plant material for human health within supplement markets, the purpose of this study was to determine the effect of drying conditions on water content, measured dry matter content, and stability of pigments (carotenoids and chlorophylls) in kale and

regular farming practices; and 2) determine growing conditions needed to optimize total dry matter yield. Factors tested were light, water, and nutrients. The effect of the growing conditions tested on flavonoid content in skullcap will be reported

stinging nettle. In particular, examination of dry matter allocation in stinging nettle as affected by mineral nutrition is important because the species holds promise as a source of multiple products. It can be grown as a vegetable or medicinal herb with

example, some models consider yield components ( Higashide 2018 , 2022 ) and dynamic dry matter partitioning to fruits ( Heuvelink 1996 ; Marcelis 1994 ; Marcelis et al. 2006 ). The former model was based on photosynthesis and crop parameters (i

found that an increase in dry matter production increases fruit set; in contrast, other studies found that an increase in the fruit load on the stem has decreased the fruit set ( Heuvelink et al., 2004 ; Kleijbeuker and Lee, 2019 ; Marcelis et al

sweetpotato breeding efforts in the United States have focused on development of orange-fleshed, low dry-matter, tablestock cultivars. As a result, little information is available for critical bioproduct production traits such as DM, starch content, total

bush tea plants were planted in a randomized complete block design. Thirty bush plants were used as replicates leaving buffer trees. In wild bush tea, 50 plants were randomly tagged. Trial 3. Seasonal and cumulative dry matter production in bush tea

The higher productivity of modern fruit tree cultivars, compared with wild trees, is mostly related to their higher partitioning of dry matter into fruit [i.e., higher harvest index (HI)] ( Patrick, 1988 ), rather than to differences in
