THE INDIRECT ROLE OF SOLAR ENERGY IN CONTROLLING COTTON LEAFWORM, SPODOPTERA LITTORALIS (BOSID) (LEPIDOPTERA: NOCTUIDAE)

Author: Rania Ahmed Abd El-Wahab, Ehab M. Anwar, Eftkhar E. Abouhatab & Xiuwei Li

 

Abstract: Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs), which showed a direct effect on pests, were powered by solar energy to play an indirect role in controlling Spodoptera littoralis. Laboratory studies were conducted to determine the mortality and both of antifeedant and growth inhibitory effects of light-emitting diodes (LEDs) against 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th larval stages of S.littoralis. White LEDs were more effective against all larval stages more than Blue LEDs even mortality ratios proved that.White LEDs caused 100 % mortality of both 1st and .................Read more

Authors: B.Meenarathi, R. Anbarasan, B.Priyadarshini, J.Muthuprasannavathana

 

Abstract:Green Campus Program as responses to the problem of global climate change has become a major concern in the world. Availability of green open space with tree community is a demand for healthy environment. However, it produces organic waste in the form of litter that requires treatment to use as potential materials for compost production. The identification, quantification and characterization of organic waste biomass was conducted to measure the quality and quantity of potential materials contained for compost................Read more

 

PHYTOEXTRACTION OF WEED PLANTS BY SURVEY AND ANALYSIS IN RESPONSE TO LEAD ACCUMULATION

Author: Hanumanth Kumar.Gurijala & Pramoda kumari.Jasti

 

Abstract: Field experiments were conducted on lead contaminated spoil dump. Plants growing on spoiled dump were collected for phytoremediation (phytoextraction) studies in order to determine whether the plants would thrive in contaminated soil and undergo phytoremediation. Lead accumulation level in soil was 164 mg/kg. Pb in plants was determined by atomic absorption spectrophotometer. Lead (Pb) accumulation levels in dry weight (DW) of plant samples were Bidens pilosa (90.53±8.86 mg/kg), Parthenium histocarpus (81.53±3.37 mg/kg ), Spermococa pusilla (74.9±7.21 mg/kg), Tinospora cordifolia (74.53±3.31 mg/kg), Hemidesmus indicus..................Read more
