Protected cultivation of tomato, capsicum and cucumber under Kashmir valley conditions
Kouser Parveen Wani, Pradeep Kumar Singh, Asima Amin, Faheema Mushtaq and Zahoor Ahmad Dar

India is the second largest producer of vegetable crops in the world. However, its vegetable production is much less than the requirement if balanced diet is provided to every individual. There are different ways and means to achieve this target, e.g., bringing additional area under vegetable crops using hybrid seeds, use of improved agro-techniques. Another potential approach is perfection and promotion of protected cultivation of vegetables. In hilly areas parts of the country especially...

Pesticide caused disruption of corpus luteum leading elevated level of estrogen in mice
Smriti Rupam, Ranjit Kumar, A. Nath, P. Rani and J. K. Singh

Over the past several decades, awareness has been growing regarding the reproductive health effects of exposures to certain chemicals. Some pesticides may interfere with the female hormonal function, which may lead to negative effects on the reproductive system through disruption of the hormonal balance necessary for proper functioning. Toxicants that interfere with ovarian function can act directly on the ovary or indirectly through demonstrating their influence at the hormonal level. In...

Effect of concurrent strength and endurance training on selected physiological variables
P. Senthil, S. Arul and P. Karthikeyan

The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of concurrent strength and endurance training on selected physiological variables namely Cardio-respiratory endurance and Resting pulse rate. To achieve this purpose forty students studying in the department of physical education and sports sciences, Annamalai University, Annamalai Nagar, TamilNadu and India were selected as subjects at random. Their age ranged between eighteen to twenty two years. The selected subjects were divided into...

Experimental study on high strength concrete columns with GFRP wraps under compression
Jagannathan Saravanan, K.Suguna and P.N.Raghunath

This paper presents the results of an experimental study on high strength concrete columns with externally confined using GFRP wraps. A total of seven specimens of 150 mm diameter and 900 mm height were cast and tested. One specimen was used as reference and the remaining six specimens were wrapped with three GFRP materials having different thickness. The columns were tested under uni-axial compression up to failure. Necessary measurements were taken for each load increment. The HSC columns...

Growth performance of Indian major carps in abandoned and unproductive china clay mines of India: A new approach
Basudev Mandal and Bidhan Chandra Patra

The present studies focused on the growth performance of Indian major carps in abandoned china clay mines of Birbhum district, West Bengal. The results obtained during the experimental trial from eleven months in terms of changes in soil, water and biological characteristics of the ‘Khadan’ or china clay pits, growth of cultured fish species (Catla catla, Labeo rohita and Cirrhinus mrigala) and production potential. The growth rate of Catla catla is comparatively higher than Labeo rohita and...

Comparative assessment of cellulolytic potential of two Streptomyces strains isolated from municipal wastes
Prasad, P., Bedi, S. and Tanuja

The study was aimed at screening promising cellulolytic isolates obtained from municipal wastes by using Congo red test made on carboxymethyl cellulose plates. FPase and CMCase activity of the strains were assayed on the basis of release of glucose that was detected using dinitrosalicylic acid method. In the present investigation Streptomyces albospinus (MTCC No. 8768) and Streptomyces somaliensis (MTCC No. 8769) were selected for their cellulolytic activity on the basis of the Congo red...

Potential use of glycogen contents as biomarker of nickel chloride stress on Indian major carp Labeo rohita (Hamilton)
Moorthikumar, K. and Muthulingam, M

The aquatic habitats are being contaminated with heavy metals due to industrialization and other anthropogenic activities. Aquatic animals inhabiting polluted water bodies tend to accumulate many chemicals in high concentrations even when the ambient environmental contamination levels are low potentially hazardous situation for the entire food chain. The metal works industries release a good amount of heavy metals like mercury, cadmium, manganese, nickel and chromium which ultimately fall...
