Hexaploid wheat is the main cereal food crop for most people but it is highly influenced by climatic variations. The influence of these climatic variations was studies in wheat genotype WH -1184 in field conditions under two different environments (normal and late sown) and it was found that the genotype is less yielding under late sown conditions....

Stripe rust instigated by Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici causes major yield loss in wheat In this study, disease resistance was induced in wheat by pre-activation of pathogenesis related (PR) genes using two different nano-formulations (NFs) i.e. Chitosan- Salicylic acid (SA) NFs (CH-NFs) and Zinc sulphate NFs (Zn-NFs). These NFs were synthesi...

For effective trait selection, it is very important to have knowledge of association between traits and heritability. So, a study on phenotypic diversity in pearl millet [Pennisetum glaucum (L.) R. Br.] was intended in a set of 48 maintainer lines using 9 quantitative traits. Significant mean sum of squares indicated presence of sufficient variatio...
Article
An investigation was carried out to study genetic diversity and associations between yield components and agronomical traits in 60 genotypes of fenugreek. Analysis of variance showed significant differences among cultivars for all the growth parameters studied. High genotypic and phenotypic coefficient of variance was recorded for seed yield follow...

Studies on genetic diversity in Pennisetum germplasm are the promising opportunities for the use of un-domesticated materials for improving pearl millet varieties. DNA based markers have now emerged as a potential genomic tool for estimation of genetic diversity among various cultivars and varietal identification. In present study, genetic diversit...

Plant morphological characters are universally undisputed descriptors applied for testing Distinctness, Uniformity and Stability (DUS) of crop varieties. In the present study, 49 inbred lines of pearl millet evaluated for 29 morphological traits using DUS descriptors revealed significant variation among the inbreds for different characters. Most of...
