Effects of Various Transplanting Dates and Genotypes on Growth and Yield of Basmati Rice (Oryza sativa L.) in Trans-Gangetic Plains of India

Paper ID- AMA-07-08-2021-10567

It is expected that environmental changes influence the growth and development of crop, and with this hypothesis, a field experiment was laid to investigate the impact of different dates of transplanting on various genotypes of basmati rice. Three genotypes of basmati rice i.e. CSR 30, Pusa Basmati (PB) 1121 and Haryana Basmati (HB) 2 were sown with three transplanting dates (June 25, July 10 and July 25) in the kharif season of 2015 and 2016 using. The experiment was designed in a split-plot layout with four replications, where dates of transplanting were allocated to the main plots and the genotypes to the subplots. The ANOVA table showed that the main effects of the dates of transplanting and the genotype are significant for nearly all the assessed characters. Significant interaction between the date of transplantation and the genotype were observed for number of effective tillers (NET), harvest index (HI) and straw yield (SY). The grain yield (GY) on first date of transplanting (25th June) showed significant incrememt by ~2.5 and ~17% relative to the second (10th July) and third date of transplanting (25th July), respectively. The findings of this study revealed that early transplanting enhanced positive effects on assessed characters of basmati rice. Further, correlation study has exhibited the positive and significant correlation (p≤0.05) of GY with NET, number of grains per panicle (NGPP), panicle length (PL), 1000-grain weight (GW) and HI.

Growth and Instability analysis in Wheat in India

Paper ID- AMA-07-08-2021-10566

The present investigation deals with the use of Coefficient of Variation (CV), Cuddy-Della Valle index (CDVI), Coppock’s instability index (CII), to determine the instability in the wheat production in major producing states in India. Time series data for the period (1960–1961 to 2018–2019) on area, production, yield and MSP of wheat have been used in this study. Time series data was divided into six decades of 10-year interval to measure the instability in area, production and yield of selected crops into different periods. Annual growth rate of area, production and productivity of wheat crop in India and major wheat growing states were also observed by fitting to the time-series data in linear function.

Date Fruit Varieties Classification Based on Dryness Levels by Using YOLOv3

Paper ID- AMA-07-08-2021-10565

Fruits native to the Middle East, such as dates, are small fruits that can be diverse and popular in the Middle East. There are several common date varieties, each with different characteristics. Date classification is a critical tool in date processing which may be an expensive operation. In this research, we present a computer vision and color perception strategy for the automatic classification of date fruits. The approach was introduced and tested empirically based on image data representing of three distinct date classes at various dryness stages. You only look once (YOLO) is a state-of- the-art, real-time entity detection device that has been used for this reason. The best precision varied from the 0.29 range to the 1.00 range.

Combining ability and component analysis in Bread Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)

Paper ID- AMA-07-08-2021-10563

In the present study a diallel set of 9 x 9 was attempted by crossing nine bread wheat genotypes in all possible combinations excluding reciprocals. The mean squares of nine diverse parents and 36F1s due to GCA and SCA component were significant for all the thirteen traits. These outcomes show the importance of additive variance in the inheritance of all the traits. The comparative importance of additive and non-additive components was revealed by checking the components of variance (s²g and s²s), heritability in broad-sense (Hb), narrow-sense (Hn) and gca/sca ratio. The magnitude of GCA component (s²g) and gca/sca ratio was higher for plant height and peduncle length, indicating that these two traits were under the control of additive genetic variance and all the others traits were controlled by non-additive genetic component. Based on general combining ability effects and per se performance, parents WH1184, HD3086 and HD3059 were found the good general combiners for grain yield per plant. On the basis of per se performance and SCA effects the crosses viz., HD2967 × WH1184 and HD3059 × Raj3765 were found as good specific cross combination. These crosses can be extensively used in further breeding programmes to develop superior pure lines.

Financial analysis of dairy companies in India A comparative study of selected companies

Paper ID- AMA-07-08-2021-10562

The study has made an attempt to analyses the solvency and profitability position of select Dairy companies in India. The select companies are CDPL, Hatsun, Heritage, Parag and Prabhat. The solvency has been explained by debt-to-equity ratio, interest coverage ratio, and proprietary ratio; profitability has been explained by ratios such as return on total assets, return on equity. It can be concluded that there is a significant difference in terms of current ratio, debt to equity ratio, proprietary ratio, debtors turnover ratio, creditors turnover ratio and total assets turnover ratio of select dairy firms in India. It means that at least one of the means of the sample is different. The test results also indicated that there is no significant difference in terms of inventory turnover ratio, fixed assets turnover ratio and interest coverage ratio.
