Design, fabrication, and preliminary evaluation of a Ditcher for rehabilitation of minor canals (Minors) in the Gezira scheme.

Paper ID- AMA-08-05-2022-11348

Efforts to find a possible solution of sedimentation in irrigation canals in the Gezira scheme in Sudan was thoroughly reviewed. As a contribution in these efforts, a desedimentation ditcher was conceptually designed. The newly designed ditcher was to be attached to a motor grader to de-sediment and rehabilitate the irrigation canals (minor canals) in the scheme. The tested model gave encouraging results and may further developed into a full-scale ditcher that can readily be mounted on a motor grader to perform desedimentation. The modeled machine has the potential to improve efficiency, energy consumption leading to enhancement of time management regarding the rehabilitation of the canalization system at much lower cost. The modeled Ditcher is expected to respond to the challenges paused by the current methods such as damage and change of section profile of the Minors and negatively influencing the production.

Assessment of post-harvest quality of guava cv. Pant Prabhat under different canopy heights and planting densities

Paper ID- AMA-06-05-2022-11340

The experiment was conducted to study the influence of canopy height, planting density, and their interactions on the post-harvest quality of guava. The experiment consisted of 4 different canopy heights [1.25m (H1), 1.5m (H2), 1.75m (H3), and unpruned (H4)] and 3 planting densities [5555 (D1), 3333 (D2), and (D3) 4444 plants ha-1] with total 12 treatment combinations laid out in factorial RBD was conducted to evaluate the post-harvest quality of rainy and winter season guava fruits at different period intervals (2, 4 and 6 days after harvesting or DAH) under ambient storage conditions. Winter season crop superseded rainy season crop in maintaining the fruit quality at 6DAH with reduced loss in physiological weight, volume, TSS, titratable acidity and ascorbic acid contents. Spoilage percentage was more than 60% in both seasons with a little higher in the rainy season on the 6th DAH. During the winter season, canopy at 1.25m height (H1) and in the rainy crop, at 1.75 m (H3) with 3333 planting densities (D2) showed supremacy in maintaining the fruit quality during 6 days storage under ambient conditions.

Effect of Modification of Marinated Seasoning on the Formation of Malondialdehyde Compounds and Psychochemical Quality in Buffalo Meat Empal

Paper ID- AMA-06-05-2022-11339

Empal is one of traditional food in Indonesia. Empal is processed from meat that is cut slightly flat after being boiled and seasoned. The method of processing meat for empal in society generally uses high and varied heating. The use of excessive heat can lead to a decrease in the quality of processed meat and the formation of various free radicals that can harm public health, this condition can be seen from the presence of malondialdehyde compounds (MDA) and other psychochemical parameters. This study aims to evaluate the role of marinade by using local seasoning in buffalo meat in inhibiting the formation of toxic compounds and changes in the nutritional value of buffalo meat empal during processing. This research was conducted using a randomized block design with 2 treatments of marinated spice formula; formula I and formula II and 3 replications. Marinated samples showed an increase in water content, hardness, cooking yield and antioxidant activity. On the other hand, it reduces the pH, MDA and fat content. The conclusion of this study showed that the spice formula I was more efficient in reducing MDA levels and increasing the antioxidant activity of buffalo meat empal samples.

Impact on uptake in Fe content of RKN infected chickpea varieties induced with bio agent Pseudomonas fluorescens.

Paper ID- AMA-05-05-2022-11338

Cicer arientinum L. commonly known as chickpea is one of India's most important pulse crops, accounting for 38% of the range and 50% of pulse production when compared to the overall beat generation. Chickpeas include 2.1 percent protein, 61.5 percent carbs, 4.5 percent fat, and higher levels of press, calcium, and niacin. The most significant burden of chickpea generation owing to parasitic nematodes (Meloidogyne incognita) is around 14 percent of total global generation in annual abdicate hardship. Pseudomonas fluorescens might be a bacterial bio-agent that aids worm camouflage in chickpea plants. This test was carried out to see in case there were any contrasts in press substance between chickpea immunized with M. incognita and a combination of Pseudomonas fluorescens as a bioagent, where distinctive treatments of nematode, microscopic organisms, and chemicals are utilized to support disease resistance in chickpea cultivars RSG 974, GG 5, and GNG 2144. The full press substance of chickpea assortment GNG 2144 was found to be most prominent within the treatment where as it were microscopic organisms (P. fluorescens) were tainted, i.e., 13.56 mg/100g of a root, taken after by GG 5, i.e., 12.47 mg/100g of root, and RSG 974, i.e., 10.69 mg/100g of root. The utilize of Pseudomonas fluorescence, either in combination or alone, consistently raised the Fe substance within the roots of chickpea plants, i.e., RSG 974 (40.47 %), GG 5(49.16 %), GNG 2144 (58.17 %) compared to the health check.

Milk Production Management of Ruminant Animals in Bhilwara District of Rajasthan

Paper ID- AMA-04-05-2022-11337

The present study was undertaken to find out the cost and returns of milk production in Bhilwara district of Rajasthan with a sample of 60 households. Milk production in India is mainly concentrated on small farms in rural area as a subsidiary occupation to agriculture. Dairy plays an important role to improve the economy of small milk producer’s households in different regions of India. India is leading country in milk in world with production of 176.35 million tonnes in 2017-18 and Rajasthan is the second largest milk producing state with 834 gm/day in the country. The results of study revealed overall average net cost per day was ₹ 154.09 for crossbreed cow, ₹ 106.20 for local cow and ₹ 136.36 for buffalo, respectively. The cost of milk production per litre for crossbreed cow, local cow and buffalo were found as ₹ 22.05, ₹ 33.29 and ₹ 29.26 respectively. The gross return was recorded as ₹ 202.48 for crossbreed cow, ₹ 114.84 for local cow and ₹ 194.05 for buffalo, respectively.
