AMA, Agricultural Mechanization in Asia, Africa and Latin America (ISSN: 00845841) is a peer-reviewed journal. The journal covers Agricultural and Biological Sciences and all sort of engineering topic. the journal's scopes are in the following fields but not limited to:
A field experiment was conducted to ascertain the production potential of different onion varieties and to identify the most suitable high yielding varieties with better growth, yield and quality. The experiment was carried out during the rabi season of 2019-20 at the experimental research farm of RLBCAU, Jhansi. Nineteen onion varieties were evaluated in Randomized block design with three replications. The data analysis revealed sufficient variability among all the genotypes for all the studied traits. The results depicted that, NHRDF Red-4 performed better with respect to majority of the yield and contributing traits and it can be further considered for multiple trials for further evaluation. The highest number of leaves, Polar diameter of bulb, leaf diameter was recorded in the variety Pusa Sona.
Field experiments were carried out to study the effect of Chitosan and mulching on yield attributing characters and yield of sweet pepper (CV. Indra) in Rayagada district of Southern Odisha during September-January of 2019-20 and 2020-21. The experiments were laid out in Factorial Randomized Block Design with three replications and twelve treatments viz., T1: No mulch + No Chitosan, T2: No mulch + Chitosan@ 20PPM, T3: No mulch + Chitosan@40PPM, T4: No mulch + Chitosan@60PPM, T5: Silver Plastic mulch + No Chitosan, T6: Silver Plastic mulch+ Chitosan @20 PPM, T7: Silver Plastic Mulch +Chitosan @ 40 PPM, T8: Silver Plastic Mulch + Chitosan @ 60PPM, T9: Paddy Straw Mulch@ 7.5t/ha + No Chitosan, T10: Paddy Straw mulch @ 7.5t/ha + Chitosan @ 20PPM, T11: Paddy Straw Mulch@ 7.5t/ha + Chitosan @ 40PPM, T12: Paddy Straw Mulch @ 7.5t/ha + Chitosan @ 60PPM. The present study revealed that the maximum plant height (48.62 cm) was obtained with Paddy straw mulch + Chitosan 60PPM, where as maximum fruiting branches (8.20), maximum fruit weight (106.80g), polar diameter (7.75cm), shoulder diameter (6.51cm) and fruit yield (31.55t/ha) was recorded with Silver Plastic Mulch + Chitosan @ 40 PPM. The less the number of days required for flowering and fruiting the fruit can reach the market early and can fetch higher price which was directly related to higher return to the farmer and it was obtained by application of Chitosan @ 60 PPM with silver plastic mulching (21.9 days for flowering and 52.7 days for fruiting).
Millets are a group of highly variable small seeded grasses, widely grown around the world as cereal crops/ grains for fodder and human food. In India, eight millets species (Sorghum, Pearl millet, Finger millet, Foxtail millet, Kodo millet, Proso millet, Barnyard millet and Little millet) are commonly cultivated under rain fed conditions. The diet based on millets and leafy vegetables having antidiabetic properties gives a new approach in the treatment of diabetic mellitus. The study was carried out to formulate multi millet based convenient chappathi and dosa mix with incorporation of dried drumstick and palak leaves and evaluated the anti diabetic effect of these mixes in alloxan induced diabetic albino rats. All the developed four mixes are scored higher acceptability and provided high amount of fibre, iron and beta carotene. In the anti diabetic study, rats were divided into 6 groups of 6 animals each. Group 1 served as non diabetic control, Group 2 as diabetic control and Groups 3,4, 5 and 6 served as treatment groups. Diabetic was induced in rats by administration of alloxan monohydrate (150mg/kg) through the intra peritoneal route. Treatment groups (G3-G6) received diet of (100mg/kg of body weight) multi millets drumstick leaves chappathi mix (T1); multi millet palak leaves chappathi mix (T2); multi millet drumstick dosa mix (T3) and multi millet palak leaves dosa mix (T4) respectively. After the 28 days of treatment, diabetic rats showed highly significant reduction in blood glucose levels when compared to diabetic control and non diabetic groups. Hence the study concluded that multi millets and leafy vegetable based instant mixes have an effective antidiabetic property which controlling the blood glucose levels in the rats and also this study will create a new avenue to formulate the special convenient food mixes for diabetic people.
Current study undertaken to find out the insecticidal properties of essential oils extracted from two local plants namely Jasmine Jasminum grandiflorum (Fam. Oleaceae) and Basil Ocimum basilicum Var, (Fam. Lamiaceae) against two of major stored insects (Tribolium castaneum, and Rhyzopertha dominica). Results showed that for T. castaneum basil absolute had the strongest contact effect at all exposure periods of exposure with LC50 of (2690.0, 2270.0 and 1735.0 mg/kg) after 24, 48 and 120 h of exposure, respectively. Also showed that all tested essential oils had an effect on adults of R. dominica. However, basil absolute had the strongest effect with LC50 of (489.8 and 842.7 mg/kg) after 48 and 24 h of exposure, respectively. Based on LT50 values for T. castaneum basil absolute had the strongest effect with LT50 of 0.34 h, However for R. dominica all tested essential oils had an effect and with the highest concentration (5000 mg/kg) basil absolute had the strongest effect with LT50 of 6.60 h. The results show that all tested essential oils had an inhibition effect on T. castaneum at all concentrations. With the highest concentration (7500 mg/kg) basil oil had the strongest effect with 100% reduction. The results show that all tested essential oils had the same inhibition effect on R. dominica at all concentrations with 100% reduction.
This study has the objective to standardize the optimal nutritional and physical parameters associated with the growth and sporulation of fungal biological control agent named C. rosea. Among the six isolates of biocontrol agent, TNAU CR 01 was used in the present study. The effects of different substrates amended on nutritional medium were tested for the growth of fungal mycelium by petri plate method. Different temperature range was maintained to found the optimal environmental set up for improving the growth in BOD incubator. The pH range from acidic to alkaline was tested for their role in increasing the biomass and conidial production of C. rosea under liquid cultural condition.
