The first factor affecting accuracy is the difference in the genetic backgrounds of the cultivars. Under normal conditions, one wheat cultivar was derived from one or more resistant sources as parents to obtain the target wheat cultivars, in such a case, the genetic background might be relatively complex.
It is not only notable that northwest Michigan has significantly more white vinifera acreage, but also that northwest and southwest parts of the state share similar acreages of red vinifera cultivars, which typically favor warmer climates (regions 3-5), with Burgundian Pinot Noir being the most planted red cultivar.
The cultivar ANa7007 showed the lowest root diameter in both types of cultivation (absence and presence of [Al.sup.3+]) (Table 2); this behavior can contribute to explaining the low root dry matter production of this cultivar (Table 1).
Cultivar is an early stage cannabis company who has obtained conditional licences to grow, transport and cultivate high quality cannabis in Jamaica.
The well irrigated trees (T0) and moderately stressed trees (T1) had similar final basal diameters for both cultivars. However, the severely stressed Koroneiki trees (T2) showed lower decreases in basal diameters (2.03 mm) than the Picholine cultivar (2.31 mm).
At 15 and 45 DAE, there was a cultivar effect on Fe content (Table 2), and at the beginning of the cycle, Agata presented higher levels of Fe (Figure 2a); however, at 45 DAE, BRS F63 Camila had the highest total content of this nutrient, BRS Clara the lowest, and Agata had an intermediate value (Figure 2c).
The maximum hair density on leaf lamina was found on Round Brinjal 86602 cultivar (279.0/cm2) and minimum number of hairs was observed on Short Purple (186.7/cm2).
For the BMX 7166 cultivar, apparent biological productivity in the absence of interference differed from that of plants under interference during the entire cycle, resulting in a 55% reduction.
The greatest concentration of phenolic compounds in the cultivar Basilik, when subjected to salicylic acid + nymphs and to nitric oxide application, is favorable because this cultivar is susceptible, and physiological alterations may be indicative of decreased insect attack.
Hardneck cultivars tend to grow and thrive better in regions with severe winters.
