|Abstract: ||Tissue Culture- Oak trees are important plants of Himalayas but due to many reasons their regeneration is deteriorating. Tissue culture technique is the only method to conserve and regenerate them. Scientists at G. B. Pant Institute of Himalayan Environment and Development, Almora developed a regeneration protocol for Quercus floribunda Lindl.
Vegetable- Discolouration of the surface of peeled baby carrots occurs due to
reversible surface dehydration and
irreversible formation of lignin which
affect their storage quality and shelf-life.
Edible coatings have been applied to the
surface of fresh carrots to control white
surface discolouration by acting as
moisture barrier or surface moisturizer .
