A begomovirus was isolated from tomato plants showing leaf curl and stunting symptoms in farmers’ fields near the district of Kalyani, West Bengal, India. Viral genomic components amplified by rolling-circle amplification were cloned and sequenced. The genome organization of this virus was found to be similar to those of Old World monopartite begomovirus,(More)
BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES There is no national spinal trauma registry available in India at present and the research on epidemiology of these injuries is also very limited. The purpose of this study was to describe the mortality profile of patients with spinal injuries brought to a level I trauma centre in India, and to understand the predictive factors which(More)
The crude methanolic extract of Datura stramonium, Azadirachta indica, and Calotropis procera leaves, Allium sativum (AS) cloves, and Carica papaya (CP) seeds collected from Banaskanta, Gujarat (India) was tested for its acaricidal properties against Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus. The percent adult mortality within 15 days, reproductive index,(More)
Cryptosporidium parvum is an intracellular spore-forming protozoa which predominantly causes intestinal diseases. It causes severe and life-threatening diarrheal diseases in immunocompromised hosts and usually self-limiting disease in immunocompetent hosts. Extra-intestinal manifestations of cryptosporidium infection are very rare. Herein, we report a case(More)
Cereal–legume intercropping is a common practice in most of the countries. Intercropping of maize with legume or oilseed may be helpful in increasing food production. This study evaluated intercropping of maize (Zea mays L.) with sunflower (Helianthus annuus L.) and urdbean (Vigna mungo L.) under different planting row ratios. Ten treatments consisting of(More)
Parasitic infections adversely affect animal's health and threaten profitable animal production, thus affecting the economy of our country. These infections also play a major role in the spread of zoonotic diseases. Parasitic infections cause severe morbidity and mortality in animals especially those affecting the gastrointestinal system and thus affect the(More)
Mirabilis jalapa and Chrysanthemum sp. plants showing little leaf symptoms were observed during 2010 in New Delhi, India. Nested-PCR assays using phytoplasma specific 16S ribosomal DNA primers resulted in amplicons with sequence similarity to members of 16SrII group. Phylogenetic analysis confirmed this finding by showing the relatedness of both the little(More)
