Mean comparison revealed that the greatest millet grain yield was obtained from plant sprayed with nano-iron at concentration of 3adeg and millet sole culture equals to 1021.33 kg ha-1 and the lowest millet grain yield was obtained from non-sprayed plant and 100% millet+20% cowpea equals to 442.83 kg ha-1.The results of the experiment confirmed that nano-iron chelated was effective on intercropping of millet and cowpea, so that plant sprayed at concentration of 3adeg had greatest morphological characteristics and yield of the both crops.

We have previously reported about a soybean aqueous extract mediated synthesis of very stable copper nanoparticles; in this work we report the antibacterial activity of copper nanoparticles and copper chelated species that are an intermediate step between ion copper and copper nanoparticles [19].
With a 24hr urine, we cannot safely say what we chelated. Did we chelate metals that had been deposited in organ systems or did we bind metals that we ingested through food, water, medicine or that we inhaled at the workplace, on busy streets?
