Effect of domestic wastes on the germination of maize and cowpea seeds



Effect of domestic wastes on the germination of maize and cowpea seeds



Journal of Phytological Research 13(2): 191-194



The effects of processed wastes (cow's whey, pawpaw peel and orange residue, and cow dung) on seed germination, enzyme activity and composition of maize Ganga Safed 2 and cowpea Pusa Falguni were studied. The seeds were presoaked in the aforementioned wastes for 18 h before sowing. The germination of seeds treated with processed wastes was higher than that of the control, and was more pronounced in maize than in cowpea.
