Study on Industrial Production of Frozen French Fry

Considering the production of about 10 million tones of potatoes in the country, there is an urgent need for diversified use of the harvested potatoes. As a result, the processing of potato for domestic use and export markets has been identified as a national priority for effective management of the »

Tissue Culture of Virus Free Potato Plantlets

Tissue culture is applied in plant research for such purposes as the growing of new plants, which in some cases undergo genetic alterations. The plant of interest is taken through the tissue culture process and grown in a controlled environment. This process involves the use of small pieces of a »

Breeding values of studying Cucumber Mosaic Virus

Being ultramicroscopic obligatory parasites, viruses are quite difficult to study. In ancient time, plant viral diseases were identified based on only symptoms. Controlling viral diseases of plants has always been difficult as virus has no cellular components. Molecular biology has changed the world of virology, pathology etc. Since Watson and »
