Monocyclic

Having one cycle per season.

Monoculture

Growing the same crop on the same piece of land year after year.

Monocropping

When only one type of crop is grown on the land.

Monocotyledonous

An embryo having a single cotyledon.

Monitoring

Observing and noting specific details, e.g., particular aspects of the growth of plant's in an experiment; the farmer's use of specific varieties or types of cultivation in specific areas.

Jul

Potential yield

The maximum yield of a cultivar in the absence of any abiotic or biotic stress. E.g., yield obtained in the absence of yield-limiting factors such as water, fertilizer, proper cropping practices and in the absence of yield-reducing factors such as pests and natural calamities.

Molluscicide

A pesticide that kills molluscs (such as snails).

Potential Evapo-Transpiration (PET)

The loss of moisture by direct evaporation and transpiration from vegetation; a pressure measured in mm.

Mollic epipedon

Thick, dark surface soil horizon, highly saturated by bivalent cations (Ca++ and Mg++).

Potassium fixation

The process of converting exchangeable or water-soluble potassium to moderately soluble potassium.

11
Jul

Potassium deficiency

The symptoms of potassium deficiency are characterized by stunted plants, with smaller leaves, short and thin stems, reduced tillering, dark green plants with yellowish brown necrotic spots appearing first on the tip of older leaves then along the leaf margin and finally on the leaf base. The upper leaves are short droopy and dark green, lower leaves may bend downward and yellow stripes develop along the leaf interveins. In K deficient fields, there is an increase incidence of disease.

Molecular weight

The sum of the atomic weights of a molecule's constituent atoms.

11
Jul

Potassium

A reactive alkali metal element essential for plant growth and proper development.

Molecular marker

A molecular signpost used in eukaryotic gene isolation. Usually a rflp probe or a primer site for DNA amplification.

Post Harvest tillage

It immediately after the harvest of the crop, the soil is tilled e.g. Paddy, Sugarcane, Napier sod or turf crop. The objectives are To remove stiff stubble, To turn under trashes & weeds, To improve the physical condition of the soil and To break up clay pans. The Advantages are Prevents seed setting of late maturing annuals, Eliminates the seedlings of annuals and biennials and Exhausts the population of self sown seeds avoiding the admixtures in the forthcoming crop seasons.

Mold

1) A cavity where a molten metal is shaped, as in casting.
2) A downy or furry growth on the damp surface of organic matter, generally caused by saprophytic fungi with conspicuous mycelia or spore masses.

Moisture tester

Experimental equipment and instruments used to test the moisture (water) content of the soil, plant or seeds.
