“Screening of Garlic [Allium sativum (L.)] genotypes Growth, Yield and Quality Attributes in Malwa Region”

Paper ID- AMA-21-10-2023-12670

The mentioned experiment was conducted in rabi season of 2021-22 and 2022-23. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design (RBD) with three replications. All the genotypes were randomized separately in each replication. The experiment comprised of fifteen genotypes consisting Sehore selection-1, Sehore selection-3, Amletha, Ashta-2, G-282, Malkapuri, G-189, G-384, G-323, G-2, Ichawar-5, Ashta-3, Ujjain-4, Ujjain-7, Raipura-8. During screening of different genotypes for growth parameters of the garlic genotypes, the genotype T3 (Amletha) performed very well under Malwa climate and the same trends were also reported for yield parameters at different growth stages. During the evaluation of the quality parameter like colour the various colour were recorded in different genotypes. The colour of the superior genotype Amltha is perfect white with have good market compatible.

Effect of co-supplementation of nicotine and green-nanocolloid on the gene expression levels of buffalo oocytes during in-vitro maturation

Paper ID- AMA-20-10-2023-12668

Nicotine, a potent toxicant in cigarette smoke, adversely affects various stages of female reproductive function by acting as a pro-oxidant, increasing the generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS). Plant-derived antioxidants, known for their exceptional free radical-scavenging abilities, were the focus of this study. The primary objective was to explore the antioxidant effects of green-synthesized silver nanoparticles, termed Green nanocolloid-CcAgNps, on in vitro cultured buffalo oocytes, with the goal of mitigating nicotine’s impact. The assessment relied on the maturation rate of oocytes and the quantitative RT-PCR analysis of genes associated with antioxidant enzymes (SOD1 and GPX4), anti-apoptotic factors (BCL2) and fertility-related genes (GDF-9). Results showed a significantly higher maturation rate of oocytes cultured in a medium containing both nicotine and green nanocolloid than those exposed to nicotine alone. Moreover, GPX4 expression markedly increased in the nicotine with green nanocolloid group compared to the control group. Nicotine in the maturation medium led to a substantial upregulation of BCL2 and GDF-9 gene expression, while the addition of green nanocolloid alongside nicotine resulted in a significant downregulation of RNA expression. This indicates that the presence of green nanocolloid reduces the damage caused by nicotine and the study suggests that oocyte maturation rates improve without reliance on an enzymatic antioxidant system. This improvement is likely due to the potent free-radical scavenging capacity of silver nanoparticles capped with Cymbopogon citratus.

Exodus of Labour from Rural Agriculture and its Impact on the Rural Land: Analyses of Panel Data from Sichuan Province

Paper ID- AMA-17-10-2023-12665

The transition of labour from rural to urban regions is an effective indicator of rural land transfer in China. This paper employs a sample of panel data of fixed observation points in rural areas of Sichuan Province from 2003 to 2014 and uses a multiple linear regression model to analyse the impact of non-agricultural employment on rural land transfer. The findings here indicate that the total supply of the rural labour force in the Sichuan province of China decreased yearly. On the other hand, the rural labour force engaged in Rural Non-Agricultural (RNA) activities was rising. Then, most of those working in the RNA sector are young (below 25 years of age) and middle-aged (between 35 and 55 years of age), which made the rural labour force engaged in agricultural activities decrease over the years and gradually turn “senior citizens”. At the same time, the rural land in Sichuan province is incredibly fragmented and decentralised; 79.8% of the land area is less than one mu (one mu = 667 m2). The empirical analyses indicate that proportionately, fewer of those engaged in RNA sector activities transfer less rural land than those involved in the agricultural sector activities. This research can promote the transfer of the rural labour force and optimise the allocation of land resources, which is the inevitable requirement of agricultural and rural modernisation in the new era and has vital theoretical and policy significance.

Incorporation of buffalo epididymal proteins in semen extender improves sperm freezability and post-thaw semen quality in crossbred bulls

Paper ID- AMA-15-10-2023-12662

Poor freezability and post-thaw sperm quality is one of the major problems in crossbred cattle limiting the success of artificial insemination and genetic improvement under field conditions. In an attempt to improve the freezability and post-thaw semen quality, the current study was undertaken to assess the effects of buffalo epididymal proteins on crossbred bull spermatozoa during cryopreservation. A preliminary study was conducted to select a suitable dose of epididymal proteins. The epididymal proteins (whole epididymal, caput, corpus and cauda epididymal proteins) were incorporated in the semen extender at 1mg/mL of the extended semen (concentration selected based on the results of preliminary study). In the control group no proteins were incorporated. A total of 36 ejaculates from six number of crossbred bulls were utilised in the study and before (pre-freeze stage) and after (after thawing) cryopreservation sperm quality was assessed. Significantly higher pre-freeze and post-thaw sperm motility, viability and acrosomal integrity was observed in whole epididymal protein added group in comparison to other epididymal protein added groups and control group. The sperm penetration distance and membrane integrity were greater in both cauda epididymal protein and whole epididymal proteins added group in comparison to rest of epididymal protein added groups and control. In pre-freeze and post-thaw stage, among the whole and cauda epididymal proteins added group revealed a significantly lower level of MDA production as compared to caput and corpus epididymal proteins added groups and control group. Collectively, the findings of the current study indicate that the buffalo epididymal proteins offer protection to cattle spermatozoa during equilibration and during ultralow temperature cryopreservation.

Comparison of Innovation Ability, Patents, Agricultural Machinery Enterprises in Jiangsu Province of China

Paper ID- AMA-15-10-2023-12661

Jiangsu is a large agricultural province and grain-producing province in China. Agricultural machinery enterprises in Jiangsu are the main body of scientific and technological innovation of agricultural mechanization in the province. There is a close intrinsic connection between technological innovation and patent. This paper takes patents as a perspective to conduct a comparative study on the innovation ability of agricultural machinery enterprises in Jiangsu. The study shows that the patents of Jiangsu agricultural machinery enterprises are mainly utility model, of which the proportion of utility model patents is 79.93%. The vast majority of enterprises rely on their own technical force to carry out product and technology innovation, and about 1/4 of them have applied for patent cooperation with universities and institutes. There are 88.6% of enterprises did not apply for international patents. The difference in innovation power of enterprises in the first, second, third and fourth echelons is obvious.
