AMA, Agricultural Mechanization in Asia, Africa and Latin America (ISSN: 00845841) is a peer-reviewed journal. The journal covers Agricultural and Biological Sciences and all sort of engineering topic. the journal's scopes are in the following fields but not limited to:
Soil salinity is the major factor responsible for poor germination, growth and development leading to reduction in crop yield. The present study was conducted with aim to evaluate 10 genotypes of taramira at 4 levels of salinity concentrations. Observations on12 parameters were recorded including germination percentage and other seedling traits. The two genotypes RTM-1351 and RTM-1355 exhibited significant variation among all the traits and the levels of salinity concentrations. High heritability coupled with high genetic advance was observed for root fresh weight, such trait can be exploited for selection criteria for developing salinity tolerance varieties.
The experiment was conducted on farm of Rajasthan Agricultural Research Institute (RARI), Durgapura, Jaipur (Raj.) to study the Effect of different liquid biofertilizers and fertility levels on growth, yield and quality of cluster bean (cymopsis tetragonoloba). The test crops were raised on field during kharif-2018 and 2019. The experiment was laid out in factorial randomized block design (FRBD). The treatment details of experiment comprised with two factors eight treatment of liquid biofertilizer: control (L0), Rhizobium (L 1), PSB (L2), KMB (L 3), SSB (L 4), Rhizobium + PSB (L 5), Rhizobium + PSB+ KMB (L 6) and Rhizobium + PSB+ KMB + SSB (L 7) and (2) three treatment of fertility levels: 100 % recommended dose of fertilizers (F1),75% RDF (F2) and 50 % RDF (F3) and total number of treatment were 24. The maximum increase in growth parameters viz., plant height, number of branches per plant, leaf area and dry matter accumulation, effective root nodules per plant, nodules dry weight, CGR, RGR and NAR observed in 100 % RDF (F1) with Rhizobium + PSB+ KMB + SSB (L 7) but the combination of 75% RDF with Rhizobium + PSB+ KMB + SSB (L 7) found the similar effect with 100% RDF with Rhizobium + PSB+ KMB + SSB (L 7). However, the combined treatment of 75% RDF with Rhizobium + PSB+ KMB + SSB (L 7) noticed significantly superior than other treatment.
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.
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.
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.
