Application of 45 kg S ha-1 to each crop in the NPK+ S treatment resulted in a significant increase in available S compared to the initial content (22.5 kg ha-1). Furthermore, the application of 20 tons of FYM and 10 tons of sulfitation press mud (SPM) per hectare at recommended nutrient content (kg ha-1) to prior pearl millet had a residual effect on mustard. A significant improvement in green cobs (14.3%) and feed yield (12.7%) was recorded with application of FYM compared to no FYM treatment.

Application of FYM @ 5 t/ha + vermicompost @ 2.0 t/ha + biofertilizer gave the highest yield of brinjal and total brinjal equivalent yield. Application of PBZ at 250 ppm was effective in alleviating the salinity stress in salt sensitive rootstock Soh Sarkar.

Seedling fresh weight and quality were also higher under 40% and 50% shading compared to the control during the peak summer months (May and June). Seedlings of beds covered with netting 40% and 50% shade were ready for transplanting 3 - 4 days earlier compared to the control. Katki well, field shading with 40% and 50% black shade nets significantly reduced post-transplant mortality compared to control (unshaded).

Shading the crop with 40% and 50% black shade nets delayed first harvest by 6 and 7 days, respectively, compared to the control, but significantly increased whole plant fresh weight. When parthenocarpic cucumbers were grown in a greenhouse during the summer season, soil sterilization with formaldehyde significantly reduced post-transplant mortality compared to all other treatments.

The heart of the machine is an aqueous fertilizer dosing system that uses a gravity feed mechanism with a constant head and variable nozzle size. The share of use of hire-purchase in agricultural operations was 73% of the total annual consumption. The basic frame of the installation was made by welding two 400 mm lengths of m.s.

The lower half of the press unit is hollow concave and is made of 3 mm thick m.s. During the process of pumping water, sand is pumped and settles in the reservoir, reducing the capacity of the reservoirs.

A light-dependent resistor and a laser beam pointer are used to determine the exact location of the fruit carrier cup so that the stepper motor operates at the correct sorting point. The Farm Operation Service Unit is meeting the needs of project divisions/directorates/institutions for conducting field experiments. A massive green manure program was undertaken during kharif to enrich the soil fertility of the Institute's farm.

Pre-harvest foliar application of paclobutrazole (200 ppm) during the second week of July reduced live incidence during prolonged tree storage of the fruit and delayed harvest until 15 August. Among the different treatments, combined treatment of Debarymyces hansenii + sodium carbonate (1%) was the best for reducing rot caused by post-harvest diseases.

Effect of integrated use of organic inputs and microbial inoculants on wheat grain yield. To evaluate the effect of organic inputs on wheat yield (HD 2687), vermicompost and enriched compost were applied @ 6 t/ha along with microbial inoculants (nitrogen fixing and phosphate solubilizing and mobilizing organisms) in a field trial during rabi, 2007. Wheat grain yield was maximum with vermicompost when inoculated with Azospirillum and Azotobacter in combination.

Interestingly, microbial activity (FDA hydrolysis) of soil was found to correlate with the grain yield of rice. The increase in grain yield of rice was 108% over that of control when inoculants were applied with 80 kg N/ha.

Potato yield gradually decreased with increasing temperature due to reduced number of tubers/plant and tuber size. Further increase in temperature led to stabilization of microbial biomass as determined by PLFA. The second factor (adjustment of the family budget) accounted for 15.76% of the total variance in coping activities.

In the case of Cd, maximum adsorption on the fruit layer and seed layer was achieved in 180 minutes with particle size 40 mesh, rpm 160, adsorbent dose 0.5 – 1.0 g, pH 6.0, temperature 30oC and 50 ppm initial cadmium concentration in aqueous solution. Amounts of C evolved as CO2 increased with increasing concentrations of added leaf material, regardless of Bt or its near-isogenic line in the soil.

The calculated seed yield in the streptocycline treatment was 1650 kg/ha based on 41 g/plant compared to 1216 kg/ha (30 g/plant). Electron microscopic analysis of the inoculated plants showed the presence of PVY in the non-transgenic plants, whereas no PVY virus particles were observed in the transgenic plants. In field-grown paprika, the occurrence of pepper vein mottled virus (18-20%) and cucumber mosaic virus (25-30%) was recorded in the variety Indra.

However, in the third year trial, yields were on a par with those of the control. Mode of segregation for nematode resistance in the parents in different generations of the cross Raj 1482× Raj MR 1.

These primers were used to amplify the 3' end of the mungbean lectin cDNA. In the case of two Southern-positive lines, the observed segregation ratio was 3(HygR):1(HygS), further suggesting an insertion of the transgene at a single locus. Molecular characterization of the 288 global maize landraces (including accessions of maize's wild relative, teosintes) was completed using five fluorescently labeled microsatellite/SSR markers (phi076, phi075, phi299852, phi014 and umc2047).

One marker by RAPD primer S2083 differentiated between the parent pairs and in the progeny of the cross between Bio YSR (R) and Bio 902 (S). Moreover, the leaf area index in the branched plots was found to be marginally higher than that of the control plots.

Most farmers across states claimed a profit of 10 to 20 percent due to timely availability of price information. Farmers were organized to form a cooperative society with a total of 60 members from a cluster of ten villages in Bulandshahar district (UP). The modalities and statutes of the association were discussed and finalized with the participation of farmers. The aim of the sub-project is to develop a suitable strategy to empower rural youth.

A manual on evaluation was prepared (together with cases) and a final report on the project submitted. In all demonstrations, yield under treatment plots was higher than the control.

During rabi 2006-07 and kharif 2007, 80 demonstrations (covering 39.00 hectares) on oilseeds, pulses and grain crops were organized in farmers' fields in 7 villages of 4 blocks of Gurgaon district. Note: Low yield was obtained due to the use of organic inputs in organic farming. Women were trained to improve their skills in preparing preserves with aonla and tomatoes.

Scientific considerations on women's empowerment and care of dairy animals were carried out by the institute's researchers. A large number of farmers from different parts of the country participated in the workshop and shared their views on recent issues/schemes of the government for women empowerment.
