  The study was aimed at determining the appropriate type and level of cytokinin required to achieve shooting response in two cultivars of plantain (Oniaba and Apantu pa). Three cytokinin types, Benzylaminopurine (BAP), Kinetin and 2ip at two different concentrations (4.5 and 7.5 mg L-1) were used. The apical meristem of each cultivar was isolated using appropriate protocol for shoot tip isolation under aseptic conditions. Media supplemented with 4.5 mg L-1 BAP induced the highest number of shoots after eight weeks of culture. There was also a variation in the ability of the cytokinin types to induce shooting in both cultivars. BAP had the highest shoot induction response in both cultivars, followed by Kinetin and 2ip. Each hormone appeared to have an optimal level of concentration for maximum shooting. Oniaba responded favourably to BAP at 4.5 mg L-1 where as Apantu pa was virtually indifferent to the Kinentin types. The degree of efficiency of shooting was therefore found to be dependent on the type of hormone and the plantain cultivar.

  The research was carried out to investigate the cultivation of oyster mushroom (Pleurotus ostreatus) on different substrates. The steps involved in the cultivation were composting the substrates, bagging the substrates, sterilizing the bagged compost, spawning, incubation and cropping. The experiment was laid out in a completely randomized design with five treatments and six replications. Pinhead formation was faster (12 days), on the substrate made from grounded corn cob and the fruiting bodies formed in 27 days. The average number of fruiting bodies on the corn cob substrate was 28. Similarly, the fresh weight and dry weight of the fruiting bodies were all high for corncob substrate. These were in line with the figures of the biological efficiency which was higher for the corn cob substrate.
