Mamejvo (Enicostemma axillare Raynal) is a perennial herb with diversified health benefits. It was found to be affected by a witches’ broom disease under the field conditions at Anand, Gujarat, India. Affected plants were 53.33% reduced in height due to shortened internodes, leading to typical witches’ broom symptoms. Flower size was reduced significantly(More)
Insider threat is one of the most critical security threats for any Industry, even it is the most eldest strategy to fall an empire down, very common in diplomacy according to the human history. In the cloud computing ecosystem there are several problems that is harder than the normal (not could) scenarios. If the insider threats are the most dangerous(More)
Guggal (Commiphora wightii (Arnott) Bhandari comb. nov.) is a small tree which is tapped for medicinally important oleo–gum–resin. Naturally infected plant oozes oleo–gum–resin from its trunk and primary branches. However, in either case, the plant dies slowly after oozing. A bacterium was established to be responsible for these phenomena. Four isolates of(More)
Virtualization is the key underlying technology enabling cloud providers to host services for a large number of customers. Live migration is an essential feature of virtualization that allows transfer of virtual machines from one physical server to another. Live migration facilitates workload balancing, fault tolerance, online system maintenance,(More)
Keywords: Hybrid system Renewable energy system Ageing Bees algorithm PV system Wind turbine A new approach called ageing approach is presented in this paper while modeling and evaluation of the cost of the hybrid renewable energy system. The ageing effect of the system components directly affects the system performance which in turn affects the net present(More)
Guggal, a threatened species that is endemic to western India, is tapped to extract medicinally important oleo-gum-resin (guggul). However, the plant dies after gum exudation. The indigenous tapping techniques used by local people were examined in Gujarat, India to discover the scientific basis behind these techniques: selection of gum inducer, season of(More)
Macrophomina phaseolina (Tassi) Goid. is the most important pathogen of jute and primarily causes seedling blight, leaf spot and stem rot. The pathogen was detected from field samples by a simple method of direct PCR (dPCR) which obviates the steps of DNA extraction. The leaf bits were treated with a lysis buffer at 65°C for 25 min, whereas the stem pieces(More)
Hog–plum is a tree species with edible fruits. The plant is naturally distributed in the tropical areas of the Indian subcontinent. Our effort to introduce it in the semi–arid conditions of western India failed as the plants developed severe shot–hole type leaf spot symptoms. Association of a fungus with the disease was detected and its pathogenicity was(More)
