Analysis of genetic diversity in the North Eastern Himalayan (NEH) maize landraces of India using microsatellite markers
Population DNA fingerprinting of 48 selected North Eastern Himalayan (NEH) landrace accessions was undertaken using 41 polymorphic fluorescent dye-labelled microsatellite/Simple Sequence Repeat (SSR) markers, using a DNA ...
Molecular genetic diversity analysis in emmer wheat (Triticum dicoccon Schrank) from India
Emmer wheat (Triticum dicoccon Schrank) is still largely cultivated in India, and highly appreciated for the preparation of traditional dishes. Moreover, its nutritional characteristics could justify a development of its ...
Microsatellite marker-based diversity and population genetic analysis of selected lowland and mid-altitude maize landrace accessions of India
Maize (Zea mays L.) harbours significant genetic diversity not only in its centre of origin (Mexico) but also in several countries worldwide, including India, in the form of landraces. In this study, DNA fingerprinting of ...
Household inventories and marketed surplus in semisubsistence agriculture
A model of semisubsistence agriculture explicitly accounting for the ability of farm households to hold inventories of staple foods is developed. Comparative statics analysis highlights the potential importance of wealth ...
Maize-poultry value chains in India: Implications for Research and Development
Rapid growth of the poultry industry in India has caused an increased demand for maize (Zea mays L.). Poultry feed contains 60-65% of maize and approximately 50% of India's annual maize harvest of 19 million tons is used ...
Livelihood assets as a multidimensional inverse proxy for poverty: A district-level analysis of the Indian indo-gangetic plains
The measurement of poverty is important yet problematic and controversial. This study assesses livelihood asset indicators from the sustainable livelihood approach as a multidimensional inverse proxy for poverty. The study ...
