    Abstract: This work revisited the mixed convection flow formation in a uniformly heated vertical porous channel filled with porous material as discussed by Chandrasekhara and Nayrayanan [11]. Using perturbation method as well as numerical solution, Chandrasekhara and Nayrayanan [11] discussed the behavior of the fluid as well as rate of heat transfer. This m... Show More

    Abstract: Seed priming is currently a wide used commercial process that accelerates the germination rate and improves seedling uniformity in several crops. A laboratory study was conducted to evaluate the effect of grain priming treatments on barley grain germination and seedling growth under drought stress imposed by PEG-6000. The experiment was performed e... Show More
