Abstract

[automatically translated] Numerous Brassicaceae, including B. napus and B. carinata, are now the focus of attention as potential industrial oil sources for biodiesel production. By Sicilian interiors, several experiments have highlighted the wide adaptability of these species to the climatic conditions prevailing; in the autumn planting, they may allow good production levels by taking advantage of natural water supplies, occupying the place under a system of autumn-winter cereals and allowing it to stop cereal monoculture. Numerous reference books, however, place their oil in the Brassicaceae "from renewal crop group", particularly in light of the large amount of crop residues that they leave in the soil at the end of cycle. It is a verification of the effect exerted by the adoption of different cultural precession Productivity B.carinata (var was therefore considered interesting to start the experimental farm "Sparacia" (DAAT - University of Palermo). Serena). The Stinkweed was sown on the continuous 4/12/2007 file, distributing the seeds in land previously subject to different conductions (N - land not cultivated; FFG - wheat; TSOV - the Alexandrian clover green manure (var. Lilibeo); T1 - Egyptian clover mowed; T2 - Alexandrian clover for the seed production). The data obtained (grain yield, t ha-1; straw production, t ha-1; harvest index,%) were placed in comparison with those derived from parcels sown to durum wheat (var. Ciccio) with the same precession cultivation, subjecting both sets of data for statistical analysis to identify any systematic variations. Statistical analysis revealed a certain reactivity of B. carinata at different precession, reactivity, however, has affected the production of straw (significantly higher than in the parcels sown to clover green manure), while substantially unchanged was the production of grain. No significant change was found in durum wheat instead. Despite the limitations of the test, the results offer interesting ideas for the continuation of trial. reactivity which nevertheless affected the straw production (significantly higher than in the parcels sown to clover green manure), while substantially unchanged was the production of grain.
