    Kodo millet belongs to the Family: Poaceae, Subfamily: Panicoideae, Tribe: Paniceae, Genus: Paspalum and Species: Paspalum scrobiculatum L. Poaceae –The grass family is the fourth largest family of the flowering plants. It includes about 700-800 genera and 11000-13000 species distributed worldwide. Apart from a high degree of taxonomic diversity, the. family has unmatched ecological and economic diversity. Kodo millet is divided into three races (regularis, irregularis, and variabilis) based on panicle morphology. In southern India, there are small (karu varagu) and large seeded (peru varagu) varieties recognized, often grown together in the same field. Cytological studies have revealed the chromosome number as 2n =4x = 40. Kodo millet is indigenous to India, and it is believed to have been domesticated some 3000 years ago. It well adapted in the tropics and subtropics. Kodo millet is generally cultivated with its weedy species and no distinction is made between the species during harvest. It is also reported to be native to West Africa. It is grown as a minor crop in most of these regions, except in the Deccan Plateau of India, where it is grown as a major food source. It is a very hardy crop, drought tolerant, can survive in marginal soils where other crops cannot survive, and can provide 450-900 kg of grain per hectare. Vernacular names of Kodo millet is in Hindi - Kodon, Kodava; English - Kodo millet; Kannada - Araka,Haraka; Marathi - Kodra,Kodru; Tamil – Varagu; Malayalam – Varaku; Punjabi - Kodon,Kodra; Oriya – Kodua; Telugu – Arikelu; Gujarathi – Kodro; Bengali – Kodoaa dhaan ; ; Urdu – Kodon. The cultivation of kodo millets started in India about 3000 years ago. Apart from India, it is cultivated in Russia, China, Africa and Japan. In India, it is widely grown in Madhya Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Gujarat and Chhattisgarh. Among all millets available, it is well known for the highest drought resistance and produces high yield in a short duration thus is of great economic value. India is the world leader in the production of kodo millets, and thus its cultivation is of great economic significance. Kodo millets are cultivated in the kharif season (monsoon season) and Kodo millets are processed into high-value foods and drinks. Apart from economic and culinary benefits, kodo millets have numerous health benefits. Kodo millet also has considerable production potential in marginal, low fertility soils and chronic moisture deficient areas of the country and plays an important role for the food security of the people inhabiting dry and marginal lands. The seeds have an excellent storage life and can be stored for several years. Kodo is a popular fast or upvas food in some parts of India. The millet is certainly superior to rice, gluten free and rich in fiber, vitamins and minerals. It has large potential to provide nourishing food to subsistence farmers in Africa and elsewhere. It is eaten as a famine food in Africa. Kodo millet is ground into flour and used to make pudding in India. In Africa it is cooked like rice. It is economically important. Its uses include: human food (cereal), animal food (fodder, forage) and medicine. It is harvested as a wild cereal in West Africa and in India. Widely cultivated as a minor millet in Africa and Asia, especially India. Also used for forage and as a feed supplement. In India, it has been used as a substrate for mushroom production and for medicinal purposes. The plant is used to clear the corneal opacity, to treat stiffness of lower limb, polyuria, diabetes, obesity, epistaxis, wound, indigestion, excessive hunger, in diabetes, eye infections, dysuria, hydrocele. Typhoid and its leaf and root paste are used to relieve labour pain. The paste of the whole plant and grain flour is taken as anti-dysenteric and to cure the skin diseases. Tribal of southern Rajasthan in India boil the grains as rice and use in diabetes and dysentery. It is also used as delivery convalescence. Most interestingly, the Santal tribes use the grain to prepare a country liquor. In this review article on Origin, Domestication, Taxonomy, Botanical Description, Genetics and Cytogenetics, Genetic Diversity, Breeding, Uses, Nutritional Value and Health Benefits of Kodo Millet are discussed.

    Weed is a terrible pest that has a negative impact on biodiversity and agricultural production, and the application of natural mycoherbicides represents one of the most innovative and promising strategies to suppress invasive weeds and improve crop productivity. During the 2020–2021 growing seasons, the efficacy of a Fusariumoxysporummycoherbicide against Mimosa diplotricha weed was examined in the field. The mycoherbicide application significantly (p 0.05) reduced Mimosa diplotricha percentage emergence, and infection rate, and increased garden egg yield. These results encourage the need to search for new mycoherbicides that replace synthetic herbicides and pesticides.

    Foxtail millet or oodalu belongs to the Family Poaceae, Subfamily Panicoideae, Genus Echinochloa and Species Echinochloa frumentacea Link. Two barnyard millet species namely Echinochloa frumentacea and E. esculenta are under cultivation in the different parts of world. Echinochloa frumentacea (Indian barnyard millet, sawa millet, or billion dollar grass) is a species of Echinochloa. Both Echinochloa frumentacea and E. esculenta are called Japanese millet. This millet is widely grown as a cereal in India, Pakistan, and Nepal. Its wild ancestor is the tropical grass Echinochloa colona, but the exact date or region of domestication is uncertain. Echinochloa frumentacea is generally known by a few names like sanwa and jhangora (Hindi), shyama (Sanskrit), oodalu (Kannada), kuthiravaali (Tamil), kavadapullu (Malayalam), udalu and kodisama (Telugu), shamul (Marathi), sama (Gujarati), shamula (Bengali), kira (Oriya), bhagar or varai (Marathi & Chhattisgarh) and swank (Punjabi). Indian barnyard millet most probably originated from India where it has been domesticated from the wild E. colona. Wild E. colona originated from the tropics and subtropics of the Old World but can now be found in the tropics and subtropics all over the world and is very common in South-East Asia. Indian barnyard millet is known from ancient Egypt and East Africa but is at present widely grown as a cereal only in India, Kashmir and Sikkim. It has been introduced into the United States, Canada and Australia, especially as a forage. In continental South-East Asia, Indian barnyard millet is quite commonly cultivated but in Peninsular Malaysia it only occurs as a rare weed in cultivated fields. Japanese barnyard millet most probably originated from Japan where it was domesticated from the wild E. crus-galli some 4000 years ago, and was later introduced into Korea, China and adjacent Russia as a cultivated cereal. Wild E. crus-galli is native to temperate Europe and Asia but has spread to temperate and tropical areas all over the world; it is also very common in South-East Asia. Japanese barnyard millet is only extensively cultivated in Japan, Korea and northern China. Barnyard millet is an ancient millet crop grown in warm and temperate regions of the world and widely cultivated in Asia, particularly India, China, Japan, and Korea. Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Maharashtra, and Bihar are among the Indian states where it is cultivated. Barnyard millet has a sweet, nutty flavour, and is easy to cook with different spices. Apart from being delicious, Barnyard millet benefits heart and kidney health. The presence of a high amount of fibre, iron, and phosphorus in Barnyard millet is helpful in controlling blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels. It has gained more popularity in the Sattvic movement to embrace native gains that are good for both humans and the environment. It is the fourth most produced minor millet, providing food security to many poor people across the world. Globally, India is the biggest producer of barnyard millet, both in terms of area (0.146 m ha-1) and production (0.147 mt) with average productivity of 1034 kg/ha during the last 3 years. Yields of Indian barnyard millet amount to 700-800 kg/ha of grain and 1000-1500 kg/ha of straw. It is believed that it can reach a grain yield of more than 2 t/ha. As a forage crop in the United States it can produce as many as eight crops per year. Average yield of Japanese barnyard millet is 1.65 t/ha. The milling process of Foxtail millet may include husking, debranning and grinding. The husked grains are polished. Polished grain may be ground to flour. The grain can also be cooked like rice or processed for flaking. In this review article on Origin, Domestication, Taxonomy, Botanical Description, Genetics and Cytogenetics, Genetic Diversity, Breeding, Uses, Nutritional Value and Health Benefits of Barnyard Millet are discussed.

    Background: The majority of individuals view tobacco use as an adult issue. Most tobacco users start doing so before the age of 25. Use of tobacco negatively impacts oral health. This study aims to assess the current oral health status as well as their awareness of the detrimental consequences of tobacco usage on oral health. Objectives of the Study 1. To assess the oral health status of adults consuming tobacco using observational checklist. 2. To determine the knowledge on hazards of tobacco consumption on oral health. 3. To find an association between oral health status and knowledge on hazards of tobacco consumption on oral health. Research Methodology: A descriptive correlative approach was used. Study was conducted in Primary Health Centre, Gwalior, M.P. Total sample 100 tobacco-using people, including 50 smokers and 50 chewers were selected using purposive sampling technique. Data was collected using a structured interview schedule and observation checklist. Data was analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics (unpaired t-test and chi-square test). Result: The findings revealed that there was no significance difference in knowledge scores between tobacco chewers and smokers (t 98= 0.7, p > 0.05). There was no significant difference between oral health status of the tobacco smokers and tobacco chewers (t 98 = 1.85, p >0.05). There was no correlation between knowledge on hazards of tobacco consumption on oral health and oral health status of the smokers. Chi square value showed significant association between occupation of tobacco smokers and oral health status (21 =9.09, p< 0.05). Interpretation and Conclusion: The study revealed that even though the adults had good knowledge on hazards of tobacco consumption on oral health they had poor oral health status. This confirms the necessity for undertaking educational programs to raise individuals' understanding of tobacco use and issues it causes in Youth.

    Medicinal plants hold significant value for researchers engaged in the study of plant and animal disease management.The objective of the study was to evaluate the chemical composition and antifungal activities of Garcinia kola (bitter kola) leaf extracts on cucumber fruit rot fungal pathogens.Garcinia kola leaf methanol extract at 5, 10, 15, 20, and 25mg/ml concentration was employed to assess the fungal inhibition, while the extract diluted with 1 mL of potato dextrose agar broth at 100, 50, 25, 20, 20, 15, 15, 10, and 5 mg/Ml, was utilised to assess thein-vitro minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC). Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS) was used to identify the compounds present in the G. kola leaves. The study found Botryodiploidiatheobromae, Fusariumoxysporium, and Aspergillus flavus in diseased cucumber fruits.As extract concentrations decreased, fungal mycelial growth inhibition decreased linearly. Synthetic fungicide, Mancozeb had the highest inhibition, having a specific inhibition value of23.0 mmon Aspergillus flavus, 26.23 on Fusariumoxysporium, and 26.70 on Botryodiploidiatheobromae, this was followed by 25mg/mlof the extract,having inhibition zone of 19.567 on Aspergillus flavus, 20.57 on Fusariumoxysporium, and19.01mmon Botryodiploidiatheobromae. Garcinia kola extract with lowest MIC was 100 mg/Ml, having a specific MIC value of 7.40 for Aspergillus flavus, 9.40 for Fusariumoxysporium, and 6.40 for Botryodiploidiatheobromae. However, 5 mg/mL of Garcinia kola extract had the highest MIC. The Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS) analysis, revealed the presence of 30 bioactive compounds with a variety of pharmacological activities. The predominant compounds include 2,5-Methanofuro[3,2-b]pyridine, octahydro- (21.416%), 5-Amino-2-methoxy phenol (17.539%), 2,5-Methanofuro[3,2-b]pyridine, oc (17.465%), and 8-Azabicyclo[5.1.0]octane (22.035%). Hence, the inhibitory effects of bitter cola leaf on Cucumber fruit rot fungal pathogens may be attributed to the presence of these compounds, suggesting their potential as a viable substitute for synthetic fungicides.

    Francis Galton, once asked “What’s in a face?”His main aim was to understand if there was a similar facial appearance for both. To do this, he made photographic composite images of both faces, he overlaid numerous images of faces onto a single plat creating one final composite face that had characteristics of each original face. He noticed that the composite face was much more attractive than the original faces. “This phenomenon is now known as the averageness effect, where attractive faces tend to be indicative of the average traits of the population. There are two main explanations (that follow the symmetric theory) that explain the attractiveness of the composite face. The evolutionary advantage theory proposes that individuals with symmetric faces tend to be more attractive. It draws upon the fact that they look healthier than those with unsymmetrical faces. Human genes are created to develop symmetrically. Asymmetric faces are formed from defects and small imperfections created before and after birth. Most of the people have slight facial asymmetry which in normal but some people have significant asymmetrical faces. Various etilogical factors contribute to facial asymmetry. It has a wide range of possibilities because of structures involved, structures in question and causative factors. Understanding the etiopathology and classifications of facial asymmetry helps for accurate diagnosis and treatment planning. Various authors have classified facial asymmetry on the bases of etiology or morphology, time of onset, structures involved, whereas some have described facial asymmetry on merely facial measurements. The sole purpose of this article is to provide all the classifications of facial asymmetry by various authors.

    Vitiated Dosha can be eliminated through the nearest possible route by five internal purification procedures, called Panchakarma. These are Vamana, Virechana, Basti, Nasya and Raktamokshana. Among these Basti Chikitsa is considered ‘ardhachikitsa’ by Acharya Charka, because Basti Chikitsa is the prime line of management for vitiated Vata Dosha. In Ayurveda, descriptions of different types of Basti are available, among which Matra Basti is one of the most important types. Surgical disorders like BPH, Fissure in ano, Osteoarthritis, Post-operative Pain, Sciatica, etc. are not satisfactorily managed by allopathic medicine and surgery. After the surgical management of BPH and Fissure in Ano, there is a high chance of recurrence. On the other hand, in Osteoarthritis, Post-operative Pain, and Sciatica, analgesics may develop many complications. So, in this article efforts are made to present the significance of Matra Basti in the management of surgical disorders.

    In the north of Côte d'Ivoire, sweet potato is a very abundant raw material. The peelings and leaves which constitute by-products are likely to be enriched in proteins. This study proposes to use the fermentation process as a means to increase the nutritional value of sweet potato by-products. Thus, cultivable bacteria and yeasts from sweet potato leaves and peels were counted and isolated following spontaneous fermentation. Subsequently, a controlled fermentation was carried out with twelve (12) microorganisms isolated on a shredded leaf, a shredded peel then on a proportional mixture of shredded leaf and peelings of two varieties of sweet potato. Samples were taken on day 0, on the 5th and 10th day of fermentation in order to determine the pH as well as the protein content of the various substrates. The results showed a diversity of bacteria and yeasts capable of producing protein from sweet potato leaves and peels. Among these microorganisms used, the LevE03 yeast provided a satisfactory result with an increase in the amount of protein ranging from 2.56g/100g to 17g/100g, i.e. an enrichment rate of more than 500% after fermentation of the leaves of sweet potato by this yeast. The LevE03 yeast is of particular interest for the enrichment of the leaf substrate in protein.
