Assessment of Soil Fertility in Terms of Essential Nutrients Contents in the Lower Benue River Basin Development Authority Project Sites, Benue State, Nigeria

Ahola David Oklo, Igwe Ageh Armstrong, Ocheri Maxwell Idoko, Terhemba Simeon Iningev, Akoji Adeka Emmanuel, Rebecca Onyela Oklo
The focus on this research work is on soil fertility and involves the consideration of soil organic matter, soil structure, soil microbial population etc. Project sites of Lower Benue River Basin Development Authority (LBRBDA) were evaluated to ascertain the soil fertility levels in terms of their nutrient contents. Data were obtained using Classical methods of analysis. The average soil pH were in the range of (5.84 ± 0.30 - 6.32 ± 0.040), the soil organic matter content were in the range of (0...

Micronutrient Contents of Heritiera fomes Species at Three Saline Zones of the Sundarban Mangrove Forest, Bangladesh

Hasina Mariam, A. N. M. Alamgir
Micronutrient or essential heavy metals viz. Copper (Cu), Zinc (Zn) and Iron (Fe) distribution trend were studied at the age of 6, 9 and 30 months old Heritiera fomes seedlings at three distinct saline zones viz. Chandpai (Oligohaline), Jungra (Mesohaline) and Munshiganj (Polyhaline) of the Sundarban mangrove forest. Among the observed micronutrients, Fe content comparatively lower than Cu and Zn. Relatively higher Cu was found in the root of 6 month age Heritiera fomes seedlings grown at the Ch...

Effects of Salinity Level on Biochemical Constituents of Heretiera fomes Buch-Ham. and Excoecaria agallocha L. at the Three Saline Zones of the Sundarban Mangrove Forest

Hasina Mariam, A. N. M. Alamgir, Mohammad Mezan Ul Hoque
Biochemical constituents viz. protein and proline (Amino acid) content of early (6, 9 months) and grown-up ages (30 months) of Heritiera fomes Buch-Ham and Excoecaria agallocha L. seedlings were investigated at three saline zones viz. Chandpai (Oligohaline), Jungra (Mesohaline) and Munshiganj (Polihaline) of the Sundarban mangrove forest. In the leaf of early ages H. fomes showed comparatively higher protein content when grown in oligohaline zone but E. agalloc

Geotechnical Appraisal of Ile-Oluji Federal Polytechnic Using Geographical Information System (GIS)

Olumuyiwa Samson Aderinola, Ajibola Ibrahim Quadri
The use of Geographic Information System has been a good solution for database management due to the fact that Geographical information system has the ability to store, manipulate, analyze and display graphical in-formation that has been referenced to a location on the earth. With the aid of Geographic Information System, the research was able to produce a map showing the AASHTO soil classificatio

The Effect of Grassland Management History on Soil Carbon Response to Slurry and Urea

Junfang Cui, Nicholas M. Holden
Slurry and urea applications are part of normal nutrient management on grassland farms utilizing grazed grass and silage for animal production. It was hypothesized that management history would result in a different carbon response to slurry and urea applications for the same soil type because of differences in soil micro-environment, including microbial biomass and activity, are formed and regulated by long-term ma

Wetland an Economical Solution for Wastewater Rehabilitation

Mamdouh F. Abdel-Sabour
Wetland system relies on renewable energy sources such as solar and kinetic energy and wetland plants and micro-organisms, which are the active agents in the treatment process. Wetlands can remove inorganic nutrients, heavy metals, dissolved organic carbon, particulate organic matter, and suspended solids from the water column and sediments, as well as play a key role in supporting food webs and influencing global climate change through their role in methanogenesis. Using constructed wetla...
