Integrated manure and fertilizer use, maize production and sustainable soil fertility in sub humid zone of West Africa



Integrated manure and fertilizer use, maize production and sustainable soil fertility in sub humid zone of West Africa



Journal of Agronomy 6(2): 302-309



In the sub-humid zone of northern Ghana, maize is a high rated crop and farmers use various technologies for soil fertility maintenance and to increase grain yield. Technology chosen usually depends on the resources available to the farm household.
