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.

Management Package for Sucking Pest of Cotton Under High Density Planting System

Paper ID- AMA-23-02-2023-12041

The field experiment was conducted to study the management package for sucking pest under high density planting system in cotton during winter 2018-2019 (August 2018 to January 2019) and summer 2019 (February to July) at Cotton Research Station, Srivilliputtur. The results revealed that mean population of sucking pests viz., leafhopper, thrips, whitefly and number of whitefly per traps was minimum (4.00 and 1.09 /3leaves;1.52 and 1.38 /3leaves;1.44 and 0.84 /3leaves and 13.88 and 12.40/traps) and yield was high (18.65 and 17.53 q/ha) q/ha) in treatment (T5) of ST with Beaveria bassisana @ 10 g/kg of seed + soil application of neem cake @ 250 kg/ha + yellow sticky trap @ 40 nos./acre + release of green lacewing @ 1 lakh eggs/ha at 30 DAS + need based spray of Dinotefuran 20 % SG@ 150 g/ha or Flonicamid 50% WG @ 150 g/ha or azadirachtin 10000ppm @ 1 lit./ha on 20,35,50, and 65 DAS followed by T4 (16.54 q/ha and 15.44q/ha), T2 (16.50 q/ha and 15.95 q/ha) and compared to untreated check (10.98q/ha and 10.65 q/ha) and BCR (3.01 and 2.89) under high density planting system on cotton (HDPS).

Determination of Relationships between Plant Physical Characteristics for Yield Prediction Accuracy in Sugar Beet

Paper ID- AMA-21-02-2023-12039

In agricultural production, accurate crop yield and quality estimation in the early period are important factors in post-harvest planning. Although an acceptable accurate yield estimation is still made using terrestrial measurement methods, these methods are costly and time-consuming. The main difficulty in estimating yield and quality in products such as sugar beet is that the underground production section and its development cannot be physically monitored. The development status of the plant is generally monitored through the leaves. If a concrete relationship is deciphered between the plant indices and the growth stages of the plant, yield, and quality parameters can be monitored during the development period. To determine the physical relationships, the data of the four major production regions where 18% of Turkey's sugar production is realized were used for 2010-2020. In conclusion, the beet leaf reaches its maximum in the second half of July. In this period, the leaf-root relationship is medium-high, and leaf-sugar and leaf-yield relations are moderate. During the development of beet, root-sugar, and root-yield relationships are also at a medium-high level. When the rate of change is used together with the root/leaf ratio determined by months, it shows that accurate yield estimates can be made with these data.

Impact And Significance of CRM in Rural Banking – A Comprehensive Study

Paper ID- AMA-20-02-2023-12035

Customer relationship management (CRM) is a key strategy for rural banks to improve their customer service and increase customer satisfaction. In rural areas, where access to financial services is limited, rural banks play a crucial role in providing financial services to the rural population. CRM systems can help rural banks better understand their customers and provide tailored services, thereby increasing customer loyalty. The main goal of this paper is to review the role of CRM in rural banking and to discuss the recent trends and developments. CRM is a strategy and process that aims to understand, predict and manage the needs of customers in order to improve their satisfaction and loyalty. Rural banking, on the other hand, refers to the delivery of financial services to rural areas and is an important aspect of rural development. This study focuses on the challenges rural banks face in managing their customer relationships, the benefits of CRM for rural banks, and the recent trends and advancements in rural banking. The literature review section presents a comprehensive overview of the existing research on CRM in the banking sector. Regional rural and Co-operative banks are exclusively located in rural areas and are controlled by a small number of employees; they also provide good services within their capacity, but their CRM implementation is less effective than that of other banks. In order to retain and acquire the banking customer, the top management must collaborate with their staff to improve their services by providing information in local/regional languages and addressing complaints in a timely manner. In addition, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) is considering a new way to provide customers with the option of portability of their bank account from one bank to another for better services. It is time for upper management to introduce new technological initiatives in order to serve customers more effectively and efficiently.
