Radiation and Radioisotopes Applied to Insects of Agricultural Importance (Athens, April ) If you would like to learn more about the IAEA’s work, sign up for our weekly updates containing our most important news, multimedia and more. ionizing radiation has been the main method of inducing sterility in mass-reared insects for Area-Wide IPM programs that integrate the SIT. Once the absorbed dose is achieved, the irradiation. Book review Full text access Radiation and Radioisotopes applied to Insects of Agricultural Importance. (Proceedings of a Symposium on the Use and Application of Radioisotopes and Radiation in the Control of Plant and Animal Insect Pests— Jointly Organized by the International Atomic Energy Agency and the Food and Agricultural Organization of. management practices in important agricultural crops like wheat, rice and maize (Hera, ). Study of soil characteristics is extremely valuable in devising effective methods of farming. Radioactive isotopes can be used as “tags” to monitor uptake and use of essential nutrients by plants from soil (IAEA, ).
Radiation, radioactivity, and insects. [R D O'Brien; L S Wolfe; American Institute of Biological Sciences.; U.S. Atomic Energy Commission.] -- This book is intended for two audiences. One is made u of entomologists and other biologists who want to know the way in which research with radiation and radioisotopes has advanced our. Book: Radiation, radioactivity, and insects. + pp. Abstract: This book is intended both for entomologists and other biologists who wish to know the ways in which research with radiation and radioisotopes has advanced man's understanding of insects and also for those with a knowledge of radiation and radioisotopes who. The use of nuclear radiation and radio isotopes in agriculture provides powerful techniques which have already been successfully applied for solving some basic problems like low agricultural productivity and pre and post harvest losses. etc. The scientific endeavours are envisaged in developing the higher yielding, disease and insect. Agriculture Organization (FAO) has been involved in the use of isotopes and radiation in insect control since Isotopes are used as tags or markers, for instance, of chemical molecules, insects, or plants. For example, with these tags one can follow the fate of insecticides within insects and the environment; the incorporation of.
Nair, K. K., and G. W. Rahalkar. Studies on the effects of gamma radiation on the different developmental stages of the khapra beetle, Trogoderma granarium Everts, pp. –In Proceedings, Symposium: Radiation and Radioisotopes Applied to Insects of Agricultural Importance. Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, and International Atomic Energy Agency, 22–26 April. In agricultural ecosystems the important ecosystem functions, mostly provided by insects, are systematically removed. Insect pests are created through the manipulation of habitats by humans, where crops are selected for larger size, higher yields, nutritious value, and are cultivated in monocultures for maximum production. radioactive isotopes and radiation that have become available as by-product of nuclear reactors are of greater importance to agriculture. Their contributions to food and agriculture is indirect, but nevertheless of immense potential. The use of isotopes as tracer tools is unquestionably one of. Applied Radiation and Isotopes provides a high quality medium for the publication of substantial, original and scientific and technological papers on the development and peaceful application of nuclear, radiation and radionuclide techniques in chemistry, physics, biochemistry, biology, medicine, security, engineering and in the earth, planetary and environmental sciences, all including dosimetry.
