    Abstract: Amaranthus hybridus L. is an important vegetable in Nigeria, grown mainly for its highly nutritious leaves. In a bid to explore the possibility of increasing the infra-specific diversity of the crop, we induced three accessions of A. hybridus from Anambra State, Nigeria with x-ray particles using various concentration levels. The experimental layou... Show More

    Abstract: Solanum macrocarpon is an important vegetable native to Africa, with leaves and fruits. It is a potential source of income and nutrients that contribute to the nutritional balance of the local population's food intake. However, S. macrocarpon did not attract the interest of researchers in relation to other Solanum species. Indeed, knowledge of the ... Show More
