Nowadays, expensive chemical fertilizers are mostly used by farmers, but there are organic fertilizers which are very useful to crops that would give better results than chemical fertilizer and can conserve soil. With this, the researchers choose to conduct this study that aims to determine the effects of chicken dung and vermicast as organic fertilizer on the growth and yield of string beans. Chicken dung and vermicast are the two organic fertilizers use in the study. It will be applied to the string beans, and the growth and yield of the string beans will be observed in order to know the effects of chicken dung and vermicast on the string beans. The study will be beneficial to farmers, gardeners, local government unit such as DENR, DA, families who have gardens in their backyards and also those who love gardening. This will elevate family income to farmers and gardeners. This promotes healthy lifestyle because vegetables which are produced are chemical free. The researchers choose to conduct this study in order to have a clearer and deeper understanding on the use of chicken dung and vermicast as organic fertilizer and its effect on the growth and yield of plants. The study will also be a great help in promoting chicken dung.

The Combined Effect of Organic Manure (Cow Dung) and Inorganic Fertilizer (Npk15:15:15) on the Growth of Amaranthus Hybridus.

...ABSTRACT The project attempts to study the effect of organic manures and inorganic fertilizer on the growth and yield of Amaranthus hybridus grown for six (6) weeks. This project was carried out at the Oyo state college of agriculture, Igboora. The treatments includes; control (no manure or NPK), NPK (500kg/ha), Cow dung (2.5t/ha), NPK(250kg/ha) + Cowdung(1.2t/ha) and treatments was replicated three (3) times, plant height, girth, leaf count, leaf area and biomass yield of Amaranthus hybridus were used as parameters measured for six (6) weeks. The result was analyzed with the use of analysis of variance and the means separated with Duncan multiple ring test at 5% level of significant. The result indicated that the application of NPK(250kg/ha)+Cow dung(1.2t/ha) of organo-mineral fertilizer produce best result in terms of height plant, leaf count, girth and biomass yield of amaranthus hybridus. Statistically, NPK(250kg/ha) + Cowdung(1.2t/ha) is therefore recommended to raise amaranthus hybridus in a low fertile soil for maximum production. 1.0 INTRODUCTION Amaranthus hybridus is an important indigenous plant for rural household in Africa. Amaranthus is one of the oldest food crop. It is now receiving attention and demands information in production and management practices under local small holders conditions.

Biogas Production Using Pig Manure and Poultry Dungs, (Substrates) Onions and Fruit Wastes(Additives) and Fowl Rumen(Inoculum)

...Biotechnology, I.I.T., Delhi 1100016, India c Department of Mechanical Engineering, I.I.T., Delhi 1100016, India Received 31 July 2003; received in revised form 18 August 2003 Abstract Biogas, a clean and renewable form of energy could very well substitute (especially in the rural sector) for conventional sources of energy (fossil fuels, oil, etc.) which are causing ecological–environmental problems and at the same time depleting at a faster rate. Despite its numerous advantages, the potential of biogas technology could not be fully harnessed or tapped as certain constraints are also associated with it. Most common among these are: the large hydraulic retention time of 30–50 days, low gas production in winter, etc. Therefore, efforts are needed to remove its various limitations so as to popularize this technology in the rural areas. Researchers have tried different techniques to enhance gas production. This paper reviews the various techniques, which could be used to enhance the gas production rate from solid substrates.

Effect of Environmental Stress on Growth of Mung Bean

...of protein. Mungbean (Vigna radiata L.wilczek) is a summer pulse crop with short duration (50-90 days) and high nutritive value. The seeds contain 22-28 % protein,60-65 % carbohydrates, 1-1.5 % fat, 3.5-4.5 % fibers a4.5-5.5 ash, it has many effective uses, green pods in cooking as peas, sprout rich in vitamins and amino acids. This crop can be used for both seeds and forage since it can produce a large amount of biomass and then recover after grazing to yield abundant seeds. It can be used in broilers diets as a non-traditional feed. In Bangladesh, per capita daily consumption of pulses is only 13.29 g/day (BBS, 2011). While the World Health Organization (WHO) suggests consuming 45 g/day per capita pulses in Bangladesh. To maintain the supply of this level, the Government of Bangladesh has to spend a huge amount of foreign currency each year. Annual import of pulses in Bangladesh is approximately 108000 m tons (BBS, 2011). Mungbean is highly adapted to the agro-climatic condition of Bangladesh. Though the agro-ecological condition of Bangladesh is favorable for Mungbean cultivation, its area under cultivation and total production are low in this country. In Bangladesh, they can be incorporated in between rabi/wheat and transplanted aman as summer pulses during April and May having the range of long term rainfall of 8 - 15 mm. However, during this pre monsoon time, there occur occasional heavy rains which cause serious damage to ......

Effects of Gadgets to the Academic Performance Among Students of Tupi National High School

...new things. The reason why computer technologies are invented is to help make people’s life easier and to improve their way of life, especially the students. Modern computer technologies make studying easier and fun to the students. As long as students don’t become fanatics when it comes to gadgets, we don’t think that they could have a bad influence or a bad effect on students. The gadgets make our life better in many ways. Let’s take for example the cell phone, many of you are “lost” without it and when it comes to students this device is more than just a cell phone, is a chat opportunity, an Internet connection, a camera and more. Because mobile phones have today a lot of features and they are not just devices made for communication between people. A negative effect of these gadgets on students can be the fact that they can become obsessive and the students can neglect everything else, like their social life, their family and friends. Is not a bad thing to have a computer, but is a bad thing to spend all your life in front of it pretending that everything else doesn’t exist. Otherwise, most gadgets have positive effects because they enable us to do things faster and easier and they are also good when it comes to learning new things and, let’s face it, they make our life a lot easier. There is some list of the essential gadgets for students we have: A laptop with the fast wireless internet connection enables the students to do their projects even if they are in a......

Comparative Study on the Agronomic Value of Vermicast to Conventional Compost and a Sustainable Alternative to Chemical Fertilizers

...STUDY ON THE AGRONOMIC VALUE OF VERMICAST TO CONVENTIONAL COMPOST AND A SUSTAINABLE ALTERNATIVE TO CHEMICAL FERTILIZERS by Marjonel F. Marges A Research Study presented to the faculty of Lumampong National High School-Indang Annex, Indang, Cavite in partial fulfillment of the requirements in Research I INTRODUCTION Food Production is is the process of transforming raw ingredients into prepared food products. Food production includes industries that take raw food products and convert them into marketable food items. Synthetic fertilizers are commonly used for growing all crops, with application rates depending on the soil fertility, usually as measured by a soil test and according to the particular crop. Studies have shown that application of nitrogen fertilizer on off-season cover crops can increase the biomass (and subsequent green manure value) of these crops, while having a beneficial effect on soil nitrogen levels for the main crop planted during the summer season. Nutrients in soil can be thrown out of balance with high concentrations of fertilizers. The interconnectedness and complexity of this soil ‘food web’ means any appraisal of soil function must necessarily take into account interactions with the living communities that exist within the soil. Stability of the system is reduced by the use of nitrogen containing fertilizers, which cause soil acidification. Applying excessive amounts of fertilizer has negative environmental effects, and wastes the......

...as stock feed and as fertilizers. World leading producers of tomato are soviet union, United States, Indiana, New Tersey and Alabema. Encyclopedia of science and technology 1982. In Nigeria, state that produce tomato in large quantities are Plateau, Oyo, Gombe and Benue State. The total average under tomato is not known in Nigeria which creates difficulties to estimate the annual production of tomato in the country. The average yield depends upon certain production factors, amongst their appropriate and balance nutrient on Fertilizer application is one of the most important factors for obtaining economic yield. 1.2 STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM Tomato production in West Africa is relatively low in comparism with the world total output, but its demand is steadily increasing as a result of large quantities of tomato are imported into West Africa annually, in Nigeria imported 4,572 tons of tomato paste and this data shows that there is inadequate production of tomato with in the country despite the importance of tomato in the diet and economy of the nation. The production has been far below the needs of fast growing population of Nigeria. This has been attributed to local traditional methods of its cultivation yielding 3-4 tons/ha (Nigeria many West African State). The research effort is therefore to search for the best production (yield) in this area through identification of ideal levels of fertilizer that will enhance yield in tomato production, since fertilizers are very costly......

...academic performance of grade seven learners at two primary schools in Chivi, Zimbabwe. Its main objective is to identify mitigation policies and measures designed to reduce negative effects of poor nutrition on children’s academic performance. Malnutrition remains one of the major obstacles to human well-being affecting all areas of a child's growth and development, including performance in the classroom. The study is grounded in Maslow’s motivational and needs theory. In this study, a qualitative phenomenological case study design was used with focus group discussions, interviews and observations as data collection instruments to twelve (12) grade seven learners, three (3) headmasters and four (4) teachers, purposively sampled in Masvingo province. Findings revealed that malnutrition affected physical growth, cognitive development and it consequently impacts on academic performance, health and survival of learners. Malnutrition also deepens poverty due to increased health care costs. The study also established that hungry and undernourished grade seven learners were not able to take on physical work and sporting activities seriously, are less able to attend school and if they do, are less able to concentrate and learn. On the way forward, there is need to introduce nutritional gardens at community, school and at family levels. Addressing the root causes of malnutrition (such as food insecurity, poverty, population growth and socio-economic instability) is imperative for......

The Effect of Commercial Fertilizers in the Growth of Pechay (Brassica Rapa)

...threaten its future. The use of inorganic fertilizers in industrial farming also causes soil pollution. These reasons spur the researchers to undertake this study. The researchers will investigate how commercial fertilizers affect in the growth of Pechay, and the acidity of the soil. Modern fertilizer consists of varying amounts of nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K). These three are believed to be essential for plants to grow, and are extracted from the soil with each harvest. This is why farmers spread fertilizer on their fields, to replace the nutrients lost. It’s certainly not the ideal and sustainable way to farm, but it’s thought to be the most efficient for large-scale farms. Strategies like crop rotation and allowing large fields to rest would cut too deep into profits that are based on quantity, opposed to quality. Earth's soil is now being depleted of nutrients at more than thirteen percent (13%) the rate it can be replaced. Not only that, but according to some, we may also be facing looming shortages of two critical fertilizer ingredients: phosphorus and potassium. (Dr. Mercola, 2013) In order to increase productivity in supplying plants, the soil needs to be fertile with its needed minerals and nutrients but by the excessive use of synthetic or inorganic fertilizers the soil becomes acidic thus, lessening the nutrients we can get from harvested crops and also contributes to soil pollution, while organic fertilizers are environment-friendly and......

Effect of Organic and Inorganic to Pechay in Drought Condition

...E-International Scientific Research Journal, Volume 5, Issue 4 EFFECT OF ORGANIC FERTILIZER ON THE GROWTH PERFORMANCE Of Brassica rapa UNDER LA UNION, PHILIPPINES ANGELITA J. PRADO Don Mariano Marcos Memorial State University La Union, Philippines ABSTRACT Growth performance of Pechay, Brassica rapa,was tested using two organically produced composts and an inorganic fertilizer serving as control. Addition of BioN during the basal application was part of the organic inputs. Treatments were distributed in 4 replicates following the Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD). Each treatment was composed of 16 plants at a distance planting of 20cmx40cm between hills and rows respectively. Application of basal fertilizer was done and harvesting was conducted twice starting from 30 days and 34 days. The effect of fertilizer was measured in terms of plant height, leaf area, weight of marketable leaves, weight of marketable plant, number of leaves per plant and the leaf area infestation. Except for leaf area pest infestation, result showed that those plants applied with vermicompost manifested the highest mean, though insignificant differences existed (P>.05) Hence, use of organic fertilizer is comparable with the use of urea in pechay production. It is recommended to organic farmers and gardening enthusiasts that use of organic inputs is preferred due to its econoic and environment friendly attributes. INTRODUCTION Pechay, Brassica rapa is a popular...

Growth Patterns in the U.S. Organic Industry

...United States Department of Agriculture Economic Research Service Growth Patterns in the U.S. Organic Industry by Catherine Greene U.S. consumer demand for organically produced goods has grown continuously since USDA established national standards for organic production and processing in 2002. And, while Americans economized on their food purchases during the 2007-09 recession, including purchases of organic products, growth in demand for organic products rebounded quickly following the recession. Industry analysts estimate that U.S. organic food sales were $28 billion in 2012 (over 4 percent of total at-home food sales), up 11 percent from 2011. USDA has begun organic regulation of nonfood agricultural products—for example, laundry detergent with organic coconut oil, aloe vera, and other ingredients—which accounted for another $2.2 billion in organic sales in 2011, according to the Organic Trade Association. Although USDA does not maintain official statistics on U.S. organic food sales, industry data suggest that the market share of organic sales held by various food categories has been remarkably stable over the last decade. Produce (fruits and vegetables) and dairy are still the top two organic food categories, accounting for 43 and 15 percent of total organic sales in 2012; their standing has been relatively unchanged in recent years. Packaged foods, beverages (including soymilk), and breads/grains have 9-11 percent market shares, down slightly from a...

Effect of Organic and Inorganic Fertilizers in Green Onion Plants

...by running ANOVA and Post Hoc tests to compute values for the variables. The goal was to find a positive correlation between the two variables. For that a hypothesis was tested that was proven to be negative. Alternatively, this proved the scientific validation of the null hypothesis i.e. “positive correlation exists between short term memory and listening to Mozart’s music.” The actual thesis statement is both precise and straight to the point yet some explanation has been given to elaborate the details of the study. Thesis Subject: The Effect of Mozart’s Music on Short Term Memory Sample Thesis Statement: The thesis statement is created from the essential question i.e. “is there any presence of a positive cause and effect relationship on the memory status of the students who listen to Mozart’s music, as it is propagated in the theory of Mozart’s effect”. The hypothesis tested for this study is, “Listening to Mozart’s music has no effect on human memory”. Thesis Statement Example 2 This is an example of a research essay thesis statement. While writing a thesis statement for a research essay you have to strictly take a for or against approach and then justify your argument. For such type of thesis statements, it’s best to gather your material beforehand and then write your thesis statement, lastly. In the first example, the thesis statement is vague and does not clearly illustrate the researcher’s point of view. It only gives a brief overview about the topic......
