Red raspberry ( Rubus idaeus ) has a relatively low harvest index, i.e., the relationship of harvestable crop to vegetative growth. When cultured in plastic tunnels or greenhouses, cane growth of raspberry plants is even more vigorous than in the

fertilization practices should be modified to address potential nutrient limitations. In this study, we selected garden chrysanthemum as a vegetative growth model as it represents a traditional greenhouse crop with high nutrient demands ( Cavins et al., 2000

Little is known about the morphology of okra (Abelmoschus esculentus Moench) plant. This information is critical to understanding of plant growth and possible factors limiting yield. Therefore, a field study was conducted during 1989 to determine the changes in leaf number, leaf dry weight and stem dry weight in okra during the fruiting period. Four okra genotypes, PI-178818, PI-211573, Lee and Clemson spineless, were planted in randomized complete block design with four replications. All four genotypes had similar stem dry weight, but differed significantly in leaf number and leaf dry weight. During the reproductive period, 42% of new leaves, 61% of leaf dry weight and 82% of stern dry weight were formed. PI-178818 had highest leaf number and maximum leaf dry weight, but produced lowest fruit yield. The results suggested that since vegetative growth and fruiting proceeds simultaneously in okra, partitioning of dry weight to pod maybe critical for high okra yields.

TWR may be critical in determining suitable locations for population augmentation. The objective of this study was to experimentally test the impact of light availability on the vegetative growth of TWR ex situ. Because light availability may be an
