Aloe vera in White Leghorn Layer Diet
M. Moorthy,C. Mehala,S. Saravanan,S.C. Edwin
International Journal of Poultry Science , 2009,
Abstract: Two hundred and eighty commercial layer chicks belonging to single hatch were purchased from local hatchery, wing banded, weighed and randomly allotted into four treatment groups with four replicates of ten chicks each. The chicks were reared in cages in a gable roofed, open sided house. All the chicks were provided with uniform floor, feeder and waterer space and were reared under standard management conditions throughout the experimental period. Treatment groups were T1- control; T2-0.1% aloe vera powder; T3-0.1% aloe vera + 0.1% Curcuma longa powder and T4-0.1% of aloe vera and 0.1% of probiotic powder There was significant (p<0.05) difference in hen housed egg production, feed conversion ratio and return over feed cost in one percent aloe vera fed group compared to other treatment groups. No significant difference was observed in feed consumption, percent hen day egg production and percent broken eggs. It can be concluded that inclusion of 0.1 percent aloe vera in White Leghorn diet is economical compared to its combination with turmeric and probiotic at 0.1 percent level.
Panchagavya and Andrographis paniculata as Alternatives to Antibiotic Growth Promoter on Broiler Production and Carcass Characteristics
R. Mathivanan,S.C. Edwin,R. Amutha,K. Viswanathan
International Journal of Poultry Science , 2006,
Abstract: A biological experiment was conducted to study the effect of panchagavya and Andrographis paniculata as alternatives to antibiotic growth promoter on broiler production and carcass characteristics with one hundred and eighty commercial, straight run day-old broiler chicks. The chicks were fed basal diet (T1), basal diet with virginiamycin -20 mg/kg (T2), basal diet with panchagavya -7.5 g/kg (T3), basal diet with A. paniculata -2.0 g/kg (T4), basal diet with probiotics -0.5 g/kg (T5) and basal diet with mannanoligosaccharide (MOS) - 2.0 g/kg from 1 to 28 days and 0.5 g/kg from 29 to 42 days growing period (T6) for 6 weeks period. The result revealed that the mean body weight and weight gain of T6, T5 and T3 groups were significantly (P<0.05) higher as compared to the body weight of T2 and T1 groups at 6 weeks of age. The feed consumption did not show any difference between treatment groups. The FCR was (P<0.05) better in T4 (1.87) compared to T1 and T2 groups, which recorded inferior FCR (2.04 each) at 6 weeks of age. Livability did not differ between treatment groups from 1 to 6 weeks of age. The carcass characteristics, cut-up parts of carcass and sensory qualities of meat did not differ due to dietary supplements.
Production Performance and Carcass Traits of Broilers Fed with Sunflower Acid Oil
N.S. Jayalakshmi,R. Mathivanan,R. Amutha,S.C. Edwin
International Journal of Poultry Science , 2006,
Abstract: The influence of sunflower acid oil (SFAO) usage on production performance, carcass traits and economics of broilers were studied. SFAO was analyzed for its ME value by conducting metabolic trial and result revealed that the AME and TME value of SFAO were 4.398 and 4.453 kcal/g, respectively. The feeding trial was conducted by using two hundred commercial, straight run day-old broiler chicks. These chicks were randomly grouped into five treatments with four replicates of ten chicks each and fed basal diet (T1), basal diet with 1 (T2), 2 (T3), 3 (T4) and 4 (T5) percent of SFAO for a period of six weeks. The results revealed that there was no significant difference in body weight gain, cumulative feed consumption, cumulative feed conversion ratio and livability between treatment groups from first week till the end of the experiment. The carcass yield, abdominal fat pad weight and thickness also did not differ significantly between treatments. Inclusion of SFAO at 1, 2 and 3 percent in broiler diet increased the net profit per kg live weight by 2.8, 1.8 and 3.7 percent, respectively as compared to control group. It was concluded that 3 percent SFAO can be safely included in broiler diet without affecting production performance with increase in net profit per kg live weight.
Vegetable fibers as multifunctional materials
Amico, S.C.;
Matéria (Rio de Janeiro) , 2010, DOI: 10.1590/S1517-70762010000200037
Abstract: concerns related to the ever-growing use of raw-materials from non-renewable sources by modern society is driving the interest of the academic and scientific sectors for a new concept of material, which takes into account not only mechanical performance, cost and availability, but also environmentally-related issues, such as biodegradability, renewability and energy use, along with the promotion of social and economical development of the economically-challenged segment of the population. vegetable fibers have been used in many home-made objects, such as ropes and artcraft, for perhaps as long as humanity exists. however, these fibers present a combination of interesting properties which enables their use in a wide variety of sectors. this invited article will review the work recently carried out by the author in collaboration with various researchers from ufrgs, ufpr and ucs, and will be divided into three case studies, focusing on the use of vegetable fibers for oil sorption, as infiltration (flow) medium and as reinforcement for polymer composites, promoting their use in more demanding and rewarding applications.

Medicine : Science or Art?
S.C. Panda
Mens Sana Monographs , 2006,
Abstract: Debate over the status of medicine as an Art or Science continues. The aim of this paper is to discuss the meaning of Art and Science in terms of medicine, and to find out to what extent they have their roots in the field of medical practice. What is analysed is whether medicine is an "art based on science"; or, the "art of medicine" has lost its sheen (what with the rapid advancements of science in course of time, which has made present day medicine more sophisticated). What is also analysed is whether the "science of medicine" is a pure one, or merely applied science; or the element of science in it is full of uncertainty, simply because what is accepted as "scientific" today is discarded by medical practitioners tomorrow in the light of newer evidence. The paper also briefly touches upon how, in the field of present medical education, the introduction of medical humanities or humanistic education has the potential to swing the pendulum of medicine more towards the lost "art of medicine". The paper concludes by saying that the art and science of medicine are complementary. For successful practice, a doctor has to be an artist armed with basic scientific knowledge in medicine.
Integrated management of web blight of urd and mung bean
Indian Phytopathology , 2012,
Abstract: The treatment combinations based on bio-agent Gliocladium virens (Trichoderma virens), Karanj (Pongamia glabra) cake, carboxin and Rhizobium were evaluated in integration of three methods as soil application,foliar spray and seed treatment for the management of web blight of urd (Vigna mungo) and mung (Vigna radiata) bean caused by Thanatephorus cucumeris (=Rhizoctonia solam) under sick field conditions. The integration of soil application of Karanj cake (2 q ha'), seed treatment with G. virens (10 6 spores/ml/10g seed) + carboxin (1 g kg-1)+ Rhizobium sp.
