Integrated Management of Pests and Diseases of Vegetable Crops Grown in Zoba-Anseba, Eritrea | Book Publisher International

Eritrea is located in the northeastern part of Africa along the Red sea to the east, Sudan to the west north, Ethiopia to the south and Djibouti at the extreme south-eastern tip. The overall size of the country is about 125,000 square km and the coastline is around 1,000km. Eritrea is a country with a complex series of landscape and climatic features, which give to a wide variety of agro-ecological zones.

Climate in Eritrea range: Eritrea is a country with a complex series of landscape and climatic features, which give to a wide variety of agro-ecological zones.

Land use about 3.6 percent of the total land area in Eritrea is presently cultivated. Most of this is found in the highlands where population density per cultivated area is very high and localized scarcity of arable land occurs. Meanwhile large tracts of land, mostly in the lowland areas remain under utilized, which is a natural resource base for agricultural development. According to the Government of Eritrea 1996, Potential irrigated land is 600,000 hectares (4.92%) of total 12,189,000 hectares, whereas the Potential rainfed land is 1,050,000 hectares (8.61%).

This country includes, politically, six regions called zobas. Each zoba divided into sub zobas. Hamelmalo Sub zone is surrounded by chain of steep and sloppy hills and mountains. Most of the agricultural lands are in the valley areas and or on either side of the ‘Anseba River’. The lands on either side of the river banks are occupied by fruits and vegetables. Hagaz sub zone is suited west of Keren in an area of 105,875km2. Adi-Tekeliezan is located on the way Keren-Asmara. In this sub-zoba 171.5 hectares area is cultivated under different vegetable crops (Ministry of Agriculture, 2012).

Empowerment and Leader Member Exchange towards Organizational Citizenship Behavior Readiness among Government Workforce in Malaysia | Book Publisher International

  State agencies are among the most significant entities that represent the public's needs, and their programmes are essential to a state's and the nation's economic growth and development. State agencies have been rife by public concerns for years, as demonstrated by the Public Complaints Bureau, as problems of inefficiency in service quality and delivery have yet to meet the public's standards. With the support of 15 employees from state agencies on Malaysia's east coast, this study aims to achieve three targets. The first and second objectives are to investigate the ties between leader-member exchange (LMX) and OCB empowerment. The final aim is to define the most significant factors that affect OCB willingness. A total of 288 people took part in the survey, which was conducted using a cluster sampling process. The survey items had achieved the necessary reliability, according to the pilot test results, and some sub-dimensions were renamed after factor analysis.

Re-asserting Cultural Perspectives: Old People and New Ideas in Bole Butake’s Lake God and The Survivors and Sankie Maimo’s Succession in Sarkov | Chapter 10 | Perspectives of Arts and Social Studies Vol. 2

African cultures have undergone transformations from the colonial period to the present, often to the detriment of its cultural evolution and within the larger global community. As it were, colonial education subordinated African communalism and created in its place an anti-African spirit evident in the assimilation of western values. This did not only end up in a kind of cultural betrayal, but also posed as a serious threat to the dignity and identity of the people. Those who fall prey to this kind of cultural imperialism are the young people who are often irrationally carried away by western fashion and modes that they tend to neglect and/or forget their cultural ways of life as they join the race of “progress.” This situation has given rise to a conscious effort by creative writers to re-assert and protect African values while at the same time liberating themselves from the longstanding western effort at suppressing, controlling and dominating their thoughts particularly through n

The Utilization of Agro-Waste: A Nanobiotechnology Point of View | Chapter 10 | Recent Advances in Biological Research Vol. 5

Aims: To review the utilization of agro-waste in the eco-friendly synthesis of nanoparticles and their biomedical, catalytic and industrial applications. Study Design: A review. Place and Duration of Study: This review was carried out in the interim of three weeks exploiting all relevant data, literature and publications where necessary. Methodology: Profound gathering of literatures/publications and reviews were employed with all carefulness and professional courtesy; enough useful information were gathered over time. The introduction emphasizes the dawn of science and technology, when great ideas were still latent later leading to the advent of history changing innovations like the completion of human genome and then the birth of nanotechnology. Although, nanotechnology had been known decades been popularized by Richard Feynman in his talks in the year 1959; and in this present dispensation, nanotechnology has been a solution to many intricate challenges/ t
