Precision agriculture is finding its roots in India. PA always deals with the accuracy and timely information about agriculture products. With the rapid development of computer hardware and software technology, the application of image processing technology in the agricultural research are playing key role . Also, with the advantages of superior speed and accuracy, computer vision has attracted it as an alternative to human inspection . In this paper, we have described a novel application of computer vision and color image segmentation for automating the precise yield prediction process of gerbera flower yield from the polyhouse images. The purpose of the present study is to design a decision support system that could generate flower yield information and serve as base for management & planning of flower marketing. Current study has applied the color image segmentation technique using threshold, to extract the flowers from the scene. Color is considered a fundamental physical property of agriculture products and foods in information analysis . Using HSV color space and histogram analysis, flower color definition is done. Then by the image segmentation process, flowers were separated from the background & detected in the images. Image set with 75 images were tested with this technique. © 2013 IEEE.

Gout is caused by high uric acid in the blood that leads to excess uric acid crystallizing in the joints causing swelling and pain. Uric acid is produced from the breakdown of the purine which is released when cells die or introduced from the food we eat. The enzyme that helps in breakdown of purine to uric acid is xanthine oxidase (XO). Allopurinol is a potent xanthine oxidase inhibitor. In present work synthesis of several novel Ce(III),Nd(III) compounds with allopurinol as heterocyclic ligand is reported.The ligand and metal complexes were characterized on the basis of elemental analysis, IR, UV spectral data, molar conductance, magnetic moment measurement, thermal analysis (TGA). Ce(III), Nd(III) complexes possesses octahedral geometry. The ligand and it's metal complexes were screened for their antibacterial and antifungal activities.

It is common knowledge that moistures food cannot keep longer at room temperature. Hence, Ujani basundi product also cannot keep longer than 4 days at room temperature. The product can remain safe for number of days at refrigerator temperature but it is costly method of preservation, hence an attempt was therefore, made to develop a technology for improving the shelf life of Ujani basundi at 30°C applicable in village conditions by employing the food grade antimycotic agents like potassium sorbate and antifungal agent like cardamom. Therefore, changes in standard plate count, conform count, yeast and mold count, flavor, body and texture, color and appearance were determined during the entire storage period. Potassium sorbate added product gave shelf life up to 20 days at refrigerated temperature whereas, 10 days at ambient temperature (30°C). Potassium sorbate added sample showed good inhibitory effect in microbiological study. The control and cardamom added samples gave the shelf life up to 15 days at refrigeration temperature and 5 days at ambient temperature (30°C). However, the flavor of cardamom added samples found superior among all the treatment during storage study. Therefore, from the present investigation it is concluded that the product can be stored at refrigerated (5±1°C) and ambient temperature (30±1°C) by the addition of potassium sorbate for 20 and 10 days, respectively with acceptable quality. © 2012 Academic Journals Inc.

A rapid and sensitive LC-MS-MS method for the determination of alverine (ALV) and its major metabolite, monohydroxy alverine (MHA), in human plasma using imipramine as an internal standard was developed and validated. The analytes were extracted from 0.5 mL aliquots of human plasma by solid phase extraction, using oasis cartridge. Chromatographic separation was carried on Thermo Gold C18 column (50 × 4.6 mm, 5 μ) at 30 °C, with isocratic mobile phase, a flow rate of 0.4 mL/min and a total run time of 3.5 min. Detection and quantification were performed using a mass spectrometer in the selected reaction-monitoring mode with positive electrospray ionization at m/z 282.3 →91.11 for alverine, m/z 298.3 → 106.9 for mono-hydroxy- alverine, and m/z 281.0 → 86.0 for internal standard (IS) respectively. This assay was linear over a concentration range of 0.060-10 ng/mL with a lower limit of quantification of 0.060 ng/mL for both alverine and monohydroxy alverine. The coefficient of variation for the assay precision were <9.18% and <8.44%, the accuracy were >104.66% and >100.38% for alverine and monohydroxy alverine respectively. This method was successfully applied to a pharmacokinetic study after oral administration of alverine citrate 60 mg capsule in healthy male subjects.

The effect of varying concentration of [substrate], [oxidant], [H +], added neutral salt have been studied. It has been found that, the order of reaction with respect to [oxidant] and [substrate] found to be unity from the slope of plots log k vs log [sub]. The rate of reaction increases with decrease in pH of perchloric acid. Hammett's acidity function and activity of water have been studied. Effect of temperature has been studied. Activation parameters were computed. The plot of ΔH* vs ΔS* is linear. The effect of dielectric constant of the medium indicates the reaction to be +ve iondipole. The result of oxidation products have been identified.

The effect of zinc sulphate on cardiac physiology of Bartelphusa guerini was investigated after acute exposure to zinc sulphate. Remarkable differences were found between control and treated crabs. The rate of heart beat was studied at regular interval of 24 h up to 240 h (1 Odays). The investigation showed an initial decline in heart rate up to 48 h, which then gradually decreases up to 240 h in control group. The treated animals showed initial increase up to 72 h and laterthere is a gradual decline in the rate of heart beat up to 240 h. The decline in rate of heart beat may indicate that animals try to settle down to the toxic medium and initial increase in the heart beat rate may be due to accelerative metabolic activity of the animal.
