Competition indices and monetary advantage index of intercropping maize (Zea mays L.) with legumes under supplementary irrigation in Tselemti District, Northern Ethiopia

An understanding of competitive and monetary indices such as land equivalent ratio (LER), land equivalent coefficient (LEC), relative crowding coefficient (K) and monetary advantage index (MAI) is critical in recommending cropping systems in a given area. To appreciate this, an experiment was conducted in Tselemti, Tigray region, Northern Ethiopia. Maize (Zea mays L.) was intercropped with Soybean and Mung bean in a 50:50...

Moisture Requirement and Water productivity of Selected Rainfed Rice Varieties Grown under Controlled Water Environment in Ifakara, Tanzania

Moisture availability is a fundamental challenge to rice productivity in the rainfed environment. Most of the rice varieties released for cultivation under rainfed ecosystem in Tanzania are missing out on information about their moisture requirement under different soil moisture regimes. A pot experiment was conducted at Ifakara in a split-plot design. The main plots was assigned to water regimes of 100%, 75%, 50%, and 25%...

Variety x nitrogen fertilizer interaction on striga control, yield and yield related attributes of sorghum [Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench] under striga infestation at Abergelle district, Northern Ethiopia

Sorghum [Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench] an important food crop in Ethiopia is ranked second for “injera” quality next to tef. However, the productivity of sorghum is constrained by many biotic and abiotic factors amongst striga hermonthica (Del.) Benth is the most specialized root-parasitic weed inflicting serious injury by depriving water, minerals and photosynthesis from the host. Striga hermonthica is becoming the major...

Effect of Alternaria sp on seed germination in rapeseed, and its control with seed treatment

In present work the role of Alternaria sp was investigated on seed vigor of rapeseed Brassica napus. Seed samples were collected from rapeseed growing regions of Sindh province. The samples were processed for fungal recovery through blotter paper and agar plate methods. Both the methods produced a number of parasitic and saprophytic fungi. Among recovered fungi Alternaria sp was predominant with 16% average infection....
