 en Growth Performance of Five Bean ( Phaseolus check for this species in other resources spp) Varieties as Influenced by Organic Amendment


The objective of this study was to investigate the influence of organic amendment on the growth performance of five bean varieties and soil chemical characteristics. From the results, the application of soil amendment had significant (P≤ 0.05) effect on bean plant girth, number of leaves, number of branches, mean number of flowers, total fresh weight and total dry weight, of the bean five varieties planted. The increase in the bean growth observed in this research can be attributed to the improvement of the soil nutrients by the compost manure. The results from this research show that organic manure can be formulated and blended from wood sawdust, palm fruit waste and poultry waste which are chiefly abundant in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria.
