Study on the Influence of Topography and Management Practices on Nitrogen Content of Soils Formed in Biotite-Granite Parent Material on the Jos Plateau, Nigeria

The purpose of this research is to examine the nitrogen content of soils produced on biotite-granite parent materials and to suggest management strategies that will ensure the nutrient’s availability for long-term crop development. Nitrogen is an important macronutrient for crop growth and output. Soil fertility is one of the key restrictions to long-term crop productivity…

Floristic Diversity, Spatial Distribution and Conservation Status of Sacred Forest Fragment in West Coast of Kanyakumari District, Tamilnadu, India

Due to cultural, religious beliefs, and taboos, sacred forest fragments are virgin or natural landscapes with a varied range of species that have been safeguarded by villages from various anthropogenic activities. These groves act as vital reservoirs for indigenous plant species as well as a shelter for RET species. The purpose of this study was…

Facile In vitro Glass Slide Light Microscopy Method Using Tetracycline to Visualise a Repetitive Pattern in Aerial Plant Root Tips Filamentous Network: An Advanced Study

The main purpose of this work is to show how to visualise plant root filaments using a basic light microscopy technique. In vitro experiments on freshly plucked human hair roots indicated Tetracycline’s (TE) damaging effect on soft tissue, which was severe enough to allow detection of an underlying filamentous skeleton in a prior study. In…

Identification of Low and High Erucic Acid Containing Genotype(S) in Indian Mustard Employing Molecular Markers

The presence of erucic acid in traditional Brassica oilseeds is well-regarded as an anti-nutritional concern for human consumption, as it causes harmful effects on the heart at high enough doses. As a result, there is a compelling need to limit erucic acid content and generate low-erucic-acid cultivars using conventional and/or molecular breeding methods. When there…

Does Salinity Enhance Allelopathic Effects of Tribulus terrestris L. in Citrullus Vulgaris Schrad. Agroecosystems at Nobaria, Egypt? Experimental Investigation

Field investigations in the summer of 2013 revealed that some undiscovered stressful factors had a significant impact on Citrullus vulgaris growth and yield in the Nobaria district of Egypt. Presumably, the problem was confined to the two combined causes of soil salinity and Tribulus terrestris inhibitory effects (a common weed dominant in C. vulgaris fields…

Plant Genomic DNA Isolation: An Important Technology for Marker Assisted Selection

Plant biotechnology is required to increase the chances of crop enhancement projects succeeding. DNA marker technology, which is derived from molecular genetics and genomics research, holds a lot of potential for plant breeding. In plant breeding, marker-assisted selection improves efficiency and precision. Mapping and marker-assisted selection of a certain characteristic necessitates high-quality DNA from a…

Study on the Effect of Embankment Soil Layers on Stress-strain Characteristics

Dam embankments are geotechnical structures that are difficult to understand. The nonlinear behaviour of the construction materials, interactions between the structure and the underlying soil and rock strata, influence of the water load on the structure and the foundation bedrock, and the effects of water saturation all play a role in the deformation of an…
