1. Effect of Planting Date and Variety of Cowpea [Vigna UNGUICULATA (L.)Walp.] On Green Pod Production

A study was carried out in 2012 in a Sudan savanna ecology in Ghana aimed at identifying the optimal planting dates and suitable cowpea varieties for green pod production. Six planting dates were considered starting from the onset of the rainy season (20th June, 30th June, 12th July, 25th July, 2nd August and 12th August), and four improved cowpea varieties released by Savanna Agricultural Research Institute (SARI) of the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) as Baawutawuta, Padi-tuya, Songotra and Zaayura. The experimental design used was a factorial Randomised Complete Block with five replications. Growth and yield parameters including plant height, stem diameter, number and weight of leaves….

2. Determinants of Use Intensity of Inorganic Fertilizer and Its Effect On Maize Yield Among Smallholder Maize Farmers in Northern Ghana

Studies have shown that poverty rates in Northern Ghana are two to three times more than the national average. Poverty, low income generation, and chronic food insecurity remains a critical challenge among the people in this region. Smallholder farmers in northern Ghana have limited access to the assets that would facilitate a shift from low productivity subsistence farming to modern commercial agriculture. The major constraints to their livelihoods include lack of infrastructure and insufficient access to agricultural technologies and inputs. The inadequate access of these technologies has brought about the low use of inorganic fertilizer by smallholder maize farmers in northern Ghana. The objective of the study….

3. Analysis of Rural Women’s Use of Technologies in Women in Agriculture Programme in Umuahia Agricultural Zone

Food production, majorly revolves around women who are most times not privileged to have some inputs at their disposal. The use of improved technologies in production no doubt increases food production but women are not empowered to make use of these technologies in Umuahia Agricultural Zone, Abia State. This study therefore, analysed the rural women‟s use of technologies in Women in Agriculture (WIA) programme in Umuahia Agricultural zone of Abia State. Data were collected with structured and validated questionnaire from 247 women involved in Women in Agriculture (WIA) programme in Umuahia Agricultural zone of Abia State. These data were analysed using descriptive and inferential statistics….

4. The Use of Ionizing Radiation from 60co Gamma Source in Controlling Moldiness in Dried Cocoa Beans

Mouldiness in stored cocoa beans in Ghana and the production of aflatoxin have been studied. Based on actual weight of discarded beans, mouldy beans have been estimated to constitute 0.13 % and 0.00002 % of marketable beans at the farm ers’ level and the buying agents’ depots respectively in the Tafo District. This is contrasted with an estimated value o f 0.16 % obtained in a questionnaire type study involving farmers. Estimated mouldy beans at the Tema port was 0.69 % per year (based on the cut test) representing a financial loss of $1,688,637.19 per year at S989/T should the mouldy beans be discarded….

5. Growth of Cocoa Seedlings as Affected by Different Growth Media and Different Polybag Sizes

A study was conducted to determine the effects of different growth media and different poly bag sizes on the growth of cocoa seedlings in the nursery. The experimental design was split plot design with three replicates. The treatments were soil (S), carbonated rice husk (CRH), cocoa pod husk (CPH), cocopeat (CP) , sawdust (SD), S+CRH, S+CPH, S+CP, S+SD, CRH+CPH, CRH+CP, CRH+SD, CPH+CP, CPH+SD, CP+SD and the three polytene bag sizes were 12.5 cm x 18.5 cm (small), 10.0 cm x 35.0 cm (medium) and 17.3 cm x 23.3 cm (large). For the media mixes, the combination by volume used was 1:1. Number of leaves, plant height…..

6. Assessing The Efficiency of Two Improved Lesser Known Kilns and Their Effect On the Quality and Shelf Life of Smoked Fish in Ghana

Fish and fisheries products serve as significant sources of food and incomes for numerous people, particularly those from developing countries (FAO, 2018). Fish is highly nutritious, containing approximately 70-84% water; 15-24% protein; 0.1-22% fat; 1-2%, minerals; 0.5% calcium; 0.25% phosphorus; and 0.1% vitamins A, D, B and C (Abraha, et al., 2018). Consumption of fish and fisheries products has been known to reduce the risks of cardiovascular diseases, type 2 diabetes, inflammatory diseases, certain cancers, dementia and psychological problems (Hosomi, Yoshida, & Fukunaga, 2015)…..

7. Profit Efficiency of Small-Scale Rice Farms in Patigi Local Government Area, Kwara State

This study examined the profit efficiency of small-scale rice farms in Patigi Local Government Area of Kwara State, Nigeria based on the data collected from 150 small scale rice farmers in the study area which was selected using a three-stage sampling method. The Cobb-Douglas Stochastic Frontier Profit Function, Descriptive statistics, Gross margin analysis were used to analyze the data obtained for profit efficiency, socio￾economic characteristics of the respondents and constraint faced by the rice farmers in the study area and; profitability of rice farming in the study area respectively….

8. Economic Analysis of Pig Production in Biase Local Government Area of Cross River State, Nigeria

Agriculture is a crucial sector that provides employment opportunities for majority of Nigerian, and is responsible for more than one-third of the total Gross Domestic Product (GDP), FAO (2012); Adetunji and Adeyemo, (2012) and Finlutell, 2013). The livestock sector is also crucial to the national economics development as it is the main supplier of the highly essential animal protein (Timidayo 2017, Ogbu, 2010). The livestock sector is also crucial to the national economics development as it is the main supplier of the highly essential animal protein (Timidayo 2017, Ogbu, 2010). The livestock sub-sector provides 53% of daily protein intake….

11. Impact Of Improved Poultry Production Technologies Among Smallholder Indigenous Chicken Farmers In Kakamega And Makueni– Kenya

Indigenous chicken (IC) farming contributes to the livelihoods of many smallholder farmers in Kenya. It constitutes 80% of the poultry population in Kenya. Kakamega and Makueni are Counties where most of smallholder farmers rear IC. However, IC production has been constrained by several bottlenecks including; unimproved genotype, diseases and increased mortalities resulting in low productivity. A strategy by scientists and stakeholders, production technologies such as; improved indigenous chicken (IIC) genotypes and fabricated chick brooders have been developed and disseminated to the farmers…..
