Use Of Heat Units To Predict The Optimum Transplanting Stage Of Baby Corn (zea Mays L.) Seedlings Under Field Conditions In Meru County - Kenya
Researchjournali's Journal Of AgricultureApr,2019
Baby corn (Zea mays L.) is a type of maize belonging to the Poaceae family of plants. It is grown as a vegetable in a wide range of Agro-ecological zones in Kenya. The plant is mainly grown for its immature unfertilized ears harvested within 2 to 3 days after silk emergence. However, due to continued demand for water, rainfall unreliability and the need for accelerated maturity, transplanting has to be adopted as an intervention of choice with good outcomes. The optimum transplanting stage is influenced mainly by the altitude (area temperature) of the locality due to difference in plants growth rate hence a universal transplanting stage parameter of heat units was usedViewViews: 12Google+

Researchjournali's Journal Of AgricultureApr,2019
Cnidoscolus aconitifolius (Mill.) I. M. Johnston is an underutilized plant with immense medicinal and other values. Unfortunately, little is known about the fungal organisms associated with this plant. This study was carried out to identify the fungal species associated with Cnidoscolus aconitifolius. Basic molecular techniques for identifying a fungus based on Polymerase Chain Reaction and sequencing of the Internal Transcribed Spacer (ITS) region of the fungal rRNA operon has proven to be a more reliable method of identifying fungal species. In this study, Cnidoscolus aconitifolius leaves and stem showing disease symptoms were obtained from Choba, Rivers State.ViewViews: 12Google+
