Common bean plants supplied with high calcium concentrations in the nutrient solution showed an increase in the dry mass of the shoot and roots and higher calcium accumulation in the shoot and roots (Souza Junior, Nascimento, & Martinez, 1998; Silva, Moraes, & Souza, 2011).
However, common bean plants grown with different calcium concentrations in the nutrient solution over a period of 45 days showed a quadratic response for the dry mass of the shoot (Silva et al.
2014) for the number of pods and grains per plant, the number of grains per pod and the grain yield of common bean plants grown with a calcium concentration of 3.
In the physiological maturation of the common bean plants, 2 months after sowing, the bean pods and grains were collected and dried in a forced-air oven at 60[degrees]C, until a steady mass was reached, to determine the pods and grain number and dry mass.
In all three experiments there was a significant effect of the different types of biochar on the growth and development of common bean plants.
Diabrotica speciosa adults were collected from common bean plants cultivated in an experimental field of the College of Agricultural and Veterinary Sciences (Faculdade de Ciencias Agrarias e Veterinarias --FCAV), University of Sao Paulo State (Universidade Estadual Paulista --UNESP), located in the municipality of Jaboticabal, state of Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Upon emergence, the adults were placed into glass cages (30 cm width x 40 cm length x 30 cm height) and fed with young common bean plants ('Perola').
2012) noted that PvTFL1y (a gene associated with determinacy) originated in both Andean and Mesoamerican gene pools when studying the multiple origins of the determinate growth habit in common bean plants.
The salt effect of N fertilization at planting has been frequently reported in the literature to result in decreases in germination, emergence, and dry matter accumulation in common bean plants (Kikuti et al.
