Mathematical model to estimate grain yield loss in durum wheat (Triticum durum Desf.) genotypes growing under semi-arid conditions

Paper ID- AMA-21-12-2022-11910

This experimental study was carried at the experimental station for field crops ITGC in Setif -Algeria- during the cropping season 2020-2021. The objectives of this study are to evaluate the parameters of the technological quality of three genotypes of durum wheat (Triticum durum Desf.) sown in semi-arid conditions and to estimate the efficiency of using the mathematical model to estimate the loss of grain yield based on the grain moisture in the field. The samples were taken from the physiological maturity of the grains, where the harvest was delayed by 13 days; The analysis of variance revealed that the effects of genotype are significant for all technological parameters. The genotypes tested showed acceptable protein levels (13.70 - 15.40 %). Addition-ally, all genotypes had high test weight (79.47 - 81.97 kg/hl) and a low rate of grain non vitreous (1 - 10.50 %). 13 days after physiological maturity, grain moisture decreased to less than 9.5% for all genotypes tested. Correlations test indicated that there are significant and positive correlations between grain moisture in field and grain yield, this indicates that the final yield decreases as the grain moisture decreases, and this is confirmed by the model, that is, after the physiological maturity of the grains, 1% loss of grain moisture, there is a loss of about 2.90 q/h of grain yield.

Bio management of Root Knot Nematode (Meloidogyne incognita) Infecting Tomato under Precision Farming System

Paper ID- AMA-21-12-2022-11909

The intention for this experiment is to investigate on standard module for the management of root knot nematode, Meloidogyne incognita infected with tomato. The highest reduction in soil and root population (241.26 and 212.38) of root knot nematode, M. incognita was observed in P. lilacinus (root dip) +T. viride (2 kg/ha) + Marigold intercrop treated plot at time of harvest. The control plot which was found to be maximum population of nematodes in soil and root respectively 1252.54 and 1224.88. Significant reduction in root knot index was observed in the treatment with P. lilacinus (root dip) + T. viride (2 kg/ha)+ Marigold intercropped plot was recorded 1.2 per cent. The roots in untreated control recorded the highest lesion index of 5.00.

Effect of drought on Cotton Genotypes under field condition

Paper ID- AMA-21-12-2022-11907

The cotton grow in drought condition is a matter of interest to research workers due to in short supply of water to cotton grow in area to area and a solemn problem in rainfed cotton growing area. The field experiment was laid down that the twenty genotypes grown in randomized block design with three replications during Kharif season of 2016-17 and 2017-18. The investigations gained on effect of drought on cotton genotypes parameters viz., plant height, monopodia, sympodia, dry matter production and seed cotton yield were recorded under field condition. In the investigations what could wondering possibility to maximum 137.33cm, 2.54 and 111.91g in TSH-324 and RHC-1217, plant height, monopodiaplant-1and dry matter production, while the minimum 79.66cm, 0.21 and 83.73g in JK-4, AR-9108 and L-799, noticed in the genotype. Apart from this, maximum number of sympodia plant-1(26.43) and seed cotton yield 1803.35 kg ha-1 recorded in the genotype JK-4 while the minimum number of sympodia per plant and seed cotton yield recorded in the genotype L-1384 that were 19.96 and 742.14 kg/ha respectively. The genotype JK-4 is statistically significant superior over rest genotypes. From this investigation, JK-4 genotype is suitable to cultivate in Malwa-Nimar region under drought condition in respect to seed cotton yield.

Molecular identity and clue regarding age of adult for field release of a native larval parasitoid of fall armyworm, Spodoptera frugiperda (Smith)

Paper ID- AMA-21-12-2022-11906

From Sabour location of Bhalpur, Bihar, India, more than 100 fall armyworm (FAW) caterpillars were collected from the maize field for the emergence of larval parasitoid/s at insect raring facility of Department of Entomology, BAU, Sabour during 2021 but no emerged out parasitoids were found from those. Consequent upon that, few FAW caterpillars were exposed to a pair of braconid wasps which were available with the Corcyra culture in the laboratory it was noticed that the exposed caterpillars were paralyzed and parasitized by the female of that braconid. The identity of the used pair at that time was not known. After observing the acceptance of FAW by those, the emerged out adults of the braconids were further used for its molecular characterization to know its identity which revealed that braconid wasp was actually Habrobracon hebetor Say. From the state of Bihar, this is the first report regarding native larval parasitoid associated with FAW. This larval parasitoid preferred mainly the thoracic sternum of FAW for deposition of eggs. Freshly emerged adults of H. hebetor were sexed and kept separately inside glass vials and were released inside a vial having full grown FAW caterpillars as per their age of 24 hous, 48 hours, 72 hours, 96 hours, 120 hours and 144 hours. Considering the parameters like number of eggs, larvae, cocoons and number of adult wasps as well as sex ratio, it is inferred that as the adults of H. hebetor at 96 hours after emergence produced maximum number of eggs, cocoons and total number of adults (that too having desirable sex ratio) in the laboratory condition, the release of H. hebetor adults in the field should be after 3 days of emergence for maximum suppression of FAW and ‘on filed multiplication’. However, this finding requires further validation by conducting such field experiments.

An experiment was conducted with ten different rice-based cropping systems T1 – Rice-rice-blackgram; T2 – Rice-rice-sesame; T3 – Dhaincha-rice+dhaincha(5:1)-blackgram; T4 – Sunn hemp-rice+dhaincha-greengram; T5 – Blackgram-rice-groundnut; T6 – Greengram-rice-sesame; T7 – Fodder cowpea-rice-fodder maize; T8 – Fodder sorghum-rice-fodder cowpea; T9 – Maize hybrid-rice-bhendi+blackgram; T10 – Ragi-rice-cluster bean+blackgram during different seasons (kharif, rabi and summer), 2021-2022 in the intensively cultivated sandy loam soils of Thanjavur district, Tamil Nadu, India. Samples were collected from different cropping systems in the experimental plot at post-harvest stage during kharif, rabi and summer seasons. Soil samples were examined and analysed for soil chemical properties in the Department of Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry, Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, India. Results from the study revealed that highest values of chemical properties like available N, P, K, Ca, Mg, Cu, Mn, Zn and Fe were recorded under T4-Sunn hemp-rice+dhaincha (10:1)-greengram system. Also better soil quality maintenance was observed in T4-Sunn hemp-rice+dhaincha (10:1)-greengram cropping system by recording the highest level of soil available nutrients due to the inclusion of green manure and pulse crops in rice-based cropping systems.
