  • GLOBAL WARMING: CAUSES AND IMPACT ON AGRICULTURE

    The continue temperature has been risen on the earth. It is very upset in this planet. It is the main effect of global warming. Global warming starts when sun light reaches on the earth. The clouds and some particles absorb the sun light and some lights reflect to the atmosphere, approximate 30% sunlight back to atmosphere. But remaining sun light absorbed by earth and by the some particles. Due to increasing global warming, life making becomes inconvenient. As the Earth warms up, this solar energy is radiated by thermal radiation and infrared rays, propagating directly out to space thereby cooling the Earth. Some outgoing radiation reabsorbed by cloud, atmosphere, carbon di oxide, methane and other gaseous that is present in atmosphere. These gaseous also known as greenhouses gaseous due to the heat trapping capacity.

  • Biotechnological Intervention in Fruit Crop Breeding

    “Biotechnology is the manipulation of living organism at a cellular or sub cellular level efficiently for the human welfare”. The plant biotechnology has role in creating the variability among the crop species which can be beneficial for the crop improvement. Biotechnology gives the significance advantages over the conventional breeding methods in terms of reduction in breeding cycle, helps in marker assisted selection for specific traits and development of transgenic cultivars. In fruit crop improvement different biotechnological techniques are used like somatic variation, haploid plant production, Somatic hybridization, In vitro embryo rescue, Marker assisted selection, Genetic transformation and Gene editing etc.

  • Agriculture need participation of women

    Agriculture is backbone of India. India is agriculture country which is depending on agriculture from10 thousand years. Now days the agriculture production in India is such as fruit production, livestock fishery, poultry, field crops, plantation crop etc. rural population in India is mainly depended on agriculture. India is only one agricultural country having more diversified land for cultivation. When we are talking about agriculture, one thing is necessary to say that agriculture production can be enhanced appropriate management of land. Several farmers are continuing appropriate management of the land for cultivation, growing to cereals as well as vegetables and other necessary things for survival. We need to grow food for human beings. In which we need to include rural and remote sensing areas workers for help to farmers in farming. There are many conscious partiality in agriculture that is participation of male increasing day per day but women not. So kept in mind that to enhance agriculture product as well as efficiency, need women. Men and women participation should be equal in agriculture in which the gender partiality will be eliminated. Agriculture increase the source of income in rural areas and as well as remote sensing areas and also cover the cost of technology which is focus for women labor to work in agriculture, thereby augmenting women already high labor burden and also play indispensible role to earn through mechanization.

  • Fungal secondary metabolites: The potential eco-safe pesticides for plant protection

    Synthetic chemicals are in use as pesticides for many years to increase the yield of crops. However, this approach has its limitations due to its negative impacts on human health and the environment. Fungi based products are considered an alternative to synthetic chemical pesticides. Several fungi are among the most studied and applied bio-control agents in industry and agriculture. They are known to secrete several secondary metabolites with different biological activities. Fungal secondary metabolites are low molecular weight bioactive compounds with a variety of functions. Hence, studies on the fungal secondary metabolites have an important role in improving the quality of the crops by minimizing qualitative and quantitative damage caused by several biotic stresses. Concisely, the integration of secondary metabolites in pest management strategy is an eco-friendly, cost-effective, sustainable and farmer-friendly solution to manage pests and fits well in integrated modules.

  • Potato Diseases and Their Management

    Potato (Solanum tuberosum) is the most important food crop of the world. Potato is a temperate crop grown under subtropical conditions in India. The potato is a crop which has always been the ‘poor man’s friend’. Potato is being cultivated in the country for the last more than 300 years. For vegetable purposes it has become one of the most popular crops in this country. Potatoes are an economical food; they provide a source of low cost energy to the human diet. Potatoes are a rich source of starch, vitamins especially C and B1 and minerals.

  • Genetic diversity of Minor fruits found in North East India

    North East India, the centre of origin for many wild and cultivated fruit tree species, most of which are not commercially cultivated but provides significant source of livelihood support for many rural communities. Due to unsustainable market pressures and rapid urbanization, majority of these species have come to near extinction. A holistic approach is hence proposed which includes both in-situ and ex-situ conservation strategies, as well as re-governance of the market chain. Reinforcement of their domestication through standardization of cultivation practices, facilitation for supply of planting material and increasing the demands for the produce by exploring their uses, creation of awareness among consumers and establishing a good distribution network are also crucial for attaining sustainability.

  • Genetic resources of tropical underutilized fruits in India

    Southeast Asia is a centre of diversity of a number of tropical fruits, Indian sub continent comprising vast semi-arid and arid areas have enormous diversity of underutilized fruit species. A number of multipurpose tree species commonly grow as populations unattended in these inhospitable and stressed environments and also in the agricultural fields as isolated trees or in small groups. In most of the species no organized orcharding, nutritional management and plant protection practices are followed. These species have outstanding adaptation capabilities to drought tolerance, salt tolerance and are also resistant to major pest and diseases. Continued overexploitation of these species from natural habitats, increasing demand for land for agriculture and industry and least attention for this natural wealth has resulted in extensive degradation of their habitats.
