Impregnation of mosquito net with Neem seed (Azadirachta indica) oil and its insecticidal action

  Malaria is a persistent health problem in Africa which requires multidimensional approaches to solve. Insecticide treated net has proved highly invaluable as one of the tools. Neem oil was extracted by solvent extraction in the present study and the oil was used to impregnate bednet. The result showed that the neem oil is a good mosquito repellant, in which its potential could be harnessed for further...

Tissue effects of high dose atropine and 2-PAM on healthy rats: Examining their role in complications during treatment of organophosphate poisoning

  The aim of this study was to determine the effects of high dose atropine and pralidoxime (2-PAM) on different tissues, and to evaluate the drugs’ probable roles in complications during organophosphate (OP) treatment, without using pesticides on healthy tissues. This study was designed as a randomized controlled experimental study consisting of three groups of 10 rats (the control group, the atropine...

Detection and tracking of ships using a stereo vision system

  Maritime transportation continues to maintain the largest volume in the transportation sector, and this is increasing day-by-day. This means there is an ever-increasing demand for safe navigation. In this study, we propose a stereo vision system for detecting and tracking ships as a tool for increasing navigational safety. Ships are detected from obtained images by using an edge detection algorithm that uses...

Effect of varied soil matric potentials on the zinc use efficiency of soybean genotypes (Glycine Max L.) under the calcareous soil

  Lime content of soils is one of the most important factors limiting zinc (Zn) availability to crops. It is also known that there may be a close relationship between soil moisture levels and Zn use efficiency of plant species. Thus, further studies would be needed concerning these relationships under the varied soils. In this study, a pot experiment was conducted using calcareous soil by growing different...
