Leaves Chlorophyll and Active Iron Content
Figure 1 represents leaves chlorophyll and active iron of Le Conte pear as affected by different iron concentrations used in this work.
In general, both leaf chlorophyll content and active iron gradually increases by increasing the concentration (Conc.) of iron. The highest significant were achieved by high Conc. (1000 and 2000 ppm) with no differ between them, except the 2nd season in active iron. Meanwhile, the lowest significant recorded by the check treatment (foliar with water) as compare with other treatments in both studied seasons. Our results are in agreed with many studies were tested iron (II) sulfate as a foliar fertilizer in several fruit crops led to increases in leaf chlorophyll

The highest statistical P content revealed with low level of Fe at 250 ppm (0.22 & 0.24 %), then Fe at 500 ppm (0.16 & 0.17 %). While, the significant reduction came by the high Fe level 2000 ppm (0.10 & 0.11%) respectively in both seasons, our results were agreement with (Malvi, 2011) mentioned that there were antagonism between iron and phosphorus especially in the high levels.
Leaf K content: Leaves potassium concentration gradually increased by increasing iron levels. Fe at 2000 ppm recorded the highest significant increment of K content (2.41 & 2.56 %), Fe at 1000 ppm came next (2.14 & 2.27 % respectively). The lowest statistical was found by the control treatment (1.82 & 1.93 %) consecutively in the 1st and the 2nd seasons, the previous results are in line with (Malvi, 2011) mentioned that were a harmony between two mineral nutrients (Fe and

The best treatment induced the highest statistical increase of Ca content by ferrous sulphate dose at 500 ppm (1.63 & 1.73 %). Followed by 1000 ppm (1.60 & 1.70 %), respectively. But the control treatment gave the lowest decrease of leaf Ca content (1.36 & 1.46 %) and the high level of iron 2000ppm (1.42 & 1.50%) consecutively, in the two seasons.
The results in case of calcium agree with (Malvi, 2011), proved that there is relationship between high iron levels and leaf calcium content. The reduction of leaf Ca content it may be due to the presence of antagonism between high iron level and calcium.
Leaf Mg content: From data in Table 1, Leaf content of magnesium was response slightly or no affected by all treatments. Ferrous sulphate sprayed at levels 500, 1000 and 2000 ppm were had a positive effect on leaf Mg content as compared with 250 ppm and unsprayed trees in both seasons. This results are in harmony by Twyman (1959) found that Increasing the total iron supply increases decreasing concentrations phosphorus, calcium and magnesium in leaves.

    It reached the maximum biomass of 2.32 g/L at 36 h and then the growth was retarded. Obtained final biomass was 1.32 fold higher than linoleic acid that produced maximum amount of PHA. Finally it yields 0.32 g/L of PHA with 14.8% PHA content from the resulting biomass which is lower than other carbon sources employed in shake flask cultivation.

    The mortality rate gradually decreased from 40%, 40%, 20%, 20%, to 0%. This supports the hypothesis because the greater dilutions had a higher mortality rate while the smaller dilutions had lower mortality rates. However, the upstream data was also convincing. The greatest dilution, 1:4, had a mortality rate of 80%, which is greater than on site. This could be considered an outlier because it seems random compared to the rest of the upstream dilution rates.…

    (2009) evaluated the effects of three levels of nitrogen and potassium (300, 600 and 900 g/tree/year) and two levels of phosphorus (300 and 600 g/tree/year) on fruit quality of guava. They observed that with increasing nitrogen and potassium doses there is no significant increase in fruit TSS but when potassium fertilizer applied then significant increased in fruit TSS. Ghosh et al., (2012) reported the highest fruit TSS was observed when farmyard manure was applied @ 20 kg along with nitrogen 400 g, phosphorus 100 g and potash 300 g/plant/year was applied in…

    Our results did support our hypothesis. As you can see in Table 1 when alcohol was administered to the daphnia their heart rates did slow down. The average heart rate when alcohol was administered was 92 BPM versus the baseline heart rate average of 191 BPM. When lactic acid was administered their heart rates also went down to 157 BPM. When caffeine was added their heart rates went up to an average of 193 BPM, so this was just a tad higher than the baseline rate of 191 BPM.…

    Trial 1 and Trial 3 are very close in the amount of oxygen produced; Trial 1 produced 0.0022 mL more than Trial 3, as seen in Table 4. Trial 2 produced the third most oxygen and Trial 4 didn’t produce any. These calculations mostly support the hypothesis by showing a full light intensity trial to have produced the most oxygen per gram of elodea. The number of leaves in each trial was counted so that calculations of the amount of oxygen produced by each leaf could be made, as seen in Figure 8b. Figure 7 displays these calculations; the results are similar to the other results previously explained, with Trial 3 producing the most amount of oxygen per leaf, then Trials 1, 2 and 4 producing less.…

    Decline in the energy output lowered 2015 revenues by about 16% over the SFS EF AM Base Case. The 2015 maintenance expenses were slightly higher than the SFS EF AM forecast (~4.1%), due to the higher WTGs and the balance-of-plant maintenance related costs. The 2015 increase in the maintenance costs was offset by the lower insurance premiums, land lease costs, and the property taxes. The net change was about a 3% positive variance over the SFS EF AM Base Case operating costs. Total revenues for 2015 were about $20.1 million and the total O&M costs were $5.2 million.…

    From Graph 1, we can see that 5% acetic acid has the largest amount of casein precipitates, indicates that the pH value of casein is closest to 4.6. It is because addition acid adds to the milk, it will decrease the pH of casein, and neutral casein will precipitate. [1] [2] 10% acetic acid has lower amount of casein precipitates, indicates that the pH value of casein is not close to 4.6, too much acids are added and few of the casein precipitates dissolve. It is because more acid adds to the milk; it will decrease the pH of casein more, and less neutral casein will precipitate as few of casein will precipitate and dissolve again. [1] [2] 15% acetic acid has lower amount of casein precipitates, indicates that the pH value of casein is faraway to 4.6, too much acids are added and some of the casein precipitates dissolve.…

At 85 and 120 days of incubation, changes in the composition of OCC, Ob and Oa were not significantly different between pre-treatment method and species of white rot fungi. However, at day 50, OCC increase was higher in pasteurized bagasse (p=0.008) whereas Oa was higher in autoclaved bagasse…
