Volume: 12 | Issue no: 1-2017 | Pagination: 48-50
Dengue is a mosquito borne arboviral disease caused by dengue virus, which belongs to the Flaviviridae family. It causes a febrile illness, which is usually self-limiting; but occasionally may have serious complications. It associated hypokalemic paralysis is an unusual neurological complication of dengue fever. Dengue epidemics are becoming a regular threat every few years in West Bengal, Delhi leading to significant mortality and morbidity. The objectives of this paper was to study the causes and effects of flavivirus in India.
Integrated Nutrient Management Practices In Summer Groundnut
Author:B. K. Behera1, H. Patro2 Andm. Ray2
Volume: 12 | Issue no: 1-2017 | Pagination: 36-47
Groundnut is an important oilseed crop of Odisha grown in Kharif, Rabi and summer season and average yield is well below the national average. It is an exhaustive crop and reported to remove higher quantity of nutrients from the soil than a normal rice crop does. This problem is more visualized with increased use of high yielding genotypes across the state and country. Use of high analysis fertilizers containing no micronutrients, little or no use of organic manure and imbalance and injudicious application of nutrient fertilizer create problem of multi nutrient deficiencies which result in low yield. Information on yield reduction due to omission of any nutrient and their interaction effect is very much limited. Keeping in view the above facts, the present investigation was aimed to maximize the yield in groundnut through integrated nutrient management practices.

Author:M. S. Kamble1, S. P. Sawant1 And R. M. Pawar2
Volume: 12 | Issue no: 1-2017 | Pagination: 32-35
The significant differences between 32 genotypes of wheat for all the characters were observed. Genotypes were grouped into six clusters with cluster I having maximum genotypes (18) followed by cluster III and clusters II, clusters IV and VI were monogenotypic. Maximum inter-cluster distance was recorded between cluster V and VI (860.24) and maximum intra-cluster distance was recorded in cluster III (130.18). Cluster III registered maximum cluster mean values for grain yield and important yield contributing characters like ear head length, spikelets per spike, tillers per running meter, grains per spike, 1000 grain weight, hectolitre weight and protein content. The highest contribution towards genetic diversity was contributed by plant height followed by protein content and 1000 grain weight. Therefore, for hybridization genotypes from cluster V and VI should be selected for obtaining desired recombinants in the segregating generations.

Volume: 12 | Issue no: 1-2017 | Pagination: 26-31
Ramanayakanpatti, Pudhuchathiram block, Namakkal district, Tamil Nadu is one of the main small onion cultivating village in an area of 712 acres. In this village small onion variety Co4 is cultivated mainly in Rabi season (October ? December). Onion is mainly affected by basal rot and thrips resulting in a yield loss of 30 ? 40 per cent. Farmers sprayed profenophos @ 4 ml/ lit from 30 days after sowing at 15 days interval thrice for thrips management and also followed seed treatment with SAAF @ 3 g/kg to control basal rot. They spent Rs. 6600 ? 7000 /0.4 ha- for chemical spray. Under front line demonstration, IPDM practice was followed to control basal rot and thrips in small onion in an area of 30 ha covering 75 farmers. A package of IPDM practices was followed for entire crop duration , which included seed treatment with bio control agents Trichoderma viride @ 4g/kg of bulb + Pseudomonas fluorescence@10g/kg of bulb was done 12 hrs before sowing. Then five days after sowing of bulbs, a barrier crop maize variety NK 6240 was sown around the field and ridges at a spacing of 15 cm interval, to prevent the entry of thrips from the outside field. Thereafter, blue sticky traps were installed at 10 m interval with a total of 20 traps /0.4 ha at 30 cm height above the onion plant. It attracted 82 per cent of thrips within the field in 30 - 40 days after sowing. All the IPDM practiced farmers did not spray any chemical for the entire crop cultivation period and also they spend only Rs.1028/-for IPDM practices in addition to getting a yield of 7.3 to 8 tonnes /0.4ha.

Volume: 12 | Issue no: 1-2017 | Pagination: 21-25
The present study was aimed at isolation and characterization of urease producing bacterial strains for improving the strength of cement concrete. A total of 1500 colonies were isolated from different samples like cowshed, poultry farm, milk, soil and pigeon dung. These isolated cultures were purified on phenol red agar plates. Out of total, 17 bacterial cultures showed pink coloured colonies indicating the presence of urease enzyme. These isolates were characterised on the basis of Gram?s staining, size, shape, colour (also known as pigmentation), texture and elevation, ability to form endospores, catalase test, hydrogen sulphide production and acid production and carbohydrate utilization test.

Volume: 12 | Issue no: 1-2017 | Pagination: 15-20
Ten groundnut genotypes were evaluated to know the role of G x E interaction and also to study stability performance over three environments. Analysis of variance revealed highly significant differences among the genotypes for all the characters studied. Genotypes x environment interactions were significant for all the characters under study indicating influence of environmental conditions.Stability analysis showed that both linear and non-linear components of G x E interactions were highly significant for all the characters. Environment (E1) was observed to be most suitable for better expression of yield and its contributing characters. None of the genotype was found to be average stable for all the characters. Of all the genotypes, JL-24 and Phule Unnati for fresh pod yield/plant and TPG-41 and JL-24 for dry pod yield/plant exhibited average stabilityacross the environments.

Author:Venkateshalu And Mahesh Math
Volume: 12 | Issue no: 1-2017 | Pagination: 8-14
Evaluation of dinotefuran 20 per cent SG against sucking pests of okra was undertaken in an experimental block at Agricultural Research Station, Bheemarayanagudi during Rabi 2012-13. The test chemical, dinotefuran 20% SG @ 30 g a.i. per ha is most effective dosage for the management of sucking pests like leafhopper, A. biguttula, aphids, A. gossypii, thrips, T. tabaci and whiteflies, B. tabaci and also recorded higher okra fruit yield of 93.01 q per ha. Apart from this, dinotefuran 20 per cent SG at varied dosages is quite safer to natural enemies. So, dinotefuran 20% SG @ 30 g a.i. per ha can be used for the effective management of sucking pests and for realizing higher okra fruit yield.

Volume: 12 | Issue no: 1-2017 | Pagination: 1-7
The common biochemical constituents like chlorophyll and carotenes are important in imparting resistance to the crop plants. Distinct variation in chlorophyll content of pigeonpea leaves of a set of twelve genotypes which were inoculated with representatives ten isolates. In the chlorophyll ?a?, chlorophyll ?b?, total chlorophyll and carotene content have recorded in higher amounts in resistant genotypes (ICP-7220, IPA-7-2) followed by moderately resistant (ICP-13174 and DA-11) and moderately susceptible (ICP-11294 and ICP-4725), whereas lower amount susceptible (BSMR-736 and ICP-7182) genotypes and highly susceptible genotypes (MAL-24, Bahar). The maximum chlorophyll and carotene content were found in resistant genotypes at early stage of plants with minimum reduction whereas, lowest content was found in susceptible genotypes old plants with highest reduction. It showed same trend in a-virulent isolates in which lowest reduction chlorophyll and carotenes content were found as compared to virulent (aggressive) isolates.

The objective of this study was to evaluate the carcass characteristics of male and female Japanese quails at 6 weeks of age. A total of 100 one-day old Japanese quail chicks were procured and placed in two separate pens each containing 50 chicks. Sex determination was carried out in day-old chicks by cloacal method. All the birds were provided with a balanced diet containing 2900 kcal of ME/kg of ration and 24 per cent CP with ad lib provision of water during the entire experimental period. At the end of the experiment, five birds from each group were sacrificed by cervical dislocation and different parameters like eviscerated yield, neck yield, wing yield, back yield, breast yield, giblet yield, thigh yield and drumstick yield were studied. A significantly higher (P<0.05) percentage of eviscerated yield, giblet yield and breast yield was observed in case of the female Japanese quails as compared to males; however, no significant difference was noticed in terms of neck yield, wings yield, back yield, thigh yield and drumsticks yield among both male and female Japanese quails.
Pulses: In Need Of More Attention
Volume: 11 | Issue no: 2-2016 | Pagination: 321-325
Pulses are an integral part of many diets across the globe. Pulses have great potential to improve human health, conserve our soils, protect the environment and contribute to global food security. The diversified agro-climatic condition in India positively supports variety of pulses in various regions. Pulses are grown in on area of 22-23 million hectares which has an annual production of 13-18 million tonnes. There is always a gap between actual yield and potential yield. This gap bridging would substantially increase country?s pulses production. The potential areas of pulses may be identified and if provided with technological support then the area under pulses will be showing an upward trend.The total pulses production in the country is almost static although substantial productivity improvement in many of the pulse crops has been made. The static production of pulses is mainly due to poor adoption of improved varieties and production technologies by farmers. Even though pulses have high export value, we are importing pulses in order to meet the internal demands, as India is the largest producer as well as consumer of pulses. The instability in production has to be improved upon to meet the growing demands by using the emerging technologies.
