Optimization of in-vitro protocol for rapid mass multiplication of floribunda rose cv. ‘Rose Sherbet’

Paper ID- AMA-22-09-2023-12609

An in-vitro protocol was developed for rapid mass multiplication of rose cv. ‘Rose Sherbet’ under in-vitro condition using axillary buds as explants segment. Out of different pre-treatments for explants, the highest explant survival (76.41 %) and less microbial contamination (13.5) was obtained with treatment (T1) 0.2% Carbendazim + 200 mg/L 8-HQC for 3 hours. Ex plant surface sterilized with 0.1 % HgCl2 for 5 minutes exhibited the maximum survival percentage (74.46%). MS medium supplemented with 5.0 mg/L BAP + 0.1 mg/L NAA + 0.5 mg/L GA3 was found most effective for culture establishment, however, MS medium comprising 4.0 mg/L BAP + 0.1mg/L NAA+ 0.2 mg/L kinetin along with 40 mg/L adenine sulphate was found to be better for shoot proliferation with highest number of micro shoots (4.96 shoots/explant). Elongation of plantlets and maximum internode length was recorded in MS + GA3 2.0 mg/L while rooting of micro shoots was induced on MS basal medium supplemented with IBA (0.5 mg/L). The regenerated plantlets were efficiently hardened in plastic pots (4”) filled with coco peat + vermiculite + perlite (1:1:1) which is further moistened with half strength MS medium salts and covered with polythene. Survival percentage, plant height, number of branches and number of leaves/plants were found maximum in this treatment. Thereafter, plants were successfully transferred to the glasshouse with good survival.

Unveiling the Biochemical Metamorphosis of Tea Before and After Helopeltis theivora Infestation

Paper ID- AMA-22-09-2023-12608

Helopeltis theivora, a severe pest, damages young tea plant buds, reducing black tea quality. We studied Tocklai vegetative clones TV1 and TV23 at four infestation levels (none, low, moderate, high). Results showed significant differences in various biochemical qualities. Moisture dropped from 3.04% to 2.13%, dry matter increased from 96.96% to 97.86%, caffeine decreased from 3.71% to 2.50%, DPPH antioxidant activity declined from 70.44% to 51.26%, TSS decreased from 44.60% to 36.78%, and total polyphenol content decreased from 22.38% to 14.99%. TV1 had the highest TF:TR ratio (1:10.89) in non-infested samples, while TV23 had the lowest (1:7.63) in heavily infested samples. Brightness (%) ranged from 33.07% to 46.07%, and color index from 4.2% to 5.32%. Organoleptic qualities (brightness, briskness, strength, quality) decreased with increasing infestation, highlighting the negative impact of Helopeltis theivora on tea quality.

Mulching improves strawberry fruit yield and quality by regulating soil temperature and anti-oxidant enzyme activities in humid tropical India

Paper ID- AMA-20-09-2023-12606

Little information exists on the effect of mulching and its mechanisms regulating environmental factors, as well as biochemical constituents to improve yield and quality of strawberry (Fragaria × ananassa, Duch.)in humid tropical India. The effects of different coloured plastic mulches (black, transparent, and red) and organic mulches (paddy straw, banana leaves and weeds) were tested on the yield and quality of strawberries. The mean fruit yield with black plastic mulching was 68% greater than the control. Total sugar, reducing sugar, and total soluble solids were 19, 16, and 17% higher in black polythene mulching, whereas, ascorbic acids and organic acids were significantly lower under plastic mulching than in control. Activities of catalase, phenoloxidase and perosxidase were lower under plastic mulching than in control. Black polythene adjusted environmental factors and physiological processes to boost productivity and quality of strawberry fruits.

ANALYSIS OF THE SOCIO-ECONOMIC AND PSYCHOLOGICAL PROFILE OF RURAL YOUTH OF BARGARH DISTRICT OF ODISHA

Paper ID- AMA-19-09-2023-12604

In the academic year 2018–19, the study was carried out in the Bargarh district of the state of Odisha. 120 respondents in total were chosen for the investigation's purposes. The socioeconomic and psychological profiles of the respondents were analysed using descriptive statistics (mean, frequency distribution), and they were ranked as a result. In terms of socioeconomic profile, data collected on education showed that the majority (40%) of respondents had only completed high school, the majority (71.66%) were married, the majority (65.00%) had no membership in any organisations, and the majority (100.00%) of respondents received information about agri-related activities from friends, neighbours, relatives, and farmer friends. The majority (60.00%) had no membership in any organisations. According to the respondents' psychological profiles, the majority of respondents (mean score=1.93) preferred to increase their income through crop production, the majority of respondents (mean score=1.82) had psychology to choose agriculture farming as a career, and the majority of respondents (mean score=1.77) preferred agriculture labours. The socioeconomic profile of a person's education, scientific attitude, and preference for agricultural work among rural adolescents are all highly relevant factors. The youth's adoption of cutting-edge technology will be facilitated by need-based, problem-oriented, and location-specific technologies. Young people in rural areas need to be given the skills necessary to use cutting-edge technologies, which will increase their income and standard of living.

Review of research work on the application of remote sensing to agriculture for the Tunisian semi-arid case

Paper ID- AMA-18-09-2023-12602

This meta-analysis discuss the underutilization of remote sensing technology in Tunisia's agricultural sector, attributed to a lack of expertise among stakeholders. To address this, the authors have created an article to guide stakeholders on how to leverage remote sensing for various applications including soil texture estimation, drought monitoring, and crop yield prediction, among others. The article, described as the first of its kind focused on Tunisia, aims to elucidate the methods and benefits of remote sensing in agriculture, detailing satellite sensors and vegetation indices utilized in this technology. It intends to function as a foundational resource for stakeholders to embark on informed applications of remote sensing in agriculture.
