Basidiomata of Inocybe caroticolor were collected from two different Quercus forests in Swat, KP, Pakistan. Based on morphology and molecular phylogenetic analyses of ITS and 28S rDNA regions, these basidiomata were found to represent I. caroticolor and placed within the Inocybe viscata group. Our I. caroticolor specimens are molecularly supported...

In this review we discussed the role of mycorrhiza in organic farming. How mycorrhizal association, will help to improve and encouraging the idea of organic farming. How mycorrhizal association help the plants to grow and yield better without applying of chemical fertilizers and following the conventional farming practices. We discussed how AMF hel...
Article
Macrofungi were survayed and collected in Pakistan during a period of 2014–2019. Basidiomata of Lepiota lilacea were collected from different forests of Swat and Kurruam districts, Khyber Pahtukhwa, Pakistan. These were analyzed by sequencing the rDNA internal transcribed spacer region. The morphology of the taxon is also described. Based on morpho...

Chapter
Numerous factors restrain food crop production in semi-arid and Mediterranean regions. Soil fertility and plant nutrition have had a significant effect on crop production in the 20th century. Biochar has been utilized in agriculture to increase soil health, improve soil fertility, and increase crop productivity. Disturbed edaphic properties like hi...
Chapter
The mulches are mainly used for increasing water infiltration, evaporation, soil temperature change, weed control, evaporation prevention, and crop yields increase. Increased biological activities in the soil, changed nutrient levels and contributed to the maintenance and/or increase of soil organic matter (SOM). There would also possibly be a favo...
Chapter
Global climate changes such as increasing CO2 levels, temperature increases, drought, etc., have been shown to adversely affect agricultural products. Weeds can be seen as a major problem because they seem to fight at the expense of the crop for resources such as light, water, and nutrients. Weed species are commonly favored in crops that are more...
Chapter
Abiotic stressors have been demonstrated to have a significant impact on plant development and agricultural production, and yields have been clearly stalled or dropped in economically important crops where only large inputs ensure high yields. The latest manifestations of climate changes are thought to have exacerbated the detrimental impacts of ab...
Article
Determining optimum plant populations with improved planting methods and adequate fertilization with soil modification possesses a gigantic potential to enhance maize productivity. Experiments were performed on a farmer’s field in the framework of Farmers’ Field School during the Kharif season of 2014. The experiment design was RCB, with split plot...
Article

Dryland agriculture is synonymous with drylands, with cool wet season followed by warm dry season. Crop production in dryland areas needs to be increased to help meet the needs of a increasing world population, urbanization, and meat-rich diet change. A significant contribution to this change would be the capture and use in dryland areas of a great...
Chapter
Rice is a staple food of more than half of the world’s population; more than 3.5 billion inhabitants depend on rice for obtaining 20% of their daily calorie intake. Nitrogen is the most important for crop growth and yield potential. Indeed, nitrogen is essential to stimulate tillering, leaf growth, photosynthesis, and protein synthesis. Significant...

The present investigation was aimed at enhancing the quality and productivity of barley by the fertilizer and chito-san application. The field experiments were conducted in the northern region of Jordan, under the rain fed conditions in the main growing seasons of 2014/2015 and 2015/2016. The experiment was conducted in a well-designed split-plot h...

Field experiments were conducted in the years 2014/2015 with two soil types from northern part of Jordan. The soil types that were chosen for the study were yellow Mediterranean sandy loam soil (site A) and red Mediterranean silt loam soil (site B). To determine the effect of foliar application of chitosan on the wheat seed yield and related variab...
Presentation
Evapotranspiration (ET) is the sum of evaporation and plant transpiration from the Earth's land and ocean surface to the atmosphere. Evapotranspiration accounts for the movement of water to the air from sources such as the soil, canopy interception, and water bodies. Evapotranspiration is a significant water loss from drainage basins. Types of vege...
Article
Biological control is defined as to protect plants against pathogen by controlling factors influencing growth of plants. Mycorrhiza is defined as a mutualistic association of plants with soil borne fungi. Arbuscular mycorrhiza is considered to be more common type of such association. This association saves plants from different pathogens by acting...
