Acharya N G Ranga Agricultural University, Guntur

The Andhra Pradesh Agricultural University (APAU) was established on 12th June 1964 at Hyderabad. The University was formally inaugurated on 20th March 1965 by Late Shri. Lal Bahadur Shastri, the then Hon`ble Prime Minister of India. Another significant milestone was the inauguration of the building programme of the university by Late Smt. Indira Gandhi,the then Hon`ble Prime Minister of India on 23rd June 1966. The University was renamed as Acharya N. G. Ranga Agricultural University on 7th November 1996 in honour and memory of an outstanding parliamentarian Acharya Nayukulu Gogineni Ranga, who rendered remarkable selfless service for the cause of farmers and is regarded as an outstanding educationist, kisan leader and freedom fighter. HISTORICAL MILESTONE Acharya N. G. Ranga Agricultural University (ANGRAU) was established under the name of Andhra Pradesh Agricultural University (APAU) on the 12th of June 1964 through the APAU Act 1963. Later, it was renamed as Acharya N. G. Ranga Agricultural University on the 7th of November, 1996 in honour and memory of the noted Parliamentarian and Kisan Leader, Acharya N. G. Ranga. At the verge of completion of Golden Jubilee Year of the ANGRAU, it has given birth to a new State Agricultural University namely Prof. Jayashankar Telangana State Agricultural University with the bifurcation of the state of Andhra Pradesh as per the Andhra Pradesh Reorganization Act 2014. The ANGRAU at LAM, Guntur is serving the students and the farmers of 13 districts of new State of Andhra Pradesh with renewed interest and dedication.

    IMPACT OF SEED PRIMING WITH CHEMICALS AND MICROBIAL INOCULANTS ON SEED QUALITY, FIELD PERFORMANCE AND YIELD OF CHICKPEA (Cicer arietinum L.)
    (ACHARYA N G RANGA AGRICULTURAL UNIVERSITY, 2024-05-16) JENNADA SHAREEF; Dr. V. SAIDA NAIK
    The present investigation entitled “Impact of seed priming with chemicals and microbial inoculants on seed quality, field performance and yield of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.)” was carried out at Agricultural Research Station, Jangamaheswarapuram, Gurazala (field studies) and Central Instrumentation Cell, Agricultural College, Bapatla (laboratory studies), Andhra Pradesh during 2021-22. The experimental material consists of two genotypes, five treatments and ten interactions to know the effect of various priming agents and microbial inoculants on the seed quality of chickpea were shown in a Factorial Completely Randomized Design (FCRD) with four replications (seed quality characters) and three replications (biochemical characters). To know the influence of the effective combination of priming agents and microbial inoculants on seed quality, field performance and yield of chickpea consisting of two genotypes, eleven treatments and twenty two interactions were shown in a Factorial Randomized Block Design (FRBD) with three replications (field studies). Effect of various priming agents on seed quality of chickpea was showed highly significant for most of the characteristics except germination, electrical conductivity and moisture content. Variance due to the biochemical character was also found significant for the total soluble sugars. The genotype NBeG-452 showed superior per se performance over NBeG-119 for concerning seed quality characters whereas for biochemical characters NBeG-119 showed the highest per se over NBeG-452. Out of five treatments, T5 showed the highest per se performance in all seed quality parameters (except EC) and biochemical characters (except MDA) and also exceeded over treatment grand mean of all characters as mentioned above. For genotype x treatment interactions, seed of desi which treated with 100 ppm of GA3 (G1T5) was found to be superior over other interactions for seed quality characters like shoot length, root length, seedling length, seedling vigour index and field xv emergence. For biochemical character total soluble sugars were recorded higher mean value with seed of NBeG-119 treated with 100 ppm of GA3 (G2T5). The impact of microbial inoculants on seed quality of chickpea was found to be highly significant for all the characters except germination and electrical conductivity. Variance due to priming with microbial inoculants was found non-significant for all the biochemical characters. Out of two genotypes (NBeG-452 and NBeG-119), NBeG-452 was found to be superior over NBeG-119 with respect to seed quality parameters whereas for biochemical characters NBeG-119 was superior over NBeG-452 for TSS, protein and MDA. Among five treatments, 20% of Rhizobium sps (T3) was found statistically superior for all seed quality parameters (except EC) and biochemical characters (amylase activity) over all the treatments and their grand mean value. Among interactions, seed of NBeG-452 treated with 20% of Rhizobium sps (G1T3) recorded numerically superior for all seed quality parameters except germination and EC and also higher over the grand mean value of all parameters whereas seed of NBeG-119 treated with 20% of PSB (G2T5) exhibited higher TSS over interactions for the biochemical character. Combination of priming agents and microbial inoculants on field performance and yield of chickpea were found highly significant for most of the characters except days to 50% flowering. Between two genotypes, NBeG-452 was found numerically superior over NBeG-119 for all the characters except days to 50% flowering, seed yield per plant and 100 seed weight. NBeG-119 was found more susceptible to wilt & root rot. Out of eleven treatments, 100 ppm GA3 + 20% of Rhizobium sps (T5) performed better for the traits PPPM @ 30 DAS and time of harvest, number of pods per plant, seed yield per plant, seed yield per plot and 100 seed weight. In the case of incidence of disease (%), combination of 100 ppm GA3 with 20% of Trichoderma viridae (T8) was recorded lowest mean incidence (wilt and root rot) over the other treatments. Out of twenty two interactions, seed of NBeG-452 treated with combination of 100 ppm GA3 with 20% of Rhizobium sps (G1T5) was found to be superior for field parameters like PPPM @ 30 DAS, seed yield per plant, number of pods per plant and seed yield per plot over the other interactions while seed of NBeG 119 treated with combination of 100 ppm GA3 with 20% of Rhizobium sps (G2T5) was recorded as highest per se performance for the trait of 100 seed weight and seed of NBeG-452 treated with combination of 100 ppm GA3 with 20% of Trichoderma viridae (G1T8) was recorded lowest mean incidence of root rot & wilt over the other interactions but statistically on par with seed of NBeG-452 treated with combination of KH2PO4 with Trichoderma viridae (G1T6) with respect to the incidence of root rot per cent. Variance due to treatment showed highly significant variation in all seed quality parameters. NBeG-452 was found to be superior over NBeG-119 in seed quality parameters while in the case of biochemical studies NBeG-119 was found superior over NBeG-452 for TSS, protein and MDA. Among eleven treatments, combination of ppm GA3 with Rhizobium sps showed a higher mean value in all seed quality parameters (except EC) and biochemical characters (except MDA) and also exceeded over treatments grand mean. Out of twenty two interactions, seed of NBeG-452 treated with combination of GA3 with Rhizobium sps (G1T5) was found to be superior for all characters except germination, which was recorded higher with seed of desi treated with combination of GA3 with Trichoderma viridae (G1T8). While in the case of biochemical studies seed of kabuli treated with combination of GA3 with Rhizobium sps (G2T5) recorded significantly higher soluble sugars over other interactions
