Effect of Secondary Host on Santalum Album L. (Indian Sandalwood) Heartwood and Oil Content in Northern Transitional Agroclimatic Zone of Karnataka in Peninsular India

Paper ID- AMA-09-09-2023-12578

A Study conducted from 2018 to 2021 at the College of Forestry in Sirsi focused on the sandalwood tree (Santalum album L.) within Agroforestry systems in Karnataka. The primary objectives were to assess the impact of secondary host plants on heartwood development and to measure the oil content of sandalwood trees across various agroforestry systems in Karnataka's Belagavi district. The clear bole height of sandalwood trees exhibited a significant 26.82% increase when paired with Emblica officinalis, surpassing other host trees, including Grevillea robusta (14.28%), after eight years of plantation. In terms of heartwood content, the greatest enhancement, at 59.57%, occurred in sandalwood trees associated with Casuarina equisetifolia, followed by Sesbania grandiflora at 50.35% as host trees. Regarding oil content, there was a substantial 73.49% increase in sandalwood trees hosted by Casuarina equisetifolia, with Sesbania grandiflora showing a notable 65.07% increase. Significantly higher oil content was observed with Casuarina equisetifolia (0.83%), similar to Sesbania grandiflora (0.63%), and ahead of Cocus nucifera (0.57%).

An experiment was conducted to estimate yield and quality of Agrifound Dark Red onion grown on raised bed and flat bed condition during off-season production (summer, monsoon and post monsoon season). There were nine date of transplanting (1st day of April, May, June, July, August, September, October, November and December) and two growing conditions (raised bed and flat bed) which were laid out in factorial randomized block design (two factors) with three replications. Tabulation of two years data showed a significant variation in bulb yield and quality of onion due to transplanting in different dates as well as field condition. Transplanting on 1st October showed maximum bulb yield and morphological qualities in terms of length of bulb, dry matter content, polar diameter, equatorial diameter, volume of bulb, specific gravity, number of scale/bulb. Among the two conditions, raised bed showed better performance in respect of yield and bulb quality in year round production. Therefore, it may be concluded that transplanted during 1st October on raised bed combination for profitable production of onion Agrifound Dark Red at Lucknow region to address the seasonal gap between market demand and production.

Electronic National Agriculture Market (e-NAM): A Review of the game changing Marketing Platform

Paper ID- AMA-06-09-2023-12573

The marketing of agricultural produce plays a crucial role in connecting the farm sector with the broader economy, and efficient marketing systems offer numerous benefits. The paper discusses the background and current status of e-NAM, which aims to integrate all agricultural markets in India and establish a unified national market for commodities. It explores the challenges faced in implementing e-NAM and provides insights into its functioning in different states. The paper also proposes future research directions, strategies and policy recommendations to strengthen e-NAM, including infrastructure development, awareness campaigns, and dispute resolution mechanisms. The conclusion emphasizes the need for immediate actions to enhance stakeholders' understanding, build trust, and provide necessary infrastructure for the successful implementation and adoption of e-NAM.

Study on the Effect of Organic and Inorganic Fertilizer with Biofertilizer on Crop Growth and Yield Attributing Performance of Sprouting Broccoli under Central Uttar Pradesh Condition

Paper ID- AMA-02-09-2023-12565

A field experiment was conducted during the Rabi season 2018–2019 and 2019–2020 at Vegetable Research Farm, Department of Vegetable Science, Chandra Shekhar Azad University of Agriculture and Technology, Kanpur Uttar Pradesh 208002, India. It comprised twelve treatment levels of fertilizer in a randomized block-design with three replications. The growth parameters of the sprouting broccoli crop were significantly affected by the fertilizer treatments. Maximum plants height viz. (28.19 cm, 49.39 cm, and 51.19 cm), number of leaves per plant (9.48, 16.81 and 18.84), length of leaf (9.55 cm, 47.54 cm, and 48.93 cm), the width of a leaf (5.99 cm, 21.61 cm, and 24.09 cm) and maximum plant spread (37.30 cm, 59.78 cm, and 69.13 cm) respectively at 30, 60 days after transplanting and at harvesting stage were observed in treatment (T8):-Vermicompost @ 5 tons/ha + Azotobacter @ 2 kg /hectare and minimum value were under control conditions (T0). Yield and yield contributing characters like days taken to first head initiation (51.15 days), days taken to 50% head initiation (55.16 days), days taken to head maturity (72.11 days), stalk diameter (3.52 cm), stalk length (21.39 cm), head diameter (12.62 cm), head length (7.25 cm), head width (12.89 cm), weight of head with jacket leaves (1283.20 g), weight of head without jacket leaves (510.88 g), (%) loss of head weight (g) stored at room temperature (6.44%), marketable yield (6.21 kg/plot) and head yield (186.99 q/haetc. were highest in treatment (T8): Vermicompost @ 5 tons/ha + Azotobacter@2 kg / hectare.

Influence of Passive and Static Composting Methods on Microbial Profiles of Compost from Caged Layer Manure With Biochar and Coconut Coir Pith Waste as Co-Composting Materials

Paper ID- AMA-01-09-2023-12564

This experiment aimed to assess the microbial changes in composting caged layer manure (CLM) using passive and static aeration, incorporating biochar and coconut coir pith waste (CCP). This study was conducted at the Livestock Farm Complex, Veterinary College and Research Institute, Namakkal, India, across summer and monsoon seasons, compost piles were formulated based on specific C:N ratios. CLM was blended with carbon-rich materials, and samples were collected at start and end of the the composting process. This study revealed significant reductions (P ≤ 0.05) in total bacterial and total Coliform counts at the end of composting period. This environmentally safe approach highlights composting's efficacy in converting organic waste, like CLM, into beneficial organic fertilizer, emphasizing its potential for sustainable waste management.
