Nearly half of the cultivated sugarcane is ratooned, but most often dry matter accumulation in ratoon crops is lesser than plant crops. The aim of present work was to assess ratooning induced rhizospheric changes in plant and ratoon crop for their impact on nutrient acquisition and growth. Significant changes occurred in pH, soil enzymatic activities and(More)
Sugarcane is one of the most efficient quantum converters, endowed with vast tillering, ratooning and biomass potential. Vast tillering potential, innumerable root primordia, two types of roots and emergence of leaves constitute a Compensatory Physiologic Continuum which imparts this plant a unique ability to tide over abiotic stress conditions, gaps in the(More)

This policy brief is intended to inform educational language policies and support better quality of educational outcomes, especially in increased literacy rates. It aims to highlight the increasing body of evidence which supports the importance of mother-tongue learning in the early years of education. It takes the latest evidence from around the world, as(More)
Salinity in sugarcane decreases sucrose contents and reduces the efficiency of sucrose recovery in sugar mills. As growth, development and sucrose accumulation are regulated by phosphorus accumulation and modulation of its inorganic and organic fractions during growth cycle, the present experiment was taken up to evaluate the effect of salinity with seven(More)
Identification of the precise nature and attributes of the time series of climatological data is very important and is usually the first step for water resources planning and management. Such exercise is very important for hydro-climatic extremes. In many instances, a climatic time series is generally not statistically independent but is comprised of(More)
