Effect of post emergence herbicidal combinations tank mixed with zinc or/and iron sulphate on yield attributes and grain yield of wheat crop (Triticum aestivum L.)

Paper ID- AMA-07-08-2021-10556

Wheat (Triticum aestivum) is an important cereal crop of the world. Major biotic stress on wheat yield is the weeds. Wheat growing areas are now suffering from deficiency of micronutrients. Field experiment was conducted at RRS, Bawal during Rabi season of 2018-19 to evaluate the post-emergence herbicidal combinations with Zn or/and Fe in wheat. Experiment consisted of 18 treatments replicated thrice, was laid out in Randomized Block Design. Four herbicidal combinations viz. clodinafop + metsulfuron @ 60 g/ha, sulfosulfuron + metsulfuron @ 32 g/ha, mesosulfuron + iodosulfuron @ 14.4 g/ha, pinoxaden + carfentrazone @ (50 + 20g/ha) were evaluated with Zn, Fe and with both Zn as well as Fe. Yield components as well as grain yield of wheat increased significantly under the influence of herbicidal treatments over weedy check. Addition of iron and zinc to the herbicidal combinations resulted into increase in yield components and grain yield of wheat. Application of combined (Zn + Fe) with herbicidal combinations enhanced the grain yield of wheat significantly over application of sole herbicidal combinations. Highest grain yield was obtained under the influence of mesosulfuron + iodosulfuron @ 14.4 g/ha + ZnSO4 (0.5 %) + urea (2.5 %) + FeSO4 (0.5 %).

Electrostatic Pollen Collector for Tomato Under Greenhouse Condition

Paper ID- AMA-07-08-2021-10555

The problems in fruit setting with artificial pollination (contact type) can be eradicated by the application of electrostatic forces (non – contact type), hence the study was undertaken to develop an electrostatic pollinator and tested for tomato under polyhouse condition. Morphological characteristics of these flowers were studied for design of pollinator. A high voltage amplification unit with flyback transformer and MOSFET, a spherical shaped electrode and a DC input source were the major components of the developed electrostatic pollinator. The pollen collection capacity of two electrodes E1 (10 mm) and E2 (7.5 mm) were evaluated at voltage potentials of 3 kV, 4 kV, 5 kV and 6 kV at 5 mm, 10 mm and 15 mm distance from the anther tip of flower. The maximum number of pollens (409) was collected by electrode E1 with a charging potential of 6 kV at 5 mm distance. This high pollen collection rate was due to high detaching forces acting on the pollen grains at shorter distance between the anther tip and electrode. The pollen collection capacity was minimum (87) for electrode E2 with an electrode potential of 3 kV at 15 mm distance.

Growth and yield performance of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) varieties under different sowing times

Paper ID- AMA-07-08-2021-10554

The present investigation was carried out during the Rabi season of 2016-17 at the research farm of Wheat & Barley Section, Chaudhary Charan Singh Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar. The experiment was laid out in a split plot design with four sowing times (5th November, 15th November, 25th November, 5th December) in main plots and four wheat varieties (WH 1105, HD 2967, HD 3086, DBW 88) in subplots with three replications. A delay in sowing time from 5th November to 5th December significantly reduced the growth parameters in terms of plant height, dry matter accumulation and number of tillers. Among wheat varieties, the maximum number of tillers and dry matter accumulation were registered in HD 3086 whereas, the maximum plant height was in HD 2967. Sowing of wheat on 5th November resulted in significantly higher yield attributes viz. effective tillers, grains per earhead and 1000 grain weight resulting in 27.4 and 9.7 per cent higher grain yield and harvest index, respectively as compared to 5th December sowing. Among wheat varieties, the highest numbers of effective tillers and 1000 grain weight were recorded with HD 3086 whereas, the maximum number of grains per earhead was recorded in WH 1105. Maximum grain yield (5822 kg/ha) and biological yield (14023 kg/ha) were obtained from HD 3086.

Sustainability of sugarcane cultivation and production in India – A review

Paper ID- AMA-07-08-2021-10553

India is a most important sugarcane producer in the world and its yield potential is continuously increasing from last two decades to meet global energy requirements. Sugarcane is mainly grown for production of sugar obtained from sugarcane juice. Molasses, Bagasse and ethanol are secondary products that are obtained in sugarcane cultivation. Sugarcane is most imperative cash crop of India therefore it is assumed more profitable to farmers. The most important contemplations during sugarcane planting are selection of appropriate sett planting techniques, nutrient management through judicious use of organic and inorganic sources of nutrients including bio fertilizers and effective weed management. This paper is a comprehensive review of advanced package and practices of sugarcane cultivation practiced in India. On the basis of literature available for sugarcane cultivation, the adoption of best management practices is among researchable priorities that can be developed to consolidate the large potential of sugarcane production towards greater sustainability.

Training needs of farmers in technology diversification for soil health management practices

Paper ID- AMA-07-08-2021-10552

The present study has been carried out in two agro-climatic zones of Haryana state of India; viz. north-eastern zone and south-western zone. The outcome visualized in this paper after conducting a field survey, a total of 240 farmers, who were interviewed with a well-structured interview schedule. The findings revealed that farmers have high need of training in ‘Crop residue management (paddy-straw reaper/chopper)’, ‘Pest and disease control/IPM’,’ Fertilizer management/INM’ and ‘Soil and water testing’ for keeping the soil health and sound. The least Training required management practices by farmers are ‘Bunding for controlling erosion’, ‘Intercultural operation’ and ‘Pasture management practices’. The study also found that about 75% farmers have need of training regarding different soil health management practices.
