Karnal bunt of wheat: Etiology, breeding and integrated management
Abstract Karnal bunt (KB) of wheat caused by Tilletia indica Mitra (Nevossia indica Mundkur), was first reported in Karnal, India, in 1931 hence named as ‘Karnal bunt’. The disease mainly occurs inExpand
sRNA and epigenetic mediated abiotic stress tolerance in plants
Plant small RNAs are important regulators of gene expression involved in epigenetic processes under abiotic and biotic stresses. To minimize the stress influence, specific changes in gene expressionExpand
