ABSTRACT

Data were collected on the following number of leaf, number of leaflet, days of germination, number of petiole, number of nodes and number of internodes, there were no significant difference (P = 0.05) on effect of nursery media on leaf number and leaf let number according to table 9. The experiment to determine the influence of seed scarification and nursery media on Juvenile Phenology of African oil been was conducted during the 2012 planting season at the Department of Agronomy and Ecological Management Enugu State University of Science and Technology Green House, Enugu.  The experiment was land out in a 3 x 7 factorial in completely randomized design (CRD) with 3 replicates.  The treatment comprises three types of seed scarification viz: control, partial scarification and total scarification and 7 nursery media: viz Top soil, sawdust etc. Data were collected on number of days to plant emergence, plant height etc.  The Pentaclethra macrophylla seeds were also quantitatively analyzed to determine the proximate and mineral composition.  The results obtained indicated significant (P < 0.05) difference among the treatment and the nursery media.

    CHAPTER ONE 1.0   INTRODUCTION         Ugba also called ukpaka is a popular food delicacy in Nigeria especially among Ibo ethnic group. It is rich in protein and is obtained by a solid state fermentation of the seed of African oil bean tree (Pentaclethra macrophyllaBenth). It is essential food item from various traditional ceremonies... Continue Reading
    ABSTRACT Ugba is a delicacy popular among the Ibo ethnic group of Nigeria, made by the fermentation of boiled seeds of African oil bean (Pentaclethra macrophyllea Benth). The microorganisms and compounds influencing the organoleptice properties of ugba were studied. The pure cultures of these microorganisms isolated from (ugba) sample produced by... Continue Reading

    ABSTRACT This project was done to extract and characterize bean oil according to their particle sizes. The experiment was carried out using scent bean (i.e. ‘Ozaki’, ‘Ijilizi’or ‘Azamu’) as sample. The oils were extracted by solvent extraction /leaching extraction using n-hexane. Proximate analysis was carried out to obtain percentage... Continue Reading
