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).

EFFECT OF INTER AND BORDER CROPS ON THE Helicoverpa armigera (HUBNER) INCIDENCE AND YIELD IN CHICKPEA

Paper ID- AMA-09-08-2023-12503

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.

RISK ASSESSMENT PLAN FOR HEAVY RAINFALL-INDUCED HAZARDS ON AGRICULTURE

Paper ID- AMA-09-08-2023-12502

Heavy rainfall is a natural phenomenon that has a significant impact on agriculture. It can cause severe damage to crops and pose a significant risk to agricultural activities. In order to mitigate the risks and minimize the damage caused by heavy rainfall, a risk assessment plan needs to be developed. The plan should include quantitative methods such as cause and effect analysis and risk element identification. Cause and effect analysis is an essential tool for identifying the factors that contribute to the risks associated with heavy rainfall-induced hazards on agriculture. This analysis helps to understand the root causes of the problem and identify the best solutions for mitigating risks. By examining the cause and effect relationships, it is possible to identify the most critical factors that contribute to the risks associated with heavy rainfall. Risk elements are another important aspect of developing a risk assessment plan for heavy rainfall-induced hazards on agriculture. These elements include both natural factors, such as soil type and slope, as well as human factors, such as farming practices and irrigation methods. By identifying these risk elements using ABC risk assessment quantitative method, it is possible to develop strategies for mitigating risks and minimizing damage to crops. Crops are one of the most significant areas of concern when it comes to heavy rainfall-induced hazards on agriculture. Heavy rainfall can cause soil erosion, nutrient loss, and other damages that can reduce crop yields significantly. By developing a risk assessment plan that takes into account the unique characteristics of each crop, it is possible to develop strategies for mitigating risks and minimizing damage. This could include using cover crops or changing planting patterns to reduce soil erosion or modifying irrigation practices to ensure crops receive adequate water without being damaged by floods.

Millet-A Brief Review on its's Insect pests and Their Management strategies in Idian Continent

Paper ID- AMA-08-08-2023-12500

Millets are known as the oldest nutri-cereals to human being. Millets are attacked both in field and storage conditions by more than a hundred insect pests out of which some are widespread in millet-growing regions. Incidence of the insect pests on millet is region as well as season specific. In Indian subcontinent, insects belonging to lepidoptera, coleopteran, diptera are more significantly abundant in millet growing areas as regular and sporadic pests. Among these, white grub, stem borers, shoot flies and some sucking insects are most significant at different growth stages of the crop. Also, incidences of armyworms, grasshoppers, chinch bugs, leaf beetles, head caterpillars, and head bugs are responsible for significant yield losses. During the rainy season, storage bugs are more common. There is a need for more in-depth research on the incidence and management of major insect pests of millet in relation to climate change. The management strategies vary depending on the agro ecosystem and the pest complex. However, a combination of cultural practices and resistant cultivars has proven effective. In order to minimise the usage of insecticides, which are frequently used in pest endemic areas and during outbreaks, an integrated approach to pest management in millets can be provided with a thorough study on insect pests of millets and reviewing all established management strategies and incorporating the interchange of genetic material and research data.
