Responses of Four Solanum Species to Seasonal Dynamics in Sokoto-Nigeria
A.A. Aliero

Abstract:
The differential responses of four Solanum species to seasonal dynamics in Sokoto geo-ecological zone of Nigeria were evaluated to exploit their potential for an-all-year-round cultivation. The plant height and number of leaves were markedly affected by the seasonal changes, while leaf length and width were insignificantly influenced (p>0.05). The effect of season on days to 50% flowering, fruit per branch, flower/branch was significantly affected (p<0.05). The number of fruit/plant was insignificantly affected by seasonal dynamics, a trend of horticultural importance that could be exploited for the cultivation of these species irrespective of the season. Correlation study showed significant positive and negative associations in some of the characters evaluated at 5 and 1% probability. The results of this study highlight the need for all-the-year-round cultivation of these species irrespective of the season.
