Using a wide zigzag stitch, stitch down the feather-strip length, making sure the zigzag stitch extends over both sides of the cut rachis.
The analyzed data showed positive genotypic correlation with reference to the number of leaflets-NLL (0.1278), petiole width-PW (0.1091), petiole depth-PD (0.0867), rachis length-RL (0.2012), leaflet length-LLL (0.0253), leaflet width-LLW (0.0596), leaf area-LA (0.0845), leaf dry weight-LDW (0.1467), total leaf dry weight-TLDW (0.2766), specific leaf weight-SLW (0.0548) and vegetative dry matter-VDM (0.1107) (Table.2; Fig.1).
Stem browning was determined using a subjective scale (0-4), where 0 is no rachis darkening; 1 represents the onset of darkening of the pedicel region (to 50% complete) or the rachis apex; 2 indicates darkening of the pedicel region, from the apex up to 10% of the principal axis of the rachis; 3 represents a total darkening of the pedicel region and the apex, and 50% of the principal axis of the rachis; and 4 denotes the darkening of the pedicel, the apex, and more than 50% of the main axis (Pinto et al., 2015).
Black pycnidia producing black cirrhi (a mucus-bound ribbon-like mass of spores that exudes from a fungus) were observed on symptomatic leaf, petiole, pedicel and rachis tissue after 24 to 168 hours of incubation.
Many researchers have focused on the exploration of new cost-effective methods of CNFs production and their applications using various agricultural crops and residues or nonwood sources, such as wheat straw and soy hulls [17], sugar beet pulp [18], potato pulp [19], swede root [20], bagasse [21], sisal [22], algae [23], stems of cacti [24], banana rachis [25], and Posidonia oceanica [6, 8].

Thus, I measured and recorded bilateral traits for pairs of leaflets residing opposite one another across the central rachis, its plane of symmetry (Velickovic, 2008).
