gesnerioides parasitism of host cowpea plant
, management, and control as well as S.
This frequency of fast-growing isolates was too high for cowpea plant
commonly considered to be nodulated by bacterial species of Bradyrhizobium that consist of slow-growing strains with the ability to alkalize the media .
Aside this, the use of pesticides on the cowpea plant
itself does occur.
The authors of the report also said that cassava and the little known cowpea plant
could play increasingly important roles in agriculture, as temperatures rise and people will have to adapt to new and varied menus as traditional crops struggle.
In nature, the well-studied cowpea chlorotic mottle virus turns the leaves of the cowpea plant
yellow, but it doesn't harm its host.
Subplot treatments consisted of (a) sole cowpea (20 cowpea plant
m-2); (b)sole millet (20 millet plant m-2); (c) 100% millet + 40% cowpea (20 millet plant m-2 + 8 cowpea plant
m-2); (d) 100% millet + 60% cowpea (20 millet plant m-2 + 12 cowpea plant
m-2); (e) 100% millet + 80% cowpea (20 millet plant m-2 + 16 cowpea plant
In the [F.sub.2:3] test, reproduction was assessed either by a J2 hatch from whole washed root systems of 90-d-old cowpea plants
or by growing tomato plants in the soil following the cowpea plant
and by a root-galling bioassay.
Reduction in the number of pods per cowpea plant
in response to salinity was also observed by Assis Junior et al.
metabolites investigated in this study, revealed that flavonoids, total reducing sugar and total carbon conferred resistance to M.
Adetunji (1995) points out that, even though it is not required in large quantities by the cowpea plant
, phosphorus is essential to its production due to its multiple effects on plant nutrition.
