Organic matter (OM) management is key to sustainable fertility and productivity of tropical soil systems. Short-term evaluation of the potentialsof foliage of neem and locust bean in soil fertility improvement, as measured by the productivity of maize, was carried out on a savanna Alfisol from 1995 to1997. The trees are indigenous to the savanna, and common in farms and homesteads in the region. The objective was to determine the effects of theseeasily renewable and cheap OM sources on maize… CONTINUE READING
