PRODUCTION OF ALPHA AMYLASE FROM A RANDOMLY INDUCED MUTANT STRAIN OF BACILLUS AMYLOLIQUEFACIENS AND ITS APPLICATION AS A DESIZER IN TEXTILE INDUSTRY
The production of alpha amylase was found to be maximal when the 60% volume, 2.0 vvm air supply and 400 rpm agitation rate was maintained during the fermentation period, and the incubation temperature and size of inoculum were optimized.
Determination of minimum inhibitory concentrations of fungicides against fungus Fusarium mangiferae.
Fungus proved highly sensitive to type-I fungicides (Benlate 50 WP, Carbendazim, Topsin-M 70 WP and Copper oxychloride 50 WP) with 100% suppression at tested MICs, to devise suitable control strategy to curb malformation in mango orchards.
ASSOCIATION OF LASIODIPLODIA THEOBROMAE WITH DIFFERENT DECLINE DISORDERS IN MANGO (MANGIFERA INDICA L.)
The isolates of the fungus Lasiodiplodia theobromae are characterized, their virulence is tested, different fungicides are evaluated and management strategies for the control of mango decline in the Punjab province of Pakistan are devised.

Hydrothermal remobilisation around a deformed and remobilised komatiite-hosted Ni-Cu-(PGE) deposit, Sarah’s Find, Agnew Wiluna greenstone belt, Yilgarn Craton, Western Australia
The Sarah’s Find nickel deposit, located 4.5 km north of the Mount Keith nickel mine, Western Australia, was chosen as a case study to investigate the nature and three-dimensional geometry of a…
RAPD analysis of Fusarium Isolates Causing “Mango Malformation” Disease in Pakistan
RAPD proved a reproducible and tractable means of differentiating Fusarium isolates, suggesting that some infections originate not from adjacent plants within an orchard but from geographically distant areas, and that improved plant hygiene could significantly curb MM infection and spread.
Integrated weed management and its effect on the seed cotton yield in cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) crop.
The study concluded that integrated weed management in cotton crop can significantly reduced the weed infestation and improve the seed cotton yield.
Potential of Fusarium mangiferae as an etiological agent of mango malformation.
The present studies reveal the infectivity and dominant association of F. mangiferae with malformed tissues of diverse origins and shows the need to confirm the specific species in the mango orchards of Pakistan.

The present studies explored the sites hosting the causal fungus in mango and provide convincing evidence that F. mangiferae is responsible for turning healthy tissues into the malformed condition, suggesting that inoculum specific management strategies are needed in future to curb malformation disease in mango orchards.
