A Review: Fertilizer Management for Achieving The 'Utopia' Of National Food Security From Sustainable Agriculture Perspective

Paper ID- AMA-21-03-2022-11230

Sustainable agriculture is one of the goals of Indonesia's sustainable development. Improving fertilizer management in Indonesia to achieve national food security is one of the challenges in the agricultural sector. With Indonesia's population growing at an approximately equal rate to the availability of natural resources, fertilizer management from sustainable agriculture is an important alternative to consider. Technological advancements and policies that benefit farmers and food production improve fertilizer management. These ensure the efficient and effective allocation, distribution, application of fertilizers, and the long-term viability of any improvements by reducing reliance on external systems. Overall, fertilizer management in sustainable agriculture is one of the best options for meeting national food security goals.

Export Performance of Seed Spices in India

Paper ID- AMA-20-03-2022-11227

For analyzing the export performance of the seed spices in India, the current study was conducted from 1998-99 to 2017-18. The entire period was divided into two sub-periods viz. Period I (1998-99 to 2007-08), Period II (2008-09 to 2017-18). Four major seed spices mainly coriander, cumin, fennel, and fenugreek were considered for the analysis. For this, analytical tool Markov Chain Analysis was used. The development of transitional probability matrix is central process in this analysis. The Markov Chain Analysis displayed that Malaysia was a loyal importer in most of the seed spices except fenugreek. Whereas, Other countries though import in fewer quantities, there was high stability. Attempts should be made to reach the potential production capacity of the seed spices for enhancing trade. Countries like Malaysia, UK, UAE, and the USA need to be given prominence whereas efforts are also desirable to recognize key markets.

Medicinal plants-mediated biogenic synthesis of nanoparticles and their roles in new generation agricultural practices

Paper ID- AMA-18-03-2022-11225

The nanoparticles (NPs) refer to the matter at the nanoscale (1-100 nm). Despite their size, they are proving their efficiency in numerous domains. The agriculture sectors have also explored and are being benefitted by its novel applications. Previously, the NPs were synthesized through physical and chemical methods. However, those methods came with expensive and environmentally hazardous results. This diverted the research community towards the green route of NPs synthesis using the biological existents. The plants, due to their abundance, are considered to be an ideal candidate for the large-scale synthesis of NPs. The more the biological value, the more is the quality and stability of NPs. Considering this context, this review gives details on the medicinal plant-mediated green synthesis of NPs. This also discusses various applications and recent advances of NPs application in agriculture sectors.

Growth Analysis of Lac Production During XII Plan Vis-a-Vis XI Plan Period in West Bengal, India

Paper ID- AMA-17-03-2022-11222

The formulation of a strategy is to improve livelihood prospects of beneficiaries from an assessment of the potential and performance of the state's primary lac producing districts. This study is based on secondary data on lac production during Plan XI (2007- 08 to 2011-12) and Plan XII (2012-13 to 2016-17). Secondary lac production data was evaluated crop by crop and district by district, and the trend was examined. Few econometric measures, such as mean production, growth rate, and percent changes in mean value over the XII plan and XI plan period, were analyzed. West Bengal's contribution to national production declined from 6.97 % during the XI plan period to 3.56 % during the XII plan. During the XII plan, there is a 3.41 % decline in the share. During the XI plan, the state had a positive growth rate of 10.06 %, which dropped to 1.06 % during the XII plan. Bankura district had the highest % change in mean value from XI to XII plan, at 38.97 %, followed by Other minor lac producing districts combined (27.91 %), and Purulia district (26.35 %). However, the mean value decreases only in the Midnapur district (-63.33%) from XI to XII plan. The state as a whole recorded 41.82 % decrease in mean value over the XI plan. The decrease per cent is due to a decrease in the mean value of rangeeni and kusmi summer crop. There is a substantial decrease in rangeeni lac production in the Midnapur district. However, there is a substantial increase in the mean value of kusmi crop in Purulia and other districts together. In respect of instability in production during the XII plan, all direct recorded lower instability than states figure of 76.60 %.

Identifying Potential of Antagonistic fungi and Plant extract against Chilli Anthracnose (Colletotrichum capsici)

Paper ID- AMA-16-03-2022-11220

In this investigation, biological management was examined to control Colletotrichum capsici caused anthracnose in chilli plants. Fungal antagonist Trichoderma spp. and local plant extracts were tested singly against the pathogen. In laboratory studies, it has been depicted that Eucalyptus plant extracts (at 20%W/V) and Trichoderma viride inhibited the mycelium growth of Pathogen to the magnitude of (81.11%) and (90.74%), respectively. Further studies in pot and field conditions revealed that Trichoderma viride was observed to be superior in controlling the incidence of chilli anthracnose disease (69.63% & 63.43%) in highly susceptible cultivar. Five Trichoderma species were also screened to check the chitinolytic enzyme. Out of these species, T. viride exhibited the highest chitin degrading activity which leads to maximum inhibition of the mycelial growth of the test pathogen. The findings indicated that leaf extracts of plants significantly reduced the pathogen growth in laboratory conditions only, whereas Trichoderma species were found superior in laboratory, pot and field conditions. Therefore, these findings undoubtedly supported the usefulness of antipathogenic Trichoderma in limiting the occurrence of anthracnose in chilli.
