Response of organic fertilizer (organic manure) in Moong bean

Paper ID- AMA-02-10-2021-10760

Response of organic fertilizer (organic manure) on moong bean (Vigna radiata. (L.)) under arid climate were conducted at Adoptive Trail Center (ATC) abuser, Jhunjhunu and at five different location farmer’s field during two kharif seasons of 2019 and 2020. In these experiments different combinations of organic fertilizer (organic manure) were used for comparison. Experiments were laid in randomized block design with five treatments and five replication at Adoptive Trail Center (ATC) abuser, Jhunjhunu and in strip at farmer’s field. IPM 02-3 variety of mung-bean (Vigna radiata (L.) for zone 2nd A was used. Among all sources, application of 75% N application through Vermicompost + BF and matka khad (two spray at 30 and 45 DAS) was recorded highest plant height, number of branch per plant, Test weight, number of grain per pod, grain yield, straw yield and biological yield then other organic fertilizer during both years, while application 100% N application through Vermicompost ranked second.

The study was carried out in three markets of Imphal west district and two markets of Bishnupur district due to having the traditional knowledge of dry fermented fish predominantly a total of 120 respondents were randomly selected the fish marketing enterprise in these areas is slightly dominated by the females in the study area. The income range of 41.67 per cent of the business falls annually in the range of ₹3 to 7 lakhs. Total three marketing channels involves for transferring dry fermented fish to the ultimate consumers. The total marketing cost, marketing margin and the price spread was found to be highest in channel-I with ₹15, ₹65 and ₹80, respectively; out of the total 75.00 per cent sold of fish including dry fermented fish and 91.67 per cent of the marketers maintained that fish supply is very regular, while most of the respondents (90.00 per cent) found as an profitable venture. During the market conduct cent per cent of the respondents get information on market situation through personal contact, even the buyers shows that majority (61.67 per cent) arrived through haggling, whereas 55.00 per cent said prices were fixed by both the sellers and the agents. The constraints are transportation, lack of storage facilities, breakage / leakage of pots, presence of exploitative middlemen etc, It is recommended that local fish marketers should be organized into co-operative groups and government should adequately provide good market facilities to improve market efficiency to reduce the marketing cost.

The Effect of Steckling Size and Plant Spacing on Growth Parameters of Carrot (Daucus carota L.)

Paper ID- AMA-30-09-2021-10749

Carrot (Daucus carota L.) with chromosome number (2n) = 18 and belonging to the family Umbelliferaeis one of the important root vegetable crops. In India, root to seed is the standard method for the production of high quality seed as this method allows for the selection of healthy and true to type roots for the planting of stecklings. If the seed quality is not good, it may again be difficult to get enough number of uniform roots. This study was conducted at Seed Research Area of Department of Vegetable Science, Chaudhary Charan Singh Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar during spring-summer season of 2018-19. The experiment comprised five treatments of plant spacing (60 x 30 cm (Flat), 60 x 45 cm (Flat), 60 x 60 cm (Flat), 60 x 30 cm (Single row on ridge), 60 x 45 cm (Paired row on ridge) and three steckling size (8 cm, 6 cm and 4 cm) was laid out in Randomized Block Design with three replications. Number of branches per plant and number of secondary umbels per plant was found maximum with plant spacing of 60 x 60 cm (Flat) at final harvest. However, maximum number of branches and number of secondary umbels per plant were found at steckling size of 8 cm which was found to be at par with steckling size of 6 cm.

Enhancing Productivity and Profitability of Pearl millet Through Mechanized Interculture, Suitable Crop Geometry and Agro-chemicals Under Rainfed Conditions

Paper ID- AMA-30-09-2021-10748

A field experiment was carried out during Kharif (July to October) season of 2017 and 2018 at CCSHAU Regional Research Station, Bawal, India to enhance the productivity and profitability of pearl millet through mechanized interculture, suitable crop geometry and agro-chemicals under rainfed conditions of south-western Haryana, India. The crop was infested with Nutsedge (Cyperus rotundus), Carpet weed (Trianthema portulacustrum), Phyllanthus niruri, Barn yard grass (Echinochloa colona), Digera arvensis) and Crow root grass (Dactyloctenium aegyptium) etc. Two mechanized interculture with tractor drawn cultivator 15 and 25 DAS under crop geometry of 60cm ×10cm with seed priming with thiourea 500 ppm solution for 30 minutes before sowing and foliar spray of 0.5% NPK at tillering was found more remunerative with grain yield of 2.77 and 1.93t/ha, and 32 and 74; and 43 and 171 % higher net returns, and B:C ratio of 1.79 and 1.49 compared to the recommended manual interculture operation with wheel hand hoe or kasola at 20-25 and 30-35 DAS under 45cm x 12cm crop geometry during 2017 and 2018, respectively. Mechanized interculture with tractor drawn cultivator twice at 15 and 25 DAS under crop geometry of 60cm ×10cm without seed priming with thiourea and foliar spray of NPK was the second best treatment in terms of B:C during both years viz. 1.68 and 1.45 during 2017 and 2018, respectively.These two treatments also provided efficient control of weed (76 - 88%), however, the WCE (89 - 93%) was bit higher under recommended two interculture operations with Kasola or wheel hand hoe.Weeds allowed to grow throughout the crop season caused yield loss in pearl millet to the extent of 33.7 and 35.1% during 2017 and 2018, respectively.

Antimicrobial Treatment on Cellulosic Fibre using Agro Waste (Lemon Peel)

Paper ID- AMA-30-09-2021-10747

Concern in environment-friendly textile processing techniques has been augmenting in recent years. Natural products are environment friendly, low toxic and less allergenic owing to the presence of large number of structurally diverse active compounds which makes natural agents as promising options for the development of antimicrobial protective textiles. The purpose of the present study was to investigate the effect of lemon peel treatment on microbial resistant property of cotton fabric. It was found that the cotton fabric treated with lemon peel extract showed 97.89, 98 and 97.16 percent reduction in the growth of P. aeruginosa, E. coli and X. campestris bacteria, 93.49 and 95.83 percent reduction in the growth of B. subtilis and S. aureus bacteria whereas treated fabric showed 94.99, 90.41 and 93.44 percent reduction against A. clavatus, A. flavus and A. awamori fungal strains, respectively. Lemon peel extract treated cotton fabric was further characterized by FESEM and FTIR spectra to study the changes occurred in the fibre structure after treatment.
