Effect of Drought Stress on Oilseed Quality
Entry ID: USDA0077

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: "Effect of Drought Stress on Oilseed Quality" is a complex of
datasets on a series of experiments over the last 5 years of
research on drought stress. Datasets include:

1. agronomic: growth, flowering, fruiting, retention of seed,
soil, plant physiology, opening of stomates;

2. stress data: normal plant level and impact of drought on
growth and retention of bolls;

3. data on temporal response to drought stress: devastation and
severity of drought (severe, moderate);

4. seed weight, fiber weight, protein content, and
germinability;
5. fiber characteristics (mature vs. immature); and,

6. biochemical analysis of fiber and seeds.
