Abstract

This study was carried out on 3 different products from 3 different firms: Biscuits with nut, Biscuits with fiber and Digestive biscuits. Moisture, vitamin E, refractive index (R I),free fatty acid (FFA), peroxide value (PO), iodine number, melting point, and rancimat value, of the biscuit sample were evaluated by analysis at the beginning as well as the end of storage period at room and at refrigerator. At the beginning, and at the end: 1-at room temperature in wood cupboard, 2-at refrigerator in the three factories. The results were respectively as the following: Moisture percentages were (3.486,4.220,4.200), the content of vitamin E which was (3.976,2.791,3.281) in mg/100 g dry matter in the products from the three different firms. The refractive index (365.667,416.333,428), FFA . …

NODULATION AND NITROGEN FIXATION PATTERN IN VIRUS INFECTED VICIA FABA

 

Author/s SHACHEE RAO, BD SINGH AND ANIL K DWIVEDI
Source International Journal of Research In Agriculture and Food Sciences pg 01 – 04 Vol 04. No. 01– 2016
Abstract Vicia faba is a common leguminous plant grown in many tropical countries. In addition of being a rich source of protein, this plant also fixes considerable amount of nitrogen in the soil. The setback with this plant is that it is susceptible to the infection of Bean Mosaic Virus (BMV). In light of the above, the present study was designed with the aim to study the morphology of the root nodule of BMV infected plant in light of a healthy plant. The growth trend of the nodule was found to be similar, . …

Abstract

Introduction: Herbaceous species play an important role in ruminant feeding worldwide. The nutrient balance of an animal is reliant on the nutrient requirements of the animal, the nutritional quality of feedstuffs, the amount consumed and its digestibility. Furthermore, the productive value of a pasture is mostly determined by the amount consumed by an animal and contribution of the required nutrients. In Zambia, forage species still serve as source of essential elements for grazing animals. However, little information . . …
