Sesame Equivalent Yield: A Case Study

Sesame Equivalent Yield
Green gram and groundnut yields were converted into sesame equivalent yield, on the basis of their prices for benefit of comparison of different cropping treatments [Table-4]. Sesame equivalent yield in different intercropping situations were appreciably higher than that of sole crops of sesame or green gram, but were lower than the sole crop of groundnut, in both the years [Table-4]. Groundnut producing much higher yield showed superiority to both sole and intercropping systems in this case.
Intercropping of sesame with groundnut varieties recorded higher total sesame equivalent yield than that with green gram (471 to 474 kg/ha sesame seed yield, 1123 to 1250 kg/ha pod yield, thus 1369 to 1474 kg/ha of total sesame

In case of sesame with green gram (cv. T-44) at 50 kg/ha nitrogen level, it was recorded 470 to 471 kg/ha sesame yield, 434-494 kg/ha green gram yield and thus produced 819 to 862 kg/ha sesame equivalent yield. The highest yield of green gram was obtained from cv.105 in association with sesame at 50 kg N/ha. [Table-4]
Two nitrogen doses of sesame showed differential effect on component crops, but no variation was noticed in terms of total biomass and yield advantage, so higher doses of nitrogen might not be essential for this intercropping system. Similar results on intercropping of oilseeds and legumes were also opined by Patra et al. (1994a). Sesame-groundnut intercropping system gave higher yield even in water and nitrogen limited condition (Ghanbari & Tavassoli, 2013)

    At 0:00, there were no discs floating; at 0:30 and 1:00, there were five discs floating; and from 1:30 to 2:30, there were eight discs floating. In a pH 2 solution, the rate of photosynthesis was the fourth fastest. At 0:00, there were no discs floating and from 0:30 to 2:30, only one disc was floating. In a pH 4 solution, no discs were floating in any of the time intervals. It was concluded that photosynthesis of spinach leaves was at its highest rate at in a pH solution between six and ten, with pH 6 causing the highest rate.…

    However, ANOVA declares that the various treatments T1 (MR) and T2 (PR) including T0 (PD) control were not significantly different (see Appendix B, page 60). This means that the two rhizobial source from makahiya. and lalaking aratilis were not able to induced the actual height difference in bell pepper. Although, the bell pepper inoculated with rhizobial culture from makahiya gave the highest mean height among the two treatments. Induction of plant height growth was not significantly different.…

    There similar increment of rice bran oil extracted using ethanol and methanol in both Soxhlet and soxtherm extraction method. Both of the methods show the extractability of oil of using ethanol and methanol higher than hexane. In 3,4 and 5 hours extraction of Soxhlet and soxtherm result in Figure 4.3, also indicated the 4 hours extraction time exhibit no significance different between solvent and rice bran varieties. The low extractability comparable to previous research done ranging between 18-20% (Roger et al., 1993) might due to the climate and location of the rice had been planted. As these rice types are comes from different location of planted, the factors of location and climate might influence the result of study.…

    Pollen viability was determined in a few ways. The use of Alexander Stain to stain the pollen grains on the stigma showed that there was some germination on the self-pollinated flowers and no germination on the outcross flowers. This was interesting data because these results should have been opposite, since outcross-pollination is usually favored. Increasing the sample size by pollinating more flowers and collecting more stigmas might increase the likelihood of this being observed. Viable pollen was also observed in vitro by using the Brewbaker-Kwack medium protocol.…

    Although organic foods do have less synthetic pesticide residue and more vitamins and minerals, the difference is minimal and the health benefits are negligible. Research also suggests organic crops could have more natural toxins that could be more harmful than conventional crops.

    Two cups of broccoli doesn’t even equal one ounce of chips. It only equals one hundred calories which is more than most eat in one sitting (Hellmich 1). When given this fact it is clear to see the vegetable is the more cost effective option. This is not the only case in which this can be observed. Hellmich gives even more examples of healthy food that are cheaper per portion include onion, carrots, pinto beans, potato, bananas, OJ, and lettuce.…
