Context 1
... nutri- tion with 5% was significantly higher than the 50% in one dose but not compared to the splitted 50% fertili- zation. In bean the effect of splitting the dose is significant compared to all levels of nutrition except for the 5% nutrition (Table 5). ...
Context 2
... the effect of splitting the dose our hypothesis has not been supported by the results obtained. The splitting of the dose was expected to improve the growing conditions and lead to higher values of the para- meters considered in this analysis in both species and the results show mainly the contrary (Table 3; Table 4; Table 5). Even if there is a change in the shoot-root ratio due to different nutrition treatments (Table 2), it's not significant and goes against Hoog and Cooper (1963) whom suggestion is that the splitting of dose in the first weeks of life has great repercussions on the growth of plants. ...
