Barley seed radiosensitivity following post-hydration in oxygen-, nitrogen- and nitrous oxide-saturated water. I. Influence of caffeine and t-butyl alcohol

Dry (approximately 3.5 and 4.0 per cent moisture content) barley seeds were exposed to 350 Gy of 60Co- gamma-rays in vacuo and post-hydrated at 4 degrees C for 8 h in O2-, N2-, or N2O-saturated water. The effect of caffeine and t-butyl alcohol (t-BuOH) dissolved in the post-hydration medium on the magnitude of damage developing under these three different gaseous circumstances was studied. The post-irradiation damage and its modification by caffeine and t-BuOH was assessed in terms of 8-day-old seedling injury, peroxidase activity and total peroxides in the 8-day-old seedlings. Post-irradiation O2-saturated hydration caused maximal 8-day-old seedling injury, and increased peroxidase activity with concomitant reduction in total peroxides. Both caffeine and t-BuOH afforded significant radioprotection against post-irradiation O2-dependent damage. Post-irradiation N2O-saturated hydration was even more significantly radioprotective than the N2-saturated post-hydration. Under these circumstances, t-BuOH exerted no effect whatsoever on the N2- and N2O-mediated post-irradiation damage. Caffeine, on the other hand, significantly potentiated these two components of damage. A brief consideration of the physicochemical events which possibly account for the observed effects is presented.

Basic / Breeders Info

Nitrous Northern Lights is an automatic flowering ruderalis/indica variety from Fast & Furious and can be cultivated indoors and outdoors where the female, autoflowering plants need ±75 days from the seedling to the harvest. Fast & Furious’ Nitrous Northern Lights is a THC dominant variety and is/was only available as feminized seeds.

Fast & Furious’ Nitrous Northern Lights Description

Nitrous Northern Lights is a beautiful example of the merge of two legendary changes in cannabis history: A strain that set new standards in the 80’s crossed with the ‘new breed’ of autoflowering varieties that began to gain popularity around 2005. In fact, the first popular auto strain (Lowryder) is said to contain NL genetics, too.

Now, some years after the introduction of first generation autoflowering varieties, the next generation has arrived. Nitrous Northern Lights offers all the benefits that these improved strains offer, such as better yields and increased mold resistance. Watch her stylishly speed across that finish line to a pole position in harvest.

  • Ideal pH = 5.2–7.0
  • Spring growth can be a management concern; terminate early when preceding a grass crop
  • Triticale is a cross between wheat and rye. This makes for a crop with higher yields than wheat, but lower quality. Triticale is best suited for grazing pasture. Because of its large stems, hay wilting and silage packing can be difficult.

Fertilizer removal rates need to be considered as well. When utilizing cover crops as forage, it’s critical to consider the nutrients being removed along with the biomass. These fertilizer levels will need to be added to ensure maximum nutrient availability for the following cash crop.

Hay Production
Hay yields often average between 2-4 tons/acre. Moisture content should be between 15-20% moisture. Hay quality is more maturity-dependent at harvest than is silage.

The most efficient time to harvest small grain cereals for hay is at early-milk stage. This allows for the greatest compromise between forage yield and quality (quality would be greatest at the late-boot stage). To help speed up drying, a crimper is recommended when harvesting in the late-boot stage

Silage Production
Wheat, barley, oat and triticale silage yields are similar, 4-7 tons/acre of 35% dry matter forage in the boot stage and closer to 6-10 tons/acre when harvested in the late-boot stage. Small grains should be ensiled at between 62–68% moisture. Chop length should be set finer than when harvesting corn or forage sorghum. (Kansas State University)
