High temperature (HT) stress is a major environmental stress that limits plant growth, metabolism, and productivity worldwide. Plant growth and development involve numerous biochemical reactions that are sensitive to temperature. Plant responses to HT vary with the degree and duration of HT and the plant type. HT is now a major concern for crop production(More)
Description: This book incorporates fast-moving research themes based on agricultural crop improvement and ongoing climate change in the present scenario. As time is going now, natural and cultivated habitats of crop plant are continuously disturbed; as a result, crop productivity and crop biology are affected continuously by climate change patterns like(More)
A heterogeneous collection of rice genotypes which included seven salt-tolerant rice lines, one salt-sensitive improved line, one wild rice (Oryza rufipogon) and one salt-tolerant wild rice relative (Porteresia coarctata) was screened with ten salt-tolerance-linked simple sequence repeat markers, of which nine were from the Saltol QTL mapped on rice 1st(More)
Evaluation of eggplant (Solanum melongena) genotypes, including one control check and nine mutants for ten agronomical characters to assess the magnitude of variability and to pick up the heritable component of variation present in the agronomic traits, revealed significant differences among the genotypes for all the studied characters indicating the(More)
A total of ten rare indigenous rice landraces of West Bengal were screened for germination potential and seedling growth under varying concentrations of sodium chloride (NaCl) and polyethylene glycol (PEG) solutions as osmotic stress inducing agents. Among the studied rice landraces Kelas and Bhut Moori showed highest degree of tolerance to induced osmotic(More)
