Abstract

The capacity of priming agents on the management of antinutritional factors in the leaf of Cucurbita maxima (duchesne Linn) winter squash was evaluated using hydro-prime agent (Biomagnetic treated water) and Bioprime agents (Biochar and Bacillus licheniformis with control at Rivers State University Teaching and research farm Port Harcourt, the leaf of Cucurbita maxima primed plant was harvested and further processed for the reduction of antinutritional factors using standard methods. The harvested data was subjected to ANOVA of variance-(DUNNETT and Turkey means comparison), Microsoft test and Statistical analysis system-john Macintosh project. However, the test results inferred that Biomagnetic treated water and Bacillus licheniformis had highest positive and negative percentage difference while biochar treated sample showed equilibrium in both negative and positive percentage different but reduced more negatively on phenol antinutritional value all on the leaf and seed sample plant. Moreover, the variational analysis confirmed the efficacy of biomagnetic treated water followed by Bacillus licheniformis and biochar sample plant informed importance of ipomea aquatica as biomass for biochar production verified via sequenced result obtained.
