Gene action and combining ability for fodder yield and its attributing traits in oats (Avena sativa L.)

Studies in forage oats (Avena sativa L.) were carried out to generate information on combining ability (general and specific), nature and magnitude of gene effects for forage yield and their attributing traits. The experimental materials comprised of ten diverse parents and 45 F1 crosses (excluding reciprocals) generated through 10 x 10 diallel mating design. The experimental material was evaluated in a randomized...

Multiple attribute decision making for selection of mechanical cotton harvester

A numerical method called Multiple Attribute Decision Making (MADM) has been used for rational selection of a cotton harvester out of a finite number of cotton harvesters available the world over. In India, efforts are being made to design and develop a commercial cotton harvester to harvest selected cotton varieties sown by adopting common agronomic practices locally for cotton cultivation. The crop parameters for two...

Effective irrigation water management in Rabi Chilli for Bastar agro climatic zone

Chilli is one of the most promising vegetable crops for Bastar Agro Climatic Zone (ACZ) of Chhattisgarh State (India). Even though the region receives an average annual rainfall of 1200 to 1400 mm, it still lags double cropping system due to mismanagement of harvested and conserved rainfall. A field experiment was conducted on chilli crop (variety – NS 1701) to study the irrigation scheduling and effect of...
