Performance of winter pulses under residual soil fertility with different crop establishment techniques in rice fallow in Meghalaya

Paper ID- AMA-18-04-2023-12202

A field experiment conducted in rice fallow to identify suitable winter pulses under residual soil fertility with different crop establishment techniques. The experiment was conducted in a split plot design with two nutrient management in kharif rice (organic (FYM equivalent to the recommended dose of nitrogen of 80 kg/ha) and integrated nutrient management (50% organic and 50% chemical fertilizer)) with a combination of three crop establishment techniques in winter pulses (utera, flat bed line sowing, and raised bed sowing), and four winter pulses (lathyrus, chickpea, lentil and field pea) in sub plot with three replications. Results showed that lathyrus, field pea and lentil could be the potential winter pulses to utilise residual nutrients in low land rice fallow Meghalaya. Raised bed and utera sowing are suitable crop establishment techniques in Meghalaya's high rainfall region. Productivity of all the winter pulses was higher in raised beds, which was primarily attributed to higher dry matter, branch/plant, and yield attributes such as grain weight/plant, which ultimately led to higher grains as well as straw yield. Hence, lathyrus, field pea and lentil could be included in rice fallows, ideally with raised beds and utera for higher yield in Meghalaya.

In vitro studies in Gymnema sylvestre (Gudmar)-A high value medicinal plant

Paper ID- AMA-18-04-2023-12201

Gymnema sylvestre R.Br. (syn. Periploca sylvestris Retz), sometimes referred to as Gudmar, is a main medicinal plant utilised under various medical systems as a treatment for the curing of diabetes mellitus. The culture of selected explants namely shoot apex, nodal stem, leaf and inflorescence on five selected media having MS basal salts supplement with several concentrations of cytokinins (KIN and BAP) plant growth regulators, effected on the establishment of aseptic culture, swelling of explants, disorganized proliferation of cells from the cultured explants and shoot bud growth from the shoot apex and nodal stem explants. The best establishment of aseptic culture was observed on medium M5 (MS + 1.5 “mgl-1” BAP + 0.5 “mgl-1” KIN). The highest swelling of the cultured explants was observed on medium M4 (MS + 2.0 “mgl-1” BAP + 1.0 “mgl-1” KIN). The best caulogenesis was observed on medium M3 (MS + 2.0 “mgl-1” BAP + 0.5 “mgl-1” KIN). Cultured explants leaf were the best for establishment of cultures, swelling and caulogenesis induction. The development of existing shoot bud was the maximum in medium M5 and shoot apex showed better shoot growth compared to nodal stem. The developed shoots can be used as source of new explants and their culture will result in propagule multiplication. Finally, the in vitro developed shoots can be rooted leading to the establishment of micropropagation method in this important remedial plant.

Physiological and bio chemical modification through bio inducer in tube rose infected with root knot nematode (Meloidogyne incognita)

Paper ID- AMA-18-04-2023-12199

The main aim for this study is to investigate on physiological and bio chemical modification through bio inducer in tube rose infected with root knot nematode, Meloidogyne incognita. Two pot culture experiments was carried out during 2015-2018 for assessment of bio chemicals changes induced by selected bio stimulant in tube rose infected with root knot nematode, M. incognita. In this study bulbs of tuberose var. prajwalwas planted at the rate of 1 bulb/pot with three replications and each replication consist of two pots. The juveniles (1juvinile/g of soil) was inoculated under controlled condition. The pots wastreated with ascorbic acid - corm soaking (24hrs)+ foliar spray (45 & 90 DAP) with various concentration viz.,250 ppm,500 ppm and 1000 ppm, Humic Acid - corm Soaking (24hrs)+ foliar spray (45 & 90 DAP) 1,2 and 3percent, salicylic acid - corm soaking (24hrs)+ foliar spray (45 & 90 DAP)50 ppm, 100ppm and200 ppm, monocrotophos 0.2% - corm soaking (24hrs)+ foliar spray (45 & 90 DAP). Field experiments was conducted at farm of RRS, Paiyur during the period of 2016-2017 The best performed five treatments were callout from pot culture experiments I & II and further experiment was conducted at field conditions in split plot (3mX3m) with three replications. The standard cultural practices were followed as recommended by Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Coimbatore. The observation viz., Stalk length (Cm), Inflorescences length (cm), Stalk weight(g),Total number of florets, Nematode population in root(5g), Nematode population in soil (200cc), gall index and yield were recorded.

Influence of Pruning and Integrated Nutrient Management on Custard Apple (Annona Squamosa L.)

Paper ID- AMA-17-04-2023-12198

An investigation was carried out at Fruit Research Station, Madhadi Baugh Farm, Department of Fruit science, College of Horticulture, Junagadh Agricultural University, Junagadh during April 2019 to November 2020. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with Factorial concept (FRBD) consisting three factors with three replications each. The treatment comprised with three levels of pruning and eight treatments of integrated nutrient management. The yield and yield attributes and quality parameters were significantly influenced by various level of pruning. Maximum fruit yield (2.44 t/ha), average weight of fruit (174.11 g), fruit length (6.59 cm), fruit girth (6.83 cm), maximum pulp weight (104.45 g), pulp: seed ratio (8.18), pulp: rag ratio (1.82), minimum number of seed (25.55), weight of seed (13.42 g), maximum total sugar (22.33%), reducing sugar (18.47 %), non-reducing sugar content (3.83%), ascorbic acid (21.55 mg/100g), TSS (22.31°Brix) and minimum acidity (0.25%) were noted in medium pruning at 20 cm (P3). Whereas, minimum days to flower initiation (73.41) was recorded with unpruned tree (P1). The quality parameters were also significantly influenced by organic manures are maximum total sugar (23.34%), reducing sugar (19.34%), ascorbic acid (23.02 mg/100g), TSS (22.74 °Brix) and minimum acidity (0.25%) were recorded in 100% RDN + 10 kg FYM + Azotobacter 15 ml + PSB 15 ml + Micronutrient grade-IV (0.5%) + GA3 25 ppm (F2).

Challenges, Scope, and upcoming strategies for Direct Seeding of Rice: A Global Meta-analysis

Paper ID- AMA-15-04-2023-12195

In the Indo-Gangetic Plains of South Asia, the predominant cropping system occupies 13.5 million hectares and consists of rice and wheat. Rice cultivation using the traditional puddle transplanted method requires a lot of water, capital, and energy. The structural integrity of the soil will deteriorate as a result of this system. Additionally, wheat yields are affected by aeration stress because of the formation of hard pans during the rice growing season. Growing plants on a mat-type nursery require specific expertise, and learning how to operate a transplanter puts mechanical transplanting in the background as a secondary choice. Sustainable rice production is possible with the use of direct sowing with zero or reduced tillage if the issues of weeds, nutritional deficiencies, worms, and the establishment of an aerobic variety are dealt with. Direct seeding of rice is an option for sustainable rice production. In addition, rice grown via direct seeding results in lower emissions of greenhouse gases. In this article, we examine the efficacy of directly seeding rice in soils with varying textures and a variety of agroclimatic conditions, as well as the primary challenges that this method presents.
