In several sugarcane-growing areas of India, sugarcane plants showing typical symptoms of sugarcane grassy shoot (SCGS) disease as well as non-symptomatic sugarcane plants and sugarcane with non-specific yellowing and stunting symptoms were examined for phytoplasmal infections by means of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) technology, using primers directed to(More)
In the present study we recovered endophytic root-nodule bacteria from chickpea (Cicer arietinumi L.) and mothbean (Vigna aconitifolia L.). Phenotypic and genotypic characterization of isolates was performed by employing biochemical and genetic approaches. Sequencing data showed that most isolates belonged to genus, Pseudomonas spp. being a dominant(More)
AIM The study was conducted to know the prevalence of gastrointestinal parasites of captive wild animals at Bir Moti Bagh Mini Zoo (Deer Park), Patiala, Punjab. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 31 fecal samples from eight species of captive animals including Civet cat (Viverra zibetha), Porcupine (Hystrix indica), Nilgai (Boselaphus tragocamelus), Spotted(More)
The vapour action of pure monoterpenoids and volatile oils has been screened for their antifungal activity against four sugarcane pathogenic fungi using inverted petriplate method. Among tested monoterpenoids, menthol caused complete mycelial inhibition againstCurvularia pallescens at 2000 ppm, geraniol againstColletotrichum falcatum at 3000 ppm, linalool(More)
Nested polymerase chain reaction was conducted to identify the phytoplasma associated with grassy shoot disease (GSD) of sugarcane in the Gorakhpur district of India. A 1.25 kbp DNA fragment encoding the phytoplasma 16S rKNA gene was consistently amplified by nested PCR. The results showed that samples of diseased plants from two sugarcane varieties gave(More)
Incidence of eye leaf spot disease caused byHelminthosporium tetramera in different sugarcane varieties was recorded in Tarai belt of Uttar Pradesh during 1998–99 and 1999–2000 crop seasons in plant as well as ratoon crop. The disease incidence was more severe in plants (27.65%, 32.14%) followed by ratoons (28.40%, 44.46%) of cultivar CoS 767 in both crop(More)
Plant growth promotory Pseudomonas strains were isolated from root nodules of five plant species, viz., Trifolium pretense, Cicer arietinum, Amaranthus polygamus, Vigna mungo, and Trigonella foenum; that plants were denizen of Shekhawati region of Rajasthan. A total of 8 bacterial isolates were evaluated for growth promotion using PGP properties. Partial(More)
