Biofertilization of banana (Musa spp. L.) with free-living N2 fixing bacteria and their effect on mycorrhization and the nematode Radopholus similis

  Banana plants (Musa spp. L.) cv 'Great dwarf' were amended with free-living N2 fixing bacteria (FLNFB) and arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) and the presence of the burrowing nematode Radopholus similis was monitored in the field. Five treatments were applied by inoculating banana roots with four strains of FLNFB, that is C1, C2, C3 and C4 isolated from the...

Effect of different land use types and their implications on land degradation and productivity in Ogun State, Nigeria

  This study was designed to assess the extent to which land use types influence soil nutrients and productivity in Ogun State. Soils under four land uses were sampled for physical, chemical and biological analyses. The land use types studied were arable cropping (land use 1); oil palm (land use 2), secondary forest (land use 3) and building sites (land use 4). The results showed that soil nutrients vary from...
