Effect of cattails (tyha latifolia) invasion on species richness and soil properties.

Cattails (Typha latifolia) are noxious and invading species which are rapidly spread across water bodies. This study aims at determining the distribution and ecological effects of cattail on invaded ecosystems in Kwara State. Survey was made across the wetlands in the sixteen Local Government Areas in Kwara State. Out of these, wetlands of eight Local Government were selected due to the prevalence of cattails in them. Each location with cattail distribution was divided into three subplots whi...

Performance of Cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) on Ferruginous Soil Amended with Poultry Manure and NPK 15:15:15 Fertilizer

AbstractLow fruit quality and yield in cucumber is linked directly to continuous cropping under poor soilfertility management practices in Nigeria. In 2014 and 2015 planting seasons, field trials wereconducted at the National Horticultural Research Institute (NIHORT), Ibadan to determineeffects of poultry manure and NPK 15:15:15 fertilizer on growth, nutrient uptake and yield ofcucumber on Ferruginous soil.
