Yellowishness in wheat occurs due to Stripe rust disease. Yellow rust is basidiomycete fungus Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici. Yellow rust can cause losses of up to 40 % with some field destroyed completely. Generally occur throughout wheat production areas at high elevations In northern & southern areas of temperate regions. The cool climate f...

The coincidence of terminal heat stress and late grain filling stage is a major constraint in wheat. The objectives of this study were to determine the thermo-sensitivity of reproductive stages of wheat, optimize the application of exogenous selenium to wheat, and explore the correlation of biochemical and agronomic attributes of wheat under heat s...

Artificial intelligence is a powerful tool that can be used to improve agricultural productivity and profitability. However, it is important to collaborate with an experienced company that has a clear idea of your goals before you get started. With the right approach, AI can help you take your business to the next level. The application of artifici...

Abiotic stresses are the prime coercion to sustainable crop production in changing climate scenario. Heat and drought stresses at reproductive as well as vegetative stages of rice cause extensive reduction in its yield. Being a multifunctional amino acid, proline is being used to diminish numerous biotic and abiotic stresses of plants. A pot experi...

Climate change has been a serious problem in our industrialized world for the last century. We have faced its devastating effects on the environment, agriculture and human population. In current scenarios, around 3.8 billion people are predicted to live in areas with severe water problems by 2025. As the majority of staple crops are sensitive to en...

Declining soil fertility and crop yields are common in arid and semi–arid areas. Sustainable technologies that halt or reverse this trend are required to ensure food security. The use of compost for soil amendment should build soil resilience to drought. However, manure (which is a raw material in compost production) is used as a fuel in many semi-...

Poor quality of sandy loam soils is the main reason for low crop yield. Improvement of physicochemical properties of these soils is very challenging. Addition of organic sources may improve the soil properties. Therefore, this study investigated the adequacy of poultry-manure-compost (PMC) and pressmud-compost (PrMC) at 0 (control), 2, 4, 6, 8, and...

Seed inoculation with bacterial species has the potential to increase yield and agro-qualitative attributes of forage crops. This study determined the response of forage maize to three plant growth promoting rhizobacteria [PGPR1 (Azotobacter chroococcum), PGPR2 (Pseudomonas flourescens) and PGPR3 (Bacillus megaterium)] inoculated individually and i...

In Pakistan, low crop yields are a common problem of sandy-loam arid and semi-arid agroecosystems. Poor nitrogen use efficiency (NUE) and widespread soil nitrogen (N) deficiency resulting from higher N losses are the main reasons for low yields. Compost may offer a nutrient source in this context as it is relatively stable, has a high NUE and crop...

Agriculture continues to constitute the backbone of Pakistan's economy by contributing 21.4% to national GDP raw material to important industries such as textile and sugar industry. 65% of its population is directly or indirectly involved with agriculture, but still farm productivity is much less as compared to other countries. One the reason for l...

Agriculture sector serves as the backbone of Pakistan's economy by contributing 21.4% to national GDP. The share of livestock sector in agricultural GDP is more than 11%. Pakistan is blessed with 39.7 million heads of cattle and 34.6 million buffalos. The gross milk production in Pakistan is around 51 million tons which is not sufficient enough to...

Nitrogen (N) is one of the major limitations to crop productivity. Therefore, a field study was conducted to examine the impacts of N application strategies: N1– 20% of N at sowing through broadcast + 79% N at mid-season through fertigation + 1% of N at flowering through foliar application, N2– 40% of N at sowing through broadcast + 59% of N at mid...

Furrow irrigation commonly results in high nitrogen (N) losses from soil profile via deep infiltration. Estimation of such losses and their reduction is not a trivial task because furrow irrigation creates highly non-uniform distribution of soil water that leads to preferential water and N fluxes in soil profile. Direct measurements of such fluxes...

Organic manure from different sources could be an effective substitute of chemical fertilizers. Therefore, the present study compares the effect of varying level (0, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 t ha-1) of two types of compost, i.e poultry manure compost (PM compost) and press-mud compost (PrM compost) on the yield of maize. The experiment was conducted at Agron...

Macro-nutrient deficiency, especially nitrogen, is a common problem in the calcareous soils of Pakistan. From this perspective, a field nitrogen management trial was conducted using four N levels (75 kg ha -1 , 150 kg ha -1 , 225 kg ha -1 , 300 kg ha -1) and three potentially higher yielding maize cultivars (FH-810, DTC, C-20) . Results of this stu...
