Allelopathy in an integrated rye-cotton-beef cattle system
Small grain cover crops offer opportunities for grazing but effects of cover crops on the following row crop are not well understood. Beginning in 1998, rye (Secale cereale L.) planted alternately each September in a ...
Relative contribution of insect and plant sugars to cotton fiber stickiness
(Texas Tech University, 2003-05)
The analysis of cotton burrs
Functional characteristics of genes involved in brassinosteroid signaling in cotton
(Texas Tech University, 2003-12)
Cotton fibers are highly elongated single celled trichomes that grow from the seed integument. Elongation of fiber cells begins almost after ovule fertilization and continues for approximately 20 days. In this study, I ...
Preemergence/postemergence pyrithiobac combinations control red morningglory and devil's-claw in cotton
(Texas Tech University, 1999-08)
Field experiments in 1997 and 1998 evaluated cotton weed control and yield comparing a herbicide program utilizing sequential preemergence (PRE) and postemergence (POST) pyrithiobac combinations to standard PRE treatments ...
Methodology for the detection and quantification of the white specks phenomenon in cotton yarn
(Texas Tech University, 2001-05)
An accepted reference test for accurately quantifying white speck count per unit of dyed yarn length or per unit of area of cloth does not exist.
Isolation and characterization of cDNAs that are preferentially expressed in cotton fiber
(Texas Tech University, 1995-05)
Cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) fibers are elongated epidermal cells of the ovule. In view of the commercial desirability for long fibers, the study of factors involved in controlling the extent of fiber growth is important. ...
Developmental regulation in cotton cell wall proteins under different thermal environments
(Texas Tech University, 1992-08)
Two cotton racestocks, T25 and T169, respond to drought stress differently. In the field, T25 leaves remain turgid whereas T169 leaves wilt under environmental stress. T25 is considered to be a drought tolerant cotton line, ...
Electrophoretic protein differences between selected varieties and lines of upland cotton
(Texas Tech University, 1970-12)
One of these problems is caused by climatic conditions which dictate the use of stormproof varieties of cotton in the above mentioned area, Economic returns from cotton in this area would generally be greater if adapted ...
