Differential Benefits Of Rock Phosphate (RP) By Tomato ( Lycopersicon esculentum check for this species in other resources Mill.) Plant As Affected By Nitrogen Forms And Soil Types
(Bioline International, 2010)
Phosphorus is one of the critical elements that limit plant production, particularly in humid and semi-humid soils. For realization of African Green Revolution, use of rock phosphate (RP) by resource-poor farmers may be ...
Safe vegetable production with wastewater in developing countries: demystifying the negative notions
The unplanned shift from rural to urban cities in developing countries have continually put burden on planners, policy makers and the residents. The productive use of wastewater has increased alongside increased rural-urban ...
Genotypic Responses of Cowpea (Vigna unguiculata) to Sub-Optimal Phosphorus Supply in Alfsols of Western Kenya: A Comparative Analysis of Legumes
Western parts of Kenya are characterized by acid soils with phosphorus [P] deficiency and aluminum [Al] phytotoxicity. Reports indicate a declining trend in yields of legumes such as cowpeas. Though legumes can fix N, ...
A Comparative Study of Plant Species Composition of Grasslands in Saiwa Swamp National Park and Kakamega Forest, Kenya
Kakamega forest is a tropical rain forest ecosystem while Saiwa Swamp National Park (SSNP) is a riverine ecosystem. A study was conducted to determine plant species diversity of the grasslands in both the ecosystems with ...
A Rapid Hydroponic Screening of Field and Horticultural and Crops for Aluminium Tolerance
Aluminium toxicity is a major crop production constraint, particularly in acid tropical soils. The toxicity is aggravated when pH falls below 5.5 since toxic monomeric Al species get solubilized. The screening of Al tolerance ...
