Bambara groundnut (BG, Vigna subterranea) and moringa (Moringa oleifera) are underutilized crops that improve nutritional quality of diets locally. The objectives of this study were to measure the performance of both crops on a marginal soil, analyze the harvested plant parts and noodles produced from them, and to undertake taste testing and survey...

We investigated the macronutrient, selected mineral and fatty acid composition of Sacha inchi (SI) (Plukenetia volubikis L.) seeds harvested from the grounds of Crops Future, Malaysia. Macronutrient analysis was carried out on both fresh and roasted (160°C for 6 mins) SI seeds. Both fresh and roasted seeds were rich in crude fat (56.2%, 49.8%) and...

Plectranthus rotundifolius (synonym: Solenostemon rotundifolius) (black potato) is an underutilised nutrient-rich crop that has the potential to contribute to food and nutritional security. We examined the macronutrient and selected mineral content of black potato bought at a morning market located in the state of Pahang, Peninsular Malaysia. The p...

Globally, farming systems are mostly dominated by monoculture, which has the advantage of profitability at the expense of ecological systems. Recent years have witnessed an increasing momentum in global efforts to deploy sustainable agriculture practices that mimic ecological processes, with agroecology at the forefront. In addition to the ecologic...

The rhizosphere microbiome is a major determinant of plant health, which can interact with the host directly and indirectly to promote or suppress productivity. Oil palm is one of the world’s most important crops, constituting over a third of global vegetable oil production. Currently there is little understanding of the oil palm microbiome and its...

The diverse underutilised crops of Malaysia are a largely unexplored potential source of food and nutritional security. This study investigated Pouteria campechiana (Kunth) Baehni, which is considered as a rare underutilised crop found locally. The yellow pulp fruit is commonly known as canistel or "kuning telur" by the local population. The fruits...

Question
I came across these 2 equipment for soil nutrient (NPK) analysis/monitoring. And would like to find out which would give a more reliable/accurate reading.
1. Hanna Instrument HI 83325 - Multiparameter Photometer - uses an extraction method (Mehlich 3)
2. Horiba - the ion/salt Laqua set. - Direct measurement
Would also like to find out, if there are any publications with data from this 2 equipment.
