3. Effects of sodium chloride-induced salinity on mineral nutrients and soluble sugars in three commercial cultivars of pomegranate.

The effect of salinity on the nutritional status of pomegranate cv. Alak Torsh, Malas Torsh, and Malas Shirin was studied in Saveh, Iran. Rooted cuttings were planted in a sand-perlite mixture and fertigated with complete Hoaglands solution containing 0, 40, 80, and 120 mM of NaCl. After 80 days,...

21. Global chemical fate of α-hexachlorocyclohexane. 1. Evaluation of a global distribution model.

Vertical atmospheric layering is included in a previously described, zonally averaged global multimedia distribution model. This model was used to simulate the fate of α-hexachlorocyclohexane (α-HCH), the main ingredient of the technical HCH pesticide mixture, for the 50 years of its large-scale...
