The present study was conducted to evaluate the effect of NaCl on growth and some key antioxidants in chickpea. Eight genotypes of chickpea were grown hydroponically for 15 days and then treated with different concentrations of salt [0 mM (T0), 25 mM (T1), 50 mM (T2), 75 mM (T3), and 100 mM (T4)]. Salinity showed marked changes in growth parameters (fresh(More)
BOD (Biochemical oxygen demand) is the pollution index of any water sample. One of the main factors influencing the estimation of BOD is the nature of microorganisms used as seeding material. In order to meet the variation in wastewater characteristics, one has to be specific in choosing the biological component that is the seeding material. The present(More)
Nitrogen (N) is essential for proper plant growth and its application has proven to be critical for agricultural produce. However, for unavoidable economic and environmental problems associated with excessive use of N-fertilizers, it is an urgent demand to manage application of fertilizers. Improving the N-use efficiency (NUE) of crop plants to sustain(More)
Seeds of Cassia angustifolia Vahl., treated with various concentrations (0, 0.1, 0.15, 0.2 and 0.25 %) of Mancozeb, a broad-spectrum contact fungicide, were sown in field conditions to study the effect of the treatments on lipid peroxidation, proline accumulation and modulation of antioxidant system of seedlings obtained. Significant increase over the(More)
