Growing potato crop in Rabi

Posted by BigHaat India on

Edible potato Solanum tuberosum is member of family Solanaceae. Potatoes bear tubers and are propagated through underground tubers.   Soil Well drained sandy loam and medium loam sols, rich in humus are most suitable for potato. Acidic soils with pH range 5.0 to 6.5 are suitable and at this conditions scab disease may be minimum. Higher alkalinity in soil or saline soils are not suitable for potato cultivation. Climate requirement for potato crop Potato is a cool season crop and grows well in soils with sufficient moisture. Tuber growth is good if soil temperatures are between 17 °C and 19°C....

Relationship of Plant diseases and Micronutrients

Posted by BigHaat India on

Micronutrients play an important role in the resistance mechanisms of plants against pathogens, and increase in micro-nutrient concentrations in soils significantly prevent pathogenic infections. Boron Micronutrient Boron micronutrient plays a main role in the synthesis of defensive compounds in plant tissues which hinder the fungal attachment to the host plant therefore avoiding the infections. Boron application and amendment to the crops by soil application reduces soil borne plant fungal diseases like Fusarium wilt, Plasmodiophora wilt, and Verticillium wilts on various plants. Boron deficient plants are susceptible to a wide range of diseases such as an ergot, fusarium wilt, powdery mildew...

Importance of Biofertilisers in the Soil and Plant root system

Posted by BigHaat India on

Soil is the prime source of essential nutrients to plants. Unavailability of a nutrient to the plant show deficiency symptoms, which result in yield decline. Rhizospheric bacteria has got a vital role in the geochemical cycling of nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorus and micronutrients like iron, manganese, zinc and copper. These micro-organisms determine the nutrient availability for plants and also for soil microbial community. These bacteria helps in enhancing crop yield by increasing plant nutrient availability, producing growth hormones and they also acts as a bio agent for control of many plant parasitic pathogens. In present agricultural scenario nutrients availability in...

Weed management in Wheat crop with herbicides

Posted by BigHaat India on

The productivity of any crop may also be decided by the weeds grown along with the crop. Weeds are gifted with more resistance to abiotic stresses and with better nutrient absorption capacity than crops.     Integrated weed management practices need to be focused to effectively manage the weeds in any crop. Weeds are also common in wheat crop like any other crops.                           Herbicides usage in wheat crop is an effective option for control of certain weeds in wheat if used properly. However, only using herbicides may...

Use of Biological Fungal Agents Trichoderma Species in Crop Management

Posted by BigHaat India on

Trichoderma species fungi are free-living fungi that are commonly found in soil and plant root micro climatic systems. These fungi produce or release wide variety of compounds that can induce some defensive responses to pests and diseases in plants. Trichoderma species are important in soil as they can be used as biological agents in controlling many plant diseases and also have plant root growth promoting capabilities.  Two species Trichoderma viride and Trichoderma harzianum are twoTrichoderma fungal species prominent in present agriculture trends. Five benefits of using Trichoderma species to Soil for plants Disease Control: Trichoderma species may be used against...
