Hydroponic experiment was conducted to investigate the sole and combined effects of cadmium and salinity on growth and photosynthesis of Brassica napus (cultivar Abasin) and Brassica juncea (cultivar NIFA-Raya). Cadmium (as CdCl2; 3 and 6 μmol L) and NaCl (100 and 200 mM) were added either alone or in combination in Hoagland solution along with non-treated(More)
Eight parents of bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) were crossed in a full diallel fashion and their F1s were evaluated for combining ability for yield components at the experimental farm of Plant Breeding and Genetics Department, NWFP Agricultural University, Peshawar during 2001-03. The traits included number of fertile tillers plant, grain yield plant,(More)
The composition of the products of the sugar cane mainly jaggery or gur is very important in term of their food value, color and shelf life. The juice passes through a number of changes up to the end products. The unwanted change is the darkening of the colour. In this work attempts were made to improve the colour and the sucrose contents of the jaggery by(More)
An experiment comprising of 24 wheat genotypes was undertaken during 2011-12, at New Developmental Research Farm, The University of Agriculture Peshawar, to elucidate information on the nature and magnitude of genetic variability, index of transmissibility and assessing the level of genetic improvement of the quantitative characters. The experimental(More)
Knowledge of traits inheritance is a prerequisite for any plant breeding program. Wheat cultivars like Pirsabak-85, Khyber-87, Saleem-2000, Pirsabak-04, Pirsabak-05 and Shahkar-13 were crossed in 6 × 6 half diallel fashion during 201011 at the Cereal Crops Research Institute (CCRI), Pirsabak Nowshera, Pakistan. The F1 and F2 half diallel hybrids in(More)
Development of superior crop varieties is the prime objectives of all plant breeding programs. To determine genetic variability, heritability and genetic advance, 24 elite bread wheat lines were planted in randomized complete block design with three replications at the University of Agriculture, Peshawar under rainfed conditions. Data were recorded on days(More)
Phytic acid (Myo-inositol 1,2,3,4,5,6 hexa-kisphophate) is a storage form of phosphorus and can accumulate to the levels as high as 35% in the wheat kernel. Phytic acid acts as an inhibitor for macronutrients as well as micronutrients and located in the bran of wheat kernel. Due to its inhibitory role, a high concentration of phytic acid is undesirable as(More)
