Dehulled samples of two cowpea (Vigna unguiculata) and two scarlet runner bean (Phaseolus coccineus) varieties were studied for nutritional evaluation with respect to proximate, mineral and amino acid composition. The samples contained crude protein in the range of 75.3– 526.1 g kg–1 DM with cream coat scarlet runner beans having the highest and cream coat moderate cowpea the lowest value. The ...

Abstract :

New strategies for Prunus improvement, including germplasm and molecular marker development and improved propagation techniques, are described. In germplasm improvement, the introduction of genes from related Prunus species conferring several traits including self-compatibility, growth habit, drought resistance, and kernel quality are being pursued. Twin seeds (two embryos within the same seed ...

Abstract :

Improved germplasm of various cereals (maize, sorghum, millet, etc.) have been introduced to farmers in the savannas of northern Nigeria. Farmers’ adoption rate for improved maize (49%) was the highest. The technological reasons for the high adoption rate for improved maize have been documented. However, only very little is known about the socioeconomic factors. This paper investigates these u ...

Abstract :

Aframomum danielli antioxidant extract showed reduction in rancidity, fungal count but better sensory attributes in roasted peanut (Arachis hypogea). Roasted peanut samples treated were with different concentrations (100, 200, 300 and 400 ppm) of A.danielli antioxidant extract. Samples were packed into high density polyethylene (100 ìm) and stored at 30°C. Peroxide and free fatty acid values o ...

Abstract :

The booming vehicular population reached over 26.5 million today has completely transformed the socio-economic scenario in urban India. Vehicles, particularly two wheelers with two stroke engines, burn a mixture of petrol and oil, gives out a cloud of blue toxic smoke. The automobile emissions are the significant sources of gaseous pollutants and ultra fine particles in the atmosphere. In Indi ...

Abstract :

In Nigeria, most wastes (solid and liquid) are indiscriminately disposed off with partial treatment or untreated. While some wastes are dumped directly into the rivers, others are left on the earth surface and may later be moved through runoffs into the rivers and pollute them. This unwholesome and non-environment friendly practice necessitated this study which investigated the impact of urban ...

Abstract :

To preserve apple fruit quality, diphenylamine (DPA; scald inhibitor) and thiabendazole (TBZ; postharvest fungicide) were applied together as postharvest treatment. Due to the development of resistance to TBZ, the incidence of blue mold (Penicillium expansum) has increased in apple storages in recent years. To manage the fungicide resistance, two reduced-risk fungicides, cyprodinil or fludioxo ...

Abstract :

Forty one-day-old male and female ducklings (Cairina moschata L.) were fed on isocaloric and isonitrogenous diets formulated to contain 2 and 4% safflower oil (SO2% and SO4%) in the starter (1 to 15 days), grower (16 to 45 days) and finisher (46 to 60 days) periods. The ducklings were placed in two separate pens with an outdoor watering area and were fed ad libitum. Body weights, feed intakes ...

Abstract :

Ten strawberry cultivars and one breeding clone were evaluated for their salt tolerance under in vitro culture conditions on the basis of S1 seed germination. Salinity stress was simulated by the mixture of four salts (75 mM NaCl, 50 mM Na2SO4, 10 mM CaCl2, 5 mM MgCl2) to balance different types of ions. Germination of seeds was observed for 10 weeks. Coefficients describing reduction of seed ...

Abstract :

In arid and semi-arid regions, salinity is a common problem, which results in reduced plant growth and thus productivity. It is estimated that about 20-27% of irrigated area of 10% of the world’s cropland is affected by salinity. It affects photosynthesis, biomass accumulation and plant hormone concentration. Under salinity stress conditions plants activate antioxidative enzymes as a part of p ...
