A field experiment with 4 row spacings (60, 80, 100 and 120 cm) and 3 planting (Sole Krish, Sole Shivalika and Mixed) systems on tomato cv. Krish (Indeterminate) and Shivalika (Determinate) were laid out in Randomized Block Design (Factorial) with three replications. The results revealed that the 60 cm spacing and (50 % Krish + 50 % Shivalika) planting system in individual and interaction responded better with respect to fruit yield per unit area, harvest duration and economic returns due to greater crop biomass productions.

A survey was conducted to investigate the levels of Cd, Pb and As heavy metals in soils, leafy vegetables (lettuce plant), and irrigation water in areas characterized by intensive agricultural activities in Jordan. Thirteen farms from three locations (Jordan Valley, Alyadoda, and Jarash) were selected for this purpose. Ten P fertilizers that are most widely used by farmers were also collected and analyzed for heavy metals content.

Soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.], a legume native to East Asia contains up to 40% protein and 20% oil. Edamame, a popular vegetable soybean in East Asia, especially China and Japan, harvested at reproductive stages six and seven (R6 or R7) is gaining popularity in the US. Increased awareness of its nutritional quality through promotional campaigns and changing population demographics in the US have led to recent raise in US market demand for edamame. To meet the increasing market demand, frozen edamame from China and Taiwan has been imported.
