This research work was carried out to investigate the proximate and mineral composition of some traditional vegetables in Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria. These vegetables include: Talinum triangulare, Hensia crinita, Cucurbita maxima and Lasianthera africana. The vegetables were washed in potable water to remove unwanted matters and were analyzed for proximate and mineral content. All analyses were carried out in three replicates and the mean data were presented on tables using the spread sheet Microsoft Excel. Talinum triangulare had the highest protein content (56.72%) and moisture content (80.11%) but had the lowest content of ash (6.31%), crude fibre (2.96%) and carbohydrate (6.91%). Ash and crude fibre were present in low quantities in Talinum triangulare, Hensia crinita, and Lasianthera africana, except Cucurbita maxima which had the highest composition of ash (14.06%) and crude fibre (9.37%). Mineral composition (Potassium (K), Calcium (Ca), Magnesium (Mg) and
This paper assesses the net welfare associated with the adoption of Bench Terraces (BT), Contour Bunds (CB), and Napier Grass Strips (NGS) in the Saba Saba sub-catchment of the Upper Tana catchment in Kenya. An agro-economic survey and informal interviews were conducted in the Saba Saba sub-catchment to elicit farm level quantitative data for the Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA). Financial functions in excel were used to analyze the on-site costs and benefits of adopting the identified SWC technologies on farms with crops such as maize, coffee, and tea. In this research CBA was used as a decision tool after the computation of all cost and benefits were valued in local currency to obtain the Net Present Value (NPV) or net welfare. The results show that investment in SWC measures may not be a feasible short-term option from farmers’ perspective. There is, therefore, a strong case for intervention, especially in the initial years where SWC adoption yields negative returns.
- The present investigation was carried out at field trail of Main Experimental Station, Vegetable Science N.D.U.A. & T., Kumarganj, Faizabad (U.P.) during 2011-12 to study the performance of turmeric cultivars. Cultivar NDH-7 and NDH-8 was found superior in growth characteristics such as plant height, yield of rhizome/plant. NDH-8 found tallest (111.2 cm) while, yield of rhizome per plant was recorded in NDH-7 (303.00 g). The results showed that moisture, mineral, curcumin and essential oil ranged from 9.4 to 12.2 per cent, 3.39 to 5.30 per cent, 3.7 to 5.9 per cent and 3.32 to 8.19 per cent, respectively. NDH-7, NDH-8 and Prahba were found superior among all cultivars and variety.
In this paper a hexagonal patch microstrip antenna with hexagonal slot behaves as a wide band monopole antenna having great return loss. It is designed for 1.1194-2.7078 GHz frequency band with wide bandwidth of 1.5884 GHz and return loss of - 73.63dB. A hexagonal patch with etched ground plane monopole antenna with hexagonal Slot is fabricated on the glass epoxy (FR4 lossy) of dielectric substrate with relative permittivity (εr) of 4.3, thickness of 1.6mm, loss tangent of 0.02 with a ground plane, fed with a 50Ω rectangular microstrip feed line. This prototype antenna having an omnidirectional radiation pattern is measured for frequency range of 0-3 GHz. The novelty of this antenna is that hexagonal patch with hexagonal slot gives it uniqueness in design and also getting a bandwidth approx 1.6 GHz with -73dB Return loss is big achievement in 0-3 GHz frequency Band itself. As the antenna is designed only in 0- 3GHz band, having all such properties in one antenna p
Agriculture is an economic activity that manifests the complex relationship between natural and human resources. The growth of agriculture is prerequisite for overall development of Indian economy. It contributes significantly to the export earnings and affects the performance of other sectors of the economy through forward and backward linkages. The present paper analysis disparities in agricultural development in Aligarh district at block level during the period of 2011-12. The analysis of the study have been carried out by transforming and combining data related to various variable, (percentage of literate people to total population, percentage of agricultural workers to total workers, percentage of net sown area to total geographical area, fertilizers consumption in kg per hectare, percentage of net irrigated area to net sown area, percentage of canal irrigation to the net irrigated area, percentage of tube well irrigation to the net irrigated area, number of agricul
This paper is mainly concerned with the application of countability theory in Finance. The author undertakes to explain countability theory for infinite countables not only in a precise manner but also gives analytical examples to simplify the theory even further. Some of the ways of ascertaining countability of infinite countables as indicated by the author entail: finding a bijection, finding a surjection, through a listing of elements and also through the determination of whether the elements are injective. The paper amalgamates Finance and countability by determining main areas in which the theory of countability is applicable in Finance. The paper explores: countability of Financial Statements constitutes, profit countability, countability of required rate of return, countability of company financing, countability in determination of capital investment decisions, countability in working capital constituents and countability in projection of financial statements’ dat

Farming systems represent integration of farm enterprises such as cropping systems, animal husbandry, fisheries, forestry, etc. for optimal utilization of resources bringing prosperity to the farmer. The present study has been made to identify types of farming system and to assess the potentialities for increasing farm income through reallocation of resources in farming system. The data were collected from 90 respondents pertaining Chittoor district of Andhra Pradesh during 2012-13. The study revealed that maximum return obtained from dairy based farming system.
