Identification and detail description of phenological growth stages of wood apple (Feronia limonia L.) under rainfed conditions of India

Paper ID- AMA-14-08-2023-12512

An acquaintance about the phenology of cultivated crop is required for its proper management. Phenology reveals the timing of recurring biological events like bud break, flushing, flowering and fruiting. Therefore, a study was conducted to find out various phenological stages of wood apple under hot semi-arid condition during 2016 and 2017 at Central Horticultural Experiment Station (ICAR-CIAH), Vejalpur, Gujarat. Based on the extended BBCH-scale, three digit codes were used in this study to know the growth stages of the wood apple tree. In present study, seven principle growth stages were observed in terms of code like 0) bud, 1) leaf, 3) shoot development, 5) inflorescence emergence, 6) flowering, 7) fruit development, and 8) fruit maturity. The swellen axillary buds require 7-8 weeks for full shoot development and vegetative growth usually complete in 18-22 weeks. The peak flowering period was observed between mid March to mid April and lasts about 2-5 weeks. Wood apple fruit showed double sigmoid growth pattern and took about 20-22 weeks from fruit set to maturity. It has been observed that the days required 18-20 from bud swelling to complete anthesis for reproductive cycle. This study will be very useful to carryout various agro-cultural practices to enhance the production and productivity of wood apple under field condition based on the physiological events.

Study of heritability and genetic advance for the selection of improved genotype based on quantitative and quality characters in bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)

Paper ID- AMA-14-08-2023-12511

The aim of the present study is to develop new and improved wheat varieties with the help of heritability and genetic advance. In order to fulfill the aim of this study, a field experiment was conducted at C.S. Azad University of Agriculture and Technology, Kanpur. The high estimates of heritability were observed for days to maturity, plant height, number of productive tillers per plant, number of grains per spike, 1000-grain weight (g), grain yield per plant (g), harvest index (%), and protein content (%) in both F1 and F2 generations. In most of the characters, high heritability was accompanied with moderate genetic advance. Moderate value of heritability was recorded for biological yield per plant in both generations; days to 75% heading and number of spikelets per spike was in F2 generation, mostly accompanied with low genetic advance. The low heritability was observed for spike length in F2 generation which was also accompanied with low genetic advance in both generations.

Comparative Histochemical Studies on Lungs of Aseel and Vanaraja Breeds of Poultry

Paper ID- AMA-12-08-2023-12509

Lungs of 28 birds of Assel and Vanaraja breeds of poultry were studied for Histochemical studies by dividing them in to two groups (Grower and Adult). Lung’s were comprises of bronchial system and lobules and lobules were separated by interlobular septae. Collagen, elastic and reticular fibers were studied in histological slide of lungs with special stain. Lung tissues of both groups were compared for PAS and AB-PAS positivity. This was more distinct in Aseel than Vanaraja breeds of poultry in all the parts of lungs in both adult and grower groups. Epithelium and muscle tissue of the lungs shows moderate to intense PAS positivity in both adult and grower groups. It was slightly more intense in Aseel breed in both the age group.

Physico-chemical and Microbiological Analysis of Brown Rice Based Instant Porridge Mix during Ambient Storage

Paper ID- AMA-10-08-2023-12506

In developing nations, malnutrition is a serious nutritional problem. This primarily occurs as a result of inadequate nutritional intake and utilization. Therefore, our objective was to develop healthy instant porridge from locally available sources with improved nutritional value. Brown rice grits, pumpkin powder and germinated mungbean grits, were blended in the ratios of T1 (100:00:00:: Brown rice grits (BRG): Pumpkin powder (PP): Germinated mungbean grits (GMG), T2 (85:05:10:: BRG: PP: GMG), T3 (80:10:10:: BRG: PP: GMG), T4 (75:15:10:: BRG: PP: GMG), T5 (70:20:10:: BRG: PP: GMG), T6 (65:25:10:: BRG: PP: GMG) and T7 (60:30:10:: BRG: PP: GMG). The formulated porridge mix was packed in laminate pouches and its storability was studied for 90 days under ambient conditions. The physio-chemical analysis of instant porridge mix revealed that maximum mean L* value of 61.20, a* value of 5.33 and b* value of 28.52, moisture (5.68%), crude fibre (2.07%), ash (2.74%), β-carotene (302.19 µg/g) were recorded in T7 whereas, T1 recorded highest water activity (0.58), crude fat (2.07%), carbohydrates (81.43%). Highest mean crude protein (12.64%) was recorded in T2. Sensory evaluation revealed that T5 recorded highest mean overall acceptability (7.80).

The field experiment conducted during Rabi 2020-21(November 2020 to April 2021) to check the chickpea pod borer infestation in response to various inter and border crops at the research farm of Advanced Centre for Rainfed Agriculture (ACRA), Dhiansar, SKUAST-Jammu. The results revealed significantly lowest population of H. armigera in chickpea + linseed (intercrop) + napier (border crop) (0.27 to 4.67 larvae per meter row length) during 9th to 14th standard week respectively, followed by chickpea + linseed (intercrop) + mustard border crop) compare to sole chickpea. Where lowest pod damage per cent was recorded in chickpea + linseed (intercrop) + napier (border crop) with 11.84 per cent, followed by chickpea + linseed (intercrop) + mustard (border crop) and chickpea + coriander (intercrop) + napier (border crop) with 13.30 and 16.06 per cent damage, respectively. The study concluded that the highest chickpea yield and equivalent yield was calculated in T7 - Chickpea + linseed (intercrop) + mustard (border crop) 539.6 kg/ha and 1311.66 kg/ha respectively, with the highest B:C ratio of 1:5.47.
