Effect of nitrogen through organic sources on production efficiency and economics of onion-based cropping systems

Paper ID- AMA-06-06-2022-11439

The field research was conducted for two years (2015-16 to 2016-17) on clay loam soil at IFSRP, Rahuri (MH), India, to test the organic farming package evaluation of onion-based cropping systems in kharif season. The onion-based cropping sequences were evaluated based on production efficiency, total gross return, net profit and B:C ratio. In the above assessment, the residual impact of 50% N through FYM + 50% N through VC on succeeding rabi season crops was significantly higher than 50% N through FYM + 50% N through NSC and remained at par with 50% N through VC + 50% N through NSC during both the seasons and on the pooled mean. Similarly, all these parameters were significantly higher by direct application of 100% N through organic (50% N through FYM + 50% N through VC) to succeeding rabi season crops on onion-based cropping systems rather than 50% N using through organic and remained at par with 75% N through organic during both the season and on the pooled mean.

A comprehensive review on biological activities of Bunium Persicum.

Paper ID- AMA-06-06-2022-11438

Bunium Persicum is a herb of the Umbelliferae family expand in separate regions of Asia. It is a perennial herb, 30cm to tall 80cm height and its flowers are small, white in color. Bunium Persicum has consequential therapeutic, antioxidant and antimicrobial effects which appropriate its high prospective use in the therapeutic and food industry. In conventional medicine, uses of this plant in remedy or enhance digestive and urinary disorders, glaucoma, corpulence and increasing breast milk. Bunium Persicum recognize some inflammable compounds, limonene, gamma-terpinene, p-cymene, β-pinene, α-pinene, cuminaldehyde, and myrcene. Because of the reality that Bunium Persicum is generally used in diet as a flavoring agent, there is no vital concern regarding the virulent effects of this plant.

Growth and variability in sorghum production in Bhilwara district vis-à-vis Rajasthan

Paper ID- AMA-04-06-2022-11437

The purpose of this research is to look at the variations in sorghum crop area, production, and productivity in Bhilwara district and Rajasthan state. The investigation was carried out using secondary data. For the years TE 1990-91 to TE 2019-20, data was gathered from a variety of government publications and websites. The compound growth rate, coefficient of variation (CV) and instability index, effects of area, productivity and their interactions towards increasing production are also computed. Sorghum crop in Bhilwara district and Rajasthan state grew annually with compound growth of 1.40 and -0.36 percent in area, 5.65 and 2.63 percent in production, and 4.20 and 3.07 percent in productivity. The instability in terms of Cuddy Della Valle Index in the sorghum area, production, and yield in Bhilwara district was found to be 11.85, 42.99, and 38.62 percent, respectively, while it was found to be 7.27, 19.78, and 16.56 percent in Rajasthan. The relative contribution of yield, area, and their interaction (area and yield) in Bhilwara district was 79.60, 19.46, and 0.94 percent, while in Rajasthan it was 250.25, -163.80, and 13.55 percent, respectively.

Microbial Decolourization and Detoxification of Azo dye and Textile Effluent

Paper ID- AMA-03-06-2022-11435

The aim of present investigation was to examine the potential of indigenous bacteria, isolated from textile effluent contaminated soil samples for decolorization of textile dye (Direct blue 53) and textile effluent. Bacterial isolates were evaluated for decolorization in mineral medium amended with Direct blue dye at varying concentration of 10-200 mgL-1. Different incubation parameters such as temperature, pH and aeration were optimized to enhance decolorization rate. The potent bacterial isolates Pseudochrobactrum kiredjianiae YPR 5, Brevundimonas diminuta YPR 25 and Alcaligenes faecalis YPR 36 showed significant decolorization potential after 72 of incubation. Maximum decolourization of Direct blue 53 (200 mgL-1) shown by Alcaligenes faecalis YPR 36 (74.8%) followed by Brevundimonas diminuta YPR 25 (66.9%) at optimum pH (7.0) and temperature (35 °C) under static condition within 72 h of incubation. Pseudochrobactrum kiredjianiae YPR 5 gave dye decolourization (100 mgL-1) of 61.4% at pH (7.0) and temperature (35 °C) under static condition within 72 h of incubation. Alcaligenes faecalis YPR 36 decolourizes (48.5%) textile effluent (25%) after 120 h of incubation. Phytotoxicity studies on seeds of Cicer arietinum, Vigna radiata and Vigna mungo found that treated textile effluent showed less inhibitory effect on seed germination as compare to untreated textile effluent. In conclusion, the results showed that the bacterial isolates have ability to decolourize the textile dye Direct blue 53 dye and textile effluent under the optimized conditions.

Pooled mean performance of seedless cucumber inbreds under naturally ventilated polyhouse condition in Bihar

Paper ID- AMA-03-06-2022-11434

Experiments were conducted to evaluate the performance of eight polyhouse cucumber inbreds for earliness, yield and disease tolerance against downy mildew at Bihar Agricultural University, Sabour, Bhagalpur during Spring and Kharif seasons 2018 in saw-toothed naturally ventilated polyhouse. The data were recorded for thirteen quantitative characters viz., days to first female flower anthesis, node number to first female flower, days to first fruit harvest, fruits per plant, flesh thickness (cm), fruit length (cm), fruit diameter (cm), average fruit weight (g), vine length (cm), crop duration, yield per plant (g), TSS and PDI (%) for downy mildew. The study reported that the genotypes BRPCU-1, BRPCU-2 and BRPCU-3 were identified as best genotypes in respect to earliness in pooled over seasons. While, BRPCU-1 and BRPCU-2 showed resistance and moderately resistance, respectively in terms of PDI (%) for downy mildew. For yield and its contributing traits, the inbred lines BRPCU-3 and BRPCU-5 showed better performance in pooled over season.
