We present new oscillation criteria for the second order nonlinear neutral delay differential equation [y(t)-py(t-τ)]''+ q(t)yλ(g(t)) sgn y(g(t)) = 0, t ≧ t0. Our results solve an open problem posed by James S.W . Wong . The relevance of our results becomes clear due to a carefully

This study aimed to reveal changes in morphological and physiological characters during growth and mature stages of rice plants in response to salinity stress and growth promoters. Salinity stress caused a decrease in vegetative growth, yield and yield components, while growth substances enhanced the leaf area and crop yield of rice plants under salinity stress. It could be concluded that growth promoters can partially alleviate the harmful effect of salinity stress on rice.
