  • With suitable climate conditions and careful scheduling, it's even possible to harvest three crops of brassicas in one growing season. (hobbyfarms.com)
  • Our early spring transplants get planted the beginning of May, with all varieties of brassica crops seeded or transplanted by mid-May. (hobbyfarms.com)
  • This allows us to continually harvest our brassica crops from early July to mid-October, with salad greens harvestable from early June to mid-October. (hobbyfarms.com)
  • Prolonged use of auxinic herbicides has resulted in the evolution of resistance to these herbicides in some biotypes of Brassica kaber (wild mustard), a common weed in agricultural crops. (weedscience.org)
  • This document is intended to provide background information on the biology of Brassica carinata , its identity, geographical distribution, reproductive biology, related species, the potential for gene introgression from B. carinata into relatives, and details of the life forms with which it interacts. (gc.ca)
  • Many of the familiar brassicas have a long growing season which overlaps from one year into the second and this can make them awkward to fit into a rotation plan. (getreading.co.uk)
  • The hypothesis that nucleolar dominance in plants is correlated with physical characteristics of rRNA gene intergenic spacers is not supported in Brassica . (pnas.org)
  • If we can determine how the Brassica plasmid moves between the cytoplasm and mitochondria, it has the potential to be used as a vector to target individual gene sequences into plant mitochondria and direct the synthesis of specific RNA molecules and proteins within the organelle. (unl.edu)
