Use of Auxin and Source of Explants on Callus Induction of Tropical Maize

Induction of callus from explants is a critical process in regeneration, micropropagation and transformation of plants. Formation of callus from plant tissues on culture is affected by different factors. This study sought to establish the effect of genotype, source of explants and auxin concentration on callus induction from six different maize genotypes.

A comparative study on the β-Carotene content its retention in yellow and orange fleshed sweet potato flours

This study was conducted with the aim of comparing the β-carotene content, retention and the shelf life of the orange fleshed and yellow sweet potato flours. According to the results obtained during analysis of selected nutrients (carbohydrate, crude protein, crude fibre, crude fat, total ash, total reducing sugar, vitamin C and moisture content) showed that the OFSP had higher β-carotene content with difference of 99.4% and retention of 91.8% during flour production. The losses in vitamin C were observed for both varieties 4.5; 0.02% and 23; 0.1% in OFSP and YSP dried chips and flours respectively.
