Assessment of ethylene diurea-induced protection in plants against ozone phytotoxicity.
Urbanization, industrialization and unsustainable utilization of natural resources have made tropospheric ozone (03) one of the world's most significant air pollutants. Past studies reveal that 0 3Expand
Assessment of growth and yield losses in two Zea mays L. cultivars (quality protein maize and nonquality protein maize) under projected levels of ozone
Rapid industrialization and economic developments have increased the tropospheric ozone (O3) budget since preindustrial times, and presently, it is supposed to be a major threat to crop productivity.Expand
Investigating the response of tropical maize (Zea mays L.) cultivars against elevated levels of O3 at two developmental stages
Tropospheric ozone (O3) concentrations are rising in Indo-Gangetic plains of India, causing potential threat to agricultural productivity. Maize (Zea mays L.) is the third most important staple cropExpand
Variability in defence mechanism operating in three wheat cultivars having different levels of sensitivity against elevated ozone
Abstract Wheat cultivars namely HD 2987 [ozone (O3) sensitive], PBW 502 (intermediately sensitive to O3) and Kharchiya 65 (O3 tolerant) were chosen on the basis of earlier study to investigate theExpand
Assessment of ozone toxicity among 14 Indian wheat cultivars under field conditions: growth and productivity
Tropospheric ozone (O3) is a well-known threat to global agricultural production. Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) is the second most important staple crop in India, although little is known aboutExpand
Cultivar specific variations in antioxidative defense system, genome and proteome of two tropical rice cultivars against ambient and elevated ozone.
For the past few decades continuous increase in the levels of tropospheric ozone (O3) concentrations is posing to be a threat for agricultural productivity. Two high yielding tropical rice cultivarsExpand
Effect of elevated O3 on rhizospheric enzymatic activities of ozone sensitive and tolerant wheat cultivars
ABSTRACT Tropospheric ozone (O3) is considered harmful to agriculture production and soil community. Wheat cultivars HD 2987 (O3 sensitive) and Kharchiya 65 (O3 tolerant) were grown under ambient andExpand

Ozone (O3) in troposphere is the most critical secondary air pollutant, and being phytotoxic causes substantial losses to agricultural productivity. Its increasing concentration in India particularlyExpand
Responses of Zea mays L. cultivars ‘Buland’ and ‘Prakash’ to an antiozonant ethylene diurea grown under ambient and elevated levels of ozone
Increase in surface level of ozone (O3) in last 30 years is one of the major problems for global agriculture. Field experiment was conducted using open top chambers on two Indian maize cultivarsExpand
Inhibitive effect of chloroquine towards corrosion of mild steel in hydrochloric acid solution
Corrosion inhibition of mild steel (MS) by chloroquine (CQ) in 1 M HCl was investigated using weight loss, polarization, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) and quantum chemical techniques.Expand
