Determination of Relationships between Plant Physical Characteristics for Yield Prediction Accuracy in Sugar Beet

Paper ID- AMA-21-02-2023-12039

In agricultural production, accurate crop yield and quality estimation in the early period are important factors in post-harvest planning. Although an acceptable accurate yield estimation is still made using terrestrial measurement methods, these methods are costly and time-consuming. The main difficulty in estimating yield and quality in products such as sugar beet is that the underground production section and its development cannot be physically monitored. The development status of the plant is generally monitored through the leaves. If a concrete relationship is deciphered between the plant indices and the growth stages of the plant, yield, and quality parameters can be monitored during the development period. To determine the physical relationships, the data of the four major production regions where 18% of Turkey's sugar production is realized were used for 2010-2020. In conclusion, the beet leaf reaches its maximum in the second half of July. In this period, the leaf-root relationship is medium-high, and leaf-sugar and leaf-yield relations are moderate. During the development of beet, root-sugar, and root-yield relationships are also at a medium-high level. When the rate of change is used together with the root/leaf ratio determined by months, it shows that accurate yield estimates can be made with these data.

Impact And Significance of CRM in Rural Banking – A Comprehensive Study

Paper ID- AMA-20-02-2023-12035

Customer relationship management (CRM) is a key strategy for rural banks to improve their customer service and increase customer satisfaction. In rural areas, where access to financial services is limited, rural banks play a crucial role in providing financial services to the rural population. CRM systems can help rural banks better understand their customers and provide tailored services, thereby increasing customer loyalty. The main goal of this paper is to review the role of CRM in rural banking and to discuss the recent trends and developments. CRM is a strategy and process that aims to understand, predict and manage the needs of customers in order to improve their satisfaction and loyalty. Rural banking, on the other hand, refers to the delivery of financial services to rural areas and is an important aspect of rural development. This study focuses on the challenges rural banks face in managing their customer relationships, the benefits of CRM for rural banks, and the recent trends and advancements in rural banking. The literature review section presents a comprehensive overview of the existing research on CRM in the banking sector. Regional rural and Co-operative banks are exclusively located in rural areas and are controlled by a small number of employees; they also provide good services within their capacity, but their CRM implementation is less effective than that of other banks. In order to retain and acquire the banking customer, the top management must collaborate with their staff to improve their services by providing information in local/regional languages and addressing complaints in a timely manner. In addition, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) is considering a new way to provide customers with the option of portability of their bank account from one bank to another for better services. It is time for upper management to introduce new technological initiatives in order to serve customers more effectively and efficiently.

Influence of micro climatic variables on population dynamics of Thrips tabaci Lindeman on onion

Paper ID- AMA-20-02-2023-12034

Onion thrips are of major concern in onion production. Thrips populations are influenced by various climatic variables, different transplanting dates, and spacings. Considering this, an investigation was undertaken to find out the influence of climatic variables on Thrips tabaci Lindeman under three different planting dates in West Bengal, India (15th Aug, 30th Aug, 14th Sept during kharif season and 30th Nov, 15th Dec and 30th Dec during rabi season) and three different spacings viz., 15cm × 10cm,15cm × 15cm and 20cm ×15cm(plant to plant by row to row)for two consecutive years. Thrips populations were not observed on Kharif planted onion which might be due to frequent rainfall which acts as a controlling factor of thrips. Closer spacing with dense foliage supported more built-up of thrips population than the widely spaced crop with sparse vegetation. Out of three dates of planting of rabi season crop, the 30th November planted onion crop was comparatively less infested by T. tabaci. The study unveiled that 30th November would be the best time to transplant the rabi onion crop with a spacing of 15cm × 10cm in the Gangetic plains of West Bengal for better yield. Also, the ambient temperature and canopy temperature were found to have a significant positive correlation while canopy humidity was negatively correlated with the thrips population. Besides the mentioned microclimatic variables, incidental and reflected photosynthetically active radiation also revealed a correlation with thrips population fluctuations on a few occasions.

Designing of Moringa incorporated instant food product

Paper ID- AMA-20-02-2023-12032

Standardization of nutritious and organoleptically suitable food products with market available foods is a challenge for food scientists and entrepreneurs. However, the benefits of such food-based strategies to prevent micronutrient malnutrition are manifold. Indian diets provide mostly non-heme iron, which is very poorly absorbed (only 2-20% bioavailability). Women in developing countries often consume inadequate amounts of micronutrients because of their limited intake of animal products, fruits, vegetables, and fortified foods. Intakes of micronutrients less than the recommended values increase a woman’s risk of having micronutrient deficiencies. The adverse effects of deficiencies in vitamin A, iron, and folic acid, including night-blindness in pregnant and lactating women and iron-deficiency anemia, are well known. Low intakes of nutrients including zinc, calcium, riboflavin, vitamin B6, and vitamin B12, also have consequences for women’s health, pregnancy outcome, and the health and nutritional status of breastfed children. Multiple deficiencies coexist, so the benefit of multiple micronutrient supplements is becoming increasingly apparent. These issues need to be discussed and guidance be provided on the selection of appropriate food for women of reproductive age in developing countries. In the study, Optimization of process parameters via RSM Box-Behnken design was done and based on the same product was finalised. The results of the present study indicated that inspite of nutrient losses, there is enough β-carotene retained in the developed instant dip drink food product to help in the eradication of several micronutrient deficiencies. It is need of the hour to promote moringa incorporation into the diet in India for a long way towards not only in alleviating micronutrient deficiencies, but also towards the development of functional foods for various chronic degenerative disorders. These efforts could also be an additional source of income generation, employment and export opportunities.

Field Efficacy of Biorational Insecticides Based Modules for the Management of Helicoverpa armigera (Hübner) in Chickpea

Paper ID- AMA-19-02-2023-12028

Experiments were conducted at Banda University of Agricultural & Technology, Banda in 2018-19 and 2019-2020 to evaluate the field efficacy of biorational insecticides-based modules consisting Azadirachtin, NSKE, Bt, NSKE and Indoxacarb against Helicoverpa armigera in chickpea. The Indoxacarb 15.8 EC @ 50 g a.i./ha + Chlorantraniliprole 18.5 SC @ 30 g a.i./ha was found most effective and in reducing H. armigera population. The field treated with this module recorded least pod damage 1.68% and 1.27% during 2018-19 and 2019-20, respectively. Data revealed that the fields treated with Indoxacarb 15.8 EC @ 50 g a.i./ha + Chlorantraniliprole 18.5 SC @ 30 g a.i./ha recorded highest yield of 21.3 q/ha & 22.82 q/ha during both the year and found to be the best treatment. The maximum cost benefit (C: B) ratio of 1: 5.33 and 1: 8.17 was obtained from Indoxacarb 15.8 EC + Chlorantraniliprole 18.5 SC @ 30 g a.i./ha during 2018-19 & 2019-20, respectively.
