Development of Highly Nutritious Energy Bar Using Chia Seeds and Analyze its Nutritional and Nutraceutical Properties

Paper ID- AMA-23-05-2023-12271

Salvia hispanica seed often is sold under its common name "chia" as well as several trademarked names. The seeds have a relatively high content of protein of high biological value. Chia seed energy bar was made in three different variations. The energy bar was prepared using 30%, 40% and 60% inclusion of chia seeds as value added product development. In variation I, the high mean value was obtained for flavor such as 8.45 than other sensory attributes. In chia energy bar variation 2, the high mean value was obtained to overall acceptability as 8.35 mean values & In variation 3, the high mean value was obtained for to overall acceptability as 8.35 mean value in sensory evaluation. Nutritive value of carbohydrate, protein, fat, fibre, iron, calcium were present in chia energy bar. Chia seeds are excellent source of omega 3 fatty acids. In this research paper value added products from chia seeds to improve nutritional status of our society.

Assessment of organic management and farmer’s practices in ginger cultivation

Paper ID- AMA-22-05-2023-12270

A field experiment was conducted in three different location of Tangabari village of Chirang district, Assam, India in 2022 to assess farmers’ practices of ginger cultivation vis-à-vis it’s organic management practices using farm yard manure (FYM), Vermicpompost (VC), Biofertilizer (BF: PSB and Azospirrillum). From the experiment it was observed that the plants attained maximum height of 84.93 cm in the plots treated with the concoction of FYM, VC and BF followed by 84.77 cm in the plots treated with VC only. Similarly, the same treatment also resulted in the highest number of leaves per plant (9.43) and number of tillers per clump (15.5) while the maximum number of fingers (15.2) per rhizome was observed in the plots treated with vermicompost. For yield, the concoction of FYM, VC and BF was found to be most effective producing 28.01 tonnes of rhizome per hectare with a BC ratio of 3.88. Throughout the experiment, farmers practice was found to be inferior to organic management practices adopted for ginger.

UPSCALING OF COWPEA (Vigna unguiculata L.) VARIETIES FOR GRAIN YIELD AND PROFITABILITY THROUGH ON FARM TRIAL

Paper ID- AMA-22-05-2023-12269

Cowpea is one of the important food legume crops belonging to the Fabaceae family. Farmers lack of awareness about the latest cowpea varieties suitable for rainfed situations; therefore, an attempt was made to assess suitable varieties for enhancing yield and productivity under on farm trial. The present investigation was conducted in three villages of Virudhunagar district to assess the suitable variety of cowpea for rainfed conditions. Five farmers’ fields were randomly selected and two high yielding improved varieties of cowpea (VBN 3 and DC 15) were sown along with one check variety (CO (CP) 7). The trial was conducted with five replications. During the course of study, observations like plant height (cm), days to 50 % flowering, grain yield (q/ha) were recorded. Among the varieties assessed, VBN 3 variety recorded the plant height (68.9 cm), days to 50 % flowering (53 days), maximum grain yield of 11 q/ha with high net return (Rs.49500) and Benefit-cost ratio (1:2.20) followed by DC 15 grain yield of 10 q/ ha. Hence, it was concluded that the VBN 3 variety of cowpea proved superior followed by DC 15 under the rainfed condition.

Effect of Nano-chitosan, Nano-micronutrients and Bio capsules on Vegetative growth, flowering and fruiting attributes of Strawberry (Fragaria × ananassa) cv. Winter dawn

Paper ID- AMA-22-05-2023-12268

The Department of Horticulture at Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology & Sciences in Prayagraj (U.P.) conducted a research study titled "Effect of Nano-chitosan, Nano-micronutrients and Bio capsules on growth, flowering and fruiting attributes of Strawberry (Fragaria × ananassa) cv. Winter dawn" during the academic years of 2020–2021 and 2021–2022 at their Research Farm. A Randomised Block Design with three replicates was used to test fifteen treatments that utilised different combinations of N, P, K, nano chitosan, bio capsules, and nano particles of ZnO and FeO. The primary aim of the experiment was to assess the impact of nano technology on the growth, flowering, and fruiting characteristics of strawberry cv. Winter dawn. According to the findings of this study, application of treatment T14 [N P K (RDF) + Nano chitosan 100 ppm (Soil drenching) + Bio capsule 500ppm + foliar application of ZnO and FeO nano particles (NPs)] proved to be most effective treatment to increase growth, flowering, and fruiting traits of strawberry.

Impact of Integrated Nutrient Management on Wheat Productivity, Nutrient Uptake and their Use Efficiency in Sub-tropical India

Paper ID- AMA-18-05-2023-12265

A two-year (2021-22 to 2022-23) field experimentation was carried out in Rabi seasons to evaluate the impact of various integrated sources of nutrient management on uptake of nutrient, their use-efficiency, and productivity for enhancing fertilizer use-efficiency and productivity of wheat crop in Sub-tropical India, which was initiated at crop research centre of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Uni. of Agri. & Tech., Meerut. The trial was carried out in Randomized Block Design (RBD) with three replications and fourteen integrated nutrient management treatments viz., T1-Control, T2-100% recommended N:P:K (150:75:60 kg/ha), T3-50% recommended N + FYM @10t/ha, T4-50% recommended N + 50% N through vermicompost + bio-stimulant-G @20kg/ha, T5-50% recommended N + bio-stimulant-G @20kg/ha, T6-75% recommended N + 50% N through vermicompost, T7-75% recommended N + FYM @10t/ha + bio-stimulant-G @20kg/ha, T8-FYM @10t/ha + bio-stimulants toggle (containing marine extracts) @ 2.9 l/ha, T9-FYM @10t/ha + bio-stimulant voyagro (containing proline, glycine betaine and glutamic acid) @ 585 ml/ha, T10-100% recommended N + FYM @10t/ha, T11-FYM @10t/ha + NPK biofertilizer + urea @ 20kg/ha, T12-FYM @10t/ha + biofertilizer mixture (A. chrococcum + AMF + B.circulans) + bio-stimulant-L @ 625 ml/ha foliar spray each at 45 and 60 DAS, T13-100% recommended N + FYM @10t/ha + azatobacter and T14-50% recommended N + FYM @10t/ha + 25% N through vermicompost. Among the various treatments, the results revealed that (T13) receiving 100% recommended N + FYM @ 10 t/ha + azatobacter was found to have significantly higher yield attributing characters, grain yield, and straw yield, total NPK uptake, and their use-efficiency of both years comparing to other treatments. T13 recorded highest yield attributes characters i.e., effective tillers, length of ear, spikelets /spikes number, grains/spike number and 1000-grain weight (84.5 & 81.7), (12.6 & 12.4 cm), (17.9 and 17.4), (49.7 and 49.6) and (40.2g and 40.1g) during 2021-22 and 2022-23 in comparison to control (T1) with no-nutrient application applied respectively. Crop with application of 100% recommended N + FYM @10t/ha + azatobacter (T13) increase in yield of grain in compared to control plot by 79.6% (47.6 q/ha) and maximum yield of straw was obtained with application of 100% recommended N + FYM @10t/ha + azatobacter (T13). Maximum total NPK uptake (41.7 to 116.3 kg/ha & 39.9 to 112.3 kg/ha), (6.1 to 22.5 kg/ha & 5.8 to 21.6 kg/ha), and (48.7 to 120.8 kg/ha & 45.7 to 116.5 kg/ha) was recorded with incorporation of 100% recommended N + FYM @10t/ha + azatobacter (T13), followed by 75% recommended N + FYM @10t/ha + bio-stimulant-G 20kg/ha (T7) respectively, and significantly better than rest of the treatments during both years. Lowest total uptake of NPK was recorded in (T1) control plots. Raising the level of NPK from control to treatment (T13) crop fertilized with the 100% recommended N + FYM @10t/ha + azatobacter recorded the higher agronomic efficiency (35.2 & 35.1 kg seed/kg NPK) in wheat. The lowest combined NPK agronomic efficiency of 3.8 & 3.8 kg seed/kg NPK was recorded in (T5) 50% recommended N + bio-stimulant-G @20kg/ha. The maximum physiological efficiency (194.6 & 152.5 kg/kg NPK) was attained, when level of NPK was increased from control to T5. The lowest physiological efficiency of 28.4 & 27.1 kg/kg NPK was found in treatment T12 during both the years. When NPK levels were increased from control to T13 over both years, the best apparent recovery efficiency of NPK applied in wheat (118.0 & 120.2%) was observed. During both the years, T5 had the lower apparent recovery efficiency (4.0 & 5.1%).
