Although the tropical environment is favorable for its growth, specific climatic conditions and other variables influence tomato plant growth. In addition to these environmental circumstances and natural disasters, plant disease is a severe agricultural production issue that results in economic loss. Therefore, early illness detection can provide better outcomes than current detection algorithms. As a result, deep learning approaches based on computer vision might be used to detect diseases early. This study thoroughly examines the disease categorization and detection strategies used to identify tomato leaf diseases. The pros and limitations of the approaches provided are also discussed in this study. Finally, employing hybrid deep-learning architecture, this research provides an early disease detection approach for detecting tomato leaf disease.</p> 2022-06-21T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Niharika Saxena, Dr. Neha Sharma DEVELOPMENT OF SOLAR HEAT CONCENTRATION BOX DRYER AND LM 35 SENSOR AS TEMPERATURE MEASURING DEVICE 2022-06-28T03:50:04+00:00 Edafewhuotu Umukoro O. Alebu G.O Okocha I. F. Esekhaigbe <p>The solar heat concentration box is a system which convert the solar energy to heat energy in a closed system for farmers to dry their farm produce. The system uses solar collector to harness energy from the Sun and concentrate it on a drying chamber to remove moisture from plantain, tomatoes, yam and pepper harvested from the farm. The system have three compartments system. Firstly, heat chamber. The heat chamber is made up of a solar glass collector, reflector foil and a rectangular wooden box. This chamber converts the Sun energy to heat energy. It is mounted at angle of 60o to the drying chamber. Secondly, the drying chamber. The drying chamber comprises of a cuboids, tray and isolating material. This is the chamber where the farm produce is laid and removal of moisture takes place. Thirdly, an electronic system which is made up of LM 35 sensor is used to convert the heat distribution inside the drying chamber to temperature. The LM 35 is interface with an Ardiuno UNO microcontroller. The microcontroller converts the analog signal output generated from the sensor to a digital output signal which is been display on visual system. The electronic device will enable farmers measure the temperature of the drying chamber at a particular time or period of the day. The system will enable farmers to dry perishable farm produce which is seasonal. This will reduce food shortage and increase in the cost of such seasonal and perishable farm produce during harvest and off-season.</p> 2022-06-27T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Edafewhuotu Umukoro, Alebu, O., Okocha, G.O, Esekhaigbe, I. F. DUAL MILITARY SOCIOLOGICAL ADVANTAGES TO CONFLICT WITH LIFESTYLE 2022-06-30T03:52:16+00:00 Md. Majidul Haque Bhuiyan <p>Bangladesh armed forces is a well known organization for its professionalism. Keeping forces goal 2030 in mind and to keep pace with the developed forces, Bangladesh armed forces is also upgrading itself in regards to men and equipments. As a part of this process, Bangladesh armed forces started inclusion of female officers since Jan 2000. Female officers are now getting involved in various operational and administrative activities in the units or bases along with their male colleagues. At the same time, many of the female officers are getting married with male officers, which gives them some sociological advantages. On the other hand, some challenges have also come up in dual military couples' life. The number of dual military couples are increasing day by day. Thereby, the challenges of dual military couples have become an organizational matter to address.</p> 2022-06-29T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Md. Majidul Haque Bhuiyan MILITARY FAMILIES SOCIETY TO ADAPT CHILD WITH LEADERSHIP QUALITY WITH PSYCHOLOGICAL AND PHYSICAL DEVELOPMENT 2022-06-30T03:52:08+00:00 Md. Majidul Haque Bhuiyan <p>Today’s Children’s are the leaders of future. To become a leader, balanced quality care process is in paramount requirement for children in a family. Caring of children has various dimensions like physical growth, mental growth etcetera. The ultimate aim is to become a good leader. As a requirement all families do care their children to become a good leader. Where Military families were prominent in the race. Military families have norms and traditions which leads the children to grow up. Military environment had also a significant role in children’s growing process. After the birth of Bangladesh children of military family led the society in all sector namely Government job, social affairs, society development, nation building even in international forum. Obviously business sector was not untouched after nineteen eighties nationally and internationally. The reason of doing well in all sector was, proper molding of military children’s as a leader. Even currently most of the sector has quality leaders, who have military background but not leading as it was in early Eighties and Nineties. Being a developing countries Bangladesh is in need of quality leaders.</p> 2022-06-29T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Md. Majidul Haque Bhuiyan ANALYSIS OF COMPARISON OF CERAMIC FLOOR INSTALLATION PRODUCTIVITY AND WAGE COST BASED ON LABOR COMPOSITION 2022-06-30T03:52:00+00:00 Dwi Sri Wiyanti Taufik Dwi Laksono <p>Completion time of construction project that consist of many work items should not exceeds the given time requirement and the cost should not exceeds the planned budget. This study analyzed a work item that is floor ceramic installation by acquiring the comparison of labor productivity and the comparison of wage cost based on different labor compositions. Out of the three (3) studied labor compositions in floor ceramic installation, the composition that consist of 2(two) masons and 2(two) journeymen produces the highest productivity that is 1,73 m2 and based on the productivity the incurred wage cost, composition 2(two) is the cheapest with IDR. 9.046,-/m2.</p> 2022-06-29T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Dwi Sri Wiyanti, Taufik Dwi Laksono EFFECTS OF WOOD ASH ON GEOTECHNICAL PROPERTIES OF LATERITIC SOILS 2022-07-02T03:52:40+00:00 Aboluwarin Tobi Ologun S Esuabanga W.E Osuorji G.C <p>Biochar can be derived from pyrolysis of agricultural waste, wood waste (saw dust), logging residues and other biological waste. Biochar can be use to improve the quality of construction and engineering materials. The study deals with the effect of biochar (wood ash) on geotechnical properties of lateritic soils, and it is to investigate the effect of wood ash on the geotechnical properties of lateritic soils. For these purpose, soil samples that were gotten from borrow pit were made use of and blended with available biochar which is used as a stabilizing agent. This was done at different percentages which include (0%, 3%,5%, 10%,15% and 20%,). The biochar was sieved with 125 micrometer sieve and were after blended with the soil samples. The compaction test, consistency limit test, the unconfined compressive strength test were carried out on the samples. It was discovered that the OMC of the blended samples increases as the percentages of the biochar that was used to blend the samples increases, also the MDD on the contrary decreases. The unconfined compressive strength test were conducted on all the samples (0%,3%,5%,10%,15% and 20%). It was also discovered that the compressive strength of soil samples increases with increase in the addition of biochar of the samples having its peak at 10%. Then reduction in compressive strength was experienced in between 11% to 20% addition of biochar to the soil sample. Conclusively, the results show that biochar can be use as stabilizing material when added to lateritic soil samples. But more addition of it at a particular stage may lead to the reduction in the compressive strength of the sample in which the sample may be weak and brittle. The size of the biochar if not properly crushed and sieved may not yield a desired result.</p> 2022-07-01T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Aboluwarin, Tobi, Ologun S, Esuabanga, W.E, Osuorji, G.C
