Pathogens deposited at ITCC New Delhi
icon Application of Neem cake as soil amelioration @5q/ha reduced the nematodes viz. Meloidogyne, Tylenchorhynchus and Pratylenchus population from 10 - 40 per cent in Sorghum + Cowpea Berseem + Japan sarson - Maize + Cowpea forage production system.

icon Trichoderma harziamum, Paeciliomyces lilacinus or VAM fungi, Glomus fasciculatus along with organic amendment gave effective control in Cowpea and Berseem root rot and nematode diseases.

icon Heterorhabditis indica and Steinernema carpocapsae spp. of entomopathogenic nematodes caused reduction of 72.10% and 49.66% grub population over untreated control, respectively.

2. Macrophomina phaseolina Cowpea (V. unguiculata Bhubaneshwar, Orissa Stem rot disease
3. Sclerotinia trifoliorum Berseem (T. alexandrinum) Garera, Dist. Datia, MP Stem rot disease
icon Aiming at development of molecular markers and molecular maps in fodder crops, understanding and utilizing apomixis in perennial grasses, biochemical basis f stress tolerance, and generation of interspecific hybrids.

icon Identification of obligate sexual lines in C. ciliaris and guinea grass, and molecular markers for mode of reproduction.

icon Identification of molecular markers (SSR) in perennial grasses, berseem, oats and Stylosanthes.

icon Multigene control model for regulation of apomixis and Identification of reproductive pathways of seed development in apomictic grasses.

icon Generation of worlds' largest ploidy series in a crop plant utilizing Hybridization-supplemented Apomixis-components Partitioning Approach (HAPA) from a single progenitor (2n=4x=32) in guinea grass, represented by 3x, 4x, 5x, 6x, 7x, 8x, 9x and 11x cytotypes. ¢ Identification of differentially expressed genes during apomeosis in Pennisetum.

icon Tissue culture: Established protocol and micropropagation in Berseem, Oats, C. ciliaris; Embryo rescue in Berseem, Pearl millet; In vitro screening (salinity): Berseem, Oats

icon Cytogenetics: Identification/generation of Chromosomal races in Pearl millet (2x, 3x, 4x) (MS/MF/Maintainers), Berseem (2x, 4x); P. pedicellatum (4x, 6x, 8x), P. squamulatum (8x), P. orientale (4x, 6x); and Oats (aneuploids) (6x+)

icon Transformation in Lucerne, C. ciliaris, Dichanthium

icon Identitifcation of differentially expressed genes during apomeiosis in Pennisetum
