Preliminary Effect of Centrifugal Force on Germination and Early Growth of Maize (Zea mays L.)
Barka Mshelmbula; Gbenga Akomolafe. 2019. Transactions on Science and Technology - in press, October 2019.
Abstract This study aimed to investigate the effect of centrifugal force on the growth of maize, an important cereal crop in Nigeria. The maize seeds were subjected to centrifugation for three revolutions (1000g, 5000g, and 10000g) for 2, 4 and 6 hours. The seeds were planted and observed for germination and early growth for seven days. Results revealed that seeds treated with 1000g centrifugal force for 4hrs had the highest germination percentage (70%), while 50% of the control seeds germinated at the end of the 7th day. The radicle length in the 10,000g/2hrs treatment was also the highest (24 cm). However, the highest shoot length was observed in the control plants. This showed that though centrifugal force triggered a rapid and higher germination rate in the treated maize plants, it still did not result in higher shoot length in those plants. The experiment should be extended until the yield or maturity stage in order to have more profound observation on this centrifugal force effect on the maize plants. View article

About Article in Press
Article in press is peer reviewed and accepted articles that are not yet assigned to volumes and issues. When the final article is assigned to an issue of the journal, the "Article in Press" version will be removed and will appear in the associated journal issue.

Journal's Impact Factor Records
Our Impact Factor (IF) is calculated according to the standard formula published by Clarivate Analytics (previously ISI). Below is an example for calculation of 2016 IF.

A = 6 citations (number of times articles published in 2014 and 2015, cited in 2016).
B = 20 articles (total number of articles published in 2014 and 2015).
A/B = 0.300 (IF for 2016).

IF for subsequent years were calculated using similar method and the value is announced in July of the relevant year. The journal was started in 2014.

NOTE: Raw data used in this calculation can be accessed from the journal’s citation records by Google Scholar

IF for 2018
A = 64 citations
B = 141 articles
IF for 2017 = 0.454
H-Index = 6
= 1
IF for 2017
A = 36 citations
B = 90 articles
IF for 2017 = 0.400
H-Index = 4
= 0
IF for 2016
A = 6 citations
B = 20 articles
IF for 2016 = 0.300
H-Index = 2
= 0
