3. Stabilising urea nitrogen enhances flowering, nitrogen use efficiency, and growth habit for stress tolerance in ornamental plants

Sally Wilkinson; Anna Weston; David Marks

Volume 2, Issue 1 - March 2019 , Winter and Spring 2019, , Pages 13-30

  Purpose: Supplying plants with nitrogen in ammonium nitrate- or urea-based fertiliser is wasteful: much is degraded before acquisition, releasing environmental pollutants. Preventing urea degradation can reduce pollution and improve crop nitrogen use efficiency. We investigate benefits to ureic stabilisation, ...  Read More

Hamid-Reza Fallahi; Mohmmad Hossein Aminifard; Abbas Jorkesh

Volume 1, Issue 1 - March 2018 , Winter and Spring 2018, , Pages 27-36

  The effects of thiamin (Thi) applied as foliar spray on some morphological and physiological traits were investigated in basil (Ocimum basilicum L.). Four levels of Thi including 0 (distilled water), 250, 500 and 750 µM were tested in a randomized complete design with three replications at research ...  Read More
