Design, construction and performance evaluation of solar maize dryer

  This paper presents the design, construction and performance evaluation of solar drying for maize, the solar drying system consists of V-groove collector of 2.04 m² area, drying chamber and blower. It was designed in such a way that solar radiation is not incident directly on the maize. K-type thermocouples were used for temperature measurement, while solar radiation was measured by solar meter m od.776....

Histopathology of Raphia hookeri leaf infected with Glomerella cingulata causing seedling blight

  The host-pathogen relationship between the Raphia hookeri seedling leaf and Glomerella cingulatashowed that the host cells were macerated. This allowed penetration of the pathogen through the hypodermis to the palisade tissue which resulted in dark coloration and disruption of the transfusion tissues. Hypersensitivity reaction was observed. The xylem and phloem were left without any attachment...
