    Abstract: In this study, three distinct and unique modes of greenhouse drying are introduced: solar, solar-exhaust gas, and exhaust gas modes of drying. The effect of drying black nightshade seeds in the three modes was studied, using germinability as a measure of quality. In solar mode, seeds were dried from a moisture content of 89.34% (db) to 7.13% (db) w... Show More

    Abstract: Know day In most parts of the world, soil acidity has become a significant problem to agricultural production; The high buildup of H+ ions relative to OH- ions in the soil solution results in the acidity of the soil. Understanding the function of biochar in reducing soil acidity and enhancing crop yield was the main goal of this review. Biochar is ... Show More
