Draft genome sequence of chickpea (Cicer arietinum) provides a resource for trait improvement
TLDR
This work reports the ∼738-Mb draft whole genome shotgun sequence of CDC Frontier, a kabuli chickpea variety, which contains an estimated 28,269 genes, and identifies targets of both breeding-associated genetic sweeps and breeding- associated balancing selection.
Effect of feeding hydroponics maize fodder on digestibility of nutrients and milk production in lactating cows
TLDR
It can be concluded that feeding of HMF to lactating cows increased the digestibility of nutrients and milk production leading to increase in net profit.
Hydroponics as an advanced technique for vegetable production: An overview
Currently hydroponic cultivation is gaining popularity all over the world because of efficient resources management and quality food production. Soil based agriculture is now facing various
Production and Utilisation of Hydroponics Fodder
TLDR
In situations, where conventional green fodder cannot be grown successfully, hydroponics fodder can be produced by the farmers for feeding their dairy animals using low cost devices.
Cytoplasmic male sterility (CMS) in hybrid breeding in field crops
TLDR
The status of diverse sterility-inducing cytoplasms and associated Rf factors reported across different field crops are reviewed along with exploring opportunities for integrating modern omics tools with CMS-based hybrid breeding.
Comparative study of selenium and selenium nanoparticles with reference to acute toxicity, biochemical attributes, and histopathological response in fish
TLDR
It is suggested that essential trace element in both forms at higher concentration in acute exposure of Se and Se-NPs led to pronounced deleterious alteration on histopathology and cellular and metabolic activities of P. hypophthalmus.
Nutrient Changes with the Growth of Hydroponics Fodder Maize
TLDR
It can be concluded that hydroponics fodder maize was more nutritious than the conventional fodder maize in terms of available organic matter, crude protein, ether extract and nitrogen free extract content.
Analysis of existing dairy farming in Goa
TLDR
There is need of awareness programmes on scientific feeding practices and interventions are needed in the traditional feeding practices of the dairy animals to make the dairy farming a more profitable venture.
Protective effect of sodium selenite and zinc sulfate on intensive swimming-induced testicular gamatogenic and steroidogenic disorders in mature male rats.
TLDR
It can be concluded that intensive-swimming-induced oxidative stress causes dysfunctions in the male reproductive system, which can be protected by the coadministration of sodium selenite and zinc sulfate.
Effect of heat treatment on the functional properties of linseed meal
N solubility, fat and water absorption capacity, bulk density, foam capacity and stability, and emulsification capacity of raw linseed meal (LM) and water-boiled linseed meal (WB) were determined and
