Improvement in profitability of mustard through conjunctive use of organic manures, inorganic fertilizer and beneficial microbes in semi arid region of the India

Paper ID- AMA-06-12-2022-11862

A study was carried out on mustard crop during Rabi season 2020-21. The experiments were conducted on heavy clay soil at Agriculture Research Farm, College of Agriculture, Banda University of Agriculture & Technology, Banda. The experimental design was randomized block design with eight integrated nutrient management options. All treatments were replicated thrice. The experimental results revealed that application of 125% and 100 % RDF along with FYM and biofertilizer consortia increased significantly, number of pods per plant, height per plant, and chemical properties, thereby increased grain yield of mustard significantly in comparison to farmers fertilizer practice (T1), sole application of 100 % RDF (T2) and 50 % reduction of RDF along with FYM and biofertilizer consortia (T8). A slight improvement in organic carbon and available phosphorus was observed from the initial value. Therefore, study recommends, the integration of FYM and beneficial microbes with exiting recommended dose of fertilizer in poor fertile soils during first year.

Heterosis For Fodder Yield and its Contributing Traits in Dual Purpose Sorghum (Sorghum Bicolor (L.) Moench) Hybrids

Paper ID- AMA-05-12-2022-11860

An experiment was conducted to assess the extent of heterosis for fodder yield and its contributing traits in sorghum (Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench) crosses using line x tester mating design. Thirty hybrids derived from mating five testers with six lines in L x T design along with their parents and two checks viz., CSH 15 R and CSV 22 R were evaluated at Sorghum Research Station, VNMKV., Parbhani (Maharashtra), India. Observations were recorded on randomly selected 5 five plants in each replication for grain yield and its contributing characters. Amongst 30 hybrids evaluated, three hybrids viz., Phule Anuradha x PBMR 3, Phule Anuradha x PBMR 1 and ICSR 196 x PBMR 3 recorded lowest negative heterosis percentage for days to 50% flowering over standard hybrid check (CHS 15 R), varietal check (CSV 22 R) and better parent. In addition the crosses; Parbhani Moti x PBMR 5, PMS 71B x PBMR 5, CSV 29R x PBMR 3, MS 104B x PBMR 3, ICSR 196 x PBMR 3 and Phule Anuradha x PBMR 3 possessed significantly desirable heterosis and per se performance for fodder yield per plant. Parbhani Moti x PBMR 5, PMS 71B x PBMR 5 and ICSR 196 x PBMR 3 have also shown good perse performance and heterosis for fodder contributing traits plant height, no. of leaves, leaf area, biomass and stem girth. Hence this cross is found tobe promising for fodder quality and palatability traits. While hybrids CSV 29 R x PBMR 3, Parbhani Moti X PBMR 4, Phule Anuradha x PBMR 4, Parbhani Moti x PBMR 1 and MS 104B x PBMR 3 expressed significant superiority for heterobeltiosis and standard heterosis for grain yield. Cross CSV 29 R x PBMR 3 and Parbhani Moti x Pbmr 5 are promising for developing dual purpose genotypes.

Classic and intelligent techniques aim to locate and track the maximum power point of photovoltaic (PV) systems. However, the nonlinear nature of PV arrays regarding ambient conditions and unstable climatic factors hinders the extraction of the maximum power provided by the PV modules. As a result, the PV modules can extract a false MPP and convert less solar energy into electrical energy. Moreover, the choice of the DC-DC converter is essential because it needs to track the MPP regardless of the ambient conditions. This paper presents a solution to design a control scheme for a grid-connected photovoltaic (PV) system to solve the maximum power point tracking (MPPT) problem. The designed control structure solves the nonlinear problems in the model of the inverters.

Clinical hobby in mutation breeding has extensively decreased for the duration of the final 15 years. Interest in research has shifted in the direction of improvement and application of molecular techniques as gear in breeding and transformation of vegetation. Such strategies permit a more directed technique in pursuance of the breeding goal. Molecular strategies, however, generate high developmental costs and requirestate-of-the-art equipment and a pretty trained body of workers. The investment in such steeply priced. Techniques does no longer appear good enough in case of many decorative species with their restricted financial significance as compared to agricultural vegetation and their every now and then very quick advertising durations in result of permanent demand for brand new elegant products. Further, genetically modified decorative flora are not advertised in Europe at the time being because of low popularity of clients and the unsure prison scenario. Alternatively, decorative flora appear like best systems for mutation breeding as many characters of economic hobby, i.e. Flower traits or the boom addiction are without difficulty monitored after mutagenic treatment. Moreover, many ornamental species are heterozygous and regularly propagated vegetatively. Therefore permitting the detection, choice and conservation of mutants within the M1-technology. Suitable techniques in mutation induction as utility of fractionated doses and recurrent irradiation combined with in vitro lifestyle strategies may additionally lead to fast achievement additionally in homozygous, polyploid species. Even with its accidental character, mutation induction is still an appealing technique for developing genetic variability in ornamentals each time the preferred characters can be predicted in the genetic scope of a given species. Realistic mutation breeding nowadays has end up a habitual approach in many vegetatively propagated ornamental vegetation and is being used by business breeding organizations.

Effectiveness of different packages against some stored product insects

Paper ID- AMA-04-12-2022-11856

The current study evaluated the effect of packing materials on tested insects. All packages resist the penetration of T. castaneum adults for 15 days post treatment (release of insects). The examination of the all packing materials illustrates that T. castaneum adults failed to penetrate inside the package and there are no any holes except sack cloth package where twenty T. castaneum adults enabled to enter inside after five weeks. T. castaneum could not penetrate any of the packages. Also there were no holes in any of the packages. The average number of the rusty flour beetle inside all types of tested packages indicated that there was no development of it, as its number ranged between 1 to 7.33 compared to the average number inside. The findings indicated to the effectiveness of the all packages used compared to sackcloth bag. Additionally results showed that both adults and larvae of T. castaneum failed to puncture any of the used packages. There is no any holes or insect adults inside the all packages, but the all S. oryzae adults succeeded to enter into sack cloth package. The all packages under study showed high effectiveness against T. castaneum and its larvae, followed by S. oryzae and R. dominica.
