- ItemCleft grafting of almond and apricot onto GF677 rootstock(2021-05-27) Badran, Sameer; Abd, Yaseen; Mashni, RaneenRecently, stone fruit plantation has been is increased in the West Bank , mainly under treated waste water, therefore there is a need for producing stone fruit trees, the attributes of the GF rootstock make is appropriate for our soil and climate conditions, as well as irrigation. propagating of the GF is difficult and has to be through different technique, the rootstock is difficult to be imported , and there are many restrictions to purchase it from Israel, therefore, producing the GF rootstock commercially is vital and important to support fruit tree plantation in the West Bank.

- ItemBiology and Management of Downy Mildew Disease on Cucumber Grown Under Plastic-house Conditions(2020-07-02) Draghmeh, Ahmad; Awashra, Hassan; Abu Saif, Hisham; Mezyed, Osaid; Batta, YaqoubCucurbit downy mildew caused by Pseudoperonospora cubensis is currently the most destructive disease of cucumbers for both ﬁeld and glass-house production in Europe and elsewhere (Lebeda 1984). Knowing the biology and ecology of the pathogen may serve in preventing the disease and in knowing the basic abiotic factor influencing infection with P. cubensis is the free leaf moisture
- ItemA Study of Stem Rot Disease Caused by Sclerotinia Sclerotiorum on Eggplants Grown in Plastic-houses and its Control(2020-07-01) DaQah, Rashed; Abu Rumailah, Najah; Tubeh, Anwar; Batta, YaqoubSclerotinia sclerotiorum de Bary is a Major of soil borne plant pathogen, it belongs to the Order: Heliotiales , Subclass : Euascomycetes , Class : Ascomycetes. This fungus is responsible for causing root, crown, and stem rot, Heavy planting and moist and cool environments (Optimum temperatures for growth range from 15 to 21 ℃) will produce an abundance of mycelium and sclerotia (plant pathology / NNU2016) Symptoms of infection are in the form of growths of cottony yarn? fungal white in color in the sites of injury, and then expand to include parts of the injury area.In addition to that, there is withering of leaves and their staying in contact with the affected branches, as well as attacking the fungus of the affected branch marrow and noticing the massive growth of fungal growths and the appearance of black stone bodies in the affected areas . Control of disease on crops can depend greatly on cultural, biological, and chemical practices, Cultural practices include planting crops at lower densities and higher row spacing to promote air circulation and create microclimates, and use resistance cultivars.
