Physical properties of high quality maize (Swam 1 variety) seeds (Zea mays) as affected by moisture levels

  A study was conducted to evaluate the physical properties that affect equipment design, processing, storage and transportation of high quality protein maize (SWAM 1) seeds as a function of moisture content varying from 9.38 to 32.7% (db). The length, width, thickness and the geometric diameter increased linearly from 9.80 to 10.55, 8.60 to 9.06, 4.00 to 4.75 and 6.85 to 7.69 mm, respectively. The sphericity...

Physicochemical and bacteriological analyses of drinking water from wash boreholes in Maiduguri Metropolis, Borno State, Nigeria

  Physicochemical and bacteriological analyses of water samples were carried out from five wash borehole used for drinking purpose in Maiduguri Metropolis, Nigeria. The bacteriological analysis was carried out using multiple tube (most probable number) technique for enumeration of both total coliform count and differential Escherichia colicount. The results obtained were compared with World Health...
