Weeds are the most prominent of all rice biotic stresses across all the ecologies in terms of yield reduction and increased cost of production. Weed control is therefore one of the most important and suggestive practices for potential rice production. Based on the above, field trials were carried out during 2017/2018 dry season at the Teaching and Research Fadama farm of the Kebbi State University of Science and Technology located at Jega (Latitude 12o21ˈN; Longitude 4o36ˈE) and that of Usmanu… Expand

Growth Response of Selected Rice (Oryza sativa L.) Varieties to Integrated Weed Management in Sudan Savanna of Nigeria
It could be concluded that for increased rice growth, Faro 57 under the combination of solarization, orizo-plus and hoe-weeding IWM option should be adopted. Expand
Climate change impacts and adaptations for fine, coarse, and hybrid rice using CERES-Rice
CERES-Rice calibration and evaluation results were quite good to simulate impacts of climate change and to formulate adaptations during 2040–2069 (mid-century) to nullified deleterious effects of climatechange. Expand
Deep placement of nitrogen fertilizer improves yield, nitrogen use efficiency and economic returns of transplanted fine rice
DPNF improved yield, ANUE and economic returns; therefore, it is concluded that DPNF should be opted to improve productivity of transplanted fine rice. Expand
Toxicological Evaluation of Selected Gluten-Rich Diets on Rats (Rattus norvegicus)
The results obtained showed that the gluten diets did not induce any serious side effect in the treated rats and even enhanced the health of the rats, particularly the reproductive performance, and gluten-rich foods are therefore considered safe and healthy for gluten-tolerant individuals. Expand


Genetic Improvement of Rice in Nigeria for Enhanced Yeild and Grain Quality - A Review
Different breeding methods that can be used to develop new rice varieties, modify or improve already existing ones are highlighted and recommendations are given in the direction of future research for enhancement of rice in Nigeria. Expand
Effect of variety and water management on the growth and yield of Boro rice
The population of Bangladesh is still growing by two million every year and may increase by another 30 million over the next 20 years. Thus, Bangladesh will require about 57.26 million tons of riceExpand
In this study, water absorption characteristics of some rice varieties (Bisalayi, FARO 61, FARO 60, FARO 52 and FARO 44) from Nigeria were studied at 30, 45, 60 and 75 o C by determining the increaseExpand
