    Abstract: The production and productivity of barley primary determined from the status its growth, phonological and agronomical parameters. But the direct and indirect effect of parameters as well as high its association with yield can’t determine until correlation and regression was done. Therefore a field experiment was conducted on two different site of l... Show More

    Abstract: Cucumber green mottle mosaic virus (CGMMV) is one of the most important viruses affecting Cucurbitaceae crops. It has been found all over the world. Once spread, it may cause significant loss on economic crops. During a project from 2019 to 2021, occurrence of Cucumber green mottle mosaic virus (CGMMV) on main leguminosae crops (Pisum sativum, Vici... Show More

    Abstract: The genomic asymmetry in the nonrandom retention and expression of controlling genes for some traits from one parental diploid is obvious in some natural and synthetic allopolyploids, and has the evolutionary implications. Here we review the genomic asymmetry for the morphological performance in three cultivated Brassica allotetraploids and some in... Show More
