Genetic Variability and Heritability among Durum Wheat (Triticum turgidum L.) Accessions for Yield and Yield Related Traits Performance

Article in Press

Durum wheat is the second most important Triticum species next to bread wheat. Ethiopia is one of the centers of diversity for durum wheat. The aim of this study was to assess variability, heritability and genetic advance for some yield and yield-related traits. A total of 97 durum wheat accessions along with 3 improved varieties were evaluated in 10 x 10 simple lattice design during the 2018 main cropping season at Mata...

Combining Ability Analysis in Sunflower (Helianthus Annuus L.) Genotypes.

Article in Press

Eight sunflower inbred lines were crossed in 8×8 diallel fashion (without reciprocal) and 28 F1 were developed at Oilseed Research Centre (ORC), Bangladesh Agricultural Research Institute (BARI), Gazipur in Rabi season, 2018. All F1 and their parents were planted in Rabi season 2019 to estimate general combining ability (GCA) and specific combining ability (SCA) effects for yield and yield attributes. The highly...

Smallholder farmers’ storage practices and awareness on aflatoxin contamination of cereals and oilseeds in chamwino, dodoma, tanzania.

Article in Press

Agricultural produces in the tropics are vulnerable to mycotoxins contamination. Hot and humid conditions are favourable conditions for fungal growth and production of mycotoxins. Inadequate drying and storage practices aggravates the susceptibility of produce to mycotoxins contamination. The purpose of this study was to assess the storage practices and awareness of smallholder farmers on mycotoxin contamination of cereals...

Characterization of finger millet germplasm for mineral contents: Prospects for breeding.

Article in Press

Knowledge of existing genetic variability is essential for initiating a successful breeding program. A set of 628 finger millet accessions comprising of accessions from the core collection, farmer preferred and improved varieties released in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda were profiled for nutrient content. Accessions showed very high variability for the different nutrient contents. Local cultivars and varieties released in...

Evaluating the response of blended fertilizer (NPSB) on nutrient uptake of teff (Eragrostis tef /Zucc./Trotter) at central Tigray, north Ethiopia.

Article in Press

Teff [Eragrostis tef (Zucc.) Trotter] is originated in Ethiopia, and it is self-pollinated, cereal crop.Teff can grow in low and/or excessive moisture conditions than other cereals are dejected under these conditions.Regardless of its immenseoverall national food security of the country its productivity is relatively low. Poor soil fertility, erratic rainfall, and suboptimal management practices could be among the main...

Trend of Cereal Crops Production Area and Productivity, in Ethiopia

Article in Press

Although Ethiopia is endowed with diverse agro-ecologies suitable for cereal production; the success of the production relay more on climate condition. Therefore, this study was initiated to analysis trends of; cereal crops production area and productivity in Ethiopia. Data of meher season cereal crops productivity (qt/ha) and area of production (ha) were collected from Central statistical Agency (CSA) of Ethiopia. Trend...

Evaluating the response of NPSZnB fertilizer on yield and yield components of teff at North western zone of Tigray, Ethiopia.

Article in Press

Teff is one of the major crops grown in central and north western zones of Tigray regional satate. However, its productivity is low due to low soil fertility as result of intensive and long historycultivationand soil erosion. Therefore, a field experiment was carried out on a farmer’s field in Medebay zana and Tahtay koraro districts (Adekemalk and Beles kebelles) during the 2017 and 2018 main cropping seasons to...

Genotype and Trait Association in Groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.) Cultivars Based on Oil Traits and Quality Parameters

Article in Press

Genetic variation is essential to plant breeding for increasing yield, wider adaptation, parental selection for hybridization, desirable quality, and pest and disease resistance. Therefore, this study was planned to investigate genetic divergence and association of agromorphological and oil traits in groundnut cultivars.The crop was sown during 2015 wet season across four locations in randomized complete block design...

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

Article in Press

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...

Genetic Variation for Grain Yield and Yield Related Traits of Released Groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.) Varieties in Abergelle District, Northern Ethiopia

Article in Press

Groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.) also known as monkey-nut, peanut, earthnut and goobers, is a major cash crop and widely grown in all the tropical and subtropical regions of the world for direct use as food, oil and high protein meal, and is the second most important lowland oilseed crop after sesame in Ethiopia. However, its production and productivity is considerably low in Abergelle areas, Northern Ethiopia due to...
