Hepper] https://journaljeai.com/index.php/JEAI/article/view/2450 <p>Field experiment was conducted to investigate effect of co-inoculants Rhizophos in liquid formulation on the agronomic traits of black gram (<em>Vigna mungo</em> L.). The treatments such as RDF (Recommended dose of fertilizer) + rhizophos in liquid formulation (T<sub>5</sub>), RDF + phosphobacteria in liquid formulation (T<sub>4</sub>), RDF + <em>Rhizobium leguminosarum</em> (TNAU14) in liquid formulation (T<sub>3</sub>), RDF (T<sub>2</sub>) and absolute control (T<sub>1</sub>) were imposed in a Randomized Block Design with four replication each. Seeds were treated accordingly with the treatments and foliar application was done at 1ml.L<sup>-1 </sup>on 30, 45 and 60 DAS. Among the treatments, foliar spray of Rhizophos @ 1 ml.L<sup>-1</sup> exhibited profound effect in improving the growth and yield attributes. The result demonstrates that RDF + rhizophos in liquid formulation recorded the highest yield of (750 kg.ha<sup>-1</sup>) over the control (483 kg.ha<sup>-1</sup>). The results showed that, application of co-inoculant rhizophos through seed treatment and foliar spray significantly influenced the agronomics traits and yield of black gram over individual treatment and recommended dosage alone.</p> C.

The results revealed that the pest incidence was lower in IPM module compared to the historically adopted farmer’s practices, featuring here as a control<em>.</em> The increase in yield of 6.78% was observed in IPM demonstration (8503 kg/ha) compared to the control (7963 kg/ha). The net returns of Rs. 10,3214.00/ha and Rs. 91,145.00/ha were obtained in the IPM and control, respectively. The extension gap, technology gap and technology index were 747 kg/ha, 540 kg/ha and 8.07%, respectively. The lower technology index indicates that the technology implementation is feasible providing better education and popularization of the new programs thus reducing the gap between extension programs and new technologies.</p> M.

Lini) of Linseed https://journaljeai.com/index.php/JEAI/article/view/2452 <p>The experiment was carried out in a warehouse at the Department of Plant Pathology at C.S. Azad University of Agriculture and Technology in Kanpur with the aim of Isolation, purification, identification &amp; pathogenicity of linseed wilt pathogen, integrated disease management practice against Fusarium wilt, soil colonizing ability of <em>Trichoderma viride </em>in sick field plots, Effect of different pH levels and different temperature levels on the growth and sporulation of the pathogen (<em>in- vitro</em>). The experiment used an RBD design On eleven cultivars out of eleven cultivars (Jeevan, Shweta, Parvati, Surbhi, Shekhar, NDL-2004-05, Kiran, RLC-92, Indira Alsi, Dipika, and Chambal) tested, the minimum percentage of wilting was recorded in cultivar RLC-92 (6.64 percent) followed by Jeevan (8.85 percent) and Indira Alsi (9.70 percent), respectively but all were at par statistically, with 13 treatments, by reducing plant wilting, all treatments were found to be noticeably better than the control (untreated) at reducing disease severity, among all treatments minimum percent wilting with maximum disease control was recorded with treatment T<sub>4</sub> [seed treatment (5g/kg seed) + soil treatment with <em>Trichoderma</em> <em>harzianum</em> (10g/kg soil) followed by T<sub>2</sub> (5 g/kg seed) + soil treatments with <em>Trichoderma</em> <em>viride</em> (10 g/soil)] (19.46 percent) and T<sub>12</sub> (seed and soil treatment with carbendazin (0.2 percent) (23.50 percent), respectively under pot culture condition.</p> Himendra Raj Raghuvanshi Narendra Singh Puskar Shukla Vivek Singh Utkarsh Upadhyay Copyright (c) 2024 Author(s).

Wilczek] https://journaljeai.com/index.php/JEAI/article/view/2453 <p>A study was conducted to assess the effect of liquid bio-inoculants on the agronomic traits of green gram. Field experiments were conducted on the Instructional-North farm of Karunya Institute of Technology and Sciences, Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu during the rabi season (2024) in a randomized block design. The experiment included five treatments [Absolute control, RDF, RDF + <em>Rhizobium leguminosarum</em> (TNAU14) in liquid formulation, RDF + phosphor bacteria in liquid formulation, RDF + Rhizophos in liquid formulation. Seeds were treated in accordance with the details given above and foliar application was done @ 1ml Lit-1 on 15th,30th and 45th DAS. From the results, a significant increase in the plant height (30.03 cm) dry matter production (1633.67 kg ha-1) and number of root nodules (65.70) at different growth stages were observed when compared to the absolute control. The yield parameters like pods plant-1 and seeds pod-1 were also increased. The treatments with mixed liquid bio-inoculant Rhizophos (T5) registered the highest seed yield and haulm yield of 730 kg ha-1 and 1816.67 kg ha-1 respectively. The results suggest that, application of liquid rhizophos through seed treatment and foliar spray significantly influenced the agronomic traits of green gram and the yield.</p> S. Jaishree M.
