Effect of vermiwash of Eisenia foetida produced by different methods on seed germination of green mung, Vigna radia

Vermiwash contains enzymes, macro and micronutrients that could stimulate the growth and yield of crops. It can be prepared by different ways. In the present study, vermiwash was produced from the earthworm, Eisenia foetida, under field condition and also in the laboratory under cold and heat stress methods. These washes were used in different ratios […]

Assessment of changes in different fractions of the organic carbon in a soil amended by nanozeolite and some plant residues: incubation study

Introduction Organic carbon (OC) fractions play important roles in soil and many ecosystem processes. This study focuses on changing of OC in density and soluble fractions in a soil amended by nanozeolite and plant residues that incubated in lab condition for 90 days. Results The results showed that amounts of OC in light fraction (LF) […]

Sewage sludge composting in a rotary drum reactor: stability and kinetic analysis

Background Composting is one of the sustainable practices to convert sewage sludge into useful agricultural product because it is rich in organic matter, micro- and macronutrients, which is essential for plants growth and soil fauna to live. Therefore, the present study was to recycle the sewage sludge by rotary drum composter. Five sets of experiments […]

Biological fungal treatment of olive cake for better utilization in ruminants nutrition in Egypt

Background Crop residues and agro-industrial by-products, available in appreciable quantities, can play a significant role in the nutrition of ruminants. The appropriate utilization of by-products in animal nutrition can improve the economy and the efficiency of agricultural, industrial and animal production. The present work investigates the bio-conversion of olive cake (OC), generated by the olive […]

The effect of feeding fresh swine manure, poultry waste, urea, molasses and bakery by-products ensiled for lambs

Introduction The use of by-products such as swine manure (SM), poultry waste (PW), urea (U), molasses (M) and bakery by-product (BB) is an alternative method for lamb feeding. The objective of the present study was to determine the chemical composition, dry matter intake and digestibility in growing lambs using ensiled PW combined with BB (PWBB), […]

Cultivable bacterial diversity and early plant growth promotion by the traditional organic formulations prepared using organic waste materials

Purpose Traditional organic formulations are widely used as a plant growth promoters; however, the knowledge on the microbial aspect of traditional organic formulations is still limited. The aim of this study was to illustrate the cultivable bacterial diversity of various traditional organic formulations and their potential for early plant growth promotion. Methods Five different traditional […]

Use of different organic fertilizers on soil fertility improvement, growth and head yield parameters of cabbage (Brassica oleraceae L)

Purpose Field experiment was carried out in Akure in the rainforest zone of Nigeria to determine the effect of poultry manure, wood ash and rice bran on the soil fertility improvement, growth and head yield of cabbage (Brassica oleraceae L) in 2011 and 2012 cropping seasons. Methods The three organic fertilizer treatments were applied each […]

Influence of vermi-fortification on chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) growth and photosynthetic pigments

Purpose The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of different vermicomposts and their dosages on chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) plants in pot culture experiment. Methods A total of five potting media were prepared containing soil and vermicompost. Soil fortified with 10 and 20 % vermicompost was used as potting media. The fertility […]
