Insecticide Spray Regime And Plant Distance Effect On Cowpea (vigna Unguiculata L. Walp) Growth And Yield In Forest-transitionzone Of Ghana
Researchjournali's Journal Of AgricultureDec,2018 premium
Two field trials were carried out for two years at the crop research fields, College of Agriculture Education, Asante Mampong, University of Education, Winneba between May and July, 2016 and 2017 respectively to evaluate varietal response of cowpea [(i) Asontem and (ii) Hans Adua] to planting distance [ (i) 50 x 20 cm (ii) 60 x 20 cm] and insecticide spray regime [ (i) 2 sprays (ii) 3 sprays (iii) no spray (control)] in forest-transition zone of Ghana. The experimental design was a 2 x 2 x 3 factorial arranged in randomized complete block design with three replications.ViewViews: 8Google+

Growth And Yield Of Local Variety Of Rice As Affected By Planting Systems In Highland Ecosystem
Researchjournali's Journal Of AgricultureDec,2018
One of the recommended packages of technology to increase rice production is spacing or Planting Systems. This research was conducted from September to December 2015 in the Village Tikala, Tikala District of North Toraja Regency, aimed to determine the effect of Planting System on growth and yield of local variety of rice. Location research was on the altitude of 750 m above sea level with climate type B (Schmidt & Fergusson) and soil pH 6. The experiment was arranged in a randomized block design consisting of six treatments where each treatment was repeated three times so, there are 18 experimental plots, each plot with an area of 4m2 . The Planting Systems were tested is a Tile Planting SViewViews: 7Google+

Evaluation Of The Functional Properties Of Three Varieties Of Soybeans (glysine Max) Flour Grown In Zamfara State
Researchjournali's Journal Of AgricultureDec,2018
Three different varieties of soybeans (Glysine max) TGX-1440-2, TGX-1448-2, TGX-1776-2 were used to produce soy flour using roasting and steeping method. Results from proximate analysis shows no significance in their ash, and crude fibre content of the two varieties. The carbohydrate and the protein content differs with roasting samples having amount of protein (48%, 42% and 45%) for R. TGX-1440-2, R. TGX-1776-2, respectively with steeping method which has ((40%, 38%, and 39%), for S.TGX-1440, S. TGX-1448-2 and S . TGX-1776-2. Steeping method produce higher values of carbohydrate 34.50%, 35.00% and 35.60% for S.TGX 1440-2, S.TGX-1448-2 and S.TGX1776-2 while roasting method has 27.90%, 34.9% ViewViews: 4Google+

Impact Of Seed Hardness And Protease Activity On The Susceptibility Of Kenyan Hybrid Maize Seed Varieties To Sitophilus Zeamays
Researchjournali's Journal Of AgricultureDec,2018
This study aimed at exploring the impact of seed hardness and protease activity on the level of susceptibility to S.zeamays by Kenyan hybrid maize seed varieties. Ten varieties comprising of H.614, H.6213, H.6218, PH4, H.513, H.520, H.522, DH02, DH04 and KSTDV-01 were screened for their susceptibility levels. Percentage seed weight loss and Dobie's index of susceptibility were used in the evaluation of susceptibility. Sigma's non-specific protease activity method was applied in the determination of protease activity while a Sun Rheometer Compac-100 series was used to measure hardness across the ten hybrid maize seed varieties. The findings from the study show that harder and high protease acViewViews: 8Google+

Investment Decisions And Firm Market Value In Nigeria: A Panel Data Approach
Researchjournali's Journal Of FinanceDec,2018
The aim of this paper is to examine the impact of a firm’s investment decisions on its market value in Nigeria. The data consist of 10 publicly quoted companies selected from three different sectors; consumer goods, oil and gas and construction. The study covers a period of seven years from 2009 to 2015. Comparing the estimated pooled OLS model with the fixed effects model shows that although, the coefficient of non-current asset is positive and highly significant for both models, the fixed effects model however, outperforms the pooled OLS model. The implication of the result is that industry-company specific effects are significantly related with the firm’s market value. However, when tViewViews: 6Google+
