Agricultural Research Updates. Volume 38


Prathamesh Gorawala and Srushti Mandhatri (Editors)

Series: Agricultural Research Updates
BISAC: SOC055000

This edited volume presents five chapters, each detailing recent updates in agricultural research. Chapter One studies acaricidal neuronal activity from the perspective of molecular level interactions with receptor-proteins. Chapter Two deals with the use of omics technologies for developing soybean cultivars with improved seed longevity and permeability. Chapter Three summarizes the results of two investigations of various nutritional properties of the aerial parts of soybean cultivar Eiko at seven stages classified as vegetative stages and reproductive stages during the 2014 growing season. Chapter Four describes the production of crocin and its potential as a biocolorant in polymer products. Lastly, Chapter Five discusses the relationships between aphids and plants as well as strategies for following and controlling aphid behavior.
