Abstract :

Field experiments were conducted in two locations at Owo in early and late crop seasons (2007) to compare the effects of poultry manure at 0, 10, 20, 30, 40 t [ha.sup.-1] and 300 kg [ha.sup.-1] NPK 15:15:15 fertilizer on nutrient uptake and yield of tomato. The sites were located within the forest savannah transition zone of southwest Nigeria. The experiments were replicated three times in randomized complete block design. The test soil was slightly acidic, low in OM, N and P. Application of poultry manure and 300kg [ha.sup.-1] NPK fertilizer significantly (P Key words: early crop, late crop, nutrient concentration, yield
