Maize, the most important stable crop in Kenya is affected by drought stress mostly at flowering stages causing delay in silk emergence. The Anthesis to Silking Interval (ASI) is highly correlated to grain yields under drought stress as shown by experiments conducted at CIMMYT, Mexico. This study aimed at combining both earliness and short ASI in one maize genotype. Early-maturing, open pollin ...

Applying dynamic computer simulation models in integrated soil fertility management (ISFM) systems can be useful for identifying those systems with efficient nutrient use and a sustainable resource base. We evaluated the performance of the Precision Nitrogen Management (PNM) model for simulating soil profile nitrate-nitrogen (NO3-N) distribution and maize (Zea mays L.) N uptake under an N-fert ...

Distribution of chemical pools of Zn was studied in soils collected from various land use systems viz. cereals, apple orchard, vegetables, saffron, and forests. Sequential extraction scheme was employed to estimate various chemical pools of Zn namely water soluble, exchangeable, carbonate, oxide, organic and residual. Total soil Zn calculated as a sum of pools, ranged from 51.72 to 101.04 mg k ...

Shoot and fruit borer (Leucinodes orbonalis Guenee) is an important pest responsible for deterioration of quality and quantity of eggplant fruits. Ecofriendly practices such as adoption of proper plant spacing and fertigation level can be used in the management of this pest. For this, investigations were carried out in eggplant (Solanum melongena L.) grafted onto Solanum torvum Swartz to evalu ...
