A field experiment was conducted during 2016-17 and 2017-18 at Hill Agricultural Research and Extension Centre, Bajaura (Himachal Pradesh), India to study the response of wheat (Tritucum aestivum L.) to different herbicidal treatments. The experiment was conducted in a randomized block design with eleven treatments and in three replications. The experimental results revealed that application of pre-mix herbicide Metsulfuron + Carfentrazone + Surfactant at 32 days after sowing recorded the maximum degree of reduction in the density as well as dry matter of broad-leaved weeds at 30 DAS compared to the remaining treatments. A significantly higher yield attributes of wheat were recorded in Metsulfuron + Carfentrazone + Surfactant treatment while significantly yield attributes of wheat was recorded in weedy check treatment. Higher yield (straw and grain) and weed control efficiency of wheat was recorded in Metsulfuron + Carfentrazone + Surfactant treatment while lower grain yield, straw yield and weed control efficiency was recorded in weedy check. Hence, highest gross returns (142.6 × 103 INR ha-1), net returns (100.1 × 103 INR ha-1) and B: C ratio (2.35) were obtained from Metsulfuron + Carfentrazone + Surfactant treatment 4 + 20 g a.i. ha 1 treatment.

Radial and Axial variation in specific gravity of Pterygota alata at different girth classes

Paper ID- AMA-26-02-2023-12063

The study was conducted at Forest College and Research Institute, Mettupalayam, during 2019 to 2022, to determine the specific gravity of Pterygota alata at different girth classes. The samples were collected from seed origin of Pterygota alata which were farm grown in Pollachi, India with a specification of four different girth classes (30-45, 45-90, 120-150,150-180cm) and three radial and axial positions. From each sample tree, three stem discs with a 2 cm thickness were cut in both the axial (25, 50 and 75 % height of the tree) and radial (pith, middle and periphery) position then the samples were converted to the 2×2×2 cm3 cubes. The highest specific gravity at radial position was observed in 150-180 cm girth class with a value of 0.67, 0.58 and 0.44 g/cm3 in green, air dry and oven dried wood samples and the lowest specific gravity was recorded in 30-45 cm as 0.629, 0.629 and 0.432 g/cm3 respectively. Whereas in axial position the highest specific gravity was observed in 150-180 cm girth class with a value of 0.69, 0.59 and 0.44 in green, air dry and oven dried wood samples and the lowest specific gravity was recorded in 30-45 cm as 0.62, 0.50 and 0.44 respectively. The study suggested that the Pterygota alata specific gravity is more of less similar to the low-density hardwood species and it will be the alternate prominent species for ply wood, packing cases, match splints and pencil industries.

Management of white grub (Holotrichia serrata) in sugarcane in North East Zone of Tamil Nadu

Paper ID- AMA-25-02-2023-12059

Farmer participatory field experiments were carried out at Enthal village in M/s Dharani sugars Ltd, Polur command area and at Andiyappanur village in M/s. Tiruppattur co-operative sugar mill Ltd, kethandapatti command area of North East Zone of Tamil Nadu during 2015-2018 to develop management technique with insecticides against white grub (Holotrichia serrata, Scarabaeidae, Coleoptera). The sugarcane varieties, CoC 24 and Co 86032 were ratooned during last week of January of respective years affected with white grub has been selected. Six insecticides (listed in table) applied as soil drenching/soil application in root zone affected clumps along with untreated check replicated thrice in randomized block design. The treatments were imposed in the third week of June of respective years. The observations on the number of white grubs per meter row in the root zone were recorded a day before and 15, 30, 45, 60th days after treatment applied and percent reduction was worked out. The yield parameters were recorded at the time of harvest. The highest (100%) grub population reduction was recorded in imidacloprid and Chlorantraniliprole on 15th day after application. It was concluded that soil drenching of imidacloprid 17.8 SL @ 250 ml/ha in root zone of affected cane were very effective in reducing white grub population within 15 days of application and recorded highest cane yield of 87.39 t/ha with CCS of 12.88% which accounted for 38.77 % higher yield with higher cost benefit ratio of Rs. 2.76 than untreated control.

Effect of post harvest factors on storage of cauliflower

Paper ID- AMA-25-02-2023-12054

Studies were conducted to determine whether the biochemical and microbiological quality of the cauliflower had altered while it was stored at temperatures between 2 and 12 degrees Celsius for three weeks. In contrast to untreated packaging, proper packaging of cauliflower preserved the pure quality of the phenolic content, which was drastically reduced during the irrespective treatment and packaging of the cauliflower. Ferulic acid, Chlorogenic acid, Gallic acid, and Catechin contents were among the phenolic compounds present in cauliflower. Frequently, mesophilic aerobes are more prevalent in broccoli. Carbon dioxide-built up microflora that was reduced during storage conditions. In LDPE bags that has an anti-microbial effect to decrease the microflora on the packaging material.

Finger Millet cultivation in association with Eucalyptus field bund plantation

Paper ID- AMA-25-02-2023-12052

Eucalyptus acceptance in agroforestry is also based on its high timber value; the wood of eucalyptus is utilized in pulp, paper, Plywood and in packaging industry and any kind of construction work. Investigations of the interactions between trees and crops in traditional agroforestry studies in village muliaput, Durkaguda and Luhaba, District Koraput, Odisha, showed that the growth parameters of Eucalyptus decreased under the shade of Eucalyptus. Plant height found minimum at under the shade of Eucalyptus i.e., (56.63 cm, 102 cm, 111.91 cm) in 30 DAT, 60 DAT, 90 DAT and the control was maximum (65.7 cm, 105.36 cm and 118.47 cm) in 30 DAT, 60 DAT, 90 DAT. Number of effective tillers per meter of row length at harvest was found maximum (27.03) at control and minimum (23.56) at under the shade of Eucalyptus. Number of fingers per ear head at harvest was significantly highest in control (7.46) i.e. control condition and lowest in under shade of Eucalyptus (6.28). Length of finger at harvest was found maximum (7.12 cm) at control and minimum (5.72 cm) at under the shade of Eucalyptus. The grain yield (2438 kg ha-1 & straw yield (7011 kg ha-1) significantly highest at control and lowest grain yield (2313 kg ha-1) & straw yield (6365 kg ha-1) under the shade of Eucalyptus because the plant species under the agroforestry system depends on the same supply of growth and development resources, such as light, water, nutrients and thus the performance of the other components as well as the system as a whole will impact one component of the system. It is reasonable to believe that the decline may be related to the reduced availability of light together along with competition. But On the other way Eucalyptus tree gives extra income to the farmers after harvesting the tree crop.
