Ten Percent Farm Tree Cover

Dickson N. Mukunga
Small scale farmers in arid and semi arid areas are working hard to be able to get output on their farms in the changing climate patterns. These patterns are characterized by short irregular rains and long drought spells. In order to mitigate climate changes there is need to plant trees. Trees trap carbon from atmosphere, trimmed to provide mulch and decompose to become manure. Data were collected through face to fa

Influence of the Use of Capsaicin on the Storage of Rice Grain

Rasoazanakolona Voahanginirina
The storage of milled rice requires monitoring to achieve the goal promoted for its consumption: preserving the quality to feed effectively. Sometimes, however, contamination infiltrates under an atmosphere favoring the formation of weevils. A futile loss is created by the unexpected degradation. The effect of capsaicin on whitened rice Sitophilus o. weevils was

Efficacy and Cost-Benefit Analysis of Indigenous Technical Knowledge versus Recommended Integrated Pest and Disease Management Technologies on Common Beans in South Western Uganda

Peace Kankwatsa
The common bean is the second most important food and third economically important crop after banana and coffee in the South Western Agro-Ecological Zone of Uganda. Farmers’ returns to investment in bean production are consistently negative mainly due to losses resulting from collective effects of insect pests and diseases that cause damages at the various plant growth stages. This research study was carried out to 1) identify the

Submergence Tolerance in Irrigated and Rainfed Lowland Rice Varieties: Agro-Morphological Basis for Rice Genetic Improvement in Southern Benin

Magloire Oteyami, Espérance Codjia, Clement Agbangla, Leonard Ahoton, Carline Santos, David Montcho, Antoine Missihoun
Objective: The study was carried out, on the rice perimeter of Southern Benin, to evaluate the response of irrigated and lowland rice varieties to the complete and partial submergence using agro-morphological traits. Method: Thus, 15 rice varieties were submerged in the field during 60 days according to split plot experimental design with two factors and three replications. Agro-morphological parameters such as plant height, numbe

Muhammad Ahsan Khatana, Muhammad Muzammil Jahangir, Choudhary Muhammad Ayyub, Rashad Waseem Khan Qadri, Muhammad Azam, Khurram Ziaf, Muhammad Awais Ghani, Waseem Iqbal
Drought stress is one of the foremost abiotic stresses which causes damage to verbena plant production by affecting its growth and development. There is less information available regarding utilization of perennial verbena under drought conditions. To check the ability of perennial verbena plant under water deficit conditions a pot research trial was planned. Perennial verbena’s seeds were sown in plastic trays and applied water d
