Spatial Variation in Blooming and Yield in an Apple Orchard, in Romania

Abstract

The aim of this study was to analyse the spatial variation of blooming, yield and quality parameters, in an apple orchard, by using precision agriculture tools. This study is a preliminary step in order to create management zones, to take the management decisions and made the evaluation of the applied practices. The study was conducted in the Research and Development Station for Pomology Voinesti, Dambovita, on the 0.9 ha orchard. The orchard consists in Florina apple trees and Generos pollinator. The surface was mapped with GPS and the yield of each tree was manually harvested and weighed. Apple quality was evaluated in terms of: firmness, soluble solid content, juice pH. Also, in spring was determined the number of flowers/tree and the exact period of flowering. The interpolated maps were created using Surfer 8 software and the correlations between yield and quality have been established; some quality characteristics are negatively correlated with yield, like firmness.

Analysis of Groundwater Qualitative Parameters in the Hill and Plain Sector of Dambovita County – Romania

Abstract

Water intended for human consumption (whether natural or after applying appropriate treatment techniques) must comply with the values of quality parameters according to the laws and regulations in force. The geographical area analysed in this study covers part of Dambovita County and lies at the contact between the Outer Subcarpathian Hills at the Curvature and Candesti Piedmont, the High Plain of Targoviste and Titu Subsidence Plain. Considering that the population in this area is also supplied with water from individual wells, which capture surface aquifers, changes in some potability parameters may appear punctually, inducing a number of health impairments if consumed over a long period of time. 12 sample points have been chosen in localities considered to be vulnerable and a number of parameters (pH, Ca2+, Cl-) have been analysed in the laboratory. Analyses have revealed excessive MAC (Maximum Allowable Concentration) in some locations such as Glodeni and Gheboaia.

The Influence of Meteorological Phenomena “Frozen Rain” on the Forestry Vegetation. Case Study: Maierus Forest Dept., Brasov County (Romania)

Abstract

Liquid precipitation that freezes on contact with the surface of the underlying components represent a major risk meteorological phenomena affecting, among other things, the high proportion, forest vegetation. The phenomen occurs with a relatively high frequency, every few years, depending on specific mechanisms aggregation on atmospheric physics, needed to its genesis. Affected areas suffer significant changes in structure and composition of forest vegetation. Such a phenomen it was in the first decade of December 2014 on the northern slopes Persani Mountains and it affects an area of 2691.6 hectares of the Măieruş Forest Dept., in Brasov county, resulting 1.84486 million lei ( equivalent to approx. 412,000 euros) damages. Reducing the negative effects on the environment depends on how the administration made the harvesting of downed timber and reforestation of affected areas.

Exploration of Regeneration Potential of Extinct Plants Starting From Old Seeds, by in Vitro Technology

Abstract

The aim of the study is to try a systematic and rational exploration of regeneration potential of extinct taxons, starting from old seeds found in the soil or in the herbarium, to study their germination potential with the purpose of biodiversity conservation. The species involved in this study are: Achillea spinosa, Chenopodium wolfii. Several protocols for the in vitro propagation of the species, starting from the seed are described in this study. The presence of callus during micropropagation of plants has also been the object of research for different compositions of nutritive medium.
