Conference Paper
One hundred fifty eight recombinant inbred lines (RILs) derived from a cross between the cultivars Tadmor (drought tolerant) and Er/Apm (drought susceptible) were grown at Ghwair agricultural research station in order to identify quantitative trait loci (QTL) for grain yield and its components. A linkage map including 87 AFLP markers assigned to 14...
Conference Paper
Random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) analysis was conducted to estimate the genetic diversity and relatedness among 10 wheat cultivars and landraces. Five out of 70 decamer random primers showed distinctly polymorphic bands when used to amplify genomic DNA. The primers yielded a total of 157 RAPD markers of which 150 were considered as polymorph...

Background: This study was conducted to evaluate the production of two fodder crops; common vetch (Vicia sativa L.) and Alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.) irrigated with treated wastewater. The study was implemented during summer 2015. Methods: Four water regimes were used in the experiment including: Irrigation with fresh water (control), fresh water su...

Background: The experiment was conducted at the Faculty of Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine, An-Najah National University, Palestine under growth chamber and greenhouse conditions. Methods: To study the effect of NaCl on germination, fifty seeds in each treatment for each cultivar were germinated on a filter paper in petri dishes moistened with...

Effective microorganisms (EM) are important beneficial fungi and bacteria mixed culture that is used as an inoculant to improve soil quality and health, enhance plant growth, yield, and quality. This study was conducted to evaluate the effect of inoculating various concentration of EM (50, 100 and 200 mL L-1) on growth of wheat (Triticum aestivum L...

abstract Water shortages in arid and semi-arid zones like Palestine, as anticipated, led to the search for new sources for agricultural use such as tertiary treated wastewater (TWW). The experiment was carried out during the seasons (2018–2019) at the Faculty of Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine, An-Najah National University, Palestine, to test t...

Fifteen barley landraces were collected from different localities in the West-Bank,-Palestine during 2009. A field experiment was conducted at the Faculty of Agriculture-An Najah National University to evaluate several agronomical traits of these landraces in 2010-2011 growing season. Cluster analysis was performed using the complete-linkage method...
Thesis
Full-text available
A total of 11 durum wheat varieties were grown in the green house to study the morphological differences: Six landraces, three commercial cultivars, and two introduced cultivars from ICARDA were further analyzed to detect variations among durum wheat varieties at DNA level using RAPD technique. The following characters were studied: Plant height, F...
