A softshell turtle was presented with a history of vehicular collision. Clinical examination revealed shell fracture in the carapace as well as hind limb paralysis. Turtle was bright and alert and its excretory system was also functional. External fixation was done using the adhesives to fix the carapace. As the turtle was trying to move with its fore limbs hence it was decided to place the prosthesis to support its hind body and further movement. Supportive medicines and physiotherapy were also given to revive the normal functions. In this case, internal organs were not injured which made the turtle to survive the trauma. The practice of prosthesis is common in mammals but we tried the same in the reptile which proved to be successful.

Bio-pesticide or Biological pesticides are derived from natural materials such as animals, plants, bacteria, and certain minerals. It is less toxic and reduces the pollution problems caused by conventional pesticides. The present study studied biochemical changes in cow urine and dung-based six (T1, T2, T3, T4, T5 and T6) different bio-pesticide formulations and their efficacy on cattle tick control. The results revealed that N2, CP, Urea, Uric acid, hippuric acid and creatinine increased significantly over fermentation. In tick control, results revealed highest tick mortality (%) in T6 (53.25±0.96) as compared to T5 (46.08±0.96), T4(42.26±0.96), T3(33.44±0.96), T2(28.41±0.96) and T1(22.77±0.96), respectively. However, the cow urine and dung-based formulations had a significantly (P<0.01) higher effect on tick mortality (42.54±0.51%) as compared to heifers urine and dung-based formulations.

Effect of supplementation of different Organic Trace Minerals on Production Performance, Immune Response, Carcass characteristics and Cost Economics of Commercial Broilers

Paper ID- AMA-27-04-2023-12223

An experiment was conducted to investigate the comparative performance of commercial broilers fed KemTrace (mineral propionate) with other organic minerals. The feeding trial was conducted for a period of six weeks with 672 chicks allotted to seven experimental groups each with 12 replicates and each replicate consisting of 8 birds in a completely randomized design. The diets of the treatments were : T1-Basal diet with Blend A (Inorganic- sulphates, oxides and carbonates) @1000gm/mt; T2-Basal diet with Blend B (Proteinates) @500 gm/mt. ; T3- basal diet with Blend C (Propionates with antioxidants)@250 gm/mt.; T4- Basal diet with blend D (same as T3 but produced in different process) @350 gm/mt.: T5-Basal diet with Blend E (Propionates, Fumarates with antioxidant) @250gm/mt.: T6-Basal diet with Blend F (Propionates, Fumarates with antioxidant) @500 gm/mt.; T-7 Basal diet with blend G (Butyrates, Propionate, Fumarates with antioxidants) @500 gm/mt of feed. Parameters like growth performance, carcass yield, immune status and trace mineral retention in organs were observed in the broilers. The collected data were analysed using SPSS software Programme version 17.0 and interpreted. The commercial broilers supplemented with metal propionate form of organic mineral performed better than other organic mineral supplementations on growth performance and immune response. Metal propionate form of organic mineral supplemented broilers also showed significantly higher performance on carcass quality and cost economics than other organic mineral supplementations.

Digital Technology, arable land and Sustainable Food Security in Africa

Paper ID- AMA-26-04-2023-12222

This study examined the influence of arable land and digital technology on sustainable food security in Africa. The study engaged panel data for 51 countries sourced from the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) and World Development Indicators (WDI) for the period 2005 to 2020. The study applied the Generalised Method of Moments (GMM) and the result showed that arable land and digital technology positively and significantly influenced food security in Africa. It showed that a 1% increase in arable land led to an increase in food security in Africa by 22.23%. On the other hand, a 1% increase in digital technology led to an increase in food security by 4.7%. With digital technology, farmers and others may interact with institutions and information that link farmers to the markets and reduce risk and uncertainties. The study concluded that access might encourage large-scale farming capable of promoting sustainable agriculture and rural development. This may directly benefit local communities and smallholder farmers. In addition, access to technological tools will link farmers to the market and connect actors along all nods of the agricultural value chain for improved food security.

Identification of volatile compounds present in Moringa and Chekkurmanis Soup Cubes

Paper ID- AMA-26-04-2023-12220

This investigative study reports the identification of the chemical components present in the Moringa and Chekkurmanis leaf powder and Soup cube extracts using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS). Many of the components in soup cubes are essential micronutrients which can boost the immune system and act as a proper human nutrition. The main phytochemicals identified in Moringa and Chekkurmkanis leaf powder extracts were 1,3-Propanediol, 2-(hydroxymethyl)-2-nitro-, (50.23%), 9,12,15-Octadecatrienoic acid, (Z,Z,Z)-, (13.25%) and 9,12,15-Octadecatrienoic acid, (Z,Z,Z)-, (22.41%), Phytol, (12.57%), Squalene, (11.30%) respectively. The main phytochemicals identified in Moringa and Chekkurmkanis soup cube extracts were 24-Norursa-3,12-diene (21.72%), 24-Noroleana-3,12-diene (19.15%) and Piperine (20.53), 5-Hydroxymethylfurfural (17.61%) 9,12,15-Octadecatrienoic acid, (Z,Z,Z)- (6.315%) respectively. .The study confirmed that the compounds present in the soup cubes has high bioactivities of Antibacterial, Anticancer and antioxidant activities.
