Comparative Qualitative Phytochemical Analysis of Oil, Juice and Dry Forms of Garlic (Allium sativum) and Different Varieties of Onions (Allium cepa) Consumed in Makurdi Metropolis

The qualitative phytochemical analysis of oil, juice and dry forms of garlic and three species of onions (red, brown and white onions) was investigated. Samples of fresh and dried garlic, red, brown and white onions were prepared and analyzed. All the samples were analyzed for the presence of phytochemicals which include saponins, flavonoids, phenols, tannins, triterpenoids, cardiac glycosides, steroids and alkaloids....

Impact of Silicon on osmotic adjustment and solutes allocation in alkalinized Sorghum (Sorghum Bicolor (L.) Moench) flag leaf during grain filling

The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of Si supply on osmotic adjustment and solutes allocation of two sorghum cultivars either exposed or not exposed to alkalinity stress. The present study was carried out in a greenhouse at the Faculty of Science, Mansoura University, Egypt, through the two successive seasons (2016/2017) and (2017/2018). The experiment was conducted in pots to evaluate the beneficial...

Genotypic response rice (Oryza sativa L.) seedlings to salinity

Salinity is one of the most widespread soil problem in rice growing countries and is considered as a serious constraint to increase rice production worldwide. The experiment was aimed at assessing the response of 30 rice genotypes to NaCl stress at four salinity levels Control, 4dS/m, 6dS/m and 12dS/m at early seedling stage. The genotypic responses were compared for shoot and root length and dry and fresh weight. All...

Genetic parameters and salinity tolerance index of some rice (Oryza sativa L.) genotypes

Soil salinity represents an increasing threat to rice production. The success of breeding programs employing traditional screening and selection for salinity tolerance has been limited in the past decades. Phenotyping of 30 rice genotypes was done in hydroponic system using Yoshida solution and salinized at control (0 NaCl), 4dS/m, 6dS/m and 12dS/m. Seedlings were exposed to different salinity levels for 10 days. Salinity...

Tolerance of Tithonia diversifolia and Chromolaena odorata in heavy metal contaminated soils.

Plant growth and development were investigated from selected dumpsites and simulated-polluted soils with heavy metals were investigated using two plant species: Tithonia diversifolia (Td) and Chromolaena odorata (Co). The plant biomass capabilities in phytoremediation of this plant species had not been fully exploited in Nigeria. The effect of soil heavy metal pollution has been of global concern since plants pass these...

Yield and growth performance of banana (Musa sapientum) varieties under Shewarobit Condition, Amahra Regional State, Ethiopia

Diversification of crops and increasing yield is crucial to endorse food security in Ethiopia. In line with this, Shewa robit is an area where out of the major horticultural crops most of the farmers are engaged in onion production only. Hence, introduction and expansion of other horticultural crops may help to improve the livelihood of the farmers and alleviate malnutrition. To fill the gap in part, an experiment was...

Effect of seaweed extract of Sargassum dentifolium on germination behaviors of bean cultivar (masr-1) under salt stress

Salinity stress is one of the major factors limiting agricultural production. About 20% land worldwide is subjected to salinity stress. Bean (Cv Masr-1) is an important crop occupying a large area in the world. Salt stress affects most aspects of the plant physiology and biochemistry and significantly reduces yield and limit agricultural production worldwide. In the present investigation, an attempt was made to study the...
