Senthil-NathanAbstractLight and pheromone trap-catches of yellow stem-borer (YSB) [Scirpophaga incertulas (Walker)] were monitored in low-land rice during summer 2017 in the Chhattisgarh, India region to develop biological control management strategies for areas with low winter temperatures. High catches of males and females in light trap started during March 05 to 11th, 2017, in association with 8.5% dead-heart symptom, indicative of YSB damage to the central shoot, whi...

Known as “the pearl of the Indian Ocean,” Sri Lanka is an island-nation in South Asia with a population of 21 million people. Its ancient irrigation-based agricultural civilization dating back to the sixth century BC flourished until the early 16th century, when successive occupation by the Portuguese, D utch, and British resulted in its transition to a tropical colony with a plantation economy based on crops of tea, rubber, coconut, and cinnamon.1 After 4 centuries of colonial rule, Sri Lanka gained independence from the British on February 4, 1948.

Conclusion: Extensive research on process standardization and optimization has been carried out on cereal based milk products such as kheer, dalia, Payasam and phirni in addition to their variants in the past decade. Novel products with modern technologies mimicking the traditional products have been developed to satisfy the nutritional and medical requirements and even the taste buds of the consumers. Wide scope in research applications still exists and still needs to be explored.

Abbott Laboratories is bringing two of its pediatric devices in the cardiology space to Europe. The Abbott Park, IL-based company has received CE mark for both the Masters HP 15mm rotatable mechanical heart valve and the Amplatzer Piccolo Occluder. The Masters valve is the world's smallest mechanical heart valve and allows doctors to treat babies and toddlers in need of a mitral or aortic heart valve replacement. Until Abbott's device, surgeons could only use a range of larger-sized valves to replace a pediatric heart valve that could not be repaired, which could result in improper fit and complications. The Masters pediat...

Dhiman The future implications of climate change on malaria transmission at the global level have already been reported, however such evidences are scarce and limited in India. Here our study aims to assess, identify and map the potential effects of climate change on Plasmodium vivax (Pv) and Plasmodium falciparum (Pf) malaria transmission in India. A Fuzzy-based Climate Suitability Malaria Transmission (FCSMT) model under the GIS environment was generated using Temperature and Relative Humidity data, extracted from CORDEX South Asia for Baseline (1976–2005) and RCP 4.5 scenario for future projection by the ...
