Agronomic responses and molecular breeding approaches towards elevated ozone in rice

Paper ID- AMA-17-05-2022-11384

Rice (Oryza sativa L.) is one of the most important staple food crop cultivated in South East Asia fulfilling the dietary needs of the people. This crop is being influenced by a variety of abiotic and biotic factors contributing to a change in its physiology, biochemistry as well as its genetics. Abiotic factors including oxides of nitrogen, carbon and an array of volatile organic compounds react with UV radiation leading to the generation of ozone in the troposphere. The ozone influence on rice has caused a lot of concern among the rice scientists and has necessitated the development of strategies to combat the problem. Molecular biology approaches including marker assisted selection involving QTLs linked to genes conferring tolerance to ozone stress have been identified due to the recent breakthroughs in rice genomics. Many medium-effect loci instead of single large-effect loci are supposed to govern the trait. The present review is an approach to provide information on the physiological, biochemical and molecular responses of rice towards elevated ozone tolerance and also reflect the available strategies to minimize the effect.

Genetic variability in different accessions of Asparagus racemosus under Jammu sub-tropics

Paper ID- AMA-17-05-2022-11383

Twenty accessions of Shatavar (Asparagus racemosus) were evaluated under subtropical conditions of Jammu region in a three replicate randomized block design to estimate growth performance, genetic variation, broad sense heritability and correlation between yield and yield components. The accessions IC471923 (3.98 tons ha-1), IC471922 (3.88 tons ha-1), IC471911(3.84 tons ha-1) and IC471909 (3.50 tons ha-1) had highest tuber dry weight (tons ha-1) and showed high performance for other characters. They proved to be the most promising accessions in sub tropics of Jammu region. High heritability combined with high genetic advance was marked for clump weight per plant (77.01%, 78.05%), number of tubers per plant (66.41%, 53.56 %), tubers fresh weight per plant (84.62%, 88.29%) and tubers dry weight per plant (85.47%, 86.70%). High positive correlation was found between clump weight and fresh weight of tubers per plant (0.989) followed by fresh weight of tubers per plant and dry weight of tubers per plant (0.985) and clump weight and dry weight of tubers per plant (0.976). From the present investigation, it is found that IC471923, IC471922, IC471911and IC471909 are elite in terms of greater dry tuber yield and clump weight per plant, number of tubers per plant, and fresh and dry weight per plant and can be used for selection in asparagus improvement programme.

Spatial Distribution of Soil Physico-Chemical properties of North Western Himalayan Region of Jammu and Kashmir, (India) Using Inverse Distance Weighted (IDW) Interpolation Technique in GIS Environment

Paper ID- AMA-17-05-2022-11381

Soil surveying and soil mapping is a significant operation, since it plays a significant role in the knowledge about soil properties. The selection of a spatial IDW interpolation technique will impact the quality of site-specific soil fertility maps. This study was carried out in order to thematically map out some soil physico chemical characteristics in the north western Himalayan region of Jammu and Kashmir, India. Some physical and chemical properties of the soil were determined to evaluate the current situation of the Khag micro-watershed of Kashmir valley, since no similar study had been conducted in the area to evaluate the soil status. Traditionally, soil property values are acquired either from thematic soil maps or from geostatistical approaches and IDW technique using exact laboratory measurements. Both data types convey considerable information: thematic soil maps through IDW interpolation technique provide comprehensive but vague information; while as laboratory analyses provide exact but scarce measurements. Ideally, they should be combined with the help of GIS. The use of the geographic information systems (GIS) and sampling broad analysis through the use of global positioning system (GPS) is found to be a very effectual tool. The objective of this investigation is to conduct a soil survey in a new developing area using a non-traditional technique. Geo-spatial technology was used in this study to present the laboratory results of the soil analysis; as such, this was accomplished through preparation of thematic maps for soil properties. In order to assess and investigate soil properties of study area, a total of fourty four (44) composite surface soil samples were taken and examined and analyzed for physicochemical properties. The surface soils of upper zone (higher altitude) soils were coarser due to removal of finer fractions. The pH of the soils were slightly acidic to neutral, electrical conductivity was within normal range. The soils were found medium to high in organic carbon, the surface soils varied in texture from loam, silty loam, sandy clay loam and silty clay loam to clay loam.

Line segmentation of Tibetan ancient documents based on seam carving

Paper ID- AMA-17-05-2022-11379

Line segmentation of Tibetan ancient documents is one of the key steps of character recognition. The adhesion between lines and broken characters often affect the effect of line segmentation. In this paper, we implement line segmentation for binary images of Tibetan ancient documents, and propose the energy minimization seam carving technology. The steps are as follows: (1) Radon transform is used to correct the skew; (2) The document image is projected horizontally, and the projection result is smoothed to accurately detect the position of the core area and the number of text lines; (3)The isolated upper vowel and broken stroke are classified to reduce the interference of seam carving path; (4) The gradient energy, distance from the core area energy, distance from the text area energy and passing through the text area energy are weighted to get the energy map; (5) Using seam carving technology, the text line is segmented in the line segmentation area of energy graph, and then combined with the processing in (3), finally the text line segmentation result is obtained. The experimental results show that the method proposed in this paper can solve the problems of line segmentation in Tibetan ancient documents, such as partial adhesion and stroke broken, a further improve the accuracy of line segmentation.

Agroecological practices for sustainable agriculture in India: A review

Paper ID- AMA-16-05-2022-11378

The increasing population will require more food to be consumed in the upcoming time due to which a need of new farming practices is required. Thus we here are enlisting the various agro ecological practices for sustainable agriculture in India. We then analyses the advantages and disadvantages for all these practices and the potential for the future use. Our major findings are firstly 9 categories of agroecological practices, secondly integration of these agroecological practices and the future prospects of all of these practices.
