ABSTRACT A comparative study was conducted among organic waste materials namely coconut fiber, hair, sawdust and woodchips as crude oil absorbents. Twenty grams of each of these materials were wrapped in a pouch and submerged into two set-ups, Set-up A: Pure Crude Oil and Set-up B: Crude Oil with seawater, for an hour. Amount of oil absorbed was... Continue Reading


ABSTRACT Flooding has been described as one of the most important environmental factors determining the distribution of salt marsh plants. We studied the impact of five water levels on the germination and establishment of the invasive cord-grass spartina deniflora. Plant house experiment was carried out to determine the effects of time and depth... Continue Reading


ABSTRACT The microbiological and organic pollutants characteristics of umuosoko stream in ikwuano local government area, Enugu state, Nigeria were carried out. Twenty water samples were collected from four different parts of the river.  The pour plate technique was employed for the isolation of micro-organisms. Colonial morphology, Gram staining...

The study aimed at the design, construction and performance evaluation of a model domestic wastewater treatment plant was carried out. The treatment unit was a Waste Stabilization Pond (WSP) comprised of one facultative pond, three maturation ponds, and a contact filtration unit, all in series. The effluent of the WSP, after filtration through... Continue Reading


ABSTRACT    The consumptive use of water assures all year round production of groundnut prone to the vagaries of weather and climate. This brought about the need to supply moisture that is naturally available through rainfall. The successful design of any irrigation system requires the knowledge of the consumptive use of water by the crop under... Continue Reading


ABSTRACT  The motorized cassava peeling machine is a type of cassava peeling method that is adopted to reduce drudgery. In cassava peeling operations. This method, unlike the manual peeling method which consumes a lot of human power with subsequent low output produces or peels a large amount of cassava tubers within a small specific of time and...

Equipment development in Ghana to harvest oranges have over the years focused on simple units such as Garden tool, basket style picker etc. and common methods of harvesting oranges in Ghana are the use of manual branch shaking, manual pull with the hook stick. The effects leads to: Infestation of a bacteria called Alicyclobacillus when the fruits... Continue Reading


ABSTRACT In a study at KNUST weather station, the crop co-efficient values at initial, development, mid-season, and late season stages of ABONTEM MAIZE (hybrid variety) were determined as 0.42, 0.98, 1.05, and 0.32, respectively. These locally determined values of ABONTEM hybrid maize compared favourably with those recommended by FAO. The... Continue Reading


ABSTRACT Palm Oil processing yield a considerable quantity of palm kernel shell (PKS) and mesocarp fruit fiber (MFF). This has been predominantly used as fuel through direct combustion which is inefficient and polluting. Better grade fuel could be derived through torrefaction. The objectives of the work therefore was to determine the optimum... Continue Reading


ABSTRACT At the event of soil erosion, rain splash erosion supplies materials for subsequent transportation and entrainment. The influence of rainfall duration on splash produced from a loamy sand soil in Camp area of Abeokuta, Ogun State was studied in the laboratory using a laboratory rainfall simulator. The study area is always subject to... Continue Reading


ABSTRACT A prototype of hydraulically operated coconut oil extractor was designed and fabricated. The machine can be used for other oil-bearing seeds such as groundnut and palm kernel. The machine is made up of a plunger, ram disc, expression chamber, and electric heater. The extractor can process 10kg coconut per hour. An efficiency of 15% was... Continue Reading


ABSTRACT Erodibility of UNAAB soil series for nine plots behind the female hostel ( i.e. plot A – I) using regression equation were determined by evaluating first organic matter content, using the Walky Blanks method, the particle size analysis, permeability test, bulk density and chemical properties of the soil such as Sodium, Cation... Continue Reading


ABSTRACT A 1.05 cubic metre capacity storage facility which is to increase the shelf life of stored vegetables as designed fabricated and tested. The equipment operates on the principle of evaporative cooling and increasing the relative humidity of the interior of the equipment. The door and the back wall were of particle board of 12mm thickness... Continue Reading


The effect of magnetic treatment of water on the growth, yield and germination of maize seed has a positive impact in Agricultural crop production... Continue Reading


ABSTRACT Maize, known in many English-speaking countries as corn, is a grain domesticated by indigenous people in prehistoric times. The Aztecs and Mayans cultivated it in numerous varieties throughout central and southern Mexico, to cook or grind in a process called nixtamalization. The crop spread throughout America and later around the 1250 BC... Continue Reading


ABSTRACT  The microbiological and organic pollutants characteristics of Owena dam in Ifedore local  government  area  of  Ondo-state,  Nigeria  was  carried  out,  nine  water  samples  were collected from three different parts of the downstream side, which include; around the waste disposal  site,  community  settlement  and ...

The increase of salinity in soil and water bodies which simultaneously declines the productivity of agriculture is of great concern to the Nigerian Federation which holds agriculture as a major means of survival for its economy. Thus, the proper monitoring,use and management of soil and water bodies is a sure way to proffer solutions to food... Continue Reading


Abstract Sediments resulting from soil erosion are the major non-point source pollutant of surface waters in agricultural watersheds. Annualized Agricultural Non-Point Source Pollution Model (AnnAGNPS) is a computer-based watershed model that predicts non-point source pollutants and runoff loadings within agricultural watersheds. AnnAGNPS v5.2 was... Continue Reading


ABSTRACT The single wheel driven boom sprayer was developed, fabricated and evaluated for its performance at the department of Agricultural and Bio-environmental engineering workshop, Kwara state polytechnic, Ilorin. The spraying performance was carried out at spraying height of 0.5m, 0.6m and 0.7m respectively. The theoretical  field capacity... Continue Reading


ABSTRACT Shelling of groundnut pods (Arachis hypegea) by hand is tedious, laborious and unhygienic with low efficiencies. As a result farmer get low income due to amount of broken kernels and a lot of time is lost in the tedious shelling operation. To overcome this problem, pertinent parameters that influence shelling efficiency of pedal operated... Continue Reading
