Halting the Groundwater Decline in North-West India—Which Crop Technologies will be Winners?
Increasing the productivity of the rice–wheat (RW) system in north-west India is critical for the food security of India. However, yields are stagnating or declining, and the rate of groundwater use
Effect of tillage and herbicides on weeds and productivity of wheat under rice–wheat growing system
Considering the benefits of ZT in reducing the cost of cultivation and lowering the infestation of P. minor, this technology should be integrated with other weed control measures for economic and sustainable wheat production.
Herbicides for control of isoproturon-resistant Littleseed Canarygrass (Phalaris minor) in wheat
Post-emergence clodinafop, fenoxaprop, pinoxaden, and mesosulfuron+S were very effective in controlling isoproturon R P. minor and improving wheat yields and their rotational use at optimum dose and time with proper application technology should be integrated with other weed control tactics.
Evaluation of herbicides against Phalaris minor in wheat in north‐western Indian plains
Overall, sulfosulfuron was the most effective treatment with regard to weed control and crop yield, however, maize and sorghum grown in rotation after harvest of sulfOSulfuron-treated wheat plots showed 65-73% crop biomass inhibition.
Effect of tillage on termites, weed incidence and productivity of spring wheat in rice–wheat system of North Western Indian plains
Tillage practices in rice had no effect on wheat during both years but tillage in wheat significantly affected its yield with the highest recorded from rotary tillage.
Higher frequency of Yq microdeletions in sperm DNA as compared to DNA isolated from blood.
The frequency of Yq microdeletions is higher in germ cells as compared to blood, and is important to understand the genetic basis of infertility, to provide comprehensive counseling and most adapted therapeutics to the infertile couple.
Probiotics: Interaction with gut microbiome and antiobesity potential.
The antiobesity potential of probiotics is also gaining wide attention because of increasing evidence of the role of gut microbiota in energy homeostasis and fat accumulation.
Anti‐obesity effect of feeding probiotic dahi containing Lactobacillus casei NCDC 19 in high fat diet‐induced obese mice
Nowadays, studies about the anti-obesity potential of probiotics are of growing interest. Lactobacilli are one of the well-studied probiotics owing to their preventing effect on metabolic disorders.
Metabolic fingerprinting in breast cancer stages through 1H NMR spectroscopy‐based metabolomic analysis of plasma
Hydroxybutyrate, lysine, glutamate, glucose, lactate, and NAG levels were significantly altered with good biomarker potential in breast cancer and showed a good classifier for advanced stage breast cancer progression.
