Comparative Evaluation of Epiphytic Yeast for the Management of Fruit Rot of Chilli under Field and Pot Conditions

Paper ID- AMA-30-08-2023-12560

A total of 160 epiphytic yeast strains associated with various genotypes of chilli (Capsicum spp.) cultivated in Meghalaya, India, were isolated and subjected to assessment for their antagonistic potential against a pathogenic strain of Colletotrichum truncatum, causal agent of fruit rot in chilli. Notable variations were observed in the inhibition of mycelial growth of the pathogen through a dual culture assay, with mean inhibition per cent ranging from 31.55% to 64.81%.Four distinct yeast isolates, namely YE12 (identified as Saturnispora sylvae), YE46 (identified as Meyerozyma guilliermondii), YE64 (identified as Rhodotorula paludigena), and YE127 (also identified as Meyerozyma guilliermondii), were chosen for subsequent evaluation in controlled pot experiments as well as under field conditions. Notably, the synergistic application of these efficient yeast isolates exhibited superior outcomes compared to their individual applications. Among all the single and combined treatments, the consortium comprising the four yeast isolates, i.e., YE17+YE46+YE64+YE127, demonstrated the highest reduction in disease incidence, with a substantial decrease of 77.85% in the pot experiment and 64.57% reduction in the field experiment, respectively. Furthermore, the treatment involving the combination of Saturnispora silvae, Meyerozyma guilliermondii, Rhodotorula paludigena, and Meyerozyma guilliermondii exhibited notable improvements in both plant health and yield attributes across both experimental conditions.

Optimization and Formulation of Gluten-free Bread using RSM (Design Expert) to study its Textural and Sensory Properties

Paper ID- AMA-30-08-2023-12559

The urgent need for gluten-free bread by Celiac and gluten-sensitive populations has spawned a new and emerging food industry to provide substitutes for gluten-free bread. This study aims to provide an effective substitute bread using locally available indigenous crops like Jackfruit Seed and Flour (Artocarpus heterophyllus Lam) and Mapillai Samba Rice Flour (Bridegroom Oryza sativa L) as the key ingredients. Central Composite Rotatable Design (CCRD) of Response Surface Methodology (RSM) was applied to study the overall comparative acceptability of the gluten-free bread. Gluten-free bread was prepared using 20 variations of composite flour without gluten by varying the proportions of these three major ingredients. The best combination of the three major ingredients for the production of gluten-free bread was determined by studying the textural properties (hardness and springiness), loaf volume, colour value and sensory quality. Such a viable and desirable product will have commercial implications.

“Effect of organic manures on yield, quality and uptake of chickpea”

Paper ID- AMA-30-08-2023-12556

A two-year field study was carried out at the IFSRP, Rahuri on a clay loam soil to evaluate the effects of an organic farming package for a kharif onion-based cropping system on yield, quality, and chickpea uptake. In comparison to the other treatments, the residual effect of 50% N through FYM + 50% N through vermicompost and the direct effect of 100% N through organic resulted in considerably greater yield, quality, and nutrient uptake in chickpea.

Cheese is replacing the proportion of conventional dairy products in urban and semi-urban areas, owing to its health advantages, usage, longer shelf life, and so on. Cheddar cheese is a popular cheese because of its strong flavour and usage in a variety of culinary recipes. Accelerated cheese ripening is one of the scientific ways for reducing ripening time without compromising quality, which might be of significant commercial importance. In terms of flavour and ripening, cheddar cheese made from the indigenous Sahiwal cow breed was comparable to that made from the Nili Ravi buffalo breed. The texture of buffalo milk cheddar cheese, on the other hand, was relatively firm. Both cheeses were equivalent in terms of yield and physico-chemical characteristics. The inclusion of adjunct culture, which is typical of cheddar cheese in both types of milk, enhanced the flavour, body &texture, and mouth feel. The physicochemical and microbiological parameters remained within the FSSAI guidelines throughout the experiments.

Effect of Zero tillage potato in yield and managing climate change in Begusarai

Paper ID- AMA-29-08-2023-12554

Zero tillage potato is increasing attention for cropping system intensification in the India. Zero tillage potato with the use of rice straw mulch reduces the worst effects of climate change, soil salinity, and increases productivity with minimum input. A trail was conducted at Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Begusarai, Bihar during Rabi 2022-23 just after harvesting of paddy. The trail comprised two treatments viz., Zero tillage potato method and Conventional method with three replications. The variety used for both the treatments was Kufri Bahar. Trail result shows that the highest yield of potato was obtained in zero tillage method (236.50± 7.91 q/ha) as compared to the conventional method (201.0±2.13 q/ha) that was 17.66% more. The benefit cost ratio was highest in zero tillage i.e. 2.4, which was 41.17% higher than the conventional method. In an economic view, the result of study showed zero tillage method is cost effective compared to conventional method, it is saving money in irrigation, weeding, field preparation etc. Zero tillage method improves the tuber formation and reduces the chances of early blight as well as late blight disease because of no tillage and mulching compared to the conventional method.
