Okra-leaf accessions of the upland cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.): genetic variability in agronomic and fibre traits.
Okra-leaf types of the upland cotton have the potential to be competitive to the normal-leaf types in yield and fibre quality, in addition to its potential resistance to insect pests and drought.… Expand
Combining ability analysis for yield and yield components in sunflower (Helianthus annus L.).
Genetic association between achene yield and fatty acid profile under lead toxicity in sunflower (Helianthus annuus L.).
Lead toxicity is now considered as serious environmental issue and gained attention by various researchers worldwide. Considerable increase in concentration of lead in upper layer of cultivated soil… Expand
Seed priming enhances canola (Brassica napus L.) yield by modulating biochemical and physiological properties under water deficit condition.
Canola (Brassica napus L.) is exposed to many environmental pressures that limit its development and yield. Hormonal seed priming is used to cope with adverse effects of stresses. Recent study was… Expand
Physio-biochemical responses and defining selection criteria for drought tolerance in Sorghum bicolor
Forty cytoplasmic male sterile (CMS) sorghum lines were evaluated for different physiological and biochemical traits under drought stress. Considerable genetic variability was found among all… Expand
