Drought resistant barley variety developed at John Innes Centre by Hardwood’s Group

Dhaka 7th July. Through genetic engineering, Dr. Wendy Harwood and her colleagues at the John Innes Centre, Norwich, UK developed a barley variety more susceptible to water deficit, i.e.,  a variety characterized by stomata which closed more readily when water was scarce. In other words, this mechanism enabled the newly evolved variety to  retain the pl

Control Strategy for Crown Gall Disease of Grapevines through Water-Based Plant Extracts

Control Strategy for Crown Gall Disease of Grapevines through Water-Based Plant Extracts

July 6, 2014. Rhizobium vitis cause the crown gall disease of grapevines resulting in  considerable economic losses. Recent reports have revealed that the water-based crude extracts from hairy vetch (Vicia villosa) and ryegrass (Lolium perenne) act as a deterrent to antimicrobial activity against R. vitis. Researchers now  have shown that in a gree
