      Abstract: An experiment was carried out on effect of spacing and fertilizer levels on yield, quality and nutrient uptake of fennel (Foeniculum vulgare Mill.) under northern dry zone of Karnataka. Among various spacing levels, 60 x 30 cm spacing recorded highest seed yield. The highest essential oil content and essential oil yield was obtained in 60 x 40 cm spacing. Nutrient uptake was found maximum in 60 x 30 cm spacing. The maximum seed yield, essential oil content, oil yield and total nutrient uptake was obtained by supplying 100:50:40 NPK kg ha-1 and it was at par with 90:40:30 N, P2O5, K2O kg ha-1 respectively

  • Performance of Chilli (Capsicum annuum L.) hybrids for yield and quality

    • Authors: Vinay Verma, Amit Vikram, Yash Pal Sharma, Ramesh K Bhardwaj, Rajesh K Dogra, Meenu Gupta, Shalini Singh
      Abstract: Twenty-eight F1 combinations of chilli (Capsicum annuum L.) obtained from half-diallel cross along with eight diverse parents were evaluated in a field study to elucidate the information on the extent of mean performance of various horticultural traits. The analysis revealed that all the genotypes possessed wide spectrum of variability and showed significant differences for parents and hybrids for the traits studied. For parents UHF CHI 13 (216.20), UHF CHI 15 (193.80), UHF CHI 5 (139.00) and for hybrids H1 (182.60), H9 (181.40) and H7 (172.80) hold highest fruit count per plant. The parents UHF CHI 5 (1047.13 g), UHF CHI 15 (949.62 g) and UHF CHI 7 (912.61 g) and cross combinations H17 (1535.10 g), H8 (1320.00), H6 (1229.76) and H18 (967.60) recorded the high ripe fruit yield per plant. As for earliness, parents UHF CHI 5 (43.33), UHF CHI 11 (45.00), UHF CHI 7 (45.33) and hybrids H27 (42.67), H26 (43.00) and UH28 (43.00) took minimum days for flowering. For pungency UHF CHI 12 (0.28 %), UHF CHI 13 (0.26 %), DKC-8 (0.24 %) and H23 (0.33 %), H5 (0.31 %), H26 (0.26 %) recorded high capsaicin content.

  • Characterization of Algerian turmeric and ginger based on their
           physicochemical, functional and biological properties

    • Authors: Farida Benmeziane, Derradji, Sara Aoun
      Abstract: The purpose of the study was to characterize (physicochemical properties, functional properties, antioxidant contents and biological activities) of two Algerian spices, turmeric and ginger. The results showed the richness of both spices in phytochemicals especially in polyphenols. Compared to ginger, which showed greater affinity for oil, turmeric powder had more affinity for water. In addition, turmeric swelled more (14.17 ml g-1) than ginger powder (8.33 ml g-1). The methanolic extract showed the highest total antioxidant activities of 470.72 ± 3.13 and 228.73 ± 42.19 AAE 100 g-1 for turmeric and ginger respectively. The aqueous extracts didn’t show anticoagulant activity while, the methanolic and acetone extracts showed anticoagulant activity in a dose – dependent manner. As the butanolic extracts prevented the blood clot from forming, it could be used for medical application in future. Therefore, turmeric and ginger are a rich source of bioactive molecules and have functional and biological properties to be exploited in the food and pharmaceutical industry.
