Nested PCR assay for detection of sugarcane grassy shoot phytoplasma in the leafhopper vector Deltocephalus vulgaris: a first report
TLDR
A reliable molecular tool for the precise detection of SC GS phytoplasma in the D. vulgaris population would help forecast the potential of secondary spread of SCGS in a susceptible sugarcane variety, and may facilitate control of the disease.
Moringa olifera: Nutrient Dense Food Source and World’s Most Useful Plant to Ensure Nutritional Security, Good Health and Eradication of Malnutrition
TLDR
The majority of the research articles reviewed showed that Moringa leaves have very dense nutritional values, with highest number of antioxidants, and is rich in vitamins A, B, C, D, E and K.
Eco-friendly management of red rot disease of sugarcane with Trichoderma strains
TLDR
Application of Trichoderma biopesticide is eco-friendly, economical and efficient for improving soil health also and is useful for management of red rot and cultivation of moderately resistant varieties for several years.
Progressive decline in yield and quality of sugarcane due to Sugarcane mosaic virus
TLDR
Experiments were conducted to estimate the decline in yield and quality of juice due to SCMV (strain B) in three crop seasons and the results are reported herein.
Trichoderma induced improvement in growth, yield and quality of sugarcane
TLDR
Application of T. harzianum andT.viride was found to be economical, non hazardous and useful for soil health and the benefit cost ratio suggests that by expending*Rs.
Antidiabetic properties of aqueous and methanol extracts from the trunk bark of Ceiba pentandra in type 2 diabetic rat
TLDR
AECP and MECP possess type 2 antidiabetic effects that could result from their ability to improve the peripheral use of glucose, lipid metabolism or from their capacity to reduce oxidative stress.
Biological control of red rot disease of sugarcane through Trichoderma harzianum and Trichoderma viride
TLDR
The biocontrol of red rot offered by T harzianum and T. viride up to 5-6 months may be due to direct parasitic action of Trichoderma and also may be induced systemic resistance in sugarcane by the enzymatic actions of the metabolites released by the bioagent.
Ribosomal DNA Sequence Based Characterization of Trichoderma Isolates Antagonistic to Colletotrichum falcatum Causing Red Rot Disease of Sugarcane
TLDR
These isolates are distinct yet have close genetic similarity with several established strains/isolates of T. harzianum reported worldwide, and correct identification of these bioagents would augment the effective utilization of these fungi of immense agricultural importance in managing the red rot disease of sugarcane.
