- ... Field trials of fibre flax were sown in 2002 and 2003 comprising 29 and 26 flax varieties, respectively. In 2002, two nitrogen treatments of 40 and 80 kg ha⁻¹ were imposed. The trials were sprayed with a desiccating herbicide prior to retting at 35 and 15 days after midpoint of flowering in 2002 and 2003, respectively, and were harvested once retting had completed. Fibre was extracted from the fla ...

- ... Cucurbit downy mildew, caused by Pseudoperonospora cubensis, is among the most devastating diseases of cucurbitaceous plants. In spite of improved cultural practices and breeding for resistant cultivars, chemical control is still a very important tool to manage the disease. During the last several decades, many fungicides from various chemical classes have been developed. The occurrence of strains ...
