Cereal maize continues to be one of the most important crops in the world both for human and livestock use. Bulk harvesting, transportation, handling and processing of cereal maize is therefore important if the increasing ...
Phosphate sorption isotherms of selected soils of Kenya and maize response to phosphate fertilizer in the greenhouse
Phosphate sorption characteristics of eight selected soils of Kenya were determiner order to establish the influence of previous manure and phosphate (P) fertilizer applications. The soils were two ando-humic Nitisols, ...
A comparative analysis of costs and benefits of Jatropha, maize and orange production in Kenya: case of contracted farmers in Shimba Hills
Energy demand and supply imbalances are a major challenge to development in Sub Saharan African countries. Reliance on petroleum as well as biomass energy sources is both uneconomical and unsustainable. These call for ...
Studies on the efficiency of two breeding methods applied to improve yield and quality in two maize populations carrying Brachytic-2, Opaque-2 and Sugary-2 genes
A study was conducted on normal KCR and KCE and their modified mutant populations carrying brachytic-2, opaque-2 and sugary-2 genes. The objective was to study the effect of three mutant genes on yield and protein ...
