    Particles of tomato golden mosaic virus (TGMV), purified by an improved procedure, were used to prepare an antiserum which in gel double-diffusion tests with homologous virus gave a single precipitin line and had a titre of 1/256. TGMV was shown to be serologically related to another geminivirus, cassava latent virus, and distantly related to a leafhopper-transmitted g minivirus, beet curly top virus. No relationship could be detected to four other leaf hopper-transmitted geminiviruses. Golden mosaic disease of the tomato Lycopersicon esculentum Mill is a serious problem in Brazilian horticulture (Costa, 1976). The causal agent, tomato golden mosaic virus (TGMV), is...

  4. Year Embedded), S.D.C.O.E,

    Kalyani N. Satone; Madhuri M Pal
    This paper investigates embedded databases for the MicroBaseJ project. The paper aims at the development of an integrated database and a user interface for a typical 3G mobile phone with Java MIDP2 capability. One of the key objectives is to target a generic solution. A number of commercial sectors could benefit from this solution such as horticulture, building management, pollution/water management, industry etc. Four embedded databases based on J2ME have been investigated. Two of the four have been evaluated and analyzed. The size of processed data is limited to 20000 records when using the wireless toolkit simulator and 11000 records...

  5. Determining the Difficulties of Ornamental Horticulture Programs

    Presented To; Elizabeth Basham
    The purpose of this senior project was to develop a survey to determine the difficulties that high school ornamental horticulture instructors were facing with their programs. Many schools throughout California have faced difficulties with their programs and have had to limit the offerings of the courses that would have been available to their students. Based upon the results from the survey it was determined that many of the instructors felt that their programs had been declining in success due to budget limitations, student involvement, standardized testing requirements and community support. The results of the survey can be utilized to aid...

  7. Design of Automatic Irrigation System for Small Farmers in Rwanda

    Gasore Geoffrey; Munyaneza Jean De Dieu; Ngendabanga Jean Pierre; Twibanire Aimable
    In Rwanda, agricultural industry depends on seasonal rain, and this has been a great challenge to agriculture in Rwanda. The designed sample of Photovoltaic pumping system is for irrigation on a piece of land, with 100 m2 field fed by underground water tank of 8 meters of elevation collected during rainy seasons. The adapted 100 m2 field is based on the fact that Rwanda is a densely po-pulated country, also is adapted to be used especially in horticulture to increase exportation. In this system, a photovoltaic system is used as a power source; a pump is coupled with electric mo-tor...

  8. Histology and ash analysis of Gentiana kurroo Royle – an endangered medicinal plant

    Mc Behera; R Raina; Krishi Vigyan Kendra; At Paljhor; District Boudh
    Gentiana kurroo Royle, a potent temperate Indian bitter drug, is valued as bitter tonic, antiperiodic, expectorant, antibilious, astringent, stomachic, anthelmintic, blood purifier and carminative. Because of high demand and limited supply from natural resource, it is known to be adulterated with the roots of Picrorrhiza kurroa, Gentiana tenella, G decumbens etc. A perusal of literature reveals that no pharmacognostic tool is available for proper diagnosis of crude drugs of karru. Keeping this in view the present study was carried out in the Department of Forest Products, College of Forestry, Dr YS Parmar university of horticulture and forestry, Solan, HP. On...

    The experiment was conducted at Ornamental Horticulture Nursery of the University of Agriculture, Peshawar in July 2008 to study the effect of okra seed priming with different phosphorus concentrations (DAP) at various durations on seedling emergence and some related traits. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Complete Block Design in split plot arrangement, with three replications. Four DAP concentrations i.e. 0.5%, 1%, 1.5%, 2%with difference soaking durations from 0 to 48 hours with 4 hours interval. Germination percentage (%), survival percentage (%), number of days to emergence, number of days to first flowering, plant height (cm), were significantly affected...

  15. Herramientas biotecnológicas aplicadas a la mejora genética de melocotón y nectarina

    Pérez Jiménez, Margarita
    The world population is currently growing in a global food crisis framework, in which science has to rise to the occasion. In the last decades, plant science has offered alternatives to the world, including a deep understanding and improvement of crop quality. Several techniques have been developed in order to increase production or quality by means of adapting horticulture to environmental conditions. Plant breeders have been searching for crop improvements in terms of solutions for different problems, namely diseases, production or postharvest problems. But breeders have also varied objectives such as adaptation of new cultivars to growing areas, disease resistance,...

  19. Ora et labora: los jardines monacales en el Alto Medioevo

    Martínez, Adriana
    El huerto-jardín en el Alto Medioevo manifiesta la capacidad humana para domesticar una naturaleza salvaje y hostil y para transformarla en un lugar apacible, acogedor. Tanto en el ámbito citadino en las casas privadas, como en el ámbito rural en los monasterios, en estos recintos se cultivaban variados vegetales, legumbres, árboles frutales y también flores, ya sea para el consumo como para la delectación. Ahora bien, nuestra propuesta se centrará en los huertosjardines que integraban la estructura monástica en cuanto espacios privilegiados en donde se pone en acto la consigna que sustenta la Regla de san Benito, el ora et...

    producers Abstract: The European Union (EU) has been in recent years the biggest market for agricultural and horticultural seeds. Although, in the recently enlarged EU, the branch has been developing very well, still there are challenges that Europe should be ready to face. The seed production procedures need to be simplified to face the increasing pressure of the US seed exporting companies and organizations. There must be some liberation in transgenic cultivars registration and seed production. One should be more aware of the fast coming globalization of the sector and consequences of intellectual property rights. At the same time some...
