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

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

Abstract:

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

Abstract

This study was conducted to compare the proximate composition and some antinutritional factors of treated and untreated Jatropha Curcas Kernel Cake(JKC).Standard procedures were employed to analyse the samples of dried seeds of Jatropha curcas purchased from open market. Results showed that after solid state fermentation with Absidia spinosa, the treated JKC contained 52.50% crude protein, Mucor rouxii treated JKC contained 52.10% crude protein. Treatment of JKC with the mixed culture of Absidia spinosa and Mucor rouxiiyielded 53.20% crude protein. Tannin content of the raw, toasted, Absidia spinosa treated, Mucor rouxii treated and those treated with the mixed culture of Absidia spinosa and Mucor rouxii were 4.80g, 3.81g, 3.53g, 3.40g and 3.34g respectively. Saponin and phytate contents also decreased when treated with various methods employed in this study. This preliminary study has shown that the methods of detoxification employed in this study have potentials to improve the nutritive value of JKC and also to reduce appreciably some of the Antinutritional factors present in the raw, unprocessed cake.

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

Assessment of the knowledge and effects of foot and mouth disease amongst cattle farmers in Ogun state, Nigeria

Print PDF

Authors:AO Talabi, OS Akinleye, OO Adebowale, OJ Awoyomi, GA Adeleke, TP Olusanya

African Journal of Livestock Extension Vol 12 (2013)

Abstract

Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD) is a disease of economic importance that is widely distributed in sub-Saharan Africa  and contributes significantly to cattle morbidity and mortality. A major factor useful in the control of this disease is  the ability of cattle farmers tosuspect FMD cases. This paper assessed the knowledge and effects of FMD amongst  cattle farmers in Ogun State,

International Journal of TROPICAL DISEASE & Health, ISSN: 2278 – 1005,Vol.: 3, Issue.: 4 (October-December)

Abstract

Objective: To investigate the various body ailments both communicable and non communicable diseases in conjunction with nutritional status of elderly in Ondo state, Nigeria. 
Methods: This was a random sampling of 400 elderly individuals (>60 years) living in Ondo State, Nigeria. By means of Open ended and structured questionnaire, data were collected on health, diet and Sociodemographic characteristics. There was anthropometric measurement to assess nutritional status. 
Results: Most of the elderly aged 60-69 years were married and have no formal education. Most of them were from monogamy and polygamy family structure. The body ailment reported consist of body pain (28%) respiratory related complications (14%) eye ailments (11%), hypertension (8%) diabetes (3%) and musculoskeletal problems (24%) such as rheumatism, cramps and arthritis. The prevalence of self reported hypertension was 26% less in male respondents than in female respondents. The dietary pattern revealed that elderly ate from major food groups with animal protein foods (74% ate daily) but low dairy products (7% ate daily). The food habit related significantly with body ailments such as skipping meals ((c=19.2; P<0.05) and eating three times a day ((c=8.4; P<0.05). 
The body Mass index classification showed more than half were in normal nutritional status (58%), but 20% underweight, 15% overweight and 7% were obese. The body ailments associated significantly with nutritional status (c=55.1; P<0.05).

Keywords :

Elderly common body ailments included hypertension; diabetes body pains and musculoskeletal problems like arthritis; rheumatism and cramps; more than a third are malnourished; and half are in normal nutritional status; dietary pattern relates significantly on health condition and nutritional status.

Reducing Low Back Pain in Construction Works; A Fuzzy Logic Approach

Print PDF

Author: Oluwole H. ADEYEMI, Samuel B. ADEJUYIGBE, Salami O. ISMAILA & Adebayo. F. ADEKOYA

Abstract:

In this study, a fuzzy linguistic model was developed to reduce the risk of Low back Pain (LBP) in construction works. The primary objective was to develop a computer-based model for risk assessment capable of generating results which are comparable more efficient than those obtained manually by human experts’ calculations. The expert system used fuzzy set theory to make decisions about the level of risk
