    Abstract: Striga hermonthica, an obligate root hemi-parasite, is a massive biological constraint that hinders maize (Zea mays L.) production in western part of Kenya particularly when susceptible varieties are used. Use of Imazapyr resistant hybrids coated with small doses of imazapyr herbicide offers potential for management of Striga hermonthica and increa... Show More

    Abstract: The experiment goal was the investigation of thyme (T), celery (C) and salinomycin effects on immune response, neurotransmitters related to milk production in Barki ewes. Total 72 mature ewes (2-3 years & 40±1.5 Kg BW) randomly pined equally into five groups. Group-1 was control; groups 2 & 3 received 20g/head/day T and C, respectively. Group-4 rec... Show More
