  • Improvement and Seed Production of Carrot ( 299 reads)   

    Root vegetables are the mainstay of a winter diet. The most commonly grown root crops in India are carrot (Daucus carota L.), radish (Raphanus sativus L.), turnip (Brassica rapa L.) and beet root (Beta vulgaris L.). 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
  • Hybrids Seed Production in Cole Crops ( 901 reads)   

    Cole crops are an important group of cool season vegetables. These are highly cross-pollinated crops and show preponderance of non-additive gene action for most of the economic traits. Hence, heterosis breeding has turned out to be of more relevance. The genetic phenomena of sporophytic self incompatibility and male sterility (particularly cytoplasmic male sterility) have proved instrumental in commercialization of hybrid seed production. - Category: Agriculture
