Abstract
This research work was carried out, to find the importance of computerized analysis on spoilage of sweet orange, before harvest and carriage to market in Nigeria. 4 Local governments, namely: (Ife East, Ife South, Ife Central and Ife North), local government areas were sampled. 3,200 open questionnaires were distributed to the 4 Local Governments, out of which 800 was used for farmers in each local government. A total of 32 different locations were visited and sampled in all the four Local Governments, out of which 100 questionnaires were used in each location. It was gathered that above 75% of the people supported that, the computerized analysis on spoilage of sweet orange, before harvest and carriage to market in Nigeria, was important, while less than 25% of the people, could not even understand whether there was any need, for the importance of computerized analysis on spoilage of sweet orange, before harvest and carriage to market in Nigeria or mot. The results from the questionnaires when using Pearson one-tailed correlation coefficient, however revealed that there was no significant difference from all the farmers visited and sampled, [p < 0.01] and [p < 0.05] table 5. This shows a strong positive correlation, which implying that, the importance of computerized analysis on spoilage of sweet orange, before harvest and carriage to market in Nigeria, is strongly influenced and enhanced farmer’s support, from the four local government areas, visited and sampled, in Ile-Ife Kingdom of Osun State, and Nigeria in general, and therefore had made the research work to become a reality, [p < 0.01] and [p < 0.05], table 5 respectively. The reasons may be due to the fact that, sweet oranges are not only, an excellent source and very rich in vitamin C, folic acid; it is also as a good source of dietary fiber, containing a host of other important nutrient element like: folate, thiamine, niacin, phosphorus, magnesium and copper. They are a good source of B vitamins including vitamin B1, pantothene acid and folate as well as vitamin A, calcium, copper and potassium and are also known to be fat free, sodium free and cholesterol free. Histogram with curve was used to depict the summary data of each of the local government areas sampled.
