Selection and use of genetically diverse genotypes are key factors in any crop breeding program to develop cultivars with a broad genetic base. Molecular markers play a major role in selecting diverse genotypes. In the present study, a reference set representing a wide range of sorghum genetic diversity was screened with 40 EST-SSR markers to validate both(More)

Use of diverse germplasm is a key factor which allows high level of resolution due to extensive recombination in the history. Therefore, population used in association mapping should posses as many phenotypes as possible. One of the methods to obtain most of the phenotypes is to construct the core collection. The ICRISAT foxtail millet core collection(More)
Castor (Ricinus communis L.) is an industrially important oilseed crop and is the only source of an unusual fatty acid, ricinoleic acid in plant species. The castor oil and its products have numerous industrial uses including biofuel; hence, the demand for castor oil is ever increasing globally. Current productivity levels in castor are inadequate to meet(More)
Castor (Ricinus communis L.) is an important oilseed crop providing raw materials for many industries. Its cultivation is seriously affected by the wilt disease caused by Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. ricini. In India, no cultivar could be released for cultivation without wilt resistance. Breeding for wilt resistance is hampered due to the limitation on number(More)
Drip irrigation studies were conducted in aerobic rice during the dry season (July–October) of 2011 in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, India with three levels of lateral distances (0.6, 0.8 or 1.0 m) and two discharge rates, viz., 0.6 and 1.0 litre per hour (LPH) emitters. Among the lateral distances, 0.8 m lateral distance adjudged as optimum spacing for better(More)
