Therefore, two wheat varieties (Misr-1 and Seds-12) were tested under three rates (8, 10 and 12 tons/fed) of supported compost and various microbial inoculation treatments during of 2012/2013 and 2013/2014 seasons. The main obtained results revealed that the Misr-1 wheat variety recorded significant increases in yield and its components except average of grains number/spike during the two seasons. Moreover, the interaction among three experiment factors showed that Misr-1 wheat variety, 10 ton/fed of supported compost and microbial inoculation by <em>Trichoderma + Bacillus subtilis</em> gave the greatest values for number of spike/m<sup>2</sup>, spike weight, average grain weight per spike, 1000-grain weight, biological yield, total yield/fed and protein content. However, highest number of grains per spike were recorded with Seds-12 wheat variety and 10 tons/fed of supported compost + inoculated by <em>Trichoderma + Bacillus subtilis</em>.</p> 2016-07-01T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://e-journal.sospublication.co.in/index.php/jalrb/article/view/254 Cuticular Biochemistry: Lambda-Cyhalothrin Induced Alterations in Mutant Drosophila melanogaster 2018-12-09T00:49:44+00:00 Harendra N.

Saxena drhnsharma2015@gmail.com Vishnu Kumar Upadhyay drhnsharma2015@gmail.com Namrata Rana drhnsharma2015@gmail.com Nishi Saxena drhnsharma2015@gmail.com <p>Derivatives of natural pyrethrum, synthetic pyrethroids, are well-established neurotoxins. However, they do interfere with the functioning of metabolic processes; the most important of these is chitin metabolism, a key process in the development of insects. Type II synthetic pyrethroid, lambda-cyhalothrin, when orally fed to <em>Drosophila melanogaster</em> revealed its efficacy in chitin synthesis modulation. Total proteins, glucosamine, N-acetylglucosamine, chitinase activity and chitin content exhibit significant changes in the final developmental stage, the adults. A reduction in chitin synthesis is suggestive of interference in polymerization process which is a must for cuticle formation. Involvement of lambda-cyhalothrin in chitin synthesis has been sought to be an additional mode of action, other than its neurotoxic nature.</p> 2016-07-01T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
