Phenacoccus solenopsis Tinsley (Sternorrhyncha: Coccoidea: Pseudococcidae), an invasive mealybug damaging cotton in Pakistan and India, with a discussion on seasonal morphological variation
The species is rather variable, that this variability may be environmentally induced, and that the species currently causing widespread damage to cotton on the Indian subcontinent is referable to P. solenopsis.
Black cumin seeds as phytogenic product in broiler diets and its effects on performance, blood constituents, immunity and caecal microbial population
A study was conducted to evaluate the effect of 3 different levels (1.25, 2.5 or 5.0%) of black cumin seeds (BCS) on five hundred chicks. A basal diet was supplemented with either 0 (negative…

This review highlights the importance of the As-induced generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) as well as their damaging impacts on plants at biochemical, genetic, and molecular levels.
Host plants distribution and overwintering of cotton mealybug (Phenacoccus solenopsis; Hemiptera: Pseudococcidae).
The study found the host plant range and the over wintering of the pest in agroecological conditions Pakistan during surveys from 2005 to 2009, and can be helpful in management of this pest.
Nutrient uptake, growth and yield of wheat (Triticum aestivum) as affected by zinc application rates.
Combined Zn and NPK application significantly improved growth and yield parameters of wheat and increased its total uptake by wheat crop and also resulted in a built-up of Zn in the upper 15 cm layer to be available for next crop.
Effects of organic and inorganic fertilizers on mungbean(vigna radiata (l.)) yield under arid climate
Effects of organic and inorganic fertilizers on mungbean ( Vigna radiata . (L.)) yield under arid climate were studied at adaptive research farm Karor and at farmer's field during two kharif seasons…
Molecular Diagnosis of COVID-19: Challenges and Research Needs
Critical research needs are discussed, such as improvements in RT-PCR, development of alternative nucleic acid amplification techniques, incorporating CRISPR technology for point-of-care applications, validation of POC tests, and sequencing of viral RNA and its mutations.
IMPACT OF PLANTING METHODS ON WHEAT GRAIN YIELD AND YIELD CONTRIBUTING PARAMETERS
It may be concluded that broadcast method is suitable for wheat sowing in sandy loam soils of arid area and drill-planting techniques with row spacing 15 cm and 30 cm, were inferior to broadcast method.
Heavy Metal Stress and Crop Productivity
Heavy metal contamination of the environment through anthropogenic activities and/or natural processes is a widespread and serious problem. Heavy metals occur in various forms in soil, which differ…
