Dissertations and Theses - Agronomy
This collection includes dissertations and theses produced out of the Dept. of Agronomy between 1899-1995.
In 1995, the Dept. of Agronomy, except for soil scientists, was merged with the Dept. of Plant Pathology to form the Dept. of Crop Sciences. See dissertations and theses from the Dept. of Crop Sciences.
Genomic Organization of Fatty Acid Desaturase-2 (Fad2 ) and Fatty Acid Desaturase-6 (Fad6) ESTs in Maize (2000)Corn oil is primarily composed of palmitic, stearic, oleic, linoleic and linolenic fatty acids. Increased levels of oleic acid may enhance the nutritional and functional value of corn oil. The biochemical pathway for fatty ...
(2000)User-friendly software was developed to illustrate experiment results. The main aspects covered in the software included experiment design, data input, storage, display, and analysis. Variations in processes of plant growth ...
Soybean Response and Weed Control With Flumioxazin, and Sorption, Degradation, and Weed Control With Isoxaflutole (2000)Isoxaflutole is a new herbicide for selective use in field corn to control a wide range of grass and broadleaf species. It exhibits a new mode of action, inhibition of 4-hydroxyphenylpyruvate dioxygenase, an enzyme found ...
Molecular Genetics on the Genus Glycine: I. Phylogenetic Study of the Subtribe Glycininae. II. Development of a Universal Soybean Genetic Map (2000)During the last decade various soybean genetic linkage maps have been developed based not only on morphological and biochemical traits but also on molecular traits such as RFLP, RAPD, AFLP, and SSR data. None of these, ...
(2000)However, a greater diversity of herbicide physicochemical properties and in vitro potencies would expand the usefulness of this model.
