Broccoli (Brassica oleracea L. var. italica) is an important, nutritionally rich vegetable crop, but severely affected by environmental stresses, pests and diseases which cause massive yield and quality losses. Genetic manipulation is becoming an important method for broccoli improvement. In the present study, a reproducible and highly efficient protocol(More)
Broccoli (Brassica oleracea var. italica) is an important nutritionally rich vegetable cole crop. Environmental stress, pests and diseases cause enormous yield losses because of a limited gene pool. Genetic manipulation is becoming an important method for broccoli improvement. The objective of the present study was to evaluate the potency of thidiazuron(More)
Biotechnology holds promise for genetic improvement of important vegetable crops. Broccoli (Brassica oleracea L. var. italica) is an important vegetable crop of the family Brassicaceae. However, various biotic and abiotic stresses cause enormous crop yield losses during commercial cultivation of broccoli. Establishment of a reliable, reproducible and(More)
This paper presents an application of Differential Evolution (DE) to determine optimal crop plan for command area of Pamba-Achankovil-Vaippar (PAV) link project, so as to maximize the net irrigation benefit. The mathematical model of the problem is linear in nature subject to various constraints due to availability of total land area, water, fertilizers,(More)
Recent RHIC data have suggested an interesting scenario where jets, after being formed in the very first instants of the nuclear collision, interact strongly and are absorbed by the hot and dense matter subsequently created. In this respect, electromagnetic signals constitute another class of penetrating radiation. We first propose the study of large mass(More)
It has been recently shown [2] that the values of J T and J L which appear in Eq.(2) and (5) are too large by a factor of 4, in the Ref. [1]. Correcting for this changes the Fig. 2 (see below). Moreover , now the emissions from the quark matter dominate only for p T < 1 GeV/c. The basic result of the paper, that the upper limit of the single-photon(More)
We examine P b + P b collisions at CERN SPS energy 158 A GeV, by employing the earlier developed and recently refined parton-cascade/cluster-hadronization model and its Monte Carlo implementation. This space-time model involves the dynamical interplay of perturbative QCD parton production and evolution, with non-perturbative parton-cluster formation and(More)
With the advent of molecular biotechnology, plant genetic engineering techniques have opened an avenue for the genetic improvement of important vegetable crops. Vegetable crop productivity and quality are seriously affected by various biotic and abiotic stresses which destabilize rural economies in many countries. Moreover, absence of proper post-harvest(More)
