Effect of Sulphur Fertilization on Growth, Yield and Quality of Sesame (Sesamum indicum L.) in Mid Central Zone of Odisha
As a result of the health benefits associated with pomegranates, the German consumption of pomegranates is increasing. An interesting opportunity for pomegranate exporters lies in exports of ready-to-eat pomegranate arils. Producers in the Southern Hemisphere have the potential to offer pomegranates in the offseason of the Northern Hemisphere, where most pomegranates are produced.
Biological Management of Damping-Off, Buckeye Rot and Fusarial Wilt of Tomato (cv. Solan Lalima) under Mid-Hill Conditions of Himachal Pradesh
Efficacy of Different Acaricides Against Acid Lime Mite Schizotetranychus baltazari Rimando, Predatory Mite and Grading of Fruits
Effect of Mulching Materials on Growth and Yield Attributes and Enhancing Farm Income Through Ginger Cultivation Under Rainfed Rice Based Production System
Trials were conducted for two consecutive years during 2001-03 in farmers’ field in the Kymore plateau region (Jabalpur) of Madhya Pradesh to evaluate five treatments consisting of mulching with paddy straw, palas leaves, dry grass, polyethylene sheet and control (without mulch) in randomized block design with five replications. The findings revealed that use of mulching material in ginger enhanced growth and yield attributes as well as rhizome yield along with higher economics as compared to no mulch.
Extending Harvest Duration in Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L.) with a Combination of Varieties, Row Spacings and Planting Systems
A field experiment with 4 row spacings (60, 80, 100 and 120 cm) and 3 planting (Sole Krish, Sole Shivalika and Mixed) systems on tomato cv. Krish (Indeterminate) and Shivalika (Determinate) were laid out in Randomized Block Design (Factorial) with three replications. The results revealed that the 60 cm spacing and (50 % Krish + 50 % Shivalika) planting system in individual and interaction responded better with respect to fruit yield per unit area, harvest duration and economic returns due to greater crop biomass productions.
Combined Efficacy of Biofertilizer with Different Biopesticides on Aphid’s Infestation (Acyrnthosiphon pisum) and the Productivity of Pea Crop (Pisum sativum)
Phytotoxic effects of aqueous extracts of walnut leaf were studied on germinating seeds and early seedling growth of mustard (Brassica campestris cv. Karanti) under western Himalayan agri-silvi system. Five treatments comprised of distilled water (control), 40, 60, 80 and 100% concentration of leaf extracts were treated. The effect of aqueous extracts was found inhibitive with concentration dependent manner on seed germination and subsequent seedling growth. The variety exhibited extent of phytotoxicity at 100% extracts application in comparison to untreated control.
