  • Significance of Hydroponic Technique for Crops ( 181 reads)   

    Hydroponics is a technology for growing plants in nutrient solutions (water and fertilizers) with or without the use of an artificial medium (e.g., sand, gravel, vermiculite, rock-wool, peat moss, coir, sawdust) to provide mechanical support. Hydroponic is a soilless technique, which provides nutrient and water to plant with equal and higher yield compare to soil. - Category: Agriculture
  • Role of Eco-Friendly Fertilizers to Enhance the Crop Productivity ( 171 reads)   

    The demand for eco-friendly fertilizers is steadily increasing both in the developed and developing countries. Eco-friendly fertilizers are environmental friendly fertilizers unlike inorganic fertilizers. They are low in cost and can be prepared easily with the available raw materials. Their use can ensure better soil quality on long term. Also, continuous use can help in sustaining the crop yields. Therefore many farmers have started using eco-friendly fertilizers along with inorganic fertilizers as they were able to earn more profits. - Category: Agriculture
  • Importance of Vermicompost ( 645 reads)   

    Vermicompost are defined as organic matter of plant and/or animal origin consisting mainly of finely-divided earthworm castings, produced non thermophilically with bio-oxidation and stabilization of the organic material, due to interactions between aerobic microorganism and earthworms, as the materials pass through the earthworm gut. Worm or vermiculture is a useful technique for recycling kitchen and livestock wastes into a rich organic fertilizer, for producing high-protein feed for poultry and initiating a lucrative business selling worms and worm castings for the small farm. Worms are invaluable partners in building the soil in your garden, be it a kitchen or garden or a large field. - Category: Agriculture
  • Molecular Markers: A Tool for Improvement in Crops ( 143 reads)   

    Markers can be defined as heritable entities associated with the economically important trait under the control of polygenes. Markers are any trait of an organism that can be identified with confidence and relative easy, and can be followed in a mapping population. There are two types of genetic markers viz. morphological markers or naked eye polymorphism and non-morphological markers or molecular markers. - Category: Agriculture
  • Industrial Uses of Guar Gum Plant ( 177 reads)   

    The Guar plant is an annual plant, extremely drought resistant and thrives in semiarid regions where most plants perish. The Guar plant grows best in sandy soils and areas of West, Northwest India and parts of Pakistan - Category: Applications
  • Sustainable Conservation Practices for Natural Resources [PDF] ( 359 reads)   

    Land and water are the most precious natural resources, the importance of which in human civilization needs no elaboration - Category: Environmental Biotechnology
  • RNA Interference: New Approach of Gene Silencing in Crops ( 158 reads)   

    RNA silencing is a novel gene regulatory mechanism that limits the transcript level by either suppressing transcription (TGS) or by activating a sequence- Specific RNA degradation process [PTGS/RNA interference (RNAi)] - Category: Agriculture
  • Natural Biopesticide of Insect pest 'Nuclear Polyhedrosis Virus' ( 220 reads)   

    Microbial pesticides occupy around 1.3 per cent of the world's total pesticide market. Biopesticides mean the use of fungi, bacteria, viruses, protozoa and nematodes through inundative or inoculative release for the biological control of insect pest, diseases, weeds and nematodes in agriculture, medicinal, veterinary, forestry and horticultural eco-systems. - Category: Agriculture
  • Osmotic Dehydration method: A Novel Process of Fruit Preservation ( 205 reads)   

    Osmotic dehydration is a useful technique for the production of sensorial, safe, stable, nutritious, tasty, economical, and concentrated food obtained by placing the solid food, whole or in sliced in sugar or salt aqueous solutions of high osmotic pressure. Osmotic dehydration has become more popular in food processing industry. Fruits are important sources of vitamin and minerals. They are got rotten before the final consumption due to lack of preservation and storage facilities. Osmotic dehydration is an operation used for the partial removal of water from plant tissues by immersion in an osmotic solution. - Category: Applications
  • Seed Hardening for Drought Tolerance Crop Seed [PDF] ( 156 reads)   

    Quality seeds play a major role, along with improved package of practices leading to enhanced productivity. Safe guarding seeds during initial stage of germination will give a special impetus for the seed to overcome the moisture stress condition and develop into a vigorous plant. In dryland agriculture, drought resistance of plant is one of the very important factor to get the higher yield. Though this is largely depends on genetic makeup of the variety, pre-sowing treatments like 'hardening' also practiced to defy the ill effects of drought on emergence and growth of crop. - Category: Agriculture
