Biological Activity of Some Plant Extracts Against Callosobruchus maculatus (F.(

Paper ID- AMA-11-09-2022-11669

Acacia farnesiana, Platychladus [Thuja] orientalis Endl, Swietenia mahogoni (Linn) Jaq and Pancratium maritimum are four plants growing in Egypt. Hexane and ethanol had been used to extract oils from tested plants. Leaves and seeds were used from A. farnesiana, and P. [Thuja] orientalis Endl and leaves from S. mahogoni (Linn) Jaq while bulbs were used from Pancratium maritimum. All extracted oils were evaluated on Callosobruchus maculatus (F.) biology. Plant oil extracted from Cassia seeds with ethanol had the strongest effect and decreased hatching to 0.5% with concentration of 5 grams crude extract/kilo gram seed and also had the strongest reduction with 100% reduction with the same concentration. All tested extracted oils had an effect against F1 progeny and after storage cassia leaves had the weakest effect and the extract had no effect on biology after two months of treatment. All tested extracted had a negative effect on seed germination and Arbor-vitae leaves had the most negative effect on cowpeas seeds with 75% germination.

Agricultural Sector: Status, Challenges and its Role in Indian Economy

Paper ID- AMA-10-09-2022-11668

In this study, we use a simple regression analysis to explore the relationship between agricultural inputs and agricultural GDP in the Indian economy from 1980–1981 to 2011-2021. The agricultural gross domestic product serves as the dependent variable, while fertilizers, net irrigated area, pesticides, electricity, rainfall, and the use of high yield varieties of seeds serve as the independent factors. Statistical analysis shows that factors influencing agricultural GDP from 1980–1981 to 2011-2021, such as fertilizers and net irrigated area, have little to no effect. Further, the study finds that variables including pesticides, electricity, rainfall, and seeds are statistically significant, leading researchers to conclude that they all had a major impact on agricultural GDP within the time frame under consideration. The authors argue that the government can influence the agricultural sector in two ways: by regulating inputs and by influencing outputs. The report emphasizes the need of revitalizing public sector investment because of its multiplier effect on the sector's total GCF. As a result, it is important to develop a long-term perspective strategy for rural infrastructure that prioritizes the most effective infrastructure projects.

Physical properties of Toy making species Givotia rottleriformis Griff.

Paper ID- AMA-07-09-2022-11663

The diminishing resources of Givotia rottleriformis in natural forest due to its excessive felling and natural poor regeneration. Since the wooden artisans are unable to meet the adequate amount of Poniki wood in toy manufacturing industries. The current study attempted to evaluate the physical properties of Givotia rottleriformis wood such as density, moisture content, water absorption, volumetric swelling and volumetric shrinkage as per IS:1708(1986) and comparison with other wood species like Bombax ceiba, Artocarpus hirsutus, Pterocarpus santalinus, Abies pindrow and Pinus roxburghii. It was found that Bombax ceiba has showed the similar wood physical properties such as density, water absorption, volumetric shrinkage and volumetric swelling apart from other wood species. Based on physical properties hence, it asserted that the Bombax ceiba wood can be suggested as alternate species used for toy making and can fulfil the deficit needs of wooden artisans.

Pharmaceutical and Nutraceutical values of fruit crops for human health: An overview

Paper ID- AMA-07-09-2022-11662

Fruit contain various beneficial compounds that have biological activities and can be used as a source of pharmaceutical and nutraceutical products. Most fruit included in this review contain polyphenolic components that can promote antioxidant effects on human health. Additionally, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, anti-fungal and chemo preventive effects are associated with these fruit. Other chemicals such as anthocyanins, xanthones, carotenoids, and saponins, in addition to polyphenolics, have health benefits and can be used as nutraceutical and pharmaceutical components. In this review, information on different fruits is presented and discussed with regard to their biological activity of the major com-pounds existing in them. It can be concluded that although fruits are useful sources of nutraceutical and other pharmaceutical components. Fruit consumption is primarily intended to meet certain nutri-tional and catalytic requirements, whilst other dietary categories are intended to meet energetic re-quirements.

Isolation and characterization of lactic acid bacteria from ethnic fermented sour beverages (neeragaram) using traditional red rice varieties

Paper ID- AMA-02-09-2022-11656

Neeragaram (fermented sour beverage) is a traditional energy drink of Tamil Nadu and is considered to contain a variety of beneficial bacterial species. The purpose of this study was to isolate and identify bacteria from samples of ethnic fermented sour beverages, particularly lactobacillus species. The red rice varieties of Tamil Nadu have been chosen for developing the beverages. The samples were ADT 43 as control beverage, mapillai samba as treatment 1 and karungkuruvai as treatment 2 for developing fermented sour beverages. Three bacterial isolates, Isolate 1, Isolate 2 and Isolate 3 were isolated from fermented sour beverages and identified using morphological and biochemical assays. The two isolates were gram-positive, non-motile, round-shaped bacteria. The isolated bacteria were examined with multiple media including Mannitol Salt Agar, MacConkey Agar, EMB Agar, TSI Agar, Simmons Citrate Agar, Urea Agar, BSA, and Starch Agar with Catalase assay for biochemical characterization. Both morphologically and biochemically, the isolates have been identified as Leuconostoc mesenteriodes. By using the disc diffusion method as well as twelve different antibiotics, the isolates were further evaluated for their antibiotic sensitivity. Three of the antibiotics aztreonam, ampicillin and penicillin were all resistant to the isolated bacteria, whereas four of the drugs imipenem, ciprofloxacin, rifampicin and doxycycline were all susceptible. According to this study, it can be concluded that Leuconostoc mesenteriodes could be found in the ethnic fermented sour beverages which acts as a probiotic source to heal many stomach-related disorders.
