Melia dubia Cav. is a Meliaceae family and the synonym of Melia composite Willd. It is a fast-growing deciduous tree with a strong, straight cylindrical bole and broad branches. The increased demand for wood and fiber and the declining availability of wood supplies have prompted investigations into the potential fast-growing species suitable for various wood-based industries, in particular, the pulp and paper industry. A diverse range of short-rotation forestry species have been deployed for commercial utility and large-scale plantations have been established as a source of industrial wood raw materials. Tissue culture plays an important role in solving the problem through rapid in vitro multiplication of novel genotypes and screening useful variants. Currently, successful methodologies have been developed through tissue culture and their possible application in forestry. The micro propagation studies identified nodal segments as ideal explant; the MS + 5.0mgl -1 of Kinetin and 2.0mgl -1 of BAP as the medium for shoot bud organogenesis and MS medium containing 3mg l -1 of IAA and 2mg l -1 of IBA as ideal medium for rhizogenesis.
This study aimed to investigate the influence of various processing techniques on the physico-chemical and functional characteristics of barley. Barley grains were subjected to seven different pretreatments viz., soaking, germination (48 h), germination (72 h), cooking, malting, roasting and popping. During the study, the assessment of physico-chemical and functional characteristics of barley depicted that the barley subjected to germination (72 h) recorded maximum water absorption capacity (100.40%), oil absorption (191.61%) and minimum bulk density (0.48%). During study it was further observed that barley subjected germination (72 h) recorded maximum L* value, minimum a* and b* values. Barley germination for 72 hours also recorded maximum crude protein (14.81%), crude fat (2.66%), crude fibre (5.72%), and total ash (2.39%) significantly. During the storage period of 90 days, the mean moisture content increased but the crude protein, crude fat, crude fibre, total total ash content of barley flour decreased significantly. On the basis of physico-chemical and functional characteristics of barley, treatment T3 (germination 72 h) was found to be the best among all processing methods.
The present study has been undertaken to identify the best Linear and Non-Linear growth models for the area, production and production of cereals in Tamil Nadu and to predict future forecasts (up to 2025 A.D). The time series data about the area, production and productivity of cereals in Tamil Nadu were collected from the Seasonal crop report of Tamil Nadu for the period of 50 years i.e., from 1971-72 to 2020-2021. The objective of this study was to fit different trend equations like linear and non-linear growth models of cereals in Tamil Nadu and then select the most appropriate model. The best-fitted model for future projection was chosen based upon the highest Theil's U-Statistic, coefficient of determination (R2) and with the least MAPE, MAE and RMSE values for the purpose of future forecasts up to 2025 A.D. It is observed that the average area, production and productivity of cereals in Tamil Nadu during the study period were 3242 thousand hectares, 7429 thousand tonnes and 2409 kg/ ha respectively. The future forecasts by the cubic model indicated that there would be a substantial increase area, production and productivity in the future. It was observed that the forecasted area by 2025 AD would be 3390 thousand hectares. The forecasted production and productivity would be 13093 thousand tonnes and 4229kg /ha respectively by 2025 AD.
Thirty-one French bean genotypes (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) including 22 genotypes obtained from NBPGR, New Delhi, six genoytpes collected from lower Pulne hills of Western Ghats and three released varieties viz., TKD 1, Arka Sukomal and Sonali were evaluated in Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) with three replications during 2020-2022 at Horticultural Research Station, Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Thadiyankudisai, Tamil Nadu. Genotypic and phenotypic correlation studies for nine characters were assessed for association between different characters, direct and indirect effects of component traits on pod yield and other horticultural traits viz., days to first flowering, days to 50% flowering, pod length (cm), pod girth (cm), number of pods per plant, pod weight (g), yield per plant (g), yield per plot (kg), yield per hectare (t) of French bean. The results revealed that days to first flowering and days to 50% flowering had associated negatively and significantly with pod yield. The other traits viz., pod length, pod girth, number of pods per plant and pod weight showed positive and significant correlation with pod yield in French bean.
In the present investigation, an attempt has been made to study the effect of land use systems on soil physical, chemical and biological properties in eastern and south-eastern coastal plain zone of Odisha. We have employed Completely Randomized Design (CRD) technique over eight land use systems to analyze different soil properties of soil viz. MBC, MBN, SBP, SFP, SOC, BD, PD, EC, PH. It has been found from the analysis that the MBC, MBN, soil bacterial and fungal population is the higher in natural forest than other tree based land use systems. The bulk density, particle density, pH and EC of soils in different tree based land use systems are negatively correlated with microbial properties of soil but water holding capacity, soil organic carbon and available nitrogen is positively correlated with microbial properties of soil in different tree based land use systems. Among the tree based land use systems homestead agro forestry and teak plantation recorded physico-chemical and microbial properties comparable with natural forest and better than agricultural rice lands. It is found from the study that the land use homestead agro-forestry and teak plantation are recommended in the coastal area of Odisha for soil health improvement and sustainable production.
