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:
This study was carried out to investigate the effect of the cleaning process (cleaning and without cleaning) and lint grades six grades (G/FG, G, FGF/ G, FGF, GF/FGF and GF) on fiber quality (upper half mean length m.m.), uniformity index% fiber strength g/Tex and micronair value and yarn quality – C. V%-) of some extra-long-staple cotton varieties (Giza 93, Giza87, Giza92, Giza96, and Giza88) and some long-staple cotton verities (Giza86, giza94, giza97, giza90 and Giza 95) and their interaction. Results indicated that the difference between cleaning treatments’ upper half mean length (m.m), uniformity index%, fiber strength (g/Tex), Micronair, yarn strength, and yarn and yarn evenness (C.V%) were significant at all varieties of extra-long staple. Results showed that differences between lint grades six were significant. G/FG and G grades gave the best values for all studied traits, and GF gave the worst values for all these traits. Also, results indicated that the differences between verities were significant for all studied traits. The interaction between the cleaning process and verities on yarn strength and yarn evenness (C.V%) was significant.
Due to the absence of effective management techniques, weed infestation is one of the main biotic factors affecting wheat output and productivity. Herbicides are a crucial part of agricultural production systems because they are the quickest, cheapest, and most effective way to control weeds. Decrease in the use of herbicides without compromising yields can save production costs and environmental damage. Evaluation of herbicides and their mixtures were studied at the experimental farm of the Department of Agronomy, CSK HPKV, Palampur, to control the broad-leaf weed infestation in wheat. Findings exhibit that among the different herbicide treatments tested Halauxifen methyl Ester + Florasulam + Polyglycol recorded significantly higher growth and yield attributes of wheat which was statistically at par with Halauxifen-methyl + florasulam + carfentrazone + surfactant treatment while significantly lower growth and yield attributes of wheat was recorded in weedy check treatment. Higher yield (straw and grain) and weed control efficiency of wheat was recorded in Halauxifen-methyl + florasulam + carfentrazone + surfactant treatment while lower grain yield, straw yield and weed control efficiency was recorded in weedy check. Hence, highest gross returns (134.3 × 103 INR ha-1), net returns (91.4 × 103 INR ha-1) and B: C ratio (2.13) were obtained from Halauxifen-methyl + florasulam + carfentrazone + surfactant 10.21 + 20 g a.i. ha 1 treatment.
Rice is the major staple food crop across the globe. Rice productivity is hindered by several biotic and abiotic stresses, which cause serious damage to plant growth and yield losses. Understanding the regulatory molecular events and their biological mechanisms, which are interconnected through the molecular interaction process to minimize the yield losses caused by the occurrence of stress factors, is of great importance. In this study, the data on experimentally curated stress-responsive miRNAs and lncRNAs in rice were collected from the literature and stored in a database. The chromosome map, bipartite network, and blast options were developed for miRNA. The basic features of miRNA (402) and LncRNA (4,543) include miRNA, miRNA ID, position, chromosome no, sequence, regulation, and protein function. For LncRNA, gene ID, chromosome number, gene regulation strands for abiotic stress and transcript ID, chromosome number, gene regulation strands for biotic stress, chromoMap network, and blast options were included in the database.The database can be efficiently used for genetic engineering experiments such as the development of CRISPR/cas9 construct and generation of transgenic plants and also for molecular breeding, which would facilitate the development of high-yielding rice varieties with broad-spectrum biotic and abiotic stress tolerance.
Mixed tree plantations can be a good silvicultural alternative for climate change mitigation. The carbon sequestration estimated in trees and shrubs from the previous study indicated that there are certain tree species with high ability to fix atmospheric carbon dioxide into tree biomass. In order to understand how carbon storage and allocation patterns vary among different plantation types, the present study was carried out to compare the performance of two different plantation sites (BSA 1: 14 species of 10 families and BSA 2: 14 species including 7 trees and 7 shrubs of 11 families). Based on the results, the highest biomass accumulation was observed in BSA 1(6.82 tonnes of biomass per ha per year) and the lowest mean biomass production was observed in BSA 2 (3.10 tonnes of biomass per ha per year). Likewise, the highest total carbon sequestration and oxygen release potential was recorded in BSA 1 (4.26 tonnes of carbon per ha per year, 11.36 tonnes of oxygen per ha per year). The results revealed that out of two study areas studied, the experimental site with tree species showed better performance when compared to the site planted with trees and shrubs. Azadirachta indica, Thespesia populnea, Pongamia pinnata and Terminalia catappa were the tree species that contribute for high carbon sequestration in the BSA 1. The present study suggest that selection of correct choice of tree species for plantation would enhance more carbon sequestration, high oxygen release and improved environmental quality.
The current demand driven cultivation practices required a multipurpose crop like maize that is used for various purposes including food, feed, fodder, green cobs, sweet corn, popcorn, starch and several industrial products. A study was conducted with 90 farmers from nine villages of three blocks of Nabrangpur district revealed that the respondents have better knowledge on summer ploughing and cleaning of crop residue and stalks and FYM application are some basic activities of land preparation so that are well known to the farmers. Application of chemicals, preparation of furrows for water application like pre-sowing activities are not known to the maize farmers. The farmers have adequate knowledge about irrigation system provided during critical stages of growth which are emergence stage, weaning, initiation of ears, tassel visible, female flowering grain abortion limit stage and doughy grain stage are more prone to moisture stress. All the socio-economic attributes of the respondents except family size have significant and influence the knowledge level of the maize farmers.
