Chickpea seeds of Pusa 1053 (Mediterranean) and Pusa 256 (native) were magnetoprimed with 100 mT static magnetic field for 1 h to evaluate the effect of magnetopriming on germination of seeds under saline conditions. Enhanced rate of germination and seedling growth parameters (root and shoot length, and vigour indices) under different salinity levels(More)
A mobile ad hoc network (MANET) is a collection of mobile nodes communicating in an infrastructure-less environment without the aid of a central administrating authority. Such networks entail greater dependency on synergy amongst the nodes to execute fundamental network operations. The scarcity of resources makes it economically logical for nodes to(More)
The impact of rising atmospheric CO2 on crop productivity and quality is very important for global food and nutritional security under the changing climatic scenario. A study was conducted to investigate the effect of elevated CO2 on seed oil quality and yield in a sunflower hybrid DRSH 1 and variety DRSF 113, raised inside open top chambers and exposed to(More)
Mustard (Brassica juncea) var. Pusa Jaikisan was grown in a pot experiment in soil supplemented with different concentrations of nickel and chromium (50 and 100 mg kg−1 soil), lead (100 and 200 mg kg−1 soil), cadmium (5 and 10 mg kg−1 soil) and mercury (25 and 50 mg kg−1 soil) as a leafy vegetable. The study revealed that as the contamination level(More)
Seeds of wheat genotypes, HD 2967 (salt sensitive) and Kharchia 65 (salt tolerant) were magneto-primed with 50 mT (2 h) static magnetic field and subjected to salinity stress (150 mM NaCl) from seedling stage to maturity. Magneto-priming caused significant increase in height, leaf area and dry weight of the plants of both the genotypes under non saline and(More)
Seed priming with magnetic field was used to improve germination, vigour and yield in cherry tomato seeds. Cherry tomato seeds were magneto-primed with various doses of static magnetic field (SMF) in the range of 50–150 milliTesla (mT) for duration of 30 min and 1 h. SMF dose of 100 mT for 30 min gave maximum increase in germination characteristics and was(More)

A field study was conducted to analyze the growth dynamics and temperature sensitivity of late planted chickpea following three staggered sowings viz. late October (S1), late November (S2) and mid December (S3) with selected promising genotypes. Late sown chickpea crops (S2 and S3) experienced ~13.4 °C average daily mean temperature during vegetative stage(More)
