Soybean-maize intercropping on yield and system productivity in Makurdi, Central Nigeria
Field experiments were conducted from July to November, during 2011 and 2012 cropping seasons at the Research Farm, University of Agriculture, Makurdi, Nigeria, to evaluate soybean-maize intercropping on yield and system productivity. Sole soybean, sole maize and the intercrop of soybean and maize constituted the treatments, which were laid out in a randomized complete block design with four replications. Results of study showed that intercropping soybean with maize significantly (P≤0.05) reduced soybean yield by 43.8 % and 55.6 % respectively, in 2011 and 2012. However, maize yield was not significantly (P≤0.05) affected when intercropped with soybean. Total intercrop yield was greater than the sole crop yields. Vol. 2 | No. 4 | 2013 Full Text

Investigation physialogical Characteristics of Ricinus Communis (L.) and Brassica juncea (L.) in cadmium contaminated soil
We have previously reported that Ricinus communis (castor) is more tolerant to soil cadmium (Cd) and more efficient for Cd phytoremediation than Brassica juncea (Indian mustard). This expriment was performed to Investigation physialogical and biochemical characteristics of Ricinus Communis (L.) and Brassica juncea (L.) in cadmium contaminated soil. Castor plants showed stronger self- protection ability in form of proline bioaccumulation (r2= 0.949) than Indian mustard (r2= 0.932), Proline accumulation increased by 2.6 fold in B. juncea and 17.7 fold in R. communis on 90 DAS applied in cadmium contaminated soil.

The Nexus between Agriculture, Food Security and Climate Change in Ethiopia
This paper focuses mainly on assessing the food security-agriculture-climate change nexus and provides multidisciplinary scientific assessment and recommendations for sustainable agro ecological solutions in the quest of humanity to sustainable development. While agriculture tend to support the overwhelming majority of the population in every part of Africa in general and in Ethiopia in particular, climate change in itself will very likely affect four key dimensions of the food security including availability, accessibility, utilization and sustainability of the food, due to close linkage between food and water security and climate change. The impacts of climate change and increases in climate variability on agricultural systems and natural-resource-dependent households, as well as on food security ... Vol. 4 | No. 2 | 2015 Full Text

The effect of sustainable land management (SLM) to ensure food security; local evidences from Tehuledere Woreda, Anrs, Northern Ethiopia
Now a days, land degradation has emerged as a significant threat to the promotion of green economy, wellbeing of the ecology and ensuring food security. To counteract such a problem, Scaling up SLM technologies is a drastic solution. It is with this grand theme that this study was conducted in Tehuledere Woreda in three surrounding districts (Amumo, Kundimeda and Messal) taking the vulnerability of the area in to consideration. It shade light at identifying the factors hindering the adoption of SLM technologies and, the role of SLM technologies to ensure food security, and assessing the causes of food security in the context of SLM in the study area. The data used were obtained from both primary and secondary sources. The primary sources include structured questionnaire survey and focus group discussion methods. A total of 193 households were interviewed and their responses were interpreted. Scientific reports and conference proceedings were used to support the primary data. Descriptive statistics method was used for analyzing among farm land size, household, topography, erosion status and the adoption of soil and water conservation practices.
