The present investigation was conducted at Vegetable Research Farm, Department of Vegetable Science, Punjab Agricultural University, Ludhiana during 2017-18 and 2018-19. It has been observed that yield contributing factors i.e. fruit length, fruit diameter, number of fruits per plant and fruit yield was decreased as the salinity level increased. On the basis of evaluation, brinjal genotypes SL-8-PB-1-3-1-4 followed by KBSR-343-1 and BL-215 performed better upto 4 ds/m levels of salinity with a slight decline in yield traits, but at 6 ds/m yield was drastically reduced, which was 12%, 28% and 28.5% respectively as compared to control. Number of days to first flowering and 50% percent flowering was increased as the salinity level increased because salt effects the procedure of flower blooming. It is concluded from the investigation, SL-8-PB-1-3-1-4 (Small Long), KBSR-343-1 (Round) and BL-215 (Long) emerged as ideal genotypes for salt tolerance under field and pot conditions.

Bio-active essential oil components in small cardamom as influenced by weather elements

Paper ID- AMA-10-04-2024-12981

The present investigation was performed to evaluate the variability in the yield and bio-active components of Indian cardamom seed extract from two different ecological zones of the Western Ghats (Pampadumpara and Madikeri regions), India. Results showed significant differences in the yield and bio-active components in two varieties viz. Appangala-1 and PV-2. The variety PV-2 (639 g/plant) recorded significantly higher yield in Pampadumpara than Madikeri (399 g/plant). Significant variability was observed in the bio-active components of the essential oil. The intrinsic quality of cardamom is mainly attributed to two important components α-terpinyl acetate and 1,8- cineole. The highest range of α-terpinyl acetate in both the varieties (41.1-42.4%) under Madikeri region was recorded followed by Pampadumpara region (35.01-40.2%), while the 1,8-cineole content showed highest in Pampadumpara (25.68-37.57%) followed by Madikeri (23.06-32.66%) region. The highest content of linalool, α-terpineol, linalyl acetate and cis-geraniol was recorded in PV-2. The highest content of β-neralidol was recorded in Appangala-1. The variation among the region was significant for terpinen-4-ol, β-myrcene and β-neralidol. Pampadumpara region received 47% and 18% more rainfall during North east monsoon (October to November) and summer shower (December to May), respectively though received less rainfall during South west monsoon (71%) and also showed 10% more rainfall distribution compared to Madikeri region. The annual mean maximum temperature (Tmax) was 18% more in Madikeri compared to Pampadumpara region. With all the environment factors taken into account, Pampadumpara region is relatively better in terms of cardamom capsule yield and Madikeri region for bio active components which attributes intrinsic quality of capsules.

Study of Effect on pregnant rats pretreated with methanolic extract of Ruta montana

Paper ID- AMA-08-04-2024-12978

This study evaluated the subacute toxicity of methanolic extract Ruta montana on the main organs of pregnant rats pre-treated with 38.7149 mg/kg, IP (≈1/30DL50) for 45 days. No adverse clinical signs were observed in pre-treated pregnant rats, during the pre-treatment or the gestation period. A normal change in the body weight of the pretreated and control pregnant rats was recorded but not with a significant difference. Macroscopically, no abnormalities were seen in the internal organs or embryos in all rats, and no significant differences were found in all rats. Pretreatment with Ruta montana did not result in fetal death, undevelopment and reduced the number, and weight of fetuses. A slight increase of 8.059% was recorded in the number of embryos, in the female rats pretreated. For the average embryo weight, a slight increase of 3.7946 % was observed in the pretreated rats. There is no post implantation in all rats. The biochemical parameters for the assessment of renal function and liver did not show a significant difference in pregnant pretreated. No significant differences were recorded in the values of FSH and LH in pregnant pretreated. The values of the different hematological parameters did not record any significant difference between the pregnant rats pre-treated. Observation of histological sections of livers, kidneys and ovaries pregnant pretreated rats showed the absence of histological abnormalities with the preservation of each organ of its parenchyma except that the hepatic parenchyma has some blood congestion in pregnant pretreated rats compared to control rats pregnant.

India is the only country that produces all five commonly traded varieties of natural silk: Mulberry, Eri, Muga, Temperate tasar, and Tropical tasar. Eri silk is the type of silk produced by Samia ricini. Eri silk is often referred to as Non-Violence silk or Peace silk. It is also known as "Poor Man’s silk." We studied how several seasons impact the rearing performance of Eri silkworms by analyzing multiple larval parameters (larval duration, pupal duration, fecundity, hatching, ERR%, emergence rate and survival rate) and cocoon parameters (cocoon weight, shell weight, and shell %). The current research has been conducted using the tray rearing method, which involves placing castor leaves over the worms on wooden trays. This study examines the economic significance of cocoon and post-cocoon characteristics of eri silkworms raised in various seasons. The research showed that economic traits of eri silkworm were most pronounced in autumn and spring season under Odisha climatic conditions.

Quality analysis of Assam Lemon (Citrus limon L.) through HPLC after application of plant growth regulators

Paper ID- AMA-29-03-2024-12968

Assam Lemon (Citrus limon L.) is considered as one of the most important citrus fruits grown in the north-eastern part of India. In spite of its heavy market demand, recent reports indicated an increasing trend of consumer dissatisfaction associated with inconsistent fruit quality. The present work aimed to improve the fruit quality of Assam Lemon by hormonal regulation. Different concentrations of GA3 (20, 40 and 60ppm) and NAA (10, 20 and 30ppm) were applied at three different growth stages of the plant. Various quality attributes of harvested fruits were analyzed. Chromatographic (HPLC) technique was employed for separation and quantification of oxalic, citric, tartaric, D-malic and ascorbic acids. Fruit juice content and TSS-Acidity ratio were positively influenced by GA3 60ppm. Organic acid content of fruit juice was found to be altered by GA3 and NAA. However, significant differential quality attributes were recorded between GA3 and NAA treated fruits. It can be inferred that the fruit quality of Assam Lemon can be appreciably improved by foliar application of GA3 and NAA.
