Fertilization results in fusion of two sets of hereditary information to create new organism. DNA is master molecule responsible for passage of phenotypic traits from generation to generation. DNA in chromosomes is divided into functional subunits called genes. Genes play vital role in heredity, mutation, variation and evolutionary development of species.

It is well established that NO plays essential role in animal fertilization and embryogenesis. In plants, NO has proven roles in various plant processes ranging from seed germination to reproduction. NO mediated protein modification plays important role in seed germination. . This article encompasses a brief note on the significance of NO in different plant processes and an outline of the biosynthesis of NO is also described.

Wheat is one of the major cereal crop being challenged by several pathogens. To cope with pathogens, the varieties needs to be equipped with resistance gene. The transfer of genes through conventional method needs more time and resource. The development of molecular markers has helped the precise and rapid transfer of resistance genes in wheat varieties.

Doubled haploid technique is becoming one of the popular and efficient method to develop inbred parent in maize. Identification of several superior haploid inducer has added advantage in using this technique. The parental lines developed using this technique needs least time and also saves logistics of several generations required for getting homozygosity.

Diet plays a pivotal role in health aspect and prevention of various diseases in poultry. There are various dietary factors but among all of them antioxidant play important role for animal survival, improve health status, prevention from various diseases reproductive and productive performance. This is largely because of the detrimental effects of free radicals and toxic products of their metabolism on various metabolic processes. Antioxidant molecule which involved in the prevention from detrimental effect from free radicals, cellular damage, toxic product of their metabolism, aging and variety of diseases.

Indian economy is mainly based on agriculture and climate change is a major threat to it. The Indian agriculture is mainly rainfed and hence depends on the extent and distribution of rainfall patterns. Climate change leads to rise in temperature, high intensity rainfall events, extreme weather events which adversely affect the productivity of major crops. These climate change impacts on agriculture can be mitigated through use of climate resilient technologies.

Antibacterial affects Historically it is believed that Louis Pasteur first scientist who demonstrate the antimicrobial effects of garlic ‘juices’ in 1858.Garlic as natural feed additives in poultry nutrition may be of great benefit and value especially for broiler growers.Now a days farmers are already using this specie in scavenger poultry feed due to having properties like flavoring agent in different dishes and medicament, antioxidant, antihypertensive, anti-ageing, hypo-lipidaemic, anti-platelet and detoxify the heavy metal and also having antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antiparasitic and immunomodulatory property. The abundance of natural, readily available amino acids, fatty acids, minerals and vitamins make hen eggs an important part of the human diet.

Integrated crop management (ICM) is a holistic approach to sustainable agriculture. It considers the situation across the whole farm, including socio-economic and environmental factors, to deliver the most suitable and safe approach for long-term benefit. This means carefully considering site selection, soil management, seed & planting material, crop rotation, crop nutrition, pest management, water management and landscape management that fit the local conditions and climate. ICM is not rigidly-defined. It is a dynamic system that adapts to changing conditions by combining local knowledge with new research and technologies. We often work where resources for production are limited, and in these situations the best solution is often to focus on optimizing existing resources. In such a way, ICM delivers sustainable agricultural production that safeguards a farm’s natural assets and surrounding community, now and in the future.

Despite a large labour force in India, the labour shortages are acute in agriculture. It has not only increased the base wage rates but has also affected the timely operations and thereby productivity levels. The farm-wages have shot up in many states indicating switching towards improved techniques

There are 115 million operational holdings in the country and about 80 % are marginal and small farmers. To fulfill the basic needs of house hold including food (cereal, pulses, oilseeds, milk, fruit, honey, meat, etc.), feed, fodder, fiber, etc. warrant an attention about Integrated Farming System (IFS). Undoubtedly, majority of the farmers are doing farming since long back but their main focus was individual components but not in a integrated manner. At the ICAR and State Agricultural Universities level, lot of efforts have been made aiming at increasing the productivity of different components of farming system like crop, dairy, livestock, poultry, piggery, goat keeping, duckery, apiculture, sericulture, horticulture, mushroom cultivation etc.

Plant genomics is a multidisciplinary approach to unravel the structure, function and evolution of genomes. It is useful in identification and characterization of agronomically important genes, mining of superior alleles, comparative genomics for orphan crops or crops with large and complex genomes, development of DNA markers, molecular tagging of useful traits, marker assisted selection, genome-wide association mapping, Quantitative trait loci (QTL) identification, development of transgenic crops and understanding evolution.

Colostrum, the first milk by the mammary gland after parturition, is especially rich in bioactive proteins like immunoglobulin, lactoferrins etc. Research suggested that the beneficial effects of supplementation of bovine colostrum in improving health, aspects of athletic performance, diarrhea in persons with immune-deficiency syndromes, Non-Steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drug (NSAID) induced gastrointestinal disturbances, and aspects of post surgical acute phase response. Thus, colostrum based products are wide accredited as modern nutraceutical and gaining popularity in health care market.
