Evaluation Of Four Eggplant (solanum Spp ) Varieties For Seasonal Dynamics And Generation Of High Tolerance Cultivars Through Interspecific Hybridization
Researchjournali's Journal Of AgricultureJun,2019
Adaptation of solanum cultivars to seasonal dynamics requires the development of new genotypes through interspecific hybridization. Four solanum species (S. melongena, S. macrocarpon, S. gilo and S. aethiopicum.) were characterized for seasonal dynamics in Nsukka agro-ecological zone of Nigeria for potentials for an-all-year-round cultivation. The F1and F2 hybrids generated through interspecific crosses for improvement of the cultivated varieties were also evaluated for yield. The study was conducted between October-February (dry season) and July-September (rainy season) of 2013 to 2015 at Teaching and Research Farm of the Department of Crop Science, University of Nigeria, Nsukka.ViewViews: 9Google+

Physico-chemical Properties Of Soils In South-western Region Of Ghana And Nutrient Management Strategies For Sustainable Cocoa Production
Researchjournali's Journal Of AgricultureJun,2019
Majority of Ghana's cocoa production occurs in the Western region. Information on soil nutrient levels in the area and possible specific nutrient management strategies for sustainable and competitive cocoa production is not available. Since the productivity of cocoa is dependent on the soil nutrient levels, a study was carried out to assess soil nutrients status of cocoa farms in the Jomoro District in the South-Western Region of Ghana. Soil samples were collected on cocoa farms at two distinct depths; 0-15 cm and 15-30 cm depth and analyzed for soil fertility properties. ViewViews: 4Google+

Effect Of Poultry Manure And Cow Dung Manure On Tobacco Growth And Root Knot Nematode (m. Incognita C.) Attacking Tobacco In Migori County, Kenya
Researchjournali's Journal Of AgricultureJun,2019
A glasshouse experiment was carried out for 12 weeks to determine the effect of poultry and cow dung manure on tobacco growth and root knot nematode (M. incognita C.) attacking tobacco in Migori County Kenya. Three hundred grams of manure was applied per pot containing 700g of root knot nematode infested soil. There were four treatments: mixture (poultry manure + cow dung manure); poultry manure; cow dung and heat sterilized soil (control). The experiment was set out on a Completely Randomized Design with four treatments and three replicates in the glasshouse.ViewViews: 10Google+

Screening Of Four Rice Cultivars (oryza Sativa L.) For Resilience To Drought Stress And Low Inorganic Fertilizer
Researchjournali's Journal Of EcologyJun,2019
A complete randomized block design screen house potted experiment was conducted at Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University, Bauchi. The aim was to determine the tolerance of four rice cultivars (FARO 44, FARO 52, Srilanka and Nerica-1) to drought stress and low NPK. The rice cultivars were subjected to drought treatments (alternative wetting and drying) with 100kg NPK/ha considered half dose of recommended NPK (200kg/h) dose in the study area. Control experiments with full irrigation and full NPK dose (200kg/ha) were employed. Growth and yield of the rice cultivars were determined.ViewViews: 62Google+

Constraints To Rural Households’ Forest Resources Exploitation And Utilization Activities In Benue State, Nigeria
Researchjournali's Journal Of EcologyJun,2019
The study was carried out to assess the constraints to households' forest resources exploitation and utilization activities in Benue State, Nigeria. A well structured interview schedule was used to purposively elicit information from 300 eligible respondents in the study area. The study revealed that: poor credit incentives (86.7%), poor households' financial resources (83.3%), poor transportation means (80.0%), and crude nature of forest resources exploitation equipment (78.3%), and poor road networks (77.0%) were identified as the major constraints to households constraints to forest resources exploitation and utilization activities in the study area.ViewViews: 8Google+

Intensity Of Exploitation And Utilization Of Cultural And Non-tangible Forest Resources On The Livelihood Of Rural Households In Benue State, Nigeria
Researchjournali's Journal Of EcologyJun,2019
The study was carried out to assess the intensity of cultural and non-tangible forest resources exploited and utilized by the rural households in Benue State, Nigeria. A well structured interview schedule was purposively used to elicit information from 300 eligible respondents in the study area. The study revealed that animal horns, tails (60.3%) and palm wine 60.0% were identified to be most exploited by the ruler households and very highly intense-utilized (61.0%)( for animal tails and horns used by traditional title holders) and very highly intensively utilized(53.0%) (for cola nut for sacrifice and prayer) the study concluded that the cultural and non-tangible forest resourcesViewViews: 3Google+

Identification Of Various Forms Of Forest Flora Food Resources Exploited And Utilized By The Rural Households In Benue State, Nigeria
Researchjournali's Journal Of ForestryJun,2019
The study identified various forms of forest flora food resources exploited and utilized by rural households in Benue State, Nigeria. Purposive sampling technique was used to collect data from 300 eligible respondents through the use of 3-stage sampling method. It was evident from the result of the study that forest flora foods resources like vegetables and mushroom exploited and utilized in a boiled locally processed forms by the respondents (70.0%) and (60.0%) respectively. Fruits were utilized in a raw non-processed form (80.0%) while nuts (50.0%) were utilized by the respondents. ViewViews: 3Google+

Size, Planting Depth, Orientation And Germination Of Cola Lepidota K. Schum Seed
Researchjournali's Journal Of ForestryJun,2019
A study was carried out to assess the size attributes of Cola lepidota seeds and to determine the effect of planting depth and orientation of the germination of the seed. Seeds were collected fresh from a single population of ten trees, the dimensions measured with the aid of a veneer caliper and confidence interval determined at 0.05 probability level and the germination study carried out at the swamp forest research station, Onne River state. The results show that C. lepidota mean seed length was 5.02 cm 0.25 cm and mean width was 4.82 cm 0.37 cm: standard deviation from the mean was lower for length (0.80cm) but however higher for width (1.14 cm).ViewViews: 12Google+
