  • Biological pesticides are pesticides derived from natural materials such as bacteria, plants, and minerals that are applied to crops to kill pests. Biopesticides are targeted, inexpensive, eco-friendly, sustainable, leave no trace, and are not associated with the production of greenhouse gases. It contributes significantly to the agricultural bio-economy's sustainability. The advantages to the ecosystem provided by many significant biological resources justify the incorporation of biopesticides in Integrated Pest Management (IPM) programs. Through advancements in research and development, the use of biopesticides has significantly reduced environmental contamination. The development of biopesticides promotes agricultural modernization and will surely result in a gradual phase-out of chemical pesticides. Although synthetic pesticides have positive effects on crop yield and productivity, they also have some negative impacts on soil biodiversity, animals, aquatic life, and humans. In general, synthetic pesticides make the soil brittle, decrease soil respiration, and reduce the activity of some soil microorganisms, such as earthworms.. Read More

  • The Moraceae family, comprising 50 genera and around 1,400 species thriving in tropical and subtropical regions globally, holds profound botanical significance. Esteemed for its medicinal attributes, this review presents a comprehensive synthesis of the family's bioactive constituents, traditional applications, and pharmaceutical potential. Within the phytochemical realm, Moraceae plants offer a rich array of active agents, including flavonoids, alkaloids, glycosides, saponins, tannins, phytoalexins (such as chalcomoracin), anthocyanins, and glycoproteins, with promising pharmacological potential. Pharmacologically, the review reveals a wide spectrum of effects, including antioxidant, hypoglycemic, anticancer, hepatoprotective, anthelmintic, antihypertensive, and antimicrobial properties. Drawing from an exhaustive literature analysis and in-depth study of Moraceae's bioactivity and phytochemical composition, along with exploration of its traditional uses and pharmacological effects, this discourse aims to guide future researchers. With herbal products' substantial potential, this review serves as a valuable resource for advancing botanical medicine research.. Read More
  • The Fate of Microfibers in the Aquatic Ecosystem

  • The Fate of Microfibers in the aquatic ecosystem is a critical environmental issue that has gained significant attention in recent years. Microfibers are tiny synthetic fibers that are shed from clothing, textiles and other synthetic materials and they are a major contributor to the accumulation of microplastics in the environment. These microfibers can enter water bodies through various pathways, such as wastewater discharge, stormwater runoff, and atmospheric deposition. Once they enter the aquatic ecosystem, they can be ingested by aquatic organisms and can potentially cause harm to their health and well-being. Furthermore, microfibers can also bioaccumulate in the food chain, potentially leading to harmful effects on human health. Therefore, understanding the fate of microfibers in the aquatic ecosystem is crucial for developing effective strategies to mitigate their impact on the environment and human health. This abstract provides an overview of the current knowledge on the fate of microfibers in the aquatic ecosystem, highlighting the pathways of entry, their distribution and persistence in aquatic environments, and their potential impact on aquatic organisms and human health. The accumulation of microfibers in the aquatic ecosystem is a growing concern due to their potential impacts on aquatic organisms and the environment.. Read More
  • Plant growth promotion and antifungal activities of the mango phyllosphere bacterial consortium for the management of Fusarium wilt disease in pea (Pisum sativum L.)

  • Root rot caused by the pathogen Fusarium oxysporum is the number one cause of pea plant (P. sativum L.) death. There are many potential advantages to using rhizobacteria, endophytic bacteria and phyllospheric bacteria for managing plant diseases and promoting plant growth. This study investigated the potentiality of consortium species of bacteria to suppress root rot disease and their ability to promote the growth of pea plants compared with their individual and control plants. A total of 55 phyllospheric bacteria were isolated from mango flower and Bacillus sp. LBF- 02, Bacillus sp. LBF- 03 and Bacillus sp. LBF- 05 showed the most potent antimicrobial activity against root rot pathogens in a dual culture assay. Identification of phyllobacterial strain LBF- 01, LBF- 03 and LBF-05 were done by 16S rDNA sequence analysis using 704f forward primer (50-AGATTTTCCGACGGCAGGTT-30) and 907r reverse primer (50-CCGTCAATTCMTTTRAGTTT-30) with the PCR conditions. Their ability to solubilize phosphate, produce ammonia, siderophore and indole acetic acid, as well as produce extracellular enzymes in vitro was excellent. The results of a greenhouse study found that pea seed treated with consortium isolate significantly increased high germination rates and vigour indexes, as well as shoot and root length, fresh and dry weights, as compared with seed treated with single isolate and control..
