    The effect of genetic resistance against meloidogyne spp. in tobacco on nematode populations

    BOTHA-GREEFF M.S.; VAN BILJON E.R.; CLAASSEN A.
    ARC, Tobacco & Cotton Research Insitute, Rustenburg, South Africa
    An integrated nematode control research strategy, with the accent on genetic resistance, crop rotation and chemical control, is presently followed at TCRI. Promising tobacco breeding lines with resistance or tolerance against Meloidogyne javanica and M. ...

    Using changes in electrical conductivity and sucrose content of flue-cured tobacco leaves to assess ripeness more objectively

    NOLTE C.R.
    Tobacco and Cotton Research Institute, Rustenburg, South Africa
    No objective method to measure ripeness of flue-cured tobacco exists at this stage. Leaf ripeness is still assessed in a subjective manner according to leaf colour. Several factors, such as water logging, under fertilization and cultivar differences can ...

    Evaluation of chilean nitrates as top dressers in production of light soil flue-cured tobacco in India

    CHARI M.S.; RAMAKRISHNAYYA B.V.; REDDY P.R.S.; PRASADA RAO J.A.V.
    Central Tobacco Research Institute (CTRI), Rajahmundry (A.P.) India
    Three chilean nitrate fertilizers i.e. sodium nitrate (16-0-0), sodium potassium nitrate (15-0-14) and potassium nitrate (13-0-45) were evaluated as top dressers for light soil flue-cured tobacco by conducting bulk trials at six locations in Northern ...

    Comparing drip and sprinkler irrigated flue-cured tobacco in South Africa

    DIPPENAAR M.C.; BARNARD C.; PRETORIUS T.; STEENKAMP C.J.
    Tobacco and Cotton Research Institute, Rustenburg, South Africa
    Low yield and poor leaf quality from tobacco under sprinkler irrigation can often be ascribed to poor management, faulty design and bad maintenance of equipment. Many crops as well as tobacco responded well to the high moisture regime provided by drip ...
