    Pre-harvest Curing: Effects on Skin Adhesion, Chemical Composition and Shelf-life of Sweetpotato Roots under Tropical Conditions

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: East African Agricultural and Forestry Journal
    Excoriation (skinning injury) is a serious post-harvest problem for sweetpotato roots. In industrialized countries, sweetpotatoes are exposed to post-harvest curing to facilitate skin toughening and wound healing. However, in developing regions, such a practice is barely undertaken. Pre-harvest curing (PHC),...
  2. Strategies and Technologies for Camel Milk Preservation and Utilization of Non-Marketed Milk in Arid and Semi-Arid Areas

    Strategies and Technologies for Camel Milk Preservation and Utilization of Non-Marketed Milk in Arid and Semi-Arid Areas

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: East African Agricultural and Forestry Journal
    This study determined the seasonal fluctuations in camel milk yield, consumption, spoilage and spillages, and explored its forms of consumption and the acceptability of camel milk powder in Isiolo County, Kenya. In addition, the utilization of non-marketed milk, preservation technologies,...
  3. The possibility of using irrigated pastures for the rehabilitation of denuded grazing areas in the Rhodesian lowveld

    The possibility of using irrigated pastures for the rehabilitation of denuded grazing areas in the Rhodesian lowveld

    Some 3½ million acres of dry savannah in Southern Matabeleland are in an advanced stage of deterioration. The major agricultural economy at present is livestock production based on unrestricted and uncontrolled utilization of the natural sweetveld of which the area...
  4. Deconstruction and complexity: a critical economy

    Deconstruction and complexity: a critical economy

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Philosophy
    In this paper we argue for the contribution that deconstruction can make towards an understanding of complex systems. We begin with a description of what we mean by complexity and how Derrida's thought illustrates a sensitivity towards the problems we...

  7. Waring's Problem Restricted by a System of Sum of Digits Congruences

    Waring's Problem Restricted by a System of Sum of Digits Congruences

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Quaestiones Mathematicae
    The aim of the present paper is to generalize earlier work by Thuswaldner and Tichy on Waring's problem with digital restrictions to systems of digital restrictions. Let sq (n) be the q-adic sum of digits function and let d, s,...

    SOME REMARKS AID PROBLEMS CONCERNING THE GEOGRAPHY OF FANO 4-FOLDS OF INDEX AND PICARDNUMBER ONE

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Quaestiones Mathematicae
    Let V be a Fano 4-fold of index one and Picardnumber one, i.e. a 4-dimensional smooth variety such that the anticanonical divisor—K V is ample and generates Div(V). We consider problems concerning the “geography” of these manifolds: for which...
