locations by measuring plant dry weight and leaf area. Herbicide efficacy experiments were conducted with four modes of action: amino acid biosynthesis inhibitors, growth regulators, acetolactate synthase (ALS) inhibitors, and cell membrane disrupters. Total...
The role of genetic and phenotypic diversity in maize and its effects on aflatoxin accumulation by the fungus Aspergillus flavus
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2008)
Accumulation of the potent carcinogen, aflatoxin, in maize poses a significant health risk to humans and animals. Most commercially grown maize lines are susceptible to infection by the fungus that synthesizes aflatoxin, ...
Allelopathic effects and removal of overseeded ryegrass on bermudagrass
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2010)
Allelopathy is a complex phenomenon among plants that involves the production of defensive chemicals that influence the growth and survival of adjacent plants. Plants like perennial ryegrass become suspect when bermudagrass ...
