Alfalfa is considered nutritious and beneficial for human health, but it is widely used as animal feed. To develop alfalfa functional food, this study investigated the physical, functional and structural properties of alfalfa leaf powder with particle sizes ranging from 0.063–0.250 mm. The brightness, solubility, and enzyme inhibitory activity of alfalfa leaf powder increased, as the particle size of powder decreased from 0.200-0.250 mm to 0.063-0.08 mm. The angle of repose, compressibility, transition temperature, and melting temperature were the lowest (41.37°, 15.63%, 79.00℃, and 160.54℃ respectively), the swelling index was the highest (4.39 mL g-1), when the particle size of powder ranged from 0.125–0.160 mm. Further analysis of the microstructure showed that the surface roughness, the number of hydroxyls and the crystallinity index decreasing, as the particle size of powder decreased from 0.200-0.250 mm to 0.063-0.08 mm. Results showed that the particle size of alfalfa leaf powder ranging from 0.125–0.160 mm is more convenient to process and prevent obesity, smaller size is more beneficial to prevent hypertension and aging.
The prehistoric cavemen‟s earliest form of communication was gesture. Human civilization has progressed to a point where verbal communication is quite well developed. On the other hand, nonverbal interaction has not lost its importance. Nonverbal interaction is not utilized only for physically handicapped people but also for a variety of uses like variety of fields, including aviation, surveying and music. It is the most effective way to communicate with the computer without the usage of other devices like keyboard or a mouse. Researchers all over the world are working on developing a reliable and well-organized gesture identification system, particularly hand gesture identification, for a variety of applications. Data collecting, gesture modelling, feature extraction, and hand gesture identification are the primary phases involved in hand gesture recognition system. With the processes listed above, there are various sub steps and approaches. Researchers have used a variety of algorithms or created their own. The current study effect examines the work done over previous two decades and makes a quick comparison to understand the problems and limitations that these systems face. Finally the properties of a reliable and efficient hand gesture system were defined.
The present investigation was conducted to access the relative performance, genetic variability, heritability and genetic gain in selected set of tomato germplasm, consisting of twenty genotypes along with one standard check variety. The experiment was laid under completely randomized block design (RBD) in three replications at Regional Research Station Karnal, CCS Haryana Agricultural University, during the spring summer season of 2019-20. The observations were recorded for twenty-one parameters pertaining to the morpho-phenological, yield and quality traits in tomato. Statistics from analysis of variance showed substantial differences among the genotypes unveiling the plausible presence of significant genetic variability within the selected germplasm which could be positively exploited in crop improvement programmes. The cynosure of this investigation was yield per hectare (q) which observed moderate GCV (13.67), PCV (13.77) and high heritability (98.57%) coupled with high genetic advance (27.96%). The genotypes namely Castle Rock, PNR-7, DVRT-2, DVRT-6, H-86 and Punjab Upma were found superior in terms of both overall yield and quality, whereas, PHS, H-86, Pusa Gaurav and Palam Pink were found superior in terms of earliness and quality traits.
The success of the two-mass system control problem heavily depends on the accuracy information of the load torque. In the paper, a radial basis function neural network structure is proposed to deal with load torque estimation. The estimated value is integrated with backstepping- sliding mode control to guarantee speed tracking performance in the presence of a non-rigid driving shaft. The stability of the closed-loop is proven analytically and illustrated numerically. In addition, the effectiveness of the proposed control is compared with a high gain observer-based structure.
A two year field experiment was conducted during Rabi seasons of 2015-16 and 2016-17 to study the response of organic sources of nutrients and weed management on productivity and weed dynamics of potato. Application of 100% organics (100% recommended N through different organic sources each equivalent to 1/3 of recommended N i.e. FYM+ vermicompost + non edible oil cake) + VAM recorded significantly higher plant height, tuber yield, soil organic carbon, available N, P and K and nutrient uptake which was statistically at par with 100% organics (100% recommended N through different organic sources each equivalent to 1/3 of recommended N i.e. FYM+ vermicompost + non edible oil cake) + marigold for potato on border as trap crop and 100% organics (100% recommended N through different organic sources each equivalent to 1/3 of recommended N i.e. FYM+ vermicompost + non edible oil cake). Whereas, the application of 50% recommended N through vermicompost + biofertilizers for N + rock phosphate to substitute the P requirement + PSB recorded higher net returns and B: C ratio. Amongst the weed management treatments, application of mustard seed meal @ 5 t/ha resulted in highest plant height, tuber yield and soil organic carbon which was statistically at par with application of rice bran @ 4 t/ha and weed free treatment. Significantly lowest weed density, dry weight and nutrient uptake by weeds was recorded with weed free treatment followed by the application of mustard seed meal @ 5 t/ha and rice bran @ 4 t/ha. Among the weed management treatments, highest weed control efficiency was recorded with the application of mustard seed meal @ 5 t/ha followed by rice bran @ 4 t/ha.
