ABSTRACT


The production of potassium salt K2­SO4 from unripe plantain agricultural waste was carried out. The sample randomly sourced from canteens located in Owerri West, Imo State. From the result of analysis carried out on the peels was found to contain highest level of K 2.55 ± 1.54 mg/g. other mineral component found were Na 159 ± 1.3 mg/g, Ca 101 ± 0.95 mg/g, Mg 75 ± 0.55 mg/g, Fe 5.8 ± 0.06 mg/g, P 36 ± 1.65. The yield of potassium sulphate, the target of this work is 40.5% other associated useful bi-product were Na2SO4 25.1%, Ca2SO4 16% Mgso4 12.9%, Fe2SO4 1.0%, K2PO4 60%. These bi-products can be recommended for the use of agricultural fertilizer and allied product.

    ABSTRACT High cost of feed is a major constraint to fish farming in Nigeria. This study investigated the growth performance of African catfish (Clarias gariepinus) fed graded levels of plantain peels (PPM). PPM was used to replace maize at 0% (T1), 25%(T2), 50% (T3), 75% (T4) and 100% (T5) for 56 days level. Data collected were analyzed One-way... Continue Reading
