The sharp ends of the awn
allow them to penetrate the skin of your dog, become lodged in ears, as well as the possibility of being inhaled through the nose, or ingested, as your dog runs through thick cover.
The real purpose of the awns
is to help the seeds work their way into the soil, where they bury themselves and wait for winter rainfall to germinate and start the cycle again.
In detail, from upper respiratory tract, grass awns
were extracted from 24/41 patients for a total number of 25 awns
(Figure 1 and Table 1).
X-rays revealed the culprit: Her lungs had been invaded by a grass awn
, a tiny, nefarious agent of pain.
Megress-1 spike grain yield responded more to leaf ablation (-25.8%), Bousselam spike grain yield to awns
ablation (-24.2%), while spike grain yield of MBB/Ofanto, Essalem and Megress-3 showed high decline caused by spike shading (-42.3, -48.7 and -41.5%, respectively).
length, positive value of GCA is required because maximum awn
length contributes towards maximum light reflectance.
characteristic was quantified as the percentage of seeds with an awn
in a random sample of 50 seeds from a plant and expressed as the mean of three samples.
Locating the troublesome awn
is akin to finding that proverbial needle in a haystack.
Nevertheless, these results demonstrate a slight advantage of leaf rust resistance and awns
for kernel size that is consistent with trends in kernel weight (Table 2).
Checking the chest, underbelly, and flank for cuts, grass awns
They differ from each other in that NO753-2 produces plants with two lemma awns
on most spikelets while NO753-2A produces plants with three or four lemma awns
on most spikelets.
The 2013 National Amateur champion English springer spaniel is another grass awn
