This present study was designed to convert the waste products present in the environment into a valuable product by an ecofriendly approach. Vermicomposting is a cost effective, pollution free process by use of earthworms. A comparative study was carried out to convert cow dung, leaf litter, and market waste into vermicompost and the efficiency of the two earthworm species were tested. Both the species shows the degradation of substrates and convert them into nutrient rich vermicompost .The…

Effects of vermicomposts and composts on plant growth in horticultural container media and soil
Summary Vermicomposts, which are produced by the fragmentation of organic wastes by earthworms, have a fine particulate structure and contain nutrients in forms that are readily available for plant
Legume seed flavonoids and nitrogenous metabolites as signals and protectants in early seedling development.
TLDR
An improvement in the understanding of seed chemistry would permit manipulation of these molecules for effective control of pathogens, insect pests, Striga and destructive weeds, as well as for enhanced acquisition of N and P via symbioses with soil rhizobia and AM fungi.
Chlorophyll a oxygenase (CAO) is involved in chlorophyll b formation from chlorophyll a.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that a chlorophyll a oxygenase is involved inchlorophyll b formation and that an overlapping region of a nuclear genome was deleted in all mutants and that this encodes a protein whose sequence is similar to those of methyl monooxygenases.

TLDR
Evidence that a copper enzyme, polyphenoloxidase (otherwise known as tyrosinase or catecholase), is localized in the chloroplasts of spinach beet (chard), Beta vu?garis is presented.
