Oak tasar sericulture has been introduced in Manipur in early year 1970 by hybridization between two divergent species, the result of which christened Antheraea proyeli.J. (Jolly et al., 1969) has been performed promisingly in sub Himalayan region of India spreading in Jammu & Kashmir., Himachal Pradesh and Uttaranchal in North West and Manipur, Na...

Increasing the consumption of natural substances has increased the demand for biological sources such as Spirulina platensis. The study quantitatively investigates the antioxidant potential and phytonutrient contents in aqueous and ethanol extracts of spirulina. The spirulina was collected from a local farm of Pondicherry and mass cultured in our r...

Serpentine soils are contaminants of naturally occurring metal-rich agricultural and fallow lands due to erosion of the serpentine site with consequences and deterioration of soil, water quality, and water sources in the ecosystem. The harsh climatic conditions due to the high concentration of potential toxic elements, organic pollutants, and acidi...

Wetlands are a ubiquitous ecosystem, found in all regions and climatic conditions across the globe. Kanwar wetland is one of the largest freshwater, inland wetlands in the South Asian subcontinent, and was proposed for the Ramsar site during the early 1990s due to its unique habitat characteristics. Unfortunately, it has not yet been included in th...

Agriculture is the base economic structure for many developed and developing countries with critical infrastructural share countries the capital grries. The present study is about knowing how agricultural activities are causing surface and groundwater pollution. The crucial agricultural practices affect other environmental services like a nutrient...

Sericulture relies upon the rearing of silkworm (Bombyx mori L.) on mulberry leaves. Consequently, the production of silk has a direct relationship with larval growth and development. One of the elective methods for developing cocoons is an improvement of mulberry leaves with the right supplements. The result of Spirulina on all nutrigenic characte...

ARTICLE INFO ABSTRACT Mulberry gardens are being contaminated by various pesticides and fungicides from nearby practice. Specifically copper containing fungicides utilized in adjacent cultivations where thecrops is being protected by copper fungicides to control the fungal pathogens. Copper besides other heavy metals and pesticides can also alters...

DNJ was studied for its efficacy in glycogenesis metabolism. Streptozotocin (STZ) is known to induce diabetes. Mice were exposed to different doses (40mg/kg.bw and 60mg/kg.bw) and periods of 30 days of STZ and DNJ. Exposure to STZ resulted in the increase in the blood glucose levels with the corresponding decrease in liver glycogen and increase in...

Sericulture is agro based industry which involves in the production of silk from a silkworm. Several trace elements having national potential for growth and development of insects. In the present study we evaluated zinc, spirulina and their mixed effect on Vth instar B. mori larvae and observed the cocoon commercial character such as shell weight,...
Conference Paper
Mulberry leaf extract contains flavonoids which work as the scavenger of blood lipid radicals. Mulberry extracts showed the hypolipidimic effects which elevate low density lipoprotein receptor gene expression (LDLR) and the clearance proficiency of LDL (low density lipoprotein) and decline in the lipid biosynthesis. Mulberry tree root bark contains...

Abstract Andhra Pradesh occupies second place in production of mulberry silk and Anantapur district rank first and the district is having more amount of fluoride content in irrigated water. Further, the cocoon production is seriously affected due to various biotic and abiotic factors. In china fluoride is causing considerable damage to silkworm cro...
