    The development and adoption of conservation tillage practices for burley tobacco production in Kentucky, U.S.A

    PEARCE R.C.
    University of Kentucky, Dept. of Plant & Soil Sciences, Lexington, KY, USA
    The University of Kentucky has a long history of research and development on conservation tillage methods for row crop production. Kentucky farmers were among the first in the world to adopt conservation tillage for large scale corn and soybean production ...

    Influence of air-curing practices on accumulation of tobacco-specific nitrosamines in burley tobacco

    BURTON H.R.; BUSH L.P.
    University of Kentucky, Dept. of Plant & Soil Sciences, Lexington, KY, USA
    Previous studies by our laboratory have shown there is variability in accumulation of tobacco-specific nitrosamines (TSNA) in air-cured tobacco on a year to year, plant to plant, location to location and variety to variety basis. Little or no information ...

    University of Kentucky, Dept. of Agronomy, Lexington, KY, USA
    The gene responsible for conversion of nicotine to nornicotine in tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum L.) is reported to be simply inherited, but the phenotype of progeny is not always predictable. It is likely that there are some heritable factors, such as ...

    Phylloplanins of tobacco are defensive proteins deployed on tobacco aerial surfaces by short glandular trichomes

    WAGNER G.J.; SHEPHERD R.W.
    University of Kentucky, Dept. of Plant & Soil Sciences, Plant Physiology/Biochemistry/Molecular Biology Program, Lexington, KY, USA
    In plants, defensive proteins secreted to leaf aerial surfaces have not previously been considered to be a strategy of pathogen resistance, and the general occurrence of leaf surface proteins is not generally recognized. We found that leaf water washes of ...
