  Bobrisky is an agent of darkness- Clergyman Apostle Omashola
Posted by: FarmKing - Yesterday, 09:44 PM - Forum: Religion - No Replies

Nigerian pastor, Chris Omashola has come out to condemn cross dresser, Bobrisky

- According to the Zionwealth church pastor, the cross dresser is an agent of darkness

- Omashola further stated that he will rot in hell if he does not repent of his sins
It appears pastor of Zionwealth church in Lekki, Lagos, Chris Omashola, is on assignment to take the gospel to Nigerian celebrities in every way possible and his target this time around is cross dresser, Bobrisky.

He recently took to the Twitter platform to condemn the self-acclaimed African barbie. Tagging him an agent of darkness, he stated that if Bobrisky does not repent, he won't only rot in jail but in hell fire as well.

He tweeted: "Bobrisky should be stopped from inspiring and recruiting more SEXUALITY IMBECILES, Like #JamesBrown and their likes.This demonic rage must stop, it’s not welcomed and will never be in this side of the world. Every sane Nigerian should lend their voice of support.

God said Those supporting and sponsoring #Bobrisky are cursed and will give birth to more #BOBRISKY’s in Jesus Name if they don’t repent. He is Evil and poses a huge threat to our collective societal moral values. He should be stop from inspiring more of his kind. #JesusIsLord

#BOBRISKY is an Agent of Darkness, on a demonic mission to spread d Gospel Of Transgenderism across African.His demonic agender is driving GAYISM acceptability in Africa against our culture. BOBRISKY should repent now or He'll not only rot in Jail, He'll rot in Hell. #JesusIsLord"

I have seen some insecticide sellers claiming that they have insecticides that can repel or even kill snakes. If it were scorpions I will believe them since scorpions are like insects. How true is this myth.

  Tomatoes will soon be resistant to whitefly-2012
Posted by: FarmTech - 11-03-2019, 04:35 PM - Forum: Crops & Plantation Farming - Replies (1)

A PhD student, Syarifin Firdaus, have discovered two genes in tomato that gives resistance to whitefly. He discovered this after testing 53 wild members of the tomato family from different parts of the world. The effective one was a wild tomato from Galapagos Islands. By crossing these wild Galapagos tomatoes with local ones, the hybrid will have resistance against whiteflies.

The breeding companies: Enza, EastWest and Ewindo were partners in the research project. And as far as I know, EastWest seeds have presence in Nigeria.

Firdaus also looked for resistance to whitefly in chilli pepper plants. He tested 44 different peppers but it wasn't successful.

The finding was made in September 2012 but I can't find any recent advance yet. Does anyone has more info on this? Whiteflies can be very difficult to control. Worse still, they can transmit dreadful virus to plants.

  Modified Panchakavya: An Organic Solution for plants and animals?
Posted by: FarmTech - 11-03-2019, 04:28 PM - Forum: Crops & Plantation Farming - Replies (2)

In my search for organic solutions to pests and diseases, I came across Panchakavya. The following is what I got from: https://www.thehindu.com/todays-paper/tp...511534.ece.

PANCHAKAVYA IS an organic product derived from five products evolving from cow, and it has been used in Indian medicine since time immemorial. "I have modified this Panchakavya by adding a few more ingredients and the modified version has a lot of beneficial effects on a variety of crops and livestock'', said Dr. K. Natarajan, President of the Rural Community Action Centre (RCAC), a non-governmental organization, actively engaged in promoting the concepts of organic farming and bio-diesel in the rural areas of Tamil Nadu. Dr. K. Natarajan has done extensive research with his Panchakavya on various crops, animals and even earthworms. His findings have been validated by leading research institutes in the country, and he was awarded the prestigious "Srishti Sanman" by a leading developmental organization in Ahmedabad.

"The present form of Panchakavya is a single organic input, which can act as a growth-promoter and immunity booster. It is essentially a product containing:
4 kg gobar gas (biogas) slurry
1 kg fresh cow dung
3 litres of cow urine
2 litres of cow's milk
2 litres of cow's curd
1 kg cow's ghee
3 litres of sugarcane juice
12 ripe bananas
3 litres of tender coconut water and 2 litres of toddy (if available).

This will make about 20 litres of Panchakavya. The concoction is stored in a wide-mouthed earthen pot or concrete tank in open. Sufficient shade should be provided, and the contents should be stirred twice a day, both in the morning and the evening. In seven days, the modified Panchakavya will be ready, and it can be diluted before use on plants and animals," says Dr. Natarajan.

  Lemon Grass as Intercrop can help control fruit and shoot borer
Posted by: Henlus - 11-03-2019, 04:20 PM - Forum: Crops & Plantation Farming - Replies (1)

In one research, intercropping lemon grass (Cymbopogon citratus Stapf.) with eggplant (Solanum melongena L.) helped to control eggplant fruit and shoot borer (Leucinodes orbonalis Guenee) and increase yield when compared to monocropping and the use of pesticides. But with chemical control, there was less damaged by the pest.

What can you use lemon grass for? Is there ready market for it? Possible uses include drying and mixing it with livestock and poultry feed to boost productivity. There are lots of scientific papers that have confirm the health benefits of lemon grass. Selling it might be a bit tricky because many people don't value herbs. But I think that producers of herbal medicine will buy it.

  Controling Damping-off and Downy Mildew Diseases of Cucumber with Plant Extracts
Posted by: Henlus - 09-19-2019, 12:58 AM - Forum: Crops & Plantation Farming - No Replies

In an experiment conducted in southeast Nigeria, water extracts of ginger rhizomes, garlic bulbs, and neem leaves were tested to see if they can control damping-off and downy mildew diseases of cucumber. For each plant materials, 3 different concentrations of 4, 8 and 12% were tested. Tap water was used as control.

Pointe sett cucumber variety was used. Plant spacing was 50cm x 50cm on raised beds. NPK (15:15:15) fertilizer was applied at150 kg/ha using the ring method at 3 weeks after planting. Staking was done 4 weeks after planting. Harveting starts 46 days after planting at 6 days interval.

The plant extracts were prepared as follows:

Wash the plant materials separately with tap water, dry under shade, and separately crush them in a mortar with pestle. Add distilled water to each of the crushed plant material and stir for 5 minutes. Filter them separately through clean muslin clothes. Note: 4, 8 and 12% concentration simply mean 4, 8 and 12g dry plant materials in 100ml of water or 40, 80 and 120g dry plant material in 1L of water.

Cucumber seeds were treated as follows:
Soak seeds in the plant extracts for 1 hour. Drain and remove excess moisture with blotting papper, towel etc. Dry at room temperature for 2 hours before planting. The planting spots were also drenched with 20ml of the extracts.

Results: All the extracts at various concentrations significantly reduced damping off disease and increase germination rate and seedling survival.

From 4 weeks after planting, weekly sprays of the different plant extracts at all concentration tested significantly suppressed the incidence and severity of downy mildew disease. This resulted in improved growth and yield of cucumber plants when compared to control. One teaspoonful of an emulsifier (morning fresh), was added per 15L of extract. Spraying was stopped 1 week to harvest and only 4 harvests were made. But I believe better result would be gotten if spraying had continued because these plant extracts are not toxic like chemical fungicides. I just wondered why they stopped!

For control of both diseases, the most effective was ginger, followed by neem leaves and then garlic. The best concentration was 8%. Suprisingly, 4% concentrations were better than 12% concentrations against damping off. Some other research concluded that garlic extract was 50 -100% effective against downy mildew at volatile anti-microbial concenyration of 50 - 1000 ug/mL.

In terms of growth and yield, the effectiveness followed the same trend, with ginger being the best, followed by neem leaves and then garlic. Again, 8% concentration of the various extracts gave best result.
