Banana bract mosaic virus (BBrMV) is a recently described virus of banana which contributed to yield reduction by 5 to 36 per cent and is a barrier to international exchange of germplasm. There is a no effective measure to control this virus, only by routine virus indexing of planting material can protect the spreading of this virus. Currently ELISA and real time P...

DNA barcoding is a novel system designed to provide rapid, accurate, and automatable species identification using short DNA sequences from a standardized region of the genome. It helps in precise identification of species that can be applicable as a diagnostic tool for quarantine and other pest management activities. DNA barcoding is based on the variation on the s...

The study on “Identification and characterization of traditional rice genotypes for drought tolerance through proteomic approach’’ was carried out during 2013-2015. Traditional rice genotypes were collected from RARS, Pattambi and Ambalavayal which was further screened and evaluated for drought tolerance. The identified tolerant and susceptible genotypes was furthe...

Cocoa (Theobroma cacao L.) is a diploid species (2n = 2X = 20) with a small genome size of 380Mbp. It belongs to the family of Malvaceae (alternatively Sterculianceae). Theobroma cacao L. is a highly cross pollinated crop due to its peculiar flower structure and existence of self-incompatibility. Self-incompatibility is exploited in hybridization process of breedin...

Rice {0ryza sativa L.) is one of the most important food crop grown across the globe. The crop is cultivated in diverse environments ranging from uplands to deep water ecosystems. Drought is one of the major constraints for rice production in rainfed lowlands. In the present scenario of climate change, the frequency of drought is more likely to increase in the ...

Rice (Oryza sativa L.), is vulnerable to a number of pest and diseases. Among them sheath blight disease caused by Rhizoctonia solani, and insect pest, brown planthopper (BPH) (Nilapavata lugens) are the most devastating agents and major challenge to rice cultivation. Approximately 30 per cent yield loss has been reported due to above said disease and pest. In this...

Plant-growth-promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) are associated with plant roots and augment plant productivity and immunity; however, recent work by several groups shows that PGPR also elicit so-called ‘induced systemic tolerance’ to salt and drought. Some PGPR also elicit physical or chemical changes related to plant defense, a process referred to as ‘induced systemic...
