Effect of foliar applied simazine and ammonium nitrate on the elemental content of cowpea vigna unguiculata seeds



Effect of foliar applied simazine and ammonium nitrate on the elemental content of cowpea vigna unguiculata seeds



Journal of Food Science 50(1): 93-95, 105



The elemental concentration of K, Na, P, Ca, Fe, Mg, Cu, Zn and Mn was determined in seeds of 3 cultivars of cowpeas [V. unguiculata] treated with 0, 2000 and 4000 ppm simazine [herbicide] as a foliar spray and side dressed with 0, 30 and 60 kg/ha ammonium nitrate fertilizer. The element Ca was increased by the simazine treatment in 'Pinkeye Purple Hull' and Mn was increased by the ammonium nitrate fertilizer treatment in 'Mississippi Silver'. Significant fertilizer by simazine interactions was found with the remaining elements. Similar treatment responses in the elemental concentration were found among the 3 cultivars. The percentage recommended dietary allowances based on the individual elemental concentrations that a 100 g raw edible portion of cowpeas would supply were not significantly affected by the treatments.
