Latest Research News on Growth of Potato : May 21

[1] Nitrogen and the growth of potato crops The lengthening of the period of full soil cover in response to increasing nitrogen supply can be explained from the effects of nitrogen on the rate of leaf expansion and on stem branching. Nitrogen supply modifies most other developmental processes or plant attributes only marginally or transiently. […]

Latest Research on Growth of Wheat : May 21

[1] A genetic analysis of the spring-winter habit of growth in wheat Developmental patterns of growth have been studied in nine spring and 10 winter wheat cultivars and in a number of crosses involving both groups. Among the spring cultivars five responded to vernalization while four did not. There was a very wide range in […]

Latest Research on Poor Farmers April-21

[1] Agroecology: the science of natural resource management for poor farmers in marginal environments Throughout the developing world, resource-poor farmers (about 1.4 billion people) located in risk-prone, marginal environments, remain untouched by modern agricultural technology. A new approach to natural resource management must be developed so that new management systems can be tailored and adapted […]

Latest News on Maize genetics: Feb 2021

MaizeGDB, the community database for maize genetics and genomics The Maize Genetics and Genomics Database (MaizeGDB) is a central repository for maize sequence, stock, phenotype, genotypic and karyotypic variation, and chromosomal mapping data. In addition, MaizeGDB provides contact information for over 2400 maize cooperative researchers, facilitating interactions between members of the rapidly expanding maize community. […]

Latest News on Maize genotypes: Feb 2021

Root Morphology of Contrasting Maize Genotypes Image analysis has greatly simplified the measurement of root systems, allowing more detailed and accurate assessment of standard root variables. However, maize (Zea mays L.) root morphology has primarily been studied in conventional hybrids. We tested the hypothesis that genotypes carrying the leafy trait (taller plants with more leaves […]

Latest News on Rice Seedling: Jan 2021

A hydroponic rice seedling culture model system for investigating proteome of salt stress in rice leaf By using an in vivo hydroponic rice seedling culture system, we investigated the physiological and biochemical responses of a model rice japonica cultivar Nipponbare to salt stress using proteomics and classical biochemical methods. Yoshida’s nutrient solution (YS) was used […]

Latest News on Growth of Sorghum: Jan 2021

Nutrient solution growth of sorghum and corn in mineral nutrition studies The growth of plants in nutrient solutions is an invaluable tool for mineral nutrition studies. Successful growth of plants in nutrient solutions require special attention and consideration. Details and helpful ideas for the growth of plants in nutrient solutions are often omitted in publications […]

Investigation and Assessment of the NECO’s Effectiveness against Cassava Bacterial Blight Caused by Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. Manihotis In Côte D’Ivoire

History and objective: Successfully implemented agriculture helps to minimise hunger and malnutrition in Sub-Saharan African countries’ rapidly growing populations Cassava (Manihot esculenta Crantz) is an important crop in intertropical regions. It is, however, subject to several factors, including the bacterial blight caused by Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. It’s Manihotis. The goal of this study was to […]

Advanced Study on Geographical Distribution and Incidence of Cassava Bacterial Blight (Manihot esculenta Crantz) Caused by Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. manihotis in Two Agro-ecological Zones of Côte d’Ivoire

Context and objective: In Côte d’Ivoire, manioc (Manihot esculenta Crantz) is the second largest food crop after yam. It is cultivated for its starch-rich fleshy roots and for its mineral-rich leaves (calcium, phosphorus and iron). This crop, however, is subject to various biotic limitations, one of the most formidable of which is the bacterial blight […]

Recent Studies on Molecular Characterization and Selection of Cassava Varietes Resistant to Xanthomonas axonopodis PV. Manihotis in Cote D’ivoire

Morpho-Molecular and symptomatic characterizations of Xanthomonas axonopodis PV strains. In Côte D’ivoire, Manihotis. Cassava is the second post-yam food crop in Côte d’Ivoire, with an approximate yield of 2.8 million tonnes per year. However, the cultivation of cassava suffers from many constraints which restrict its productivity. Bacterial blight from cassava caused by Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. […]
