  • New Variety of Sweet Pepper (Capsicum annuum var. Grossum) Obtained at
           V.R.D.S. Buzău

    • Authors: Elena BARCANU-TUDOR, Elena Maria DRĂGHICI, Costel VÎNĂTORU
      Pages: 1 - 3
      Abstract: Obtaining new varieties of sweet peppers has been a major and permanent concern at V.R.D.S. Buzau. Autochthonous assortment in this species is relatively small compared to other species which led to the crop extension of foreign varieties that are commercialized at high prices without the expected results. Researches carried out during the period 1996-2017 aimed to contribute at the enrichment and diversification of autochthonous germplasm collection and also allowed introducing new valuable cultivars according to the market requirements nowadays.

  • Seed Germination and Physiological Response of Sunflower (Helianthus
           annuus L.) Cultivars under Saline Conditions

    • Authors: Carmen BEINSAN, Renata SUMALAN, Giancarla VELICEVICI, Adriana CIULCA, Radu SUMALAN
      Pages: 4 - 10
      Abstract: The purpose of the experiment was to highlight the germination of sunflower seeds affected by the presence of saline stress and the identification of tolerant genotypes. The biological material was represented by sunflower cvs. (Helianthus annuus L.): Coril, Select, Santiago and Fundulea-206. To simulate the saline conditions, germination solutions of sodium chloride (NaCl) were used with concentrations corresponding to the osmotic pressures -6 and -10 atm and the control seed hydration was performed with distilled water. Determination of seed germination, growth of seedling, percentage of plumules dry matter, chlorophyll content and free proline were performed. The experimental data obtained suppose the existence in the assimilation apparatus of sunflowers seedling subjected to stress a competitive chlorophyll/free proline biosynthesis processes. The experimental results regarding the effect of salinity on seed germination and seedling growth revealed important differences between genotypes. The radicle growth in the germination process were strongly affected by saline excess, with significant differences between cultivars. Saline stress results in significant reductions in the amount of chlorophyll, and high levels of free proline. It can be observed that with the increase of the stress level the percentage of the dry matter increases, indicating an accentuated water deficit.

  • Genetic Diversity Analysis and Phylogenetic Relationship among a
           Representative Collection of Spanish Pepper (Capsicum annuum) Landraces

      Pages: 11 - 14
      Abstract: Spain is one of the most important centers of diversity for Capsicum annuum peppers, and a plethora of ecotypes can be found throughout the country. These resources represent a valuable genetic pool which must be characterized in depth both morphologically and molecularly. The aim of the present work was to assess phenotypic and genotypic diversity and relationships within some Spanish pepper landraces. A collection of 12 Spanish pepper landraces and 15 foreign controls was characterized with a set of 46 descriptors from International Plant Genetic Resources Institute (IPGRI, now Bioversity International) and genotyped using Genotyping-by-Sequencing (GBS). The studied collection was genetically diverse. The morphological characterization allowed discrimination of the varieties through fruit size, growth habit and others traits. SNP-based phylogenetics clustered together Spanish accessions. Our results provide useful information of several different ecotypes to boost breeding programs.

  • Spectral Characterization of Difusse Par Irradiance under Tipuana Tipu

    • Authors: Gonzalo GURREA-YSASI, Vicente BLANCA, Ana FITA, Jaime PROHENS, Inmaculada FITA, Adrián RODRIGUEZ-BURRUEZO
      Pages: 19 - 20
      Abstract: Tipa (Tipuana tipu) is a common tree in gardens and carparks, although the shading effect of its canopy must be still characterised to assess the decrease of temperature and quality of irradiance. This work is a preliminary study aimed to assess the effect of shading of tree canopies on the diffuse irradiance pattern received at the soil level in comparison to other conditions. The shade provided by a group of Tipa trees, located at the Universitat Politècnica de València (Valencia, Spain), was evaluated in this experiment and compared to cloudy days and direct sun. Photosynthetic Photon Flux Density (PPFD) and red/near infrared ratios were recorded with a portable spectrometer. Measurements were recorded in January and February 2017, at 10h, 13h and 16h. Depending on the region of the spectrum and time of the day, PPFD values ranged from 0.05 to 0.42, 0.40 to 1.14, and 0.94 to 3.90 μmol·m-2·s-1, for Tipa shade, cloudy days and direct sun, respectively. The spectral analysis of PPFD in cloudy days revealed maximum values in the green region and minimum at near infrared region, while maximum PPFD for tipa shade was mostly found at near infrared, revealing higher importance of this spectral region compared to cloudy days.

  • Effect of Glasshouse Maintenance on the Quality of Irradiance Spectrum
           under Mediterranean Climates

      Pages: 21 - 22
      Abstract: Glasshouses in Mediterranean areas are mainly used for experimental or nursery purposes and the production of high value ornamental species. In addition, glasshouses may be covered by dust and other particles in these areas as rainfalls are relatively scarce. Consequently, the quality of photosynthetically active radiation (PAR) may be affected. In the present experiment we evaluated the effect of dirt on the PAR spectrum in glasshouses in Valencia (Spain), compared to glasshouses submitted to suitable maintenance and washing. Photosynthetic Photon Flux Density (PPFD) measurements were done in March 2017 at 13h, and visible, UV-C and near infrared regions were recorded with a portable spectrometer. PPFD maximum values differed depending on the spectral region and glass conditions, with higher values corresponding to the visible region. Thus, clean glass showed values of 609, 588 and 423 μmol/m2s for PPFDR, PPFDG and PPFDB, respectively and 436 and 34 μmol/m2s for PPFDIR and PPFDUV. In comparison to clean glass, dirty glass decreased PPFD in all regions, particularly UV and blue region.

  • Particular Aspects of Fruit Farming in the Southeast of Poiana Ruscă

    • Authors: Gheorghe Gavrilă HOGNOGI, Ana Maria POP, Pompei COCEAN, Alexandra Camelia POTRA, Nicoleta DAVID, Lelia PAPP
      Pages: 23 - 30
      Abstract: Alike some other territories in Transylvania, the area of Poiana Ruscă Mountains has been cultivated with fruit trees and vines, benefiting from favourable morphological, soil and climatic conditions. The purpose of our paper was to highlight the particularities of this representative occupation carried out by the local communities in the analyzed area. Through cartographic reconstructions we observed the diachronic evolution of the areas occupied with orchards and the valorisation and management of fruit products. Results confirmed that, despite the significant decline in fruit farming, the abandonment of orchards or the disappearance of nurseries, we can still find some local initiatives encouraging the practice of fruit growing.

  • National Governance Approach for Agriculture Land in Natura 2000 Areas.
           Evidence from Plovdiv District, Bulgaria

    • Authors: Yanka KAZAKOVA-MATEVA
      Pages: 31 - 39
      Abstract: The designation and implementation of Natura 2000 sites faced many challenges across most of the member states in the EC. Some related to consultation and involvement of stakeholders, funding the conservation objectives and providing compensation to land owners, farmers and foresters for restrictions on their land use. The national governments adopted different approaches to address these issues. The aim of the paper is to assess the governance approach for agricultural land in Natura 2000 in Bulgaria with a focus on the contribution of the Natura 2000 compensatory payments. The results suggest that the measure is instrumental in mitigating farmers’ frustration and in providing support to them; although its contribution to the favourable conservation status is still uncertain. Another weakness is the lack of awareness on Natura 2000 location and restrictions as well as on nature-friendly farming practices among farmers.

  • Seed Characteristics Diversity in Sponge Gourd (Luffa aegyptiaca Mill.)
           Germplasms from Hatay Region in Turkey

    • Authors: Kazım MAVİ, Kazim GÜNDÜZ, Dilek YILDIRIM, Fulya UZUNOĞLU
      Pages: 40 - 46
      Abstract: The objective of this study was to evaluate seed characteristics of sponge gourd, to establish a core collection of sponge gourd with the germplasm collected throughout the Hatay region. A mini-core collection was assessed for morphological performance and some seed traits. Substantial variations of seed characteristics: seed length, seed width, seed thickness (mm), seed index (length/width), seed size (length × width, mm2), seed colour, seed-coat surface, seed shape, seed wing, and 100-seed weight were investigated. Seed length, width and thickness were varied as 15.12-8.97 mm, 9.71-6.25 mm and 2.86-2.16 mm respectively. The seed sizes were determined from small (31 DÖ 06) to big (31 DE 04). Seed colours were ranged from black to white, even a brown colour like 07 MA 01. A hundred seed weights were observed as 16.43 g (31 AL 02) and 7.41 (31 DÖ 06). The results of dendrogram indicated that seed traits of the sponge gourd genotypes were separating in five groups. This collection of sponge gourds will be useful for the gene pools and a wide range of phenotypic variations to provide a good source of diversity for developing of sponge gourd cultivars in breeding programs.

  • The Role of Windbreaks in Attracting the Useful Avifauna – Case Study:
           Moara Domnească Didactic Farm

    • Authors: Cosmin Alexandru MIHAI, Florin STĂNICĂ
      Pages: 47 - 52
      Abstract: “Moara Domnească” is a didactic farm belonging to the University of Agronomic Sciences and Veterinary Medicine of Bucharest. Moara Domnească has an area of 520 ha, of which 65 ha of orchard. The orchard, but also a major part of the farm has a wind protection system consisting of windbreaks planted in 1920’s with English Oak (Quercus robur), Ash (Fraxinus excelsior), Norway Maple (Acer platanoides), and other species of shrubs from the spontaneous flora. Since 1860, Romania has become one of the first countries in the world to have developed forest windbreaks and shelterbelt. Both the establishment of windbreaks and scientific research have been specifically designed to limit the negative effects of the extreme continental climate. Even the windbreaks benefits are multiple and clear, their extension was limited in many areas where are extremely needed. Based on the ornithological observations carried out between 2015-2016, we found out that the forest windbreak plays an extremely important role on the orchard ecosystem, influencing positively the life of wild birds that find food, shelter and nesting places throughout the year.

  • After-Ripening Increased Seed Germination in Commercial Aubergine Seed

    • Authors: Eren OZDEN, Ibrahim DEMIR
      Pages: 53 - 58
      Abstract: This work tested the effect of after-ripening on seed germination of thirteen commercial seed lots from four open pollinated cultivars (Aydın Siyahı, Kemer, Pala and Topan) of aubergine (Solanum melongena L.). Seeds were stored (after-ripened) at 5 °C with at 9% seed moisture content over 14 days in the dark in hermetic conditions. After-ripened seeds were tested at 25 °C and 20/30 °C (16/8 h) together with a control at 20/30 °C for 14 days in petri dishes. Results indicated that after-ripening significantly (p < 0.05) increased total germination in six lots and normal germination in eight lots out of thirteen when germination was tested at 25 °C. Increases were also observed eleven lots in total and thirteen in normal germination percentages out of thirteen when seeds were tested at 20/30 °C. Cumulative germination showed that after-ripened seeds germinated faster than control either germinated at 25 or 20/30 °C. Results indicated that aubergine seed germination can be increased through after-ripening treatment which shows the presence of seed dormancy in this species.

  • Different Root Morphological Responses to Phosphorus Supplies in Grafted

      Pages: 59 - 61
      Abstract: Grafting technique is increasing thanks to its potential to produce plants more efficient and tolerant to biotic and abiotic stresses. Likewise, there is a growing interest in reducing inputs of fertilizers. The development of rootstocks suitable for low input agriculture is conditioned to the understanding of the changes on the root when facing such stresses. Our aim was to evaluate the morphological root response to Phosphorus (P) starvation of a rootstock selected for its good performance under low P conditions. Adige was grafted onto the selected rootstock and grown hydroponically in two different P concentrations, the selft-graft was done as control. Plants were then collected and analysed. Results showed that despite the differences in terms of P concentration among treatment the stress was not enough to cause a great biomass loss. However, there is evidence that individuals showed different root adaptations, modifiying root length, mass and volume, etc, under stress conditions, having the selected rootstock higher root length and volume under low P nutrient solution

  • Leaf Area and Its Relationship with Leaf Descriptors Elements in
           Liquidambar styraciflua L.

    • Authors: Daniela Sabina POŞTA, Florin SALA
      Pages: 62 - 67
      Abstract: This study aimed at determining the leaf area in Liquidambar styraciflua L. and at characterising the relationship between leaf area and leaf descriptors. The biological material was the species Liquidambar styraciflua L. We determined leaf area in 100 leaves (Figure 1) based on the size of median rib (L), leaf width at higher (W1) and lower (W2) lobe level, and on area constants (KA). The size of elements L, W1 and W2 were found by measuring with a precision of ±0.5 mm. Area constants in the species Liquidambar styraciflua L. were KA1 = 0.63, determined depending on leaf width at upper lobe width (W1), and KA2 = 0.81 in relation to the width W2 of the lower lobes. Between the scanned leaf area (SLA) and measured leaf area (MLA) and leaf descriptors (L, W1 and W2) we identified relations of interdependence statistically ensured: r = 0.960 to r = 0.971 for SLA; r = 0.951 to r = 0.981 for MLA W1, and r = 0.933 to r = 0.972 for MLA W2, respectively. Leaf descriptors L, W1 and W2 had a differentiated contribution in determining SLA and MLA. SLA was influenced by leaf length (L) with higher statistic safety (R2 = 0.963, p << 0.001, F = 1277.2) than leaf width at upper lobe width W1 (R2 = 0.943; p<<0.001; F = 797.7) and leaf width at the extremities of the lower lobes W2 (R2= 0.927, p << 0.001, F = 620.59).

  • Effect of the Genotype and Growing Conditions on the Main Phenolic
           Compounds in Capsicum Peppers

      Pages: 68 - 69
      Abstract: Capsicum peppers is one of the most important vegetables, with a well known nutritional properties, including phenolics. Breeding peppers adapted to organic agriculture and rich in bioactive compounds is of paramount importance for this sector since the demand of organic and healthy food is increasing in many countries. This is a preliminary study on the effect of genotype, growing conditions and their interaction on the main phenolics of peppers. Fruits from four Capsicum annuum (BGV-10582, Bierzo, Bola and Piquillo) and one C. chinense (ECU-994) accessions, were cultivated under organic and conventional practices and main phenolic compounds quercetin and luteolin were analysed by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). Differences were found among accessions for both compounds in the studied accessions, particularly ECU-994. Differences for each phenolic compound were also detected between growing systems. Moreover, considerable interaction between genotype and growing conditions was found, suggesting that there are ample opportunities for selecting peppers with high content in phenolics and specifically adapted to organic cultivation.

  • Viticulture Zoning in Montenegro

    • Authors: Svetozar SAVIĆ, Miško VUKOTIĆ
      Pages: 73 - 86
      Abstract: Montenegro’s viticultural regions and sub-regions were defined in the 2007 Law on Wine, based on the country’s empirical, traditional, historical and social heritage. However, during the process of defining these regions and sub-regions, the influence of climatic and soil factors crucial in the determination of dependent characteristics, such as the physiology of the grapevine and the quality of the grapes and wine, was not researched thoroughly enough. This work presents the climatic characteristics of the existing sub-regions, as well as the results of the climate’s impact on the physiological reactions of the most common domestic grape cv. Vranac (Vitis vinifera L.), facilitating a new viticultural zoning in Montenegro. Over a period of 56 years, the following climatic parameters were analysed: air temperature, precipitation, insolation and air humidity. These parameters suggest that all the sub-regions in Montenegro have uniform climatic parameters. The modification of certain climatic parameters is influenced by two large bodies of water – the Adriatic Sea and Lake Skadar – and by altitude. The duration of the individual phases and vegetation of the Vranac grape variety differed only slightly in the different sub-regions. As a reflection of the influence of climatic factors in different locations, Vranac grape and wine was analysed chemically and given a sensory evaluation. The analysed parameters indicate a nearly uniform chemical composition and sensory evaluation of all wines. Wines produced at lower altitudes were distinctive for their superior quality.

      Pages: 87 - 89
      Abstract: During the 2015-2016 periods in the frame of the experimental field of RDIVFG VIDRA, 5 round pepper lines, created at the Plant Breeding Department of the Institute were investigated under comparative plots for evaluation. As control the green pepper variety Galben superior was used. Several observations and morphological determinations were carried out aiming the following characteristics: total yield, number of fruits per plant, their shape and color. By comparison of the data regarding the total yield of the green pepper lines under investigation (average of the 2015-2016 period) one could notice that all the 5 lines assured a higher total yield to the control variety Galben superior. The values for total yield ranged between 51.8 t/ha and 52.5 t/ha, by comparison with control variety Galben superior that gave 31.5 t/ha. The results emphasized that the best behaviour had the lines L45 by comparison with the control variety.

  • Production of some Colored Potato Genotypes in Organic Culture

    • Authors: Rodica SOARE, Maria DINU, Cristina BABEANU, Mihnea MODRAN
      Pages: 90 - 94
      Abstract: The purpose of this study was to identify the cultivars of potatoes with good production capacity and high nutritional value under ecologically culture conditions. The biological material consisted of five new potatoes cultivars: Brasovean, Carpatin, Cranberry Red, Montain Rose, Purple Majesty and Blue Congo. These new, highly pigmented varieties have yellow, pink or red peel and pulp, due to its high anthocyanin content. In order to achieve the objective, the productivity elements were determined: number of tubers and medium weight/plant, productivity as well as starches, carbohydrates, vitamin C content and antioxidant capacity. The obtained results were statistically interpreted by the analysis of variance, and the differences between genotypes were estimated by the threshold of significance at p≤0.05%. Cultivar Carpatin recorded the best production (32.7 t/ha) and Cranberry red and Montain Rose cultivars recorded the highest content in vitamin C (17.6 respectively 18.64 mg/100g f.m) and Blue Congo with highest antioxidant capacity (162.65 DPPH μMTE/100g).

  • Comparative Study on the Economic Efficiency of Rapeseed Culture in
           Conventional and Organic Systems

    • Authors: Elena ȘURCĂ
      Pages: 95 - 103
      Abstract: From an economic point of view, efficiency implies the use of resources, of any kind, at maximum efficiency, or else the relation between effect and effort is over unit. In any kind of activity economic efficiency is the basis for its start. In the present paper, the level of economic efficiency for rape crops will be determined, according to two technological systems: conventional and organic. The revenue structure, and especially the expenditure, will be found in the income and expenditure budget of the culture. We will compare the value of production, production costs, but also yield or rate of return. In the continuation of the study, a set of indicators of economic efficiency will be calculated for each crop system, which will be subjected to a mirror analysis, to determine the feasibility of rapeseed crops as accurately as possible. Finally, the results will be presented, the profitability of the crop according to the system, the level of the profit and the recommendations regarding the future way of growing the rapeseed.
