A Breeding Strategy for the Tropical EucalyptusA Breeding Strategy for the Tropical Eucalyptus

Автор: Budi Leksono,Yuji Ide and Susumu Kurinobu

Eucalyptus pellita is the most promising eucalypt species for both accelerating the recovery of degraded forestland and for use in commercial hardwood plantation programs, especially those designed to supply the pulp and paper industry in hot, humid tropical conditions. Moreover, early indications suggest that the tree improvement program that has been initiated will help to increase productivity, wood quality and (thus) demands for this wood. However, several issues related to aspects of the E. pellita breeding strategy need to be assessed to optimize the genetic improvement program, such as: priority traits for selection, the optimum age for selection, effects of genotype-environment interaction (GEI) on the selection, design of the seed orchards and realized genetic gains in successive generations. The overall efficacy of the genetic improvement program had not been assessed before the studies reported in these thesis, which assessed the results of activities conducted in the...

A bridge between quality and yield in tomatoA bridge between quality and yield in tomato

Автор: Poonam Choudhary and Jitendra Dhruve

Gibberellic acid treatment gave lowest fruit weight because GA3 works at low concentration but in present study the concentration of GA3 used was higher. This high concentration of GA3 shows negative effect on fruit characteristics. The foliar sprayed treatment of KNO3 improved plant height at harvest, fruit weight, fruit volume, fruit length and fruit girth, total soluble sugars, reducing sugars, potassium content and lycopene. Whereas foliar sprayed treatment of silicic acid improved yield and plant protection attributing characters. Overall it can be concluded that the pre harvest treatment of potassium nitrate and silicic acid were the best treatment to obtain excellent nutraceutical quality of fruits as well as yield attributes.

A Case of Human Resettlement for Nature ConservationA Case of Human Resettlement for Nature Conservation

Автор: Lindy C. Charlery

All over the developing world people are being displaced for various reasons, including development projects, threats from natural disasters and nature conservation. In the past, decision making in resettlement programs were strictly "top down", with the local population having no say in shaping the resulting outcomes. Concerns stemming from the ills of such practice have led to calls for a shift, to a more participatory process for carrying out resettlement programs. Examples of such a process are few and sparsely documented. This study is an in depth description and evaluation of the attempts made to carry out such a process in Nepal. The guiding belief is that we can learn from such examples, and help improve policies and practices for future resettlement programs.

A comparative study of impact of KVKs in U.PA comparative study of impact of KVKs in U.P

Автор: Narendra Prasad

Induction of the appropriate technology holds key to the rapid development and transformation of the rural society in a sustainable manner. The transfer of technology among the rural masses is the challenging task facing the country. Training of farmers and in-service extension functionaries is a critical input for the rapid transfer of agricultural technology. This aspect remained neglected in the past and continues as a weak link in the agricultural production system even now. The training institutions which existed were by and large theoretically oriented and hence they could not make as much dent on production and generating income in the farming community as was expected. Realizing this crucial gap, the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) evolved Krishi Vigyan Kendra (KVK) as an innovative institution for vocational training in agriculture and allied subjects. The KVKs are the grass-root level technology transfer and vocational training institutions designed for...

A Comparison of Growth Regulators on Yield in GreengramA Comparison of Growth Regulators on Yield in Greengram

Автор: Rajesh Kunta,S. Narender Reddy and B. Gopal Singh

Pulses are cheap source of vegetable protein (20-25%). Greengram occupies a prominent place by virtue of its high nutritive value short growth period and its ability to suit any cropping systems. During the process of evolution and adaptation, pulse crops acquired primitive characters like long duration, indeterminate and compact growth, excessive flowering, flower drop, shattering, non-synchronous maturity, etc., for their survival rather than high yield. Further their lower dry matter partitioning is one of the causes for lower harvest index. The present investigation was undertaken to assess different physiological and biochemical characters with application of different growth promoting and retarding compounds on growth, dry matter production and yield in greengram. The plant growth regulators are known to influence growth attributes right from seed germination to senescence either by reducing the plant height or by enhancing the growth, flowering, pod and seed development and...

A Country-Specific IMF/WB SAP Model for the Agricultural SectorA Country-Specific IMF/WB SAP Model for the Agricultural Sector

Автор: Douglas Ncube

Since 1980 an increasing number of Sub Sahara African (SSA) countries had adopted stabilizatioin and structural adjustment programmes with the support of the IMF and WB. But overtime increasing concerns started to be expressed, not only with the respect to the relevance of these programmes to SSA's long term development objectives but also with respect to their social, economic and financial impact. Although the adjustment programmes aim at restoring growth, generally through the achievement of fiscal and external balances and the free play of market forces, these objectives cannot be achieved without addressing the fundamental structural bottlenecks of SSA economies. Three scenarios have emerged (a) the SSA governments were not diligent and committed enough to make structural adjustment programmes worthwhile (b) the standard IMF/WB model was not appropriate and (c) if (a) and (b) were not addressed and rectified SSA will soon have an increase in poverty and tremendous food shortages.

The paper focuses on the impact of the change in food supply along with socio-economic factors, specifically access, time, and cost, and how these factors have affected the American obesity epidemic. This was assessed in part through a case study of the Smith Hill area of Providence, Rhode Island, a food desert that is comprised mainly of Americans near the poverty line, and the Wellspring La Jolla camp—a camp for overweight children from upper-middle class families. The study of this food desert is juxtaposed to a community of greater affluence. The availability of resources for both food and physical activity are considered. The poor rely on federally implemented physical activity programs to lose weight whereas the affluent are able to invest in a wellness program to lose weight. The obesity epidemic is examined, as it affects both the poor...

Based on this background, the following four marketing organizations were considered for the study Co-operative marketing systems (HOPCOMS), retailers marketing systems (Subiksha and My Greens) and direct marketing systems (Rythu Bazaar). The study was conducted in selected villages of Bangalore rural and urban districts of Karnataka state. A sample of 40 farmer producers and 40 consumers were randomly selected and they were personally interviewed with the help of schedule developed for the study. Among the selected four marketing organizations the farmers preferred Subiksha with the highest score of 138 and it stands first, followed by HOPCOMS (123), Rythu Bazaar (93), and My Greens (69) which stands second, third and fourth rank, respectively. Majority of the consumers preferred...

A Technique of Zone Delineation Using Apparent Electrical ConductivityA Technique of Zone Delineation Using Apparent Electrical Conductivity

Автор: Aimrun Wayayok and Mohd Amin Mohd Soom

Spatial variability and temporal variability of soil chemical and physical properties within a field is unavoidable. Meanwhile, laboratory soil test is usually time consuming and laborious. To satisfy the concept of precision farming, rapid and intensive soil sampling is necessary for describing the uncertainty within a field. Apparent or bulk soil electrical conductivity (ECa) technique for describing soil spatial variability is widely used. ECa includes soil salinity and soil texture. Soil texture has high correlation with soil cation exchange capacity (CEC) hence, soil nutrient contents.The study showed that most of the soil properties and ECa changed from one season to other seasons, except total N. Many soil properties had the same mean values for seasons 1 and 3 such as K, moisture content, silt and coarse sand. Spatial variability of shallow and deep ECa had the same pattern for different seasons even though the mean values were different. Deep ECa showed the pattern of former...

A useful tactic of banana virus eradication from infected plantA useful tactic of banana virus eradication from infected plant

Автор: Md. Humayun Kabir Shiragi and Md. Abdullahil Baque

The standardization of meristem culture for banana virus eradication from infected plant (Amritasagar and Sabri) is now an efficient practice for rapid clonal propagation. Generally, four experiments were conducted for shoot proliferation & virus free plantlet regeneration confirmed by ELISA test could play an important role. Several factors like explants, media composition, environment, ELISA test, PGR,s concentrations & combinations were included that. Usually, cytokinin helps in shoot proliferation & auxins on in vitro root formation. However,cytokinin & auxins requirement depends on variety & culture conditions. Moreover,an exponential shoot number increment & very short(2-6weeks)shoot proliferation cycle can be continued irrespective of the season. But conventionally, no uniform & no virus free 5-10 suckers can be obtained per plant annually. As regards yield performance,tissue cultured plants have been reported to produce 39%higher yield than sword suckers. Finally, virus...

The accounting of our rural households is becoming more and more prevalent and common. In the new system of registration of agricultural households, where the commercial ones have a completely different treatment, this question becomes even more popular. Mission and purpose of accounting of agricultural enterprises is to collect data on the state and behavior of all the elements of the agricultural business system, and that turns them into information. Business events accounted for enterprises engaged in agricultural activities is much more specific compared to classic industrial, service and other companies, which is partly the result of specific agricultural production in general, but also the character of the individual, primarily property position (balance sheet assets) in agricultural companies that require specific accounting treatment. The agricultural sector is a key sector in the economic development of many countries, particularly less developed countries and countries in...

Acidification of carrot juice by blending with different fruit juicesAcidification of carrot juice by blending with different fruit juices

Автор: Vijay Yadav Tokala

The carrot has been called the “poor man’s ginseng” as it contains more than 490 phyto-chemicals (plant or fruit derived chemical compounds). It is an excellent nutritive food as it is rich source of ?- and ?- Carotene.In the advent of advances made in food nutrition the demand for ? – carotene has been increasing steadily because of its possible role in the treatment of human diseases such as cancer, as it has property of free radical quencher and antioxidant.Preservation of carrot juice is difficult due to its low acidity which provide ideal environment for the growth of many spoilage and spore forming bacteria. Acidification of carrot juice could be achieved by either fermentation or adding citric acid. Alternatively, blending carrot juice with acidic fruit juice such as apple juice, aonla juice etc. could produce a blend with a lower pH that can act as a natural barrier against most microorganisms.No work has been done in standardisation of carrot – fruit juices (aonla,...

In India sugar industry is the second largest agro-based industry next only to textiles. Sugarcane yield is markedly influenced by soil fertility, climate, variety, moisture stress, weeds, insect pests and diseases. The estimated loss from insect pests account to nearly 20 per cent in cane yield. The recent havoc of previous decade Sugarcane Woolly Aphid (SWA), Ceratovacuna lanigera Zehntner has been a new addition to the key pests of sugarcane. Due to monoculture, availability of food round the year, soft cane and high sugar varieties and favourable climatic conditions some of the minor pests have attained the status of major pests. In sugarcane ecosystem, though synthetic insecticides are effective do not find place due to difficulty in spraying, operational hazards, improper coverage of crop canopy, high costs and destruction of natural enemies treasure.

Adaptation to Climate Change Shocks by Farmers in AfricaAdaptation to Climate Change Shocks by Farmers in Africa

Автор: Silas Ochieng Otieno

Changing climate and weather patterns are predicted to have severe negative impacts on food production, food security and natural resources. Without appropriate responses, climate change is likely to constrain economic development and poverty reduction efforts and exacerbate already pressing difficulties (Bamwerinde, et al, 2006).Countries with economies rooted in climate sensitive sectors like agriculture, fisheries and forestry are expected to be hit hardest. Climate change is both a global environment and a local development issue, as it could jeopardize the livelihoods of millions, particularly where its impacts are compounded by other factors or where existing poverty and hunger make it particularly difficult to cope with its impacts (Deressa, 2006).

Adoption and Dis-adoption Dynamics of System of Rice IntensificationAdoption and Dis-adoption Dynamics of System of Rice Intensification

Автор: A.R. Durga and Suresh Kumar D

Rice cultivation faces challenges across the world and India is no exception. With the increasing cost of cultivation of paddy coupled with labour scarcity, sustaining the interest of farmers in rice cultivation has become a challenge. Thus, there is an urgent need to produce more output with a drop of water owing to water scarcity. This study has envisaged to examine the issues in adoption and dis-adoption and its impact on resource use, yield and efficiency of SRI farmers in Palakkad district of Kerala, India. The present study revealed that SRI can be further adopted and practiced by farmers if there is an improvement in SRI extension service delivery. The main problem associated with discontinuance behaviour of farmers was shortage of skilled labour. Training and education to farmers on SRI techniques should be enhanced so that skilled labour is available for various operations and farmers can adopt SRI technologies to their own resource endowments and constraints to improve their...
