Soy Bean is one of the staple foods in Africa. It is used for both food and drinks of different types. Desertification, over cultivation and over grazing had limited its production. This work examines the growth responses of three accessions of soybean (Glycine max) as influenced by Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi (AMF) inoculation, Poultry manure and different inorganic fertilizers applications. The seed sample for this study comprises of three (3) different accessions of soy-bean with seven (7) treatments which are Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF), combination of Abuscular Mycorrhizal fungi and NPK Fertilizer (AMF+NPK), combination of Abuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi with Poultry manure (AMF+PM), NPK Fertilizer only (NPK), Poultry Manure (PM), combination of NPK Fertilizer and Poultry Manure (NPK+PM) and the untreated which serves as control. Parameters measured were; leaf length.. Read More»
