EFFECT OF DEFOLIATION AND NPK FERTILIZER ON YIELD OF MAIZE (Zea mays L)

ABSTRACT This experiment was conducted at experimental field of Faculty of Agriculture, University of Benin, Benin-City, during 2014 growing season. A 3×4 factorial experiment in randomized complete block design with 3 replications was used to study effect of defoliation and NPK fertilizer on yields of maize. Factors were three defoliation levels, No defoliation (D0), defoliation […]

IN- VITRO GAS FERMENTATION PATTERN OF MAIZE STRAW WITH CASSAVA PEEL BASED SUPPLEMENT

ABSTRACT This study was carried out to investigate the in vitro gas fermentation pattern using maize straw with cassava peels based supplement fed to WAD goats. The goats were fed in six different treatments, with (treatment 1: maize straw +10%cassava peels concentrate without oil drench, treatment 2:maize straw +25%cassava peels concentrate with oil, treatment 3:maize […]

THE EFFECT OF BIOMODIFICATION WITH Trichoderma harzianum ON THE CHEMICAL COMPOSITION AND IN VITRO GAS FERMENTATION CHARACTERISTICS OF MELON SEED HUSK WITH OR WITHOUT SUPPLEMENTATION WITH WHEAT BRAN

ABSTRACT This study was carried out to evaluate the effect of biomodification with the fungi Trichoderma harzianum on the chemical composition as well as the in vitro gas production characteristics of melon seed husk (MH) with or without supplementation with wheat bran (WB). Wheat bran supplemented melon seed husk (0%, 25%, 50%, 75%, 100%) were […]
