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.

Productivity of soybean (Glycine max L.) and soil properties as affected by integrated nutrient management practices

Paper ID- AMA-12-08-2023-12510

A field carried out at research farm Department of Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry, J N. Krishi Vishwa Vidyalaya, Jabalpur during Kharif season of two consequentive years of 2016 and 2017. Experiment was laid out in a Randomized Block Design by replicating thrice. The crop was fertilized with NPK and organic manures as per treatments and applied as basal in all the treatments. Application of all combinations of sources nutrients found to be unable to bring out significant changes in soil properties with respect to pH, EC and OC. However, the status of NP and K markedly increase over control under organically amended treatments and 100% NPK through chemical fertilizers. Furthermore, these three nutrient statuses in post harvest soils showed superiorly over initial value of soil. As regards to the content of chlorophyll a, b and chlorophyll a and b initially it increases with increasing rate up to 60 DAS then the content start decreasing. The treatment having vermicompost @ 1.5 t ha-1 enriched with PSB and Rhizobium and remaining dose of NPK was applied through chemical fertilizers proved as good as 100% NPK through chemical fertilizer alone with respect to chlorophyll content during both the years. The treatment T5 (Vermicompost @ 1.5 t ha-1 enriched with PSB & Rhizobium + RRDFCF) possessed the values of 2.02, 1.13 and 3.15 at 30 DAS 2.07, 1.58 and 3.65 at 45 DAS as well as 2.21 1.64 and 3.85 mg g-1 at 60 DAS a, b and a+b chlorophyll respectively. The highest seed and stover yields (1923 and 3192 kg ha-1), were found under T5. On the other hand, the significantly the lowest yield was secured from the control treatment. The protein per cent in soybean seed was seen to increase up to maximum extent of 41.7% due to application of 100% NPK followed by T3 (FYM @ 2 t ha-1 enriched with PSB & Rhizobium + RRDFCF) i.e. 41.4%.

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).


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.
