1327. Claudius, G.R. and R.S. Mehrotra. 1973. Root exudates from lentil seedlings in relation to wilt disease.. Plant Soil 38:315-320.
Lentils at 21 day age had root exudates that contained glycine and phenylalanine, which inhibited the germination of spores of Fusarium oxysporum f. lentils; there was less disease incidence when plants were older than 21 days and inoculated with the pathogen. T: fungal growth.
1300. Cheema, S.S., D.S. Kler and D.S. Grewal. 1985. Improve wheat yields through bi-directional sowing.. Indian Farming, 35:7-9.
Experiments for 8 seasons showed that bi-directional sowing suppresses weeds, minimises the incidence of powdery mildew and brown rust. Primary yield contributing character was the higher number of effective tillers per unit area. Uniformly spaced plants without overcrowding within the rows, get more solar radiation. Relatively less penetration of light to ground surface resulted in lower soil temperature in bi-directional sowing.
