If we can gain understanding of how plants grow, then we may be
able to manipulate it to reduce both chemical fertilizer use and its
environmental impact without decreasing the yield. This book provides
information about the use of bio-agents, plant health, plant pathogen, property
of melanin, and the influence of rootstock and root growth. Major topics covered
are: The Use of Bio-Agents for Management of Potato Diseases, Plant Health, The
Organic Amendment Improve the Yield and Quality of Vegetable, Plant Pathogens,
Making Soil More Accessible to Plants, Coumarin&
This book is designed to furnish classes
in our schools and colleges with a suitable text book of Structural and
Physiological Botany, as well as private students with a convenient introductory
manual, adapted to the present condition of the science.
This book is
the result of several years 1 experience of the authors with the Intermediate
classes. A lot of time is usually wasted in giving instructions and notes to the
students as to the procedure of the day's work. The authors feel that this
humble attempt at systematizing the practical work of Intermediate classes, will
go a long way to remove this difficulty.
one knows when herbs of medicinal value were first used and few care to even
venture a guess. In all probability, certain unknown early plants which produced
a feeling of well-being were recognized and ingested regularly by the primates
who preceded man. After the emergence of man, in the early dawn of time, there
followed thousands of centuries of gastronomical experimentation by this
strange, upright being, during which time he learned to select from available
foods those which were best suited for his system
