A meta-analysis of the dynamics and distribution of the donkey population in India

Paper ID- AMA-25-10-2023-12675

The donkey, formerly thought of as the common man's tractor, is no longer a highly prized animal in many areas of India because mechanisation has replaced animal power in India's transportation, agriculture, and other commonplace tasks. Equine power, particularly donkey power, is still used in difficult hilly terrains where motorised vehicles cannot go. India is home to roughly 0.12 million "Beast of Burden" donkeys. Indian donkeys are present in a variety of agroclimatic regions. The sharp decreasing trend seen in the Livestock Census has made it necessary to learn about the present state of donkeys. The population of donkeys has decreased by 61.2% since the last census in 2012, which is blamed on a number of issues, including the mechanisation of brick kilns, disease outbreaks, illegal trade and slaughter, low-income generation, and other societal problems. However, the majority of India's donkeys are concentrated in rural areas, where they serve as a means of subsistence for those who are impoverished. This study focuses on the population dynamics and geographic distribution of donkeys in order to prepare future initiatives to preserve the biodiversity of this significant equid germplasm.

Experimental evidence of mortality in honey bee, Apis mellifera L. (Hymenoptera: Apidae), workers caused by entomopathogenic nematodes, Steinernema abbasi and Heterorhabditis indica (Nematoda: Rhabditida)

Paper ID- AMA-25-10-2023-12674

This study was conducted to test whether the entomopathogenic nematodes, Heterorhabditis indica and Steinernema abbasi, used in biological pest management programmes could potentially have adverse effects on honey bee, Apis mellifera workers. EPNs are considered as safe bio-agents which might be used as a bio-pesticide against the greater wax moth, Galleria mellonella infesting honeybee colonies without causing any harm to adult bees and brood. However, exposer of bee workers to Steinernema abbasi and Heterorhabditis indica under laboratory conditions confirmed the susceptibility of bee workers to nematode infection without successful recycling. The results obtained showed % mortality of bee workers exposed through feed (indirect exposer) were 37% and 61%, respectively, while for direct spray, the mortality percentages were 20% and 33% for H. indica and S. abbasi, respectively, under laboratory conditions. This study concluded that application of both S. abbasi and H. indica may not be the safe options to be used in any situation where honeybee workers or colonies are likely to be exposed during bio-control interventions.

Plant growth promotion and antimicrobial activity of bud endophyte Bacillus pumilus PM2 associated with ethnomedicinal plant Spilanthes acmella (L.) L. from biodiversity hotspot of Arunachal Pradesh, India

Paper ID- AMA-24-10-2023-12673

This study aims to identify and develop a novel inoculum of highly resistant endophytic bacteria associated with Spilanthes acmella (L.) L. from the unexplored forest rich region of the Eastern Himalayan region of Arunachal Pradesh. These bacteria can adapt to the local soil conditions and offer several benefits to plants. These isolates were obtained through surface sterilization and assessed for their ability to promote plant growth and combat fungal pathogens like Sclerotium rolfsii and Sclerotinia sclerotiorum. The most effective isolate PM2 was tested using a plant inoculation assay to measure its impact on the growth of a local rice cultivar. The antimicrobial compounds produced by this isolate were identified using Thin Layer Chromatography (TLC) and Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS). The isolate was further identified through 16S rRNA gene sequencing.

Effect of seedling age and bio-fertilizers on availability of Zinc for onion (Allium cepa L.) under different seedling age

Paper ID- AMA-23-10-2023-12672

The presented experiment was conducted at the horticulture nursery of college of agriculture, Gwalior, during the rabi seasons of 2019-20 and 2020-21 with same treatments and same site. The experiment was laid down in factorial randomized block design with two factors viz., Seedling age and bio fertilizers combinations along with 15 treatments combinations and three replications. The factor one have three levels viz., S-1 6 weeks, S2-7 weeks and S3-8 weeks whereas second factor BF1- un-inoculated (control), BF2- Azotobecter, BF3- Azotobecter+ PSB, BF4- Consortia (Azotobecter+ PSB + KMB) and BF5- Arka Microbial Consortium (Azotobecter+ PSB + ZSB). Based on pooled analysis maximum available zinc (0.55 mg kg-1) was recorded with 8 weeks old seedling and evaluation of different biofertilizers the maximum available of zinc (0.61 mg kg-1) was recorded with Arka Microbial Consortium (Azoto+ PSB + ZSB). Thus, the onion seedling of 8 weeks old transplanted with inoculation of Arka Microbial Consortium (S3 x BF5) recorded significantly higher available zinc (0.69 mg kg-1) than rest of treatment combinations.

“Screening of Garlic [Allium sativum (L.)] genotypes Growth, Yield and Quality Attributes in Malwa Region”

Paper ID- AMA-21-10-2023-12670

The mentioned experiment was conducted in rabi season of 2021-22 and 2022-23. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design (RBD) with three replications. All the genotypes were randomized separately in each replication. The experiment comprised of fifteen genotypes consisting Sehore selection-1, Sehore selection-3, Amletha, Ashta-2, G-282, Malkapuri, G-189, G-384, G-323, G-2, Ichawar-5, Ashta-3, Ujjain-4, Ujjain-7, Raipura-8. During screening of different genotypes for growth parameters of the garlic genotypes, the genotype T3 (Amletha) performed very well under Malwa climate and the same trends were also reported for yield parameters at different growth stages. During the evaluation of the quality parameter like colour the various colour were recorded in different genotypes. The colour of the superior genotype Amltha is perfect white with have good market compatible.
