Management of Soybean Cyst Nematode Soybean cyst management tactics include different methods from place to place, but all have the common method of using resistant soybean cultivar and crop rotation and these are found to be more effective than others tactics.(Niblack et al., 2003, Schmitt et al., 2004a, Oyekanmi & Fawole, 2010). Host Resistance Different resistance genes have been exploited from different soybean germplasm for developing resistant soybean cultivar against Heterodera glycines (Concibido
Soybean cyst management tactics include different method from place to place, but all have the common method of using resistant soybean cultivar and crop rotation and these are found to be more effective than others.(Niblack et al., 2003, Schmitt et al., 2004). Lotus japonicus is one of the important model leguminous plant to study the interaction and compatibility of plant parasitic nematode to cause infection (Lohar & Bird, 2003). There are large number of resistant soybean cultivar to SCN and
(GET). The cost and time for sequencing and genotyping have continuously and dramatically decreased by the developments of diverse high-throughput platforms. The extensive production and active utilization of genomic resources including genomics tools and resources for crop breeding programs created a new term, genomics-assisted breeding (GAB) (Varshney et al. 2005). The landscape of soybean breeding programs has been accelerated along with advance in the genomic era. Advances in NGS technologies
Soybean is an important crop, with food, nutritional, industrial, and pharmaceutical uses. Soybean seeds contain about 40% protein and about 20% oil. They are also abundant in physiologically active metabolites such as isoflavones, lecithins, tocopherols and saponins, in addition to functional proteins and are used as an affordable source of foods that promote and maintain health (Sugano 2005). The genomic era is now under way for soybean, as for other many crops. Recently, a soybean genomics database
Genetically Modified Foods With an ever-growing population and the problems of world hunger, there has been a high demand for an increased food supply and a better food supply. Technology has been called upon to meet this challenge. The advent of genetically engineered foods, sometimes called transgenic crops or genetically modified foods, is not a new concept, but the controversy over it is. Can these "frankenfoods" be harmful to humans? What are their effects on the environment? The following
(Johnson et al. 1975). Ovipostion generally occurs on the leaf hairs and the silks (Lingren et al. 1982). This process occurs during the reproductive stage in corn and may range from several day to several weeks. Due to the high value of sweet corn, multiple insecticide applications (12 to 40 insecticide applications) for corn earworm are economically viable. However, the value of field corn is considerably lower (Rector et al. 2002).
Rome fell. Enter the Dark Ages! What was learned before was forgotten… When people forget their “history” they are doomed or, in this case, required to repeat it! 1300’s 1400’s 1500’s – European Renaissance: revival of art, literature & learning. DEVELOPMENT OF PROTECTED AGRICULTURE AND GREENHOUSES: People want to “grow out of season” (i.e., have tomatoes in Winter) or grow plants where they don’t normally grow (i.e., lettuce, a cold weather crop, in Tucson in the Summer!). Therefore, move the plant
