  • Phytoremediation of Indoor Air Pollutants: Harnessing the potential of
           Plants beyond Aesthetics

    • Authors: Shalini Jhanji, Ujjalpreet Kaur Dhatt
      Pages: 131 - 143
      Abstract: Indoor air pollution has emerged as a major threat to human health worldwide that needs to be dealt urgently. The present review is an effort to overview the different indoor air pollutants (CO2, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) like formaldehyde, benzene, nitrous oxide, trichloroethylene, fluorine, ammonia, radon, aldehyde, hydrocarbons etc.) their hazardous effects on human health, potential of indoor plants in their remediation and their practical utility. Besides providing oxygen to breathe, multifaceted roles of indoor plants have been well documented. Plants were used since decades for indoor decorations based on their aesthetic value, but now studies are focused on screening plant species for their efficiency in absorption of indoor air pollutants. The basis for phytoremediation is the potent efficiency of some plants to assimilate, degrade, or modify toxic pollutants into non-toxic ones. Phytoremediation seems to be the key solution to improve indoor air quality as it has many potential advantages (simple, potentially cheap, and easily implemented) in comparison to other traditional or latest methods. Breathing walls, portable air filters for rooms or whole house filtration through heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems are some of the technologies developed, to reduce indoor air pollution and improve indoor air quality but all these are costly, resource consuming and still there is question on their efficiency. Detailed account of morphological, anatomical and molecular mechanisms underlying plant leaves and leaf associated microbes in reduction of pollutants have been reviewed that could help in developing cost effective and eco friendly remediation technologies. This review gives a brief discussion about air phytoremediation to improve effectiveness of this technology in practical use.

  • Response of Yield and Fruit Quality to Foliar Application of
           Micronutrients in Lemon [Citrus limon (L.) Burm.] cv. Assam Lemon

    • Authors: K H A Sheikh, Barun Singh, Songthat William Haokip, Shankar Kripa, Raju Debbarma, Gaitri Devi Athokpam, T H Nengparmoi
      Pages: 144 - 151
      Abstract: Assam lemon [Citrus limon (L.) Burm.], an indigenous lemon cultivar of Assam, is widely cultivated in warm southern slopes of the Himalayas in North-Eastern India. Since this cultivar of lemon is having a prominent trait of bearing fruits in several flushes throughout the year, it is essential to provide sufficient nutrition for obtaining optimum yield with good quality fruits. In the current experiment, a randomized block design having twelve treatments with three replications was followed to find out the response of lemon fruit yield and quality to foliar application of micronutrients during the year 2019. Among all, the treatment ZnSO4 (0.2%) + FeSO4 (0.2%) + Borax (0.2%) + CuSO4 (0.2%) gave the best performance in improving the yield and quality of fruits. The highest number of fruits per plant at the time of harvesting (73), yield per plant (11.5 kg), fruit fresh weight (158 g), fruit length (9.60 cm), fruit diameter (5.80 cm), juice content (152 mL/fruit), TSS (6.40 °B), ascorbic acid (49.10 mg/100g), total sugar (6.30%), reducing sugar (3.90%), non-reducing sugar (2.40%) with lowest titratable acidity
      (3.13%) were obtained which revealed that the yield and fruit quality of lemon depends on the application of different micronutrients.

  • Studies on High Density Planting and Nutrient Requirement of Banana in
           Different States of India

    • Authors: Sanjit Debnath, F K Bauri, S Swain, A N Patel, A R Patel, N B Shaik, V P Bhalerao, K Baruah, P R Manju, A Suma, R Menon, Sridhar Gutam, Prakash Patil
      Pages: 152 - 163
      Abstract: An experiment was conducted under the ICAR-All India Coordinated Research Project on Fruits to study the high-density planting (HDP) and nutrient requirement of banana at six research centres across the country, including Bhubaneswar (Orissa), Gandevi (Gujarat), Jalgaon (Maharashtra), Jorhat (Assam), Kannara (Kerala) and Mohanpur (West Bengal) to enable higher productivity of banana and profit to farmers. The objective of this study was to explore the possibility of increasing productivity through the intervention of only per unit plant population (through planting system) and level of nutrition, but without any interference to the regional choices of variety (eg., choice variety Nendran for Kerala or Martaman for West Bengal), production system (mono/poly- clone, single/multi-year plantation, and POP of respective states), for which national productivity ranges are much skewed also. Results indicated that intervention of only plant density could increase the productivity of banana within the existing system of production and choice of a variety of different regions or states. The experiment was laid out in RBD with four planting densities (S1P2, S1P3, S2P2 and S2P3, where S1=2m x 3m, S2=1.8m x 3.6m, P2=2 suckers/hill, P3=3 suckers/hill), three nutrition levels (F1, F2 and F3 , which is 100%, 75% and 50% of RDF) and one with region-specific conventional planting density and nutrition (100% of RDF) practices as control. The results of this experiment showed that HDP (S1P3, 5000 plants /ha) in banana, accommodating three suckers per hill at 2m x 3m spacing increased productivity over the conventional system at the Bhubaneswar, Gandevi, Jorhat, Kannara and Mohanpur centres. The increase in productivity due to HDP (5,000/ha) over control was 28.9% (RDF 25%) to 50.6% (RDF 100%) at Bhubaneswar, 15.2% (RDF 25%) to 21.9% (RDF 100%) at Gandevi, 4.0% (RDF 25%) to 7.4% (RDF 100%) at Jorhat, 33.5% (RDF 25%) to 43.5% (RDF 100%) at Kannara and 46.5% (RDF 25%) to 79.0% (RDF 100%) at Mohanpur centre. The nutrient requirement under HDP was 100% RDF at Kannara, 75% RDF at Bhubaneswar and Mohanpur and 50% RDF at Gandevi and Jorhat centres, which indicates a saving in cost of fertilizer input by 25% -50%. It is, therefore, recommended for HDP (5000 plants/ha) in banana, accommodating three suckers per hill at 2m x 3m (6.6 ft x 3.8 ft) spacing with 50% RDF in the agro-climatic regions of Gandevi and Jorhat, with 75% RDF in the agro-climatic regions of Bhubaneswar and Mohanpur and with 100% RDF in the agro-climatic region of Kannara in order to ensure higher productivity and profit to farmers.

  • Mineral nutrient composition in leaf and root tissues of fifteen
           polyembryonic mango genotypes, grown under varying levels of salinity

    • Authors: P K Nimbolkar, Reju M Kurian, L. R. Varalakshmi, K. K. Upreti, R. H. Laxman, D. Kalaivanan
      Pages: 164 - 176
      Abstract: Mango (Mangifera indica L.) is a salt sensitive crop and its cultivation in salt affected area is declining day by day. There is a need to find out the rootstocks to sustain under saline conditions which can be used for commercial cultivation of superior cultivars through grafting. To achieve this, the present study was carried out to understand the salt tolerance and sensitive nature of fifteen polyembryonic mango rootstock seedlings (EC-95862, Bappakkai, Vellaikolamban, Nekkare, Turpentine, Muvandan, Kurukkan, Kensington, Olour, Manipur, Deorakhio, Vattam, Mylepelian, Sabre and Kitchener) which were exposed to 0 mM, 25 mM, 50 mM and 100 mM concentration of NaCl+CaCl2 (1:1) salt. The outcome of this study revealed that there was reduction in K+, Ca++, Mg++, Fe++ and Zn++ while the content of Cu++ and Mn++ in both leaf and root tissues were found to increase with gradual increase in salt concentration from 0 to 100 mM. The overall results of this study revealed that the salinity stress caused the alterations in mineral nutrient composition of polyembryonic mango genotypes. Among the fifteen genotypes the seedlings of Turpentine, Deorakhio, Olour and Bappakkai respond better in maintaining the mineral nutrient status in leaf and root tissues under higher level of salinity.

  • Optimization of GA3 concentration for improved bunch and berry quality in
           grape cv. Crimson Seedless (Vitis vinifera L)

    • Authors: Satisha J, Sampathkumar Pamu, Kaushal Kishor Upreti
      Pages: 177 - 184
      Abstract: Crimson Seedless is a coloured seedless grape, gaining popularity in India for its attractive colour, bunch and berry quality with better shelf life. In cultivation of any seedless grape variety, application of GA3 at different stages is very much essential to produce good quality berries and bunches. However, this variety is highly sensitive to excess application of GA3 and practicing GA3 schedule similar to that of Thompson Seedless grapes adversely affects bunch quality. Hence, there was a need to standardize mild dose of GA3 just for rachis elongation which will help to reduce bunch compactness to a greater extent. Hence, an experiment was initiated to standardize concentration of GA3 for rachis elongation of Crimson Seedless grapes. Three different concentrations of GA3 {viz., 5 ppm (T1), 7.5 ppm (T2) and 10 ppm (T3)} were sprayed during pre bloom stage and compared with unsprayed control (T4). Among different treatments, pre-bloom spray of GA3@5 ppm could produce less compact bunches with highest average bunch weight, berry weight, berry length and TSS. However, bunches sprayed with 7.5 ppm and 10 ppm GA3 could also produce good quality bunches average berry weight and TSS was less. Because of severe coiling of rachis at 7.5 ppm and 10 ppm GA3 spraying, bunches were too straggly compared to spraying of 5 ppm GA3.  The control bunches without GA3 spray produced very compact clusters with less average bunch weight, berry weight, berry diameter and berry length.

  • RGAP molecular marker for resistance against yellow mosaic disease in
           ridge gourd [Luffa acutangula (L.) Roxb.]

    • Authors: Manpreet Kaur, Varalakshmi B, Kumar M, Lakshmana Reddy D C, Mahesha B, Pitchhaimuthu M
      Pages: 185 - 192
      Abstract: Yellow mosaic disease caused by Tomato leaf curl New Delhi virus (ToLCNDV) causes 100 percent losses in ridge gourd under epidemic conditions, particularly in the tropics and sub-tropics of India. Plant breeding approaches led by the marker-assisted selection have gained increased momentum in virus resistance breeding to hasten the development of resistant varieties. In the present study, an effort has been made to identify molecular markers linked to yellow mosaic disease resistance loci in an F2 population derived from a cross between susceptible ‘Arka Prasan’ and resistant ‘IIHR-Sel-1’ of ridge gourd. All the molecular markers were amplified in parents, and one polymorphic marker clearly distinguished the contrasting parents. The primers LaRGAP 63 produced a polymorphic DNA fragment that co-segregated with yellow mosaic disease reaction phenotypically in the F2 population. The identified marker will be helpful to the breeders for introgression of resistance loci into the elite background.

  • Genetic Divergence Study in Bitter gourd (Momordica charantia L.)

    • Authors: Nithinkumar KR, Aravinda Kumar J. S, Varalakshmi B, Sadanand K Mushrif, Ramachandra R. K, Prashanth S. J
      Pages: 193 - 198
      Abstract: The genetic divergence of forty bitter gourd genotypes was studied for sixteen different parameters by adopting Mahalanobis D2 statistics using Tocher's method. The genotypes were grouped into six clusters irrespective of geographic divergence, indicating no parallelism between geographic and genetic diversity. A maximum of 32 genotypes entered in cluster I, followed by 4 genotypes in cluster II. The cluster III, IV, V and VI had single genotypes each. The maximum inter-cluster distance was obtained between cluster II and VI (1620.05) while minimum distance was between III and V (103.32). Cluster V followed by cluster VI showed superiority for yield and other desirable traits, which indicate the potentiality of these diverse genotype collection for providing basic material for future breeding programmes.

  • Combining ability studies to develop superior hybrids in bell pepper
           (Capsicum annuum var. grossum L.)

    • Authors: Smaranika Mishra, Varsha V., Lingaiah H.B. , Venugopalan R., Keshav Rao V., Jyothi Kattegoudar, Madhavi Reddy K.
      Pages: 199 - 205
      Abstract: General combining ability (GCA) among parents and specific combining ability (SCA) of crosses were studied to identify best crosses for growth and yield traits in bell pepper. Experimental material included 21 F1 hybrids developed by crossing seven parents in half di-allel mating design. Parents and crosses were planted in randomized block design during Rabi 2019 for estimating their combining ability. Among parents, Arka Mohini showed good GCA effects for most of the traits (number of secondary branches, early flowering and harvesting, fruit weight and yield). Among crosses, Arka Mohini × CW308, Arka Mohini × California Wonder and Yolo Wonder × California Wonder were identified as potential one for yield attributing traits based on SCA effects.

  • SSR marker development in Abelmoschus esculentus (L.) Moench using
           transcriptome sequencing and genetic diversity studies

    • Authors: M Gayathri, M Pitchaimuthu, Kundapura Ravishankar
      Pages: 206 - 214
      Abstract: Okra [Abelmoschus esculentus (L.) Moench] also known as bhindi or lady’s finger is an important vegetable crop in India, West Africa, South Africa, Brazil, USA and Turkey. It belongs to the family Malvaceae. Okra is mainly grown in tropics and subtropics of the world. The studies regarding the molecular marker development are very limited; still there is no SSR development from comprehensive transcriptome data in this crop. This study presents the first comprehensive transcriptome data, using RNA from different parts of okra such as root, stem, leaf, bud, flower, different stages of developing pod and from twenty days old plantlets of heat, drought and salt stressed. A total of 10,492 SSRs were identified in this study. Among these tri repeats (2112) were found to be predominant followed by di (1285), tetra (149), penta (24) and hexa. Thirty four SSRs were standardized for PCR and screened for 36 okra genotypes and accessions. Among these 18 SSR primers were found to be highly polymorphic with the PIC values more than 0.5. And the overall results of analysis showed that expected heterozygosity ranged from 0.000 to 0.971 with a mean of 0.593; the values for observed heterozygosity ranged from 0.000 to 0.794 with the mean of 0.254; the number of allele per locus ranged from 1 to 30 and the Polymorphic Information Content (PIC) ranged from 0.000 to 0.940 with the mean value of 0.5546. The genic SSR markers developed will help in germplasm characterization mapping, genetic diversity studies, molecular assisted breeding and also in gene discovery.

      Abstract: Generation mean analysis study in bitter gourd was undertaken using six basic generations viz. P1, P2, F1, F2, B1 and B2 population derived from crossing gynoecious line (IIHRBTGy - 491) with two monoecious lines (IIHR Sel -19 -1 and IIHR Sel-78-4). The gynoecious parent was superior for node for first female flowering, number of fruits and yield/plant whereas the monoecious parents were superior for fruit length, fruit diameter and fruit weight. The superior performance of F1 over better parent indicated over-dominance of these traits. F2 plants were significantly diverse. B1 and B2 population exhibited mean value closure to their recurrent parents. Significance of one or more scaling tests, i.e. A, B, C and D in most of the traits revealed the presence of epistasis in both the crosses except for node bearing 1st male flower. Days to 1st female flower opening, node bearing 1st female flower, fruit diameter and yield showed presence of duplicate epistasis whereas days to 1st male flower opening, number of fruits per plant, fruit length and fruit weight showed complimentary epistasis in IIHRBTGy - 491 × IIHR Sel -19 -1 cross. Node bearing 1st female flower, fruit length, fruit diameter and yield showed presence of duplicate epistasis whereas days to 1st female flower opening, days to 1st male flower opening, number of fruits and fruit weight showed complimentary epistasis in IIHRBTGy - 491× IIHR Sel-78-4 cross. Additive gene action may be predominant for inheritance of node bearing 1st male flower.

      Abstract: An experiment was carried out to evaluate an advance breeding line of tuberose double type IIHR-4 along with check for flowering, yield and resistance to root knot nematode and Alternaria leaf burn disease. The hybrid selection IIHR-4 was developed through hybridization by crossing Mexican Single x Pearl Double, followed by selection. Double type tuberose IIHR-4 was found to be novel with better flowering and quality traits such as short spike (62.00 cm), rachis length (25.59cm), diameter of floret (4.47cm) and number of florets per spike (50.75). The spikes of IIHR-4 exhibited more number of florets open at a time in spike (7.10) with the shorter internodal length of 3.45cm. The florets are with shorter length (5.22cm) arranged very compactly on the spike making IIHR-4 ideal as cut flower. IIHR-4 was found to be highly resistant to root knot nematode Meloidogyne incognita under field conditions and tolerant to Alternaria leaf burn disease.

  • Influence of phenophase based irrigation and fertigation schedule on
           vegetative performance of chrysanthemum (Dendranthema grandiflora Tzelev.)
           var. Marigold

      Abstract: The vegetative performance of chrysanthemum var. Marigold with respect to phenophase based irrigation and fertigation schedule was evaluated. In the vegetative phase, the maximum plant height (62.44 cm), number of secondary branches per plant (42.65), number of primary branches per plant (10.85), leaf area (3793.81 cm2) was recorded in the treatment combination. Whereas, the maximum average plant spread (47.98 cm) was in I1F4, number of leaves per plant (217.76) was in I3F1. Scheduling irrigation regime I3-(0.8 ER each at vegetative, bud and flowering phases) in combination with weekly application of (F4) 75:112.5:75 kg NPK/ha in three splits 40:20:20 % NPK (vegetative phase), 30:40:40 % NPK (bud phase) 30:40:40% NPK (flowering phase) through fertigation recorded maximum loose flower yield (26.27 t/ha) and this can be correlated with increased values for most of the vegetative parameters that directly influence the yield of the crop. Hence the above was observed best treatment over other treatment combinations with respect to vegetative parameters of chrysanthemum var. Marigold.
