod or continuous light. Starting 17-21 days from the double-ridge stage, eight plants from each treatment ...
The vascular system of the spikelet in wheat (Triticum aestivum)
(Oxford University Press, 1972-09-01)
The lower three florets in a spikelet of wheat cv. Aotea were found to be supplied by the principal vascular bundles of the rachilla, while the system of more distal florets consisted of subvascular elements derived from ...
An analysis of a nitrogen-induced depression of yield in irrigated 'Kopara' wheat
(Taylor & Francis on behalf of the Royal Society of New Zealand, 1974)
Heavy applications of nitrogen fertiliser (200 kg/ha) applied in early spring to wheat (Triticum aestivum L. cv. 'Kopara') on a Wakanui silt loam, in which irrigation was used to maintain soil-water levels above -0.5 bar, ...
Effects of kinetin on tiller bud elongation in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)
Experiments are described in which at four stages of development main tillers of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) were isolated and inserted in test-tubes containing distilled water or kinetin. Leaves and leaf sheaths were ...
