Furthermore, the occurrence of frost in the reproductive period could also have contributed to the homogenization of the AIRS, due to both abortion and lesions of siliques larger than 4cm in length, which characterizes damages by freezing, as a consequence of frost.
2014), who observed higher AIRS and higher dry matter siliques in Hyola 61 compared to Hyola 432 hybrid.
However, at Guarani das Missoes (Hyola 61), the free visitation and xenogamy treatments resulted in higher production of seeds per silique
(see Table 1), as has previously been observed for the Hyola 432 cultivar, to which free visitation conditions were shown to increase the numbers of seeds present in the siliques
(Rosa et al.
Fruit dehiscent siliques
, linear, terete, unsegmented; valves with a prominent midvein, with obscure to distinct lateral veins, glabrous or rarely sparsely pubescent, smooth or rarely torulose; replum rounded; septum complete, veinless; style obsolete or distinct and to 5 mm long; stigma capitate, entire or 2-lobed, usually considerably wider than style.
Although the basic peroxidase isoenzyme has been previously reported in Arabidopsis leaves, this paper is the first report of such an isoenzyme in roots, flowers, stems, and immature siliques
In Arabidopsis, a tiny, pod-like structure called a silique
fulfils this role.
Parameters defining yield components were number of branches per plant siliques
per plant seeds per silique
and 1000-seed weight.
The number of siliques
per plant was significantly influenced by paclobutrazol application whereas the seed number per silique
and the 1000-seed- weight were less responsive to paclobutrazol treatment.
Carbohydrate content and enzyme metabolism in developing canola siliques
Number of grains per spike and number of seeds per silique
was counted manually from each plot by taking 10 spikes of wheat and 10 siliques
of canola selected randomly from each plot and then their averages were calculated.
Surviving plants undergo rapid growth in spring, bloom on elongated racemes 60-120 cm tall in May, produce seeds in linear siliques
in mid to late summer, and subsequently die (Cavers et al.
Reproductive stages like inflorescence raceme length, number of branches of inflorescence raceme and number of siliques
per plant were enhanced due to presence of Cd in the soil.
