Incidence and Intensity of Sugarcane Internode Borer Chilo sacchariphagus indicus (Kapur) in Cauvery Delta region of Tamil Nadu and its Management

Paper ID- AMA-15-02-2023-12018

Experiments were carried out in cane crop planted during April month under wider row planting with single bud setts in Cauvery delta region in Thanjavur district of TamilNadu for three years from 2019 to 2022 to assess the incidence and intensity of internodeborer in sugarcane crop in Cauvery Delta region and to evaluate the sex pheromone traps for mass trapping of male moths of Internodeborer and its effect on sugarcane yield. The incidence and intensity of internode borer was recorded on fornightly basis and consolidated into monthly basis. The weather factors viz maximum, minimum temperature, number of rainy days, rainfall and relative humidity were recorded daily and consolidated on monthly basis. The incidence of internodeborer was correlated with weather factors. Relative humidity (r = 0.013), No of rainy days (r = 0.379) and Rain fall (r = 0.4 89) are positively correlated with incidence of internode borer and negatively correlated with Average temp (r = -0.634). The male moth trapped in sex phermone traps were recorded daily and consolidated in standard week basis and the percent internodeborer damage was recorded in each treatment on 5 th ,7th ,9th and at harvest along with yield. The cumulative internodeborer incidence at harvest revealed that the lowest cumulative incidence of internodeborer incidence of 19.36 percent with 53.88 percent reduction was recorded in 20 traps /ac installed treatments followed by 15 traps /ac in which the internode borer incidence of 25.16 percent with reduction of 33.16 percent was recorded as compared to 37.64 percent in control. The highest cane yield of 97.96 tonnes/ha was recorded in 20 traps /ac installed treatments followed by 15 traps/ac in which cane yield of 92.82 tonned/ha was recorded as against 87.83 tonnes/ha in control. The best CB ratio of 2.34 was recorded in 20 traps /ac installed treatments.

In sprayers Possibilities of using air motors Possibilities of using pneumomotors in sprinklers

Paper ID- AMA-14-02-2023-12017

Pneumatic motors have existed in many forms over the past two centuries, ranging in size from hand-held motors to engines of up to several hundred horsepower. Some types rely on pistons and cylinders; others on slotted rotors with vanes (vane motors) and others use turbines. Many compressed air engines improve their performance by heating the incoming air or the engine itself. Pneumatic motors have found widespread success in the hand-held tool industry, but are also used stationary in a wide range of industrial applications. Continual attempts are being made to expand their use to the transportation industry. However, pneumatic motors must overcome inefficiencies before being seen as a viable option in the transportation industry. In the scientific project we discussed the perspective of use of the rotor type pneumo engines in portable splashers (sprinklers). Mathematic modelling of the pneumatic engines is chosen and worked out, gauge sizes, amount of increasing the air, the amount of rotating moment during the rotation of the rotor and the amount of the engine.

Modeling of CO2 Emissions and Estimation of Economic Indices for Orange Production Using Artificial Neural Networks Based on Energy Consumption

Paper ID- AMA-13-02-2023-12016

In this study, Türkiye's Mediterranean Region Adana Province in artificial neural networks (ANNs) prediction of orange production of greenhouse gases (GHG) by using yield and economic indices model was suitable for analyzing emissions. The energy consumption (EC) of three groups of orange groves consisting of 65 orange producers has been found; Average total energy use and horticultural production yield were found as 31116.50 MJ.ha-1 and 31402.8 kg.ha-1, respectively. In addition, economic indices were found for orange groves. Accordingly, the benefit-cost ratio, productivity, net return, and energy density (ED) are respectively 1.01, 1.01 kg . MJ-1, 286.30 MJ.ha-1, 2.21 MJ.$ -1; In the GHG analysis, the average of the total GHG emissions (G HGE) was found to be approximately 759.58 kgCO2eq.ha-1. Results show that the nitrogen share (41.89%) in GHGE has the highest share for orange production, followed by diesel fuel (14.09%) and electricity (13.77%) consumption, respectively. For the yield and GHGE of orange production, for the 10-6-2 ANN model with the best topology, the determination coefficient (R2) was calculated as 0.974 and 0.986, respectively. At the same time, It was observed that seed and human labor had the highest sensitivity in modeling orange yield and GHGE, with values of 0.026 and 0.058, respectively.

Molecular characterization and phylogenetic analysis of viruses associated with garlic and onion in Indian Punjab

Paper ID- AMA-11-02-2023-12010

Garlic and onion grown in Indian Punjab are usually infected with several viruses including the common allium viruses of the genera Allexivirus, Potyvirus and Carlavirus. Onion Yellow Dwarf Virus (OYDV), Shallot Latent Virus (SLV) and Garlic Virus D (GarV-D) were indentified by RT-PCR assay using virus-specific primer sets. BLASTn analysis of sequences confirmed the presence of OYDV and GarV-D, SLV in infected onion and garlic samples, respectively. During BLASTn analysis OYDV isolate (KP862051) shared 98-99% identity with OYDV isolates (KP862053, KP862052) from Ludhiana and 97% similarity with OYDV isolate (FR833734) from New Delhi. Whereas in the case of garlic viruses, SLV (KR074209) had 91% similarity to SLV isolate (EF600902) from New Delhi and GarV-D isolate (KR045606) showed a maximum resemblance of 99% with GarV-D isolate (HQ724840) from Spain. OYDV isolate (KP862051) shared 79% nt identity with Rajasthan isolate (EU045556) and 72.9% with New Delhi isolate (FR873734), GarV-D isolate (KR045606) shared maximum 99.5% nt similarity with Spain isolate (HQ724840) and SLV isolate (KR074209) shared 90.8 nt similarity with New Delhi isolate (EF600902). Phylogenetic analysis of nucleotide sequences revealed that Indian isolates of OYDV and GarV-D have significantly the closest phylogenetic relationship with Indian and abroad isolates, however SLV isolate (KR074209) was found significantly divergent from abroad isolates. Phylogenetic analysis confirms the evolutionary origin of OYDV and SLV from Indian ancestors and GarV-D origin from Spain isolates. Present investigation unravels the virus diversity, subgrouping, evolutionary history within the allium viruses in India.

Exploring the relationships between agricultural productivity, economic growth, population growth, and environmental sustainability in India: Evidence from Symmetric ARDL Modeling

Paper ID- AMA-11-02-2023-12009

The study aims to gauge the symmetric effects of agriculture productivity on carbon–dioxide emissions in India during the post-reform era. The findings divulge the long-run symmetric association between agriculture productivity, economic growth, population growth, and CO2 emissions in India. The ARDL results demonstrate that increased agricultural productivity aggravates environmental pollution and deteriorates the environmental quality in India. The results also confirm that higher economic growth is not environmentally friendly in India because it increases CO2 emissions in India. Another surprising result is that the higher population growth negatively affects the CO2 emissions in India. These empirical findings require serious commitments by the Indian government to curb natural resource depletion by prioritizing more towards eco-innovations and green-energy initiatives. The proposed symmetric model offers unique insights for policymakers to enhance environmental quality and achieve environmental sustainability in India.
