  • Physiological Disorders in Fruit Crops [PDF]    By: Pravin L. Deshmukh

    The productivity as well as the quality of fruit crops is affected to a greater extent due to the physiological disorders. Therefore, it is necessary to know the causes and symptoms properly to manage these disorders for increased quality production. Disturbance in the plant metabolic activities resulting from an excess or deficit of environmental variables like atmospheric temperature, light, aeration, atmospheric humidity and soil health result in crop disorders. Physiological disorders have become widespread and can control by using of tolerant, resistant varieties, growth regulators, cultural operation, systematic irrigation and adoption of high density planting. The incidence and severity of these physiological disorders vary with locality, season, cultivar and orchard management practices. >> Category: Agriculture
  • Mutation Breeding and its Application in Vegetable Crop Improvement    By: Pallavi Neha

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]    By: Dr. Amit Goswami

    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
