1. Physiological and mineralogical properties of arsenic stressed oat seedlings grown hydroponically.

To determine arsenic (As) phytotoxicity in gramineae, a hydroponic experiment with oat was conducted. Twenty-four days old oat seedlings were treated with sodium meta-arsenite (NaAsO2) for 14 days at different rates of As in the greenhouse. Shoot growth decreased by 28.17, 38.34, 68.34, and 75.85%, ...

2. Characterization of sun-injury and prediction of sunscald on 'packham's triumph' pears using Vis-NIR spectroscopy.

Sun injury (sunburn) and sunscald (delayed sunburn) postharvest have been well characterized on apples but not on pears. In fact, a sunscald-type disorder has only been noticed, commercially, in the last five years on pears grown under increasingly warmer conditions. 'Packham's Triumph' pears with...
