The potentials of different plant residue composts as organic fertilizer on the growth, nutrient uptake and yield as well as economic performance of tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum) were studied in a two-season experiment. The plant residues used were maize (Ms), guinea grass (Gg) and cowpea stovers (Cs). The treatments studied were 2, 4 and 6 t ha -1 of each of the compost types and the recommended NPK fertilizer (N 60, P 2 O 5 32, K 2 O 20 kg ha -1 ) and non-fertilized control plots as check… CONTINUE READING
