An enclosure for acclimatizing a micro-propagated plantlet includes a sealed growing chamber for the plantlet.
The enclosure has a closable opening for providing nutrients to the plantlet and a humidity control to selectively reduce the humidity within the chamber over time to acclimatize the plantlet.
Upon transplanting, the prop-tube with the plant, cutting, tissue-cultured plantlet, or seeds therein are positioned within transplant liner tray cells.
Further provided are methods of making a root assay by contacting green tissue with a first rooting medium to produce a plantlet and a plurality of roots.
The method enables to produce a plant seedling with good efficiency.
One embodiment is intended to be used to support an established seedling and may contain additives beneficial to the development of the seedling such as nutrients, growth stimulants or herbicides.
Tolerance to cold: plantule: high, flowering time: medium; tolerance to high water (40-50): high
Speed of plantule development: high; level of fertiliser required: medium; yield at processing: 55 %.
A plurality of boxes for raising seedlings are disposed between the partitions of the tray members to raise young rice plants and include a plurality of through holes in the bottom surface thereof.
This invention relates to seedlings which demonstrate better emergence characteristics when grown in darkness and improved seedling growth when grown under low-light levels.
The plants of this invention display unopened, compact leaves during seedling emergence in the darkness and reduced etiolation of seedings grown in low-levels after emergence.
The ZMNAM gene, a putative transcriptional factor, may play an important role in endosperm development, which may further affect kernel size, plant vigor during germination and at the early seedling stage.
