  • No Photo Almond Cultivation, Uses and Varieties    By: Dr. A. K. Trivedi

    A detailed article about Almond cultivation practices, nutritional value, uses and suitable varieties in Central Himalayan region. Horticultural crops form a crucial part of the agricultural production. India is the second largest producer of fruits in the world. Cultivation as well as processing of these crops generates significant employment opportunities. Fruits are rich source of vitamins, minerals, proteins and carbohydrates that are essential in human diet. Hence, fruits need to be incorporated as essential constituent of human diet in order to avoid malnutrition. In terms of production per hectare, output of horticultural crops is more than 6 times that of cereals. Although, during the past two decades, area, production, productivity, availability and export of horticultural crops has increased manifold, which provided ample opportunities for employment generation and effective land use planning. But some important fruit crops like almond are not popular among farmers which have ample scope in Central Himalayan Region (CHR) besides having high nutritional and antioxidant value. >> Category: Agriculture

  • No Photo Production of Quality Planting Material of Horticultural Crops    By: Dr. A. K. Trivedi

    Availability of planting material of good quality is one of the most important elements of successful horticultural production. Planting material available to small-scale farmers in different areas is often of insufficient quality, which undermines potential yield and performance of crop production. Raising the quality planting material locally to be used by local farmers is itself a challenge. Moreover, availability of suitable climatic conditions ensures that an area is suited or not to produce almost all the fruit crops. Therefore, awareness and technical knowledge for production of planting material of horticultural crops may revolutionize economy of farmers. >> Category: Agriculture

Its An A Wonderful for A Student

Article: DNA Sequencing: Maxam Gilbert Method - Comment by: Anuran Kashyap - 2015-03-24

The example cited is wrong. Upon electrophoresis and subsequent detection, the 12th position has dark bands forming for all the reactions indicating that all the bases are present at the 12th site, which obviously is not possible. Much so that while writing the sequence, the author has intentionally not written any base for 12th position because of the ambiguity.
