In non-irrigated agricultural fields in tropical zones, high temperature and water stress prevail during the main cropping season. Natural epizootics of Beauveria bassiana on lepidopteran pests occur during winter. Application of B. bassiana during hot months when pest populations are at their climax may prove an effective management strategy. Therefore, 29(More)
The entomopathogenic Beauveria bassiana is a potential biopesticide. Fungicide-tolerant isolates of this fungus would have an added advantage of being compatible with the conventional chemical methods of pest control. Therefore, 30 isolates of the fungus were screened for tolerance to bavistin a commonly used benzimidazole fungicide containing methyl(More)
Direct differentiation of shoot buds from the collar region of hypocotyl segments of Coffea canephora was obtained on Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium supplemented with 40 μM silver nitrate (AgNO3) and growth regulators indole-3-acetic acid (IAA) and N6 benzyladenine (BA). The highest response to shoot differentiation of 60% frequency and the maximum number(More)
Municipal Solid waste management (MSWM) has become an acute problem due to enhanced economic activities and rapid urbanization. Solid waste, which is a consequence of day-to-day activity of human kind, needs to be managed properly. We face problems associated with poorly managed solid waste operation. Increased attention has been given by the government in(More)
Polyamines are essential compounds for growth and development in plants. An attempt has been made to find out the endogenous polyamine profiles in various parts and during the ontogeny of fruit formation of two commercially important Coffea species viz., arabica and canephora. Putrescine (Put), spermine (Spm) and spermidine (Spd) are the predominant(More)
Organic pollutants comprise a potential group of chemicals which can be dreadfully hazardous to human health. As they persist in the environment, they are capable of long range transportation, bioaccumulation in human and animal tissue and biomagnifications in food chain. Phenolic compounds are hazardous pollutants that are toxic at relatively low(More)
Direct differentiation of shoot buds in Coffea dewevrei was evident from the seedling shoots with collar region and also from collar region end of hypocotyl segments in presence of 40 μM AgNO3, 8.88 μM of BA and 2.85 μM of IAA. Apart from this, shoot end of hypocotyl explants mainly supported yellow friable callus or somatic embryos. Subsequent transfer to(More)
Salt stress is a major environmental factor in arid and semi-arid regions and influences many aspects of plant development. Salinity results in generation of various free radicals that can potentially damage the cellular constituents in plants. Plants were able to effectively reduce the damage caused by these free radicals by a way of enzymatic and non(More)
Mevastatin, also known as compactin or ML-236B is a member of the class of statins belonging to the polyketide group. Polyketides are rich sources of pharmaceuticals, including antibiotics, anticancer drugs, and cholesterol-lowering drugs, immunosuppressants and other therapeutics [1]. This study was performed for the production of mevastatin using sesame(More)

Biosorption is the adhesion of molecules of gas, liquid, or dissolved solids to a surface. Adsorption is present in many natural physical, biological, and chemical systems and is widely used in industrial applications. Here we had been reported work on removal of dyes from waste water by using papaya peel as biosorbent and experimental data were obtained(More)
