P. Florida, P. eous and P. sajor-caju was cultivated on different agro-wastes viz. paddy straw, wheat straw, sorghum straw, soybean straw, paddy + wheat straw (1:1), paddy + sorghum straw (1:1), paddy + soybean (1:1), wheat + soybean straw (1:1), wheat + soybean straw (1:1) and soybean + sorghum straw (1:1) to determine the effect of these agro waste on yield, growth and biological efficiency. Paddy straw showed significantly highest yield of 1248.3, 1348.7 and 1275.7 g/1.5 kg of dry substrate of P. Florida, P. eous and P. sajor-caju respectively and biological efficiency of 83.22 %, 89.90 % and 84.99 % with minimum days for spwan run completion, pinhead initiation, development of mature fruiting bodies of P. Florida (14, 15 and 15 days), P. eous (18, 19 and 19 days) and P. sajor-caju (21, 24 and 23 days) respectively.

The present investigation entitled estimating genetic variability for grain yield and shootfly resistance components in F4 population of rabi sorghum [Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench]. The experimental material consists of 53 F4 progenies with four checks (Parbhani Moti and Parbhani Jyoti for grain yield assessment and IS 18551 (Resistance Check) and DJ 6514 (Susceptible Check) for shootfly screening nursery). Analysis of variance showed significant genetic variability in the progenies for all traits under study. The lowest days required for maturity in progenies 1076-1 x RSF 19-3-38 (115 days) and highest in 1076-1 × RSF 19-3-08 (124 days). Panicle length was highest in progeny 1071-1 × RSF 16-3-22 (23.03 cm) and lowest in 1076-1 × RSF 12-4-15 (15.42 cm), whereas the panicle girth was highest in progeny 1076-1 × RSF 12-4-09 (14.87). The highest grain yield per plot was observed for 1071-1 × RSF 12-4-13 (1.51 kg). The progenies namely 1071-1 × RSF 12-4-20, 1071-1 × RSF 12-4-04 and 1071-1 × RSF 16-3-13 were recorded at par glossy score with resistant check IS 18551. The character seedling vigour showed at par score with resistant check IS 18551. The genotype viz., 1071-1 × RSF 12-4-08, 1071-1 × RSF 12-4-20, 1071-1 × RSF 12-4-05 and 1071-1 × RSF 16-3-07. Statically at par with resistant check IS 18551. High heritability accompanied with genetic advance recorded in the two traits viz., plant height and panicle weight. High heritability accompanied with genetic advance reported in non preference for oviposition I and II, trichome density at upper and lower leaves surface and deadherat I and II count at 21 DAE and 28 DAE (days after emergence).

Among fungal diseases anthracnose caused by Colleotrichum gloeosporioides is the most important disease. Survey of pomegranate (Punica granatum) orchards was conducted during 2013-14 in all the cropping seasons viz. mrig bahar, Hastabar and ambia bahar to assess the incidence and severity of anthracnose on pomegranate in Aurangabad, Jalna, Beed Osmanabad, Latur, Nanded, Hingoli and Parbhaani district of Marathwada region of Maharashtra state. The per cent disease incidence (PDI) and disease severity were recorded using 0-5 point scale. The maximum PDI on leaf was recorded in Hingoli (24.04%) followed by Nanded (22.62%) and Parbhani (22.22%) while least PDI recorded in Aurangabaad (15.09%). On fruit maximum PDI recorded in Parbhani (28.80%) which least in Beed district (19.02%). The 9.83 per cent disease variety on leaf was observed in Hingoli district and 10.70 per cent on fruit in Parbhani district. The maximum PDI (27.44%) on fruit and disease severity 12.45 per cent on fruit was recorded in Arakata. The maximum mean PDI 21.30 per cent on leaf and 25.85 per cent on fruit was recorded on trees aged above 5 years. The highest per cent disease incidence 25.34 per cent on leaf and 26.78 per cent on fruit was recorded on mrig bahar and the highest disease severity of leaf 10.05 per cent and fruit 11.22 per cent was reocrded in mrig bahar.

Field experiments were conducted under All India Coordinated Sorghum Improvement Project (AICSIP) at 6 locations during rainy seasons of 2009 and 2010 in a split plot design having 3 fertility levels, viz., control (0:0:0 kg/ ha of N: P2 O5 :K2 O), recommended dose of nutrients-RDF (80:40:40 kg/ha of N: P2 O5 : K2 O) and 150% of RDF (120:60:60 kg/ha of N: P2 O5 : K2 O) in main-plots, while 8 sorghum cultivars including 3 hybrids (‘CSH 14’, ‘CSH 16’, ‘CSH 23’) and 5 varieties (‘SPV 462’, ‘CSV 15’, ‘CSV 17’, ‘CSV 23’, ‘SPV 1616’) constituted the sub-plot to find out their effects on productivity and nutrient-use efficiency in rainy-season grain sorghum [Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench]. Results revealed that increasing levels of fertility up to 150% RDF significantly increased the grain yield (3.28 t/ha), nutrient uptake, net returns (25.97 ×103 /ha) and benefit: cost ratio (1.79) as compared to control. Hybrids produced 20.6% higher grain yield over varieties. Among hybrids ‘CSH 16’ (3.07 t/ha) and among varieties ‘SPV 462’ (2.56 t/ha) produced the maximum grain yields. The nutrient-use efficiency (NUE) was higher in hybrids (6.66 kg grain/kg NPK) than the varieties (5.54 kg grain/kg NPK). Increasing fertility levels from 100% RDF to 150% RDF increased the NUE of all the test hybrids, but decreased the efficiency of varieties except ‘CSV 17’. © 2015 Indian Society of Agronomy.

A field experiments was conducted under All India Coordinated Sorghum Improvement Project (AICSIP) at 6 locations during the rainy seasons of 2009 and 2010 in a split-plot design having 3 tillage systems in main plots and 4 nutrient-management practices in subplots with 3 replications, to find out their effects on productivity, profitability and energetics of sorghum [Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench]. Conventional tillage resulted in higher grain yield (3.12 t/ha), N, P and K uptake, net returns (`23.5 × 103/ha) and output energy (251 × 103 MJ/ha) than reduced and minimum tillage systems. Application of recommended dose of nutrients (80: 40: 40 N: P2O5, K2O kg/ha) through inorganic fertilizers proved significantly superior in terms of grain yield (3.32 t/ha), net returns (26.6 × 103/ha) and output energy (`267 × 103 MJ/ha) over rest of the treatments. © 2014, Indian Society of Agronomy.

Measurement of productivity growth is very essential to take appropriate policy decisions for the development of the agriculture sector. Present study measures total factor Productivity growth of pigeon pea crop in sub-sector of Maharashtra State. The Tornqvist Theil chained Divisia index approach was applied for the measurement of total factor productivity using output and input data of pigeon pea crop. Farm-level data on yield, level of inputs use and their prices for the period 1989-90 to 2008-09 were taken from the state funded cost of cultivation scheme. The multi-variable model was utilized to know the determinants of total factor productivity growth taking total factor productivity as dependent variable. Beside double sown area, other explanatory variables included total amount of loan, net cropped area, area under irrigation, area under high yielding variety, annual rainfall, villages electrified, number of tractors, number of pump sets, road density. The results indicated that total factor productivity growth was positive in pigeon pea crop in sub sector of Maharashtra State. Area under irrigation, area under high yielding varieties, rainfall, and road density has positive and significant impact on total factor productivity of pigeon pea crop in sub- sector.

A study was conducted during rabi 2012-13 at Pulse Research Area of CCS Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar to evaluate the effect of sowing time and seed rate on nodulation of chickpea cultivars. The experiment was laid out in a split plot design with two sowing time (1st fortnight of November and 1st fortnight of December.) and four cultivars (H09-23, H08-18, C-235 and HC-1) kept in main plots while three seed rates viz. 40 kg ha-1, 50 kg ha-1 and 60 kg ha-1 were kept in subplots and replicated thrice. Higher value of dry weight of nodule at 60 and 90 DAS was recorded in early sown as compared to late sown chickpea. Among various chickpea cultivar H09-23 recorded highest number of nodules per plant at both the stages. Varying seed rate of chickpea cultivars fail to influence numbers of nodules and its dry weight. Copyright © EM International.
