      Authors: V. O. Dania

      Abstract: The disease causing ability of Colletotrichum coccodes and the effect of anthracnose on growth and yield of sweet potato accessions were evaluated in a two-year field trial. Field layout was a randomized complete block design with 16 sweet potato accessions replicated thrice. Young leaves of sweet potato accessions were sprayed with an inoculum concentration of 2.1 × 107 in a two-split application in the field with growth, yield, and disease indices recorded. Pathogenicity of C. coccodes was significantly highest among four accessions; OW4, SE10, SE12 and SPK-004 with abundant necrosis on leaves and stems of inoculated plants. Disease incidence varied between 2.48% - 52.83%, and 2.77% - 50.73%, during the 2018 and 2019 planting seasons respectively, with host response ranging from being susceptible to resistant. Accessions OW5 and OS15 had significantly lower disease incidence and severity than other treatments (p = 0.031 and 0.28 respectively) and also produced the highest yield ranging between 15.84 - 17.29, and 14.88 - 15.72 t/ha-1, in 2018 and 2019, respectively. This study has shown that anthracnose causes significant reduction in expected yield in sweet potato cultivation and also identified two resistant sweet potato accessions that can be useful sources in breeding for resistance to the disease.

      Abstract: Integrating renewable energy (RE) technologies into agriculture can contribute to attaining sustainable production. Farmers’ adoption of RE in agriculture can lead to substantial reductions in Greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions as well as providing alternative income sources for farmers, and reliable energy supplies for farms and households. Policies can facilitate, support, or encourage farmers’ adoption of RE. However, it is not clear what policies currently exist which facilitate or promote the adoption of RE technologies in Ghanaian agriculture. This paper aims to identify policies in Ghana that can facilitate the adoption of RE in agricultural production. A policy review was conducted to identify such policies, evaluate their potential impact on RE adoption, and suggest paths to enhance RE adoption by farmers. These policies are focused on two aspects: 1) promoting solar energy and 2) the conversion of agricultural waste to energy. Noting limitations including the underdevelopment of the RE sector and the lack of a central policy to promote RE utilization in Ghanaian agriculture, the review suggests that policymakers need to fully implement provisions of the Renewable Energy Act-(832) (2011) through the application of, for example, policy levers such as subsidies, tax exemptions, financing, and training potential end-users in the agricultural community.

      Abstract: The use of adaptation strategies remains the only approach to reduce and combat the effects posed by climate change all over the world. We explored the extent of usage of adaptation strategies by farmers in Ekiti and Ogun States. 358 men and 222 women farmers were surveyed using multi-stage procedure. We employed semi-structured questionnaire and focus group discussions to collect data from the respondents. The data were analysed descriptively and presented in percentages and frequency counts. The data were further subjected to Chisquare, Pearson’s Product Moment Correlation, t-test, multiple linear regression analysis and Explorative Factor Analysis (EFA). The findings revealed that the majority of men (99.7%) and women farmers (96.8%) perceived to adapt to climate change. Men (= 2.29) relative to women (= 2.33) used more on-farm adaptation strategies. The strongest determinant of usage of climate change adaptation strategies by men farmers was climate change adaptation barriers (t = 5.13, p < 0.01), while for women farmers, climate change experience (t = 7.42, p < 0.01) was the strongest determinant. The promotion of gender-sensitive approaches to climate change adaptation that cater for the needs of men and women farmers is highly essential to enhance adaptation among them.

  • Economics of bio-fortified cassava varieties (BCVs) adoption and its

      Abstract: Cassava bio-fortification is presented as a cost-effective approach, and it is predicted to provide some economic benefits to its adopter. On the other hand, gender-blind agricultural innovation delivery strategies impede short- and long-term impact among adopters. Due to a disregard for gender differences, many agricultural programs fall short of their objective. Recent studies in Nigeria are yet to adequately capture the gender differentials in the economic implication of BCVs adoption. This study, therefore, investigates the gender differentials in the economic implication of BCVs’ adoption among farmers in Oyo State, Nigeria. A multistage sampling procedure was used to select a total of 180 respondents for the study. Data collected were analyzed using descriptive statistics and budgetary techniques. Descriptive statistics revealed a significant difference between the socio-economic characteristics of male and female cassava farmers. The results suggested that BCVs’ production is profitable and can serve as a panacea for the economic improvement of households. Study findings thus concluded that the adoption of BCVs is economically beneficial to cassava farmers and thus recommended that concerted efforts are made to ensure all farmers adopt BCVs for planting. The study proposes an integration of gender-responsive strategies to further enhance the delivery of BCVs in Nigeria.

      Pages: 72 – - 72 –
      Abstract: An experiment was carried out to evaluate the serum total protein, glucose, liver, kidney and haematological response to varied levels of exogenous L-Selenomethionine (L-SeMet). Twenty four male rabbit bucks, about 10 months old were randomly allotted to four treatments in a completely randomized design. Blood samples were collected at day 21 and day 42 from the bucks and processed for total protein, glucose, haematocrit, haemoglobin, erythrocytes, leukocytes,
      and leukocyte differential count determination. Serum total protein was significantly (p < 0.05) higher in rabbits administered 0.3 mgkg-1 and 0.4 mgkg-1 at day 21 than those fed 0.2 mgkg-1. However, Glucose, alanine aminotransferase, spartate aminotransferase, and alkaline phosphatase were not significantly influenced by L-SeMet administration at both days 21 and 42. Blood urea was significantly (p < 0.05) lower in bucks administered 0.4 mgkg-1 L-SeMet compared
      to the control. Creatinine and sodium levels in the bucks were also not significantly influenced by L-SeMet. This suggested that exogenous supplementation of L-SeMet did not have adverse effect on the physiological processes of the rabbit bucks. Increased serum total protein observed in the experimental animals could be attributed to L-SeMet administration to the rabbit bucks which probably enhanced dietary protein utilization and/or protein synthesis.

      Abstract: Combining organic and inorganic fertilizer has been proved to be an effective and sustainable soil management strategy for increased crop yield and safe environment. Field experiments were conducted in two locations in Nigeria namely Malete and Shao during 2018 and 2019 seasons. This was to find out the efficacy of organic and inorganic fertilizer (including prilled and granular urea) and their various combinations on grain yield and agronomic characteristics of maize. The use of full dose of P and K + 75% N through Granular Urea + 25 % N through farmyard manure improved most of the soil chemical properties with high economic returns. It was concluded from the experiment that a combination of organic and inorganic fertilizers is an environmentally friendly practice and could lead to high yields and improve farmers’ income and their livelihoods.

      Abstract: This study evaluated the effect of coconut water and benzyl adenine on the stimulation of corms for stolon and sucker production for increased planting material production. A Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) with three replications was used. There were four levels of benzyl adenine (BA): 5 mg L-1/plant, 1.0 mg L-1/plant, 1.5 mg L-1/plant and zero treatment as control; four levels of coconut water (CO): 10 ml/plant; 15 ml/plant; 20 ml/plant and zero treatment as control and two taro varieties; BLSM 80 and BLSM 16. Results showed that the appropriate level of benzyl adenine required for inducing more stolon and sucker production was 1.5 mgL-1. Optimum levels of coconut water required was 15 ml. A multiplication ratio of 1:15 and 1:16 suckers and stolons for CO and BA treatments, respectively was achieved. Planting the suckers in three cycles in a year, a potential of 3,375 or 4,096 stolons and suckers could be generated when the taro is treated with either CO or BA respectively. Benzyl adenine or coconut water can be used to induce many stolons and suckers to generate more planting materials. Farmers who cannot obtain commercially made benzyl adenine can use coconut water for the process.

      Abstract: Rotten sweet potato root tuber samples were collected from a barn and experimental field of the CSIR - Plant Genetic Resources Research Institute (PGRRI), Bunso. Isolation and identification of the fungi associated with the samples were carried out at the Plant Pathology Laboratory of the same institute. In all, six fungal species belonging to four genera, namely Fusarium solani, Sclerotium rolfsii, Lasiodiplodia theobromae, Aspergillus ochraceus, Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus niger were isolated from the samples from both the barn and the experimental field of CSIR - PGRRI. Fusarium solani and Aspergillus niger were frequently isolated from the sweet potato tuber samples from both the field and the barn. Pathogenicity tests carried out using the six fungal isolates on fresh and healthy sweet potato tubers showed that all the six fungi isolated were pathogenic in causing rot of sweet potato tubers with Lasiodiplodia theobromae being the most virulent.
