Treated wastewater as a partial nutrient source for Lily grown in a soilless system in presence of Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi

Purpose The reuse of treated wastewater (TWW) in agriculture may affect the growth of plants. The goal of this study is to investigate the potential use of TWW in irrigating Lily in presence of Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi (AMF) in a closed soilless system. Method In the first experiment, plants were irrigated with a mixture of […]

Comparing compost and vermicompost produced from market organic waste

Purpose This study was to obtain suitable methods and the combination of market organic waste to make better organic fertilizer. Method The data were obtained experimentally in the decomposer room. The experimental design was a completely randomized design. The market organic waste consisted of comparing cabbage, banana peduncle, pineapple, added rice straw, and cow manure as bedding. […]

Influence of composting conditions on gaseous emission and compost quality during composting of cow manure and wheat straw

Purpose The composting of manure is the common practice for the feedlots of cattle, but emission of gasses during composting was poorly understood. So, there is need to enhance nutrient contents in composting material, reduce odor and other impurities by various amendment in composting material. This study was planned to find best composting condition for quality […]

Composting of grease trap scum waste and green waste: Studying the effects of mix composition on physicochemical and biological process parameters

Purpose A huge number of sewer blockages are caused due to scum depositions. The scum waste from the kitchen wastewater can be converted into a resource by composting it. This study investigates the degradation of Grease scum or Fats, oils, and grease (FOG) waste from grease trap with Vegetable waste (VW) and Grass clipping waste […]

Vermicompost quality and earthworm reproduction in different organic waste substrates

Purpose The present study aims to evaluate the changes in parameters affecting the quality of vermicompost produced by the earthworm ‘Eisenia fetida‘ on different organic waste substrates using multivariate analysis, variance analysis, factor analysis and principal component analysis (PCA). Method A completely randomized design experiment was conducted with a 2 × 8 factorial arrangement of […]

Potential of Eisenia fetida (Redworm) for the conversion of three varieties of organic waste

Purpose The aim of this study was to assess the potential of Eisenia fetida (Redworm) in composting different types of waste, namely tea waste (TW), vegetable waste (VW) (leaves of cauliflower), and mixed food waste (MFW). Method The experiment was set up inside the Lab room during the summer. For vermicompost preparation, 27 equal size […]

Spectrometric evaluation of biotransformed agro-industrial residues and their humic substances by UV–visible and infrared spectroscopy and their effect on winter wheat productivity

Purpose Agro-industrial residues could be bio transformed to improve crop production and reduce environmental risk. Application of humic substances (HS) extracted from residues could be an alternative fertilization strategy. The objectives were i) to characterize different bio transformed agro-industrial residues (BR) and their HS by combining UV-vis and FT-IR techniques, and ii) to assess the […]

Growth, yield and nutrient uptake of two tomato varieties using some agricultural wastes as nutrient sources on an Alfisol of derived savanna

Purpose Agricultural wastes are by-product of agricultural processing. These wastes could serve as alternative materials for soil amendment and nutrient sources for crop production. A screen house experiment was conducted for two successive seasons (2019 and 2020) to evaluate the performance of charred poultry feather waste and plantain peel as nutrient sources on the growth, […]

Influence of Tithonia diversifolia and cattle manures on the growth and yield of sesame (Sesamum indicum L.)

Purpose Much cattle manure and Tithonia are in abundance in the Guinea savanna of Nigeria where sesame has been found to do well. The cost of inorganic fertilizer is going beyond the reach of the average sesame farmer; the need therefore arises to synthesize farming practices that incorporate the rich organic materials locally available as […]

Physicochemical properties of biochar produced from biodegradable domestic solid waste and sugarcane bagasse

Purpose This research aims to characterize the physical and chemical properties of biochar derived from biodegradable domestic solid waste and sugarcane bagasse, in order to evaluate their possible uses in agronomic and environmental applications. Method Biodegradable domestic solid waste and sugarcane bagasse-based biochar were pyrolyzed at two pyrolysis temperatures (500 and 700 °C). Biochar properties included the […]

Characterizing market crop waste as feedstock for composting to reduce environmental pollution in developing countries

Purpose Market crop waste (MCW) contributes significantly to the quantity of municipal solid waste generated in sub-Saharan Africa. These wastes, however, contain high levels of plant nutrients which can be harnessed through composting to improve soil organic matter and nutrient status of impoverished tropical soils. Method In this work, annual MCWs from two urban markets […]

Effect of biochar, biocompost and manure on the growth and productivity of alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.): Field and pots study

Purpose Biochar is a carbon-rich coproduct resulting from pyrolyzing biomass. Positive effects on productivity, soil stability, carbon sequestration, soil fertility have been validated by several studies. The aim of the present study is to compare the effect of different rates of biochar “BC TD” (produced from the pyrolysis of seeds of date ‘D’ and “Tomato […]

Rice husk biochar and inorganic fertilizer amendment combination improved the yield of upland rice in typical soils of Southern Guinea Savannah of Nigeria

Purpose Rice is a staple food in Nigeria, but its cultivation faces constraints of soil acidity, low soil fertility and rainfall variability. Research has shown that biochar has the potential to alleviate the effects of these conditions, but responses vary depending on soil and climate factors. Therefore, this study was conducted to evaluate the effects […]
