Effect of LCC based nitrogen application on nutrient uptake and use efficiency in wheat under irrigated sub tropics of Jammu

Paper ID- AMA-22-05-2021-10575

A two-year field experiment was conducted to investigate the effect of leaf colour chart (LCC) and chlorophyll meter (SPAD meter) based nitrogen fertilization on nutrient uptake, use efficiency and productivity of wheat crop under irrigated sub tropics of Jammu. The investigation conducted at Divisional Research Farm of Agronomy, Faculty of Agriculture, Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology of Jammu, Main campus Chatha during Rabi 2018-19 and Rabi 2019-20. Experiment was laid out in randomized block design with four replications and six treatments viz. control, nitrogen application based on LCC ≤ 3, nitrogen application based on LCC ≤ 4, nitrogen application based on LCC ≤ 5, sufficiency index based nitrogen application and recommended dose of fertilizer (100:50:25:37.5 kg/ha N:P2O5:K2O:S) along with well fertilized reference plot with 150 per cent recommended dose of nitrogen (150:50:25:37.5 kg/ha N:P2O5:K2O:S) for calculating sufficiency index. Among different treatments of nitrogen management, significantly highest yield and nutrient uptake were recorded with LCC ≤ 5 based nitrogen application. However, sufficiency index based nitrogen application recorded numerically higher nitrogen use efficiency and apparent recovery of nitrogen whereas recommended dose of nitrogen application recorded maximum physiological efficiency.

Dissipation Patterns and Effect of Household Processing on Lowering of Tebuconazole Residues in Chili and Soil Using GC-MS/MS

Paper ID- AMA-21-05-2021-10574

The issue of food safety and food security are the two key aspects in our country. Also the food we consume is safer or not is the most important topic of concern now-days. In order to estimate the potential risks due to pesticide exposure from food, it is required to evaluate the level of exposure at the time of consumption. The aim of this study conducted during 2016-17, was to assess the level of Tebuconazole (Folicur 25.9EC @ 125 and 250 g a.iha−1) residues in chili fruit. Gas chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (GC-MS / MS) was used to analyze collected samples. Residues dissipated with time showing a half-life of 1.61 days at a single dose and 2.19 days at double dose after kinetics of first order. The processing is very efficient in reducing tebuconazole residues in chili fruits. By washing with tap water, tebuconazole reduction ranged from 55.71 percent to 30 percent. While the percent reduction of residues on washing with NaCl solution was in the range of 72.38 to 33.33 percent. Results indicate that washing with NaCl solution as better household practice for reducing the residues in the chili fruits for consumption purpose.
