Seeds are one of the main components in agricultural production systems. Seeds are demanded superior and high quality in order to produce high production. The use of low quality seeds and infectious diseases is one of the causes of low yield productivity. Seed treatment using biological agents or biological extract (biofungiside seed treatment) is an alternative as a substitute for synthetic chemicals in seed treatment. Continue reading

This experiment was conducted to identify methods to get rapid and uniform germination and packaging material for storing Kithul seeds. The study was conducted at the University seed testing laboratory, Dodangolla, Kundasale. Pericarp removed seeds were subjected to nine treatments: removal of portion of endosperm (t2), rubbing of seed coat using a sand paper (t3), hot water treatment 80oC for 5 seconds (t4), for 30 seconds (t5), oven heating at 60oC for 10 seconds (t6), for 2 minutes (t7), for 5 minutes (t8), concentrated sulfuric acid for 10 seconds (t9), 0.5M sulfuric acid for 10 seconds (t10) and untreated seeds (t1).

An experiment was conducted at Sokoine University of Agriculture to assess the effect of organic and inorganic nitrogen fertilizers on yield and yield component of sunflower in Morogoro. The treatments included the control; 2 t farmyard manure (FYM) ha-1 applied at planting (AAP); 5 t FYM ha-1 AAP; 10 t FYM ha-1 AAP; 20kg N ha-1 applied as UREA at 30 days after planting (DAP); 40kg N ha-1 applied as UREA at 30 DAP; 60kg N ha-1 applied as UREA at 30 DAP; 2 t FYM ha-1 AAP + 20kg N ha-1 applied as UREA at 30 DAP; 5 t FYM ha-1 AAP + 40kg N ha-1 applied as UREA at 30 DAP and 10 t FYM ha-1 AAP + 60kg N ha-1 applied as UREA at 30 DAP.

Field studies focused on nutrient partitioning are necessary for the better crop growth and efficient use of manures. This work presents a comparative study of the effects of cow dung and urea as different N sources on plant growth, shoot-root dry weight and the concentrations of some nutritionally important elements in root, stem, leaf and fruit of tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum L., var. Raton). Continue reading

Characterization and identification of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) rhizospheric bacteria by using 16s rRNA gene sequencing | JBES

Bacterial strains were isolated from wheat rhizospheric soil with the aim to explore potential strains for the biofertilizer technology suitable to the local climate and conditions. All the isolates were characterized for their plant growth promoting (PGP) activities such as IAA production, P-solublization, nifH gene presence, catalase and oxidase production. The promising and potential strains based on their PGP activities were tested in two experiments of wheat. Continue reading
