Due to their short duration and high productivity, root crops fit well in sequential, inter and relay cropping which enable maximum use of enable land. Root crops are generally storage organs enlarge to store energy in the form of carbohydrates. Root vegetable like carrots are highly efficient in producing the highest amount of nutrients and health promoting substances per unit area. Carrot is a rich source of high carotene content which is reported to be anti carcinogenic in nature. >> Category: Agriculture

  • No Photo Bacterial Plasmid DNA and Conjugation Gene Transfer    By: Ashwini Kumar

    A plasmid is a molecule of DNA, independent of the bacterial nucleoid chromosome, which often has "bonus DNA" with instructions for weapons of infection. Both the bacterial nucleoid and bacterial plasmids are circular molecules of DNA - genetic information. Plasmids are, however, much smaller than the bacterial chromosome, usually only containing a few genes. Unlike the bacterial chromosome, plasmid traits are not normally required for the cell to function, but do help a bacterium survive and cause disease. Not all bacteria have plasmids, but those that do can share these advantageous molecules with other bacteria in a process called conjugation. >> Category: Biotech Research
  • No Photo Diagnosis of Nutritional Disorders in Fruit Crops    By: Pravin L. Deshmukh

    In fruit crops, the deficiency of micronutrients causes many more disorders than that of macronutrients. Nutritional disorders have become widespread with diminishing use of organic manures, adoption of high density planting, use of root stocks for dwarfing, disease and salt tolerance, unbalanced NPK fertiliser application and extension of horticulture to marginal lands. To get high quality fruit and yields, micronutrient deficiencies have to be detected before visual symptoms are expressed >> Category: Agriculture
