RICE Leaf blast, neck blast incidence was more. Cultivar Jeergi sanna showed resistant reaction to neck blast. In the screening trial, two genotypes exhibited highly resistant reaction to neck blast and 30 genotypes resistant reaction, 178 genotypes with moderately resistant reaction to neck blast. Out of 12 entries screened in Multi location trial, Gr-3 showed highly resistant reaction to leaf blast of rice. 2. MAIZE Results of the experiment conducted on fixed site continuosly for a period of five years indicated that combined application of organics and in-organics recorded significantly higher yield than organics alone. Even after fifth year recommended dose of fertilizers alone recorded significantly higher yield than organics alone. Physiological investigation on the productivity of 14 pre-released and released hybrids indicated that pre-released hybrids DMH-01, DMH-13 and GPMH-1101 recorded significantly higher and on par grain yield over other entries by virtue of their higher cob girth, test weight and higher number of seeds per cob. The maize genotypes DMR-29, CI-04, DMR-38, DMG-12, DMR-11 and DMR-24 were found highly drought tolerant among the 175 maize genotypes. Pre-emergence application of 1.0 kg ai/ha + 2 intercultivations at 20 and 35 days after sowing followed by post emergence application of Atrazine or 1.0 kg ai/ha at 35 days after sowing controlled weeds effectively without any phytotoxic effects on maize crop. Among the 70 CIMMYT maize hybrids evaluated under rainfed condition, hybrids CAHCR-1423, CAHCR-1459 and CAHCR-1464 produced significantly higher grain yield. The test hybrids DKC-9144, DKC IN 8401, DKC-9153-IN 8569, DKC-9141 and DKC-0140 recorded significantly higher grain yield over national check and private check and recorded on par grain yield with local check. Under Malaprabha command area during kharif season irrigating maize at 0.8 IW/CPE in addition to the application of Granubor 6 kg/ha and growing of chickpea during succeeding rabi season with 0.6 IW/CPE produced significantly higher gross returns of Rs. 1,47,718/ha and net returns of Rs.1,08,668/ha. Turcicum leaf blight, Maydis leaf blight and Rust were the major diseases observed. Brown spot and Curvularia leaf spot diseases were prevalent in Kalghatagi, Haveri, Dharwad and Shiggaon areas in severe

116 104 form. Out of 13 genotypes, the genotype DMH 100-1, BGMH 1, BGMH 2 were found moderately resistant to TLB and rust. 3. SORGHUM (JOWAR) Three kharif varietal entries (SVD-1203, SVD-744 & SPV-2250) and two hybrid entries (SHD-6 and SHD-36) were contributed from Dharwad centre for all India testing and out of these, four entries were advanced to next level of testing. Apart from this, one rabi varietal entry SPV-2217 was tested in AVT-I trial and same entry was released for general cultivation in Zone-8 of Karnataka. The variety is a cross derivative of GunduJola IS The variety matures in 120 to 125 days with average grain yield of 15 to 18 q/ha and dry fodder yield of 6.5 to 7.0 t/ha. It is superior to M 35-1 for both grain and fodder yield with bold round and lustrous seeds, tolerant to charcoal rot disease and exhibits no lodging at the time of maturity. Under National Network Project on CRP on Agro-biodiversity - Sorghum (Component-I), 750 germplasm lines were characterized as per the protocol. As many as 66 crosses were advanced to F2 and 128 IPS/ family selections were made in various generations from F2 to F6 and 80 M4 progenies were evaluated for grain size and grain yield. As many as 229 germplasm lines of the center were maintained in addition to the 18 new hybrids produced by using three line methods. F5 lines of the cross between M 35-1 EC-19 indicated variation in grain Zn and Fe contents. The line 10 had higher Zn (3.23 mg/100g seed) and Fe contents (11.9 mg/100g seed).the lines 13 and 14 had only higher Fe content and lines 4 & 7 had only higher Zn content. In advanced drought germplasm trial conducted in shallow soil indicated that the total dry matter/plant (TDM) of 16 genotypes ranged between 175 and 250 g/plant. Highest TDM was recorded by RSV 1420 followed by BJV 83 and M Highest relative water content (RWC) was recorded by CRS 15, RSV 1098 and M Cultivar M 35-1 recorded highest grain yield followed by BJV 83 and BRJ 204. Cultivars MSV 71, BJV 83 and BRJ 204 produced higher fodder yield. In advanced drought germplasm trial in medium black soil, cultivars RSV 1429, MSV 71, and Phule Chitra produced highest dry matter. Highest RWC was recorded by CRS 15, RSV 1420 and RSV The genotype MSV 71 recorded highest SPAD meter values followed by RSV 1455 and M The grain yield was more in RSV 1098, followed by MSV 71 and Phule Chitra. Preliminary evaluation of 48 diverse germplasm for rabi adaption indicated a greater variation with respect to flowering ( 65 to 79 days), days to maturity (112 to 127), panicle dry weight (31 to 55 g), SPAD meter values (37 to 56), LAI (1.15 to 2.00) and grain yield/plant (27 to 45 g). The genotypes RSV 1462, RSV 1460, Kavalu gudda mungaru, SSRG 164, Tikota, Bhairodagi and SSRG 203 were found better. In root characteristics of 13 genotypes MSV 71 and RSV 1410 recorded highest root length, whereas CRS 15 and M35-1 had highest root weight. Among ten insecticides evaluated against shoot fly, Carbofuron 3G (30 Imidacloprid 17.8 SL (0.3ml/l) and kg/ha), followed by Flubendamide 480 SC(0.2ml/l) were found effective in reducing the incidence and increasing the grain yields. However, these two insecticides were next best to Carbofuran. Cultivar CSH-25 with the application of 100 % recommended dose of fertilizers (RDF) produced significantly higher grain yield over the application of 50 % and 75 % RDF. Cultivar CSH-16 produced higher grain yield with the application of 100% RDF. Pooled results indicated that application of 100%

117 105 recommended dose of nitrogen ( RDN) through inorganic fertilizer recorded significantly higher grain yield and net monetary returns. Application of 25 % N at sowing fb 50 % N at 30 DAS fb 25 % N at boot leaf stage to CSH-16 recorded significantly higher grain yield (62.56 q/ha) and fodder yield (9.63 t/ha) except 25% N at sowing + 45 % N at 30 DAS + 5 % N through foliar at 45 DAS +15 % N at BLS +10 % N at GFS with which it was at par in grain yield. Priority wise RDF, weed control, plant protection measures (PPM) and thinning were found critical in enhancing sorghum yield. The reduction in grain yield was to an extent of 46.3, 42.3, 38.3 and 28.5 % due to the elimination of RDF, weed control, PPM and thinning respectively from recommended cultivation practices. Sorghum fresh fodder yield (50.1 t/ha) was significantly higher in sorghum + horsegram (2:1) with 100 % RDN compared to others except sorghum + horsegram (2:2) with 100% RDN (46.9 t/ha) and sorghum + horsegram (2:1) with 75% RDF (46.8 t/ha). While cowpea fodder yield (20.4 t/ha) was significantly higher in sorghum+cowpea (2:2) with 100 % RDF compared to others. Leaf: stem ratio and brix followed the similar trend. During the survey, downy mildew (14.91%), rust (4.6), zonate leaf spot (4.5) and grain mould (4.96) were the four major diseases recorded in different districts. In 2014, downy mildew was less in 2014 compared to 2013 because of variation in the rainfall. 4. PEARL MILLET (BAJRA) Among the hybrids, RBH-279 recorded significantly higher grain yield (4094 kg/ha) over other test hybrids and checks viz., GHB-558 and 86 M 35 (2449 and 2961 kg/ha, respectively), but it was on par with hybrids viz., RBH-36 (3959 kg/ha), HTBH-4101 (3780 kg/ha) and HTBH-4202 kg/ha). Among the inorganic nutrients, application of RDF + 10 kg/ha recorded significantly higher grain yield (2560 kg/ha) compared to absolute control (1680 kg/ha), RDF alone (2238 kg/ha), RDF + 20 k g/ha (2346 kg/ha) and RDF kg/ha (2375 kg/ha). At 60 DAS, weed control efficiency was higher in weed free check (100 %) followed by hand weeding + hoeing at 20 and 40 DAS (86.2 %), 0.5 kg ai/ha as pre emergence + one hand weeding at 35 DAS (75.1 %) and 0.4 kg ai/ha as post emergence + one hand weeding at 35 DAS (72.4%). 0.5 kg ai/ha as pre emergence + one hand weeding at 35 DAS recorded significantly higher net monetary returns (Rs.17097/ha) compared to weedy check (Rs.8643/ha) and application of 0.1 to 0.3 kg ai/ha as post emergence + one hand weeding at 35 DAS (Rs to /ha), however, it was on par with weed free check (Rs.16408/ha), 0.4 kg ai/ha as post emergence followed by one hand weeding at 35 DAS (Rs 16390/ha), hand weeding and hoeing at 20 and 40 DAS ( Rs.16375/ha). Among the different herbicidal treatments, 0.5 kg ai/ha as pre-emergence (PE) followed by 1 HW+ 1 IC recorded significantly higher grain yield (2139 kg/ha) compared to weedy check (1237 kg/ha). Weed control efficiency was higher with weed free check (100 %) followed by 1 HW + 2IC (83.8 %) and 0.5 kg ai/ha as pre-emergence (PE) followed by 1 HW+ 1 IC (83.47 %) and 0.5 kg a.i/ha as pre-emergence (PE) followed by 0.50 kg ai/ha as post emergence at DAS (74.38 %). 5.

MUNGBEAN (GREENGRAM) DGG-1, a high yielding greengram variety has been released for Zone-8 of Karnataka in ZREAC and ZREFC meeting held during kharif DGGS 4 greengram variety is accepted for release by the Varietal Identification Committee, AICRP on MULLaRP for the Northern Hilly Zone (NHZ) during the Annual Workshop on MULLaRP held at CCS, HAU, Hissar, May 17-18, 2014 Allelopathic effect of greengram on rabi jowar: The effect of green gram crop residue incorporation on performance of rabi sorghum indicated that there was no allelopathic effect of greengram on rabi sorghum after which was sown four weeks after incorporation. Evaluation of seed storability behavior of greengram varieties under ambient condition for a period of 10 months showed that among three varieties, DGGV-2 was found to be better stored compared to CM and Sel-4 followed by neem oil (5ml/kg) and Deltamethrin 28 EC (0.5ml/kg) in maintaining the seed quality even after 10 months of storage. Among the seed treatments, castor oil (5ml/kg) was found to be better.

119 Evaluating 107 mungbean genotypes under delayed planting conditions showed that 20 th June sown greengram crop recorded significantly higher (974 kg/ha) yield over others. Among the genotypes, DGG-8 (663 kg/ha) and DGG-6 (638 kg/ha) were on par with each other and recorded significantly higher yield over other genotypes. Among the interactions, genotypes sown in first date of sowing DGG-8 (1314) and DGG-6 (1209 kg/ha) recorded significantly higher yield over all the genotyprs. During second and third date of sowing there was no significant difference among the genotypes. In second date of sowing all the genotypes recorded 37 to 62 % lower yield compared to first date of sowing. Integrated crop management in Mungbean: The treatment receiving NM+WM+PM (907 kg/ha) recorded significantly higher yield over all the management practices except WM + PM (775 kg/ha). The treatment receiving NM + WM +PM, NM+WM, NM+PM and WM+PM recorded significantly higher net returns (38031, 28479, and Rs./ha, respectively) compared to control (18361Rs./ha). 2. REDGRAM (PIGEONPEA) Seed quality enhancement through botanicals and chemicals in redgram: Seed soaking in botanicals and chemicals for one hour significantly promoted seed germination and increased seedling vigour in redgram over control. Among the seed treatments, the seeds treated with Prosophis leaf extract (2 %) recorded higher seed quality parameters over control followed by pongamia and drumstick leaf extracts. Among the chemicals, CaCl 2 encouraged the seed quality parameters significantly over control. Mean of the two years data indicated that transplanting of 28 days old seedlings of redgram cv. BSMR -736 at a spacing of 120 cm 30 cm produced higher yield of good quality seeds compared to cv. TS-3R. Response of redgram genotypes to planting geometry and nipping showed that Cultivar TS-3R recorded significantly higher seed yield (1352 kg/ha) over BSMR -736 (1137 kg/ha). Among the spacing, sowing of pigeonpea at 120 cm 20 cm recorded significantly higher grain yield (1373 kg/ha) compared to 90 cm 20 cm (1310 kg/ha), which in turn was significantly superior to 150 cm 20 cm cm (1050 kg/ha). Nipping of main shoot at 50 DAS recorded significantly higher seed yield (1287 kg/ha) compared to no nipping control (1183 kg/ha), but was on par with spraying mepiquat 3 ml/l at 7 0 DAS (1264 kg/ha). Response of Boron Nutrition to redgram: Indicated that soil application of granulated 2.5 kg/ha fb foliar application of soluble 0.1 % at flowering + pod filling stage resulted in significant higher seed yield (1501 kg/h a) over control (1138 kg/ha). However, it was on par with soil application of granulated 2.5 kg/ha along with foliar application of soluble at pod filling (1480 kg/ha), flowering (1418 kg/ha) and soil application of granulated kg/ha only (1407 kg/ha) over other treatments. Crop weather relation studies in redgram: Sowing was performed on three staggered dates, 9 th July, 19 th July and 1 st August The first rainfall congenial for sowing occurred on 7 th -8 th July Rainfall of mm occurred in July and mm in August. Yield of 901 kg/ha, 843 kg/ha and 661 kg/ha was

120 108 obtained in three growing environments respectively. On the other hand, yields of 850 kg/ha, 738 kg/ha and 817 kg/ha were obtained in the short duration (TS-3R), medium duration (Maruti) and long duration variety (BSMR-736) respectively. The morning humidity of less than 86 % in flowering stage was favourable for lowering the seed yield during Powdery mildew was observed in severe form in Vijayapur district on late sown crop (in the month of July) on TS-3R. 3. BLACKGRAM/URDBEAN Potassium management in urdbean through organics and inorganics: Among the potassium levels, application of 10 kg K 2 O/ha and 20 kg K 2 O/ha were found beneficial. Blackgram did not show any response to the application of organic over application of recommended dose of fertilizers alone. Integrated crop management in Urdbean: The treatment receiving full package of technology WM + PM + NM recorded significantly higher seed yield (1392 kg/ha) and net returns ( Rs. 67,711/ha) over all the treatments OILSEEDS 1. GROUNDNUT (PEANUT) Mean of three years (kharif 2012, kharif 2013 and kharif 2014) data indicated that application of 7.5 t/ha along with the recommended dose of fertilizers ( 25 kg N, 75 kg P 2 O 5 and 25 kg K 2 O/ha) and FeSO 25 kg/ha produced significantly higher dry pod and kernel yield (3892 and 2888 kg /ha, respectively) compared to application of 7.5 t/ha alone (3295 and 2409 kg /ha, respectively), application of recommended dose of fertilizers ( 25 kg N, 75 kg P 2 O 5 and 25 kg K 2 O/ha) alone (3656 and 2706 kg/ha, respectively) and application of 7.5 t/ha + recommended dose of fertilizers (25 kg N, 75 kg P 2 O 5 and 25 kg K 2 O/ha) (3712 and 2760 kg/ha, respectively). Foliar application of 2.00 % at 30 and 60 days after sowing produced significantly higher kernel yield (2770 kg /ha) compared to no foliar application of Urea and was on par with foliar application of 2.00 % at 30 days after sowing (2711 kg/ha). Mean of two years (Mean of and ) data indicated that groundnut pod equivalent yield and net monetary returns were not significantly influenced by different nutrient management practices. However, in groundnut-wheat sequence cropping system, application of 7.5 t/ha along with 100 % RDNPK (25 kg N, 75 kg P 2 O 5 and 25 kg K 2 /ha) to groundnut during kharif + no fertilizers to wheat during succeeding rabi season produced higher groundnut pod equivalent yield and higher net monetary returns compared to other nutrient management practices. Cultivars differed significantly with respect to dry pod and kernel yield. Cultivar K 1641 produced % (3578 kg/ha) and % (2640 kg/ha) higher dry pod yield and kernel yield over cultivar TGLPS 3 (3194 kg ha -1 and 2241 kg/ha). Spacing had significant effect on dry pod and kernel yield of groundnut. Evaluation of DAPG-producing fluroscent pseudomonas for enhancing nutrient use efficiency, bio control of soil-borne diseases and yield of groundnut during kharif 2014: Effect of DAPG-producing fluorescent pseudomonas was not significant on groundnut pod yield, uptake of N & P and nutrient use efficiency but significant on bio-control of stem rot incidence. Higher dry pod yield of groundnut

121 109 was obtained with DAPG 2(3297 kg/ha) closely followed by DAPG 4 (3287 kg/ha), FP 98 (3285 kg/ha), DAPG 1 (3266 kg/ha), Trichoderma spp. (3260 kg/ha) and FP 86 (3232 kg/ha) over control (3052 kg/ha). Late leaf spot rust and stem rot incidence were observed during the survey for groundnut diseases. Seed treatment with Tebuconazole (1.5 g/kg seed) + two sprays of Tebuconazole (1.0 ml/l), starting from initiation of foliar diseases (ELS/LLS/Rust) and 2 nd management of rust and late leaf spot of groundnut. 2. SOYBEAN spray at 15 days interval was found effective in the DSb 21: A cross derivative of JS 335 x EC was found to be highly resistant to rust with 10-12% yield superiority compared to popular variety JS 335. This is the first of its kind in India developed by UAS, Dharwad. It is recommended for cultivation in Southern zone (Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Southern parts of Maharashtra states) of India. DSb 19: Owing to its high yielding ability with wide adaptable nature and slow rusting mechanism, DSb 19 a cross derivative of JS 335 x EC is accepted for release in North Eastern zone (Assam, West Bengal, Meghalaya, Manipur, Nagaland, Eastern Bihar, Orissa and Chattisgarh States) of India. DSb 23-2: A cross derivative of JS 335 x EC was found to be promising with highly resistance to rust and with 4-5% yield superiority compared to DSb 21 The pooled data of 7 years of cropping sequence in organic farming (continued since 2008) indicated that soybean wheat cropping system with 50% organic + 50% inorganic treatment recorded significantly higher yield and economic returns. Phosphorus use efficiency (PUE) was increased compared to their respective parents in soybean: Increase in the PUE of mutants was attributed to decrease in dry matter and early maturity rather than variation in actual P content. Leaf P content was found to be less significant as for as PUE content. Leaf P content of 0.25 to 0.30 percent was found to be sufficient for managing the growth and development of the mutants. Molecular characterization of the mutants indicated that mutants are variants from the parents. The physiological parameters varied significantly among the mutants. The agronomic traits like yield, 100 seed weight, harvest index and maturity were found better than respective parents. The mutants J , J and J of JS-335 and the mutants K , K (black seed coated) and KE 4-11 of KHSb-2 were identified as higher PUE mutants respectively. Two year trial of new herbicide molecule, PIH485 (85% WG) in soybean indicated that the different doses were found effective in controlling the weeds compared to control. No phytotoxicity symptoms were observed on the succeeding rabi crop chickpea. Identification of suitable areas for quality seed production in soybean: The seeds produced in Bidar district exhibited better seed quality parameters compared to Dharwad, Haveri, Belgaum and Bagalkot districts. The seed quality attributes were lowest with seeds of Bagalkot district. Various seed borne diseases were associated with the seeds produced in different district. Seed health studies of different seed lots confirmed the dominance of Cercospora kikuchii (11.71%), Rhizoctonia bataticola (9.27%), Colletotrichum truncatum (9.07%), Fusarium spp. (3.76%), Rhizopus spp (3.48%).

122 110 Effect of seed moisture levels on seed germination in soybean: The results indicated that the seed moisture content of 11 % recorded significantly higher seed germination (81.83 %) and low abnormal seedlings (11.17 %) and diseased seed (7 %) when seeds were dried to 10 % moisture content. The higher or lower seed moisture than % reduces the seed germination. SL 976, SL 982 and DS 2705 were resistant to purple seed stain disease of soybean. A new sources of resistance-ec was reported against rust, Bacterial pustule and yellow mosaic virus. DSb 23-2 & DSb 28-3 were found resistant to rust and purple seed stain diseases of soybean. In three year experimentation, (adaptive module) comprising of ST with Trichoderma 6 g/kg + 5 g/kg seeds + spray of neem 1.0% and of Nomuraea 5g/lit at 45 DAS followed by second spray at 60 DAS of 0.1%, 0.05% and third spray of Pseudomonas 0.5% at 75 DAS was found effective in managing defoliaters, pod borer, rust, PSS and anthracnose of soybean. In the management of soybean rust two sprays with Hexaconazole + foliar application of 2% KNO3 was found effective. 3. SESAME AND NIGER Sesame Phyllody was more in Gadag and Bagalkot districts ( > 10.0 %). Early sowing was better with respect to avoiding the foliar disease severity. The genotypes viz., ONS-162, IGPN , IGPN- 1102, ONS-171 and ONS-22 recorded grade 3 for Cercospora leaf spot of niger. Seed mycoflora studies revealed the prevalence of Cercospora and Alternaria COMMERCIAL CROPS 1. COTTON Characterisation and registration of genes GhCesaA1, GhCesaA2, GhCesaA7, Ghcobl4 and GhMT1 with National Centre for Biotechnological Information: Cellulose estimation of diploid cotton genotypes has been accomplished. The diploid cotton genotypes were evaluated during along with synthesis of crosses involving high and low strength of arboreum and herbaceums. In a Climate Change experiment, it was observed that delay in sowing by 10 days resulted in reduction of seed cotton yield to the extent of % irrespective of genotypes. Among the genotypes the extent of yield reduction with delayed sowing was maximum in Bunny BG-II (31.89 %) followed by Mallika (13.04 %). MRC 7351 BG and Rasi BG-II recorded least reduction in yield (3.24 and 7.12 % respectively) with delayed sowing. In a manipulation of source sink relationship through growth regulators for enhancing productivity in cotton, it was noticed that application of 45 ppm Ethrel at 45 DAS followed by 500 ppm at 80 DAS recorded significantly (36 %) more yield (2126 kg/ha) compared to control (1556 kg/ha). Testing of swell (CCPU) Forchlorfenuron bio -efficacy on cotton crop indicated that application of 1ml/l at flowering recorded significantly higher seed cotton yield (3185 kg/ha) over control (2741 kg/ha). Foliar spray of 10 ppm at flowering also recorded % higher seed cotton yield. Evaluation of Godrej Double for Bio-efficacy on hybrid Bt cotton in first year trial indicated that application of Godrej 250ml/ha recorded significantly higher seed cotton yield (2875 kg/ha) but was at par with Planofix at 10 ppm

123 111 (2804 kg/ha), which was 12.8 per cent higher than control. Bio-efficacy of plant growth regulators in comparison to market samples on cotton, foliar application of 400 g/ha recorded significantly higher seed cotton yield (3276 kg/ha) over control (2613 kg/ha) due to sig nificantly more number of bolls/plant (19.00). Bioefficacy of NZBBA 9050 cotton ( Novozyme) towards reducing P fertilizer and increasing PUE, it has been noticed that reduction in recommended phosphatic fertilizer by 50 % resulted in 23 % reduction in seed cotton yield. Application of 5 g/kg as seed treatment with full doze of P recorded maximum seed cotton yield 2245 kg/ha compared to control (2129 kg/ha) resulting in 5.45 % increase. However, application of Novozyme 10 g/kg seed treatment for substitution of 50 % reduced P fertilizer, recorded on par seed cotton yield as that of full doze of P. Simulation Models/Electronic Gadgets to Predict Insect Infestation bollworm Resistance to Bt cotton experiments indicated that normal dates of sowing had maximum (2850 kg/ha) seed cot ton yield and 10 days delay sowing than normal date reduced the yield. Further delay of 10 more days resulted in % reduction in yield. Among the two genotypes Mallika recorded 5.63 % more seed cotton yield than Suraj. Application of Paclobutrazol 20/ ml at flowering recorded 23 % higher yield of seed cotton. Among the insecticides that were evaluated against shoot weevil management in hybrid Bt cotton, the combined application of Profenophas 50 EC + Dichlorvas 76 EC (4.30 % infestation) followed by Quinolphos 25 EC + Dichlorovas 76 EC (6.17 % infestation) and Thiodicarb 75 WP + Dichlorovas 76 EC (4.50 %) were quite effective by registering lower shoot weevil infestation. The same chemicals without the combination of Dichlorovas 76 EC, were found to be next best options and were comparable to okra (7.15 %) as trap crop. Significantly higher infestation of % was recorded in untreated control where no chemical intervention was involved. 2. TOBACCO Results of the studies on the response of pre-releasing bidi tobacco variety to nitrogen and topping levels under rainfed conditions indicated that cv. NBD-43 produced 4.4 % higher leaf yield compared to NBD-209. Nitrogen levels did not influence leaf yield and any of the morphological parameters of tobacco. Topping levels did not have any significant influence on leaf yield except plant height and number of leaves per plant. Results of the trial on the response of bidi tobacco to sulphur under rainfed conditions indicated that, bidi tobacco responded to sulphur application. With increasing levels of sulphur from 0 to 50 kg/ha, there was increase in the leaf yield. The maximum leaf yield was recorded with the application of 50 kg/ha (1627 kg/ha) compared to no sulphur application (1286 kg/ha) and other levels of sulphur. Similar trend was seen in all the morphological parameters of tobacco. With regard to quality parameters, no exact trend of impact of sulphur levels on any of the quality parameters was seen. Studies on the response of bidi tobacco to split application of potash indicated that, bidi tobacco responds to higher and split application of potash. The maximum leaf yield was produced with the application of 40 kg K 2 O/ha in two splits (2033 kg/ha) followed by 80 kg K 2 O/ha in two splits (2022 kg/ha) compared to no potassium (1681 kg/ha). Similar trend was observed in all the morphological parameter. With respect to quality parameters, split application of 40

124 112 kg K 2 O/ha resulted in maximum accumulation of nicotine in leaf compared to no potassium and other levels of potash HORTICULTURE CROPS During , cultivars Ajmeer Methi-2 and DFC-3 in methi, cv. CL-20 in cluster bean, cv. DWDS- 1 in Snake gourd and cv. DWDB-1 in brinjal were recommended for multi-location trial due to their superiority over already recommended cultivars Bioefficacy and growth promoting ability of bio-control agents against important diseases of tomato revelaed that Pseudomonas fluorescence and Bacillus subtilis to be the efficient organisms and their combinations with 10 gram per liter concentration helped to manage diseases of tomato in poly house. Soft rot disease in Banana, damping off in vegetables and sigatoka of banana were the important diseases noticed in Belagavi district. Wilt -complex in Pomegranate was becoming more severe AGRO-FORESTRY The present invention relates to novel chromone alkaloid of formula 1 isolated from the plant Dysoxylum binectariferum. The compound 5,7-dihydroxy-6-(3-hydroxy-1-methylpiperidin-4-yl)-2-methyl-4Hchromen-4-one, is found to be a potential inhibitor of cell growth and proliferation and also inhibits the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines. The formulations of this particular compound can be used for treatment of cancer and inflammation Estimation of carbon sequestration in forest soils of remotely densed forests in Uttara Kannada district: The Uttara Kannada district land use system was classified using supervised classification for estimating the area under different LU/LC classes. It was found that there are 9 LULC classes. Among them only six LU/LC classes were considered for soil sampling and estimation of SOC at cm. Among the different LU/LC classes dense forest covered an area of % ( sq km) followed by agriculture % ( sq. km),sparse forest % ( sq. km), open land 6.09 % ( sq. km), horticulture plantation and least was found in forest plantation 1.07 %. Including the settlement, stony land and water body the total area of the district is sq.km. The average SOC % at cm was found same in dense forest and horticulture plantation followed by forest plantation (1.06 %), sparse forest (1.04 %) and least was found in agriculture land (0.55 %). The total SOC pool in UK district is million tonnes (Mt) out of which million tonnes sequester in dense forest followed by sparse forest ( Mt). The remaining LU/LC classes sequester million tonnes, million tonnes, million tonnes and million tonnes in agriculture land, open land, horticulture plantation and forest plantation respectively. The SOC sequestration in agriculture land was least (68.14 t/ha). When we work out the carbon dioxide mitigation potential it was found that dense forest sequester 2.32 times more than Agriculture land followed by horticulture plantation (2.18 times), sparse forest, forest plantation (1.94 times) and open land (1.31times).

125 113 Study of growth performance of Tectona grandis linn.(f). in plantations and farm lands: implications for management: Teak performed better on farm lands as compared to plantations due to better management by the farming community. But some more silvicultural management practices viz., thinning, pruning, conservation measures are to be adopted for better commercial growth of teak so that timber can give more economic value which is an additional income to the farmers. Better growth of clear bole and girth in teak on farm lands was attributed to early pruning (5-10 yrs age class) of lower branches by the farmers. Trenching along the teak rows on farm bunds helped trees for soil working, loosening of soil, moisture conservation, weed control etc. Thinning regime was not followed in both the cases (plantations and farm lands). But some of the trees on farm bunds were randomly removed / harvested as small poles (timber) at an age of years without any thumb rule by the farmers whenever required for their self utilization for agricultural implements or any other household purpose. Teak under plantations faced more competition for space, light, nutrients and any other resources available compared to teak on farm lands. Knots appeared in teak under plantations as well as on farm lands due to late pruning in matured trees which in turn has a chance of pest and disease attack on the fresh late pruned points. So it can be suggested that pruning (5-10 yrs) and thinning (5-10 and yrs) are the important tools for better silvicultural management for commercial growth of teak (girth and clear bole) to fetch more economic value in the market CROPPING SYSTEMS AND DRYLAND AGRICULTURE Planting pattern and phosphorus management in mungbean/urdbean genotypes in intercropping with redgram: Intercropped redgram at 2:2 row ratio with 75 kg P 2 O 5 /ha recorded significantly higher yield (2942 kg/ha) over sole pigeonpea with 50 and 75 kg P 2 O 5 /ha (2269 kg and 2343 kg/ha, respectively) and intercropped redgram at 1:1 row ratio with 50 kg P 2 O 5 /ha (2295 kg/ha) and it was on par with others.

Similar results were observed during previous two years. Peroxidase enzyme activity was analysed in both irrigated and rainfed conditions. Under drought conditions, the peroxidase have expressed double the activity than under irrigated conditions. Similarly, the higher proline percentage increase indicates the drought tolerant nature of genotypes. Based on these results following genotypes tested which have shown biochemical basis of drought tolerance are HAG-805, ARBH-2004, LRA 5166 and GBHV-177. The percentage reduction in these genotypes is also low.

QTL were detected for late leaf spot (LLS) and rust resistance using phenotypic data from 11 seasons. For LLS, four QTL with LOD and PVE of % were identified. Three QTL with LOD and PVE of % were detected for rust resistance. One QTL (GM2009:IPAHM103) was common to LLS and rust resistance. These QTL and the linked markers were validated using other populations and Near Isogenic Lines (NILs) derived from Heterogeneous Inbred Families (HIFs). The two new Arachis hypogaea miniature inverted-repeat transposable element (AhMITE1) markers linked to rust resistance showed strong validation among the RILs of TG 26 GPBD 4. Marker assisted backcross (MABC) breeding was initiated with JL 24 and TMV 2 as the recurrent parents and GPBD 4, ICGV and ICGV as the donors. Lines superior to JL 24 for LLS and rust resistance were identified from BC 1 F 4 (six lines), BC 2 F 3 (four lines) and BC 3 F 4 (six lines).

Development of monoclonal antibodies: In the programme on the expression of scfv antibodies and standardization of Immunoassay against Banana bunchy top virus, Two scfv antibody clones (pbsnmab6 and pbsnmab31) were confirmed and characterized which will be used to develop immunoassay detection kit for banana bunchy top virus of banana SOIL SCIENCE, ENVIRONMENT SCIENCE AND AGRICULTURAL ENGINEERING 1. Sujala III Project entitled Support for improved programme integration in rainfed areas of Gadag and Koppal Districts: The ten micro-watersheds in Dindur (7), Hosalli (2), Majjur (1) sub-wathersheds were covered and the LRIs in respect of characteristics were collected. The grid samples at 250 m x 250 m were collected for physio-chemical (ph, EC) and nutrients (Av. N, P 2 O 5, K 2 O, S and micronutrients) mapping. The thematic maps were prepared for site characteristics for all the sampled micro-watersheds in above subwatersheds. Fifteen to 20 soil profiles were dug in each micro-watershed for soil characterization. Ten microwatersheds in Bedwatti (8) and Chendur (2) sub-watersheds of Yelburga taluk of Koppal district were covered and the LRIs in respect of site characteristics were collected. As like in Gadag district, the grid samples were collected and analyzed for physio-chemical (ph, EC) and nutrients (Av. N, P 2 O 5, K 2 O, S and micronutrients) status. The nutrient status was mapped on GIS platform. Similarly, the thematic maps were prepared to know the spatial variability in respect of site characteristics in each micro-watershed. Fifteen to 20 soil profiles were dug in each micro-watershed for soil characterization. 2. Balanced fertilization for sustainable Bt. Cotton production with special emphasis on K in soils of North Karnataka: The first experiment under this was on optimization of NPK dose for Bt cotton grown in red soils. The treatment which received 150: 50:75 kg N, P 2 O 5 and K 2 O / ha recorded the highest yield and uptake of nutrients. The second experiment was on the effect of graded levels of potassium and KNO 3 spray on yield, quality and uptake of nutrients by Bt cotton in black soil. The results showed that application of 25 per cent extra NPK and 2 per cent KNO 3 sprays at 70, 90 and 110 days after sowing resulted in highest yield, quality and uptake of nutrients by Bt cotton. To a question on whether the crop response to enhanced levels of NPK by cotton was similar in both red and black soils, he said the response was of higher magnitude in red soil. 3. Assessment of the extent and severity of soils salinity in Krishna basin using multi-spectral satellite data: The study was initiated by collecting ground truth data from saline and non-saline fields in Mudhol Branch Canal command of GLBC. The results of soil analysis indicated that the ph ranged between 7.84 and 9.14 while EC varied between 1.16 and 8.81 ds m -1. A strong and negative relation was observed between soil EC and the crop NDVI. The SPAD values of the sugarcane crop were also negatively correlated to soil EC. 4. Characterization and monitoring of the quality of treated sewage effluent: The analytical results of untreated and treated sewage water effluent revealed that there was significant improvement in the quality of

135 123 sewage water due to its passing through the constructed wetland. The mean values of ph, EC, total solids, total suspended solids, total dissolved solids, BOD, COD, chloride, bicarbonate, total N, phosphates, sodium, Ca+Mg, SAR and RSC for untreated (raw) and treated sewage water showed considerable reduction in these parameters due to constructed wetland treatment. This experiment is continued to monitor the long term effect of constructed wetland on treated water quality. 5. The effect of long term application of spentwash on soil properties: Long-term spentwash application significantly reduced soil bulk density, erosion index, dispersion index and increased maximum water holding capacity, aggregate stability and infiltration rate. The EC and ESP values increased with increased periods of spentwash application recording the highest values under >20 years of spentwash application. The available nutrient status, CEC, base saturation, ESP and CaCO 3 content in soil was higher in the plots irrigated with spentwash for >20 years. The higher soil bacteria, fungi and actinomycetes population was found in the treatment that received spentwash for 10 to 15 years, which decreased at > 20 years of spentwash application. Monitoring of one time controlled land application of spentwash: The Ugar Sugars works, Ltd, Ugar Khurd, Belgaum district, Vijayanagar Sugar PVT. Ltd., Gangapur, Mundargi, Karthik Agro Industries, Bagalkot, Vlishwanath Sugars, Bellad Bagewadi, S.V. Distilleries, Malchapur, Bidar Tq. and Dist, Since the distillery did not get the consent from the Pollution Control Board, Bengaluru for application of spentwash, the implementation of the project was not taken up during Monitoring of one time controlled land application of treated Spent wash of Siddapur Distilleries Ltd., Jamakhandi, Bagalkot district: As per the Agronomic plan submitted by distillery, treated distillery spent wash was applied one time before the onset of Monsoon in 41 farmers fields of three villages viz., Mareguddi, Jagdal and Kallolli of Jamkhandi taluk. Soil samples were collected in farmers fields before the spent wash application and after the harvest of the crop. The analysis of soils after harvest of crops revealed that there was no adverse effect on soil properties due to land application of treated spentwash. Farmers opined that the crop growth and yields increased due to application of treated spent wash. On an average, crop yields increased by 15 per cent in case of sugarcane and 10 per cent in other crops. Monitoring of one time controlled land application of spentwash, Indian Cane Power ltd, Duggavathi, Davanagere: As per the Agronomic plan submitted by distillery, treated distillery spent wash was applied one time before the onset of Monsoon on 42 farmers fields in the villages Kadathi, Telagi and Yedihalli. The treated spentwash was applied on the basis of nitrogen requirement of the crops before onset of the Monsoon. The effect of treated spentwash on the performance of sugarcane, maize and other crops were recorded. In all the crops there was increase in the yield. Effect of spentwash was also studied on soil health. Soil samples were taken at 0-30 cm and cm depth before spentwash application and after harvest application. The analysis report of the soil samples revealed that there was no adverse effect of treated spentwash on soil health. However, there was increase in potassium to the extent 362 kg/ha due to treated spentwash application.

136 124 Monitoring of one time controlled land application of spentwash, SLN distilleries, Garag: As per the Agronomic plan submitted by Distillery, treated distillery spent wash was applied in Garag, Hangarki, Dubbanmardi, Madanbhavi, Venkatapur, Neeralkatti and Tadakod villages, one time before the onset of Monsoon. The treated spentwash was applied on 87 farmers fields to study the effect of treated spentwash on crop yields viz., Sugarcane, Sorghum, Groundnut, Soybean, Cotton etc. Soil samples were also taken before application of treated spentwash and after harvest of the crops. Results of soil analysis indicated that there was no adverse effect on soil health due to the application of treated spentwash. Monitoring of one time controlled land application of spentwash, Ravindra distilleries, Bidar: As per the Agronomic plan submitted by Distillery, treated distillery spent wash was applied in 2 villages Edlapur and Kamtan. A total of 329 soil samples were analyzed before and after harvest of the crop for some of the important parameters and the results indicated that there was no adverse effect on soil health due to the application of treated spentwash. Investigation on the Effect of fugitive emissions of KFIL, Bevinahlli Koppal on crop growth, yield, soil health and ground water quality in surrounding areas: A project on effect of fugitive emissions of KFIL, Bevinahlli Koppal on crop growth, yield, soil health and ground water quality was undertaken in surrounding villages including Bevinahalli, Shahapur, Kanakapur, Rudrapur, Hitnal, Ginigera, Hosalli, Lingadahalli and Hirekasankandi. Soil and water samples were collected and analysed from the farmers field to study the effect of fugitive emissions of KFIL, Bevinahlli. Air monitoring studies in KFIL premises: The area of influence of suspended particulate matter (PM10) was monitored by keeping dust sampler from July to December in the major wind direction at different grid points ranging from 0 to 1500 m distance from the KFIL factory. SPM load in the air was very high in factory premises and reduced with increase in distance from the factory. SPM load was 884 µg/m 3 factory premises and was least (120 µg/m 3) in the at 1500 m away from the factory. In Bevinahalli village which is very near to the factory SPM load was 380 µg/m 3 at 500m distance which was above the permissible limits, indicating possible effect on crop yield. Water quality assessment: To know the interactive effect of SPM on ground water quality, ground water samples were collected from bore wells located at different distance from the factory. Results of water analysis indicated that there was no contamination of suspended particulate matter or any other contaminants in the ground water. Long term experiments: research accomplishments Effect of distillery spentwash on maize growth, yield and soil health: Secondary treated spentwash was applied to maize in two irrigations during kharif The management strategy included application of 60 per cent of the calculated quantity of spentwash fortnight before sowing of maize. The remaining 40 per cent spentwash was applied before flowering. The highest maize yield was observed with 1 ½ level of N through fertilizer (57.40 q ha -1 ) compared to the same level of N supplied through spentwash (43.50 q ha -1 ). There was a slight build up of nutrients like N and K along with organic carbon in the soil after harvest of the crop. Soil salinity also increased over the years as evidenced by EC of 1.2 ds/m in 2004 to 3.77 ds/m in

137 Increase in salinity of the soil was mainly due to the continuous application of treated spentwash on the same field for every year. Hence, it s concluded that the continuous application of spentwash is not advisable. With these findings the long-term project stands concluded ANIMAL SCIENCE Studies on occurrence of long bone fractures and their management in the back yard livestock: The incidence of long bone fractures in back yard livestock was studied. The Type II External Skeletal Fixation (ESF) was modified for the animals and evaluated. A total of 354 cases of fractures were presented at the UAS Veterinary hospital. The species included were cattle (116), buffaloes (14), sheep (38), goats (28), dogs (103), cats (18), wild birds(16), monkies (7), deer (2), and mangoose(2). The Type II-EFS was employed on long bone fracture of 11,4,11 and 6 cases of cattle, buffalo, sheep and goats respectively. The radiological examinations showed that the modified type II- EFS provides good stability and allows long bone fracture healing in live stock. The technique is suitable for radius and ulna, metacarpal, tibia and metatarsal bone fracture repair. Studies on Olecranon bursitis and its management in Bullocks: Olecranon bursitis is the capped elbow of bullocks. A total of 42 cases with various conditions were presented in the Veterinary hospital. Treatment was given according to the severity of the condition. 18 cases were acute cystic in nature followed by chronic systic (8), purulent (5), etc. Surgical enblock excision was successful and effective treatment for olecranon bursitis particularly for recurrent cystic, proliferative and fibrous form in bullocks as it provided rapid resolution and is a more economical approach than conservative treatment in long run. Clinical and Haemato-biochemical, comparative studies on omasal impaction and TRP and P in cattle: TRP & P is a sporadic disease in ruminants caused by perforation of the reticulum due to ingestion of foreign materials, which is a common cause of abdominal surgery in cattle. 12 cows were presented in this study. They were classified into apparently healthy group (control), signs of omasal impaction and clinical signs of TRP & P. The clinical examination, Haematological examination and biochemical analysis of blood was done and surgical treatment of second and third group was carried out. It was concluded as follows. Though the two clinical entities omasal impaction and traumatic reticuloperitonitis and pericardiatis appear clinically identical in the initial stages, they can be differentiated. In omasal impaction there is absence of high temperature, presence of empty or mucous filled rectum, no abnormal heart sounds, absence of metallic foreign bodies, absence of anemia and presence of mild dehydration and electrolyte compared to TRP and P. In case of TRP and P there is a marked rise in levels of AST, ALT, BUN, Creatinine and most importantly Fibrinogen indicating severe damage to the muscles, kidney, liver and heart than omasal impaction. In initial stages modern diagnostics like radiography and ultrasonography is essential. Morphological characterization of Mouli Sheep breed: Mouli sheep breed is a unique population and it was characterized for the first time. Mouli breed of sheep with a population of 3.25 lakh is lesser known breed of sheep with high potentiality for meat production Mouli breed of sheep is found in Vijayapur district and a few talukas of Kalaburgi district. These are known by the synonyms like Unne kuri and Sangola kuri. A total of 153 adult males and 422 adult females were measured for their morphological characters. The

138 126 average flock size recorded was 95.34±6.79. It is characterized by Roman nose, drooping long ears ( 97.4%) and long tail (male:20.47cm and female 18.63cm). Coat colour is predominantly white with brown patches. The body is covered with rough hairs and shearing is done twice a year. Both sexes are polled. Adult males weigh an average of kg and adult females about 42 kg. The birth weight and body weight at 3 month old male is about 3.76 and19 kg and that of female is about 3.55 and 17kg respectively. This is a migratory sheep and travels km, from December to June RURAL HOME SCIENCE HUMAN DEVELOPMENT & FAMILY STUDIES Prevalence and socio-economic status of academically backward school children in rural areas: The population for the study comprised of school going children from rural areas of Dharwad taluk from 7 clusters. Out of 2570 children 613 were identified as academically backward, thus the prevalence of academically backward children was found to be 21.7%. Village wise prevalence indicated that it was found more in Garag village than Devarahubballi and Managundi villages. Class wise prevalence indicated that prevalence was more among 9 th standard (43.07%) followed by 8 th (30.51%) and 7 th (26.43%) standards. Prevalence was found more among boys (61%) than girls (38.98%). Majority of the academically backward children belonged to middle (66%) and 33 per cent belonged to poor socio-economic status. Risk factors associated with academic underachievement of rural children at familial and school levels: Majority of the children expressed academic problems for academic backwardness as difficulty to understand the subjects (67.3%) followed by slow in writing (62.1%), unable to answer questions in the exams (57.3%) and do not like some subjects (53.6%). The familial reasons were lack of education (33.6%), lack of time to study as involved in family work (26%), family disputes and no guidance and help by family members (20%). Health problems expressed by academically backward children were lack of concentration due to tiredness (40.3%), h eadache (30%), depression (26%) and worries (22.7%) leading to academic backwardness. Vocational interest of academically backward rural children: The vocational interest of academically backward children was assessed in ten areas viz. literary, scientific, executive, commercial, constructive, artistic, agriculture, persuasive, social and household. The results revealed that majority of the children had low level of interest in all the vocational areas. Significant gender difference was observed in areas such as literary, executive, artistic, social and household areas wherein girls had higher mean values compared to boys. Significant difference between classes was observed in all vocational areas wherein children from 8 th and 9 th standards showed average vocational interest in literary, scientific, executive, artistic, social and household areas than 7 th standard children. Socio-emotional problems of academically backward children: Socio-emotional problems of 211 academically backward children revealed that majority of children had moderate level of socio-emotional problems and about 16 per cent had severe problems. More number of boys had severe socio-emotional

139 127 problems compared to girls in Kotur and Mummigatti villages. However, no significant association was observed between standard and socio-emotional problems of children. Socio-economic status had positive and significant influence on socio-emotional problems of children. Higher percentage of children expressed that they had difficulty in expressing love and affection (36%), difficulty in making friends (30.3%), not liked by many people (29.9%), do not feel happy (23.2%) and not interested to play in a group (21.8%) as socio - emotional problems. Innovative strategies for quality of life of children and elderly: A sample of 158 elderly was selected from three villages of Dharwad taluk. The results revealed that no association was found between mental health, life satisfaction, ADL, age, gender and caste and socio economic status (SES) indicating that the y were more or less similar with a high percentage in low levels but a highly significant positive association was found between SES and caste. The post test indicated that the mental health and life satisfaction was found to be significantly better among both the gender i.e., Female elderly being beneficial more than male elderly. Thus the programme was effective in targeting the three cardinal aspects of happy ageing as maintaining physical, mental health, good adjustment and life satisfaction. Strengthening farm families for quality family life: The research study was conducted in three districts of UAS jurisdiction. The sample comprised of 150 farm women in the age range of years from six villages. The results revealed that more than half of the rural mothers belonged to average (55% & 69%) and low levels (37% & 31%) of family environment and parenting satisfaction. Age, education and SES had no significant influence on parenting practices and marital satisfaction. Rural mothers were unsatisfied with their married life (57%), however those who belonged to years were more unsatisfied (58%) than years. There is a need for innovative intervention programmes for rural farm women for quality life. Enhancing socio-emotional adjustment of girls attaining puberty at an early age: Fifty girls who attained their menarche at an early age were identified from two villages of Bijapur taluk. Regarding their knowledge about puberty, majority of the girls were unaware of menarche onset and menstrual cycle length (68%), menstruation process (82%), age at menopause (74%) and consumption of nutritious food during menstrual cycle (78%). The intervention was carried out in collaboration with Family Planning Association of India. The post test results revealed that the knowledge of respondents with regard to puberty, menstruation and nutritious food intake knowledge improved. With regard to social and emotional adjustment, there was an increasing trend. Development of Stimulatory Play Materials for Sensitizing and Optimizing Cognitive Development of Rural Infants: A sample of 151 infants of birth to 12 months was selected from seven villages from five taluks of four districts of UAS Jurisdiction. The cognitive abilities of these infants were assessed. Intervention was given to the mothers of selected infants through developed packages and stimulatory play materials. Assessment and intervention results depicted the use of quality toys and play materials that enhanced the child s psychomotor, mental abilities, social skills, language and emotional behaviour. Acceptability of toys by rural mothers found that toys are user-friendly, harmless, and can be used in multi purposive play.

140 FOOD SCIENCE AND NUTRITION Nutritional status and cognitive abilities of preschool children consuming breakfast was studied in rural and urban areas of Dharwad. When preschool children were classified based on IAP classification higher proportion of both boys and girls were in moderate malnutrition with around 25 % each in mild and severe malnutrition. The intake of all foods was lower than the suggested balance diet. The intake of micronutrients viz., β carotene, pyridoxine and ascorbic acid were lower than 25 per cent of adequacy. About 70 % of both rural and urban children were regular consumers of breakfast. Breakfast consumption had beneficial effect on cognitive ability, while nutritional status had positive impact on cognitive abilities of preschool children. Nutritional studies on 200 rural obese adolescent children showed that half of them were overweight, 17 % were obese and 30 % were likely to be overweight. Most of them were abdominally obese, spent less time in exercise and vigorous activities and had a habit of consuming bakery, road side and fried foods. Adequacy of energy, fat and sugars was met but that of micronutrients were poor. Nutrition education on obesity to the adolescent children, parents and teachers brought about positive changes in knowledge, attitudes and practices related to food habits and physical activity, although lipid profile remained unchanged EXTENSION AND COMMUNICATION MANAGEMENT Impact of nutrition and health education intervention on rural high school students: With regard to nutrition, after the education intervention the mean knowledge score increased in the selected chapters of food (14.01 to 15.63), balanced diet (14.59 to 16.53), healthy cooking methods (14.79 to 16.76), minor millets (14.37 to 17.28) and water and dietary fibre (15.21 to 17.28). Overall mean knowledge score about nutrition increased from to after education intervention. With regard to health, after the education intervention the mean knowledge score increased in the selected chapters of personal health (15.36 to 19.12), school health (14.17 to 17.55), protein energy malnutrition (13.65 to 16.29), community nutrition (13.47 to 16.53) and deficiency diseases (12.65 to 16.36). Overall mean knowledge score about health increased from to after education intervention. The overall mean retention score of the students with respect to knowledge about nutrition was before the intervention which increased to after 30 days of the intervention. The overall mean retention score of the students with respect to knowledge about health was before the intervention which increased to after 30 days of the intervention. Effect of extension teaching methods in diffusion of nutritional aspects of minor millets for rural women: 1. Millets are also known as poor man s cereal. With regard to nutritive value, millets score over most of other grains. Individual, Group and Mass methods were used with variety of teaching aids to diffuse the information. 2. The knowledge gained was tested as pre and post test. For this purpose 3 folders were developed on minor millets. The different teaching methods selected for study were folder with lecture, method demonstration, radio lessons broadcasted were used. 3. Cent percent knowledge was observed regarding usage of finger millet, foxtail millet and little millet after using different methods. Knowledge was high as % in the village Narendra where all the methods were used. In other villages it was 70 to 79 %.

141 129 Content analysis of English rural magazines: Out of 803 articles from 4 magazines, maximum articles belonged to general information category (13.60%) followed by environmental science and agricultural crops with per cent each. The analysis of the readability showed that articles in LEISA India (50%) and Vatika (35%) magazines were in the difficult category. Most of the articles in Kissan world were in standard category (28%) while in Bhoomi (37.50%) articles were in fairly difficult. Majority of the readers (36.60%) belonged to medium reading habits. 75 per cent of the readers read specific articles in the magazines for half an hour to one hour. Education, Occupation, Social participation, Mass media Utilization and extension contact had exhibited significant association with satisfaction level of the readers towards the magazines. Research Highlights of Staff Research Projects Testing and standardization of different M-learning module for home science technology: Mobile learning modules on balanced diet for women was developed in 4 different formats viz. Audio, Video lecture, Video drama and Video animation. All the four modules distributed to the rural women showed that there was significant increase in the knowledge compared to pre test after viewing/listening to the modules Feminization of agriculture and gender empowerment: The study on feminization of agriculture revealed that in chilli production women played a major role in transplanting (91.33 %) and weeding (83.30 %), while participation in pesticide and weedicide application was nil. Women in cotton cultivation had high knowledge about the varieties (98.00 %) and less knowledge about chemical control method for flower drop (3.33 %) and weedicides (4.66 %). Major constraint faced in cotton cultivation is lack of knowledge in disease management (50.66 %). Women were empowered to the extent of % in control and use of income. Knowledge intervention for women involved in vegetable growing- development of extension methodology: 1. The study on intervention programme for women vegetable cultivators showed that none of the selected 60 women had ever been exposed to any agriculture related training programme. 2. Their knowledge about eco-friendly management practice showed that they had a fair knowledge of cultural practices for management of pest and diseases but were not at all of the biological pest control methods. 3. More than 80 per cent had not adopted Integrated Nutrient Management (INM) and Integrated Management (IPM) practices. 4. The impact of the two day training programme showed that there was a significant difference in knowledge after the training programme with a large majority of 82 per cent saying that they would adopt (symbolic adoption) these practices in future. Pest FAMILY RESOURCES MANAGEMENT Characterization of drudgery of women in the Production environment and Assessment of Technology Packages in mitigating drudgery Development / up scaling/ transfer and evaluation of packages of drudgery reducing options in the Chilli Production system. Field validation of harvest bag: In harvesting of chilli with harvest bag, the pace of work will be reduced as compared to traditional method along with work output as it increased the labour needed. But it reduced body disorder like pain in lower back and knee.

142 130 Characterization of drudgery of women in Maize Production system: The characterization of drudgery is made by using totally eight parameters, namely gender participation, activities performed, physical loads carried, postural discomfort, physiological load, occupational disorders, time duration and technologies used. Dibbling, top dressing, weeding, are completely women exclusive activities, whereas cob carrying activity is observed to be women dominating activity in maize production system. Equal participation by both men and women is noted in collection of stalks activities. More than 8 kg weight was carried by women while performing collection of stalks, top dressing, weeding, and cob carrying activities. Maximum percentage of women have given higher scoring for the pain experienced in lower back in most of the activities. Among the five activities performed by women in maize production system topdressing of fertilizer, dibbling and cob carrying scored maximum perceived physiological load followed by weeding and collection of stalks. Topdressing of fertilizer was given maximum physiological work load rating followed by dibbling, and cob carrying activities. Higher pain rating was given to lower back pain by maximum percentage of women. The work load against time duration was maximum for weeding followed by top dressing of fertilizer, collection of stalks and cob carrying activities. Development, up scaling, transfer and evaluation of packages of drudgery reducing options in the groundnut production system. Field validation of groundnut strippers: Among the three groundnut strippers, KVK UAS Model and CIAE model have proved better in pace of work, increased work output and reduced the number of labour required and saved the labour wages. The drudgery experience in all parameters was observed to be higher in KVK and CIAE Bhopal strippers compared to traditional method of groundnut stripping. For this intervention, appropriate rest schedules while working with these improved technologies can enhance the efficiency of the workers and work output. Field validation of groundnut decorticators: Performance of all three types of groundnut decorticators proved better in pace of work increased work output and reduced the labour wages and labour required compared to traditional method. Among the three deocrticators UAS Raichur model proved its excellence compared to CIAE Bhopal model and UAS Bangalore model. Characterization of drudgery of women in dairy production system: The results showed the milking activity was women exclusive activity and feeding the animal, fodder collection, watering the animals and cleaning of cattle shed were the women dominated activities. Cleaning of cattle shed was given maximum physiological work load rating followed by fodder collection, and watering the animals. Majority of farm women perceived posture discomfort and pain in lower leg, lower back, upper back, wrist and finger. Ergonomic assessment of the clothing designed for various agricultural activities: Protective clothing consists of hand gloves, head gear; mask and apron were given to the farm women working in chilli and bengalgram harvesting. It was found that head gear, hand glove and apron were found to be good as they reduced the absorption of heat and burning of palm during harvesting of chilli. In bengalgram harvesting, women felt that the protective clothing reduced itching and roughening of fingers, osteomycities of fingers, eye irritation and burning of hand and feet.

143 131 Popularization and adoption of fuel and energy saving cooking devices among rural farm families of ALOP: The surakshit cooker, developed in the department of Family Resource Management during was modified and tested in the laboratory. The modified cooker was compared with the basic model of the surakshit cooker. The results revealed that, among the four models, the model with 16 gauze of 10 liters capacity was found to be better compared to traditional cooking method. The saving in time up to 40% and fuel wood up to 45% was found among the improved Surakshit cooker compared to traditional cooking method TEXTILES AND APPAREL DESIGNING AICRP Trials Extraction and characterization of Cassia tora seed gum: Extraction percentage, swelling index, viscosity and moisture content of the Cassia tora seed powder was higher compared to the Cassia tora (dal) gum. Carbohydrate content of the seed powder was per cent with total starch content of per cent. The sedimentation volume and the flow rate of the gum were higher than seed powder. This made the seed powder more viscous and suitable for use in the printing paste. Concentration of the gums was directly proportional to the sedimentation volume and the flow rate. Hence Cassia tora, a weed can be expedited for the seeds that have desirable characteristics as binders and thickeners in textile printing. Application of Luffa tuberosa starch on warp yarn and quality assessment: Single 60s warp yarn was sized with 1 and 2 per cent Luffa tuberosa starch and commercially used arrowroot starch. Add on percentage of the Luff starch sized yarn was on par with the arrow root sized yarn. Luffa sizing imparted more evenness parameters by reducing the number of thick thin and neps in the yarn. On the other hand, the reduction in the yarn hairiness was maximum with arrowroot sized warp yarn followed by the luffa sized yarn and control. The tensile strength parameters were higher for the arrowroot size followed by the luffa starch. Irrespective of the type of starch, yarn improvement parameters were directly proportional to the concentration of the starch used. Standardization of printing recipe using Cassia tora seed gum/mango kernel starch: Printing paste recipe using different concentrations of cassia seed powder was standardized. Cotton and silk fabrics were printed (block and screen) using marigold dye with 2 per cent Stannous Chloride and Copper Sulphate+Ferrous Sulphate. Visual evaluation revealed that 5 percent cassia powder and 2 per cent mango kernel starch produced good quality prints. Light fastness of the marigold prints with cassia thickener was better for screen printing and block printed samples on both cotton and silk samples. On the other hand mango kernel imparted good to better light fastness to the samples. Wash fastness, rubbing and the perspiration fastness of the cassia gum was found to be better than the mango kernel starch. Cost of printing one metre fabric with marigold dye and cassia gum was approximately Rs.30.00

144 132 Production of self designed fabric and product development: From the secondary data it is learnt that the efficiency of ginning in conversion of kapas into lint is 49% and that of spinning is 64%. Eventually the total impact of both ginning and spinning is 36%. However, the value added from kapas to lint is 2.32 folds and that of cotton yarn is 5.82 folds. Further, the study revealed that fabric characters like, weight, cloth thickness, yarn count, threads per inch, bending length, crease recovery and shrinkage shall be improved on scouring, bleaching, mercerization, sanforization, tentering, and calendaring. As per the KES FB evaluation, the fabric is suitable for winter women s wear. Amount remitted under SRP 71 was Rs 45,435/- Innovative technologies for the livelihood of handloom artisans and folklore: It is found that handloom, power loom, dobby, jacquard and electronic technologies are the potential mode/s of ornamenting the fabric. Woven patterns in the border, buttta and pallav add novelty to the Designer s saris. Several unique styles in saris can be produced by changing colour ways in the border, body and pallav; further adding value can be added by space dyed yarns, embroidery, block printing and screen printing. Weaving is a remunerative occupation, when novel fabrics are produced using skill and innovative ideas. But more than 60% of the handloom weavers have shifted from their traditional occupation because of lack of premium price for their produce, low wages associated with laborious and low production, indebtedness, lack of variety, lack of job opportunities, influence of education on the younger generation to find better opportunities with better challenge and in search of jobs with better livelihood security. Amount remitted till date under SRP 72 is Rs 54, Impact of sizing materials on structural, performance, durable and comfort properties of cottons: The study revealed that 10 % starch is the most suitable consistency recommended for fine muslin cloth; dilution may be selected as per the requirement or stiffness desired. The starch from natural is to be prepared by hot process which evolves higher viscosity and results into stiffer finish. But synthetic being mild and cold processed has milder stiffness. Single wash cannot completely desize the fabric, hence can be ironed and reused for 2-3 times. Strain the starch solution through fine sieve or cloth, to minimize patchy effect on dark coloured fabrics. Image quality analysis of digital printed textiles: Black, blue, yellow, green and red pantone colours were selected to print on pre treated cotton and silk samples. The colour strength values of all digitally printed colours were higher at 5 minutes steaming than 10 minutes. Irrespective of colours and fibre contentincrease in cloth count, cloth thickness, blending length and crease recovery angle. Printed cotton and silk samples showed higher values of colour strength and lower values of reflectance values compared to control samples. Black, red and green printed samples depicted higher values of colour strength to sunlight, wash, perspiration, rubbing and sublimation tests. Digital textile inks greatly reduce the cost and production time associated with textiles and other short-run print jobs. Cost per square meter for cotton is - Rs 220/- and silk - Rs 385/-. Developed design catalogue shall help the customers to refer and deliver the products within short time. Dyers, printers, designers and the buyers are able to explore quickly, inexpensively with sharp and effective dye shades and

145 133 prints on different types of textile materials namely cotton, silk and blends. Hence, simplify the whole design process. Innovative programmes in eco-friendly clothing: Natural dyeing with annatto seeds, madder roots, pomegranate rind and tulsi leaf extracts followed by steaming was carried out on cotton fabrics. The total phenolic content of pomegranate rind extract was maximum while the total flavonoid content of madder and pomegranate ring was highest. Madder dyed+steamed fabrics exhibited maximum (3.9mm) zone of inhibition against S. aureus. Almost all the dyed+steamed sample mordanted with CS exhibited positive results for antimicrobial activity. Steaming enhanced the colour of pomegranate rind and annatto seed dyed samples. Light fastness of tulsi leaf and pomegranate rind dyed samples improved on steaming. However, other parameters were on par with the dyed samples. Designing and development of khadi products: Four towels with different weave combinations and colours were designed and constructed on handloom viz., fully white towel with plain and honey comb weave alternatively in a basket manner, Stripe towel (White with coloured lined border) with honey comb weave on both the edges and plain weave at the centre, Checks towel with plain and honeycomb weave woven alternately and the striped napkin with only plain weave. The costs of production of each towel were Rs , Rs , Rs and Rs respectively. Consumers preferred and rated first for striped towels followed by fully white and also preferred napkin for its colour. However, towels were subjected for 10 and 20 washes and its performance characteristics were compared with the locally available plain and honey comb woven towels. The absorbency of the fully white and striped towel was found to be non significant compared to the totally honey comb woven towel. Development of style lines in kurtis for adolescents: Five each cotton (Cotton kurtis: Hand embroidered A-line kurti, pleated yoke fitted style of kurti, Loops and string kurti, roll-up sleeve shirt type kurti and appliqué worked halter neckline kurti) and silk kurtis (Silk kurtis: Block printed side cut kurti, Combination of plain and printed material kurti, ruffled kurti with flare at hem, draw string sleeve kurti and shirring kurti having straps) were designed and developed. Majority of the adolescents preferred hand embroidered A-line and pleated yoke fitted style of cotton kurtis and block printed side cut and combination of plain and printed material silk kurtis. The cost of production of cotton kurtis ranged from Rs. 790/- to Rs. 1270/- and that of silk kurti ranged from Rs. 1200/- to Rs. 2200/-. GOK Projects Commercialization of digital printing center: Different types of value added textiles and apparels namely-shirts, bags, purses, toppers and wall hangings, scarfs etc were designed and constructed using high-speed sewing, digital textile printing and digital embroidery techniques. Cost of production of value added products for various applications were calculated and sold with brand & price tag. Brand and price tag developed for the products enhanced the sale of products. Remitted Rs 40,835/- to the University. PG Research Eco-friendly antimicrobial finishes on natural colour cotton knits: Waxed NCC yarn exhibited better coefficient of friction and reduced yarn hairiness that could withstand the abrasion caused during fabric

146 134 construction. Wale per inch, course per inch, stitch length, stitch density and grams per square meter, bursting strength of double jersey fabric was higher than single jersey fabric. Fabric finished with neem extracts showed greater zone of inhibition followed by cinnamon, asan and jamun treated fabrics. Characterization of microcapsules through SEM analyses revealed the adherence of the microcapsules between fibre assembly and the size ranging from 4 µm to 22µm. Among the treatment methods, higher zone of inhibition was observed on fabric finished with direct method than the microcapsule coated fabrics. Fabrics treated with microcapsules are more wash durable than fabric finished with direct method, because of the delayed release of phyto constituents from thick wall shell. Documentation and contemporizing the ethnic costumes of conservative societies inhabited in Karnataka: The historical background and evolution of traditional costumes, constructional details of men and women attire, examined the traditional folk headgears, footwear, jewellery and accessories of 5 conservative societies viz., Kunbi, Lambani, Siddi, Gouli and Halakki were studies and documented. Incorporating the style features of the traditional women costumes 5 contemporary dresses were designed, developed and asessed for acceptance. Irrespective of style features, colour, value addition, accessories, comfort and cost, the preference was given to off shoulder kurta ( Kunbi style), followed by Anarkali kurta ( Lambani style), single shoulder kurta (Halakki style), over lapped dhoti pant (Gouli style) and skirt with strapped bodice (Siddi style). Designing adaptive clothing styles for visually impaired children: Survey to know the clothing selection and laundering practices, explicit recognition processes in identification of clothes and related problems, revealed that 50 each visually impaired boys and girls were always assisted by parents, teachers while purchasing clothes. Colour identification, pattern selection, matching of upper and lower garments, washing of garments was major problem reported by visually impaired adolescents. Majority of the respondents opined that, Braille labels were highly suitable and functional followed by buttons, appliqué/patch work and bead work in identification of garment colour, style, right/ wrong and front/back of the garment. Among the garments, divided skirt and blouse, kameez- salwar, top wraparound skirt and leggings were found to be highly acceptable by the visually impaired adolescents. Blend analysis of trouser materials: From the survey results it was found that, the polyviscose and terrywool blended trouser materials were available in majority of the shops and also preferred by majority of the respondents. Blend analysis test revealed non-significant differences in blends of polyviscose and Terrywool blends (55:45 and 75:25) between the washings and among the geometrical, performance, durable and comfort properties. While significant difference was noticed in abrasion resistance (cylces) before and after washings in all the selected blended trouser materials. Clothing merchandising and consumer behaviour: Discounts and window display are the sales promotion techniques that attracted majority of the consumers while purchasing garments. Majority of them preferred branded and fashionable garments because of quality, comfort and durability. However, age, education, income, family size and type of the consumers had a significant impact on consumer buying behaviour variables. Consumer ranked price, style and fit, brand name, colour, design, fibre content, fashion, texture and care label in order of factors considered while purchasing garments.

147 135 Asymmetrical outfits with variegated hemlines: On the basis of variegated skirt silhouettes and hem lengths, 5 asymmetrical skirts with tops designed, developed and were further beautified by five different value addition technologies. On the whole both college girls and textile experts gave first rank to hand kerchief (2.84), followed by circular (2.74), peplum (2.72), fish tail (2.59) and bell skirts (2.54). Among the five value additions, maximum preference was given for application of fringes, self designed flowers, and use of wooden buttons. The costs of the production of the skirts were found to be reasonable, except for hand kerchief skirt which was found to be expensive by the college girls AGRICULTURAL EXTENSION, AGRIBUSINESS MANAGEMENT AND AGRICULTURAL STATISTICS Teaching Effectiveness in UAS, Dharwad: Evaluation by UG Students: Teaching Effectiveness scale was developed to evaluate teaching effectiveness of UAS teachers. The scale was administered to sixty one teachers of AC Dharwad. The study identified personality traits (170) and instructional skills (64) of teachers. Majority (59%) of teachers were good in teaching. Nearly one third (28%) of the teachers were average and the lowest percentage were excellent (7%) and around 6 per cent of the teachers were poor in teaching. This scale can be used to all farm universities in India. Impact Analysis of SFC Project on Advanced Research and Up scaling of Dry land Technologies in Northern Dry Zone of Karnataka: The study was conducted on 280 farmers of Hullur village of Ron taluk of Gadag district and Honwad of Bijapur district. Majority (90%) of the farmers expressed that the yield of sorghum and bengalgram increased by 15-20% and also opined that the intercropping of sorghum + chickpea and safflower + chickpea were better to get monetary benefits (Rs.1500 to 2500). In farmers view, the hybrids of sunflower variety KBSH-44 and DSFH-3 yield levels were not satisfactory hybrids compared with other private Popularization of transplanting technique in Redgram in Vijayapur district: The demonstrations were taken up on 10 acres of different farmers fields of Indi and Vijayapura taluks of Vijaypura district. Totally 5 farm families were selected and demonstration were conducted on transplanted redgram on the farmers field during second fortnight of July The farmers benefited by increase in yield (4.6%) due to redgram transplanting technique over drill sown method and also expressed that it is suitable where protective irrigation facilities are available. conducted Strengthening of farm families for quality life with innovative farm technologies: The study was in Dharwad district of Karnataka during considering maximum area under wheat cultivation. Two talukas viz. Kundagol and Dharwad of Dharwad district were selected. Demonstrations (36) on wheat varieties UAS 415 and UAS 304 were conducted. The study reveled that UAS 415 and UAS 304 varieties yielded q/a and q/a respetively and control variety 6.75 q/a and 8.08q/a respectively. Status and Farmers Expectations in Mechanization of Sugarcane Cultivation: The study was conducted in Belagavi and Bagalkot districts on status and farmers expectation of machanization in sugarcane cultivation. The sample size was 603.The study revealed that majority of farmers expressed lack

148 136 of mechanization in planting of sets, cane cutter, planter and pit digger as well as harvesters. Demonstration of latest farm machineries in farmers field was the major expectation of farmers (86.06%). Farmers also expressed that institutional provision for custom hiring of farm machinery (81.26 %), establishment of service centers at local level (70.95 %) and light weight farm machinery to avoid soil compaction (68.65%). A Study on Knowledge and Adoption of dry grape production technology by the farmers in Northern Karnataka: The study was conducted in Vijayapur and Bagalkot districts. Total sample size was 400 grape growers. Study depicted that majority of grape growers of Vijaypura (90 %) and Bagalkot (92.50 %) districts had knowledge about grape varieties used for resin production and almost all farmers under study adopted chemicals for resin production. Farmers also expressed constraints like labor, market and cold storage facilities Farmers contingency measures for climate change adaptations: The study was conducted during in the purposively selected eight talukas of Dharwad, Haveri, Gadag and Belagavi districts representing climate change intensity areas in Zone 3 and 8 with a sample of 240. Study outcomes indicated that hybrid Bt cotton was sown till the end of September month. Recommended intercropping systems were not preferred due to increased management practices. Castor, Sesamum, Horsegram and other recommended crops were not grown due to lack of improved technology and not aware of profitability and market. Most of the farmers were found to sow the crops without leaving land fallow. Farmers were found to follow their own intercropping systems, row proportions and spacing according to their convenience. The results revealed that knowledge of crop contingency measures was known to 70 to 80 per cent farmers of zone 3 and 8. The adoption of kharif crop planning highlight that a high percent of farmers (60-75%) preferred Bt cotton followed by groundnut, maize, green gram, chilli, onion, sorghum, and sunflower crops and intercropping of Chilli+Onion (1:5), Chilli+Cotton, Sorghum+Tur (6:1), Bt Cotton+Greengram (1:2). Whereas pearlmillet, foxtail and horsegram were preferred by less than percent farmers due to less profit and importance was given more to commercial crops. For the delayed sowings farmers thought of alternate crops and other varieties only after 2nd fortnight of July. For the delayed sowing (August) farmers in zone 3 were found to take up sunflower, maize, Bt cotton, coriander, fenugreek, foxtail, Jayadar cotton, Jayadar cotton+chilli intercropping and farmers of zone 8 preferred Bt cotton, Sunflower, and maize crops. Content Analysis of Kannada Farm Magazines: The study was conducted in Dharwad, Belagavi, Haveri Gadag and Uttara Kannada districts by selecting the farm magazines like Krishi Munnade, Karnataka Vyavasaya patrike and Siri samriddhi. Totally 120 subscribers of different magazines were selected for the study. The study reveled that the educated farmers up to high school level (30%) are in the habit of reading farm magazines. The content analysis revealed that, the publishers gave more importance to the articles related to agriculture (46.25%) followed b y horticulture crops (24.82%). Less importance was given for the articles on animal husbandry (8.04%) aspects. Retention of rural youth in Agriculture: The study was conducted in Sutagatti of Savadatti taluka in Belagavi district. The total sample size was 35 rural youth.the intervention such as awareness creation,

149 137 motivation, counseling and follow-up counseling were found to be suitable for retention of rural youth in agriculture. The respondents under study developed favorable attitude and innovativeness towards agriculture. Rehabilitation and Restoration of Biodiversity in Mined area of Narain Mines in Chitradurga, Karnartaka: The research project was conducted on restoration and rehabilitation of biodiversity SESAGOA mining site with an objective to identify and evaluate different shrubs, grasses and tree species on waste dumps and other areas and to explore possibilities of local community participation in restoration and maintenance of bio-diversity in mined out area. The study reveled that the forest plant species such as Pongamia pinnata, Cassia fistula, Casurina equisetifolia and Gliricidia sepium performed better with respect to plant height and also the performance observed was better in matted area over un-matted area with a spacing of 3m X 3m and 4m X 4m for plant species. Strengthening of Agricultural Marketing and Agri-business Management in North in Karnataka: The information of agro-climatic conditions, general aspects about geographical conditions, markets, transport facilities, storage and warehousing facilities, input supplying firms and dealers, processing units and other infrastructure with regards to agricultural marketing have been collected and updated. The information on SPS stipulation for the export of various commodities for different countries were collected, updated and were made available to the interested export oriented farmers. Apart from this data, various aspects of agricultural commodities in all the 12 districts of north Karnataka has been collected and updated. Marketing profile of individual district was prepared on the above aspects and charts have been prepared for the purpose of training the farmers. The data on arrivals and prices of important agricultural commodities were collected to provide price forecasting to the farmers on regular basis. The modalities of training on various aspects of marketing have also been finalized. Four trainings for farmers have been conducted during the year. Agricultural Market Intelligence and Market Planning: This project was initiated during November, The project relates to the seven districts of Karnataka under the jurisdiction of UAS, Dharwad. Under the project, five major commodities in each of the districts and five major markets for each commodity were selected for in-depth study. The data pertaining to monthly modal prices and arrivals were collected and digitized for a period of 20 years. The price forecasts were made for the following crops in concerned districts and markets.

The cost, returns and profit per acre were worked out for cotton, maize and paddy for marginal, small and medium farmers. It was found that the costs and returns of all crops in medium sized farms were higher compared to small and marginal farmers. It is because medium farmers used higher quantity of inputs and realized more output. With respect to cotton and maize prices in both Dharwad and Haveri Districts, actual prices were found to be less than MSP during , , & This might have been due to the higher production coupled with less competition during these years. During & , actual prices of paddy in Hangal market were more than MSP. As during the rest of the years, the quality of paddy brought to MSP centers was less than the expected quality. In order to analyze the long run seasonal variation in the prices of cotton, maize and paddy in the selected markets, seasonal indices for prices were computed by adopting 12 month moving average method. The seasonal indices for cotton were high in the months of January, February, March and April in all the markets (Hubli, Annigeri, Haveri and Ranebennur markets). The seasonal indices for maize during the months of July, August and September were high in all the markets (Hubli, Dharwad, Haveri and Ranebennur markets). In the case of paddy, the seasonal index was the highest in the month of December (105.21). The percentage of farmers having awareness about MSP scheme in both Dharwad and Haveri districts was very low. In Dharwad district, the awareness about MSP scheme was found to be per cent in the case of marginal farmers, per cent in the case of small farmers and per cent in the case of medium farmers. In Haveri district, only 29 per cent of marginal farmers, 28 per cent of small farmers and 31 per cent of medium farmers were aware of the MSP scheme.

151 139 E-tendering System in selected regulated markets of North Karnataka An Economic Appraisal: Increase in the quantity of arrivals and prices were observed in the post e-tendering period over pre e-tender period. There was increase in the market fee collection in the post e-tender period over pre e-tender period, which could be attributed to increase in the volume of transactions due to more number of farmer-sellers, traders, and increase in the price competitiveness as a result of e-tender system. With the involvement of NCDEX, the Government of Karnataka is seeking to implement Unified Marketing System in the selected regulated markets of Karnataka. Online trading and direct payment to farmers account are the major features of this system. However, this system is still in the initial stage. Gate entry system, assaying system and online payment system are still to be implemented in the selected markets. E-tendering in general was acceptable to a majority of farmers, commission agents and traders. Lack of infrastructure and skilled manpower to implement the scheme were the major problems faced by the traders. Economic Impact of Agricultural Debt Waiver and Debt Relief Scheme-2008: A Case Study of Dharwad District, Karnataka State: The focus of the study was to analyse the economic impact of agricultural debt waiver and debt relief scheme-2008 in Dharwad district. The purposive sampling technique was employed to select 100 sample respondents comprising of debt waived and debt relieved borrowers in the study area. The findings revealed that the magnitude of overdue was highest in the case of debt - relieved borrowers amounting to Rs crores ( Rs. 160,000 per borrower). Benefit extended for debt waived borrowers was 100 per cent and in the case of debt relieved borrowers, it was only 25 per cent of the total overdue. The scheme helped farmers with fresh finance from the banks to the extent of Rs crore, but it led to disappointment among the borrowers who paid promptly since they missed the opportunity of debt waiver / relief. All the bank branch managers interviewed opined that scheme had helped in recovering the bad debts. The study suggested that instead of Debt Waiver and Debt Relief Scheme, Government should think of providing incentives in terms of interest subvention for regular repayment and reduction of interest rates on agricultural loans which would inculcate the prompt repayment among the farming communities. As per bank officers suggestion, legislation for recovery through legal proceedings is required. Writing off debt should be stopped which is likely to motivate non-defaulters to become willful defaulters. Consumer Preference for Organic Products A Socio Economic Analysis: The market of organic products is growing as the number of people willing to eat organic food and pay premium price is increasing. The future of organic agriculture to a large extent, also depend on consumer demand and their motive for paying extra price for organically grown food. Thus, a consumer-oriented approach to understanding the market for organic products is important for pursuing better management of organic farming. In this context, a study was taken up with the objectives to study the socio economic characteristics of consumers of organic products, to analyse the factors influencing the purchase decisions, to study the consumer preferences for organic products, to analyse the perceptions about the effect of consumption. The study is purposively taken up in Belgavi, Hubli and Dharwad cities. A cross section of the organic consumer was surveyed for the preferences for organic products. Mostly graduates and relatively high income population preferred to buy organic foods. The source of information was TV and News Papers. The important factors that could be

152 140 ascertained were health concern and quality foods in both the areas under study. Mostly the organic foods were available at health food stores in both areas under consideration. In both Belgavi and Hubli mostly the samples revealed that organic foods were popular because they were free from pesticides. However the awareness of population on health safety was significant. The value for money was another important factor considered for their choice of organic food. Documentation of technologies developed by UAS, Dharwad during last five years and assessing their rate of transfer from lab to land: 29 varieties, 60 production, 21 protection and 7 other technologies were released by UAS, Dharwad during to (K ). Out of 117 technologies only 20 technologies were adopted by farmers. 28% in variety, 8% in Production and 33% in Protection with 17% over all technologies of UAS, Dharwad reached the farmers field. Few farmers adopted protection technologies in ground nut, cotton, pomegranate and grapes. About 31% technology related to oil seeds, 7% in horticultural crops, 0% in pulse crop were transferred to land % of farmers were not aware of any technology developed by UAS, Dharwad. Majority of the farmers were using the technologies suggested by supplier of seeds, pesticides, chemical and fertilizers, fellow farmers and technology adopted by their elders. Majority of farmers approached RSK, only to get subsidized items. Non availability or poor popularization, low yield, lack of knowledge and low educational level, low income level, cost involved in the technology are the main reason for low rate of transfer of technology from lab to land. Strategies to curb suicidal tendency of Farmers in selected districts of Karnataka: The database of different parameters on suicidal tendency of farmers was completed. The important factors causing the suicidal tendency have been identified. The index which will give an indication whether the farmer has a tendency to commit suicide has been formulated by considering many parameters. Documentary film on suicidal farmers has been developed. Validation of the index will be carried out before releasing the index PG Research Development of decision support system for cotton and sugarcane: The Decision Support System has been developed in the visual basic V.06. Statistical investigation was carried out on relationship between weather parameters and biotic stresses, biotic stresses and crop yield. Correlation and regression analysis were used as tools. In case of cotton crop, the maximum temperature and morning relative humidity have significant positive impact on the incidence of aphid. The morning relative humidity has negative impact on incidence of mealy bugs. There was a significant positive contribution of evening relative humidity to the population of leaf hopper in cotton. The morning relative humidity and evening relative humidity has significant positive impact on incidence of angular leaf spot and rust respectively. Maximum temperature has significant positive and minimum temperature has significant negative impact on growth of Cynodon dactylon. There was significant positive contribution of rainfall to the growth of Cyperus rotundus. The leaf hopper and angular leaf spot showed significant negative impact on yield of cotton. Similarly in case of sugarcane crop, the population of woolly aphid contributed negatively from all most all the weather parameters. The incidence of root grub was significantly contributed by the maximum temperature. There was significant positive contribution of rainfall on infestation of red rot. Maximum temperature and morning relative humidity have

153 141 significant positive contribution on incidence of rust. Parthenium hysterophorus and Alternanthera sessilis were significantly contributed by rainfall. Woolly aphid, ring spot and rust have significant negative impact on yield. Estimation of potato yield in relation to weathe parameters: To keep the potato production in profitable manner, estimation of potato yield is essential in relation to weather parameters. The study was carried out based on secondary data. The yearly crop yield data of potato was collected from District Statistical Office, Dharwad. Secondary data on the weather parameters were collected from Main Agricultural Research Station (MARS), UAS, Dharwad. The statistical tools namely correlation analysis, regression analysis and different non linear models were employed. For estimating kharif potato yield minimum temperature and minimum relative humidity were found significantly contributing to the yield. For estimating rabi potato yield maximum relative humidity and rainfall were found significantly contributing to the yield. Logistic and Cubic model were found to be best for estimating kharif potato yield whereas Quadratic and Cubic model were found to be best for estimating rabi potato yield. Trend analysis was carried out. Cubic model was selected to know the trend of both kharif and rabi potato yield. The average accumulated heat units for Kharifpotato production and rabi potato production were found to be and respectively. Estimation of birth weight of newborns based on fetal weight: The study was attempted to determine the birth weight of newborns belonging to farmer s family, to study the influence of different factors on birth weight and validation of selected formula for predicting the birth weight of newborns. The present stud y relies on primary data and secondary data elicited using purposive sampling in Ilkal Nursing Home, Dharwad district, which has got legal permission to conduct ultra Sonography. For this study 80 samples were selected purposively. The database collected for the study was treated with some of statistical tools like multiple linear regression, mean deviation measurements, correlation analysis, mean square error and also ultrasonographic methods for analysis of data. The results of the study revealed that estimated fetal weight was calculated by using six standard formulae. Tokyo University formula had highest estimated fetal weight and least estimated fetal weight was observed in Hadlock-2 formula. Multiple regression and step wise regression techniques revealed that weight of mother is most important factor which contributes per cent to the actual birth weight followed by gestational age, age of mother, BPD and height of mother. Validation of different models was done to select the best model by using different statistical tools. Multiple regressions was selected as the most accurate and best model which was showing least difference between estimated and observed weight. Other formulae which were nearer to actual birth weight are Hadlock-3 followed by Hadlock-1 formula. Estimation of yield in groundnut based on weather parameters: The experimental data for groundnut was collected based on the experiment conducted by All India Co-ordinated Research Project (AICRP) on groundnut and meteorological data were collected from meteorological observatory of Main Agricultural Research Station of Dharwad for the year 2012 and The growing degree days (GDD) showed that days to fifty per cent flowering were on par with each other in responses to temperature regimes.

154 142 Whereas, days to maturity showed significant results. The Correlation study revealed that the dry pod yield (kg/plot) was highly significant and positively correlated with kernel yield in case of all the genotypes. Among different non-linear statistical models the cubic model was found to be significant, followed by compound model and best suitable for days to maturity and days to fifty per cent flowering for most of the genotypes. In backward regression models Days to maturity and rainfall plays major role in estimating dry pod yield. Path analysis for dry pod yield in different genotypes revealed that kernel yield had high direct effect on yield. Whereas, dry fodder yield showed high positive correlation with yield, but path coefficient analysis revealed positive indirect effect on yield. This may be due to positive direct effect of kernel yield. Statistical study on weather parameters and their effect over crop shifting in Dharwad district of Karnataka: The statistical investigation of impact of climate change on Chilli, Maize, Groundnut, Sorghum, Cotton and Soybean in Dharwad district was conducted based on secondary data. The yield of these crops were obtained from Directorate of Economics and Statistics, Government of Karnataka, Bangalore and the Weather parameters data were from Assistant executive water gauge office sub-division-2 Dharwad. Different statistical techniques such as trend analysis correlation analysis, Kendall s W-coefficient, regression analysis were employed for drawing inference. The results of the study revealed that most of the months showed no trend for rainfall, temperature and relative humidity. There was positive significant correlation of rainfall, maximum temperature and area on production for all crops. There was positive significant correlation of previous year price on area for groundnut, sorghum and soybean crops. Coefficient of concordance was done to know the association of cropping system over the period for area as well as price. And it was observed that there is association of cropping system. The models were built in order to predict yield with the help of individual weather parameter. Best models were selected based on the value of MSE and R2. Different non linear models were used for predicting yield using each weather parameter, among those cubic, quadratic and compound models were found best fit. Backward elimination regression models have been employed to select the best model. Rainfall and maximum temperature plays major role in predicting the yield of selected crops. 3.5 New Ad-hoc projects sanctioned to the University of Agricultural Sciences, Dharwad during Sl.
