A field experiment was conducted during 1999–2011, on fixed site at Latur, to assess the nutrient requirement of soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.]–sunflower (Helianthus annuus L.) cropping system with different combinations of organic and inorganic nutrient management in Vertisols. Twelve treatment combinations were applied on cropping system basis for rainy (kharif) season soybean followed by winter (rabi) sunflower. Application of 100% recommended NPK + FYM 5 t/ha to kharif soybean and 100% recommended NPK to rabi sunflower recorded higher seed yield of soybean (2.33 t/ha), sunflower (1.44 kg/ha) and total system productivity in terms of sunflowerequivalent yield (3.33 t/ha). This combination also showed higher production efficiency (16.7 kg/ha/day) sustainable-yield index (0.50), and net monetary returns (₹41.1 × 103/ha), and was statistically similar to the application of 150% NPK to both the crops in sequence. Application of FYM 5 t/ha continuously over the period of 13 years along with 100% NPK to kharif soybean and 100% NPK to rabi sunflower in sequence improved the soil fertility in terms of organic carbon, available nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. © 2015, Indian Society of Agronomy.

Among various treatments, cypermethrin 0.01 per cent had maximum ovicidal action (97.12%) which was significantly superior to all the treatments. Quinalphos 0.05 per cent and chlorpyriphos 0.08 per cent ranked second most effective treatments achieving 96.57 and 94.10 per cent egg mortality. Neem leaves extract suspension 5 per cent (32.75%) and pudina leaves extract suspension 5 per cent (41.15%) were least toxic on the eggs of E. vittella.

Downy mildew, Plasmopara halstedii (Ferl.) Berl. & de Toni of sunflower (Helianthus annuus L.) is a destructive disease occurring in almost all sunflower growing countries in the world except Australia. During 1988 this disease was noticed in Marathwada region of Maharashtra State, India for the first time and its spread is now being reported from major sunflower growing states of India like Andhra Pradesh, Karanataka, Maharashtra, Tamilnadu and Punjab. The disease is seed and soil borne and use of chemical method can solve the problem of downy mildew, but the best way is to use resistant hybrids to combat the disease. At Oilseeds Research Station, Latur (M.S.) India, a new sunflower downy mildew resistant hybrid coined as LSFH-171 was developed and now it has been released for commercial cultivation for the benefit of the farmers in major sunflower growing states of India.

Combining ability analysis of 20 hybrids developed through line x tester mating design in groundnut. Additive gene action was predominant for all the characters studied except for harvest index and pod yield/plant. The genotypes ICGV 07240 and TVG 0856 recorded significant gca effects along with high mean for plant height, root length, harvest index and pod yield/plant. Hence, these genotypes were categorized as good combiners. Based on the mean and gca effects involving the above parents in crossing programme could result in improvement in pod yield. Among the crosses, ICGV 07240 x JDR 65 registered significant sca effects along with mean. Hence pedigree breeding method could be adopted to isolate desirable recombinants. However, the cross, TVG 0831 x RG 426 involved parents with poor combiners. Hence, biparental mating followed by selection is recommended for the identification of desirable recombinants.

Five lines and ten testers were crossed in line x tester manner to develop 50 F1 hybrids. ANOVA showed significant differences among the environments and genotypes for all characters. Greater stability was observed in gca values for all the characters. σ2GCA/σ2SCA ratio revealed preponderance of additive gene action for seed yield per plant, capsules per plant, capsule length and 1000-seed weight. The preponderance of non-additive gene action was recorded for the rest, suggesting the importance of both additive and non-additive gene actions for inheritance of component traits. The parent G. Til-3 was found good general combiner for all the traits except earliness characters where Phule Til 1 manifested good gca for days to 50% flowering and days to maturity. Among the male parents, JLS-116, AKT-101, JLS-9707-2 and JLS-110-12 were good general combiners for seed yield per plant as well as most of the yield components. The crosses G. Til-3 x AKT-64, Phule Til No.1 x JLS-116 and Patan-64 x AKT-101 manifested significant, higher and desirable sca effect for seed yield per plant as well as important yield components.

A Field experiment was conducted at Oilseeds Research Station, Latur (M.S.) India during kharif 2007 and 2008, to study the efficacy of thiamethoxam 30FS seed treatment against early sucking pests, beneficial insects and impact on germination in sunflower (Helianthus annus L). Thiamethoxam 30 FS @ 10 ml/kg seed (3 g a.i/kg seed) was found superior against early sucking pests (thrips, leaf hoppers, white flies and aphids) in sunflower crop as compared to control. Thiamethoxam 30 FS was found safer to natural enemies and also did not exhibit any phytotoxicity even at higher doses tested suggesting that it is safe to sunflower crop.

Conservation of Deo-rahati (sacred grove) in India has ancient roots from Vedic period. Even in modern days ethnic groups conserve religiously preserved forest patches through their customs, taboos, and local festivals associated with the deities. Therefore, these forest pockets serve the vital function of conserving biological diversity and natural water streams. There is an urgent need of awareness and plantation around the sacred groves to fulfill the need of local people and provide protection to sacred groves.

An investigation was conducted to evaluate the efficacy of newer insecticides against defoliators and leafminer pests of groundnut. Amongst various treatments the treatment of Spinosad 45%SC was found to be significantly superior over all the treatments for control of defoliators and leafminer larvae and was followed by the treatment of Emamectin benzoate 5% SC, Thiodicarb 75 % WP, Indoxicarb 14.5% SC,Quinolphos 25% EC and Endosulphan 35% EC. The highest pod yield was recorded with the treatment of Spinosad 45% SC (i.e. 2050 kg/ha) treatment and was at par with the treatment of Emamectin benzoate 5% SC, Thiodicarb 75% WP and Indoxicarb 14.5% SC.

Sunflower necrosis disease (SND), observed during 1997 in India has now become established in all major sunflower-growing states and has assumed the status of disease of national importance, thereby threathening sunflower cultivation in general. As It is a new disease, reliable resistance sources are still under Investigation. A new insecticide thiomethoxam (Cruiser 70 W.S.) was tested for three years at Oilseeds Research Station, Latur (M.S.), India, to manage the necrosis disease in the current sunflower production. The three-year data (2006-2008) revealed that the sunflower necrosis disease can be managed by treating seeds with thiomethoxam at 4 g/kg along with two sprays of the chemical at 0.05% 30 & 45 DAS.
