Malpura sheep is one of the well adapted and heavy breeds of sheep in semi-arid region of India, which is primarily reared for mutton production. Present study was carried out to evaluate the reproductive parameters and selective value and also to estimate (co)variance component for these traits in the Malpura sheep on the data spread over 35 years(More)
Impact of selection and other environmental determinants on the additive genetic variance was studied for traits under selection, viz. live weight at 6 month (6WT) and first greasy fleece weight (GFW). Data on 3067 Bharat Merino sheep for 19 years (1988–2006) were divided in four periods P1 (1988–1992), P2 (1993–1997), P3 (1998–2002) and P4 (2003–2006).(More)
Laser induced fluorescence spectroscopy in the ultraviolet regime has been used for the detection of biochemical through a fiber coupled CCD detector from a distance of 2 m. The effect of concentration and laser excitation energy on the fluorescence spectra of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NADH) has been investigated. The signature fluorescence peak of(More)

The international winter wheat improvement program (IWWIP), an alliance between Turkey–CIMMYT–ICARDA, has distributed improved germplasm to different National Agricultural Research Systems (NARS) partners through international nurseries and yield trials for the last 25 years. This study was carried out in order to determine the rate of breeding progress for(More)
The endangered Tor putitora is a commercially important freshwater cyprinid distributed widely in Himalayan foothills of India and adjacent countries. Despite its extensive distribution, the stock structure of the species is not known. The present study investigates intraspecific variations in wild and captive populations of this species using multivariate(More)
Organic agriculture is gaining a gradual momentum across the world for improving nutritional quality of food, restoring soil health, generating rural economy, and creating better environmental conditions. Organic agriculture can foster sustainability in subhumid tropical soils low in organic carbon. Nutrient use efficiency of basal soil application of(More)
High grain yield and resistance to stripe (yellow) rust are the most important traits for successful adoption of winter wheat varieties in Central and West Asia. This study was conducted to determine the stripe rust response and agronomic performance of a set of breeding lines recently developed by the International Winter Wheat Improvement Program (IWWIP).(More)
