  • [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Effects of fertility levels and seeding rates on productivity, quality and nutrient uptake of linseed under rainfed condition were studied. Results revealed that the seed yield, nutrient content and uptake (NPKS) were significantly increased up to the application of 80-60-60-40 kg NPKS ha-1 although it was statistically at par with 60-45-45-30 kg NPKS ha-1. With respect to seeding rates, the maximum seed yield, quality and nutrient uptake were obtained with the plant density of 35 kg seed rate ha-1.

  • [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: A field experiment was conducted in sandy clay loam soil during winter season of 2012-13. The experimental field was infested with Melilotus alba, Chenopodium album, Cynodon dactylon, Phalaris minor and Medicago hispida during both the years. Among herbicidal treatments, sequential application of pendimethalin (1 kg/ha) as pre-emergence followed by quizalofop (50 g/ha) as post-emergence recorded lowest density and dry weight of weeds and showed highest yield of chickpea.

  • [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: The effect of varying levels of water stress simulated by polyethylene glycol (PEG) on oxidative parameters (malondialdehyde, MDA) and superoxide anion (O2-), the activities of antioxidant enzymes superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase (CAT), peroxidase (POD), ascorbate peroxidase (APX), glutathione reductase (GR), dehydroascorbate reductase (DHAR), as well as the content of non-enzymatic antioxidants ascorbate acid (ASA) and glutathione (GSH) were studied in the leaves and roots of weedy rice (Oryza sativa f. spontanea) heb07-2 and wr04-6, cultivated rice (Oryza sativa L.) variety yuefu and upland rice iapar9. Drought stress significantly increased MDA and O2- production. The MDA and O2-of heb07-2 increased significantly slower than other oxidants under drought indicating that heb07-2 accumulated lower ROS (reactive oxygen species) with intact cell membrane and lower level of lipid peroxidation. Under normal conditions, the activities of antioxidant enzymes in heb07-2, wr04-6, iapar9, and yuefu were similar. However, under stress, the activities of SOD, POD, CAT, APX, GR, and DHAR were significantly enhanced in heb07-2 than in iapar9 and wr04-6, whereas they were decreased in yuefu after 72 hrs of drought. The mechanism of drought tolerance in weedy rice involves enhanced antioxidant defense mechanisms.

  • [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Induced chlorophyll mutations and spectrum in cowpea var. Pusa Komal and Arka Garima treated with gamma rays and EMS was studied. Broad spectrum of chlorophyll mutations (albino, xantha, chlorina, viridis and xantha-viridis) were obtained in treatment 500 Gy gamma rays and 0.35% (6 hrs) EMS. Chemical mutagens appeared to be more effective in inducing maximum frequencies than physical mutagen in both the varieties.

  • [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: The anatomical and palynological features of three species Salvia cryptantha Montbret & Aucher ex Benth., S. candidissima Vahl subsp. occidentalis Hedge and S. forskahlei L. have been carried that show natural distribution in and around Eskişehir. It was found that S. cryptantha and S. candidissima subsp. occidentalis showed the broader distribution than S. forskahlei. In the cross-sections of the root, it was observed that the pith was completely covered by parenchyma cells. In cross sections of the stem from epidermis is covered by more eglandular and glandular hair. The presence of large paranchymatic cells was observed in the pith of the species. The species showed similarities in terms of leaf anatomy. Upper and lower surfaces of leaf are covered by more eglandular and glandular hair. Leaves are amphistomatic and bifacial. Plants have an amaryllis, a mesomorph and an anisocytic type stomata. The central vascular cylinder of leaf is composed of the phloem and the xylem bundle. Vascular bundle is collateral. Vascular bundle is covered by a typical parenchymatic bundle. They were determined as stephanocolpatae type and shaving uboblate-subprolate shape, tectate-reticulate-perforate/tectate-reticulate-granulate/tectate-bireticulate ornamentation of Salvia taxa of the pollen morphological studies.

  • [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: The present study reports the effect of application of nano-Zn oxide on chemical composition and antiinflammatory properties of Trachyspermum ammi Sprague essential oil and its main compounds. The essential oil was obtained from the seeds of the plant by hydrodistillation and analysed by GC/MS. The oil was predominantly composed of γ-terpinene (33.14%). Regarding the anti-inflammatory activity the oil exhibited a potent nitric oxide scavenging effect and inhibited the expression of inducible NO synthase. These results indicate that essential oil Trachyspermum ammi and its main compounds might be applicable in natural medicine as well as healthy food.

  • [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Several approaches to improve grain nutritive values involve in increasing seed accumulation of protein and micronutrients in rice. Therefore, a study was conducted to select a suitable combination of dicyandiamide (DCD) with organic manure (OM) and urea to improve protein and mineral content in rice grain of MR219. The protein (9.07-12.50%) and Ca, Mg, Zn, Cu, Fe and Mn concentrations increased from 1.92 to 21.05, 3.56 to 18.25, 2.25 to 20.22, 9.14 to 25.66, 3.34 to 27.20 and 5.17 to 23.86%, respectively due to the application of DCD with urea and OM. Moreover, the highest content of protein in grain was obtained for the application of DCD with urea and oil palm compost (OPC). Iron and Mn contents were also highest for DCD with urea and OPC, but Ca, Mg, Zn and Cu contents were highest for DCD with urea and poultry dung (PD) and kept similarity with DCD with urea and OPC.

  • [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Morphological traits of seeds and fruits belonging to Hippophae rhamnoides L. taxa (Sea buckthorn) collected from Kastamonu area in Black Sea region were investigated. Dimensions of fruit, seed and pedicel (length-width) are diagnostic characteristics for H. rhamnoides subsp. caucasica and those were measured and their shapes were observed. Observed that the measurement results of collected shapes and colors of samples were quite different.

  • [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: To investigate the role of nitric oxide in relieving chilling induced damages of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) during early germination, three factorial experiments were made in a completely randomized design for two consecutive years with three replications. Three concentrations (0, 10-4, 10-5 molar) of sodium nitroprusside were used as nitric oxide donor to examine the ability of nitric oxide seed presoaking in optimizing germination traits. All the traits revealed highly significant increase by the priming except for mean germination time and coefficient of velocity of germination that showed significant decrease. Results of germination traits revealed Chakwal-50 and Uqab-2002 and Faisalabad-2008 tolerant to chilling stress with nitric oxide priming.
