... width, total weight and shell weight (P<0.05). The incidence of type II locus (hemi-methylation locus) was also significantly positively associated with growth rates of the shell height and the shell length, and Pearson correlation coefficients were 0.268 and 0.298, respectively. The results indicated that genome methylation of P. fucata may play a pivotal role in the formation of growth trait, and could be considered for growth trait selecti...

...ht, cocoon weigh, cocoon shell weight, pupal weight in infected group was 9.3%, 8.8%, 11.4% and 10.2%, respectively, lower than that of control group. Although the groups obtain a similar group oviposition, group good oviposition and group oviposition rate (P>0.05), the single oviposition, single good oviposition and single oviposition rate were significantly reduced by infected leaves. Furthermore, to elucidate the molecular resistance mechanism of fruit m...

...y basis. Egg weight, egg shell weight, egg shell thickness, Haugh unit, albumin height and yolk weight were determined on weekly basis. The results showed that FS supplementation significantly (P<0.05) decreased feed intake (g/hen/day) at all recorded stages. Overall higher feed intake was noted for the control treatment while lower feed intake was noticed for treatment FS-1. Significantly higher (P<0.05) egg production was recorded for treatment FS-0.5 ...

...weight, filament length, shell weight, denier, fibroin and sericin contents) and biological traits (fresh weight of each larva, silk gland, pupa and moth) of silkworm, Bombyx mori L. (Lepidoptera: Bombycidae) have been enhanced with natural food supplements. The current review highlights details about the overview of sericulture, constrains of sericulture industry being faced by local farmers in Pakistan and impact of natural food supplements on silkworms grow...

...W), albumen weight (AW), shell weight (SW), shell index (SI), yolk ratio (YR), albumen ratio (AR) and shell ratio (SR). Potchefstroom Koekoek layer genotype eggs (n = 200) were used. Pearson correlation and analysis of variance (ANOVA) were used for analysis. Correlation results indicated that egg weight had a statistical significant correlation (P < 0.05) with egg quality traits. Egg weight displayed a positive highly significant correlation with EL (0.82)...

Organic acids also have promising effect on gut health evidenced by positive effect on all the intestinal parameters. Moreover, they known to improve meat production in broilers by increasing the nutrients absorption from gut. This review article discussed all the key ...
