ANALYSIS OF THE SOCIO-ECONOMIC AND PSYCHOLOGICAL PROFILE OF RURAL YOUTH OF BARGARH DISTRICT OF ODISHA

Paper ID- AMA-19-09-2023-12604

In the academic year 2018–19, the study was carried out in the Bargarh district of the state of Odisha. 120 respondents in total were chosen for the investigation's purposes. The socioeconomic and psychological profiles of the respondents were analysed using descriptive statistics (mean, frequency distribution), and they were ranked as a result. In terms of socioeconomic profile, data collected on education showed that the majority (40%) of respondents had only completed high school, the majority (71.66%) were married, the majority (65.00%) had no membership in any organisations, and the majority (100.00%) of respondents received information about agri-related activities from friends, neighbours, relatives, and farmer friends. The majority (60.00%) had no membership in any organisations. According to the respondents' psychological profiles, the majority of respondents (mean score=1.93) preferred to increase their income through crop production, the majority of respondents (mean score=1.82) had psychology to choose agriculture farming as a career, and the majority of respondents (mean score=1.77) preferred agriculture labours. The socioeconomic profile of a person's education, scientific attitude, and preference for agricultural work among rural adolescents are all highly relevant factors. The youth's adoption of cutting-edge technology will be facilitated by need-based, problem-oriented, and location-specific technologies. Young people in rural areas need to be given the skills necessary to use cutting-edge technologies, which will increase their income and standard of living.

Review of research work on the application of remote sensing to agriculture for the Tunisian semi-arid case

Paper ID- AMA-18-09-2023-12602

This meta-analysis discuss the underutilization of remote sensing technology in Tunisia's agricultural sector, attributed to a lack of expertise among stakeholders. To address this, the authors have created an article to guide stakeholders on how to leverage remote sensing for various applications including soil texture estimation, drought monitoring, and crop yield prediction, among others. The article, described as the first of its kind focused on Tunisia, aims to elucidate the methods and benefits of remote sensing in agriculture, detailing satellite sensors and vegetation indices utilized in this technology. It intends to function as a foundational resource for stakeholders to embark on informed applications of remote sensing in agriculture.

Production and potential of millets in achieving sustainable development goals (SDGs): a review

Paper ID- AMA-18-09-2023-12601

Recognizing the significance of millets in achieving the sustainable development goals (SDGs), the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) declared 2023 the “International Year of Millets”. India is the leading producer of millets or “Nutri-cereals” or “Shree Anna” and contributes around 40% of global millet production. However, state-wise significant variability is seen in the yield across the country. There can be many factors contributing to this variability which could be studied further. Qualities like short maturity time thus less affected by weather and can act as catch crops between main crops, pest resistance thus minimal input cost, ability to thrive under harsh and diverse agro-climatic conditions along with increasing awareness about health provide ample opportunity for popularization of these crops. The nutritive value of millets is far better than rice and wheat and thus provides a healthy option for persons with various health issues. With the rapidly changing agro-climate, these naturally stress-resistant plants (NSRPs) can also present an excellent gene pool for establishing other crops accordingly. Processing and preservation techniques to be further refined for round-the-year demand and supply of the millets. Overall, millets provide an excellent opportunity to reshape India’s nutritional and economic security of farmers.

STUDIES ON GENETIC VARIABILITY PARAMETERS FOR ELEVEN AGRO-MORPHOLOGICAL TRAITS OF BLACKGRAM (Vigna mungo L.)

Paper ID- AMA-14-09-2023-12597

A study on genetic variability, heritability and genetic advance as percentage of mean was carried out for thirty blackgram genotypes grown in Complete Randomised Block Design (CRBD) with three replications and two rows of each genotype in each replication to determine genetic divergence among the thirty genotypes for eleven agro-morphological traits of blackgram in the rainfed condition of U.T. of J&K during kharif 2021. Understanding genetic diversity among the thirty blackgram genotypes is the backbone of the blackgram improvement breeding programme. Analysis of variance described significant variability among the genotypes for all eleven agro-morphological traits under this study. This indicates a wide range of genetic variability present in the genotypes of the blackgram. The genotypic coefficient of variation (G.C.V.) and phenotypic coefficient of variation (PCV) were high for number of clusters per plant, pod length, number of pods per cluster and number of branches per plant. High heritability along with high genetic advance as percentage of mean (G.A.M.) was observed for the traits viz., plant height, number of clusters per plant, number of branches per plant, seed yield per plant, number of pods per cluster, pod length and number of seeds per pod. Hence, phenotypic selection based on high heritability along with high genetic advance indicating the presence of additive gene action and phenotypic selection for such traits may be helpful in future blackgram improvement programmes.

Antioxidant profile of oviductal fluid from Tarai Buffaloes

Paper ID- AMA-14-09-2023-12594

A study was under taken to find out the antioxidant levels in oviductal secretion of buffaloes reared under tropical climatic conditions. Oviducts, along with ovaries, of apparently healthy buffaloes were obtained from slaughter house. The stage of estrous cycle was determined as either luteal or non-luteal based on the ovarian structures. The oviduct was dissected into isthmus and ampulla and fluid was collected from both the regions by compressing with glass slides. The extract was centrifuged at 3000 rpm for 30 min and the supernatant was centrifuged again at 6000 rpm for 30 min and the supernatant was collected. The samples were analyzed for total protein, super oxide dismutase (SOD), catalase and reduced glutathione. The total protein concentration in oviductal fluid was lower during the luteal phase compared to non-luteal phase of the oestrous cycle. Significantly (P<0.05) higher concentration of proteins was observed in ampullary fluid than the isthmic fluid irrespective of the phase of oestrous cycle. There was no significant difference in SOD concentrations between isthmic and ampullary oviductal fluids. The non-luteal isthmic fluid showed higher activity of catalase and reduced glutathine compared to other groups. It was inferred antioxidant concentrations in oviductal fluid showed significant variations with both the stage of oestrous cycle and the region of oviduct.
