Thermal Hardening: A New Seed Vigor Enhancement Tool in Rice
Abstract: In a laboratory study, indica and japonica rice (Oryza sativa L.) seeds were exposed to thermal hardening (heating followed by chilling followed by heating; chilling followed by heatingExpand
OPTIMIZATION OF HORMONAL PRIMING TECHNIQUES FOR ALLEVIATION OF SALINITY STRESS IN WHEAT (TRITICUM AESTIVUM L.)
TLDR
It is concluded that hormonal priming has reduced the severity of the effect of salinity but the amelioration was better due to 50 ppm SA and 50 ppm ascorbic acid treatments as these showed best results on seedling growth, fresh and dry weights under nonsaline and saline conditions. Expand
Improving the Drought Tolerance in Rice (Oryza sativa L.) by Exogenous Application of Salicylic Acid
TLDR
Drought tolerance in rice was well associated with the accumulation of compatible solutes, maintenance of tissue water potential and enhanced potency of antioxidant system, which improved the integrity of cellular membranes and facilitated the rice plant to sustain photosynthesis and general metabolism. Expand
Improving the performance of transplanted rice by seed priming
TLDR
Priming improved the initial seedling vigor and resulted in improved growth, yield and quality of transplanted fine rice while traditional soaking behaved similar to that of untreated control, and significant positive correlation was found between mean emergence time of nursery seedlings and Kernel yield, nursery seedling dry weight and kernel yield, fertile tillers and kernelield, and leaf area duration and kernel yields.

Effect of Priming and Growth Regulator Treatments on Emergence and Seedling Growth of Hybrid Maize (Zea mays L.)
TLDR
Higher electrical conductivity of seed leachates treated with PEG, control and press mud were recorded as compared to seeds treated with GA3, distilled water, gunny bag and compost. Expand
Effect of different levels of nitrogen on the growth and production of Cucumber
An experiment to see the effect of Nitrogen (N) levels (0 to 210 kg/ha) in combination with a basal dose of 120 kg DAP per hectare on the growth, yield and yield components of  Cucumber (CucumisExpand
CONTROL OF WHEAT LEAF GROWTH UNDER SALINE CONDITIONS II. WATER RELATIONS PARAMETERS
This experiment was carried out to investigate the possible mechanism involved in the turgor stability. For the purpose various water relations parameters were studied. The tissue osmotic pressureExpand
Physiological and biochemical aspects of pre-sowing seed treatments in fine rice (Oryza sativa L.)
TLDR
Performance was slightly better in seeds subjected to hardening for 24 h than the traditional soaking because of lower T50 and non-reducing sugars and higher reducing and total sugars and α-amylase activity, but in seed performance was impaired possibly because of KNO3 toxicity. Expand
Clostridium perfringens Type D Enterotoxaemia in the Chinkara Deer (Gazella bennettii)
TLDR
Post-mortem examinations of the affected animals revealed muscular and serosal haemorrhages, hydroperitoneum, hydrothorax, and hydropericardium, which confirmed the Chinkara deer were infected with Clostridium perfringens type D. Expand
Enhancing biological control of sugarcane shoot borer, Chilo infuscatellus (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae), through use of radiation to improve laboratory rearing and field augmentation of egg and larval
TLDR
The use of gamma radiation to improve the production and field performance of the egg parasitoid Trichogramma chilonis Ishii and to improve production of the gregarious larval endoparasitoid Cotesia flavipes Cameron was evaluated for biological control of the sugarcane shoot borer. Expand
