Farming households’ nutrition, health and income are important for rural/agricultural development and poverty alleviation. This article addresses the basic research question, how does nutritional status influence the general physical health and income of agricultural households? Better still, what is the synergy between agricultural.Households’ nut...
The presence of mycotoxins in staple food can have adverse effect that result in ill health and associated socio-economic losses. Mycotoxins are naturally occurring toxins produced by certain fungi and can be found in staple food plants such as ginger. Ginger is a renowned medicinal plant that is extensively used for cooking and healing. However, t...
The community of microbes in the rhizosphere region is diverse and contributes significantly to plant growth and crop production. Being an important staple and economic crop, the maize rhizosphere microbiota has been studied in the past using culture-dependent techniques. However, these limited culturing methods often do not help in understanding t...
This study presents the functional diversities of microbes in maize rhizosphere and the contribution of environmental variables to these
Several processes which occur in the rhizosphere make it a vital region in plant development. However, studies that examine rhizosphere microbiomes and their functional potentials remain scarce. Shotgun metagenomics was employed here to evaluate the functional potentials of the maize rhizosphere microbiome of farms in two South African provinces. C...
The role of the rhizosphere microbiome remain crucial to human existence and can therefore not be over-looked, particularly with respect to plant growth, development and yield. The rhizosphere is the ‘home’ for several genes, some of which are responsible for the various trait and features exhibited by plants. Numerous microbes have been identified...
This dataset determined the effects of aflatoxins (B1, B2, G1 and G2) and Ochratoxin A extracted from ginger collected purposively from different retails in Mafikeng, North West province of South Africa, on the Human Gastric Smooth Muscle Cells. Hundred samples of ginger were collected and utilized for this purpose and the above mentioned toxins we...
Mycotoxin contamination is a global phenomenon and causes a wide array of negative effects and other complications. This study focused on commonly found mycotoxins in Africa and the possible means of prevention or reduction of their contaminating effects. Mycotoxins are secondary metabolites of mold and fungi; they are generally toxic to living org...
The use of various medicinal plants in the treatment and prevention of various ailments especially in developing countries of the world cannot be overlooked. Among these medicinal plants is Mangifera indica linn. whose effect on reproductive parameters of male Wistar rats was studied in this research. Adult male wistar rats used in the study were w...
