[1] Structure and function of the spleen The spleen combines the innate and adaptive immune system in a uniquely organized way. The structure of the spleen enables it to remove older erythrocytes from the circulation and leads to the efficient removal of blood-borne microorganisms and cellular debris. This function, in combination with a highly organized lymphoid compartment, makes the spleen the most important organ for antibacterial and antifungal immune reactivity. A better understanding of the function of this complex organ … Continue reading “Latest Research News on Spleen : May 21”

[1] A humic acid improves growth of tomato seedling in solution culture The effects of humic acid (HA) on nutrient accumulation and growth of tomato seedlings were evaluated in a solution of limited nutrient availability in a greenhouse. HA additions were made to the nutrient solution at rates of 0, 640, 1280, or 2560 mg/L. The addition of 1280 mg/L HA produced significant increases in shoot accumulation of P, K, Ca, Mg, Fe, Mn, and Zn as well as increased … Continue reading “Latest Research on Tomato Seedling : May 21”

Wheat Genetics Resource Center: The First 25 Years The Wheat Genetics Resource Center, a pioneering center without walls, has served the wheat genetics community for 25 years. The Wheat Genetics Resource Center (WGRC) assembled a working collection of over 11,000 wild wheat relatives and cytogenetic stocks for conservation and use in wheat genome analysis and crop improvement. Over 30,000 samples from the WGRC collection of wheat wild relatives, cytogenetic stocks, and improved germplasm have been distributed to scientists in 45 countries and … Continue reading “Latest Research on Wheat Genetics: Feb 2021”

Next-generation sequencing technologies and their implications for crop genetics and breeding Using next-generation sequencing technologies it is possible to resequence entire plant genomes or sample entire transcriptomes more efficiently and economically and in greater depth than ever before. Rather than sequencing individual genomes, we envision the sequencing of hundreds or even thousands of related genomes to sample genetic diversity within and between germplasm pools. Identification and tracking of genetic variation are now so efficient and precise that thousands of variants … Continue reading “Latest Research on Crop Genetics: Feb 2021”

Comparison of two Sorghum genotypes for sugar and fiber production A comparative analysis of the growth and yield performances of two late maturing and productive sweet and fiber sorghums has been conducted, with the perspective of their introduction in temperate Italian climate areas as competitive multi-product crops. Sweet type sorghum `Wray’ (Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench ssp. bicolor), and the nonsweet type, `H173′ (hybrid Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench×Sorghum docna var. technicum), were grown in a field trial under well-watered conditions in … Continue reading “Latest Research on Sorghum genotypes: Feb 2021”

Winter Wheat Seedling Emergence from Deep Sowing Depths Growers in low‐precipitation (<300 mm annual) dryland wheat‐fallow areas of the inland Pacific Northwest need winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cultivars that emerge from deep sowing depths in dry soils. Stand establishment is the most important factor affecting winter wheat grain yield in this region. Despite poor resistance to disease, modest grain yield potential, and other problems, the outdated soft white winter wheat (SWWW) cultivar Moro is widely sown in these dry … Continue reading “Latest Research on Wheat Seedling: Jan 2021”

Effects of shade on arbuscular mycorrhizal colonization and growth of crops and tree seedlings in Central India The study was conducted to investigate the effects of different light intensities (25, 50, 67, and 100% of full sun [open]) on arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) colonization and growth of two intercrops (a rainy season crop, Phaseolus mungo Roxb. var. PU-35 and a winter crop, Triticum aestivum L. var. WH-147) and seedlings of two multipurpose tree species (Eucalyptus tereticornis Sm. [Clone C-7, ITC, Bhadrachalam] … Continue reading “Latest Research on Growth of Crops: Jan 2021”

Evaluation of salt tolerance in rice genotypes by multiple agronomic parameters The lack of an effective evaluation method for salt tolerance in the screening process is one of the reasons for limited success in conventional salt tolerance breeding. This study was designed to identify useful agronomic parameters for evaluation of salt tolerance and to evaluate genotypes by multiple agronomic parameters for salt tolerance at different growth stages. Twelve genotypes were grown in a greenhouse in sand and irrigated with nutrient … Continue reading “Latest Research on Rice Genotypes: Dec 2020”

Modelling biomass production and yield of horticultural crops: a review Descriptive and explanatory modelling of biomass production and yield of horticultural crops is reviewed with special reference to the simulation of leaf area, light interception, dry matter (DM) production, DM partitioning and DM content. Most models for prediction of harvest date (timing of production) are descriptive. For DM production many descriptive and explanatory models have been developed. Most explanatory models are photosynthesis-based models. Important components of photosynthesis-based models are leaf … Continue reading “Latest Research on Horticultural Crops : Dec 2020”

The effect of fly ash on plant growth and yield of tomato A gradual increase in fly ash concentrations in the normal field soil (0, 10, 20 … 100% volume/volume) increased the porosity, water holding capacity, pH, conductivity, C.E.C., sulphate, carbonate, bicarbonate, chloride, P, K, Ca, Mg, Mn, Cu, Zn and B. Fly ash additions to soil caused significant reductions in nitrogen content, it being almost nil in 90 and 100%. Tomato plants grown in the ash-soil mixture showed luxuriant … Continue reading “Latest Research on Yield of Tomato : Nov 2020”
