Shoot organogenesis was successfully achieved in petiole explants excised from 6 to 8-week old in vitro plantlets of yam Dioscorea rotundata P. cv. Kponan fissa, Dioscorea cayenensis L. cv. Krengle IB14 and cv. Krengle IB35, and Dioscorea alata L. cv. Bete bete. Only the basipetal portion of the petiole acquired competence, and plants regenerated within 21(More)
An experiment was conducted to evaluate the feeding of four medicinal mushrooms via fungus myceliated grain (FMG) at three levels on production performance, blood parameters and natural coccidiosis oocyst excretion in floor reared broiler chickens. Three hundred day-old female broiler chickens were weighed and randomly assigned to nine different treatment(More)
Two methods were used to produce yam minitubers from two different yam cultivars (cv. Krengle and cv. Kponan) using in vitro culture techniques. Method 1: Yam microtubers were first initiated in vitro and then transplanted to soil to generate plants from which minitubers were produced. Yam plants were obtained either by directly planting the microtubers to(More)
Background: The lack of good production practices and probable post-fermentation contaminations contribute to bacterial pathogen load in ugba, a fermented food made from African oil been seeds (Pentaclethra macrophylla Benth). Some of these bacteria are not easily detected using standard culturing techniques. The study used molecular-based approaches(More)
