Impact of weather factor on shoot borer of sugarcane incidence in new cauvery delta region of Tamilnadu and its management.

Paper ID- AMA-30-12-2022-11926

Surveys and surveillance were conducted in sugarcane fields both in plant and ratoon crops distributed in Orthanadu and Vallam block in New Cauvery delta area of Thanjavur dictrict during three consecutive years 2019- 22 with an objective to assess the incidence of Early shoot borer in New Cauvery delta area of Thanjavur dictrict. Fortnightly fixed plot observation was taken. The Maximium and minimum temperature, RH and quantity of rain and rainy days also recorded daily and consolidated on monthly basis and weather parameters were correlated with the incidence of Early shoot borer. The results revealed that the maximum incidence of early shoot borer 36.5 percent. The result shows that the average temperature is positively correlated (r = 0.6690) with incidence of shoot borer and negatively correlated with rainfall (r = -0.7134) and humidity (r = -0.0903). In the field trial combination of Single bud treated with Trichoderma asperellum (TNAU)@ 4 g l-1 + soil application @ 2.5 kg ha-1 along with S4 (Intercropping with sunhemp + installation of sex pheromone traps @ 50 ha-1 (mass trapping) + need based spraying of Cartaphydrachloride @ 1kg ha-1) effectively increases the germination percentage of 85.16 % and decrease the shoot borer incidence by 45 percent which is significantly different from other treatment.

The field experiment was conducted during kharif, 2016 and kharif, 2017 to examine the effect of organic and inorganic products of silicon and bio fertilizers in inducing resistance against white backed plant hopper (WBPH) on rice. It was observed that silicon taken by rice plants in various treatments declined the population of WBPH as compared to control treatment. The treatment RHA+PF+KSB (T8) was the most effective treatment in reducing infestation followed by CaSiO3+PF+KSB (T5) and CaSiO3+KSB (T4), respectively. Silicon content was observed to be more in T5 followed by T8 and T4 treatments. The grain yield was highest in T5 (4475.83 kg/ha) followed by T8 (4173.33 kg/ha) and T4 (4103.17 kg/ha). The treatment T5 contained highest percentage of Si i.e., 7.71 % and 6.89 % at vegetative stage and reproductive stage, respectively. WBPH incidence at both the stages was significantly and negatively correlated to Si content (r= -0.714 and -0.770, respectively).

The Relationship of Food Intake to Nutritional Status in Children with Disabilities

Paper ID- AMA-24-12-2022-11922

Children who have disabilities or special needs are more likely to have physical impairments, which may include deficiencies in motor function, body form, or body size. Physical impairments are prevalent. Children who need particular care are included in the category of high-risk individuals. The health problems are also not considerably different from those that are experienced by children and adolescents in the general population. One of these concerns is a nutritional intake that is either insufficient or excessive. The objective of this study is to investigate the relationship between having a disability and the nutritional condition of children who have disabilities. The data for this research were collected via the use of a cross-sectional design and a thorough sampling method from forty children with disabilities who voluntarily gave their agreement to take part in the study. The retrieval of information via the use of a food intake questionnaire. It was shown that 52.50 percent of children with disabilities had a nutritional status of 21 or above, which is regarded to be normal. The majority of those that participated in this study were female. The consumption of carbs was the most abundant (441.7 g), while the intake of vitamins was the least abundant (0.27 g). The vast majority of children with disabilities exhibit normal levels of nutritional health. Protein and vitamin intake in the diet are directly connected to a person's nutritional health.

Efficacy of Synthetic and Biopesticides Against thrips, (Scirtothrips dorsalis Hood) in Chilli

Paper ID- AMA-24-12-2022-11921

Investigations on “Efficacy of synthetic and biopesticides against thrips, (Scirtothrips dorsalis Hood) in chilli” were carried out at Samajik Vigyan Kendra, Dr. B. R. Ambedkar University Rehti, (Village Bordi) Tehsil- Nasrullaganj, Distt- Sehore (M.P.) during Rabi, 2018-19 and 2019-20. A total of ten treatments including untreated control was taken to test their efficacy. Based on the mean per cent reduction in thrips population in all three sprays the treatment of fipronil (77.48%), was found to be the most effective, followed by spinosad (73.53%), emamectin benzoate (71.99%), thiamethoxam (70.23%) former three treatments were statistically at par with each other in their efficacy. The treatments of carbosulfan 25 EC (67.09%), propalgite 57 EC (66.57%), neem (65.10%) and fenpropathrin 30 EC (64.78%) percent reduction, formed a moderately effective group of insecticides. The minimum reduction was noticed in bifenthrin 10 EC (58.65%). The highest fruit yield of 106.26 q ha-1 was recorded in the plots treated with fipronil, followed by thiamethoxam (104.20 q ha-1), emamectin benzoate (100.35 q ha-1), spinosad (98.11 q ha-1). The lowest fruit yield was recorded in the plots treated with neem (56.95 q ha-1) followed by bifenthrin (60.50 q ha-1). The maximum cost-benefit ratio of 1:2.98 was recorded in the treatment of fipronil, followed by thiamethoxam (1:2.91), emamectin benzoate (1:2.79) and spinosad, (1:2.72). The cost-benefit ratio of 1:2.38, 1:1.87, 1:1.61, 1:1.49, and 1:1.43 were recorded in the treatments of fenpropathrin, carbosulfan, propelgit, bifenthrinand neem respectively. The descending order of insecticides effective in controlling this pest and their order of efficacy was fipronil> spinosad>emamectin benzoate> thiamethoxam>carbosulfan>propalgite> neem>fenpropathrin& bifenthrin.

Interactive effects of conservation tillage practices and precision nitrogen management options on the performance of Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) in Indo-Gangetic Plains

Paper ID- AMA-24-12-2022-11920

This two year of study was conducted during 2017–18 and 2018-19 to assess the influence of Conservation tillage practices (CTPs) and precision nitrogen management practices (PNM) on wheat genotype DBW-17 in sandy loam soil of Modipuram, Meerut, Uttar Pradesh. The experiment comprising four crop establishment methods (CEMs) [(Zero tillage (ZT), reduced tillage (RT), furrow irrigation raised beds (FIRB), conventional tillage (CT)] in the main plot and five precision nitrogen management options [N 80:20, N 33:33:33, N 80 – LCC, N 50:50 and farmers fertilization practice in sub-plot and laid out in split-plot design with three replications. The results of the current experiment showed that the use of a furrow irrigated raised bed system (FIRB) and the application of nutrients like N 80-LCC for wheat seemed to be the best combination for achieving higher crop growth characteristics and yield under the north-western plain zone of Uttar Pradesh. So, during two years of study, it was confirmed that FIRB and N 80- LCC based practices on wheat fertilizer demand could significantly increase efficiency and achieve a higher yield level, which provides a theoretical basis for the realization of the synergistic combination.
