Bacterial load, composition and succession in the African catfish, Clarias gariepinus (Burchell, 1822) held atambient temperatures.
Oladosu-Ajayi, R.N et al. 
Microorganisms, especially bacteria are the major causes of spoilage in fresh fish. In the coastal areas ofdeveloping tropical countries where ambient temperatures are usually high and access to modern preservation andprocessing technologies is low, fish is often left under ambient conditions for long periods after capture, resulting inquality deterioration and spoilage with attendant increase ...

Development and Evaluation of the Efficacy of aLocal Probiotic in Comparison with a CommercialProbiotic in the African Catfish, Clarias gariepinus
George, Francisca et al. [2016-05]
Probiotics are mono or mixed cultures of liveorganisms which improve the host’s health status and indigenousflora properties. The use of probiotics in enhancing growth andas replacement for synthetic growth promoters in animal healthmanagement and nutrition has been scientifically proven. Thisstudy was carried out to evaluate the intestinal flora of theAfrican catfish, Clarias gariepinus for p ...

Effects of poultry manure and carbofuran soil amendments on soil nematode population and yield of pineapple
Daramola, Fisayo et al. [2013-04]
Two field experiments were conducted at the National Horticultural Research Institute, Ibadan and the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta to assess the efficacy of poultry manure and carbofuran in suppressing nematode populations and promoting pineapple yield. Three rates of poultry manure (0, 20 and 25 tonnes per hectare) and carbofuran (0, 3.0 kg a.i/ha and 3.4 kg a.i/ha) were applie ...

Improving the Reproductive Efficiency of the Goat: VaginalCytology and Vulvar Biometry as Predictors of SynchronizedEstrus/Breeding Time in West African Dwarf Goat
OLUGBUYIRO, J.A.O 
The characteristics of exfoliated vaginal cells and vulvar biometry following estrus synchronization via two injectionsof 5mg Lutalyse® administered 7 days apart were investigated with the aim of their possible use to predict estrus in six adult WAD does.Four adult WAD bucks recently passed as satisfactory potential breeders were also involved in the study. The animals were maintainedon 12% cr ...

CH4 emission model from the waste of Sus Domesticus and Gallus Domesticus in Nigerian local farms: environmental implications and prospects
Okeniyi, Joshua Olusegun et al. [2013-03-20]
The potential of CH4(methane) greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions based on a model of prevailing behavioural pattern of livestock waste management in Nigerian local farms was investigated in this paper. Livestock waste, from Sus domesticus, pig, and Gallus domesticus, poultry, were employed as substrates in the study which uses water from a fish rearing farm as the matrix medium to simulate wastewa ...

Studies on the Occurrence and Distribution of Plant-ParasiticNematodes in Some Pineapple-Producing States in Nigeria
Daramola, Fisayo et al. 
Nematode pests of pineapple have not been widely studied in Nigeria compared to othercountries. This study investigated the geographical distribution of nematodes associated withpineapple in three pineapple-producing states in Nigeria. A total of 78 farms were sampledfrom Oyo, Ogun and Osun States using the Agricultural Development Project in each state as apilot to locate representative farml ...

Idu, M. et al. 
The effects of some soil media viz., sand, clay, loam + sawdust (in a 1:1 ratio), and "Garden" soilon the seed germination of 9 cultivars of the HeDanthus annuus L. was investigated in a laboratorystudy. The results obtained showed that higher germination percentages of above 60% in most of thecultivars were observed in the sandy and loam + sawdust media. A consequent performance was alsorecor ...

Effect of oven - heat and boiling on the germinationand seedling development of Dichrostachys cinerea (L)Wight and Arn (Fabaceae)
Idu, M. et al. 
Dichrostachys cinerea (L.) Wight and Arn. seeds were heated to various temperature ranges in the oven andimmersed in boiling water to improve germination and determine the effect of the different pre-treatments on germinationand vigour growth of the resultant seedlings. Immersing seeds in boiling water (100 °C) for 10 s recorded the highestgermination percentage and energy (94 %; 85 %). Treatm ...
