Genetic Variability Study Among Ten Cultivars of Cowpea (Vigna unguiculata L. Walp) Using Morpho-agronomic Traits and Nutritional Composition
Variability as expressed in the studied cultivars could be useful for understanding genetic diversity of selection of cultivars with novelty in vegetative growth, yield and nutrition composition in the process of breeding programme and crop production.
Assessment of genetic diversity in accessions of pearl millet (Pennisetum glaucum) and napier grass (Pennisetum purpureum) using microsatellite (ISSR) markers
The polymorphism obtained in this study showed that ISSR is an effective marker for assessment of genetic diversity and the connection between most accessions indicated that they have common progenitor.
Shelf life and proximate composition of tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L.) fruits as influenced by storage methods
Shelf life of all the varieties was enhanced by pot-in-pot refrigerator, and moisture was highest, followed by carbohydrate in all varieties irrespective of storage structure and preservative.
Biological Treatment of Textile Effluent Using Candida zeylanoides and Saccharomyces cerevisiae Isolated from Soil
The use of Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Candida zeylanoides in treatment of textile wastewater will help to limit the adverse environmental and health implications associated with disposal of untreated effluent into water bodies.
Characterization Studies and Yield Attributes of Some Varieties of Cowpea (Vigna unguiculata L.)
Investigations were carried out on sixteen improved varieties of cowpea (Vigna unguiculata L walp) obtained from International Institute for Tropical Agriculture, Ibadan. These varieties were grown…
Assessment of the effects of gamma irradiation on the growth and yield of Digitaria exilis [Haller]
80Gy or slightly low dosage form of gamma irradiation using cobalt (60) could be utilised to increase variability and yield in Digitaria exilis to further strengthen the existing conventional improvement methods.
Assessment of the Diversity of Leaf Epidermal Traits of Dipcadi Filamentosum Medik Among Different Co-Geographical Regions in Nigeria
The variables observed among the 4 eco-geographical populations of D. filamentosum showed that effects of environmental factors are partial on the leaf epidermal traits of the plant.
Genome size and ploidy variations in pearl millet (Pennisetum glaucum) and napier grass (Pennisetum purpureum) genotypes
The present study suggests that evolution and development of polyploidy was accompanied with loss in genomic content in Napier grass and it was discovered that pearl millet with less number of chromosome, had higher genome size than Napier Grass.
Effect of hormones on in vitro culture of Sesame Sesamum indicum (L.) embryo
Ex Sudan was found to be more suitable for tissue culture procedures as a result of its responses to the treatments administered, and stand as a candidate for improvement of the other local varieties.
Effects of nitrous acid on growth and yield of Digitaria exilis (Haller)
4hr of exposure of D, exilis to 0.1M Nitrous acid could induce useful variability for improvement of the crop in a breeding programme, and produced best agronomical traits and improved yield.
