Thirty sugarcane clones were tested during August season of 2008-09 and 2009-10 in a randomized complete block design with two replications at Zonal Agricultural Research Station, V.C. Farm, Mandya, Karnataka (India) to study the variability parameters for cane yield and quality traits in plant and ratoon crops. The observations were recorded for cane yield components viz., number of tillers, number of millable cane, stalk length, stalk diameter, single stalk weight, internodal length, number of internodes, juice brix per cent, juice pol per cent, juice purity per cent, CCS per cent, sugar yield and cane yield. Analysis of variance revealed highly significant differences between genotypes for all the characters studied. Wide range of variation was observed for number of tillers, number of millable cane, stalk diameter, cane and sugar yield and for quality traits, juice brix per cent, juice pol per cent and CCS per cent in both plant and ratoon crops. Maximum genotypic and phenotypic coefficients of variation were exhibited by number of tillers, single stalk weight, sugar yield and cane yield in both plant and ratoon crops. Among quality characters lowest values for both coefficients were recorded by purity per cent in both plant and ratoon crops. Maximum genetic gain as per cent of mean was observed for number of tillers, number of millable cane, sugar and cane yield in plant crops. Whereas, in ratoon crop highest genetic gain as per cent of mean was recorded for number of tillers, single stalk weight, sugar and cane yield. All characters showed high heritability which suggests that selection should be in both plant and ratoon crops based on yield contributing characters having high PCV, GCV, heritability and genetic advance along with mean value.

To explore the feasibility of utilization of maize flour in noodle preparation, eight different combinations (T1 to T8) with varied amount of maize flour (MF), refined wheat flour (RWF), rice flour (RF), wheat gluten (WG), soya protein isolate (SPI), kansui (Sodium Carbonates), potato starch (PS) were extruded to standardize good quality noodles. Among various combinations tested, the combination T5 (50 %MF + 30 %RWF + 10 %SPI + 7 %RF + 3 %WG) was rated the best for appearance (8.3) colour (8.25) taste (8.5) elasticity (8.3) with an overall acceptability of 8.2 on a nine point hedonic rating sensory scale. There was no significant difference in normal noodle (NN) and Quality protein maize (QPM) noodle (QN) for T5 with respect to sensory characteristics when compared to control noodle (CN) prepared out of refined wheat flour. The cooked yield was more for maize based noodle (234 g NN and 220 g QN) with lower cooking loss of 7.80 and 7.76 respectively for NN & QN. The nutritional composition of maize noodles revealed that addition of 10 % soya protein isolate had increased the protein content of noodles to the tune of 16.6 and 12.7 % in QN and NN respectively. The soluble (3.18NN, 3.76QN) and insoluble fiber (21.67NN, 21.87QN) contents of both NN & QN was significantly more compared to CN (0.15 and 9.3 g).There was non- significant increase in moisture and peroxide values up to 3 months of storage with high overall acceptable sensory scores (4.0, 4.1, & 4.2 respectively for NN, QN and CN but beyond third month of storage the increase was significant. However the noodles were within the acceptable range up to 6 months of storage with an overall acceptability score of 3.0, 3.4 and 3.2 for NN, QN and CN respectively on a five point hedonic scale. © 2015 Association of Food Scientists & Technologists (India)

Field experiments were carried out on sandy loam soil at Morena, during the winter (rabi) seasons of 2005-06, 2006-07 and 2007-08 to study the effect of irrigation and levels of NPK nutrients (% of recommended dose) on growth, yield, economics and quality parameters of Indian mustard [Brassica juncea (L.) Czernj and Cosson]. Irrigation at flower initiation and seed development stage achieved the maximum growth and yield attributes, resulting in 8.78% and 24.18% higher seed yield over one irrigation applied at flower initiation stage and siliquae development stage respectively. The application of 125% recommended dose of NPK fertilizers (RDF) induced significantly higher growth and yield characters, water use efficiency, protein and oil yield over other treatments and yielded 29.03%, 19.59% and 8.30% more seed yield over 50, 75 and 100% RDF, respectively.

Field experiment was conducted during 2007-08 to 2009-10 at Zonal Agricultural Research Station, Igatpuri, Dist. Nasik to study the effect of planting material and mode of fertilizer application on growth and yield of banana. The banana cv. Grand Naine was used as a test crop during three years of study. The experiment consisted of three planting material and four modes of fertilizer application. The results have revealed that the recommended dose of fertilizer through NPK briquettes recorded higher banana yield (102.22 t/ha), gross monetary returns (Rs. 6, 44,155), net returns (Rs. 4, 11,439) & B: C ratio (1.77). The use of tissue culture plants for banana planting gives higher banana yield (96.34 t/ha) & higher gross monetary returns (Rs. 6, 07,187/ha). Hence banana planting is recommended by tissue culture or suckers of tissue culture plants with application of recommended dose (200:40:200 NPK g/ plants) through briquettes has been found beneficial for maximum fruit yield and net monetary return under soil and climatic conditions of Western Ghat Zone of Maharashtra. © 2016, SciTechnol, All Rights Reserved.

The experiment was conducted at the JNKVV, Zonal Agricultural Research Station, AICRP on Niger, Chhindwara (M.P), India; during kharif 2015-16. A field experiment was conducted with 114 Niger germplasm to study the genetic divergence using Mahalanobis D2 statistics were grouped into 8 clusters. The results revealed considerable amount of genetic diversity. Cluster II had the maximum number of 90 genotypes followed by cluster I with 18 genotypes. The intracluster distance ranged from 0.00 to 84.52. The highest intra cluster distance was observed for cluster I (84.52) followed by cluster II (81.89). The intercluster D2 values ranged from 31.04 to 1325.05, the maximum intercluster distance was observed the cluster VII and VIII (1325.05) followed by clusters V and VIII (1137.12) and II and VIII (945.08), which indicated that the genotypes included in these clusters will give high heterotic response and thus better segregants. On this basis of the maximum inter cluster values and per se performance for seed yield/plant and 1000 seed weight, the genotypes (JNS-521, JNS-599, JNS-216) were identified as potential parents in future endeavors for improvement of Niger.

A field experiment was conducted to find out the effect of in-situ rainwater conservation techniques with integrated phosphorous management on consumptive use of moisture, moisture use efficiency and productivity of pigeonpea under dryland condition during the kharif season 2007-08 to 2011-12 at Zonal Agricultural Research Station, Solapur (Maharashtra). The pooled results revealed that in situ rain water conservation technique, flat sowing with one hoeing at 3rd week and opening of ridges and furrows at 30 days after sowing gave significantly higher grain and stalk (754 and 3323 kg ha-1) yield and has attributed to increased availability of soil water in the soil profile. Among the integrated phosphorus management, the application of 12.5 kg N ha-1 + 25 kg P2O5ha-1through DAP + Rhizobium + PSB registered significantly higher grain and stalk (897 and 3409 kg ha-1) yield over control with increased water use efficiency by 1.52 kg ha-1 mm-1. The higher soil moisture (136 mm),consumptive use of moisture (611mm) and moisture use efficiency (1.25 kg ha-1 mm-1) were conserved with the flat sowing with one hoeing at 3rd week and opening of ridges and furrow 30 days after sowing. Flat sowing + One hoeing +Opening of furrows at 30 DAS along with recommended dose of fertilizer 12.5:25 kg ha-1 N: P2O5 through DAP +Rhizobium +PSB is recommended for increased pigeonpea yield and water productivity through in situ rain water conservation techniques in dryland conditions. © 2017, Agricultural Research Communication Centre.

Maize based vermicelli was developed using normal (NV) as well as QPM (quality protein maize-QV). Feasibility of maize flour incorporation and its impact on quality of these convenience foods in terms of sensory, nutritional and storage behavior was assessed. Among various levels of maize flour incorporation the 50 % incorporated vermicelli was selected best on the basis of initial sensory evaluation. Vermicelli (50 %) along with control was evaluated for nutritional composition, cooking quality, storage quality and microbial load. The QV has got significantly more of protein (14.4 g), calcium (108.8 mg), magnesium (89.49 mg) compared to control vermicelli. The soluble and insoluble fiber contents of NV and QV were 9.38, 32.04 and 7.23, 18.22 mg respectively. While significantly more of insoluble fiber (32.04 mg) and zinc (7.65 mg) were found in NV compared to QV and CV. Maize based vermicelli took more time (seven min each) compared to CV (four min). Even the cooked weight was (251 and 250 g) respectively more for NV and QV compared to CV (239 g). Maximum overall acceptability scores were observed up to 3 months of storage, beyond which sensory scores affected significantly. Fresh samples were free of yeast and molds, while at the end of 6 months storage period fungal and mold counts were 1.10, 1.62, and 1.98 respectively for NV, QV and CV samples. However vermicelli was safe for consumption throughout the storage period of 6 months. © 2015 Association of Food Scientists & Technologists (India)
