Inter Institutional Transfer Application Proforma

International Conference on Sustainability of the Sugar and Integrated Industries: Issues and Initiatives (SUGARCON-2022)

Achievements (Plant Physiology & Biochemistry)

Reduced seed requirement (1 t ha-1) and rapid seed multiplication (1:60) using bud chiptechnology
Improved physiological efficiency through exogenous application of Ethrel & Gibberellic acid, increased crop harvest index and TSH in plant crops (autumn, spring and late planted) &ratoon crops (initiated from autumn & late planted sugarcane, Field impacts were assessed at farmers fields in Shamli and at Motipur regional centre, ICAR-IISR, Lucknow).
Identified 3000 Transcripts of GA sprayed cane & their phylogeny was prepared based on DNA sequences.
Modulated expression of sucrose metabolizing enzymes through foliar applications of enzyme effectors containing Mg, Mn and Ethrel for higher sucrose content in cane stalks.
Deduced the first nucleotide sequence for Saccharum spontaneum SES34 (Gene accession no.: KC570328) by utilizing primer pairs developed based on known sequences of SAI gene.
Determined SAI gene sequence for Saccharum spp. hybrids CoJ64 and for Saccharum officinarum 28NG210 (Gene accession nos.: KC570326 and KC570327, respectively)
Minimized post-harvest losses through BKC + SMS (0.1 % each)
Identified Leuconostoc species causing increased post-harvest sucrose losses.
Developed biological pre-treatment methodology for conversion of lignocellulosic trash into fermentable sugars for its conversion to bio ethanol.
Deduced lesser bio-availability of nitrogen bonded to aromatic carbons (anilides) in a humic acid fraction of ratoon rhizosphere that impeded nutrient acquisition during grand growth stage, causing yield decline of successive ratoons.
Identified five most waterlogging tolerant genotypes, CoLk 12206, LG 06605, LG 04439, D-6-13, S 5085/11, based on relative cane weight.
