A field study was carried out for three seasons from November 1999 to February 2001 to investigate the influence of irrigation on growth, light and nitrogen use in maize under semiarid conditions in Machakos, Kenya. The ...
Effect of nitrogen application and plant age on edible leaf yield and quality of Black Nightshade (Solanum nigrum l.) plants.
Two experiments were carried out to investigate the effects of nitrogen application rates and plant age on the edible leaf yield and nutritive quality of black nightshade (Solanum nigrum L.) plants. The first experiment ...
Effects of drought, nitrogen, spacing and defoliation on vegetative growth and development, yield and quality of kale (brassica oleracea var. acephala
There is hardly any study reported in literature on the cultural practices for vegetable kale production. Greenhouse and field experiments were conducted to study the effects of drought, three water regimes (irrigating ...
Nitrogen mineralization from cattle manure, filtermud, factory ash and nitrogen uptake by maize (zea mays) in a glasshouse experiment."
To reduce over reliance on inorganic fertilizers due to high prices, there is a need to increase utilization of organic input sources such as filtermud, which is a by-product of white sugar manufacture. Fresh filtermud(FM) ...
