Pre-germinated seeds or seedlings are directly planted in soil or broadcast in flooded field under this technology. Rice cultivation is responsible for 10% of GHG emissions from agriculture. In developing countries, the share of rice in GHG emissions from agriculture is even higher, e.g., it was 16% in 1994.
Compositions and Methods for Improving Rice Growth Resistance to blast and Restricting Arsenic UptakeType:ProductObjective:
This invention relates to the use of microbes isolated from a rhizosphere of rice to provide anti pathogenic effect on rice plants improve biomass and growth and restrict arsenic uptake by rice plants.
Rice is an essential food source for more than 50% of the world’s population. Heat and drought stress are important factors limiting rice production exacerbated by the impending threat of climate change. Stress tolerant cultivars are needed to expand rice production. Drought tolerant varieties have been developed but in narrow genetic backgrounds characterized only in simulated growing conditions.
The presence of lead kills most bacteria making it impossible to bioremediate soil contaminated with lead. This bacterium is able t o survive and bioconcentrate lead on or in its membrane which probably allows it to survive as well as to remove lead from contaminated soils The use of a bacteria for on-site remediation of soils by accessing the soil to a bioreactor with encapsulated bacterium that can be separated later to the soils or using a membrane to immobilize the bacterium. This is a soil organism which will survive in the soil at pHs of soils (around 4).
Hyperion® is a distinct variety of dogwood tree that it is the result of crossing two varieties (Cornus kousa x Cornus florida hybrid and Cornus kousa). Its large creamy white flowers almost completely cover the tree in an overlapping manner. Attractive strawberry-like fruit are also produced and leaf colors range from a glossy dark green in the summer months to shades of yellow purple and orange during the fall months. Growth is very vigorous with dense branching low to the ground and upright branches.
