Exploring Genetic Influences on Seed Morphological Traits in Wheat: A Genome-Wide Association Study under Moisture Deficit Stress and Well-Watered Conditions

Paper ID- AMA-11-09-2023-12582

Moisture deficit stress is a major environmental factor affecting crop productivity, including wheat, one of the world's most vital staple crops. Understanding the genetic basis of seed morphological traits under moisture deficit stress condition is essential for developing climate-resilient wheat cultivars. We used 193 wheat genotypic panel and 35,143 genetic markers to assess seven seed morphological traits, including area size, perimeter length, seed length, seed width, circularity of seed, length-to-width ratio and the distance between the intersection of length and width of seed and the centre of gravity. We also measured the thousand seed weight as a quality trait. Our findings revealed 37 associations between markers and these seed traits across 18 chromosomes. Remarkably 26 of these associations explained the 10% of the phenotypic variation in the traits under moisture stress conditions. These marker-trait associations reveal genes responsive to moisture deficit stress, offering promise for developing climate-resilient wheat varieties. The genomic regions linked to these traits could be utilized for marker-assisted selection, ultimately boosting wheat productivity in challenging climates.

This study aimed to evaluate the effects of age, gender and physiological state on liver parameters. 218 samples of clinical healthy crossbreed sheep raised at Haidar farm of Ain Gasma, Tiaret province, used to measure the plasma activities of alanine aminotransferase (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), gamma glutamyl transferase (GGT), alkaline phosphatase (ALP) total bilirubin (TBIL), direct bilirubin (DBIL), albumin (ALB), total protein (TP). The research highlights the significant impact of age on all the parameters, but no significant difference in terms of blood GGT, ALB and TBIL levels among male groups was noticed, while gender was considered as secondary factor influencing blood ALP, ALT, TP, DBIL and TBIL levels. In addition, the physiological stage has an impact on GGT and ALB parameters, In conclusion, to interprate the Hepatic metabolism, we need to take into consisderation, the physiological status, the gender and the age of the sheep.

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.
