BACKGROUND Lemierre's syndrome is a rare condition characterized by thrombophlebitis of internal jugular vein, septicemia and septic metastatic infection of different organs. It is preceded by an oropharyngeal infection by anaerobic organisms. Community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus is now emerging as a causative organism in(More)
Effects of local green manure (GM) and lime on soil productivity in a low-input agricultural system were evaluated by growing three successive crops of sweet corn (Zea mays) on an acid Oxisol (Typic acrorthox, Togitogiga series) in Western Samoa. The soil was amended with coral lime at 0, 5, and 10Mgha–1 and with cowpea GM at 0, 7.5, and 15Mgha–1.(More)
Effects of coralline lime, in combination with 3 kg Cu ha−1 plus 3 kg Zn ha−1, on yield and nutrient uptake by peanut (Arachis hypogea) were studied at three locations in Western Samoa. Coarse (0–10 mm) coralline lime material containing 31.1% Ca and 1.7% Mg was used as lime at 0, 555, 2222 and 5000 kg ha−1. In the Togitogiga soil, which had the lowest(More)
The objective of this study was to determine the effects of soil water and soil strength on root growth in situations where the individual effects of both of these factors were important. Three grain legumes were grown from pre-germinated seeds for five days on 50-mm compacted columns of two major soils of Sri Lanka. Four or five levels of bulk density (1.1(More)
