|Title : Agri-Tourism: A Potential Livelihood Approach for Empowering Farm Women|
|Authors : Ankita Sahu,Laxmipriya Sahoo,Arpita Mohapatra,Tania Seth|
Agri-tourism, also referred to as agricultural or farm tourism, is a specialized branch of the tourism industry. It entails venturing into agricultural areas, farms, or rural landscapes to actively partake in farming-related activities and immerse oneself in rural life. This niche sector provides visitors with the unique opportunity to directly engage in agricultural practices, embrace rural customs, and relish the countryside's charm (Sznajder et al., 2009). In contemporary times, agri-tourism is gaining prominence as a promising means of livelihood for rural communities (Tiraieyari and Hamzah, 2012). This burgeoning trend not only enriches travelers' experiences but also revitalizes rural economies.

|Title : High throughput phenotyping and its applications in crop improvement|
|Authors : Yathish K.R ,G. Nagamani,A.K Das,Chikkappa G.K,Mallikarjuna M.G,J.C. Sekhar|
The development of high-throughput phenotyping technologies has progressed considerably in the last decade as these technologies provide precise measurements of desired traits among thousands of field-grown plants under diversified environments. Since plant phenotyping is the foundation of crop breeding, high-throughput phenotyping techniques were employed in many crop improvement programs. This allowed breeders to draw on physiological features and mechanistic knowledge to guide their choice of material for crossover and genetic improvement. High-throughput phenotyping techniques and platforms help to unravel the genetic basis of complex traits associated with plant growth and development and targeted traits. The usage of field-based high-throughput approaches will expand with the development of user-friendly data management tools and software for better comprehending phenotyping, which has the potential to revolutionize breeding strategies and to satisfy future needs.

|Title : Developing White Rust Resistance in Rapeseed-Mustard: A Modern Perspective|
|Authors : Prashant Yadav,Sushma Yadav,Arun Kumar,Nitish R. Bhardwaj,Anjana Goel|
Indian mustard (Brassica juncea) is a Rabi season crop primarily grown in the northern states of India. Its production is influenced by various biotic and abiotic stresses. Among these, white rust disease caused by the oomycete fungal pathogen Albugo candida is a significant threat to rapeseed-mustard cultivation. This disease leads to substantial yield losses, impacting the income of farmers. The article focuses on the symptoms, life cycle, management strategies, and improved breeding techniques for combating white rust disease. Emphasizing disease resistance, the study highlights the importance of developing resistant varieties through breeding, genetic engineering, and marker-assisted selection. This strategy aims to enhance crop yield and quality while minimizing the need for pesticides, thereby contributing to environmental preservation.

|Title : Thermophilic Bacteria: Applications in Agriculture|
|Authors : Shivani Sankla,Asha Sahu,Sudeshna Bhattacharjya,Nisha Sahu, A B Singh|
Thermophilic bacteria are common in soil and volcanic habitats and have a limited species composition. They are inhabitants of various environments, such as deep-sea hydrothermal vents, terrestrial hot springs, and other extreme sites, including volcanic region, tectonically active faults, and processing waste residues, like compost piles and deep organic landfill. Yet they possess all the major nutritional categories and metabolize the same substrates as mesophilic bacteria. The ability to proliferate at growth temperature optima well above 60°C is associated with extremely thermally stable macromolecules. Thermophiles have attracted considerable attention because they present specific features with biotechnological and industrial interest, such as the production of different biomolecules (exopolysaccharide, antimicrobial, biosurfactant) and thermostable enzymes (amylases, cellulases, chitinases, pectinases, xylanases, proteases, lipase, and DNA polymerases), for biotechnological applications in medical, industrial, and agriculture processes. Many thermophilic bacteria possess properties suitable for biotechnological and commercial use. There is, indeed, a considerable demand for a new generation of stable enzymes that are able to withstand severe conditions in agriculture processes by replacing or supplementing traditional chemical processes. Thermophilic bacteria have application in chemical feedstock and fuel production, bioconversion of wastes, enzyme technology, and immobilization of heavy metal. This article reviews the fundamental and applied aspects of thermophilic bacteria that are of potential agriculture interest.

|Title : Nutrient-dense alternate crops for crop diversification and combating malnutrition|
|Authors : J. Shanalin,P. Vinodhini,R. Rajavarthini,V. Keerthana|
Malnutrition problem is one of the biggest threats that India has been combating since its independence. Further, as farmers worldwide experience more frequent drought and erratic rainfall linked to climate change, the race to find and improve drought-resistant crops grows ever more important. Alternate crops must be incorporated into our normal diet, dispelling the idea that they are only grown by the poorest of the poor. Nutrient dense crops like millets, quinoa, chia, grain amaranth etc. are being increasingly recognized for their potential to play important roles as alternative food grains. Stress-resistant crops are needed to ensure yield stability under stress conditions and to minimize the environmental impacts of crop production. The introduction of new cultivated species and improved varieties of crops is a technology aimed at enhancing plant productivity, quality, health and nutritional value and/or building crop resilience to diseases, pest organisms and environmental stresses. It reduces the risk of total crop failure and also provides alternative means of generating income, as different crops will respond to climate scenarios in different ways.

|Title : Importance of Vegetables in the Human Diet|
|Authors : Niraj Kumar Prajapati,Raj Pandey,Awaneesh Chandra,Hari Bakshand,Rajaneesh Singh|
Vegetables are considered essential for a balanced diet because they provide vitamins, minerals, fibre, and phytochemicals. Appropriate consumption of vegetables can prevent chronic diseases such as diabetes, cancer, obesity, metabolic syndrome, and cardiovascular diseases and improve the risk factors associated with these diseases. Vegetables are used as leaves, stems, fruits, flowers, roots, etc. Vegetables also have seasons and their own nutritional value. They are not only a storehouse of many nutrients but also have therapeutic value, and they exhibit antioxidant properties. Important metals are delivered to our bodies by plants absorbing them from the soil. This article will provide basic information about the importance of vegetables in the human diet as well as their effects on vegetable food content and human health.

|Title : Underutilized Aquatic Vegetables and Their Nutritional Values|
|Authors : Jogdhande Srinivas ,C. N. R. Santhoshini|
In India, lakes, rivers and other freshwaters support a large diversity of biota representing almost all taxonomic groups. From an ecological point of view, the diversity of species present in the wetlands is an indication of the relative importance of the aquatic biodiversity issue as a whole. The total numbers of aquatic plant species exceed 1200 and aquatic vegetation is a valuable source of food. In the winter, migratory waterfowl search the sediment for nutritious seeds, roots and tubers. Resident waterfowl may feed on different species of aquatic vegetation year-round. Aquatic vegetables are "environmentally friendly": they suffer from few diseases and pests and can be grown without chemical fertilizers. Concerted efforts are being made to unravel the genes that lie behind some of these attractive traits, such as resistance to pests.
