Effect of different concentrations of kinetin on seed germination in tomato – IJAAR

tomato,,By: Aqib Zeb


Fresh seeds of tomato cultivars Narc-2012 and Narc-2013 were subjected to osmopriming treatments with an objective to improve germination and seedling vigor by dormancy breakdown. For osmopriming seeds were soaked in aerated solution of 10, 50 and 100 ppm kinetin for 24 hours at 25°C. Continue reading


Priming impacts on seed quality of tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum) under salinity condition – IJAAR

Lycopersicon esculentum,By: Mohsen Poursoltan Hojagan


This study aimed to investigate the seed priming effects on the quality of tomato seeds under salinity and non-salinity conditions. The factorial design was carried out in the form of completely randomized design (CRD) with four replications. The treatments included priming (Control, tryptophan, proline and arginine with five mM concentration) and levels of salinity (0, 30, 60mM NaCl). Continue reading

Evaluation of selected tomato cultivars reaction to infestation with Meloidogyne javanica in greenhouse conditions – IJAAR

Meloidogyne javanicaBy: M.W. Mwangi


Root-knot nematodes are the most important phytoparasites that decrease tomato production in Kenya. It is important to test susceptibilities of tomato cultivars to root-knot nematodes (RKN) in order to mitigate against losses, by putting in place appropriate control measures. Continue reading

Assessing the role of public-private partnerships in the provision of agricultural extension services: ˴the case of greenhouse tomato farming in Samburu County, Kenya -IJAAR

tomatoesBy: Njeru Patrick Ndwiga


Agricultural extension services provide farmers with important information, such as patterns in crop prices, new seeds varieties, management practices and training in new technologies. Provision of such information enables farmers to optimize the utilization of the scarce resources at their disposal. In the past, a number of agricultural extension models have been employed with varying levels of success in developing countries. Continue reading

Nutrient partitioning in tomato grown on organic manure treated soil – IJAAR

Ripe fresh tomatoes growing on the vine.By: Md. Yunus Miah


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
