    Abstract: Ethiopian soils deficiency in Sulfur, boron, zinc, potassium, copper, manganese and iron potentially hold back crop productivity despite continued use of N and P fertilizers as per the blanket recommendation. Hence a field experiment was initiated to investigate the response of Maize (Zea mays L.) to NPS and urea fertilizers based on soil test unde... Show More

    Abstract: Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) is a high-yielding crop with a wide range of adaptability, and it is the world's and Ethiopia's principal source of food. In Ethiopia, however, wheat productivity has increased in recent years. Due to abiotic like heat, drought, frost and others and biotic like rusts (Stem, yellow and leaf), Septoria, fusarium and other... Show More

    Abstract: Aim: Failed fertilization (FF) occurs in approximately 2–3% of ICSI cycles and is mainly due to lack of oocyte activation. The reasons of total fertilization insufficiency in ICSI applications can be listed as mitosis errors, sperm aster formation defects, sperm decondensation defects, PN formation defects and oocyte activation defects. In this stu... Show More
