    ABSTRACT: This study aimed to compare different cultivation techniques and plot levels on macronutrient utilization of lowland rice grown on acid sulfate soil for sustainable production. Cultivation technique (Modified Cultivation (MC) technique and Conventional Cultivation (CC) technique) and plot level (upper plot and lower plot) were experimental factors. Under MC technique, farmer applied 187.5 kg ha-1 of compound fertilizer (16-20-0) and 18.75 kg ha-1 of KC1 (0-0-60) at planting, incorporated the previous rice stubble, transplanted rice seedlings and followed 2 weeks flooding and 1 week completely drainage system. Under CC technique, farmer applied 312.5 kg ha-1 of 16-20-0 compound fertilizer at planting, burned the previous rice stubble, broadcasted rice seeds and followed continuous flooding throughout the growing period. Upper plot was directly irrigated from drainage canal and lower plot was irrigated with the drained water from upper plot. Compared with CC technique, MC technique improved soil macronutrients content, especially N and P improving utilization of those nutrients by rice plant. Utilization of most macronutrients by rice was not statistically affected by plot level. It was suggested that farmers should follow MC technique to meet higher macronutrient utilization of lowland rice for sustainable production under acid sulfate soil.

    ABSTRACT: The study was carried out in three locations (a total of 7 environments) of Northern Ethiopia from 2011-2013 cropping seasons and thirteen sesame genotypes were evaluated. The objective of this study was to determine the magnitude of GxE interaction and stability of sesame genotypes. The experiment was laid out in randomized complete block design with three replications and a total plot size of 14 m2. The Additive Main effects and Multiplicative Interaction (AMME) model for grain yield detected significant effects of the genotypes (37.3% Sum of Squares (SS)), environments (29.5% Sum of Squares) and GenotypexEnvironment interaction (25.9% SS). The model also extracted five significant Interaction Principal Component Analysis (TPCA) with a total of 96.9% SS and 90.3% corresponding degrees of freedom. Acc-034 (G4) (926.8 kg ha-1) followed by Ace #031 (Gl) (895.1 kg ha-1) had the highest average yield which was much greater than the grand mean (742.9 kg ha-1) and declared as area specific adapted genotypes. Based on the magnitude of the IPCA1, Yield Stability Index (YSI) and Sum of Interaction Principal Component (SIPC), Setit-1 (G12) with greater yield (832.7 kg ha-1) than the grand mean was declared as widely adapted genotype. Environments El, E2 andE4 were unfavorable environments while E5, E6 andE7 were favorable environments and E3 was moderately favorable environment for most of the sesame genotypes.

    ABSTRACT: Cotton plant is one of the most important cash crops cultivated globally in several countries. It provides raw material for cotton textile industry and also is the source for edible oil. In this study, it carried out to analysis of genetic diversity of 20 cotton (Gossypium spp.) gremplasm line using Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA (RAPD) molecular markers. A total of 22 RAPD primers were used for the screening of 20 germplasm line out of which 2322 fragments were amplified with 20 random primers and 73.7% were polymorphic. Genetic similarity matrix based on Jaccard similarity coefficients of cotton genotypes were ranging from 0.14-0.79. These coefficients were used to construct a dendrogram using the Unweighted Pair Group of Arithmetic Means (UPGMA). All 20 cotton genotypes were grouped into seven clusters. The largest cluster consists of 7 genotypes. The highest similarity among the cotton varieties were observed between NBRI-77 and NBRI-75 (0.768). Present study indicated a great deal of germplasm diversity among these 20 genotypes. Our study also reveal that RAPD technology is potentially simple, rapid, reliable and effective method of detecting polymorphism for assessing genetic diversity between genotype and help in the selection of parent for hybridization.

    ABSTRACT: The effects of combined stress of aluminum (Al) and iron (Fe) on plant root were studied using four soybean genotypes differing in Al+Fe tolerance in nutrient solutions. Those genotypes were selected based on their root length sensitivity index. The results showed that the root growth inhibition of Anjasmoro and Yellow Biloxi (Al-Fe tolerant genotypes) was 14.04%, less than Tanggamus and Lawit (Al-Fe sensitive genotypes) which was 60.38%. Anjasmoro and Yellow Biloxi accumulated less Al and Fe in root and shoot than Tanggamus and Lawit.

    ABSTRACT: Tomato Mosic Virus (ToMV) disease is one of the most devastating viral diseases of tomato worldwide. In order to accelerate ToMV resistance breeding, it is very important to develop a molecular marker to distinguish the resistance lines and susceptible lines. The objective of this study was to develop allele-specific PCR marker linked to Tm22 for deployment in resistant breeding. In the allele-specific PCR method, the specific primer-3 that introduced G-T mismatch could distinguish the resistant lines from susceptible lines when annealing temperature was 54°C. On the other hand, the specific primer-8 introduced C-T mismatch, which could distinguish susceptible lines from resistance lines when annealing temperature was 54±°C. In the verification experiment, the SCAR assay was consistent with the allele-specific PCR assay. The method of allele-specific PCR will provide breeders with a powerful tool in selection of Tm22 resistance genes in tomato breeding program.

    ABSTRACT: Alternate bearing is one of the major cultural problems and economic drawbacks particularly in olive groves which is the main fruit tree crop in the Mediterranean area as well as southern Europe. Changes in hormone concentrations might be attributed to alternate bearing habit. Therefore, concentrations of Abscisic Acid (ABA), Indole Acetic Acid (IAA), Gibberellic Acid-like substances (GA) and Kinetin-like Cytokinin were determined and their relationship to flower bud formation was examined during on and off years. Results showed significant differences in IAA, ABA, GA3-like and Kinetin-like-Cytokinin between on and off cropping years in various tissues of olive trees. Relative balances between GA3-like and an ABA concentration in tissues might be a key regulator of floral development and alternate bearing. Olive growers are advised to do fruit thinning during on year crop to reduce the occurrence of this phenomena.

    ABSTRACT: Salinity responses to salinity stress in Thai indigenous rice and an improved variety (PTT1) were investigated. Pokkali (salt-tolerant) and IR29 (salt-sensitive) were used as standards. Sodium chloride at a concentration of 103 mM added into the Yoshida's nutrient solution was used for the salinity treatment and the responses were detected on day ten after salinity stress application. The classification of young rice seedlings for Na and K accumulation as well as physiological response based on salinity tolerances were then investigated. The results showed that all twelve varieties were classified into three main groups including tolerant, moderately tolerant and susceptible. Pokkali, PTT1 and the indigenous rice cultivars ULR198 and KKU-ULR076 were identified as salt tolerant. The salt-tolerant exhibited low Na content but accumulated high K resulting in a lower Na/K ratio, a higher survival rate and a lower salt injury score than the other varieties. These findings may be further employed for gene bank management on rice breeding programs.
