  • Patent number: 6118046
    Abstract: An inbred broccoli line, designated KI-13, including to the seeds to the plants, the method of development of inbred broccoli line KI-13, and the methods for producing a broccoli plant produced by crossing the inbred line KI-13 with itself or other broccoli lines. The genetic makeup of KI-13 enables either self-incompatibility or male sterility used for pollination control to effect hybridization. The hybrid broccoli seeds and plants can also be produced by crossing the inbred line KI-13 with another broccoli line.

  • Patent number: 6063392
    Abstract: A method of applying a layer-form active ingredient depot with delayed release of active ingredients to plants or plant parts, having at least one pressure-sensitively adhering matrix layer (A) which comprises active ingredient and is in two-dimensional contact with the plant surface, and one back layer (B) which is essentially free from and impermeable to active ingredient and is on the side remote from the plant is characterized in that the layer (A) is produced by painting in the desired two-dimensional pattern at the site of application on the plant from a spreadable, pressure-sensitively adhering, polymer-based composition which comprises active ingredient and then on the said layer (A) the layer (B) is produced by painting or spraying.
