  • No Photo Role of Mulching in Vegetable Cultivation    By: Dr. Swati Saha

    Mulching in general is a beneficial practice for crop production. Mulch is simply a protective layer of a material that is spread on top of the soil. It enriches and protects soil and provides a better growing environment. At the same time it acts as barriers to movement of moisture out of the soil. Mulches support infiltration of runoff and irrigation water as the mulches protect the soil surface from the impact of raindrops preventing soil crusting. >> Category: Agriculture

  • No Photo Significance of Bacterial Volatile Organic Compounds in Agriculture    By: Deepak Panpatte

    All the living organisms including plants, animals, humans and microorganisms are possess plenty of natural chemicals that enables them to thrive in nature. These chemicals includes various enzymes, hormones, proteins and volatile compounds which plays important roles in various vital processes of the organisms including metabolism, nutrition, establishment and maintenance of the organisms in their specific geographical area. Volatile compounds can be defined as the chemicals with high vapour pressure enter the atmosphere. Volatile Organic Compounds can travel far from the point of production through the atmosphere, porous soils and liquid. Microbial VOC are actively involved in various life sustaining events such as antagonism, mutualism, intra and interspecies regulation of cellular and developmental processes, and modification of their surrounding environments. From agricultural point of view such compounds are playing important role for biostimulation of plant and provides resistance to various biotic and abiotic stresses. >> Category: Agriculture

    In commercial dairy farming fodder and feed for the cattle is an expensive proposition and maintaining green fodder availability round the year is a challenge. In the era of commercial dairy farming it is desirable that surplus green herbage are to be preserved /conserved with minimum loss of nutrients for supply during lean periods when availability of organic fresh forage is meager or negligible (mid October-mid December and mid April-June). Silage is an option for such situation, have some advantages and limitation. These are enlisted in this article. >> Category: Agriculture

Article: Career as a Marine Microbiologist - Comment by: Rohit Khatokar - 2016-06-12

I got selected in the Goa University entrance exam for MSc Marine Microbiology. And I am looking forward to take admission, I have always wanted a job in science that is not limited to just the lab. I Microbiology in general is very confusing because it has a lot to offer and we often can not decide what is better. I hope I have made a right decision.

Article: Career as a Marine Microbiologist - Comment by: jim - 2016-06-01


Great article.

This was my dream back in 2000.

To combine my love of the underwater as well as microbiology. I never thought it would be possible.

Anyhow, I actually became a certified open water diver but sadly I left the marine environment and focused on food safety.

But now, I'm tracing ny roots.

Hope its not too late
