Plant Breeding for Biotic Stress Resistance

FREEDownload : Plant Breeding for Biotic Stress Resistance

Plant Breeding for Biotic Stress Resistance by Roberto Fritsche-Neto, Aluízio Borém
2012 | ISBN: 364233086X, 3642330886 | English | 176 Pages | PDF | 3.65 MB

Plant Breeding for Biotic Stress Resistance
Experience shows that biotic stresses occur with different levels of intensity in nearly all agricultural areas around the world. The occurrence of insects, weeds and diseases caused by fungi, bacteria or viruses may not be relevant in a specific year but they usually harm yield in most years. Global warming has shifted the paradigm of biotic stresses in most growing areas, especially in the tropical countries, sparking intense discussions in scientific forums. This book was written with the idea of collecting in a single publication the most recent advances and discoveries concerning breeding for biotic stresses, covering all major classes of biotic challenges to agriculture and food production. Accordingly, it presents the state-of-the-art in plant stresses caused by all microorganisms, weeds and insects and how to breed for them. Complementing Plant Breeding for Abiotic Stress Tolerance, this book was written for scientists and students interested in learning how to breed for biotic stress scenarios, allowing them to develop a greater understanding of the basic mechanisms of resistance to biotic stresses and develop resistant cultivars.

How To Grow Your Own Bonsai Trees From Seed

How To Grow Your Own Bonsai Trees From Seed by Bruce Bullock
English | Mar 26, 2011 | ASIN: B004U363MC | 30 Pages | EPUB/MOBI/AZW3/PDF (Converted) | 2 MB
Growing bonsai trees from seed is surprisingly easy and can be an incredibly rewarding experience. Germination on many types of tree seed is good with a large percentage achieving germination if fresh seed of the correct types of seed are chosen.

How To Grow Your Own Bonsai Trees From Seed
Contrary to what many people may think growing trees from seed can be fast and growth is quite rapid on many varieties. Most of all this can be done on a small budget and in no time at all you will be able to have plenty of small trees of different varieties to grow and train into bonsai.

This eBook will teach you the basic principles of seed sowing, from how to choose the best varieties, whether to collect or buy the seed, and how to sow the seed with advice on caring for the seedlings. It will also give a description of how to treat all the most popular tree seed types for bonsai.

As a hobby, keeping bonsai is an extremely rewarding experience and when one grows the bonsai trees from seed it is even more so as you can develop a personal relationship with each tree having seen its development from germination to tree.

One of the main advantages of growing trees from seed is that it costs so little, and if the seeds are personally collected then there is no outlay at all which is even more satisfying.

Whether you live in a tropical country in the southern hemisphere or in a cool temperate region of the northern hemisphere, the treatment of seeds for sowing may be different.

What is common though is that you will be amazed and delighted at your collection of germinating tree seedlings which will continue to fascinate you as these quickly develop into larger young trees. This to me is what nature is all about.

There are many different types and classifications of tree seed. There are those which require a period of dormancy while others are best sown immediately. Some seeds may take several years to germinate while others will start sprouting within a week or two of being sown.

Chapters in the book are as follows:-

1) Introduction
2) Seed Types and Characteristics
3) Seed Treatments
4) What You Will Need
5) Collecting or Buying Your Seed
6) Storing Your Seed
7) Sowing Your Seed
8) Pricking Out and Potting On
9) Initial Pruning
10) Some of the Best Tree Varieties
11) Useful Links

This book has an active table of contents and a section with many links to excellent online suppliers of tree and other seeds, researched over many years by the author.
