The Level and Determinats of Technical Efficiency in Fodder Production in Homa Bay County, Kenya

Mary Stacey Ayuko, Job Kibiwot Lagat, Michael Huaser
Fodder production is important for dairy producers in Kenya as it plays a major role in the quality and quantity of milk produced. It contributes to improved income through forage sales, milk sales and livestock sales. There has been an increasing demand for fodder both locally and in neighboring countries. This has led to an increase in the production of fodder in the country. Despite the growing demand of fodder in Kenya, the current production does not meet the demand. In response, efforts ha...

Selecting Firstly Vegetative Body Characters Being an Important Way of Crossing Breeding of Crops

Peizhan Tian
Small leaf blade was 1st selected and bred new variety Pinandou 8, its biggest LAI was 6.5, obtaining 5114 kg/hm2 highest yield. Its yield stability also was the best. Because small leaf blade was first selected, thin stem, more branches and long branches and more nods were induced and produced. Also, we can say that selection of small leaf blades guided the change of enlarging way of the vegetative body. This showed that adjustment of a balanced relationship of unity of opposites among traits o...

Simulation of the Growth and Leaf Dynamic in Quality Protein Maize and Soybean Intercropping Under the Southwestern Savannah Conditions of DR Congo

Gertrude Pongi Khonde, Jean-Pierre Kabongo Tshiabukole, Roger Kizungu Vumilia, Antoine Mumba Djamba, Amand Mbuya Kankolongo, Kabwe K. C. Nkongolo, Jean-Claude Lukombo Lukeba
This paper contributes to the development of methodological tools to understand and predict the functioning of cereal-legume crop associations through mathematical approaches, simulating field cultivation. These mathematical models also show that the competition that exists in the mixed culture could be the main aspect that affects the yield in relation to the establishment of cereal monocultures. In this study, it was shown that maize was spatially dominant over soybean in intercrops, specifica...

Economic Analysis of Cashew Apple Value Chain within the Collines Department of Benin

Raoul Akanro, Genaud Roméo Kede, Marie Odile Attanasso, Joseph Dossou
This study aims at providing an economic analysis of the valorisation of cashew apples as a means of significantly improving the income of the actors of this value chain in Benin. The sample of our study covers 110 participants and 30 groups in the cashew apple value chain within the Collines department during the 2020-2021 season. In terms of methodological approach, indicators of financial profitability of processing units were estimated. The results of this study reveal that on average, the i...

Characterization of Rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus) Production System in Partido

Rexces James D. Lopez
Rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus) farming has recently contributed to major impacts on food security in both local and holistic aspects. This paper aimed to identify the socio-demographic profile of rabbit raisers in Partido and characterize their motivation in pursuing rabbit production. This study was conducted in the 4th congressional district of Camarines Sur. It had a total of 24 rabbit farmer respondents who are raising at least 10 rabbit heads and with one-year production experience f...

Weeds Associated to Habanero Pepper (Capsicum chinense Jacq.) in the Village of Muna, Yucatan, Mexico

Wilson Avilés-Baeza, Mónica Guadalupe Lozano-Contreras, Jorge H. Ramírez-Silva, Juan Jasso-Argumedo, Rubén Guerrero-Medina
The objective of this study was to know the weed species associated with the cultivation of Habanero Pepper (HP) in the municipality of Muna Yucatan, Mexico that could help to define the best weeds management strategies for producers in the region. Weed collection was made in a lot where the HP was about to be grown. The weed species were identified one week before the establishment of the crop (Jaguar variety). For taxonomic identification of weeds, images of the adult plant with flowers, fruit...

Effects of Plant Growth Regulators on Starch Accumulation and Brewing Quality of Rice

Lin Xie, Hui Wu, Hongbo Huang, Li Sun, Bo Yang, Haifang Dai
Rice is one of the main raw materials for rice wine and multi-grain Baijiu. The fine structure of rice starch and biochemical components such as protein, lipid and tannin content has significant effects on rice gelatinization and fermentation characteristics. However, the existing studies on plant growth regulators mainly focus on rice grain filling, rice quality and stress resistance, and there are few studies on the fine structure of rice starch, protein, lipid and tannin content, and its appl...

Forage Nutrient Variability Associated with Hypomagnesemia and Hypocalcemia

M. H. Rahman, K. R. Islam, S. Chiba, A. Komuro, T. Kawakami, M. Tsuiki, S. Saiga
Seasonal variation of crown mineral concentrations in cool-season forages and hypomagnesemia (grass tetany), as well as hypocalcemia (milk fever) risk, were assessed using the grass tetany index (GTI) and dietary cationanion difference (DCAD). Thirty-three cultivars from orchardgrass, festulolium, smooth bromegrass, perennial ryegrass, meadow fescue, tall fescue, alfalfa, white clover and red clover were grown on Andisol in northern Japan. Plants were harvested thrice, and mineral contents were ...

Response of Quality Protein Maize to the Synchronization of Application and Needs for NPK Fertilizer in Acid Soils of the South-West of the DR Congo

Jean Pierre Kabongo Tshiabukole, Gertrude Pongi Khonde, André Matondo Phongo, Nlandu Ngoma, Roger Kizungu Vumilia, Amand Mbuya Kankolongo, Antoine Mumba Djamba, Jean Claude Lukombo Lukeba, Rebecca Mitshiabu Mudiayi
To understand the response of quality protein maize to the different dates of NKP basal fertilizer application in the acid soils of the southwest of the DRC, an experiment was carried out during two cropping seasons (2019-2021) following a factorial design. The first factor was the season (two levels), the second was the period of fertilizer application (three levels) and the third was the variety (four levels). The experiment was repeated three times. Two varieties of quality protein maize were...

Management and Uses of Weeds in Andalusian Agricultural Treaties

Batul Al-Husein Raie
Since the control of weeds has been a constant concern in agriculture, new methods and products are being developed to control them. Currently, we are looking for effective and minimally invasive methods to treat them with. Therefore, this article explores the methods used in the Andalusian period, in many cases derived from the Greco-Byzantine tradition and then further developed. In the Andalusian treatises there are hardly any chapters specifically dedicated to weed extermination, however, th...
