Role of Microorganisms in Reducing Phytotoxicity to Plants

Evidence has suggested that for certain contaminants to be degraded, a specific consortium of microorganisms must be present within the root zone (Anderson and Walton, 1995). Microorganisms have been known to reduce the phytotoxicity of contaminants to the point where plants can grow in adverse soil conditions without showing toxicity symptoms (Raskin and Ensley, 2000). As a result, other non – phytotoxic contaminants are also degraded. Anderson and Walton (1995) have suggested that the external degradation of contaminants by microorganisms in the rhizosphere is a major factor which

Metal Threshold Level of Vetiver and Adaptive potential

Metal Threshold Level of Vetiver

The tolerance level of plants to various contaminants is a major factor that affects phytoremediation. The threshold level of C. zizanioides has been demonstrated by Truong (1999) and found to be as follows: Arsenic 0.02 – 7.5mg/L, Cadmium 0.2 – 9.0mg/L, Copper 0.5 – 8.0mg/L, Chromium 0.5 – 10.0mg/L, and Nickel 0.5 – 2.0mg/L. The removal rates for Copper ranges from 4.1 % to 36.7 %, 6.9 to 15.3 % for Zn, and 6.9 to 57 % for Pb (Chen, Shiyab, Han, Monts, and Waggoner, 2009).

Advantages and Disadvantages of Phytoremediation

Advantages of Phytoremediation

The advantages of phytoremediation cannot be overemphasized. The cost of planting and maintenance is relatively low when compared to other cleanup options. The establishment of self - sustainable ecosystems and the improvement of aquatic and terrestrial habitats are some of the benefits (Dwyer, 1997). The extracted contaminant can be a resource (phytomining) for example, Bañuelos, Ajwa, Terry, and Downey (1997) reported that plant biomass containing essential nutrients such as Selenium may be used as feed for livestock. Contaminants could be transformed to less - toxic forms,

Effect of Vetiver on Crude oil Polluted Water

The following results were obtained when 5 % crude oil water was treated with C. zizanioides: pH was relatively unchanged in day 2 but slightly reduced (12 %) in day 6. BOD, COD, PO43-, CN-, Pb, Fe and Mn were continuously reduced from day 2 (Figure 12) until day 6, with an average of 77 %, 79 %, 70 %, 83 %, 76 %, 83 % and 55 % respectively. Fe was below detectable limits in day 4 and 6.
When treated with C. nigritanus, the following observations

Taxonomy and Description of Vetiver

Vetiver (Chrysopogon spp) belongs to the family Poaceae, subfamily Panicoideae, tribe Andropogonae and subtribe Sorghinae (APG, 2003; Marcacci, 2004). The genus Chrysopogon is related to Sorghum (Hengchaovanich, 1999). The African indigenous Vetiver (C. nigritanus) is a tall tufted perennial grass, about 150 – 300 cm in length. Its inflorescence is a large panicle, (up to 40 cm long) with 8 – 10 whorls made up of 15 slender branches and sessile linear-lanceolate spikelets. It grows on river banks, occasionally on roadsides with flowers arranged in panicles (Goudiaby and Diatt, 2003).

The use of Vetiver in the clean-up of major wastewater sources


Background of Study

Wastewater has been a major source of contamination since the beginning of the industrial age. Globally, two million tons of sewage, industrial and agricultural toxic waste is discharged into the world’s waterways and at least 1.8 million children under five years die every year, or one in every 20 seconds from water related

How to get your Bank Approve your Loan one Time

An important and viable avenue for businesses to generate capital/funds is via bank loans. Today in Nigeria, the measures for granting loans have been tightened due to the recession. So, it is naturally difficult to get loans from banks if you are not as big as  Dangote or Otedola.

This doesn’t mean banks don’t grant loans at all. You just need to satisfy their requirements. Besides this, there are other reasons why your bank loan application may be denied.

Backup your smartphone

Phones can automatically back up your data as far as they are connected to the internet. However, you should still check to ensure that you backup all your pictures, videos, and other important files before you sell your phone. With the backup, you can access your data whenever you want. In addition, don’t forget to remove your SD card.

Delete personal information

After backing up your device, do not forget to delete your personal information from your phone. Sensitive information like your ATM card details, contact numbers and emails should be removed. This will prevent whoever is buying your smartphone from using the information against you or to defraud Friends and family.

Find out the value

The street value for different phones depends on the brand. So, before you sell it, you should find out the street value so that you don’t sell it at a giveaway price. This is very important if you want to get the best price.

Where do you want to sell your phone?

Do you want to sell your phone online or offline? The most likely offline platform to sell your phone is computer village in Ikeja where you will never get a good bargain. There are also quite a number of online platforms where you can also sell it. So, you have to weigh your options.

Clean the device

A clean and neat smartphone is likely to be bought quicker than an ugly looking one. You can use white spirit to softly clean or wipe the phone.

Decide what to do with the accessories

In Nigeria, fairly used phones are never sold with accessories. But if you want more money, you may include chargers, earphones, and cases. So, decide on what to do with the accessories.

Things to Watch out on Business Website

Organisational Website

Things to Watch out on Business Website

Businesses today now consider owning a website a necessity rather than a luxury. This is because they recognize the impact an effective website will have, not only, on their businesses but also publicity. This said, there are some business websites that never attract traffic let alone customers. This may be due to some avoidable mistakes. What are these mistakes?

It is not mobile friendly

What is the essence of a website if it is not mobile friendly? Mobile phones that are internet savvy are widely used now. It is, therefore, highly possible that mobile users will spend more time on their phones. In addition to this, mobile friendly websites are responsive and the conversion rate is very high. In order to ensure that your website is mobile friendly, use a responsive design, keep your layout simple and test it using tools like Google’s Search Console Mobile-Friendly Test.

Lacks basic information

Your website should contain important and valuable information or content that will help your customers when they have issues. It should have a list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) that provides practical solutions to some of the problems your customers are likely to have. Also, contact numbers on the website must be available. If it lacks this basic information, no one will visit your website.

Takes forever to load

Customers always want to perform an online transaction as fast as possible. If your website is too slow, you will lose customers. This is because there are other online platforms they can patronize. So, ensure that your website is fast. You can test the speed of your website with tools like Pingdom and GTmetrix.

No clear call-to-action

The secondary reason for owning a website is to convert customer visits to sales. This is why your website must have a clear call-to-action. Give your website visitors clear instructions by creating a conspicuous call-to-action. For example, sign up for free and get a certain % off your first hotel booking in Lagos.

You do not guide users to different pages

Many businesses restrict their traffic to their website’s homepage rather than sending the customer to the actual page they want. This may be due to the fact that they don’t consider it relevant. But, the fact is that the homepage is not as important to overall web traffic as the other pages besides the homepage.
