Statement A: Pesticides used for spraying are not volatile.
Statement B: Fumigants are volatile
Which of the two statement is true
Pesticides used for spraying are not volatile. Fumigants are volatile that spread evenly all over the storage area. Nowadays, with the increased use of non-volatile, thermally labile pesticides (imidazoles, benzimidazoles, carbamates, neonico- tinoids, benzoyl ureas, etc.), techniques other than GC/MS are needed to analyze the complete range of commonly used pesticides Fumigant, any volatile, poisonous substance used to kill insects and other animals or plants that damage stored foods or seeds, human dwellings, clothing, and nursery stock.soil fumigants are sprayed or spread over an area to be cultivatedand are worked into the soil to control disease-causing fungi, nematodes, and weeds.

Poultry farming is undertaken to raise following
(a) Egg production
(b) Feather production
(c) Chicken production
(d) Milk Production
Poultry farming is undertaken to raise egg and chicken production. Poultry farming is the process of raising domesticated birds such as chickens, ducks, turkeys and geese for the purpose of farming meat or eggs for food. Poultry are farmed in great numbers with chickens being the most numerous.More than 50 billion chickens are raised annually as a source of food, for both their meat and their eggs Chickens raised for eggs are usually called layers while chickens raised for meat are often called broilers. Poultry Farming can be kept by enthusiastic individuals in a back garden or on an allotment, or intensive farming production systems with a large acreage and high turn-over.

................. is the practice of maintaining honeybee colonies.
Beekeeping or apiculture is the maintenance of honey bee colonies, commonly in man-made hives, by humans. A beekeeper (or apiarist) keeps bees in order to collect their honey and other products that the hive produces (including beeswax, propolis, pollen, and royal jelly), to pollinate crops, or to produce bees for sale to other beekeepers. A location where bees are kept is called an apiary or "bee yard."

The method maximum used in cattle breeding is
Cattle breeding are done to improve the varieties for animals for milk and meat. Cattle breeding involve artificial insemination. The insemination involves collection of semen from exotic or superior male and delivering to female genital tract for fertilization.
The cross breeding between two different species of the same genus is called interspecific hybridization. Interspecific hybrids are bred by mating individuals from two species, normally from within the same genus. The offspring display traits and characteristics of both parents, but are often sterile, preventing gene flow between the species. Sterility is often attributed to the different number of chromosomes between the two species. For example, donkeys have 62 chromosomes, horses have 64 chromosomes, and mules have 63 chromosomes. interspecific hybrids cannot produce viable gametes, because differences in chromosome structure prevent appropriate pairing and segregation during meiosis, meiosis is disrupted, and viable sperm and eggs are not formed. A variety of mechanisms limit the success of hybridization, including the large genetic difference between most species. Barriers include morphological differences, differing times of fertility, mating behaviors and cues, and physiological rejection of sperm cells or the developing embryo. Some act before fertilization; others after it.In plants, some barriers to hybridization include blooming period differences,

The science of vegetable culture is called horticulture. Horticulture is the science and art of growing (plants) -fruits, vegetables, flowers, and any other cultivar. It also includes plant conservation, landscape restoration, soil management, landscape and garden design, construction, and maintenance, and arboriculture.Horticulturists apply their knowledge, skills, and technologies used to grow intensively produced plants for human food and non-food uses and for personal or social needs.
