But Stavely and other scientists around the country are rustproofing Phaseolus vulgaris, the common bean plant. That will safeguard this species' uncommon diversity of foods: green snap beans, yellow wax beans, and an assortment of dry beans--navies, pintos, great northerns, and others.
(2013), application of nitrogen at sowing supplies the requirements of common bean plants cultivated in irrigated systems in the winter and, thus, reduces the need for top-dressing nitrogen fertilization.
The team began by studying how rice and common bean plants react to normal and aberrant meaning any climate condition to which a variety of crop is not normally adapted to climate conditions, and identifying genes related to heat tolerance and higher yields.
Thus, any factor impairing P or K uptake by common bean plants can negatively affect plant development, pod filling, and consequently, grain yield.
(2005) reported that when common bean plants were subjected to water deficit, water loss was reduced by reduced transpiration.
We have three hypotheses: 1--The super early cycle common bean genotypes are a viable alternative for farmers with grain yield similar to that of traditionally grown crops; 2--The application of all N at sowing of the crop provides higher grain yield than the split application of N; and 3--The application of the total N at sowing provides significant changes in soil mineral N availability which affects the development of common bean plants. Therefore, the objective of this study was to measure the effects of N fertilization timing on soil ammonium and nitrate, the macro nutrient content in the leaves and grains and the grain yield of super early common bean genotypes.
Leaves were collected from the plants at seedling, flowering, and pod developmental stages when common bean plants were 2, 6, and 8 weeks old, respectively.
Larvae-injured common bean plants are yellowed and their leaves progressively dry (Amante & Figueiredo Junior 1971).
The experiment consisted of two sets, one set with common bean plants grown on lime-treated soil and the other set on lime-untreated soil.
The experiments at Riverside were established near a eucalyptus (Eucalyptus sp.) grove, where bumble bees build their nests, and close to experimental gardens, where flowers of several plant species may have attracted bees (bumblebees, honey bees, wild bees, etc.) during the flowering period of the common bean plants. The significance of year X location X entry also indicated that the magnitude of outcrossing rate among the entries was not associated with growth habit, market class, or maturity.
