Effect of Plant Growth Regulator and Vermicompost on Growth and Yield Parameters of Bottle Gourd [Lagenaria siceraria (mol.) standl.]

Paper ID- AMA-03-10-2023-12625

The present investigation in titled “Effect of growth regulators and vermicompost on female flower in bottle gourd [Langeraria sicenaria (mol.) standl.]’’ by Growth Regulators” at the Horticulture Research Farm, R.A.K college of Agriculture, Sehore (M.P.) during 2019-20 and 2020-21. This experiment was laid down in Randomized block design with three replications. The thirteen treatments viz., T1 (GA3 0 ppm + Vermicompost @ 0), T2 (GA3 25 ppm + Vermicompost. @ 2 t/ha), T3 (GA3 50 ppm + Vermicompost @ 4 t/ha), T4 (GA3 75 ppm + Vermicompost @ 6 t/ha) T5 (Etherel 100 ppm + Vermicompost @ 2 t/ha.), T6 (Etherel 200 ppm + Vermicompost @ 4 t/ha.), T7 (Etherel 300 ppm + Vermicompost @ 6 t/ha.) T8 (NAA 100 ppm + Vermicompost@ 2 t/ha.), T9 (NAA 150 ppm + Vermicompost @ 4 t/ha.), T10 (NAA 200 ppm + Vermicompost @ 6 t/ha.), T11 (CCC 200 ppm+ Vermicompost @ 2 t/ha.), T12 (CCC 400 ppm + Vermicompost @ 4 t/ha.) and T13 (CCC 600 ppm + Vermicompost @ 6 t/ha.) were evaluated during the experiment. The maximum days taken to first female flower were recorded under the treatment T1 (61.33 in 2019-20) and (62.00 in 2020-21). While the minimum days taken to first fruit picking significantly recorded under the treatment T6. In relation to sex ratio, the maximum sex ratio of flowers recorded under the treatment T1 (11.67 in 2019-20) and (10.83 in 2020-21. While the minimum sex ratio of flowers v experiment the treatment T6 found superior compare to control treatment.

Influence of weather on thrips population and tospovirus disease incidence in tomato crop

Paper ID- AMA-01-10-2023-12623

The present investigation on the population dynamics of thrips and bud necrosis disease on tomato crops (cv. Arka Vikas) was carried out during two consecutive crop growing seasons of Kharif, 2016 and 2017. Results revealed that there were two thrips species (Thrips palmi Karny and Scirtothrips dorsalis Hood) that occurred together at different crop growth stages and the population was high during the flowering stage (5.25 to 9.35 thrips/top three leaves), which later started to decline at crop maturity. The symptoms of bud necrosis disease started appearing after 3rd week of transplanting and increased gradually with necrosis symptoms on terminal buds followed by necrotic streaks on petioles and stems, leading to the complete collapse of the plants. The cumulative disease incidence was 43.80 % at the harvesting stage. Correlation analysis with the weather parameters indicated that rainfall and relative humidity exhibited a significant negative correlation with the thrips population and associated bud necrosis disease. While, the correlation of the miridbug, Nesidiocoris tenuis population, was linear with the thrips population and found throughout the cropping period.

Decision making pattern of farm women related to horticultural crops production in Raisen District of Madhya Pradesh

Paper ID- AMA-29-09-2023-12621

The present study was conducted in Raisen district of Madhya Pradesh during 2020-21 at the school of Agriculture sciences BRAUSS Mhow, M.P. The main objective of the present research was to study the decision making pattern of farm women related to horticultural crops production. For this study 180 randomly selected farm women were taken as a sample from study area. The study revealed that majority of the farmwomen belonged to medium decision making pattern related to horticultural crops production followed by low and high decision making pattern of horticultural crops production respectively.

Evaluation of different crop regulation methods on reproductive parameters of Guava (Psidium guajava L.) cv. G- 27

Paper ID- AMA-27-09-2023-12617

A crop regulation study was carried out on six- seven year old orchard of guava cv. G-27 during 2020-2021 and 2021-2022 to evaluate the effect of different crop regulation methods on reproductive characteristics. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design comprised of 16 treatments with 3 replication consisting of foliar spray of KI (0.5 %, 0.75 % and 1.0 %), NAA (400 ppm, 600 ppm and 800 ppm), Ethephon (600 ppm, 1200 ppm and 1800 ppm), bending of lateral branches with partial removal of old leaves (mid-April, mid-May and mid-June) and shoot pruning (up to 15 cm, up to 30 cm and up to 45 cm) with complete removal of old leaves and water spray as control. The result showed that all the treatment were significantly effective in summer deblossoming for avoiding rainy season crop and induce profuse flowering and fruiting during winter seasonin both the year as well as pooled data over to control. Among the treatments, foliar spray of NAA 800 ppm was recorded significantly maximum number of buds per plant (483.83), number of flowers per plant (431.36), fruit set (75.92 %), fruit retention (50. 94 %)and minimum bud drop (10.85 %) and flower drop (49.06 %), which was at par with bending of lateral branches with partial removal of old leaves in mid-June as compared to other treatments in pooled data. In case of minimum days taken to initiation of flower bud (39.67 days) was recorded significantly result under treatment of bending of lateral branches with partial removal of old leaves in mid-June followed by bending in mid May as compared to other treatments during pooled analysis.

Achieving higher yields in bell pepper infested with Meloidogyne incognita in organic protected cultivation by soil solarization and application bioagents in Haryana, India

Paper ID- AMA-27-09-2023-12616

In protected bell pepper cultivation, the root knot nematode Meloidogyne incognita poses a severe threat in North and South India. Growers resort to costly synthetic nematicides, which not only inflate expenses but also exhibit phytotoxicity. To address this, a two-year experiment in Badoli village, Panipat, aimed to save a farmer from dismantling his polyhouse due to three years of losses. Soil solarization was performed for two consecutive years, resulting in an 80.19% and 75.74% reduction in M. incognita in the first and second years, respectively. In the first year, soil solarization with Trichoderma viridae and in the second year with Pochonia chlamydosporia led to the greatest reduction in M. incognita populations in soil and roots. Interestingly, soil solarization with Pochonia chlamydosporia increased the population of free-living nematodes (35.10% and 23.11% above control in the first and second years, respectively), enhanced plant growth (5.89% and 2.64% above control at harvest), and yielded significantly more (25.07 t/ha, a 46.35% increase over control). The farmer's profit surged to Rs. 5.79 lakhs, compared to a meager Rs. 1.0 lakh. Overall, soil solarization alone reduced root knot nematode populations, while FYM fortified with three biocontrol agents improved plant growth, fruit weight, and capsicum quality. The approach of using 25-micron polythene sheets for soil solarization in polyhouses during May-June, combined with FYM enriched with Pochonia chlamydosporia (TNAU-Pc001) at 2 Kg/tonne FYM and 1000 g per sq m before sowing and after six months, is recommended for effective M. incognita control.
