Inoculant, nitrogen and phosphorus improves photosynthesis and water use efficiency in soybean production- Legume cropping systems

Canon Norris Savala Engoke, Kyei-Boahen Stephen, Alexanda Nimo Wiredu & Okoth John
The project proposes to use win-win public-private partnership approaches to disseminate improved legume seeds and complementary crop management practices developed under PARTI collaboration over the past six years. Through PARTI partnerships, 5 varieties of soybean were released. Most of the varieties are drought tolerant, resistant to endemic pests and diseases, have end-user preferred traits, and show significant increases in yields on farmers’ fields.

Effects of genotype and growing environment on the chemical properties of yellow-fleshed cassava roots

Emmanuel Alamu, Busie Maziya-Dixon, Oreofeoluwatomi Lawal & Gilbert Alfred Dixon
The study evaluated the effect of genotype and growing locations on biofortified cassava root genotypes’ chemical properties. Twenty-eight genotypes of biofortified yellow and white-fleshed cassava were planted across four geographical areas in Nigeria and harvested for two seasons. This research analyzed the chemical properties (DM, VC, TC, and CNP) of the samples using standard laboratory procedures. ANOVA, descriptive analysis, PCA, and HCA was carried out on the generated data using SAS software. Genotypes 94/0006 and...

Diversity, frequency and geographic distribution of bacterial endosymbionts in banana aphids in Cameroon

Enoh Aime Cheoh, R Hanna, A Emapi, S Ngatat, J Akoachere, F Tatsinkou, K Fiaboe & P. Lava Kumar
The project aims to develop management strategies to enable continued banana-plantain production in areas of Sub-Saharan Africa severely affected by banana bunchy top disease, restrict further spread of the disease, and to search in Southeast Asia for banana germplasm resistant to BBTV for use in breeding resistant varieties.

Impact of genotype, harvesting time, and location on the functional and pasting properties of fresh orange maizes (Hybrids and OPV)

Emmanuel Alamu, Busie Maziya-Dixon, Abebe Menkir, Michael Adesokan & Olorunfemi Olaofe
The study evaluates the effects of genotype, maturity, and growing location on the functional and pasting properties of freshly harvested orange maize hybrids and open-pollinated varieties (OPVs). Eight fresh orange maize hybrid and eight fresh maize OPV, including the control, were harvested at three stages:20, 27, and 34 days after planting (DAP). The freshly harvested maize samples were lyophilized and characterized for the pasting and functional properties using standard laboratory methods. The peak viscosity, final...
