Performances of elite amaranth genotypes in grain and leaf yields in Northern Tanzania

Amaranth is one of the most commonly produced and consumed indigenous vegetables on the African continent. In Tanzania amaranth constitutes about 5.3% of total vegetable hectarage planted annually. Most cultivated varieties of amaranth are landraces with relatively poor leaf and grain yield. This study was conducted to identify genotypes with potential for dual purpose (leaf and grain) use for promotion or further...

Stability analysis of components characters in cowpea (Vigna unguiculata (L.) Walp)

Stability of yield and its attributes were assessed for nineteen genotypes over twelve environments (two seasons 2009 and 2010 × six planting dates), to determine the quantitative responses of cowpea genotypes. The interaction between genotypes and environments (G×E) were significant for all the characters studied characters except pod length, hundred seed weight and weight of pods per plant. The longest...

Alleviation of salt stress on Moringa peregrina using foliar application of nanofertilizers

Moringa peregrina plants were grown under four levels of saline water (0, 3000, 6000, 9000 ppm), and treated with sprayed Hoagland solution containing different concentrations of ZnO and Fe3O4 Nano-Particles (NP) (30, 60 and 90 mg/L); the normal Hoagland solution was used as a control. Results show that salinity levels significantly reduced growth parameters (plant height, root length, number of leaves, number of...
