EFFECT OF BIOFERTILIZER APPLICATION AND MOISTURE LEVELS ON SOIL DEHYDROGENASE ACTIVITY UNDER SUGARCANE CROPPING SYSTEM by R. SELASTIN ANTONY1, S. SATHIYARAJ2 AND S. KARTHIKEYAN1 <p>The objective of the study is to evaluate the effect of biofertilizer application and moisture levels on dehydrogenase activity under sugarcane cropping system by imposing different levels of irrigation(75%, 100%, 125% Recommended dose of irrigation) and fertigation (75% and 100% Recommended dose of fertilizers with different formulations of fertilizers and with or without biofertiliers). Based on the results obtained from the field trial, dehydrogenase activity increased upto 150 days after planting from the initial dehydrogenase activity and there after showed a decreasing trend until harvest. Irrigation regime of 125 percent (I<sub>3</sub>) with fertigation level of 75 percent RDF as 50 percent commercial and 50 percent water soluble fertilizer + LBF (F3) recorded the highest dehydrogenase activity (I<sub>3</sub>F<sub>3</sub>). It is evidently clear that the application of biofertilizers were greatly involved in the accumulation of soil enzymes, which directly reflects the soil fertility index. Soil moisture content may also be played a major role on dehydrogenase activity.</p> R. SELASTIN ANTONY*1, S. SATHIYARAJ2 AND S.

APPLICATION OF PROTEOMICS AND GENOMIC TECHNOLOGIES TO THE IMPROVEMENT OF MEAT QUALITY OF FOOD ANIMALS - A REVIEW by SARITA KUMARI1, BARKHA GUPTA2, ANURAG PANDEY1, ANURAG3, US SURADKAR1, YR AMBEDKAR1 AND ASHISH SAINI1 <p>The development in meat science research aimed to achieve high nutritious, superior quality and wholesome meat. Advances in proteomics and molecular genetics have led to the identification of markers associated with genes, that affect meat quality. Proteomics is a potent postgenomic tool in the field of meat science, allows researchers to decipher underlying molecular mechanisms behind different meat quality traits. In food animals, molecular genetics have been applied for breeding by marker-assisted selection. This paper is a comprehensive overview on application of proteomic and genomics tools in meat quality and safety research module which help to find some of the latest development in proteomic and genomics in relation to meat science and animal research aspects.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> SARITA KUMARI1, BARKHA GUPTA2, ANURAG PANDEY1, ANURAG3, US SURADKAR1, YR AMBEDKAR1 AND ASHISH SAINI1 ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2019-10-01 2019-10-01 27 07 TO 12 07 TO 12
