The experiments were conducted at the village- Rawar, near College of Agriculture, Gwalior (M.P.), India during two consecutive years of Kharif seasons in 2013-14 and 2014-15 to evaluate the effect of planting methods, organic nutrient sources and biofertilizers on quality and economics of Kharif onion in Gwalior conditions. The results of the experiment was revealed that the ridge method of planting resulted in significantly highest protein content (6.34%) over furrow and flat method of planting and maximum TSS (12.52%) was also recorded with ridge method, which was at par with rest of both sowing methods. The interactions were found not significant response with these parameters. Seedlings inoculated with PSB transplanted on ridges with 25.0 t FYM/ha and PSB 5 kg/ha (P3S2B1) accrued the highest net monetary return amounting Rs. 97060/ha followed by P3S2B2 (Rs. 93790/ha) and P3S1B1 (Rs. 91260/ha) while the highest B: C ratio of 2.65 was obtained with the treatment combination ridge planting with 12.5 t FYM/ha and PSB 5 kg/ha closely followed by P3S1B2 (2.58), P3S2B1 (2.57) and P3S2B2 (2.52).

The study was conducted in purposively selected block Morar of Gwalior district, Madhya Pradesh (India) during 2010-11 in order to know the entrepreneurial behaviour of potato grower in terms of their socio-personal, socio economic, communicational and psychological. The results of the study revealed that majority of the respondents exhibited medium level (65.00%) to high level (20.00%) of entrepreneurial behaviour, while very few of them exhibited low level (15.00%) of entrepreneurial behaviour. The study further revealed that among fifteen independent variables, three variables viz., education, farming experience, socio- political participation, farming experience, socio political participation, area under potato, annual income, farm mechanization, irrigation potentiality, extension participation, mass media exposure, cosmo politeness, economic motivation, knowledge about potato production technology, scientific orientation and market orientation showed positive and significant relationship at 0.01 level of probability with entrepreneurial behaviour. Whereas, one variable viz., family size did not establish any significant relationship with entrepreneurial behaviour.

The studies were conducted in six villages of Ganj Basoda block of Vidisha district (Madhya Pradesh). It is indicated that cent percent chickpea producers expressed the problems of increased insect pest incidence enforced them to use excess insecticide dosages for their management, Farmers also felt that their inability to read the instruction given by manufactures on the label of containers, difficulty of diagnosis of insect pest, adulteration and inefficacy of the insecticides, lack of knowledge about IPM technology, insecticides application equipments, mixing of two or more insecticides/chemicals and technical guidance made them to deviate from the optimum use of insecticide. Organising more number of extension programes like trainings kisan melas, field days, seminars, workshop, interface, demonstrations and regular visits on farmers filed by scientist and extension personnel, checking of adulteration efficacy of the insecticides,and development of insect pest tolerance varieties is requires. Awareness of farmers in respect of natural enemies of insect pest, broadcasting and telecasting radio and television programmes on optimum / need based use of insecticides and hazardous of indiscriminate use of insecticide and need of timely technical guidance were some of the suggestions expressed by chickpea producers.

A field experiment was conducted during the winter season of 2010–11 and 2011–12 at Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh, to evaluate performance of different cultivars of wheat [Triticum aestivum (L.) emend. Fiori & Paol.] under restricted irrigations on alluvial soils. The treatments were 18 combinations of 3 irrigation levels (no irrigation, 1 irrigation and 2 irrigations) and 6 wheat genotypes (‘HI 1572’, ‘HI 1500’, ‘Lok 1’, ‘MP 3288’, ‘A 9-30-1’ and ‘HI 8627’). A significant increase was observed in chlorophyll content index, root-development parameters (length, volume and diameter), yield attributes and grain yield in all the varieties with first irrigation. The increase in these characters owing to second irrigation was also significant, but the magnitude was relatively low. Among the different genotypes, ‘HI 1572’ responded more to irrigation than the others and it was closely followed by ‘MP 3288’. Significant decrease in the water-use efficiency was recorded with the increase in water application and highest wateruse efficiency was recorded in variety ‘HI 1572’, which was closely followed by ‘MP 3288’. © 2014, Indian Journal of Agronomy.

As regards to the interaction effect out of the total Sixteen treatment combinations treatment T16 i.e. P3 F1 B1application of 75kg Phosphorus along with FYM @ 5tone and inoculation of seed with PSB, found significantly the better in respect of growth the Plant and seed yield in cowpea. However, treatment T14 (P2F1 B1 in application of 50kg P2 O5, 5 tones FYM and seed inoculation with PSB showed statistically at par results in all respects. The application of Phosphorus, FYM and PSB gave significantly results in respect of seed yield of cowpea per hectare. Further, significantly the maximum (18.51 per ha) seed yield of cowpea has been produced by the plant supplied with 75kg P2 O5, 5 tone FYM and seed inoculation with PSB (P3 F1B1) whereas it was reported minimum (12.12q/ha), seed yield of cowpea per hectare by the control treatment combination (P0 F0 B0). Treatment T16 significantly the maximum (18.51q/ha) seed yield of cowpea. Gross Monetary returns (Rs.46275), Net monetary return (Rs. 25063) and B: C ratio (2.18) was registered by the treatment T16 (application of 75kg P2O5,5 tone FYM and seed inoculation with PSB). However, it was noticed statistically at par with the treatment T (application of 50kg P2O5, 5 tones FYM and seed inoculation with PSB), Where in Gross monetary returns (Rs.44600), Net Monetary return (Rs.23625) and B: C ratio (2:12) was recorded. © Copyright EM International.

Probiotic feeding leads to the development of stable type of micro flora which helps the bird to resist infections noticeably in the intestinal tract and helps in several ways. With this objective present study was under taken to evaluate the effect of probiotic on performance of commercial broiler chicks. In study two groups one without probiotic (P0) and another with Probiotic (P) supplementation were considered for the study. The experiment consisted of two replicates for probiotic groups. The performance of broiler was evaluated in terms of growth, feed efficiency and percent mortality at 6th week of age. Data were analyzed on survivor and equal number of bird's per subclass basis. Analysis of variance revealed that the difference between replicates were not significant for the different traits under study as such all subsequent analysis was performed on combined sex basis. Inclusion of probiotic in diet also affected highly significantly both the sexes for this age of body weight. Broiler group fed with, diet P (with Probiotic) were significantly heavier than the group fed with, diet P0 (without Probiotic). The inclusion of probiotics showed increased feed efficiency, better quality of broiler meat. The probiotic exerted highly significant effect on 2nd, 3rd and 5th weekly feed efficiency and also on overall feed efficiency. Overall performance of the broilers feded with the diet containing probiotics was found better in terms of feed efficiency, growth and meat quality. It might be due to suppressive effect of probiotic on unwanted organism and promotion of health status of the broilers. © 2011 Knowledgia Review, Malaysia.

Soil physical quality is one of the three important aspects of soil quality, besides biological and chemical quality. Decline in soil physical quality can have serious consequences on biological and chemical properties thereby making it relevant to study soil physical quality for maintaining soil health in long run. Changes in this property of soil affect the productivity of crops. In this investigation, Dexter S theory has been applied to evaluate the soil physical quality in maize-wheat system under two tillage/land configurations namely raised bed planting (BP) and conventional tillage (CT) and nine nutrient treatments viz (1) T1 - control (crop without fertilizer), (2) T2 - 100 % recommended dose of nitrogen (N), phosphorous (P) and potassium (K), (3) T3 - 100 % NPK (25 % N substituted by farmyard manure (FYM)), (4) T4 - 100 % NPK + green manure (Sesbania), (5) T5 - 100 % NPK (25 % N substituted by biofertilizer), (6) T6 - 100 % NPK (25 % N substituted by sewage sludge), (7) T7 - 100 % NPK + crop residue incorporated (from previous crop), (8) T8 - 100 % organic source (50 % FYM + 25 % bio-fertilizer + 25 % crop residue), and (9) T9 - no crop no fertilizer; were identified for this study. BP significantly improved the soil physical quality compared to CT. Within nutrient treatments, S index was highest in T8 followed by the T5, whereas lowest in T 1. There is high and significant correlation between S index and soil physical parameter and crop yield which shows that S index can be used effectively for quantifying soil physical quality under diverse environments vis-à-vis crop yield. © 2014 The National Academy of Sciences, India.
