In conventional agriculture, heavy doses of chemical fertilizers and pesticides are often used to improve the yield of various horticultural crops. These chemical fertilizers and pesticides cause health problems among consumers. Due to the adverse effects of chemical fertilizers, there is interest in the use of organic fertilizers. It has long been recognized that the rate-limiting step for nitrogen assimilation, the reduction of NO 3 to NO 2 catalyzed by nitrate reductase (NR), is highly…

Organic Amendments: Direct Application and Residual Effects on Vegetative and Reproductive Growth of Hot Pepper

The high production potential of coffee and animals in the Gedeo zone that could produce huge amounts of coffee pulp and animal manure wastes has been polluting the environment. In this sense, this

Vermicompost leachate as a supplement to increase tomato fruit quality

Due to low yields, organic agriculture cannot satisfy the global demand for food, although it can provide products of higher nutraceutical quality. The objective of this research was to incorporate

The effect of vermicompost leachate on morphological, physiological and biochemical indices of Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni in a soilless culture system

PurposeA comparative study was carried out to assess the impact of vermicompost leachate (VCL) and inorganic fertilizer either alone or in combination on growth and biochemical parameters in Stevia

Effect of Urea Fertilizer and Poultry Manure on Nitrate Reductase Activity of Potato and some Tuber Composition

Introduction Nowadays, increasing environmental risks to human health have caused increasing attention to use chemical nitrogen sources efficiently or nitrogen supplying from organic amendments. In

Potential of vermicompost extract in enhancing the biomass and bioactive components along with mitigation of Meloidogyne incognita-induced stress in tomato

Increasing inorganic fertilizer and pesticide use has been linked to increased health risks for humans and cattle, as well as substantial water and soil contamination. In recent years,

The Effects of Foliar Vermicompost Applications on Yield and Some Yield Components in Triticale Varieties

Vermicompost fertilizers have started to attract attention in agriculture last years. Various liquid vermicompost fertilizers are produced and used in agriculture and some of them known as

Municipal Waste and Poultry Manure Compost Affect Biomass Production, Nitrate Reductase Activity and Heavy Metals in Tomato Plants

Abstract Organic wastes can be usefully recovered to produce organic amendments, for example, compost, to be used for crop production, thus reducing impacts through efficient waste management. The

Nitrate accumulation in leafy vegetables and its relationship with water

Abstract Present studies show that nitrate accumulation is the major factor influencing the water uptake by vegetables, but there is lack of knowledge on how the relationship between nitrate and



Effect of Californian Red Worm (Eisenia foetida) on the Nutrient Dynamics of a Mixture of Semicomposted Materials

The efficiency of composting processes with and without the addition of Californian red worms (Eisenia foetida ) was evaluated, using manure of dairy cows to generate organic fertilizer. Several

Nitrate: nutrient and signal for plant growth.

This review provides an update on recent molecular advances that have uncovered genes and mechanisms responsible for nitrate uptake, reduction, and regulation and explains how this regulatory network is responsive to both interna1 and external signals.


Research has demonstrated the considerable potential of vermicomposts — produced from a wide range of organic wastes, particularly cattle, pig, paper and food wastes — in suppressing plant diseases, such as Pythium, Rhizoctonia, Plectosporium and Verticillium.

Establishment and growth of two willow species in a riparian zone impacted by mine tailings.

Based on growth characteristics, the use of prerooted mountain willows would be recommended for successful revegetation of amended fluvial mine tailing deposits in riparian zones, however, care should be taken in restoration efforts where wildlife and domestic livestock are likely to browse on the willows.
