Growth, nutrient composition and straw yield of sorghum as affected by land configuration and wood-chips mulch on a sandy loam soil in northeast Nigeria



Growth, nutrient composition and straw yield of sorghum as affected by land configuration and wood-chips mulch on a sandy loam soil in northeast Nigeria



International Journal of Agriculture and Biology 8(6): 770-773



Six land configuration and wood chips mulch treatments were evaluated from 1999-2002 on a sandy loam soil, northeast Nigeria for their effects on growth, leaf nutrient composition and straw yield of sorghum. Treatments evaluated include: flat bed (FB), open ridge (OR), tied ridge (TR), FB + mulch (FBM), OR + mulch (ORM) and TR + mulch (TRM).
