We investigated soil microbial biomass response to incorporating a non-leguminous [perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne)] and two leguminous [Dutch white clover (Trifolium repens) and alfalfa (Medicago sativa)] cover crops into a newly established Fraser fir (Abies fraseri) plantation. Groundcover treatments consisted of growing each cover crop in the(More)
This study aimed to identify the nutrient composition and antioxidant properties of seeds of Moringa oleifera and pulps of Adansonia digitata and Parkia biglobosa. Crude proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, crude fibers, ashes and mineral elements were determined. Total phenols, flavonoids, proanthocyanidins of seeds and pulps were reported. The seeds of(More)
Incorporating cover crops into Christmas tree plantations may potentially improve soil fertility, tree growth and quality and be an alternative to commercial nitrogen (N) fertilizers. However, cover crops may compete with the trees for water and other nutrients than N. This study was carried out to assess whether soil fertility, tree survival and growth(More)
