Abstract

Soil physical properties play significant function in the yield of crop produce. Sustaining food supply of the teeming population depends on the degree of preserving soil physical properties, therefore enhancing soil productivity. Experiments were conducted to establish the influence of poultry and cow dung from different housing and stacking types on physical properties of soil following Telfairia occidentalis production in 2017 and 2018. Amendments were applied in both years after which data were analyzed using Analysis of Variance. The experiment reveals that amendments statistically increased soil porosity, moisture content, hydraulic conductivity and therefore reduced bulk density above control in both years. It is concluded that for improved soil physical properties in the study area, bagged poultry manure in palm fronds house (PPB) at 5.4 tha-1 is recommended to farmers.
