    ABSTRACT: RAPD (random amplified polymorphic DNA) and ISSR (inter simple sequence repeats) markers were used to study DNA polymorphism of thirty Grewia optiva genotypes raised from seeds collected from various districts of Himachal Pradesh (India) and selected on the basis of morphological parameters. In general, the genotypes exhibited a very high level of molecular diversity and DNA polymorphism. Using 25 RAPD and 18 ISSR primers molecular diversity based on Jaccard’s similarity coefficients among 30 genotypes ranged from 0.17-0.83 in RAPD assay and 0.30-0.84 in ISSR assay. RAPD primers amplified more loci than ISSR primers. RAPD and ISSR primers amplified 96.31 and 91.72% polymorphic loci, respectively. The dendrogram derived using the unweighted pair-group method with arithmetic averaging (UPGMA) clustered the genotypes into different groups reflecting geographical sub-structuring of the genetic diversity. Genotype SO-12 (Kasauli) was found to be the most divergent genotype which could be used for number of combinations to be established in the seed orchards and as a parent in hybridization programme.

    ABSTRACT: Globally soils contain around twice the amount of carbon in the atmosphere and thrice in vegetations. Therefore, soil is both 'a source and a sink' for greenhouse gases and balance between the functions is very delicate. The gases move continuously from one pool to another maintaining balance in different pools of the ecosystem. Appropriate management of soil offers to the potential to provide solutions for each of the challenges related to food security and climate change. The estimated carbon sequestration potential of world soils lies between 0.4 to 1.2 Gt per year which includes 0.01-0.30 Gt per year from grasslands. Carbon sequestration can be enhanced in grasslands through grazing management, sowing favorable forage species, fertilizer application and irrigation, restoration of degraded grasslands etc. However, there are certain limitations that hinder in adopting the practices for enhancing carbon sequestration in grasslands. The limitations include continuous degradation of grasslands, changing climate, paucity of information on carbon stock of grasslands from developing countries, disagreement on systems for documenting carbon stock changes over a period of time, hindrance in policy implementations etc.

    ABSTRACT: Forty four spectral vegetation indices based on Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM+) data were compared for predicting vegetation cover in Nodushan arid and semi arid shrublands. The efficiency of the indices was evaluated based on calculating the critical error, power of prediction and the prediction interval for the error. MSAVI, TDVI, TVI, CTVI, NDVI, NRVI, IPVI, MND, TTVI, MSR and SRI provided the most accurate estimate of the vegetation cover with an error of less than 10%. MSAVI and TDVI had the lowest critical error (9.3%). The indices based on only near infrared and red bands gave the most accurate prediction of vegetation cover followed by the indices based on only near infrared and green bands (critical error of 10.7–11%), while the indices that use blue and/or shortwave infrared, or only visible (B-G-R) bands provided the least accurate estimate of the vegetation cover (critical error of 25–84%).

    ABSTRACT: A field experiment was carried out at Punjab Agricultural University, Ludhiana for 5 consecutive years (2005–06 to 2009–10) to study the effect of integrated nutrient management (INM) on productivity and economics in mung (Phaseolus aureus) - fodder oats (Avena sativa) bajra (Pennisetum glaucum) + cowpea (Vigna unguiculata) fodder cropping system. In the initial years of the study (2005–06 and 2006–07), 100% recommended dose of fertilizer (RDF) was significantly superior to rest of the treatments. In the later years the soil fertility in the farm yard manure (FYM) treatments improved resulting in almost equal fodder and grain yield of the crops in sequence. In the final year of the study, higher green fodder and grain yields of the cropping sequence were obtained with 75% RDF + 25% N through FYM as compared to 100% RDF. The average of five years data indicated that the green fodder yield of oat and pearl millet + cowpea and grain yield of mung and fodder equivalent yield recorded with 100% RDF and 75% RDF + 25% N through FYM were at par. The 75% RDF + 25% N through FYM recorded the highest fodder equivalent yield followed by 100% RDF. The highest monetary returns (Rs.57985/ha) and B: C ratio (1.68) were obtained with 100% RDF closely followed by 75% RDF + 25% N through FYM (Rs. 57466/ha net returns and 1.63 B: C ratio).
