  • A 56 days incubation study was set up to investigate the effects of combined application of effective microorganism (EM) with composted or fresh organic materials on soil nutrient dynamics. Treatments include; Water (W) as Control, EM, Kraal manure (KM) + W, KM + EM, Lawn clippings (LC) +W, LC+EM, Commercial compost (CC) + W and CC + EM. A CO efflux study was also set up with the same treatments. The evolution 2 of CO -C was significantly (P>0.05) higher with the application of lawn clippings… CONTINUE READING
