Surveys were carried out among processors in the Nyambaka district in the Adamawa region from November 2020 to December 2020. The traditional "Dadawa" manufacturing process consumes more effort and time. It does not vary by ethnicity, age, and level of education. It includes several operations: The first phase being doble cooking which lasts for about 12 hours and the second whose duration is about 30 minutes aerobic fermentation takes place for 72hours, the leaves of Annona senegalensis are used during this operation, the fermented product is dried in the sun. The product obtained is similar to that obtained from the seeds of Parkia biglobosa but it is more appreciated by the population because of its more pronounced taste.</em></p> BOURSI Jérémie, ABEGA Juste Philantrope, HOUJAYFA MOHAMAD OUSMAN, DAZECK DOUMBA Fanny Rosette, AMINATOU Hamida, ADJOUDJI OUSMAN Copyright (c) 2021 International Journal of Agriculture, Biology & Environment ( e-ISSN 2582-6107 ) https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 https://ijagri.org/index.php/ijagri/article/view/59 Sat, 24 Jul 2021 19:22:25 +0800 Influence of organic amendments on soil fertility and the growth of maize (Zea mays) https://ijagri.org/index.php/ijagri/article/view/57 <p>In recent years, the application of poultry manure and compost as a soil amendment has generated huge interest for the preservation of soil fertility by improving the physicochemical and biological properties of soil, and for the reduction of the negative effects of greenhouse emissions. In this study, we investigated the effect of two soil amendments, namely poultry manure and compost, on soil parameters and their influence on maize growth performance. The experiment was conducted at the nursery site at the University of Energy and Natural Resources where organic amendments were applied to the soil at different application rate compost (10 t/ha and 5 t/h) and poultry (10 t/ha and 5 t/h, respectively). The results show that organic amendments increased the NPK content of the soil. Plant growth parameters are also increased by the application of the organic amendment. There was no significant improvement in plant height, plant girth, and the number of leaves with the application of both poultry manure and compost. However, biomass yield and leaf area of plants significantly increased in soils amended with poultry manure and compost. Poultry manure was found to contain higher nutrients and contributed to higher maize growth than compost and the control. This study showed that organic amendments increased soil fertility and crop growth.</p> Meshack Appiah Ofori, Isaac Eminent , Isaac Sarfo, Collins Oduro Copyright (c) 2021 International Journal of Agriculture, Biology & Environment ( e-ISSN 2582-6107 ) https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 https://ijagri.org/index.php/ijagri/article/view/57 Thu, 29 Jul 2021 01:33:39 +0800
