The present study was conducted to evaluate the genetic divergence among thirty-eight elite pearl millet genotypes using Mahalanobis D2 statistics for thirteen different agronomic, morphological and thermotolerance traits, under rain-fed condition. Analysis of variance indicated considerable diversity among genotypes showing significant variability for all(More)
Global efforts to reduce the emissions require proper monitoring and understanding of the carbon inputs and outputs by the terrestrial ecosystems i.e. vegetation and soil. Photosynthesis and net primary productivity can be used as indicators of carbon exchange and their estimate can be made through traditional approaches as well as other approaches e.g.(More)
Pusa Basmati 1121 (PB1121), an elite Basmati rice cultivar is vulnerable to salinity at seedling stage. A study was undertaken to impart seedling-stage salt tolerance into PB1121 by transferring a quantitative trait locus (QTL), Saltol, using FL478 as donor, through marker assisted backcrossing. Sequence tagged microsatellite site (STMS) marker RM 3412,(More)
Results of an investigation conducted to study the effect of fibre hybridization on the strength characteristics such as compressive strength, split tensile strength, and water permeability of steel fibre reinforced concrete (SFRC) are presented. Steel fibres of different lengths, that is, 12.5 mm, 25 mm, and 50 mm, having constant diameter of 0.6 mm, were(More)
Wireless sensor networks consist of battery driven devices that contain limited energy resources. Due to the placement of sensor nodes in a hostile environment it is very difficult to recharge the batteries of nodes .So limited energy resource affects the lifetime of the network. Number of protocols has been proposed to reduce the dissipation of energy.(More)
Influence of elevated CO2 (570 ± 25 ppm) and elevated temperature (≃3 °C higher than ambient) on rice (Oryza sativa L.) and brown planthopper (BPH), Nilaparvata lugens (Stal.) was studied in open top chambers during rainy season of 2013. Elevated CO2 and temperature exhibited positive effect on BPH multiplication thus enhancing its population (55.2 ± 5.7(More)
