Finger Millet cultivation in association with Eucalyptus field bund plantation

Paper ID- AMA-25-02-2023-12052

Eucalyptus acceptance in agroforestry is also based on its high timber value; the wood of eucalyptus is utilized in pulp, paper, Plywood and in packaging industry and any kind of construction work. Investigations of the interactions between trees and crops in traditional agroforestry studies in village muliaput, Durkaguda and Luhaba, District Koraput, Odisha, showed that the growth parameters of Eucalyptus decreased under the shade of Eucalyptus. Plant height found minimum at under the shade of Eucalyptus i.e., (56.63 cm, 102 cm, 111.91 cm) in 30 DAT, 60 DAT, 90 DAT and the control was maximum (65.7 cm, 105.36 cm and 118.47 cm) in 30 DAT, 60 DAT, 90 DAT. Number of effective tillers per meter of row length at harvest was found maximum (27.03) at control and minimum (23.56) at under the shade of Eucalyptus. Number of fingers per ear head at harvest was significantly highest in control (7.46) i.e. control condition and lowest in under shade of Eucalyptus (6.28). Length of finger at harvest was found maximum (7.12 cm) at control and minimum (5.72 cm) at under the shade of Eucalyptus. The grain yield (2438 kg ha-1 & straw yield (7011 kg ha-1) significantly highest at control and lowest grain yield (2313 kg ha-1) & straw yield (6365 kg ha-1) under the shade of Eucalyptus because the plant species under the agroforestry system depends on the same supply of growth and development resources, such as light, water, nutrients and thus the performance of the other components as well as the system as a whole will impact one component of the system. It is reasonable to believe that the decline may be related to the reduced availability of light together along with competition. But On the other way Eucalyptus tree gives extra income to the farmers after harvesting the tree crop.

The leaf quality characters were studied in thirteen mulberry accessions viz., ME-27, Srinagar local, C-776, Karanahalli, MI-79, Morus indica, SB-21, V-1, S-30, ME-144, MI-139, MI-506 and TB-21. V-1 was taken as control. The moisture content (76.05%), moisture retention capacity (MRC) after 3 hours (75.88%), 6 h (72.85%), 9 h (69.75%), and 24 h (61.26%) were significantly maximum in TB-21. MRC after 12 h (66.86%) was higher in V-1. The moisture content and MRC were minimum in MI-506 and Srinagar local. The biochemical analysis of leaves reveled that total nitrogen, crude protein, protein, total amino acids, starch, sugar, total carbohydrates, total chlorophyll content were found to be high in TB-21, ME-27 and MI-79, whereas they were low in Srinagar local and C-776. Crude fibre was higher in ME-17 and ME-144. Total ash was higher in TB-21 and MI-79. Hence, TB-21, ME-27 and MI-79 can be further evaluated in preliminary yield trial for growth, yield and silkworm rearing performance.

An accelerated testing model for the Analysis of Progressive Hybrid Censored Simulated Competing Factors Agricultural Data based on constant stress

Paper ID- AMA-23-02-2023-12049

Risk has always existed in agriculture. Every day, farmers take risks and make decisions that have an influence on their farming operations. The weather can change, there can be a crop failure, crop production price levels can drop, contracted workforce might not be available when it's most needed, machinery and tools can fail when it's most crucial and national policy can change in an instant. These are just a few of the numerous factors that can affect farmer decisions. Each of these risks has an effect on how profitable their farm is. To ensure that the finished product meets industry and consumer standards, precise dependability indicators must be established early in the development cycle. One such metric is the product's long-term failure rate, which is sometimes expressed as mean time before failure (MTBF). The MBTF for extremely reliable industrial systems is far greater than the period used to demonstrate this metric in a lab setting under real-world field usage conditions. Increasing the test failure rate is generally desirable and practical, but it can be somewhat useful on occasion. ALT involves stress testing a product under conditions that are more demanding than typical field usage conditions in order to accelerate the failure-discovery process. In this research, we have explored a new step stress competitive life model using a type-I progressive hybrid censoring technique. The Rayleigh distribution is assumed to be followed by the items' failure lifespan. The acceleration factor and distributional parameters are determined via the maximum likelihood estimation technique. The interval estimates are also obtained for the same circumstance. The validity of the model has been examined using simulated data.

Evaluation of Different Dual Purpose Fenugreek Genotypes for Growth, Yield and quality attributes

Paper ID- AMA-23-02-2023-12046

The experiment was carried out at the Horticulture Research Farm, R.A.K College of Agriculture, Sehore (M.P.) during Rabi season 2019-2020 and 2020-2021. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design with eight treatments and three replications during the month of November for both years. Various Growth and yields parameters were evaluated in this experiment. In the evaluation of different genotypes of fenugreek for growth parameters. Growth parameters such as germination percentage, plant height, number of leaves per plant, number of branches per plant, leaf area and leaf area index were also found significant compared to check. Different genotypes of fenugreek for yield and yield parameters, the genotype Lajabab found significantly superior in earliest first pod initiation, 50% pod set and earliest seed maturation yield per plot and yield per hectare, fresh weight of leaves followed by Saryu Plume-55.

Ecological Engineering methods for the management of Rice Black bug, Scotinophara lurida Burmeister (Pentatomidae: Hemiptera): an emerging pest in rice

Paper ID- AMA-23-02-2023-12042

Stinkbugs of the genus Scotinophara are common pests of rice in several Asian countries. Of the four Scotinophara sp. present on rice in India, only S. lurida (F.) was reported as a serious pests. Rice Black bug (RBB), Scotinophara lurida Burmeister (Pentatomidae: Hemiptera) movement in the rice ecosystem was monitored at Tamil Nadu Rice Research Institute, Aduthurai during the period from 2011 to 2021. Maximum light trap catches was observed in the month of July to September immediately after the receipt of rainfall, which favoured the brood emergence of black bug. Brood emergence and flight activity of black bug is affected by the rainfall. Application of Azolla @ 25 kg/ha, lemon grass as bund crop and Neem oil (3%) as foliar Spray on 10, 30, 60 days after transplanting (DAT) showed minimum incidence of the black bug and maximum yield (5507 kg/ha.) when compared to control (4996 kg/ha.). Thus it can be concluded that these information can be included in the integrated black bug management practices.
