Preparation of Fish Ham Using Low Value Fish by mixing Red Meat of Tuna Chunks and its Quality Attributes

Paper ID- AMA-24-08-2021-10644

The fish and fishery products represent an excellent option as a major source of nutrients. The consummation of fish is compatible with the reduction of various diseases. The objective of the current study was to prepare the ham using low-value fish mixing with red meat of tuna chunk and its proximate composition and sensory attribute. The low-value fish bull's eye and Tuna were collected from the Mangalore landing center. The preliminary quality of raw material was analyzed. Fish ham was prepared by mixing fish paste and cured tuna cubes (60:40). The obtained results for the preliminary quality of raw material showed that all the biochemical, microbiological parameters were within an acceptable range and raw material was fit for the preparation of Fish ham. The results of proximate composition revealed that the fish ham is a good source of protein, fat, and ash contents that are required in human diets. The result of the sensory score of the sensory attributes overall acceptability showed 8.50 from the 9.00 hedonic scale which indicates the excellent results from the human acceptability point of view. The current study developed the process protocol of fish ham preparation using low-value fish underutilized and fetched a low price in the market.

Life cycle and pathogenicity of Meloidogyne graminicola on Pearl millet hybrid HHB 272

Paper ID- AMA-24-08-2021-10642

Rice root-knot nematode, Meloidogyne graminicola is an important endo-parasite of various cultivated crops. Life cycle and pathogenicity of this nematode was studied under screen house condition. It completed its life cycle (J2-J2) in 23 days at mean maximum and minimum temperature 34.12 °C and 25.57 °C, respectively. Study show that plant growth parameters viz. root length, shoot length; fresh and dry plant weight was adversely affected with increasing nematode inoculum level. Low nematode inoculum level (500 J2/kg soil) was found as pathogenic level.

Computational Analysis of the Water Quality and Eutrophication Status Using Water Quality Index of Gharana Wetland Reserves in Jammu (J&K), India

Paper ID- AMA-23-08-2021-10641

Gharana is a small wetland near the international border of India with Pakistan in the RS Pura sector of Jammu, J&K having an area of 0.75 sq. Km. The wetland is facing a severe threat of pollution through various sources which make it unsuitable for feeding and swimming of fish and bird fauna. The main objectives of this paper are to assess the water quality and eutrophication status of the wetland. Water quality monitoring and analysis of the wetland were carried out from 2015 to 2018. The wetland water quality was assessed as per the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) standards for drinking purposes, which showed that all the parameters except turbidity were found within the permissible limit. Physico-Chemical analyses of soil and water have been performed and correlation analysis of water quality parameters has been done. The observed data is very limited therefore, getting biased results on applying any computation method is highly likely. Therefore, this study primarily focuses on analyzing the principal contributors in affecting the water quality index. This research uses R programming for experiments and analysis. The results showed that water samples of pre-monsoon fall under the category of very poor water quality while that of post-monsoon fall under the category of unsuitable for drinking. The water quality index readings ranged from 58.92 to 106.66. The lesser minerals in the water also indicated that the water has had less time in contact with the rocks. Further, the analysis of soil samples showed high content of macronutrients viz., nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium. The eutrophication status of the wetland has been assessed using phosphate data which showed that it is facing the problem of eutrophication which is indicating a necessity of taking regular measures for conservation and restoration.

Genome Modification for Improving Quality and Productivity of Horticultural Crops

Paper ID- AMA-23-08-2021-10639

Horticulture crops are the important part of human’s life as they provide many valuable products. Efforts are continuously going on to improve the quality of these crops by modifying their genome. Previously, researchers have introgressed new traits from their crossable relatives by using conventional breeding. However, the conventional breeding is time-consuming and tedious due to the loss of the genetic diversity by domestication and less availability of the donor species. With the advent of sequencing technology, it becomes easier to screen the genome of the wild relatives. Though, due to the incompatibility of the wild relatives with the cultivated ones, it becomes difficult to introgress new traits by crossing. To overcome these barriers, other techniques including tissue culture, mutagenesis and genetic engineering have been developed to modify the genome of the crops. The combination of these techniques along with the breeding has greatly enhanced the quality and productivity of the horticulture crops. Till date various horticulture crops has been genetically modified and released as commercial varieties. This review insight the techniques of the genome modification used to improve the horticulture crops.


Paper ID- AMA-22-08-2021-10636

This study was carried out to determine the suitability of the inverted T-type furrow opener of no-till machine used in many areas of the world but has not yet found production and use in our country. For this purpose, inverted T type furrow openers in different sizes and dimensions were designed and produced. Field trials were also made to determine the success of planting of T type furrow opener. Three different inverted T-type furrow openers (115°, 120° and 125° wing angles) and a conventional double disc furrow opener were tested in terms of plant emergence and distribution uniformity in field conditions. In the study; corn was sown by no-tillage planter with four different furrow openers under two different stubble conditions, namely the stand stubble and chopping stubble between 2018-2019 years. In this study, the inverted T type furrow openers were more successful than the double disc opener in terms of both plant emergence parameters and plant distribution uniformity. When the inverted T type openers are compared within themselves, the furrow opener with 125 ° wing angle (5,03 day) was successful in terms of plant emergence parameters and also the furrow opener with 120° wing angle (quality of feed index %87,87) was more successful in terms of accuracy of horizontal plant distribution.
