Dyeing characteristics and antimicrobial efficacy of a natural dye from the flower Nyctanthesis arbortristis
Usha Raja Nanthini, A., Athinarayanan, G. and Ranjit singh, A. J. A.

Dyeing characteristics and antimicrobial efficacy of a natural dye from the flower Nyctanthesis arbortristis was analyses on two fabrics (cotton and silk) and five natural fibres (palm leaf, sambu grass-reed, banana fibre, srewpine, pineapple fibre and sisal. The Aqueous extract was very activity against Staphylococcus aureus. Escherichia coli, Vibrio harveyi, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Vibrio mimicus and Pseudomonas shigelloids had moderate sensitivity. But Bacillus subtilus, Salmonella...

Effect of harvest intervals on seed quality and viability of okra (Abelmoschus esculentus (L) Moench)
Nda, S. L., Oladiran, J. A., Ahmed, M., Isah, K. M. and Tswanya M. N.

Experiment was conducted on four varieties (LD27, FUTM1, FUTM2 and FUTM3) of Okra (Abelmoschus esculentus (L) Moench). Flowers were date-tagged at an thesis as they immediately opened. Fruits were harvested at 4,7,14,21,28,35 and 42 days after an thesis (DAA). Data were taken on fruit length, diameter, weight, and 100-seed weight. Germ inability was determined before and during storage. There was significant increase in fruit length and fruit diameter between 4 and 14DAA in L27, FUTM2 and...

Joseph Parbey, Emmanuel Okoh Agyemang, Stephen Tsike and Divine Atsu

Ghana’s National Energy Policy objectives includes aims to increase installed power generation capacity from about 2,000 MW to 5,000 MW by the year 2020 and subsequently increase the proportion of renewable energy in the total national energy mix. The researchers set out to assess the vegetable oil resource in the Ashanti Region of Ghana and its use in Diesel Generators for the generation of 5MW of electricity for KNUST. Palm Oil, Palm Kernel Oil and Soybean Oil were identified as the three...

Sridhar, S. G. D., Kanagaraj, G., Sharma, K. K., Mahalingam. S. and Priyalakshmi, R.

An attempt has been made in this present work to determine hydrochemical analysis and quality of groundwater in Kancheepuram district. Totally, eighty one groundwater samples were collected from dug and bore wells, during January and July 2008 representing post- and pre-monsoon seasons and analyzed for physical and chemical parameters. pH with an average value of 8.0 and 7.8 were observed during pre- and post-monsoon periods indicating the alkaline nature of the groundwater. Maximum TDS...

Tanko, L. and Obalola, T. O.

The study examined the profit efficiency among irrigated onion producers in Wamakko and Kware Local Government Areas of Sokoto State, Nigeria. Data were collected with the use of a structured questionnaire designed to elicit relevant information. A total of 120 respondents selected randomly were used in this study. The stochastic frontier profit function model was used in data analysis. The results showed that the mean profit efficiency obtained was 0.311, i.e., 31.1 percent, indicating...

Transferability of an approach to calibrate background air pollution concentrations
El-Said Mamdouh Mahmoud Zahran

The aim of this research paper is to investigate the transferability of an approach to calibrate background air pollution concentrations for improving the accuracy of air pollution modelling results. Using the central area of the City of Nottingham in the UK as a case study, an air pollution model in ADMS-Roads was created for investigating the applicability of this approach to a study area different from the one that was used in the initial development of this approach. The iterative...
