    Study on the Feasibility of Chickpea Cultivation in Ampara Area in Sri Lanka.A. B. M. Jesfar, A. L. M. Rifky, M. H. M. Rinos & Ijarw Ijeais - 2018 - International Journal of Academic and Applied Research (IJAAR) 2 (3):6-13.
    Abstract: Chickpea is one of the main food crops in East Asia. As it contains high nutritional value, it has high demand in the world food market. Even though chickpea is mainly cultivated in India and China, Sri Lankan farmers did not trend to cultivate this crop. Therefore considerable amount of foreign exchange spent on import. This study will contribute to the country development in future. A study was conducted to study the feasibility of Chickpea cultivation in Ampara area. The (...)

    Effect of Far Infra-Red Radiation on Paddy Parboiling and Milling Qualities.A. M. M. Irfeey, A. B. F. Husna & A. L. M. Rifky - 2019 - International Journal of Academic and Applied Research (IJAAR) 3 (3):12-18.
    Abstract: Paddy parboiling is a hydrothermal process applied as a treatment to rough rice, prior to normal milling stage. The parboiling process consists of three separate operations as; soaking, steaming and drying. The traditional parboiling soaking process needs high water consumption, causes high water pollution, air pollution and high energy consumption than using far –infrared (FIR) method. This study was conducted to use the FIR on parboiling process and to test quality of milled rice. The paddy sample BG358 (1kg) was (...)

    Suitability Evaluation of Affordable Organic Materials as Substrates to Multiply Trichoderma Spp. In Soil.A. M. M. Irfeey, M. H. M. Shilmy & A. L. M. Rifky - 2018 - International Journal of Academic and Applied Research (IJAAR) 2 (8):23-30.
    Abstract: Use of antagonistic ability of Trichoderma spp. to control plant disease is an alternative disease management practice that protects the environment from the hazardous effect of the chemicals. Low density of population of Trichoderma spp. in the normal field is a challenge to gain best effect of antagonist over soil pathogens. Seven organic substrate treatments; compost, cow dung, paddy husk, paddy straw, coir dust, Gliricidia sepium and control were tested for multiplication and long-term survival of Trichoderma spp.. Three test (...)

  4. Food Preservative Characteristics of Dehydrated Murunga (Moringa Oleifera) Leaf Powder.A. J. H. Mubarak, A. L. M. Rifky, M. H. M. Shabry & C. S. Ranadheera - 2018 - International Journal of Academic and Applied Research (IJAAR) 2 (8):18-22.
    Abstract: Murunga (Moringa oleifera) is an underutilized plant in Sri Lanka with food, nutritional and medicinal value. This study was carried out to evaluate the food preservative characteristics of dehydrated Murunga leaf powder. Soya meat (textured soy protein) and Dhal curries (cooked) and boiled rice (Suwandel variety and red rice) treated with different levels of Murunga leaf powder (1.5, 2.5, 4.5 and 6%) were selected for this experiment. Sensory evaluation was conducted with the help of 30 untrained panelists using a (...)
