Crop domestication, in general, has reduced genetic diversity in cultivated gene pool of chickpea (Cicer arietinum) as compared with wild species (C. reticulatum, C. bijugum). To explore impact of domestication on symbiosis, 10 accessions of chickpeas, including 4 accessions of C. arietinum, and 3 accessions of each of C. reticulatum and C. bijugum species,(More)
Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) is considered a salt sensitive species, but some genetic variation for salinity tolerance exists. The present study was initiated to determine the degree of salt tolerance among chickpea genotypes, and the relationship between salt tolerance and ion accumulation in leaves and reproductive tissues. Three experiments were(More)
Early maturing short duration cold-tolerant chickpea cultivars are being introduced to avoid yield loss from spell faced by crops. However, the biochemical basis of the low temperature stress tolerance is not known. In the present study carbon and nitrogen metabolizing enzymes in nodules along with physiological indices were measured in early maturing short(More)
Pearl millet germplasm lines, viz., 17 cytoplasmic male sterile lines and 83 inbred lines, were evaluated for 15 different morpho-physiological traits. The correlation analysis revealed strong positive association of days to 50% flowering and maturity (0.66, 0.15) with grain yield. Significant positive association between water-soluble carbohydrates (WSC)(More)
Six genotypes and thirty-eight advance breeding lines of lentil (Lens culinaris Medik.) were evaluated for carbohydrate composition, soluble proteins, mineral content and antinutritional traits such as phenolic compounds, tannins, trypsin inhibitors, saponins and phytic acid. The average content of total sugars, starch and proteins was found to be 47.18,(More)
Helicoverpa armigera is the most devastating pest of important crops causing heavy yield losses. The larval midgut harbours proteases and their inhibition starves insects to death or may disrupt their normal metabolism. So there is need to characterize gut protease and its potential inhibitors. A serine protease (trypsin like) from H. armigera gut was(More)
Present study was undertaken with three categories of seed size of Kabuli chickpea genotypes. Leaf characteristics, viz., number of leaves, leaf area, leaf area index, and specific leaf weight were high in large-seeded category genotypes than other two seed size category genotypes during reproductive phase of plant growth and development. Photosynthetic(More)
Research to date looking at marketing capabilities is limited to varied types of capabilities in general. The purpose of the study is to comprehend marketing capabilities from operational perspective and to explore its role in enhancing competitive advantage and business performance. The paper draws upon the extant literature to present a series of research(More)
Antioxidative enzymes, non enzymic antioxidants and signaling molecules were compared in leaves and podwall of ten chickpea genotypes namely ICC 506, ICCV 10, ICC 10393, 5282, RSG 963, GL 25016, GL 26054, ICCL 86111, ICC 3137 and L 550 after Helicoverpa armigera infestation. Two chickpea genotypes (ICC 3137 and L 550) were found to be susceptible and rest(More)
