n
(Botany) an inflorescence in which the flowers are borne along the main stem, with the oldest flowers at the base. It can be simple, as in the foxglove, or compound. See panicle

2008), who reported that of the five genotypes analyzed (BRS 149 Nordestina, BRS 188 Paraguacu, EBDA MPA 17, Mirante 10, and Sipeal 28) in the Reconcavo Baiano region, Sipeal 28 had the highest performance for nearly all of the production components: raceme weight per plant, fruit weight per raceme, seed weight per raceme, fruit weight per plot, seed weight per plant, seed weight per plot and seed production potential.
Total and marketable yields were evaluated, besides the technical parameters (number of fruits per plant and per raceme, mean mass of fruits and total shoot dry matter).
Chlorophyll content was measured using the portable chlorophyll meter Minolta SPAD-502 in 10 points perplot; d) Nutritional analysis of leaves: the third fully expanded leaf from the apex to the base of the plant was collected at full flowering, totaling approximately 200g green matter per sample and one sample per plot; e) At five fully-expanded inflorescences per plot immediately before threshing (seeds maturation), it was determined: number of racemes per inflorescence, maximum length of raceme, mean length of raceme, length of inflorescence axis (between the insertion point of the first to the last raceme in the inflorescence), and number of spikelets per raceme.
Path analysis depicted that pods per raceme influenced positively and directly seed yield (pc=0.
Grevillea flowers occur in racemes and there are around 40 individual flowers on each raceme.
Which word can mean a raceme of flowers, a young deer antler, and a sharp metal object?
This orchid has a raceme of rose/purple flowers atop an erect stem.
Similarly, significant SCA and GCA effects were noted for days to flowering, early maturity, primary branches, secondary branches and pods per raceme (Nassimi et al.
Inflorescences in axillary raceme of triads, 1 per axil, 6-7 cm in length, 12-16(-18) triads per inflorescence, branches of inflorescence cylindrical, acute bracts at the base of the branches of the inflorescence, middle bract similar to the laterals.
Furthermore, a pattern of a higher fruit production in the central zone of the raceme, as observed in Myrosmodes cochleares, Epilobium dodonaei, and E.
The main morphological features are focused on leaf shape and insertion, raceme length and its disposition, bract shape, relative bract length, number, shape and size of the perianth sections and the site of insertion of the staminal filaments on the nectariferous disc.
A greater floral display, based on raceme and flower counts per genet, was positively related pods inflated, and during some years, to seeds matured, but showed no relationship to weevil counts (Table 3).
