2.      Phytochemical, antioxidant and antidiabetic characterizations of custard apple (Annona squamosa L.) genotypes
         It is informed to the scientific community that fruit pulp of custard apple genotypes DS-1, Aml-10 and Aml-6 acquired higher antidiabetic potential (as α amylase inhibition) and antioxidant activity (as % DPPH free radical scavenging). The ascorbic acids and phenols contributed positively for both antidiabetic and antioxidant potentials in fruit pulp of custard apple. Phytochemicals analysis illustrated that terpenoids and flavonoids present in fruit pulp are positively correlated with antioxidant activity and that of alkaloids contributed significantly positive correlation for antidiabetic potential.

Year 2021-22
1.     BCJ-62: Development and characterization of polymer based nanofertilizers and their response to wheat
       Chitosan nanoparticles (CS-NPs) were synthesized and examined greater than 40 mV zeta potential indicating good stability. The urea, tricalcium phosphate and muriate of potash were used as sources for incorporation of N, P and K elements individually onto the CS-NPs and the elevation of size of the nanofertilizers, without aggregation of nanoparticles, were observed. Scanning electron micrograph illustrated spherical shape of the CS-NPs and gave the idea about the morphology of incorporated NPK nanofertilizers. The FTIR study indicated that there is a electrostatic interaction occurs between the charges of CS-NPs and the N P K elements, resulted to stretching of spectra (peak) at specific wavelength confirming the incorporation of N P and K elements on to the CS-NPs. The application of 5% NPK nanofertilizers (10 time less) on wheat suggested higher nutritional seed quality and maintained yield equivalent to chemical fertilizers. The cost-effective NPK-nanofertilizers thus developed may save the forex (subsidy) about 38.22%. It has better controlled-release system in a liquid formulation to enhance nutrient use efficiency and sustained crop growth.

       Native halophilic bacterial strains isolated from agricultural soils of coastal regions of Saurashtra have potential for application in both industries and agriculture. The promising performance of these isolates in terms of plant growth promoting characteristics such as nitrogen fixing capacity, solubilization of phosphate and potash, production of IAA, siderophore along with production of biochemically important enzymes and bioactive compounds such as chitinase, cellulase, protease, carotene, ectoine, glycine betaine was observed. Halophilic bacterial isolates were Halomonas pacifica strain_JAU_7B (MK955347), H. pacifica strain_JAU_20A (MK575078), H. pacifica strain_JAU_22A (MK042491), H. pacifica strain_JAU_22C (MK043087), H. pacifica strain_JAU_25A (MK116946), H. pacifica strain_JAU_29A (MK114047), H. pacifica strain_JAU_36A(MK114047), H. pacifica strain_JAU_36B (MK114047), H. stenophila strain_JAU_37A (MK961217), Oceanobacillus aidingensis strain_JAU_39B (MK148253), H. pacifica strain_JAU_40B (MK114047), Bacillus haynesii strain_JAU_41A (MK157609), B. licheniformis strain_JAU_43A (MK118996), B. haynesii strain_JAU_43B (MK157608) and B. haynesii strain_JAU_45A (MK157609) which confirmed through molecular characterization by 16srRNA
4.     Biochemical appraisal of enzymatic activities from soils of permanent plot experiment at JAU, Junagadh
       The soil enzyme activity studied viz., urease, acid phosphatase, alkaline phosphatase, −Galactosidase and nitrate reductase, from the plot having different fertilizer applications, remains higher during the mid-season and found to be lower before sowing and after harvest of the crop. Minimum variation of enzyme activity was observed in a plot of only FYM treatment (25 tons/ha). The activity of urease, B−Galactosidase and B−gluosidase as well as acid phosphatase and alkaline phosphatase was enhanced by balance fertilizer application (100 % NPK (25:50:50) as per soil test as well as 25 tons/ha FYM application. The pod yield of groundnut was remained highly positively correlated with urease, acid phosphatase and alkaline phosphatase enzyme activity.
5.       Diversity analysis of fresh water diatoms through SEM-EDX from surface microalgae of water bodies of Junagadh region
       The scientific community involved in diatom study of fresh water in context to climate change and environment are recommended to use cataloguing of fresh water diatoms collection images from water bodies in and around JAU, Junagadh. Total 46 species of diatoms were identified from water bodies of Junagadh, out of which eleven genera viz., Cyclotella, Melosira, Navicula, Achnanthes, Amphora, Synedra, Nitzschia, Gomphonema, Hantzschia, Pinnularia and Fragillaria were predominant.The sizeable variation among the elements presents on freshwater algae through SEM EDAX showed the presence of all macro elements except phosphorus and nitrogen. All species of diatoms had higher amount of diversity indices including Shannon-Wiener diversity index (3.57) and Berger Parker Dominance (30.57). Morphometric analysis showed wider variability in location and species wise according to length (7.049 μm to 43.08 μm) and width (2.53 μm to 23.44 μm) as well
as diversity indices too. Willington dam site showed maximum spp. variation of diatoms than the other location.
Year 2022-23
1.         Development of biochemical and molecular markers for heat tolerance in chickpea
The chickpea genotype namely ICC-4958 was identified highly tolerant when exposed to 42/37 oC temperature at germination stage. This genotype had high antioxidant activity, ascorbic acid, glutathione, super oxide dismutase, ascorbate peroxidase, glutathione reductase along with Quinone oxidoreductase, glutaredoxine and heat shock protein 70. SSR markers namely Cam1536, TA27, TR 58 could also reveal this genotype different at DNA level. Hence, this genotype can be exploited in breeding to develop heat tolerant lines/varieties of chickpea.
2.         Diversity analysis of marine diatoms through SEM-EDX from surface microalgae of saurashtra coastal belt
The scientific community working on diatoms of coastal belt of Saurashtra are recommended to use diatoms diversity analysis done through Scanning electron microscopy as ready references. The diatom analysis of marine samples from three locations (Okha,Veraval and Aadri) identified fifty diatom species and most of them are pennate types. The Cocconeis spp, Grammatophora spp, Fragilaria sp, Nitzschia sp, Navicula sp., Achnanthes spp and Licmophora were found dominant diatoms on the surface of microalgae. Again, diatom abundance of Cocconeis scutellum was reported higher than 52% of total diatom considering three locations. The energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) graph prepared for individual species of diatoms from SEM images observed that the frustules of the diatoms wereother than Si. It has many elements at various sites attached to them. The catalogue of diatoms and alfa-diversity index revealed many diverse rich populations in coastal belt of Saurashtra
