Genetic Variability Study Among Ten Cultivars of Cowpea (Vigna unguiculata L. Walp) Using Morpho-agronomic Traits and Nutritional Composition
TLDR
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. Expand
Biological Treatment of Textile Effluent Using Candida zeylanoides and Saccharomyces cerevisiae Isolated from Soil
TLDR
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. Expand
Assessment of the Diversity of Leaf Epidermal Traits of Dipcadi Filamentosum Medik Among Different Co-Geographical Regions in Nigeria
TLDR
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. Expand
Assessment of genetic diversity in accessions of pearl millet (Pennisetum glaucum) and napier grass (Pennisetum purpureum) using microsatellite (ISSR) markers
TLDR
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. Expand
Effects of nitrous acid on growth and yield of Digitaria exilis (Haller)
TLDR
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. Expand
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 grownExpand
Growth and Yield of Pearl Millet ( Pennisetum glaucum L.R. Br.) As Influenced by Downey Mildew and Smut Diseases in Kabuga Area of Kano State, Nigeria
TLDR
The variety ICMN IS 88224 was found to be the most susceptible to DM and smut disease while two improved varieties ( ICMn IS series) were finding to be tolerant and as such, ICMNIS 88212 is recommended for this location. Expand
Basic dye staining of the nucleolus in populations of Pancratium hirtum A. Chev. (Amaryllidaceae) in Nigeria
TLDR
The genus Pancratium, by the latest revision of the family AmaryUidaceae, is represented by P. hirtum A. Chev. Expand
Assessment of the effects of gamma irradiation on the growth and yield of Digitaria exilis [Haller]
TLDR
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. Expand
Genome size and ploidy variations in pearl millet (Pennisetum glaucum) and napier grass (Pennisetum purpureum) genotypes
TLDR
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. Expand
