  A taxonomic study based on floral features was carried out on four Nigerian species of Aloe, namely A. schweinfurthii, A. macrocarpa var major, A. keayi and A. buettneri. At anthesis, 12 floral characters of each species were investigated using the completely randomized design. The features investigated are number of flowers per reproductive shoot, pedicel length, bract length, tepal length, filament length, style length, anther length, anther width, ovary length, ovary diameter, stigma length and stigma width. Number of flowers per reproductive shoot was counted while the other characters were measured with a ruler graduated in centimeters and millimeters. Means of counts and measurements were determined, subjected to analysis of variance and separated using Duncanís Multiple Range Test. Available information provided sufficient evidence to justify the existing taxonomy of Nigerian Aloe.

  The effect of variation in soil texture on the vegetative and pod characteristics of NH47-4 variety of okra (Abelmoschus esculentus (L.) Moench was investigated in the screen house of the Department of Crop, Soil and Pest Management, Federal University of Technology, Akure, Nigeria. Three seeds of the NH47-4 okra variety were sown in each of four soil types which fall under the following textural classes: sandy-clay loam, sandy loam, clay loam and loam. The experimental design adopted is the completely randomized design in which each treatment was replicated five times. Seedlings were thinned to one plant hill per stand three weeks after sowing. Growing plants were adequately watered at an interval of three days. At the stage of flower production, the leaf length, leaf width, plant height, length of leaf stalk and tap root length were measured with a tape graduated in centimeters. Stem thickness was measured with vennier caliper and the number of leaves per stand was counted. Pods were harvested at full maturity and the pod length was measured using a tape graduated in centimeters. Pod thickness was measured with vennier caliper and the number of seeds per pod was counted. Pod weight and seed weight were taken using a weighing balance. Data pooled were subjected to analysis of variance (ANOVA) and means separated using the Least Significant Difference (LSD). All the 12 characters investigated were found to vary according to the texture of the soil.

  The effect of variation in soil texture on the phenotype of an early maturing downy mildew resistant (DMR-EST) yellow variety of maize (Zea mays L.) was investigated. The four soil types used were of different textural classes, namely clay loam, sandy loam, sandy clay and sandy-clay loam. Five plastic buckets of 5 L size were filled with each soil type, making a total of 20. The buckets were labelled appropriately and arranged in a Completely Randomized Design (CRD) in the screen house of the Cocoa Research Institute of Nigeria (CRIN), Ibadan, Nigeria. Three seeds of maize were sown in each bucket and later thinned to one plant two weeks after planting. Watering was done at an interval of three days. At the blooming stage, leaf length, leaf width, plant height and stem diameter were measured using a tape graduated in centimeters. After harvest, grain weight and grain weight per ear were determined using a weighing balance. Cob length was also measured using a tape graduated in centimeters and the number of grains per ear was counted. Data amassed were subjected to analysis of variance (ANOVA) and means separated using the Least Significant Difference (LSD). The only character that was stable across the soil types is the grain weight. All other characters varied from one soil type to the other.
