Genetic Variation and Character Association Studies in Segregating Population of Bread Wheat [Triticum aestivum L.]

Paper ID- AMA-23-06-2022-11487

The current study used an Augmented Block Design to analyses 50 wheat genotypes (segregating population) and 5 controls at the research farm of the Department of Genetics and Plant Breeding, School of Agriculture, Lovely Professional University, Phagwara, Punjab. The present study revealed that the phenotypic coefficient of variation was higher than the corresponding genotypic coefficient of variation for all the traits which might be due to interaction of the genotypic with the environment to some degree or other explaining environmental factors influencing the expression of these characters. High heritability coupled with high genetic advance was observed for number of productive tillers per plant, number of spikelets per ear, ear weight, number of ears per plant, number of grains per ear, test-weight, biological yield per plant, harvest index, grain yield per plant. Both phenotypic and genotypic correlation when analyzed, days to 50% heading, plant height, number of productive tillers per plant, number of ears per plant, days to maturity and harvest index have shown significantly positive correlation with grain yield per plant. In present study, Path co efficient revealed that among fourteen characters, ten characters have shown direct positive effect on grain yield per plant which are number of productive tillers per plant, number of spikelet’s per ear, ear length, biological yield per plant and harvest index, days to maturity, plant height, ear weight, number of ears per plant, test-weight and four characters have shown direct negative effect on grain yield per plant which are days to 50% heading, chlorophyll content, canopy temperature and number of grains per ear.

Awareness and Knowledge of farm women regarding climate change

Paper ID- AMA-23-06-2022-11486

Climate Change directly affects agriculture production & production efficiency. It affects agriculture in terms of productivity, agriculture practices, environmental effects, rural space and adaptation. Climate change is the biggest threat to agriculture in India but still the farmers are not fully aware of climate change and its indicators, causes & impacts. The objective of the study was to know the extent of awareness and knowledge of farm women regarding climate change, its effects and situation specific coping strategies. The study was conducted in village Gudli of Mavli block from Udaipur district of Rajasthan State. For this, the data was collected from 100 farm women. The data was analysed using appropriate statistical tools like frequency, percentages. More than half of the respondents i.e. 58 per cent had medium and 42 per cent had high awareness about causes of climate change. A majority (85%) of the respondents were aware about the ill effect of pesticides, increase of disease of crop (62%) and increase in infestation of pest due to climate change (47%). The awareness regarding global warming (68%), use of pesticides & burning of fossils and farm waste was not there to most of the respondents (51-54%). The knowledge about flood was nil in all the respondents (100%) as Rajasthan is not flood prone area.

Comparative biomass evolution of microalgae scenedesmus sp. between a raceway and a tubular photobioreactor for CO2 capture

Paper ID- AMA-22-06-2022-11485

A comparison of culture biomass evolution for the microalgae Scenedesmus spinosus in a tubular pilot photobioreactor of 1.6 m³ and a raceway pilot photobioreactor of 1.2 m³ was carried out, using a nutritional Z-8 medium with the injection of carbon dioxide, and using an electronic system for monitoring and control of operational variables. For three weeks of testing, each culture was exposed to three pH levels of 6.5, 7.0 or 7.5, where random samples from both bioreactors were taken three times a week, to analyze pH, turbidity, transmittance at 640 nm and temperature. At the beginning and the end of culture, total solids were analyzed, and photographs were taken with a microscope to study the cell conditions of culture. This study revealed that the highest biomass production of Scenedesmus spinosus was obtained at pH 6.5 in the raceway photobioreactor, with a productivity of 371 g m-3 day-1, 0.78 % total solids, a turbidity of 858 NTU and 5% transmittance at the end of the culture.

A new report of Cystolepiota moelleri from South east Asia on the basis of Morphoanatomical and DNA Barcoding

Paper ID- AMA-22-06-2022-11483

Cystolepiota is rarely studied in Pakistan, here we survey and describe new record of Cystolepiota from Himalayan moist temperate region of Pakistan. Originally, it was described from Europe. Cystolepiota moelleri Knudsen resembles with Western Asian collection in having free lamellae and non-dextrinoid spores. It differs in its rounded pileus and cylindrical cheilocystidia. The species is provided with full morpho-anatomical and phylogenetic description with line drawings of the microcharacters, discussion of related and similar species, and molecular data.

Comparative effects of inorganic and organic trace minerals supplementation on the expression of immune regulatory genes in broilers

Paper ID- AMA-21-06-2022-11480

Broiler production in tropical countries is generally sub-optimal. Inorganic and organic trace minerals supplementation improves immunity, growth performance in the broilers. In the poultry diet, trace minerals (zinc [Zn], selenium [Se], and chromium [Cr]) are normally administered in the inorganic form which has been traditionally considered as the most cost-effective and easily available but organic forms of these trace minerals have a higher bioavailability, lower dietary inclusion and cause less environmental pollution as compared to inorganic form. This study aimed to investigate the effect of different concentrations of organic and inorganic forms of trace minerals (Zn, Se and Cr) supplementation (0-35 days) in immune regulatory genes expression and biochemical parameters in broilers. A total of 216 broilers were randomly divided into twelve groups supplemented with different concentration of these trace minerals. RT-PCR expression analysis of ChIL-12p35 and ChIFN- genes in the bursa of Fabricius and spleen revealed that maximum up-regulation of ChIL-12p35 was in the T3 group; whereas, the maximum up-regulation of ChIFN- gene was in the T12 group as compared to the control group. Total serum protein, albumin, globulin and serum electrolyte were significantly higher (p<0.05) in the organic trace mineral supplemented group. From the present study results, it can be concluded that the effect of supplementing organic trace minerals to broilers on the expression of the immunoregulatory gene and biochemical parameters is better than their inorganic counterpart.
