Effects of biological techniques in soil conservation and subsoil inorganic-N accumulation in the central highlands of Kenya
Soil erosion and nutrient leaching are some of the factors hindering realization of full crop production potential in the central highlands of Kenya. A participatory trial involving use of calliandra, leucaena, napier, ...
Effects of different forms of nitrogen on relative growth rate and growth components of tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum mill.)
Negative growth responses have commonly been associated with sole ammonium nutrition in most plant species. The results presented here suggest a lack of nitrate rather than sole ammonium nutrition as causal factor for ...
Effects of different nitrogen forms on growth, phenolics, flavonoids and antioxidant activity in amaranth species
(Society for Tropical Plant Research, 2017)
Higher plants, accumulate large number of polyphenolic compounds which are believed to act as defence compounds against different environmental constraints. Nitrogen (N) is a critical element for plant growth, absorbed ...
Differential Impact of Nitrogen Forms on Selected Phytochemicals and Oxalate Contents in Three Vegetable Amaranth Varieties in Kenya
(Valahia University Press, 2017)
Amaranthus are a great source of phytochemicals important for nutritive and remedial benefits. However they are also great accumulators of anti-nutrients such as oxalates. Nitrogen (N), a vital plant nutrient is a strong ...
