gesnerioides occurs at different parts of cowpea plants
 influencing the physiological and biological processes of the crop.
Twenty-eight isolates of rhizobia were recovered from root nodules of cowpea plants
. These isolates were designated as rhizobia on the basis of their colony characteristics, cell morphology, and inability to absorb Congo red dye.
Plant Sampling: At the end of growth five millet plants or five cowpea plants
were sampled and plant height, number of leaf per plant and some yield attributes were recorded.
The mature, 90-d-old cowpea plant
was cut off above the soil line and a 4- wk-old seedling of susceptible tomato cv.
Figure 1A presents the results obtained for plant height as a function of ECw increase in cowpea plants
treated with bovine biofertilizer.
Uarrota (2010) observed an increased vegetative growth and assimilation capacity in cowpea plants
with phosphorus addition.
Number of nodules (A) and dry weight of nodules (B) per cowpea plant
, after growth in soil under the effect of various vegetation covers
The other vegetative parts of the cowpea plant
after removal of the grain, are used as feed, forage, hay and silage for livestock.
Franken (2014): Influence of phosphorus application and arbuscular mycorrhizal inoculation on growth, foliar nitrogen mobilization and phosphorus partitioning in cowpea plants
. Mycorrhiza 24: 361-368.
As an additional measure of parasitoid activity in the field, sentinel egg masses (previously deposited on paper cards in Petri dishes) also were affixed to cowpea plants
. Sentinels were produced from adult C.
Growth and gas exchange in cowpea plants
under different managements and saline conditions.
The objective of this study was to study the influence of phosphate fertilization on the morphological and physiological components of cowpea plants
irrigated with salinized water during the vegetative and reproductive phase.
The cowpea plants
manifested varying symptoms of virus diseases during the study (Figs.
