Study on the Effect of Biourine and Mycorrhizal Arbuscular Fungi towards Result and Value of Forage Nutrition Hymenachne amplexicaulis (Rudge) Nees) on the of Ex-Coal Mine Land: An Advanced Study

The goal of this study is to discover, obtain, and demonstrate that administering biourine and mycorrhiza arbuskula (FMA) to ex-coal mine land can enhance fertility, hence influencing the outcomes and nutritional value of forage feed. With four treatments and five replications, this study used a completely randomised design. The therapy includes: 1) a 0% biourine…

Haemato- Biochemical and Electrolyte Changes in Naturally Occurring Theileria Associated Bovine Anaemia (Taba)

The goal of this study was to see how haematology and serum electrolytes changed in cows that were naturally infected with theileriosis. In the study, 102 crossbred cows aged 2 to 5 years were screened and analysed. Twelve of them were discovered to be naturally afflicted with theileria. A control group of twelve animals of…

Investigating the Effects of Two Different Diets on Carcass and Meat Quality Traits of Chato Murciano Pigs

To test the effects of two diets, 40 castrated male pigs of the Spanish autochthonous Chato Murciano breed were utilised. Twenty pigs were fed a high protein/low fat (HP/LF) diet and slaughtered at 125.03 kg LW. The remaining 20 pigs were fed an LP/HF diet and slaughtered at 121.91 kg LW. The effects of diet…

Latest Research on Rice Seedling: October 2021

  Rice Seedling Vigor at Sub-optimal Temperatures A laboratory method was devised for evaluating seedling vigor of rice (Oryza sativa L.) cultivars, hybrids, and segregating populations at sub-optimal temperatures. Seeds of 20 cultivars of diverse origin were soaked in distilled water for 24 hours at 30 C and then germinated in the dark on moist blotters…

Latest Research on Weed Control: October 2021

  Prospects for Weed Control Through Crop Interference     Crop interference with weed growth is a fundamental method of nonchemical weed control. Crop interference, entailing weed suppression, should be distinguished from crop tolerance of weeds, i.e., relatively small yield loss due to the presence of weeds. Tolerance is less desirable than interference in that it may…

News Update on Seed Germination: October 2021

Water Relations in Seed Germination In seeds that dehydrate at maturity, the germination process is initiated by the imbibition of water by the dry seed. If imbibition is prevented by impermeable seed coats, as with hard seeds, germination cannot occur. Seeds with permeable seed coats generally exhibit a three-phase process of water uptake consisting of…
