Article
Seed germination in Stevia rebaudiana is poor and seedlings are difficult to achieve, thus the generative reproduction of this plant is limited. The aim of our studies was to investigate the stages of female and male gametophyte development along with pollen viability and pollen germination. Although our results showed the proper way of stevia male...

Non-degradable polypropylene nonwovens are difficult to dispose and their utilization represents high economic costs. This study was conducted on lettuce cultivated during the spring and autumn seasons in the southern part of Poland to test biodegradable nonwovens as plant covers. Several nonwovens were developed from aliphatic-aromatic copolyester...

Steviol glycosides (SvGls) are plant secondary metabolites belonging to a class of chemical compounds known as diterpenes. SvGls have been discovered only in a few plant species, including in the leaves of Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni. Over the last few decades, SvGls have been extensively researched for their extraordinary sweetness. As a result, the...

Floating row covers are important pre-harvest factors for maximizing the yield of vegetable crops grown under open-field conditions. It is necessary to replace oil-based nonwoven covers with biodegradable ones that are environmentally friendly. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of biodegradable nonwoven covers, made of aliphatic-...
Chapter
This book covers the scientific basis of biology and production of carrots and related Apiaceae crops, with updated technical crop management content. This new edition is divided intro three sections: (i) crops' importance and main features; (ii) carrots, from their genetic diversity and breeding to cropping systems, pests and disease management, q...

Polypropylene (PP) covers are used in radish (Raphanus sativus L. var. sativus) production to provide better microclimate for improving yield and quality, but disposing of non-degradable covers is difficult and expensive. In this work, nonwovens prepared from biodegradable polymers (aliphatic-aromatic copolyesters with and without fatty acid dimers...
Article
The objective of this study was to evaluate the development and the quality of leaves from several S. rebaudiana Bertoni strains cultivated under temperate climate conditions in the tunnel and in the open field in the relation to the photosynthetic activity. Investigated stevia strains differed significantly in terms of whole plant and leaf morphol...

Herb and underground organs of dropwort have been used as medicinal raw materials. Decrease of natural resources of this species results in the necessity to introduce it into cultivation. In this study accumulation of biomass and phenolic compounds in underground organs of cultivated dropwort during two years of plant vegetation was evaluated. Unde...

The content and composition of sterol compounds in wild growing great burnet (Sanguisorba officinalis L.) populations were determined. The herb and underground organs of this plant were collected from 10 natural sites in Poland. The HPLC analysis revealed the presence of 5 sterol compounds, namely β-sitosterol, β-sitosterol D-glucoside, campesterol...

The effect of propagation term and method on the growth and fresh herb productivity of sage and balm cultivated in pots The growing of sage ( Salvia officinalis L.) and balm ( Melissa officinalis L.) in pots for the purpose of obtaining fresh culinary herbs was conducted during four terms from spring to autumn. The objective was to determine the po...
Article
Abstract: The aim of the investigation was to compare 10 populations of great burnet growing wild in Poland in respect of phenolic compounds accumulation. Total content of tannins and phenolic acids were determined according to Polish Pharmacopoeia and qualitative analysis by HPLC. District differences in the content of determined phenolic compoun...
Article
The herbs of lemon balm, oregano, and peppermint were analysed immediately after harvest and after drying to determine their antioxidant activity and content of total phenolics, l-ascorbic acid, and carotenoids. The strongest inhibition of linoleic acid (LA) peroxidation was found for fresh and dried oregano. For peppermint and lemon balm it was si...
Article
Changes in the thiocyanate content in hypocotyl-roots and leaves of radish were observed in a two-year field experiment. Six cultivars were tested: early radish (Rex and Ostergruss Różowa), Japanese radish (Tokinashi and Minowase Summer Cross F1), and winter radish (Monachijska Biała and Murzynka). A significant diversification in thiocyanate conte...
Article
Relationships between radish thiocyanate content and its dry weight, the content of sugar, protein, fibre, ascorbic acid, some minerals, the incidence of plant shooting, the firmness and pithiness of storage-roots, and the ratio of leaves to storageroot (wt/wt) were investigated. The analysis of linear correlation was based on numerous data from th...
Article
In a four-year field experiment six radish cultivars were tested: 'Rex', 'Ostergruss Rozowa' of early type; 'Tokinashi', 'Minowase Summer Cross Fi' of Japanese daikon type; 'Monachijska Bia3a', 'Murzynka' of winter type. Yield, tendency to shooting, and pithiness were assessed. The content of dry weight, soluble sugar, thiocyanate, ascorbic acid, c...
