Antifungal activity of ajoene, a constituent of garlic (Allium sativum)
Ajoene, a compound derived from garlic, inhibited spore germination of some fungi which cause serious diseases in some important crop plants in India, and it is quite likely that the compound may be useful in controlling disease(s) under field conditions. Expand
Genetic Variability, Correlation Coefficient and Path Analysis of Seed and its Component Traits in Forage Maize (Zea mays L.)
An ideal plant type in forage maize for seed yield could be described as one which is characterized by more number of kernels per row, test weight and shank diameter, which might help in improving seed yield in foraging maize both directly and indirectly. Expand
Relationship between Field Levels and Light and Darkness on the Development of Phytophthora Blight of Pigeon Pea (Cajanus cajan (L.) Millsp.)
There was a positive correlation between low level of the field and maximum disease incidence and the incidence of disease was lowest at high field levels, which may be due to high or low moisture contents in both the levels. Expand
Development of Erysiphe pisi on susceptible and resistant cultivars of pea
There was no significant difference in amount or mode of spore germination of E. pisi when inoculated on to three pea cultivars of differing susceptibility, but preliminary studies showed the presence of more antifungal activity in the pods and leaves of the resistant cultivars. Expand
Prof: M S Pavgi Award Lecture - Pea-powdery mildew-an ideal pathosystem
Recent research on the pea-powdery mildew (Erysiphe pisi) pathosystem is reviewed with particular reference to symptomatology, spore germination, development of the pathogen on susceptible andExpand
A new species of cladochytrium from India
The fungus is accommodated as a new species, Cladochytrium indicum sp. Expand
Effect of 50-Hz-Powerline-Exposed Water on Spore Germination of Some Fungi
The study revealed that exposure time- and magnetic field strength-dependent different water differentially inhibited the spore germinations of various fungi. Expand
Peronospora pisi spore load on different leaves and its effect on chlorophyll, nucleic acid, protein and phenol contents of pea leaves
Significant decrease in nucleic acids (RNA and DNA), phenols and chlorophyll was observed in the infected zone while total protein increased, and in the healthy tissues near infection and healthy leaves. Expand
