In the autumn of 2008, Vigna mungo var. silvestris growing in the experimental field of the Indian Institute of Pulses Research, Kanpur, India, showed chlorosis around some lateral veins and vein branches (mainly near the leaflet margin), downward curling of the leaf margins, necrosis of the stems and petioles, and twisting of the leaflets. Disease incidence was 20%. Symptoms indicated that the cause was Groundnut bud necrosis virus. The virus was identified on the basis of the symptoms on the diagnostic host, and the reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) using specific primers of the NSm and NP genes. To our knowledge this is the first report of Groundnut bud necrosis virus on V. mungo var. silvestris.

An experiment was carried out during two subsequent years, i.e., 2009-10 and 2010-11 to study the influence of Azotobacter, vermicompost on growth, flowering, yield and quality of strawberry cv. Chandler. There were nine treatments comprising two levels each of Azotobacter (6 and 7 kg/ha) and vermicompost (20 and 30 t/ ha) and their combinations along with one control, replicated thrice in randomized block design. Five kg of FYM was applied as a basal dose in all the treatments including control. All the doses of Azotobacter and vermicompost were applied at the time of planting in the field. The data of both the years of experiment were pooled and analyzed. The combined application of Azotobacter at 7 kg/ha + vermicompost at 30 t/ha significantly increased the height of plant (18.70 cm), number of leaves (61.60), crowns (6.77) and runners (4.83) per plant, whereas, maximum number of flowers (56.69), fruits set (25.87) per plant with increased duration of harvesting (66.80 days) and minimum number of days taken to produce first flower (55.17 days) and fruit set (6.19 days) with significantly more yield (322.38 g/plant) were observed with Azotobacter at 6 kg/ha + vermicompost at 30 t/ha applied plants. Plants fertilized with Azotobacter at 6 kg/ha + vermicompost at 30 t/ha also produced the berries with maximum length (4.76 cm), width (2.49 cm), weight (8.75 g), volume (5.97 cc), TSS (9.800Brix), total sugars (9.23%), ascorbic acid (54.72 mg/100 g edible portion) with minimum titratable acidity (0.50%) in comparison to other treatments under plains of central Uttar Pradesh. © 2015, Horticulture Society of India.

An experiment consisting of twenty-one maize hybrids was conducted during kharif 2012 at Oilseeds Research Farm, Kalyanpur, Kanpur. Each genotype was sown in two rows each of 4 meter long spaced at 60×25 cm between rows and plants respectively in a randomized complete block design in three replications. The observations were recorded on five randomly selected plants for chlorophyll intensity at 30 and 60 DAS, Proline content (mm) at 60 DAS, Dry weight/plant at the intervals of 30, 60 and 90 DAS, cob weight per plant (g) and protein content. The statistical and biometrical analysis was carried out using standard formula. The results showed high heritability coupled with high genetic advance for total dry weight at maturity followed by cob yield per plant, dry weight at 60 DAS and proline content at 60 DAS reflecting the role of additive gene action. High heritability and low genetic advance was observed for chlorophyll intensity at 30 and 60 DAS and plant dry weight at 30 DAS indicating the presence of both additive and non-additive genes for controlling the characters. Cob yield per plant showed positive and significant correlation with plant dry weight at maturity. Its association with plant dry weight at 60 DAS was negatively significant. © 2016, Indian Society of Agricultural Biochemists. All rights reserved.

Genetic analysis was carried out to determine the mode of inheritance of resistance to bud fly which is a key pest of linseed during flowering stage. Parents, F1, F2, BC1 and BC2 populations of three crosses involving two resistant, IC 15888 and JRF4 and two susceptible parents, viz., Neelum and GS-41 were the experimental materials. Reaction to bud fly in F1s of all the three crosses indicated that resistance was dominant over susceptibility. The F2 and back cross segregants were categorized in to resistant and susceptible classes based on per cent bud infestation. The genetic analysis in F2 generation revealed that two dominant complementary genes in IC 15888 control the bud fly resistance, while JRF 4 carried a single dominant gene for resistance. The F2 results were confirmed by genetic analysis of back cross populations. It can be categorically stated that the knowledge of number and nature of resistance genes in IC 15888 and JRF4 will be valuable for development of bud fly resistant varieties in linsee. © 2015, Indian Society of Genetics and Plant Breeding.

Twenty three genotypes of lentil (Lens culinaris Medik.) were evaluated for grain yield, protein content and some other metric traits during 2005-06. Twelve characters were recorded in each genotype to compare the variability among them. Analysis of variance exhibited significant differences for days to maturity, clusters per plant, pods per clusters, pods per plant, harvest index and protein content indicated presence of genetic variability for these traits. Based on the different characteristics, genotypes were grouped into four clusters having 6 (K 75, KLS 221, L 4076,DPL 62, DPL 58, PL 406), 9 (IPL 306, NDL 2-3, IPL 304, KLB 148, HUL 57, KLB 2001, KLS 218, DPL 15, KLB 97-3), 1 (Precoz) and 7 (PL 639, KLS 219, KLS 133, KLB 86-11, FLIP 56-61, KLB 97-5, KLS 86-13) genotypes. Cluster I was characterized by better grain yield, protein content and most of the yield related traits except 1000 seed weight and branches per plant, while cluster III was represented by genotype (Precoz) having extra early maturity and extra bold seeded group. The genetic divergence was high between cluster I and III and low between cluster II and IV indicating their close relationship. The genotypes of divergent clusters such as cluster I and cluster III can be utilized in the crossing programme to produce better recombinants for development of varieties.

Watershed is a topographically delineated area that is drained by a stream system and a hydrological unit that is often used as a physical-biological unit as well as a socio-economic-political unit for planning and management of natural resources. Watershed management is the process of guiding and organising the use of land and other resources on a watershed to provide desired goods and services without harming soil and water resources. The study was carried out during 2008-09 and 2009-10 in the pilot area of model Watershed, Rendhar, Jalaun, U.P., India under financial assistance of Ministry of Water Resources, Government of India. One descript breed of buffalo 'Murrah' was provided under each system. The seven selected cropping systems were diversified with companion crops of rabi season. Further, each sequence was integrated with one 'Murrah' buffalo for maintaining cash flow of resource poor farm families of Bundelkhand reeling below poverity line (BPL). Sesame-pea + mustard +one 'Murrah' buffalo; sesame-wheat+mustard+one 'Murrah' buffalo; sesame-lentil+mustard+one 'Murrah' buffalo; sesame-linseed+mustard+one 'Murrah' buffalo; sesame-lentil+linseed+one 'Murrah' buffalo sesamegram+ mustard+one 'Murrah' buffalo and sesamegram+ linseed+one 'Murrah' buffalo integrated farming system were tested on ravines affected farmers fields. Among the tested integrated farming systems, the maximum net income (Rs. 65819/ha) was obtained from sesame-lentil + mustard + one 'Murrah' buffalo and was closely followed by sesame-lentil + linseed (Rs. 64004/ ha) in ravines degraded soils of Bundelkhand. The lowest net return of Rs. 35999/ha was recorded from sesame-wheat + mustard + one 'Murrah' buffalo farming system.

An investigation was carried out in thirty genotypes of chickpea to understand the association among the yield components and their direct and indirect effect on the seed yield. The estimates of genotypic correlation coefficients, in general, were higher than their corresponding phenotypic correlation coefficients indicating strong inherent association among the traits. Characters association studies indicated that number of pods per plant, number of primary branches per plant and number of secondary branches per plant showed significantly positive correlation with seed yield at genotypic and phenotypic levels. Path coefficient analysis revealed that number of pods per plant, number of seeds per pod, number of primary branches per plant, number of secondary branches per plant and 100 seed weight were the most important characters which can be strategically used to improve yield in chickpea. The present study, thus, suggested that selection for high seed yield should be based on number of pods per plant, number of primary branches per plant and number of secondary branches per plant.

The present experiment was conducted with three levels of irrigation viz, I0 irrigation (No irrigation), I1 one irrigation (CRI) and I2 two irrigations (CRI + Flowering) with 10 wheat genotypes i.e. K7903, K9162, K9351, K9465, K8962, K9423, K0307, NW1014, K9533 and HD2733. Results of Plant vigour (mg/main shoot) higher in K8962 but low in K7903, Days to 75% heading (days) higher in HD2733 and lower in K8962, Leaf area (cm2/main shoot) higher in K0307and lower in K7903 at both stages, Grain Growth Rate (g/m2/day) higher in K8962 but low in HD2733, Biomass (g/m2) higher in NW1014 but low in HD2733 and Harvest Index (%) higher in K8962 as well as lower in K9533 were recorded as compared to other genotypes under all levels of irrigation. Irrigation levels 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.
