Article
Interspecific hybridization with ‘Satputia’ (bisexual and cluster bearing) can be highly useful for the introgression of cluster bearing, high yield and gynoecism in sponge gourd (monoecious and solitary bearing). However, the occurrence of self-pollination in closed flowers and anthesis of two species at different time intervals creates hindrance...
Conference Paper
The yield potential of cucurbits mainly depends on sex ratio and branching pattern. To change the plant architecture, a study on effect of cutting on yield and important traits in sponge gourd cv. PSG-9 during rainy season was planned. Four treatments i.e. T1: normal plant (control without cutting), T2: promoting 1st generation (1G) branches by cut...

In present investigation, 110 locally developed genotypes from different breeding programmes in brinjal were classified into eleven clusters on the basis of their D2 values computed from Mahalanobis D2 statistics of twelve morphological traits, wherein inter-and intra-cluster distances highlighted the genetic divergence of the genotypes grouped amo...
Chapter
Brinjal (Solanum melongena L.) has great genetic wealth in its centre of origin, which is a foundation for crop improvement. So far, conventional breeding approaches were commonly used for improvement of yield, quality and resistance to insect pests and diseases, but the advent of biotechnological tools like embryo rescue, haploid induction, geneti...
Article
For in vitro micropropagation, short day tropical varieties of onion 'Agrifound Dark Red', 'Punjab Naroya' and 'PRO-6' were exposed to different concentrations and combinations of growth hormones. Pre-sterilization of basal plate of onion in 0.5% solution of bavistin followed by treatment with 0.1% mercuric chloride for 10 min. produced the highest...
Article
The improvement of pumpkin(Cucurbita moschata Duch ex Poir.) for intensive cultivation necessitates genetic studies, wherein, heterosis and combing ability were studied in half di-allel fashion involving bushy plants and butternut fruits. The genotypes, P-3621 was best general combiner for short vine, internode, equatorial diameter and high fruit s...

The tomato line IC 613995 was bred for resistance to the begomovirus that causes Tomato leaf curl virus (ToLCV) disease and was recommended for commercial cultivation in the Punjab state under the name Punjab Varkha Bahar-4 (PVB 4). ToLCV resistance of IC 613995 was confirmed through whitefly mediated inoculation trials and under natural disease pr...

Twelve genotypes of eggplant in BC3, BC4 and BC5 generations of CMS-lines derived from Solanum ae-thiopicum × Solanum melongena cross along with their maintainers were evaluated for eighteen quantitative charac-ters at Punjab Agricultural University Ludhiana. Analysis of variance depicted significant variation (P ≤ 0.05) for all the characters in a...

Brinjal (Solanum melongena L.) fruits were harvested at physiological maturity stage and packed in polymeric flms, viz heat shrinkable flm (15μ) and cling flm (15μ). The flm packed and unpacked (control) fruit were stored under ambient conditions. Both flms proved quiet effective in improving the post harvest life and maintaining the quality of fru...
Article
In this study, already developed pot based Hybrid Hydroponics Technology (HHT) (soilless) is experimentally tested by installing the same inside a micro-climatically controlled greenhouse to determine its effect on plant growth, yield, water & nutrient savings and cost reductions. It was observed that the effect of hybridization was much higher on...

Bell pepper (Capsicum annuum L.) fruits of cultivar Indra were harvested at bright green colour stage and packed in different packaging films, viz. heat shrinkable film (15 mu), cling film (15 mu) and low density polyethylene film (LDPE 25 mu). After packaging, the fruits were stored under two different conditions, i.e. super-market conditions (18-...

The fruits of Daisy mandarin were harvested at dark orange colour satge and packed in paper moulded trays followed by wrapping with different packaging films, viz., heat shrinkable film (15 μ), cling (15 μ) and low density polyethylene (25 μ LDPE) film. After packaging, the fruits were stored under ambient conditions (18- 20°C; 90-95% RH). The frui...

Direct plant regeneration of three eggplant genotypes, viz., BL-5, BR-14 and BSR-23 was studied with hypocotyl, cotyledon and leaf explants on Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium fortified with different concentrations BAP and Kin. The interaction of genotype, medium and explant gave 80.36% regeneration from cotyledons of BL-5 on MS medium fortified wi...

Full-text available
Eggplant is highly responsive to various tissue culture techniques. Somatic embryogenesis and direct organogenesis are widely studied protocols in this crop, but potential of regeneration varies with genotype, explant and culture media supplemented with different combination and concentration of growth hormones. The genotype is the most important f...

Among different explants, cotyledon showed highest regeneration and number of buds per explant on all media combinations. However, highest regeneration potential was observed on MS fortified with 3.0 mgl−1 BAP (80.36%), but number of buds per explant were highest (21.76) on MS media supplemented with 2.5 mgl−1 BAP+ 1.0 mgl−1 Kin. Plant regeneration...

Cotyledon explants of eggplant genotype BL-5 were used for standardizing Agrobacterium transformation. To develop regeneration baseline, cotyledon explants of in vitro grown seedlings of eggplant genotype i.e. BL-5 were regenerated on MS medium fortified with 2.0-3.0 mgl-1 BAP with or without 1.0 mgl-1 kin. Cotyledon was found the best for plant re...

In vitro plant regeneration of brinjal genotype BL-3 was tried using hypocotyl, cotyledon and leaf explants from in vitro raised seedlings on Murashige and Skoog medium fortified with 6-benzylamino purine (BAP) and kinetin (kin) combination (2.0-3.0 mgl -1 BAP with or without 1.0 mgl -1 kin). The cotyledon explant gave cent percent regeneration on...

Induction of somatic embryos in cultured hypocotyl, cotyledon and leaf explants of BL 5, BR 14 and BSR 23 genotypes of eggplant (Solanum melongena) was investigated on MS medium fortified with different concentrations of IBA and BAP. The statistical analysis showed significant differences among various interactions. Cotyledon of BL 5 exhibited 89.0...
