AMA, Agricultural Mechanization in Asia, Africa and Latin America (ISSN: 00845841) is a peer-reviewed journal. The journal covers Agricultural and Biological Sciences and all sort of engineering topic. the journal's scopes are in the following fields but not limited to:
Wheat (Triticum aestivum) is an important cereal crop of the world. Major biotic stress on wheat yield is the weeds. Wheat growing areas are now suffering from deficiency of micronutrients. Field experiment was conducted at RRS, Bawal during Rabi season of 2018-19 to evaluate the post-emergence herbicidal combinations with Zn or/and Fe in wheat. Experiment consisted of 18 treatments replicated thrice, was laid out in Randomized Block Design. Four herbicidal combinations viz. clodinafop + metsulfuron @ 60 g/ha, sulfosulfuron + metsulfuron @ 32 g/ha, mesosulfuron + iodosulfuron @ 14.4 g/ha, pinoxaden + carfentrazone @ (50 + 20g/ha) were evaluated with Zn, Fe and with both Zn as well as Fe. Yield components as well as grain yield of wheat increased significantly under the influence of herbicidal treatments over weedy check. Addition of iron and zinc to the herbicidal combinations resulted into increase in yield components and grain yield of wheat. Application of combined (Zn + Fe) with herbicidal combinations enhanced the grain yield of wheat significantly over application of sole herbicidal combinations. Highest grain yield was obtained under the influence of mesosulfuron + iodosulfuron @ 14.4 g/ha + ZnSO4 (0.5 %) + urea (2.5 %) + FeSO4 (0.5 %).
The existing area of vegetable planting in India is declining and cannot meet demand due to lack of mechanization. Labor costs associated with sowing and transplanting operations in vegetable planting are very high. Therefore, mechanization in sowing is important for increasing the area of vegetable planting. In this regard, a precision multi-variety transplanter for onion cultivation was evaluated for the selected onion crop, the local sowing variety Punjab Naroyawas. The sowing interval was adjusted to 0.02x0.75 m in the laboratory. A 1.25 m wide floor was created by a rotary cultivator and bedformer, and the average fuel consumption was 6.93 and 7.01 lh -1 for cultivated and non-cultivated soils, respectively. Four lines of onions were sown on each bed using a pneumatic transplanter. Average speed 3. 36Km.H -1, average fuel consumption 2.65Lh -1, average RTR spacing, 20.42cm, the average depth of the seed 2 cm, the average PTP spacing 7.86Cm, average field amount 0. 17Ha.H - It was 1. The mean observation index (PI) of the transplanter was 4.52%. Mean bulbs weight and yield of onion seed by pneumatic precision-mix transplantation machine, 57.45G and 9,562kg. acre relative grafting method -1 and 57.86g and 10,515Kg. Acre -1 was. The cost and time savings of the pneumatic precision high-mix transplanter were 55.12% and 98.53% compared to the transplantation method. The profit-cost ratios for onion sowing by the pneumatic precision high-mix transplanter and the manual transplantation method were 5.11: 1 and 2.62: 1, respectively.
