Growth and Yield of Okra with Rock-Phosphate – Amended Organic Fertilizer

Print PDF

Author: Eyitayo A. Makinde1, E. A. Makinde,


Phosphorous supply from organic manures for okra production can be insufficient for optimal fruit yield. The growth and yield of okra (Variety: NHAe 47-4) were assessed in field experiments with an organic fertilizer made from cowdung (CD), fortified with Ogun Rock Phosphate (ORP). The ORP was applied sole at 100 kg ha-1 and also with each of 2.5; 5.0; 7.5 and 10.0 t ha-1 cowdung. There was a standard check of NPK 20-10-10 applied 2 weeks after planting at 400 kg ha-1 and an unfertilized control., Average number of leaves per plant, stem diameter and plant height were

Previous research revealed that several single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of zyxin were significantly associated with coccidiosis-resistance parameters. In this research, the Jinghai yellow

Modeling manual material lifting risk evaluation: A fuzzy logic approach

Print PDF

Abstract: :

Manual lifting is common in some occupational groups with substantial rates of injuries. Risk and safety management are therefore become important issues in such workplaces. This study proposed a Fuzzy Logic Expert System (FLES) for manual material lifting risk evaluation. The objective is to develop a fuzzy rule based Expert System which traditional methods are unable to offer effectively. The FLES, implemented in MATLAB (version 7.8), used load (kg), posture (degree), and frequency of lift (lift/min) as inputs variables and risk

International Journal of Water Resources and Environmental Sciences 2(2): 41-47


The increase in residential and commercial development has led to a substantial reduction in the natural canopy cover and this has led to increase in the rate of soil erosion and reservoir sedimentation. This study determined the extent to which plant density and plant height will
