Speed of stolon movement was measured from time-lapse videos relative to stationary objects in the image.
Furthermore, this weed species is able to scramble several meters high among and over shrubs, capable of spreading prolifically from rooting at the nodes when they touch the soil with numerous joints and also its stolon can grow up to 5 m or more (Ipor and Baki, 1992).Barnes (1990) has documented that glyphosate, sodium chloride, paraquat and MSMA in combination with diuron, can be used to control drought grass.
harzianum has batter in improving tuber formation, increasing the size of the tubers as well as reducing the incidence of stolon canker as well as sclerotia formation on tuber.
Four harvest treatments were included: (i) 40, 55, and 70 days after transplanting (stolon and stem disease assessments) and (ii) after senescence (tuber disease assessment).
The average stolon diameter of all the thalli measured was 0.18 mm (Min=0.04 mm, Max= 0.34 mm), while frond length average was 5.3 cm (Min=0.79 cm, Max= 15.9 cm).
Stolons are creeping stems that spread outwards across the surface producing roots and leafing points as they go, acting as an energy storage reserve for the clover plant as well as allowing it to spread.
pintoi establishment techniques range from a complete soil tillage and planting with seed to zero tillage and planting with vegetative material (stolons) into an existing pasture [Argel, 1994].
Spreading types may produce stolons or rhizomes; both are types of specialized stems that grow in a horizontal fashion.
Freeze chamber analyses were performed on acclimating (fall) and acclimated (winter) stolon tissues in 2001-2002 and 2002-2003.
This grass also was thought to accelerate stolon production or vegetative biomass to increase spread in low light conditions, rather than expending energy on sexual reproductive bodies.
We previously suggested for Hydrocharis, where a si ngle axillary complex can contain both inflorescence and stolons, that the stolon is basically a sterilized inflorescence and that features of the inflorescence have become incorporated into the vegetative body.
lDean McKeown reaches 50 for the first time with a 951-1 treble at Hamilton-on Sharog's Royals (Richard Whitaker) in the claimer and a brace for for Jeremy Glover as Soucon lands the juvenile fillies' maiden while Stolon Time powers away with the nursery.
