Abstract

This study examined the effects of applying inorganic urea and chicken droppings on tomato growth and yield in comparison. The investigation yielded three distinct aims. The Biology Demonstration Garden at the Alvan Ikoku Federal College of Education in Owerri served as the experimental location. Laboratory studies were carried out on the soil samples taken from each plot and poultry manure's chemical analysis was also assessed. A Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) was used to experiment. The tomato seed used for the nursery is a Dera f1 seed. To collect data, a sample population consisting of fourteen middle stands was used. The experiment's findings demonstrated that although urea has a lasting effect on plants, chicken droppings had less of an impact on seed germination and growth. Therefore, it was suggested that the government raise public knowledge of the dangers of using inorganic manure and lower the cost of organic manure for farmers
