Boron and molybdenum fertility of 50 representative savannah soils of Nigeria were evaluated through laboratory analyses and greenhouse cropping. Results revealed generally low levels of both nutrients (average of 0.25 and 0.11 ppm B and Mo respectively) although apprecialbe yield responses (dry matter) were obtained in only a relatively few cases. The low nutrient levels were attributed to the interplay of the low organic matter levels and the coarse-textured nature of the soils. These two… CONTINUE READING
