Some environmental effects on the water status of wheat
(Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1977)
The influence of soil moisture status and various meteorological parameters on the water relations of wheat were studies both in the field and under controlled environment conditions. Water potentials of the leaf and ear ...
Genetic, edaphic and procedural factors determining the inherent pasting properties of wheat starch
(Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1982)
A Minipaster apparatus, based on a Haake rotary viscometer but with a small sensor head resembling that of the Brabender Amylograph, was developed to investigate thermal pasting of starch water suspensions with starch ...
Components of grain yield and total nonstructural carbohydrates in wheat : a thesis submitted for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy in the University of Canterbury [Lincoln College]
(Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1985)
Responses of autumn-sown wheat crops to various agronomic inputs were investigated in three field experiments over two seasons, and the causes of yield variation were analysed by simultaneous carbohydrate measurements in ...
Response of wheat cultivars to chlorsulfuron and the effect of nitrogen availability
(Lincoln University, 1993)
Sensitivity of wheat cultivars to the herbicide chlorsulfuron was tested and mechanisms to explain their differential response determined. In addition, a sensitive wheat cultivar, Rongotea, was selected and the effect of ...
