The present investigation was conducted at Horticulture experiment Station, Baramunda, OUAT, Bhubaneswar during the year 2017-19 with an objective to improve the qualitative characters and improve the sugar content of mango Cv. Dashehari by using Brassinostroids and Triacontanol. The experiment was laid in Randomized Block Design (RBD) with three replication and 12 treatments comprising spraying of Brassinostroids @ 0.5 and 1.0 ppm, Triacontanol @ each 300, 500 and 700ppm, its combination and control. The observations on different characters of fruit Viz. Fruit weight (g), Firmness (Kg/cm2), Physiological loss in weight (%), Carotenoid content (mg per 100 g), Ascorbic Acid (mg/100g pulp), Dry matter content (mg per 100 g), TSS (°Brix), Acidity content (%), TSS: Acid ratio, Total Sugar (%), Reducing sugar (%), Non-reducing sugar (%) were recorded. Among the treatments, T10(1 ppm BRs + 300 ppm triacontanol) recorded maximum Fruit weight (182.99 g), Carotenoid content (11.46mg per 100 g), Dry matter content (21.91mg per 100 g), Ascorbic Acid (35.3mg/100g pulp), TSS (17.71ºbrix), TSS: Acid ratio (75.88), Total sugars (16.91%), Reducing sugar (5.07%) and Lowest titrable acidity (0.234%) but minimum non-reducing sugar (11.12%) found in the treatment 0.5 ppm brassinosteroid. High firmness (3.67Kg/cm2) observed in T8 (0.5 ppm brassinosteroid + 500ppm triacontanol) and lowest physiological loss in weight (21.41%) in T9 (0.5 ppm brassinosteroid + 700ppm triacontanol).
The purpose of this study was to examine the horticultural performance, including leaf nutrition, of Kinnow mandarin budded on ten rootstocks in the Punjab state of India. Kinnow mandarin plants budded on Volkamer lemon demonstrated the most vigorous development (3.13 m tree height and 14.54 m3 tree volume), although TCSA was greatest (7.30 m2) on Rough lemon and NRCC-6, with no noticeable difference between NRCC-2, NRCC-3, Volkamer lemon, NRCC-4, and Carrizo. The maximum quantity of fruits per tree (494.0) was obtained from NRCC-6, which was statistically equivalent to Carrizo (490.5), however, the fruit with the thickest rind was gathered from NRCC-2 (3.88 mm) followed by NRCC-6 (3.71 mm). Carrizo had the highest juice content (57.72 percent), followed by NRCC-1 (54.58 percent); nevertheless, Rough lemon had the most pulp percentage (17.71 percent) and NRCC-6 had the lowest pulp content (13.09 five percent). Kinnow mandarin induced the highest TSS (11.3°Brix) using NRCC-1 rootstock, followed by CRH-12 (11.07°Brix). The combination of Kinnow- Volkamer and Kinnow- NRCC-3 had the lowest acid content (0.64 percent), followed by the combination of Kinnow- NRCC-6 (0.68 percent). Leaf nutrient status revealed that Rough lemon had the highest nitrogen accumulation (2.74 percent), followed by Volkamer lemon (0.94 percent), NRCC-2 (1.08 percent) potassium, Carrizo (472.67 ppm) iron, NRCC-4 (64.01 ppm) zinc, and CRH-12 (manganese) (12.72 ppm). This research will aid future tests and the search for a replacement for Rough lemon.
A field experiment was conducted during rabi, 2021-22 at Agricultural College Farm, Bapatla to assess the response of macro and micronutrients on growth and yield of groundnut in coastal sandy soil. The experiment was laid out in RBD with seven treatments replicated thrice. The treatments are T1- Control, T2- 100% RDF, T3- 125% RDF, T4- 100% RDF + Soil application of ZnSO4 @ 50 kg ha-1 and Borax @ 10 kg ha-1, T5- 125% RDF + Soil application of ZnSO4 @ 50 kg ha-1 and Borax @ 10 kg ha-1, T6- 100% RDF + Foliar application of ZnSO4 @ 2 g L-1, FeSO4 @ 5 g L-1 and Borax @ 1.5 g L-1 at 45 and 65 DAS, T7- 125% RDF + Foliar application of ZnSO4 @ 2 g L-1, FeSO4 @ 5 g L-1 and Borax @ 1.5 g L-1 at 45 and 65 DAS. The results indicated that there was a significant influence on dry matter production, number of pods per plant and yield and quality parameters such as oil yield and protein content by the application of macro and micronutrients. The maximum dry matter accumulation, number of pods per plant, haulm, pod and kernel yield were obtained by the treatment T7 which received 125% RDF + Foliar application of ZnSO4 @ 2 g L-1, FeSO4 @ 5 g L-1 and Borax @ 1.5 g L-1 at 45 and 65 DAS. However, the growth parameters such as plant height, number of primary branches, number of compound leaves and yield attributes such as shelling percentage and 100- kernel weight and oil content were not significantly influenced by the macro and micronutrients application.
The present investigation was conducted at Agronomy Research Farm at ANDUA&T, Kumarganj, Ayodhya (U.P.) during Zaid season of 2021 to asses the planting geometry with phosphorus levels on growth and yield of summer moong. The twelve treatments were tested in Factorial Randomized Block Design with three replications keeping three planting geometries viz.,30 cm x 10 cm, 30 cm x 15 cm, 30 cm x 20 cm and four phosphorus levels viz., 0, 20, 40 and 60 kg/ha. The soil of field was silty loam and the pH of soil was 8.3. The summer moong variety of NDM-1 was sown on 16-04-2021 with seed rate of 20 kg/ha. and the crop was harvested on 25-07-2021. Results revealed that the growth attributes viz., plant population, plant height, dry matter accumulation, branches per plant and leaf area index were significantly higher at 30 cm x 15 cm planting geometry over rest geometry, respectively in summer moong. The yield attributes as number of pods per plant, length of pods, number of grains per pod and number of grains per plant were significantly superior in summer moong crop at 30 cm x 15 cm planting geometry compared to 30 cm x 10 cm and 30 cm x 20 cm planting geometry, respectively. The planting geometry of 30 cm x 15 cm were proved significantly superior in terms of seed, straw and biological yield and harvest index when compared to the rest of treatments, respectively. The increment percentage in seed yield of 10.15% and 6.34% compared to 30 cm x 10 cm and 30 cm x 20 cm planting geometry, respectively. The plant height, dry matter accumulation, branches per plant and leaf area index were found significantly superior upto 40 kg/ha, phosphorus over rest planting geometries, respectively except number of branches per plant upto 60 kg P2O5 /ha. The number of pods/plant, length of pods, grains/pod and grains per plant were significantly increased upto 40 kg P2O5 /ha over rest used phosphorus doses, respectively. The highest seed yield, straw yield biological yield and harvest index were recorded significant upto 40 kg/ha phosphorus over 0, 20 and 60 kg/ha P2O5, respectively and increased phosphorus levels at 60 kg/ha at par in respect harvest index only. The increment evaluated in grain yield of summer moong (37.16% and 20.72%) over control and 20 kg/ha phosphorus, respectively. Therefore, the planting geometry of 30 cm x 15 cm with used 40 kg/ha phosphorus were better performance in terms of growth and yield attributes and yields of summer moong in present field experimentation.
Rice blast (Pyricularia oryzae) is the most destructive disease of rice in Jammu & Kashmir. The variability status of P. oryzae was not studied in Jammu region, although many studies had been done in the Kashmir region, therefore the present study is first study which aimed at determining the cultural variability in the rice blast isolates of the Jammu region. In this research, leaf blast samples were collected from the rice growing areas of five districts of Jammu division and variability among 30 isolates of Pyricularia oryzae was studied with respect to cultural traits. The colony colour of thirty isolates collected during the survey were off white to greyish black, with circular or irregular margins and flattened to raised growth pattern. On the basis of colony growth pattern, margin and colour, the isolates were categories into 6 groups (A, B, C, D, E and F). All thirty isolates exhibited excellent variability in respect of colony growth pattern, margins and colony colour.
