Alam Md. Izhar, Das Ajay Kumar, Prasad Birendra Response of Nitrogen and PGRs on Cape-goosebery

Sixteen plant food nutrients are essential for proper crop development. Each is equally important to the plant, yet each is required in vastly different amounts. Primary (macro) nutrients are nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. They are the most frequently required so plants use large amounts for their growth and survival. As agriculture becomes more mechanized and science increases the possibilities for using inputs to enhance production, the role of PGRs becomes more vital. Plant growth regulators (PGRs) have been an important component in agricultural production even prior to the identification of plant hormones. PGRs are now used on worldwide on a diversity of crops each year. Most of these applications are confined to high-value horticultural commodities rather than field crops. This book includes informative visuals, such as tables of physical and physico - chemical parameters of Cape gooseberry, Nitrogen & PGRs and its effects on fruit crop. This book also helps those people, students, teachers and researcher who work on essential nutrient and plant growth regulators in Agriculture and Horticulture.

Ragunath Gnanasekaran Impact of Climate Change on Major Crops in Tamil Nadu

Climate change is a significant and lasting change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns over periods ranging from decades to millions of years. There are a number of reasons for global climate change, examples of which include the increased intensity of solar energy or the cyclicality of Earth's temperatures, volcanism, oceanic circulation cycles, biosphere impact, ultraviolet radiation variability, reflectivity, rotational variation, solar systemic changes, galaxy positional variability, albedo, human influence and so on. The present research analyse on the impact of climate change on major crops in Tamil Nadu. It is observed from the study more that there is no impact of climate change on major crops. The major crops present a very little change in the productivity due to change in climate. Their co-efficient of variations are more or less uniform except for cotton the variation in cotton is observed in the latter half of the period of study. Its rise in productivity may due to the adoption of new technology in cultivation and the use of modern implements in agriculture. Thus climate change has no direct impact of major crops.

Vivekanandhini A., Jagannathan R., Previna S. Sources sink relationship in hybrid maize (Zeamays L.)

Maize is one of the most important cereal crops in the World's agricultural economy both as food for humans and feed for animals and poultry. Maize is known as "Queen of Cereals" due to its higher yield potential compared to other cereals. In India it is the third most important food crop after rice and wheat. The demand for maize is increasing day by day in India, owing to the increased demand for poultry and cattle feed and for the same reason it is also emerging as an important cereal crop in India. In crop plants, the physiological basis of dry matter production is dependent on the source-sink concept, where the source is the potential capacity for photosynthesis and the sink is the potential capacity to utilize the photosynthetic products. Hence, for improving attainable crop yields the knowledge of yield forming physiological processes such as source-sink relationships is required. Many studies have been conducted on source-sink relationship in different crops including maize to understand this phenomenon towards maneuvering such crops. Since, maize being the sink limiting crop, it is important to study the source-sink relationship to improve the sink capacity and maize yield

Essay from the year 2013 in the subject Economics - Case Scenarios, grade: "none", , course: PhD, language: English, abstract: Abstract: To reduce inequality in income distribution and reduce the poverty social welfare spending in Thailand particularly on education and health services is regarded as one of the effective instruments. Policy makers agree that public subsidies on education and health produce positive externalities and have spill over effect in the society. This research is designed to analyse the effects of public spending of education and health on income distribution which examine the pre-expenditure and post-expenditure income distribution in Thailand. It follows the benefit incidence analysis (BIA) that is a method of computing the distribution of public expenditure across different demographic groups, such as women and men. The procedure involves allocating per unit public subsidies (for example, expenditure per student for the education sector) according to individual utilization rates of public services. This paper aims at examine who are the real beneficiaries from the government expenditure. The study uses the quantitative method where data are used of 2010. From the benefit incidence analysis on the public expenditure on education it seems that education system is pro-poor and health care system are not pro-poor rather pro-rich. The poor people can be benefited more from the primary and secondary education and less benefited from the tertiary e...

Crop protection continues to be an important component of modern farming to maintain food production to feed an expanding human population, but considerable changes have occurred in the regulation of pesticides in Europe in the last decade. The aim has been to reduce their impact on people and the environment. This has resulted in a major reduction in the number of chemicals approved for application on crops. In other parts of the world, a continuing expansion in the growing of genetically modified crops has also changed the pattern of pesticide use. In this second edition, Graham Matthews, updates how pesticides are registered and applied and the techniques used to mitigate their effects in the environment. Information on operator safety, protection of workers in crops treated with pesticides and spray drift affecting those who live in farming areas is also discussed.

Healthy seeds and propagules are the basic requirement for producing good grains, fruits and vegetables needed for human survival and perpetuation. Dispersal of microbial plant pathogens via seeds and propagules has assumed more importance than other modes of dispersal, as infected seeds and propagules have the potential to become the primary sources of carrying pathogen inoculum for subsequent crops. Several diseases transmitted through seeds and propagules have been shown to have the potential to damage economies as a result of huge quantitative and qualitative losses in numerous crops. Hence, it is essential to rapidly detect, identify and differentiate the microbial plant pathogens present in seeds and propagules precisely and reliably, using sensitive techniques. Microbial Plant Pathogens: Detection and Management in Seeds and Propagules provides a comprehensive resource on seed-borne and propagule-borne pathogens. Information on the biology of microbial pathogens, including genetic diversity, infection process and survival mechanisms of pathogens and epidemiology of diseases caused by them, are discussed critically and in detail to highlight weak links in the life cycles of the pathogens. Development of effective disease management systems, based on the principles of exclusion and eradication of pathogens and immunization of crop plants to enhance the levels of resistance of cultivars to diseases, has been effective to keep the pathogens at bay. The need for production of disease-free seeds/propagules has been emphasized to prevent the carryover of the inoculum to the next crop or introduction of the pathogens to other locations. Effectiveness of adopting simple cultural practices and development of cultivars resistant to diseases through traditional breeding methods or biotechnological approach have resulted in reducing the pathogen inoculum and disease incidence. Although application of different chemicals may reduce the disease incidence effectively, biological management of crop diseases, employing potential biological control agents have to be preferred to preserve the agroecosystems. Greater efforts have to be made to integrate compatible strategies to enhance the effectiveness of diseases management systems. Protocols appended at the end of relevant chapters form a unique feature of this book to enable the researchers to fine-tune their projects. This 2 volume set provides comprehensive and updated information about the economically-important groups of microbial plant pathogens carried by seed and propagules. Graduate students, researchers and teachers of plant pathology, plant protection, microbiology, plant breeding and genetics, agriculture and horticulture, as well as certification and quarantine personnel will find the information presented in this book useful.

Usman Monday Tillage Practices and Fertilizer Rates in Maize-Soybean Intercrop

A two year experiment was conducted at the Teaching & Research Farm, University of Agriculture, Makurdi to determine the effect of tillage practices & fertilizer rates on Maize-Soybean Intercrop. The experimental design consisted of three factors: cropping system at two levels (sole and intercrops), tillage practices at two levels (zero tillage and ridges) and fertilizer rates at three levels (0, 150 and 300 kg/ha of NPK 20:10:10). The treatments were laid out in a Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) in a split-split plot arrangement and replicated three times. The cropping systems were assigned to the main plots, tillage practices to sub-plots and the fertilizer rates were in the sub-sub plots. Results showed that Intercropping reduced the yields of both crops compared with their sole crops. There were higher yields from crops cultivated on ridges as a result of improved access to soil moisture than no-tillage. Applying fertilizer significantly (P<0.05) increased the yield of the component crops than when no fertilizer was applied. Intercropping resulted in yield advantage. Land Equivalent Ratio (LER) was (1.53) in 2013 and (1.35) in 2014 showing 35 % and 26 % land saved.

Antony Raju V. NGO Field Workers-Important Enablers; But, are they enabled.

In the past few decades, the work of NGOs has become extremely important and crucial for the development sector in India. The work carried out by the NGO field workers has been immense. Hence, they are a very important force to be acknowledged and developed. But on the contrary, literature review reveal that they are undervalued and they themselves face various social and other problems. The present research study conducted among 100 NGO field workers in Bangalore, explored the social problems faced by the NGO field workers and the coping styles adopted by them. Results revealed that the NGO field workers faced problems mostly in the areas of finances, housing conditions, fatigue, poor social contacts and problems with relatives/spouses and coping with children. Women workers faced dissatisfaction with work-life balance, faced role conflict and gender discrimination at work place. However, the NGO field workers are in general coping well with their situation, though they are facing severe stresses and strains.

Ghorai Amitava The electrical hazards on the germination of seeds

This book compiles three dissertations on experimental projects based on pollution hazards due to electric field on the germination of seeds. The sprout length of gram and pea seeds during the time of germination of some seeds in open-air condition decreases with increase in electric field and voltage. Corresponding graphs show non-linear variations. The cut-off or threshold voltage at which germination stops, is also determined by extrapolation and the corresponding electric field is computed. Thus electric field has negative effect on the germination of seeds. This may have an impact in agriculture sector, specifically, in the process of preservation of seeds in cold storages.

Vikram H. C., Hegde N. K. Varietal evaluation and intercropping studies in cashew

Cashew (Anacardium occidentale L.) belonging to the family anacardiaceae is one of the important dollar earning plantation crops of the country.Despite its importance in the economy of the country and its cultivation on extensive scale, the productivity of cashew is extremely low. Therefore identification of varieties for different aggro climatic conditions is of vital importance in increasing the production of cashew nut in the country. To meet the demand of better planting materials for large scale plantations, it is necessary to evaluate the yield potential of cashew varieties under different aggro climatic conditions. To satisfy the farmers as well as processors, it is necessary to evaluate and identify the cashew varieties with higher yield along with desirable processing characteristics.In Belgaum district cashew is popularly cultivated in Khanapur taluk and part of Bailahongal and Belgaum talukas. Information on the performance of newly released varieties under northern transition zone is not available. There is a need to identify suitable spice crops as inter-crops under cashew based cropping systems under northern transition zone of Karnataka.

Two major challenges to continued global food security are the ever increasing demand for food products, and the unprecedented abiotic stresses that crops face due to climate change.Wild relatives of domesticated crops serve as a reservoir of genetic material, with the potential to be used to develop new, improved varieties of crops. Crop Wild Relative and Climate Change integrates crop evolution, breeding technologies and biotechnologies, improved practices and sustainable approaches while exploring the role wild relatives could play in increasing agricultural output. Crop Wild Relative and Climate Change begins with overviews of the impacts of climate change on growing environments and the challenges that agricultural production face in coming years and decades. Chapters then explore crop evolution and the potential for crop wild relatives to contribute novel genetic resources to the breeding of more resilient and productive crops. Breeding technologies and biotechnological advances that are being used to incorporate key genetic traits of wild relatives into crop varieties are also covered. There is also a valuable discussion on the importance of conserving genetic resources to ensure continued successful crop production. A timely resource, Crop Wild Relative and Climate Change will be an invaluable resource for the crop science community for years to come.

Agriculture under Climate Change. Threats, Strategies and Policies

Agriculture continues to be an important sector fuelling economic growth. Rapidly changing climate is already affecting the production of food and feed, industrial crops, livestock, and seafood. In developing countries like India, agriculture and allied sectors contribute significantly to the gross domestic product. Therefore, evolving strategies to sustain a stable growth of the farming sector is essential for feeding a growing population and poverty alleviation in the face of global climate change. It is crucial to carry out a comprehensive analysis of different aspects of climate change to effectively combat its negative impacts on food production systems and landscapes and reap its potential benefits in agricultural production. Research findings and recommendations on topics as diverse as climate change impacts, genetic enhancement of crops, options for adaptation to climate change, opportunities and challenges for sustainable food production systems have been compiled in this volume. Capacity building for climate resilient agriculture and agriculture policy and planning is equally important to face future challenges. This book makes a compelling effort to address these major issues arising from climate change from an Indian perspective. The important and often conflicting issues in climate change impacts, adaptations and mitigations strategies are brought in to focus and a critical summary of the state-of-art in climate smart agriculture is presented for teachers, resear...
