  • Scion-Stock Interactions in Fruit Crops ( 834 reads)   

    The relationship and interactions between two or more components of a graft age are quite variable and interesting. Some of these interactions have major horticultural value, whereas the others may not have any significance at all. These interactions are known to alter the size, growth, productivity, fruit quality and other attributes of different horticultural crops and thus are of commercial importance. The different interactions or the relationships have been developed in the following three different categories: i) Influence of rootstock on scion, ii) influence of scion cultivar on rootstock and iii) influence of inter-stock either on stock, scion or both. - Category: Agriculture
  • Graft Incompatibility in Fruit Crops [PDF] ( 129 reads)   

    A powerful root system, its wide and deep distribution in the soil and a persistent and adequate annual growth of absorbing roots are the principal pre-requisites of abundant fruit bearing. Nowadays the fruit plants are generally propagated on rootstocks rather than on their own roots because growing of fruit trees on rootstocks has many advantages. Fruit plants are generally propagated on the rootstocks employing budding and grafting techniques. Rootstock is inextricably linked with the success or failure of orcharding enterprise. Purposefully selected rootstocks enables the scion variety to express its genetic potential in terms of fruit quality and achieving real yield, modify architecture of plants, enhance nutrient and water use and impart resistance/tolerance to set of biotic and abiotic stresses. Although several rootstocks with known potential constitute the complex plant in modern orchard raising for tropical, subtropical, temperate and arid fruit crops, but the lesser known prospective rootstocks, are yet to be utilized to harness on their potential for increasing productivity and raising farm income. - Category: Agriculture
  • Method of Propagation in Fruit Crops [PDF] ( 137 reads)   

    Plant propagation can also refer to the artificial or natural dispersal of plants. Plant propagation is the process of creating new plants from a variety of sources: seeds, cuttings, bulbs and other plant parts. Basically all plants in this universe multiply themselves both by sexual (seeds) or asexual (vegetative) means. However man has now developed some more techniques for speedy and better multiplication of these plants. - Category: Agriculture

  • Horticultural Crops Nursery Establishemnt and Management ( 140 reads)   

    Nursery is a place, where seedling, sapling, trees, shrubs and other plant materials are grown and maintained until they are placed in a permanent place. In other words, nursery is a place where plants are grown, nurtured and sold out. Generally, growers require a good quality saplings or grafts of genuine type. Nursery is therefore a place where one can produce true-to-type plants by gaining technical skill, maintaining plants properly and by careful planning. - Category: Agriculture
  • Low Maintenance Roses for Aesthetic Value and Landscape Use ( 1501 reads)   

    Roses are one of the important plants that are used in landscaping and for aesthetic values. The concept of landscape roses is in vogue in the West and slowly it is gaining importance in developing countries. Generally, landscape roses are low maintenance roses which bloom continuously in the season, having pest and disease resistance and hardy with large clusters of colourful roses. - Category: Agriculture
  • Essential Oils from Flower Crops ( 3502 reads)   

    Essential oils are the subtle, aromatic and volatile liquids extracted from the flowers, seeds, leaves, stems, bark and roots of herbs, bushes, shrubs, and trees, through different extraction producers. - Category: Agriculture
  • Disease Management in Turfgrasses and Precautions ( 1073 reads)   

    Common diseases of turfgrasses include Leaf spot, Fairy Ring, Brown Patch and Dollar Spot. Control and precautions for fungicides usage. - Category: Agriculture
  • Gerbera Cultivation Under Controlled Environment ( 1717 reads)   

    Gerbera (Gerbera jamesonii) commonly known as Transwal Daisy or African Daisy is commercially important flowergrown throughout the world under wide range of climatic conditions. - Category: Agriculture
  • Turfgrasses - An Overview | Cool and Warm season Turfgrasses ( 1002 reads)   

    Turfgrasses are considered to be an integral part of landscape ecological systems which provide aesthetic value. These are narrow-leaved grass species that form a uniform, long-lived ground cover that can tolerate traffic and low mowing heights. - Category: Agriculture
  • Marigold Cultivation- A Viable Avenue for Farmer's Livelihood Security ( 7376 reads)   

    Marigold is one of the most important commercial flowers grown worldwide and in India it accounts for more than half of the nation's loose flower production. Its flowers are rich source of carotenoids and being grown on commercial scale for extracting these carotenoids. - Category: Agriculture
  • High Density Planting System in Fruit Crops ( 10328 reads)   

    High density planting is defined as planting at a density in excess of that which gives maximum crop yield at maturity if the individual tree grows to its full natural size. HDP system is normally understood as a system in which a higher number of plants are accommodated within a unit area in comparison to the conventional planting density. - Category: Agriculture
  • Propagation of Fruit Trees ( 3874 reads)   

    Plant propagation is the process of creating new plants from a variety of sources i.e. seeds, cuttings, bulbs and other plant parts. Plant propagation can also refer to the artificial or natural dispersal of plants. - Category: Agriculture
  • Canopy Management of Fruit Crops ( 4618 reads)   

    Over the years, the strategies of fruit trees canopy management were developed for improving tree health, productivity, fruit quality and management efficiency of orchards in India as well as throughout the world. The strategy is to create, after planting, strong, balanced tree frameworks, and to maintain it throughout the orchards life. - Category: Agriculture
  • Fertigation in Fruit Crops ( 2231 reads)   

    Fertigation is a term specially coined to describe the supply of dissolved mineral fertilisers to tree roots via irrigation water, generally as continual or very frequent doses throughout the growing season. In this system fertilizer solution is distributed evenly in irrigation. The availability of nutrients is very high therefore the efficiency is more. - Category: Agriculture
  • Host - Virus Interactions ( 2661 reads)   

    The co-existence of viruses with their hosts can be viewed as a molecular arms race between the virus and host elimination mechanisms. Virus infections are the cause of numerous plant disease syndromes that are generally characterized by the induction of disease symptoms such as developmental abnormalities, chlorosis, and necrosis. Recent studies indicate that symptoms are derived from specific interactions between virus and host components. Although resistance to and recovery from viral infections will depend on the interactions that occur between virus and host. - Category: Agriculture
  • Integrated Plasticulture Technologies for Profitable Horticulture ( 2512 reads)   

    The term plasticulture is defined as the use of plastics in agriculture. This broad term would include plastic film mulches, drip irrigation tape, row covers, low tunnels, high tunnels, silage bags, hay bale wraps, and plastic trays and pots used in transplant and bedding plant production. Use of plastic in horticulture crop production has increased dramatically in the last ten years. - Category: Agriculture
