Application of Vibration Technique for the Control of Physical Properties of Yam Sprouts (Dioscorea spp.) during Storage in Funaab, Nigeria Environment

Early sprouting of yam tuber is a typical problem during storage resulting into weight losses, deterioration, shrinkage and reduction in quality. This work therefore applied vibration technique for the control of physical properties of yam sprouts (Dioscorea spp.) during storage in FUNAAB, Nigeria Environment. The physical properties (length, number, and weight of yam sprout, number of leaves, weight of roots) of the yam sprouts were determined for one hundred and for...

Effects of Rhizobium Inoculation and Blended Fertilizer Rate on Yield and Yield Components of Faba Bean (Vicia faba L.) in Dangila District, Northwestern Ethiopia

Faba bean (Vicia faba L.) is economically an important crop in Ethiopia. The productivity of Faba beanin Ethiopia has been declined due to poor management practices of inappropriate fertilizer rate and Bio fertilizerrates usage. Factorial combination of five rates of Blended fertilizer (0, 60, 121, 180 and 240 kgha-1 NPSZnB) andthree rates of Bio fertilizer (0,500 and 750 gha-1) treatments were laid out in RCBD with three replications. Days to50% flowering, days to 90% physiological maturity,...
