There are three descriptions of urban agriculture in advancing countries that will be proposed and notified are (1) the social contributions of urban agriculture in relation to the urban population growth; (2) the economic roles of urban agriculture and the emergence of its multi-functionality; and (3) the constraints and the risks of advancing an urban agriculture for human consumption. Urban agriculture contributes to the health and well-being of a community by lowering hunger, enhancing access to food, ameliorating nutrition, and ameliorating environmental circumstances that affect health. The capability of urban farming to continuously supply food for the urban poor, particularly in advancing nations, will based on best planning on accurate geospatial information to enable sustainable management of the practice. Urban agriculture can contribute to the following advantages such as enhanced urban food supply and food security through accelerated availability of food, particularly of fresh and perishable foods, employment and income opportunities for the urban population (involving migrants from rural areas), ameliorated household food security of the urban poor, and improved urban environment.</p> Gudisa Bereda Copyright (c) 2022 https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 http://aextj.com/index.php/aextj/article/view/309 Wed, 15 Jun 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Microthiol Disperss as Alternative Fungicide for Control of Powdery Mildew (Leveillula taurica) Disease on Tomato at Debre Zeit, Ethiopia http://aextj.com/index.php/aextj/article/view/310 <p>Tomato powdery mildew (Leveillula taurica) is a common disease of tomato crops in Ethiopia. To control the disease, application of fungicide Microthiol Disperss (Sulfur 80%) was tested under natural field condition at Debre Zeit Agricultural Research Center and the standard check Thiovet Jet 80 WP (Sulfur) on Galiea tomato variety to assess the efficacy. The rate was 2–4 kg/ha diluted with 400 L of water/ha of land. Result of experiment showed that Microthiol Disperss (Sulfur 80%) effective Powdery Mildew tomato to get good fruit quantity and qualities with no significant difference Thiovet Jet 80 WP under natural field condition. Microthiol Disperss (Sulfur 80%) has gave 16.65 t/ha of yield at a rate of 2–4 kg/ha provided comparable yield as Thiovet Jet 80 WP (Sulfur) of 12.41 t/ha with no significance difference. Therefore, Microthiol Disperss at a rate of 2–4 kg/ha is diluted with 400 L/ha of water is recommended to be used as alternative fungicide for prevention and control of Powdery Mildew integrated with other environmentally safe powdery mildew management practices on tomato cultivated depending on disease pressure, agroecology, and susceptible variety. Moreover, it also used to as preventive fungicide for powdery mildew on tomato in early occurrence of the disease.</p> Gizachew Atinafu Copyright (c) 2022 https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 http://aextj.com/index.php/aextj/article/view/310 Wed, 15 Jun 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Modern Tools and Methods for Operational Measurement of Soil Humidity in Agricultural Production to Obtain Environmentally Friendly Products in Azerbaijan http://aextj.com/index.php/aextj/article/view/311 <p>Current information about soil moisture and temperature in the agricultural production management system is necessary, first of all, for making operational decisions when developing an environmentally friendly irrigation technology for growing crops to obtain the maximum yield.</p> Prof. S.Z.

What is common for these soils is that humus penetrates deep into the soil profile and decreases very slowly along the profile. According to the results of our research, it has been proved that the amount of humus in the 20–60 cm layer of soil is 1.24–4.19%, the total amount of nitrogen is 0.070–0.238%, and the content of mineral forms of nitrogen is almost identical to the previous soils, and in some of them, there is an increase in the content of phosphorus and exchangeable potassium compared to other soils studied. The content of carbonates in these soils. Calcium predominates in the absorbed bases, which of the total replaceable cations. The amount of exchangeable sodium in the absorbed complex is small, 2.7–4.7% of the total, and the amount of replaceable magnesium is quite high. The moisture regime of mountain-gray-brown soils is mainly determined by the amount of atmospheric precipitation and the evaporation rate of soil moisture.</p> R. F.

Common to these soils is the deep penetration of humus into the soil profile and its very slow decrease down by profile. According to the results of our research, it is proved that in the soil the humus content in the 25–50 cm layer is from 2.00% to 2.12%, and the total nitrogen is from 0.112% to 176%, the content of mineral forms of nitrogen is almost identical with the previous soils, while some an increase in the content of phosphorus and exchangeable potassium relative to other studied soils. The amount of carbonates in these soils is low (CaCO3 -6.4–10.4%). The absorbed bases are dominated by calcium, which is 60.3–76.7% of the total exchangeable cations. The amount of exchangeable sodium in the absorbed complex is low, 2.7–4.7% of the total, while the content of exchangeable magnesium is quite high. The moisture regime of mountain-gray-brown soils is determined mainly by the amount of atmospheric precipitation and the course of evaporation of soil moisture.</p> Z. H.
