Article
Full-text available
Lignocellulosic materials form the building block of 50% of plant biomass comprising non-chewable agri-components like wheat straw, rice stubbles, wood shavings and other crop residues. The degradation of lignin, cellulose and hemicellulose is complicated and presently being done by chemical process for industrial application through a very energy...
Article
Nanobionics involves the improvement of plant or plant productivity using nanomaterials. Growth of a plant from a seed encompasses various factors which are directly or indirectly dependent upon the imbibition of micro and macro nutrients and vital elements from the soil. Since most of the nutrition is physiologically unavailable to the plants, it...

Melatonin was discovered as a pineal gland hormone in animals and is now more significantly known as a signaling molecule in plants' biotic and abiotic stressors. Melatonin has been traced back to prokaryotic organisms during evolution and its primary function of antioxidant scavenging free radicals in photosynthetic prokaryotic bacteria is a lesse...
Article
Soil actinomycetes are known as very versatile micro-machinery having tremendous potential to produce enzymes like cellulases, chitinases, proteases, and other agro-biochemicals, which are very instrumental in soil reclamation and sustainable soil health. The metabolic aspects of actinomycetes offer enormous possibilities for industrial and commerc...

Background According to the current scenario with millions of deaths worldwide, the outbreak of COVID-19 has really created global havoc. The vast spreading of COVID-19 has already challenged the healthcare system and economy of the world. Every country is now putting their best efforts to develop their own standards, strategies and policies to fig...
Chapter
Fungal diversity enables us to discover different kinds of metabolites. Higher fungi are involved in secondary metabolite production. Metabolites are an intermediate response that completes physiological digestion outcomes that determine multiple critical biological activities in the human body such as signals as well as stimulating and inhibitory...

Panchagavya is combination of five different products, cow milk, curd, ghee, dung and urine obtained from cows. It has been traditionally utilized as an excellent, organic, cheaper, and effective source of manure in India. The major impact has been observed in improvement of various factors including soil alkalinity, sodicity, acidity, fertility, n...

Honey is a natural biological product from nectar of the flowers and is of immense medicinal and culinary importance to human beings. Usually, the honey is consumed in its natural form without much processing. In recent times, some of the food processers are developing flavoured honey candies and thins for more convenience of eating as dry product....

THE NEED The crop production has become extremely toxic due to the extensive use of chemicals for pest management. It is an urgent requirement for technology to step in for reducing the chemical pest management and at the same time develop tools for physical pest management. The scope of using the rural, low-cost mechanisms is extremely less explor...
Article
Biomolecule present in onion, garlic, apple and papaya extracts can be used to reduce metal ions to nanoparticles in a single step green synthesis process. This biogenic reduction of metal ions to base metal is quite rapid, rapidly conducted at room temperature and pressure, and easily scaled up. Chemically synthesized silver nanoparticles (CH-AgNP...
Article
The number of bacteria isolates from living rooms in 55 (bacterial growth was observed in 39 plates out of 40 plates only 1 plate were devoid of bacteria) in rural areas and 41 (bacterial growth was observed in 37 plates out of 40 plates 3 plate are devoid of bacteria) in urban areas was recorded. The present investigation clearly indicates that th...
