Influence of soil physical properties, chemical contents and rhizobacterial loads on soil quality in maize fields of Southwestern Nigeria

July 2024 - Vol 23 Num. 7

In Southwestern Nigeria (SWN), the high demand for maize has resulted in increased levels of maize cultivation. However, continuous maize cultivation is directly or indirectly affecting soil nutrient reserves. This study therefore assessed and compared the soil physical conditions, chemical contents, and rhizobacterial...
