    DEL PIANO L.; ABET M.; SORRENTINO C.; COZZOLINO E.; CUCINIELLO A.
    Istituto Sperimentale per il Tabacco, Scafati, Italy
    In order to evaluate lead distribution in the different parts of the tobacco plant, a greenhouse trial of experimental exposure to the heavy metal was performed in year 2000 and replicated in 2001. Six tobacco varieties were grown in pots, where lead had ...

    Selection of fungal isolates with antagonistic effect against Rhizoctonia solani (AG 4 and AG 2-1 Nt) and growth promotion on tobacco

    LAHOZ L.; NICOLETTI R.; PORRONE F.; RAIMO F.; COVARELLI L.; CONTILLO R.
    Istituto Sperimentale per il Tabacco, Scafati, Italy
    Plant disease control is dominated by an over-reliance on chemical pesticides, in order to increase yield and quality. Since at least the 1930s, fungi of several genus have been known to be able to control soil-borne pathogens. A number of isolates of ...

    Effects of lead and its sites of accumulation in different tobacco varieties in vitro exposed to lead

    DEL PIANO L.; ABET M.; SORRENTINO C.; CAFIERO G.; COZZOLINO E.; CUCINIELLO A.; CASTALDO-COBIANCHI R.
    Istituto Sperimentale per il Tabacco, Scafati, Italy
    A study was performed to evaluate the effects of lead and its sites of accumulation, at tissue and cell level, in tobacco plantlets in vitro exposed to the heavy metal and to reveal possible differences in immobilization depending on variety and/or type ...

    Genetic variability in Nicotiana tabacum and Nicotiana species as revealed by RAPD markers

    DEL PIANO L.; ABET A.; SORRENTINO C.; ACANFORA F.; DI MURO A.
    Istituto Sperimentale per il Tabacco, Scafati, Italy
    There is presently no information on the level of genetic variability in N. tabacum and in Nicotiana genus as revealed by RAPD markers, a knowledge which could be useful for taxonomic and breeding purposes. The purpose of this paper is to assess the ...

    In vitro selection of clones tolerant and/or resistant to large spectrum herbicides (Glyphosate and Sulfonylureas) in commercial cultivars of tobacco (Nicotiana sp.)

    CERSOSIMO A.; SORRENTINO C.; DEL PIANO L.; ABET M.
    Istituto Sperimentale per il Tabacco, Rovolone (VR), Italy.
    This study reports the survey on the variability generated by in vitro cultures in order to isolate possible mutants bearing a character of resistance and/or tolerance to large-spectrum herbicides (Glyphosate and Sulfonylureas). By using substrates: MS ...
