Musa balbisiana is perhaps one of the progenitors of the commercial banana. It is widely distributed in North East India. Economic importances of this plant as well as morphological traits were studied. DNA from M. balbisiana was isolated and restriction digestion was done to check the purity and clean nature of the DNA sample. Mostly, the genome size is determined by using flow cytometry but genome size can also be determined by microscope, which is the easiest and less expensive method than the flow cytometry. The genome size of the plant was determined approximately 0.62 pg per haploid set of chromosome (1.24 pg/2C). Among, the Musa species the genome size of M.balbisiana is the smallest. Source

The plant growth parameters of Patchouli (Pogostemon cablin Benth.) were significantly influenced by Bokashi treatment with maximum height, number of branches, plant spread, leaf size and leaf area index as 72.4 cm, 32.8 cm, 7818.63 cm2,64.88 cm2 and 5.06 respectively. Application of Bokashi treatment provided the highest dry herbage yield of 4.67 t/ha against 3.96 t/ha in control by one time harvest. The essential oil content and oil yield per hector were also significantly influenced by the Bokashi treatment and it recorded 2.35 % (w/w) oil recovery when distilled after 30 days of curing. Essential oils from both the treatments of Patchouli were analyzed by GC-MS. Patchouli alcohol content both in Bokashi treatment and control are 45.330% and 44.669% respectively. Other major components are also higher in Bokashi treatment than control. Source

The paper deals with folklore medicinal uses of 31 plant species belonging to 25 families for various ailments among the Adi-Minyong tribe of Arunachal Pradesh. It is also recorded that some of the species like Solanum spirale Roxb., Pueraria thunbergiana Benth., Calicarpa arborea Roxb., etc, having multiple uses among the local people and their use in their festival and rituals have been recorded for the first time in the present study.
