Investigating Available Processes of Acquiring Farming Land in the Free State Province with Introduction of Alternative Sustainable Models

Before being settled on farms, land redistribution must be supported with the necessary resources for long-term farming production, and its beneficiaries must be trained. Then, in order to ensure that agricultural production is…

Study on the Effect of Seedbed Types, Urea Fertilizer Rates and Intercropping of Sorghum with Legumes on Striga Incidence

Sorghum is important for its grain, which is used as food, animal feed, seeds, and in the brewing of local bear. Its stalks are used for shelter, animal feed, and as a source…

Yield Loss in Sugarcane (Saccharum spp.) Due to Smut Disease in Some Selected Genotypes under Sudan Conditions

This research was carried out at the Sugarcane Research Centre in Guneid (Latitude 15° N, Longitude 33° E) during the 2008/2009 cropping season. Sugarcane currently contributes significantly to Sudan’s national economy. The goal…

Studies on Different Substrates and Container Volumes in the Emergence and Ministumps Formation of Physalis peruviana L.

To obtain high-quality seedlings, good production techniques must be used. The container and the mode of propagation are important considerations. The goal of this study was to see how two substrates and container…

Lablab: A New Crop for Mid-Atlantic Region of the United States of America

Lablab [Lablab purpureus (L.) Sweet] is a tropical plant that is native to Asia and Africa. For generations, it has been a novelty garden plant in the United States. Several studies were conducted…

Effect of Light Colour Spectrum from Different Sources on Crop Growth and Phytochemical Properties: With Special Reference to Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L.) under Colour Shading

Different light wavelengths are associated with different functions in plant development. To detect these wavelengths, plants have a variety of photoreceptors. The changes in the light quality (wavelength) influences various physiological processes such…

Biological Activities and Valuable Bioactive Compounds from Portuguese Medicinal Plants

There are currently over 85,000 plant species that have been documented for medical use around the world. As a result, plant-derived natural products hold great promise for the discovery and development of new…

Economic Yield Optimization for Organic Greenhouse Cucumber Production

Increasing crop yield, rather than farming more land, will be critical to producing more. The future optimization of crop yield is an important aspect of food production that must be addressed immediately. Organic…

Effect of Nitrobenzene on Yield of Bell Pepper (Capsicum annuum L.) and Sweet Cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) under Green House Condition

Bell pepper (Capsicum annuum L.) and Sweet cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) are grown extensively throughout the world especially in temperate countries. Poor fruit-set as well as loss of reproductive structures due to moisture…

Evaluation of a New Approach to the 15Nitrogen Isotope Dilution Technique, for Estimating, in the Field, Crop Nitrogen Uptake from Organic Residues

Crop residue return is a nutrient conservation practice that benefits crop production while also improving soil quality. One of the difficulties that scientists encountered was determining a reliable technique for measuring N release…
