The effect of application of micronutrients viz. zinc, boron and molybdenum on the biochemical and nutritional quality of chickpea variety Avarodhi was studied during 2012-13 and 2013-14. The application of zinc @ 5.0 kg ha-1 increased grain protein to 21.21% and protein yield to 470.69 kg ha-1 . Tryptophan of grain increased significantly on application of zinc, whereas methionine was not affected on zinc application either at 2.5 or 5.0 kg ha-1. Similarly, the application of boron @ 2.0 kg ha-1 gave the highest values of protein (20.65%), protein yield (450.35 kg ha-1), tryptophan (0.75 g/100 g protein) and ash content (2.99%), whereas methionine and lipid content were not affected. Application of molybdenum @ 400 g ha-1 increased the protein content of grain as well as total protein yield and tryptophan contents significantly. The carbohydrate decreased significantly with increasing levels of zinc, boron and molybdenum. Zinc application @ 5.0 kg ha-1 increased potassium, sulphur and zinc contents of gr ain significantly. Boron when applied @ 2.0 kg ha-1 and molybdenum @ 400 g ha-1 increased phosphorus, potassium, sulphur, boron and molybdenum contents of grain significantly. © 2015, Indian Society of Agricultural Biochemists.

Storage seed proteins of KGD-1287, KGD 1288, KGD 1290, KGD 1291, KGD 1298, KGD 1299, KGD 1300, KGD 1301, KGD 1302, KGD 1168, Avarodhi, Pragati and Radhey were analysed by SDS-PAGE. The protein banding patterns in thirteen genotypes were studied for variability in protein band expression. In the electrophoregram of tris soluble protein through SDS-PAGE in all 13 genotypes, the number of protein bands ranged from 14 to 23 with Rm values from 0.14 to 0.97. The differences were clearly seen in respect of number, length and intensity of polypeptide bands of the protein. Thus, the genotype can be distinguished on the basis of presence or absence of protein band at particular Rm value and total number of bands present. © 2015, Indian Society of Agricultural Biochemists.

To quantify the effect of thermal stress and photothermal quotient (PTQ) on yield components, eleven years experimental data of three cultivars (HD-2285, K-8804 and K-9107) under three sowing dates at Kanpur centre were analysed. Number of grains per ear (NG), grain weight per ear (GW) and 1000-grain weight (TG) were identified as prime yield contributing components in HD-2285, K-8804 and K-9107, respectively. GW was highly sensitive to maximum temperature (MXT) while NG was sensitive to minimum temperature (MNT) during jointing (JNT) to anthesis (ATS) as well as the total growing season in all the cultivars. In both HD-2285 and K-8804, optimum MXT and MNT during JNT to ATS are 22.7-24.6 and 7.0-7.9 °C, respectively for obtaining maximum NG. Optimum MXT for GW ranged from 15.8-17.3 °C during tillering (TLR) to JNT stage in K-8804 and K-9107 while it was 20.4 °C during JNT to ATS stage in HD-2285. MXT, MNT and PTQ of 23.6 °C, 9.2 °C and 25 MJ/m2/day/°C, respectively during JNT to ATS in K-9107 were found optimum for higher TG. Copyright © Cambridge University Press 2015.

Twenty two advance Indian mustard [Brassica juncea (L.) Czern and Coss.] genotypes were evaluated to assess genotypic variability in physio-biochemical parameters under late sown conditions. On the basis of this study, it was found that genotypes RH-8814, NRCDR-02 and BPR-549-9 recorded maximum values of relative water content (RWC %), chlorophyll stability index (CSI %), chlorophyll content (mg /g f. wt. leaf tissue) and lesser membrane injury index (MII %) over other genotypes at different growth stages. Thus RH-8814, NRCDR-02 and BPR-549-9 indicated their involvement in mechanism of terminal heat tolerance. Genotypes NRCDR-701, NPJ-113, NPJ-117, RGN-773, RGN-197, RH-0116 and DRMR-537-40 recoded a moderate heat tolerance which is preferable under late sown irrigated condition. So they can be used as donors in crossing programs to evolve new mustard genotypes having thermal tolerance. © 2015, Indian Society of Agricultural Biochemists. All rights reserved.

To study the effect of nutrient management in mung bean through sulphur and biofertilizers, a field experiment was carried out during 2006 and 2007. The treatments contained four levels of sulphur i.e. 0, 15, 30, 45 kg ha-1 and four levels of biofertilizers viz. Uninoculated, Rhizobium, PSB and Rhizobium + PSB with 4 replications in factorial RBD. Results indicated that application of sulphur @ 30 kg ha-1 significantly increased the plant height (44.6 cm), primary branches (5.18), effective pods plant-1 (27.8), grains pods-1 (11.0), 1000 grain wt. (35.7 g), grain and stover yield (12.0 and 28.1 q ha-1), nitrogen uptake (86.05 kg ha-1), phosphorus uptake (10.06 kg ha-1), sulphur uptake (7.71 kg ha-1) and quality parameters like protein (24.56 %) and methionine (5.96 g/ 100 g N) in comparison to sulphur @ 15 kg ha-1. Application of sulphur @ 15 kg S ha 1 significantly and linearly decreased the PSB population. Actinomycetes population was not significantly affected by the treatments. However, sulfur application showed a diminishing trend in the population of actinomycetes. Rhizobium and PSB inoculation also showed significant response to all the parameters and showed better response when co-inoculated (Rhizobium + PSB). However, total bacterial population (41.7 × 106 g 1 soil), Rhizobium like organism (RLO) population (13.9 × 103 g 1 soil) and Azotobacter population (12 × 103 g 1 soil) significantly increased up to the level of 15 kg S ha 1. Rhizobium and PSB inoculation showed significant response to all the parameters and showed better response when co-inoculated with Rhizobium + PSB.

The present investigation was carried out under three levels of irrigation i.e. I0 (No irrigation), I1 one irrigation (CRI) and I2, two irrigations (CRI + Flowering) involving 10 wheat genotypes viz, K7903, K9162, K9351, K9465, K8962, K9423, K0307, NW1014, K9533 and HD2733. Results revealed that wheat genotypes viz, K9351, K8962, K9465, K0307, K9162 and NW1014 recorded higher nitrate reductase (NR) activity, superoxide dismutase (SOD), total soluble sugar and proline content in leaf as compared to other genotypes under all levels of irrigation. Irrigation level i.e. I0 (No irrigation) had deleterious effect on almost all the above mentioned traits as compared to I1, one irrigation (CRI stage) and I2, two irrigations (CRI and Flowering stage). Thus, these traits which are simple and easily measurable can be used for screening of wheat genotypes for drought and heat tolerance. Genotypes such as K9351, K8962, K9465, K0307, K9162 and NW1014 were found better performer in respect of above traits under different levels of irrigation as compared to other genotypes. Therefore, these genotypes can be used as suitable donors in breeding programme to develop new drought and heat tolerant genotypes. © 2015, Indian Society of Agricultural Biochemists.

Field experiments were conducted to study the impact of stabilized N fertilizer on yield, nutrient uptake and soil quality under maize-wheat cropping sequence at Fertilizer Research Farm, Uttaripura, Kanpur Nagar (U. P.), Chandra Shekhar Azad University of Agriculture & Technology, Kanpur during 2010-11 and 2011-12. Results indicated that grain and straw yield of maize-wheat significantly increased with the use of different urea A Lab over (T1) urea lab 8041 (plain urea). Significant increase in yield of maize-wheat was also noted within each urea A Lab up to urea A Lab 8044. The highest grain yield of maize and wheat was noted 33.15 and 56.75 q/ha, respectively, with urea A Lab 8045 (T6). The per cent response in grain of maize-wheat at T6 over T2 was noted (6.75 and 10.25 q/ha) with corresponding per cent response 25.56 and 22.04, respectively. Nutrient uptake (NPK) also significantly increased with various urea A Lab over urea Lab (T2). Protein content in both maize and wheat positively responded with the use of different urea A Lab over urea Lab. The response of various urea A Lab 100% was almost at par with 125% urea Lab 8046 (plain urea).

The present study has its relevance to explain the effect of residues along with green manure (Sesbania and cowpea) on rice-wheat cropping system. Randomized block design (RBD) was applied to lay out the experiment with five treatments: T1-Residue removal, T2-Residue incorporation (@ 5-6 t/ha), T3-Burned residue, T4-Residue incorporation+80 kg N/ha and T5-Residue incorporation+40 kg N/ha for the two consecutive years (2006-07 and 2007-08). The combined application of crop residue and green manures i. e. Sesbania and cowpea improved plant height, number of tillers, test weight and grain yield in both rice and wheat crops. Overall results proved that green manure along with crop residue could prove useful to improve grain yield as well as to provide favourable soil nutrient conditions for the plant growth.
