Studies on soil quality of mangrove forests would be of immense use in minimizing soil degradation and in adopting strategies for soil management at degraded sites. Among the various parameters of soil quality, biological and biochemical soil properties are very sensitive to environmental stress and provide rapid and accurate estimates on changes in quality(More)
Phytochemicals including minerals, total phenolics, total flavonoids and antioxidant capacity were measured with ferric reducing antioxidant power and radical scavenging capacity (2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl or DPPH) in fruits of three wild/semi domesticated Momordica species (Momordica dioica, M. subangulata subsp. renigera and M. cochinchinensis) of(More)
Mycorrhizal spores were found to be closely associated with bacteria on their spore wall surface known as mycorrhiza associated bacteria (MAB) and its play a major role in the plant growth promotion by production of many known and unknown metabolites, nutrient solubilization and suppression of many soil borne pathogens in rhizosphere of crop plants. The(More)
Mangoes are native to India. They are grown extensively in all agro-ecological regions of South and Southeast Asia. At present, several varieties of mango are under cultivation whose suitability to different agro-ecological regions differs with their origin. The present study aimed to investigate the suitability of mangoes for colonization in low fertility(More)
Given inherent qualities like N-fixation, P-solublization and nutrient recycling pulses remain the most preferred option for diversification of cereal-based rotations. A long-term experiment was used to assess the effect of including pulses in rice–wheat rotation on soil–plant nutrient dynamics under inorganic and organic nutrient management. Results(More)
We report the 8.9 Mb draft genome sequence of phosphate-solubilizing bacterium Paraburkholderia tropica strain P-31, isolated from pomegranate (Punica granatum) rhizosphere. The draft genome sequence of Paraburkholderia tropica strain P-31 consists of 8,881,246 bp with a G+C content of 64.7%, 8,039 protein-coding genes, and 49 RNAs.
