This experiment was conducted to investigate the variation of nitrogen efficiency (NE), nitrogen uptake efficiency (UE), physiological nitrogen use efficiency (PUE) among Indian mustard genotypes, grown under N-insufficient and N-sufficient conditions. Nitrogen efficiency varied from 52.7 to 92.8. Seed yield varied from 1.14 t ha(-1) to 3.21 t ha(-1) under(More)
BACKGROUND Nitrogen [N] is a critical limiting nutrient for plants and has to be exogenously supplied to many crops, to achieve high yield with significant economic and environmental costs, specifically for rice. Development of low-input nitrogen sustainable crop is necessary for sustainable agriculture. Identification of regulatory elements associated with(More)
Chlorophyll (Chl) a and b content, ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (RuBPCO) content and activity, and electron transport rate were measured in flag leaves of wheat genotypes Uniculm and Kalyansona, grown at suboptimal and optimal supply of nitrogen. The Chl content, RuBPCO activity, and electron transport rate were decreased due to(More)
We analyzed the effect of omission of sulfur (S) from the nutrient solution and then restoration of S-source on the uptake and assimilation of nitrate in rapeseed. Incubation in nutrient solution without S for 1–6 days led to decline in uptake of nitrate, activities, and expression levels of nitrate reductase (NR) and glutamine synthetase (GS). The nitrite(More)
Glycine, a photorespiratory intermediate, enhanced the in vivo reduction of nitrate in barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) leaf slices, when included in the assay medium. Isonicotinyl hydrazide, an inhibitor of glycine oxidation, partially reduced NO(2) (-) production. The enhancement caused by glycine treatment was reversed by isonicotinyl hydrazide when both were(More)
WildVigna radiata var.sublobata populations, inhabiting the mountains of India, and two cultigens,V. mungo andV. radiata, were examined for seed-protein content and amino acid composition. The protein content in the populations varied from 15.2 to 21%. Lysine, valine, isoleucine, leucine, phenylalanine, and tyrosine contents were invariably higher in wild(More)
The plants grown in natural conditions do not express their full potential of nitrogen (N) utilization due to limiting availability of N at later stages of growth. There is a likelihood of manifesting their full potential under non limiting nitrogen supply. In our earlier studies with 15 day old seedlings, it has been shown that high nitrate reductase (HNR)(More)
