Role of Organic Fertilizer in Medicinal and Aromatic Crops
At the present time the unbalanced and the chemical fertilizer caused firstly quality products not only inferior but also in some cases of stores compounds toxic to enter the food chain to be health threatening human and other creatures. Therefore control for the conditions and the environment using a biological fertilizer solution constitution. Eco-friendly and bio-friendly cultivation packages of medicinal and aromatic plants can not only increase the crop yields and active constituents but can also reduce the quantities of fertilizer applied through soil. The system is became long term productive by protecting soils and enhancing their fertility ensuring productive capacity for future generations.

Integrated Farming System for Rainfed Situations
More emphasis is still required to generate a generalized model suited to various farm size By adopting IFS increase in net returns, increase in employment days and also increase in N, P, K and OC content of soil. Rainfed agriculture occupies 68% of India's cultivated area and supports 40% of the human and 60% of the livestock population. It produces 44% of the food requirement, thus has and will continue to play a critical role in India's food security. IFS may be defined as linking together two or more normally separate components or enterprises which then become subsystems of a whole farming systems.

Agro-Tourism for Doubling Farmers Income
The income level of an average Indian farmer is much below that of the population in any other sector. A complimentary component of tourism can help in the establishing sustainable farm business and the boom in the tourism sector can prove to be a boon for the farmers. Agro-tourism provides enough flexibility to the farmers to amalgamate tourism with agriculture as primary, supplementary or complimentary enterprise.

Biopesticides in Horticultural Crops
The modern agricultural practices such as increased use of fertilizers, pesticides, high yielding varieties etc., coupled with intensive and extensive cultivation of crops have contributed for increased agricultural production in the country during past 3 decades, but at the same time a number of new problems have emerged especially in the field of plant protection. Over dependence on pesticides has led to problems such as development of resistance in pest species, resurgence in pest populations, emergence of new crop pests, environmental pollution and disruption in biodiversity. Moreover, with increased cost of crop protection, the net income per unit area in case of crops like cotton, paddy and certain vegetable has come down sharply, making production of these crops uneconomical.

Whitefly as a Vector of Okra Yellow Vein Mosaic Disease (OYVMD) in Okra
OYVMD is one of the major constraints in okra cultivation in India. The loss in marketable yield was estimated at 50-94 % depending upon the stage of crop growth at which the infection occurs (Sastry and Singh 1974, Pun and Doraiswamy 1999). If plants are infected within 20 days after germination, their growth is retarded; few leaves and fruits are formed and loss may be about 94%. The virus is neither sap transmissible nor seed. The only known method of transmission is through whitefly (Bemisia tabaci). Whitefly is one of the most important sucking pests that inflicts heavy damage to the crop not only through direct loss of plant vitality by feeding on cell sap but also by transmitting yellow vein mosaic viruses.

Whitefly as a Vector of Okra Enation Leaf curl Disease (OELCuD) in Okra
OELCuD is an emerging problem for okra cultivation and was first reported from Karnataka (Bangalore) in southern India in the early 1980s. The disease can cause significant yield losses, ranging from 30 to 100 %, depending upon the age of the plant at the time of infection.

Plant Growth Regulators In Quality Production Of Vegetable Crops
Till recently, enhanced crop yields were achieved through the use of fertilizers, pesticides, better crop management and exploitation of genetic resources to develop highly yielding varieties. Plant growth regulators are one of the emerging biotechnologies that could possibly boost crop productivity. Plant growth regulators are chemicals, which are naturally occurring endogenous plant hormones or are synthetic plant growth regulators, which have potential for improving the productivity of different crop species. These chemicals are applied directly to the target plant to change its life process leading to improve the quality of its produce. It is generally suggested that synthetic plant growth regulators cause their effects through changing the endogenous levels of naturally occurring hormones and hence modify growth and development of the plant in a desired director and to a desired extent
