Performance of Major Seed spice crops in Rajasthan during Pre and post-Agri Export Zone periods: In context of Growth, Instability and Decomposition analysis

Paper ID- AMA-15-02-2022-11137

Present study was conducted to investigate the growth, instability and decomposition analysis in area, production, and productivity of major seed spice crops in Rajasthan. This study was entirely based on secondary data and the study period was divided into three sub-periods: pre-Agri Export Zone Period (1991-92 to 2004-05), post-Agri Export Zone Period (2005-06 to 2019-20), and overall period (1991-92 to 2019-20). The data was analysed using the compound annual growth rate, Cuddy-Della Valle instability index and decomposition models to accomplish the objectives of the study. The results of study indicated that highest growth rates were seen in the production of fenugreek (7.53%), cumin (18.66%), and fennel (11.15%) during the pre-AEZ, post-AEZ, and overall periods. The highest instability were found in fennel production in Rajasthan, with 49.73, 65.51, and 73.76 percent, respectively. The interaction effect was the driving force behind increased output in the coriander, cumin, fennel, and fenugreek crops in pre-AEZ and post-AEZ periods, whereas the yield effect was dominant for overall period.

Weather Based Prediction Of Early Blight Of Potato Caused By Alternaria Solani

Paper ID- AMA-15-02-2022-11136

Epidemiological studies conducted during rabi season of 2018-20 to study the progression of early blight of potato in relation to weather parameters such as, maximum temperature, minimum temperature, maximum relative humidity, minimum relative humidity and rainfall. The initial infection of early blight occurred during 51th Standard Meteorological Week (SMW), with maximum infection rate of 0.094 during 2nd SMW. Maximum and minimum temperatures had significantly positive correlation with the intensity of early blight, whereas, minimum relative humidity had significantly negative correlation. Stepwise multiple linear regression equations revealed that maximum temperature, maximum and minimum relative humidity was responsible for 97.08 contribute for early blight of potato.

Predicting Late Blight Severity of Potato Based on Weather Parameters in the Jammu Province

Paper ID- AMA-15-02-2022-11135

Epidemiological studies conducted during rabi 2018-20 revealed that weather parameters viz., maximum temperature, minimum temperature, maximum relative humidity, minimum relative humidity and rainfall were responsible for the development of late blight of potato. The primary infection of the disease initiated at 50th Standard Meteorological Week (SMW) with maximum infection rate of 0.108 on 3rd SMW. Correlation analysis showed that maximum temperature had significantly positive correlation with the intensity of late blight of potato, whereas, minimum relative humidity had significantly negative correlation. Stepwise multiple linear regression equations for two years (2018-20), revealed that the maximum temperature, maximum and minimum relative humidity and rainfall were responsible for 95.93 contribute in the disease.

Studies on Gene Effects of Pearl millet Hybrids in Arid Conditions

Paper ID- AMA-15-02-2022-11134

Present investigation was carried out to study combining ability effects along with inheritance of grain yield and its component traits in 77 hybrids of pearl millet. The results of both GCA and SCA variances were found significant for majority of characters. The ratio of GCA and SCA variance indicated the predominance of non-additive gene action for all the characters studied. From the results of GCA effects, it was revealed that a number of parents namely, ICMA 98222, ICMA 88004, ICMA 93333, ICMA 30199 ICMA 30201 and ICMA 10444, (female parents), BIB 511-520, BIB 481-500, BIB 561-570 and BIB 571-581 (male parents) were found to be better general combiner for grain yield and most of its component characters. On the basis of SCA effects the crosses namely, ICMA 97111 x BIB 561-570, ICMA 98222 x BIB 481-500, ICMA 88004 x BIB 501-510 and ICMA 93333 x BIB 551-560 were identified as superior for seed yield and related traits over the environments. Therefore, these parents and hybrids are recommended for utilization in development of promising hybrids as well as their use in population improvement.

Pyramiding of Stripe Rust Resistance Genes Yr10 and Yr15 in Elite Indian Wheat Cultivars Using Phenotypic and Marker Assisted Selection

Paper ID- AMA-15-02-2022-11132

The present study was undertaken to pyramid two effective stripe rust resistance genes Yr10 and Yr15 in susceptible local wheat cultivar RSP 561, high yielding wheat variety HD 2967 and a promising cultivar WH 1080 suitable for rain fed situations. In order to pyramid effective Yr genes in adapted susceptible varieties recurrent parents RSP 561, HD 2967 and WH 1080 were crossed with donor parents PBW 752 and PBW 779. Marker assisted selection was conducted in segregating generations using SSR markers Xpsp3000 and Xbarc8 linked to Yr10 and Yr15 respectively. The application of molecular markers facilitated identification of individual plants in segregating generations possessing the targeted genes. Ten homozygous pyramided lines were obtained with the background of elite cultivars with high yield potential and other useful agronomical traits. Agronomic performance of improved lines was compared with that of the recipient parent they showed high resemblance with recipient parents along with stripe rust resistance. These pyramided lines can be used as donor for breeding disease resistance lines in future breeding programme. These can also be used as potential varieties after conducting multi-location yield trials.
