  Mangoes account for approximately half of all tropical fruits produced worldwide. India is the largest mango producer accounting for about half of the global mango production. This research attempts to study about the production, area, productivity, disease associated with mango, management and factor which are responsible for the low production of Mango. Mango, a tropical fruit of great economic importance is generally harvested green and then commercialised after a period of storage. Unfortunately, the final quality of mango batches is highly heterogeneous in fruit size as well as in gustatory quality and postharvest behaviour. A large amount of knowledge has been gathered on the effects of the maturity stage at harvest and postharvest conditions on the final quality of mango. Considerably, less attention has been paid to the influence of environmental factors on mango growth, quality traits and postharvest behaviour. The preharvest factors presented here are light, temperature, carbon and water availabilities which can be controlled by various cultural practices such as tree pruning, fruit thinning and irrigation management. Recent advances are also discussed in modelling mango function on the tree according to environmental conditions that combined with experimental studies, can improve our understanding of how these preharvest conditions affect mango growth and quality.

  The present investigation on was undertaken in the Department of Plant Pathology, B.A. College of Agriculture, A.A.U., Anand. The Penicillium funiculosum rot of aonla was found a new record in Gujarat and it was identified by Division of Mycology and Plant Pathology, Indian Agricultural Research Institute, New Delhi (ITCC No.: 7046.08). Bio-efficacy of nine phytoextracts at 10% were tested against the mycelial growth and sporulation of Penicillium funiculosum in vitro, among them significantly lowest mycelial growth of P. funiculosum was recorded in neem leaf extract (7.75 mm) showing 89.49% growth inhibition. Further it was also proved most effective in reducing the Penicillium rot severity both in pre- (20.44%) and post-inoculation (20.87%) treatments at 7 day after inoculation, respectively. The next best treatment in tested phytoextracts tulsi and garlic were found both in in vitro and in vivo condition.

  The weekly survey carried out from first week of October to fourth week of January, 2008-09, revealed that the maximum disease incidence of Penicillium rot was observed to the tune of 4.93, 4.35 and 2.89% at Vegetable Market, Juni Shak Market, Station Road, Anand and Horticulture Farm Shop, A.A.U., Anand, respectively. The disease incidence of various rots (Penicillium, Alternaria, Colletotrichum, Aspergillus, Phomopsis and other rots) were found maximum at Vegetable Market and Juni Shak Market, Anand than the Horticulture Farm Shop, Anand. The pure culture was obtained from surveyed of aonla fruit and sent for identification to Indian Type Culture Collection (I.T.C.C.), Division of Mycology and Plant Pathology, I.A.R.I., New Delhi and was identified as a new recorded the Penicillium funiculosum (ITCC: 7046.08).

  Onion (Allium cepa L.) is one of the most important vegetable cum condiment crop of family Alliaceae, grown in all the parts of India. Onion bulbs and green onions both are rich in minerals, proteins and ascorbic acid. Onion is used throughout the year in the form of salad or condiment or for cooking with other vegetables. Onion is also used for making pickles in vinegar or brine. Its use in soups and souce is very common. Onion has several medicinal uses, its use in the case of sun strokes is known world over. Basal rot of onion caused by Fusarium oxysporum is a wide spread disease observed in nurseries as well as in field in the vicinity of Jobner, which causes losses at all the stages of crop growth right from germination to till harvest and also in storage. The efficacy of different fungicide, Benlate, Bavistin, Blitox, Captan and Thiram of different concentrations (50, 100, 200 and 300 ppm) and organic amendments neem cake, mustard cake, groundnut cake, vermicompost and goat and sheep manure of different concentrations (10, 20, 30%). Benlate was found most effective with complete inhibition of mycelial growth of the fungus at 200 and 300 ppm concentrations followed by Bavistin and Blitox. In organic amendements neem cake was found most effective in inhibiting the mycelial growth of Fusarium oxysporum and it was followed by mustasrd cake.

  Experiment was conducted at BHU in the year 2012-13. Radial growth was not significantly different for most of the isolates. Seven DAI (days after inoculation) highest radial growth has obtained in isolate RF-1 (35.50 mm), Ten DAI maximum growth was observed in isolate EC-1 (52.00 mm) and Thirteen DAI maximum radial growth was same observed in two isolates IIVR and BHU-1 (88.75 mm). The maximum mean mycelial growth was observed in isolate IIVR (57.83 mm) followed by MF-4 (57.66 mm) and BHU-1 (56.83 mm). Isolates of A. solani depicted high variability in pigment production on PDA medium. Mycelial growth patterns were observed on PDA where BG RF-1 SF-1 MF-4 BHU-1 grew with circular margin with smooth surfaced colony and AF-2, PN-4, EC-1, BX-2 and IIVR isolates grew with irregular margin and rough surface. Five varieties of tomato were screened with 10 different isolates. The variety Selection-7 and H-86 were highly susceptible and susceptible, respectively with all the isolates tested. The variety Feb-2 was resistant while, the variety Flora Dade and Swarna Naveen were highly resistant with all the isolates. There was no significant difference between Flora Dade and Swarna Naveen. Out of 10 isolates, only three major groups were recorded on the basis of SAS analysis likewise Group-A isolates were highly virulent (MF-4 and PN-4), Group-C isolates indicate virulent (BG, AF-2, EC-1 and RF-1) and Group- E isolates were less virulent (BHU-1, IIVR, SF-1 and BX-2) with all the five varieties.

  Aonla (Emblica officinalis Geartn) king of arid fruits popularly known as “Indian gooseberry” is a small sized minor subtropical fruit that grows widely in North India. India ranks first in the world in area and production. It is considered as “Wonder fruit for health” because of its unique qualities. It is a rich source of vitamin C. It is a perishable fruit and therefore it is necessary to extend its shelf life by adopting good post harvest management practices. Post harvest loses are the major constraints which discourage farmers to go for aonla cultivation. The extension of shelf life may be possible by checking the rate of transpiration, respiration and by checking microbial infection. Different chemicals like waxol, Ca (NO3)2, CCC, carbendazim, GA3, borax, kinetin and packaging materials like nylon net, perforated PE bags, ventilated CFB boxes, gunny bags, wooden crates etc., can be used for prolong the storage life of fruit. Refrigerated storage also helps in enhancing the storage life of fruit. There are so many products like aonla squash, candy, jam and chutney prepared from fruit and it also has the quality to prevent the disease like skin disease, hair falling, blood pressure and some other diseases.

  Agriculture provides food for humans, directly and indirectly. As world population is increasing, it is necessary to use the modern technologies such as bio and nanotechnologies in agricultural sciences. Nanotechnology has been defined as relating to materials, systems and processes which operate at a scale of 100 nm or less. Nanotechnology has many applications in all stages of production, processing, storing, packaging and transport of agricultural products. Nanotechnology will revolutionize agriculture and food industry by innovation new techniques such as: Precision farming techniques, enhancing the ability of plants to absorb nutrients, more efficient and targeted use of inputs, disease detection and control diseases, withstand environmental pressures and effective systems for processing, storage and packaging.
