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 ...
Wheat yield as affected by sowing rate, irrigation, and time of white clover introduction
(Taylor & Francis, 1973)
On a fertile, moisture-retentive Wakanui silt loam Aotea wheat sown at 100 kg/ha yielded 6650 kg/ha, considerably more than when sown at 50 or 150 kg/ha. Lower yields of wheat planted at the 50 kg/ha rate were caused largely ...
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 ...
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 ...
